It’s here, myPlay! by Sephora subscription box has finally arrived. This little guy has been highly anticipated, and not simply because it’s the 3rd installation of Sephora’s new monthly subscription service. For the past 2 weeks I have eagerly tracked the progress of my little bundle of beautifying products as it traveled cross country, all the way from New Jersey to Texas. After a week or of waiting in some cold delivery center en route, I almost thought it wasn’t going to make it, but here it is!

But enough suspense, let’s get to the good stuff. This month’s box includes 5 deluxe samples of items that are sold exclusively at Sephora.

  1. SEPHORA COLLECTION | Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof | $10.00
    An electric blue waterproof eyeliner that goes on smooth and stays all day. I was really pleased with the color and performance of this liner, which I applied to the lower lash line for a bold pop of color.
  2. BUXOM | Full-On™ Lip Cream | $19.00
    I was really excited to try this creamy, mauve lip gloss. Buxom glosses are known to have a plumping effect and no-shimmer finish. I’m not a big gloss girl, but I thoroughly enjoyed the tingling sensation and vanilla aroma that accompanied application.
  3. MAKE UP FOR EVER | Step 1 Skin Equalizer | $36.00
    I can’t wait to add this guy to my beauty routine, for a dose of added hydration while I prime. One of the pros of sample sizes: they’re great for travel. I’ll be sure to take this with me on my trip to New York this New Year’s.
  4. BITE BEAUTY | High Pigment Pencil | $24.00
    I was excited to see if this little lip pencil would live up to all of the hype surrounding the brand. I love a matte lip pencil, and this was no exception, although I’m not certain yet if I adore this any more than my trusted Revlon Matte Lip Balms. I did especially enjoy this plum rose shade.
  5. JOSIE MARAN | 100 percent Pure Argan Oil Light | $48.00
    I’m looking forward to exploring all of the ways that this oil can be used. I was pleased to see such a generous portion, as well. At first test, this formula appeared super light weight and hydrating.

In addition to all of the items above, I also received an itty bitty sample of Stella McCarney’s signature scent. Overall, I was really pleased with the items in this box. For $10 a month, this is a really nice way to try out some items that I would have otherwise looked over for my trusted faves. I love that this box included two lip products, I can never have enough!

So, what do you guys think about this month’s box? Any products that you are in love with? Any products you could do without?
