Hellooooooo! It’s time for another beauty box post. I feel like it’s only been a couple of days since my last one, but the arrival of all the new boxes begs to differ! I feel like I’m especially excited for the July ones as now I’m really thinking ‘I could use this on my wedding day,’ when rummaging through all the new products. (Less than a week to go now!) Here goes…
First of all – how pretty is this box! I can’t wait to take it into everyday use. I mean, I haven’t decided how I’m going to do that yet, but I’m sure I’ll figure it out. If you have any ideas, let me know 🙂
Jelly Pong Pong, Bare Necessities Highlighting Pencil. It’s a 4 in 1 illuminator, waterliner, concealer and base. With its pretty pinkish hue I see myself using it for waterlining and maybe for some eye shadow/liner works.
MoroccanOil, Hydrating Styling Cream. It’s a leave in cream to eliminate frizz, add definition and shine, while argan oil conditions and hydrates the hair. I tried it out this morning and quite liked it. It smelled really nice and left my hair gorgeously shiny. And with that being one of my life goals, I was quite pleased. I don’t think it’s actually one of my life goals. But hey, let’s just go with it alright?
Hot Makeup, Large Bronzer. I did NOT realise how pigmented this was so I just swished it on, as you do, and my jaw dropped when I then looked like I’ve spent a full week frying in the sun. So yes, I shall endeavour to be a bit more light handed with it in the future. Other than the huge colour pay off (which is actually a good thing), it did look nice with a gentle shimmer.
Cowshed, Chamomile Refreshing Toner With Spritz Cap. Love it. I used it to remove the excess bronzer I’d swooshed on and it was SO refreshing. It felt almost minty. Will definitely bringing that with me for the day after the wedding.
Mimitika, Sun Cream. Well it’s something that I’ll always need and even though the pot is quite small, I think it’s going to last me a loooong time. So the compact size just makes it easier to travel with. It’s meant specifically for face, has high protection (SPF 50) and promises to enhance tanning.
Regenerate, Toothpaste. I mean… Again something that most of us probably use. This one is very glittery looking though. As in, it looks like something unicorns use to brush their teeth. It doesn’t really taste of anything. But you know, I’ll probably use it as it’s convenient travel size. Plus it’s so shiny!
Imedeen, Advanced Beauty Shot. It tasted verrrrry lemony. I didn’t mind getting it in my box, but I wouldn’t buy it myself as I don’t see much point in it to be honest. I mean, I love fruit anyway so I’m already getting my vitamins and stuff. It also didn’t smell nice.
That’s it! That’s my July Lookfantastic beauty box. Overall I loved the contents of it, except for a couple of smaller additions. But hey, I can’t like everything in every box. I got a couple of things I’ll be taking with me when getting ready for the big day and some things I’ll be using the day after.
I call that a success.
