October 2016 Sephora Play Box Review

*Spoiler Alert! I’m showcasing the October 2016 Sephora Play Box today. The Sephora Play Box costs $10/month and you have to sign up to get invited.


What’s inside the October 2016 Sephora Play Box!

This month is called “The Cool Cut” and the bag says “Lipstix & Chill” and I was a bit confused this month. Tip if you get this box…read everything!


Christope Robin Regenerating Mask –  I was totally sure this was a face mask until I started this blog post but lo and behold it’s a hair mask! Good thing I read about it. This mask as Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil which sounds cool and it smells great. So hair…it goes on the hair! Full-Sized Price: $71.


Farmacy Skin Dew – I really need to start trying these hydrating sprays out. This one is “A versatile hydrating essence mist that tones the skin, restores radiance and sets makeup.” Full-Sized Price: $44


Mon Paris by Yves Saint Laurent  – Yves Saint Laurent reminds me of the ’80’s and this scent does smell nice. Very fruity and it comes in the cutest little spray bottle you’ve ever seen so 2 thumbs up for this one. Full-Sized Price: $122


Smashbox Always  On Matte Liquid Lipstick – I’ve tried this formula before and it’s a nice matte lipstick. This one is called Driver’s Seat. Full-Sized Price: $24


erborian Bamboo Creme – This creme is more of a gel and it smells really nice and earthy. It’s supposed to hydrate your skin. Full-Sized Price: $43

The Estée Edit Flash Photo Gloss – This product mystified me! I wasn’t sure if it went on your teeth or lips. It’s actually a white gloss that’s infused with “cool blue pearls” to bring out your smile. It’s supposed to smell like vanilla but my has very little scent. I did try it on and it looks like clear sticky lip gloss to me. Full-Sized Price: $20

Overall I give this month a 9/10 only because I was so confused! Good thing I didn’t put the Flash Photo Gloss on my teeth! I did feel like I got a lot of high-end product this month so that was good.
