I shared on Instagram last week that I received my Sephora Play Box this month, and now I'm going to share what I got inside! The Sephora Play Box is a subscription service from Sephora for $10 a month, and you get 5-7 deluxe samples, a cute drawstring bag and an insert telling you all about the products inside. I love this month's bag! The wink is super cute and I will definitely find a use for this.

Here's what I got this month:
The one thing I love about the Sephora Play Box, is how diverse the products are every month. I love how there is skincare, makeup and a perfume. I would have to say my favorite product this month is the Make Up Forever eyeshadow, it's a beautiful iridescent taupe purple/pink. The Sephora eyeliner is also really pretty, it's a dark purple shade that which would be a subtle way to add some color in your makeup look. Based on my swatch of this, it set really quickly and it was hard to rub off after a few seconds, so hopefully that means it won't smudge on your waterline!

I think the skincare items in this bag are great, but sadly something I won't use. I don't use eye cream, and I already have a moisturizer I love, so I won't get much use out of this Lancome sample.

The item I like the least is the Urban Decay Perversion mascara, as I mentioned in 'My Mascara Drawer' post, I wasn't such a fan of this formula and how it looked on my lashes. 

The last item is the Clean Perfume, which has a really nice lemon/fresh scent. It's a really enjoyable scent, but I never get much use out of these little deluxe perfume samples.

Overall? This bag wasn't so amazing. Last month's bag was definitely the best so far, and this one doesn't seem to measure up. Honestly, the item I will get the most use out of is the bag because it's really cute! The Make Up Forever eyeshadow is really pretty, but I don't think I'll really be using the other samples. 

So, even though this month's bag was a dud, I won't be canceling just yet. I really enjoyed last month's bag, and hopefully, after giving Sephora some feedback, next month's bag will be much better.

  3. This seems like such a great idea in theory and I love most products I've tried from Sephora, but I don't know if it would be worth subscribing to. I guess some months are better than others with subscription services.
