Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I did! But...they're sending me the dry/normal box.....when I KNOW it says on my profile that I have oily/combination skin :l

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Only a few more days left until the boxes ship! 

 

 

@beauty2sample Do your predictions still stand? I was watching the video trying to figure out what it would be.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I'm excited for the backlight primer! So far I'm loving the Play boxes and promo codes Smiley Happy I think this is making Sephora kind of fun again

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I just got my PLAY! box in the mail this morning before jetting off to class, but I did get to take a peek to see my little stash of goodies Smiley Happy I agree with everyone who's made comments about the packaging. It's quite a sizeable box, bigger than Birchbox, which got me excited for possible repurposing, and I liked how nothing really felt like it was schlepped together. Everything was in place due to the little confetti paper pieces that held everything in place.

 

A HUGE bonus point came in the form of that little foam sheet that covered the top of the box and fell between our PLAY! box and the cardboard mailer. Whenever I try to get my Birchboxes out with scissors I always end up creating this unattractive slice through the box, and I was delighted to see that they put a barrier between the box and the mailer. Not sure if this was why they had the sheet in the first place, but that detail was spot-on for me.

 

Also a little bummed about the repetition in samples, as well as the fact that Sheer Transformation is the only face product that has ever made me break out. But I feel that the assortment is very reflective of "the essentials:" they're a collection of solid, go-to products for every-day. I am a fan of the MJ highliner (probably my HG), love the Bumble & Bumble UV/Oil line, I own EJ White Peony, and I was impressed by the size of the Glam Glow sample.On top of that, the pamphlet is really cute, love the hacks suggestions and little facts about the products, I didn't know a lot of them.

 

 

Now that I have two samples of the Sephora rouge infusion, I was inspired to break into the one I got from a VIB promo, and am wearing it as we speak Smiley Happy I like the scent to the formula, it kind of reminds me of candy with a hint of vanilla. However, it does linger, and that should be noted for those who have sensitive noses/aren't a fan of the scent. It's a nice shade that comes off much darker than the color swatch on the top of the tube, more like a dusty rose mixed with a raspberry. I think it's a nice every day shade, and definitely for fall. 

 

Overall I really can't complain about this box, and I'm reallly excited to see what happens next month. Hopefully we get to try new samples that haven't already been offered on the website. I can't wait to play with these products more after my final next week <3

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I know exactly what you mean about slicing the BB boxes - lol!

 

I kind of hoped that the box would be the same size as my BB boxes so it could stack neatly.  I wonder if they'll have different patterns each month?

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Yes!  I have the same issue with scissors & Birchboxes.  It makes me feel like a perfectionist but I am SO bummed whenever I end up with the slice mark on the top. :-(  

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

image.jpgIs this normal? It's only a perfume sample so I'm not that worried if it's no good but I'd rather not be spraying anything contaminated on my neck. TIA!

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

It probably just leaked a bit during shipping. If you're grossed out, just spray some rubbing alcohol on it and clean it with a q-tip. I'm sure it's fine. 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

No, it doesn't look normal. It looks like the perfume leaked. I would contact Sephora about it before using. Smiley Happy

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Has Box #64 been posted?  I honestly am having a hard time following the posts linear method 0.JPG

Also, from MSA:

KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovesick

Verb Sea Spray

Klorane Dry Shampoo

Coola Makeup Setting Spray

Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional

Versace Bright Crystal

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Yay I have this box and I'm happy with it. Not psyched about the porefessional + Coola (can't use the coola, have DS porefessional already) but I like the other items.

 

I was hoping for the Lovesick shade and I heard the Klorane is a good dry shampoo so I had been wanting to try both Smiley Happy 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Did we post box #042 yet?

 

im pretty happy with it. I reluctantly looked because I always like to be surprised lol. The only kings im disappoints about is porefessional and the fragrance.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I'm getting 42.. and have mixed emotions.

 

I strongly dislike IGK products.  They are overpriced, and don't work.  The last time I was at the beauty supply the girl was saying how they can't clear it from their shelves, even on clearance.  Even at 75% off retail price, pros aren't buying it.  

 

Perfume is a bust.  But scents are personal preference.  I wish there was an option in the quiz to state what type of fragrances each person prefer.  But I also have my own conspiracy theories about Big Perfume.

 

I absolutely detest FAB products, and this is not a product for acne sufferers.  Coconut causes breakouts.  'Nuff said.  

 

I'm not going to address Porefessional other than it's a lazy addition to the box.

 

The hair oil will be interesting.  I love the smell of roses but rose breaks me out.  I'll have to be careful how I apply it, but I'd like to make it work.  Maybe leg oil?  But with summer coming up and bees outside, I don't want to be swarmed by bees.

 

I'm happy for the KVD.  Bright colors are happily accepted, I think it'll pair nicely with the UD lipstick from a recent box.

 

I'll keep Play! through August, at least, because summer products are my fave, but I don't know how much longer I'm keeping it.  Boxes are way to disappointing to spend $10 (+tax) on deluxe samples I just give away unopened.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I'm getting box #042. I actually would really prefer to get KDUB. It's so much more fun and exciting than Lovesick. I'll still wear lovesick, but I have 4098 other colors just like it.  If I could have my choice of items I'd go with:

 

Kat Von D KDUB

DDG Alpha Beta Glow Face Pad (b/c I already like it)

BB Don't Blow it (b/c I already like it)

Alien (b/c I like it, or Derek Lam to try it)

 

Toss up between maybe Ouai & Fab or possibly Briogeo.

 

The main problem is that I'm not really trying new things. A lot of the items have been easily or recently attainable promos/samples/whatevers.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

@KMart919  If I get KDUB, I will gladly swap with you. Smiley Happy  I hope you get what you're wanting though.  Not to be nosy but is your username because you worked / work at K-Mart?  That was my very first job I ever had lol so I was just curious.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

a few months ago, I signed up for birchbox, sephora okay, and ipsy. I wanted to see for myself which was better, and I figured I cut one or two of them. it was clear the entire time that I was going to cut birchbox....3 months and I didn't like one thing....and they don't even give cute bags! sephora play hung in there for a little, since i liked their drawstring bags and their play pass, but this month just made it clear that sephora play is not very good. it's a bad sign when I'm using less than $10 of a subscription box. sephora has so many good brands and products at their disposal...but they can't even curate a good box. plus I expected there to be more makeup? sephora gets cut. but I'm gonna miss my play pass.

 

it's funny...i read so many bad reviews on ipsy....but they're the best $10 subscription box. plus, they're the only ones that actually listen to you and your survey. (did sephora play even have a survey?)

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

@xxsour there is a "play profile" you can fill out by going to my account. It for sure effects what you get since people with similar profiles get the same boxes but that clearly does not mean the boxes make any sense for your actual profile haha. 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I know I posted my disappointment in my PLAY box this month along with the broken @Trestique stick.

 

 

I have been wanting this MAC (true) green eyeliner for-ever in Landscape Green!!!! 

Showed up at Saks for $10 on Sale.  They had some pretty good GWPs picks.

 

Look what arrived as my 5 free samples!  LM shadow stick in Moonlight.  Gorgeous!  Plus, some other things I wanted to sample.  (mainly the fragrances since I love rose/lavender scents).

 

(point of story)  Got a shadow stick after all! ;')

the universe is.....grrrrrreat!saks1.jpg
