Hello loves! Today we will be discussing the limited edition Sephora play box. I received this box in addition to my regular play box this month so you will be seeing a post on that as well.
Sephora advertised this as a luxury box it retailed for $20 and is not part of the regular Sephora subscription. This box is also no longer Available.It did sell out fast so if you like this concept, next time I would jump on getting one.
To be fully honest I am someone who hates to love luxury products. I hold them to an impeccably high standard, given they are usually outrageous priced. When I first saw this box I was so pumped to get my hands on it I loved the idea of 6 deluxe samples of designer products that I probably would never be able to try otherwise However, I was slightly disappointed in their sample selection I wish that they had chosen samples that are hard to get your hands on instead of some that are overly mass-produced, especially with the price point. Let’s see how the box holds up to my standards.
When I got my box I was drawn to the holographic bag it was beautiful and a nice change from the cloth bags that we usually get. It will easily be reused as a travel friendly makeup bag or a place to store extra products.
The all star edition cards that double as a game was a super cuter touch! Sephora did a great job with making this box feel luxurious and worth the doubel price tag.
DiorShow Mascara: I was disappointed in their choice of this sample it has been on the Sephora point perks options for some time so I feel as if it has been sampled by most people. In terms of the actual product, I am not a fan of this mascara. I find it hard to coat the giant brush with the dry almost mealy mascara formula. Given the brush is so big I am also not a fan of the application process. I feel that the popup packaging causes the product to dry extremely quickly and makes it almost unusable.This mascara retail for $28.50 and comes in brown, black, blue, and purple.
TomFord Lipstick: A Tom Ford baby lipstick?!?! Okay, Sephora I see you stepping up your game! If you want to splurge on a luxury lipstick go no further than Tom Ford at the hefty price tag of $54. It will not disappoint it is creamy beyond words and the packing is top-notch. The fact that this one is a baby one makes it even cuter! The shade chosen will look beautiful on all skin tones and is perfect for late summer, early fall.
SK-II Essence Oh my goodness. I have been told that this product is a holy grail for many but at the price point of $100 for 2.5 oz – $290 for 11 oz I knew it would never be an item that I could manage to splurge on. It is said to quicken your cell renewal and reverse time for aging skin. Given that both of these claims are will long time use I can not state that this product does as promised. However, I can say that it leaves your skin looking instantly refreshed.
Viktor & Rolf Given the crazy amount of size options this perfume is very popular. It smells of fresh flowers mixed with the musk of a woody vanilla. The scent would be beautiful for a romantic night out or just an everyday perfume. The price point starts at $30 for 0.33 oz and up to $215 for 5 oz.
HourGlass Veil Mineral Primer If you are familiar with my blog you already know that this is a favorite and I am always pleased to get a sample. Especially with the price tag of $54 for 1 oz.This primer adds a beautiful layer to build your foundation upon it is not pore filling of silicone feeling in any way which I love! It is moisturizing and light weight with minimal fragrance. I, however, do wish that Sephora had picked a different product, I understand that this product is a cult favorite as well as a luxury product but this product has also been on the Sephora point perks options and been around for some time.
AmorePacific Rejuvenating Creme The final product in our play box. Amorepacific is a newer brand to me, that is part of the Korean skin care movement, I love their moisture facial spray. Their rejuvenating creme is rich and thick with a spa like luxurious feel. The price for this product is $150 for 1.7 oz. personally, I was underwhelmed for the price tag. It does a great job but I do not find this item to be splurge worthy.
All right everyone you made it through to the end! It was a long post this time but it has some much-needed detail. If you got your hands on the all-star box I would love to know your opinion.
