The Capital Beauty Box - first impressions review

Capital FM radio has teamed up with Latest in Beauty to bring this incredibly packed beauty box in time for fast approaching festival season.

The Capital Beauty Box by Latest in Beauty
The Capital Beauty Box

The Capital Beauty Box is still available in UK from at an amazing £14.99 and it’s packed with 9 beauty treats to see you through upcoming spring/summer months. From nails and lips through full on eye makeup and even flash tattoos and a scent you really can’t go wrong.

Let's start with the eyes. In the box you will find everything you need for a sultry smoky look this season. 

Neutral coloured Eyes Uncovered Nude Palette from Collection will do the trick. From light to deep bronze you can create any number of daytime to evening looks with this little box. 

Line your eyes with supplied Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Black Amethyst for an extra added smokiness or as a base under your shadows to really show their colour payoff. Don't forget to go in between lashes to give them extra volume boost before you apply the mascara.

Finish your look with Collection's Lengthening Mascara in Ultra Black for separation and length as promised by this  drugstore staple brand.

Now time for a quick mani... I'm kidding of course but you will be happy to find not one but two nail products in this cute, little box as well. 

Firsty prep your nails with 4-side nail buffer for healthy and shiny effect. Top it off with new collection by Rita Ora for Rimmel. I received Rimell 60 Seconds Super Shine Nail Polish in the shade '300 Glaston-Berry' which is a super pretty, goes with everything coral red shade. Wide applicator will help with fast and easy application for that perfect day in the sun or an evening out manicure :)

And let's not forget about the lips :) 

Renowned Pixi by Petra to the rescue :) In my box I found Lip Blush in Energy. And this coral shade is just perfect for summer. It will compliment your tan and your manicure :) As it's a lips stain it can be quite dying on some people, so remember to prep your lips first to ensure a smooth and long wearing effects :) 

I would highly recommend a DIY lip scrub (mix a little coconut oil with brown sugar). Then you can add a little of Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer to nourish and moisturise your lips. 
You can finish it all off with a spritz of a great new fragrance sample from Jimmy Choo and a one or two flash tattoos :)

What do you guys think? I personally think The Capital Beauty Box is a treat for the price as you can find practically everything you need to create a great look in one, tiny box. 

I only recently discovered Latest in Beauty but I already know this will not be the last box I get from them.
