A Rather Bazaar Beauty Box | Review

Bazaar Beauty BoxBazaar Beauty Box by Latest In Beauty

Remember when beauty boxes were a thing? It’s been a while since it was popular for companies to charge us an arm and a leg for travel size samples; you were one of the lucky few if you found a rare full size product in your box. After the hype died down, I personally took to researching products and buying the full size versions. And I was happy. But then VA went and sent me a link to the latest ‘Latest in Beauty’ box. It included a collaboration with none other than Harper’s Bazaar – a brand that had won me over previously with their Birchbox collaboration. I couldn’t resist finding out more.

So what’s inside?

The limited-edition Spring/Summer beauty edit features high-end favourites from the likes of Laura Mercier, Elemis, Dermalogica, and many more.

  • Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant (full size)
  • Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder (full size)
  • MAC Prep + Prime Fix + (full size)
  • Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair  (full size)
  • Benefit They’re Real Mascara (full size)
  • Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Day Cream (15ml travel size)
  • Caudalie Vinoperfect Brightening Essence (50ml travel size)
  • Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask (15ml travel size)
  • Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser (30ml travel size)
  • Alpha H Liquid Gold (50ml travel size)
  • Shavata Complimentary Brow-Shape (gift card)

Bazaar Beauty Box – final thoughts

This box is worth an incredible £224! But is it worth £50 (that’s the RRP) of your hard earned cash? Well quite frankly, yes it is. This box includes some amazing – and expensive – products. I already had plans to repurchase the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, and the MAC Prep + Prime Fix +. So straight off I’d saved myself £18, and that was without counting all the extra products that came in the box.

The amount of full size products is way more than most beauty boxes. And these are popular products, they’re not just cast offs from some company you’ve never heard of. I’ve already started using a few of the items, and I’m excited to try out all of the others (yes, all of them). £50 is a lot of money, but I am so glad I splurged on this.

Sneak Peek: MAC Maleficent Make-up Collection

It’s the moment make-up and Disney fans alike have been waiting for. Finally we are being given a sneak peek at the MAC Maleficent make-up range.
Naturally the products in the range are fitting to the character herself. You’ll find a deep red lipstick (aptly named True Love’s Kiss), a lipglass and a lip pencil, for the ultimate sultry pout. Of course you wouldn’t wear a perfect lip without without a perfect base. MAC know this too, so they’ve included a beauty powder and a sculpting powder (for devilishly sharp cheekbones). A nude eyeshadow palette is complimented by luscious false eyelashes. And if you were always jealous of Maleficent’s impeccably manicured talons, you’ll be able to mimic her style with the 3 nail polish shades (red, black and nude) in the range. Some of MACs known and trusted products, such as the prep + prime highlighter, eyebrow pencil and eyeliner, will complete the range.
As with MACs big collaborations, these are bound to go fast. The True Love’s Kiss lipstick is expected to sell out as soon as it’s launched! If you want to fight fellow fans, visit MAC to sign-up and be one of the first to know when the range is launched.

MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection

Recently I don’t find myself posting too often about new beauty product releases.
I think it’s mainly because I don’t get too excited about products that often, and I don’t want to post something that a ton of other beauty bloggers have done – or at least I try not to. So you know I am excited about a collection if I blog about it.
MAC is a great beauty brand, but I’m never really wowed by their collections.
That has changed though with their new Marilyn Monroe Collection, which is released this month.
You can probably guess what it was that drew me to this one in particular – yep, the red lipstick!
I also love the selection of products in this collection, not three or four products but a wide variety – in various shades.
I can see myself dropping a lot of money on this collection – I pretty much want everything!
The collection includes:
Beauty powder, blushers, brow finishers/markers, kohl pencils, mascara, eye shadows, 
eyelashes, lip liners, lipsticks, dazzleglass and nail polishes.
The Collection is released in October 2012 and will be available in-store and online.
