Beauty boxes are definitely having a well-deserved moment this month! The majority of companies have somewhat upped their game for February this could of course be due to Valentine’s Day but I’m pleased to report that Look Incredible have also followed suit with an edition that’s quite possibly one of my favourites to date. Covering a make-up only line up in addition to a nail varnish I was particularly excited by this box as there wasn’t one single dud, all the shades they picked out were wearable and it was refreshing to see a few new brands on board this month – lots to love right? Here’s what they featured:
Up first and the main showstopper amongst the line-up is this gorgeous embossed Sheer Eye shadow by Burberry in the shade Dark Sable (RRP £23.00) and it’s housed in a sturdy, square compact with Burberry’s signature pattern. Despite being marketed as sheer it’s not sheer at all, in fact it’s very pigmented in just one swipe, silky soft, finely milled and blends super easily. This is my first foray into Burberry eyeshadows and from the swatches alone I’m in love but it’s such a shame they opted for a cheap looking doe foot applicator as opposed to a brush!
The Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil (Full size RRP £15.00) has been featured countless times inside subscription boxes, it was actually inside the March box last year but in a different shade! I think there may be variations in terms of the shades but I received Baroque which is a raspberry red with a warm tone. The formula is super hydrating and glossy to a point where it also makes the lips look that little more plumper but I still prefer their matte lip pencils!
Next is the Studio 10 Lift Longwear Liner in Mocha (RRP £22), a brand I’ve had very little experience with but this innovative double-ended liner and quick fix for wide-awake promises to defines and brighten, or blends as the perfect shadow with an ultra creamy, smudge and waterproof formula that’s enriched with Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E.
Another product I couldn’t wait to try was the Laura Gellar Spackle Fortified Makeup Primer (Full Size RRP £25), a supercharged and award-winning formula to create a flawless canvas so make-up glides on and looks freshly-applied for hours it also contains soothing botanicals and age-fighting antioxidants that help promote skin elasticity and protect from free radicals. I can’t say this did anything special in comparison to what I currently use but the formula is a great choice for oily skin and did keep my foundation in tact throughout the day so I’ll definitely get lots of use out of this.
Last but not least is the Nails Inc Matchbox (RRP £15.00). a duo set that features a long wear Gel effect nail polish paired with a matte effect lip paint created in collaboration with Make up Artist Lottie Tomlinson. This particular set is probably what I would have picked out myself as the others look a little too daring for me so I’m really pleased that Look Incredible featured this amongst the line up.
Overall, I think this month’s Look Incredible Box contained a pretty awesome selection so I imagine a lot of subscribers were happy with what they got, I know I certainly was even more so as all the shades they picked out were wearable and even satisfied someone like me who’s extremely picky! I am perhaps the most excited about discovering the Burberry eye shadow as my first introduction was a positive one and it’s certainly encouraged me to explore more from their beauty collection. The primer was a little bit of a let down and although it’s been marketed as super charged it did nothing that my current primer doesn’t do but the formula was well suited for my oily skin. All in all this box had quite a few highlights that I’m delighted to welcome to my beauty stash and the contents total up to a whopping £107 this month!
