I’d originally thought it was going to be hard to top the design of last months box, but this mermaid theme was even better.
Spectrum Collections A05 Brush (FULL SIZE!) | RRP £7
Surprisingly for a subscription service that hands our samples, the brush was full size!
As any lover of Spectrum brushes would know, this brush was suuuuper soft and the angle makes it perfect for bronzer!
LOC One and Done Shadow Stick in Rock Steady (FULL SIZE!) | RRP £8
Surprisingly again! There was another full size product in this month’s box which was pretty impressive.
This product claims to deliver 11 hours of crease-less, waterproof colour – perfect if you don’t want to mess around with multiple brushes and primers.
The colour appeared a dark brown but had a lovely sparkly sheen that made it appear a little lighter when I swatched it.
It was also really hard to get off my hand so there’s no doubt that this is truly long lasting.
NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi Usage Dry Oil Shimmer | RRP £20*
The oil itself smells beautiful ad leaves a lovely sheen on the skin, however doesn’t top the Body Shop version which also has more of a bronzing effect.
The Body Shop Honey Bronze is also cheaper, as you get 100ml of product for £18 – compared to NUXE which offers 50ml of product for £20.
While I will definitely make use of this, there’s definitely better dry oils on the market!
Whish Renewing Mud Mask | RRP £29*
The scent of this is enough to trick you into thinking your on holiday!
This exfoliating mud mask is packed with fruit enzymes and claims to brighten and purify your skin.
I applied this to my face for just 2 minutes – leave for only 15 seconds if you’re sensitive – ad it left my skin feeling super clean and soft! (and smelling amazing).
Number 4 Sugar Texturizing Spray | £20
The spray claims to achieve them beachy waves everyone craves and lasts all day.
I did try this and actually found that it kept my hair under control in the heat and humidity of the summer – so wasn’t as bad as I first thought!
