BEAUTY: My First Play Box by Sephora

#HolaBoo's

There's a new trend on the block, which is the subscription boxes. There are many subscription boxes options, from dog treats, wine samples, snack samples, beauty samples you name it!

Like always I kind of like to take my time before jumping into the wagon, and I've been monitoring a few beauty boxes that are currently on the market. 


I finally gave in and decided to give it a go to the New Play by Sephora



Play by Sephora




Why did I decide to go with Play by Sephora, well I am still not a big splurger on high end products, it hurts my soul to spend a lot of dinero on some products that if you really research can get for cheaper, and not to mention a lot of products sell the name instead of what the product is about. Although I want to be cheap at times, my mind still drawn into the High End products I am not going to lie.

I knew this box was going to give me at least one high end product, that I know I've been wanting to try but don't because of the price. I know I can still buy the sample products but I still think they are overpriced.

This is my first time receiving the box and I was hyped about it. I received a total of 
 travel (trial) size products for only $10.00. If you ask me I think that is a pretty good deal. Usually you will find the same size products near any Sephora register for about 14 to 25 dollars.



The box came with the following products: 

Bumble and bumble Prêt-à-Powder -What it is: An all-in-one hair powder featuring dry shampoo, style extending, and volume benefits. 
The standard size of the product is 2 oz/ 56 g with the cost of $27.00 the size of the box is .05 oz/ 14 g

Lancôme DRAMA LIQUI-PENCIL™ Longwear Eyeliner What it is: An extreme, long-wear, high-intensity color liqui-pencil eyeliner. (This thing is gooood) 
The description it totally true, I still have the swatch on my hand after 24 hrs, after washing my hand several times throughout the day. It's intense and smooth! Regular size pencil cost $23.00

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes™ 4-in-1 Mascara What it is: A lengthening, curling, volumizing, and conditioning mascara. 
As mentioned on my Top 3 Drugstore Mascaras post Highend brands have stepped up the game in the lash world. A few of the brands totally hit the market with some good mascaras and Tarte was one of them. I have been wanting to purchase this one and I was happy about receiving this to try out first. The standard size of this product cost $21.00



MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick What it is: An ultra-creamy lipstick with a translucent soft, shiny finish. 
Lipsticksssss how many do we owe? and how many more do we still purchase? I was very, very ecxited about this product as well. Make Up For Ever is one of the brands I am hoping to experience more in 2016. The color on this lipstick was perfect is sort of a brown nude perfecto!!!! Standard size for this product cost $20.00

bareMinerals Pop of Passion™ Lip Oil-Balm What it is: A lip balm that treats lips to decadent hydration and plush color.
This little thing is the cutest and it looks very hydrated, I have not used this one or tried but it looks like it will be good for those lips, on days when you've used matte lipsticks a lot!
Standard cost on this one is $16.00

TOM FORD BLACK ORCHID As mentioned on my Perfume Collection I am not a perfume person, and this thing just re- reminded me why I only own two perfumes lol. I hated the smell of this little thing no offence, this was my only disappointment on the box for personal reasons. It's waaaay to strong for my taste, but the smell does last long.



Overall I am totally satisfied with the $10.00 cost for all the products in the box!
