September 2016 Topbox - Review and Unboxing + Unilever Limited Edition Trends Box!

TopBox is a Canadian Beauty Box Subscription - for $12 CDN a month with free shipping, you will receive 4 deluxe sample size or full size products. You fill out a beauty profile and generally receive products based on what you have identified in the profile. Also, every month you have the option to wish for a "prive" box, which is a box that focuses on one brand or product for the whole box.

Each month comes with a couple variations, so you may not receive exactly the same products as me, but generally 1 or 2 are the same throughout all the bags. 
TopBox is a Canadian company and only ships to Canada. There is usually a month or two waitlist for this subscription. 

For September, I requested a regular Topbox - here is a look at what I received:

September 2016 - Ipsy Glambag Review and Unboxing!
This month's theme is "Glamazon" - Full-on glamour is back. Put away your sweatpants, let down your ponytail and get glammed up just for the hell of it. Woke up like this? As if. I'm not the biggest fan of this bag, personally but it's not a big deal to me; I usually like them.
