My Little Fashion Box

An exciting box this month. With New York Fashion Week just finishing and the start of London Fashion week everyone is going mad over the latest catwalk trends. My Little Box has collaborated with American Vintage to bring a box perfect for any fashionista. Packed with beauty essentials and an American Vintage treat, this is a truly great box.

The beauty bits

La Roche-Posay Hydreane BB Creme - I have to admit I was really excited to see this inside my box! I love La Roche-Posay products so any chance to try out something new is always good with me. I haven't had a chance yet to properly try this BB Creme out but I have tired it on the back of my hand. The cream is a lovely light texture which blends seamlessly into the skin. I think this will be a very light coverage product but for day to day wear I think it will be ideal. I usually wear a BB cream to work so this will definitely get used and I'm excited to properly try it out.

My Little Beauty Red Dingue Lip Colour - I wasn't massively excited about this when I first saw it in the box because glossy red lip colours aren't my favourite. However my first impression was totally wrong. Although this says it's a lip cream, it's actually more of a liquid lipstick. I swatched it on the back of my hand when I first got the box and after about a minute it had dried down to a matt finish. It was also really hard to get off the back of my hand, I had to use makeup remover to get the colour off.

I tried wearing the lip colour today and it feels really lovely on the lips. Similar to other liquid lipsticks it goes on smoothly and dries down to a matt finish. This did not budge at all once on, I could eat and drink and the colour still stayed in tact. I think this product is very similar to the Hourglass liquid lipstick and the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet.

Kerastase Forme Fatale - This is a product I think I'm less likely to use. This strong hold gel is to be used on damp hair before blow drying, it's supposed to add volume and lift to the hair. I have to admit that I am pretty lazy when it comes to hair styling. For everyday hair I let my hair dry naturally, it's only when Im going to an event that I bother to blow dry my hair. The product does have a nice light scent and doesn't feel to sticky so I may give it a go next time I blow dry my hair.

There was also a little fashion treat in this months My Little Box, a lovely monochrome print scarf from American Vintage. The scarf is made from a soft, lightweight fabric perfect for Autumn. Cut in a square the scarf can be styled in lots of different ways from head scarf to chic outfit accessory. I'm not sure how much wear I will get out of this scarf because I'm not a massive scarf person, so I think this will get passed onto my mum as she loves accessorising with scarfs.
