Latest in Beauty have been releasing limited edition collection after limited edition collection recently and they've just been getting better and better so hold on to your chairs folks because if this beauty edit doesn't knock you over, I'll be shocked. 

The never-before-seen collection has received the ultimate stamp of approval from international makeup artist, Caroline Barnes, and the beauty team at LiB and boy are you in for a treat! Featuring brands she works with, beauty experts and industry friends she trusts along with her genuine beauty picks, this collection is packed with ten products, including eight full-sized products from brands including Illamasqua, Murad, KJH x Spectrum, Sculpted by Aimee and more.

With contents worth £241, the Caroline Barnes - Beauty Expert Edition will retail at £74.00 and as mentioned above will include ten products with eight being full-size - it's such a brilliant box. I find Latest in Beauty is always super generous with what they include so it is always worth the money. 

The two products that aren't full-size is Kate Somerville's ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment and the Trish McEvoy Intense Gel Eye Liner in Deep Aubergine. To be completely honest, both products are a really great size so you don't even notice that they're sample size. I can't wait to try the eyeliner, it felt super smooth when I swatched it on my hand when I first opened the box. 

While I'm very familiar with all the brands featured, all the products are new to me and oh are there some fab ones. I can't wait to use more of the Murad Intense Recovery Cream, James Read H20 Tan Drops and the oh so gorgeous Illamasqua Elemental Artistry Palette.

I'm gonna give you a quick rundown on my top picks from this box from the products I haven't tried before:

Sculpted by Aimee Liquid Lights Gilded Glow
I've heard excellent things about Liquid Lights so I can't wait to see if it works as well as the reviews say. The champagne gold highlighter aims to give skin a natural glow as it's infused with subtle light-reflecting ingredients to give a dewy, luminous look. I've only swatched it on my hand so far and it's beautiful!

I adore Spectrum Collections and to be honest, they're the only brushes I use so I can't wait to get to grips with these. Laura Lou Makeup did a great piece on the Spectrum X KJH Collection and I've been lusting after them ever since. This particular set feature brushes 03 and 06, 03 is perfect for creams and powders while 06 is best for use with foundation. Such a great addition to the beauty edit.

Perfect for dry or severely dry skin types, this intensive cream is formulated with microalgae extract, mirabilis Jalapa plant extract, shea butter and macadamia oil to deeply hydrate and moisturise skin. It soothes redness and irritation leaving behind soothed and relaxed skin. Perfect if you really feel the effects of environmental change.

I adore Illamasqua but I've only used their base products and lipsticks over the years but oh my is this palette my kinda thing! Featuring 12 smokey-eye approved shades - the palette boasts a variety of highly pigmented shades that can easily take you from day to night. From neutrals to bold and shimmery, it's the universal palette everyone will love. I'm obsessed with the neutral matte shades across that top line.
