Topbox ~December 2012

My topbox has arrived to my house on last Sunday. Yes, it was a Sunday, so I was really surprised and happy :) But I was scared to open it because I saw the spoilers on facebook and many subscribers didn't received a nice topbox...

So here is my box :

China Glaze in shade "exotic encounters"        
Full size : 10-12$ (14mL) 

Chloé Eau de Parfum (mini sample 5mL)
Full size: 90$ (50mL) / 115$ (75mL)

Goldwell Bodyfying spray gel (mini sample 30mL)
Full size: 18.95$ (150 mL)

Ferro Cosmetics (mini sample)
Price: ?

Total value :  23.46$

I only love 2 items in my box: china glaze's nail polish and Chloé eau de parfum. Compared to the others topboxes that I have seen on facebook, I'm happy what I have received, so I think I shouldn't complain :)

Ipsy VS topbox in November

I should have done this post earlier but I was busy because of my exams and my catch-up on my studies after my vacation from Punta Cana on October.

So here is what I have received in my ipsy bag in November 2012:

*the main reason why I have subscribed to ipsy was all because of the Benefit's mascara that a lot of bloggers rave about :) I knew that they were going to give it to the first 1000 canadian subscribers so I quickly ordered mine. Ipsy always gives some sneak peaks at the beginning of the month before sending their bags which is a nice way to know what you will be receiving before purchasing it. So far, I know that next month's bag will contain a urban decay;s glide-on pencil zero and a nyx's eyeshadow pigments. (You can always go to their facebook page to verify what I just said)

my favorites in my ipsy bag are:

  • benefit's mascara
  • theBalm's meet matt(e) eyeshadow
  • Nailtini's nail lacquer in Millionaire

Price: 15$CAD

And this my november's topbox (I posted the same picture two weeks ago):

My favorites are:

  • benefit's mascara (it's the same one that I have received in my ipsy bag)
  • hand butter from cuccio naturale

Price: 13.56 $CAD

I personally like my ipsy bag more than my topbox because I think that it's more worth it. Topbox have deceived me all the time and it is only 1.44$ cheaper than ipsy's so why not pay 15$ to have a better box? 

*If you have noticed, I didn't compare theses boxes with Glossybox because Topbox and Ipsy look almost alike as a I see it.

Sephora Hauls

*This post is a collective haul from Sephora.*

So this is my online order :
~The shipping was a little bit long compared to my other experiences with ebay, sasa, etc...(I received it after 12 days) : 

I mainly made an order on sephora.ca because of this gift set that is unavailable in my area.

I purchased the following products just to have the free shipping :)

I finally exchanged my 500 points for something worth it :) 
The Nars kit contained a: Pro prime pore refining primer, pro prime smudgeproof eyeshadow base, a small velvet gloss pencil in new lover, and a small Orgasm blush.

I'm really excited to try it because I don't owned any of their products and I have heard good reviews on this brand in general.

I got this amazing bag of deluxe samples with the code ''party'' only available for Canadian residents (Unfortunately, it's already expired).

Finally, Sephora gave me a VIB tote and some mini samples:

VIB 20% off : 

I only bought myself a Hello Kitty perfume. Isn't the bottle cute? but it smells really good too:)

Black friday 12$ deals :

 Omg this bronzer smells just like chocolates and the brush is so cute and mini!

The last but not the least: SAMPLES :)

Glossybox : November 2012

I received my last glossybox that I exchanged with my glossydots on friday but I wasn't so excited like the first time because I saw some spoilers and when I know that some drugstore products will be inside the box, I was a little bit disappointed...Anyways I'm still happy with it (at least the size of the products is 5-10 times bigger than topbox's).

Products received: 

1-Nicole by opi Kardashian kolor holiday shades (15ml)    10.99$
2-Kryolan for Glossybox blusher in glossy pink (2.5g)    16.73$   
3-vitabath (170g)    18$
4-maybelline mny my gloss (9ml)    7.49$
5-curel hand & cuticle therapy cream (100ml)    3.99$
***The products #1-5 are all full size!!! :)

                                                        conditionner: 400ml/14.99$  

Total value: 62.76$

Topbox ~November 2012

Hi! I just received my topbox (version#1) and you will notice that this post is a bit empty because I have an exam tomorrow so I don't really have the time to blabla! (I'm sorry ><) I'm so stressed now! 

So this is what I got:

Overall, I REALLY love my topbox! I can't wait to try the benefit's mascara that I have been waiting for so long! :) Have a nice day <3

My first topbox : October 2012

Omg I finally got my first topbox! Canada Post came at my house at 6:15pm (so late..) I'm super happy right now!! I was on the waiting list for about 6 months! If you're still on that list, be patient because it's worth it! :) A week ago, I didn't know if I should continue subscribing to glossybox because I'm still a full-time student who doesn't work so two subscriptions for me is a bit too much. But now, since glossybox is increasing the price, it made my choice. I will unsubscribe in november after using my 1000 glossydots. It's a bit ridiculous to pay 21$ each month because we are mostly receiving drugstore products in most of the boxes. I might changed my mind if glossybox is willing to put more high-end products in the upcoming boxes..

anyways, here is what I received in my Topbox :

Just to let you know, I got version #1 and I'm a bit disappointed because compared to others versions, some people got a Stila primer pot and I would like to try it. I don't know how you think but don't you think that a facial sheet mask that costs 4.99$ is a bit expensive? My favourite facial sheet mask has always been My Beauty Diary (from a taiwanese brand) and it doesn't cost more than 13.60$US/box of 10 facial sheets masks on sasa.com. I'm sure you will fall in love after trying those masks! (BTW, sasa is having a promotion again: you only need to spend 29$US to enjoy the free shipping!)

Sweet delight divalicious September Sample Box

Hi everyone!
I quickly received my Sweet delight divalicious Sample Box that was sold out in 57 mins when it came out. It costed me 26$ CAD.
Here are the samples that I got:  
Some jewellery from (left to right) The Curious Cupcake, I Candy Crystals and Spritzy Fitzy.
My thoughts: Sincerely, I don't like any of the jewellery they gave me but I won't throw it away. I'm not sure what I will do with all that...
2 scented pencils made from 100% recycled newspapers in the scents "cinnamon" and "black cherry":
My thoughts: I don't really use pencils anymore so I think I will give it to my sisters:)
Some candles from Gammy's Beezwax Candles and Gold Canyon, a mini soap from Century House soaperie and lip balms
My thoughts: I love thoses candles! It smells so good :) And I can't wait to try the solid perfume. I got it in the scent: Fresh n Free. The only thing that I don't like in this picture is : the carnival lipstick from Monaco International. The color that I got is purple mixed with some white ? ....

Next, I got a full size (120 ml) of post epilating spray from NISIM KALO, a body lotion from California Body Care, some samples of skin care from Simply Natural and an eye cream from Renu Derma.
My thoughts:  OMG I just checked the price of the post epilating spray and it costs 57.40$ CAD on their website! I only paid 26$ for the box so let's say it was really worth it:) I really hope that it works on me because who doesn't want to be hairless? I will be trying it very soon on one of my leg and I will keep you updated! If you want some description of the product, click here.
 Finally, I got some samples of lotion from Spa ressource and some hair products from frizz-ease and Sister's Keeper Products.

My thoughts: I can't wait to try all these but the only thing I don't want to try is the Dip Hair and Body moisturizer. Maybe it's because of the packaging and the smell of candies that freaks me out..

Overall, I really like my box (especially because I got a post epilating spray from NISIM KALO) and I will repurchase another box on november :)

I love PARIS <3 C'est définitivement mon amour!

I love free samples!

I got this a few days ago from P&G :)

My jewelry organizers

I bought some cute earring/jewelry organizers on ebay last month because I couldn't find any of these in montreal :( It took about 2 weeks to receive it but it was worth the wait :)

It didn't cost me more than 20$ for these two organizers! :)

Glossybox: September 2012

What I received in my glossybox :

Left: B.Kamins maple body lotion (12ml) WORTH 2.75$
& B.Kamins lip balm spf 20 (4ml) WORTH 5.60$
*<3 : 4/5
Right: mini Dove deodorant (17g) WORTH 1.50$ (it's a good size for travelling)
**<3 : 3/5
Wella professionals mirror polish shine spray FULL SIZE (40 ml) WORTH 12.99$
**<3 : 3/5 (I prefer to get the serum one)
Last but not the least: NYX cosmetics: the Crimson amulet collection  FULL SIZE worth 25$
**<3 : 5/5 (This palette has EVERYTHING you need to be pretty! )
This is my favourite box by far:)  Glossybox is getting better and better as a lot of you may notice. We used to get drugstore items and there were not a lot of makeup :( I was about to cancel my subscription but since they improved a lot, I changed my mind:)
