TopBox August 2015 Canadian Subscription Beauty Box

Topbox Review – August

This month’s TopBox came with 4 full size items and an extra bonus item! The value was amazing and this box has definitely become one of my favourites. Topbox is affordable and the items received are from great brands.

Subscription Box: TopBox
Cost: $12 Free Shipping (Canada Only)+Tax  / month
What you get:  4 samples of beauty and skincare products


Benefit Gimme Brow $24 @benefitcosmetics.com

I’ve heard nothing but good things about this product so I’m excited to try this out. We received the full size product which retails at $24 on their website and that’s double the cost of Topbox. Definitely a win with this one!

Model Co Lipgloss in Striptease $20 @modelcocosmetics.com

This lipgloss smells nice and I like the ‘striptease’ colour. I think this is the first lipgloss I’ve used that comes with a mirror on the side and all I have to ask is why don’t all lipglosses come like this. It’s really useful especially when you are outside. It retails for $20 on their website. and comes in 8 shades.

Ceramic Glaze Nail Polish in Mermaid’s Tale $11 @shoppersdrugmart exclusively

The colour of this polish (Mermaid’s Tale) is very nice and bright. Unfortunately it needs two or more coats to cover properly and started chipping off after about an hour and was half gone by the next day. I didn’t use a base or topcoat so maybe with those it would last longer.

Be a Bombshell Eyeshadow Quad in Bora Bora $16 @beabombshellcosmetics.com or @amazon.com

I absolutely adore the shades in this eyeshadow quad. The colours are so vibrant and very pigmented on. I’m becoming a fan of this brand.

Tresemme Perfectly Undone Waves Seafoam – Bonus $5.09 for 5.1oz @ amazon.com

I think everyone received this bonus item in their box this month. It’s supposed to make nice waves in your hair, I have straight straight hair and this did nothing for me but it might work for someone with a different hair texture.

Overall Thoughts and Impressions: For $12 + Tax I’m very impressed with this month’s Topbox, it had an awesome value at over $70, and all 4 items were full sized plus we got a bonus sample item. Even though not every item was to my liking I definitely got my money’s worth. If you are in Canada and are looking to try out a beauty box I’d definitely recommend giving this one a try.  You can click HERE to visit the Topbox website.

      It was ok. I think it does make them look much more even and neat.

    I tried the Ceramic Glaze – manicurist says that my nails are too soft and its normal for the tips of my nails to chip.
