Play! By Sephora Unboxing & Review - October 2016

The Play! By Sephora box is a beauty subscription service that is $10 per month and includes 5 deluxe beauty samples and a perfume.  Every sample is from a high end brand that is sold at Sephora.  The samples come in a cloth drawstring bag.  You can sign up HERE to get on the waitlist.


The theme for this month's box is Lipstick & Chill.


YSL Mon Paris Perfume
I'm so happy to have received this perfume sample because it's one I was thinking about purchasing for myself during the upcoming VIB sale.  This way I'll get to use it a bunch of times before I really decide.  The notes are fruity, floral and musky.

Erborian Bamboo Crème Frappe
This is a moisturizing facial gel.  It's a very light cooling formula and seems to sink nicely into my skin.

Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask
This hair mask has "rare prickly pear seed oil".  I've used this mask twice and I love it!  It makes my hair insanely soft, I can't stop touching it!  My only complaint is that I don't like the scent which is a bit  herbal-y.

The Estee Edit Flash Photo Gloss
This gloss has blue undertones to make teeth appear whiter.  This is a perfectly fine clear gloss, however there's nothing special or exciting about it in my opinion.

Farmacy Skin Dew Mist
This is a facial mist that will freshen and set makeup, add moisture, and sooth the skin.  It contains GreenEnvy which is a rare type of echinacea that is known to promote vibrant, health-looking skin.  Facial mists don't really excite me so I will try this as a setting spray.

Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Driver's Seat
This liquid lipstick has a comfortable formula.  It's kiss-proof once it dries and lasts a while on me, but not through eating.  The shade is a very pretty terracotta shade with a bit of a peach undertone.  It looks ok on me.

Swatches

L-R: Estee Edit Gloss, Smashbox Liquid Lipstick

Overall, this month's Play! By Sephora box was good.  I LOVE the hair mask and I was happy to receive the YSL perfume and the Smashbox Liquid Lipstick and I'm sure that I'll get good use out of the Erborian moisturizer.
