February Sephora Play! Box #591

Monday, February 27, 2017

In case you don't know, Sephora has a monthly subscription box for $10 per month. There is a waitlist, but it seems to open up near the end of every month. February's Sephora Play! box had three variations - mine included the Tarte lip balm, while the other two included either a Nars or Bite Beauty lipstick.

The bag the items came in was silky and blush - I'd likely have reused it as a lingerie travel bag if I hadn't lost the pull ties into the depths of the bag already! The box always contains 5 makeup or skincare samples and 1 "bonus" perfume sample. February's Play! bag included:

Total Paid: $10
Total Value: $31.36

I didn't end up swatching the two lip products in this box, but I've heard particularly negative reviews about the Too Faced plumping gloss. Apparently it has cayenne in it, which has caused some pretty bad reactions with some people. I'm still going to try it because I'm a glutton for punishment, but it's worth noting. The Tarte lip balm is completely sheer, but moisturizing - the absolute best part about it is the beautiful packaging.

** Update about the Too Faced plumping gloss: I tried it, it tingled to the point of slightly burning, but it wasn't too bad and it did result in temporarily fuller lips. I eat a lot of spicy food, so maybe that's why it didn't affect me as badly as others. I like it and would even consider buying the full-size. **

    1. I've thought about getting one for you for awhile, because I figured anything you didn't like you could always pass to Gwyn!

  2. I'll trade Candy for Clementine in this month's box. I was so excited, but it smells like someone smoked and then covered it up with perfume. Really weird.

    1. I like Candy, but I feel like it's a little sweeter than you'll like. You can definitely have mine though!
