I’m underwhelmed by this month’s bag, but I’m not sure that it’s totally Topbox’s fault. There seems to be a lot of repetition in brands and some of those brands do not appeal to me, but they could be someone else’s favourite.
I received a sample size of Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara. I have several of these laying around and it is not a favourite of mine because the brush is so big and I tend to get more mascara on my eyelids than my eyelashes. The Bella Aura Skincare Antioxidant Booster looks promising, I have never tried this brand and if I like it, I’m still not going to pay $125 CAD for the full size of this product.
I received a Novex Leave in Conditioner. I’ve received 3 items from this brand this past year and it’s okay but I’d like to try something different than a leave in conditioner or hair mask. I was excited to see a nail polish from China Glaze and it’s Holo at ya Girl from the fall collection. Despite the name there is no “holo” in it and it’s a glitter topcoat. I’ve applied it with a sponge to get full opacity of colour. Because it’s a glitter topcoat, this might be the only time I wear it as glitter is difficult to remove and a peel off base coat (which I am using for this picture) doesn’t have the longevity I like. It is pretty though. Overall it’s a “meh” for this month’s Topbox for me. Hoping next month is more exciting for me.
