Play! by Sephora, September 2016

Good morning lovelies! It’s been crazy for me at work the past few weeks; the only thing that relaxes me is to play with makeup and skincare lol (what’s new?). Well, this month’s Play! by Sephora box has raised the bar up a little bit.play-sept

First item is the Dr. Jart+ Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer. I like how it is in a decent size, enough to test out for a good amount of time; it will really help when it comes to skincare products.  It’s a water based moisturizer that gives boost and hydration to the skin; it has my favorite ingredient in it, which is Hyaluronic Acid.

Second item is the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Night Cap Overnight Perfector. While I love most of the Living Proof products, I am not a fan of putting products in my hair and leave overnight. You’re supposed to apply this to your hair before bed, leave on overnight then shampoo it off in the morning. It’s a good size though, I am sure someone from my family would like to have it.

Third item is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel. It’s a clear brow gel that sets and define your brow and keeps brows in place. I am already using this product so I am very pleased to have a backup.

Fourth item is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper. It’s a well known waterproof brush-tip liquid liner. I love these, great to have a travel size to bring with me next time I go on vacation.

However, I find this is a little too tiny; being it’s a Sephora product inside a Sephora subscription box, I would appreciate more if they can throw in a full size for every now and then.

Lastly, the bonus fragrance sample that it comes with every month, which I don’t really care for. I just don’t find myself using these samples, I usually gather them in a big batch then give them out to friends and family. This month is the Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Verte. Note: Lily, mandarin, neroli oil, and jasmine.

Overall, it’s a great box as I will be using 4 out of 6 products in this box. How do you like yours? 🙂

 

 

 

 

Las Vegas Beauty Haul

Yeah! Another haul! I celebrated Labor Day with my husband in Last Vegas about two week ago; this time I didn’t go too crazy about spending my money on beauty products (because husband was watching lol).

I saw the newest Chanel foundation, LE TEINT ULTRA TENUE ULTRAWEAR FLAWLESS FOUNDATION. The Sales Associate color matched me with 20 Beige and it’s the one I bought; although I really think that I should be getting 21 Beige, 21 is a tad more yellower, but they didn’t have that in stock.

Then, I was browsing the Hermès store, perfume section; I felt in love with the Kelly Calèche, it’s a beautiful, light, petal scent that smells like fresh roses. My husband surprised me for purchasing this for me and I’ve wearing it since:

haul-3

Lastly, I bought three (3) new liquid lipsticks from Inglot, a yellow base primer for overall redness color correct; they gave me a complimentary eye shadow for spending over certain amount. So far, I am really enjoying the liquid lipsticks, they are long wearing (a good 6hrs on me), don’t transfer even after drinking (from a straw) or eating (salad or non-oily food). I’m not a big fan of the primer though, it doesn’t do anything for me; I will need to test this one out more before giving a in-depth review.

Thank you for stopping by everyone! Enjoy the rest of the week! Image result for corgi

Play! by Sephora, August 2016

I received my Play! by Sephora, August 2016 box a few days ago; and I’m not too impressed with their selection this month. I feel like they didn’t select the products according the the test that I took, because I wouldn’t personally ask for samples at the store for most of these products myself. Plus the sizes of these products are not really “deluxe-sized”, they are probably the size of what you get when you ask for a sample in store.  A little disappointed; however, I will try to try out everything and report back with the result here on my blog or on my Instagram . 

This month’s box includes:

@makeupforeverus Artist Shadow in I-544

@cleanperfume in Reserve Warm Cotton

@algenistbeauty Eye Renewal Balm

@urbandecaycosmeticsPerversion Mascara

@lancomeofficialEnergie Vie Smoothing & Glowing Liquid Care Moisturizer

@sephoracollection Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof in Love Affair

Play! by Sephora, May 2016

I started subscribing to Play! by Sephora in May 2016; it’s a monthly beauty box subscription service that costs $10 per month. It comes with five deluxe-sized samples and one fragrance bonus sample; a one-on-one tutorial session at your local Sephora and 50 bonus points with any purchase in store.

I used to be subscribed to many beauty boxes (Glossy Box, Birch Box, Ipsy, and Allure); I ended up canceling them all because of the choice of selections and poor customer services (especially Allure, I tried contacting them with an issue 4 times with no response). So far, I am pleased with Play! At least I can purchase the products at my local stores and they are most likely be well known brands, or are the products I would love to use on myself.

In May, my box came with:

OriginsMaskimizer™ Skin-Optimizing Mask Primer

Bite BeautyAmuse Bouche Lipstick in Kimchi

BriogeoDon’t Despair, Repair!™ Deep Conditioning Mask

KORRESWild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial

tarteTarteist™ Lip Crayon in Latergram

Atelier CologneOrange Sanguine Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume

Sorry for the late post, I didn’t have a chance to post them; I promise I will post them on-time right when  I receive them from now one! Though, I still need to post the ones from June to August after this. Image result for cute face emoji
