Hello There Babies! I got my Sephora Play November Box a few days ago and I tested them immediately. Guess what? I really enjoyed this month’s contents. Lots of new stuff to try and I’m glad that they finally focused on a few skincare goodies.
Ready to check out what I got?
Philosophy Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Mask (1 oz: $18, 2.5 oz: $35) – I’ve heard good things about this mask and I think it might still be on my wishlist, but anyways, thank god for Sephora Play minis, I got to try this and I have nothing but good words for this mask. In fact, this is an Allure Best of Beauty 2017 Winner, which I think is a deserving recognition for this product. As someone with an oily-prone skin, this mask is perfect. It has salicylic acid which controls breakouts and prevents oiliness. I love that this is very exfoliating but it’s not harsh on the skin and that there’s no strong clay scent. All throughout my usage of this, I never had a breakout whatsoever and my face feels thoroughly cleaned and smooth. My whiteheads and blackheads are almost gone and I like that this mask spreads evenly over the face while not having to use a lot. Love this thing dearly.
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo (Mini: $10, 5.3 oz; $22) – I surprisingly enjoyed using this dry shampoo. I love that it didn’t leave any whitish residue on my hair while making it look clean. Though it didn’t necessarily volumize, I like the texture of my hair after spraying with this. I also use this dry shampoo to relax my fine frizzes and it made my hair shiny. The only thing that I don’t seem to like is the strong perfume smell. It can be a little too much.
Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer (1.7 oz: $45) – I keep seeing this moisturizer at Sephora all the time, and I think I may have tried this on the back of my hand. Somehow, it just didn’t hit me enough to buy it. I wasn’t really sure what it was, I think it may be the fact that the scent seemed a little too plain for me or what, but now that I’ve tried it and have actually applied it to my face, I was like OMG! I love it! this moisturizer may be plain and lightweight, but it packs a punch. It feels like a gel, but it’s actually more like a very creamy gel, and oh my, just a little bit of this and your face gets moisturized all throughout the day or night. Impressive.
Burberry My Burberry Blush Eau de Parfum (Mini: $29, 1 oz: $68, 1.6 oz: $90, 3 oz: $120) – Reviewed HERE. All praises for this amazing scent. For me, this is one of my best fragrance finds this year. I love the unique non-boring pomegranate scent. It’s a pretty feminine floral scent that is intriguing and riveting at the same time.
Sephora Collection Rouge Cream Lipstick in The Red (0.14 oz: &12.50) – Not exactly my kind of red, but that pigment! oh, men… so gorg… This is a creamy lipstick with a satin finish, and if you can find the perfect red or the perfect shade for your lips with this line, I swear, you can’t go wrong with this because as I said before, the pigment of this lipstick is to die for. I had to use a waterproof makeup remover to remove the swatch from my skin. That shows that this lipstick means serious business, and for the price, it’s perfect.
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara (0.32 oz: $26) – I think I may have found one of the best mascaras ever. Not kidding here, I’ve been obsessed with mascaras lately and have been on the lookout for the best volumizing mascaras on the market. Just when I thought I may have gathered some of the best (which I’ll be reviewing soon), I found this one from MJ and I’m really impressed at its volumizing and lengthening power. I don’t have a lot of lashes in life, but this made my lashes looked like I applied horse shampoo on them. LOL. But yeah, you get the mental picture, this mascara really adds drama to your lashes, and on top of that, it doesn’t smudge or clump.
With this month’s box, I think that I’m pretty satisfied with the contents, and my top favorites are the following; Philosophy Pore Extractor Mask, Farmacy Honey Drop Moisturizer, Burberry My Burberry Blush (obviously), and Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara.
