So it's time for another look inside this month's Play! by Sephora. I'll get straight into it.
This box is: "The Eye Openers"
Lancome: The Smoothing & Glow Boosting Liquid Care
Algenist: Complete Eye Renewal Balm
Urban Decay: Perversion Mascara
Sephora Collection: Contour Eye Pencil 12 hr Wear
Make Up For Ever: Artist Shadow in 6P01
Clean Perfume in Reserve
I'm gonna say right off the bat this box was lack luster for me. Mainly because I seen a lot of repeats of point perks or "deluxe samples" you get for free as promotion when you spend $25. So that makes me a little disappointed. If I'm paying $10 a month even though I know that's not much for a box of samples. Still I would like them to be different and not something I've seen a lot of been offered as a promo. Maybe one or two things but not all of them, you know what I mean? I kinda feel like this box was a waste of $10 is what I'm saying. Anyway lets get into this:
Lancome The Smoothing and Glow Boosting Liquid Care: Long description short, this is supposed to be a very hydrating moisturizer, that makes you look more radiant and what have you. This may or may not be good but it's such a small sample I don't see how you could get more than a weeks use (maybe) out of this.
Algenist: I have the full size of this. I've also received the sample of it a few times including this time. This is a very good eye cream. It's definitely worth checking out.
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara: This is my favorite "high end" mascara. I love it. I prefer travel size mascara because we never finish a full tube of mascara before it needs to be thrown out (3 months is how long mascara lasts). I've also received this as a sample a few times as well.
Sephora Collection eye pencil: I think I seen this as a point perk. The shade I have is Plum I think. It's supposed to be water proof and 12 hr wear. I'm not a big crayon eye liner fan. There's only a few I like. This could be interesting.
Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow: this is in the shade 6P01 it's like a taupe color with a touch of plum. It very shimmery and it's beautiful. It's creamy and lovely like all the Artist Shadows. So this was cool to have in the box. There is a 500 pt perk out right now from Make Up For Ever and it looks like the eye shadow in that is the same eye shadow in this box. I can't be sure but they look very similar.
Clean Reserve perfume: I'm sorry but this smells like really intense laundry detergent. Like really strong detergent. It gives me a headache and I don't like it.
So that's that. Sorry it was kinda negative. I'm just not overly impressed with this box. I'd like to see some brands that are lesser known that are "under the radar", for example I loved that OUAI was included last month, for the love of God get rid of the perfume samples, and I'd like to see just one skin care product. That is if I had any say in this which I don't. Here is the link to sign up for the subscription if you want it.
