Play! by Sephora Subscription Box | November 2016

Alright, so it’s time to PLAYYYY…Sephora style! I look forward to receiving this box every month! Each month, the box is filled with 5 handpicked samples (plus a fragrance) for $10! I can do without the fragrances because I don’t wear perfume. You also get a cute bag every single month. Also with this subscription, if you are a member of the Sephora Rewards Program, you will be able to use the card received in each box for 50 bonus rewards points on your next in store purchase. You also get free one-on-one tutorials on how to use the products in your box. In the few months that I’ve had this box, I haven’t used the tutorials. I should probably make some time to try one out.

Anyway, this month’s theme was “Best in Glow.” When I received the email announcing the theme, I was super excited because I have been on a mad hunt trying to find products that give my skin the “glow from within” look. So, did any of the products achieve this? Let’s see below!

Are you a glow getter??? 

Cover FX Illuminating Primer, $38.00

This primer preps skin for makeup application. It has a light reflecting mineral complex and it helps eliminate dullness. You apply this product onto clean, moisturized skin since this is not a moisturizer. If you view the video at the bottom of this post, you will see that it has a nice glowing effect. Looking at it on my forearm, I’m thinking that it will be too light light for my complexion since it has a pearly tint. I need products with a golden tint.  I will try it on my face one day. A little goes a long way, so you will not need a lot of product for a full face.

Also, according to the product details, Cover FX’s complexion perfecting formulas are a go to for sensitive skin because they are irritant and paraben-free.

Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gel in Pin Up Ink, $12.00

I used to wear glosses all the time before lipstick became my go to. I am trying to get back into wearing glosses just to change up my look. This gloss is not sticky and is very hydrating. It has a hot pink hue, so I am not sure if I will ever really wear this color. I am not really a pink lip kind of girl. If glosses are your thing, I would recommend this one! It comes in 38 other colors, so you will definitely find one that you love!

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Rose Gold, $29.00

I like eyeshadow sticks because they are multipurpose. You can use them as a shadow, liner, or even a highlighter depending on the shade. Since this one is a rose gold, you can use it for all purposes. The shadow is very pigmented. It glides on so smoothly and blends easily. It is also buildable, which will allow you to apply multiple layers to give you an opaque glimmer. This shadow stick comes in 10 other shades.

Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet, $39.00

Who doesn’t love a good moisturizer!?! I know I do because I HATE having dry skin! This moisturizer leaves me skin feeling hydrated and soft! This product leaves your skin looking healthy and luminous.

GLAMGLOW THIRSTYMUD Hydrating Treatment, $69.00

I was not able to try this product out because it is not for sensitive skin. It is good for normal, oily, combination, or dry skin. According to the product details, it is a non-drying hydrating mask that leaves your skin instantly moisturized. “It moisturizes, restores, replenishes, and calms the skin. Dewdration™ boosts and locks in moisture for a dewy and youthful result while HydraPack™ leaves skin with an instant silky, soft, and supple feel. GreenEnergy™ smooths and energizes the skin, giving you a healthy-looking, glowing complexion.” Also, from looking at the reviews, it is worth the $69 price tag because about 65% of the 1,241 reviews give it 5 stars!

Have you tried any of these products? If so, what were your thoughts?
