March 2013 Topbox | Pure + Simple Privè Box

by - March 18, 2013

Oops I thought I posted this last Friday! HA how did I not even notice that? Oh I know...I have family visiting and am having yet another flare up. YAY! But better late than never right?

There were quite a few choices this month for the March Topbox; two versions of Aveda samples, 3 versions of Pure + Simple, a Lippy Girl box or upgrade for $7 for Jurlique box. I kept changing my mind as to what box I wanted; Aveda or Pure + Simple. I finally made my one and only selection on the very last day. LOL such a procrastinator!

I opted for the first Pure + Simple Privè box. It was to contain a full size Pure + Simple blush and China Glaze lacquer in Purr-fect Plum.

I had an issue with my box this month. The blush was smashed L. Thankfully it was carefully wrapped so the blush contents were confined to the tissue paper. I also noticed that the size I received was 3.5 grams when the card states 5 grams.

Pure + Simple blush
aww broken...
I was sad about this but I contacted Topbox and they have contacted Pure + Simple for a replacement and will ship it in my April box. I guess this happened to a few people who received the Pure + Simple Privè boxes. But I am alright with getting this all sorted out in the April box.

Pure + Simple blush
pretty colour though

The colour was pretty. I haven’t tried it. Right now I have it wrapped up in the tissue still. I am going to see if I can transfer the loose contents to a sample jar. I just have to find my sample jars LOL. I have a bag of them somewhere in my spare bedroom or should I call it my junk room HAHA. It is a mineral blush so smashed or not, I might get some use out of it.

The China Glaze lacquer (Purr-fect Plum) was something that I do not have a duplicate of so I was happy with receiving it. I am surprised I do not have a reddish plum in my stash??

I am still reading reviews on everyone’s boxes. I am kind of glad I didn’t get the regular box. There were too many perfumes for my liking.

So I guess my March Topbox will be continued in the April Topbox.... J

  1. You don't have a plum coloured polish? Shocking! LOL. The blush looks like a pretty colour. I would just take the tissue and rub it on my face for the time being!
