THE BRITISH SUMMER BEAUTY BOX by MAC

MAC British Summer Beauty Box

I was reading through my weekly newsletter emails when I came across this limited edition beauty box by MAC. Looking through the contents I just had to order it. It was only £28.00 for an amazing collection of products from top brands. It arrived yesterday and I was not disappointed. Enjoy the review…

M·A·C Mini M·A·C In Extreme Dimension Lash Mascara, 4g

MAC mascara

This is a really black pigmented mascara that applies well with a nice brush. I love all MAC mascaras. They last all day and do not clump up and make my eyelashes stick together. I have sensitive eyes but this mascara does not irritate them.

Estée Lauder DayWear Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant 24H-Moisture Creme SPF 15, 5ml

Estee Lauder Day wear cream

This is little pots of day cream, but you only need a small amount so it will last a few weeks. It absorbs into my skin and leaves it feeling hydrated and glowing. It also has a lovely smell. I like my moisturiser to have SPF too so this is a great product. Michael Kors Sparkling Blush Eau De Parfum Rollerball, 10ml This is a cute roller ball parfum. It smells divine and is super handy for your handbag.

Clinique 2-in-1 Cleansing Micellar Gel + Light Makeup Remover, 30ml

Clinique micellar gel

I was impressed with the size of this sample. It is a good tube full. I love micellar water and use it daily so I was intrigued with this micellar gel. You apply it using cotton pads and it gently removes makeup. It eaves your skin soft and cleansed. You do not need to wash it off, but I double cleanse so I use my Cerave hydrating cleanser afterwards.

Origins GINZING™ Refreshing Eye Cream To Brighten And Depuff, 5ml

Origins eye cream

This is a very small tube, but you only need to use a tiny amount. I gently dab it under my eyes using my finger. I love Origins and find their products are always gentle on my skin. This is no exception. It smells nice and is really creamy. I have only used it twice now but it leaves my under eye area hydrated.

Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colour, Babe, 2.25g

Bobbi Brown lipstick

This is a small lipstick sample but good for your handbag. It is a great red/nude shade and suits me perfectly. It is creamy and applies well.

Bumble and bumble Thickening Dryspun Texture Spray, 60ml

Bumble and Bumble thickening dry spray

I have been dying to try this texture spray as I have read great reviews about it. I sprayed it into my fine roots and it added texture and volume without leaving my hair hard or heavy. You have to make sure you spray from 10″ away though. I used it to close at first. It is super powerful and nearly blew my head off!

Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Palette, Travel Size, 6g

Smashbox Contour palette

I think this is the most impressive product as it is big. It has a lovely toned bronzer and a good contour and yellow toned highlighter. They apply nicely and blend well. This is a great contour kit and really handy for traveling.

Picnic-ready Canvas Clutch Bag

MAC summer makeup bag

I love this cute strawberry patterned canvas bag. It will make a lovely makeup bag. It is a good size too. As you can see from my reviews, I absolutely love this Summer Bag of goodies and I will definitely use all products. It is a great way to try expensive products to see if you like them before purchasing the full size version. You can buy it from MAC here. You also get a free sample. I got MAC Strobe cream which I love.
