June 2014 TopBox

Back in 2012 I was a faithful TopBox subscriber. I cancelled all my subscriptions but last month decided to take another look at beauty subscription boxes. To me, TopBox was always a pretty good value for money so I delved in again and joined.

This month's TopBox offered a wishlist of items you could "ask" for. You are directed to the website and then select options that you would prefer to have. There are no guarantees but....

I selected a solitary mascara as my preferred option. I love mascara, I am always on the lookout for good mascaras so this was right up my alley. There were a nail polish option, a couple of skincare options, mascara option and "send me the typical box" option.

Today I opened my box and I got my wish!  Yay for mascara!

The brand is Teeez Trendy Cosmetics. From what I can gather, Teeez is Dutch-based, paraben-free, cruelty-free and animal derivative-free cosmetics company. I've had no experience with any of their products previously but after a quick look on the Google machine, reports are good.

My mascara was Desert Metals Midnight Blue. I love the sleek look of the container and the wand is very reminiscent of Lancome Hypnose Mascara (I had the Star version and loved it).

 I decided to apply it (even after a LONG Difficult day) and feel that it does a reasonable job at giving my lashes the punch they so desperately need!
One coat of mascara

Two coats of mascara
 I think the two coats are needed but I am very interested in trying this out on an ongoing basis.

Note: I've been sizing up my eyelashes and have to admit that this mascara is delivering. Tomorrow I will wear it all day plus do my usual workout apr├Ęs work... We'll see how it holds up to THAT!!

I wish I could give you a cost, but I can't seem to find any reference to it in Canadian dollars. I suspect that it is in the $25 range - purely a guess though.

This month's TopBox was good value for the money - I'm pretty happy I rejoined.


PS. Here is a side by side comparison of two different mascaras. One on YOUR left (my right eye) is Teeez brand, the other is the from GlamNatural. I think there is quite the difference. Two coats each.
