Shall we play with Sephora Play?

Sephora Play for September 2016

Sephora Play for September 2016

Sephora Play is now open for new subscribers which means it’s a good time to show you what the latest subscription box has brought. Obviously since it’s a sub from Sephora, everything you get in the package is sold at Sephora. The theme for the month is The UNbasic Basics. So let’s peek in and see what they consider unbasic.

In alphabetical order (old habits die hard) I’ve got pictures of 5 of the 6 deluxe sample items.

They hit this UNbasic out of the park. First it’s clear so everyone can use it. Second the size is perfect since, like a mascara, you really shouldn’t use it more than 3 months. Third it’s Anastasia Beverly Hills who made their name with eyebrows. You can use this to tame your brows or to set your color.

KAT VON D TATTOO LINER in TROOPER

Absolutely perfect for me. While all subscription buyers grouse about black eyeliners, including me, this is different since it’s a liquid liner. I love liquid liners. The best part is that just 2 days before this arrived in the mail I had bought the brown one, Mad Max Brown, in the store. I’ve been using it non-stop too. Now I have both shades so color me UNbasically happy.

LIVING PROOF PERFECT HAIR DAY NIGHT CAP OVERNIGHT PERFECTOR

When I reported on my Ipsy Glam bag there was also this size product from Living Proof, 5-in-1 Styling Treatment. I now have this to add to my Living Proof collection which is a good thing. I haven’t tried this yet but it sounds like it could be perfect for my hair. It works overnight and then in the morning you wash it out. I think it’s going to be a great conditioner. Score one more for UNbasic.

OLE HENRIKSEN SHEER TRANSFORMATION

This is where there was some variation in Sephora Play for September. Some people received a Dr. Jarts product, others Ole Henriksen. This moisturizer is very light and can double as a makeup primer. There’s basically no fragrance to it (yea) and is oil free. It contains Licorice Root for brightening, Chamomile for soothing, and Vitamin C to encourage production of collagen. I’m on board to try this for sure.

SEPHORA COLLECTION ROUGE SHINE LIPSTICK in LOVE SPELL

The Rouge Shine Lipsticks are available in 29 High Shine colors. This is a beautiful pink though it is highly fragranced so I’m pretty sure it will be available in a giveaway. As much as I love the shade I haven’t been able to wear Sephora’s lipsticks before. I think it’s the color though that makes this UNbasic.

Missing is ATELIER COLOGNE in SUD MAGNOLIA since it too will be given away so I left it in its opaque envelope. This is described as a floral blend with delicate notes of magnolia with layers of wood and citrus. But I’m not a fragrance wearer.sephora-play-bag

How did I think that Sephora Play did this month? A WINNER. Even with two products that will be given away it definitely hit the mark. These are basics that aren’t so basic and ones that are a welcome addition to my collection. What do you think of the subscription? Is it worth $10 to you?  — Marcia

  1. Marcia, loved the Play bag this month. Calling that rather then a box as I love all of the cute bags the products come in. I agree that it is a great subscription. I don’t do well with liners so time will tell if I am liking this product. Love everything else but the lipstick may be a little light. I did get the Dr. Jart product and really like it. It is very thin and totally unlike the creams and gels I usually use. Every bag I receive may have one or maybe even 2 products that I don’t care for BUT my grandaughters are thrilled to receive them.

  2. I had been debating on whether I should keep this subscription or dump it, but this month bought Play a reprieve. Loving everything I’ve tried so far.

  3. That tattoo liner itself is worth the $10! I love that liner! Awesome deal! I wonder if they are all as good as this month was…
