Unboxing Topbox October 2012

I was just about to post this month's box (or tube, it really is confusing what I should call it!) when I realized belatedly that I had (once again) forgotten to post the last month's! And to think I was so excited to write about it because it was my first Topbox. Life just got in the way and it kept getting pushed back to the point where I'm posting it mid-October. Nonetheless, at least you get two posts in one day out of it! Now, I had pretty high hopes for this month's box because I had filled out the beauty profile and even took the survey that is sent at the end of each month. I was hoping that my answers would be taken into consideration with respect to the kind of samples I'd be getting. Not that last month's was a bust. Anyway, let's see how I fared this month, shall we?

I chose the eco-friendly option which gave me this bare tube (and the option to decorate it myself if I wanted to!).

I wonder what goodies await underneath the purple tissue?


Right out of the box!

Oh my, yay! 
I've been wanting to try this but kept getting put off by the price so I'm really glad to get it!

How-to and ingredient list.

 A 1.5mL version of the Stila click pen lipglosses; not bad at all!

Raspberry sounds good.

Skincare from Spain.

Two vials of the serum (in the boxes) and an eye cream.

Box information.

I was ready to give this a go when I read...'snail secretion'! Guess my mom's getting these, after all.

Always good to have a clear expiry date for skincare products.

What the glass vial inside looks like out of the box.

Info at the back of the eye cream tube.

What's this? An 'eye shadow palette'..?

Back of the 'palette'.

 The inside of the 'palette'.

Inset of the look details. I like that they included this.

A closer look at the eyeshadow. 
These will probably be good for a couple uses at most, but I still think it's a decent sample to try out all the shades before plunking down the $$$ for the actual palette.

Information card for all the samples.

This month's loot!

What can I say? I'm still pretty pleased with the samples I got this month. I've had MaskerAide sheet masks on my wishlist since I read about them after I tried a couple Korean brand ones that just felt amazing on. The $4.99 price tag per mask is a bit steep for me though, especially when I can get a two-pack of an Asian brand for just a dollar more. But we'll see just how good these are! Now, I'm not a big lip gloss fan as I like my tinted lip balms too much, but it's always nice to try something different, right? The eyeshadow 'palette' seems like a really cool concept for me. It's rare that you get to try eyeshadow (actually using it on your eyes, not just swatching it on the back of your hand) so I definitely appreciate this card palette idea. As for the Spanish skincare, the idea of putting anything on my face that has to do with snails has me recoiling in horror, so these I'll happily pass on to my mom. 

Considering value for price, the sheet mask alone is valued at $4.99. The Stila lip glaze should cost about $4 as you can purchase a trio set like this of the same size for $12. The serums can be purchased in a set of seven for $59 so each box costs roughly $8.43, while the 3mL eye cream sample would cost about $14.50 (compared to the full sized 15mL going for $72.50). Even without considering the eyeshadow 'palette', the total price for all the other samples already come out to $40.35! More than covering the box cost of $11.30! Pretty good deal, eh? Suffice to say, I'm happy with my October Topbox.

Happy weekend! Mine promises to be one filled with errands but I'm hoping to spend time with the Cutie Pie. How's yours looking? If you're also subscribed to Topbox, how'd you like your samples this month? Among the samples I got for October, which one would you use first?


  1. Hahhahaah, what a meanie! You don't want the Spanish skincare and yet you are passing it your mom. ahahhaha....So I take it you don't eat suso?

  2. Gasp! I am jealous that you got the Stila gloss!

  3. It's my first time seeing this variation of the box. I'm very happy you shared it!

    Because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's impulse to love, idolize and look after you with all his heart...

    =====> 12 Words Will Fuel A Man's Desire Impulse

    This impulse is so hardwired into a man's brain that it will make him try harder than ever before to do his best at looking after your relationship.

    In fact, triggering this mighty impulse is so essential to achieving the best possible relationship with your man that the moment you send your man a "Secret Signal"...

    ...You will immediately notice him expose his soul and mind for you in such a way he haven't expressed before and he'll identify you as the only woman in the universe who has ever truly understood him.
