Price: $12.00 CAD plus tax (free shipping), Number of items: 4-5

Hurray for beauty boxes, it really makes the month exciting, although the summer ones are bitter-sweet because it means that July is closer to ending…Summer is going by too fast!

Topbox is a Canadian monthly box that introduces customers to make-up, skin care, hair care and other neat things. Every month, subscribers are also given the opportunity to choose a Prive box in which a particular brand is showcased exclusively. If you want to learn more about Topbox or to Subscribe click here

I opted for a regular box this month

What I Received

1. Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Push Up Liner in Beyond Brown

I love Benefit!! I wasn’t, however, the biggest fan of this liner when it first came out. I do like this brown, but I wish if we were getting the coloured liners that I got one of the fun ones, like purple. After doing a swatch, it was the hardest to remove, which is good when wearing it, but you really need to get the They’re Real Makeup Remover (luckily I have some). Full Size Price $27.00 (1.4g), Sample Size $6.94 (0.36g)

2. Shu Uemura Essence Absolute Nourishing Protective Oil

I’m impressed with these beauty brand samples in my box! I love hair oils, I am always excited to receive more of them. Dry hair, meet your match! haha! AND! This smells amazing! I can’t put my finger on what it is but it is so luxurious and sweet! Full Size Price $69.00 (150mL), Sample Price $13.80 (30 mL)

3. So Susan Rose Quartet Lip & Cheek Stain

These colours are super pigmented, I was honestly not expecting them to be so vibrant! I love when products surprise me! The pots are a bit small so I’m not sure how I’d use this for me cheeks, but for lips it’s perfect. The samples came with a small lip brush so it’s awesome for traveling with (which I’ll be doing soon!) This product claims to give 12hrs of wear with no creasing, drying or smudging, I hope they’re right! Full Size Price $12.00 (4g), this is a full size product. 

4. OFRA Cosmetics OFRA Universal Eyebrow Pencil

I’ve used the OFRA lip liners before and was really happy with them, so I’m excited to try the eyebrow pencil. This is a “one-colour-for-all” brow pencil, you use it lightly if you have blonde brows and harder strokes for dark brows. It came on really nice and creamy on my hand so I’m sure it’ll look good on my brows. I’ve been needing a brow pencil, so I will put this to good use. This also came with a how-to guide that I will be following. Full Size Price $13.00 (1.13g) this is another full size product. 

My Thoughts

I am super happy with everything in this bag (well not so much the liner, but I’ll give it another shot). The total value of my samples is $45.74.

      • Eh….the only things I really liked were the Benefit liner and the So Susan lip palette. I ended up cancelling my top box after this month. But there were a few items in it that I really ended up liking, so maybe I’ll resub someday. I don’t like how they send out so much hair care/skin care though.

      • That’s too bad, I’ve debated cancelling but part of me still wants to support a Canadian company and I do like their prive boxes. Try ipsy if you haven’t- its the best bang for your buck 🙂
        btw- I checked out your blog- love it 💙! I’m following you from now on

      • I’ve tried Ipsy, but it’s a little more than I’d like to spend a month after the exchange rate! Too bad, because it’s a great bag! And thanks so much for the follow– so glad you like my blog! 🙂
