Sephora PLAY! April 2017

The April Sephora PLAY! box is here! As usual, it came in the striped box, in a white pouch with a design, and a fold-out brochure that details the items and their uses. It also includes a card redeemable in store for 50 points and a consultation with an employee (which you can always get, FYI).

This month's theme is Step It Up, detailing each of the steps in your makeup routine.

The pouch for this month was cute, but I still have no idea what to do with these! I would really like Sephora to change this, but it is really the contents that count, right?

Honestly, there is nothing toooooo exciting this month. As part of the "step it up" theme, I think they were aiming for basics - stuff you should always have at the ready.

Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover: I had just recently been thinking I should stop using face wipes, at least on my eyes. I tend to be heavy handed and rub my lashes quite a bit, so this arrived at the right time for me to try out.

Philosophy Purity Face Wash: I know that I lot of people love this brand, but unfortunately I am not one of them. This cleanser does not agree with me, so it will be swapped. I am sure I will have no problem finding a happy taker!

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream: I am always looking for that holy grail moisturizer, so this is the product I am most looking forward to trying. I don't believe I have tried any PTR products yet. Anything that promises 72 hours of hydration sounds intriguing to me!

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer: This is a sub box staple! It is also a holy grail product, so I will certainly use this right up. I love the consistency of this product. I do have other favorite primers that I re-purchase, but seriously, I adore getting samples of this, especially for travel.

Makeup Forever Aqua XL Extra Long lasting Waterproof Eyeliner: I received this in black, swatched below. This is a eyeliner with a gel-like texture. I used it in my waterline and it did NOT budge! I will try it a few more times before I commit and re-purchase, but so far, so good.

There is also a Miu Miu perfume sample, but apparently I forgot to take a solo picture. I am pleased with this month's box but not super excited. I do like trying new basics that I use daily, like black eyeliner and moisturizer, in the hopes of finding that new holy grail item. I will swap the cleanser, but I don't mind receiving it as I know it is a hit for many. All in all, another good box! Looking forward to May already!

Do you get this sub? Did you get anything different?

Lacey
