Sephora Play! August 2016 Unboxing

A few days ago I received my August 2016 Sephora Play! subscription box so I thought I’d share it with you all again. In case this is your first time hearing about Sephora Play!, it is a $10 monthly subscription box  of five deluxe-sized beauty products and a fragrance bonus.All products are those you can purchase at Sephora. Here’s what I got in my box:


Here is the box with the iconic Sephora black and white stripes.


Here is what the box look like upon opening.


You get a folded pamphlet with a removable card that you can take into Sephora stores and redeem 50 bonus points with any purchase. The bonus points offer expires at the end of the next month so if you do have these cards, be sure to redeem them in a timely manner! The back of the card also shows the costs of the full-sized versions of the products.


The pamphlet includes descriptions and tips on each of the included products. The cool thing about the pamphlet is that you can scan the images on your phone and you can see more tips, tricks, and videos about each of the products.


This month’s theme was “The Eye Openers.” I really like the play on words “wink outside the box” written across this month’s drawstring cloth pouch. If you read my last month’s unboxing, you’ll know that I didn’t know if I would ever use these drawstring pouches, but I used my last pouch to organize my jewelry as I was moving back to San Jose so I guess I did find a use out of them. If you are subscribed to Sephora Play!, hopefully you will too!


Here are the products I got this month.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12HR Wear Waterproof in Love Affair
Clean Reserve Warm Cotton
Lancome Paris Energie De Vie Smoothing % Glowing Liquid Care Moisturizer
Algenist Eye Renewal Balm
Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow in I-544

When I first saw the shade online, I didn’t think I would like this color personally, but when I applied it to my eyelids, I really liked it! So far I’ve been using it a lot, and judging from the size, it looks like it will last a really long time. It’s also a great size for traveling as it comes in a resealable flat plastic compact.

I hope you enjoyed unboxing my Sephora Play! subscription box with me and I look forward to unboxing with you again next month! Let me know in the comments below: have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts? Are you subscribed to Sephora Play! as well or planning to? If you are subscribed, what did you get in your box this month?

Thanks for tuning in! Have a wonderful day!
