Sephora Play Review
So Sephora Play September wasn’t all that! Well, at least the products I received wasn’t. It’s great trying out new products, however these were blah! blah! for me.
I was highly unimpressed, so much so I skipped October Play Box! Yes! Unfortunately that was a mistake since October Play seemed good from the reviews. SMH Sephora! If you missed August review check it out here here. Now moving on to the products.
What Was Used From My Sephora Play Bag
Every product in my Sephora Play bag was used, however none was really worth the effort. The bag itself was cute though. I guess they compensated by using a pink satin bag instead of the rough bag they usually use. So thumbs up for a pink satin bag! – it was appreciated.
Ciate London Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick in Pin Up
The Ciate London Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick formula was so disappointing. Great color but the liquid lipstick got EVERYWHERE! I was expecting it to dried down fully to matte finish but it didn’t. Instead, it transferred like crazy! That’s just a no. The name of the product is really deceiving because it’s really not a matte liquid lipstick – these companies play too much! Great color but this liquid lipstick is not matte!
Metallist Liquid Foil and Glitter Eye Shadow Duo in Talia
This one was just another no. Whose idea was it to use big chunks of glitter in a product that goes on people’s eyelids? The fall-out was a nightmare as a result after a few minutes I just washed it off. While the liquid acted as a primer and helped intensify the color of the eyeshadow glitter it did nothing to keep the glitter on the eyelids – absolutely nada!
Herbivore Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask
Herbivore Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask smell was off-putting, so I only used this once – I just could not bare the smell to use this again. Plus, I didn’t observe any great changes in my skin that convinced me to use this product again. However, the reviews on this product is fantastic on Sephora [see here] so who knows it might be worth it but just not for me.
Belif The True Cream Bomb
This did not work out for me. It was heavy and greasy on my skin, so if you have oily skin proceed with caution by getting a sample of this before you shell-out the cash for this because it’s not cheap.
Sephora Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof
This too was unnecessary for me. I don’t buy liners I have to sharpen, because I feel it’s a waste of product. However, the formula is creamy and easy to apply. I can’t comment on the 12HR wear time because I never had it on for so long but saying it’s waterproof is reaching!
Quai Repair Shampoo and Conditioner
I am searching for a new shampoo and conditioner for my natural hair so I was excited to try this, but there was barely enough product in there to wash my hair. As a company if you’re going to engaging in giving samples at least do it well – put enough product in the sample SMH. Anyway, the product smelled okay but it’s not suited for my hair type. While the shampoo didn’t strip my hair the hair conditioner didn’t give any slip.
Recommendations From Sephora Play Box
Absolutely nothing! So here you have it – this bag was disappointing. I have November Play Box so hopefully the post will be up in the next few days. The products seem better this time around. I am just hoping the their quality don’t disappoint.
Have you tried any of these products? How was it?
