It’s the beauty dilemma we all face when we have a new product in our paws; what if it’s not right? We spend more than we care to admit on beauty products each year and more often than not there’s that sad little pot of foundation that’s the wrong shade or that moisturiser that makes your face too shiny, sitting at the back of bathroom cabinet.

So you can imagine how happy we were to discover the ingenious beauty service; The Latest in Beauty who make this problem a thing of the past. Offering bespoke limited edition beauty boxes, you now have the choice of purchasing sample size products at sample size prices to make sure it’s just right. Either build your own box and choose from luxury products such as Benefit, Nails Inc, St Tropez, Estee Lauder and many more or buy their pre-made boxes for more of a random fun selection.

As a complete self-confessed beauty junkie I was over the moon to try out the exclusive Glamour Beauty Box complete with hand-picked products from Glamour magazine’s Beauty Director, Alex Steinherr, featuring

  • Burts Bees Lip Balm
  • Nail Varnish in Chat Me Up by Cheeky
  • Blue Eyeliner by Daniel Sandler
  • Traceless Hair Ring by Invisibobble
  • Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara by L’Oreal
  • Abundantly Bouncy Hair Volumising Mousse by Percy and Reed
  • Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom Foaming Shower Gel by Rituals

Although, there may be one or two items I wouldn’t normally buy, this is the beauty (excuse the pun) of the concept as it has forced me to try new products, and I totally rocked that blue eyeliner on Saturday night!
