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.

September 2016 Sephora Play Box Review

*Spoiler Alert! I’m showcasing the September 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 September 2016 Sephora Play Box!

I LOVE this months bag. It’s called “The Unbasic Basic” and it’s got some great products and you get a Sephora Play card that you can take to a Sephora store to get 50 additional points with a purchase.


Sephora Rouge Shine – This is the cutest little lipstick I have ever seen. It’s tiny but perfect for a purse! The color is N0. 14 Love Spell and it’s Made in France. Full-Sized Price: $12.50


Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation – I have a sample of this oil-free moisturizer and love it so getting another one is a nice bonus! Full-Sized Price: $38


Atelier Cologne Sud Magnolia – While this floral woodsy cologne smells good I’m just not that into in, but it’s nice if you are.  Full-Sized Price: $90


Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper – I am super excited to try out this Satin Black eyeliner from Kat Von D. Full-Sized Price: $20


Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel – I am also super excited to try out this clear conditioning brow gel! Full-Sized Price: $20


Living Proof Perfect Hair Day – This is the night cap overnight perfector. You apply to wet hair, leave it in all night then wash out in the morning. It’s not supposed to wreck your pillow either! Looks interesting. Full-Sized Price: $28

Overall I am giving this month a 9.8 only because I’m not crazy about the cologne. Otherwise I al thrilled with the selection this month.

August 2016 Sephora Play Box Review

*Spoiler Alert! I’m showcasing the August 2016 Sephora Play Box today.


The Sephora Play Box costs $10/month and you have to sign up to get invited. My invite took about a week and this is my second box. You also get a card that goods for 50 Sephora points with purchase which is pretty cool.

This month the theme is “The Eye Openers” and it has everything for your eyes.

Here’s what I got in the August 2016 Sephora Play Box!


Urban Decay Perversion Mascara – This is my favorite product. I always get excited about mascara because I rarely keep mine longer than 60 and I like to have a nice supply on hand. Perversion looks really nice. Full-Sized Price: $22.00


Sephora Contour Eye Pencil – This Taupe Shimmer pencil seems so small! Being a Sephora product it would have been nicer if it was a bit larger but it will get some use, it’s a nice pencil. Full-Sized Price: $10.00


Clean Reserve Parfum – This scent is way to strong for me. It’s a really bold clean scent but STRONG! Full-Sized Price: $90.00


Lancome Énergie de Vie The Smoothing & Glow Boosting Liquid Care – This one is going to my MIL. She love Lancome. It’s supposed to wake up your skin. Full-Sized Price: $55.00


Caudale Resveratrol Lift Eye Lifting Balm – I’m always willing to try new eye life products so I’m curious to check out this brand. Full-Sized Price: $62.00


Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow – The eye shadow is another favorite of mine. I love this shimmery copper color and will use this one. Full-Sized Price: $21.00

Overall I’d give this box an 8. I like that I got 6 products this month and the Urban Decay Mascara was awesome. I doubt I’ll use the perfume or Lancome product and I will they gave us a larger Sephora eye pencil, but still a decent box.
