CC Beauty Review – July 2017

So here I am again reviewing CC Beauty for the July edition; and boy was I excited for this one. I may have seen a sneaky spoiler or two. CC Beauty is a high end subscription box containing 4 products. It costs £29.99, and you can have a one off subscription, rolling subscription or a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription. Also I need to mention that you can get 20% off with the code ‘1STBOX20OFF’.
This months box is worth a whopping £100.50! the items included are below:

  • YSL Double ended brush RRP £35
  • Dior Diorific Matte Lipstick in the shade MAGIQUE RRP £29.50
  • TALIKA Paris Lipocius Expert eyelash treatment RRP £36
  • 2 x Make up Forever AQUA EYES waterproof eyeliner Crayon SAMPLES RRP£16 for the full size

Total Cost = £100.50
Saving = £70.51
The first item is the Dior lipstick; and wow what a showstopper, a beautiful coral red in a matte appearance. This is truly a thing of beauty. It glides on beautifully and is lightweight and not sticky. The gold casing is stunning! (Although rather rude looking in my personal opinion) and also very weighty giving it a luxury feel.  I do feel this is on the pricey side but very well worth it and I will be buying this brand again because I really am super impressed definitely a new favourite for the summer.
Next is the YSL Brush usually I’m not a fan of double ended brushes purely for storage reasons; but this is a very high quality item.  The bristles are synthetic and feature an angled blusher brush and a small blusher/contour end.  The brush is soft on the face and easy to use and doesn’t leave too much product waste. I was pleasantly surprised buy this brush and will be a welcomed addition to my brush collection.
Now the next one is the TALIKA and wow this one was a big surprise. Initially when unboxing I wasn’t wowed as I had not heard of this brand, and didn’t really seem like something I would use; but how wrong could I be? Once I tried this I felt instantly guilty, this stuff is great! This product is for your eyelashes and it is to condition, re-pigment and curl and it definitely makes bold claims. I have been using for just under a week and my eyelashes feel and look so much fuller and sit a lot better. I have been using this product before I apply my mascara; I really like the lip-gloss end bit as great to get to the lash roots. I have already ordered a second for when this finishes.
Finally we have the Make Up Forever eyeliners.  Anyone that’s knows me knows I wont leave the house without black eyeliner…. so I’m always excited to try new ones the fact its a crayon and waterproof is a big thumbs up as I hate kohl pencils.  It’s long lasting and doesn’t budge.  This is my first time using a Make Up Forever item, and I’m pleased with it and the full size is a really reasonable price so I would use again. You do however need a good make up remover to remove, as it doesn’t budge. Great pick CC Beauty.
The Verdict
Well this has to be my all time favourite box that I have reviewed so far for CC Beauty. When I opened it I have to say I wasn’t that impressed; but after trying everything it’s just so good.  Moral of the story… never judge a book by its cover! Keep up the good work CC Beauty; I can’t wait for the next box.
