GLAMGLOWSUPERMUD® Clearing Treatment ($ 17.25 Value)

This is one magical mask that clears all that gunk out of your pores. I have to warn you all though… this clay mask will crack like dried mud and shamelessly reveal every single pore on your face as it dries up but I’m not complaining. This mask is a god sent! 😀

 

COVER FXIlluminating Primer ($ 6.08 Value)

This primer reminds me of the Becca Illuminating face primer from one of the earlier sephora playboxes. It leaves behind a very beautiful dewy glow to your skin.

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour ($ 17.4 Value)

This Laura Mercier Caviar stick is super creamy. The packaging and the texture of the product allows for a smooth crease free application on the eyelid directly from the stick. The rose gold shade tends to looks a lot closer to a champagne shade for olive skinned complexion – the perfect eye shadow shade for a glowy finish.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($ 10.90 Value)

The Estée Edit Dissolve the Drama 2-in-1 Makeup Remover + Cleanser ($ 2.39 Value)

Unlike most makeup remover oils, this one is not at all greasy yet it manages to dissolve and remove all traces of foundation. It’s non greasy finish leaves it ideal for oily and combination skin.

Play! By Sephora July 2016 Subscription Box

This months bucket bag has a cute pink pop sickle on it with the theme “Effortless Summer”! As usual there are 5 deluxe sized products and a perfume sample. This months box had two versions… I think one was for dry skin and the other was for combination/oily (the one I got). Here’s a peek of all the summer time goodies inside:July

1. Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer ($ 6.8 Value)

This bronzer smells so delicious that it’s hard to stop sniffing it (It contains REAL coca powder -Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Fruit Powder on the ingredient list). I got the shade ‘Chocolate’ which is a matte medium to deep brown with buildable coverage.

2. Beautyblender Blotterazzi™ by beautyblender ($10 Value)

This was one of my most awaited products in the box especially since it’s summer. The Blotterazzi is reusable alternative to blotting paper … I have concerns about bacteria build up on this thing but I’ll still give it a try for at least a week.

3. Ouai Wave Spray ($8.84 Value)

I had never heard of this product before I got it in my box this month. It’s a very non-sticky fragrant spray ideal for wavy hair especially to tame small strays and “ondulate” waves. The fragrance tends to linger for quite some time – another perfect product to use in the summer.

4. First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser With Red Clay ($5.1 Value)

For some reason I was expecting this cleanser to have a dense opaque consistency but I was surprised to find it more liquidy. It smells wonderful and does a great job getting rid of makeup and toxins at the end of the day.

5. Smashbox Photo Finish Oil Free Foundation Primer Pore Minimizing ($ 9.75 Value)

DSC_0267

The texture of this primer reminded me very much of the Benefit pore-fessional pore minimizing primer except that this was was twice as lightweight, humidity resistant and long lasting as it’s Benefit counterpart.

6. NEST Citrine

I’m loving the citrusy playbox perfume theme this summer. This one has a perfect balance of citrus and floral notes.

Subscription Cost = $10

Total box value based on full sized prices = $40.49
