My first Love Me Beauty subscription was in January and I was really impressed – I loved being able to choose the products I wanted as opposed to receiving a box of surprises, it was nice for a change – and I was more than pretty chuffed with the products I chose which you can see in my full review here. The moment the February ‘Love Me Beauty’ email hit my inbox and I saw that brands such as Kat Von D and Charlotte Tilbury were on offer, I was on their website in an instant. So what did I spend my 60 credit monthly allowance on this time? Lets have a closer look….
The bag itself – With Love Me Beauty you receive a Makeup bag each month with the products in instead of a box like alot of the other monthly beauty subscription services, and this month’s is a great one. I love the red, black and white artwork, perfect for Valentine’s and its just a fab makeup bag in general – great size, a zip top, wipe clean interior and a funky, fun design. I will definitely be getting a lot of use out of this.
Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Samples – These samples are pretty unique, I have never seen any like this before. The lipstick sample comes in an envelope style packaging and inside is a sheet with the lipstick colour and in the texture/formula. You press your lips around the lip shape on the sheet (abit like you would if you fold a tissue and pucker when applying lipstick) and voila! – the sheet transfers the lip swatch to your lips. I received 2 samples of each shade and think its a great way to try Charlotte Tilbury shades before purchasing them. I ordered 2 lots of samples, one in her K.I.S.S.I.N.G formula range where I got the shades So Marilyn, Nude Kate and Bitch Perfect, and the other was her Matte Revolution formula range where I got the shades Amazing Grace, Red Carpet Red, and Very Victoria – and I am already in love with the shades Bitch Perfect and Very Victoria so I will definitely be purchasing the full lipsticks in these.
Kat Von D EyeLiners – Ink Liner & Tattoo Liner – I have been wanting to try these much hyped Kat Von D liquid waterproof liners for some time and could never decide between the 2 which one to purchase so I was delighted when I saw them both there for grabs. Both are in black and I cannot wait to try these out on a winged liner. I will definitely do a comparison blog post between these 2 in the not so distant future.
Nuxe Gentle Exfoliating Gel – To be honest I added this to my basket to use up my remaining credits for the month, however I am impressed. Nuxe is a great face and skincare brand and on first application I really like this exfoliating gel and it smells so feminine and fresh, so I am highly delighted I added this to my shopping credit basket now.
Overall it was a second consecutive hit for Love Me Beauty, I loved January and now I love February’s gift. I am used to the trial size of the products now so it wasn’t quite a shock as it was in January when I first opened the packaging. Again each product I will use til empty, which to me makes Love Me Beauty a unique and value-for-money monthly subscription service. I have just chosen my March gifts so I am looking forwards to receiving and sharing them with you very soon.
