So, without further ado, let’s take a look at what other treasures they have bestowed upon us. Hooray.
4.Luxie 121 &141 Eye Makeup Brushes, Retail: £24 (4 Piece Set), www.lookfantastic.com
Want to astound people with your eye makeup abilities? Luxie’s ergonomically designed brushes enable flawless application that is so precise you will look like a pro. I adore these brushes due to the fact that they not only do an amazing job, but they feel unbelievably soft. Happy pamper days. Thank you Look Fantastic and Luxie for your sheer genius.
5.Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream SPF50 (30ml), Retail: £85 (50ml), www.lookfantastic.com
Elemis has been on the scene for some time – and boy, they have accomplished a lot. their Pro-Collagen formulations are loaded with marine and plant actives that specifically target and treat fine lines and wrinkles. This day cream provides a significant improvement to the texture of skin. The result is a complexion that is more plump, smooth and younger-looking. However, maintaining the result requires constant application. Beauty does come at a cost – unless, of course, you have the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar. Yay!
6.Illamasqua Nude Collection Lip Liner – Raw, Retail: £16, www.lookfantastic.com
Illamasqua is a brand to look out for – they are fast-becoming a global sensation for creating amazing products. This liner is so creamy and easy to blend. I love to use it as a liner, then apply it directly to my entire lips. It is so good, that often, I do not need to follow with a lipstick. If you haven’t tried out Illamasqua yet, I recommend you put it on your to-do list. You won’t regret.
7.Rituals Ritual of Ayurveda Natural Dry Oil For Hair & Body (50ml), Retail: £19.50 (100ml), www.lookfantastic.com
Inside this gorgeously designed bottle is a potion that works so well you would be forgiven for wondering if it is indeed magical! Should you be searching for something that boasts superior hydrating and softening powers – duh, yeah – then this 100% natural and vegan-friendly oil is where it’s at!
Remarkably, it hasn’t been sourced from some witch’s coven. However, its creation has been drawn from ancient Ayurvedic traditions, and wow! Combining a perfect blend of sweet almond oil and basil, the treatment nourishes and softens the hair and skin with equal efficacy. Expect, pampered, rejuvenated skin and shiny, silky locks. Better yet, the rituals formula literally smells like Christmas! Gorgeous.
8.Philip Kingsley Elasticizer (40ml). Retail: £67 (500ml), www.lookfantastic.com
If your hair is new to the incredible experience of Philip Kingsley, this is a great opportunity to enjoy some seriously glorious locks and then add the 500ml bottle to the top of your Christmas list. The treatment is ideal for dry and damaged hair that is need of some serious TLC, as well as aiding the vitality of coloured hair.
The Elasticizer supercharges strands and cuticles with a surge of hydration and nourishment and is noticeable after just one application. I absolutely love the transformation. From hair that looks like I’ve pulled some straw from a hay bale and fashioned a wig, to tresses that exude bounce, health and shine – Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer is a true hero product.
