Julep Introductory Box - Bombshell

This week I received my introductory box from Julep! Guess how much I paid? 1 penny plus $3.99 for shipping. After taking a quiz online, I chose the bombshell intro box as I was attracted to the colours. After approximately 12 days, I received the box all the way from Seattle!

 I received Gloria, Viola, Julep Essential Cuticle Oil and two pots of glitter for the nails. I sampled both colours tonight and I liked Viola. It is a deep, dark purple which appears almost black. I didn't like Gloria that much though. It was just your average pink colour. I am excited to try the glitter though. 
After this first box, I don't know if I would pay full price for Julep monthly. Usually, it is $20 for three polishes, plus a bonus item or two. If you want your introductory box for 1 penny, use the promo code COLOR2012. Don't forget to use 6257251 as the invitation code! 


Topbox November 2012

I've recently became a big fan of beauty boxes. I have signed up for 5 different boxes (having a credit card,the internet, and an addiction made my balance go way down) and intend on posting reviews for each for these boxes.

In case you are not familiar, Topbox is a subscription beauty box. Each month, we are sent 4 samples of deluxe products. The beauty of this service is that it allows you to try new things, without the hefty price tag involved. If you like a product, then you know you can buy the full size product on their online store or other places.

Topbox has just become $12 monthly, or $13.56 with tax and shipping included. They JUST increased their price, unfortunately, and for the past year they were $10 monthly, or $11.30 with tax and shipping. Fortunately, this $2 price increase is not substantial, and the variety of products they deliver has proven to be worth it the increase. This months box is the last box priced at $10.
Anyway, without further ado, here is this months box! I got box #2

  • Pandora's Nail Polish and Perfume Duo
  • Benefit's They're Real Mascara
  • Cuccio Naturale Butter Lotion

 Overall, I was very pleased with this months box. I have been curious to try this mascara, and the nail polish and perfume duo is such an interesting idea! I don't have that colour of polish so I'm glad to receive it. The lotion also seems awesome. It has such cute packaging and the ingredients seem toxin-free.

Price: $11.30
Value: Nailpolish and perfume: $24.50 + Mascara (full size: $29 for 8.5 g. Sample size: 3 g) + $10.23 + Lotion (Full size = $18.95 for 240 g. sample size: 24 g) + 1.90 = $36

Great value, although this is additional information for you guys. I am more interested in the quality of the products as opposed to 'worth'.
