March 2016 Topbox Review

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

I know, it's nearly the end of April and I am only just posting my March Topbox review now. I actually received my April Topbox today and that was apparently the motivation I needed to get this post up, oops! For those of you who aren't aware, Topbox is a Canadian-based monthly beauty subscription service. It costs $12/month and offers free shipping. They send four beauty products per month, unless you decide to choose a special privé box (which I did not).

The products arrived in a purple foil package and were contained in a green organza bag inside the package. I believe you can opt to receive an actual box but I chose the more environmentally-friendly bag option. In the March 2016 Topbox, I received the following products:

Model Co. Shine Ultra Lip Gloss | I received this in the color "Fairy Floss" which is a light pink with a super-fine shimmer throughout. This is a full size product and claims to be non-sticky and long-lasting. I will say that it does feel nice and moisturizing on the lips and I love the packaging which includes a mirror on the side of the tube (brilliant!), but overall I am just not a fan of lipgloss for everyday use. Approximate sample value: $20 (full size).

MaskerAide All Eyes on Me Hydrating Eye Gel Patches | I haven't tried these yet but I love receiving any type of eye or face masks! I really have to give these a try and see if they help my puffy, sleep-deprived eyes. Approximate sample value: $6.25.

Nova Scotia Fisherman eXtreme Skin Care Lip Balm | As soon as I noticed this product in the bag, I was crossing my fingers that it would be in the "Sea Salt and Caramel" flavour, in which case it definitely would have been a win for me! However, I sadly received the "Fisher-mint" flavour and I am not a huge fan of mint. It feels nice on the lips, however, so I'll keep it on hand for Jordan to use. Approximate sample value: $2.60 (it is a full size lip balm but the website sells a larger size).

Estée Lauder Pure Color Intense Kajal Eyeliner Duo | I received this in the color "Blackened Black/Blackened Cocoa", which I am so happy about because those are the two eyeliner colors I wear on a regular basis. Apparently this product is no longer available which is a shame because I quite like it. Perfect for travelling too as you get two colors in one product! The colors are extremely pigmented and long-lasting. Approximate sample value: $20.58.

The March 2016 Topbox contained four products, including one full-size product. The approximate value of the box is $49 and overall I was pleased with what I received, especially the eyeliner. I apologize for posting this so late, but stay tuned for my April Topbox review which should be up soon!
