Sephora Play! Unboxing September 2018

I absolutely love all things beauty and makeup (hence the whole entire page dedicated to makeup, lol). I knew I wanted to try out new products without committing to full-sized expensive products. Plus, I'm balling on a budget, y'all. I knew I wanted to try subscription services but didn't really know where to start. I had used the Target and Walmart Beauty Boxes in the past, but pretty recently I became obsessed with premium beauty products, and I haven't looked back. I am in the process of trying to become a Sephora affiliate blog, but it takes a really long time. There are several boxes out there, but I needed one with good products and a good price. I picked two boxes, Birchbox and the Sephora Play! box. I have been so impressed with the value for the money of these two. I suggest you go and sign up.

Without further ado, here is the unboxing of the September 2018 unboxing of the Sephora Play! box!!!

Look how adorable the box looks when you open it!!

All of the PLAY! boxes come with 50 bonus play rewards points for use at Sephora and tips and tricks for using the makeup and products that they sent. The play points can be used to get even more samples from Sephora. 

This month's box came with six products:

1. Tidal Brightening Enzyme Cream

The Tidal cream is a rejuvenation cream that plumps and brightens your dull spots. The product looks and smells great. I tried it on my skin and it left a crisp feeling that was enjoyable. I'm going to try it overnight on my dull spots. GRADE: A

2. Sephora Lashcraft Big Volume Mascara

This has a decent applicator, although I prefer a bit more curl. My 4-year old son tried it on (he loves to help with my pictures, just wait and see. Haha. It looked great on his blonde eyelashes and made his eyes pop. I tried it out, too, and really thought it had a good color and wasn't overly clumpy. I would probably choose another brand, but I would definitely use this one if it wasn't available. GRADE: B

3. Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Stick
Does it get any cuter?

Totally blendable color

I love hybrid products. I like products that can be used for multiple things. These lip and cheek sticks can be hit-or-miss. I loved this one. It is SUPER blendable. The color is adorable. This was a definite hit for me and my favorite item in the box. LOVE. GRADE: A++

4. Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Primer
This primer had a nice feel to it. I've got a preferred primer, but I'd like to try this one out and see whether it has additional benefits to my skin that mine doesn't have. GRADE: B

5. VIKTOR & ROLF Flowerbomb Nectar
This little perfume has a really floral but not too strong scent. I'm getting really into perfumes and scents lately and was happy to see this in my box. It's so dang cute in presentation, too. GRADE: A

6. Peter Thomas Roth Heat Mask
Masks are all the rage right now. I'm super stoked to try this one out. If it were up to me, I would have opted for another makeup product, though. GRADE: B

All-in-all, I think we've got another solid Play! box!!! I can't wait to see what comes out next month!
