This month I really don’t know how I feel about my Sephora Play Box. I don’t hate it but I’m not crazy about it either. My honest first impression when I opened the box was meh. One because I didn’t receive my bonus perfume like I get every month. Secondly, there wasn’t any real wow items in the box to me. However, the items were items that can be very useful and beneficial. Here’s what I got…
Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Me Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel in Deep
This is a fiber brow gel that is supposed to add volume to the brow. The fiber gel should look like actual brow hair once applied. This came right on time for me because I had just ran out of my brow pencil. it does help to make the eyebrows look fuller, however it’s lacking on the gel side to keep brows in order.
Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream
A face cream for all face types that helps to reduce signs of aging. I’ve been using as a night moisturizer because again my face is oily so I try to stay away from moisturizing during the day. I have to say I notice my skin looks brighter and fresher in the morning.
Sephora Contour Eye Pencil Waterproof 12hr wear (lace)
This is creamy eye pencil says it lasts for 12 hours and is waterproof. I would love to try this with a cat eye. Because of my oily skin my eyeliner smudges, so I would like to see if it will stay put.
Ciate London Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Liquid Lipstick (Diva)
This is a moisturizing lip color that is supposed to last.I love this color. I think its really going to pop with my new hair color. Yes it does last. The swatch I applied on my hand lasted after a shower and little more time after wards. I was able to show the color to other people later that day because the color stayed put.
Deva Curl Melt Into Moisture Conditioning Mask
The key ingredient in the conditioner is matcha butter. Matcha butter helps to promote hair growth, conditions, and add shines. I have a ton of conditioners so I might give this to one of my curly girls. One of the product features states it makes curls silky and soft, so I’m sure they will love it.
Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Oil
Honestly I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get a perfume. However, I do think I might try this as a hot oil treatment especially now that I am blonde and I went ham on my hair this month. See the story on the that in my last post . The nourishing oil hydrates hair and helps to tame frizziness and makes the hair feel and look softer. If you are blonde you understand that your hair can easily look dry and brittle from the bleach. I am helping this would be an added boost to getting my hair back to health.
Although there wasn’t anything in the box that I was excited about. The products wasn’t terrible. I plan to use all of of them just to give them a try. Honestly some of the item I kind of need. I would like for Sephora to put better makeup items in the box. A bronzer, eye shadow, or blush would be awesome!!!
Peace and Love
