Latest in Beauty Glamour Beauty Box

I have a turbulent relationship with beauty boxes. Since I am a total sucker for things wrapped in tissue in nice boxes, especially when there's an element of surprise as to what the box contains (this goes back to childhood. I'm still secretly hoping one day there's going to be a pony inside *crosses everything and wishes hard*). Anyway, as with lots of things in life, beauty boxes for me often turn out to be a big fat disappointment. Even though I love receiving them, excitedly ripping open the tissue paper and marveling at the little bottles of wonder that are inside, this fades around five minutes later when I realise I'll never use 80% of the contents, and they are promptly relegated to my 'One day I'll use these. No, really, I will' drawer.

I then vow to never buy another beauty box again. Until next month, when I see the #bblogger Twitter feed clogged up with instagrammed photos of the AMAZING boxes people have received. And so the cycle begins.

But putting all that aside, when I saw the Latest in Beauty Glamour Beauty Edit Box I knew I had to have it. Because, well, it's freakin' awesome, to put it bluntly.
I won't go through all the contents (you can see these on the link above), but I will say that I plan on using EVERYTHING in this little beauty. The Illamasqua lippie (I received the shade Rosepout) is GORGEOUS and very wearable. Plus I've wanted to try Illamasqua's lipsticks for ever. I'm really looking forward to trying the Magnifibres as I'm constantly on the lookout for anything that makes my lashes look longer and fluttery-er (and I'm too lazy to keep going to the salon for extensions). I haven't tried the Toni & Guy Glamour Volume Plumping Whip but am very excited to do so as - and I think I've mentioned this, oh, one or two times - I LOVE big hair. I haven't used Bourjois for years but the little cream blush pot in the box is so cute AND I've been after a nice peachy-nude shade for a while (I got Nude Velvet). So along with the other bits I will definitely (yes, DEFINTELY!) use, like nail polish, sun cream, cleansing oil etc, I am a happy bunny. My faith in Beauty Boxes is restored. Well, no it isn't actually, but I will be keeping an eye out for more of LIB's awesome boxes.

Have you ordered the Glamour Beauty Edit Box?
