Topbox May 2013

I’m actually pretty disappointed by Topbox’s products for May. I’ll talk about that later on.


Cuccio Colour // Nail Lacquer (Tel-Aviv About It!)

[[ Triple pigmented colour, DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde FREE, high shine professional nail colours. ]]
Full Size: $10/14mL || Received: $10/14mL *FULL SIZE*

Lise Watier // Haute Couleur High Coverage Lip Lacquer

[[ Intense colour, extreme shine, long-lasting. ]]
Full Size: $23/6mL || Received: $5.75/1.5mL

Yaby // Eyeshadow Refill (Green Delicious)

[[ Highly pigmented eyeshadow with super smooth texture that blends effortlessly. ]]
Full Size: $3.15/3g || Received: $3.15/3g *FULL SIZE*

Deborah Lippmann // Smooth Operator

[[ An ultra-modern 4 way nail buffer. ]]
Full Size: $12/each || Received: $12/each *FULL SIZE*

Approximate Box Value: $30.90

I don’t really get why they gave us a green shadow. It’s not exactly the most wearable colour available. Whenever these subscription services ask what about sort of looks or colours we go for I choose natural, simple options. If I receive more nude colours I would probably use it, but green? When would I use green?

I also wish we got a polish from Deborah Lippmann instead of the buffer LOL. Come on, that’s what the brand is known for ::GAH::.

Glam Bag March 2013

Full Size: $9.95 || Received: $9.95 *FULL SIZED*

Initially when I checked the website out to find out the price for this product back in March it didn’t appear on the site. I wasn’t very happy about that because I have this thing where I usually dislike them giving us products that we cannot actually purchase. What’s the point of giving us something we like, but can never repurchase, right? And for that matter, other people can’t purchase which I’m sure companies would want when we blog about their products.

Anyway, I just checked it today and it seems that they’re planning to actually add it soon! I think it’s a great product for them to sell because it’s a pretty affordable palette to buy and customize. The patterns they have coming out for the case seem to be real cute too! I think this is a nice size for us to have and bring around because I’m sure for a quick look most of us don’t use past 3 eyeshadows. It also comes with a mirror for convenience.


Yaby // Eyeshadow (Seashell – es192 & Azalea Petal – es133)

[[ Whether you want to make a dramatic statement or just add a veil of color to your eyes, the yaby eyeshadow refills are extremely easy to work with. Can be used wet or dry and the smooth texture allows blending with ease. All shadows are vegan friendly and the pans are reusable for mixing. ]]
Full Size: $3.34/each || Received: $6.68 ($3.34 x 2) *FULL SIZED*

I’m really happy that Glam Bag gives me more neutral controls because that means it’s actually colours I’ll use! Both of these colours look really nice so I’m excited to try them out! I’ve been wearing more eyeshadow lately too.

Juice Beauty // Hydrating Mist

[[ Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist tones, hydrates, and refreshes your face and hair while on the go, anytime of the day. Hydrate with the refreshing blends of organic juices for a fresh, radiant complexion. ]]
Full Size: $22.00/200mL || Received: $3.30/30mL

I’ve been using Avène’s mist for a while now so I’m curious to see what this one will be like. The reviews of it on ipsy look like it either works but smells weird or it just plain smells weird LOL! But a good addition to the bag since warmer weather is approaching.

LA Fresh // Makeup Remover Wipes

[[ La Fresh Travel Lite portable towlette wipes are perfect for jetsetters, go-getters, outdoor enthusiasts and multi-taskers everywhere. Towlette packets are small in size, designed for practicality and are easy to apply discreetly. Each item is carry-on friendly and slim enough to slip into a pocket, purse or wallet.

Will edit entry with reviews as I try them out!

Glymm February 2013

This was my last bag for Glymm. I unsubscribed after they decided to raise the price even for their long time subscribers. It’s now at $15 for everyone. I was already thinking of stopping my subscription with them. I didn’t yet though because my grandma said that if I was thinking of dropping Glymm, she’ll take over my subscription. At $15 though I don’t think it’s worth it for anyone.

Glymm changed their shipping date to end of the month instead of the middle of the month. Not a great start to things. I received my February Glymm bag in March. It wasn’t even worth it.

[[ Purely Pro’s eyeshadows are formulated with cutting edge technology. Gorgeous color choices and luminous pigments allow for a smooth and gentle experience on one of the most delicate parts of the face.

Villainess // Ginger Snapped Bar Soap

[[ Introducing Ginger Snapped! This sinfully scented bar soap from Villainess features sweet cinnamon and rich cardamom, blended together with spicy ginger and a hint of innocent vanilla. ]]
Full Size: 99g/$6.00 || Received: ??

NailUV // Gel Polish (Berry Sweetie)

Full Size: 15ml/$14.95 || Received: ??

This is one of the most pointless products to give us; along with the hair extensions they gave us back then. Why do I say that? To use this product, we need to use a UV/LED light. Why even give us this polish???

[[ Femme Couture Monster Gloss is a highly moisturizing lip gloss that creates luscious, smooth, and full lips. This gloss comes with a large wand which makes for an easy application, all while keeping your lips moist and intense with color and shine. ]]
