THE BIG REVEAL: November 2012 Topbox

On Friday I received my final Topbox – while I’m a little sad to end my subscription, I just couldn’t justify continuing to subscribe when I haven’t been completely satisfied with my boxes.  Topbox, I’m sorry I had to break up with you – our relationship has been a little rocky, and I think it’s time for us to take a break.

On the bright side, Ipsy (formerly Myglam) has started sending to Canada, so I have decided to give that a try – I should be getting my first box in the next few days, so make sure you come back to see what that one is like!

Anyways, take a look at my November Topbox:

Cuccio Naturale – Butter Blend (.24 g sample – full size = $18.95/240 g) – Pomegranate and fig scented hand lotion – it is stated as being non-oily which is great – there’s nothing worse than a hand cream that leaves your hands feeling greasy rather than soft.

B. Kamins Nia-Stem Serum Kx (3 g sample – full size = $135/30 mL) &  Moisturizer Kx (3 g sample – full size = $125/50 mL) – I have tried samples of a couple of B Kamins products that I received in a GlossyBox before and they are really nice – they’re also a Canadian company which makes them stand out to me.  These samples are for anti-aging serums and moisturizers to help repair and brighten skin.  Looking forward to trying these out – they’re a little on the pricey side, so it’s always fun to try something a little bit more luxurious.

Roberto Cavalli Eau de Parfum Deluxe Miniature (5 ml sample – full size = $80/50 mL & $105/75 mL) – First off, I have to say I loooove this miniature – so cute, and it’s a great size! This perfume is very feminine – sweet, but it has a sexy side to it as well.

China Glaze Polish in I Herd That (FULL SIZE! $10-12) – The nail polish gods must have been smiling on me when my Topbox was packed.  This polish, from the On Safari Collection, is g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s!  Light gold and oh so sparkly, it fits in so well with my polish tastes – in case you haven’t gotten the hint from previous posts, I am unashamedly glitter-obsessed, and this polish looks like I’ve got crushed up diamonds on my tips. LOVE!

The real shame here? Pictures can't accurately capture how gorgeous this polish is.

    My Topbox was SO different from yours – crazy. The only thing in common was a China Glaze polish – mine was a nice purple shade. I got a Pari lip stain and Benefit “They’re Real!” Mascara (which also arrived in my Nov MyGlam/Ipsy Bag!) My card said I was supposed to receive a Vera Wang perfume, but it was missing. I e-mailed TopBox and they said they will include it in my December box. Wasn’t very impressed overall, although I had been wanting to try the Benefit mascara. I think I’ll give them one more chance for December, and they I will likely cancel my subscription as well.

    I did receive my first Ipsy bag today though, and I LOVED it! 🙂 It was packed full of great goodies that I can’t wait to try!
