Welcome to Blogmas Day Eleven! I can’t believe Blogmas is almost over, it’s just flown by. Today I thought it would be fun to go through all of the Sephora Play Boxes I’ve received this year and talk about my favorites from each/what I’ve repurchased. I do a monthly favorites each month and I do talk about some of the Play products, but I’ve had more time to use all of them now and really suss them out. So, let’s get into it.
The first bag I got was in February. I did miss the January box so February was my intro to Sephora Play and it was a good intro.
I genuinely love everything in this bag and I use all of them. This eye cream is the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb and it’s my favorite, I talk about it all the time. I will leave links below for each month if you guys want to know more about each of the products.
March brought one of my favorite bags and love for new brands. Prior to this I hadn’t used any Amika products and this hair mask changed things for me. I repurchased this pretty much immediately and I’m still using and loving it. And the Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist with SPF 50 was one of my go-to products this summer. It locked in my look and protected my face, I definitely recommend it.
April was for blurring and shining. The IT Cosmetics Powder has become a fixture in my makeup bag and I love it. The shine part of this comes from the Urban Decay Hi-fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipgloss. When I got this box those had just come out and since then I’ve explored the different colors and I even bought some as little stocking stuffers.
The May Box had a classic vibe to it, the bag itself has a very Americana feel, which I love. I use the Marc Jacobs mascara regularly, it’s in my mascara rotation and I’m wearing the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner today. The YSL Black Opium remains one of my favorite scents of the year.
June gave me a current favorite and two new skincare favorites. When I got this I had been using and loving the Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick in the shade Queen B which is exactly what this is and I was happy to see it. The formulation of these lipsticks is really great, there is a wide range of colors and the color payoff is fantastic. Before this I had never used a water gel before and that changed with the Murad Nutrient-Charged Water Gel, I loved this during the summer months and I have repurchased it. And then there was the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes and Lips. You guys know how much I love this, it’s a great product.
In July I added to my blush collection with this Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush, it’s a really pretty nudey pink. I added to the Caudalie section of my skincare cupboard with the Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Essence. I’m still using this and very much loving it. And I got another one of my favorite lip products, the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask. I really love these, they are incredibly moisturizing and they make your lips feel so soft.
The August Box had a Back To Beauty School theme and it got an A from me. I use pretty much all of these still and I’m happy with them.
In September the bags switched over to these plastic bags with the Snap and Lock style closure, you can fit quite a bit in this bags. This is another month where I’m still using everything that I got and liking it.
October gave me the primer I used today, the Tarte Rainforest of The Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. There are a few different primers I use and they’re all really great. It also gave me the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. I love this, it really brightens the skin and it’s quick absorbing.
November was another really great box and I’m wearing this perfume today. It’s Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue, it smells so good.
I just got the December Box two days ago, my unboxing went up yesterday, so I’ve only used one of the products so far. It’s the Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 02 Nothin’ But Nude and I really like it.
That about wraps it up for this post, Sephora sent me a ton of amazing products this year and if you guys were doing Play I’d love to know what your favorites were.
Until next time, Sephora Play was definitely worth it, I’m excited to continue next year and I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas :).
