Latest in Beauty Glamour Beauty Box

Its been a while since I last purchased a beauty box, over a year in fact, I explained why I stopped subscribing here.
When I saw the newest release from latest in beauty I knew I just had to have it. The 'Glamour Beauty Box'  is in conjunction with Glamour Magazine's Editor Alessandra Steinherr, and contains some absolutely fabulous products. The box is £16.95 (free P&P) and is worth £86.15, so an absolute bargain if nothing else!

Rimmel Instant Tan BB Skin Perfector
This is a perfect addition to the box, especially now we're in summer. I've tried the original instant tanner from Rimmel and really liked it so I'm pleased to now have this. The colour I have is medium matte which is exactly what I would of picked if I was buying it in a shop. The colour is perfect for me, a nice deep sun kissed shade that lasts 24 hours and can then be washed off easily the next day.
Velvotan Tanning Mitt
If you're an avid fake tanner like myself you can never have enough tanning mitts, they're perfect for applying the tan, whether its one that develops over time or like the one above which is instant. No more orange palms with this baby!
Toni & Guy Volume Plumping Whip
A cream based styling cream that is applied to damp hair/towel dried hair and then styled as normal. The cream creates body and volume to the hair without the crunchy feeling that some other volumiser's leave.

Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection Sun Lotion SPF30
This is a must have product for summer, no one wants to look like a lobster on the beach do they? SPF30, which smells great and doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy or tacky, what more do you want from a sunscreen?

High Magnifibres Brush on False Lashes
I've seen this crop up in a few beauty boxes over the past year, a mascara that contains fibres to thicken and lengthen the lashes without the need for falses. I wear eyelash extensions so I'm unable to use this but I will definitely pass it on to a friend to use!
Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Lacquer
I know Crabtree and Evelyn are known for their skin care products but I was unaware they also produced nail polishes as well. The colour I have is 'Apple/Rouge Sublime', a gorgeous true red shade with a hint of iridescence to it, perfect for the winter months and a shade I'll definitely be adorning this Christmas time.
Bourjois Cream Blush
These are the perfect cream to powder blushes, the shade I have is no 2, one of which I already own but never the less great for summer and I just love the colour, a peachy coral shade which lifts the skin tone and delivers a healthy flush to the cheeks.
DHC Cleansing Oil
I have actually tried this before in a previous beauty box and I absolutely love it. You apply it to dry skin and massage it in. The oil breaks down all types of make up even water proof mascara and makes light work of removing a full face at the end of the day. I'm so happy to have this back in my life again!
Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick
This is the 'pièce de rèsistance' of the box, an Illamasqua lipstick from their latest collection. The shade I have is 'Rosepout'  the perfect nude colour! I haven't tried any products from them before so when I saw this in the box it was a done deal, I had to have it!
