topbox – november 2013 prive box – givenchy

For the past few months, there really hadn’t been many prive boxes that had caught my eye so I’ve been opting for the regular Topbox. I believe the last prive box I received was the Benefit one in February. So it’s been awhile.

I will admit that I was excited to see that Givenchy was an option when we received our November wish list email. And as I read more and more negative reviews on the regular November Topbox, boy, was I hoping that I would luck out with the Givenchy box and get it!

This past week, I received two purple Topbox packages. I will admit, I wasn’t too sure why I had two… until I remembered that I took part in the Chatelaine offer. I was on pins and needles as I was opening each package. The first one I opened was the Chatelaine Bonus Box (a separate post about this one later)… and the Givenchy Box!!! I was SO excited to see that I had the Givenchy box and I was so happy with everything that came with it. It is one of the brands that I would see and wonder about… but never actually bought.

1. Le Rouge Lipstick – 103 Brun CreatΓ©ur
This is the product in the sneak peeks on Facebook that really got my attention! I will admit, I was not a lip junkie until recently but I was really intrigued by this lipstick. Brun CreatΓ©ur is a dusty rose color, which is what I usually use anyways so that makes it perfect! Plus the size of this deluxe sample sized lipstick is perfect to keep in your purse for touchups throughout the day. Fantastic! It came in super cute packaging so I really had to share some pictures.

the details. retail: $38 CDN, $36 US for 3.4g (full size) – topbox sample is worth $16.76 CDN, $15.88 US for 1.5g.

Okay. So here is the deal. I have too much mascara. WAY TOO MUCH MASCARA. So at first I wasn’t to thrilled that I was getting another mascara, however, after reading up a little on it, I’m actually quite excited to try this one. It has a very interesting brush wand where the brush is made up of three balls. Plus, it claims it is a “4-in-1” mascara which will give you: volume, curl, length and conditions. I likely won’t try this soon (I’m still using a couple of different mascaras at the moment) but I will likely write a review when I do.

the details. retail: $35 CDN, $32 US for 8g (full size) – topbox sample is worth $17.50 CDN, $16 US for 4g.

3. Dahlia Noir – Eau de Toilette
This has a very nice flowery scent – and this coming from someone who isn’t a fan in the first place! It comes in a super cute bottle and is the perfect size for travel or to keep in your purse.

the details. retail: $80 CDN, $70 US for 50ml (full size) – topbox sample is worth $8 CDN, $7 US for 5ml.

4. Gentlemen Only – Eau de Toilette
As you can probably tell from the name, this is for men. πŸ™‚ It is a small foil packet so I have no idea what it smells like but I’m sure I’ll find out eventually. I will give this one to my fiance.

the details. retail: $67 CDN, $59 US for 50ml (full size) – topbox sample is a small foil packet.

I’m giving my November 2013 Givenchy Topbox a 5 out of 5 pixel star rating.
