It’s my favourite time of the month which is crazy as we only have one month left of 2018, but it’s time for my unboxing and first impressions of the Look Incredible November Deluxe Beauty Box 2018 edit. I used to feature the Birchbox, Glossybox and LookFantastic beauty boxes on my blog but the contents were constantly underwhelming so I gave up on them as I feel the Look Incredible boxes are far superior. If you’re new to the Look Incredible boxes they have three different boxes; Standard, Deluxe and My Secret Box which all contain full size, well known higher end brands and products.
I have never received a disappointing Look Incredible box before and you can see all of the previous boxes I’ve featured on my blog previously here. I’m always so wowed by the inclusion of such amazing brands with the likes of Chanel, DIOR, Tarte, Urban Decay, Gucci, NARS, Huda Beauty, Too Faced, Makeup Forever, MAC and many, many more.
One of my biggest criticisms of the mainstream beauty boxes are the miniature sizes, samples and unknown brands as Look Incredible only ever give you full size products and the brands are always extremely well known with a fantastic mix of makeup, skincare and sometimes haircare. Let’s move on to see what’s inside the Look Incredible November Deluxe Beauty Box 2018 edit…
bareMinerals Clay Chameleon Transforming Purifying Cleanser
“Transform your cleansing ritual with this beautifully innovative clay-to-cream facial cleanser that combines the benefits of purifying Brazilian Red Clay and mineral-rich Sea Salts with the soft comfort of a cream.
Enriched with Papaya and Bamboo Extracts, our formula works to gently remove impurities and help detoxify, to leave your skin feeling pure, soft and supple. This skin-enlivening formula is infused with the scent of Bergamot and Mandarin* to help uplift the senses each time you cleanse.“
bareMinerals Smart Combination Smoothing Lightweight Emulsion
“Bring your skin back to beautiful balance with this lightweight oil-free lotion moisturizer. Powered by Intuitive Mineral Moisture Technology, Smart Combination Smoothing Lightweight Emulsion replenishes combination to normal skin with oil-free hydration to leave it feeling incredibly soft and ultra-smooth.
This moisture-rich yet lightly-textured emulsion helps to increase moisture levels for healthy-looking balance. Plus, a blend of peptides, ceramides and amino acids to help smooth rough texture, lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The subtle notes of Bergamot and Eucalyptus add to the sensory experience to gently enliven and awaken your senses.”
The first two products within the box are a bareMinerals skincare duo worth £25 and they can be used alongside eachother. One is a clay based cleanser and the other is an oil free moisturiser designed for combination to normal skin. I’ve only tried a couple of bareMinerals skincare products so I’m happy to see three lovely products within this month’s box which is well timed considering the temperatures have definitely dropped and our skin could all do with an hit of hydration right now.
bareMinerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion 30ml worth £34
“This dynamic, first of its kind infusion is designed to revive and help maintain your skin’s most vibrant look of health, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With our Long Life Herb Extract at its core, our formula helps to promote skin’s vitality, replenishing it with moisture and reawakening the look of youth. Skin is left feeling empowered, renewed and fortified, with enhanced resilience and a glowingly healthy look.“
1. EMPOWER. Unleash your skin’s vitality and radiant luminosity.
2. REPLENISH. Nourish your skin with essential minerals and hydration to reveal softer, more supple skin.
3. RENEW. Diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin texture to promote a youthful look.
4. FORTIFY. Give your skin the resilience to help defend itself against future signs of aging for a healthier looking complexion.
I think it’s crazy that the Look Incredible November Deluxe Beauty Box 2018 is £35 yet the bareMinerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion is £34 alone, so technically you’re getting four other products for one pound. I can’t wait to give this serum a try as it sounds really impressive, and Look Incredible have really thought about the products they’ve given us with a cleanser, moisturiser and serum that can be used together for a bareMinerals skincare routine. The packaging of this serum is so luxurious and I know my skin’s going to love it if the reviews on the bareMinerals UK website are anything to go by.
Lorac Cosmetics Alter Ego Lipstick worth $18
“Instantly transform your look with LORAC Alter Ego Lipstick. These sexy and playful lipsticks coat your lips in highly-pigmented color with an opaque, matte finish. Alter Ego Lipstick contains antioxidants such as acai berry, pomegranate, grape seed extract, and vitamins C and E. Whether you wish to be a Free Spirit, a Supermodel or a Sex Kitten (even if just for a night), Alter Ego Lipstick comes in a gorgeous range of colors from soft nudes to vivid hues to create any look you covet. Embrace your every identity and dress up your lips with LORAC.“
Next up within the Look Incredible November Deluxe Beauty Box 2018 is the prettiest lipstick from Lorac Cosmetics. I have a few Lorac eyeshadow palettes and lipsticks and I really rate them so I’m very pleased to have one of their Alter Ego Lipsticks, especially when the shade is as pretty as this. ‘Southern Belle’ is a super pretty pinky coral shade which really reminds me of the MAC Betty Bright Lipstick from their Archie’s Girl collection.
Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow to Go Palette worth £19
“Inspired by makeup artist techniques, this portable highlight & contour palette helps you glow on-the-go using healthy ingredients. Designed to work on every skin tone, the three exclusive shades have rich, cool undertones to mimic real shadow & light reflection for the most natural look. Two intense highlighting powders deliver a buildable, microshimmer strobe, & the universal matte contouring powder adds balanced dimension powered by longwearing Amazonian clay for fade-free payoff.”
Gleam – Pearl Highlight
Burst – Shimmering Sand Highlight
Chisel – Matte Contour
The last product within the Look Incredible November Deluxe Beauty Box 2018 edit has to be my favourite as it’s a product I’ve been lusting after for a considerably long time now. The Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow to Go Palette contains three shades with two highlighters and a contour in an handy mini palette with a mirror. The powders have the amazing chocolate scent which Tarte use for their powders too, and the shades look so pretty and wearable. I can’t wait to review this separately on my blog as it’s a beautiful palette.
So they are all of the gems within the Look Incredible November Deluxe Beauty Box 2018 box. I’d love to know your favourite?
