Topbox - July 2016

Topbox is the only monthly subscription service that I am currently subscribed to. It's a nice alternative to Ipsy, although it is not as "customized", you still get a good combination of products every month. It's also super affordable, coming in at $13.54 for me in Ontario (including taxes - and it's free shipping!).

Each  month we are given the opportunity to wish for a prive box. What that is, is a box featuring a specific brand. First let's take a look at what our prive options were for July.

The picture is a little hard to read without it being super zoomed in, so I will just do a quick little list of what our choices were!

Curl Keeper Prive Topbox - includes: Ultimate Hold with Frizz Control Gel (x1) 30mL, Styling Cream, Tames Textured Hair (x2) 30mL, Leave-In Conditioner (x2) 33mL.

Delectable Prive Topbox - includes: Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream (x2) 60mL.

Matrix Prive Topbox - includes: Oil Wonders Micro-Oil Shampoo and Oil Conditioner (x4) 10mL, Egyptian Hibiscus (x3) 5mL.

MeMeMe Prive Topbox - includes: Enchanted Eyes Dual Ended Eye Wand - Woodland Smoke (full size x1), Cupid's Kiss Cheek and Lip Tint (x1) 12mL.

Mereadesso Prive Topbox - includes: Tinted All-in-One Moisturizer (x2) 12mL.

SeaRx Prive Topbox - includes: Birchsap Moisturizing Lotion, sample size (x12)

Tolan Prive Topbox - includes Age Defense Cream (x1) 15mL.

Tolan Prive Topbox - includes Foaming Facial Cleanser (x1) 50mL.

For July, I decided not to wish for a prive box. There was nothing that really stood out for me, and who really wants 12 sample sizes of a lotion? Not me, at least. So let's take a look at what I got in my July Topbox.

BellaPierre - Gel Lip Liner in Cinnamon
This was sent to all of the subscribers. Canada Post was announcing that they may strike, or there might be a lock out, so this was Topbox's way of saying thank you to the subscribers for not jumping ship. While I thought it was super awesome of them to do this (they really didn't have to) I am not a fan of this colour at all. On the box it looks like it could be a your lips but better shade, but the actual pencil colour is brown. On the bottom and the tip itself. I didn't swatch it because I hope I can trade it or sell it online.

BareMinerals - Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Rebel
This is a pretty pink gloss. The email I received from Topbox in place of the paper card they usually send out, says this was supposed to be a lipstick. So I'm not sure if some people got gloss and others got lipstick. I would have preferred this in a lipstick to be honest. The gloss is sticky. It has a strong minty scent, which I don't mind at all. It looks nice, but not something I will reach for all the time.

GlamGlow - FlashMud Brightening Treatment
I love GlamGlow products, especially the tinglexfoliant mud mask. This was described as a multi-targeted, multi-sensorial quick results brightening treatment for radiant, youthful-looking skin. I definitely have some brightening to do for my skin, so this is welcomed!

Revlon Professional - UniqOne Lotus Hair Treatment
This is a repair treatment for dry and damaged hair. Smoothing, Regeneration, Color protection, Sun protection, Detangling, Shine and Heat protection. This stuff smells awesome. It smells like coconut, and has a spray tip, so you don't have to get your hands covered in goop. I feel the sample probably isn't big enough to truly see a difference, but it smells great, so why not use it up.

Estee Lauder - Sumptuous Knockout Defining Lift and Fan Mascara
Turn ordinary lashes into knockout lashes: lifted, separated and fanned out for maximum lash impact. Lush, full… the blackest black.
I haven't tried this yet, just because I have 3 other mascaras opened and a ton sitting in my drawer unopened ready to use. This will definitely get used at some point, just not yet.

All in all, I think this was a great diverse bag. There was a little skin care, makeup, and hair care. I can't wait to see what August brings!
