First peek!

This month’s box is in purple, matched by purple tissue paper wrapping all the items. It’s also sealed with a purple sticker.

The items were cushioned with purple squiggles underneath!

Just like every month, we received a magazine full of product information and all there is to know about beauty and style.

The editor’s note welcomes us on the first page. There’s also a table of contents for you to easily find the page you wanted to look at!

“What’s in the Box?” corner is dedicated to the month’s featured products.

Along with the item description are some beauty tips and usage instructions.

They even have a Q&A with Kate and Melissa, who both work for Lookfantastic.

This month’s mood board is entitled Out of this World. There’s also a column named Beauty Dictionary, and it’s all about beauty products made with pumpkin.

More beauty articles that can help you big time! They even tackled the glass skin trend and some tips on how we can achieve it ourselves!

Another feature is about the best highlighters.

For fans of beauty masks, they have an article about that as well.

They even included a sneak peek for next month’s box!

At the back is a code for Lookfantastic Christmas Stocking!

Everything in my box!

A copy of Elle UK is also included each month!

Oh K! Illuminating Holographic Sheet Mask ($12.85) This sheet mask is a level up from the usual ones we receive because it’s holographic! It’s made with holographic fiber, which looks like a foil but way much softer and gentler. And if you think it’s just for Instagram photo purposes, it’s not. The holographic layer is designed to lock moisture in your skin for a longer time.

Also, this sheet mask is packed with lots of serum infused with moisturizing hyaluronic acid and a blend of brightening citrus oils. After use, it reveals a brighter and dewier complexion.

The Balm Foiled Again Eyeshadow – First of all, the retro comic-inspired packaging of this eyeshadow is really awesome!

The Balm eyeshadows have a great formula and this one didn’t disappoint. It’s well-pigmented and

I got a single eyeshadow pan in Red-Handed, a topaz shade. This belongs to their Foiled Again palette, which is composed of eyeshadows that have a naturally wet look when applied. I tried it on and it’s exactly what was described, the foiled effect gave it an intense color and made my eyes look more dramatic than regular eyeshadows.

Wet Brush Mini Detangler ($6.73) For those who often struggle with tangled hair, they included the perfect brush to get rid of your woes. The bristles are soft so they don’t irritate your scalp. It really helps in loosening knots, without the strands getting pulled out of your hair!

It’s pretty small, so I can bring it wherever I go. I love the refreshing color as well!

EOS Vanilla Orchid Lip Balm ($8.98) This lip balm is so cute! It’s packed in an egg-shaped container instead of the usual lip balm sticks.

A blend of shea butter, coconut and avocado oils makes this lip balm highly moisturizing without being heavy or greasy on the lips.

To open, just lift the upper half of the egg-shaped container.

The balm is clear! Even if you’re used to balm sticks, this is still easy and effortless to apply. I love how smoothly it the balm glides on my lips. It feels really amazing.

Look Good Feel Better Blending Brush ($8.98) A high-quality blending brush is a key to creating great makeup looks! This one is an angled blending brush, perfect for contouring and shading.

Every purchase of the product helps support thousands of people with cancer across the UK.

The handle is in white, with the brand logo printed on it. It’s slim and easy to handle.

The bristles are soft and non-irritating. It’s also easy to buffer around the eye area, if you want to create definition.

Polåar The Genuine Lapland Hand Cream ($11.57) Hydration is important, not just for our face but also for the whole body including our hands! This cream is specially formulated with an antioxidant-rich blend of arctic raspberries, blackberries, and lingon berries, giving your hands intense hydration and even protection against cold temperatures. It’s light-as-air and it doesn’t turn greasy!

Skincare and makeup plus beauty tools, that’s what this month’s beauty curation is all about! I’m happy to get a bunch of items that I can actually use, like the clear lip balm and the hand cream. Those two are my favorites because they’re such helpful companions especially now that the weather is getting colder and we’re more likely to get our lips and hands dry and cracked. Without the value of the single pan eyeshadow, the retail box value equals to $49. It’s still impressive!
