Topbox Review - May 2013 - Beauty Subscription Box
What is it? TopboxOnce again Topbox impressed the heck out of me with their super efficient shipping. Box shipped late on May 9th, tracking info was e-mail the morning of May 10th and the tube was in my mail box in late afternoon on the same day. It doesn't get any faster than that!
How Much? $12 per month, shipping included
What’s in it? 4 deluxe beauty samples
For May, Topbox offered 5 Prive box choices (Coolway Hair, MaskerAide, PretendTAN, February Favourites & Elizabeth Arden) plus the regular Topbox. I opted to "wish" for the MaskerAide box. Unfortunately I didn't get that one and ended up getting the regular Topbox. It still has some great products so I'm happy regardless. Let's take a look...
Cuccio Colour Nail Lacquer in "So So Sofia"
Triple pigmented colour, DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde FREE, High Shine Professional Nail Colours. Full size ($10)
I have SO many polishes courtesy of Julep so I'm not sure I will be keeping this one. It is a nice neutral shade though so it might be good to have in my collection.
Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional
PRO Balm to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines. Full size: $34 for 22ml
Sample size is 7.5ml, $11.59 value
I received another of this sample as part of the Fab & Free promo from Murale but I have yet to use it. I'm really excited to try it though. I have heard good things.
Lise Watier Haute Couleur High Coverage Lip Lacquer in "Stylista" (Canadian Brand)
Intense Colour, Extreme Shine, Long-Lasting. Full size: $23 for 6ml
Sample size is 1.5ml, $5.75 value
I don't think this is my colour so I will probably be passing this on to my sister or a friend.
Yaby Eye Shadow Refill in "Coco Powder" (Canadian Brand)
Highly pigmented eye shadow with super smooth texture that blends effortlessly.
15.5mm eye shadow refill. Full size, value $3.15.
This shade is from the Yaby Cosmetics "Dramatically Neutral" pallet collection. I like this neutral colour and I use brown shades a fair bit so I will probably get use out of this product. I need to get a magnetic pallet to hold it though!
All totalled my May Topbox has an estimated value of $30.49. I paid $13.44 with tax. I like the variety of products and I love that the box included so many cosmetics this month, since last month included only beauty products.
Did you get a Topbox this month? Which one did you get?
