Similar to Ipsy this is also a monthly subscription bag that is $10 and comes with 5 deluxe size samples (and even some full size). This bag also comes with a sample fragrance each month.
This subscription bag comes with products based of your PLAY! profile which you create when you first sign up. It also comes with the PLAY! Book with tips, tricks and beauty advise, the PLAY! PASS that you can redeem for 50 points in Sephora and a one on one tutorial, and the PLAY! DATE which is a monthly meet up to discuss tips and tricks for the products in the bag that month.
Lets get into this months bag!
I love that they are changing up the bag styles and materials! This one is a fun dark blue tie-die kind of feel with the theme on it “Beauty is my Spirit Animal”.
Now for this months items!
Buxom; Plumpline Lip Liner; Shade- Hush Hush/cinnamon Full Size Retail $17
I have always wanted to try a Buxom product and have been eyeballing their lip glosses for some time now but just haven’t spent the money and gotten one, so I was really excited to see this in the bag this month! This is a nice neutral nude that would go with almost any skin tone in my opinion. This lip liner comes with a brush on the other end to help feather out the edges of your liner. The formula is super creamy and I really enjoy how this feels on the lips!
Sephora Collection; Matte Perfection Powder Foundation; Shade- 14 Neutral Linen Full Size Retail $20
Getting samples like these in my subscriptions always makes me happy because then I can try it before I buy it! Especially when it’s something that is a high end product or expensive. First things I notice about this powder is that it’s very yellow for my skin tone. I am more of a pink undertone with my skin. When I applied it to my skin I also noticed that it almost made my foundation seem darker than it really was on my skin. Now I did use this over the top of a liquid foundation so the slight cakeiness can be expected when using it like that but I just wasn’t a fan of how that looked on my skin. I do want to give this a try on a “no make-up” make-up day to see how it sits on my bare skin. I’m not sure I would recommend this or even spend the money on the full size.
Murad; Invisiblur Perfecting Shield Broad Specturm SPF 30 PA+++ Full Size Retail $65
I have heard great things about this brand and the skin care products they have, so this was an awesome sample to get in the bag. Plus I always like to try out different primers for my oily/combo skin. This is a really nice primer, it has a nice slip when you first apply it so a little goes along way and then as you smooth it out over the skin it dries down. I will say I didn’t notice anything imparticularly different with my skin but I did notice my make up still looked good at the end of the day and didn’t separate as bad as it can on my forehead and around my nose. I’m hoping to use this more and get a better feel for how it works with my skin but I don’t know that it is worth the full size price tag.
Verb; Ghost Oil Full Size Retail $16
I wasn’t sure how I would like this because it is a hair oil and I already have an oily scalp so I was worried that this would just make a bigger mess but I was pleasantly surprised my hair needed this! Now I will start by saying I only used this from mid-strand to the ends of my hair and I was so surprised at how much this helped my damaged ends feel soft and healthy. I still have some bleach left on the ends of my hair from when I went from red to blonde (another story for another day if you interested) and my ends tend to get brittle and feel damaged, but after I applied this I was surprised at how soft they ends felt! I applied this on damp hair and just let my hair air dry and I’m on day two with a curl in my hair and it feels amazing! I have one other product from Verb that I really like as well so I think this would be one of the things I would look into getting a full size in-especially with my blonde hair.
Lancôme; Miel-En-Mousse Foaming Cleansing Makeup Remover with Acacia Honey Full Size Retail $40
This is another really nice product! Skin care I find hard to review especially if you haven’t had it for very long but this one I really liked! It foams up nicely when you massage it into the skin and even with the small sample size I feel like I will get a few uses out of it because I don’t need much to get my face clean. It did help remove the excess makeup on my face and had a really nice smell to it. Like other skin care products I am hopping to get some more use out of this so that I can see if it makes any sort of difference in my skin especially when it comes to removing excess make up. I wear almost a full face every day for work so I really need something that helps to get my skin clean every night.
Ouai; Anti-Frizz Hair Sheets Full Size Retail $18
This is our bonus item this week rather than a perfume! I am super excited to give this a try! The idea behind this product is really cool so that when it’s one of those frizzy hair days you can rub this all over your hair and it will leave hair shinny and smooth without static! This will be perfect on the windy days in town when there isn’t much moisture in the air and my hair has a mind of it’s own!
Well this concludes my Sephora PLAY! box for this month and my subscriptions for this month as well! I have officially had this subscription for a year now. I always said I would give it a year before I thought about canceling and so far this year they have been making some changes and have had some pretty nice products; so I am going to hang onto this one for awhile longer and decide later if this one might not stay around. Only time will tell!!
Thanks for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
