Glossybox - Iconic Hollywood EditionMonday, April 20, 2015
This month Glossybox takes us a step back in time and worships Hollywood beauty royalty. There are four collector's edition boxes with different coloured bottoms and a Marilyn Monroe print on the cover. My box is a mint green and looking very pretty - definitely worth keeping.
The box contains 5 beauty products - 3 of them full size. The products are inspired by the silver screen stars whose elegant and timeless beauty is still as relevant as it was then.
The Lord & Berry Lipstick Pencil and POP Beauty Kajal Eyelines Pen are both essential to achieve a time-honoured look - a red lip and feline flick. Eyes and lips are the windows to the soul - when I am doing my make up, I like to concentrate on them the most. I am glad Glossybox chose these classic staples for this month.
Lord & Berry Lipstick Pencil in Kiss is the perfect Marilyn red. It's in pencil form which makes the application really easy and because it has the matte finish, it can be glossed up with lip gloss or lip balm. I am a big fan of reds and I can see myself using this a lot. Red is the perfect colour to brighten up this spring season. Full size £10.
POP Beauty Kajal Eyeliner Pen is the perfect tool to create Elizabeth Taylor's iconic cat eye. This sooty black kohl pencil has a matte finish and is easily blendable with included smudger. I am not a frequent eyeliner user so I will probably give this away. Full size £6.50
Color Club Barely There Nail Polish is a beautiful creamy shade. Nude is one of my favourite colours and it suits with every outfit. Manufactured and shipped from New York, this brand is fashion forwarded and always growing. I have a couple of different shades from this brand and I am really happy to add another colour to my collection. Full size £4.10
The last two are sample size products from IDC and Astral Original. It's been ages since Glossybox included a body moisturiser and I am even more excited as there is two of them!
IDC Body Lotion is a quickly absorbing, hydrating and nourishing, leaving the skin beautiful, silky soft and delicately scented. It is inspired from our favourite Hollywood icons, who loved pampering the skin with aroma of lavender or rose. It is very scented and smells like a garden full of roses. 100ml £3.59
Astral Original Face and Body Moisturiser is a versatile, rich moisturising cream which has been a favourite amongst Hollywood stars since its creation in the 1950's. It suits for all ages, hydrates deeply and can be even used to remove make up. I have sensitive skin so I probably won't be using it on my face. As it is also a body moisturiser and in perfect sample/travel size it would be essential to carry around in a bag to fight against dry skin. £3.89 for 200ml, mine is 50ml.
Aprils box has been one of my favourites so far. I am very happy with all of the products and Glossybox nailed it this month. The value of the box is about £30, which is a good amount to pay for 5 small size products. I paid £10 + P&P and it was worth it!
