Meeting Charlotte Tilbury


Meeting Charlotte Tilbury

Over the years Ellis Tuesday has given me so many incredible opportunities. I've worked with some of my favourite brands, discovered new ones, landed several internships and even been in a couple of magazines. But nothing has quite matched the excitement and sheer delight that I experienced this Thursday when I MET CHARLOTTE TILBURY!

It's been a couple of days now since it actually happened and I still don't think it's quite sunk in.

Since the Charlotte Tilbury counter opened in House Of Fraser Glasgow back in September, I've frequented it quite a few times. Is it bad that some of the girls on the counter already know me by name I'm in that much? Hehe. So when I was given the incredible opportunity to attend a makeup masterclass in the stunning House Of Fraser Glasgow boardroom, I couldn't have replied to the email any quicker than I did. And this was before I even knew that Charlotte herself would be in attendance.

Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Masterclass

Charlotte was absolutely amazing; everything I'd hoped she would be and more. They say don't meet your idols but I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to. Not only that but I got to have a chat to her one on one and have my photograph taken with her. It was all a bit surreal, hence my rather starstruck expression.

Before that Charlotte took us through one of her latest makeup looks, on the stunningly beautiful model, as we followed along step by step to recreate the Dreamy Look.

To do this we used the incredible Dreamy Look in a Clutch set, which comprises of five absolutely stunning products, two of which are full sized, as well as a little bonus, which I will go on to describe below. You get the Legendary Muse palette which is made up of four of the most dazzling yet really wearable shades, as well as a full sized Hot Lips lipstick in Secret Salma. Then there are three minis; a mini Legendary Lashes, a mini Legendary Eye Liner in Bedroom Black and a mini Legendary Lip Liner in Bitten Kiss.

Charlotte Tilbury The Dreamy Look

You can hopefully get a feel for the look from this photograph but it certainly doesn't do it the justice it deserves. Let me know if you'd like to see me recreate it here in a blog post or over on my YouTube channel. The eyeshadow palette alone is something you honestly just need in your makeup bag, especially in time for the impending party season.

I was a little worried when I saw Secret Salma in the bullet that it might be too dark for me and my complexion but as soon as it was applied I was in love.

You also might be able to tell, that I've had a bit of a drastic haircut, having it go from this length to around collarbone length. I'm planning to do an Autumn/Winter outfit post soon so you should get to see it a bit better in that.

It actually made my whole week for Charlotte to say how much she loved my hair and how good the shade of lipstick looked on me. As a fellow redhead, discovering Charlotte and her range honestly changed the way I look at makeup and how I can do my own without looking overly made up.

Charlotte Tilbury Dreamy Look in a Clutch

As mentioned above, each Dreamy Look in a Clutch comes with a little added bonus; a USB stick which comes preloaded with the look tutorial video on it. And isn't it the coolest USB stick EVER?!

This means whoever you gift the kit to, they can see exactly how each product is applied, taking all of the guesswork out of it. This really does make it the perfect gift for a whole host of women. And look at that fabulous leopard print designed box too! I mean, it's like they asked me what my dream packaging would look like and then put it into production.

Charlotte Tilbury Christmas 2016

If you've been on my blog in the past couple of weeks, you will have seen (just over in my sidebar to the right) that the magical mini brush set has been at the top of my wishlist ever since I first saw it. All of Charlotte's incredible Christmas gifts were on display and after seeing the brushes in person I now know that I simply need to have them in my life! It's also a great way to be able to afford some of Charlotte's brushes without having to spend too much to do so and they're the perfect travel friendly size as well. Basically, I can't get enough of them.

And how dreamy is the World of Legendary Parties Advent calendar?

Charlotte Tilbury Advent Calendar 2016

Here it is in a bit more detail. You get some of Charlotte's most iconic products, such as Magic Cream, Wonderglow, Goddess Skin Clay Mask and Supermodel Body, as well as the exclusive Jessica Red Pocket Pout and much more.

You can also see the exterior of the little clutch bag that comes with the magical mini brush set. Can you tell that I can't get it out of my head?

Charlotte Tilbury Glasgow

I'd just like to thank the team at House Of Fraser Glasgow for having me and of course, Charlotte herself for being there and taking the time to interact with us. It was such an amazing day and something I certainly won't forget in a hurry.

Are you a Charlotte Tilbury fan? If so, which product would you recommend that I try next? Have any of her Christmas gifts and sets caught your eye? And would you like to see me recreate the Dreamy Look on here or on my YouTube channel?

You can shop some of my favourites from the Charlotte Tilbury gifting range, as well as all of the components of the Dreamy Look below (you might have to disable your ad blocker to view this).

The Autumn Degustabox (With Exclusive Discount Code)


Degustabox Discount Code

I'm back with not one but two Degustabox reviews. I hope you don't mind but as I was away at the end of September/the start of October, I've amalgamated the two reviews into one. However, the main focus will be on the most recent box; October's Autumn Degustabox.

As with every Degustabox I review, I have a brilliant, new and exclusive, discount code which takes a massive £7 off the £12.99 price, making it better than half price. All you have to do is enter the code Z4CBJ when you register.

So let's see exactly what the October Degustabox comprises of;

Degustabox UK Discount Code

As someone with a bit of a sweet tooth, I was over the moon to find some sweet and chocolatey treats in the Autumn box. I'm a big fan of Brioche Pasqueir's products, having first discovered them as a result of receiving the Degustabox and these choco bars are amazing! Basically you get a mini bar of milk chocolate inside a brioche roll. Yup, it's just as tasty as it sounds! If that wasn't enough chocolatey goodness, there's a jar of JimJams chocolate spread. With 83% less sugar this is a great guilt free spread. It's also gluten free and diabetic friendly, both of which are big plus points. And then there's the bar of Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme. This stuff is SO good! I'm not a huge fan of American chocolate but I did try this for the first time a few years back in the US and it was that good that I brought about 10 bars of the stuff home. It's great to find out that you can now get it in the UK for a pretty reasonable price, with this king size bar being £1.

I've mentioned it a few times on the blog now but I've been trying to up my water intake this year and Robinsons Squash'd makes it really easy and tasty to do just that. And talk about tasty, these Beloved date fruit hearts are really nice. My personal favourite has to be the zesty orange and each bar is one of your five a day, making it a great on-the-go snack.

Degustabox Food Box Review

Now I'm not a Minions fan (I just don't get their appeal) but even I had to admit that these pasta shapes were pretty cute. These would be perfect for getting little ones excited about their dinner and paired with the Heinz Kid's pasta sauce would make for a tasty meal for little ones or those of us young at heart.

The Maggi Fusion noodles are ideal for lunchtime or to accompany a meal in the evening and both flavours are delish. As are the I AM SOUPER soups. These are high in protein, meaning they should keep you feeling fuller for longer. And anything Levi Roots related always goes down well in our household. This Smokey BBQ Coat 'n cook transforms a simple meal of chicken or fish into something pretty spectacular. I'm also rather tempted to try out the ginger beer flavour the next time I'm at the shops.

Degustabox UK Review

And here's the September Degustabox, well not exactly all of it...

As I mentioned briefly, as I was away on holiday when the September Degustabox arrived, it was sitting waiting on me when I got home. And after returning home to bare cupboards, I may have indulged in the Metcalfe's Skinny dark chocolate popcorn thins and the BBQ Say Yes To No Bread chips that were both originally included in this box. Both were amazing. The rest of the box was packed full of products, as per usual. The Teisseire drink is fantastic and again, is helping me to drink more water during the day. All of the Hartley's jellies have now disappeared as has the Mrs Crimbles gluten free pasta, which was so yummy for something gluten free. The rest of the products have went down well with the rest of my family too and it definitely helped to return home from what felt like days and days of travelling to a big box of food and drink waiting for me.

What do you think of these two Degustaboxes? Have you tried any of the products featured in them before? If so, what do you think of them? And how amazing is the new discount code?

10 Beauty Buys You Need To Make This Month


New Beauty Buys 2016 Autumn/Winter Trends

As I mentioned in my A New Look & A Little Catch-up blog post, the plan is to switch up content a little bit, compared to how I did it in the past. So for example, instead of reviewing a whole range of products, what I'll do is handpick my favourite or favourites and include them with some of my other favourites or products that are similar. Hopefully this will become more apparent as time goes on but I'd thought I'd start by bringing you the 10 beauty buys you need to make this month;

Origins Breast Cancer Awareness Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask; For me, this is the most important beauty buy in today's post and not just because it's an incredible product. October marks breast cancer awareness month and many of your favourite brands and products are supporting the incredible cause by going pink. This limited edition release of the iconic 'wonder' mask is as good as, if not better, than what people make out. And by buying this edition, not only are you treating yourself to a holy grail beauty product but you're also doing some real good.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Nourishing Lip Balm*; After a couple of flights and making my return to the cold Scottish weather this month, my lips have definitely not fared too well. After finally trying this much hyped product, I now completely understand just why everyone raves about the Eight Hour range. This feels lovely on the lips and doesn't dry in too quickly either.

Neal's Yard Remedies Deliciously Ella Rose, Lime & Cucumber Moisturiser*; If you've not checked out Deliciously Ella's collaboration with Neal's Yard Remedies yet then you're missing out! What a collaboration eh? And how dreamy is the packaging? If you love rose scented products then this one and the accompanying facial wash will be right up your street.

Aveda Damage Remedy Split End Repair; After a couple of weeks spent by/in the pool and in the hot Floridian heat and sunshine, my hair was in dire need of some TLC on my return. My hair seems to grow like wildfire in such conditions so my ends in particular definitely didn't look their best. This brand new release from Aveda is designed specifically to deal with split ends and if you're trying to get the most out of your hair and current cut before booking a hairdresser's appointment, give this a try. I have a feeling you won't regret it.

KIKO Graphic Gaze Double Eye Marker; KIKO have launched their latest limited edition collection and it's a good'un. This double ended eyeliner from the Neo Noir range is unreal. Each end has a little ball at the end of the tip. I wasn't sure if these would make it easier or harder to do my eyeliner but the ball actually gives you a whole lot more control, in my experience anyway. It's also the perfect jet black shade too. I think I might have finally found my dream liner!

Best new beauty products 2016

Cargo Cosmetics Vintage Escape Eye Palette*; Cargo Cosmetics are a brand that I've wanted to try for quite some time so when Direct Cosmetics got in touch and sent me this particular palette (which is just £9.99 on their site btw), I was so happy. The shades are perfect for Autumn and the shadows themselves are buttery, blendable and simply beautiful.

Primark PS Pro Small Blending Brush; When I first saw the Primark PS Pro range of brushes online I knew that I would just have to give them a try but for months now they've always been out of stock in my local Primark stores. Last week my luck changed when I spotted a small stand with a couple of these hanging on them. First of all, this brilliant brush was just £2.50 and the bristles are SO soft. You won't believe how soft they are. I'd definitely recommend popping one of these into your basket the next time you're in Primark.

The Body Shop Matte Liquid Lipstick in Tokyo Lotus; These days I'm basically like a magnet to anything liquid lipstick related so when I saw that The Body Shop had released a brand new range of liquid lipsticks and matte ones at that, I just had to try one out. I picked up the shade Tokyo Lotus, which is a great pink-y purple and I've already got my eye on the Windsor Rose and Crete Carnation shades. The formula is brilliant and it isn't drying in the slightest either.

PUR Hydrafluid Water Serum Foundation*; When I first squeezed some of this out of the tube I did get a little bit worried as it really is a watery foundation but once you get past that (it does say water in the name I guess), this is such a unique take on coverage, one that I certainly hadn't tried before. As someone with dehydrated skin this felt really nice and hydrating, almost sinking into the skin instead of sitting on it. This means that it looks incredibly natural. I love that it also delivers some skincare benefits as well. Trust me, you need to get yourself down to M&S to try this one out for yourself.

Benefit 3D Browtones; Back in June, I was invited along to House Of Fraser Glasgow to check out the brand new Benefit brow range and whilst I was there this product was one that instantly caught my eye. It's one of those products that you might not initially think you need (a brow highlighter, really?) but once you've actually applied it you won't be able to stop thinking about it. Or at least that's how it went for me. This looks like your brows but better, if that makes sense and also has the added bonus of being waterproof. If you're looking for a fuss-free brow product then this is it.

What do you think of my picks? Have you tried any of them? If so, what are your thoughts on them? And have you seen or picked up any exciting beauty buys this month that are too good not to share?

Blogging, Taxes & Registering As Self Employed


Making money from blogging plus what to do when you start making it

Even though the large majority of us aren't earning Zoella-style money from blogging, keeping a track of your earnings, however little, is incredibly important. When I first registered as self employed I wasn't entirely sure what I was doing, especially as blogging is such a new industry, so I thought that I would put together this blog post for others who might find themselves in a similar boat.

Blogger earnings

Basically, to keep myself right, I think of it as this; any money that I make from my blog, be it sponsored posts, advertising or affiliate networks is earnings. Simply put; if you blogging has resulted in you making money, this should be declared as earnings.

Registering as self employed

As soon as you start earning, even if it's just pennies to begin with, look into registering as self employed. The sooner you do it the better, as you can then start taking a note of how much you're making each month.

Paying taxes

The Personal Tax Allowance for each individual is £11,000. This means that you can earn up to £11,000, in a tax year, without having to pay tax on it. Please remember to take into consideration your other earnings, be it from part time or full time employment, when it comes to this number. When it comes to National Insurance contributions, this again depends on how much you earn. If you earn less than £5965 a year, you may be eligible for a Small Earnings Exception but other than that, you will have to pay National Insurance, either via direct debit or after HMRC send you a payment request/invoice.

Tax Returns

Before the end of each tax year aka. the 5th of April, you must declare your income by filling out a Self Assessment Tax Return. This can either be done online or by post. My best advice is to double check everything when you're filling it in. That way any mistakes should hopefully be found before sending it off. This page is particularly handy when it comes to all things tax returns.

Expenses

Now the whole notion of blogger expenses can be a little tricky. Expenses are typically the things that aid the running of your business so something like buying a new camera or laptop, in my mind, is an expense. If unsure, you're best contacting HMRC directly.

Have you registered as self employed if you're making money from your blog? What do you think of my tips? Would you like to see more blog posts like this, where I share some of my behind the scenes blogging tips? And would a post on how I keep track of my blogger earnings be helpful to you?

How To Feel Confident In Swimwear


How to feel confident at the pool beach

No matter your shape or size, we all have our body hang ups and the notion of getting into a swimming costume or bikini can stress out even the best of us. Over the past couple of years I've grown to love my body, something I never thought I'd be able to say. The wobbly bits, cellulite, stretch marks; they're all part of what makes me me. But even if you feel confident in clothes, swimwear can be a whole different story. So I thought I would share a couple of tips, ones I put in practice on my recent trip to the US, that should hopefully make the prospect of slipping into a piece of swimwear somewhat more bearable.

How to feel confident in a bikini

First of all, I must introduce you to Frank the flamingo from Prezzybox.

Is it obvious that I've been watching too many episodes of How To Get Away With Murder recently? 

How to feel confident in swimwear

Choose a style you feel comfortable in
Just because cut out swimwear is all the rage right now doesn't mean you should feel pressured to pack one for your next holiday. My advice; go to a store where you can actually physically try on a range of styles. That way once you know which one you like best. Then you can browse ASOS etc. to your heart's content.

Since one of my biggest body hang ups is the cellulite at the top of my thighs, I now always opt for a skirted swimsuit. Even though it can often be perceived as a little mumsy, I actively search for 1950's/vintage inspired ones as they just look so flattering. You don't need to shell out an arm and a leg for one of these either. I found this particular one at my local Sainsburys this Summer for less than £20!

Whatever your body hang up or issue, there’s an option out there for you.

Swimwear body confidence tips

Get supported
As someone with a rather ample bust, I know just how important proper support can be. Looking for a swimsuit with shelf support or an underwired top can instantly transform the way you look and feel.

To tan or not to tan

As you can quite clearly see, rocking the pale look is something I do on a daily basis. Can you believe that this is actually me with a bit of a 'glow'?

If treating yourself to a spray tan or grabbing a bottle of the fake stuff in preparation for flashing the flesh in your swimwear, makes you feel a little less like Casper the Friendly Ghost/better about yourself, then just go for it! Here are some of my favourites for paler skin tones as well as great ones in general.

Flamingo Pool Float

Enjoy yourself

It's not every day that you get the chance to spend a couple of hours or days by the pool, especially if you live somewhere like the UK, so don't waste the opportunity. Forget about how you look and enjoy yourself! Trust me, everyone else will have that little niggling bit of self doubt about how they look too so put it to the back of your mind and make a splash or at least grab yourself a good book, some sun protection and a spot to sit, relax and ...

Last but not least, whenever the topic of body confidence arises, there's only one thing that springs to mind. In the inimitable words of Ru Paul herself;

‘If you can’t love yourself how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?’
Can I get an amen?

What tips do you have for feeling confident in swimwear? Do you have any holiday plans in the pipeline? And what do you think of Frank the flamingo?

Universal Studios



As I mentioned in my A New Look & A Little Catch-Up blog post, I'm going to be sharing what I got up during my holiday to Orlando, Florida and I thought that I would start with one of my favourite theme parks; Universal Studios.

So let's take a trip to Universal Studios Orlando;

My Holiday Beauty Essentials


Holiday Beauty Essentials

Well the holiday blues have well and truly set in for me as this time last week I was in sunny Orlando, Florida, albeit preparing for Hurricane Matthew, so it technically wasn't as sunny as it was when I took these photographs.

But let's not dwell on that. Here are the beauty products that I used over the three weeks, some of which I brought with me, the rest I bought whilst I was there;

Dove Original Clean; This is my deodorant of choice, so much so that I was always bulk buy it and bring as many as I possibly can home with me. Not only is it about double the size of the Dove stick deodorants that we get here but it's also half the price, which just blows my mind every single time I take a stroll down the deodorant aisle. Like seriously, why are so many beauty products ridiculously cheaper in the States compared to the UK?

Suave Essentials Mango Mandarin Body Wash; On our first full day in Orlando we headed to our nearest Wal-Mart to pick up some essentials and as this was just $1.88 or something crazy like that, it came home with me. It really did smell beautiful and lathered up well, especially when you consider the price of it. I was a little tempted to bring a few of these back with me in my suitcase but the fear of unzipping my case back in Glasgow to find that this had exploded was just too much to.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] Unifiant*; If you saw my in-depth review of this particular product a couple of weeks ago you will know exactly why this came with me. After the nine hour flight my skin certainly looked worse for wear and a whole constellation of spots of blemishes popped up from nowhere. This immediately got to work at dealing with them, as well as covering them and as I was going sans makeup over the three weeks, this instantly made me feel a lot better about my skin.

Mini Wet Brush; I've declared my undying love for the Wet Brush before on here so of course I had to take a travel friendly version of my favourite hairbrush with me on holiday. Even when my hair was a knotted mess after day after day of being in the pool, this still glided through to untangle it without as much as one wince.

Garnier Ambre Solaire UV Sport Dry Mist SPF 50; As an incredibly pale, freckly redhead sun protection is very high on my list of priorities, especially in the Floridian sunshine and I am so glad that I picked up this specific bottle before I left. Not only did it protect me from the blazing sun but it also continued to work in the pool and any torrential rain showers I got caught in. The fact that it was a mist also made it incredibly easy to apply, even to those hard to reach areas.

Beauty Essentials Travel Holiday Vacation

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter Body Lotion; The Righteous Butter is one of my favourite body lotions, of all-time might I add and this little travel size of it makes it so easy to use and apply. I was planning on taking a mini tub of it with but I am so glad that I opted for the tube instead. To hear me rave about it, as I have done quite a few times in the past, be sure to check out my Product Directory for all previous mentions of it.

Victoria's Secret Scandalous EDP Rollerball; I actually brought two of these rollerballs back with me from my last trip to Orlando two years ago and anytime I smell this perfume it instantly transports me right back to my happy place. If you haven't smelt this scent from Victoria's Secret, I would definitely recommend tracking it down for a sniff the next time you're in-store.

Alberto VO5 Moisture Milks Strawberries & Cream Moisturizing Shampoo; Not one to break with tradition, I picked up the one shampoo that I've always used whilst staying in the US. It's also just $0.98! Like how crazy is that? It also smells just like strawberries and cream, which is a seriously dreamy thing, if I don't say so myself.

Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Texturising Sea Spray*; Since I was letting my hair air dry (in a matter of minutes, might I add), whilst I was there, I knew that I would need something to give my naturally curly/wavy hair a bit of style. This did exactly that. It also didn't make my hair feel crunchy or gritty like other sea salt sprays have done in the past.

Solait Moisturising After Sun Spray; There was only one day, when popping down to our local shopping area, that I forgot to apply sun protection to my shoulders. Between walking from Target to Best Buy I caught the sun. Thankfully it was only a little bit and this soothed any redness straight away.

What are your holiday beauty essentials? Have you tried any of the products in today's post? If so, what do you think of them? And who else would like to join me on a plane back to somewhere hot and sunny?

A New Look & A Little Catch-up



Say hello to the new and hopefully improved, Ellis Tuesday or Ellis Tuesday 4.0 as I like to think.

Right before I went on holiday (I just got back on Sunday) I had a million and one ideas as to where I'd like to take Ellis Tuesday next, so over the next couple of weeks and months you should start to see a shift towards some new and exciting content. That definitely doesn't mean that there won't be beauty posts aplenty as well but even these are going to have a little makeover too.

I've also got lots to share from my aforementioned holiday. I'm talking in-depth guides and reviews of the theme parks I visited and many a haul post/video, as I did go a little crazy in some of my favourite shops. Expect a whole lot of Kate Spade New York, Bath & Body Works, Sephora shopping and much, much more.

I'd love to hear what you'd like to see more of on Ellis Tuesday, as well as your thoughts on my new template.

What would you like to see first in terms of guides/posts? Universal Studios, Islands Of Adventure, Disney Springs, Busch Gardens or LEGOLAND Florida? And would you rather see the haul posts in video form on my YouTube channel or on the blog instead?

The Pretty In Pink Edit


Pink/Blush Fashion on the UK High Street for Autumn/Winter 2016
As someone who wears a lot of monochrome, injecting a spot of colour isn't always high on my agenda but I have been trying my best to take a step outwith  my comfort zone. Recently I've found myself increasingly drawn towards blush colours and different tones and shades of pink. As you might remember if you saw this wishlist a couple of weeks agao. This is despite the fact that up until very recently I only had one pink piece in my wardrobe. It might not scream Autumn/Winter like other shades, patterns and colours but something about it has me well and truly hooked.

What inspired this whole Weekly Wishlist was the absolutely gorgeous and very glamorous Miss Selfridge coat. I think I might have found my dream Winter coat with this. I also really adore the cropped trench coat style jacket from River Island too. I have a feeling that at least, if not both, of these will be making their way to me soon. Do I press add to basket?

I also love a good velvet piece, as I will be showcasing in a later Weekly Wishlist and I love how unlike any other piece of velvet I own, the Miss Selfridge top is. I might just need to treat myself to the adorable little pair of ballet pumps from Topshop too.

What do you think of my pink picks? Are you a fan of wearing pink? Which colour or shade is currently your favourite when it comes to High Street fashion?

The QVC Tili Beauty Box


Tili Box 2

Over the years I've reviewed a variety of different beauty boxes on Ellis Tuesday (Look Fantastic, Birchbox and Look Incredible) and I have to say, this one might be my very favourite of them all. 

Tili stands for Try It Love It and is QVC's take on the beauty box. As you will know, if you spend as much time as I do watching QVC, they stock some of the very best beauty brands, many of which are exclusive to QVC here in the UK such as Tarte. And Tarte feature in this second installment of the Tili beauty box*.

Tili Box

In addition to the Tarte Tarteist lash paint mascara there are six other brilliant beauty products in this edition of the Tili box. I was over the moon to see Laura Geller's highly celebrated Spackle, as well as Percy and Reed's volumising hair mousse and Philosophy's Amazing Grace shampoo, bath & shower gel. OPI is always a hit for me, as is Pixi and Caudalie so I'm really excited to try these out too. And I actually hadn't heard of Niod before so I'm looking forward to putting this to the test as well. I'll be sure to share my thoughts in a later post on all of these.

Whilst some other beauty boxes traditionally have a value of around £50 this particular box has a value of £100, all for just £20. I also love the fact that this isn't a subscription box. It's just a one off payment of £20. I'm trying to get out of the habit of subscribing to beauty boxes so the Tili box could be the perfect way for me to get my beauty box fix without paying out every month.

Tili 2 launches today exclusively on QVC. If you like the look and sound of this beauty box, I would make sure to press buy as soon as you can as the first box sold out extremely quickly when it first launched.

Does this look like the best beauty box you've ever seen? Which product or products would you be the most excited to receive? Have you tried any of them before? If so, what were your thoughts? And are you a fan of beauty boxes?
