I like make-up that’s been edited to make life as easy as possible, so I’m a fan of “look in a box” type products which includes this Sunkissed by Lucy box of goodies, called Get the Look: Natural Glamour. As the names suggests, Sunkissed tend to lean towards creating looks that sit well alongside a holiday glow, and consequently favour shades of brown that enhance and compliment a tan.
The Get the Look: Natural Glamour box contains nine products and one double-ended applicator, all of which are housed inside a book-style box that opens up to display the products on one side and a guide to application on the other side. Annoyingly the powder products don’t come out, meaning you have to keep them in the box which is extremely annoying! It’s very much a mixed back of products with some being rather rubbish, but a few are surprisingly good.
I’d say the best of the box are the powders, of which there are three eyeshadows and two face powders. The blusher in particular is lovely; it contains just enough pink to give that slightly flushed/tanned look and if I can buy this individually in time for next summer then I think I will. The bronzer isn’t as horrendously sparkly as it looks in the pan, and instead it gives a gentle glow.
The lipstick is a fairly bright red which to me just doesn’t work alongside the rest of the look – I would’ve put a nude or pink lipgloss or very balmy lipstick in instead. Also, whilst the lipstick feels lovely and hydrating at first, it became very dry very quickly. The mascara is a real non-item that doesn’t add much to lashes at all, the kohl pencil is too dry for any real use and the brush is as terrible as you’d expect. The last great product of the set is the liner which is a real surprise! It’s so easy to use, provides an easy, slender line that can be built-up, plus the payoff is a dense, shiny black. This set is £11.99 which really isn’t too bad for what you get – yes some of it is rubbish, but for the few great products it still works out at relatively decent value; it’s just a real shame you can’t remove the powders!
