The words ‘beauty box’ are now synonymous with drama, disappointment and complaining beauty bloggers, so it’s about time they were recognised and celebrated for what they were originally intended: a bite-sized sample of products that you may otherwise not have tried. Although I’m not a huge fan of the monthly subscription service, I do feel there’s a great place for boxes that bring together a collection of products with a purpose or collective benefit – the newest Latest in Beauty collaboration ticks all those boxes and more. Latest in Beauty have teamed up with The Session School to bring you the ultimate makeup ‘complexion perfection kit’, as chosen by the experts. The Session School was founded in 2008 by Dani Guinsberg, one of the leading makeup artists in the UK, to teach aspiring make-up artists and hairstylists all the tricks of the trade. The box features six fabulous make-up products, hand chosen by the school, to leave your skin looking effortlessly flawless and your eyes sultry. It contains an Inika foundation, a Pixi cheek tint, Benefit mascara, Daniel Sandler eyeliner, Bella Pierre eyeshadow and a Vintage Cosmetics eyeshadow brush, altogether worth over £55.00 – however, all this could be delivered direct to your door for only £11.95. Bargain! The Benefit mascara has had rave reviews, won many awards and is a staple of millions of women across the globe, while the Pixi gel provides a delicate flush of colour on the apple of the cheek. Inika provides a fabulous dewy and light foundation that brings radiance to skin, while the glittering eyeshadow is perfect for blending and helping the colour of the iris to pop. Add in a soft brush and a brilliant waterproof eyeliner, and you’ve pretty much got everything you need for your daily makeup in one little box. I love this collection and think it’s definitely eleven quid well spent, especially as you know exactly what you’re getting before you gamble away next week’s coffee budget; although the shades vary, everything within the kit is universal and great quality. I’m pretty sure there will be a lot of ladies looking fabulous and investing in full size versions of these key products sometime soon. Will that include you?
The exclusive ‘Complexion Perfection’ kit contains: Inika Liquid Mineral Foundation, Bellápierre Mineral Eye Shadow, The Vintage Cosmetics Company Eye Shadow Brush, Daniel Sandler Waterproof Eyeliner, Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel, Benefit They’re Real!
