August 2016 Play! By Sephora Review

       

We all know that the amount of beauty products in my house is at this point, pretty ridiculous. If 12 year old me possessed this much makeup, I would have been astounded. Honestly, up until about 6 years ago, you could fit all my makeup in the same 3 tier Caboodle case I've had since Jr. High. It wasn't until I started Cosmetology school that my obsession began. These days, I collect all of these magnificent products from equally magnificent subscriptions like Play! By Sephora.



So if you aren't familiar with this box, you should be... Like, now. Play by Sephora is a monthly beauty subscription service curated by Sephoras beauty experts. The box features a wide variety of brands but most are the middle to high end brands that I love the most. And the most awesome thing? It's only $10 per month. Yup... It's fantastic!


This month's bag is just as cute as always! So fitting for this month's The Eye Openers theme.


Once again, I love the way Sephora puts Their information sheet together. It's not only pretty, it breaks each item down with loads of details about them.


LancĂ´me Energie De Vie --- This is a concentrated energizing liquid lotion that helps to visibly relieve dullness, diminish signs of fatigue and promote a healthy glow. I love the feel of it (not to thick and not to thin) on application. It's also infused with Goji berry which protects against free radicals and lemon balm that soothes and refreshes skin.


Clean Reserve Blonde Rose --- now this is one of those rare perfumes I actually love! Crafted with gentle, cruelty-free ingredients it's a fantastic blend of rose, jasmine, and peony over a sandalwood base.


Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil in 'Flirting Game' --- Oh this is so creamy and fabulous! It's a 12 hour long wear liner that is also waterproof. I like that it has a bit of shimmer to it and it smudges out really nicely.


Caudalie Resveratrol Eye Lifting Balm --- I love this brand. This is an innovative eye cream that visibly lifts and smooths the eye area. It also tackles my biggest eye issue and reduces the look of dark circles and puffiness.


Urban Decay Perversion Mascara --- Give me anything from Urban Decay and I will love you forever. I've used this mascara many times before and it stays in my makeup routine pretty consistently. It lengthens and volumizes eyelashes, coating them with triple black pigment that is really buildable if you like a little extra drama to your eye look. 


Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow in 'I-544' --- This is such a nice, pretty dusky pink granite color! It's nicely pigmented and has a gorgeous iridescent  finish. It's a unique gel-powder formula that applies smoothly. No patchy, uneven application here!


Another brilliant box from Sephora! Do you really expect anything else? They have done such a fabulous job of curating the Play box and I just am so happy I'm not on the waitlist anymore!
