Sephora Play Box Review

Okay so here is my take on it. I received excellent products my first box! I will keep a running list of all of my new boxes on here with pictures so you check them out as well. A lot of what I got was sample size but it is the quality of sample that is important. I got high priced luxury items. The retinoid serum alone is worth $85 for the full size. I have been wanting to try this so the sample they gave me was great. I got a full size NARS lipstick pencil which I didn’t think I would love the color. But to my surprise I did. It was a muted brown shade but I really love it.

The reusable bag isn’t as cute as Ipsy. But at this point in my makeup game, I have so many reusable bags I’m not worried about it. Plus if putting a bag like this in the box gives them more wiggle room for better samples than that it good with me.

October 2019 Sephora Play Box Review

sephora play box October 2019
  • SMASHBOX photo finish primer
  • Tarte water foundation rainforest of the sea
  • Beauty blender long-wear foundation sample
  • Makeup forever foundation sample
  • Urban decay all nighter makeup setting spray sample
  • Moroccanoil night body serum

I have to say this is definitely one of my favorites so far! Foundation is so expensive and I got three nice size samples of foundations that I am absolutely in love with! I have never even heard of Beauty blender foundation but I think this will be my new go-to!

I paid $10.70 for this entire box and I got quite a bit of foundation that would normally be very pricey.

This box was 100% win. I was considering unsubscribing to a few boxes since I am subscribed to so many right now but with the quality of these products and for such a little price I just can’t stop!

  3. Living Proof- Full thickening cream
  4. Skinfix- redness recovery antioxidant overnight mask
  5. Peace Out- acne healing dots
  6. Maison Margiela- Replica perfume

To sum it all up…

I’ll be def keeping this subscription beauty box for now. In my opinion it is definitely affordable and you get a lot of bang for your buck. I feel like these items are a higher quality than my other boxes. Definitely better than birchbox for the same price.
