The One with the Topbox July 2017 Box

Guys, I have a great Topbox to share with you this month! I think it’s one of the best ones I’ve received in a very long time! I’m so excited, I’m just going to get right to it… let’s look inside!

What is it? Topbox
How much is it? $12 CAD per month (plus tax)
Ships to? Canada
Shipping costs? Free
What’s inside? 4 deluxe sample or full size beauty products

Benefit Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer
It’s really cool to get a high end concealer in this box! I received the shade “No. 1 Light.” There are only 3 shades total of this concealer which isn’t very good. Reading the description on Sephora, this is said to be sheer to medium coverage so I’m expecting a very natural finish, which is good for those with fine lines. It’s not supposed to crease or cake up, either. I’m always in need of more concealer so I’m happy to get this!
Retail Value: $8.64 CAD for 1.6 g (full size is $27 for 5 g)

Essie Nail Lacquer
I got the shade “752 Turquoise & Caicos.” It’s sort of a seafoam type green. I don’t see how they get turquoise from this at all! It’s weird because a quick google search shows this colour as definitely turquoise. I’m not sure why there’s such a big difference but it’s still a pretty colour! This is the type of green that I like! I generally like Essie nail polish. It’s only 3-free and I tend to stick to 5-free and up but I don’t mind using it once in awhile.
Retail Value: $9.99 CAD (full size)

GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment
I was pumped to find out we were getting GlamGlow this month! Especially the SuperMud because I recently discovered how much I love it. Since it’s so expensive, I mainly use it as a spot treatment and areas I am prone to acne. It has worked really well for me in reducing pimples much quicker and even preventing new ones that I can feel forming from getting out of hand.
Retail Value: $24 CAD (travel size)

LaRitzy Undressed Liquid Lip Stain
This is the only miss for me simply because I don’t like the colour. It’s too dark and too brown for my taste! It seems like a great liquid lipstick for those that like this colour. It’s called “Pebble.” I don’t see this shade on their website so I’m not sure if it’s new or discontinued. This is a cruelty free company!
Retail Value: $25.02 CAD (full size)

img_7580BONUS ITEM: Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Dry Skin Gel Cream
This is a complimentary sample that everyone received in their Topbox! Normally we just get 4 items but Topbox is so great with including extras! This moisturizer looks really good! I feel like gel creams are becoming more popular. I still need to try this! Honestly, from the looks of it, it reminds me of the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask that I used last night.  XD It smells really nice! I’m not even sure that this is available to purchase yet online for Canadians because I can’t seem to find it anywhere but American sites.
Retail Value: $2.54 CAD for 6 ml (full size is $21.26 for 1.7 oz)

Total Retail Value: $70.19 CAD

Final Thoughts? Topbox could have given me just the GlamGlow this month and I would have been happy.  XD I really consider the other 4 items a bonus! So as you may have guessed, the GlamGlow is my favourite item. I am also anxious to try out the concealer and gel cream! I won’t use the lip stain but maybe I can try mixing it with another shade! Overall, amazing Topbox this month! I really hope you enjoyed yours if you got one too!

xoxo, Tigritsa
