When I first got hooked on Beauty Boxes last year I pretty much tried at least one of every box that was available back then and that included Love Me Beauty but I had a few issues with their credit system and missing deliveries, so never continued my subscription but after seeing their revamped format and new themed monthly edits I couldn’t resist trying their Beauty Club again, especially as they announced that their September Edit was going to include three amazing products from Kat Von D’s Make-Up Range which has literally only just touched down in the UK! Their Beauty Club still works on a credit system, so you are always able to choose the products you want to receive every month only now they deliver your treats in a limited edition Love Me Beauty Make-Up Bag instead of a traditional box making your money stretch that little bit further each month and giving you an extra place to stash all those gorgeous new beauty treats too, so I am excited to see exactly how their subscription changed!
What’s in the Box?
Price Per Box – £10.00 plus £3.95 P&P
Total Value of Products – £19.06 (Plus a LMB Make-Up Bag)
Love Me Beauty’s inter-seasonal Sundown Edit has a fantastic collection of beauty must-haves to help sweeten the transition from Summer to Autumn with an exclusive preview of three products from Kat Von D’s Make-Up Range – which is new to the UK – sitting alongside some amazing skin care from Aromatherapy Associates, Omorovicza and Exuviance, they have certainly started September the right way and I am so excited to see if the make-up range the internet is talking about is really as good as the reviews say it is!
Your Beauty Treats
Kat Von D Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw – Full Size £16.00
Whether you’re getting ready for a night out, dinner with friends or just know you need your make up to stay in place all day, Everlasting Liquid Lipstick should be your weapon of choice as this lipstick is literally life-proof! Yes, that’s right – you can eat, drink, make up, break up and mouth-off knowing your lips are gonna stay flawless thanks to this creamy liquid formula that glides over lips like a gloss and sets to a true matte finish, and if 24-hour wear and high-pigment colour wasn’t enough, this power-house product is also packed with natural moisturisers, including Vitamin E and Sunflower Seed Wax for extra comfort and hydration throughout the day or night. I love liquid lipsticks and the fact that this bright red offering from Kat Von D’s Beauty line is not only long-lasting, but hydrating too is a real bonus for me! It’s matte finish can be perked up with a lip balm or gloss without the colour or staying power being effected which is fantastic, and the fact this liquid lipstick is also 100% vegan and cruelty free proves that you don’t have to compromise your ethics to buy high quality make-up that give absolutely amazing results!
Kat Von D Beauty Ink Liner in Trooper – Full Size £16.00
Create a killer line every time with Kat Von D’s ‘Ink’ liquid eyeliner and its acutely pointed felt tip design that’s loaded with a rich, saturated formula that makes achieving dramatic, high definition lines look effortless and as the formula gives you amazing 24 hour long wear and is also waterproof your eyeliner will stay put come rain or shine! This bold liner makes easy work of razor-sharp, super clean eyeliner looks, and its highly pigmented colour is also buildable for extra drama when you need it most! What girl doesn’t love a classic black eyeliner? It is something that should be a make-up bag essential for everyone and this gorgeous Ink Liner is a great way to get perfect wings, instant definition and long-lasting results in a single sweep! I love this liquid liner, its one of the easiest liners I have used recently and although I did need to put two sweeps to create the blackest of black lines, it stayed put well and is the perfect partner to both the Kat Von D Lipsticks I have also been enjoying this month!
Kat Von D Beauty Studded Kiss Lipstick in Magick – Full Size £16.00
Designed in the style of Kat’s signature studded cuff, this ‘Studded Kiss’ lipstick is available in 39 ground-breaking rebel-girl colours from black glitter and shimmering sea-foam green to iconic starlet reds and pretty doll pinks, and with each pigment-rich lipstick formulated with colour cushion technology to keep lips feeling velvety soft and supple thanks to a powerful antioxidant complex infused with vitamins A, C and E, whilst delivering bold, long-lasting colour, full coverage saturation and all in a tiny rock and roll studded case! Magick is a pretty pink-nude that suits my skin tone perfectly and the long wear formula locks on to my lips giving a long-lasting colour in an instant. This is a quick and easy way to glam up your lips and its signature scent and nourishing formula makes it a joy to use and the case… OMG – it’s just to bad-ass for words! I love this little lippy and will definitely be investing in a few full size shades very soon!
Exclusive ‘Sundown Edit’ Love Me Beauty Make-Up Bag
Instead of a regular beauty box, Love Me Beauty send you all your chosen beauty treats inside a pretty limited edition make-up bag and as its design is based around their monthly Edit’s theme it means you will always receive a fun new make-up bag each month on top of all your lovely beauty products too making the new and improved Love Me Beauty subscription even better value for money than before!
I have spent many an evening using after Kat Von D’s stunning make-up range and I was so excited to hear that is was finally launching here in the UK and that Love Me Beauty was giving their members an exclusive preview prior to the official launch in the middle of September, so I decided to bite the bullet and re-subscribe to the Love Me Beauty Club especially to sample some of Kat’s beauty treats and see exactly how their new monthly edits compared to when I tried their boxes last year! First of all I love the theme – the Sundown Edit is perfect for this time of year as the Summer fades gently into the Autumn and the make-up bags slogan is so apt too! I love that this isn’t a stereotypical beauty box – I always did – but the fact it is literally a bag not a box now just gives you an extra treat for your subscription fee and I love being able to choose which sample sized products I will be receiving each month as although it takes the fun, surprise element out of the beauty box concept – it also removes a lot of the disappointment I see when you get a really bad box filled with tiny samples and products you’ll never use – come on, we’ve all been there at least once right? So for this I think Love Me Beauty scores really highly, and the Kat Von D preview is also a real treat and I have loved getting to know more about her products without having to buy the full sized versions, which to be fair aren’t overly expensive, but as I was never a fan of Kat back in the days of Miami Ink, I may never have actually gone through with buying anything without this sort of incentive being there first! I know Debenhams (who I believe are the only store to be selling Kat Von D at present) did sell a ‘London Calling’ pre-launch set which consisted of three similar minis – this cost over double what my first months Love Me Beauty membership cost, so it was a no brainer for me on which to go for and I also got a handy little make-up back to boot which again, wasn’t something that made up the ‘London Calling’ set! Overall I have really enjoyed trying Kat’s Make-Up line and will definitely be investing in more of her products in the not so distant future as not only are they great quality and amazing value for money, they are also 100% vegan and cruelty free and come in the most stunning packaging I have ever seen!
My Beauty Favourite
My September Beauty Favourite is 100% the Studded Kiss Lipstick! I love the shade – Magick is perfect for my skin tone and is a great multi-tasking colour that looks great dressed up or down! It glides on beautifully and stays put for hours without drying out my lips which I love! Although it is only a mini it makes an amazing addition to my make-up bag and is one of the most comfortable and nicest smelling lip products I have used in a long while!
