PLAY! By SEPHORA Jan ’17 – Beauty Set Go!

Hello Hello! and a Happy 2017 to you all! I’m sure you’ve been stuffing yourself silly with cookies and custard and eggnog and all of those festive season goodies this past December. With all of that behind, some of us are ready to hit the gym to get a head start on that summer bod. With that- Sephora brings in the new year with a bunch of skin detox and ultra-hydrating products to motivate you. And with the new year comes new packaging! Here’s yet another playful bag to add to your collection.

This bag has a gym/ workout feel to it with the neon pink and the net at the back.

Tarte FRXXXTION Stick Exfoliating Cleanser

Scrolling over the Jan ’17 spoilers for this month, I was expecting some sort of a foundation stick by Tarte. To my surprise this product was actually a cleanser! It’s kind of like a black bar of soap in a twisty tube. You apply it after rinsing your face with water. It layers on a black/grey facemask like film. It doesn’t lather toomuch when you wash it off but it definitely leaves your face clean and baby-soft. Love!

FARMACY Honey Portion Anti-Oxidant Mask

This mask is supposed to be an intense moisturizing and anti-oxidant mask. As you massage it onto your skin, it turns into an emulsion and warms up to increase circulation to the face. Wonderful for the winter! Another great thing is that it washes off leaving no residue behind.

Clinique  Almost Lipstick

This is a lovely sheer lipstick with chap stick like properties. It’s wonderfully moisturizing and leaves behind a soft berry tint that looks different on everyone depending on your skin-tone. You can also layer it on for heavier pigmentation.

AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact

Whether this is a skincare product or makeup – you can’t tell. This one blurs the line and almost disappears into your skin. I found that it’s best to set this with translucent powder – it tends to look exta glowy after a few hours… oh well, that was the theme of the box this month 😀

Ouai Treatment Masque

Another interesting sounding hair mask! Yay!.. I was quite skeptical when the info said that it repaired split ends but after leaving it on for 10 minutes (on washed hair), I noticed that it made my hair a lot silkier. It also smells heavenly and doesn’t weight your hair down a ton.

Tory Burch – Love Relentlessly 

The perfume sampler in this months box was worth mentioning! I absolutely love patchouli notes. This perfume starts out with a strong patchouli and then tones down to a more demure floral rose-orris scent

I think this months box was one of the better ones for me! especially with the darker toned lipstick and Almond shade Amore Pacific CC cream. In the previous boxes, I found myself giving away some of the lip products because they were too bright but the shades in the past two boxes suite everyone.

Play! By Sephora October 2016 Subscription Box

Nudestix BelleLip and cheek pencil ($8 Value)


This warm pink lip & cheek stick makes a good cream blush but it can also be used as a nude pink lipstick.

Verb Leave In Mist ($1.75 Value)


This is most definitely a non-sticky leave-in conditioner. It’s not too moisturizing but it sure smells lovely. I tried it both on dry and wet hair and it seemed to work better on dry hair for me.

Smashbox Always On Liquid Lip ($6 Value)


Another lovely fall color – this liquid lipstick is indeed a very long lasting formula! However beware of dry lips. You definitely require some chap-stick application before you layer it on.

All In One Egg Mellow Cream ($4.30 Value)


With a cream mousse desert like texture this is another lovely fall moisturizer. It smells heavenly and looks delicious :p

Skin Inc Pure Revival Peel ($4.68 Value)


At first I thought this skin peel did nothing but it sure does bring a glow to a dull complexion. I was quite surprised. As usual… this box is valued a lot higher than the price 🙂
