One of my favourite make up brands is Maybelline and during the festive period they released a collection of IT Look boxes exclusive to Superdrug I believe which are perfect gifts. During the Easter holidays they were reduced from £30 to £15. I picked up Downtown Vamp which will be reviewed in this post and also the Uptown Girl box which will be in a future post.
First of all the box cover reveals the look you can create and the inside of the box also has a tutorial to follow but this is also available on YouTube!
I love that the tutorial is included but of course you can create your own look with the fabulous products included.
All the products above are included and can be kept neatly in the tray if you don’t wish to throw away the box.
You get the following:
- Lash Sensational (Intense Black) £7.99
- Master Shape Brow (Soft Brown) £2.99
- Master Ink Liner £4.99
- Baby Skin Primer £7.99
- Face Studio Blush 60 (Cosmopolitan) £4.49
- Color Sensational Lipstick (Siren in Scarlet) £6.99
- ColorShow Nail Polish (Blackout) £3.99
Total worth: £39.43
The box is worth getting if you have it on offer, I doubt I’d actually pay £30 for it, luckily for me I can use the soft brown brow pencil but unless you have brown hair it would be useless for you.
I absolutely love the lipstick provided, ive only worn it once but straightaway fell in love, its durable and lasts for hours! Even when having a drink I found it didn’t budge which is always great news for lipstick wearers.
I know this post is quite photo heavy so i’ll end it with a final shot of the Cosmopolitan blush, at first I thought omg this shade is far too bright but actually if you only put a small amount on your brush then it comes out quite subtle and a lovely soft pink.
The only thing I don’t like about the blusher is the packaging, I find it quite awkward and fiddly to open due to having to lift and slide the lid about.
Overall im really pleased with the IT Look box and hope that Maybelline or any other brand for that matter offer more of these beauty boxes.
