July 2015 Topbox
Hello Makeupnuts, the July Topbox is here! When I saw the Instagram pics of the July Topboxes, I really wanted the Alex Fashion Beauty one. It had a really cool pink Ceramic Glaze polish in there that I wouldn’t have mind getting. Then I realized I already have all the items in the box with the exception of the Ceramic Glaze polish. So I guess it is better to try something new.

I am pretty happy with the one I did get though. It included almost all makeup so that is always a big hit for me.

Let’s see what I got;
July 2015 Topbox

So Susan Rose Quartet Lip and Cheek Cream      full size
Full size $12
A richly-pigmented hydrating lip & cheek pomade that delivers 12 hours of continuous wear without dryness, creasing or smudging.
These cruelty-free lip creams are pigmented, I can confirm that! Such pretty colours! Plus they are very moisturizing. Almost like a balm. I am already sporting the nude peach. I couldn’t wait.

Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil              deluxe size
Full size 150ml/$69
Multi-use elixir that moisturizes and protects with intense nutrition. Rapidly absorbed into hair fiber, it rebalances the moisture level of dry hair. The soft- sleek velvety oil creates a supple touch with high shine and provides UV protection. Formulated for daily use. Safe on color-treated hair.
At first I wasn’t too excited when I saw this. I was like What? $70 for a hair serum? But holy crap, once I put one little pump into my hair I was hooked. My hair felt so smooth and hydrated. Almost like I just did a hair mask. Even my coworkers tried it out and loved it. It smells great and works like a dream at fixing dry dehydrated hair. I hope this 30ml bottle last me forever. $70? I don’t know if I can go there for a hair product.

Benefit They’re Real! Push Up Liner in Beyond Brown   deluxe  size
Full size 1.4g/$27
It’s the FIRST EVER lash-hugging gel liner in a pen! This matte gel formula won’t smudge, budge or dry out, and the innovative soft AccuFlex Tip hugs your lashline from corner to corner, the closer line, the bigger the eye!
I have the full size version of the black They’re Real! Push Up Liner which I do enjoy using. I did a review on it here. This AccuFlex Tip does have a bit of a learning curve with it though. I really liked the black liner because it was the blackest matte liner I have. All other gels have a bit of shine to them. From the swatch below, you can see this is a really dark matte brown and once it on and sets, it does not budge.

OFRA Cosmetics Universal Eyebrow Pencil         full size
Full size $13
Can be applied directly to the eyebrow area then smudged gently with a small brush or brow wand applicator. Use a light hand with soft feather strokes for blonde/fair skin and heavier hand for darker brows till you see the color darken with more strokes. The more you apply the brow pencil the darker color you will get.
I have received this before in an Ipsy Glam bag and I was pretty Meh about it. The colour is a dark brown. Of course with a light hand any color will appear lighter but I do not think blondes or red heads will like this pencil.  Plus it smudges. I forgot one day and scratch my eyebrow, then scratched my cheek and had brown eye pencil on my face. So this one is a pass for me.

I have to say the stand out item this month would be the Shu Uemera Protective Oil. Oh My God! It’s amazing! Like I said before I cannot see myself spending $70 on hair oil but from how great my hair feels right now, I don’t know... That’s a haircut, bed, toys, food for my dogs, groceries, a pair of shoes, gas money. Yikes! There I talked myself out of it (for now). This is the dilemma I go through each time I think I see something I need. Anyone else need to do this too? Talk yourself in from ledge? No? Just me?

Anyhooo, how did you like your Topbox? Were you one of the lucky ones that got the Alex Fashion Beauty Box?
