The Look Incredible Beauty Box aims to deliver lust worthy beauty treats from brands we all love and know straight to your door month on month. Each month Look Incredible promise to deliver 5 full size products that you would see on the high street which are diverse including best loved classics to new launches and no spoilers are released so it’s a complete surprise when it arrives.
The July edition features the brands Giorgio Armani, Urban Decay, Ultra Sun, Nanshy and Ciate.
1. Giorgio Armani Gloss D’Armani Lip Gloss in Beige – RRP £19.00
I think it’s pretty amazing that Look Incredible feature high end brands inside their standard box and while I’ve tried lots from Giorgio Armani’s fragrance collection I’ve never really explored their make up range until now.
The shade Beige is a pretty nude with a hint of peach but it’s a tad sheerer than I would like but it makes a gorgeous topper. The formula is a little a sticky but isn’t intolerable! The product card did indicate a eye pencil but they’ve included the lip gloss as a substitute instead.
2. Urban Decay Lush Lash System – RRP £28.00
Unfortunately I’m not blessed with long eyelashes so if there’s a magic potion to give them a little helping hand then it’s got my interest!
This double-ended system by Urban Decay contains a peptide-rich serum which penetrates into the root of your lashes to stimulate keratin, thickens, lengthens and fortifies your lashes.
The conditioning mask on the other end contains panthenol and vitamin E to intensely condition your lashes, helping them to resist breakage. The formula promises results in just two weeks so it will be interesting to see if this works or not.
3. Nanshy Marvel 4 in 1 Blending Sponge – RRP £5.95
Blending sponges are definitely my preferred choice when it comes to foundation application so having another one on standby is great for when my current sponge needs throwing out.
The Nanshy Marvel 4 in 1 Makeup Blending Sponge is uniquely designed to make applying your makeup as easy and flawless as possible. It has 4 surfaces which means it can do just about everything you need for you to achieve the perfect finish.
The quality of the sponge especially for the price is really impressive and boasts being cruelty-free too. I can’t wait to have a play over the weekend.
4. Ciate Corrupted Neon Manicure – RRP £9.99
The Ciaté Corrupted Neon collection combines the zestiest matte-neon paint pots with glitter and glow-in-the-dark topcoat to add sizzle to your summer manicure. Unfortunately it’s not really my cup of tea but it’s a fun set that you can mix and match. I’m a little disappointed that they opted for another Ciate set as one was only featured last month.
5. Ultrasun Sports SPF50 – RRP £24.99
This once a day application sun protection spray is fast-absorbing, non-greasy, non sticky, transparent and containa UVA and UVB protection and boasts being water-resistant too.
I’m hoping to jet off to Dubai in August for a few nights and with temperatures already reaching the 40+ mark this spray is such a welcomed addition.
With summer now in full force with today being an exception, this months Look Incredible box brought a nice assortment of seasonal appropriate beauty treats from a wealth of quality brands as well as a new discovery too. I really can’t fault their boxes and for a standard box that’s less than £20.00 it really is a fabulous investment especially when you take into account the quantity and overall value. Apart from the Ciate neon set, I don’t think there was anything I didn’t like this month and I love that they included the apt addition of the sunscreen spray as it’s such a useful travel buddy! If you favour make up over skincare then the Look Incredible box is the perfect destination plus it’s a great way to add to your current stash without breaking the bank. All in all they’ve come up with another impressive value for money haul that totals over £80.00 and with everything being full sized it’s the perfect guilt-free treat.
