April Glossybox

Sunday, 15 April 2018

April's Glossybox was all about nostalgia. Taking us back to beauty trends from previous decades and bringing them back into 2018. I must admit, I was pretty flippin' excited about this one when I unwrapped it! Ready to take a peek?


First up is the Affect Translucent Loose Rice Powder. I know, right, what on earth is rice powder?! Apparently it is the new banana powder (which I never really bought into), and is the hot new powder for mattifying and setting your make-up. In all honesty, I normally hate loose powders. They're too messy, get all over my clothes, basically I'm far too clumsy with them. But I've actually really enjoyed using this, you only need a tiny bit but it sets my foundation perfectly!

I also received a special edition angled Glossybox brush, with their signature pink handle. I love angled brushes for doing my eyebrows, and you can never have too many in your collection so this will definitely come in handy!


It's rare that you find shower products in a Glossybox, so I was pretty surprised to unwrap this Imperial Leather Foamburst body wash! But I'm in LOVE. It's in a limited edition Unicorn Marshmallow scent, and smells like strawberry Angel Delight - winner! It comes out as a foam (obviously) and so lathers up so well, and leaves your skin super soft! I've definitely found a new favourite here.


Anyone else remember the striking eyes and huge liner flicks of years gone by? Me neither. BUT Glossybox is bringing them back with the Eyeko London Fat Liquid Liner. I'm usually more of a gel liner kinda gal, but I REALLY love this liner. It's as easy as using a felt-tip pen, blacker than black and makes winged liner an absolute doddle. I think I'll definitely be looking into repurchasing this one!


Last but not least is this beautiful little blusher from Model + Co. This is the Karl Lagerfield special edition, and comes in the shade Light Beige, which is a beautiful rose-gold colour - flattering on all skin types and just swoon-worthy to be honest. It isn't the most pigmented blush I've ever used, but it gives just enough of a subtle pop of colour for a natural, dewy look which is perfect for me!

Aaah Glossybox, you've done it again! I'm currently obsessed with all of the products from this month's box, and I already can't to see what next month brings!

Love,
Sian xo

  1. I've never heard of rice or banana powder to be totally honest with you, haha! They both sound kinda odd. Although I do like loose powders but they can be awfully messy. Great post! This looks like a fab box :)

    1. I really do - I've had Glossyboxes for about two and a half years now and I love them. They're about £13 a month inc p&p - but I rarely ever have to buy moisturisers, blushers etc. because they come so frequently in the boxes! xo

  7. I can't live without a loose powder for my super greasy face! Do you think glossybox is worth the cost? Like do you use all the stuff they give you until it's gone?
