Play! by Sephora is a monthly subscription box that brings only the best and exclusive Sephora beauty and makeup samples. The subscription costs $10 per month, and you’ll get 5 deluxe beauty products, playlists, a fragrance bonus item, plus coupons you can use when you visit in-store.
Your subscription also entitles you to PLAY! Date meetups if your store participates. I don’t even have a Sephora (not even a JCP one) but this box totally excites me even without those experiences – I love the high end brands every month for just $10.
That little card is a PLAY! Pass that will get you 50 extra Beauty Insider points with a purchase from the box – in-store only. Plus try all the shades of Kat Von D’s new liquid lippie!
tarte Tarteguard Tinted Moisturizer in Medium ($5.40) This tinted moisturizer has an SPF of 20 and uses mineral sunscreens – a total win in that area! I did wear this, but I felt that it was a teeny tiny bit too warm for my face. I decided to save it for my beach trip instead of my pasty office environs. Tarte does have this in a light-medium and I think that would be perfect for my every day.
Briogeo Curl Charisma Leave-In Defining Creme ($2.50) Why did I get this? I do not know. I have straight hair. Also saved for my beach trip — to pass off to my curly-haired bestie.
It’s super cute that Sephora thinks that people with fine, straight hair can benefit from curl cream though.
Bumble and bumble Don’t Blow It ($4) ! This one is designed for air styling, which is perfect for me, since I so rarely blowdry! I used this a few months ago and more than happy to use it again!
KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in K-Dub ($9.09) Well, it’s bold!
I actually loved the great fuchsia color and it wasn’t too crazy on, but my color had disappeared after a few hours of normal wear. It’s long lasting but not as much as some others I’ve tried. I did however like the non-drying formula!
Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield ($11.05)
This SPF30 uses microparticles to give a blurring effect to your skin, which I think is most effective on its own, so this is great for a no-makeup day!
Mugler Alien ($4.97) If you don’t know already, I’m a Thierry Mugler fan. I think Angel is a fantastic hot summer scent.
This bonus sample came in a little sprayer too!
Alien has notes of Solar Accord, Jasmine Sambac, Green Notes, Cashmeran, Vanilla, Transparent Amber.
This was a great box for me, except the Briogeo was a massive profile miss. The value was right at $37 for June for this box variant. I guess my profile was set at medium skin tone for the summer, but I tweaked it back to light – the medium tone is just too dark for my skin.
