March Play! by Sephora Unboxing

Hello everyone! I’m going to go off on a short tangent real quick. This weather sucks. Will it ever stop raining?! Ok now that I got that out of the way, on to Sephora’s March Play box. The theme of March’s box is The Gleam Team. My first thoughts before I even opened the box were I hope there’s an awesome highlighter in the box and a shimmery shadow. Let’s pop open the box and see what is inside.¬† There’s the little booklet that has your Play pass and all of the information about the products. Then there’s the bag that says Glow Your Own Way. Of course I started singing “You can go your own way…go your own way!”

PRODUCTS

Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast– This product is supposed to give your hair volume and body. It smells slightly flowery and a hint of berries but you can also tell there is alcohol in it. I sprayed this on my hand and it doesn’t feel sticky. It feels like there is nothing on my hand. I’m looking forward to trying this out. The size that came in the box is a travel size so you can pick up this same bottle in stores or online for $15.

Glamglow GLOWSTARTER Mega Illuminating Moisturizer– This can be used before your primer to provide that glow from within look. This smells like an orange dreamsicle popsicle, one of my faves as a kid. I think that this could be used as a very sheer highlighter base and use a subtle powder highlight on top. One thing that I noticed is that the tube is actually full of product. If you want to know my thoughts more in depth on this please let me know in the comments. The full size retails for $49.

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Pink– When I first saw this I thought that this was a repeat item. It was not. There was a Laura Mercier caviar shadow stick in a previous box. My first impression just swatched on my hand was it is nice and creamy, and not too dry. It’s a really pretty pinky champagne shade, which I think will suit just about everyone. I smudged it out right after as you can see, just to see how it could perform blended out a bit. I think this shade can easily be used alone on the eyes for a quick wash of shimmery color on the lids for the spring and summer. This retails for $30.

Next up we have the Benefit Watts Up cream to powder highlight. I already own this and currently trying to use it up as part of my project pan. I think the color is pretty, and it sometimes works with my skin tone. This isn’t my favorite formula. I may actually give this to a friend or family member. This retails for $30.

The last product is the Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm. This is a multi-use product. You can use this as a primer or on top of makeup up to create that soft focus blur on the skin. It also is supposed to give the skin a luminous effect. This product is also is supposed to work with all skin types and help with dullness, uneveness, dryness and pores. This retails for $36.

The perfume sample this month is the Chloé Fleur de Parfum. Like the name suggests, it is extremely floral. There are notes of rose, lemon, verbena, freesia, cherry blossom, white cedar, amber, and bitter almond. I feel like the amber warms up the scent slightly. Personally, I am not a fan of scents like these. I find them to be strong and occasionally get a headache. The largest bottle retails for $132 and the rollerball retails for $28.

That’s everything that came in my March Sephora Play box. I think for someone who has never tried any of these products, this box is awesome. For me, the perfume I don’t like at all and I’ve already used the Benefit Watts Up before, this box is ok. I’m excited to try out the finishing balm, the eye shadow stick and the illuminating moisturizer.

That is everything that came in my December Play box. I’m very excited for this box. I feel like I say that for every box, but I think for the first time I LOVE the perfume bonus. My boyfriend was over when I opened this box and he sprayed it on himself. I was shocked and yelled what are you doing? That’s a perfume! Strangely enough it worked on him and didn’t smell too feminine on him. This scent is intoxicating and addicting. It is a little sweet, a little bold, has a warm scent and a little woody. The Urban Decay setting spray I already own and know that I love. The drybar Hydrating shot is something my hair is in desperate need of. I just wish that one bottle wasn’t a single use. I’m still on the hunt for the perfect primer for my skin. As far as the mascara, I’m always looking to try out mascaras. The lip product, I love the color red, but I’m not very brave to wear it all the time. I’m hoping to wear this one and the others that I own all at least once in the next couple of weeks.

That’s all for today. I hope that you enjoyed this post. Is anyone else subscribed to this box? What are your thoughts?
