I’d somehow got myself muddled up with my Latest in Beauty subscription box. I must have been late picking my choices a couple of months running so I’ve ended up being able to pick two quite close together! This is my June box, I’ll be picking July’s any day now.



As always, I got to pick 3 items from an extensive, ever changing list of beauty products. This costs £9 per month, including delivery, which I think is an absolute bargain!

This month I chose:

Ecotools Perfecting Blender Duo makeup sponges*. These retail at £9.99 so I’ve already got more than my monies worth! I love makeup sponges and use them daily to apply my foundation, concealer, primer and any other cream / liquid products. I usually stick to Real Techniques but I’ve been wondering about these from Ecotools for a while. I’ve got a few Ecotools brushes that I absolutely love so I expected the same quality for their sponges. Luckily, they don’t disappoint! First of all, they’re a great texture, firm when dry and soft when damp. They’re a bit bigger than what I’m used to. The flat edges seemed odd at first, I’m used to pointed sponges but once I got the hang of it, they were fine! I’m definitely pleased with these.


My next choice was a CYO blusher in shade Tell It Straight*. This normally costs £4. I’d not heard of CYO until last month when I picked another of their products in my box. I’ve been impressed by the quality of that product so I thought I’d try another! The colour is a pinky / peach and it has a gold shimmer to it. It’s a nice soft powder that blends well. As you can see from the swatch, it’s pigmented! I’d say this blusher is a great dupe for Nars Orgasm!



My final choice was a Sanctuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle body cream*. There were 3 different scents to choose from - I picked Green Lemon and Orange Blossom. This cream really appealed to me as you apply it to still damp skin, straight from the shower. This is designed to lock in more moisture. It’s the same principle as my favourite Elemis body oil. I’ve not tried the cream yet but I’m looking forward to seeing how it performs! This is a 50ml tube, you’d normally buy a 200ml tube for £8.



So another great box from Latest in Beauty and not long to wait until I pick my best one! Have you tried any of these brands?
