Sephora Play Box August 2017



Sephora Play Box August 2017 – Unboxing & Review

Summer is quickly coming to a close as we enjoy what’s left of August! Speaking of which, I’ve just received my August 2017 Sephora Play Box and am catching mad feels! In case you don’t know what Sephora Play is, basically it’s a $10/mo beauty subscription box that includes five deluxe size luxury brand makeup samples, a sample fragrance and a bonus card worth 50 extra points (on your next Sephora purchase) for Beauty Insider Rewards Card holders.

The theme for the August box is “Innovative Products”. My box contains two makeup products, one beauty sponge, one skin care product and one hair care product, plus a bonus fragrance.

The Products in My August 2017 Sephora Play Box

hourglass vanish foundation stick sample

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

0.04 oz / 1.2 mL – Value: $7.00 USD
YASSS, Honey! I’ve been wanting to purchase the Hourglass Vanish Foundation Stick for along time, but since I’m a foundation junkie (and also broke), I’ve held off. I’m soooo excited to try this out, as I heard it works great for oily skin. I can tell my blending it in on the back of my hand, that the shade I received (Shell) is not the right color for my skin tone, but the formula looks and feels amazing. It blended out like a charm, doesn’t accentuate texture and doesn’t look cakey.

Beauty Blender Micro Mini Sponge

One Sponge // Value: $9.00 USD
I love Beauty Blender sponges, and actually already own the micro sponge. Although I don’t use it all the time personally, it will be very nice to have a secondary one for my freelance kit. The mini sponge works well for under eye, eye lids and concealing tiny areas. For those who are not familiar with beauty sponges, you simply wet it, remove the excess water, and apply makeup with the sponge in a dabbing (stipple) motion. Makeup usually looks much more flawless and airbrushed when applied with a sponge.

clinique him dual mascara

CLINIQUE HIM Dual-Ended High Impact Mascara & Primer Duo

Travel Size // Value: $16.00 USD
The Clinique Dual-Ended High Impact Mascara & Primer is a nifty lil guy that has a two step process. First your prime your lashes w/ the white side, which not only helps lengthen and volumize the lashes, but conditions them as well. Then the dark side is the regular mascara, of course. I believe only the travel size is sold as dual ended, and the regular sized products are sold separately, but I may be wrong.

burberry my burberry black perfume

*BONUS SCENT* Burberry My Burberry Black

1.5 ml Sample Vial // Value: n/a
Burberry perfumes are some of my favorite. I’ve already owned and wore the original My Burberry, and loved it. My Burberry Black is a bit heavier and full than the original, and includes notes of jasmine flower, peach nectar, rose and amber patchouli. If I wasn’t a broke ass biatch, I’d buy this right now – great for fall!

Sephora Play Box August 2017 Review

There is only word for my August 2017 Sephora Play Box – YASSS! I truly love each and every item and am so exited to play. A lot of these products are items I would have picked out myself, so it’s definitely a win all around! Keep up the good work, Sephora! You killin’ it, boo!

Not only was the product selection on point, but I can’t believe the overall worth of this box, $60.00 FREAKIN DOLLARS (USD)! You know a subscription box is worth it when even ONE item is worth more than what you paid for the entire box, let alone multiple items. Both the Caviar Hair Mist and the Clinique Mascara we’re full-blown travel size products. Like, damn Sephora. You get me.

IF you’re not a Play Subscriber, I HIGHLY recommend it. You really can’t beat it, for $10/mo. If you are already a Play subscriber, let me know what you received in your August box! How do you like your products?

Stay Beautiful, Inside & Out!
