PLAY! by Sephora Review: August 2016

Hi everyone!

As some of you may know, I was on vacation all last week, so I’m a teensy bit late with my PLAY! review this month!  Only by one day though!  That’s not too bad! 🙂


“The Eye Openers” is the theme for the August box!

Most of this month’s products revolve around the eyes! What a fun theme!  I hope they do a lip theme soon! 🙂


Along with reading my PLAY!BOOK each month, I also watch Sephora’s unboxing video to learn even more about the featured products!

  • Clean – Reserve Blonde Rose
  • Caudalie – Resveratrol Eye Lifting Balm

Make Up For Ever – Artist Shadow in I-544

I use Make Up For Ever  foundation every single day, but I haven’t tried any of their eye shadows until now!


Every box came with this pink granite shadow sample! So pretty!

This shadow is a little too dark to wear all over my lids, but I really like it as an eyeliner!  I don’t wear eyeliner often, but when I do, I typically use darker eye shadows and apply them with an angled brush.


Clean – Reserve Blonde Rose

I have yet to make a final decision on whether or not I like this fragrance!  I think I like it from afar but not when it’s too close.  Does that make sense?!  Maybe not!  One spray isn’t bad, but I think it could quickly become overwhelming!

If I can remember, I’m going to try to wear it tomorrow and see how it goes!


Caudalie – Resveratrol Eye Lifting Balm

I’ve been needing to buy eye cream for a long time now, so I was very pleased when I saw this in my box!  Now I can put off buying eye cream for even longer!

I’ve heard great things about Caudalie products, and so far, I’m a fan!  Who knows?! When I finally get around to buying eye cream, I may just purchase this one!


Urban Decay – Perversion Mascara

I love Urban Decay and use many of their products.  Perversion mascara isn’t one of my favorites though.

I’ve received samples in other subscription boxes and have even bought the full size before.  After buying the full size, I realized that this mascara isn’t for me!  I think it’s a little too wet, and I always end up with it all around my eyes! 🙁

I gave it to my sister-in-law for her to try!  Hopefully, she’ll like it more than I did!


Lancôme – Énergie De Vie – Smoothing & Glowing Liquid Care Moisturizer

I didn’t realize how liquidy this moisturizer was until I spilled a good portion of it on the floor when I went to use it for the first time!  I know, I’m a dork! Oh well!

Once I cleaned up the floor, I applied the moisturizer, and I like it!  Its liquid formula is quite a bit different than the moisturizers I’m used to!  I probably won’t end up purchasing this item, but I will definitely finish off the sample!  That won’t be too difficult for me, since I spilled a lot of it! 🙂


Sephora Collection – Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof – Flirting Game

As I mentioned above, I don’t wear eyeliner that often.  However, I can see myself using this taupe color more often than I would any of the black liners I own.  The taupe is subtle and will go very well with my blue eyes!

If I wasn’t so shaky and could see better, I would wear eyeliner more often.  Maybe one day soon I will master the art of applying it!  Maybe! Probably not though! 🙂


The drawstring bags just keep getting cuter and cuter!


All in all, the August, PLAY! by Sephora box was pretty great for me!  I will use the majority of these products!
