April Glossybox Review | The Iconic Hollywood Edition

Hey beaut's!

So its that time again... Glossybox time!!! This month I was sooooo excited to receive my box, we all knew it was going to be an Iconic Hollywood themed box and that just screams to me elegant and timeless beauty. Glossybox used Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn as their inspiration for the contents of our boxes and their makeup is something Ive always been in awe of, so I couldn't wait to receive some beauty products to help me create their iconic looks. The collectors edition box actually came in four different pastel shades, I got the mint green version which I love and all the boxes came with a cute quote written inside the lid which I think was a nice touch. I must admit the contents this month wasn't as amazing as previous boxes I've had but I'll certainly get use out of most of the products so it's not all bad.

 Anywhoo lets see what I received inside my April Iconic Hollywood Glossybox...
Lord & Berry Lipstick Pencil in Kiss | Full Size | £10.00
Firstly we have the Lord & Berry Lipstick Crayon in Kiss, this is something that everyone received in their boxes this month and really helps achieve that classic red lip that Marilyn Monroe always rocked. 

POP Beauty Kajal Eyeliner Pen in Sooty Black | Full Size | £6.50 
Next we have a Kajal eyeliner pencil by POP Beauty, I must admit I do love a good black eyeliner for the waterline so I'll definitely be using this up. As well as using this eye pencil on the water liner you can also use it to create that Elizabeth Taylor iconic cat eye on your upper lash line and you can use the little smudger to create a smouldering smokey eye, ohhh I do love a good multi use product.

Color Club Nail Polish in Barely There | Full Size | £4.50 
Nude nails are a key trend for this Spring so it seems quite fitting that I got one in my box. I must admit I've never been a huge fan of nude nail polish on my nails personally but it will come in handy for any nail art I may do in the future when I need something nude.

Astral Original Face and Body Moisturiser | Sample | £2.64 for 200ml
The first sample in my box this month was this little pot of Astral. Astral is a versatile rich moisturising cream that's been a firm favourite amongst Hollywood stars and makeup artists since the 1950's, yup this little beauty has been around for yonkssss! I actually remember my mum using this when I was younger and she loved it so hopefully I will too he he.

IDC Scented Garden (Warm Lavender) Body Lotion | Sample | €4.98 for 780ml
And lastly my second sample product this month is a luxury body lotion from IDC Institute, unfortunately I got the Warm Lavender scent which I hate so I'll be passing this on to my Mum or a friend so this is a little bit of a let down product for me.


 What did you think of this month's box beaut's?? I'd love to know.

  1. I did a post on this month's GlossyBox yesterday - we got the same products (apart from I got rose instead of lavender for my IDC sample.) I agree that this month's box definitely didn't blow me away with its content - but stuff such as the black eyeliner etc are super useful!

    I think the box itself is one of my favourite parts of this month's offerings - it's so pretty.
