Hello lovelies! If you saw my last post you know how excited I am to clear out the items that no longer brings me joy. As you can tell by the title this post is quite the opposite. I think I have said in one of my previous posts that receiving the Play box is like my monthly shopping trip, and I don’t even have to leave my house! September’s theme is The Unbasic Basics. As I looked at the products, I didn’t quite understand the theme, but then it suddenly hit me. It’s the perfect set of products for a quick and out the door look. For this box I’m going to list the products in order that you would use them.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day night cap overnight perfector (use the night before) Retails: $28
Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Retails: $38
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper Retails: $20
Anastasia Clear Brow Gel Retails: $22
Sephora Rouge Shine Lipstick in No. 14 Love Spell Retails: $12.50
Atelier Cologne Collection Azur-Sud Magnolia Retails: $125
That’s everything that came in my box this month. I think that you can use every single one of these products as a quick 5 minute look. Of course you may want to include your own concealer and/or mascara. This is a good foundation for a no-makeup makeup look. I’m excited to use the Ole Henriksen moisturizer and the Kat Von D Tattoo liner. I have the ink liner and I would love to compare the two. Hope you all are having a great start to your week! See you in my next post!
Hello Lovelies! Today I am finally sharing my May Play! by Sephora box. I know this post is coming quite late. I asked on Twitter if any of you still wanted to see this post, and some of you still wanted to see it. So let’s crack into the box. I should’ve taken a video of me trying to figure out how to open the box. Kudos to Sephora for using black and white striped tape and placing it exactly to match the stripes on the box. So when I finally got into the box, I saw the booklet that contains all the information about what is in the box and under that a cute little bag that contained everything.
The first thing that I pulled out of the bag was the Atelier Cologne in the scent Orange Sanguine. It comes in the little sample jar without a spray top. There is also a postcard inside the packaging. the description says that there is notes of sweet blood orange and bitter orange peel, with a hint of geraniums. This seems to have a strong citrusy, orange scent, so if you like that I say go for it. This can also be an amazing scent for the summer.
Next I pulled out the Origins Maskimizer. This product should be applied as a primer for whatever face mask that you are putting on. They also included a sample of the Drink Up and Clear Improvement Masks. I think I’ve said this in another post, but I am starting to get really into skincare and taking care of my skin. I’m super excited to be trying this out.
I loved other Korres items that I have tried out in the past and I’ve had my eye on the Wild Rose Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial for a little while now. I’ve used the Greek Yoghurt Advanced Nourishing Sleeping Facial in the past instead of a moisturizer and I can’t say enough. The only thing I don’t like about it is there is a strong floral scent to it. It’s not a horrible scent but it is very strong.
Next up is the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! deep conditioning mask. I don’t have much experience with hair masks. I’ve used one in the past and I was happy with how my hair looked and felt afterwards. I’m thinking that this will be good for the summer, especially since I pretty much live in the pool all summer.
The last two items are lip products. First up is the Tarte Tarteist lip liner in Latergram. I’m super excited to try this out, but I’m not going to lie, I was a little bummed that it wasn’t a full size liner. The color of it is great and something I will definitely use. Last but not least is the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstic in Kimchi. This color is a fantastic hot pink shade, perfect for the summer. The color is definitely out of my comfort zone, BUT I am trying wear more lip colors that I don’t normally wear.
That’s what was in my May Sephora Play! box. I hope you enjoyed this post. Stay tuned for a new post next week. If you want me to do a full review of each product from each box, let me know! I hope you all have a great weekend!
