The Play! By Sephora beauty subscription box is $10 a month and contains 6 high end deluxe sized beauty samples. Every sample included in this box is a brand that is sold at Sephora. I believe that right now there isn't a waiting list, you can try to sign up on the Sephora site HERE.
The box comes with a booklet which contains fun facts about every item included in the box. On the last page of the booklet there is a coupon which gives you 50 Beauty Insider Points with any purchase in a Sephora store.
Here's what I got in my April box.
Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien
I'm going to start with the product that really pissed me off. Sure, it's great to receive a Nars lip pencil in a beauty box, BUT this is the exact shade that was given as a Sephora VIB Birthday Gift last year. Seriously Sephora?!?! What a lazy cop out! I'm beyond annoyed! Not to mention the fact that they already pulled this with a Makeup Forever lipstick they included a few boxes ago that was a free VIB Birthday Gift from a couple years ago. Just seeing this ruined the vibe of the entire box for me.
Milk Makeup Sunshine Oil
Milk is a new line at Sephora. This product is an oil that you can apply to your face, body or hair. Not very exciting.
Sunday Riley Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment
This is a skin treatment that is supposed to brighten, exfoliate, even hyperpigmentation and reduce fine lines. I was happy to see this product because I've been wanting to try something from Sunday Riley. I've used it a few times and haven't notice any benefits yet. I will tell you that it has a weird rotten citrus scent.
Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream
This is a hydrating and brightening eye cream. I like this eye cream so far, it sinks into my skin pretty quickly.
Sephora Color Cheek Ink Gel
This is a long-wearing gel blush. I only wear powder blushes so I'll be giving this away.
Derek Lam 10 Crosby 2AM Kiss
I don't mind the scent of this perfume but I don't love it either and will probably never wear it. It has notes of salty caramel and crystalized amber (what's that??).
Overall I thought the April Play! by Sephora box was pretty lame. I'm only excited to try the Good Genes serum from Sunday Riley and maybe the Clinique eye cream.
