These past few months, I haven’t exactly been wowed by IPSY Glambags, so I wanted to switch it up a bit; I decided to swap out my IPSY Glambag monthly subscription for the monthly Sephora Play! box just to see which one I may like better.
I love myself some IPSY Glambags, but sometimes, you just need to shake it up a bit. I plan on only subscribing to the Sephora Play! box for the summer, then I will re-evaluate and decide if I want to continue with the Sephora Play! box or not, and if I want to go back with IPSY Glambags.
PROS of Sephora Play! box:
- all items in the Sephora Play! box are available at Sephora stores and sephora.com
- bags aren’t always “makeup” bags – they come in different forms
- brands are wider-known
- complimentary perfume sample in addition to your 5 monthly items
- free shipping
- comes with pamphlet/brochure listing all of the products in the bag, a card that you can bring to Sephora to use for many things (explained in the monthly pamphlet)
CONS of Sephora Play! box:
- monthly fee is $10 + tax
- samples aren’t exactly huge…but they’re not foil packets, so I’m happy!
I LOVE Sephora, let’s jump in and see what’s in the May 2017 Sephora Play! Beauty Box:
trèStiQue Highlight & Perfect Multipurpose Stick $34
This highlighter is GORGEOUS! I am super impressed by the pigmentation and the creamy formula!
NUDESTIX Magnetic Matte Lip Color in “Greystone” $24
This shade is quite deep, and more on the brownish side so for me, this is more of a Fall shade, but the formula seems GREAT! I swatched this on the back of my hand and it took some serious scrubbing to get it off – should be super duper long-wearing!
rahua Omega 9 Hair Mask $58
This hair mask is amazing and I’m so glad I got a chance to try it! When I use this, my hair looks so damn healthy!!!
Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil $48
I have super oily skin so I’m kind of scared of this product, when I tried it just on the back of my hand, it seemed really oily…I’m scared.
TOCCA Stella $38-72
I really like the smell of this fragrance, it’s sexy and a little woodsy – it seems perfect for a date night…but I’m not sure my husband will love it because it has a slight “old lady” scent to it…fingers crossed!
I also filmed an Unboxing video for this (my very first) Sephora Play! box:
