Latest in Beauty The Sunday Times Style #BEAUTYBOSS Edit

Latest in Beauty is back with another incredible collection box and with two options to choose from, your hardest decision will be deciding which one you order. The Sunday Times Style Edit features a whole host of beauty favourites from Elemis, Bobbi Brown, Glossier, Kiehls and Clinique curated by two of the countries favourite beauty gurus. 

I was sent The #BeautyBOSS Edit (AD*) which includes fifteen products worth £172! It is full to the brim with fabulous products approved by Sarah Jossel. There's everything from hair care, makeup and skincare and the box features nine full-size products! 

I'm so excited to share with you what is inside!

Every week, The Sunday Times Style's beauty director Sarah Jossel reviews the latest products and handpicks her top pieces for her weekly column and everything in this box has been tested and approved by her to bring you the best of the best. It is high street meets high-end and it's fabulous. 

The box is available to buy now for £40.00 but be quick because you are not going to want to miss out! 

First up is a little something from Glossier, I say little but it's actually full size! The Glossier Super Glow Vitamin C+ Magnesium Serum has rave reviews and was actually on my to-buy list for my next order. The milky serum helps energise and brighten skin, giving that go-getting glow from within. I love Glossier skincare so know I'll love this little pot of glow too. 

Next, we have the Maxfactor Volume Infusion Mascara which helps nourish and coat each lash to give lashes a big beautiful boost. Maxfactor is my go-to highstreet mascara brand so I'm eager to try this as I haven't done before. I love the wands on Maxfactor mascaras so much! 

Super Facialist make an appearance with their Vitamin C+ Brighten Skin Renew Cleansing Oil. This was also in the Latest in Beauty Sainsburys Beauty Box so it's something I've been using recently and really like. It helps to dissolve makeup and leaves my skin feeling so fresh. It's a great bargain oil. 

The Soap & Glory Wonder Serum Leave-In Spray is a deeply nourishing treatment containing rich moringa and marula seed oils which conditions hair, adds shine and protects hair from heat styling. 

It's one of the full-sized items within the box too.

Keeping with hair, inside you'll also find the Virtue Restorative Treatment Mask which is a deeply hydrating keratin mask as well as the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Rapid Reviver Conditioner. I personally don't like L'Oréal Paris hair products as they leave my hair feeling lank but I can't wait to try the Virtue mask. It smells so good and I'm praying it brings my hair back to life as it feels so dry at the moment. 

I really love that there is a great mix of lower-cost products in the box such as the Garnier Konjac Botanical Sponge (£5.99) which is great for cleansing and exfoliating skin. I've used Konjac sponges on and off for years and it's one of my favourite things to grab in the shower to help my skin.  

For beauty, there are some fabulous products included from Nars, Clarins and Bobbi Brown all of which I already use daily. The Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna is my all-time favourite bronzers. I've used it for years so this has slotted in quite nicely in my stash. If anyone ever asks for bronzer recommendations, I always say Laguna! 

The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Pink is a beautiful, soft rosy pink that just glides across eyes to give a pop of dazzle. I have a few of these in my five minute Mum makeup stash because a quick slick of one of these and some mascara means I'm good to go in no time at all. 

They're such a time saver and come in an array of beautiful shades. 

For lipsticks, the Clarins Joli Rouge range are some of the best for easy to wear shades and the formula is fab too. This particular one comes in Soft Berry and is a beautiful, universal nude pink. If you're looking for a gorgeous lipstick that feels comfortable to wear on lips, Joli Rouge is the one! 

Incredible make an appearance with their For The First Time Bounce Blush in My First Love. The full-size pot of blush isn't a brand I've come across before but the pillow-soft blush gives such a flattering pop of pink to cheeks that I'm gonna be looking up some more shades! It's super cute and the perfect size to keep in your makeup bag. 

The last makeup focused product is from Revlon. The Colorstay Endless Glow Liquid Highlighter is perfect for adding some glow to your foundation. Just add a drop to your foundation, mix and apply or you can use it on its own by dabbing where the light hits of your face. It's a great little product.

There are two shades available in the box, Citrine or Rose Quartz and they're full size. 

I'm not that knowledgable when it comes to Elemis so I love finding their products to try in boxes like this. The Ultra Smart Pro-Collagen Complex Serum is a fab little product that helps to revitalise skin, help dehydration and even out deep-set lines. I'm really intrigued to see how this performs. The next product is from Avene and is the full size of the Hydrance Hydrating Cream. The rich moisturiser comforts dry and tired skin, giving it a warm moisturised hug which is exactly what we all need with this current cold snap. Avene is one of my favourite French pharmacy brands and I feel some of their products are so underrated, it's just really great skincare for a snip of the cost of others.
The very last product is from Malin + Goetz and is the AHA Treatment Solution. It's a blend of glycolic and lactic acids that help reduce oiliness, exfoliates and boosts skin clarity. I'm using a similar product to this at the moment so when I am done with that I am going to switch over to this and see how it compares. I love their shower products but are yet to try much of the skincare. 

And that is everything in the box! What do you think?

I'm really happy with this box and think it is such great value because I will use almost all of the products inside plus you just can't beat Nars Laguna making an appearance. 

The The #BeautyBOSS Edit (AD*) is available to purchase now direct from Latest in Beauty for £40.00.

  11. Latest in beauty have some of the best beauty boxes. I can’t get over the brands you get in this edit.

  12. I'd love to try that Virtue mask! I'm not a fan of L'Oreal's hair products either, when I was in cosmetology school all of my professors used it as an example of what not to use on hair unless you want to weigh it down - which obviously not very many people want to do. I'd love to try out a box like this myself, I'd never heard of it before now!

  17. I really can't believe the price of this considering the value and the quality of the products inside. That Bobbi Brown shadow stick is completely calling my name - I love easy, quick products that look like you've actually made an effort! I also really like the look of that Glossier serum. I'm slowly becoming obsessed with skincare and it looks lovely. Such a good selection of products - and as always, stunning photos!
