Look Incredible February Beauty Box

I've been thinking about getting a beauty subscription box for quite a while now. I've seen so many posts about the amazing deals you get from them but none have really appealed to me to be honest. I've heard a lot of the time that the sample size products are just too small for the price of the box and that the product seem to be duplicated quite a few times. Eh. I had not heard of Look Incredible at all until one blogger had posted about their first ever experience with them and that the box she got was incredible in January. Their box contained 5 full sized products  - so I knew I was going to be a very happy bunny if I got subscribed to this box. 

So there we go. I have signed up for the Look Incredible beauty box and my first box did NOT disappoint one bit - I mean these brands are just yes. YES.

The first product that immediately caught my eye was the Tarte Maracuja Cheek Tint. This product retails for £20 and is a cheek blush tint in a brightening red colour. Tarte is a brand I've heard a lot about as so many people rave about their eyeshadow palettes so I was excited to try out this product first! Cheek tints mildly scare me a little mainly because I'm worried it will make my foundation move so I'm going to have to do a lot of experimenting with and will let you know how I get on!

Next was something I was so chuffed with. A Nars eyeshadow which retails for £18. Seriously Lookincredible? You're incredible. This is the Nars Single Matte Eyeshadow in the most stunning shade Grenadine. It almost looks as if it could be a blush but I can see this working in a gorgeous rose gold look!

Can you believe there's more? Here is the Fusion Beauty IllumiCover Concealer which retails for £16.50, quite a hefty price for a concealer I wouldn't normally purchase. I've actually tried this out and at the moment I'm a little apprehensive. The concealer is quite heavy and a little orange for my skin tone, but it's worked great as a blemish concealer for me rather than an under eye brightening one. 

Then came an Essie polish. I was actually so happy to see they had put a Essie Millionails Treatment in this box. My nails are in awful condition and always have been so I'm excited to try this product as it contains iron and amino acids, said to prevent all the peeling, breaking and splitting. Yes please Essie. Yes! This product retails for £9.99.

And what is a beauty subscription box without a gorgeous lipstick. The Estee Lauder Pure Colour Lipstick is absolutely stunning. I received mine in the shade Pinkberry Creme in 82. Guys this is the most beautiful nude shade ever. Retailing for £21.99 which is quite a hefty price for a lipstick, I'm in love. Now there will be a confession. I do have quite a few nude lipsticks and I think this shade would suit my mum really well so being the kind loving daughter I am, I'm passing this onto her as she said she's in need of a new nude lippy. 

So there we have it! My first every subscription box from Look Incredible. I could not have been more pleased. I will be continuing my monthly subscription which costs £21.49 (including post and packaging). 

I know this is a bit more costly than some of the other subscription boxes but this box had £86.48 worth of beauty products in it this month and I paid less than a quarter of the price for all the products. If you're looking for a subscription box that doesn't disappoint which gives you high-end brands and a variety, this is it! www.lookincredible.co.uk
