The final Look Incredible Box of 2016 has arrived which now means I’ve had 12 of these boxes! Feels only like 5 minutes that this was the new subscription I was signing myself up for – and now all of a sudden we’re waving goodbye to 2016 and hello to 2017! Let’s hop straight in with the unboxing:
Korres Zea Mays Blush in Apricot
As soon as I saw the shade in this was the shade Apricot, I was excited as I knew I woild probably like the shade inside. I’m a peach toned blush lover and this is a perfect apricot shade with golden shimmer – It’s kind of too shimmery used opaquely (you’ll see the swatches at the end), but over another blush with a light hand – or potentially even as a highlight this will be gorgeous!
Laura Gellar Sheer Lipstick in Rich Pomegranate
Sadly this arrived damaged and smushed in the lid (RIP), This is a perfect pomegranate pink beautiful for this time of year. The swatch of this was balmy and glossy and I could see this being a colour and formula I would easily get obsessed with. Sadly this is definitely too messy to use I’m hoping to get a replacement of this – and hopefully in the same shade too!
Buxom Gloss in Sha-Bang
I was unsure whether to keep this one or not – I’m not the biggest gloss wearer but I know people do like the Buxom Gloss range. The colour Sha-bBang was also a perfect choice for me a gorgeous plummy pink with a shimmering pink fleck through it.
No 7 Intense Volume Mascara
This one is a bit disappointing for me, it’s only been a few months since we got a mascara in Look Incredible and it was a No7 one as well (which I haven’t been getting a long with all that well so far), I think I’ll be popping this one in my giveaway pile!
Spa Retreats Smoothing Body Scrub
Mixed feelings on this one, we got a Spa Retreats product last month and whilst I’m happy to have a body scrub alternative that’s not from the Body Shop, it feels a bit repetitive to see the same brand again. I also can not find where this brand is sold online or anything about it – it reminds me of a nice supermarket brand, but not the kind of thing you’d see sold in a proper store. The scent of this is different, I can’t quite decide whether I like it or not, Neroli, Citrus Nobilis and Ylang Ylang. The website listed on the product is chemistdirect.co.uk, but there’s nothing about this brand or product on the site – very odd!
I’m planning on doing a ‘Year of Look Incredible’ post – I’ve subscribed since January and I think I have some thoughts on the subscription after a year – that’ll probably be coming your way next week!
