The Beauty Box by Funmi Fetto SS18
The Beauty Box by Funmi Fetto SS18 is a limited edition beauty box aimed at Women of Colour which has been created in conjunction with Estee Lauder.
It is the baby of beauty journalist, Funmi Fetto, the contributing beauty editor of Vogue. Funmi has been a beauty journalist for many years and worked for a variety of magazines so she knows beauty inside out.
She created the box because she was always being asked by Women of Colour. what the best products are. She saw a gap in the market for a beauty box specifically for this audience and here we are.
The box includes eight of Funmi's favourite beauty products from brands under the Estee Lauder house. It is priced at £25 but is apparently worth over £75. There is also a leaflet with an Editor's Letter from Funmi and information about all the products as well as discount codes.
Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colour in Ruby (2.25g)
MAC Prep and Prime (6ml)
Darphine Hydra Skin Light (15ml)
Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer (40ml)
My summary of this box is that it is a great idea - we do need a beauty box specifically for Women of Colour but one that has a great selection of quality brands that actually cater for us. A few boxes that we have come across and featured on this site have lacked variety and quality. Estee Lauder is a great company for this because of their plethora of brands that actively create products for us.
The products that are included are a nice range - it's good to see Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer in here which is a great range and the refill mini tube that allows you to get a sample of the Estee Lauder foundation is a nice touch.
I would have liked to have seen more full sized products for the £25 price tag - call me greedy but the Clinique Cheek Pop is the only full sized product in here and that is worth £17.00. Two full sized products would have been justified.
Despite this I feel that this box is a lovely treat for beauty lovers.
