May 2012 Topbox

Hi Girls!

So, as some of you have already seen, this month’s Topbox is nothing short of absolutely amazing! I actually got my shipment notification on May 9th only to see that it was due to arrive on May 10th! When I looked at the tracking info, I saw that Topbox had actually shipped out to me on May 4th! Wow, Topbox. Incredibly speedy service! I guess I should thank Canada Post as well! I should also add that because my Topbox came so soon, this was the first time that I had absolutely no idea what was in it, so it was a genuine surprise!

In May’s Topbox I received:

Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in “Whatever Lola Wants”

Excitement Level: OMG!!! I don’t own a Lippmann because I find the price to be exorbitant. I’ve mentioned before that $15 is my limit for a bottle of nail polish, but that doesn’t stop me from coveting a Lippmann of my own Winking smile  My jaw actually dropped when I unwrapped the purple tissue and recognized that infamous cube-shaped bottle. This is a pearly, shimmery pink polish that seems very soft and feminine. I still can’t believe that this is the second Deborah Lippmann polish Topbox has included in their box! Awesome!

Full Size: 15mL/$20

I Received: *FULL SIZE*

As an additional Deborah Lippmann bonus, we also received a coupon for a complimentary nail file at any Holt Renfrew location which I thought was a nice touch!

Expressions Bronzing Power Brush

Excitement Level: The timing of this was perfect because I’ve been looking for a new bronzer brush and when I felt the bristles on my skin I knew that I had something I liked. The brush is very soft and I love how thick and sturdy the ferrule is.

Full Size: $25

I Received: *FULL SIZE*

Cover FX ClearPrep FX

DSCF3889

Excitement Level: As great as it is to receive a CoverFX product, this is more for acne prone skin which I don’t have so I’m not sure whether this is for me. It primes the skin for foundation application, helps treat acne pimples, and reduces the appearance of pores and shine. I am happy that there was a product included for those people who would benefit from its properties, but unfortunately, I don’t think I’m one of them.

Full Size: 30mL/$39

I Received: 7mL/$9.10

Orlane Anagenese 25+ First Time Fighting Care Eye Contour

DSCF3894

Excitement Level: I love Orlane products and to receive a product that is perfect for my age is awesome. This eye cream is meant to reduce fine lines, puffiness and dark circles and will illuminate and smooth the eye area. Looking forward to all of those wonderful things!

Full Size: 15mL/$75

I Received: 2mL/$10

Total Value of Topbox = $64.10

Amazing Topbox, well beyond my expectations mainly because of the Deborak Lippmann polish. I was a little sad that there wasn’t a personalized product this month, but that’s nothing compared to what we all received this month! I love you Topbox, let’s be friends forever!

  1. That Lippmann looks pretty!! I don't buy them either b/c of the price tag!

    1. I find that a lot of the Lippmann polishes look very similar to polishes of a much lower price tag...

  4. Apparently may is my last topbox. Not last month and I didn't get a chance to customize it. I received a Deborah Lippmann polish in my first box so I don't know if I will get again. I hope I do! I'm going to regret unsubscribing to topbox aren't I?? Lol at least I can live vicariously through your blog posts.

  8. You're right about the Lippmann's...while nice to own, you can get the same shades on the cheap usually!! Looks like a winning box to me, though!
