Swatches: SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Shine Lipstick, Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

This month’s Play! by Sephora is pretty good. I wouldn’t say it’s an exciting one, but I did receive items I’ll definitely get use out of. Let’s dig in!

I’ve really been getting into hair care lately. Especially since I color it so often. So I’ve been getting more excited over new to me hair care products. The Living Proof Perfect Hair Day® Night Cap Overnight Perfector sounds pretty good. You apply it to your hair (wet or dry) before bed and either wash it out or style it in the morning. It’s said to last through 5 shampoos while providing shiny, vibrant, more manageable hair. I’ll definitely report back on this.

I’ve heard so much about Ole Henriksen, but haven’t tried anything from the brand yet. I’m pretty excited to try the Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation®. It’s an oil-free moisturizer with multi-fruit AHA complex which is said to help even skintone and smooth the skin’s texture. The sample size is rather small, but I’m sure I’ll be able to get at least a few uses out of it. It doesn’t really have a scent which is already good news to me!

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel is also new to me. It’s a clear brow gel that sets and holds brows in place. It’s not the most exciting item, but I’ll totally get use out of it.

I also received the SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Shine Lipstick in the shade Love Spell. It’s a really pretty pink shade, but if I’m being honest it’s not a shade I would have chosen for myself. The sample size is super small and I didn’t detect a scent. I’ll work it into a look later on this week.

I was pretty excited to see the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in the box. It’s my go-to eyeliner and having a sample size will totally come in handy. I’m not sure what more to say about it. It’s very easy to work with and always applies evenly. The fine tip allows for precise lining. I love it!

Last we have the fragrance sample. This month it’s Atelier Cologne Collection Azur – Sud Magnolia. It’s a pretty strong scent. I mostly detect rose. I actually like the smell of rose, but this is just way too strong of a floral scent for my liking. It’s really pretty though so I’ll definitely hold onto it. I’ll just be sure to apply the tiniest amount.

Overall it’s a pretty great box and I’m satisfied with the products I received. I would like a little more excitement though.

I wanted to make note of something. I’m going to be making a few changes around here. Usually when I haul stuff I break reviews up so that I focus on one item at a time. I know not many people do that, but that’s how I like doing things. I like to take my time and focus on one item at a time while keeping posts short and to the point. Even if it does seem long and drawn out. But I have to put an end to that because at this rate the new stuff I just purchased won’t be posted until next year! I’ve got a few individual reviews set to post over the next few weeks, but after that I will start bunching them. I just wanted to mention it before you started seeing longer more photo-heavy posts.
