Whoop whoop! The April Glossybox has dropped and what a fabulous box it is this month with a nod to nostalgia from the 50’s Bridget Bardot cat eye, the 80’s blush with a modern spin to the 90’s bold lip look. This month’s box has got it all and what’s even better is that ALL 5 products are full sized and one is a new pre-launch!
So what’s in the box…As in every box you receive a magazine style card telling you a little bit about each product (boxes vary so it also shows you what products other people got depending on your skin type/colour and hair type/colour etc etc) It also highlight’s what’s in next months with a little sneak peek of one of the main products that it will include. Anyway back to the current box…
MDMflow Liquid Matte in shade Retro £19 – on first look the packaging has a luxurious look and feels weighty. The colour looks like the perfect pink nude for me and reminds me of a S&G gloss I used to wear and get some many compliments. I’ve worn it for a full day and eaten lunch with it on and impressed with it’s staying power. So far so good, although I will add it felt slightly sticky after I topped it up – but that could be the beeswax and vitamin E to prevent your lips drying out.
Eyeko FAT Liquid Eyeliner in Black £16 – I haven’t tried it yet, it’s a chunky pen with a precision nib that looks easy to use. It’s smudge proof – when I swatched it on the back of my hand it felt like it glided on smoothly, so should give a nice fluid finish on the lids. Now I just need to practice my Bardot cat eye.
Botanics All Bright Micellar Cleansing Solution £5.49 – This looks lovely, I don’t rely on micellar Waters as part of cleansing routine however, they are handy to have for emergency make-up fixes or if on a one off you are feeling lazy and use it before bed to remove makeup. My tip would be to not let it dry on your skin but to pat your skin dry before you add a serum, and oil or a moisturiser.
MODELco x Karl Lagerfeld Baked Blush in Light Beige £tbc – This looks exciting, I’m loving the Karl Lagerfeld silhouette on the packaging. It’s not been released yet so it’s a pre-launch for Glossybox. The colour looks great and very wearable. I’m looking forward to trying it for a sheer natural radiant glow.
Affect Cosmetics Matt Transparent Loose Rice Powder £9.35 – The perfect makeup setter absorbing oil and setting foundation without looking cakey. It’s the new Banana Powder. I don’t normally use this kind of product but use a more traditional pressed powder to set my base. I’m hoping this changes everything and transforms my makeup (pic is the bottom of the pot)
So there you are, a little box reveal from me. I Love Love Love this April Glossybox!
