Eyeko London Fat Eye Stick  $15 CAD
As far as I can tell this is a version of the Eyeko Me & My Shadow Sticks. I could only find this exact product on other subscription box pages like Birchbox and Glossybox so I wonder if it’s exclusive? Topbox didn’t even have a price for this eye stick. Regardless, this product is pigmented, creamy, and blends out easily with your fingers or a brush. It’s a twist up pencil which is great because I hate sharpening makeup pencils.

Revlon Professional Leave In Conditioner Spray $0.78 C
It breaks my heart when I get Revlon hair products from Topbox because I’ve loved them all but its so inconvenient to buy them. It says buy at “professional salons” and I’m not quite sure which ones to go to. This little blue bottle is so cute!

Jor’el Parker Fango Mud Mask $5.15 C
Topbox lists Harvey Prince as the website to buy this mask but all I can find is this Harvey Prince Fango Mud Mask with suspiciously similar packaging but no mention of Jor’el Parker. Maybe it’s a brand within Harvey Prince? Anyways, this mask sounds fantastic and I’m excited to try it.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage City Smart SPF 50 Lotion (sample size) $10.60
I get this brand a lot from Topbox. I think it has something to do with my Beauty profile so I went in and altered it so maybe that will change. The full sized version of this is only 40 ml and costs $85. Thats ridiculous! There are lots of great sunscreen lotions out there that don’t break the bank like this one. Elizabeth Arden samples are so small I can’t get a good impression of them before they’re gone.

Value

My Topbox had a value of $31.53 CAD. I don’t really consider the sunscreen of any real value to me, I doubt I can even coat my whole face with it. There’s no way I consider it worth $10 even if the full sized version is $85. I LOVE the Eyeko Fat Eye Stick and I’m happy with the revlon spray and mud mask!

What did you get in your Topbox this month? Thanks for reading!

  1. I love the Eyeko shadow sticks! I think these ones are being cleared out. I got the same one in my fall Luxe Box and saw they were being discounted by most sites. I got the same shade too! It’s so pretty and it’s so easy to use too which is a bonus!

    1. Oh that makes sense, I was trying to find the product everywhere and couldn’t find it. I would totally buy more if they were available!
