Givenchy / The BBB Beauty Box Edit

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt might be a bit mean to post about this as you can no longer get your hands on it but I thought it was worth talking about in case 1. Jane gets the opportunity to edit another box for Givenchy or 2. you were totally unaware of the Latest In Beauty boxes and want to keep your eye out for a version you may want. Jane has actually done quite a few LIB boxes, they’re always products chosen by her and so you know they’ll be worth trying but this one was too good to resist. I have more samples than I know what to do with but still the idea of mini Givenchy skincare bits appealed to me for our upcoming holiday. I definitely didn’t need them but you know how it is.. I kinda did. The things that really swung it for me were the mini lipstick and mascara, both of which I’m saving.. I’m not sure for what but I’m a little afraid to use them. They’re just so pretty. Whatever my reasons the £17 some pounds I paid felt justified once I rifled through the contents.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALots of people showed interest in the little purse (it was that or a notebook I think – randomly chosen) but honestly.. I’ll probably never use it.. it’s cute though.  So what came in the box?

– Phenomen’Eyes Mascara

– Le Rouge Lipstick (shade 202 Rose Dressing)

– Teint Couture Fluid Foundation

– Hydra Sparkling Luminescence Moisturizing Cream

– Hydra Sparkling One Minute Glow Powder

– Hydra Sparkling Nude Look BB Cream

– Dahlia Divin

– Gentlemen Only Intense

 All tiny sizes aside from the mascara and lipstick (below – and serious, HOW CUTE?) but that’s what we’ve come to expect from these beauty boxes so I’m cool with that. This one definitely felt a little more luxury, the lipstick even came in it’s own box and tissue paper.. have I mentioned how cute the lipstick is?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPossibly the best thing in this box that you can’t SEE is the promise of a free makeover (up to 40 minutes long!) and free foundation sample at your local Givenchy counter. This isn’t something I’d usually do as I feel like they’ll push me to buy something but given that the invite came from a purchase I might actually go – if I do I will let you know how it goes! If you’re interested in a more in depth run down from the lady who put this collection of products together you can read Jane’s post here however as I said it is sadly no longer available. It was a couple of weeks ago that the box launched and it sold out lightening fast (as you would imagine) but you can sign up for updates on new boxes as they launch here. I’ve bought a few LIB boxes in the past and have always been impressed so it sucks to miss a really good one – of course I will ALWAYS tweet about this kind of thing so if you don’t already – you can follow me there too!

    have you tried anything from the l’oreal infallible range? Really interested in the foundation but wondered what your thoughts were (especially compared to the HG revlon colourstay)?

    I got this box but thats only because I saw your post on instagram and thought it was too good not to pass up on. Thanks for the heads up on this 🙂

    I had a look at this box when it was available but I decided not to bother because of the puny samples. You could probably ask for those things from a counter. The mascara and the lipstick you wouldn’t be able to get your hands on otherwise but those 2 items aren’t worth £17 to me. I’ve had some really excellent boxes from LIB with full size products in them so I do like the service, just not this box.
