  1. I am EXTREMELY disappointed in my Sephora Play this month.

    I got box #451.

    GlamGlow – “Glowstarter” illuminating moisturizer – o.24 oz
    Verb – “Ghost Oil” – 0.57 oz
    Urban Decay – Vice Lipstick in “Big Bang” – 0.03oz (WHICH WAS BROKEN WHEN I OPENED THE PACKAGE)
    Josie Maran – “Surreal Skin Aragan Finishing Balm” – 0.1 oz
    Becca – Shimmering Skin Perfecter – 0.34oz
    Atelier Cologne – “Clementine California” – glass perfume sampler with stopper

    • Hey! Since you hate your stuff, I would LOVE to relieve you of the Becca! I am most jealous of the boxes that got Becca and Algenist, haha. Also, you should contact customer service for the broken lipstick! They’ll either give you a refund, a new product, a bunch of points or in some cases a new box. 🙂

  2. Just got Box# 469

    GLAMGLOW GLOWSTARTER in Nude Glow – This smells really good! I’m personally not much of a Luminizing Queen as I am a Matte Queen. Probably will use this as a normal hand lotion since it smells good and not as it’s intended use as a face cream.

    Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion – This is going to my sister in law, I’ve tried this before and it broke up my shadow.

    VERB Ghost Oil – Oh! This is scented beautifully ! Hints of floral ans sweet (if you’re into that, I am) Might get a full size! (I have bleached ends for my ombre hair and this was a great little pick me up!)

    Benefit Watt’s Up Cream to Powder Highlighter – I actually love this as a brow highlight on my skin tone so I’m very happy with this.

    Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm – It looks like it has some blue iridescence to it? But it doesn’t translate to the skin.. Not sure how I feel yet.

    Atelier Cologne- oooh, this smells nice. Not sure if I would get a full size though.

  3. I’m getting 469 and willing to swap the UD primer for the Living Proof product or the Bobbi Brown stick.
    I also have a whole bunch of other UD samples (e.g. all nighter spray, lip products, mascara, concealer, foundation, etc.) and are willing to include some of them as well if anyone is interested in swapping.

    • I have my living proof up for swap! Are you on the swap site here?

      • No, I’m pretty new to this site. Do you want me to? I’ll try figure out how it works. My play box is just mailed out today though, so I’m expecting it to arrive by the end of this week and I can send it to you as soon as I get it.

        • I’m still waiting on mine too. The swap site usually has a waitlist but I got off in a few days. I’ve been able to trade for sooo much good stuff that I love!

    • If your UD primer and other UD samples are up for swap for the shadow stick, I’m willing to swap.

      • I just listed it up at the swap site

  4. I got 469 and I’m excited about everything! Highlight/glow is my favorite makeup. 🙂

    As for the Atelier Cologne… WHICH Atelier Cologne is it? :O

  5. Great, my 444 came today and it’s missing the Glamglow and the Chloe perfume…anyone else missing items?

    • I got the same box and am missing the Josie Maran

      • You’re not missing much with the Josie Maran. Mine was about a third full and it was a small sample to begin with.

        • I got my josie maran but it looked disgusting, I didn’t even bother to open it. The product inside was like a wet lump that slid around in the container. Anyone else have that problem ?

          • Yes, mine looked like curdled cream.

  6. Does anyone know what Box # 451 is gonna look like??

    • Just got it this morning! It has the Josie Maran balm, the Verb ghost oil, the glamglow glowstarter, Becca shimmering skin perfector in opal, and urban decay vice lipstick in big bang. Atelier Cologne in divine Clementine.

      • Yay great box that’s mine 451 but my doesn’t even show tracking just says in progress what does that mean?

      • OMG I love you! I haven’t gotten mine yet… and I was PRAYING I wouldn’t get WATTS UP!!!

  7. Wish I got #469 to try that ghost oil~! xP I have #477. Excited about the glamglow moisturizer. I love it~ It’s one of my favorites~ 🙂

    • I’m getting 469. Let me know if you would want to swap.

    • Would you be willing to trade some items? I have 469 and not really looking forward to the ghost oil, I’d love the algenist drops!!

  8. Guess I’m getting a different variant… I’m 451

  9. Getting box 469, not impressed 😐

  10. I wanted the shadow stick. Getting 469. 🙁

  11. 🎉🎉gettin 444! Very happy as usual just wish they would ship already and also wish like others the eyeshadow stick was a darker color

    • The color in the picture looks like a dark brown, do you know the name of the color they are sending? I was curious about that.

      • I just got mine today its goden pink. Its beautiful everything in box def has glow to it. Not sure how to use the Josie maran finishing balm,it has beautiful irradecence.i got my box today which i was surprised i haven’t even recieved shipping email

  12. I have Benefit Watts Up & the Glamglow up for swap if anyone is interested. Just click my name & it will take you to my swap page

  13. Ugh. I’m getting 469. I absolutely hate UD eyeshadow primer. I have oily lids and it does absolutely nothing for me. It can’t keep my eyeshadow in place if the brand depended on it.

    • Me too. I hate it and have so much of it and that’s what I am getting. I really wanted to eye shadow stick and that’s the one thing I am not getting 🙁

      • Hey! I’m getting 444 with the shadow stick and I really don’t like Bobbi Brown. I’ve been wanting to try the Urban Decay primer potion forever. Any chance you’d want to swap?

        • Sure! I have never done a swap, how does it work?

    • Try setting your primer with powder. A lot of people do this, not just with this primer, in order to further smooth the eyelids.

      • I’ve tried that before, but I typically set it with a skin tones eyeshadow. I saw a Bag on YouTube do it and I liked the result better. Anyways anything input on top of urban decays primer just slides around and I get eyeshadow right under my brow. It’s weird because I’ve never had this issue with any other primer, but I know it’s not one bad tube because I’ve gotten numerous samples and I’ve tried them all and no luck

  14. about to get glow with my 4,6,9 box

  15. The Bobbi Brown cream shadow stick in #444 is Golden Pink. It is a really pretty color.

    • Ugh, wish it was a bolder color. That color will not show up on my Italian olive skin. Oh well. The rest of the box looks great, though. Thanks for the information!

      • It might work for you. It has really nice pigment and it gets darker the more you layer it.

        • I SO wanted that eye shadow stick 🙁 I am not getting it 🙁

          • I’m getting the shadow stick. I’m willing to trade for the Urban Decay Primer.

          • I’ll trade with you. I even have a full size UD primer. It’s new but not in the box. I’d gladly give you that too.

  16. I’m getting 477.

    I always seem to be getting boxes where I have to wait FOREVER, for any spoilers.

    That’s just mean. LOL.

    • at least 477 is up now! i’m still waiting on 451 :/

      • Me too!

  17. This is my first month and it looks like I’m getting 469. I have to say that I’m thrilled. With the exception of the highlighter probably being too dark for me (after reading reviews of the product), I’m can’t wait to try everything else. I already use this eye primer so I’m thrilled to be getting more. I just wish they would hurry up and ship it!

  18. BTW the theme is the “gleam team” not the glam team

  19. Okay im 469 and im pretty sad im not getting that living proof product, looks like Ill have to buy a volumizing spray now…I assume everyone here is beauty obsessed, anyone have any good recommendations?

    • I’m getting it and putting it up for swap.

  20. I have box 469. Is the Urban Decay potion primer the 5 ml mini?

  21. I have everything in my box except one item. Boo

  22. So glad I cancelled. I will keep my glossy and allure and be happy!

  23. Love anything by Josie Maran.

  24. I have #469 and I’m really excited! I have a ton of dry shampoo samples to get through (barely use it since I wash my hair every day) and dry/frizzy/coarse hair so I’m excited for the hair oil.

    Everything else looks great and I’m actually glad I’m not getting the Bobbi Brown eyeshadow because I find eyeshadow palettes easier to use, even though I’m sure it’s a great product. Yay!

  25. Out of all the YEARS I was with Birchbox I’ve never been as excited about samples as I am my FIRST box with Sephora Play. This looks promising.

  26. Hate, hate, hate this latest variation!! If I get any kind of oil, primer, mascara instead of the Bobbi Brown I’m done with Sephora. I’ve been with play since the first box.

    • Which box did you get? If it was 451 or 477 I would love to relieve you of the Becca or Algenist!

  27. I am 469 and I’m so happy!! I really didn’t want the living proof! Love alteliar- my favorite brand to get samples from!

  28. Wooohoo!! No lip products for once.
    I know I’ll us everything in my box #469. This is like sample heaven for me. Face primer, eyeshadow primer, moisturizer && a highlighter I haven’t used since high school??

    I’ve been running low on ALL these items!!!!!!! Yay!!!!! 😀

  29. Just cancelled – these guys can’t hold a candle to Ipsy IMHO.

    • I’ve had Ipsy and Play for the same amount of time, and I’ve hated every Ipsy box so far. I’ve thought of canceling, but I don’t want to miss out on any potential good boxes haha.

  30. I’m getting 469! I’m excited about the Atelier cologne lol, it’s my favorite. The only thing I’m not excited about is the ghost oil, and only because I don’t use hair oils.

  31. the girl with the TBD box just posted her box is #469

    • Thanks! Just updated!

  32. The second one is 469 :/ not excited since this is my box

  33. my box is 444, kinda bummed that its sooooo makeup heavy. This is my first month, thought i’d try it out for my birthday month but this will definitely be my last month. Just not for me.

    • Jess if I were you I would seriously give it 1 more month. Have you done your Profile on Sephora yet? I was just wondering because you can put in what kind of skin tone you are .. what colors you like ect? They do send you things based on your Profile. If you haven’t go do it & I bet next month you will love it! With a Sub box tho I wouldn’t base your decision off of one month. I’m not at all affiliated with Sephora but until I did my Profile the same happened to me. 🙂

      • i have gotten every box since day 1 for myself and my daughter. The boxes are often completely inappropriate for the profile.

        • I find that as well. I loved this box before there where different boxes.

      • I did do my profile, I think this box may just be a bit more makeup heavy then I want. I don’t mind 1-2 makeup items but 4/6 is just too much for me as I wear very little (I love hair and skin care most). Just thought I’d try it out for my birthday. Ipsy and allure are definitely a better fit for me. Thanks for the info though!

        • You would love glossybox they do lots of skin care

      • I think it’s great that you are receiving more items that fit your profile! That has not been my experience though. Getting box 469, and do not need two more heavy moisturizers for my oily skin! Happy to try the hair oil though I have tons of those already.

        • Interesting. have consistently received boxes that fit my profile, too. I am getting 469 and I have dry skin!

  34. My Box is 477 I can’t wait to see what we get! So excited! Next to my Rachel Zoe box this is my other favorite!

    • I posted my 477 box on my instagram 🙂 @_cupofdee

      • Thank you for the picture. 🙂 I usually have to wait forever for spoilers for my Sephora box.

        Gave you a follow too. 🙂

      • What’s in it? I don’t have IG

  35. It’s the three numbers the beginning or at the end of the order number ?

    • At the end.

  36. Yay, 444 is my box ☺️ I’m excited to try all of it, but esp the GlamGlow!

  37. I’m #451 so hoping to find out soon what’s in it.

    • That’s my box number too. I hope it’s not the box with Ghost oil and UD primer. I won’t use either of those.

      • I actually like the Verb ghost oil and seem to have lost mine (I got it from a Sephora Favorites kit). I’m not huge on hair oils, but I think this one is worth trying. The product on Sephora’s website has a video about how they recommend you use it. Just thought I’d mention in case anyone’s disappointed to get it.

        • I like the Verb oil too! (and I’m pretty anti all oils…)

          I got a sample in an Ipsy bag.

      • I think we’ll probably get the Verb oil, because most people getting this box listed frizzy hair as a concern, plus two boxes got the other hair item, so it makes sense that two boxes will also get the Verb one. I also saw a bit of a spoiler from a Sephora email that mentioned Becca, so I think one of our items might be some kind of Becca luminizer.

    • Same here! Hoping for good things!

    • I’m curious to see what is in our box!!

    • my box is 451 also

    • I’m 451 too

    • I hope we get something similar to the first two boxes. I’ve been wanting to try living proof products, so I hope we get that.

    • I wanted the shadow stick, but maybe we’ll get it. Isn’t Makeup Forever I-544 the same color we got before? The shadow stick color looks a lot like the Laura Mercier color we got. But I can see why Bobbi Brown would pick that one to send – seems like it would have broad appeal. I love the Laura Mercier one! I wanted the Josie Marian also. It will be sad (for me) if we don’t get either one.

      • The Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier are very similar, BB is warmer, LM is pinker. The Josie Maran sample was very disappointing. A third full and looked like curdled cream. Not great.

    • Me too!

  38. I am so excited! I am getting box 444😃

  39. This is my first Sephora box and I can’t wait! Wish I could get to my laptop to see which variation I’ll get–hopefully the first one. I’ve been wanting to try Living Proof to see if it lives up to the hype.

    • You should be able to view it on any device via the Sephora website.

  40. I really hope the ghost oil isn’t box 469 because it smells like lemon pledge…I bought the full size from Sephora online for $14 and had to return it. :/

    • Also, I already have like 2 of those primer potions I got for free (GWP) at Ulta the value is like $10 but I would rather have the bobbie brown stick

  41. Nice! I’m 444 & will use most of that!

    • Yay!!

    • Me, too.

  42. Exciting! I’m 469 and my daughter is 477 so we are both still in mystery land about ours. …I like the two I see though!

    • Mine is 477 also! So excited to see what we get!

    • I qant to see 477 too

    • I posted my 477 box on my instagram 🙂 @_cupofdee

      • Thanks for letting us know!!
