Does any of you have subscribed to Play! by Sephora box? If you are, please let me know what you think?
I always get excited whenever I see a black and white striped box in the mail, who doesn’t? it’s Sephora come on! 🙂
Anyway, this month is called “The Cool Cut” while the bag also says “Lipstix & Chill”. Let’s see why?
The True Cream Aqua Bomb – What it is:
A lightweight gel-cream that floods the skin with a rush of refreshing hydration and minimizes the appearance of pores for soft, smooth, supple feel.
– Enlarged pores
– Dullness and uneven texture
I cannot wait to try this cream, especially that it’s getting really cold here so dryness is just around the corner. I need to hydrate my skin as much as possible and I hope that this moisturizer will do it’s job.
What it is formulated to do:
This gently yet effective exfoliating peel preps skin to maximize absorption of nutrients from skin care products, and creates the perfect canvas for flawless makeup application. Great for all skin types including sensitive, it combines high-performance ingredients like AC-11, arbutin, and fullerene to revive skin’s youthful vitality.
My skin needs some TLC right now and with this Skin Inc. Pure Revival Peel, I am hoping that this will help bring back it’s life. I just wish that this product is gentle on my super sensitive skin.
Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil – What it is:
A deeply regenerating, creamy formula that restructures, strengthens, and protects all hair types, including damaged.
What it is formulated to do:
This regenerative care treatment’s creamy formula penetrates completely into the hair for a profound and long-lasting effect, from roots to tips. It is enriched with pure prickly pear seed oil—a precious natural remedy with antioxidant and regenerative virtues. Its action is reinforced with a 100 percent natural repairing agent that restructures and strengthens hair from the inside, smoothing and enhancing its shine. These active ingredients are combined with inula flower extract to reinvigorate and protect the pigments of natural or dyed hair. The scalp is stimulated, roots are regenerated, and hair is protected from breakage and split ends for a smooth, soft, radiant finish.
UUhhmm, yes! I don’t mind trying out products that will help protect my hair from breakage and split ends. I just got my hair done while I was on my short trip so I definitely need something to keep my hair from getting damaged again.
- Mascara Amplified – What it is:
A tube-forming, water-resistant mascara that gives buildable, glamorous volume with no smudging, flaking, running, or clumping.What it does:
After almost a decade in development, Blinc Mascara Amplified provides incredible, buildable volume and length, all while offering their signature LifeProof properties of the original Blinc Mascara—smudge-proof, sweat-proof, water-resistant, and flake-proof. As with the original, Mascara Amplified coats lashes with a glossy, volumizing and extending coat that forms tiny water-resistant “tubes” around the lash. But, unlike the first formula, this one applies more like a traditional mascara, giving you the ability to add as many coats as you want to build your desired look! Because it is not as wet of a formula, you can even go back and reapply if needed, after it dries.
Mascara? Waterproof? I want.. I want.. I’m sure it’s not new to you that I have a ton of mascara’s and won’t get tired of trying out a few more. I love to discover new mascaras especially when they provide volume and length. I am obsessed with “Covergirl – The SuperSizer mascara” so I am keeping my fingers crossed on this Blinc Mascara Amplified and hope for the best! 🙂
Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick – What it is:
An eight-hour wear, liquid-matte lipstick with a featherweight, comfortable formula that stays put and keeps color looking as fresh and flawless as the first swipe.
What it does:
Perfected on-set in Smashbox’s L.A. photo studio, Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick leaves lips with ultra-lightweight, but bold color. This liquid-matte formula is infused with the lip-smoothing Smashbox Primer Oil complex for suede-soft lip color in an array of gorgeous, highly pigmented shades. The precision tip applicator lines and fills with one swipe of the no-drop reservoir, while Advanced Polymer Technology makes lip color stay put and look fresh and flawless for up to eight hours for smudge-proof, budge-proof, and non-feathering, carefree wear.
Well, I immediately use this lipstick as I was intrigued by its formulation, consistency and it’s lasting power. I was also excited to see how this shade (Driver’s Seat – warm pink) will look on me. The shade is gorgeous which I’m so happy about. However, it’s yet too early to share my conclusion so let’s pause for now.
And the fun part! the Freebie…<3
Yves Saint Laurent introduces a new sparkling fragrance inspired by Paris, the city of intense love. Red berries and pear immediately exude sensuality and femininity. The exotic white datura flower, the soul of the fragrance, embodies desire and seduces the senses. Finally, this modern and daring floral scent is balanced by creamy white musks and patchouli. The experience is a passionate and unforgettable whirlwind journey to Paris.
Strawberry, Raspberry, Bergamot, Calone, Pear, Orange Flower, Jasmin Sambac, White Peony, Datura, Patchouli, White Musk, Ambrox, Cedarwood, Crystal Moss.
Passionate. Sensual. Sophisticated.
This is what I enjoy about Play! by Sephora box. You get a sample size of fragrance bonus aside from the five products in the bag. This way, you get to try new fragrances that are out in the market.
This is an Eau de Parfum Spray that smells florally but in a very subtle way. I am not a fan of floral scents but this, I enjoyed. I’ve tried it a few times and it didn’t bother me at all. I am sure you will enjoy this scent too.
And it’s a wrap!
