The Latest In Beauty Cosmopolitan Party Starter Edit

Latest In Beauty Cosmopolitan Party Starter Edit

As you will probably already know if you've seen any of my recent beauty box reviews, I now far prefer what's available from stand alone/subscription free boxes as apposed to those which arrive on your doorstep every month with surprises hidden inside. Maybe it's because I've found myself left feeling disappointed with what I find inside them or maybe it's my inner control freak making itself known. Either way, one off beauty boxes, ones which you can research first to see what's inside, are definitely my preference and I've found myself over the moon with most to all of the products enclosed inside. And when you see one, such as the one that I will be reviewing today, where you're genuinely excited about everything inside it, that's when you know that you're on to a winner.

This box, the Latest In Beauty Cosmopolitan Party Starter Edit* is one of those boxes. For just £25, a one of payment instead of a monthly subscription, you'll find all the products that you need for party season and more, all of which have been hand picked by Cosmopolitan's beauty director Ingeborg van Lotringen. It's also worth £121! Now how incredible is that?!

So let's see what the Cosmopolitan Party Starter Edit contains;

Firstly we have some real standout products, ones that you don't regularly see in typical beauty boxes, with those being the Gilette Venus Snap Razor and the Yes To Cotton Comforting Facial Wipes. Both are products that I've wanted to try for a while and I really appreciate the fact that they've been included in this particular box. They're also perfect for traveling or for keeping in your handbag, like most beauty box inclusions but these are products I know that I'll actually use, unlike random hair bands or foundation five shades too dark, both of which I've found in other subscription boxes.

The St. Tropez Instant Tan Finishing Gloss, Beverly Hills Formula Perfect White Toothpaste and TIGI Bed Head Hairspray are all the perfect size to pop in your handbag either if you have a party or event right after work or if you need a little refresh on a night out. And when you get home, the Soaper Duper Vanilla Shea Body Wash is a great new discovery, especially as my current body wash had just run out. The Glamglow mask is a such a great brand to receive in a beauty box, particularly when the larger sizes can be pretty pricey. This is a great way to try one of their products out without having to part with that much money at all and it also leaves you looking like the Tin Man with a silvery metallic face after applying, which is such a fun touch. Then we have the Erborian Pink Perfect Creme, which is a nice primer to have to hand, especially when on the move due to it's dinky size and it also leads us on nicely to what else this box has to offer.

I am obsessed with the shade of this Nails Inc nail polish! It's the perfect rose gold/coppery shade and applies like a dream. I'm also a big fan of Sleek and the fact that two of their products made it into this box just feels so right. The shades of both the i-Divine palette and Matte Me lip cream are perfect for the party season and are great portable sizes too. As are the Glitterlution glitter pots. I mean, nothing says Christmas and party season quite like glitter, in my opinion. You might also be able to tell that one of mine chose to share it's glitter with the rest of the box, which certainly seemed apt when it came to the theme. Hehe. And the Eylure Volume No.100 lashes are tried and tested favourites of mine.

The Look Good Feel Better Sculpting Sponge is great for getting precise with your makeup application. I particularly like using it for concealer in the under eye area and whilst I'm there, the it Cosmetics Brow Powder Pencil is another great find. It's also made me want to try more from it Cosmetics even more.

There's also a Beauty Pie 24 Hour Pass card, which I couldn't photograph as I got a little too excited and tore open the little card which then revealed my code, which I couldn't think of a way to cleverly conceal for these photos. It is, however, such an interesting concept for a beauty box as it allows you to buy makeup at trade price, something again, that I've been keen to try out. And you can choose exactly which shades you'd like to receive etc. aka. another big bonus.

Overall, I am so happy with this box! It really does include everything that you'd need to take you from desk to party this festive season.

What do you think of this beauty box? Have you tried any of the products that feature in it? If so, what do you think of them? And do you prefer stand alone or subscription beauty boxes?
