Play! by Sephora is a $10/month subscription box program. Every month subscribers receive a bag of deluxe samples as well as a Play Pass to redeem in store for free expert advice and 50 extra Beauty Insider points (with any purchase). The six samples are curated from the prestige brands Sephora carries online/in-store. Typically, there are five deluxe samples and a fragrance sample.
Descriptions below are from the box insert; I haven’t had a chance to try most of these products.
Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara (full size 6ml/$30; sample value 3ml/$15) – “Jet-black, kohl-pigmented mascara delivers high-impact volume with a smudge-free formula.” (And lots of hyphenated words!)
Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Always Red (full size 0.169oz/$14; sample value 0.04oz/$3.31) – This “lightweight stain moisturizes while saturating lips with a bold, nonstop shade of crimson red.”
Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer (full size 1oz/$37; sample value 0.16oz/$5.92) – “This silky primer helps makeup last longer while the targeted formula balances skin’s texture, resulting in a smoother, more even look.”
Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray (full size 4oz/$31; sample value 0.5oz/$3.88) – “Weightless setting spray prevents makeup from fading, smudging, and settling into fine lines for a touch-up-free finish.”
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon (sample value $1) – “An intoxicating blend of vanilla bourbon and spice wood with a delicate floral note.” (Notes include: vanilla bourbon, tuberose, oak, and spice notes)
Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo (full size 3.5oz/$23; sample value 0.8oz/$5.26) – This dry shampoo “extends the life of blowouts by absorbing oils, adding body, and leaving hair feeling fresh and clean.”
Box Value: ~$34
