All Things Nostalgia: Glossybox April 2018


Look who has made a comeback on Pam Scalfi, the Glossybox! Glossybox has been a household name for a couple of years now; I last reviewed a box back in December 2015 and after 2 years and a bit, I am super excited to see what has changed and of course, all the goodies that come within it! Funnily enough, this box was designed to take us back and is dedicated to all things nostalgia (and I am definitely feeling those vibes). Inspired by generations past, yet bringing fresh twists on old classics, this box gives you staple beauty products for recreating iconic looks from the 60s, 70s, 80s or even the 90s (what a "rad" idea...what's that 90s enough?!). With 5 full-sized items, as soon as the box landed on my doorstep I was ready to dig in and now let me share with you what I think. Keep on reading if you are ready for a throwback like I am!


IMPERIAL LEATHER UNICORN MARSHMALLOW FOAMBURST | £3.15
Starting with my favourite item of the entire box, this body wash not only looks gorgeous in this totally funky bottle, it also smells incredibly delicious. I am a massive fan of candy-scented body washes, with my favourite of all time being Snow Fairy by Lush, but given I can't get my hands on that until the end of the year, this is a great sub! The gel turns into a creamy cloud and glides smoothly on my skin making it the perfect addition to my body care routine this summer.


GLOSSYBOX ANGLED BRUSH | £5.50
One can never have too many makeup brushes, especially when it is in such a pretty pink colour. Angled brushes are perfect to use on eyes and brows, and the firm bristles provide the exact precision I look for when creating eye looks. I love the fact this is a Glossybox exclusive, it is such a nice touch to the box!

EYEKO LONDON FAT LIQUID EYELINER | £16
What is a vintage eye look without a graphic eyeliner?! This very pigmented yet smudge proof eyeliner is perfect for big, bold 50s inspired lines; a look that never goes out of fashion. I wore this to work paired with a red lippie and I was impressed with how well it stayed on after 12 hours of wear. It is a little on the expensive side, but so far I think it is worth every penny and such a great and necessary addition to this month's theme.

KARL LAGERFELD + MODELCO BAKED BLUSH - LIGHT BEIGE | TBC
(Glossybox early exclusive)
Say hello to a baked blush that brightens, highlights and warms up a complexion with a healthy glow; this blush has it all! I always go for a blush with colour pigments, as I find it to deliver just the right amount of sheer natural radiance to my look, and this does just that. I've worn this as a blush, a highlighter swept on the high points of my face and even on my eyelids and that is what I call a versatile product. I'm excited to see what else this Karl and ModelCo collection will bring to the beauty scene, so look out for the launch date which is yet to be released.


AFFECT COSMETICS MATT EFFECT TRANSPARENT RICE POWDER | £9.35
Kudos to Glossybox for adding a product that works for every skin tone and type! This must be the item that really gives me all those throwback vibes; heck I remember when my grandma wore rice powder back in the day! Rice powder is essentially a mix of mica and rice starch, aiming to give a perfect matte finish (exactly what I need for my t-zone this summer). I applied this whilst my foundation was still wet with my beauty blender and I must say, it set my base very well without making it look cakey. Powder is our makeup's best friend and this has just become mine too!


So there you have it! All in all, I am really glad I said yes to trying the Glossybox again, it reignited that excitement of not knowing what you're getting and trying products I wouldn't have otherwise known about. Glossybox continues to deliver beauty at the right amount and I look forward to seeing what May will bring!

    I love angled brushes. I had one years back but a friend lost it and I still haven't replaced it. Need to get my hands on one.
