August 16 Unboxing-Sephora Play!

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.

    I have the same problem with eyeliner and watery eyes. Maybe should try this.
