It’s that time of the month again, I picked a privé box and I’m so happy with this one!

I’ve experimented with Elizabeth Arden products before, so naturally when I found out that the April 2013 TopBox had this as a privé option – I was all up on that. Pardon my excitement.

Here’s a break down of what was in the box!

April 2013 TopBox – Elizabeth Arden Privé Box

Private Anti-aging Intensive Repair Daily Serum

The line lost, firmness found, luminosity returned. Full size 30 mL  for $275 

The serum smells nice, the color matches the orange-tan color in the image above. It has a slightly tacky texture once it starts to dry on the skin, much like the texture of Lancôme génefique. Naturally, I haven’t tried this enough to say that it gives results.

The only fine lines that I have been under my eye (yes, I’m having a quarter-life crisis and I’m starting to see the changes in my skin haha). This particular product isn’t meant for the eyes; it claims to improve the appearance of fine lines and “lifts” the look of the skin within 15 minutes.

Flawless Sponge-on Cream Makeup

Imperfections vanish. The skin is illuminated. Glow is recaptured. Full Size 19 g for $42 (1.9 g sample)

I just noticed that there is an instructional video about this product with Rebecca Restrepo, which you can see here.

I personally haven’t used a compact cream foundation since I stopped using the Revlon New Complexion One-Step Compact Makeup. A long while back, it was recommended to me by a frustrated salesperson at Shoppers when I had horrible acne in high school (moments which I prefer not to remember).

This product has mixed reviews, but I’m open to trying it for concealing spots since the sample is small.

Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing Mascara

Coats and curls. Lifts and Lengthens. Every last lash. Full size is 7 mL for $30 (3 mL sample)

The fiber wand of this mascara isn’t impressive or unique at first glance. I’ve tried it a couple of times and it applies as an everyday mascara should. It doesn’t clump, it lengthens your lashes and it adds just a bit of volume. It is easily removed with eye makeup remover.

I’m not particularly impressed, but it’s not a bad mascara.

All Gone Eye and Lip Makeup Remover

This two-phase formulation easily, gently removes even transfer resistant waterproof makeup. Full size is $24 for 100 mL (50 mL sample)

Lastly, I received the Elizabeth Arden eye and lip makeup remover. It has a decent rating on Makeup Alley (I frequently check reviews on there). I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s one of those removers that you need to shake to mix the 2-phases (clear and green liquids) together.

I feel it is important to add that you should always soak your lips with something, anything from Vaseline to makeup remover, to remove lipstick from the lips. People often swipe their lips with a dry tissue, but that harms your lips and does not remove lipstick efficiently.
