Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick
Perfected on-set in our L.A. photo studio, our long-wear, water-resistant liquid lipstick features Advanced Polymer Technology that makes it stay put and look as fresh and flawless as your first swipe—for up to 8 hours. Featherweight but fierce, this liquid matte formula is infused with lip-smoothing Primer Oil complex for suede-soft lip color in 20 super-rad shades. It’s smudge-proof, budge-proof and non-feathering. Because really, who has time for touch-ups?
I wasn’t a HUGE fan of the colour (it’s a bit more orange-y once you apply on the lips) but I did test it with water and make-up remover after 20 minutes of wearing it and some remained on even after the make-up remover! Water didn’t do anything to it-so that tells you that you can freely drink your drinks and sip your water, maybe take a shower while you’re at it and not have to worry about this liquid lipstick coming off! Full-size retailed at $28.00.
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo
amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo is your secret weapon to maintaining your style. Enriched with natural rice starch, which immediately works to absorb excess oils, Perk Up Dry Shampoo is one of the only dry shampoos on the market formulated without aluminum starch or telltale, chalky talc.
I can definitely use this item, and that makes me really happy! Afterall, who doesn’t have those days when you just have no desire to wash your hair? This dry shampoo is colour free with no harmful ingredients. Retailed at $24.00
CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat
Fully dry in 8 ½ minutes featuring brilliant shine that lasts with easy removal. The final layer that completes the VINYLUX system.
I tried this top coat today after painting my nails, and the shine really is great. I like that the website tells you exactly how long to wait until the coat is completely dry, that probably has saved a lot of nails in the past! Retailed at $11.95.

I’m so obsessed with anything organic that is meant for hair (well, I’m obsessed with organic anything)- and as the St. Tropica website states, these organic hair masks are raw, unrefined, and vegan. I haven’t tried this yet but I’m excited to see what it does to my hair! A pack of 3 is $15.00, a pack of 6 is $27.00 and a pack of 12 is $48.00.
With Topbox, you are getting a higher value of items than what you paying for, so even though most of your products will be samples, you have to keep in mind that you’re only paying $12.00 for this whole box! The variety is fabulous, with items for makeup, hair and nails and the brands are clearly luxurious and top notch! I’m not picky with beauty products and I love trying new things out (especially organic products) to see what I like best, so this box fits me like a glove!
