Topbox January 2014

Saturday, 18 January 2014

Topbox has changed their shipping such that the box is shipped on the 15th of every month.  So, on January 16th I came home to my box!

I must admit that I haven't been very impressed with their regular boxes, however I have been thrilled with my privĂ© boxes.  First the Givenchy box, and now the Benefit box!

The box is lovely, themed for Chinese New Year.  Check it out!  I was pretty happy to be getting this version.  No new products to try, but I have tried all of them and liked them, just not enough to buy the full size.

Benetint, BADgal Lash mascara, The Porefessional Primer and Total Moisture Facial Cream

BADgal has a massive brush.  Not my favourite mascara, but it is reliable, and perfect for travel.  The primer sample is smaller than I would have liked, but again great for travel.  This is a great general primer, on par with Smashbox.  The Benetint is tiiiiiiiiiiiiny, but travel and purse friendly.  I love it on my lips because it gives a nice tint, without being goopy (its a stain), and is kiss friendly.  As for the face cream, it does the job.  I am in love with the heavy glass jar.  I got a sample this size last year and I still use the jar for various products when I travel.

On Topbox, I really do not recommend the normal box.  I wasn't thrilled with my last one.  However the PrivĂ© boxes partner with great brands and often are a good choice.  While the surprise factor is lost, I like knowing that I will love (or at least not hate) what comes in the mail!
