It seems like Beauty Boxes are really making a comeback in 2017, I felt like they started to feel very same same as so many beauty box companies were including identical products. There was very little variety and that, for me, led to them not being exciting to receive. That being said the few boxes I’ve had this year have been well put together and I have discovered some fantastic brands. So Feelunique have introduced Powered by Feelunique which offers a stellar line-up of carefully curated Beauty boxes.
I have been testing out their latest release the Universal Beauty Box which contains a really great selection of makeup from all corners of the globe, with everything from a vegan and halal certified eyeliner to a finishing powder suitable for all skin tones and types. It is an exciting mixed bag of products, none of which I have used before and quite a few brands are also new to me.
Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder 10g
The Pro Hygiene Collection Antibacterial Makeup Spray 15ml
Bourjois Rouge Edition Souffle De Velvet Lipstick 8ml – Coquelic’oh!
Elizabeth Arden Lasting Impression Mascara Black 2.5ml
Laura Geller Beauty Spackle Treatment Hydrating Make-Up Primer 59ml
PHB Ethical Beauty – Eye liner Pencil 4g – Black
I am very excited about trying the Nude by Nature Translucent Powder and I am hoping this is going to help keep my makeup in place as well as give me that soft focus finish. The powder feels very finely milled so I think it will be quite lightweight on the skin. The packaging is very practical too, it has a mesh which acts like a cushion and only allows a small amount of powder through at a time so if like me you are super clumsy and mineral products can often get quite messy this will help with wastage and spillage. You get a whopping 10g of product and loose powders always last me such a long time.
The Bourjois Rouge Edition Souffle De Velvet Lipstick is in a stunning red shade, I like that it’s quite sheer (but buildable) and has a velvet matte finish. I really think this red would look great on everyone. Very excited to try this and take it away with me to Amsterdam.
I love trying out new mascara and I have heard mixed reviews about this Elizabeth Arden Lasting Impression Mascara. The wand is quite big but tapered and it promised to grab every lash helping separate, lift and lengthen. So I like the sound of that. The formula contains Ceramides (1,3, and 6) plus vitamin C to help reinforce and restore lashes natural protective barrier. Avocado and olive oils condition lashes and help seal moisture while building length for a defined, silky lash look. Its a decent travel size and I am looking forward to seeing how I get on with it.
The contents of this box are worth £75 but it is RRP £28! Out of the 6 products in this box 4 are full sized and the other 2 are deluxe samples, so that is incredible value for money. Let me know if you have tried any of the Feelunique Best of Beauty Boxes & if you are planning on treating yourself to this latest release.
*This post contains PR samples but all words and thoughts are my own.
FYI – The small Caudalie sample is not included in this beauty box, it snuck in there whilst I was taking photos & I completely forgot about it.
