Hi friends! Today I have the Sephora Play! July Subscription! Yay! So I recently saw that Sephora points expire after 18 months. Basically, that means no more stocking up. That’s going to make it harder to save for those large ticket rewards. I’m not in an uproar about it but it still stinks. Let’s get started with the review!
Let’s breakdown the items…
That’s it for the July Sephora Play! Subscription. How do you all feel about the upgraded membership for the one-time only black box? What about the points? Xo
Hi friends! My birthday is in six days and then I kiss my 20s goodbye. When I did my last Sephora purchase I decided to cash in some points and grab my birthday gift. They had the Fresh skincare set, a Jack Black skincare set and this new Tarte blush and lipstick mini that I’ve never seen before. I was intrigued and chose this cute guy.
Look at how cute this little duo is! Both are very light shades that compliment every skin tone.
I took a bunch of photos of this cute bundle and yes the shades are exclusive to the birthday set.
The back of the box shows that this set is vegan and cruelty-free! Yay! It has an ingredient list of both the blush and the lipstick and their names!
This was a pretty shot of both products. My vanity is proving to be a nice place to take detailed photos.
Now for the swatches. I did a brush and finger swatch of the blush and a lip swatch of the lipstick. Enjoy!
Here is the arm swatch of the blush. If you notice, it is very subtle when a brush is used.
And now for the lip swatch!
Please excuse the discontent on my face. It was in the middle of a year wave and I wasn’t too happy. Haha. This shade is a darker nude that works great with my skin tone.
There you all have it! I enjoyed both products and this nude lipstick actually doesn’t look awkward like some of them do on my skin. Xo!
Hi friends! I received this box yesterday but I already blogged and I was helping my mom with her hair and doing one of those Tony Moly Therapy Clay masks! I have another fun post coming today because my Storybook Cosmetics Wizardry and Witchcraft eyeshadow palette is out for delivery! Yay! I’m purposely waiting to blog about it today.
In other news, Chris Cornell passed away. Rest in peace to a talented performer. My good friends took their daughter to have open heart surgery this morning so I’m also hoping for the best for her. ❤ She was diagnosed as having ASD (Atrial Septal Defect) and has a six hour procedure.
This month’s Play box featured some cult favorites that are in the rise. Included is a highlighter stick, perfume, a hair mask, lip plumper, resurfacing mask, and a blurring stick.
I’m going to go over the samples now and show you pictures of course! 🙂
To be honest, my lips are pretty full on their own so I probably won’t be using much of this product.
I’m going to use this today with the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask and I will check in with you all after I use both.
Edit: this stuff smells great and makes my hair feel very light and healthy.
I’m seriously excited to use this because I love masks! Considering these are made in small batches and have natural ingredients, I’m sold!
Edit: I kept this on for the full 30 minutes. Like most peel masks do, it tightened like crazy. But you didn’t have to peel it off, you just washed your face with warm water and it dissolved. My skin feels great!
Despite what I heard about clogged pores and breakouts, I’m going to still try this out. I’ve been super curious about this brand since I’ve seen their holographic sticks.
I always say that most highlighters are wasted on me because I wear glasses so I have this to my mom because I know she’ll use it 😃
I love this perfume sample. It made the entire box smell fantastic. I was overall pretty happy with the samples given! Xo
Hey everybody! I finally got everything figured out with my website as far as the mapping and technical aspects go. I received this box yesterday but I was feeling quite like Jack Torrance because I’ve been snowed in my house for three days so for my sanity I took some time outside. Anywhooo, back to the Sephora Play! Box.
This month was all about shine. Products from Benefit, Glamglow, Josie Maran, Bobbi Brown, Living Proof, and Chloé.
Here’s a photo dump of all the products that came in this month!
Oddly enough, everything in this box works well and smells great!
