Our February box is all about self-love. We have some exciting new and well-known brands inside this box as well as some up and coming indie brands. Our goal for 2021 is to continue to introduce subscribers to new brands who are both growing and global and I think that is something we have really achieved with the February box.
February’s box is worth over £53 and we have 4 new brands and 1 previously featured. All the treats in the box have been chosen with self-love in mind, which we think is especially important right now. So, whether you’re spending valentines virtually with your friends, at home on a lockdown date or chilling in front of the TV this lineup is sure to make you look and feel your best.
Without further ado, let’s get into The Self Love Edit…
Lime Crime Velvetines Red Matte Lipstick RRP £10
The Velvetines Liquid Lipstick collection was created and inspired by their founder’s favorite flower, a red rose. The liquid formula easily glides on your lips and dries down to a soft matte finish with a creamy, velvety texture – similar to the petal of a rose.
They a wide variety of bold, beautiful shades in either a matte or metallic finish, we opted for the Red Matte finish in your February box.
Apply your favorite lip balm 15 minutes before wear for nourishing application and longer-lasting quality and then layer on your liquid lipstick. The formula is touch proof and kiss proof so you won’t need to keep reapplying throughout the day.
Founded by makeup visionary Doe Deere in 2008, they’re known for creating colorful trends and innovations that have taken the industry by storm. Certified vegan and cruelty-free brand by both PETA and Leaping Bunny, their makeup and all of its ingredients are never tested on animals.

There are 5 shades to choose from and we opted for the shade Making Moves in your box. Making Moves is a tanned pink-peach shade. The formula is buttery and has a slight sheen to give you the perfect flush of colour.
For a smooth, even result, add a little product to a blush brush and run it up to the cheekbone. Or if you want to create a gentle burst of colour, dip the brush into the product, then apply to the apple of each cheek.
