The Elle Beauty Box

The Elle Beauty Box

Beauty boxes just keep getting better and better don't they?
Newly launched and of course limited edition is the The Elle Beauty Box which is exclusive to Selfridges, it contains seven beauty products (some full size, some not) which have been handpicked by the Elle Beauty Team. The concept is that this box contains all you need and more be it make-up skin care or even a new nail lacquer to kick start the new beauty season.

So what does it contain:
  • Ciaté Cupcake Queen polish 13.5ml (full size)
  • Ellis Faas mascara 8.2ml (full size and not in the photos as it was damaged in transit)
  • Eve Lom Kiss Mix 7ml
  • Topshop lipstick in Charmed (full size)
  • Sachajuan leave-in conditioner 250ml (full size)
  • Jurlique Rosewater balancing mist 50ml (full size)
  • Perricone Neuropeptide Firming Moisturiser Mini 7.5ml
  • ELLE October issue
All in all a great box and I love that they have included the October issue of Elle - it is a lovely little touch which other magazine/beauty box collaborations have neglected in the past. Yes it is pricey at £30 but it the vast majority of the contents are full sized and from up-scale brands. Truthfully I do wish that the Ciaté Nail Paint and the Topshop Lipstick were less Summer inspired (bright pink and coral) but more Autumnal - if this box is to kick off the new beauty season surely the shades should reflect that?

  1. Great box and the contents are lovely - shame about the mascara. I'd definitely pay £30 for this, considering the magazine itself is £4 alone - plus I'm a sucker for limited edition!

    Much love,

  2. I actually already have that Ciate polish but i still ordered the box! Seemed expensive at first but there's a few really high end products there so worth it! x

  3. Wow!! The stuff you get in this box is amazing, I will definitely be checking it out :) ♥

  4. I agree, it's a lovely box but the shades are just too summery for me! I'm already sporting autumnal lip and nails!

  5. All of that stuff looks amazing! Lusting after the leave in conditioner!

  6. £30 is a bit much, I'd rather buy things that I like.

    Roses are bluee ♡

  7. I have tried Ciate nail varnish before and loved the finish but wasn't happy with how long they lasted without chipping! Im desperate to get my hands on some Topshop lipstick though!

  8. I'm a sucker for these beauty boxes it looks amazing but £30 is quite expensive ahh! I really want to try topshop products are they good?x

  9. That Topshop lipstick looks killer! I am loving this idea.


  10. Wow, that's really an incredible selection! So many luxe brands and interesting products. Love the shade of that Topshop lipstick! xo


  11. Now this looks like a beauty box I would actually like!! Next time I'm in London I may have to hit up Selfridges and look out for this!
