*November Look Fantastic Beauty Box
Price of the Box: Subscriptions start from £13.00 per month including P&P
No. of Products in the Box – 6
Worth over £75.00

It seems like as soon as we hit this time of the year out comes everything christmas related from party-ready make-up looks to glowy skin, no complaints here as it’s just one the reasons why I love this time of the year and for November Look Fantastic have followed suit with their Ready Set Glam edition. Filled with goodies (mainly make-up – yay!) to help us get party-ready, this month’s box not only contains a good variety of samples and full sizes but I’d say it’s probably one of their best valued curations this year not forgetting the addition of the latest copy of Elle Magazine which is always a very welcomed addition and comes in so handy during the commute to work! 

The Look Fantastic box offers a selection of handpicked, must have beauty fixes wrapped in a beautifully presented box and delivered straight to your door. The beauty box will always include a minimum of six products and offers a selection of skin care, hair care, cosmetics and body products, catering for every beauty lover.

This month’s box showcases products from PIXI, Murad, This Works, Bellepierre, Teeez and Flilorga.

Here’s what I received inside my November Box: 

Up first and just one of the products that grabbed my attention from the line-up is the PIXI Beauty Glow Booster in White Pearl (Sample size 12ml) and excitingly it’s a brand new addition to the Glow Boosters collection and forms part of the Hello Snow! Kit. This pearlescent radiance-enhancing lotion primes skin, creates a lit-from-within glow and adds a beautiful sheen to your complexion. It  can be used alone or mixed with your foundation to create a dewy glow and it’s so, so pretty. 

While we’re on the subject on favourites, the Bellepierre Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lip Creme is another winner and it’s a very generous full size worth £20.00. Described as a full coverage, high impact liquid lipstick that lasts for hours without the need to touchup, this certainly lives up to all of its claims! The opacity is excellent on the first coat however the formula does take a while to set but this seriously did not budge when I swatched it on my hand – it literally took me around 2 minutes to scrub it off! I received 40’s Red and its the perfect party-ready hue. There are different shade variations so you’ll either receive this one, rosy or a nude! 

Up next on the make-up front and something that really looks the part for this month’s theme is the Teeez Cosmetics Spectrum of Stars Eyeshadow (Full size RRP around £11.00 – various shade options), an intensely, eye-catching hue exquisitely crafted with staying power and is enriched with Argan Oil to moisturise your skin for a smooth texture. The eyeshadow is encased in a shiny gold ball and I currently own nothing like it – it definitely stands out! I decided to apply this while I was dusting and hoovering in my PJ’s (I’m cool like that!) and the formula is so dreamy and is almost like a mousse texture but what impressed me the most was even after I’d done all my house chores which had me all hot and bothered this lasted and still looked as fresh as when I applied it. I’m not going to lie, the colour is absolutely stunning and really pops but isn’t something I can see myself wearing but I love how pigmented and long lasting it is. 

Moving onto skin care is the Murad Essential-C Day Moisture SPF30 (Sample size 10ml), a powerful, antioxidant-rich daily moisturiser that aids in the improvement of skin elasticity, hydration and skin clarity while Vitamin C helps protect and repair the skin against free radical damage. It also helps prevent UVA and UVB damage with broad spectrum sun protection and the powerful antioxidants ensure maximum skin health while next generation Vitamin C helps improves radiance, firmness and skin elasticity.

I’ve not really thought about adding anti-ageing products to my routine however having said that I ought to as I’m in my thirties! This month all subscribers can also expect to see the Filorga Time-Filler (Sample size 7ml) which is a highly concentrated elixir, that corrects all types of wrinkles. With a Botox-like tripeptide, this  limits muscular contractions and relaxes the skin for a younger-looking face and also benefits from Hyaluronic acid for deeper diffusion and a visible filler effect. Filorgo claims that just after just 3 days, the appearance of frown lines is reduced by 19% so it will be interesting to see if there’s any noticeable difference – here’s to hoping the sample lasts that long! 

Lastly and to help you drift off to sleep is a sample of This Works Deep Pillow Spray (sample size 5ml) and it’s something that’s been featured inside many boxes including previous Look Fantastic editions! This spray aims to give you a relaxing and rejuvenating deep sleep and is formulated with natural oils such as Lavender, Vetivert and Wild Camomile which releases relaxing vibes so you inhale calm and exhale your worries.

My Verdict

Look Fantastic sure know how to pull off a theme and their November Ready Set Glam edit not only is filled with key  party essentials to help us get our glow on but I’d say it’s one of their best valued editions this year with not one but three full sizes on board and pretty decent samples too! Line-up wise, there was quite a few products which exceeded my expectations mainly the make-up items as that’s all I’ve tried so far (you can tell where my priorities lie!) but I’ve not tried much from Filorga or Murad so I’ll definitely be adding them to the trial pile. Overall, I think this month’s edition definitely ranks high in terms of my favourite boxes from them and there was quite a few products that were completely new on radar plus the majority is pretty usable too apart from the eyeshadow shade – it’s a little out of my comfort zone (the formula is lovely though) but other than that with party season fast approaching, I think you’ll agree Look Fantastic delivered a hell of a good box this month, it’s so on point!

I’ve followed Look Fantastic’s journey right from the very start and it’s a box that continues to grow from the box designs which are always so, so pretty, the expertly curated themes to the brands they source for us each month – apart from the occasional product repeats I really can’t fault their boxes and with subscriptions starting from £13.00 you can’t go wrong.

    How did uou count over £75 worth if I can count just £33?! Samples are free stuff as companies gives for free, so i think its very misleading! I have dine mistake by subscribing for a year and can’t wait to finish as so not worth of money at all and most stuff are so for your girls 🙁 not happy with this boxes at all

  • The overall value does take into account the value of the samples too.

  • Cadolyne Plum

    This is for me, by far the best box I’ve had for a long time! I received the ‘nude’ lip colour – by chance it is the PERFECT colour for me! I can’t see that you’ve mentioned what colour eyeshadow you got, mine is ‘minty haze’, which is a shimmery pale aqua with a two-tone of a kind of taupe (I think) running through it – unusual but very useable!! The other items are all from brands that I’ve tried before, just not these items, so I’m thrilled to be able to give them a go! Excited for next month’s box already! I would just say that I appreciate that the samples are accounted by the value per mls of their contents. If anyone can let me know where I can get these sort of samples for free as another poster writes, then please let me know!! Fab value imho. Xx

    • I thought it was great value too x

  • Emma Pratt

    Isn’t it 2 full sizes (the lip creme and eyeshadow) not 3?? Nevertheless I absolutely loved this month’s box, I wish I had received the green eyeshadow though instead of a light purple one which hardly shows at all 😥 xx

    • I thought the PIXI was a full sized! It looks like the same size as the one in the hello snow kit

      • Emma Pratt

        Ah yes, good point it does, I have ordered another for my friends birthday, hopefully she will like it x

        • Ah she’ll love it 🙂 x

  • Lara Delceppo

    I still have not received it. if by any chance I get the red lip color, can I send it back and exchange it for the nude one?

  • Catherine Smith

    I have been searching for what I consider to be the best monthly beauty box and look fantastic won hands down. BUT when something goes wrong like being double charged as I was it is almost impossible to get my overcharge back. I have been discussing with them my overcharge from Nov 17/17 even sending them a screenshot of the unauthorized debit. All I get are polite responses from customer service reps who know NOTHING. I am very dissatisfied with customer service. As of today’s date I still haven’t received a refund
    Not happy!!
