What do you have planned this weekend? Something romantic? Something…
It has been a year since I was a member of Topbox. So on a whim, I decided to join up again! This month, I opted for the regular Topbox to get a feel for the products they are carrying now. This one contained 4 products, with a chance to add-on a full product for $10 (I paid the money and it never arrived, refunded fully though!).
Kinetics Nail Polish in Crazy Daisy – This warm hot pink nail polish was opaque in 1 coat, but it went on a bit thick and ended up bubbling.
Here it is on my ring finger. It extremely glossy, so had I been paying attention and used a thinner coat, it would probably be perfect! This is a full size bottle.
$9 a bottle, available at KinecticsNails.com
Elizabeth Arden UNTOLD fragrance sample – It starts out fruity and wears down to a light and delicate white flower scent with a hint of musk. Very feminine. Not my thing but definitely a nice perfume.
Full size $75-100. Available at Shoppers, The Bay.
Estee Lauder Double Ended Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara and Pure Color Gloss in Rock Candy – Not sure why anyone would need a mascara and a lipgloss in one container, but hey.. why not!
Full size for either is $26. Available at EsteeLauder.ca
The mascara brush is fairly typical and my lashes were a bit thicker. Nothing spectacular but not bad at all.
The gloss was a nice sheer pink with some shimmer to it. Wand was average, fairly thin.
The gloss gives a nice sheen and it is VERY buttery. No grainy texture from the shimmer either. I quite like it!
Clinique Superprimer Face Primer – This is a lightweight and oil-free primer that reminds me a lot of the oil-free Smashbox primer I have. It’s a white creamy texture and does a pretty good job and keeping my makeup on all day.
Full size $29 CAD. Available at Clinique.com
OVERALL: Although I am not in love with any of these products, other than the gloss, I can appreciate the value. For about $14 CAD (with taxes) this is a great value and opportunity to test new products!
Sign up for Topbox. I think the waiting list is only about a month right now.
This is not a referral link… they don’t do that.
