PLAY! by Sephora Review – June 2016

Hello everyone!

My second PLAY! by Sephora box has arrived, and I can’t wait to share it with you!

The theme for the month of June is “The Minimalists.”

Sephora is going for a “less is more” look this month.

I like the minimalist look myself.  I wear makeup everyday and have no problems with it, but I feel like some people completely over do it in their everyday lives!

I can’t get over how cute and informative their PLAY! BOOK is.

The drawings are adorable and they give you some really useful tips!

Bumble and bumble – Don’t Blow It

The idea of this product is that it gives your hair the look of a blow dry without actually having to blow dry it!  That sounds fantastic!  All you have to do is apply it to towel dried hair and then let air dry!  Sounds super easy to me!

I wash my hair at night and sleep with it wet.  Because of that, I haven’t had a chance to give this a try yet!  You could argue that I could sleep with this product in my hair, but I don’t think it’ll look blow dried in the morning after being mashed into my pillow all night!

As soon as I get a chance, I will be giving this a try! I can’t wait to see the results!

bareMinerals – bareSkin Bronzer

I have very fair skin, so I’ve never really used any bronzing products.  I’m quite comfortable with my fairness, and most bronzers are too dark for me anyway.

I won’t be getting any use out of this product, but I’m sure one of my friends will!

Benefit Cosmetics – They’re Real! Mascara

I love Benefit products!  I use quite a few in my everyday routine!

I’ve used the They’re Real! Mascara in the past and it’s nice.  However, I prefer Benefit’s Roller Lash mascara.

The brush on They’re Real! is a huge selling point for many women, but I don’t actually like it.  I’m afraid I’ll poke myself in the eye with it!

Even though I prefer the Roller Lash, I will still keep this mascara in my rotation!  When I use up my current tube of Roller Lash, I’ll most likely start using They’re Real! again!

BECCA – Backlight Priming Filter

I’ve never used any BECCA products before, so I was so excited to see this primer in my box!

I’ve been using it for several days now, and I like it!  It gives my skin a dewy look, which is different, but not bad!

I don’t think I’ll be making this my everyday primer, but I will definitely continue using it!

TARTE – Tarteguard 30 Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30

As I mentioned earlier, I’m very fair, so sunscreen is one of my best friends!

I went on vacation in May (and got quite a burn), so I wish this product had been in the May box instead of the June!  I’ll be going on vacation again in August and will definitely use it then!

The sunscreen is very light and smells great!  It’ll be perfect for layering under makeup or by itself!

TOCCA Beauty – Florence

I love the packaging of this sample!  The little birdies are too cute!

IMG_0984

I’m very sensitive to perfume smells, so I’m always worried about whether or not I’ll like the samples I receive!  Luckily, I love this one!

Florence is light and fresh!  I’ve worn it twice this week, and it’s been great! I think I’ll wear it again tomorrow!

Once again, Sephora packed all of their fantastic samples in a fabric, drawstring bag!

I love these bags!  The quality is fantastic, and I think it adds quite a bit to the box!

Aside from the bronzer, I will use/have used all of these products!  I’d say June was a success!!
