I’ll admit that I’m not really a huge fan of monthly beauty boxes: they get a little repetitive and not that exciting, but I was so impressed when the new Spring Tili Beauty Box by QVC came in! Since it is only seasonal, it seems to be a little more substantial with some great QVC brands, which I don’t regularly see in other beauty boxes.

Available online at QVCUK.com, this beauty box includes some of my favourite cult brands in very generous travel sizes. For £20 you get a carefully curated edit of skincare, makeup, nails, haircare, bath & body products which makes this box a must-have if you will be travelling at all this spring/summer.

Let’s delve deeper into the box….

Exclusive to QVC, there is the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer 75ml in Coconut Breeze: a pre-shampoo treatment that super conditions hair whilst adding shine & bounce. This Coconut Breeze edition is an exotic coconut scent which really remind me of holiday and which I’ll be packing on my next beach adventure.

There are two makeup offerings: the Mally Shadow Stick in Smoky Quartz and Dolly 10 Lip Velvet in Material Girl. Both brands are available on QVC but I actually haven’t ever tried anything from Dolly 10 before. I always get excited to try new brands and am really impressed by the Lip Velvet; I love the nudey colour, it has a mousse-like texture, which leaves the lips matte but still comfortable and not too harsh. I’ve tried a few things from Mally before and always been very impressed, this Shadow Stick is no different and it has already made it into my makeup bag.

If skincare is more your thing then this box won’t disappoint as there are some must-have cult classics. There is a 15ml Pixi Glow Tonic; an exfoliating toner that helps perfect skin tone and texture as well as the This Works In Transit Camera Close Up – one of my favourite multi-purpose products: it’s a mask, moisturizer and primer all-in-one. Finally for skincare, there is a small Decleor Smoothing Oil Serum in Mandarin – which is a super serum that draws on Mandarin Essential Oil’s abilities to protect cells from Radical Damage; cleanses and detoxifies – as well as the Elemis Gentle Foaming Facial Wash to remove pollutants and impurities from the skin whilst maintaining the skins natural oils.

Everyone always needs bath and shower gels and there are two offerings in this box: a 50ml Molton Brown one and an Australian Body Care Tea Tree Oil Skin Wash.

To add a final splash of colour to your spring, there is the much-loved Essie Mint Candy Apple, the perfect crème mint shade.

Overall, I think this is an impressive box for any beauty junkie and I wasn’t disappointed in a single product – which has gotten particularly rare in beauty boxes. Since receiving this box, I have found myself reaching for its contents on a daily basis.

 As I am sure most of you know Tarte has finally arrived in the Uk on QVC with the first show starting on Friday 28th March at 2pm and then 6pm. I thought I would share my opinions on the Tarte products I have so you can have your shopping lists ready for tomorrow’s launch!

I have a handful of products to try but the item I was most excited for is the Amazonian Clay Blush which I have heard so much about from American Bloggers. I have the shade Fearless which is a beautiful warm pink that would wear on almost any skin tone. It applied really well with just the right of pigment and is very blendable, I’d love to try the other shades if they’re all as good as this one!

 I’d seen someone wear this mascara earlier in the week and had asked what they were wearing as it was that good. The packaging to Light, Camera, Lashes Mascara is different to anything I have seen and although I like it I think it would get ruined rather quickly if you are not careful. The mascara itself has a pretty standard brush which get’s quite clogged up with product making me think this mascara would get a little better when it has the chance to dry out a little. However I actually think this is a great mascara and I would happily replace some of my favourites with this, it’s incredibly black and gives fabulous volume.  I had also heard the eyelash curlers were good and I love the shape of them although I prefer the handle to also be metal as I think it gives you more control.

 They also have a little Amazonian Butter Lipstick Trio which includes Rose, Golden Pink and Soft Coral. Once again gorgeous packaging but as it is made of paper will get damaged if it takes too many tumbles at the bottom of a handbag. They all apply quite sheer but are easily buildable which I love and feel nice on the lips although can get a little drying after a while. They have a slightly glossy finish which is very flattering on the lips, I love all shades and simply couldn’t choose a favourite. They also have a minty scent which is worth noting but not much of a problem for me.

 I haven’t yet had a chance to try the Pure Maracuja Oil but will update you once I give it a go. I found the dropper however to not be the best, as product does drip out of it if you aren’t careful and doesn’t happen with my other oils. It also comes in Bamboo packaging which looks great but always makes me feel like I have to keep it instead of just keeping the bottle on it’s own.

Overall I am very impressed with the range, if you like fuller lashes the mascara is a must-have and I am sure I will repurchase it in the future. The eyelash curlers and blushers are also highly recommended and I can not wait to check out the other colour of blushers. The lipsticks are very cute and the trio would even make a great gift.
