Its mid-October and the first beauty box out is Topbox. J
If you are not familiar with what Topbox is ... Topbox is a Canadian Beauty Box subscription service that retails for $10/mth for 4 premium beauty samples each month. Note that at least one product each month is makeup related.
In my October Topbox;
Endocare Concentrated Serum 2 AmpoulesFull Size: 7x1ml/$59
Concentrated serum provides intensive rejuvenating treatments for skin.
EndocareTensage Radiance Contour deluxe sample
Full size: 15ml/$72.50
A regenerative formula designed to correct and brighten the eye contour area
I am not a fan of ampoules...or perfume tubes. I am clumsy and always end up getting oil everywhere. That is just me...so graceful. Those that received the Endocare sample did receive an instruction email from Topbox.ca on how to open the ampoules properly. I will need to reread that one!
MaskerAide Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask one maskFull size: 1 mask/$4.99
MaskerAide is a unique line of super hydrating facial sheet masks created for fabulous lifestyles.
I have seen these being blogged about recently and was intrigued. I can’t wait to slap this on LOL!
|Stila In the Moment Shadows|
Full size: 14g/$50
I think this sampling of shadows of a complete palette is kind of cool. We get to try the shadows to see if we like it enough to spend the $50 on the full sized palette. I think there are probably a few uses from each shadow. Plus the sample card came with step by step instructions for two looks.
|Stila Lip Glaze - Raspberry|
|Stila Lip Glaze - Raspberry swatch|
Stila Lip Glaze in Raspberry Deluxe sample
This is a lip glaze so it is sheer. I found it a bit sticky but it smelled awesome. Like raspberries. I don't think it was full sized. I couldn't see the size on it but it still is pretty decent sized sample.
I was kind of hoping to get the Stila Prime Pot as I absolutely love my MAC Painterly Paint Pot and I wanted to compare the two but oh well, I happy with the lip glaze too.
I liked this box. I love getting eyeshadow. So I am happy. Even if it is only for a couple uses at least I can create a couple looks with it and determine if I want the big palette or if I have similar colours. I wish more companies would do this with their pricey palettes.
There was some variation of the boxes; some received Aveda shampoo/conditioner samples, Stila Prime Pot, and new subscribers received the Vasanti BrightenUp. My box version was Box-11.
Topbox still has a waiting list so if you want to try it sign up now! J
