We all know I am in LOVE with Topbox. The $12 monthly Canadian beauty subscription box (FREE shipping!!!) that sends you 4-5 beauty samples. I especially love the option to swap out the regular month’s box for a “Prive Box“.
A Prive Topbox is a box of samples from only one brand. Each month you will be emailed a Wish List so you can “wish” for the boxes you are interested in. Due to limited quantities no member is guaranteed a Prive Topbox. If you do not get the Prive Topox you will be sent the regular Topbox.
The Prive boxes can contain full size items or a number of samples. Past Prive boxes: 2 full size Kerastase hair products, Benefit Cosmetics sample box, Elizabeth Arden sample box, Eyeko sample box, Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real sample box … etc. You get the idea, the Prive boxes can be unreal!!!
Up to this point, I had not yet picked a Prive box. I have enjoyed seeing what mix of samples are in the regular Topbox. The regular Topboxes have been very good to me!! This month (January 2015) I couldn’t resist requesting the Vasanti Prive box because it looked amazing. I’m so glad that I ended up receiving it!
The Vasanti Prive Topbox included a full size Luminous Cream Blush in Pinnacle (Retail $20 CAD) and a full size Love Brights Gel Matte Lipstick in True Love (Retail $19 CAD).
I’m just starting to wear cream blush, so I thought this would be the perfect color to help build my collection (I admit, I did some research on Vasanti before I officially requested the Prive Box). The blush is so buttery and smooth, the texture is flawless. The blush is buildable and blendable, making a variety of looks effortless from a little flush to full-on glam. The light pink shade is delightful with the perfect amount of dewy sheen (note: NOT glitter).
The Love Brights lipstick. Where do I start with this one? First the packaging, BEAUTIFUL. And it has a good weight to it (I really hate cheap plastic packaging, give me a heavier metal tube, any day!!!). The lipstick itself has the words “Vasanti” carved into the side of the stick – I love this extra touch!! The color I received, True Love, is a bright glorious red. The formula is moisturizing (that can be sooooo hard to find in a matte lipstick!) This lipstick is truly matte and does not crease or settle on the lips, I found it continued to look “fresh”. The staying power was impressive! It didn’t budge for hours.
I am thrilled with this Prive Topbox. The value of this box was $39 CAD! I’m so glad I took the risk and gave up the regular box. I definitely would repurchase both of these products and am definitely interested in looking into other Vasanti products.
