This month’s theme: #BEAUTYGOALS: Then VS Now
Hey dolls! So my Sephora Play Box came in the mail and this is what I received. So the theme vibe this month has to do with beauty goals: Then VS Now. Implying that before one might not have been quite the makeup/skincare extraordinaire, however, with time now you are! The way they propose this idea with their comics on the pamphlet they send is rather fun. It gives examples of various growth of ones makeup/skincare skills.
Whats in the bag..
First of all the bag is a cute faux denim material with a shoe lace like draw string. The products I received are:
- MARC JACOBS: mascara in Noir
- BENEFIT Cosmetics: the POREfessional Face Primer
- DRYBAR: Detox dry shampoo
- KAT VON D: Tattoo liner in Trooper
- SEPHORA Collection: Mud mask purifying & mattifying
- YVES SAINT LAURENT: Black Opium perfume (BONUS)
This MARC JACOBS mascara is in the color noir. According to the pamphlet it’s said to be a velvet noir major volume mascara. It’s advertised as no-clump, highly pigmented, having a curvy brush to give your lashes a voluminous appearance. If applied after three coats, it’s supposed to help increase length and give a dramatic eyelash look. My eyelashes are super stubborn so I hope this product will give me the volume and length I need!
This pore primer by Benefit POREfessional is supposed to be good for minimizing the appearance of pores. It’s a translucent, oil-free priming balm. Helps control the shine and contains vitamin E which helps protect against skin damaging free radicals. I have been wanting to give this product a try but had been hesitant on getting it. So needless to say I am excited to try it and see if its worth getting a regular size.
This detox dry shampoo by Drybar is said to be a fan favorite. It’s supposed to add volume while absorbing the dirt and oil in between your hair washes. It contains a micro-fine rice powder, this is for oil and order absorption. The powder blends in your hair so you don’t have to worry about any powder being visible. It’s also supposed to add moisture as well as prevent breakage. So, I currently use a dry shampoo and its not bad but I will give this one a dry and compare to what I currently use. I don’t like to wash my hair everyday as I noticed it falls out more and over all not healthy for your hair to wash it daily. So having a good dry shampoo is a must for me.
The tattoo liner by Kat Von D, is the bomb! This is a waterproof, smudgeproof liquid eyeliner. Highly pigmented, buildable and fast drying formula.I just finished my regular size of this product and this was such a nice to surprise to get. I will be repurchasing this product as I do like it. It gives a great wing tip because the superfine brush tip is so precise and easy to work with. The tip is inspired by a tattoo needle which is very much appreciated for a nice wing line look.
Here we have a Sephora collection mud mask. This mask is supposed to be great for purifying, detoxifying and magnifying the skin. It has zinc and copper which will help in clarifying the skin. It’s also supposed to be good for reducing the appearance of blemishes and leaving the skin feeling soft. I am a big fan of masks so I am super excited to try this product out.
This is the bonus item, as always a perfume! This time we have the Black OPIUM by Yves Saint Laurent. It has hints of coffee, vanilla and sweet white flower. It smells a bit to sweet for me, so I am not too keen on this one. As I have said before I don’t mind them only because they give me a chance to try the different scents. However, a different product besides perfumes would be nice every now and then.
So this is it! This was a pretty good play box and can’t wait to try out some of these products.
Thank you for reading, I appreciate the follows, likes and comments!
