Hey my lovelies, hope you’ve all had a great weekend! I’m very sorry I haven’t posted in awhile, I’ve been extremely busy with applying for jobs and then babysitting. I was meant to post yesterday but then I came down with a sickness bug so I slept most of the day (Not what I had planned, booo!) and caught up with How to get away with murder (Which is amazing by the way, I’m slightly addicted). Now I’m back to myself I can get back to posting regularly again.
So, I’m a little late with posting my beauty box review for this month (Better late than never) and I have to say, it’s my favorite one by far, I was so excited when I received this box, It were full of goodies.
Soo a few week a go I received my monthly beauty box. The Look Fantastic beauty box is a themed, monthly subscription box which contains gorgeous skin care/beauty products. Some of these products are well-known and some are lesser known brands. Usually you get about 5/6 products, some are sample sizes and some are full size. The boxes are beautifully designed each month depending on what theme it is and the products always match.
The box cost £15 a month, personally I think this is a bargain because of the quality of the products you receive. Even if the products you receive aren’t what you would use you can save as gifts for people!
This months box is called ‘The Birthday Edit’
Happy Birthday Look Fantastic!! So straight away when I received this box I got super excited due to the silver stars (Cuteee). This box came with seven products! One of the products I received got me so excited as I’ve tried their products before and I’ve loved them. This Elle magazine included (This comes with every box) were so thick, the box were super heavy.
Now, I haven’t tried any of the products I have received yet as I have an habit of buying new products all the time but I don’t like using any new products until the old ones have gone (Doesn’t make sense to keep buying more.. I know, I’m addicted to shopping).
The products received are;
Illamasqua- Mini contouring gel sculpt: This is the product I am excited to try as I have tried their products before and they are fab! The texture is a gel (Obviously) and for me it has quite a subtle tone (I like to be dramatic with my contour) I tried it on the back of my hand and put a few layers on to build it up and it does start build more dramatic. It also smells really good (Never heard of a nice smelling contour but hey-ho). I am really looking forward to trying this with a full face of makeup.
Hikari- Full size eye shadow quad: When I saw this I got so excited because I LOVE my eye shadows. The colours are soo nice too! You get two neutral matte shades and two darker shimmering shades and they are the perfect autumnal colours. I tested them on the back of my arm and WOW they are very pigmented.
Christophe Robin- Cleansing paste: For some reason this reminds me of Christopher Robin yanno the dude from Winnie The Pooh (I love the film, okay?). Anyway this is a French brand that I never heard from before (I’ll never forget them now) It is a voluminous paste with pure Rassoul Clay and Rose Extracts to give your hair density. It also protects the hair and helps keep your hair colour.
Lolly- Elder-flower flavor: OMG, this is just the cutest. I got a free lollypop! I got waaay too excited about this.
Look Fantastic unicorn eye shadow brush: I am obsessed with unicorns at the moment, like literally I have so many unicorn things in my room (Well my boyfriends room.. oops, lol) so to receive a unicorn inspired makeup brush I was beyond chuffed (Small things please small minds).
Decleor- Hydra Floral Anti-pollution hydrating gel-cream: This unique formula helps to keep the skin hydrated and creates a protective layer against pollution (Amazing). Due to it being a gel like texture it’s perfect as a make-up base for a luminous finish.
Eve Lom- Cleanser and muslin cloth: Apparently this is ‘the world’s most desired cleanser’ in all honesty I have never heard of it but can’t wait to try it. It is a multi-purpose balm that fits all skin types and leaves the skin looking radiant and healthy. It includes a muslin cloth which will exfoliate, tone and improve the skin circulation (What more could you ask for, for a face product?)
