Spring is here and its time to cue to everything Blush. The February edition of the Sephora Play Box, seemed to be a harbinger of the upcoming days of Blush. Sephora Play is a monthly Beauty Subscription service. Priced at $10, it includes a set of 5 beauty , skincare and fragrance samples, all chosen around a monthly theme. The blush bag for the month of February was the best bag so far. It scream Spring in every way. The boxes can sometimes be hit or miss with the products. SO without much further ado, lets get started with the contents for February.
The theme for the month of February was "The Soft Side" which featured products highlighting feminine hues and a softer side, in makeup and skin care.
I have naturally bee stung (looking lips ), so I dont need a lip plumper. But if Sephora has sent one along the way, why not try it. Too Faced Lip Injection Glossy in Milkshake, is a sheer tinted gloss, which uses a botanical-infused formula to visibly plump lips. It also claims to hydrate and soften the lips over time. It can be used along the edges of the lips, to plump then, and layers well under other lipstick. Its got a light shimmer, which gives off a subtle sheen, if used on its own.
I use waterproof mascara on a daily basis. Every other mascara sample, that I receive in subscription boxes, is not a waterproof one. Why is that always ? Sephora Collection Lashcraft Length and Volume Mascara, has a unique paddle shaped wand. It claims that the first coat builds the length and the second coat gives it volume. I mean, my Maybelline Falsies(waterproof) Mascara gives a better output for length and volume, and is priced lesser . The paddle shaped wand, though is nice. I only wish it came in a waterproof version. It claims also that you dont need make up remover, to remove it, just warm water would do. Then my question is , what if it starts to rains and I am wearing this mascara? March showers are famous , right.
The Origins GinZing Eye cream is a cult favorite amongst beauty lovers across the world. But i had not tried it personally. So when i came across the sample of Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream, I was excited. Its a luminous eye cream for starters. Something I had never heard of. Maybe I am a bit late on the wagon, of makeup and skin care blended together. I know I should use eye cream more often, along with my Retinol routine. Since this eye cream has a slight shimmer factor, it can also be used as a subtle highlighter, or as an instant pick me up.
Last but not least, is the fragrance sample. Marc Jacobs Divine Decadance, is earthy and woody, with top notes of champagne extract, orange blossom, bergamot. It layers well with other fragrances.
