Makeup Monday: PLAY! by Sephora

I’m pretty sure I was on a waitlist for a year before finally getting this. Was it worth it? I guess so.? Unlike Birchbox and ipsy, it does not personalize your shipment. There was no style quiz. However, the products they sent are pretty bomb, anyway.

One of my favorite things about this, besides the fact that I don’t get hideous makeup bags with it, is that they give you this booklet with lots of information on each product and ideas for using it:

  • Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner ($23)– Truly applies like liquid.  It does not smudge, which was hard for me because I usually blend in my eyeliner, but if you like liquid, this is much easier to apply.
  • bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm in Plumberry Pink ($16) – God, this name is ridiculous. Very oily and glossy.  Extremely bright.  I don’t love it or hate it.
  • Tarte Lights Camera Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara ($21) – Claims to be lengthening, curling, volumizing and conditioning.  I’ll give them lengthening and conditioning.  No volume or curl, though.

  • Tom Ford Black Orchid Perfume ($115) – Very flowery.  A little headache inducing, but not the worst I’ve smelled.
  • Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick in Copper Pink Satin ($20) – I love Make Up For Ever lipsticks.  Creamy, nourishing and buildable – the consistency of a good chapstick.  This color is a little too orange/brown for me, but I do like it.
  • Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder ($27) – Pretty standard dry shampoo.  I like that it’s a powder, not a spray, but the sample size dispenser is a little difficult to use (there’s only 1 hole!).  It’s not heavily perfumed, which is good or bad depending on your preferences.
