Fashion Grads Beauty Box Event

A few weeks ago I was invited to a beauty box event with Fashion Grads in Preston. I was super excited because blogger events never happen in the North West and I was looking forward to meeting some local bloggers.

'Fashion Grads is an online resource which provides 
careers guidance and support to students and graduates trying 
to break into the fashion industry'

The Fashion Grads website provides advice, interview tips, and information on available internships and placements. This month Fashion Grads will be launching their first magazine too! You can sign up to Fashion Grads for updates and to find out about future events here.

Apologies for the terrible pictures, the lighting wasn't great!

The Event
The event took place at Rift & Co. in Preston. We had some nice cocktails and snacks (sweet potato wedges - yummy!). It was so nice to finally meet some local bloggers!

Beauty Boxes
We got to have a look through the latest beauty boxes from a few big names; Birchbox, Latest in Beauty, Love Me Beauty, You Beauty, and Look Fantastic.


This is the Habitat box containing five cosmetic samples and 2 lifestyle samples. My favourite item in here is definitely the Benefit Roller Lash mascara. I hate the hype around new Benefit products but I do really like Roller Lash!

Latest in Beauty

This is the Glamour Spring Edit box, filled with lots of goodies worth £99! You even get a heavily discounted Glamour magazine subscription too. I don't think the BeautyLab oil cleanser is actually included in the box, it just came along as an extra, I really like the sound of it though!

This Revlon nail polish in 'Pocket Aces' was in the box and I was made up to find it in my goody bag after the event. I love it! I've added three more shades to my collection since :)

It's quite a difficult colour to capture; it's slightly more pink than the picture above shows. A pinky-coral.

Love Me Beauty
I hadn't heard of this box before. I liked all of the products in it, especially the Cailyn Cosmetics Gelux Eyebrow Gel. I've also recently started getting into Lord & Berry products so I was glad to see their Smooth Beige lipstick in there too.

You Beauty
I wasn't blown away by this box to be honest.

Look Fantastic
This box is worth over £70. My favourite item is the NUDESTIX Magnetic Eye Colour. The glow in the dark brush is a bit weird, it felt a bit childish to me and didn't seem right alongside the other items!

My favourite box is definitely the Latest in Beauty Glamour Spring Edit box, it's great value for money and it contains a lot of items that I would enjoy using. Most of the other boxes only have one or two items I would like to use so I feel that I wouldn't be getting my monies worth.

Have you got any of these beauty boxes? Which is your favourite?

Thank you so much for the invite Fashion Grads, I had a great time!
