My March 2012 Topbox arrived yesterday and overall I’m pretty pleased. Let’s take a peak at what’s inside.
Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara sample. Full size retails for $24 and is exclusive to Sephora. I’ve heard great things about this mascara so I’m excited to try it. I love mascara samples!
Redken Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner. Two sets of sample packets. Full size shampoo retails for $15 and conditioner $17. Here again is another shampoo and conditioner set containing silicones and sulphates which I avoid in my hair care. I know there are a lot of people who are doing the same. I even put comments in the bottom of one of my last TopBox surveys saying I was tired of the amount of hand creams as well of the number of hair products containing ingredients I avoid. I guess we can’t win them all. At least this product is geared towards coloured hair like mine.
mark Gloss Gorgeous Stay on Lip Stain. This is full size (retail $12) and I received the shade . I really, really love this colour. It is a lovely high shine gloss that has a thick consistency yet doesn’t really feel sticky. I did not however experience any stain at all let alone a rich one as implied. After applying 3 times still nothing. It doesn’t have much lasting power. Still I love the colour.
mark Nailed It Trend Mini Lacquers. I think this is a full sized set of two mini lacquers that retails for $8. I couldn’t capture the gorgeous Violet Daze shade. It keeps showing up blue in pics when it is really a striking iridescent purple. Tickled pink is a lovely pale lilac pink. I applied these on my daughter and they seem like fairly average nail polishes. More than one coat needed for certain.
Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes. These are a sample packet of 7 wipes from a UK brand. Retails size of 25 wipes retails for $10.99. They are promoted to remove waterproof mascara but I haven’t tested them out yet.
The Topbox subscription is $10 per month plus tax. Head on over to their website to learn more.
Stay tuned to Perilously Pale for a chance to win the April 2012 Topbox!
