Eyeko Black Magic Mascara (4ml deluxe sample, $12)
Designed for after-hours seduction, our ultimate mascara combines three key elements to create drama, volume and curl, packaged into our iconic squeezy tube. Our new curvaceous brush lifts, curls and volumises for supreme lash perfection with a water-resistant, carbon black finish. We use a unique conditioning formula that blends key ingredients Keratin and Shea Butter for instantly transformed lashes and superior staying-power that's easy to remove.
This squeeze tube is kind of genius. Finally you can get all the mascara out of the tube! This sample is about half a full size version.
Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Caplet Serum (5ml, $12)
This sheer lightweight liquid serum with micro-caplets activates when dispensed, providing a refreshing burst that initially clings to skin then dries to a smooth weightless finish. Use to help reinforce skin's essential moisture barrier, even skin tone, retexturize, and reduce the appearance of first signs of aging. Rejuvenates the look of tired skin for a more energized complexion.
What's the deal Topbox? I received this same sample last month.
Benefit Stay Flawless 15-hour Primer (1.18ml, $2.80)
Take flawless into overtime! This instant PRO-long primer acts like a magnet to lock on your foundation for up to 15 fresh and flawless hours. The invisible stick-primer glides directly onto skin for optimal wear and a natural-looking finish.
Earlier in November, Topbox promised to include a Benefit product in every regular Topbox if the Benefit Canada Instagram account reached 17,000 followers. The goal was reached. I expected a bonus Benefit product this month. When I received my bag and it only included the usual four products, I went back to the post. Looks like I misread it. They didn't promise an extra sample. They only promised that one sample in the regular box would be Benefit. Chances are one of the samples was always going to be Benefit, regardless of how many IG followers Benefit Canada received. I wonder how many other people fell for this sneaky trick.
