Beauty Boxes, Blogger Reviews, Events, Make Up, Beauty, Skincare

This month I thought may have been themed for Halloween, but it’s not. It is in a gorgeous deep purple box though, which makes it feel a bit witchy for me!

Inside you have

#LookGoodFeelBetter Angled Blending Brush worth £8.99 create your complete eyeshadow with a blended diffused look.

#OhK! Chok Chok Holographic Fibre Face Mask worth £10.00 charged with citrus oils and skin boosting ascorbic acid, leaving skin bright and dewy.

#Eos Lip Balm in Shimmer Coral worth £6.50 a deep hydrating lip balm with a subtle tint and shimmer, infused with Shea butter, jojoba oil and vitamin e.

#TheBalm Foiled Again is the one I got, worth £8.00 it’s an intensely pigmented multi purpose shadows, very buttery soft too.

#Polaar The Genuine Lapland Hand Cream worth £9.90 I’ve tried the day cream which I loved, so I’m eager to try this out. Much needed it this weather. Rich in artic berries, it should be good.

And last but not least #WetBrush Detangler worth £7.99 a much needed tool with my hair, which is hellish. Helps to detangle without stretching and breaking the hair.

A bloody good box this month for me, glad there was no cleansers and fillers like eyeliners. As I have more than enough of those. But instead actual useful tools and products to use.

Look Fantastic Beauty Box #Heatwave August

Archive, Beauty Boxes

I totally forgot to post my last few boxes, I was too busy using it and enjoying it all. And of course I’ve been busy with life and family. So I will show my newest box. The August Heatwave (hope we get one) box.

In this it’s a box perfect for the summer, though weirdly I’m not feeling the summer lately, perhaps it’s due to no summers holidays here as daughter is busy working too much, and weather went pants too.

Anyways I’m hoping this box brings back the sun, and those heady summer nights where you drink Pimm’s in the sunshine!!

#Luxie 737 tapered highlighter brush rrp £26.50

It feels super soft, the handle is molded for a better grip, so more gentle on my hands (Arthritis really effects me)

#bellapierre heatwave highlighting palette RRP £29.99

Shimmery gold’s, silver, champagne, rose gold and coppery. But all sutble and buildable for strobing or highlighting. There are 5 buttery highlighters perfect for those summery nights.

#lookfantasticbeautybox #LookFantastic it’s the Nov box and because I paid 3 monthly it’s my last one (I had previously thought it had stopped) it was a pleasant surprise to see it arrive.
So they are embracing the dark nights, the glitz of bonfires and crisp autumn colours. In this dark wonder edition.

#LauraGeller baked gelato swirl highlighter in gilded honey, I’m not a highlight person, but I bet this will make a gorgeous gold for the eyes.
#Ren ever calm global protection day cream, I’ve tried this today and it’s really nice, soothing and smells spa like.

#BubbleT Dark wonder look fantastic bath bomb, I’m saving this for that 1st bath after surgery, it will be worth the wait!!

Mac Look Fantastic BeautyBox

Archive, Beauty Boxes, Blogger Reviews, Events, Make Up, Beauty, Skincare

Every so often the universe is perfectly aligned and the stars are for you!! This happened for me when I spotted a Collab I never thought I’d see. Mac cosmetics and Look Fantastic.

This box was full of delights to try out.

Small eye shadow Amber Lights 1.5g a highly pigmented peachy gold shade with a shimmer that delivers a long lasting application of colour. I used with prep and prime for extra pop of colour. Absolutely divine!!

Satin Lipstick Twig 3g this lipstick is an everyday go-to-shade with neutral rose tones and a creamy formula for comfortable all day wear. Can’t believe how much I love this colour. A nude for me is difficult to find, but it’s finally here!!

Little M.A.C lipglass Spite 2g this suits everyone lipglass shade, can be worn alone or over any lip pencil or lipstick to creat pout perfect shine that lasts. Again what a perfect colour for me, nude but not foundation lips, not too brown or pinky. Just gorgeous.

Little M.A.C prep and prime fix+ 30ml this cult favourite hydrating mist is packed with antioxidants and minerals to give skin an instant boost of hydration while setting make up. It’s good yes, love it for making the halo colour more vibrant. But as a setting spray nothing beats #GerardCosmetics rose spray slay all day

Strobe Cream Sample 6ml this iridescent moisturizer is packed with antioxidants and reflective particles to create a radiant glow. Never used a strobe before, but I loved this!! Perfect for party season coming up.

Last but not least Little M.A.C mascara in extreme dimension 3d black lash 4g this mini mascara that has maximum impact. In extreme dimension covers the lashes from root to tip, providing extreme volume and curl. I do love this, but it’s so difficult to remove!! The day after I still find bits on the lashes. And if chopping onions, the mascara runs everywhere!! Not what my #CharlotteTilbury does.

I’m over the moon I got to try Mac, I have never tried them before, an I was seriously impressed.

I’ve loved having Look fantastic and find them extremely good value for money. I’m only stopping now, so I can actually use all that I have, before buying more. I’ve found some amazing products, tried new things and totally changed how I view skincare. At 42 I’m not getting any younger, and I’m realising I can’t ignore it any longer. It’s time to stop abusing my body inside and out, and take steps to improve health not only through exercises, and eating better, but through the skincare and ingredients used. It’s been a lovely year of discovery.

My #LookFantastic my box came yesterday, I confess I honestly thought I’d cancelled it. Oh well happy surprise. This month is SOOOOOO much better than last month’s, this came with

#Elemis Superfood Facial Wash. I love facial washes and Elemis so this is brilliant.

#ChristopheRobin Cleansing Volumising Paste. Bit of luxury for my hair, so I’m keen to try this out, in a pamper session.

Wild card #Studio10beauty Liquid Foil I Radiance which is glittery goddess loveliness.

#VitaLiberata Self Tanning Tinted Lotion just what this Casper the ghost needs.

My favourite product is #Rituals Dao Body Cream to help keep my skin nourished and silky to the touch.

Look Fantastic Beauty Box #April

Archive, Beauty Boxes, Blogger Reviews, Events, Make Up, Beauty, Skincare

After cancelling #Glossybox as it was repeating too many times for me. I embarked on a 3 mths subscription of #LookFantastic as I’d seen #HollySurgeon blog about march’s box, you can visit it here

And I was blown away!! I too blogged about it, the quality and brands were outstanding. Now I obviously understand they can’t do that every month, so I knew this one would be more sparse.

However I was not disappointed at all. Exactly the opposite. I had an Elle magazine included that’s worth £4.40

Included in this box is #DrBotanicals Vegan Bergamot + Poppy Seed Exfoliating Bar that’s is 100g RRP £19.90 and honestly that is my box’s worth right here!! It smells divine, and I’m hoping it won’t be as messy as traditional scrubs.

#Nuxe Crémé Hydratante 48hr and for 15ml it’s £8.25 as it’s RRP £16.50 for 30ml I tried this out immediately and it’s absolutely amazing, soft, nourishing and delicately scented.

Super excited to spot a #Glamglow Supermud in here and yes it’s slightly disappointing that it’s only 15g but that’s still worth £12.60 as a 50g is RRP £42.00 saving this for a special pamper night.

Then the only make up product is a #Pur Super Charged Mascara which at 4ml the average price to buy seems to be around £6.00 and I actually need a new mascara so I’m keen to get trying it out.

#EmmaHardie Cleansing Balm 15ml I found this size on M&S site for £5.00. Recently I’ve really been loving these cleansing balms and I can’t afford Emma Hardie full sized, so it’s a lovely introduction to her products, and I must say it’s heavenly. So definitely saving for posher days.

Lastly but not least there’s #Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads, there’s only 10pads and that works out around £2.60 as it’s usually 60pads for £12.95. Again I used immediately and I loved that extra cleaned and toned face feeling. I’m definitely a convert, and I’ll have to see how to get them into my skincare routine.

The booklet gives you all the details of each product, and how to use them. Additionally they have articles on how to awaken your skincare routine, a guide to vitamins, a guide to Glamglow as a brand. And lastly some DIY masks you can make at home, and to Detox your make up brushes.

And right at the end, there’s a sneak peek of what’s to come next month and it’s #avant anti-ageing serum RTP £20 so that’s exciting!!
