I was relatively impressed with this month’s Sephora Play box. There were three makeup items and two skincare, plus the usual fragrance sample.
I know I love the Cover Fx Illuminating Primer. I have used a deluxe sample in the past, and it works great despite my skin type being on the oilier side. I have used the Glam Glow Thirsty Mud Mask once, and it was nice. I did have a minor breakout near my lip, but I don’t think it was because of the product…junk food is a real problem the week of Thanksgiving…The box also included Caudalie Vinosource moisturizing sorbet, which is supposed to be a gel cream that calms redness and congestion. I have not used this, and will probably pass it on to a sister as I have so many moisturizer samples to use.
Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gel in Pin Up Pink was included as a deluxe size. The color is very bright pink, and it’s not really my style, so I won’t be opening it and passing it along. The fragrance included is from the brand Maison Margiela “Replica” in Lipstick On. It is described as powdery and floral with bergamot and neroli. I will give it a try as I am really into laying my perfumes lately and have been using a lot of my samples to do this.
My most favorite thing is a deluxe sample of Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick in Rose Gold. I love this formula as Amethyst is my favorite cream eyeshadow. The color is a creamy beige, not really rose gold, but it’s a nice wash of color on the lid or in the inner corner.
