In the Mail: Topbox October 2015

This month kicks off my second year of Topbox subscription. Today I want to share what I received in this month's box.

Topbox is a monthly Canadian beauty box subscription service with four deluxe samples for C$12 + tax per month (shipping inclusive).

My box for an approximate value of C$45:
  • Cuccio Nail Lacquer (Bologna Blush) - 13mL (full size 13mL for $4.21) - value: $4.21
  • Delectable Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream (Coconut & Cream) - 60mL (full size 118mL for US$12) - value: US$6
  • Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara - 4mL (travel size 4.8mL for C$14) - value: C$11.67
  • Starlooks Gem Pencil (Ultra Violet) - 2.4g (full size 2.4g for US$16) - value: US$16

I have previously tried a sample of the Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara as it was included in the Sephora birthday gift last year. The brush is too big for my liking and the formula doesn't wear well on me. I will pass on this new sample since this mascara does not work for me.

What did you receive this month?
