TopBox Reveal | November

11/18/13





I'm not going to lie and I'm going to come right out with it, I was quite disappointed with this month's TopBox.
This month it came with a sample of the Cover FX CC Cream, a sample of the Shu Uemura skin purifier cleansing oil, a sample of Pleats, Please perfume from Issey Miyake, and some samples of the Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipsticks. For the Elizabeth Arden lipstick samples, I got Red Door Red 02, Pretty Pink 23 and Neoclassic Coral 12.
I also got some sort of Trend Truck gift card...except when I tried to use it, it wasn't a gift card at all! Just an advertisement dolled up as a gift card. Needless to say, I was peeved. Four samples and a measly advertisement?? Seriously, Topbox? Is that really worth my monthly 15$?
Okay so 15$ per month isn't a fortune, but I do at least, want my money's worth! And a piece of paper is not my money's worth.
I am excited to try the Shu Uemura skin purifier cleansing oil, since I've been curious to try a cleansing oil for quite some time. 
I don't tend to use tinted creams, so I'll try the CC cream but I don't have high hopes. I also only use my Chanel Chance perfume and this Pleats, Please perfume seems like a quite ordinary light musk floral scent. It's nice but it's not for me. Any takers? 
I'm also not a huge fan of Elizabeth Arden pigmented make-up (although I have some of her skincare items), but I'm curious to see if these lipsticks are as pigmented and moisturizing as they claim! I just hate these lipstick tester pots, don't you? They always dry out and I can never use them more than once! 

What do you ladies think of this month's Topbox? Do you subscribe a monthly Beauty Box?
