Sephora Haul; Too Faced, KVD And More

Hi everyone,

Recently I placed a little Sephora order and because I just got everything delivered, I thought it would be the perfect time to go through it and show you what I bought with a little review thrown in.

The first thing I picked up is the Too Faced Pretty Rich Diamond Light Eyeshadow palette. I’ve been wanting this for a while, I think it’s a gorgeous palette and it was on sale, so it was the perfect time to get it.

IMG_5634

This palette is a diamond shape with 16 shadows and a cute little mirror on the top.

IMG_5635

Within these 16 shadows you get 4 gel pressed glitters and those are the ones that are shaped like diamonds. I really like the way this palette is laid out and the color story is quite nice.

IMG_5636

I swatched this on my arm row by row like it shows in the palette. The first row is more like lighter to medium neutrals. The first shadow we have is the glitter and it’s Diamonds For Breakfast. This is a silvery glitter with a little bit of red and brown glitter mixed in. Next to that is It’s Designer, a really light matte nude, then there’s Fancy That, a matte taupey shade. And the last shade in the row is Filthy Rich, a shimmery lighter brown with gold shimmer. I can tell this is going to be one of my go to shadows.

IMG_5637

The second row is all about pinks. The first shadow we have is Clutch Your Pearls. In the pan this looks like a nice white with maybe a little pink/purple, but when this hits the light it’s incredible. It has that duo chrome effect so when it is in the light you really see that pinky purple. It’s so pretty. Next to that is Princess Cut, this is a super pretty goldy/pink. It is on the lighter side but it does have some bigger glitter flecks in it that really pump up the shadow. Then there’s the glitter, Diamond Glitterati. This is a deeper pink and when I look at this it makes me think Barbie. The last shadow in this row is Highly Selective and that is a shimmery rose gold.

IMG_5638

The third row is golds and browns and starts with the glitter, Fluent In Diamonds. This is a medium gold and if you were wanting a straight up gold glitter, this would be the one to pick. Next to that is It’s Cashmere, a matte cashmere brown, this would be a great transition shade. Then there’s Don’t Carat All, which is a shimmery gold that is somewhere between light and medium, it doesn’t have as yellow of an undertone as Fluent In Diamonds. And the last shadow in this row is Oh, That’s Rich! and that is a deep chocolate matte brown.

IMG_5639

And the last row is the deeper shades, silvers, blues and black. The first shadow we have is Coal Under Pressure. This is what I would call somewhere between a medium and deep black, you can see a little bit of maybe blue when you swatch it and it has these big flecks of silver glitter. Next to that is Silver Spoon, which is deeper shimmery silver and it looks like it has some blue undertones as well. It’s unlike any other silver shadow I have. Then there’s Set The Jewel Tone, which is a shadow I’m super excited about. This is an absolutely gorgeous shimmery blue, it’s almost sapphire blue. And the last shadow in this row is the glitter, Diamond Life. This is going to be a great topper for a number of looks. It has a mix of white, blue, black and a darker silver glitter. It’s a very well thought out glitter in my opinion.

IMG_5640

I’m honestly so impressed with this palette, if these shadows are as good on the eye as they were in the swatches, then I can see this becoming one of my most used palettes.

The next thing I picked up is a KVD Vegan Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Muneca. I have a few of the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks and they’re some of my favorites. The formulas are great and they have fantastic staying power. This one in particular is a peachy/salmony pink which is a shade I really like and it’s absolutely perfect for summer.

IMG_5632

IMG_5633

The last thing I want to talk about is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Brag Mascara. I had been really wanting to try this out before committing to buy the full size or even the mini, and I was able to get one of the deluxe samples. I was initially excited to try this because I had been hearing good things and with this you do get a good size wand, but honestly, at least for me, it’s just alright. It’s not the worst mascara I’ve ever used but it’s certainly not the best. It just didn’t give me as much volume or length as I was hoping for.

IMG_5630

IMG_5631

That about wraps it up for this post, overall I’m super happy with everything and I can’t wait to use the palette and the lipstick.

Until next time, have fun shopping and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes, or liquid lipsticks :).

Sephora Birthday Gift 2020

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be talking about the 2020 Sephora birthday gift. January has been so busy for me that I totally forgot about it until I opened my Sephora app the other day and got the reminder. So there is a couple of different options with the birthday gift, for those who are Beauty Insiders you can choose from the Milk Makeup Mascara and Lip + Cheek Set, which includes the Kush Mascara, Lip + Cheek stick which is a dusty rose color that doubles as a blush and lip color and a Hydro Grip Primer packet. The Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream and Coco Cabana Cream Set and the Briogeo Mini Charcoal + Coconut Oil Shampoo and Mini Deep Conditioning Mask Set. Those who are VIB and Rouge can choose from those three along with an exclusive of a Jo Malone Mini Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne.

I chose the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream and Coco Cabana Cream Set. The Bum Bum cream is one of my favorites so this was an easy choice for me. On the top of the box it says Happy Birthday! Joyeux Anniversaire! Feliz Aniversario! Which I think is a nice little detail.

IMG_5033

IMG_5034

So I have used, and am currently using, the Bum Bum cream. It’s one of my favorite lotions and scents. This is quick absorbing and really does help to smooth the skin. It has guarana, a native Amazonian plant, cupuacu butter, acai and coconut oil.

IMG_5036

IMG_5035

The Coco Cabana cream is one that I haven’t tried but I’ve heard a ton of great things about it and now I can tell you that it smells amazing. They call it a moisture rich oil-in-water cream that instantly soothes and hydrates the skin. I did do a little test and it feels really moisturizing. It has a blend of CocoSugar which is supposed to draw moisture from the air when it’s applied, coconut oil and cupuacu butter which is helps to lock in moisture and heighten the hydration of the skin.

IMG_5037

IMG_5038

That about wraps it up for this post, overall I’m super happy with my choice of birthday gift and excited to incorporate these creams into my bodycare routine. If you guys use these creams I’d love to know which scent is your favorite.

Until next time, enjoy the Sephora birthday gifts and you can never have too many body lotions :).

Sephora Collection Frosted Kisses Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be reviewing the Sephora Collection Frosted Kisses #Lipstories set. This is a winter themed lipstick set and Sephora has a ton of individual #Lipstories lipsticks and this set in particular is six of their most popular shades wrapped in holiday packaging. The six lipsticks come in three different finishes, so there’s one cream, two metals and three mattes.

IMG_4934

IMG_4782

The first lipstick we have is 36, Ice Dancing. This is the cream and it’s a really pretty pink. It’s a deeper pink that I would say is almost a dusty rose, but for a cream lipstick it has great staying power and stands up well to eating and drinking.

IMG_4935

IMG_4936

IMG_4947

Next we have one of the mattes, 31, Sweater Weather. I really like the formulation on these mattes, they feel light on the lips and they don’t dry out my lips like some matte lipsticks can. This one in particular is berry toned and it’s like the perfect berry. It’s so pretty and adds a lot of depth to any look.

IMG_4937

IMG_4938

IMG_4948

Moving on, we have the first of the metals, 71, Campfire Cutie. This is straight up gold lipstick. When I swatched it I didn’t know what to even think because I don’t own a gold lipstick and I’ve never worn one but it’s so pretty and the metals make for great toppers.

IMG_4939

IMG_4940

IMG_4949

Next we have another matte, 23, Cabin Fever. This is a really nice red, it is a deeper red but not too deep that it starts to get berry-ish.

IMG_4941

IMG_4942

IMG_4950

The second to last lipstick we have is 69, Winter Blizzard. This is the other metal and it is so, so gorgeous. It’s a metallic white base with pink shimmer and when it hits the light it gives off this iridescent shimmer. It makes a great topper and I have it on today.

IMG_4943

IMG_4944

IMG_4951

And the last lipstick we have is 58, Snow Day. This is a really deep, rich, matte chocolate brown. I haven’t worn this one yet but I don’t have any brown lipsticks that are quite this dark so it makes a nice addition to my lipstick drawer.

IMG_4945

IMG_4946

IMG_4952

That about wraps it up for this post, if any of you guys have this set let me know which shade is your favorite and if not I’d love to know what your current favorite lipstick is.

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many lipsticks :).

Blogmas Day Ten: Sephora Play, A Year In Review

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Ten! Today I thought it would be fun to go through the Sephora Play Boxes I’ve received this year and let you guys know what I’m still loving and what I’ve repurchased. I do a monthly favorites, so I won’t be going super in depth for each box. And full disclosure, I haven’t received my December Play Box yet, but I will be doing an unboxing. That being said, let’s get into it.

The first bag I received was February.

FBSP1

This was a great first bag of the year and I genuinely like everything in this bag. The Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Maple has become one of my go to red lipsticks. I will leave a link down below to each post if you guys want more info on each of the products.

MRSP1

March brought a little bit of everything, which I always appreciate. The products that I use the most now out of this bag are the Amika Dry Shampoo, the Nars Bronzer and the Sephora Collection Mascara. I do really like that IT Cosmetics Cleanser, but I used the one I had and just haven’t repurchased yet.

APB1

With the April Box came a change in color of the bag and some great products. The Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment in Dream secured itself a place on my nightstand, I actually need to repurchase because mine is almost empty. You guys know how much I love the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream and the Make Up For Ever Primer is great.

MYSP1

The May Box reunited me with a skincare favorite, the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. Gave me a summer skincare favorite, the KORA Organics Noni Glow Face Oil and I got a backup for one of my all time favorite mascaras, Benefit BADgal BANG!

JUSP1

June was another differently colored bag and it was very skincare heavy. The Sephora Collection All Day Hydrator-Hydrate and Glow was one of my absolute favorites during the summer. The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer made itself back into the front of my primer drawer and since June you guys have seen how much I love the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla.

JLSP1

In July I added to my always growing Bite Beauty collection in my lipstick drawer with the Matte Cream Lip Crayon in Glace, when I received this I already had this exact one but it was basically empty so I was happy to see this because this is one of my favorite shades. The Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Eau So Sweet made it’s way onto my fragrance shelf, the OG Daisy is one of my all time favorite scents, but the whole Daisy collection is so nice.

AUSP1

The August Box was great, I loved the color of the bag and it was full of great products. Most of which I’m still using.

SPSP1

September was another fantastic bag. This is yet another month where I’m still using and loving everything in the bag. And it was a good mix of skincare and makeup products.

OCTSP1

In October I received a mini of one of my all time favorite, holy grail products, the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. I keep this one in my handbag makeup bag and it’s a great size to carry around. I was given another of the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer, also kept in my handbag makeup bag. And I think this is one of the first times this Sephora Play year that I’ve had genuine product disappointment. I was so excited to try the WASO: Clear Mega-Hydrating Moisturizer and I did really like the feel of it when I put it on initially but there was something in there my skin did not like and it broke me out. But one good thing about Sephora Play is along with finding things you love, you get to try new products and not like them without paying full price for them.

NVSP5

The November box was honestly amazing. I so love everything in here and the bag itself is a lovely purple. I’m wearing three of these products right now actually, the Glamglow Glamstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer, Lancôme Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Mascara and Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium perfume. It’s all so good.

That about wraps it up for this post, Sephora has sent me a ton of amazing products this year. I love how they switched up the color of the bags and I’m excited to see what’s in my December Box. If any of you guys were doing Play this year I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, Sephora Play was and is definitely worth it and I’m excited to continue next year :).

Sephora Favorites Lashstash Review

Hi everyone,

Today I have a fun post for you, it was my birthday last Friday and one of the presents I received was the Sephora Favorites Lashstash. This is a set of ten mascaras, two of which are full size. I love trying different mascaras, so this was a great gift. I really like this packaging, the box is in a sleeve that has a picture of all of the mascaras and a description of them on the back. Once you take that off you see a nice pinky purple box with what I would describe as up close images of glitter and sparkles. On the inside it says Love, Sephora #sephorafavorites and all the mascaras are lined up.

sfl1

sfl2

sfl3

sfl4

The first mascara we have is full size and it’s the Urban Decay Perversion Bigger, Blacker, Badder in Black. I haven’t tried all of them yet, but this one I have worn and I quite like it. Prior to this I hadn’t worn Urban Decay mascara, so I was excited to try it. It not only gave my lashes volume, but they looked longer and it went on really smooth. The brush is more of a big and fluffy-ish brush and when I saw it I expected there would be some clumping but there really wasn’t.

sfl5

sfl6

The second mascara we have is the Milk Makeup Kush Mascara in Boom. I am a Milk Makeup newbie, I haven’t tried any of their products. So I’m interested to try this and see what it does for my lashes, I have heard good things. And this is supposed to give you long lasting high volume.

sfl7

sfl8

Next we have the Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara in Ultra Black. As a brand, I really like Hourglass. Their Ambient Lighting Powders are incredible and their foundation sticks are really nice. So, when I saw this mascara I was excited by it. I have worn this and it gave me really nice, full lashes. One coat probably would have done it, but I never do just one coat, and I was happily surprised at not only how buildable this is, but at how light it felt after layering. And this brush is cool in the fact that the end isn’t pointed, I guess I would call it tapered, and I was able to get all of my lashes successfully.

sfl9

sfl10

sfl11

Moving on, we have the Smashbox Super Fan Fanned-Out Mascara in Black. This is the first mascara that I tried when I got this box and it definitely does what it says on the tin. My lashes were lengthened and fanned out and I really liked the look. This has a silicone brush and it’s a 360 design, so no matter how you turn it, you’re getting the mascara. I know some people don’t like the silicone brushes, but I’ve never had a problem and this one is nice, the bristles are the perfect length.

sfl12

sfl13

There are three mascaras in this box that I use regularly and love, and this is one of them. It’s the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume Mascara in Black. This mascara really does give you big volume and it has jojoba oil so it doesn’t flake or clump. The brush is curved in the middle so you get maximum coverage.

sfl14

sfl15

The next mascara that I use and love has been my go-to holy grail mascara forever and it’s Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I always get full, defined and luscious lashes and this has a permanent spot in my makeup bag.

sfl16

sfl17

Moving on, we have the second full size mascara, Lancôme Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara in 01 Excessive Black. I’ve never worn a Lancôme mascara before, but I was intrigued by this one. The brush has a pretty serious curve in it and it’s supposed to give you big lashes in one coat, so I’ll let you guys know what I think.

sfl18

sfl19

sfl20

The third mascara that I use and love is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara in Noir. You really do get major volume from this and it has a nice big brush.

sfl21

sfl22

The second to last mascara isn’t a mascara, it’s the Dior Diorshow Maximizer 3D/ Triple Volume Plumping Lash Primer. I’ve never worn a lash primer, but my mom really likes them, so I’ll give this a try and see what I think.

sfl24

sfl23

sfl25

And the last mascara we have is the Benefit BAD gal BANG! Mascara in Black. There was a lot of hype when this came out and now I fully understand why. The length and volume you get from this is insane. I was really impressed and this will for sure have a place in my makeup bag. The brush is a long, skinnier silicone brush that has a lot of flex in it, so you can get all of your lashes.

sfl26

sfl27

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have tried/use any of these regularly let me know which one and if you have this box, I’d love to know which is your favorite.

Until next time, you can never have too many mascaras and may your lashes always be full :).

Sephora Birthday Gift 2019

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be talking about the 2019 Sephora birthday gift. My birthday is on Friday and my gift was delivered yesterday, so it’s perfect timing. I’m a Sephora Beauty Insider and I’m super close to VIB status. For those who have VIB and Rouge status, you can choose from four options when it comes to your birthday month and Insiders can choose from two. The four options are a Milk Makeup Mascara and Cooling Water set, 250 bonus points, Drunk Elephant Moisturizer and Cleanser set and Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner, Setting Powder and Lipstick set. The two options are the Drunk Elephant Moisturizer and Cleanser set and the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner, Setting Powder and Lipstick set.

I chose the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner, Setting Powder and Lipstick set. I love everything Kat Von D Beauty, so it was the perfect choice. On the top of the box it says Happy Birthday! in English and Joyeux Anniversaire! in French, which I think is a nice little detail.

sb1

sb2

The only thing that I had used in this set prior to getting it is the Tattoo Liner and I love it. This one, and the one that I use, are in Trooper. This eyeliner has a really fine tip, it goes on really smooth and it’s incredibly long lasting. Once you put it on you know it’s going to be there all day.

sb6

I had heard really good things about the Lock It Setting Powder, so I was happy to see that it was included in here. I’m wearing it now and I quite like it. It’s really light, silky and my look it definitely locked it. I definitely recommend it.

sb7

sb8

And the final product that we have is the Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick trio. This is a sample of three crème lipsticks, Outlaw, Lolita and Vampira. Outlaw is a nice almost brick red, Lolita is a light brown with pink undertones and Vampira is a dark burgundy. I haven’t ever tried any of the Crème Lipsticks, so I’m excited to and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

sb9

sb3

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have tried any of the Crème lipsticks let me know, I’d love to know what your favorite shade is.

Until next time, enjoy the Sephora birthday gifts and Happy Birthday to my fellow Capricorns :).

Sephora Favorites The New Neutrals Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be going through the Sephora Favorites The New Neutrals lipstick box with you guys. This is one of the things that I got for Christmas and since then I’ve worn a few of the lipsticks and I’m loving them. So, I thought it would be fun to talk about and show you guys what you get in this box. I don’t know if you can still get this at Sephora, if I can find a link I’ll put it down below and if not I’ll put the links to the individual lipsticks.

nn1

Within this box you get five lipsticks, one of which is full size and the range of brands is quite nice.

nn2

The first one we have is the full size and it’s the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Crush. This is one that I’ve worn and I really like it. It feels light on the lips, the formulation is great, it’s really long lasting and it smells good. Color wise, it’s a peachy nude and I would definitely recommend this. It’s really pretty.

nn3

nn8

The second lipstick we have is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Crush. I wore this on New Years Eve, I mixed it with MDM Flow Retro and I really liked how it came out. This is a matte lipstick and it’s in a  pinky beige shade. This is the first time I’ve worn one of the Anastasia Beverly Hills lipsticks and I’ll definitely be buying more.

nn4

nn9

Next we have the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme. This is a plumping lip gloss that’s clear with a pinky blue shine. I haven’t worn this yet, but I’ve heard really good things, so I’m excited to try it. Plus it smells really good.

nn5

The second to last lipstick we have is the Kat Von D Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Ludwig. I’m a fan of Kat Von D Beauty, so I’m always excited to try out one of her products. This a matte lipstick, that I haven’t worn yet, but from the swatch I did I can tell it’s highly pigmented and it went on really smooth. This is a nudey brown in color and I know this comes in a bunch of other colors, so I’m sure I’ll be trying some of those as well.

nn6

nn10

And the last lipstick we have is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick in Salt Lyfe. This I have worn and I really like it, I have two other lipsticks from this collection, so I knew I would like it. These lipsticks are really pigmented and moisturizing. This one in particular is a pinky brown and has a purple undertone. It’s really nice on.

nn7

nn11

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have tried this box or any of these lipsticks, I’d love to know what your favorite is.

Until next time, do you prefer matte or glossy and you can never have too many lipsticks :).

December Favorites and 2018 Wrap Up

Hi everyone,

Today, as there’s only a couple of days left in the month, I’m going to be doing my December favorites and kind of wrapping up 2018. I have quite a few things to talk about, so let’s get into it.

Starting off with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my December Sephora Play Box. The first is the Too Faced Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Perfecting Primer- Peaches and Cream Collection. I used this on Christmas Day and I really like it. It blurs any imperfections you have and it helps to brighten your skin. I would definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a primer. And it smells like peaches and cream which is nice bonus. The Peaches and Cream collection is really great.

DSP6

My second favorite is the Trestique Lip Glaze in Paris Pink. I’ve worn this a couple times since getting it and I like it a lot. I would say it’s in between a lipstick and a lip balm. The color is really nice, it’s really long lasting and it’s very hydrating. I’m definitely going to be checking out Trestique to see their other products.

DSP2

DSP9

And my last Sephora Play favorite is the Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 02 Nothin’ But Nude. This is a really pretty nudey brown and it goes with so many different lipsticks. I like that it’s really soft on the lips and basically glides on. And it has a matte finish. It’s got everything going for it. You can get this in something like 40 shades and I have a couple sitting in my cart right now that I’ll go and purchase after this.

DSP7

DSP8

Moving on, my next favorite is Christmas and within that what I got for Christmas. Starting with my stocking, my parents are pretty good at nailing stocking stuffers. Besides some of my favorite candy, there was a bottle of  Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Spray, which is one of my favorite Bath & Body Works scents. A pack of hair ties, which is always needed, and a little loofa. There was also three mini products. I keep a little kit in my handbag that’s full of minis for all situations, so any additions to it I like. So there’s a Crest 3D White toothpaste, a Softsoap Juicy Pomegranate and Mango Infusions Moisturizing Body Wash and a Gold Bond Ultimate Skin Therapy Cream with Aloe.

CP1

Moving on to my actual presents, there were a few things I didn’t take pictures of and those were socks and some black tank tops, the basics. I did get one other clothing item and it’s a Mariners sweatshirt. I have some Mariners gear but I didn’t have any sweatshirts and I didn’t have any gear in the Sunday colors which are navy blue and gold. I wore this yesterday, it’s super comfortable and cozy and I like the way it fits.

CP10

Next I have a couple of beauty presents and each of these are going to get their own posts, so I’m not going to get too in depth about them. The first is the Sephora Collection The New Neutrals. This is a little box that has five different nude/neutral lipsticks and they’re all really pretty. I’ve worn two of them so far and I’m really happy with them. I’m excited to get into the details of this box.

The second beauty item is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette. I’ve been drooling over this palette since I opened it and honestly I still kind of am. I’ve worn three of the colors so far, not at the same time, but I’m so happy with it. It’s a gorgeous palette.

I have one music item and it’s Jeff Lynne’s ELO Wembley Or Bust concert. I bought this on iTunes and have been listening to it but I have yet to watch it and this comes with two CDs and one Blu Ray. I’m definitely excited to watch this.

My last two items are lifestyle related. The first is new headphones. Mine were just old and I had gotten a lot of use out of them. And it’s always funny to me when you get new ones to remember what they’re supposed to sound like.

CP5

The second is also getting it’s own post and it’s an Erin Condren Life Planner. The one I got is the teal and platinum, has my name on it and is the vertical layout. I’m so happy with this, I’ve already started writing in things and I can’t wait to use it throughout 2019.

That about wraps it up for this post, I want to thank each and everyone of you for reading, following, liking, commenting and everything else. It means a lot. I hope you guys had a good year and here’s to an even better 2019.

Until next time, I hope you all had a great December and I appreciate you all :).

Blogmas Day Eleven: A Year Of Sephora Play

Hi everyone,

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.

FSP1

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.

MPB1

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.

ASP1

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.

MSP1

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.

JNSP

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.

JSP1

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.

AGSP1

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.

SSP1

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.

OSP1

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.

NSP1

November was another really great box and I’m wearing this perfume today. It’s Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue, it smells so good.

DSP1

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 :).

Blogmas Day Ten: December Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Ten! Today I’m going to be talking about my December Play box from Sephora. I got this yesterday and thought that today would be a great day to go through it. The theme this month is Cheers to Beauty, which is a bunch of great products to help you celebrate this year and the years to come. The bag for this month is like the ones from the past couple of months in the fact that it’s red plastic with a snap lock. The design on the front is different, it’s like a Christmas sweater in the fact that the design is layered. The top is what looks to be a hair product and a brush, then is set of lashes and a mascara wand, the main bit in the middle is a row of Play Boxes and finally there’s two lip products and a set of lips. It’s adorable. The back is white and it red letters it says ‘Open here for warm fuzzy feels + a little something extra #SephoraPlay’ and it has a red arrow pointing at the top where you open it.

DSP1

So, the first product we have is the Verb Ghost Oil. This is a hair oil that has a Moringa Oil blend that is supposed to help your hair stay frizz free, shiny and give it heat protection. I really like hair oils, they work well in my hair, so I’m excited to try this.

DSP3

The second product we have is Lancôme Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover. This is a liquid eye makeup remover that has a gentle formula and it’s supposed to easily remove your eye makeup, including all the long lasting stuff, while refreshing your skin. I use, and love, the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover the one for Lids, Lips and Lashes. So I’m interested to see how this compares. I’ll let you guys know what I think.

DSP5

Moving on we have the Too Faced Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Perfecting Primer- Peaches and Cream Collection. This primer brightens your skin and blurs the imperfections. I love Too Faced and I really like their other primers, so I’m excited to give this one a try. And it smells like peaches and cream, which is a major plus.

DSP6

The next product we have is the Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 02 Nothin’ But Nude. I wore this yesterday and I really like it. It’s a really pretty nudey brown shade, it’s super soft on the lips, pretty much glides on and it has a matte finish. You can get this liner in something like 40 shades and I’ll definitely be checking out the others because there’s some pretty ones in there.

DSP7

DSP8

The second to last product we have is the Trestique Lip Glaze in the shade Paris Pink. This is like a mix between a lip balm and a lipstick. It’s very hydrating, long lasting and between the formulation and the color payoff, this is great product.

DSP2

DSP9

The last product we have, this month’s bonus, is a little bit different than the previous months. This month Sephora gave an extra trial size product, which I think is cool. And I got the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream. I’m intrigued by this because I’ve never used any Dr. Jart+ products but I’ve always heard great things. You use this after your serum and toner and it’s supposed to really moisturize your skin and take away any dryness you may have. Like I said, I’m intrigued and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

DSP4

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your December 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 :).
