Happy Monday Bookish Babes! If you’ve been following my blog for the last few months you know that I like to do a first impression of the Sephora Play box and then two (or three) weeks later post a full review on the products after I’ve had time to fully test them. Today I want to chat about the September box and what I thought about all the goodies that came in it.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day® Night Cap Overnight Perfector: I didn’t use this quite as much as I should have to fully test it out, but I do have some thoughts. This did make my hair smoother and less frizzy the day after using it. I will also say that it didn’t weigh my fine hair down which was awesome! I plan on continuing to testing this out, but so far I do think it’s a good product.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Shine Lipstick: You guys, this lipstick straight up sucked. It’s a very sheer formula that clings horribly to every little dry patch on your lips. The sheerness made this very streaky on me and I just did not like it at all. I would not recommend spending your money on this, there are much better lipsticks at the drugstore.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel: The ever hyped Anastasia Brow Gel, I was pretty excited when I found this in my box! When people say this is like cement for your eyebrows they aren’t kidding, however I did find that it made my brows pretty crunchy and even a little shiny which isn’t my favorite. I overall think this is a good brow gel, but I sure as hell don’t think it’s worth $22.
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner: Oh I was so excited to try this!! I have pretty shaky hands so I’ve been wanting a good pen liquid liner for a while and have heard great things about this one. I found this extremely easy to use and the fine tip made it easy to control the thickness of my wings. My only complaint is if you have watery eyes (I sometimes have that happen in the outer corners of my eyes) and touch this liner while it’s wet with tears it will start to come off. I found that out at a friends wedding recently, luckily it was an evening wedding with dim lighting. If you have any suggestions for totally budge and water proof pen liners let me know!
Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation®: So far I haven’t been overly impressed by the moisturizers sent in this subscription…and this one was no different. This product claims: “An oil-free moisturizer with a multi-fruit AHA complex to even the skintone and smooth the skin’s texture.” I found this to be pretty lightweight and it did a decent job of moisturizing, I just wasn’t wowed by it. This did work nicely under makeup and a little bit went a long way. Personally, I think something that is $65 for 3 oz had better be fanfreakingtastic and this was just okay for me.
Atelier Cologne Collection Azur – Sud Magnolia: Every month Sephora Play includes a perfume sample, which I personally really enjoy. These allow me to really test out a fragrance before I decide to using my hard earned cash on it. If you’ve been following these reviews for a few months you know that I LOVE perfumes that have some musk in them and this one delivers on that! This was a really great romantic scent that was still grounded by the musk, keeping it from being overly girly. I’ve liked other perfume samples better so I’m not sure I would go out and purchase this, but I would be completely happy getting it as a gift!
That wraps up my thoughts on the September Sephora Play box! As soon as the post office decides to deliver my October box I’ll get up a first impression for you guys!
