Play! by Sephora March 2017 Review – The Gleam Team

This month's Play! by Sephora box seems promising just by the theme alone, which is "The Gleam Team." Lately I have really been into looking on-point with highlighters and looking glowy in general. I am super pumped for this box, and I hope to get some great highlighters in it. I can hear some sort of metal canister rolling around in the box. Let's move on into the March 2017 Play! by Sephora review.

Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast

I am shocked by the size of this deluxe sample! This product sounds like a mix between a dry shampoo, a hairspray, and some sort of volumizer. It claims to provide long-lasting volume for fuller, silkier hair, while doubling as dry shampoo. It can be used after styling for extra hold. You are supposed to part your hair and spray it section by section, while holding the can 10" away from your hair. You can tousle your hair for extra volume. I really do not like hairspray because they tend to be stick and tangle my hair up badly. I have some faith that this is actually a good product.

Glamglow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow

This product functions as a moisturizer, and even as a primer. It is supposed to hydrate, blur, and enhance your complexion. You are supposed to massage it into your face for one minute. The product has a hard to decipher scent, possibly like an orange cupcake. The product itself is a very shimmery nude color.

Benefit Watt's Up! Cream to Powder Highlighter

This highlighter is smooth and provides intense shine. It is golden pink in color. I would say the swatch set about 97%, leaving the slightest tacky feeling. The set swatch does not feel like a powder product. It is to be applied to the usual areas that you highlight, and then blended with a blending sponge.

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Pink

I am very impressed by the swatch of this product! It is extremely creamy and does not drag, and the pigmentation and shimmer is insane. You can definitely use this as a highlighter, in addition to eyeshadow. The color is true to the color name. The swatch blended out easily and fully set. While I am suspicious of cream highlighter because of creasing, this product is waterproof and is not supposed to crease. I really like it!

Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm

This product is very shimmery in the pot. It is supposed to provide a soft-focus luminosity, and can be used as a makeup primer or as the last step in your makeup routine. I can definitely see myself using it as a primer. You are to press it into your skin with your fingers or a blending sponge. The cream is white and has no scent.

Chole eau de parfum  

I really like the blend of lemony-citrus with floral scents happening with this perfume. It is mainly a floral scented perfume, including rose, cherry blossom, lemon essence, and freesia.

I think this Play! by Sephora box lived up to it's name. I am pleased with the products that I received, and am overjoyed that we finally get a break from skincare/skin washing products. I think I will have a lot of fun getting my glow on in the various ways provided. What do you think of this month's samples? Do you use any of these products? Until next time, continue to let your true beauty shine.
