LookFantastic Beauty Box September 2016: 2nd Anniversary

September is LookFantastic's birthday month, so it was only natural to expect a special box. They had promised a BareMinerals lipstick in this box, and I expected a mini from the new Gen Nude matte lippies. There are 20 nude shades of this lipstick, so you cannot really go wrong with those. I had secretly hoped for the Gen Nude Matte Lipcolours - that would have really made my month. The box, as expected, is themed and designed to mark the second anniversary of the LookFantastic's launch.

BareMinerals Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready
When you send a lipstick within a month of a new product's launch (Gen Nude), naturally, people will expect that lipstick. Nonetheless, the shade is PERFECT for me.

Christophe Robin Purifying Shampoo 
Now that I have short hair, I am giving up on CO-washing for a while, to get rid of years of product build-up from my scalp. Christophe Robin makes AMAZING hair masks, so I'm looking forward to trying his shampoo as well.

Argan Liquid Gold Multi-Tone BB Cream
I was worried about shade-matching - always a problem when you send out face makeup in beauty boxes - but this is supposed to adapt to the skintone. I suppose it is easier when coverage isn't full.

Bliss Lemon and Sage Maximum Moisture Cream
We've seen this in LookFantastic boxes before - even this year. I love getting body creams and lotions since I'm always running out.

Gatineau Collagene Expert Eye Pads
These moisturising pads will soothe and hydrate the under-eye area in just 10 minutes. I will be using them over the coming weekend. 

Lord & Berry Mini Strobing Pencil
They were supposed to send out a luminiser stick, but I think those did not arrive, so they've sent this and a discount coupon to make up for the disappointment. I don't like the idea of swiping a thin pencil multiple times on my cheek when I can easily use a brush over a Becca powder or cream compact highlighter, or even a liquid formulation. Besides, can we please avoid any kind of pencils in beauty boxes for the next millennium?  

Verdict and how to subscribe

While I can use five out of six products this month, I find the selection rather underwhelming for a birthday/anniversary box. True, there are three makeup products. But I should have liked to see something else instead of the pencil, and even the BB cream - maybe an eyeshadow instead. Or a mini-blush. Also, there are no full-sized products at all this month. Come on, it's the birthday month! One full-sized product and no repetition or pencils would have made this box really stand out.
The October 2016 LookFantastic beauty box is the LF Pamper Box and contains a Laura Geller lip pencil, and five other products. LookFantastic ships worldwide tracked. You can order a beauty box here. Long-term subscriptions cost just £11.25 a month while individual boxes cost £15.
Also, do pre-order their Advent Calendar for 2016 here. Check out my review of the 2015 Advent Calendar and you'll know why - this year's edition promises to be even "bigger and better"!
