Yesterday I received my April Sephora Play Box and thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Insta Beauty. It’s all about products that have you camera ready in no time. The bag itself captures that perfectly. It’s a white canvas bag with green drawstrings, purple lettering and it says ‘Make It Snappy’. The weather has also been absolutely amazing the past couple days and it gave me the opportunity to take these photos outside, which made me really happy.
The first product we have is the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask, Seaweed Radiance Facial. This is a five minute facial that uses seaweed, red algae and lotus seed to get rid of dry skin and bring back the glow to your skin. I love things like this, so I can’t wait to try it.
The second product is the Peter Thomas Roth Skin to Die For No Filter Mattifying Primer and Complexion Perfector. Much like other primers you put this on before your foundation and concealer, although you can wear this on it’s own, but this also helps to reduce the look of pores and basically blur any imperfections your skin may have. I’m loving all things Peter Thomas Roth right now, so I’ll let you know what I think of this.
Moving on we have the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Perfector in #6. I’ve always heard great things about the Make Up For Ever foundations and this is in that small little section between foundation and BB cream. It’s a skin tint with an SPF, in this case of 25. Based on the initial swatch I did it appeared to be very buildable and I would guess you’re going to get a light to medium coverage. I’m definitely interested by this.
Next is the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Poreless Finish Airbrush Pressed Powder. It’s a translucent pressed finishing powder that is supposed to reduce the look of pores and keep away oils so you don’t look shiny. I put this on this morning and so far I’m really liking it. Not only did it set my foundation and concealer, but I would have had no problem just going out like that and not even bothering with contour or anything else. I definitely recommend it.
Second to last we have the Urban Decay Hi-fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipgloss in SPL. These are new and the pictures I’ve been seeing on Instagram and Twitter of different shades are so pretty, so I was excited when I saw this. There are 20 different shades, including SPL and after this I will be placing an order. This one specifically is a really pretty light pink shade with a ton of pink, blue and green sparkles. When it hits the light it’s really something else. When I swatched it I was expecting it to be like other glosses, where it’s a little bit tacky and that is one of my least favorite things about gloss, but it wasn’t. And it smells absolutely amazing. It’s a mix of vanilla and mint, which is one of my favorite smells and was the scent of one of my first ever lip glosses so it brings back a lot of memories.
And the last product, the bonus product, is a Miu Miu perfume in L’eau Rosee. I would describe this as a fresh scent. It’s a little floral but also a little fruity. And it reminds me of something but I can’t remember what, which is annoying. But if it comes to me I’ll mention it.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your April Play Boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.
Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).
