Teeez Glam Sense Box 2015

I got my first Glam Sense Box in the mail last week, but I couldn’t take any pictures of it since the lighting is TERRIBLE over here and the sun sets around 5pm these days.

Here’s the Teeez Glam Sense Box!

The Teeez Glam Sense Box had one item: the Read My Lips Lipstick in Roulette Red. It came in a sleek black tube with a small brochure with some simple instructions on how to complete the Glam Sense campaign.

Basically, review, post on a social media platform with #teeezinGS, and email a link or a screenshot to info@glamsense.club by the date listed on the card! It’s so easy!

So, how is Teeez’s Read My Lips Lipstick in Roulette Red?

The lipstick is in a thin, plastic tube, which I was a little bit disappointed about. The graphic design is absolutely amazing, but I don’t like cheap plastic for higher end cosmetics! I’m always worried that the tube will crack or get crushed in my makeup bag or in my purse.

However, the lid does lock pretty tightly on the tube, so that’s really good. I’m not sure if that’ll wear out in the future, though.

I’m not a huge fan of matte lipsticks since they usually dry out my (already) dry lips, but I love super high, long lasting pigmentation!

Right out of the tube, it looks like a dark red with some brown tones. I usually avoid darker reds like this because it kind of clashes with my skin tones and I just don’t have the right mojo to really pull of that kind of style.

Otherwise, it’s a really great, dramatic shade of red!

As you can see, it’s SUPER pigmented! It’s just 2 quick swipes of the lipstick on my hand and it’s so, so red!

I tested it on my lips and I can tell you that it can easily last 8 hours of wear. I ate a big lunch with coffee and it didn’t budge at all! It’s also very silky and rich feeling without being very heavy, which is really amazing since it’s so pigmented.

The only issue is that the lipstick is really soft. My mom twisted the tube the wrong way and the whole lipstick fell right out! Be careful of heat with this lippy!

Final Verdict – I love how long lasting and moisturizing Teeez’s Read My Lips Lipstick is, but I wouldn’t keep it with me in a small purse or in a warm room. The artwork is gorgeous, but the packaging is so-so. I would have loved it a lot more if it was a different colour, but that’s just personal preference!

At $22USD, it comes up to about $29.50CAD before shipping and taxes.

Did you get a Glam Sense Box yet? Would you get a Teeez Read My Lips Lipstick?

Glam Sense powered by Topbox

There’s nothing like a little pampering, especially after a great run or really bad one. That’s why I signed up for Topbox’s new Glam Sense program!

I just got a confirmation letter saying that I’ve been selected to get one with some new information coming in the next 2 weeks.

It’s a brand new program from Topbox, so I’m not sure what exactly it’ll be, but I was defintiely interested enough to sign up when I got their first email.

I’m really excited to see what will be in the box and what’s next!

Topbox.ca – February 2014

More subscription mail today! I got my very first Topbox!

Topbox February 2014

What is it? Topbox is a Canadian monthly beauty box subscription that features 4 deluxe samples for $12 per month, shipped right to your door via Canada Post. Some months (like this time), they include full sized products for customers to get! Keep in mind that they do have a waitlist of about 2-3 months from initial sign-up before you get a box!

I got back home pretty late today, so it was a pleasant surprise to see it at my door!

Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

essie Nail Lacquer in Headmistress – $9.99 for 13.5mL (Full Size)

I’ve never had essie nail polish before, so I was really excited to see this in my box! The only problem that I’m facing now is where to stash all my polishes.

I could only tell after comparing it to butter London’s Come to Bed Red, but it’s more of a classic cherry colour with a slight blue undertone to it that’s really quite lovely in proper lighting.

The lights in the room are way too warm to really show off the true colour. (I need a manicure soon!)

So Susan Lip & Cheek Sublime (moisturizing lip & cheek stain) – $18 for 2.5g (Full Size)

I’m naturally blushing most of the time, so I doubt I’ll be using it as a cheek stain. But, it feels really nice to apply and the colour is a cute peachy pink that I’ve been wanting to try out for spring!

It looks like it might bleed a little bit on me, but it feels like it’ll double as a lip balm at the same time.

Here it is swatched with my Givenchy Le Rouge (301) for comparison…

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant (30mL sample) – $25 for 50mL

This is such a generous sample! Taken at retail value, this is already $15!

This skin protectant looks perfect against winter this year especially with some mild eczema flaring up, but I’ll have to wait for it to thaw out before I can try it since it was completely frozen. I hope it doesn’t affect it!

Epic Blend Lip Balm in More Moisture Unflavoured – $3.49 for 4.2g (Full Size)

More anti-winter goodness! It’s even better since it’s made out of organic moisturizing ingredients with a bit of vitamin E and rosemary extract to round out the ingredient deck. Nothing else needed and nothing else wanted!

What’s even better? It’s a Canadian company and Canadian-made!

I just bought a new EOS the other week, but I might save that one for summer since this one will probably melt off my face in the hot sun.

Verdict: 5/5 This box is AMAZING! I’m sure I’ll be using all of the products in the next little while and I’m ultra excited to do so!
