February 2013 Topbox: The Benefit Edition By Shanelle


It FINALLY arrived!!!! About a month ago topbox subscribers got a chance to bid on special topboxes and there was a Benefit box available , so naturally i jumped on the chance. Then I found out that it was a type of lottery to get the box you ask for, so I was a bit bummed. However, sitting in my mailbox today was a special topbox from Benefit EEEKKK!!!! It is a gorgeous pink celebrating the year of the snake.The box is fantastic and included an awesome assortment of little Benefit goodness.

First thing I discovered was the Dandelion Wishes kit. It came with a gorgeous pink face powder and a matching corally/pinky lipgloss.
I am saving this little duo for my trip to Edmonton, and will do a little review for you later 😉

Full size on both = $54
Value of sample=23.20


I also received a sample of the POREfessional. I have tried this before in my “How to look Gorgeous at Everything” kit and thought it was ok. I find this product similar to Hard Candy’s sheer envy, except for the price tag!

Full size = $34 | Value of sample= $11



Next up is my favourite little tidbit that I got and that was the little sample of Benetint. I <3 this product I put it on my cheeks and lips and it is amazing on my skin tone. It gives a natural stain look and it is a super easy stain to work with and to boot it smells fab!!!

Full size: $36 | Value of sample: $7.20

Total Moisture Facial Cream

Another little goodie was the Total Moisture Facial Cream from Benefit’s new skin care line. I have yet to try their face products but have heard both good and bad things about them. I am waiting on a trial kit I purchased from the states, to try out the entire skin care collection. I will keep this   little guy for travelling.

Full size: $42 | Value of sample: $7.74


Benefit Fine One-on-One face stick

Lastly I got a tiny card sample of the new Benefit Fine One-on-One face stick. I have actually tried this product before in a Sephora. It is meant to be a cheek, highlighter and lippy  all in one.Needless to say I wasn’t very impressed. The colours weren’t very flattering on my skin tone and I found them difficult to blend into my skin. I may be passing this little sample into a swap box, for someone else to give it a go.

Full size: $36 | Value of sample:$ .50


Total Value= $49.64

I totally loved this box, I am a Benefit freak and love a lot of their products. Lately I have been a little blah about topbox, but they blew me out of the water with this box. Bravo topbox,
I look forward to many more of these specialty boxes 🙂
