The Subscription Box that is NEVER disappointing
I thought I would be over this box by now, but it's just not true! Each month, I am still excited to find that black and white box in the mail! Though, I could do without repeat items. Just saying.
The first item in my Sephora Play box (from February but shhhh) was this Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Colour. This was a repeat item that I wasn't too broken up about. It is actually a smooth and creamy shadow stick.
The shade was a shimmery, pale rose gold. I'm not much into rose gold on it's own for makeup -I know! It's such a favorite shade for people but it just is too medium of a color for me. I need more POP! The shade of this shadow stick gave a nice back drop to the colors I wanted to use.
Caviar Stick Eye Colour gives my makeup longevity. I have watery eyes, because I;m a cry baby, so my eye makeup has a pretty short shelf life. The shadow stick also gave some oomph to these not so great eyeshadows.
Next was the Sephora Collection Rouge Matte Lipstick in Rebel Chic. I was shocked by how pigmented the lipstick was AND by how smooth it went across my lips. Not a skip. Not a tug. My lips felt like velvet.
I also felt this color was a reflection of my soul.
Finding this skin care item in my Sephora Play box made me feel like I had won the game of ‘was the box worth it?’ Ugh, such a gem! It’s every beauty box subscriber’s fantasy to open their mail to find a product they’ve been yearning to try. For me, that product has been the Farmacy Green Clean Meltaway Cleansing Balm with Echinacea GreenEnvy. Despite it’s comically long name, the product has been on my Sephora Loves list for ages. I didn’t know if I would love it but that list serves as a “ooo grl, you gotta try this’ list.
A full size of this makeup removing balm has already been purchased and added to my cabinet. It melts away makeup like it was never even there. Mascara can be such a brat. So many makeup removers leave mascara on my lashes. This Farmacy product dissolves it! There is a video of an actress from The Lion King on Broadway removing her stage makeup with this balm. It is the reason I wanted to try this product. It did not disappoint.
Out of all of the six samples that were featured in my Sephora Play subscription box (*whispers* from February), the only disappointing product was the Belif Eye Bomb. Firstly, it was a repeat product. Secondly, I didn’t like it the first time I had gotten it. That is the only aspect of the Play box that I would like changed: subscribers can review the items as to potentially adjust what our future boxes could contain.
The Fresh lip balm is bomb but it is also expensive. So I was glad to have it as a sample. And the perfume was: eh. A little sweet, a little not much to it. Still, I was more than happy with this box and continued my subscription!
