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 ?

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.

Ipsy Bag May 2017

Ipsy Bag May 2017

 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.

Okay don’t throw away the flyer it has lot of information about the products and lot of tips & tricks

thebag

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….

November Ipsy Bag

Subscription: Ipsy

Cost: 10$ ( shipping included)

Ships to : US and Canada

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.

Sephora Play Box October 2016

Hey everyone how was the weekend and who is still in trying to get thru the Monday blues. Anyways I received my October Sephora Play box and this time I didn’t get any shipping/tracking details . I even don’t know how long it was in my mailbox.

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

flyer-and-open

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 !!!

nudestix2

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

                                                                      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 ?

Whats up fellas,

Its that time of the month when Ipsy bag arrives yayyy !!!

Subscription: Ipsy

Cost: 10$ ( shipping included)

Ships to : US and Canada

Theme: Black Magic

Ipsy October Bag

 Ipsy October Bag

Isn’t this bag so pretty and so apt for the theme Black magic ??? It perfectly suits the halloween spirit:)

Ipsy bag cute zipperIsnt ghost on the zipper so cute….I love the detail on the bag. I think this so far my favourite bag in this year.

Now enough about the enough bag let’s see what i got in my bag ?

The Balm Cabana Boy Blush- Swatched

                                      The Balm Cabana Boy Blush- Swatched $1.4

I love to get stuff from the Balm i feel this brand doesn’t get  the fair share of hype. Talking about the blush certainly a pretty color and has a satin finish but the pan is so small that i can’t get my blush brush in it. But I can use this as eyeshadow.

Pur dirty Girl Mudd Mask

                                         Pur dirty Girl Mudd Mask-$3.60

This is the first time i have received a product from the brand Pur. The size of the sample is decent i think i can around 3 to 4 uses.Tried this mask the other day and i have felt my skin was softer and not drying that’s something mud mask do to my skin

tre’StiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Belize Bordeaux-$10.6

For a matte lipstick certainly a good formula not pigmented. It acts like a sheer matte lipstick with hydration.

shaderbrush

Lottie London Perfectly Precise Eyeshadow Brush-$15

I love to get brush in subscription bags. It’s a full size item and I hate cleaning brushes so this will come in handy.

Ciaté London Fierce Flicks Eyeliner-$20

Ciate Fierce flicks has a felt tip eyeliner. It works great for winged liner and is quite pigmented but not cry proof !! I just feel these felt tip eyeliners dry out too soon. Hope this doesn’t dry quickly. Price was wise it’s certainly up there.

Final Thoughts : I loved 3 out of 5 items. The blush would have been my favourite but it’s so tiny and the matter lipstick is nothing out of the ordinary. The total value of the bag is $50.67 which is so much more than the $10 cost (without including the cost of the super cute bag )

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.

Ipsy vs Play by Sephora September 2016

Good morning everyone …… here is a comparison of what i got in my September Ipsy Bag vs Play by Sephora ..i know its kinda late…but it’s better late than never right. Let’s get started

Before we head to the bag some info about the subscription.

Ipsy is monthly beauty and makeup subscription all for 10$ including shipping. Every month ipsy sends out four to five sample and deluxe size products with a makeup bag. There are different combinations of products depending upon your style profile.

When you subscribe for ipsy you need to answer the questionnaire which helps ipsy to decide the best combination of products.

Subscription: Ipsy

Cost: 10$ ( shipping included)

Theme: GLAMZON

 

Ipsy Bag September 2016

The Ipsy Bag

Love the bag it has some girls printed metallic print. I only feel bad because the bag had  a chemical smell. It’s been almost a week the bag was kept in open and i can still smell it.

card-backside

 

Eva NYC Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner

Eva NYC Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner – $2

Feels like a combo of dry shampoo and conditioner. Smells good and i like that it’s a good travel size. Certainly going to use in my upcoming travel.

belif cosmetics The True Cream – Moisturizing bomb- $7.6

I was so happy to see this item in my bag. I have tested this moisturizer as perk from sephora. I can use this sample for couple of weeks and the best part is that it’s not a foil packet.

BelláPierre Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Autumn Glow

BelláPierre Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Autumn Glow-$20

This blush is not really a blush for my skin tone but it works like highlighter as it’s so shimmering. It’s certainly full size item in fact when i checked  on BelláPierre Cosmetics website they sell 4g version and what i received was 6g.

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme-$10

I was super excited for this lip injection but i must say this is not for me. It just doesn’t tingle but it burns . I tried this on my bare lips and omg it felt as if my lips were on fire. It’s certainly an expensive product. I am glad i got to try the sample first.

Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Nail Polish in Holy Fuchsia

Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Nail Polish in Holy Fuchsia $6

I have a love hate relationship with be a bombshell products. Most of the time the product works great but they have strange chemical smell which goes away but when you are applying them it will be noticed.This product  exactly falls in the same category great color,two coats and i was done. But the smell was too much for me.I wished they took care of this issue and i would certainly buy more products from them.

Now let’s move to Play by Sephora.

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: The Unbasic Basics

sephora-play-sept-2016

The box includes PLAY Book which has the tips and tricks. Also don’t forget the pass you can use the pass for free tutorial and 50 extra  beauty insiders points on any in store purchase.

The play by Sephora bag

All the goodies are packed in this cute bag. I like to reuse these bags eg:  for hair ties ..you know how they disappear

SEPHORA COLLECTIONRouge Shine Lipstick Love Spell

SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Shine Lipstick Love Spell- $3.37

Have never tried these rouge shine lipsticks. The color is kind too pale for my skin tone but they are so hydrating and has that candy gum fragrance. I am not so mad at the fragrance,it fades away quickly so does the lipstick the lasting power is not that great needs to be reapplied but i love the hydration it gives.

 

katvon-d-eyeliner

Kat Von D Tattoo liner – Trooper $7

This is certainly a repeat offender,got this in my march 2016 play sephora bag. I am glad they included it in this bag since this one of my favourite eyeliners. The sample which I received earlier is now kind of started to dry out and was in need of new one. So yay …this eyeliner is a winner.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day® Night Cap Overnight Perfector

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day® Night Cap Overnight Perfector-$7

I love the living proof products but they are so expensive. So whenever i get a deluxe sample it makes the subscription so worth it .This one seems to be overnight mask,  pillow safe ..interesting to me ..will update on my instagram how it works.

ole-heriksen

Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation-$5.60

Another repeat offender from the  september 2015 box.But i would have liked if sephora would have checked if had tested this product earlier. I am not mad but the reason for these subscription box is to try out new things right???There is nothing wrong with the moisturizer I can get at least  3 weeks of use as you need very little.

anastasia-clear-brow-gel

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel – Clear $6.68

I always wanted to try this brow gel and i must say it certainly worth the hype. Great sample size.

 

perfume

Atelier Cologne Collection Azur – Sud Magnolia

This is a bonus item and sephora does send out very expensive perfume samples. It smelled fresh and citrusy.

Ipsy September 2016

Ipsy September 2016

sephora-play-box

Play By Sephora September 2016

Value of Ipsy:$45.6

Value of Play of sephora:$29.65

Overall both subscription performed very well in fact the retail value of  Ipsy is much higher than play by sephora. Ipsy could have won this one but for the too faced lip injection which is a complete toss  and so Sephora is the clear winner 🙂

By the way both these subscriptions have variations so what did you get in your bag ? Let me know in the comments below. Also if you like to sign up for any of these subscriptions here is the link
