It’s been a few months since my last box, I was once again starting to stockpile products that were never getting used and I was getting disappointed in the boxes which at the end of the day was a complete waste of money.
I decided the GlossyBox April box was a must for me because it was my kind of box. For anyone who reads my posts regularly then you know I love the stars and looks of the past. I also can’t say no to red lipstick and black winged eyeliner. The theme of the box is Iconic as in the names Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. The glamorous movie stars that a lot of girls strive to be in their own way.
I couldn’t wait to recieve this box and wow look at it, already a big smile on my face before I even get to the contents. So here are the contents of this wonderful box:
Lord & Berry Lipstick Pencil : Kiss
A beautiful red lipstick pencil described as the perfect Marilyn red. A modern take on the classic pillar box red, this colour is just what you need for spring (and all year) in pencil form. The pencil form provides easier application as well as the formula been long-lasting with a matte finish. If you want a glossy finish just add a dab of lip balm. A full size product worth £10 and it slips easily into your bag.
Astral Original Face and Body Moisturiser
A firm favourite amongst make up artists and stars since its creation in the 1950s, this rich moisturising cream is versatile and perfect no matter what your age. It can even be used as a make up remover!. At £3.89 per 200ml it’s not the most expensive product in the box but it’s definitely worth knowing about.
POP Beauty Kajal Eyeliner Pencil
I love my eyeliner and I’m looking forward to giving this a try. A pencil that makes creating that iconic cat eye even easier thanks to the sooty black pencil one end and the sponge applicator the other to create that flick. Want a smokier look just keep blending. Full size product worth £6.50.
Color Club Nail Polish : Barely There
As a rule I hate getting nail varnish, it’s never red in the boxes I get and that’s my favourite nail varnish colour but I can actually say I’m happy this time. I love nude nails as long as the colour works and it doesn’t look patchy. The nail vanish is perfect and is going to be one of my firm favourites when I need a change from red. Very sophisticated and glossy. Another full size product worth £4.10.
Nougat London : Soothing Bath Pearls
Wow these have scented the entire box and the smell is beautiful. An intoxicating, soothing aroma of Fig and Pink Cedar. I’ve just used my last Lush Bath Bomb so this is what’s going in my bath tonight. It’s a new launcher product for £6 per 35ml.
Overall I love this box, it doesn’t add up to a lot but I think i got my money’s worth and I love all the products. Couldn’t be happier. Look out for the reviews
