Let's measure how well the last Play! by Sephora of the year does.



Info card.


I love the theme of this bag. It's adorable.


Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1 ($2.17) - I like this, but I don't find that it does a lot in the volumizing or texturizing aspect (two of the three '3-in-1s) but I do find that my hair isn't as oily after use. It's not the best dry shampoo I've used, but it's definitely in the top ten. Keep.

Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick (Passion Red) ($7.33) - Send me a coral, send me a pink, even send me a berry, just don't send me yet another red lipstick. This is a stunning shade and the formula is nice but it's not for me. Pass. 


Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette (Golden Hour) ($6.90) - Because I have this actual palette in full size, I didn't keep this. I love almost all of the Cover Shot Palettes, the formula is usually amazing and the color stories are gorgeous. Pass.

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream ($4.80) - I have a prescription topical medication that I use to get rid of redness so this seemed redundant. I passed this along.


Atelier Cologne (Clémentine California) (Sample) - I really love this perfume and I love the sample because it fits nicely in my purse and if it spills a bit, I'm not worried because it's just a sample! Keep.

Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen ($11.00) - I don't do liquid eyeliner. Pass.


Swatches top to bottom: Clinique, Make Up For Ever, Smashbox.


This bag was valued at $32.20, but it was a mixed bag when it comes to likes. I obviously gave away more than I kept and what I kept wasn't super valuable, so it was money wasted. This happens and I have found that starting with this bag, the Sephora bags sometimes just suck for me.

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