4 Face Mask & Christmas Movie Pairings!

Party Proof Makeup tips.

First look!

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray (10ml, $3.87 US)
Enjoy a peaceful night's sleep with the bestselling deep sleep pillow spray. Spritzed onto pillows just before bedtime, its award-winning, natural, aromatherapeutic Superblend of lavender, chamomile, and vetiver calms both mind and body helping to reduce sleep-associated anxiety and improve your sleep quality.
I’ve received this before and I quite enjoy it. I think this is a placebo effect, but this does work. I often have trouble sleeping before my first day back to work and find myself struggling to get a good night's rest. This relaxes me and I wake up feeling less tired. The scent is lovely, makes you feel like you’re in a spa. It’s not too strong.

Dr. Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Brightening Eye Serum - Full Size ($25.50 US)
Infused with Pomegranate Extract, the serum delivers a potent dose of antioxidant activity to the delicate tissue surrounding the eyes, smoothing and brightening for radiant-looking skin. Another key ingredient Raspberry Seed Oil, which contains a high amount of essential fatty acids and vitamin E, saturates the skin with moisture whilst forming a protective layer to help ward off external aggressors.
I have combination skin and I need to be careful that I don't end up with breakouts, but this serum was amazing. It absorbed quickly and the smell was gorgeous. Also, a not too intense scent, it was a nice fresh scent.

Grow Gorgeous Scalp Detox (50ml, $8.95 US)
Utilising plant-based actives and nourishing ingredients, the unique, cooling formula combines natural Castor Oil Beads, White Willow Bark extract and Pomegranate Fruit Enzymes to gently exfoliate the scalp, providing a deep, intensive clean that eliminates clogging impurities, product build up, dry skin and dandruff to create the ideal environment for hair growth.
This product was an absolute treat on my scalp! It left my scalp feeling revitalized and refreshed.

Karl Lagerfeld + ModelCo Brow Pencil - Full Size ($22 US)
Transform barely-there brows into full, natural-looking arches. Perfect and fill in your eyebrows with maximum precision and natural, buildable colour.
This is a quality brow pencil that has almost has that universal, will look fabulous on everyone, brown colour. I recently got my brows microbladed, but this is a nice addition for when I’m wanting a more dramatic look.

Illamasqua Hydra Veil Rehydrating Gel (7 ml, $10.50 US)
Part hydrator, part primer, Hydra Veil instantly hydrates and smoothes skin through a self-levelling, futuristic clear gel. Microalgae, Vitamin C and B3 work together to help maintain skin's hydration levels, creating a healthy looking, balanced finish. Plant extracts also provide a calming and refreshing feeling, leaving skin fully prepped to apply your chosen foundation.
I almost did not give this product a chance until I realized that it's a gel primer! It applies like a dream, hydrates and helps to keep my makeup in place all day!

Limited Edition Look Fantastic Beauty Sponge - Full Size
Use this beauty sponge to apply a wide variety of makeup!
I love me a good beauty sponge. This one seems a bit firmer than my beauty blender, but it does the job well!

Each box includes the latest issue of Elle UK Magazine.

A nice little closing note for 2018.

The December Lookfantastic Beauty Box included five products valued at $70.82 US plus the bonus beauty sponge and Elle magazine! The value is great this month, and there’s a nice variety of new brands and products represented. I love trying all of these UK brands I would not normally try on my own. My favourite item is the Illamasqua Hydra Veil Rehydrating Gel. This box costs $19 US per month, including shipping to Canada but I only pay $16 US on the year subscription (which is billed monthly) and only paid $20.50 CDN this month. I personally love that I can pay with PayPal. I highly recommend the Lookfantastic Beauty Box if you’re looking to discover new and upcoming UK beauty brands! Another fantastic box, Lookfantastic!
