Bumble and Bumble don’t blow it: SUPER excited to try this – as It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for, in regards to my hair!

Sephora Play!


Last year, about the time I started having issues with my IPSY subscription, and started considering cancelling it (which I did do, last August.) Sephora announced their very own subscription service! I was super excited, and put my name on the waitlist immediately.

I got an email about a month (maybe more) ago that Sephora’s subscription service is now available in our area!

This post is about my very first box from Sephora Play!

Disclaimer: I am not paid or sponsored by any of the companies listed in this post. This is just a review/un-boxing for entertainment purposes only!

Lets jump into the unboxing! The box itself is super cute!

As you can tell – I obviously blurred out my address and such. When you first open the box you’re greeted with box/Sephora related paperwork.

Each month has a theme, and this mont’s theme is the forces of nature. It also includes an in-store bonus. This is the Play pass, which if you bring it into the store you get an extra 50 beauty insider points, with any purchase. Which is pretty cool — though I’m not sure what the points are for at this moment.

A booklet with each product, and an explanation is also included. I’ve included a photo of this months below.

Now lets get to the good stuff!

Not pictured: Tarte lip crayon.

how cute is the bag that it came with? I love it!

Each box comes with a fragrance, this month was Orange Sanguine. It came with a super cute postcard!

Also in my box was Amuse Bouche in Kimchi by Bite Beauty. I have pretty fair skin, but it has a rosy tone to it, and lip colors are usually pretty tricky for me — but I think this one is pretty cute!

My box also had Origins Maskimizer + drink up & clear improvement masks. I’m pretty excited to try these out!

This month’s box was big on skincare – which is okay with me! It also had Korres Wild Rose sleeping facial. Which I’m not sure how I’ll feel about that, as I can’t usually sleep with scented things because I always wake up with a sore throat…

Finally, Briogeo don’t despair, repair! Deep conditioning mask… for your hair of course! as someone who struggles with her hair, I’m super excited for this too!

Month #1 down, and so far even better than Ipsy was. For $10 I’d say this is by far better than ipsy… but I can’t be certain until I’ve had it a couple months 😉

Do you have a favorite subscription service? Do you like reading this? Let me know! I still get Julep – but stopped posting because life got busy. I know I gained many more readers once I started posting these, so I’d be interested in knowing if anyone is still interested!

June IPSY!


My June IPSY came today! I’ve been really excited because it came with a super cute and fun eyeliner! I have to say this was the best month thus far! I’m really pleased with what came!

IMG_9162

I was happy it was the only thing that came in the mail today! Nothing better than fun mail! As you can see it came already opened but nothing was missing or damaged so I’m not too worried about it.

IMG_9163

LOVE the zipper to the bag for this month! So fun and colorful!

IMG_9164

So excited for all the items this month!

IMG_9165

First up, Pure Vanilla scented “The Healthy Body Butter” I’ve already used this, and LOVE it. The smell is light, and the lotion itself is light and great on my sensitive skin!

IMG_9166

Next, Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. Not sure I’ll ever need this, I use Mary Kay CC Cream and LOVE it.

IMG_9168

Next, treStique crayon shadow. I tested this on my hand and LOVE it. Even though it’s boring brown (I have so many brown shadows I don’t know what to do with them!)  It’s really smooth and blends well. I’m excited to really try it out!

IMG_9169

Next… My favorite! Ofra eyeliner. Look at that color! My iphone doesn’t do justice to the color, it’s a beautiful teal and I can’t wait for an excuse to wear it!

IMG_9171

Finally.. The worlds smallest nail-polish. This photo did a cruddy job. It’s a coral pink and it’s so perfect for me, but it’s so tiny it’s probably only good for one use 😦

APRIL IPSY


My April ipsy showed up today! So here is the post I promised after getting my Julep Maven box.

IMG_7423

So today my April ipsy bag came… I knew what was going to be in it ahead of time because they give you a sneak peak. Before I go into my personal opinion/thoughts on the bag, heres a photo of everything together.

IMG_7424

Starting with the Jor’el Parker Femina perfume. It smells nice, it isn’t by any means a bad smell… but it does have a hint of “old lady” to it… which is a little off-putting… but I could totally (and probably will) wear it to the next fancy outing we have.

IMG_7428

Next up, Hey Honey. I am MOST excited about this. I am really faithful to my MaryKay lotion but I love products made with honey/beeswax. (Hello Burts Bees!) So I’m really excited to see how this works for my skin!

IMG_7429

Next up is Hikari blush. I do not, have not and probably will not ever use blush. If you’ve ever seen any photos of me, I have naturally rosy cheeks… always have. I was going to trade it with someone online — but the box came with this nasty residue on it so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do that.

IMG_7430 IMG_7432

Next is the Nude Dude eyeshadow – Fit. I have so many brown eye shadows, I know I typically were natural looking make-up… but the reason I signed up for ipsy was to step outside my comfort zone… but I won’t complain over a new shadow 😀

IMG_7434

Finally is the lip gloss. I’m not sure how I feel about this particular color, but I’m curious to try it and see how it works. Mitchell said he liked it, but we’ll see how it looks on me, hopefully I’ll remember and I can post a photo whenever that happens. 😀
