Am I the only person who didn’t know Sephora had a subscription box?!
If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you would know I was subscribed to Ipsy Glam Bags for months and I would do reviews each month. I was staring to get bored of the products that Ipsy was sending, so when I saw the Play Box on Instagram I immediately looked it up on Google.
For the same price as Ipsy, only $10 a month, I decided to cancel my Ipsy subscription and subscribe for Sephora’s makeup box. I am so happy that I did! The August box is my second from Play, sorry I didn’t review the first!
First of all, the box it comes in is adorable with black and white stripes! When you first open the box, you get a pamphlet with 50 free rewards the next time you are at a Sephora store.
When you open the pamphlet, you find all the information about the products and tips on how to use them.
Like Ipsy, you get a little makeup bag or pouch with each box. This month the bag says “Wink outside the box” with some winking eyes. Last month was a cute popsicle for summer.
The first item I pulled out was the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. I love trying new mascaras! I am pretty sure I haven’t tried the Perversion mascara yet, but I know Urban Decay has amazing mascaras that I have loved in the past.
The next product I received was the Sephora Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear in Love Affair. I am so excited to try this waterproof eyeliner. The pretty plum color is great for a colorful smokey eye.
Next is Make Up For Ever’s Artist Shadow in I-544. This color is going to look so beautiful with the Sephora eyeliner, mentioned above. I have never tried Make Up For Ever eye shadows but I have heard the are extremely pigmented.
I love trying out new eye creams. This Algenis Eye Renewal Balm is suppose to help reduce dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles. While I don’t suffer with most of those, I believe it is important to start protecting your skin early.
I know Lancome has great makeup, but I never tried their skin care. This Smoothing & Glowing Liquid Care Moisturizer is infused with goji berries and lemon balm to help your skin. I can’t wait to try this instead of my normal moisturizer.
Along with the 4-5 products you receive, you will always receive a perfume to try out. This month was the Clean Reserve Warm Cotton scent. I love clean and fresh scents, so this scent is right up my alley.
So far, I am loving my Sephora Play Boxes and can’t wait to see what the September box has in store, stay tuned for my review of that box. Again, it only cost $10 a month!
Let me know what your favorite subscription box is, I would love to try some new ones.
