Play! by Sephora October 2016 Review – The Cool Cut

Friday, October 21, 2016
Woohoo, the October Play! by Sephora box has arrived! This month's theme is "The Cool Cut," featuring new products that are expected to take the world by storm. I have no idea what to expect with this theme, and it has me curious! Time to open the box.


Another cute bag as always. Maybe there will be lip products inside?



Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil

My hair could totally use a product like this, since it is freshly bleached. This product claims that it strengthens and enhances the color and shine of your hair. You apply it after shampooing, lather it from roots to ends, and then wash it out. I think this product is pretty neat and the sample size is generous. It smells almost like baby powder and is an off-white lotion-like product.

Skin Inc. Pure Revival Peel

I was immediately freaked out when I saw the word "peel," but no where in the description or instructions is peeling mentioned. Needless to say, I think it is safe to use. This product exfoliates by removing dead skin to renew complexion. You apply it to your dry face, allow it to sit for a few seconds, massage it in circular motions, and then rinse. It is a clear liquid with no apparent smell. I will try it, but I do not think the sample size is large enough to see real results.

Smashbox Always on Matte Liquid Lipstick in Driver's Seat

I absolutely love matte lips, liquid lip color, and this color in general! I am always buying and wearing lip colors similar to this shade. The swatch dried completely matte quickly. It is very smooth and pigmented. I know fore sure I will get use out of this.

Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb


This is a facial cream intended to tighten the skin, while smoothing it for a supple feel. There are many things you can do with it. I will probably go the route of a light application for moisturizing effects. It can also be applied heavily as a 5-minute mask and then wiped off, or over top of makeup for moisturizing benefits. It is a light blue shade and smells fresh and clean, almost reminiscent of hand sanitizer.

Blinc Mascara Amplified in Black

I had no idea what this product was when I pulled it out of the bag, but it is indeed the most unique product this month. The dual packaging is just so different. It is a mascara that forms a water-resistant tube around each eyelash, until you go to wash it off. Interestingly enough, it is water-based. This new technology is very intriguing to me and I cannot wait to see what it is all about on my face.

Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris

Wow, this perfume smells really pretty! It is a mix of fruits and florals, including bergamot, pear, raspberry, strawberry, jasmine, and more. I will be using this bad boy very soon.

We have reached the end of the Play! by Sephora October box. I did not find it as thrilling as the past boxes, but that mascara and matte liquid lipstick are huge hits for me. Nevertheless, I look forward to the next box. Have you tried any of these products? Are you a subscriber to this box? I want to chat with you in the comments.
