I popped along to the Latest In Beauty Beauty and The Beast event, who could resist the opportunity? It was held in The Lanesborough hotel in London, which is incredibly opulent, add in the decoration from the team, beauty stations giving hand massages and manicures, flowing champagne and delicious canapes, well I felt as if I’d walked into a fairy tale of my own.
The Latest In Beauty team did a wonderful job and were incredibly welcoming, which was needed as I was felt very underdressed. Did I mention that most people had arrived in beautiful cocktail dresses and dressed to the nines? I turned only slightly dressed up with comfort at the fore – I blame my day of meetings and travelling around London.
I did enjoy a nice glass of fizz while I examined the Beauty Box and the Beast Box. I was thoroughly impressed with each. I was half tempted to ask for the Beast Box too, it had all the things any man might need to freshen up and feel good about himself. I also got to catch up and meet a few blogger friends. It was so nice to finally have the chats with Sally from Say Sally May, Helen from Little Hels B and I met Scarlet from Scarlett London.
I have to say, I was amazed by the single rose under the bell jar. It was a real rose and it would drop it’s petals slowly. It was clearly taken from the film. Obviously. I wasn’t the only blogger in the room to take lots of photos. They will likely appear on my Instagram for the next wee while. One may be there already…
As you might have guessed, I got the Beauty Box, I was a tad delighted. The box itself is beautiful, it looks like a book and feels nice and sturdy – I point this out as I’m sure I’m not the only one that will reuse this box…in fact, it may now live on my bookshelves. You can buy your own Latest In Beauty Beauty And The Beast Box here.
Now on to the contents. We have the Gatineau Radiance Enhancing Gommage, L’Occitane Rose et Reines Hand & Nail Cream, Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo, Soigné Botanique Nail Polish in Betteraves Rouge, Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Blush Basin, Caudalíe Vinosoure Moisturizing Sorbet and finally a beautiful gold compact mirror from Latest In Beauty. I love the little detail of the rose on the top.
