This is going to be a fairly short review/unboxing post because I’ve actually already gotten my September box and am ready to write that review up, but then I realized that I forgot to write up my thoughts on August. (I blame “back to school.”) Continue reading “Sephora Play! August 2017 Unboxing”
August has been a really good month for my makeup and skincare addiction. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but in any case, I’ve spent some money this month, and I’ve gotten some pretty good stuff. I had a spectacular e.l.f. haul, which added to some brand new essences and first cleansers, which I can’t wait to test out. I got the Naked Heat palette and discovered my love for red and orange eyeshadows. My Sephora Play box for August (which will be reviewed shortly) had some fabulous items that I loved and had a retail value of over $50.
And then there was this. This is only the second time I’ve seen Sephora offer a super special Play box (no subscription required), and the last one was only available to Rouge members. This one is now available to anyone who wants to buy it. I didn’t get the last one because I wasn’t too excited about the products they mentioned. (Tom Ford’s Black Orchid is okay, but it smells weird on me after a while. Plus, it included a second perfume sample.)
This time, I saw mention of a Tom Ford makeup product, which is a WHOLE other situation, in addition to skincare products from two brands I adore AND a bonus Victor & Rolf fragrance (and I knew what it had to be), and snatched one up on Tuesday. It was on my porch the next day– not my typical Flash shipping experience lately, and I’m definitely not complaining. Continue reading “Unboxing: PLAY! BY SEPHORA The All-Star Edition”
You know, I’ve never really given much thought to Beauteque’s themes, and it’s not like I care one way or another, but they do seem to be keeping to them lately, and I really like this one. July’s theme was “Summer Sweets” and (with a couple of exceptions) features a fruit and honey vibe. Considering how much I love all things bee, this is a theme I can get behind. Oh, and I like fruit masks, too. Continue reading “Beauteque Mask Maven July 2017 Review”
Yay! Another Sephora Play box is here!
For anyone who might be wondering what this is, it’s one of the many beauty box subscriptions out there, this one being from Sephora. So as you’d expect, it features deluxe samples of products sold by Sephora. It’s nice in particular if you’re like me and have been around the block a bit with other subscriptions, and you want to see familiar premium brands. Honestly, I like discovering new products, but after a while I did start to yearn for something I was more likely to actually buy, and since I’m a frequent Sephora shopper (a little more than I’d like to admit), this is perfect for me. If you think it might be for you, I’ll provide some info on how to subscribe below. Continue reading “Sephora Play! July 2017 Unboxing”
I feel like I’m finally getting caught up a bit. My June Sephora Play box is the last subscription that I’ve received and fully tried out but hadn’t posted a review for. I’ve been doing a pretty good job of getting through the products included, too, so I’ve even been able to make some progress regarding my stockpile. When you get more than one of these sample boxes every month, it piles up quick!
Sephora Play is a monthly subscription that sends deluxe beauty samples and a bonus perfume sample to your door every month for $10 plus sales tax. Shipping is free. The items included can all be found at your local Sephora store and/or online, and the box includes a Play Pass that can be redeemed in stores with any purchase for an additional 50 points toward your Beauty Insider account. As you’d expect, Sephora encourages Play members to visit stores and receive help with any items included in their boxes. There’s even a monthly meetup at select stores. That drive isn’t going to happen anytime soon.

Yes, I know it’s July. Shut up.
Worth noting, Beauteque had some changes to their shipping starting in in April, but they did at least notify their customers via email and gave us a 15% discount on the next billing to make up for it. I got my April bag in May and bumped up my masking routine a bit to every other day once I got my masks so that I could use them all up before my May bag came in, only to find out that this was the new norm. Beauteque now ships out on the last day of the month, so you’ll get that month’s bag in the following month. Stupid, I know, but at least they’re still fairly reliable when it comes to getting masks to my mailbox. Continue reading “Beauteque Mask Maven April 2017 Review”
