PLAY! by Sephora Review: February 2017

Hello there!

My PLAY! by Sephora box has arrived!  It’s always an exciting day when this box lands on my doorstep!


“The Soft Side” is the theme for February.

This box definitely evokes soft + girly feelings.


Box Contents:

  • Clinique – Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer
  • NARS – Velvet Lip Glide in Bound
  • Marc Jacobs – Divine Decadence
  • Sephora Collection – Lashcraft Length & Volume Mascara
  • Too Faced – Lip Injection Glossy in Milkshake
  • Origins – GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream
  • Drawstring Bag


Clinique – Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer

I’ve been interested in trying out several items from Clinique’s Pep Start line.  I’ve tried the eye cream from this line before and like it quite a bit, so I was very pleased to see this moisturizer in my box this month.

The Hydroblur Moisturizer also doubles as a makeup primer.  I love a product that does double duty!

I use a lot of Clinique skincare products, so although I’ve only used this cream a few times, I’m not worried about skin irritation after prolonged use.


NARS – Velvet Lip Glide in Bound

I love NARS products, so I let out a little squeel when I pulled this out of my bag.

I own several NARS lipsticks but have never tried their liquid lipstick before.  After several uses, I know I’ll be using this lipstick in its entirety.  I’m also very likely to purchase the full size version in the future!

The formula is creamy and the color is perfect for me!  I love it!


Marc Jacobs – Divine Decadence

As usual, I’m not a fan of the fragrance sample.

I don’t buy this box for the fragrances though, so that’s okay!


Sephora Collection – Lashcraft Length & Volume Mascara

I don’t typically buy store brand beauty products.  However, I’ve been very pleased with every Sephora Collection item I’ve received through my PLAY! box.

After using this mascara, my lashes look great!  They’re quite long and rather dark!  That’s a win win for me!


Too Faced – Lip Injection Glossy in Milkshake

I love lip products, so I was rather excited when I saw two of them in my box this month!

I’ve tried several lip plumping glosses in the past, and I was not a fan.  Unfortunately, this gloss falls into the same category.  I don’t like the intense tingles that these glosses generate.  It burns a little, and I don’t ever see the results that the tingles are supposed to bring.

Another negative for this gloss is that the color is just not flattering on me.  Yikes!

I’m going to see if any of my friends want to plump their pouts!  If so, I’ll be gifting them this gloss! 🙂


Origins – GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream

I LOVE receiving eye creams in my subscription boxes.  Eye cream is a product that I love to use but hate to buy! Receiving it in a box is the ideal solution to that problem!

I don’t think I’ve ever tried an eye cream from Origins before, so I’m excited for this product.  I used it last night and so far, so good!


I LOVE this month’s bag!  It goes perfectly with the soft + girly box theme! The dark blush and silky material is so fancy!

This bag is a huge improvement from last month’s!


All in all, I’d say I’m very pleased with this month’s box! I’m going to be taking the NARS liquid lipstick with me everywhere for the foreseeable future!
