Sephora Nov'16 Play Box!

So I took the plunge and subscribed to the Sephora Play box and this is my first impression/review of the box!

My Play by Sephora box came super quick this month!! I JUST started it so I'm rather excited to see how it plays out (HAHAHA catch the pun?) 

It's $10 every month inclusive of shipping and all and they send u a couple of deluxe sample products to try out, ranging from skincare to makeup to scent. Sounds quite good right!

Packaging ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Effort inside the box ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

I like this big colorful brochure! It feels more effortful compared than just a slip of paper or anything. I've ordered other subscription boxes before but opening this is really making me quite happy alr. 

It makes customers feel important, u know? Like a $10 box is not just haphazardly packed together.


Idk if this is a monthly thing but it comes with a extra card with 50 points but u gotta scan it in stores! Not too shabby since the subscription of the Play box don't get u regular points, I think.

I really really like the bag! The doodles are so cute and they make good travel bags for small miscellaneous stuff haha

Oh and I've been hoarding mini sample perfumes like crazy. Just realized (took me long enough) that they make traveling so much easier. 

Haven't tried anything of the Estee Edit line so fingers crossed. Oh, and the small travel bottle makes my life very easy. I like travel-size friendly stuff

The ones I'm most excited about it the Glam Glow mask and the Coverfx Illuminating Base! I've yet to try the Kevin Aucoin one I have too omg. 

The Laura Mercier Cavier Stick in Rosegold is sooooo pretty!! I will put up a swatch and comparison later. This is quite a good size too! Luv it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

The one I'm most uninterested in is the Sephora lipgloss. Hahaha can't have the whole cake and eat it too, I guess. Gonna pass this along to family or smth.

I went to dig up some of my older crayons and the names were all too long so I'm gonna put them below โฌ‡๏ธ

1. Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Crayon
2. Rimmel ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick
3. Essence 2in1 Eye Shadow & Liner

I thought the Rimmel one would be a close dupe but no leh! The three are quite different. 

The LM one is REALLY the perfect rosegold! The Essence one is more pink irl while the Rimmel one is more champagne. The LM looks like a good mix between. Very pleased with this shade ๐Ÿ˜ Maybe I'll wear it later~ 

I let them dry and did a smudge/rub-test. Basically ran my finger over it repeatedly and the first to go was the Rimmel one. The other two didn't budge! Even with micellar water, they were quite tough to get off! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Overall, I like paying 10$ for such a variety! Cant wait to see what December has in hold!
