Latest In Beauty Givenchy Box

Hi guys,

I'm back with another beauty box from Latest In Beauty. They've collaborated with British Beauty Blogger to give you some fab Givenchy goodies to try :)

Again beautifully wrapped and even the sticker and tissue paper was embossed with the Givenchy logo! 

Included in the box was samples of the his and her perfume. I actually really like the female scent which is Dahlia Divin. It's my kind of perfume, kinda reminds me of Lady Millions :) strong but with a slight sweet fruity/floral tone to it.

You get to try some of the face products like the Hydra Sparkling Moisturizer which is lovely, thicker than a lotion so I use it at night and sinks into the skin without leaving a greasy residue.
Hydra Sparkling One Minute Glow face scrub. Leaves your face feeling really clean and smooth.
Both smell nice and are lovely to use. I had no problems (I'm quite sensitive)

What I was most excited to try was the Nude Look BB cream from the Hydra Sparkling Range. I got shade medium beige. The texture is quite runny, like the Rimmel one. But it's easy to blend and covers well. It also offers an impressive SPF30 skin protection. Enjoyed using this BB cream :)

You can also go get a 5 day sample of the foundation from a Givenchy counter plus you can get your make up done. I've not taken advantage yet but I will be soon!

Next was the interesting part. You get a sample of the Phenomen'Eyes Mascara in black. This mascara has the weirdest wand I've ever seen.

It's a round ball wand! Lol. This mascara is actually great, formula wise but it was really strange applying it with such a unique tool. I like to get the brush to the start of my lash line and wiggle it up my lashes but I couldn't really do that with this brush. 

Finally my favourite thing in this box! A lipstick from the Le Rough collection. This was a mini size but you still get a decent lippie.

I got the shade 202 Rose Dressing. Omg this colour is amazing! It's like the perfect shade they could choose for this box. Kinda coral red and guys the formula! Like butter. So soft, so creamy. It was like an oil based lip balm. Just glides right on!


Now to buy the full size is £25! So this mini is well worth it for the cost of this box! In terms of lasting, I got a few hours but I'm terrible at getting lippies to last even those made for that purpose *sigh*
Overall I love this lipstick and the colour :)

Finally you get a purse or notebook as a bonus gift. I got the purse, I'd have preferred the notebook as I'd actually use that but my niece has decided she needs the purse for her handbag (note that she's 2! Haha)

This box was great for trying out different Givenchy products that I probably wouldn't normally consider. It costs £18.95 with free p&p! You can check it out here http://www.latestinbeauty.com/collections/collections/givenchy-the-british-beauty-blogger-edit

Have you tried this box? Do you have any fav Givenchy products? 

Much Love,
