It’s my favourite time of the month where I’m able to reveal the contents of the Look Incredible Deluxe May Beauty Box 2018 edit. I stopped receiving PR boxes from Birchbox and Glossybox as I felt like the contents was too repetitive and the quality of the products and brands had gone down hill over the last twelve months. Look Incredible however still excites me and I honestly feel they’re the best beauty box brand within the UK right now and whenever I’m asked which subscription service I’d recommend, it’s always Look Incredible – if you’d like to see what products they’ve featured in their previous Deluxe boxes, I have them all listed here.
There are three options of boxes to choose from; the Standard which is £25, the Deluxe which is £35 and the My Secret which is £65 depending on your budget but all boxes feature well known, full sized higher end products. One of my bugbears with other beauty subscription boxes is the frequent inclusion of sample sized products but there’s zero chance of getting mini sample sizes with Look Incredible which I really appreciate.
Each month the box itself is really luxurious with a metallic foiled effect complete with a ribbon and heart gem on the front, which makes it feel really special when the box arrives each month. Inside the box the products are nestled within shredded tissue paper alongside a menu card detailing the products and their individual prices.
The first product within the Look Incredible Deluxe May Beauty Box 2018 edit is from MAC which is very exciting, and it’s even more exciting as it’s a product from one of their limited edition collections. It’s the MAC x Selena Techno Cumbia Powder Blush, and is from the Selena Quintanilla collection and worth £26 which was launched to commemorate the Mexican-American singer 20+ years after her untimely passing.
There was so much buzz surrounding this collection, that it’s amazing Look Incredible have been able to source products from the collection to include in this month’s box. The pan has a split design with a plum shade on one side, and a pretty pink on the other and the compact is a gorgeous lilac colour – I love it when MAC use special edition packaging for their collections.
Next up within the box we have a product from Smashbox which makes me very happy as I’ve been really happy with everything I’ve tried from the brand thus far. This is the Smashbox LA Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color in the shade Laurel Canyon Coral worth £26. This is a large chubby stick type of product which can be used as a cream blush or lip colour, with a sponge on the other end for blending. I for love a good cream blush so this is a very welcome addition to my blush drawer, especially as peachy coral shades are my favourite so I can’t wait to give it a try.
I can’t believe we have Too Faced again this month as they’re one of my favourite beauty brands. Everyone talks about the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, did you know that they had another mascara?! The Too Faced Size Queen Mascara worth £21 has a ‘gigantic brush with long bristles to lengthen and lift and short bristles to grab, coat and curl for a lavish, layered effect and a finish that’s larger than life’. The paraben free formula contains Vitamins C, E and B5 helping to condition and strengthen the lashes. I didn’t love the BTS Mascara so I’m hoping I like this one more as the brush looks like my kind of brush, with natural bristles in an interesting spiral design.
The last product within the Look Incredible Deluxe May Beauty Box 2018 box is from a brand I’ve never heard of before… the Fusion Beauty LipFusion XXL Advanced Contouring Priming Plumping Pencil worth £20. After looking online it would appear Fusion Beauty are an US based beauty brand created by a team of women.
Fusion Beauty has been creating ‘cutting-edge multifunctional treatment cosmetics that help skin sustain a youthful appearance without having to go under the knife’. The product is described as an all day matte lip enhancer with a concentrated formula packed with collagen-filling spheres to redefine lips and get rid of vertical lines. It sounds really impressive and I’m intrigued to give it a try as I’ve never heard anyone mention this brand or product before.
I would love to know which is your favourite item within the Look Incredible Deluxe May Beauty Box 2018?
