April 2015 Glossybox

Another Glossybox down. I actually really love this months 'The Iconic Edit' box and the theme and I can really see how all of the products tie in together. Well done Glossybox! There were four designs to collect this month, I got the blue one but they're all lovely I think!

Lord & Berry Lipstick Pencil in Kiss - Full Size £10
This was the first product I saw and is described as the 'perfect Marilyn red'. I've never owned a pencil style lipstick and I really like the concept, you can line your lips and fill them in all at once! This is such a lovely vibrant colour, I can imagine wearing this in the summer. I have been lightly dabbing this onto my lips and blending it out so its a bit lighter then adding gloss on top and I've been loving the colour. This is pretty long lasting too and doesn't dry out the lips as the pencil is creamy and soft.

Astral Original Face and Body Moisturiser - Full Size £3.89
I opened this up and saw the bright white creamy formula. It smells like a nicer version of Sudocrem, but isn't as thick. Apparently this has been a firm favourite with Hollywood Stars since the 1950's. This can also be used to remove makeup. I have smeared this on my face and then wiped off with cotton pads and it does seem to get everything off  and I do love a multi-purpose cream. I'm not sure I would repurchase this but I definitely enjoyed using it for a change to my usual lotion.

Pop Beauty Kajal Eyeliner Pen - Full Size £6.50
This pencil is nice and great for creating the iconic cat eye look. One end has a smudger for a smokey eye look. This transfers on the waterline as a sooty grey colour but is buildable to create a darker look. The pencil is soft and glides on nicely without dragging the skin. I can't personally use pencils on my upper lash line as I always seem to make a mess but for a smokey eye this works really well.

Color Club Barely There Nail Polish - Full Size £4.10
I love nude nails, especially as I'm not really supposed to wear nail varnish in my job so a nude nail is virtually undetectable but still makes me feel like I've put the effort in. It's also a colour which compliments any skin tone. I put 2 coats of this on and a topcoat and the colour lasted quite well which was nice.

IDC Body Lotion - Full Size £3.59
This lavender body lotion is actually really nice and I am glad I received this one as I'm not the biggest fan of rose scented things. This absorbs into the skin quickly and leaves my skin soft and hydrated and the smell lingers for a few hours after. The scent really reminds me of summer and the smell of my skin afterwards reminds me of being on the beach! I don't know why! I think I would buy this again as it's pretty good value and a lovely product.

 Please let me know what you got in your boxes, I love reading other people's Glossybox reviews!
