Sephora Play! June Review

My Sephora Play! bag came earlier this week and I’m just getting to it now. I actually had a busy week, come to think of if it. So let’s jump right in to things, shall we?

This month has the usual drawstring bag, last month they switched it up but went back to the usual for June.

The first item we have is First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer

img_3056
Holy moly that’s a long name. It’s a glowing, slightly luminizing primer. I used it yesterday, and I have to say after 4 hours my makeup was splotching between my brows and on my forehead. So it didn’t really make my makeup last. At all. However, as a moisturizer it’s fine, a light coconut scent.
****
Another primer, Benefit The POREfessional.

I’ve used this before, wasn’t my most favorite ever in the world? But it’s decent.
****
Here we have OUAI Rose Gold Hair and Body Oil

img_3073
It contains rose hip oil, shea oil, and absinthium oil. A light rise scent-it was nice in my hair, not heavy and helped smooth it out. Also nice on the skin. It comes in a spray pump, which I like.
****
Next is IGK Rich Kid Coconut Oil Gel

This is supposed to help you get beachy hair, it’s supposed to separate strands for that perfectly tousled bedhead-at-the-beach look. I tried it and it did seem to separate strands, it’s got a fresh scent as well that’s not overpowering.
****
Last but certainly not least is Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade K-Dub.

img_3075
It’s sort of a bright fuschia-pinky color but it’s not garish. I was really looking forward to trying this too, I don’t have any of her liquid lips and I’ve heard good things.

img_3076
I do like it. It’s not streaky, it’s unscented, and it’s nice. I’m just not going to store it next to my Jeffree Star liquid lip 😳😛😱

So that’s it-the June Sephora Play-I’m happy with it, some things I would have normally never tried and some things I wanted to. All in all? Pretty decent!!

May Sephora Play! Review

I got this a few days ago but have been alternating between busy and lazy, so finally here we go. There were a few variations of this subscription that went out, and out of those there was 1 that I REALLLLLY wanted, and guess what? The makeup gods listened.

img_2904
Last month everything came in a drawstring bag, this month is a sturdy plastic envelope type thingy. I like it-it’s different.
*******
First product I grabbed is from Grande Lips, a hydrating lip plumper. It says instant plump within 3-5 minutes, and if you apply it every night before bed your lips will be 15% plumper. Mmhmm. It applies like a Gloss, and feels like menthol on my lips? Not burning-just-tingling maybe. It’s not uncomfortable just weird. My lips look the same too.

img_2905
*****
I really wanted this-Milk Makeup Blur Stick. It’s a matte blurring stick meant to minimize pores and fine lines. Use it as a primer.

img_2906
****
Next is Rahua Omega 9 Hair Mask. You’re supposed to apply to shampooed hair, comb through, and rinse after 10-15 min. It’s got a rare rainforest grown rahua nut oil on it, which supposedly Amazonian tribes have used in their long, luxurious locks. I had received the Marc Anthony Deep Repair Mask in a previous sub and it SUCKED. This one smells like eucalyptus maybe? Not fruity or beach. I can’t put my finger on it.

*****
I wanted this too-Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask. It’s teeny weeny but the glass jar is neat. It’s got French pink clay and pomegranate enzymes. It smells fresh-like the usual face mask smell. It’s so cute! (Translation-small)

img_2908
****
Last, but not least-I didn’t know how much I wanted this until I got it-trèStique Highlight and Multi-Purpose Stick in Maldives Luminescent. It’s a gel highlighter stick in a champagne pink shimmer. I think it’s so pretty-

img_2909
When I saw this I thought ooooo I really want to try that. Here’s a swatch:

img_2910
Isn’t that pretty? It’s not glittery, definitely more of a subtle sheen. I like the pencil application, it’s different.

So that’s my May Sephora Play! bag, I’m super happy with it actually. Thoughts?

Talk Soon Lovelies

Beauty Box Reveals & Neat Ipsy Link

So I figured I’d do a post where you all can show what your subscription beauty boxes had in them for the month. I have a few submissions including what the Amazon “luxury” beauty box has in it. So, since beauty boxes even from the same subscription tend to vary, if you’d like me to post what came in your subscription, email me pics and descriptions.

For you Ipsy subscribers-if you want to be able to select one of your April products for your glam bag, here’s a link to do so. I chose a Tarte liquid lippie this month, and for next a Colourpop Creme Gel eyeliner. Link below:

First, generic213 sent what she got from Ipsy this month:



Her glam bag came with: (the descriptions are her own)

The Balm Bahama Mama-(aka worlds smallest bronzer-the size of my thumbnail) Haven’t tried yet because my face is larger than a Barbie’s face-lame.

Be a Bombshell Lip Gloss in Possessed- nice neutral color, tiny size, weird chemical taste.

MPrincess Pressed eyeshadow in Chestnut-looks darknin tray but goes on as a pretty, light bronze. Excited to try this for a shimmery twist on a smoky eye this summer.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer-I’ve heard great things about this Moisturizer for sensitive skin. It goes on smoothly, feels very lightweight and soaks in immediately. Good summertime moisturizer.

EVA NYC Mane Magic 10-in-1 Primer for Hair- I havent tried yet.
