Inside April’s GlossyBox 2013

REVIEW | MAKEUP – Prints and a Pearl.

There’s been a serious lack of Glossy Box* reviews on my blog lately, why? well I’ve either been disappointed or items have broke making for rubbish pics and miserable text. This months box was a pleasant surprise starting with the beautiful packaging designed by Pearl Lowe. The collaboration is just what the Glossy Box needed and inside there’s an interview with the beauty herself.

Inside

Illamasqua Medium Pencil
This pencil can be used on the eyes, face and lips! I have 2 already and they’re amazing for creating cut creases or sharp lips.I received a full size Elate which is a bright white and I used on my Perry tutorial.
£13


Essie Nail Polish – Cute as a button

I love Essie nail polishes and this colour is perfect for teaming with summer clothing. In the video I couldn’t think of the colour but I’d say it’s a coral pink. It has the peachy tones but is also very pink.
£7.99

NIP & FAB – Pistachio
This cream relived the dry patches on my arms but the smell wasn’t great, too sweet and wore to a musty smell which is not the one! I was impressed by the size though.
50ml
200ml £9.95

Crabtree and Evelyn – Somerset Meadow Hand Therapy
This brand new hand cream isn’t available on-line or in stores yet but will be landing the 29th April. This smells divine and I have been using it every night and I have seen an improvement in the appearance of the skin on the backs of my hands.
100g £14

Yves Rocher France – So Elixir Purple Eau de Parfum

In the video I described this as floral with a warming scent and looking at the fragrance list I can see why I said that. It contains Patchouli (floral) and Vetiver a warm woody scent. Vetiver and Oud are my favourite scents for evening perfume so this is definitely a keeper.
50ml £44
