Play! by Sephora April 2016 came earlier last week but I didn’t get a chance to really “play” with it until the weekend. This box has two old favorites and some really “hyped” new products I’m looking forward to. If you are interested in getting Play! The test markets are opening up now and I believe they are serving all of the USA. I don’t have any info on when they will be in other markets. You can find out more about Play! by clicking here.
Play! by Sephora April 2016
The Play! by Sephora April 2016 box is worth the $10 and then some. First off, there are two blog favorites in the box with Sunday Riley Good Genes and NARS Rikugien. Both products have full reviews here and here. At first, I was disappointed to have less to review but I love both of these products so much getting more of them is quite satisfying. Since both of those are quite large, they make this box an excellent value. The Mini Clinique Pep Start Eye Cream is a super hype product I wanted to try. I’ve used it three times so far. I’ll do a full review whenI’m close to finishing the sample. Another totally hyped product is the Deluxe mini Milk Sunshine Oil, which I have yet to try. I don’t anticipate loving it or disliking it. Its ingredients are solid but nothing new or special. I think the hype comes in its full sized packing which is a portable pen style applicator. The Ultra deluxe mini Sephora Collection Colorful Cheek Ink Blush Gel in Peony is pretty huge, as it’s half the size of a normal one. I hope I end up liking it because there is a ton of product. I need to test a few other color products out so I’ll probably end up testing them all at once this week in one epic FOTD type situation. I’m really looking forward to Derek Lam 10 Crosby 2AM Kiss Sample because I love warm gourmand scents and this has notes of caramel and amber. Even if it is too sweet to wear by itself, I have a few more masculine scents that could some feminizing.
This month’s box is a real value for $10! It’s got HUGE samples in it and some of those are quite spendy for the full size. The subscription still doesn’t allow for personalization but so far all the color products have been universal. I would say that it’s also capitalizing on a mix of standards or cult favorites and newer products that have the buzz factor to make people take notice or talk more about the subscription. All in all, another successful month.
