GlossyBox Unboxing April 2014

Hey guys,

So seeing as I'm stopping the whole youtube thing I decided that I would move one of my favourite videos to film onto my blog.
I love glossybox for the fact that I get to try brands out that I normally wouldn't.
Glossybox is a £10 a month subscription service that offers deluxe samples and fullsizes of either drugstore or highend make up.
I am always please with Glossybox and love the boxes themselves I normally re-purpose them into storage containers for my make up.

So lets get into this months box lets start with the box itself. I got the peachy shade box there was four different colours all with Marilyn Monroe on the front this months box was curated around the 50's era of make up.

How beautiful is the top of this box. I cannot wait to fully display it.
When you open the box you get a few little cards and underneath is the traditional glossybox tissue paper wrapped with a ribbon in a bow and the glossybox sticker. The card has all the information you need about the products inside and their prices. I love this part of the box because it makes it feel like a present.

As you unwrap it you get to all the products 5 each month and sometimes nearer christmas we get a bonus gift or two thrown in. This feburary we got love hearts.

This month we got 4 fullsixe products and one travelsize I love that we don't only get make up products but also bath and body.

This month we got a fullsize lord and berry lip crayon in Kiss which is like a traditional Marilyn Monroe sort of lip colour worth £10.
 Also we got an astral original face and body moisturiser. Retails for £3.89 for 200ml we got 50ml which is about 97p
Then we have the popbeauty Kajal Eyeliner pencil in black £6.50
The colourclub nail laquer in barely there retails for £4.10. I currenty am wearing it and loving how sophisticated it makes my nails look such an elegant colour.
Last but not least we got the Nougat London soothing bathpers that retail for £6.

Overall the boxes value is £27.57 which is excellent value for a box that only costs £10. I have been eyeing up a lord and berry pencil for ages I am very excited to have one in my collection I did a few upclose swatches of the eyeliner and the lippencil so you could see how pigmented they are.

I'm yet to try out any of the products but maybe they'll land themselves into my month favourites.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post I'll be uploading very soon
