December 2013 Topbox

by - January 04, 2014

Hello my friends, I hope everyone had a great relaxing holiday. I finally did after Christmas was done and over with. I don’t know but I just wasn’t feeling the season this year. I guess that was because I HAD to work! Ugh HAHA But in all seriousness I hope you dolls have a great New Year and meet all the goals you set forth for yourself! Maybe I should do a post on my goals for the New Year. I call them goals not resolutions. Goals seem more attainable than resolutions. Resolution sounds so final. Annndd now I am rambling…

For la December, I opted for the regular Topbox. None of the privé choices excited me other that the Givenchy one but I already had that….maybe I should have went for another one?  Hmmmm

Anyhow, I wasn’t excited about the December Topbox I received. I was hoping for the red Cuccio lacquer but got a gold glitter (which is an exact dupe for Milani’s Gold Glitz that I already have).

Belvada Coconut Lip Butter

Full Size: 10ml/not yet available
This was the one item out of the box that I loved. I love the smell of coconuts. Plusssss it tastes good too. Yeah I was tasting it on my lips. Numnum. I find this lip butter pretty nourishing. I actually found this one a bit more emollient than my BodyShop lip butter.  I looked today and this lip butter was still not available on the Belvada website. I think the SRP is $10. Body Shop’s lip butter is $4.50. How much better is this lip butter? Well not double the price better.

It is too …too something for me. Too florally sweet? I don’t know but I didn’t like it.

I kind of mentioned it a bit earlier in the post but I was hoping to get the red lacquer that was going on around out there but I ended getting the gold glitter.  Don't get me wrong, it is a good polish - a thick gold glitter. It will be great for blinging up my nails but I already have Milani’s Gold Glitz which is an exact dupe for this one. Milani’s bottle is even shaped the same albeit a little bit smaller.

I don’t like these types of samples. I hate twisting the cap off and then what? What do you do with the leftover? 
But I will try it out on my forehead and see if it works. I am starting to get some fine lines there. Oh the joys of getting older... :(  But this a temporary fix not a cure for the actual wrinkle.

Not one of the better TopBoxes. I am kind of wishing I went for the Benefit Privé TopBox for January seeing how December’s regular box kind of fizzled.

What were your thoughts on the December TopBox?

  1. I went for the Lash Em Box just because. I figured I'd give my baby lashes a boost with their "special sauce serum" ;-)
    I thought I liked the Modern Muse fragrance at first, but then as the day wore on, it just didn't gel with me. I didn't like how it smelled after a couple of hours.
    I think I went for the regular Topbox for January, but in all honesty, I can't remember! December was just too nutty!

    1. LOL @ special sauce serum! You made me hork on my soda LOL
