February 2013 “Regular” Topbox

At first I was pretty bummed that I didn’t get the Benefit Prive Topbox, but then I realized that the items that were offered I already had in full sizes or had tried before so it only seemed fair to let another lucky girl “benefit” from having that special Prive box. Like what I did there? Hehe. Instead, I received the regular Topbox which I absolutely loved! The goodies inside were right up my alley so I am nothing but smiles for the regular Joe February Topbox.

2013

Make Up For Ever Pro Finish DSC_0100

Multi-Use Powder Foundation that can be applied wet or dry for buildable coverage and a customized finish.

Thoughts: I have done a review on this foundation before and it has now become my holy grail foundation. I won’t use anything else and it gives me the most flawless visage. There is no going back for me.

Full size: 10g/$42.00

I received: 2g/$8.40

 

B.Kamins Nutrient Replacement Cream KxDSC_0101

This nourishing cream provides essential nutrients to improve skin’s appearance. Use for hydrated, healthy and brighter skin.

Thoughts: Oooh, this sounds like a nice moisturizer as it brightens as well as hydrates. This can be used as a supplement with other skincare products so I’m wondering if this can indeed be a standalone moisturizer.

Full size: 45mL/$152

I received: 15mL/$50.67 (Seriously???)

 

Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Ray of LightDSC_0102

Deborah Lippmann’s luxury line of award winning nail lacquers was created as a result of her working with some of the more iconic figures in fashion from Cher to Sarah Jessica Parker.

Thoughts: This is the VERY colour I wanted to get for myself, but decided to wait until a more deserving time. If you have seen swatches of “Ray of Light”, you will know that it is another ultra cool flakie sitting in a dark navy blue base. I have nothing like this in my collection and I AM SO HAPPY I GOT THIS!!!

Full size: 15mL/$20.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

 

KMS California Free Shape Quick Blow DryDSC_0103

For anyone who wants faster drying and heat protection.

Thoughts: I blow dry my hair all the time so I am always on the lookout for products that will protect my hair and of course dry it faster!

Full size: 200mL/$18.75

I received: 30mL/$2.81

Final value of February Topbox: $81.88

I find it hard to believe that the B.Kamins sample is $50! Did I make mistake? The Deborah Lippmann nail polish made this Topbox completely worth it for me. The fact that it was a colour I had been coveting makes this box 10x better. This regular Topbox turned into a complete winner for me!

  1. It is a great box. I wish I could have bought both of them! I am so greedy. Is the MUFE foundation the right colour for you? If so that would make a great little makeup bag addition. AND the Deborah Lippmann polish - it looks so cool with the red flakies in it.

    1. No it's a bit lighter, but shouldn't be too far off from my natural color.
      Isn't the DL pretty?? I cannot wait to wear it!
