The Capital Beauty Box first impressions


Hello lovelies, only two more days until it's the weekend and four more days until mothers day so there is still plenty of time to buy your mum a present. Speaking of shopping, I recently bought the Capital Beauty Box from Latest in Beauty and I was so happy to get it in the post today. I love Latest in Beauty, they always have such wonderful beauty boxes and their collaborations with other brands (Glamour, Capital FM, Givenchy...) are awesome. Their beauty boxes are perfect for beauty lovers and a fantastic way to try out lots of fantastic beauty goodies. I could literally praise Latest in Beauty all day but you would probably get bored.

Anyhow, I really liked the look of the Capital Beauty Box and it is the first collaboration they have done with Capital FM. You may be thinking what does Capital FM have to do with beauty or makeup, well they do get to go behind the scenes, interview lots of fabulous celebs and probably know quite a few of their beauty secrets. I really liked the look of the box and it had a couple of brands I had never tried before, so I knew it was a must have. The box is worth £48 and you only have to pay £14.95, plus you get free shipping so it seemed like a no brainer to me.  I will be doing a full review of most products, but here are my first impressions to start with:

Rimmel 60 seconds super shine nail polish by Rita Ora

I got the shade Glastonberry which is a pretty red/berry colour. It is the perfect shade for Summer as it is bright and cheerful. I haven't tried out any of the Rita Ora nail varnishes before, so I'm looking forward to reviewing it on here and seeing if I need to rush out to buy more from the range.

Pixi lip blush (£12.50)

Part of what drew me to the box was the Pixi lip blush, I haven't tried any products from the brand before and love testing new products. That's what makes beauty boxes so much fun, you end up discovering so many different cosmetics and you don't have to pay full price to do so. I have been really lucky with the shades of products in this beauty box, I received Energy which is a light coral apricot lip blush and will be good for Spring/Summer. I am a big fan of coral lip products, so this will be a great new addition to my collection.

Collection Eyes Uncovered Palette (£2.99)

I have never really tried anything from Collection before a part from their amazing concealer, so it will be fun seeing what their eyeshadow palette is like. I really like the nude shades in there and think they will look good for any occasion.

Stila smudge stick waterproof eye liner (£13)

Another brand I have been wanting to get my hands on is Stila, their packaging looks so pretty and sophisticated. I have heard such good things about their eye liners and people seem to really like them, so I am really glad they included this in the box.

Burt's Bees lip shimmer (£5.99)

I'm so happy with the Burt's Bees lip shimmer, I got it in a beautiful pink shade and am ecstatic to try it out. I was hoping for Peony, Apricot, Grapefruit, Strawberry or Watermelon, and I was lucky to get Grapefruit which looks amazing!! It also has a nice minty fresh smell to it, so another point there for having a scented lip product.

Collection lengthening mascara (£3.99)

I love trying out new mascaras and always go for completely different brands to see what is good or not. It must be a good mascara if it is in the box, so I look forward to using it.



I also got a Jimmy Choo perfume sample of Flash, temporary tattoos and a nail buffer. I am really impressed with this set and it looks like the perfect beauty box for Spring/Summer. It was really fun opening it and seeing what shades I got, I love what I have so far and will definitely be trying most of it on tomorrow. I cannot wait to see what other beauty boxes, Latest in Beauty will come out with and they should definitely do another collaboration with Capital FM.

  6. Oh that's really annoying! Was none of it any good? I have never tried Glossybox as there are only five products in there and I tend to just wait to see what special boxes Latest In Beauty come out with. I do love the Capital Beauty Box and would definitely recommend it! :) x

  7. There was a few goodies in there but most of them were more in the "meh" category. I mean I will still try them but I wouldn't have minded getting something else. I'm gonna check if that one is available here in Germany.
