The box came with a booklet that told me more about the products included with tips on how to use them. The rest of the booklet recommends other beauty products sold by Look Fantastic.
This month’s theme is SummerLovin:
“This month’s box has been packed with products to get your skin and hair in the mood for some sunshine.”
Bellapierre Lip and Cheek Stain .176 oz, Value $18
This is a baby pink lip and cheek stain with a creamy formula. I like this better as a cream blush than as a lip stain because it’s such a light pink. The color suits my fair skin very well and I like that it doesn’t have shimmer. I did notice that it has a very light scent that reminds me of IKEA. Guys, I’ve spent a lot of time in IKEA. (Scroll down for a swatch!)
Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil in Shade 06 Deep .11g, Value $8
I’ve heard good things about Benefit’s brow products and was excited to see this in this month’s box. They sent the darkest color, which is way too dark for me. The pencil has a unique chisel shape that lets you draw fine lines with the point and the fill in your brow with the larger side. It was easy to work with and stays put for 12 hours! Even though it is a waterproof formula, my makeup wipes removed it easily – glad I wouldn’t have to scrub this off! The full-size of this product comes with a spoolie on one end.
Here is the brow pencil swatched. I drew some fine lines and then used the wider tip for more coverage. The Bellepierre lip and cheek stain is swatched below the eye pencil.
Kebelo Silk Anti-Frizz Cream Serum .52 fl oz, Value $7
This sample sized product doesn’t include directions for use so I guessed that I should put it in my hair before drying – I was right! Sometimes you just have to go for it. It’s been so humid this summer, I’m down for anything that will make my hair smoother and less frizzy. I noticed my hair was shinier and silkier after drying and required less smoothing with my straightener. I am a fan! The product provides heat protection and is said to lock in color.
Nuxe Multi-Purpose Dry Oil .33 fl oz, Value $5.40
This is such a neat product! The gold flecks feel so luxe and the fragrance smells 100% like summer. It is great for adding a warm glow to skin for those of us who don’t self-tan. I don’t like all-over shimmer on my face so I won’t use it there, but I’m down for trying this in my hair.
This Works In Transit Camera Close-up .68 fl oz, Value $20.65
I used this after my regular face moisturizer because it says it works as a mask, moisturizer, and primer in one. It definitely had that primer feel that lets you know make up is going to stick to it pretty well. I used a lightweight foundation on top and it blended well and lasted most of the day! It did some oil control but as usual, my oily face conquers all.
Miti Bobbles – set of 3 Value
Throwback phone cord donuts! My hair is finally long enough to pull back (not on purpose, I’m super late on getting a hair appointment) and they’re very comfortable. I have very fine hair that usually kinks pretty quickly from hair ties but these left my hair unkinked. I wouldn’t wear these out of the house but I will use them to pull my hair back when I wash my face.
Elle UK Magazine July 2016 Value $6
If you read my review of the June Look Fantastic box, you’ll remember that I like tiny magazines. I don’t subscribe to any fashion magazines so I enjoy getting this one along with everything in the box.
The Verdict: This month’s box has a value of about $68 which is good for a $22 box. My favorite product (and the Editor’s Pick) was the ThisWorks In Transit Camera Close-up. It’s a higher value sample and I love trying new primers. I also really like the Nuxe Multi-Purpose Dry Oil and the Kebelo Silk Anti-Frizz Cream. Finding 3 hits out of a box like this is a definite win! The brow pencil wasn’t the right shade for me but made me feel more confident about picking the right shade up in a store. Overall I think this is another strong box from Look Fantastic – this is a great box for discovering new, higher-end beauty products.
