May's TopBox

I know that I really loved last month's recycled packaging and it must have went over so well with everyone else that this month (and I believe onward), that TopBox are letting you pick which type of packaging you want - recycled or the regular print box.  To me, it's these little touches that really build up "brand" loyalty.  I was already impressed with my box before I even got it!  LOL!

Being the little sneaker peeker that I am, I've already prowled a few of my fav blogs to see what they got in their boxes, so I kind of already knew what was going to be in mine.    :P
ORLANE - FIRST TIME-FIGHTING CARE EYE CONTOUR CREAM
This first time-fighting eye cream for the delicate eye area diminishes fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles leaving the eyes looking smoothed, luminous and lastingly younger looking.  This product was meant those that are 25+ (though, I'm not sure how they came up with that, but sure).  I've never tried Orlane before and I am running out of eye cream, so this is perfect!
full - $75 (15ml)
sample - $10 (2ml)

EXPRESSIONS - BRONZING POWDER BRUSH
Unfortunately, as soon as I slid my brush out of the tubing that it came in, it broke into two pieces.  *sad panda face*  I contacted Topbox and they got back to me within a couple of days and told me that they would send a replacement brush in my June box.  How's that for great customer service? (perhaps Loosebutton should take some notes).  But my initial reaction was how soft and dense the brush was.  I really liked how chunky the handle was because it'll give me greater control.
retail - $25

DEBORAH LIPPMAN - WHATEVER LOLA WANTS
I'm beyond excited to get this polish.  I had previously purchased a collection pack of Deborah Lippman polishes but those were glitter polishes, so it's nice to get a "real" polish. It's this beautiful shell-pink shimmer colour.  Very sheer and needs at least two coats before you can see any of the pink.  It's a perfect colour to put on for those days that you want to wear polish, but don't want to have to pick from your vast collection of polishes (oh c'mon!  Like we don't all have at least 10 polishes!  :P)  It is very similar to Julep's Emma.  Emma is more white based and this is one is more pink based.
full - $20

COVERFX - CLEAR PREPFX
This is an "anti-shine" primer that reduces lines and pores and is long-lasting and easy to blend.  It's a lightweight gel that helps prevent and heal acne blemishes.  I was actually looking at purchasing this primer, so now I can try it out without having to purchase the full size!
full - $39 (30ml)
sample - $9.10 (7ml)

I don't know how Topbox always manages to impress me.  I really liked this box and I'm really impressed with their customer service.  Despite not getting as many samples as the other boxes, this is one is probably my favourite beauty box.  

Total Value of Box: $64.10
