Sephora Play: August & September

Again, I am playing catch up for August and September. If you remember, I began subscribing to Sephora’s Play box a couple months ago. It is similar to Birchbox as you get six deluxe samples in a box in the mail for $10 a month.

Let’s take a peek at August’s Play box.


August’s theme was eyes. Beginning on the top left, was a sample of Urban Decay’s perversion mascara. Below that is the Sephora Collection contour eye pencil 12 hour wear waterproof eyeliner in the color love affair. Next, is a Make Up Forever’s artist eye shadow in the shade I-544. There was a perfume sample from Clean in reserve warm cotton. On the top right is from Lancome and it is their energie de vie smoothing and glowing liquid care moisturizer. Not pictured is an eye renewal balm from Algenist. My favorite sample was the eye balm from Algenist as it is not pictured and in my bathroom because I use it twice a day and I pat it around my eyes.

I think August’s box was really good. I like getting mascara samples because I think they are great to take with when traveling. The same goes for the eyeliner and eye shadow. The smaller sample size is good for a makeup bag on the go.


Moving on to September I was equally impressed. The top postcard looking thing is a perfume sample from Atelier Cologne in the scent sud magnolia. On the bottom left, is the sheer transformation moisturizer from Ole Henriksen. This moisturizer is so nice. The Living Proof sample is the perfect hair day night cap overnight protector. I’ve received this sample before in a Birchbox and really like it. It’s an overnight hair mask. On the right, the top silver tube is from Anastasia Beverly Hills and is the clear brow gel. Below that is Kat Von D’s tattoo liner. Finally, there is a rouge shine lipstick in the color love spell from Sephora Collection.

I have two favorites from September’s box. The clear brow gel and tattoo liner are some of my favorites. That liner is my go to black liner. I have the full size so this will be nice once that one is empty and dried out. All in all, I think September’s box was great. I got an email yesterday October’s box shipped and I look forward to what is in it.

Between Birchbox and Sephora Play, I think I tend to enjoy Sephora’s box better. I like being able to go to a Sephora and get these products if I wanted to. With Birchbox, I have to order online and wait for it to arrive. If I were to recommend one, Sephora Play would be the one.

Do you get any monthly subscription boxes? I want to know what you subscribe to!
