Blinc | Mascara Amplified 

Full size | $26.00

The first product to kick off my Play! by Sephora October 2016 Subscription Box Review, is an item that tends to be featured in many beauty subscriptions and that’s a good mascara, and  for this month the Play by Sephora bag will include for some subscribers the Blinc Amplified mascara in a classic black. Blinc Amplified Mascara features what the brand calls ” innovative technology” that  leaves one’s lashes coated with easy-to-remove, mirco water-resistant tubes that is promised by the brand will not run, flake or smudge.

The next product that we will be looking at is by the brand Belif and it’s their True Cream Aqua Bomb. This is a lightweight gel-cream, that works to provide the wearer with skin that is firmer, and is formulated to sink into one’s skin instead of  just sitting on top without absorbing properly. True Cream Aqua Bomb also works to help skin become smoother and have a more supple feel.

Full size | $24.00

Another makeup item that is featured in my October Play! by Sephora  bag is the Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in the pretty fall color Driver’s Seat. The color is a warm almost copper cinnamon burnt rose-pink with specks of gold color infused. This is a water-resistant matte lipstick that the wearer can count on sticking around for eight hours of color staying power as promised by the brand.


Yves Saint Laurent | Mon Paris Parfum

Full size | $92.00 -$122.00

The next item to land into my bag is a parfum by the legendary brand Yves Saint Laurent, and it’s their Mon Paris. If you are one that likes things sweet with a splash of floral, then Mon Paris is right up your alley.  Mon Paris is a perfume drawn on romantic influence and driven by sophistication. The fragrance notes in Mon Paris includes  Bergamot, raspberry, pear, jasmine, citrus blossom, white datura, strawberry, musk, patchouli and ambroxan.


Skin INC. | Pure Revival Peel

Full size | $55.00

And the product to wrap up my Play! by Sephora October 2016 Subscription Box Review, is the Pure Revival Peel by the brand Skin Inc. This is as the brand puts it a more advanced non-abrasive peel that works to gently scrub away dead skin cells, and ultimately reveals skin that is radiant, smoother and appears refreshed and renewed. One ingredient that is present in Skin Inc.’s  Pure Revival Peel is AC-11 and it comes from cat’s claw, which is a tropical vine that can be found in the Amazon Rainforest, and having this ingredient in this peel helps with protecting the skin from sun as well as environmental damages to the skin. Cat claw also gives one a more gentle exfoliation experience.

And those where all the products featured in this month’s Play! by Sephora Bag. I am absolutely looking forward to putting every single one of these products to the test. I thought that Sephora definitely delivered a great bag,  that contains a lot of new beauty brand finds for me. I am especially looking forward to trying out the Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil. I love hair masks, and this one smells particularly good, it has a perfume fragrance that I really like.  So for more information about any of these products featured in my Play! by Sephora  October 2016 Subscription Box Review, or to get in on the beauty subscription fun see direct links below.
