We’re almost nearing the end of month (time is seriously just flying by!) which means it’s time to unveil the August Look Incredible Deluxe Beauty Box and to no surprise it’s another excellent curation and features a wealth of quality brands such as MAC, Too Faced, Kiehls and Nars so you’re bound to come across some favourites. Focusing on mainly make-up alongside a skin care addition, I was beaming from ear to ear when I discovered what was inside – these boxes really do feel like a true treat and with every single item being full sized you can be rest assured that you’re getting value for money as the contents usually total up to around £100+.
Without further ado here’s what I received inside the August Deluxe edition:
Too Faced pops up a hell of a lot inside the Look Incredible boxes not that I’m complaining as I’m a huge fan of the brand plus it all seems to be current and available to buy so it’s a great way to grow your collection or to get to know them that little better! I think you’ll agree the most obvious winner inside this month’s box and one that will be hugely popular with subscribers is the Too Faced Funfetti eye shadow palette (RRP £29.00) which forms part of a special collection launched last year and the packaging and presentation is absolutely adorable. Aside from the adorable packaging, the palette contains a good balance of wearable matte and shimmery shades which can be coordinated to achieve a variety of looks. I’m really chuffed to add this to my collection and look forward to using it.
Up next we have the NARS Velvet Lip Liner (RRP £18.00) in the shade Patong Beach which is described as a rose pink hue. It’s enriched with nourishing Vitamin E and can be worn on its own or as a flawless foundation for lipstick. Designed with a handy built-in sharpener, the creamy smooth formula creates the illusion of a fuller pout – frame just outside your natural lip to enhance the effect. I usually go for these types of shades and I think this will pair really well with MAC Twig.
On the skin care front is the Kiehls Powerful Strength Eye Brightening Concentrate (Full size 15ml) which retails for a whopping £39 so it’s a very generous addition. This line reducing eye treatment for brighter-looking eyes contains a potent concentration of Pure Vitamin C 10.5%, known for its affinity with skin and powerful ability to improve the appearance of aging skin. It also contains Haloxyl, which strengthens, soothes and brightens the eye area, helping to eliminate dark circles. Admittedly, this will be the first time I’ve tried anything from Kiehls so I can’t wait to give it a go as my current eye cream is nearing the end.
It’s been a while since Look Incredible featured a nail varnish so I was obviously over the moon that one made its way inside this month’s box! The MAC Nail Lacquer (Full Size RRP £13.00) in the shade Sunset Sky is a mid-tone crimson and looks perfect for autumn. I’ve never tried any of the nail varnishes from MAC so I’m really excited to try out the formula.
I thought this was another impressive and well put together edit by Look Incredible something that they’ve really mastered recently and in all honesty their boxes very rarely disappoint as not only do they feature mainly make up which is just one of the reasons why this box really appeals to me but I’ve also discovered some great products from brands that I already love in addition to those who I’ve not had much experience with. Their August edit featured a good variety and put an excellent host of brands in the spotlight and although I’m a huge fan of Too Faced I think we are definitely due a little break from them! In terms of favourites so far, the palette is obviously a firm winner but I also love the look of the nail varnish shade and trying out the eye cream and the lip liner. For £35.00 and boasting a value of £100, this really is worth the price tag. If you fancy subscribing be sure to check out my previous reviews here
