Glossybox UK April 2018 Review
Hello, my lovelies. So it’s in, the April UK Glossybox has arrived.
This months theme is dedicated to all things nostalgia, taking inspiration from all things past. This months box definitely features more makeup than past boxes; with all the items I received being cosmetics apart from one.
Glossybox is a beauty subscription box, which is £10 a month, plus P&P. You will receive 5 beauty products and is an awesome way to discover new brands.
I have a 20% off your first box discount, which you can redeem by entering code LOUISE-RJF at checkout. To find out a bit more about Glossybox or to subscribe, shop my Instagram HERE.
So, whats in this months box?
Carmex, Strawberry lip balm, full-size, RRP, £2.79. We all know what this is. This is the only product that has ever worked on my chapped lips. I must admit, I keep a stock of these, but another to the collection will always come in handy.
Affect Cosmetics, Matte Effect Translucent Setting Powder, RRP, £9.35. New to the setting powder family is Rice Powder, a combination of mica and rice starch to give a perfect matte finish.
Eyeko London, Fat Liquid Eyeliner, RRP, £16. Bringing back bold lines from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, inspired by the looks of Brigitte Bardot and Twigy, this little liquid eyeliner is set to deliver some serious winged effect punch.
Modellauncher Cosmetics, Safari Bronzer, RRP, £20. Bringing back the 90’s with a leopard print bronzer, this talc free, mineral-enriched bronzer is versatile for every complexion.
Karl Lagerfeld, Baked Blush, RRP, not given Glossybox exclusive. A natural blush in the shade Light Beige, this is a far cry from the bold blush looks of the 80’s. Delivering a sheer radiance that lasts all day.
And that’s this months box guys and gals.
My thoughts. Given that this box focuses on nostalgia, I don’t think Glossybox quite nailed this one. I would have perhaps liked to have seen some products that really took us back to the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s; and filled this box with items to achieve a look from decades past.
A nice selection of products, but nothing has really wowed me. Ok, another setting powder to add to my collection but it’s quite boring. The Karl Lagerfeld blush is just massively underwhelming and I will probably give this away, the formulation isn’t good either, I’ve seen better from drugstore brands, such as ELF and Revolution.
I will, of course, give these products a fair try and as always, if I do really enjoy using any of these products they will get a feature up on my blog at a later date.
I hope you have enjoyed this review, a little click on my subscribe button would make me super happy.
