Love treating yourself to something new every month? Shoes and purses can get expensive, so why not indulge in a new gloss or moisturizer for a small price of $10 a month! Topbox.ca is joining the likes of Glymm, Loose Button, Luxe Box, and Birchbox by bringing you beauty enthusiasts deluxe size samples right to your door. What's so different about Topbox.ca right?
I had done a review a while ago about Loose Button. Overall, it's a great program if you love trying new products without committing to a full size. Since I receive samples for my blog, it wasn't for me plus I was a little underwhelmed by the products that were sent to me.
Topbox, like all the other brands, chooses top brands to include in your monthly box. Where I found they did differ is that in November's Topbox, 2 full size samples were included! That alone makes the $10 fee worth it plus shipping is free. Full size samples are not always offered - it really depends on the brand. I received:
- Full Size Deborah Lippman Nail Polish in Some Enchanted Evening (pink salmon glitter) $19.50 CAD
- Full Size Cake Beauty It's A Slice Velveteen Hand Cream $18 CAD
- Deluxe Size Dr. Brandt Time Arrest Eye Serum $85 CAD
- Deluxe Size Stila Lip Glaze in Raspberry $22 CAD
I was so stoked to receive the Deborah Lippman polish. I've been wanting to try this line for a long time, but could never justify the price for a nail polish. I just love her sparkly glitter polishes. The mix of fine glitter and round glitter make the polish look so fun and whimsical.
Some Enchanted Evening is a pink salmon glitter on a clear base. The shade makes me want to throw on a ballerina tutu, not that I have one (wish...). I still had Sephora by OPI's "I'm With Brad" on so I layered Some Enchanted Evening on top. I really like the mix of pink and chocolate brown. On it's own, it's really soft and feminine. I think I'll do this when I feel like going more subtle on my nails. You need a few layers though to really make the glitter less splotchy looking.
I love Cake Beauty anything especially their hand creams. I own the original one and Vanilla Snow and I always get compliments on them. It's A Slice's mango scent is just as delicious and my new favourite!
Stila Lip Glaze's are a cult classic and I've owned a few in my time. They are a bit tacky, but the shine lasts for a long time. Raspberry is a sheer pinky-red and would work for a lot of skin tones.
I actually have the full size of Dr. Brandt Time Arrest Eye Serum. I find under makeup it starts to pill into a ball. I've tried even using the smallest amount and it still does that. I would save this for night time as I did like how radiant it made my under eyes look.
What I love about Topbox is that the brand is conscious of the environment. A lot of the other companies do send you the products in boxes that are way too big and often shipped in an additional box. Topbox's products are shipped in a sturdy round cylinder box which cuts down on the packaging. Another reason to love them, is that the cylinder doesn't have their logo on it so you can reuse this pretty box for whatever you desire! I think I'm going to be using this as a brush holder - how cute would that be? I'm going to put something in the bottom so my brushes won't sink to the bottom.
