Beauty Box, Sephora Play

Play! by Sephora / Play! Smarts, Glitter Eyes for Real Life


Have I mentioned I love my job 🙂  I’m sure I have in recent posts but this month I am especially feeling the love.  In addition to my $10 Play by Sephora monthly subscription they release specialty boxes here and there.  They are $20, themed and a mystery.  Ohhhh, I love a good surprise but in all serious-ness $20 can be a lot of money for not knowing what your getting so here I am, giving you the deets on the “Glitter Eyes For Real Life” Sephora Play contents.  I am glitterally (get it) elated with the contents.  Lets take a peek of whats in this glitter bag.

Grande Cosmetics – GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum

This award winning lash serum promotes rapid growth with vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants.  Apply right before bed to your upper and lower lash line with included brush (like a liquid eyeliner.)  Make sure all your makeup is off!  This bottle contains enough for a six week supply.  Plenty of time to see longer fuller lashes.





Benefit Cosmetics – BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara

This mascara is newer on the market and I love it! Its ultra lightweight that uses aero-particles derived from space technology to add volume and length without clumping.  You could say this mascara is out of this world!  This long wearing formula is loaded with provitamin B5 to promote natural growth.  The perfect sidekick to your GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum.  *Pro tip – don’t rush to judgement on this mascara on first use.  Make sure you at least use it 5 or more times to aerate the tube for even application.



OLE HENRIKSEN – Banana Bright Eye Creme

If its one skincare brand I am always back to its OLE.  Their TRUTH line is the best by far by brightening and toning the skin to reverse damage.  This brightening eye cream targets fine lines and disguises dark circles with its yellow hue inspired by banana powder.  This eye cream is the perfect base for under-eye concealer and additionally use in the morning and night as part of your skincare routine.




Stila – Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Kitten Karma

This metallic liquid eyeshadow in a peachy champagne shade is packed with silver and copper glitter.  A must have for any MUA’s makeup kit.  This liquid eyeshadow is a true glitter but is water infused letting it dry down quickly for complete control and very minimal fallout.  *Pro tip – if you need to blend this out do it when wet.  Once its dry you don’t want to mess with it  or you will have glitter fall out from it coming apart from its bonding agent.



Bite Beauty – Prismatic Pearl Multi-stick in Rose Pearl

This surprisingly wearable, shimmery multi-stick changes is tone depending on the light and angle.  This stick is a perfect introduction to sparkly lids with its subtle shimmer with an on-trend shade and easy application.  Apply this to your lids, cheeks, lips or high points either directly from the tube or with your finger.  This glitter knows no bounds.






Sephora Collection – Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof in Black Lace

This silky black eyeliner will last up to 12 hours with its water resistant formula.  Being a staple of all kinds this pencils matte finish is the perfect contrast to the glittery goodness in the rest of this swag bag.  Apply this to your lid directly from pencil and smudge with brush or finger.  Black liner is timeless so dress it up or dress it down.  A must have in every kit.
