Topbox | Flare Beauty How-To Edition

So, yes this is a box that went on sale Black Friday of last year, but it was just such a great deal that I had to share! I haven’t pictured it here, but the original price of this Flare Topbox was $39.99, but on Black Friday this Topbox PLUS a limited edition men’s Topbox were collectively $50! Based on the contents of the Flare Topbox and how much I love Benefit’s Gimme Brow ($26.00 CDN) and the Stila Waterproof Eyeliner ($26.00 CDN), this was too good of a deal to pass up!

Benefit Cosmetics | Gimme BrowDSC_0403

Thoughts: I have been using this product everyday since I attended a Benefit event at Shoppers in the Fall. Gimme Brow was a new product at the time and as someone who NEVER pays attention to her brows, this mascara-like magic product has made me never want to go without them. I love this product and I was so grateful to have a spare!

Full size: 3.0g/$26.00 CDN

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Deborah Lippmann | Swagga Like UsDSC_0404

Thoughts: We have seen this duochrome before in other nail polish brands, but there’s nothing like having a Lippmann in our midst…

Full size: 15mL/$20.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

GlamGlow | Youthmud Exfoliating TreatmentDSC_0405

Thoughts: I have a little tub of this from a past Topbox and it doesn’t tingle all that much for me. It’s a clay mask that was a little drying for me, but did leave my skin feeling purified.

Full size: 0.5oz/$21.00 or 1.7oz/$76.00

I received: 0.5oz/$21.00 (full smaller size)

Kerastase | Lait Vital and Bain Satin 2DSC_0406

Thoughts: I am actually a fan of this line ever since purchasing a smoothing cream a few years back for taming flyaways without weighing my hair down. This is a shampoo and conditioner set that I hope to spoil my hair with later!

Full size: Lait Vital – 200mL/$45.00 Bain Satin – 250mL/$38.00

I received: Lait Vital – 75mL/$16.88 Bain Satin – 80mL/$12.16

Shu Uemura | Gloss Unlimited in Modular PinkDSC_0407

Thoughts: I feel like anything Shu is a score. I don’t know why. This is just a lipgloss is a super bright glossy pink, but I love having it.

Full size: 5.4mL/$30.00

I received: 2.38mL/$13.22

Stila | Stay All Day Waterproof Eye LinerDSC_0408

Thoughts: This is a felt tip eye liner which is one of my favourite types! I have been wanting to try this out so I am excited to see how it lasts through the day!

Full size: 0.5mL/$26.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Total Value of Flare Topbox: $135.26

Amazing value right? I mean, value is more than monetary since this number won’t mean anything if none of the products are useful to you, but I think the Glamglow mask is the only thing that I’m on the fence about. Everything else, especially the Gimme Brow are all things I would have bought anyway!

What do you guys think? Would you have jumped on this Topbox too?
