December Play! by Sephora Unboxing

Hello lovelies! Today I’m sharing everything that came in my December Play box. December’s box I think had the perfect combination of products. I really like watching Sephora’s YouTube channel when they release the monthly Play box video. I do have to say the options for the box this month are amazing. The theme for this months is GLAM STRAIGHT; perfect for the holiday season. Time to jump in to what I got.

First up is the Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Prism Cream. I’m intrigued by this product. It can be used as an all over face cream to give your skin some radiance, or as a highlighter. Which I’m assuming if it can be used in both ways it would give you more of a subtle highlight. I would think it would be perfect for a more natural, glow from within look. Retails: $42

Next there is the Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Wheat. This is an eye primer, which I think the shade will be perfect for my skin tone. I also think that I can get away with just using this on my eyes, set it, throw a slightly deeper shade into the crease, mascara and go. I’m excited to try this one out. Retails: $28

Staying on eyes for another minute. I got the Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Shadow Duo in Golden Hour. The two shades are Turned On and Psyched. I’m so happy that these shades were chosen. They can be worn by just about everyone and can be used together or all over the lid by itself. Retails:$29

For lips, I received the Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss in Vintage. It is a beautiful rosy, pink shade with a rose gold/pink micro glitter. It reminds me of one of the BareMinerals GenNude liquid lipsticks, I can’t remember the shade. I’m excited to use this. I think once I go through a few other lip glosses, I will definitely use this. It is a perfect everyday shade. Retails $16

Next I have a hair product by Drybar. It is their Triple Sec 3-in-1.  I have used this in the past and I loved it. I have been wanting to repurchase this, but I just haven’t gotten around to it. I’m interested to see if I will still love this. I will use this the next time I actually do my hair and isn’t up in a messy bun. Retails: $26, $13

Last up is the Tom Ford Black Orchid Eau De Parfum. I am so beyond excited to get a sample of this. Perfume is such a personal choice and it is expensive. It is also an item that is difficult to test out to see what you like, how long it will last on you, how it works with your body chemistry, etc. This scent has been hyped up a lot all over social media over the years. This is warm and floral, and dark and sexy. At first I was not a fan of it, but it is starting to grow on me. I will use this on my next night out and see how it works. Retails: $171, $122, $84, $45

That’s everything that came in my December Play box. I hope you enjoyed this post. I really enjoy doing this kind of post. If you want me to continue to do this kind of post, let me know. Do you subscribe to the Sephora Play box? What other subscription boxes do you receive? It doesn’t have to be strictly beauty. Let me know, I would love to hear from you. Have a great weekend!

November Play! by Sephora Unboxing

Hello lovelies! Today I’m sharing everything that I got in my November Play box. I loved last months box, so I’m really excited to dig in and see what this month’s box has to offer. I will keep this post short and sweet as I’m currently trying to reformat the way I am going to be doing unboxings.

November’s box theme is Survival of the Chillest. I’m guessing that the items in this box will be all about taking a moment out of your day and have some me time or a treat me item. In the box there is the little pamphlet that lists everything that came in my box, BUT on the other side it is a coloring page. I think that is a cool and unique idea.

PRODUCTS

MARC JACOBS Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara Retails: $26

PHILOSOPHY Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Mask Retails: $35

AMIKA Perk Up Dry Shampoo Retails: $22

SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Cream Lipstick in The Red Retails: $12.50

FARMACY Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer Retails: $45

BURBERRY My Burberry Blush Retails:$29-$120

That’s everything that came in my November Play box. I am really excited to try out everything. When I found out the Marc Jacobs mascara was going to be in this month’s box, I was excited because I had been wanting to try it out. I have about 5 other mascara to still try out before purchasing a brand new one. I’m also excited about the pore extracting mask, the dry shampoo and the lipstick (still looking for the perfect red). The moisturizer I don’t not like getting one, but I feel like I get a new moisturizer in every box that I get. The Burberry fragrance is nice, but not my cup of tea. It’s a beautiful floral with a slight sweetness to it.
