Sephora Play Box May 2017 | Unboxing & Review
April Showers Bring May Flowers
I’m a little bit late in sharing my Sephora Play box haul with you this month, for that I apologize. Since starting YouTube, on top of normal adulting duties, my life has been a little insane. May also happens to be my birthday month, so a lot was going on in that regard as well. Craziness aside, let’s dive in to this month’s amazing box!
This month’s box included one skin care product, one hair product, two lip products, one highlighting product and, as always, a sample perfume. It was a nice change from last month’s box, which inlcuded almost entirely skin care. Not that I’m complaining about what I received by any means, I’m just personally more in to the makeup.
Products I Received in My Box
Sunday Riley – Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser
This cleanser is jam packed with French & Morrocan clays, and is meant to purify, deep clean and minimize the appearance of pores. It also contains Vitamin C and Neroli oil (essential oil) and is useable for every skin type. The cleanser is free of Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates and is also cruelty free. It retails for $45 USD at Sephora. >> View on Sephora
Nudestix – Magnetic Matte Lip Stick in Greystone
A generous sized matte lip pencil that claims to be a 3-in-1 product – liner, lip stain and lipstick. The intended purpose is to provide bold, waterproof, long-lasting matte lips. The color I received, GreyStone, is a very brownish mauve(swatched below). The lip pencils are available in 7 different shades, each $24 USD, at Sephora. >> View on Sephora

I’m over the moon with the products I received this month. It’s finally a bag where I have a use for all of the products, maybe except the lip plumper, since I was blessed in that department. The perk of being a makeup artist is that anything I receive that I won’t personally use, I can toss right in to my freelance bag. Can’t lose!
If you’re not already a subscriber to Sephora Play, I highly recommend it. It’s only $10/month and all of the products they send are high end products, so you really do get a lot of value. It’s a nice way to test high end products and see how you like them first before shelling out the money.
For those who are already subscribers, I’m curious to know what you received in your box! Please do share! Comment down below and let me know! 😉
