You might be wondering why this is so late…well yet again this was the last box to come in and due to some glitch in shipping it took 17 days to get to me…#reasonsicontimplatecanceling
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 back!
This months theme “Make It Snappy” not really sure what this had to do with the products in the bag but we will get into that.
Urban Decay; Hi-Fi Lip Gloss; Shade- SPL Full Size Retail $20
This would be the definition of sample size! I have gotten other lip product samples they are always bigger than the ones I get in my Sephora PLAY! box. This one is tiny and I actually feel like it only has a few uses in it. But it is a fun gloss topper. It looks pink in the tube but doesn’t have that much pigment to it so it’s nice to put on top of different lip colors. There is quite a lot of glitter in these and it does make for a fun jazzed up look. I however don’t like the formula! It’s sticky and takes a lot to get an even layer on the lips. To think this was one of the highlighted things in my box this month…no much hope fore the rest of the items…
Make Up For Ever; Ultra HD Perfector Skin Tint Foundation SPF 25; Shade-#6 Warm Sand Full Size Retail Price $36
This is probably the most irritating item in the box this month because well as you can blatantly see in the photo- IT’S NO WHERE NEAR MY SKIN COLOR! When I opened this up and swatched it I was so disappointed because this isn’t even close to a shade I would wear even with a tan! So I can’t tell you much about this product because I can’t test it out. And honestly I don’t know that a skin tint is worth $36 for 1.01 oz of product in the full size. Lets move on…
IT Cosmetics; Bye Bye Pores Pressed Poreless Finish Airbrsh Pressed Powder Full Size Retail $29
I have gotten this product before in a different subscription and it’s an ok powder. I will say it’s not my favorite and I find it to be too powdery on my skin. It does set my under eyes pretty good but it’s not the powder I reach for and need to have. I’m also not the biggest fan of pressed powders I normally prefer loose powders to set my face. I will use this one for a little while but I don’t know that it will be something I reach for all of the time.
Fresh; Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask Full Size Retail $62
A turn for the better we got this Fresh mask! I really like getting mask products because it gives me a chance to try it out and see how it works with my skin and I’m not fully committed to a product that might not work. I haven’t had time to give this mask a try but I am really looking forward to it. The smell is really nice and is said to help with skin smoothing which I need right now coming out of winter. Let me know if you have tried this and if you like it!?
Perter Thomas Roth; Skin to Die For No- Filter Mattifying Primer and Complexion Perfector Full Size Retail Price $28
I did get a chance to try this out today as I am writing this post and I’m not totally sure of my thoughts on it just yet. I really like the feel and the smooth way it applied to my skin, however with the foundation I used today it seems to be separating around my nose. And of course the foundation I used isn’t my usual go to but is one I do use during the summer. I’m going to have to test this out more and see if it’s really something I like or if it’s a bust for my skin type. Only time will tell!
MIU MIU; MIU MIU L’eau Rosee Full Size Retail Price $81
We all know how I feel about perfume samples so I won’t drone on. Though it seems that this year they are alternating months with perfume samples and foil packet samples.
Well that concludes my Sephora PLAY! for April…to say the least I am less than impressed yet again… I had hope that they were stepping up their game but unfortunately that’s not the case. I am going to keep this subscription for now and hope that this was just a bad month.
Let me know what did you get in your Sephora PLAY! box? Also what other $10 subscriptions do you like that I could pick up to replace this one?
Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
