Play! by Sephora - January 2017

What is Play by Sephora?: Play! by Sephora is Sephora's own monthly subscription box!

Each box also includes a Play Book (tips and tricks) and a Play Pass (a one-on-one tutorial at Sephora and a bonus 50 points with purchase).

How Much is Play by Sephora?: Play by Sephora is $10/month plus your state's sales tax (if a Sephora is in your store). It ships for free but only to the contiguous 48 states.

I'm not all about this whole 'New Year, time to get healthy' vibe that I'm getting from this bag.
 

Also, no, sweating is not a way to glow. I hate sweating.


Info sheet.


AMOREPACIFIC Color Control Cushion Compact ($5.71) - Neither shade (104 & 106) are my shades so I passed it to my mom. I do really like cushion foundations so I'm considering picking this up if I can try it out in store and see if the lightest shade matches. 

OUAI Treatment Mask ($6.67) - I do enjoy a good hair mask. My hair has been drier and drier so anything to add a bit of moisture will always be accepted and used graciously. The more I use it, the less my hair feels like straw and I love it!


FRXXXTION Stick ($10.00) - Tarte's new gel cleanser that's in a strange stick form. It exfoliates, cleanses, and is a face mask all in one. A little weird, too many things going on at once, and not really my favorite thing. I prefer to do things separately because I don't use exfoliators frequently so this is a little too multi-function.

Tory Burch Love Relentlessly (Sample) - Another floral perfume, just a bit deeper. It's just not my thing, I've never been a fan of floral scents. Instant pass.


Age Prevention Superfood Cream ($12.00) - I don't use products with hyaluronic acid so this was a pass. I'm sure it's good but my skin dries out so easily and I've found products with hyaluronic acid cause more issues than it solves. My skin has been going through a weird phase right now so hopefully, in the future,  I'll be able to use these types of products!

Clinique Almost Lipstick (Black Honey) ($8.50) - I wish I had liked this color, but I just didn't. It feels nice on but it's not enough of a pop of color to like it but it's too deep of a shade that the tint part just doesn't work for me. It just looked like my lips were dirty.


This bag was valued at $42.88, an excellent value for the cost. The items, though, weren't a hit at all and my mother ended up with the majority of the bag. 

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
