Sephora Play Review – May 2016

My daughter has taken over my Ipsy subscription and I’m very excited that last month I was finally off the waitlist for Sephora Play! Like Ipsy, Sephora Play is a monthly beauty box that delivers deluxe samples to your door step for $10/month. The samples are from the same prestige brands that they carry in the store. Along with the samples, you receive a Play Book with helpful tips, a Play Pass to redeem in store for a free 1:1 tutorial + 50 extra bonus points and a collectable makeup bag. The only downside is that it’s not customizable like other services, but for me, that’s okay! Here’s what I got in my May Play box!

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick.The Kimchi – Shocking Pink shade looks a little bright but is actually very pretty on. It’s creamy texture glides on and it’s long lasting too!

Verdict: 


Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial. I used this product a few winters ago and was a huge fan. The night cream/mask combo evens out your skin tone and brightens your complexion! 

Verdict: 

Briogeo Dont’ Despair, Repair! This is a deep conditioning mask for hair to restore hydration and help protect your hair from future damage. It does a good job conditioning but I didn’t see any difference between this and my other conditioners. 

Verdict: 🆗

TARTE Tartiest Lip Crayon. The Latergram mauve shade is a versatile neutral. The sample size is very thin so you have to be careful applying as it’s easy to break.

Verdict: 

Atelier Orange Sanguine Cologne. I’m pretty picky when it comes to fragrance but this one smells divine! It light and fresh!

Verdict: 

Origins Maskimizer Skin Optimizing Mask Primer. I didn’t even know mask primers existed. It preps, primes and get’s your skin ready for a mask. It also came with two mask samples, the Origins Charcoal and Overnight masks. It helped spreading the mask on but I don’t know if it’s worth the extra step.

Verdict: 🆗

The Play Book, full of tips and tricks, folds out and looks like a poster:

Overall I loved this box and am looking forward to getting the next one this month! If you’re thinking about trying a new beauty subscription, I think you will like Sephora Play! Click here to sign up!
