This beauty box is packed with everything you need to get yourself party ready from head to toe! I couldn’t quite believe how much could be fitted inside until I opened it! If Mary Poppins had a beauty box, this would be it! Everything inside has been so strategically placed. Cosmopolitan have really give it a lot of thought to ensure no area is left out when it comes to getting party ready!
I’m such a fan of beauty boxes, it’s exciting to receive a box of beauty products while not knowing what’s inside until it lands on your doorstep. Latest in Beauty have teamed up with Cosmopolitan to bring us the Party Starter box. They very kindly offered to send me a box to try.
This box costs £25 and has an RRP value of £121!
St Tropez Instant Tan Finishing Gloss *
The lack of sun at this time of year really isn’t a pale skins friend. Thank god for false tan! This finishing gloss adds a golden glow to the skin to bring our light Winter skin back to life. Whats more it is also transfer resistant so it won’t come off all over your new dress!
It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Pencil *
A makeup look wouldn’t be complete with out some brow maintenance. This mini pencil can easily fit into your bag to keep your brows in place all night. It is a rich creamy consistency which makes for an effortless application and I find it to be long wearing too.
Erborian Pink Perfect Creme *
The first all important step before applying any makeup, primer! This creme will create an even texture, blur away visible pores and leave your skin with a subtle glow ready to apply your makeup. The base is so important to the whole look. I love how this hides pores which I have issues with.
Yes To Cotton Comforting Facial Wipes *
Face wipes are so handy when getting party ready, I go through a few as I use them to clean up any fall out, sharpen up my eye shadow and fix mistakes. This might be the lazy way but I always use face wipes to remove my makeup too. These specific wipes are also environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable which I think is pretty cool.
Look Good Feel Better Sculpting Sponge *
In my personal opinions beauty sponges are the best way to apply base makeup, I love the flawless, even coverage they give. Cosmopolitan clearly agree as they have included one in this box!
Sleek Makeup Matte Me Lip Creme – Rioja Red *
Would it even be a festive party starter box without a red lipstick. I don’t think so. Red and Christmas go hand in hand so this makes a for a great product to include. Being a liquid lipstick it should have great staying power to endure the Christmas shenanigans!
Beverly Hills Formula Perfect White Black Toothpaste *
I thought this was a nice touch and definitely not something I would have expected to find included, but it makes perfect sense! Use this to help teeth on their way to becoming pearly whites. It uses activated charcoal to gently whiten the teeth so it doesn’t harm enamel. This will make for a great travel size toothpaste too!
Soaper Duper Vanilla Shea Body Wash *
The perfect body wash to begin the party prep, it smells so good too, a bit like vanilla ice cream! It’s so lovely and creamy it leaves my skin feeling soft and nourished after using it, just what you want before getting party ready.
Gillette Venus Snap With Embrace Portable Razor *
I really love this! I was very nearly going to buy one for myself, I think its so cute and compact and ideal for travel! Another great addition to prepare and de-fuzz out bodies in preparation for the party outfit!
Tigi Mini Hard Head Hard Hold Hairspray *
After spending your time getting your hair just right, mist it with this hairspray to lock it in place all night. It smells good too which is always a bonus because you know how vile hairspray can be.
Sleek Makeup I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette – All Night Long *
This is just the cutest! It is ideal to travel with as it takes up barely any space with it being so small. It offers a beautiful selection of matte and shimmer neutral shades to compliment any makeup look.
Nails Inc Nail Polish – Mayfair Market *
This is such a stunning rose golden shade, the perfect pairing for any party outfit. Nails Inc make some of my favourite nail polishes, so naturally I was delighted to see it included in this beauty box. It has been formulated with almond oil to nourish the nails while they look oh so pretty.
Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Mask Treatment *
It’s all well and good going all out on gorge makeup, but we mustn’t forget to prepare the skin. This fab brainchild from Glamglow brightens and tightens while reducing pores leaving a great canvas to work with.
Eylure Volume No.100 Lashes *
A crucial requirement for any glam party look! False lashes are so important. I don’t know about you but my look wouldn’t feel complete without a pair of falsies!
Glitterlution Glitter Pots *
Glitter and Christmas are like gin and tonic, they were made for each other. Such a perfect addition to the party starter box Cosmo have created. Not only that these little pots of glitter are also eco-friendly too which is amazing! Every little thing really does help so kudos on this pots of goodness.
