Play! by Sephora October 2016 is a bit of a let down for me in the fact that they are now doing variations on the boxes and not the same box for everyone. I had major box envy as other people got great skincare stuff where I got things I already flipping had. I also got a lip product in a color I’m not sure about in a matte formula and more mascara. At this rate, I’ll never be buying mascara again as I have multiple tubes of minis, like at least 6 to 8 between Play! and point samples. Maybe Sephora is trying to tell me something!
Play! by Sephora October 2016
Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb deluxe mini
YSL Mon Paris sample
The big draw to this month’s box is the Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask. It’s praised by celebs and their hairdressers. It’s also ludicrously expensive and doesn’t contain a ton of filler ingredients. It’s silicone free, so I’m looking forward to it. I was expecting it to smell fruity, but it’s very Chanel-like. Skin Inc Pure Revival Peel has a devoted fan base, but I’m not sure it’s going to do much for me as it’s a very lightweight peel. I have Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb, and it’s counterpart for drier skin in mini already. They are fine for summer but not really enough for any time of the year. It’s chock full of silicone and the only time I use it is right before makeup application when it’s sticky out. Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick is a slightly deepened nude rose pink shade. I’m sure it’s close to universal regarding shade, but it’s not something I’d choose for myself. Blinc Mascara Amplified is a full-size product I think! I’m not a huge fan of Blinc, but I haven’t tried this one. It’s probably more of a daytime mascara, but that’s fine with me. YSL Mon Paris is not my type of fragrance; I was warned that it’s sweet so I’m reserving it for a cold day so it will show it’s best.
If Sephora is going to offer multiple boxes, I need to be able to choose which ones I get. Obviously, I would have picked the most natural box with all the skincare. Definitely had some envy! The only real exciting product is the Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask, but that alone is worth the price of the box.
