Play By Sephora August and July 2017

Today I received  my August Play by Sephora box strangely it’s too early this month.

If you are not  familiar with this subscription box here are some of the details.

Play by Sephora is a  monthly beauty subscription box that brings you the best of it. Each month, you’ll look forward to a curation of five deluxe, prestige samples (plus a fragrance bonus) in a collectible bag.

Subscription: Play by Sephora

Cost: 10$ ( shipping included)

Ships to : Only available in the 48 contiguous United States, and cannot be shipped to Hawaii, Alaska, US territories, or APO/FPO addresses at this time.

Theme:Makeup Geek

Let me confess something ..whenever I have tried to post about this subscription I have been pulled into something , there have been fire alarms or some other emergencies have come up. But today before any issues come up let’s check what i recieved in my box.

This month’s bag seems quite nerdy cute and the leaflet with it explains all the abbreviation for the ingredients.
I am pretty excited about these first 2 products.

I have heard so much about this HourglassVanish™ Seamless Finish Foundation Stick $7.36  As you can see in the swatch the  shade is pretty good match and the foundation feels creamy.

Beautyblender® micro.mini $9 I have used so many beauty blenders and this micro mini has been has on my list. Normally a full size would have 2 of these but one is also a good sample to try.

Lancer The Method: Polish $ 8.9- I have no idea about this  brand, had to go on sephora’s website  and read about it. Its described as the powerful anti aging exfoliator and seems pretty expensive.  Decent sample size. Love trying out new brands.

CLINIQUE Lash Building Primer and High Impact Mascara Duo $8 – This duo seems like a travel size. Never tried a mascara primer so something new to try. I love getting mascara samples since they expire so quickly I just feel a full size won’t to be completely utilised as compared to a sample.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo Mini $12 – I think this is a repeat item but i have enjoyed this dry shampoo and it works perfectly  with my fine oily hair. I go through dry shampoo every month so this is going to be put to use right away. Great sample size.

DOLCE&GABBANALight Blue – The perfume sample which is actually a bonus item was something which I  love and own a full size. If you like something fresh , clean and light this is the fragrance.

Overall the august box is valued at  $45.26  which is pretty good value for $10 subscription and you also get beauty insider points for $10.  Certainly the best sephora play box in a while.

Now onto the July box since it arrived quite late  I am now sharing my thoughts.


Theme: Glam out 

So I was super excited to see the bareMineralsGEN NUDE™ Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Swag $8.7 But my excitement was short lived until i tried this lipstick ? or lipgloss. It doesn’t last on me for more than a hour. Also it’s not pigmented and can’t apply layers to make fully opaque. Takes forever to dry ..in fact it never dried. Oh and it was not even filled completely.

The shade was also a bit light for my preference.

I love the brand briogeo and this BriogeoRosarco Milk™ Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray $ 3  was really nice addition to my hair routine as it goes through so much heat .

MILK MAKEUPCooling Water $2  This was my first time trying out milk makeup. I enjoyed this cooling gel stick…the smallest sample. But my only con was it makes my face sticky after some time.

As I said earlier I love mascara samples and IT CosmeticsSuperhero™ Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara $12 hands down the best mascara i have ever used. Makes my lashes super long and adds so much drama.

BosciaCharcoal Pore Pudding Intensive Wash-Off Treatment $11.4 – They are not joking its the most intense mask I have ever tried but in a good way. I must warn you once you apply the thinnest layer it  is going to give you a warming sensation. It makes me feel it’s working 🙂 Also an awesome generous sample size.

The perfume sample Atelier CologneOrange Sanguine Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume

was a repeat but i loved it. 

Overall  only 2 items worked for me. Kinda disappointed in this box but that’s why i feel beauty subscription great way to try new stuff Total value $37.1

Also a quick review of my June box since i never got to a full blog on this one …  The Kat von d liquid lipstick in k- dub(swatched below) was my favourite it looks intimidating but looks so good its my new summer favourite. 

Benefit CosmeticsThe POREfessional Face Primer smallest sample size, oldie but a goodie

OuaiRose Hair & Body Oil smells awesome,have been using this as a body oil absorbs so quickly.I might splurge on a fullsize

First Aid BeautyHello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer  did not layer well under makeup and maybe a tad bit oily for my skin. 

IGKRich Kid Coconut Oil Gel is not a right product for my fine hair. It may be a great one for someone else.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick K -Dub

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick K -Dub

Overall the june box was a mixed one not bad but not too impressive.

The card gives the details of the cute gudetama and the lazy summer.
Ipsy Bag July 2017

Isn’t this bag the cutest of all I am digging this overeasy gudetama and the backside of the bag has cute butt too. The zipper says meh…how cute is that ..

Now let’s move on to the goodies

tarte cosmetics Rainforest of the Sea™ deep dive cleansing gel $1.25 & Jersey Shore Cosmetics Mandarin Green Orange & Ginger Mongongo Lip Conditioner $10

tarte cosmetics Rainforest of the Sea™ deep dive cleansing gel $1.25 & Jersey Shore Cosmetics Mandarin Green Orange & Ginger Mongongo Lip Conditioner $10

Love getting tarte products in the bag,I have enjoyed moisturizing gel from this line & it worked great. I wished the sample was little bigger. Always a great way to test out a new face cleanser.

I am very picky about lip balms and not very excited about this one. It moisturizing and hydrating as hell but I hate the smell. This balm is 100% natural and has organic ingredients. Also protects from UV damage,great for beach or pool day.

OFRA Cosmetics Victory Eyeshadow- $7.5

OFRA Cosmetics Victory Eyeshadow – $7.5

This is my first time trying out the brand ofra. I got the shade Victory which can be described as brownish greenish shadow with a golden sheen. This would go great on my brown eyes. On touching it feels soft and you can in the swatch it’s pigmented. Not a full size product.

Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold

Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold -$14

So pretty peachy pink blush with a gold sheen. You can use this as blush or as blush topper. The ingredients  are 99% natural , vegan, and extracts from lychee and chamomile. This brand is also cruelty free. This is a great shade for summer to get the glow. You can see it swatch below.

Swatches !!!

Lakur Enhanced Colour by Londontown Brit of love

Lakur Enhanced Colour by Londontown Brit of love -$16

Ipsy always keeps the nail addict in me intact. Such beautiful pink shade. Cruelty free,vegan,gluten free and 9 free formula. The color is also opaque in two coats. Full size product

Ipsy Bag July 2017  

FINAL THOUGHTS :
The total value for the bag is $48.75 for which I paid $10 which is kind of okay. I have had bags which valued much more. This month’s bag did not knock out of the park but the blush, eyeshadow and nail polish are certainly my favourites. Also the bag is so adorable. The lip balm was a good product but i hate the scent and the tarte cleanser is good but so small to know if it actually works.
Ipsy sends out different version of bags. What did you get in this month’s bag and what was your favourite item? Let me know in the comments below.

PLAY! by SEPHORA The Iconic Edition 2017

Play By Sephora the Iconic Edition

So Sephora kind dropped this Limited edition Play by Sephora Iconic Edition last week. I did get an email notification from Sephora. This box was exclusive to VIB Rouge members on for $20. Its one time purchase. It’s now sold out. If you are rouge member and would like get this next time I would recommend to set the email reminder.I would as usual update on Instagram once it available but its sold out pretty quickly.

Sephora described it as

Discover the best in luxury. This exclusive, limited-edition box is only available online and includes six deluxe samples from Sephora’s top luxury brands curated by our experts. PLAY! by SEPHORA: The Iconic Edition is an individual set of luxury items, not a monthly subscription.

I placed on my order on 9th June and the box was delivered on 13th June. Not so fast …kind of late .

The box is black unlike the regular playbox.

Gold Bag

The box included Play book and a gold bag. The book and bag certainly feels like luxury.

 The Booklet

The booklet certainly has lot for information about the products and different tips & tricks. The bag has a golden zipper not like usual playbags.

Let’s move on to the products.

Tom Ford Black Orchid  & Dior Poison Girl

I love Tom Ford Black orchid perfume so much that I already own full size . Its warm and floral at the same time. It’s certainly a very heavy fragrance. Whenever I have worn this perfume some or the other person has stopped and ask me. And the long lasting power is awesome. I find that either you love this perfume or you hate it. Also this sample is roller ball and not just a spritzer.

I love perfumes from Dior but never tried Poison girl. It’s certainly floral.  Strangely i loved this perfume even though its floral and sweet.  I can’t explain what i like about it .The sample size is certainly what you get as 250 point perk at Sephora. I wished this was a roller ball for easier application

BURBERRY Cat Lashes Mascara

BURBERRY Cat Lashes Mascara

BURBERRY Cat Lashes Mascara

BURBERRY Cat Lashes Mascara

Ahh..Burberry Mascara certainly super expensive brand. I would never spend $30 to try this mascara.

The brush seems really promising. I will surely updated if it’s really worth the price tag.

Guerlain L’Or Pure Radiance Face Primer & La Mer Crème de la Mer

That primer which everyone is talking about so glad to see this in the box. And the La mer Moisturizer

Guerlain L’Or Pure Radiance Face Primer &  La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream

The primer actually has 24 carat gold flakes. I am super excited to try this primer.

The la mer moisturizer is certainly the most expensive sample of the entire box.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick- 49 - bright strawberry pink

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick -49 – bright strawberry pink

This lipstick is exactly what it says ..oil in lipstick. Don’t be alarmed by the bright pink color. When I swatched it looks pretty sheer and my lips love the formula. It’s so moisturizing and hydrating. I would highly recommend a lip liner so it doesn’t feather out



Final Thoughts:

Let’s take look at we what got in the box and their value.

 La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream -0.24oz $40.8

BURBERRY Cat Lashes Mascara -o.11oz $16.5

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick – 0.050z may be ? $12 ?

Guerlain L’Or Pure Radiance Face Primer – 0.16oz  $10.7

Dior Poison Girl – 0.17oz $5

Tom Ford Black Orchid – 0.1oz $22.5

Total Value of the box -$107.5

Cost -$20

I am pretty happy with what I  got in the box.  I won’t purchase all these products looking at the price tags The guerlain primer, the lipstick and the both the perfumes are my favourite. The mascara is also great to test if its  are really worth  it .

Will i get it again Yes certainly. Were you able to get it ? and what were your thoughts ?

Theme : Summer Friday 

This is the first time that the bag was wrapped in a pink paper.

I am digging this transparent ice cream cone bag. The see thru feature is great when you are travelling and its helps to find things quickly.

May Ipsy Bag Super Cute 🙂

City Color Cosmetics Bold Brow Eyebrow Powder in Medium $4 & Beauty & Pin-Ups
Fearless Hair Rescue Masque $10

The City color bold brow powder duo kind of surprised me. I had no experience with brow powders,so this was something new to try and it really works great. The darker shade is perfect and i mix in the lighter one to customise if required. The angled brush is also quite nice.Once I have filled my brows I set them with a brow gel. This is one of my go to brow product.

Pin-Ups Fearless Hair Rescue Masque- Hair mask are my favourite when pampering myself once a while. Also it’s had become a necessity now that my hair goes through so much heat and product. The size seems adequate for 1 or more then one usage.

 IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara in Black Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin

IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara in Black – This is one of my holy grail mascara. Especially this travel size is my favourite. This mascara always gives compliments . I remember someone even asked me what lashes are you wearing and that’s how i know it’s a winner.

Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin – Another great brand, I always enjoy a good highlighter. If you like be dewy in summer which i love to. This shade is certainly perfect and can be used as eyeshadow. The powder is finely milled and not too glittery. Also I am glad the size of the pan is not tiny like some of the Balm cosmetics one. It went right into my z palette.

CAILYN Cosmetics Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet in #32 Practicable

CAILYN Cosmetics Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet in #32 Practicable $19

A matte liquid lipstick in the shade Practicable described as cinnamon nude. Full size product which is always great. This liquid lipstick has a moussy texture doesn’t dry that quickly, didn’t dry my lips and faded  away smoothly. This shade doesn’t look that dark on my lips it’s like my lips but better..in other words perfect nude. Also it works much better if you apply one thin layer.

 Final Thoughts:

The total value for the bag is $54 for which I paid $10.That’s hands down highest value for the Ipsy bag and i love the transparent bag. This bag had awesome products from great brands. Super hero mascara one of my holy grail , the UD highlighter and the liquid lipstick were some of my favourites.

The cute bag

Sephora always gets cute design on the bag. The bag is not of great quality but the design is definitely cute.

coverfx-primer

COVER FX Illuminating Primer -$6

I have used a matte primer from Coverfx. This is a good size sample. This primer gives natural illumination and not too much glitter or shine. Also it didn’t make skin too oily so thats great 🙂

sephora-gel-n-laura-mercier

SEPHORA COLLECTION Ultra Shine Lip Gel- Pin Up Pink-$10.9 & Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour -Rosegold-$17.4

If you ask me Buxom Glosses are my favourite. But i think i have found a new favorite. These sephora Lip Gel are great for moisturizing and they do give some color to my lips. The sample is a good size. Don’t be intimidated by the hot pink color. They are not that pigmented but they give the lips that wet look without being sticky.The applicator is weird shape like a paddle.

The product I was most excited to see was the Laura Mercier Caviar stick in rose gold. This sample is more than half of the full size. The color is gorgeous and stays put for long hours. I have tested this stick for an entire day and it lasted through my cardio workout. I think this is most easiest way to do an eyelook. I just used this stick on its own and looks fabulous

glamglow

GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD® Clearing Treatment-$17.25  The Estée Edit Dissolve the Drama 2-in-1 Makeup Remover + Cleanser-$2.4

This would be my second product from Glamglow,initially sephora has sent  mud cleanser and it was really nice size sample. Now this is sample size can get me around 2 to 3 uses. I used this mask the other day and i didn’t really feel any difference. I feel the origins charcoal mask is much better mask.

Now on the estee edit makeup remover. This is my first product from this brand. I had great expectations from this remover but it just leaves a oily residue and its did not even take out my mascara. I have to go in with a normal cleanser to take the residue off. Not really loving this product

Stella McCartney POP

Sephora Play box always has perfume sample as a bonus item. This perfume smelled like roses and lasted a long time. I never like floral scents but somehow this one was really nice.

card

The box also includes a play by sephora card, do take the advantage of the 50 extra points when buying any product in store.

sephora-final

Value of Play of sephora:$53.95

Overall the box had good products from brands I would love to try.Some didnt work out for me,but thats why I love this subcription box.

Play by sephora does send out  variations of this box, so what did you get in your box ? Let me know in the comments below. Till next time….

Theme: ROCKSTARLET

Isn’t the bag so cute and I can feel that material is so soft. It’s so apt for the festive season. I think Ipsy is just stepping up their game. Last bag was also super cute and this time they just nailed it. How cute is the star zipper and the golden inner lining in the bag.

Formula X -Huntress & Tarte Maracuja Oil

Tarte cosmetics deluxe maracuja oil-$6.7

I haven’t tried this oil strangely. I have combination skin type and it scares the hell out of me to use an oil.But i think as the weather gets cold I would add this to my matte foundation and see how it goes. Also it works for a blowout i hope this does not weigh my hair down.

Formula X Nail Polish Huntress – $1.81

I love getting nail polishes in the bag. Especially from brand like Formula X they seem to last long on my nails . Ipsy describes this polish as “Green with envy. This deep emerald shade with flecks of gold will make even the trendiest trendsetters jealous.” It’s certainly green but the flecks of gold can’t be seen when applied. (Also they are on sale on sephora.com full size for $5 )

Formula X Nail Polish Huntress Swatched

 

ciate-n-mascara

Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in Diva & theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash® Mascara

Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in Diva-$5.85

I love matte lipsticks and red is the perfect color for this time of the year. But this one is not my favourite. The color is beautiful and it doesn’t dry out the lips. But it transfers like hell goes off everywhere. I like the formula. If it would have stayed on place it would be perfect.

theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash® Mascara-$5.6

Thanks to subscription like Ipsy I haven’t bought any mascaras in a long time. This mascara has most of the good things. The brush is almost similar to the benefit roller lash and gives ton of volume and curl. But this formula is little wet and  would say use a light hand. One coat was good, when tried to do second layer it clumped my lashes.

Bonvivant Botanical Pure Masks

Bonvivant Botanical Pure Masks- $3 each 

I love sheet masks and three sheet mask are such bang for the buck. I am most excited for the Chamomile + Tea Tree Mask cools and tightens pores while deeply moisturizing.  I have tried bonvivant masks before and they work just great.

Final Thoughts :

I loved 4 out of 5 items. The Ciate liquid lipstick could have been my favourite but its transfers. The total value of the bag is $28.96 which is so much more than the $10 cost. The bag is a stunner and its going in my handbag as I write this post.

Ipsy sends out different version of bags. What did you get in this month’s bag and what was your favourite item? Let me know in the comments below.

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-$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

                                                                      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 ?
