My September PLAY! by SEPHORA subscription box

30 Sep 2016

Hi everyone! Thanks so much for all the lovely messages I received regarding the arrival of our baby girl. 🙂 Very sweet. The last few weeks have been a rollercoaster, as they say, and during this ‘ride’ I did get this month’s PLAY! by SEPHORA in the mail (I have a subscription). Like always I’ll share it with you here. This month’s box has the theme ‘The Unbasic Basics’:

Sharpen your eyeliner and swipe on some lipstick: go back to beauty school this September with a selection of hair, makeup and skincare must-haves that always make the grade.

If this is the first time you’re hearing about PLAY! by SEPHORA: it’s their new subscription box program. Inside each month’s box, which is $10, you’ll find:

• 5 deluxe samples (plus a fragrance bonus) from the same brands Sephora carries in their stores
• A PLAY! BOOK packed with tips and tricks.
• A PLAY! PASS to redeem in-store for a free one-on-one tutorial and 50 bonus Beauty Insider points with any product purchase during the same store visit.
• A cute makeup bag.
• An invitation by email to attend PLAY! DATE, a subscriber meetup held at select Sephora locations across the country.

I still get a lot of questions from readers and friends who are not sure whether this box is ‘worth it’ or not, so below is a detailed breakdown of the contents, which is the PLAY! for SEPHORA box for the month of September.

Not bad, right? Actually, I like this month’s box a lot! The Anastasia BH Brow Gel and Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner are ‘holy grails’ for me, so I’m happy to have these deluxe size for when I’m traveling. Always handy to have!
