PLAY! by Sephora review April, 2017

Play! By Sephora is a subscription box that delivers a box of 5 deluxe samples, a fragrance sample and a collectible bag to your door every month.


This review is for the April Play! By Sephora box.


The Goods

  1. Full Dry Volume Blast – Living Proof. Regular price: $15.00


Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast is a spray that creates volume and texture that’s almost as light as air and gives big, lasting results on dry hair. It’s powered by Living Proof’s Volumizing and Texturizing Molecule which is lighter and bigger than industry standard ingredients, so it delivers big volume and texture on your hair without weighing it down. I straighten my hair so it’s smooth but hate that it makes my hair lay so flat. After using this spray it single handedly made my hair look thicker and have more texture, I’m impressed! A little too expensive for me so I’m glad to get it in the box and get to use this until it’s gone.

  1. REVEAL Concentrated Luminizing Drops in Pearl – Algenist. Regular price: $12.00


A multi-use featherweight drop formula which can be used alone for an enhanced highlighting effect or added to your favorite beauty products to impart a radiant glow. I love products that are luminizing and give my skin a dewey glow, and these drops do just that. When I mix a few with my coverup, it gives my skin a natural looking, beautiful glow. I love this!


  1. Watt’s Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter – Benefit Cosmetics. Regular price: $7.30


Benefit Cosmetics soft focus highlighter turns on “watt” ya got with a delicate champagne glow that’s gorgeous. With a cream-to-powder finish…it’s a switch on “wow” for all complexions. You’ll adore the smooth applicator & luminous sheen. This is so perfect for highlighting when I do my makeup using contour, because I can precisely highlight the bridge of my nose, across the top of my cheekbones, and so on. I normally need to use all different size brushes to highlight the different areas, but with this I can easily make the highlight as thin or wide as I need.


  1. Artist Shadow in I-544 – Make Up For Ever. Regular price: $6.00


Artist Shadow’s innovative “gel-powder” smooth formula boasts intense color pay-off and high blendability. This color is a pink granite and does blend effortlessly. It’s a perfect color for above the crease of my eyelid, just under the highlighted brow bone.

  1. GLOWSTARTER Mega Illuminating Moisturizer – GLAMGLOW. Regular price: $6.90


A hydrating, super-charged cream with iridescent illuminating pearl particles to blur, reflect, and enhance your complexion for an instant luminous finish. This moisturizer is formulated with vitamins, botanicals, hyaluronic acid, and TEAOXI golden root technology that instantly floods skin with hydration for healthy-looking radiance. I absolutely LOVE this moisturizer, it’s so perfect for summer when I’m going to be swimming or at the beach and not wearing makeup, it still gives my skin a radiant glow that looks beautiful.


  1. FREE scent Clementine California – Atelier Cologne.


This scent has a little too much juniper for my taste, it reminds me of Christmas, lol. I can’t wear perfume anyways because it gives me headaches so I’ll probably give this to my sister.



The value of the products in this month’s box is around $47.20! I even used the prices for the samples I received, not the full sized products, so this is the true value and I’d say it’s a steal! The box is only $10.00/month, so almost 5x the value is great. The only product I really won’t use is the fragrance, and it’s a bummer for me that every box comes with a fragrance considering I don’t wear perfume lol. But I did love the other samples! I’m obsessed with having glowing skin and using highlighter for contour makeup and this box literally has everything I could possibly want for my favorite look. Even the hair spray makes a huge difference in my hair, this one box basically has all I need to get ready, woohoo!

Play! by Sephora is $10.00 per month with free shipping and handling, $10.70 with tax.

There is usually a waiting list for this box, so you can sign up for the waiting list here. I was on it for two weeks before I got my email, which was not long to wait at all.
