Kat Von D Studded Lipstick ‘Mercy’

Love Me Beauty August 2017 (11)

I love mini lipsticks – they are perfect handbag companions. The shade Mercy is a deep burgundy colour which takes you through from day to night and it dries to a matte finish. It uses a special hybrid formula known as ‘colour cushion technology’ and it’s suppose to last for 10 hours straight! This is something which is a must! Long lasting lipsticks are the one! I think this colour will work on all skin tones. I’m very excited to try it.

Kat Von D Setting Powder

Love Me Beauty August 2017 (5)

Another item which I am very excited to try is this setting powder. It’s non drying, silky to the touch and totally diffuses pores. Yes, yes and YES. I already know this will be the first product to finish because I am a slave to baking and I need to keep my oily skin at bay 24/7/. I can’t wait to share my final thoughts with you all about this!

Kat Von D Sinner Eau de Parfum

Love Me Beauty August 2017 (24)

Soon to be released in the UK, Kat Von D’s much awaited fragrance ‘Sinner’ is perfect for fall. It combines warmess and spiciness and has key notes such as Patchouli, Wood and Cinnamon (yum) It’s sweet but edgy and it certainly hits the right notes with me.

Buxom Cosmetics Full-On Lip Polish ‘Dolly

Love Me Beauty August 2017 (25)

I’ve never tried anything from Buxom before. They’ve newly re-launched in the UK and I’m wondering why they ever left! I like the look of this colour as it will be the perfect topper for me. Another mini which can be stashed in my portable makeup bag. I just love products like this. This gloss actually plumps the lips to reveal a fuller look. Don’t be alarmed by the tingling sensation – it’s just the formula working its magic!

Buxom Cosmetics Lash Mascara

Love Me Beauty August 2017 (15)

A girl can never have enough mascara, and this is on of the bestsellers across the pond. I’ve heard good things about this and what draws me to it, is that it’s vitamin enriched. Described as the ‘Blackest Black’ mascara this is guranteed to be a total eye opener. I’m glad to be trying this out.

This month’s box has certainly exceeded my expectations and should have been named the American Edition! I’ve never tried anything from Buxom before and I’m so excited to test the formulas! If you’re thinking about subscribing to Love Me Beauty, August would be a good month because this box rocks!

    Omg, I love that Kat Von D lipstick! I got it as a sample a while back and was so sad when it was gone lol. I’m going to have to try and figure out what shade I had. ☺

    This is an amazing box, I have an eyeshadow palette from KVD and I love it, my daughter has a couple of the lipsticks and they are so good, I’ve not tried anything from Buxom as yet. This is so good and a brilliant way to try new brands and products xxxxx
