The 4.5* April Glossybox

By  | 

The April Glossybox really upped the game this month. And it did actually arrive in the month of April, but only just barely.

There was a generous, but still travel size, bottle of Aqua Spa Relax Body Creme that tackles both dry skin and signs of aging with “Marine Youth Complex.” And a gently scented bottle of Caldrea Body Wash with angelica root and linden flower extracts.

My two favorites were the Bellapierre Super Gloss in Vanilla Pink (I can never have too much lip gloss) and the Lasplash Eyeshadow Sealer/Base. The gloss is the perfect color — a natural pink tan with just enough touch of orange that it doesn’t make your lips look unnaturally rosy. The eyeshadow sealer is always a plus for long trips or days when most of my makeup has been absorbed by my face before it’s over.

And then there’s the “E” for effort and why I docked the box a half star. It’s an amazing full size Ciate London paint pot. It looks really rich and like the polish would go on smoothly with a nice shine. The bottle on my explanation card was a lovely pearl color. Too bad they gave me bright green. Boooo…

Anyone with a more normal color want to swap? 🙂

    Green is a really hard nail color to wear. Oh well, maybe keep it for Halloween.

    I know some people can pull it off, but you’d think for a box like this they’d stick to more popular colors that most people would like!

    I got the green one also. Wore it for a few days. The quality and longevity of the wear would convince me to buy ciate. The color got attention, but in a “oh, I’ve never seen a nail polish that color before” kind of way… Next month is a Bergdorf box…Can’t wait for that.

    Oh my gosh, that is such a gorgeous green color!!! I got the “mojito” green but I would prefer this green instead. I think you’re so lucky to have gotten that color. :p
