Play! by Sephora, March 2017
March’s theme is The Gleam Team, the perfect way to glow. It includes glowing primer and highlighter; also includes an unimpressed white cloth bag.
First item is the Glam Glow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow; it claims to hydrate, blur and enhances a lit-from-within complexion finish. I used it as my primer before foundation, it did provide a luminous look and kept my skin looking hydrated; however, I am not a big fan of the smell, it has a very strong sweet candy smell that doesn’t go away as quickly as I hope it would. Also, it doesn’t keep my foundation last, it actually made my normal skin looked quite oil after a few hours wear. Perhaps it’s good for people with dry skin or a night out that doesn’t need to last the entire day.
Then we have Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter; it claims to offer a luminous, soft-focus sheen with cream-to-powder formula. Personally, I do not see the “powder” finish in this; it does provide a very nice sheen and I used it to highlight my cheek bones and the bridge of my nose after foundation and before powder. The shade reminds me of Champagne Pop from Becca.
The Surreal Deal by Josie Maran; it’s a surreal skin argan finishing balm that skim luminous primer that provides all over glow to the skin. I don’t have a swatch photo here because you can’t even see the swatch. When I first put it on, there was a slight sheen; however, the sheen quickly disappeared after blending out. It gave a soft and matte finish to the skin, no smell (which I like), and it blur out my pores. I do like to use this as my face primer, it made my foundation goes on a lot smoother.
Next’s up, Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Pink; it’s a super-cream, waterproof eyeshadow stick. This is a second one I received from Play box, in different shade. Unfortunately, I am not a fan. It doesn’t last that long on my eyelids, it creases after about 4hrs of wear and I don’t believe I have oily eyelids.
Then we have the Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast; it’s a weightless spray that delivers long lasting volume and adds texture to the hair. Now, I am a huge fan of Living Proof products! My favorite from them is the Dry Shampoo, I always have to have 3 bottles at home. This Full Dry Volume Blast does make my hair looks noticeably fuller; I just spray them on my roots, in sections, then use my fingers to distribute the products evenly.
Lastly, the bonus fragrance sample – Chloe Fleur de Parfum. It’s a floral fragrance that has the notes of lemon and white cedar essence, rose, and cherry blossom.
