I wanted to post an update because I just received the August 2016, edition of the Sephora Play! box. If you didn’t read my last post where I described what it’s all about click here to read it and catch up!!!
Here’s what I received this month:
Make Up For Ever (MUFE) – Artist Shadow in I-544
This described as a highly saturated iridescent pink granite eyeshadow made with a unique gel-powder formula and ultra-fine pigments for smooth color. I would describe it as more of a purple-taupe. It’s a beautiful color and formula and not glittery or shimmery at all. I’m wearing it as I write this – alone on the lid and blended up through the crease. The full size of this product retails at $15.
Urban Decay – Perversion Mascara
Described as a lengthening and volumizing mascara that coats eyelashes with triple-black pigment and a buildable, creamy formula. It doesn’t say on the packaging or the website if it’s waterproof and it comes off easily with a little make-up remover. This mascara retails at $22 for a full-size.
Lancõme Énergie De Vie – Smoothing & Glowing Liquid Care Moisturizer
A concentrated energizing liquid lotion that visually relieves dullness, diminishes signs of fatigue, and promotes a healthy-looking glow. This is a liquid and I find I spill it trying to get it from my fingers to my face. Otherwise I think it does what it says it does. Full-size retails at $55.
Caudalie – Resveratrol Eye Lifting Balm
Innovative eye-cream that visibly lifts and smooths the eye area with a breakthrough patented formula while reducing the look of dark circles and puffiness. I’ve used it twice and it definitely plumps the fine lines under my eyes and outer corners. Full-size retails for $62.
Sephora Collection – Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof in Flirting Game
This is a creamy, easy to apply pencil with long-lasting, 12 hour waterproof formula in a shimmery taupe shade. It definitely stays put once it sets so if you want to smudge it out, do it quickly. I’m impressed with its lasting effect because I have watery eyes and my eyeliner usually slides off easily. Full-size retails for $10.
CLEAN – Reserve Blonde Rose
Classic yet edgy bouquet of rose, jasmine and peony above a sandalwood base evokes feminine sophistication and allure. I don’t usually like flowery smells but I don’t smell flowers at all in this perfume. It smells more like sandalwood along with a clean and airy note. I love it. Standard 3.4oz. size retails for $90.
All in all, I’m as – if not more impressed with this month’s box as I was with July’s.
