Play! by Sephora: March 2017

Play! by Sephora: March 2017

The award for the lamest Play! by Sephora box goes to the month of March! Let’s get on with it… I guess.

I’ll start with the most exciting item in the box. The Glamglow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer. The brand is appealing to me and I hear nothing but great things. Their packaging is always really colorful and cute. So I’m very excited to see this included in the box this month. This moisturizer is a hydrating, super-charged cream with iridescent illuminating pearl particles to blur, reflect, and enhance your complexion for an instant luminous finish. I received the shade Nude Glow. Sephora has 2 other shades available in Pearl Glow and Sun Glow. I’ll have to properly review this beauty.

I don’t even know what to say about the addition of the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. I mean it is my go-to primer, but it’s really not exciting. And who doesn’t already have about a dozen of these laying around?

The Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter is a champagne cream-to-powder highlighter. And I have about 3 of them in my sample drawer. I’m sure I’m not the only one.

You know what else I have a ton of? Hair oils! I’m sure the Verb Ghost Oil will get some use and I’m kind of digging the packaging. But I would have preferred to see something different included in my box this month.

I haven’t tried a lot of Josie Maran products and I would like to. But I don’t think the Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm would have been my first choice. It’s a skin care finisher and makeup primer in one. It sounds interesting and I’ll definitely give it a try, but it’s not really my kinda thing. I would have loved to see the Argan Enlightenment Illuminizer included instead.

The Atelier Cologne Clémentine California Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume is pretty nice. It has a nice, sweet, citrus scent that I found to be quite refreshing. It’s not something I plan to run out and purchase a full size bottle of, but I will use up the sample.

So there you have it. The least exciting box ever.
