This month ASOS brought us the “full package” with everything you need to get ready for Spring makeup and there are some great goodies in this box!
First is a skincare goodie, Charlotte Tilburys Magic Cream. This has the wonder ingredient of the moment hyaluronic acid, rosehip oil and Shea butter to keep your skin hydrated and on point. This is a sample size but enough so that you can get an idea of whether you like it. It’s a nice cream, sinks in really well and it’s quite a rich texture. I personally wouldn’t go back to it purely for the scent, it has a faint rose smell and unfortunately that’s just not a scent I enjoy.
Next is a beautiful light setting powder from a Ciate to set makeup and reduce shine. This is their Everyday Vacay Setting Powder and it is so incredibly fine. It also has a coconut scent which is really lovely and definitely makes me think of going on holiday! It’s a translucent powder as well so no worries about matching to your foundation or equally you could wear this without foundation just to reduce shine on your face if you wanted to have a low makeup day. This is a full size of the powder and is £18 to purchase.
Next is my favourite item from this box, a Morphe 9V Pan eyeshadow palette. This palette is called Vintage Rose and is a collection of nude, dusty rose and browns. A lovely neutral palette which you can create a fab range of looks with. It’s a perfect size for travel as well with a nice selection of shimmer, matte and transition shades, definitely one I am enjoying at the moment and easy to use for every day. This is full size and costs £12.
A travel size is included from Benefit with their new They’re Real Magnet Extreme Mascara, which aims to give a false lash effect. I’ve used the original formula of this before and I really liked it. With this one I found that it flakes quite a bit over the course of the day so although it makes my lashes look great unfortunately as I wear contacts flaking all day from my mascara isn’t great for me so I’d give this a thumbs down. It’s a shame as it does really lengthen and lift but I just can’t deal with the flaking!
Our final item is from Sleek Makeup and it’s a clear lipgloss which will would be lovely to wear alone or on top of a favourite lipstick. The thing I do like about this is that the applicator isn’t made of sponge it’s plastic. So I’m thinking you can easily wipe it off after applying over your fave lipstick and avoid getting a dirty looking applicator sponge.
I absolutely loved this box it is amazing value as it costs just £12 but the value of all of the items was £56.49! My stand out products are the Morphe palette and Ciate Powder and I know I will get a lot of use of them.
What do you all think ? Did any of you manage to get your hands on this box?
If you want to try and grab next months box in May I recommend getting the ASOS app and periodically searching for beauty box, from around the 1st of the month. Sometimes they go live on the 1st other times it’s been around the 6th and there isn’t really ever any notice given.
