May 2012 TopboxWednesday, May 30, 2012
My May Topbox arrived today, a little later than usual. Short story: my box was mailed to my old address but Topbox was kind enough to resend it to my new address and throw in an extra sample.
1. Cover FX Matte Foundation Primer
This is a great "anti-shine" primer. It is supposed to reduce lines and pores while preventing and healing acne blemishes. The mattifying effect is great for the summer season. It will help keep the shine at bay.
2. Deborah Lippmann Whatever Lola Wants
This is the second Lippmann polish I have received in a Topbox. These polishes are beautiful, from the formulation to the colour selection. This particular polish was created with Kelly Ripa. It's a beautiful shimmery pink. It's quite sheer though.
3. Orlane Anagenèse 25+
This first time-fighting eye cream is supposed to diminish fine lines puffiness, and dark circles. It's also supposed to leave your eyes looking smoothed, luminous, and lastingly younger-looking.
4. Expressions Bronzing Powder Brush
This is a great brush. It reminds me a lot of the bronzing brush from EcoTools. I'm not certain whether the hairs are real or synthetic, but I do know that they feel very soft on the skin. I also like how dense the hairs are. I am definitely going to be using this brush in the future, probably with my Chanel Bronze Universal.
5. Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser
This was the bonus product I received in my box. Though I'm not a fan of Philosophy's skincare products, their cleansers and bath products are lovely. I actually really enjoy this particular cleanser because it leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean. I don't use it all the time because I find it too drying sometimes, but it really feels like it deep cleans my pores.
I really enjoyed this month's box, it was full of great products. Until next time, hope you're having a wonderful day! x
