Each month I look forward to receiving my Play! by Sephora Box. I love that I get to try out a lot of products/brands that I have never heard off for only $10. This month’s theme is “The Cool Cut”. This months box features several products that are up and coming in the beauty world.
What is Play! by Sephora? It’s a $10 a month beauty subscription service with five samples and one perfume sample each month. All of the brands are carried at Sephora. I love this because Sephora has a lot of high-end brands that I would love to try out; however, sometimes spending the money to try those products can be pricey. Another great thing about the box is that it comes with a pamphlet that tells you all about the products and how to use them. Another bonus that you get with the box is a Play! pass which lets you earn 50 extra Beauty Insider points with any purchase.
What I received this month:
Smashbox Always on Matte Liquid Lipstick in Driver’s Seat l (Full size $24// $10.00 value)// I love Smashbox products and was really excited to receive this lipstick. I am not a huge fan of matte lipsticks because some can be really drying. This formula is quite opposite of that. It’s very creamy and not drying at all. It doesn’t sit into the lines of your lips which is another big thing for me. I hate having dried out looking lips. Not cute! The shade is a warm nude with a hint of red undertones. Really pretty shade because it’s not overly nude. It also had really great ingredients such as jojoba, apricot, and sunflower oils which help the finish not be overly drying.
NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Belle (Full size $24) // This is the first time I have heard of this brand and I must say I am very impressed with the formula. I swatched it and it went on more like a gloss. It’s very hydrating. It wears up to six hours. The shade is a plum nude. Really pretty shade as well.
Too Cool For School Yellow Mellow Cream (Full Size $36// Value $4.30)// This product is so interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever had a beauty product quite like this. It’s a 5 in 1 multitasking cream made with egg extracts and collagen fibers. It works as a serum, priming moisturizer, eye cream, neck cream and sleeping mask. I am excited to give this a try because it is said that it tightens the appearance of pores, keeps skin looking healthy and firm and encourages the production of collagen.
VERB Leave-In Mist (Full Size $14// Value $1.75)// I love the way this mist smells! I can’t wait to use this product because it helps detangle/moisturize your hair, as well as keeps it strong. It also protect hair from heat. I am all for products that keep my hair moisturized.
Skin INC Pure Revival Peel (Full Size $//Value $4.68)// This product can be used as a primer, exfoliater and a peel. It helps remove dead skin and make you have a brighter complexion. One of the active ingredients in the peel is AC-11 which is derived from cat’s claw (a tropical vine that grows in the Amazon). When AC-11 is applied to the skin it is known to help gently exfoliate and care for environmental and sun damage.
Tom Ford Orchid Soleil (Full Size $82// Value $2.47)// I’m not a fan of this perfume. It had hints of spice and exotic florals. I enjoy floral scents but I’m not sure that floral and spices go well together. Maybe that’s just me!
Total Value of box: $47.20
