I’m just as excited to have received my Sephora August Play! Box as I was my July one. Perhaps it reminds me of being a kid, when getting mail felt magical. Less so now; now it just feels like bills, LOL.
My apologies for being absent last week for my second post. Husband and I are hosting our first Airbnb and it’s…interesting. I have had a lot on my plate.
So now, onto the Sephora August Play! Box
The box again arrived with a cute little “Makeup Geek” bag, as well as an “Elements of Beauty” periodic table. Adorable. As I described previously, there are specifications you get to enter when you subscribe for the Play! box, so they’re kind of individualized, which is awesome.
beautyblender micro.mini This thing is just adorable. I have wanted to try the beautyblender for a while, and this little teeny bugger is the perfect size for a test run. Reading the description in the pamphlet, I’m surprised to find out that beautyblender has been around for 15 years. Clearly, I’ve been missing out! It’s a great shape to get into the under eye area for concealer, or dab on little blemishes (not that any of us get those). The description promises it will double in size when wet.
Too Faced Mascara Melt Off Cleansing Oil I almost can’t believe it took a company this long to invent a mascara remover in a mascara wand form. Sounds elementary, I know, but after years of rubbing at my lashes with makeup remover and scrubbing my face, something I apply directly to lashes before wiping is innovative. I usually wear a coat of waterproof mascara over my regular mascara so I don’t get smudges, so I’m excited to try this one out.
Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Creme Concealers are a difficult area for me, I have to admit. Either they don’t provide enough coverage for my Italian-heritage under eye circles, or the coverage is so heavy that when I smile it creases and I end up looking at least 10 years older. I’m not sure I need the 24-hour coverage that this concealer promises, but the “high-pigment, crease-proof formula” is a definite plus in my book.
Kopari Coconut Melt So…this one confuses me. The pamphlet shows it as a cream, but mine is completely liquefied. I’m puzzled, because it’s been inside since it arrived. The instructions are to “melt a dollop in your hands and apply,” but it’s already melted. And leaking. Not great. Hopefully, the product will be good enough that it’s worth it. This jack of all trades promises to function as a lip balm, nighttime moisturizer, makeup remover, and more.
Kat Von D Saint & Sinner Perfume Two perfume types to try here, folks. Between Sephora Play! and Influenster, I have perfume coming out of my ears. SAINT is a more floral scent, with notes of mandarin, jasmine, and tiare flower, with a base note of musk. SINNER is in the warm and spicy family, with orange blossom, cinnamon, and vanilla. Sounds like smelling like a scone. In all seriousness, they both smell pretty good, so hopefully that’ll translate into smelling good on me.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo OMG, I could not be more excited about this one! All I’ve read is that this is the BEST dry shampoo on the market, bar none. Supposedly there’s a “new patented molecule” that allows Living Proof’s dry shampoo to absorb oil more effectively than any of the competitors out there, leaving hair truly voluminous and refreshed. Will it make me look like Jennifer Aniston? It’s worth a shot.
That’s it for the Sephora August Play! Box
I’m super excited to try out these products and see which ones work, especially the two in here from my “try” list. See, this is why I joined the beauty box program. I knew that at some point, they would send me something I’ve been wanting to try.
