You Beauty

I know in my last two You Beauty posts i haven't been wowed by the selection of options available but this month has more than made up for that! There was so much to choose from this month but there were two stand out products for me.

My first choice was the Illamasqua lipstick in Sangers. I really liked the fact that you knew what shade this would be, as far too many times I've opted for a lipstick only to receive a beige toned one which i never use. For me i can never own too many red lipsticks and this shade is different to the ones i already own. They describe this as a blood red but for me its not as in your face as most of the reds in my collection. It leaves a matt finish which can be drying and so far i have other lipsticks with better staying power so I'm not sure i would pay the £18.50 for it full price but I'd defiantly add this to my beauty box again.

My second choice was the #lipglam as I'm always on the look out for something that can sooth my lips and actually works to make them soft rather than just leaving me feeling like i constantly need to add more. This really seems to work for making my lips soft and keeping the moisture in so that I'm not constantly applying  another layer. It doesn't have any smell or taste too it and is made from 100% natural ingredients. If you do get this then be warned when it comes its pretty much solid and it took me a good 5 minutes to warm it up between my hands before i could even get it out of the tube but it has been pretty cold here so I'm guessing this wouldn't be such an issue in the summer. Lastly this leaves a gloss like finish on your lips which is sticky so for that reason i wouldn't buy it again however i will continue to use it during the winter as it does seem to really work.

So the contents of my box excluding the extra treats that You Beauty add was just over £28! That is amazing for something that costs you £6.95 including delivery.
The extras this month were a nakd bar and Dove youthful vitality shampoo and conditioner. I tried the bar and that very quickly went into the bin its just not my thing! I haven't tried the shampoo and conditioner yet but they are travel size so great for taking away with you and really good to be added in as an extra treat.

I am super impressed with his month box and i can't wait to see what next moth has in store. I would really recommend this beauty box if you like to choose what you will get and want a budget friendly option.
