Yesterday I received my November Play Box from Sephora and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Beauty For Self Care, meaning that these are products you can use and play with when you’re treating yourself to a chill night. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure on the top. The front is a pretty see through purple with various beauty and lifestyle products and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘Jugar, Spielen, Giocare, PLAY! #SephoraPlay’ written in purple. Those all mean play in various languages, there is another language as well but it’s an Asian language and I don’t even know how I would attempt to write that.
The first product we have is the Glamglow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This is a moisturizer that you can either wear on it’s own or under your foundation. Because this is infused with pearl particles it highlights as it hydrates. I’m wearing this right now and when I put it on I was surprised at how glowy it was. It smells nice, sunk in to my skin quickly and I can tell that I’m more glowy than usual. Overall I really like it.
Next we have the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30. You put this on after your serum and before your foundation. It’s supposed to give you sun protection, a good base to work with and because of the tiger grass, reduce any redness you have plus protect your skin from environmental aggressors. I’ve used one Dr. Jart+ product in the past and I did like it so we’ll see.
Moving on we have the Lancôme Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Mascara. This is a mascara that promises big, full lashes in one coat. The brush you get with this is an odd shape, it’s shaped like an S. I have tried Lancôme mascaras in the past, but the one I used I really didn’t like, the formula was too thick for my liking. But this one seems to be better. I will definitely let you guys know what I think.
The next product we have is the Nars Satin Lipstick in Tolede. This is a really pretty rosy pink shade with a satin finish. I’m wearing this today and I honestly love it. It’s really creamy, nicely pigmented and it has great staying power. I’ve been eating and drinking and it’s holding up really well. I would definitely recommend it.
The second to last product we have is the Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey. This is a unique lip product, it’s a lip balm meets lipstick. So you get this nice plum lipstick color but with a lip balm texture. This swatched really nicely and the color is really pretty. I’ll definitely let you guys know what I think, I’ll probably post pictures on Instagram.
And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium perfume. I have a bottle of this and I absolutely love it. It’s a slightly spicy and very warm scent. It has vanilla undertones and it’s very well balanced. If you haven’t smelled this and you get the chance definitely do, it’s so good.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your November Play Boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.
Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).
