Hello everyone, Today I have my 3rd Beauty Box by Selfridges box to review and share my thought with you. If you don't know, Selfridges sometimes comes up with their Limited Edition Beauty Boxes available to buy for a limited time and tend to sell out really quick. I missed out on the last one and when I saw the promotion for this Festival Beauty Box, I made my mind up and decided to buy it when it releases and I did :)

As you can tell by looking at the picture above, I received many pretty goodies (11 items all together) in the Box and no wonder why the box felt quite heavy :) The box had £110 worth of products in there and priced at £25 which is fair enough but the down side was the postage and packaging for £4.99 :( as I don't have any Selfridges store around me, I therefore had to get it delivered to my home for £4.99. So the total cost for the box was £29.99

Now, lets have a look at the contents individually:

Bare Mineral Pretty Amazing Moxie Lip Gloss
As you can see from the swatch (first one) the texture is very thick with a little gloss, it's may not be the best shade by BM for me but glad to have received this product in my box.

Topshop Lip Crayon in Powder Room
I have been wanting to try Topshop product and I have swatched some in the store and was planning to buy some of their products. So I was happy to receive a Topshop product and the colour/shade was very similar to the bare mineral one but matte ofcourse.

Illamasqua Liquid Metal Metallic Cream
This product was one of the reason why I decided to buy this Beauty Box. I own 3 or 4 eyeshadows and don't currently own any silver'y  one and this has definately made into my in use collection. This will also work nicely as a base.

This glitter stick is perfect for festival sparkle. This can be used / applied anywhere on body. It smells very nice but not sure if I'd use this product though.

This product on it's own cost £17 and love the sparkle consistency and the texture. Love the look of the bottle ,dries up quickly and therefore would definitely purchase more from this brand in the future. 

Colorsmash Hair Shadow in shade JE NE SAIS QUOI £10
This is the most exciting product of the box according to me as I have never tried a Hair shadow before. I might do a review on this product itself after applying it on my hair and share my experience with you :)

This envelop contains 3 temporary lip appliques that lasts up to 8 hours. Not too keen on trying this product only becuase I don't this is something I'd pick up to try.

Love Love Love this eyeliner! I own 3 other products by eyeko but thankfully didn't have the navy shade which I have received in this box. Quality, Application all great, right up on my street :)

This is a massive bottle received in this box. I normally save the cooling mist products to take on holiday as they are my best buddies during holiday period, Keeps my face and body nice and cool. So glad to have received this product too.

The last 2 products but certainly not the least are:

Cowshed Cow Slip hand gel 50ml

Mini Hand and Face wipes

Both of the products are going straight into my handbag :)

Overall, I am very pleased with this box and thought the money was worth it considering how many products I have discovered or re-discovered. I hope Selfridges bring on more boxes like this and I would definitely be purchasing more if the boxes are similar to this.

What do you think of the Festival Selfridges Beauty Box?

    Did you think the box was worth it? ive been uhmming and ahhing over it for ages, but i think the postage is a bit steep?
    So? Anyone else buy one and think its worth it?
    thanks girls!

    1. I do think it was good value to be honest considering it worth over £110 BUT i deff don't think paying hooping £4.99 is fair


  5. i always buy them the nail polish is £15 on its own ,very good value for money ,great blog post again.the postage is say one product worth or get a free postage code it works no problem.or if near a store do pick up and collect for free.

    1. Aww thank you so much Lorna
      I loveee the nail polish myself, never own anything from this Nail Polish Brand before.
      Unfortunately I don't have any Selfridges store near me and therefore have to pay the P&P everything I order from their site xx

  6. Looks really good id defo love to try a good few of those...the metallic eyeshadow looks awesome although i doubt it suit my colouring and quite fancy the nail polish..defo looks like a more than worth it beauty box, and with so many more products than the usual boxes it looks worth the money xx

  7. I'm jealous - none of these boxes is shipping abroad :( This is amazing. I've actually gone to google what a hair shadow is - do share pics when you try it!
