Sephora Play! Box | August

Welp, you know what they say – better late than never!

Yeah I am a little late on this month’s box since it’s almost over, but I mean, it’s not September yet so I’m still technically on time…right?

This month’s play box was all about The Eye Openers – everything you need for your eyes to look their absolute best! And let me tell you, I am all about this month’s theme cause my eyes def need some TLC.

Eye openers

Here’s what I got:

  • MUFE Artist Shadow in I-544 – OMG this color is sooo perfect for those transitional fall looks. I love the deep purple/brown granite shade and I really like the pink pigment in it as well! The color is extremely saturated and opaque so a little goes a long way!

  • Urban Decay Perversion Mascara – With the slogan of, “Bigger. Blacker. Badder.” I was expecting this va-va-voom mascara to make my lashes look bad ass, and well, I was slightly disappointed. If you guys have been following me since the beginning, y’all know I love my rubber bristle spiky mascara brushes so I mean, maybe I’m just biased and I wasn’t really feeling this one. I will say that my lashes look nice and long – definitely no issues in the length department, but I wanted more volume and thickness!


Please don’t mind my messy application
  • Clean Reserve Dry Cotton – This perfume straight up smells like the freshest cleanest laundry I have ever smelled in all my 26 years of life. Like, it legit smells like cotton linens. This says it’s a perfume but man, I’m going to use it as a room spray, clothes spray, sneaker spray, car spray, an everything spray. It smells so fresh and so clean, clean. I’m just not gonna wear it directly on my body,haha.
  • Lancome Energie de Vie Smoothing & Glowing Liquid Care Moisturizer – Even though I have shiny, oily skin, I really liked this to make my skin feel quenched and hydrated. It’s more of a gel consistency and color, but it is marked as a liquid lotion – so it’s not as thick as a moisturizer, but it’s also not as light as an essence. My face felt nice and glowy after using it!
  •  Algenist Eye Renewal Balm – This is probably my favorite thing in the box! This eye cream is so hydrating, it pretty much lasts all day. No one really wears makeup at my job, so I have gotten braver with not wearing it everyday and so I just apply this under my eyes in the morning and I swear by the time I get home from work, I can feel like balm still there keeping my under-eyes less puffy and dark.
  • Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12 HR Wear Waterproof Eyeliner in Love Affair – This impressed me a lot because as soon as I swatched it, I ran my finger over it to see if it would smear and it actually didn’t! This color matched the eyeshade very well and it’s such a nice deep purple shade. Unfortunately, all dark liners look black on me so you won’t really be able to see the color, but I will use this nonetheless.

That’s all I got in my August box! This is only my second Play! box and I have to say that I am loving it so far! I am definitely looking forward to next month’s box!

Thank you so much for reading! Please be sure to like, comment, and follow if you enjoyed!

    I’m thinking of signing up for the Sephora play box this month. I got a sample of the perversion mascara last year for my birthday gift from sephora and I loved it. I felt like it gave me lots of volume but I’m sure it’s different for everyone. Would love for you to check out my blog!! I enjoy reading your reviews πŸ™‚
