1 Year of LookFantastic Beauty Boxes: Worth it or Wasteful?

1 Year of LookFantastic Beauty Boxes: Worth it or Wasteful?

This March I received my 12th LookFantastic beauty box. Since this beauty box has a subscription plan that goes up to 12 months, I wanted to make a retrospective analysis of what I have received over the past year, so in case anyone is considering that subscription they might more or less know what to expect.

Did I find any new holy grails? Was there a lot of brand repetition? How’s the proportion of skin care vs makeup? How many products were just crap? How many full sizes?

Look no further, here are the stats:

Cult Beauty Self Care Goody Bag: Unboxing & Opinions

Cult Beauty Self Care Goody Bag: Unboxing & Opinions

It finally got here!

In order to get the Cult Beauty Self Care goody bag I purchased the RIKI Skinny mirror (review coming soon). I have been lusting for a good makeup mirror that would mimic natural lighting and allow me to do my makeup well even at night, but those things are expensive. At £175, it was the perfect time to get it, because the Cult Beauty Goody Bag required a minimum spending of £170.

Here are my thoughts and opinions about the goody bag.

Look Fantastic Mother’s Day 2021 Beauty Box (worth £216)

I have to credit Lady Writes (on youtube) for this, as she was the first to post about this (that I saw) and warn that this limited edition beauty box will be available February 22nd. She did a whole unboxing, I suggest you watch her video. The page for purchasing the beauty box is already available on Look Fantastic’s website (here). The product appears as sold out but I believe it’s because it did not launch yet and will became available for sale next Monday.

Shop & Tell: MAC’s 2019 Holiday Collection Face Compacts and Opalescent Powder (with swatches!)

Shop & Tell: MAC’s 2019 Holiday Collection Face Compacts and Opalescent Powder (with swatches!)

It’s been a while since I’ve been so into a holiday collection to want to buy multiple products from it. I actually got these as soon as they came out, in fear they would sell out, but only got around to post about them now. Is this still relevant? Am I still on time?

You have to give me a break people, my kitchen is in shambles. Pre-Christmas construction work. Fun.

Planning a wedding, renovations in our home, on top of the budget closing, objective fulfilling, end-of-the-year season at my job: it’s been stressful. And I’ve been well behaved. Soooo I got myself a few treats. The two face palettes because I couldn’t decide between them and an extra highlighter because it was pretty and shinny.
