Play! by Sephora | November 2015

Leave a Comment
I received my third box from Play! by Sephora last week. For those of you that are curious, Play! by Sephora is a monthly subscription box for $10 a month that contains six samples every month. All of the samples are of products that you can purchase at Sephora. There was a waiting list when I signed up, and I got an email when the service became available to me. You can go to if you want to get on the list.

The Exclusives is the theme of this box, so it contains samples of products that are exclusive to Sephora. Let's take a look inside.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil in Rhubarb - I was really excited to see this in the box, and then I realized that I have the same color. Rhubarb was in a holiday set that I reviewed here. This plum rose color is an easy to wear everyday color. I haven't opened this because I will probably pass it on to a friend.

Josie Maran Argan Oil - Argan Oil is a great all-around moisturizer for skin and hair, and it does not necessarily have to be from a high end brand like Josie Maran. I have another sample of this that I got as a 100 point perk. I may try using these samples on my cuticles.

Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12HR Wear in My Boyfriend's Jeans - This is an electric blue eyeliner that claims to be waterproof and wear for 12 hours. I haven't worn this yet, but it was very smooth when I swatched it. The swatch didn't budge when I tried to rub it out, and it took a lot of effort to wash it off. It's nice to get an eyeliner that isn't black. 

Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer in Hydrating Primer - Primer isn't something that I use every day, but I might give this one a try instead of giving it away. I'm curious about how hydrating this really is. It might come in handy this winter. My skin is getting dry already.

Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in Dolly - Another product I've been wanting to try! I'm not super fond of plumping lip glosses because I don't like the way they feel. This one isn't too intense, so I think it's going to work out. This color would look nice pair with the Bite pencil.

Stella McCartney Stella eau de parfum - Stella is a light rose fragrance. I have been wanting to sample Stella, so I'm glad this came in the box. Every box has had a fragrance in it, so far. I enjoy trying new fragrances, but I know not everyone is happy to see perfume in these boxes.

Overall, I'm happy with the products included in this month's box, but I'm still not as excited about this subscription as I thought I would be. It's not that the samples aren't good samples. They are. This box is the best one I've received so far. I'm just not seeing anything new or different from the samples I've already collected from Sephora orders and point perks over the years. If you're a new beauty junkie, then these samples would be amazing. For me, it just keeps falling flat, even with the good samples that are in this box. I'm going to give this service another couple of months before I consider cancelling. 

Let's be friends!
