Perhaps the most hyped concealer of the decade, Tarte’s Shape Tape had been popping up everywhere in the past year. I tried to get it when it first came out but it was seemingly always sold out for the first few months. I held off and I held off. Then, on Boxing Day last year, an email from Tarte popped up in my inbox offering free international delivery and a 20% off sale. It was time, I couldn’t resist.
So is it worth all of the hype? Is it really as amazing as seemingly everybody claimed?
I will admit it- I have never once tried a beauty subscription box. I have looked into many and completed plenty of research but the element of surprise and potentially getting a load of products I had little to no interest in each month put me off.
Also, some of the subscription boxes can be seriously spendy so I simply didn’t bother. Then the wonderful gals at Latest In Beauty gave me the chance to build my own one off box to try it out, it would have been rude of me to turn it down!
So what is Latest In Beauty and how does it work?
Want to smell like Cotton Candy or perhaps a Tasty Doughnut? Well thanks to German YouTuber Bibi from Bibi’s Beauty Place, and her hit new bodycare brand, you can!
German brand, Bilou is well known for its unique scents and formulations and has recently arrived in the UK, exclusive to Superdrug. The range houses a total of nine different products in five delicious scents such as Cotton Candy, Fizzy Berry, Tasty Doughnut, Coco Cocktail or Pink Melon.
I was recently sent some products from the range to try out for myself and I’m ready to share my thoughts!
I am fussy with fragrances. I tend to stick with my trusty Jo Malone scents or my signature Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. But let’s face it, those scent choices are far from cheap and wearing them every single day can get expensive and quickly. So for that reason, I had been on the lookout for some new daily fragrances that weren’t going to run the risk of bankrupting me. So when I was kindly offered the chance to try out this new fragrance, I thought the timing was perfect!
Honestly, celebrity fragrances haven’t appealed to me in the past. Perhaps I’m a perfume snob? But when I have been browsing in Superdrug and Boots recently, I have been making a point of lifting various fragrances and giving them a whiff, trying not to judge them on the celebrity status.
