Play! by Sephora Subscription Box Review - June 2018


Summer Nights - June 2018


This is a review of a monthly cosmetic subscription box called Play! by Sephora. It costs only $10 per month including shipping. The retail value for this month's box is $35.73. For June I received the following products:
  1. Too Faced - Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick in Queen B, made in the USA, .1 fl. oz., $5.25 retail value
  2. Alterna Haircare - Caviar Anit-Aginig Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist, 1.4 fl. oz., $8.75 retail value
  3. Milk Makeup - Kush Mascara in Boom Black, made in Italy, .10 fl. oz., $7.05 retail value
  4. Prada - Candy Sugar Pop eau de perfum spray, made in Spain, .05 fl. oz., $2.70 retail value
  5. Clinique - Take the Day Off Makeup Remover for lids, lashes & lips, made in the USA, 1 fl. oz., $4.52 retail value
  6. Belif - The True Cream Aqua Bomb, made in Korea, .33 fl. oz., $7.46 retail value
I'm so happy I finally received a sample of the Too Faced Matte Lipstick, I've been wanting to try it for a long time. Thankfully, they picked a pretty color, some of them are a bit wild. It's powdery rose pink color that is very pretty and understated. It's really easy to apply with a decent applicator tip, it's not drying and it's quite long lasting. I really like it a lot! I've received the Alterna Haircare Volume Mist before and I wasn't impressed. It's just ok, nothing special for my long, fine, straight hair. Maybe it works better with a different type of hair. I haven't received a Milk Makeup sample before, so I'm anxious to give this mascara a try this weekend. I'm also happy to receive a Prada perfume sample and this one is yummy. Strangely, mine wasn't full to the top like perfume samples are normally. I really love this scent, it's going on my favorite list. It's a floral scent with top notes of bergamot, green citrus and red apple. Middle notes are caramel, peach and floral and the base note is vanilla. I first smell a powdery floral followed by vanilla, caramel, apple and lastly bergamot. If you enjoy food and floral scents, you will probably approve of this one. I'm not a fan of really thin liquid facial cleansers that you need a cotton ball to apply. This Clinique one says to use only on the lids, lashes and lips which is odd. I don't want to have to pull out a 2nd cleanser to clean the rest of my face!  I'm willing to give it a try on stubborn mascara. I've tried the Belif moisturizer before and I liked it. This one is like a gel serum in consistency and it sinks in quickly which I prefer. It also has a cooling effect which is appreciated in this hot summer weather. 

I'm very happy with the June box even though the retail value is on the lower end compared to previous boxes. My favorite item is the lipstick and my least favorite is the makeup remover.
