Happy Saturday! I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far. This week the February Play! by Sephora box arrived, and it’s time to take a look at the products and discuss my first impressions.
The theme of this month’s box is “The Soft Side”.
This month, the products arrived in a silky bag whose color and texture match the theme perfectly.
Let’s take a look at what was inside:
I’ve never tried any of the Nars Velvet Lip Glides before, but I was pleasantly surprised with this one. The formula is very easy to wear, feels moisturizing and the color is perfect. I can see wearing this quite a bit to the office.
I had heard that these Lip Injections were very intense, and after trying this one I have to strongly agree. This wasn’t just a “slight tingling sensation” but was much more irritating than that. I wasn’t a fan of this one, and I’m not very interested in lip plumpers in general.
This perfume has a lot of sweet and fruity notes, but there was also something heavier underneath. After it was sitting on my skin for a while, the heaviness was very noticeable. I like the complexity here.
This was unfortunately a bit of a fail for me. The mascara was very clumpy and thick on the lashes and didn’t give me the lengthening effect I love with other mascaras. The clumpiness was just too heavy.
I love receiving eye creams in subscription boxes because even when in sample size, there’s usually enough product for many applications. This allows you to really see what the longer term effect will be on your skin. So far, I really like this cream. My undereyes are very dark, so I enjoy the brightening effect.
According to the info sheet, this can be used as a regular day or night moisturizer, but can also function as a primer. I do enjoy a multitasking product! The cream is thick, but absorbed well into the skin. I enjoyed the way it made my skin feel afterward.
There was a mixture of hits and misses in this month’s box, but as always I find it fun and interesting to be able to try out a variety of on-trend, higher end makeup brands.
