March 2012 topbox

My favourite box subscription has arrived!
They have the best customer service.
They actually read comments and feedbacks - unbelievable right?
Guess what!  They actually deliver on time.  Why can't the others do the same?
This month's theme is makeup again.

This month's box:

mark. - Stay On Lip Stain
Full size 1.5g @ $12 = sample size
Never heard of the company but it is nice to learn different cosmetic companies out there.  I like the applicator of the lip stain.  The colour is perfect on me.

mark. - Mini nail polish
Full size 2.7ml each @ $8 = sample size
The bottles are really cute.  The colours are pretty, great for any age group.

Make Up Forever - eye makeup remover
Full size 100ml @ $28, sample size 25ml @ $7
This will be my first product to try from Make Up Forever. Some people received the mascara which I don't need any more at the moment.  I have some I have to go through first.  Others received a Cargo eye shadow.  What did you get?

Redken - Shampoo
Full size 300ml @ $15, sample size 20ml (10ml x 2) @ $1 for both
Redken - Conditioner
Full size 250ml @ $17, sample size 20ml (10ml x 2) @ $1.36 for both
I will save these for later in the month since I will be dying my hair soon.  It is perfect timing :)

Simple Facial Wipes
Full size 25 wipes @ $10.99, sample size 7 wipes @ $3.08
Yeah!  I love bonuses & I saw these at Walmart and wanted to try them.

Total worth of this month's box is $32+

The Bottom Line
My experience with this month's Topbox - 5/5
Product received - 4.5/5
The surprise - 5/5
Favourite product received - mark. lip stain

  1. i saw that a lot of other people got the cargo eyeshadow but you got the makeup remover.. did you make a special request? (just curious)

    1. No, no idea why I received the makeup remover. However, when I filled out last month survey I mentioned that I dont want another mascara for the moment. I have too much that I want to use up first. They actually read my comment :)

    2. I got the makeup remover too and said I didn't want another mascara! But sadly I already tried that product and didn't work well to remove my waterproof mascara.

    3. I agree. I dont like the makeup remover. I had to massage it into my eyes to get it off. I think store bought one does a much better job at 1/3 of the cost...

  2. I hope I don't get another mascara...I filled out the survey saying I didn't want another one so hopefully they'll listen to me too!

  3. Yep, loved this box! Got the same exact things :) BTW Mark is a a part of Avon, geared towards younger women :) I am surprised at the quality, usually not a huge Avon fan

    1. I didn't know. I was trying to see who mark. was... It has been years since I bought anything from mark.

  4. I am still waiting for my box.
    Mark is part of the Avon catalog- I do not really consider them very "high end", but then looking at Avon recently their prices seem quite high and their products look better than a few years ago.

    I like to try high end and regular or natural products- so hopefully I will be pleased with my box.

    1. Yeah, over the years Avon has gone pricey. I have not bought anything from Avon for years so I don't know the quality of their products are. I have read from other bloggers' reviews that there are some products from Avon they like.

  5. I was thrilled with my box today. I got a mascara instead of the make-up remover. I said that I was into mascara on the survey so I guess they really listened! Very nice.

    1. Yeah!!! That is great. I am glad that they actually read the survey. What is the point of doing one when they don't read it.
