November is almost over, but I had to talk about the Play by Sephora subscription box that I signed up for. For $10 a month you will receive different samples of products they carry at Sephora. I thought this was a better deal than Ipsy only because I shop at Sephora a lot and prefer trying out some of their goodies since I know and love so many of the brands they have.

Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil |

I have the “light” version of this, which I like so I’m interested in seeing how this one compares. I love oils, and I rely on them a lot during the winter, so I’m glad there was a sample size of this in the box.

Makeup Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Hydrating Primer |

I’ve heard such good things about the MUFE primers so I was also happy to see this product. So far, it feels really nice, hydrates the skin, and has a nice scent to it.

Buxom Full On Lip Cream in Dolly |

I have two of the Buxom Full On Lip Creams already, but since I’m not a huge gloss fan they’ve been collecting dust in my makeup collection. If you’re a gloss lover, you’ll probably really like these. They leave your lips feeling tingly and they’re pigmented and glossy. I definitely need to start wearing more gloss.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Rhubarb |

I love the High Pigment Pencils from Bite Beauty since they’re very pigmented and glide on beautifully; this shade is a plum rose. I think this will be a beautiful everyday shade for the winter because it’s not too light nor too dark. They’re supposed to have a matte finish, but I think they have a semi-matte finish since they have some creaminess to them.

Sephora Eye Pencil in Electric Blue |

This eye pencil is very creamy and pigmented so it’s perfect for adding a pop of color to the eyes.

Stella McCartney Stella Perfume |

I’m a floral perfume lover and this has rose, amber and peony notes, which is very beautiful. I do kind of wish this was a deluxe sample size, like the ones you can get at Sephora for 100-250 points, instead of just coming in a sample perfume tube, but it is a beautiful scent.

Overall, I’m really excited to receive the Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Rhubarb, MUFE Hydrating Primer, and Josie Maran Argan Oil, and I think $10 is a good deal for this box!

  • You got an amazing box! I’ve been on the waitlist for forever, I want to try this subscription!

    • Aww I hope you get to try it out soon! I had been waiting months as well!

  • This box looks great! The lip cream looks gorgeous. I hope I get off the waitlist soon. I’m dumping Ipsy for them.

    • Haha I think Ipsy will definitely have to up their game if they’re trying to compete with the Sephora box! Hope you get off the wait list soon!

  • The primer sounds like something I would use!!

  • That’s a great subscription! I’ve heard a lot about this primer too, it is one of the products I want to try out.

  • This is a neat subscription! I actually really love Buxom’s lip polishes/creams, I don’t wear lipgloss too often, but when I do, these are my go-to :)

    • They are really nice! I just wish I was more into gloss to really love them. I do prefer these over other glosses for sure.

  • Wow this is an amazing subscription box! I hope we get it in Australia eventually (we JUST got Becca Champagne Pop so we’re always a tad delayed). And how smart of Sephora – this will work in their favour as people will be more likely to purchase full sized items if they get to try them first! xx

    • This will definitely work in their favor! I hope you get it soon and can try it out for yourself!!
