Play! by Sephora February Review

by Lisa on Wednesday: Mar 02, 2016

The February Play! by Sephora box arrived in my mailbox recently, and I’m continuing to enjoy this subscription. I’m always excited to see what they’re going to send out, and I feel like this subscription continues to be worth much more than the $10 they charge.

Sephora Play Now and Later

As always, I subscribe to this box on my own with my own money. This post is not sponsored. I just thought it would be fun to share.

Here’s what I received this month:

Sephora Play Tom Ford, Bare Minerals

Tom Ford Black Orchid
It’s funny that this perfume sample arrived this month, because I have recently seen multiple YouTube videos in which people have been raving about this scent. I tried it over the weekend, applying it only to my wrists, and I liked it a lot! It was on the strong side, but my light application helped, and I did like it even more after it mellowed on my skin.

Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm in Plumberry Pop
I’m not a huge lipstick person, mostly because I feel like any color I try is a stark contrast to my pale skin and ends up looking a little bit too intense. This color was pretty bright on me (no surprise there), but if I ever feel like being bold, I could see reaching for this. The formula was very smooth and easy to apply.

Sephora Play Eyeliner and Lipstick

Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner in Noir Intense
As I’ve mentioned many times, I love getting wearable black eyeliners in my subscription boxes. I much prefer these over crazy color that will just sit around and never get used. This pencil is great – it sharpens very smoothly and you don’t have to worry about pencil “shards” near your eyes, like I have to with some of my cheaper eyeliners. It applies very easily and I like how my eyes look when using it. This is a keeper.

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural in N9 Copper Pink
Unlike the Bare Minerals color, this one is much more neutral on me and a color I would consider wearing more frequently. Although, as I mentioned that I’m not a huge lipstick person, I would have preferred not to receive 2 lipsticks in one box.

Sephora Play Dry Shampoo and Tarte Mascara

Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder
This is a dry shampoo type of product, but unlike most others that come in a hairspray style canister, this one is loose powder that you shake out of the container. This concept was a little odd at first and reminded me of the days when I was in middle school/high school and used straight-up baby powder in my hair when it got greasy. However, this powder worked in really easily, smelled nice and actually did seem to make a difference.

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara
Tarte has been one of my favorite makeup brands since I started experimenting with higher end products last year. I’ve used several of their mascaras before and have loved the ones I’ve tried. This one was new to me, but it was another quality product. It made my lashes look full and long, and I know I will enjoy using the rest of this sample.


What is the one makeup/beauty product that you can’t live without?

    I’m not very adventurous when it comes to makeup, and I’m terrible at remembering to replace my makeup products. This subscription box may be the solution to both of those problems! I had never heard of Play! by Sephora before, but am going to do some more research. Thanks for sharing!
