This has to be the best box I have received ever! That says a lot because I have been subscribed to various over the past years.

Here is my first impression of these products I received as listed below;

  1. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
  2. Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 01
  3. DryBar Detox Dry Shampoo
  4. Makeup Forever Step 1 Equalizer Primer
  5. Lancôme Hypnose Drama Mascara

The UD setting spray is a tried and true favorite. I appreciate this 0.5 oz size because it is perfect for travel. Same for the Detox Dry Shampoo. I am going to Oakland next month for a few nights and plan on carrying on, so this will come in handy just for that trip. #GirlsWeekend !!!!

Last month I purchased the Tarteist Lip Paint in Bae (red) and was very disappointed with the way it wore. I got very excited when I saw this red Sephora Cream Lipstain. I own one of these in the shade #12 and find to wear beautifully through out the day. I didn’t get to do a proper wear test of the red due to my cold.  Iw as wiping my nose all day and I was afraid of smearing red everywhere and staining my mouth. But the color is gorgeous as you will see below!

The Makeup Forever primer made this box. It’s a primer I have been wanting to try as many YouTuber’s have hyped it up. It is very spendy, so thank you Play! for including it this month. This has a slight tint that sheers out upon application.

The Lancôme mascara was a great perk. You guys know how I prefer my drugstore mascara price and performance, I will enjoy playing with this guy and testing it against my favorite trusty mascaras. I layered two coats of this stuff on my lashes and came to like it a lot. The curvy wand is more practical than gimmicky giving me length and separation.

To round out my look, I decided to play with two new additional products; IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer and the Two Faced White Chocolate Chip palette. This concealer is thick and very illuminating. It does blend with with a beauty blender. I did set with powder, which we all know powder does tone down luminosity.
When I received this palette, I immediately took to Instagram to post my disappointment. The colors look very pretty, but the payoff is either very light or a glittery mess. I would have returned it this past weekend however I was too sick to battle the mall. I am not sure if I am keeping it or returning it.

Each Play! box does come with a perfume. I cannot wear perfume because of my allergies. I wait to collect several and then give them to my mom.

This is me bare faced and fighting a viral infection. Lovely isn’t it.

 

Primed with the Makeup Forever Primer. Applied the Maybelline Matte + Poreless Foundation in 220. Blended with my Beauty Blended then added on the IT Cosmetics Under Eye Concealer.

The IT Cosmetics is much thicker than the UD one, but much more brightening. On a sick day like today I will take it!

Finished look. Love the mascara, just not the price. The red Sephora Cream Lip Stain is a beautiful classic red.
