Love Me Beauty- May 2017 Review

About the box
Love Me Beauty is a bit different to the other boxes- every month you get 60 credits, and get to choose from a menu of items. Each item is assigned a different amount of credits by Love Me Beauty, so you could choose lots of small credit items and get a really full box, or a couple of high value high credit items and get an extra special but more empty box. It's fun to see every month what they've got- they've had some amazing brands in the past like Charlotte Tilbury.

£10 a month + £3.95 postage and packing

What I got

I had high hopes after last month, but unfortunately this month the edit of items to choose from really didn't wow me. There was a mega repeat from millions of other boxes gone before (Nuxe Dry Oil- I think it must have been in pretty much every beauty box out there at least once!), and I just wasn't feeling it. In the end I went for three of the same brand/type of item so I could have a little set.

For 20 credits each, totalling the months 60 credits allowance, I chose Manna Kadar Beauty Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain (sample, 1.5g each) in the shades Rosette, Sienna, and Shae. I thought these were matte liquid lipsticks when I first ordered them so was a bit disappointed they are actually glosses but that's my fault for not reading the descriptions properly! I do really love the nude bases of these colours and think they will be great simple summer colours.

From top: 'Shae', 'Rosette', 'Sienna'.

Final thoughts
The makeup bag is cute but I really don't need any more of those, and as for the product selection this month, I felt it wasn't very exciting. Three small 1.5g lip samples is not very good value for money so as much as I am happy to add these to my collection I think this subscription will be going in the cancel column for me for now. I will keep an eye on their monthly edits in the hope that something cool is added over the summer.

  1. It looks very cute tho! I remember ordering one after my work colleague recommended it to me but at the end I finished my adventure with them after first box. I am yet to find a box I want to stay with.
