Topbox | November “Estee Lauder” Edition

November was another month where I chose not to go with the regular Topbox, but with one of the special edition ones. For November, I decided to try the “Estee Lauder” Topbox as I have not tried any skincare from this brand yet and the perfume also sounded like a scent I would enjoy!

Modern Muse Eau de ParfumDSC_0021 (2)

Experience the new fragrance that captures your style, your confidence, you creative spirit. An alluring contrast of sparkling florals and sleek, sensual woods. A Modern Muse is memorable, a force of creative energy, a true inspiration to others.

Thoughts: I really love this size of perfume sample. It’s only 2.9mL, but it’s double what you get in those little 1.5mL sample bottles and gives me a much better idea of whether a scent and I get along. You really have to smell this for yourself as the description is more about the marketing, less about what it really smells like, but it’s definitely a woman’s scent. Not a matronly one. I envision a career woman wearing it and looking absolutely in charge!

Full size: 30mL/$65 or 50mL/$90 or 100mL/$115

I received: 2.9mL/$3.36 (at least)

Advanced Night RepairDSC_0023 (2)

Helping skin maximize its natural nightly renewal like never before, slows down the look of premature aging, dramatically reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles and significantly improves the appearance of skin radiance and evenness of skin tone. Apply on clean skin before your moisturizer.

Thoughts: So this stuff is pretty pricey which is exactly why I would like to test it out first! The price of this sample alone paid for the Topbox! The sample is fairly generous and is enough for about a week. I wonder if I will be glowing once the week is up?!

Full size: 30mL/$72 or 50mL/$105

I received: 7mL/$14.70 (at least)

Perfectionist [CP+R]DSC_0024 (2)

Our most comprehensive wrinkle lifting treatment ever – begins to amplify new collagen production in just 2 hours and virtually reverses the daily visible effects on lines and wrinkles after 4 weeks.

Thoughts: Another pricey product I am grateful to be able to try through Topbox! I don’t have huge wrinkles and from this product description I don’t know if I will benefit from it…

Full size: 30mL/$78 or 50mL/$112

I received: 7mL/$15.68 (at least)

Double Ended Kajal Pencil in Blackened Black & Blackened CocoaDSC_0025 (2)

Creamy pencil, intense colour, creates a smouldering look. Glides on velvety smooth, blends easily. Apply on inner rim of eyes for a smouldering effect or use as a liner along the lash line and softly smudge over lids to intensify the smoky look.

Thoughts: When I realized this was both a black and a brown liner I was VERY happy. These are indeed very creamy and in the two colour that I think most women use the most often.

Full size: $25/pencil

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Total value of Estee Lauder Topbox: $58.74

For $12, I’m very happy to get a chance to try some otherwise very expensive products! The pencil is something I cannot wait to use as black and brown eyeliner is something I use on a daily basis. I feel like I will really enjoy everything in this Topbox and I’m super happy I “wished” for it!
