Two weeks ago I received the May edition of the Lookfantastic Beauty Box, well hello a bunch of new goodies! This month’s beauty box consists of six products, two of which are actually makeup items and I already tested both of them. Then there are three skincare bits and teeth whitening strips, so exciting!
I was most interested in the Sleek Makeup Face Countour Kit in shade Medium, but I have mixed feelings about this product. This contouring and highlighting duo comes in a small compact packaging with a mirror. Although such small mirrors are not very useful at home, they especially come in handy when travelling or on the go. I love that the contour shade is matt, but both bronzer as well as the highlighter are too powdery for me. They have a lot of fallout, the shade is too dark and I the highlighter doesn’t provide the sheen I usually go for. I may be biased because I already have a lot of great products, but this one just didn’t convince me. However, my sister loves it and uses both shades on the eyes, too – my opinion by no means applies to all people, that’s for sure :) The EYEKO Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner, however, is a completely different story! Despite my hooded eyes, the flick was almost intact in the afternoon and the intensity was still there in the evening. An amazing item, I really recommend trying it out if you’ve had some bad experience with felt tips.
Next there are three skincare products. The luxurious AVANT RNA Radical Firmness Anti Aging Serum was probably the most anticipated of them all by beauty lovers. It comes in the smallest packaging ever and I only tried it a couple of times, so I don’t believe I’ll be able to say whether I love it or not. My skin was fine the next day, but should probably invest around € 130 to take a good try – but I don’t see myself doing that in the immediate future, haha :) Another skincare item is the This Works In Transit Camera Closeup, a mask, moisturizer and primer all in one. To be honest, I haven’t tried it yet, but I will probably test it as a mask first and then as a moisturizer/primer. I will definitely keep you posted if it turns out to be amazing!
The third one is the SkinRepublic Bubble Purifying + Charcoal Face Sheet Mask, one of the hottest trends in skincare at the moment. Exposure to air creates bubbles and fruit acid is supposed to eliminate impurities, exfoliate and give a healthy and luminous glow. I haven’t tried it yet, but I look forward to testing it out! Last but not least, every box came with a package of four Spotlight Teeth White Strips. This is probably the most interesting item of this month’s beauty box in my opinion, particularly because I would never buy teeth whitening strips myself. I already tried them once and I LOVED the effect! The strips were so easy to use and I really feel my teeth look slightly whiter than before, they will be used up in no time!
This box was not that exciting as I thought it to be, I was really disappointed with the Sleek contouring duo. However, I love the eyeliner and the Spotlight Teeth White Strips, and I’m pretty sure that both masks and the cream will come in handy. So all in all, this was still a good value for the money and cannot wait to receive the June Lookfantastic Beauty Box!
