In January, I proclaimed that month to be my favorite bag so far. I can tell you right now: February rocks even more! And, I saw a spoiler for the March bag (I won't tell), but it already sets the tone for an amazing bag next month, too. Sephora PLAY! is the only sub box I receive, but it does not disappoint and it valued well, well over the $10.64 that it costs each month.
I do love getting well known name brand products, as opposed to the more obscure brands in other brands that may or may not work, are harder to find info about, and may not be easy to find in stores in if you decide to purchase the full size after samples.
This month contains products from Too Fard, Nars, Origins, Clinique, Marc Jacobs, and, as always, something from the Sephora house brand.
I am in love with this bag! Instead of straight hearts and red, the PLAY! bag this month is a soft satin rose gold. I still don't know what to do to reuse it, but it's a beautiful color. It says "Smitten" on it and #sephoraplay below.
According to the Sephora website, Clinique Hydroblur is "lightweight, oil-free moisturizer instantly blurs imperfections and provides all-day hydration, while immediately reducing surface shine and providing lasting oil control for up to eight hours. Great for use alone, under foundation, or for touch-ups throughout the day, skin looks naturally perfected with a matte finish. It's the ideal way to give your skin the moisture it needs, and the forgiving retouch that blurs the look of pores and fine, dry lines."
While I am usually a mascara snob and limit my use to Benefit Roller and L'Oreal Miss Manga (the discontinued one with the green cap), it is actually close to the time to throw out both of mine and get new products. Mascara is pretty much the one thing I will routinely throw out and replace every 3-4 months, as suggested. The formula of Sephora's Lash Craft Length and Volume Mascara looks wet, which I like, the brush looks fluffy and bristly, the price point is great (so it's OK in case I do love it!), and it has a cool name, LOL. I think I'll try this!
Marc Jacob's Divine Decadence is not for me, and that's totally fine. I smell cotton and barbeque, LOL.
I love getting eye creams in sub boxes, especially well known and well loved products like Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream. I have used this in the past and am psyched to have it again.
Two lippies this month!! I am not sure everyone will be as stoked as me, but I was thrilled to see both of these. Too Face Lip Injection Glossy in Milkshake is a plumping lip gloss that really tingles! It gives you the wet lip look with no added color. Nars Velvet Lip Glide is the product I was most excited to see in the box! I actually stopped myself from looking at spoilers for this month. I think I'll continue to skip them because it was fun to be surprised. I read review about the Velvet Lip Glide on Temptalia and actually had this very shade, Bound, in my Sephora cart that I cannot afford to purchase right now!
Here are swatches of both. I didn't let Nars Bound dry down enough, but it does dry to a satin matte finish. It is so comfortable to wear!
So, in conclusion, February 2017 is now my favorite box to date!
I did see a spoiler from March that I am really excited for, but I plan to avoid any more spoilers and wait for the surprise. Do you get Sephora PLAY!? What did you get in your box?
