Play! by Sephora is a monthly subscription box program. Each month subscribers will receive a box of deluxe samples, along with an exclusive PLAY! BOOK — packed with helpful advice — and a PLAY! PASS to redeem in store for a free one-on-one learning session with a beauty expert. The six product samples in your PLAY! by SEPHORA box are from the same prestige brands Sephora carries in store and online, and they are sized to use multiple times.
Play! by Sephora has switched to recycled bags (they previous sent cloth bags) and I love them. I usually ended up tossing the drawstring cloth ones, but I will save these resealable ones.
The December 2018 Play! by Sephora theme is “Cheers to Beauty” and included the following items:
~Too Faced Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Perfecting Primer (5mL) ($4): Primed & Peachy is a cooling, mattifying primer that blurs, smooths, and brightens the complexion. The idea is to wear it under makeup for a smoother look, but I like it alone just as much!
~Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara in Black (3mL) ($7.20): I have lash extensions, but I passed this to someone else to enjoy. I have used it in the past though and it is a great mascara – no clumping and gives great volume.
~Mooccanoil Moroccainoil Treatment (10mL) ($6): Moroccainoil was sent in the first ever FabFitFun box (so many years ago)! That is the first time I was introduced to it and I have loved it since. It is great for smoothing flyaways and even better for adding shine.
~Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in Nothin But Nude (0.25g) ($6): Love the color, but I don’t use a ton of lip liner. I may have to start mixing things up with this though.
~Fresh Sugar Lip Caramel Hydrating Balm (2g) ($6): This is both hydrating and delicious smelling. It is not something I would purchase on my own (the full size is $18), but I was thrilled to get it in my Play! box and will happily use it up.
~Bonus Item (Mystery): Stellar Cosmic Face Powder (Haze) (1.7g) ($6.38): Meh. This was my “mystery item” and I am not overly excited by it. I have been getting a lot of similar products lately and it’s just not something I use.
The December 2018 Play! by Sephora had a value of about $36. All in all, this month was a win. It had some hits and some misses, but overall I am happy and think it was worth the $10 price tag.
What did you think of the December 2018 Play! by Sephora? One thing to keep in mind is that Play! sends out a variety of boxes each month, so you may end up receiving a different box than your best friend who is also a subscriber. If you are interested in subscribing (and you probably should be because their boxes are great), you can check them out here.
