Look Fantastic October 2019 "The Cosmic Edition" Review
Each box comes with a booklet that includes product information and tips for how to use what you got.
I love keeping Look Fantastic boxes around to store makeup, jewelry, and other important things, because they are always so sturdy and beautiful.
Now, on to the items!
Look Good Feel Better Angled Blending Brush - Retail Value $9.20
Look Good Feel Better is an organization dedicated to helping cancer patients with beauty, hair, skincare, and style routines while they are going through life-changing treatments. I was a little surprised that they didn't have any info about this organization in our booklet, but here is info from the organization's website:
Look Good Feel Better is a non-medical, brand-neutral public service program that teaches beauty techniques to people with cancer to help them manage the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment. The program includes lessons on skin and nail care, cosmetics, wigs and turbans, accessories and styling, helping people with cancer to find some normalcy in a life that is by no means normal.
I think it is great that something like this was included, especially since I had never heard of this organization before. The brush itself is pretty great, a nice little fluffy angled addition to my eyeshadow brush collection with an awesome message behind it. If you want more info on this group, or if you are a beauty professional who might want to look into volunteering some of your time and expertise, click here to learn more!
Oh K! Chok Chok Holographic Fibre Face Mask - Retail Value $13.20
Ahh, I love a sheet mask. I haven't really had much luck with the holographic ones though, as they are often thick and stiff, and really don't cling to my face all that well. This one was a slightly better fit than usual, though for a $13 mask I still expect more. This one was full of hyaluronic acid which gave my skin an instant moisture boost, and it had a nice citrus scent.
EOS Lip Balm, 7 g - Full Size! Retail Value $4.99
This lip balm is so cool looking! Since it is beeswax-free, it has the benefit of being gorgeous to look at and also vegan-friendly. Though it is not as creamy as other out there, I rather liked the thin and hydrating finish and found it very pleasant on my lips.
theBalm Eyeshadow in 'Red Handed', 1.2 g
This rosy-bronze shadow is so smooth and richly pigmented. It takes very little to get great lid coverage and if you want more drama, boy, is it buildable! I tend to really like warmer shades like this, especially in the fall and found it worked well for day or night. It also was very lovely when used wet as a liner.
Very pretty, indeed!
Wet Brush Mini Detangler Brush - Retail Value $5.99 (currently on sale for $4.79)
This brush is pretty cute, though I need more size and power to deal with the unruly mess I call hair. You can use this wet or dry, though this brand's claim to fame is brushing while wet in the shower or bath. I rather like the turquoise color with the cute gold metallic splatter.
Polaar The Genuine Lapland Hand Cream, 25 ml - Estimated Value $7.03 (Buy a full-size 75 ml for $21.10)
Finally, our last product is a hand cream that I am really loving! It smells really great and feels like velvet on my hands. This is the sort of cream I can see myself using with overnight hand gloves in winter. It immediately improved the smoothness of my hands and absorbed easily without leaving any greasiness or film behind.
Here's the latest issue of Elle UK Magazine, which was included in this box:
The Verdict: Look Fantastic Beauty Box has a value of at least $40 this month without the eyeshadow (couldn't find its retail) or the magazine. This is actually pretty low for this box, and with a lot of that value tied up in a single face mask, I feel like there could have been a WOW product this month that just wasn't there. The assortment was still undeniably useful and actually pretty practical, so I am not too bothered, but hopefully next month is more of a wow.
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: At $19 for this box, each of the 6 items (not including the magazine) has an average cost of $3.17.
