Empties: November 2014

I have been very busy this month and will continue to be busy until end of the year. Today I want to share a quick post about the products that I finished this month.

In the Mail: Topbox November 2014

Today I want to share a quick unboxing post about this month's Topbox.

This is a C$12 monthly beauty subscription box with 4 deluxe samples.

My box this month with a value of C$22:
  • Benefit Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer - 0.04oz (full size 0.54oz for C$38) - value: C$2.81
  • Eyeko Black Magic Mascara - 0.13oz (full size 0.29oz for C$29) - value: $C13
  • UniqOne All in One Hair Treatment - 9mL (full size 150mL for C$19.95) - value: C$1.2
  • La Splash Nail Polish (12019 French Pink) - 10mL (full size 10mL for C$4.99) - value: C$4.99

I don't wear foundation, so I won't be using the Benefit Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer. The La Splash Nail Polish looks pretty, but the baby pink color isn't anything special. The nail polish packaging is really sturdy and nice, but even with the cap tightly sealed, I can smell the formula through layers of bubble wrap.

I am looking forward to trying the UniqOne All in One Hair Treatment and the Eyeko Black Magic Mascara. The value of this box for me is C$14.2, just above the C$12 subscription price.

Update (January 27, 2015): Reviews for Eyeko Black Magic Mascara and UniqOne All in One Hair Treatment.

Eyeko Black Magic Mascara
I adore the curling and lengthening effect of this mascara. The formula has a watery consistency and the flexible bristles coat every lash without clumps. Unfortunately this mascara irritates my eyes when I apply it to the roots of my lashes. I enjoyed trying it out, but I will not purchase the full size.

UniqOne All in One Hair Treatment

The scent is the only reason why I am giving it up. I like to apply this treatment to dry hair and it makes my hair smoother without making it look greasy. I really just cannot stand the scent.

Did you receive any subscription boxes this month?

Shoppers Drug Mart Holiday Beauty Gala

I recently checked out the Shoppers Drug Mart Holiday Beauty Gala event and today I want to share my experience.

The C$5 from the C$10 ticket price is intended for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and the remaining C$5 can be redeemed toward purchase of cosmetics, fragrance, or jewellery on the day.

Despite the advertised refreshments, I didn't see any at the event. I wasn't interested in booking a makeover, so the gala didn't feel any different from a typical shopping day at the store.
