May 2012 topbox

This is a nice gift, a day after Mother's Day.
I have been a good girl and didn't peek before I received mine.
I always enjoy opening topbox each month.

This month's box included:

Deborah Lippmann - Whateve Lola Wants
Full Size = Sample Size 15ml @ $20

Yeah!  Another Deborah Lippmann.   My first came in my November topbox.  At first I didnt think I will like it because it was so sheer but after 3 coats it looks really good.  I have even tried applying it on top of a OPI red nail polish and it looked pretty good too! I wonder if the next nail polish will be from Butter London...*hint*hint*

I was comparing this Deborah to one of my Sally's nail polish and I did find them very similar.  Not exactly the same but very very similar.

Left (2) - Sally Hensen, Right (2) - Deborah Lippman
Cover FX - ClearPrep FX
Full Size 30ml @ $39, Sample Size 7ml @ $9.10

This is a multi purpose matte foundation.  It is primer that reduces lines and pores and it helps prevent and heal acne blemishes.  I love multi purpose creams to help me save some time when getting ready in the morning.

Orlane - Eye care
Full Size 15ml @ $75, Sample Size 2ml @ $10

I am on the hunt to look for a good eye cream.  This is a good size so it should last me about a week.  I hope I don't fall in love with it because it is a bit pricey.

Expressions Bronzing Powder Brush
Full Size = Sample Size $25

I was over the moon when I saw this one.  This is my first brush from all the beauty boxes I receive.  I  never know which brand to purchase.  This is my first bronzing powder brush. :)
*Update* Not impressed.  The glue was not strong enough so the handle came off :(

Complimentary Nail File from Holt Renfrew
Value - Unknown.
I plan to go this weekend to pick it up.

Total Value of this box is $64+
