Topbox/ November Unboxing

Welcome to the November unboxing of Topbox. This is the regular months box. This time I opted out of getting the special boxes only because they really didn’t impress me. I was really hoping that it would have been a wow unboxing but I honestly have to say that I am not really impressed with it this month.
 
I think if the December box is like this and no wow to it that I will be cancelling it. I know that this is one of the cheaper beauty box subscriptions but still I could put that money towards something that I will truly love and appreciate it.
 

 One of the things I really noticed is that the tube is getting smaller as is the contents in the tube. We literally just get sample sized items. They are just your stardard sample sizes nothing deluxe here which is really too bad because we aren’t getting what we paid for. Hence why I might very well cancel this come the new year.

 The first item I pulled out was the Pleats Please by Issey Miyake parfum. Had this come in last months box I would have had no idea who Issey Miyake was but now I do because when my brother in law came into town recently he brought me back L’Eau d’Issey which I just love.

This is Pleats Please EAU DE TOILETTE

A luminous, joyful, floral bouquet whose addictive base notes combine the sweetness of vanilla layered over vibrant woody notes. A distinctive fragrance with palpable, enveloping femininity. Available in 30, 50 and 100 ml spray formats. The full size retails for $106 for 100ml and I got a sample of 4ml.
 
Honestly at first I really didn’t like the smell of it but as the day went on it became a really nice scent. I think it would make a really nice fall/winter scent. I am not good at describing scents so I won’t even attempt it.

 The next item I pulled out was the Shum Uemura and its a cleansing Beauty Oil. I haven’t used any products by Shu Uemura but I am curious about this because it removes effortless all kind of make-up and impurities. skin feels soften, conditioned, hydrated, nourished from within and glows with a new radiance.

The full size retails for $82-$98 for 450ml or $38-$48 for 150ml. I got a sample size of 20ml

 I have to admit I was a little disappointed in this because its not even completely filled. Its roughly half filled if that. This is  Cover FX and its a CC Cream Time Release Tinted Treatment. This is suppose to treat, correct and protect the skin and its buildable. It will leave you with radiant and natural finish.

The full size retails for $45 for 30ml and I got a tube that says 5ml and I highly doubt its got 5 ml worth of cream in it.

Not sure how many uses I can really get out of it especially if I am suppose to cover my entire face. I did blend in the sample on my hand and it did a good job blending in but I really didn’t like the scent it gave off.

 
 
Finally the last thing I pulled out was this Elizabeth Arden beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipsticks. The card has three bubbles filled with Red Door (it seems like a deep red ), Pretty Pink (its like a nude pink LOVE THIS) and Neoclassic Coral (a coral shade). I love that it comes with a little brush as well. I am pretty sure you can get a few uses out of each shade.
 
They retail for $30 for 3.5g and we got a sample of 0.75g in each bubble.
 
The last thing that was in the box was a Trend Trunk gift card and I was hoping for the $250 card but sadly only got $5.00 which isn’t alot so I am sure this won’t get used.
 
So there it is my Topbox for November. Nothing really impressive about this. What do you think?

  1. Yeah, I feel pretty much exactly the same as you. Topbox has really gone downhill lately. The lipsticks for me were a repeat – already got them before in October! There’s nothing here you can’t get for free if you ask at the cosmetics counter.

    Here’s my review:
