Hello beauty addicts!
I have been meaning to post a blog about this subscription box for some time and now finally I’ve done it! If you follow my Instagram, you’ll know I published a photo of this box and its contents, it’s a limited edition that was brought out for Christmas and its lovely!
I’ve tested a few subscription box companies in the last 12 months and this was the first time I came across The Little Known Box company. They have actually only been around since May 2016 and this was their first limited edition box. It cost £35 but for that price, you receive 8 full-size products and 1 travel size product which is really good value for money compared to some similar boxes, as you often only receive travel sizes.
Inside the box:
- Flint and Flint moisturiser
- White Rabbit Skincare, Orange Blossom & Aloe Vera Toner
- Terre Verdi Franchoulipom Facial Serum
- Saturated Colour Make Me Shimmer highlighter
- PHB Ethical Beauty Natural & Organic Black Eyeliner
- Glitter eyes pressed glitter duo
- Epic Blend Lip Balm
- Manna Kadar Cosmetics Radiance split pan
- HJ Manicure Nail Polish
So far, I have only tested a few of the products (see below for initial thoughts) but I am impressed! I love that there is a reasonable mix of skincare and makeup products and the quality of the brands I have tried is very good.
The two brands I was really keen to try were Glittereyes and Saturated Colour. I have heard so many positive reviews about their products that I was very excited to check this for myself! Below are the swatches for the glitter duo and the highlighter:
The pigmentation of the glitter duo is amazing! Both shadows are soft and creamy and after only one swatch the colour pay off is excellent and there is no need for glue. The highlighter is in the form of a pencil and is also very soft and easy to blend on the cheekbones, under the eyebrows or in the inner eye corner.
I also tried the eyeliner and the lip balm and again found both to be lovely products. I have always struggled to find a lip balm that actually moisturised my lips without feeling tacky, just sitting on the surface of the lips or worst still drying my lips out. This lip balm made my lips soft and sank into the skin easily and after hours my lips still felt moisturised. As a final bonus, it smells and tastes of cherry!
The eyeliner was equally effective, the texture of the pencil was soft so as not to pull the skin around the eye, it did not smudge easily and the colour was an intense black:
I will be testing the skincare products and the remaining makeup in the near future so when I do I will update this post!
This box is still available on The Little Known Box website if you are interested in buying it – I am already so pleased with the products I’ve tested that I have just ordered the January box! Watch out for a sneak peek of that box on my Instagram!
