   The cute Bag

Love the lipstix and chill design on the bag. The quality of the bag is not that great.


The flyer has all the details about the products and the instructions to use to them.

Too Cool For School Egg Mellow Cream-$4.30

Haven’t ever tried a moisturizer made from egg . I used it the other night as my night cream and it certainly was very hydrating and doesn’t have any kind of fragrance . A little goes a long way ,too much can make your skin oily. Good size sample.

 Verb Leave-In Mist-$1.75

I remember getting a sample of this mist in one of Sephora orders. It worked well for my thin. This size is great for travelling. I love using mist when i am air drying my hair.


Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick Driver's Seat

Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick Driver’s Seat- $8? Can’t figure out

Love this liquid lipstick. It’s not too too drying,remains tacky for a while before drying completely.

This shade is certainly a great choice for fall. The liquid lipstick doesn’t have one swipe opacity but you can layer on. Also the applicator has this tear drop shape and makes applying liquid lipstick so easy. It lasted for 6 hours and it did not feather out when eating or drinking !!!

NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil Belle -$24 full size

I wasn’t happy getting two lip products in the box but when i checked this is a full size item and can be used as blush.  I was a happy camper. It blends beautifully as blush, I am not sure if it will show up on my skin tone. As lipstick, I was pleasantly surprised it is so hydrating and long lasting. It lasted more than 4 hours with eating dinner. The shade is quite lighter than the smashbox one. It’s the perfect nude for my skin tone not too light.

Skin Inc. Pure Revival Peel-

                                             Skin Inc. Pure Revival Peel-$4.70

This a very tiny sample. May be 2 uses. Its an exfoliating skin peel and has claims of not drying or striping the skin.

Tom Ford Orchid Soleil - Bonus Fragrance Sample

                       Tom Ford Orchid Soleil – Bonus Fragrance Sample

The perfume sample is bonus item in the box. I love the Tom Ford Black Orchid is my fav.  I use the roll on sparingly.It’s an expensive perfume. Firstly the sample has a spritzer thats was nice. I am not a fan of rose perfumes but this scent is growing on me.Its floral but has some warmth to it. It’s certainly doesn’t beat  Tom Ford Black Orchid.


                                                                      Play Card

Also don’t forget to save the play card it gives you an extra 50 points when making in store purchase.

Final Thoughts :The value of  products in the bag comes to a total of $42.75 and I paid $10 for this box. The products are of the  brands I would love to try and I can easily get them from Sephora. This box was a good mix of skincare, haircare and makeup. So i would say pretty good box for this month. Sephora sends out different variations of bag,let me know in the comments below which variation did you receive or are you subscribed to Sephora Play ?

  1. I am still trying to decide if I want to subscribe to this. Maybe once I go throught the insane amount of samples I already have, I’ll take the plunge. The bag you got looks incredible! I have been curious about Too Cool for School’s products and the egg cream sounds good. The Smashbox Liquid Lipsticks are incredible and that color looks gorgeous on you!

    • Kristen I totally agree that fact of finishing off the samples. I don’t remember buying primer or mascara since i have started getting these subscription boxes 🙂 Recently I have cancelled Birchbox and Boxycharm. The egg cream is going strong not too oily for my combo skin type but the required hydration. I am so debating on getting a full size of the smashbox liquid lipstick may be in a darker color.

  2. I LOVE Play! By Sephora and I think it’s an excellent subscription box! I’ve tried the Egg Cream product before, I think I had a cleanser?!? It was pretty good, but nothing that I’d probably re-purchase again. By the way, that Smashbox lippie is beautiful on you!
