It's time for the latest Glossybox review and this month it's all about Hollywood glamour. I absolutely loved the theme this month, you can't beat the beauty classics and I automatically was envisaging bright red lips and smoky eyes and I think Glossybox were definitely on the same wavelength as me this month!
The box itself had a Hollywood makeover this month and I received the beautiful yellow box, very fresh and Spring like with a gorgeous image of Marilyn on the front, very glam.
Love this quote!
We had a spoiler earlier this month so I did already knew that I was going to receive a bright red lip pencil, Lord & Berry in shade Kiss ((full size received RRP £10.00), this is a brand I keep hearing more and more about, I think the packaging is pretty similar to Bobbi Brown so very slick and upmarket. This colour definitely has Hollywood glamour written all over it, a bright cherry red, perfectly Marilyn. I'm looking forward to wearing this, I'll just have to make sure I have a decent outfit to go with it!
Next item I looked at is an all time staple and classic moisturiser, Astral Original Face & Body Moisturiser (50ml tub received, RRP £3.89 for full size 200ml), this rich moisturising cream apparently was a favourite amongst the Hollywood stars and was created in the 1950's so it's definitely secured its place in the market. Not only is at a moisturiser but it can also be used to remove makeup so quite a versatile little product!
I then checked out the POP Beauty Kajal Liner Pen in Sooty Black (full size received RRP £6.50), so I know Glossybox loves to send out eyeliner's but in a Hollywood edit I wouldn't expect any less! This is described as a pen but it's a pencil and I love the fact that it comes with a smudger, it always really annoys me when liners don't have a smudger included as to achieve a decent smoky eye you need one! This is a great item to receive.
Fourth item is a nude nail polish, Colour Club Barely There Polish (full size received RRP £4.10), slightly random price and not a brand I'm familiar with, it's a niceish colour, not sure I'll wear it all the time but I'll give it a go.
Final item received was a very pretty and feminine shower gel, IDC Scented Garden Country Rose (100ml received RRP £3.59), this smells beautiful, very delicate and pretty. Very iconic scent of the era apparently! Always nice to received a shower gel, very handy.
So that's the April box, I think Glossybox have captured the era perfectly and this is one of the best boxes received since the beginning of the year, I will use every item and although some of the brands are still unfamiliar it is a great way of introducing less heard of brands.
What do you think if this months box? Did Glossybox get it right?
