Happy New Year and welcome to 2017! I’m a little bit behind what with just having the Christmas festivities so this blog is a little one about what goodies I received in December’s Look Incredible Beauty Box. I love this beauty box because you actually get a lot of makeup products in it and they are all full size.
First up is the Laura Geller Crème Sheer Hydrating Lip Colour in the shade Rich Pomegranate. This feels like a lip balm which is nice, but as you know I’m not a fan of sheer lip products and this one didn’t change my mind on that. The colour payoff is better than others I’ve tried and lasts a bit longer, but I felt like if I pressed too hard this was going to melt against my lips when applying it, so have a light hand! As you can see, mine arrived with a chunk knocked off of the tip. This has jojoba, vitamin E and Shea butter to moisturise your lips and it really does do a good job at that. This retails at £21.00
I love the packaging the Buxom lip glosses come in, they are nice and chunky. This gloss has a light spearmint scent, it claims not to tingle but it does a little (saying that I do have extremely sensitive lips, so this might not be the case on anyone else!) It’s a lovely shimmery mauve plum colour and feels really hydrating on the lips. If you like glossy lip glosses you’re going to love this as it is so glossy and shiny! Really impressed with the shine! I know this is a gloss but I find it quite thick and sticky but if you don’t mind that then this is great as it contains jojoba oil and vitamin E to help moisturise your lips. This retails at £16.00
Next is the No7 Intense Volume Mascara in Black. I love the shape of this tube! It’s very sleek looking. The mascara itself is a nice mascara. I found that it did add body to my lashes but the wand was a little big for me, (I do have little eyes so I’m sure the majority of you would love the wand size on this!) I found it a little long but that wasn’t a problem. It’s nothing like the Better Than Sex mascara wands which I really don’t like at all! This retails at £9.99 which a great price for what you get!
This claims to have a luminous finish and it does! If you used this lightly, this would be great as a highlighter! It’s so smooth and velvety to apply and gives a gorgeous light golden peach glow to the cheeks. I’m really impressed with the Korres range, I’d never tried their makeup before I received items in the Look Incredible Beauty Box and I’m so glad I have as they are a really high standard. This retails at £14.50
Lastly is the Spa Retreats Signature Smoothing Body Scrub. This smells of mandarin and is absolutely wonderful. This has citrus Nobilis Neroli and ylang ylang essential oils and coconut shell granules to exfoliate, with added coconut oil to nourish the skin. And to top this off, it’s huge! I know I said I love these boxes because you get more makeup products, but I’m probably most excited about this right now. It’s sooooo nice! This retails at £15.00
All in all, I’m super happy with December’s beauty box. The total value of this box was £76.49 and I only paid £21.50. I can’t wait for January’s box! :)
