Sephora PLAY! June 2017 - My Last Box!

Hello! Today I have a review of my last Sephora PLAY! box. I love getting the box, but I stopped for a few reasons. First, I am broke, LOL. Second, I find myself buying makeup anyway - and my hope/thought/stupid idea was that this would sub in for buying makeup. Third, and finally, I usually enjoy the products but these aren't necessarily things I buy, need, or even use. In sum, it was time to downsize. I also cancelled my MyFacetory sub, too, FYI.

Here is what I received in June:


And let's see each item:


IGK Coconut Oil Gel: As a newly banged individual, I am quite happy to get a travel size gel! This will be quite handy in AZ next week.

OUAI Rose Hair & Body Oil: Swatched below on my hand, this lightweight oil can be used anywhere. It has a more floral than straight rose scent, and absorbed very easily.



Benefit The PoreFessional Primer: Everyone has tried this by now, right? I wish the sample was a little bigger - this actually made it for 2 uses for me - but I think everyone has tried it so maybe the sample shrank since everyone loves it? I love how velvety this is and that it is tinted. If you haven't tried it, time to do so!

First Aid Beauty Coconut Skin Smoothing Priming Moisturizer: Womp, womp. Receiving this is what convinced me to cancel my 'script - I already own the full size. And I hate it.


Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in K-Dub: I am torn on this one! This formula is so far from 'everlasting' that it is almost comical. The color, which I have heard quite a few people disliking, is super bright, so when the center of your lip rubs off while eating or drinking, it is quite noticeable. On the otherhand, my roomie from college has the initials KW, so it reminds me of her and therefore, I like it! Swatched below:


And that's it! Do you get the PLAY! box? Love it, hate it?

Let me know in the comments.



  1. This is the same box I got...the thing for me is that I love to order those favorites/value sets, so there can be overlap there. I think I have 3 of those hair gel samples now.

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:

Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.

Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.

Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?

I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!

The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!


PS: Fuck Trump!

Not only are they 5-free, but every year they do an "earth day" promo, where you can purchase Zoya polish at half price - IF you promise to send them back old bottles of polish to be recycled properly by Zoya.  You can also donate your polishes to a local charity and it still counts as part of their promotion.

Here are the details:
