A few months ago, Sephora came out with their first subscription box service, released only in a limited market. They started sending me promotional emails about it because apparently Boston was one of those very few markets! I resisted for a while because I’m already subscribed to several beauty boxes, and I didn’t think I needed another. But at the $10 price point, I just couldn’t say no to Sephora.
Side note: This is NOT a sponsored post in any way. I subscribed to this box because I thought it looked fun and paid for it with my own money. Sephora does not know I exist!
The November box was the third I’d received, and overall I have to say I’m very impressed with the products they provide for just $10.
Here’s what I got:
- Makeup Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer
- Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in Dolly
- Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil
- Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil in blue
- Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Rhubarb
- Stella McCartney Stella perfume sample
See? It’s so much stuff!
The Buxom Lip Cream is a pretty color, though I’m not sure I’m a fan of the “plumping” effect. You can definitely feel it working while it’s on your lips, which is somewhat of a unpleasant sensation.
The eye pencil is a pretty blue that swatches really nicely in a smooth formula. The lip pigment pencil is a nice, pretty color that looks good on my somewhat pale skin tone.
I haven’t tried the argan oil yet, but according to the booklet, this can be used in any number of ways. I’m looking forward to experimenting!
The perfume sample is on the small side, but doesn’t smell too overpowering. I like more subtle smells, so we’ll see how this holds up when I wear it to work this week.
The last product is the primer, and well – you can never have too many makeup primers! Always a good product and one that will last a while.
If you’re looking to invest in a subscription box (and I use the term “invest” loosely, since this is only $10!) and it’s available in your market, I’d highly recommend the Sephora box. They also include a Sephora Play! card in every box that you can cash in for beauty insider points. It gives you access to online makeup tutorials as well.
