CC Beauty Review – May 2017

CC Beauty kindly sent me their May box to review. I was so excited to receive this box as I had heard good things about it but was a little out of my price range but wow isn’t it worth it!! This is a high end beauty box that contains normally four products presented in a black box with bronze satin cloth inside, this month contained five. The box retails at £29.99 and you can either have a one off box or a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription. This price also includes free postage.

  • Lancôme Absolue Precious Cells Cream 15ml RRP46
  • Ciate Paint Pot unknown colour 13.5ml RRP £9
  • Too Faced Kisses & Sweet Cheeks in like a boss/dream lover gloss and blusher set
  • Too Faced Kisses & Sweet Cheeks in milkshake/baby love gloss and blusher set
  • Too Faced Kisses & Sweet Cheeks in crazy in love gloss and blusher set all 3 have combined RRP £36

Total Box Value = £91!
The first product in this box was Lancôme Absolue precious cells silky cream. I was really excited to try this as this with way out off my budget as the full size product at 50ml is £160 this was a 15ml sample worth £46. The cream itself really has a pleasant but not overpowering smell and is a really light texture formula that soaks into the skin with ease and doesn’t leave a greasy residue after. After a weeks use my skin feels softer and is more hydrated, overall a big thumbs up.
The second item was the Ciate paint pot retailing at £9. I have used this brand before and I’m a big lover! I have no idea what the colour is as it’s not listed and I’m unable to find the correct colour online. It’s a bright hot pink colour, needs 2 coats it’s not a usual colour I would go for a I’m a bit of alternative chick and this is a little bright for me but I’m sure my two girls will really enjoy it.
Lastly but not least there are 3x Too Faced Naughty Kisses & Sweety Cheek sets that contain a lip injection plumping gloss and a blush with a combined RRP of £36.
Like a Boss is a beautiful gloss that is a purply pink its non sticky and gives a light colour with the added bonus off plumping action. The plumping action give a light tingle but not painful this teams really well with dream lover blush witch again is a pretty purply pink it’s quite pigmented and could be buildable.
Milkshake gloss is a beautiful peach nude and this is my favourite of the three, again same formula as above. The Baby love blusher is a thing of beauty and has a hint off each shimmer I’m sure this one is going to become a firm favourite.
Lastly but not least deluxe lip injection is the same formula as about but a clear gloss so could be used with any look. This has been teemed with Crazy in love blush witch is a pink blush with peach undertones this a beautiful colour but a little goes along way so really good colour pay off.
Overall I’m really impressed with this box its definitely worth the money!! It’s also definitely a box to keep an eye on. I will be ordering a few one off boxes. In my opinion I think some people may find the 3 x Too Faced products a bit much but I personally loved them the cream is just amazing and worth more than the box alone. Keep up with the good work CC Beauty, a Box well done!
To order one of these Amazing Boxes, you can do so via their Website…
Their May edition (my box) is sadly sold out, I think bought by our members after my unboxing was so popular on the group! I am sure however that the June edition won’t disappoint!
You can get 20% off your first box with the code ‘1STBOX20OFF’ which makes a one off box only £23.99, which really is a bargain when you see the value.
