When I heard about the theme Glossybox had prepared for April, I was beyond excited. I am obsessed with Hollywood`s old glamour, Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly being my ultimate beauty icons. I had high hopes for this box, mainly because Glossybox had some fantastic previous boxes. Sadly, this was not one of them.
The design of the box is spectacular. It features Marilyn and it makes you think you can achieve a small part of her timeless beauty. I mean, that`s the theme. So why did it go so wrong?
My favourite item from the box has to be the Lord&Berry Lipstick Pencil in Kiss. This is a stunning red and will look flattering on everyone. I swatched it a bit on my hand, it`s extremely pigmented and creamy. I am very curious to see how long it will last. This was a full-size product that retails at £ 10.
Another thing I liked was the Kajal Eyeliner Pen from POP Beauty. It`s double ended, on the other side you have a smudger which will help you create an easy smokey eye. I really want this product to work, I`ve been looking for a good eyeliner for a while. Again, this is a full-size product that costs £ 6.50.
You know by now, I love getting nail varnishes in my beauty boxes. And I love a good nude colour. But it`s Spring, I expected something more colourful. Or a red nail polishes would have been better with the theme, in my opinion. I will probably use it in the winter, though. It`s a full-size product and it costs £ 4.10
The last 2 products in the box were useless for me. One of them was a 50 ml pot from Astral, which is a bit ridiculous considering the full-size product is less than 4 pounds. I mean, I know we can`t get only full-size products, but at least, give a sample from a better brand. I don`t think celebrities used this cream, to be honest, and I fail to see the connexion with the theme. The last product that I got were soothing bath pearls. It`s a meh product for me, again I can`t see what this has to do with the Iconic theme.
To be honest, I am quite disappointed with this box. Considering the theme, they could have selected better products. I only really like the red pencil and maybe the kohl. I don`t know if anyone got different things in their box or not. Was I the only one not happy with this box? Let me know in the comments below.
