Glossy Box April 2013

Model Co Cheek & Lip Tint Swatch!

So, it’s that time of the month again!

This month’s box was designed by Pearl Lowe and is a lovely floral pattern; I have already recycled it to hold all the most used products on my dresser! There was quite a good selection of products in this month’s box which I felt were all very summer based, just what you want with all this lovely weather we are having!

The smell of this product is probably the best thing about it, a very over powering coconut smell that reminds me of putting on after-sun on holiday, lovely! A light formula, but quite oily on application, so not for me on this basis!

This looks like it could be an amazing little holiday product for somebody out there, a tinted moisturiser with SPF, so simple for a day in the sun – but yet again, way too oily for me!

To be perfectly honest, I have not really divulged into the world of cheek & lip products, but this has put me off even more! Can you remember that thick lip gloss that you used to get in Sugar or Mizz magazine when you were younger? Here it is, re-packaged! This is the only thing I could compare it to, as you can see the product is SO thick it is just impossible to work with! …also the stain it leaves is as if you have squashed a blackberry into your skin. 0/10.

I love it when Glossybox give a decent sized perfume sample, in a cute little bottle that you can actually get a few wears out of! This scent is super strong, and maybe more of a mature smell, but I love it all the same!

Last but definitely not least is the full size Essie nail varnish. Glossybox described this as their star product this month, and I certainly agree! Both me and Alice have been dying to try this brand out and here is my chance!  A pastel, summery and long-lasting colour, I love it!

If you are still debating with the thought of subscribing to Glossybox, then boxes like this one should be a reason why you want to, full-size products from well-known names, plus it always feel like I’m getting the products for free!

What did you get in your box?
