For those of you not aware of the concept, Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription box containing 5 hand picked beauty samples wrapped in a signature pink box.
Some of these samples may actually be full size products.
This month Glossybox is paying homage to beauty and Hollywood royalty.
There are four collectors' boxes featuring Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Rita Haywood and Marilyn Monroe.
Guess which one I had!

|April goodies: the box contained 3 full sized products and 2 sample products|
I was a bit underwhelmed by the contents of this box which I was particularly looking forward to.
The problem is that the size of this month's products don't really fill the box, even though the actual value of the box is £20.60 plus the value of the two samples.
However, given that the cost of each box is £10 plus packaging (£3.25), I don't think this box is as good value as the previous two I have received.
The box contained:-
|Lord & Berry Lipstick Pencil in Kiss - full size £10|
Long-lasting and softening, it has a matte finish. Lord & Berry are a boutique Italian fashion house based in Milan, whose philosophy is to turn make-up into a true fashion accessory.
They say their products are for women of all ages everywhere - without cultural or national borders.
Lord & Berry make-up is available at www.selfridges.com.
|POP Beauty Kajal Eyeliner Pen - Full Size £6.50|
The second full size product in this month's box is the POP Beauty Kajal eyeliner pen which Glossybox say is ideal for creating Elizabeth Taylor's iconic cat eye. (If only I could!).
The pencil has a smudger on the other end to help blend. POP has grown from having a cult following in London to having a worldwide fan base.
They aim to bring backstage secrets and make-up artistry to the street, bringing the essence of POP culture from the world of fashion, art and music.
|Color Club Barely There Nail Polish, Full Size £4.10|
|Darphin Exquisage Beauty Revealing Cream - Sample Size. Full size £65 for 50 ml|
|Nougat London's Soothing Bath Pearls - sample size - full size £6 for 35 ml|
One of Glossybox's new strengths is that they include discount codes, make-up how to leaflets and video tutorials.
The April tutorial video is certainly worth a watch.
Am I happy? Yes.
What the box lacks in content value is made up for by the support from Glossybox.
Everything arrived in pristine condition and was nicely packaged.
I'm looking forward to the May box and it will soon be time to decide whether to renew my subscription.
