Look Incredible Standard Box Review: April 2017



So I've been on the hunt for a beauty box for quite some time now. I have to admit I am uber fussy when it comes to which beauty box I choose to spend my hard earned penny's on, so much so that I would rather wait for the reviews or look at other bloggers sneak peak of the box before deciding to buy it.(providing its not a
popular branded box....I'm still crying over that Lemer Look Fantastic Box)

A bit extreme but when you've had the experience of purchasing makeup or beauty products that aren't suited to you or your a person that prefer makeup more that skincare products or vice versa you naturally become slightly selective. When looking for a beauty box I tend to gravitate to a box that is well balanced when it comes to makeup and other products whether its skin, haircare ect. 

Alternatively I also like a box that has heaps of makeup in it. Unless its a brand that I know is great I won't really gravitate to a all skincare or hair care filled box. But that's just my personal preference.


BOX CONTENTS

So the box contained 6 products one of the products was a duo so it can be classed as 7.This box contained more makeup products and the brands that attracted me most to the box were Nars, Colour Draine, Soap and Glory and Sisley because there are brands I have
 read good things about.The other items in the box were pretty new to me. The box retails at 18.99 a month(UKonly) plus P&P, the box contents value is a whopping £87.24 containing full size products and 1 sample size product. The box usually has 5 full size products so not sure if the soap and glory was an extra.( I ain't complaining whoop whoop)


THE RUNDOWN


Nars Velvet Shadow Stick|(RRP £21) Every customer that purchases this will get it in the same colour Dark Angel and without even reading the description I applied it to my eyes and I found it so creamy and blendable. Based on the description it says it wouldn't fade, smudge or crease cant wait to put it to the test but so far I absolutely love it.
Coloured Raine Matte Lip Paint(RRP£15) Never tried anything from coloured raine and if you've seen my unboxing on my instastories you would have seen that I expected to receive Mars because I saw many people receive this colour. I was quite shocked to see Marshmallow because I didn't know you can receive one of four colours.However, I was curious to try it after seeing a YouTuber pair it with a purple shadow such a nice look. The colour when first applied I thought it didn't suit me at all but when it dried it didn't look that bad I plan to line it with my Mac Chestnut to see how it looks but because it is a stone shade brown its really close to my skin tone, it might need a liner.  Full thoughts on this will be in my series that I do on Liquid Lipsticks so subscribe to my email list or give me a follow on Bloglovin.
Josie Maran Infinite Argan Enlightment Duo(RRP£20)- Never even heard of this brand but the first part of the duo is a Argan Infinity Intensive Cream Oil it apply's as a cream then turns to an oil. You can apply this to anywhere you need hydration lips, face ect I wasn't extremely excited about it but I will give you an update on IG. The second half of the duo interested me a bit more it was an Argan Enlightment Illuminizer  that you put all over your skin for a beautiful lit from within glow.Cant wait to put this under my foundation as advised because I'm all about that glow.
Sisley Concealer Brush(RRP £13.99)- So excited to use this to apply my concealer the brush is so tiny to reach under eyes or apply concealer to places you want to cover up.
Wild about Beauty Eyeshadow Pencil Duo(RRP £14.99) Never heard of this brand either and I quite surprised that there was two eye-shadow products in the box but one side of the pencil was a grey glitter which I loved and the other side was black because dark angel looks black its a dark brown I was more excited about the grey side of the duo. But on the pluside I practically have everything I need to do a smokey eye in the box.
Soap and Glory Heels Genius(Sample size) Original size is £5.50 I am so excited to use this I rubbed some all over my feet and it felt so soft, really happy to get this in the box will probably purchase some more items from this brand.

 MY FINAL THOUGHTS

Overall this was a pretty good box the brands I was mostly excited about didn't disappoint. In terms of the new discoveries I can't wait to try them more and see what there like. I love Argan Oil so the Jose Maran I'm pleased with in terms of a new discovery. Its nice receiving a box where all the products you will actually use. Can't wait to do some in-dept reviews on some of them.

What's your favourite beauty box? Have you tried any of the brands in this box. Be sure to leave a comment below I'd love to know what you think:)
