That Becca backlight primer is the TRUTH, oh wow …I usually hate primers, I hate the added step, am afraid that they may clog my pores etc etc BUT I tried the Becca primer that came in this box and wowsa, it looks Amazing, if I had money I would get the full size?

Beverly

So how do you know what your getting on your play box? Im lost.

MandyC

If you have an account click on the play! page and it will show you… plus MSA usually posts spoilers well in advance.

I have a question regard the points: Do you have to make a purchase in store to receive the 50 point or you simply give them the card and receive them? Thank you

MandyC

You have to make a purchase but for any amount. Once I purchased an item that was $3.99 and I used the pass and got 50 extra points?

Nikii

This just might be my most favourite (beauty) box I’ve ever received… many of these products are my favourite. my favourite hair product. my favourite perfume. my favourite mascara… also love the tarte product and excited to try the other sun prduct. everything Except the Becca priming filter… I’m so super stoked.

Marissa

Heads up! I just got an email that I’m off the wait list! San Diego for those wondering!

Liz Cadman

Yay! ? Thanks for letting us know!!

Barbie

Probably old news, but it looks like some more spaces have opened up!

I got an invite email this morning. I then tried to sign up using a different email address and got to the signup page without being put on the waitlist.

Might be worth giving it a try if you’re not already subbed. Good Luck! 🙂

Jen

Not interested in the hair product & I hate that mascara. The other 4 items are fine, but this is definitely the worst box for me as of yet.

Really excited for this subscription when Fall/Winter rolls around!

Aria

I love this sub! Last month was a better box for me personally, but I love tarteguard, and I do air dry my hair. So glad I dropped Ipsy like a hot potato as soon as I received my first Sephora box.

katie

Does everyone get the same box or are they different? This will be my first play box.

Liz Cadman

All Play! by Sephora subscribers get the same box. Hope you love your first box! 🙂

Christine

I just noticed my July order says “box B” normal/dry. I was wondering if there are going to be different boxes this month???? Anyone know???

Taya

Why is it that most people aren’t happy about the bronzer? If I don’t wear bronzer, I look like I’m dying (seriously). If I go out (which is hardly ever) people will literally come ask if I’m sick or what’s “wrong” with me ?. #depressionproblems

Ragan

It makes me look like my face is dirty. (I am the palest foundation shade. A little blush, and I mean a very little bit, is all I need.)

Taya

Weird
I’m between light and medium, but more towards light. I just put a tiny bit too. Lol people are like omg, you look so healthy today

Anna

I finally caved and came to check out the spoilers, initially I had wanted to be surprised but I kept reading comments that gave away what’s in the box on other spoilers and I got bored and decided to have a look ? I am so excited, since I am new to this whole sub box thing I have no product overload issues and in fact have never tried any of these products at all! I own one mascara from who knows how long ago, Clinique brand, so this is going to be fun! I live two hours from the nearest Sephora and ulta so there is no comparing the free gift with purchases vs sub box for me, it doesn’t pay to make a special trip to their stores. I also purchased this box knowing full well I would rarely, if ever, be able to use the play points so I’m ok with that. I also signed up for sub boxes to step out of my comfort zone, learn what I like and dislike since I haven’t worn make up in ten years… So I’m having a lot of fun with this rather than saying I don’t use this or that, I’m still in the just starting to re learn what I like process. There are so many new products out since I last sat at a department store beauty counter, it’s so much fun and the fun is just beginning to me. I envy the stashes some of you have racked up- gimme a year or so, I’ll get there maybe ? Can’t wait to get my play box and my first ever Ipsy bag- is allure calling my name next?

MzBev

Although I kind of understand those who say they’ve got this or that free. Those freebies aren’t really FREE since they’re with a minimum $25 purchase. I don’t mind paying the $10 for these things, its mostly shipping costs, most likely. (including the box its sent in and the processing of the pamphlet inserted in the box) My only disappointment with this box is how tiny the samples have been since I got off the wait list (last month). Before the boxes looked much better…had better value for your buck. I love Ipsy and have been with them over 3 years. If I end up cancelling Sephoras Play box, Allure might be my next one. I also get Boxycharm, which is almost all full size items for $21 per month. And today I got the email that one of my Walmart Beauty Boxes has shipped. June’s gonna be a good month! lol

Anna

Ohhhh I signed up for the Wal mart one, wonder if mine is shipping…hmmmm… I’d better check! Thanks for the heads up! I will totally have to look into Boxycharm and see if that’s something I would like. Allure really is calling my name haha. My Ipsy bag is awesome, so I can’t wait to get that one! And I got two of each target boxes, having fun with June as well. ?

Jenn

To me, the May box was more interesting. I have a zillionty-zillion They’re Real samples. I don’t generally use (or want to use) bronzers, sunscreen (it’s already in my moisturizer) or primers, so don’t know if I’ll bother trying those. And my hair is superfine, so I need to blow dry it daily for volume.

With that out of the way: yes, Ipsy gave more large “samples” — but they were often stuff I wasn’t interested in for various reasons (mostly, though not exclusively, country of origin related). No matter what I did with my BB profile, I continued to get products that weren’t appropriate for my needs (e.g., smoothing products that make my already fine hair look even more flat). While the rewards were good, I hated the fact that if you had a discount code, you couldn’t also get a free sample with the appropriate brand purchase.

I’m sticking for now, in keeping with my 3 month minimum policy. But this box is not a winner for me.

Taya

I’m not a makeup pro, what is a primer? Lol, I have so many subscriptions with products I don’t know how to use.

I just looked at the items again and I guess they aren’t too too bad. I don’t like that mascara. It’s the only mascara that I’ve tried that scratched my skin (idk if it’s considered waterline, but yeah…it’s that area on the top). I don’t have many lashes on the bottom so I don’t even bother trying.

Emily

Primer goes on before foundation 🙂 Becca is a great brand so I am excited to try it!

Taya

Thank you! ☺

You don’t have to answer this if you dont want to: does it make the makeup stay longer? Look more natural? Give full coverage? Or whatever else?

Toni

Everything looks great (well that mascara not so much) but I expected it so I’m excited to try everything

Jade

Do you know when Sephora will let more people subscribe to this? I want it so bad and I check the website every day but I can’t get in 🙁

Sharon

I don’t understand why Sephora won’t allow me to subscribe. Maybe I’l just do allure’s instead.

Ashley Chandra

I have a deeper skin tone, oily skin, and curly hair so I’m pretty underwhelmed by this box, as a whole. Nonetheless, the mascara will get used and so will the perfume sample so the box still retains its value for me. Since I’m dark skinned and oily, I don’t need bronzer nor do I need help creating a dewy skin look. Since my hair is curly, I don’t need help with texture. I also avoid the sunshine to avoid getting darker so the sunscreen does me no good (and 30spf isn’t great anyway).

A little bummed that it seems like the Sephora Play boxes went from being amazing to lackluster the moment they released it to a wider audience. I think it was a premeditated marketing scheme :p

Ava

Well I was really excited about my first box last month, but this one is more misses than hits. Still, I’ve been air-drying my hair lately so I’m excited to try the B&B sample, and the Becca primer will be nice to try. Everything else I already have products I’m happy with, but who knows? Perhaps I’ll be surprised.

jen

I’m excited for the Bare Minerals sample as Its the only one I don’t have already. Most of these were given as free samples with purchase or in many of the sephora favorites sets. They seem to be reusing lots of their samples for these boxes.. Why not charge people $10 to get rid of unused free samples. Seems like a win for sephora! I’m going to continue subscribing since earlier boxes were more original but if they continue to reuse free samples I’m outta here!

amy

I get birchbox ipsy and now play I have noticed that birchbox seems to be more for us in our thirties they give out a lot of great skin care items high end ones usually I love birchbox for their point system you can use them on anything in the store and the reviews are very helpful ipsy usually sends bigger items but the ones that are seem to be drug store brands they do have awesome high end samples like this month urban decay eyeshadow I’m super excited for but their reviews suck people leave a . Or say can’t wait to try this. That don’t help me decide if it’s worth buying or not plus I hate saving points only to see the rewards all suck and the ones that don’t are sold out right away I love that on bb you get a dollar a review basically do every other month you have $10 to spend in their shop plus anything you buy you get points for every dollar you spend I also love the sales in bb I’m new to play last month was my first and it’s my least favorite samples were tiny and that pink lipstick was awful I liked the masks and the rose face cream it was just a miss for me looking forward to this months I love getting all of them in the mail and for $30 I get enough items I hardly ever have to buy anything make up or anti aging related the shampoos are great for travel and I love to try new things that’s what this is all about right? The smile I get when I see the pink box or pink mailer or white and black stripped box is worth my $30.70

shannon

The only thing I am looking forward to is the becca . In disappointed in this box so far because this all seems like stuff you can walk into sephora and get for free. Ipsy gives full size items for the same price, Im sure sephora could throw in one full size anything to make it worth it.

Janet

I think I’m in the minority that preferred last month’s box. I already own everything in this month’s except the Bare Minerals bronzer (which I’m admittedly looking forward to trying). Can’t win ’em all, I guess!

Mandi

I was really excited about FINALLY getting off the waitlist, but I’m not happy about the boxes at all. I love Bumble and Bumble, but that’s literally the only thing that’s interesting to me, and I’m not sure if it’s worth it. I’m just worried if I cancel I won’t be able to get back in if the boxes get better.

MzBev

That’s my worry also. They’ve got one more month to impress me, or I’m just going to cancel. Their boxes looked so much better, while I was on the wait list. Now, this is my 2nd box and Meh! I am looking forward to the priming filter & Tarte tho. Not sure if 2 items is worth it for me. Step it up Sephora!

Nancy

I feel the same way as you two! Maybe the grass is greener on the other side? Last box (my first box) was ok, but I am really not excited at all about this June’s box.

KC

Man, I sure wish Sephora would take me off of the stupid waiting list. My patience is wearing thin…. :/

Nicole McCollum

Meh. I already have every single one of those products except the bronzer bit I do not use bronzer, kind of a waste here for me…but that Becca product though!! That’s good stuff ?
