THIS MONTH’S THEME IS…
Fall into Beauty!
Play! by Sephora always provides us with this handy Pamphlet that explains Great information about the current month’s Beauty Bag Items!
Here, my box is opened, but untouched.
I moved the pamphlet, so the beauty bag would be visible.
All of this month’s items!
STILA STAY ALL DAY® WATERPROOF LIQUID EYE LINER (BLACK) – VALUE $11
Let’s start with one of my ‘Tried & True’ products: This eyeliner! OMG, y’all, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this eyeliner. If you want a jet black liquid eyeliner that is easily controlled and won’t budge all day, seriously, look NO farther. This is it! Also, this sample has exactly one half the product that the full size has. Pretty Cool! (Swatched below)
BENEFIT COSMETICS GIMME BROW VOLUMIZING FIBER GEL in 03 Medium – Value $8
Two ‘Tried & True’ products in a row?! Sephora, you know me SO well! Seriously, I have received this Volumizing Fiber Gel for THREE months in a row through different boxes, and I am JUST as excited each time I see it. I could never have enough of this stuff. It has an easily buildable formula that creates the illusion of full brows by adhering tiny microfibers to the skin. It also tames your brows for a sleek sculpted look. This is a staple product of mine that I don’t think I will ever give up. (Swatched below)
BELIF THE TRUE CREAM MOISTURIZING BOMB – VALUE $7.60
I was really excited to receive The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb instead of the Aqua Bomb, since I have received the Aqua Bomb before. BOTH are amazing products. I wore the Moisturizing Bomb all day like a regular moisturizer and I learned that this thick cream is MUCH better used at bedtime. The Aqua Bomb, however, is the perfect day time moisturizer! Both deserve to be used in your skincare routine. I want them in full sized!
LAURA MERCIER VELOUR LOVERS LIP COLOUR IN HAPPY – VALUE $21.37
I cannot tell you the last time I wore a traditional lipstick instead of a liquid lippie. But this color is GORGEOUS. Wow, what a perfect shade for transitioning into Fall. It looks darker in this picture than it really is. It’s more of a deep shimmery fuchsia. The color lasts all day with a few touch ups. It feels like satin on the lips, and of course since it is not matte, it is not transfer proof. It’s a good lipstick, indeed, though. (Swatched below)
DEVACURL MELT INTO MOISTURE MATCHA BUTTER CONDITIONING MASK – VALUE $5.42
This hair mask, like most, does what it says it does. I really like the versatility of this one. You can use it like conditioner after you shampoo your hair, you can wear it as a quick 20-30 minute hair mask, or you can leave it on overnight for intense moisture goodness. It makes me wonder if you can do any hair mask like this? You would think so.
STELLA MCCARTNEY POP – VALUE $2.50
I know so many of you find it hard to get excited about the perfume samples, but I love them! For YEARS I would only wear Juicy Couture Perfume (don’t get me wrong, I still love Juicy!). Now I like to mix it up. This scent is bold and floral, which is right up my alley! That being said, I’ve received this exact sample at least once before, maybe twice.. Give me something new, Sephora.

OVERALL VERDICT: THE VALUE WAS THERE AND THE PRODUCTS WERE ON POINT AND EVEN WENT WELL WITH THE ‘Fall Into Beauty’ THEME. I HAVE AND WILL CONTINUE TO USE EVERYTHING THAT WAS IN THIS BOX. Play! by Sephora IS SOMETHING I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO AND THIS MONTH was no exception.
