Sephora PLAY! March 2017

I am consistently thrilled with my Sephora PLAY! box. It has been a month after month home run for me. Let me show you what came in my March box:


As usual, it came in a signature Sephora stripe box, with the items enclosed in a printed fabric bag. On top, there is a fold-out brochure that describes the items inside and a card for 50 points to take to Sephora.

This month's theme is The Gleam Team, full of highlighters and brightening products.




If you subscribe, your contents will be different. I stopped looking at spoilers, personally, so I look forward to the surprise each month.


Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast: this is the only item of the month that I am hesitant about using. Dry shampoos never, ever, ever work well for me. However, I have tried a few other items from Living Proof, thanks to sub boxes, and I have really liked them, so I will give this a try.


Glam Glow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer: Who is not excited to see a Glam Glow product in a sub box!? For years, I have been all about the matte, porcelain looking face, but lately, juuuust lately, I have been enjoying highlighter and brightening products. I sampled this on my hand - see the last pic of the post - and it even smells fantastic. Looking forward to this!


Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Pink: This rose gold shadow is so pretty! I feel like they recently sent something super similar?? A Laura Mercier stick? I swatched it below.


Benefit Watts Up Cream to Powder Highlighter stick: How cool is this?! It's highlighter in a stick form! I was playing around with this on my hand and I am so excited for it! The color looks gorgeous on my skintone, swatched below on my arm, and I can imagine using this on my cheeks, along my hairline, and as an eyeshadow, too.


Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm: Ooh, I love Josie Maran products! I am thrilled to see this included. I was less thrilled to see how separated it was in the container...maybe because it has an oil base? Did anyone else receive one that was sort of chunky and separated in the pot?


As I was attempting to stir this back together, I wiped the excess from my toothpick on my cheek and holymoly - it feels like liquid velvet being applied to your skin. I can already tell I need a fullsize of this.


Swatch time! From top to bottom, Bobbi Brown Golden Pink eyeshadow, Benefit Watt's Up highlighters, GlamGlow moisturizer.


Last but not least, the perfume sample is Chloe. It smells beautiful!


That concludes my March box. Again, I am thrilled with the contents! Sephora PLAY! delivers high end brands all of the time - GlamGlow, Living Proof, Benefit, Bobbi Brown, and Josie Maran! I love how the items work together, too - an eyeshadow, a face moisturizer, an all over multi tasker, a product that is a primer or finishing balm and something for hair, too.

Also, I think this is the first month we didn't get a Sephora house brand product, too, but that is in no way meant to be a complaint but simply an observation.

What did you get in your Sephora PLAY! box this month?
