I’m sorry to keep chatting about beauty boxes recently. (I’m not really.) I hardly ever write about boxes any more unless they’re really good or really not good. But I’ve got an absolute corker to share with you today in the form of the Latest in Beauty x Sunday Times Style limited edition…
This baby isn’t going to hang around for long so I highly recommend you snap it up as quickly as possible if you’re even the tiny bit interested. (You can buy from Latest In Beauty directly.) However if you need a little bit more persuasion, let’s have a look at why this is a collaboration you’ll want in on!
Firstly this box is going to cost £46 but give you a whopping £229 worth of products inside. Which is pretty epic in terms of investment return. Not only that but there’s 6 full sized products inside too, along with a lot of deluxe travel sized samples and the odd sample too. Overall every product comes in a good size that you’ll be able to use and enjoy.

And secondly the products inside are all geared towards the summer and giving you everything you need for a great beauty regime this season. Which means you’re covered for hair, make up, skincare, nails and fragrance. And all of the products are from the biggest brands in beauty. So the box is a great all-rounder.
Key products to highlight that really make this box a stand-out out for me would be the Suqqu Eyeshadow Palette which is the most premium palette I’ve ever received in a beauty box. Ever. It’s absolutely stunning and gave me all the make up feels when I opened it. Lots of shimmery goodness for a sparkly eyelid, it’s full size and worth £46 alone so effectively it makes everything else in the box free. Winner.
There’s also a full size MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick in this box which is a formula I’ve wanted to try for ages, so it was a really lovely surprise. You can’t beat MAC lipsticks and this one is a great nude tone for everyday. Worth £17.50 too.
I’m a huge fan of the Living Proof hair products and inside this box is a large travel size (98ml) of their Body Builder spray which is effectively a hairspray that also adds volume to the hair. It’s lightweight and doesn’t pull the hair down, so it’s always really nice to use and it’s a great size as well. Perfect for taking on holiday in your luggage.
You’ll also find a massive Bondi Sands fake tan in their ‘dark’ version which is brilliant for those of us who have fair skin and nee some help with the summer glow. This foam version has excellent reviews and several friends have previously recommended it to me so I’m excited to give it a try. 110ml size too which says it’s not full size, but it looks full size to me!
There’s also the Bare Minerals BarePro Glow Highlighter Drops which look like golden water in the bottle. Full sized and coloured to work with any skin tone, it’s the sort of product you can apply direct to the skin for a high intensity glow or add to foundation/moisturiser for something more subtle. This would be great for when you go on holiday.
So along with other brands like Kiehl’s, OPI, Clinique, Aveda, Elemis, Smashbox and more, this box really delivers everything you need for a summer beauty overhaul for a nifty price. You’ll be wishing you’d snapped this up if you leave to long, and seeing as it’s limited edition, it won’t be hanging around for long so get yours while stocks last from Latest In Beauty.
