Glossy Box: April 2018 - Nostalgic Box

Tuesday, April 17, 2018
I have been lucky enough to review quite a few subscription boxes on my blog from a range of brands but I also review boxes on the All Subscription Boxes website. I have numerous favourite boxes, however my top subscription boxes have to include WootBox, LookFantastic, Craftiosity and obviously, GlossyBox.

*GlossyBox April 2018 (£10 per month + £3.25 P&P)
When I first started blogging I bought GlossyBox boxes every month and loved receiving them so I'm glad to be working with the lovely people over at GlossyBox now! Within each box you will receive five beauty products are various sizes from a wide range of brands. This months box contains products from Eyeko London, Carmex, Affect Cosmetics, Model Launcher and Model Co, a few of which I've tried and a couple of others that I haven't heard of before.
Model Launcher Safari Bronzer (£20 - full size included) 
The first product is from a brand that I haven't heard of before, Model Launcher and it's a full size item! The bronzer is talc free, mineral free and waterproof, the latter is very interesting. I adore the cute safari, animal print design of the bronzer! It does contain glitter which is something I don't like in bronzers but thankfully it isn't very visible on the skin; however it does leave a gorgeous warm glow!

Model Co + Karl Lagerfeld Baked Blush - Rose Beige
Next up is a very exciting product for a few reasons, firstly it's a collaboration with Model Co and Karl Lagerfeld, the shade is stunning and lastly, it's a Glossybox early exclusive product and the launch date is yet to be revealed! The blush is a gorgeous metallic rose shade that I've actually been using as a beautiful spring-like all over the lid shade.
Eyeko London Fat Liquid Eyeliner - Black (£16 - full size included)
The theme of this box is 'nostalgia' and for me there are quite a few makeup items that marked growing up milestones in the teenage years and one of them is black liquid eyeliner, along with dream matte mousse foundation, unbranded glittery eyeshadows, blue mascara and hair mascara...I loved black eyeliner in pencil and liquid form growing up and I dread to think what it looked like!

I've tried a few products from Eyeko London so I'm glad to try another item and this one is perfect. I've wanted to start wearing liquid eyeliner again recently so this is a well timed addition to the April box. Despite the chunky marker style applicator, it's actually fairly easy to get a thin line and wing.

*Carmex Strawberry Lip Balm (£2.79 - full size included)
Another nostalgic item is flavoured lip balm and while I was a Chapstick and Lipsmackers kind of girl, I did also like Carmex balms. Berry flavoured lip balms were always my favourites in the late 90's and it's something I always had in my school bag!
*Affect Cosmetics Transparent Loose Rice Powder (£9.35, 10g - full size included)
Last but not least is an ideal product for this time of the year as my skin is becoming a little oily rather than it's usual very dry self during the winter months. I've been using my Essence Fixing Powder but it's almost come to an end - this powder seems like a great replacement. The powder contains a combination of rice starch and mica which gives a matte finish that instantly absorbs oil. I definitely prefer pressed powders but I'll still get so much use out of this loose powder.

Overall, I'm really happy with this months box, mainly because it contains so many makeup items, unlike other beauty subscription boxes which are mainly skincare based (too heavily skincare based). My favourite items have to include the beautiful blush and the Eyeko London eyeliner.
