Blogmas Day Ten: Sephora Play, A Year In Review

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Ten! Today I thought it would be fun to go through the Sephora Play Boxes I’ve received this year and let you guys know what I’m still loving and what I’ve repurchased. I do a monthly favorites, so I won’t be going super in depth for each box. And full disclosure, I haven’t received my December Play Box yet, but I will be doing an unboxing. That being said, let’s get into it.

The first bag I received was February.


This was a great first bag of the year and I genuinely like everything in this bag. The Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Maple has become one of my go to red lipsticks. I will leave a link down below to each post if you guys want more info on each of the products.


March brought a little bit of everything, which I always appreciate. The products that I use the most now out of this bag are the Amika Dry Shampoo, the Nars Bronzer and the Sephora Collection Mascara. I do really like that IT Cosmetics Cleanser, but I used the one I had and just haven’t repurchased yet.


With the April Box came a change in color of the bag and some great products. The Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment in Dream secured itself a place on my nightstand, I actually need to repurchase because mine is almost empty. You guys know how much I love the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream and the Make Up For Ever Primer is great.


The May Box reunited me with a skincare favorite, the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. Gave me a summer skincare favorite, the KORA Organics Noni Glow Face Oil and I got a backup for one of my all time favorite mascaras, Benefit BADgal BANG!


June was another differently colored bag and it was very skincare heavy. The Sephora Collection All Day Hydrator-Hydrate and Glow was one of my absolute favorites during the summer. The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer made itself back into the front of my primer drawer and since June you guys have seen how much I love the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla.


In July I added to my always growing Bite Beauty collection in my lipstick drawer with the Matte Cream Lip Crayon in Glace, when I received this I already had this exact one but it was basically empty so I was happy to see this because this is one of my favorite shades. The Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Eau So Sweet made it’s way onto my fragrance shelf, the OG Daisy is one of my all time favorite scents, but the whole Daisy collection is so nice.


The August Box was great, I loved the color of the bag and it was full of great products. Most of which I’m still using.


September was another fantastic bag. This is yet another month where I’m still using and loving everything in the bag. And it was a good mix of skincare and makeup products.


In October I received a mini of one of my all time favorite, holy grail products, the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. I keep this one in my handbag makeup bag and it’s a great size to carry around. I was given another of the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer, also kept in my handbag makeup bag. And I think this is one of the first times this Sephora Play year that I’ve had genuine product disappointment. I was so excited to try the WASO: Clear Mega-Hydrating Moisturizer and I did really like the feel of it when I put it on initially but there was something in there my skin did not like and it broke me out. But one good thing about Sephora Play is along with finding things you love, you get to try new products and not like them without paying full price for them.


The November box was honestly amazing. I so love everything in here and the bag itself is a lovely purple. I’m wearing three of these products right now actually, the Glamglow Glamstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer, Lancôme Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Mascara and Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium perfume. It’s all so good.

That about wraps it up for this post, Sephora has sent me a ton of amazing products this year. I love how they switched up the color of the bags and I’m excited to see what’s in my December Box. If any of you guys were doing Play this year I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, Sephora Play was and is definitely worth it and I’m excited to continue next year :).
