Sephora Luxe: Skincare by Age: 50's Review | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

These used to be called just Play bags that were extras that you could purchase on the Sephora site but now the new ones are actually called Play Smarts and there are quite a few available currently. I love these as they're usually higher end brands, more samples, or bigger samples. Yes, I realize I'm not only paying $10 for samples from Sephora that used to be free, but now I'm paying $15-$20 each bag/box for more samples. It's a problem, I'm dealing with it, but I actually like getting these extra bags because more/different things.
This bag was marketed for those in their 50's, which I am not, but I wanted to share the various options that Sephora has for skincare and to promote that they have realized that they have customers over 30!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Luminous Matter Review | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

Disclosure: This was gifted to me, meaning I had no obligation to review it but I didn't pay for it either. I admin the BEGL fan group on Facebook as well as help run the IG. I have received PR from this brand in the past. Find out more info here.

BEGL is currently on a possible permanent hiatus. I'll let you know if she comes back. I miss her polishes.

Luminous Matter is a blue to purple shifting base with teal shimmer, small silver holo glitters and tiny iridescent flecks.

Walmart Beauty Box - Refresh & Extend Review | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

So instead of the Walmart Beauty Box subscription, I found quite a few Walmart Beauty Favorites boxes and have one more after this one to share. All of the boxes were around the $7-$9 range but I don't remember exactly how much each individual box cost.
The theme for this box is Refresh & Extend and it's full of dry shampoos and deep conditioners/masks. I like this box idea because if you like something, you can easily repurchase it at Walmart and nothing is super expensive.

Still trying (and failing) to be a fancy beauty guru.

Target Beauty Box - September 2018 Masks Review | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

I am an affiliate for Target. That means if you click one of the links below and make a purchase, I make a commission. For more information, click here.
What is Target Beauty Box?:Target releases a Beauty Box every so often. It has now become a sporadic event, so make sure you subscribe to my email updates to know when the next one comes out! The boxes can be seen prior to purchase, and they are curated 100% with products sold at Target, so you can get the products you love.
How Much is Target Beauty Box?: The price has been anywhere from $5-$10, but you get free shipping with your Beauty Box purchase. You will have to pay taxes if there is a Target in your state, though. Every box comes with a coupon for a Target purchase, which definitely makes it worth the money!
Check out what has been in past Target Boxes here!

I still love the Target Beauty box concept.
