Beauty Bay’s Limited Edition Little Black Box

Hey everyone,
Today, I wanted to show you a new release from Beauty Bay, after recently releasing a new makeup range called ‘BeautyBay Collection’, they have now released a beauty box called ‘Little Black Box’ and it features products from this new range.  The BeautyBay Collection is really reasonably priced and features a small, but nice range of products from eyeshadow palettes to nail polishes.
You can see a full list of the 38 products available here.
But the beauty box is something that really caught my eye as it would be a great introduction to the range and it would also make a perfect gift for someone too. For £15 and with free delivery, you get five products, all of which are full size products available to purchase separately on the website.
The box is beautifully packaged in a gift box, that’s what made me think it would be a great Christmas or Birthday present for a loved one. The range of products available are great and it is well worth its £15 cost, as the value of the products if purchased separately would be £29.
Purple Nail Polish 12ml
This beautiful, deep, vampy purple nail varnish is something I am definitely missing in my collection. Perfect for winter, I absolutely love the look of this shade and its definitely a shade suitable for everyone. This is described as highly durable and is said to apply smoothly in two coats, it is also free from DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde. This retails at £5 on its own.
Lip and Eye Primer 8ml
I have a few eye primers which I really need to use more, but I don’t own any lip primers. This is a great idea, I’ve never come across a primer suitable for eyes and lips before so this sounds like a brilliant little product. This creamy neural primer makes lipstick colours appear more intense and prevents feathering and discolouration, whilst when applied to the eyelids, the primer smoothes and diminishes the appearance of fine lines to prevent creasing and melting of eyeshadow. This is suitable for all lip products and both powder and cream eyeshadows and the combination of Silicone and Aloe Vera also smoothes and soothes the skin. This retails at £4 if bought separately.
SPF20 Mineral Foundation in ‘Medium Beige’ 10g
This foundation retails at £10 on its own, or for 2g of product, it will set you back £5. I have never tried powder foundations, because I can rarely wear normal powder because my skin is usually so dry. This powder has the consistency of a loose powder, but the coverage of a liquid foundation. SPF20 Mineral Foundation is made in the UK, formulated with natural ingredients and is free from Talc, Parabens and Sulphates. The SPF20 provides protection from the sun and this powder can be applied lightly for sheer coverage or it can be built up to a more full coverage. This product is described as being suitable for complexions that suffer from acne, rosacea and eczema because it allows your skin to breathe. The shade Medium Beige is suitable for light to medium skin tones but is universally flattering to all undertones.
Light Me Up Compact Battery Mirror in Pure White
I absolutely love the idea of this, I have wanted one of these compact light up mirrors for a long time. This little mirror is designed to eliminate shadows and give you the perfect lighting for applying makeup, wherever you are. This is a light and powerful compact mirror with two mirrors, one with built in LED lights and one with 2x magnification. You can fold it back on itself so it stands on its own and you can have both hands free to apply your makeup. This retails at £5 on its own and is also available in black.
Blending Sponge in ‘Fuchsia Pink’
Blending sponges are becoming increasingly popular and although I haven’t tried one before, I am eager to test one out. This is easy to use, thanks to the ergonomic design and can be used with mineral, powder and liquid foundations. It is designed so you can use the wide edge for coverage across the majority of your face and then the pointy edge is used for the contoured areas around the eyes and nose. This is ultra soft and latex free and retails at £5, if you were to purchase it on its own.
I have a ridiculous amount of makeup/accessories and the fact that I don’t own any of these products, is definitely a selling point for me. Such a great range of products and excellent value for money, especially with the free delivery. This box is special edition with limited availability and you can purchase yours here.
Thanks for reading!
