Play! By Sephora, February 2017 – The Soft Side
Sorry for the delay in posting February’s box, it’s been extremely busy at work the past month. This box’s theme is The Soft Side, stellar products are only the beginning. I like how they include a silky bag this time to go with the Soft theme. I would say this box provides semi-decent products, there are some lip products that I wanted to try out for a while.
Too Faced Lip Injection Glossy in Milkshake. It’s a lightly tinted gloss that’s made with botanical-infused formula for plumping lips instantly; will also hydrate and soften the lips over time. I always wonder how well these work and boy the tingling sensation is strong! While I don’t mind the tingling part, the gloss did not plump my lips or hydrate and soften my lips. I was a little disappointed, but I guess I saved myself purchasing a full-size.
Nars Velvet Lip Glide in Bound. It’s a semi-matte finish liquid lipstick that’s supposed to stay on all day. I like Nars Velvet Lip Glides, I have a few full sized ones at home, it’s nice to try out an additional shade; Bound is a very pretty nude pink. I won’t say it stays on all day though, unless you don’t plan on eating anything all day. I often find myself reapplying after eating light lunch (salad); if I don’t, the color will fade away. It does wear very comfortably on the lips, it will last as long as I drink my coffee/tea out of a straw and not eating.
Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream. It’s depuffing eye cream that’s infused with coffee beans, gingseng, and magnolia extract. I used to use this eye cream during the day a few years ago and I remember myself enjoying it, it did hydrate my under eyes and brighten them up underneath makeup. Not too sure about the depuffing part because fortunately, I don’t get puffy eyes. It’s nice to have this deluxe sized for travel.
Clinique Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer. It’s a oil free moisturizer and primer in one; supposedly to blur imperfections and provide all day hydration. To be honest, I haven’t had nice surprises trying out Clinique’s products. Their acne line worsen my skin condition so badly back in college and I spent a year on prescription skincare before my skin went back to normal; I’m afraid to try out their products since then. So I might give this to my colleague and see if she likes it, I will report back.
Sephora Collection Lashcraft Length & Volume Mascara in Jet-Black. It’s a volumizing mascara that also lengthen and lift lashes. I personally prefer water-proof mascaras, so this one will be added to the friends & family gift box.
Lastly, the bonus fragrance sample. This month is the Marc Jacobs’ Divine Decadence perfume; description says it’s a effervescent, floral, and bright; top notes are champagne extract, orange blossom, and bergamot. I have a full-sized at home and I love it. This is added to the fragrance sample box that I give away to my friends once a while.
Alrightly, that’s a wrap! Hope you enjoy your Play! boxes. I am still deciding if I should cancel my subscription, I just don’t find myself liking most of the products they select. I will probably wait till after I get my May box since that’s my birthday month. Happy Tuesday lovely! Don’t forget to check my Instagram for more updated posts! ^.^
