  1. I’m starting to wonder if we just won’t be getting full box spoilers this month :/

    • I agree 🙁 I don’t think I’ll get my box before I leave for the holidays, but I at least want to know what is in it!

    • I guess we’re not? But, you’d think they’d announce that somewhere. And, I guess they’re just not going to ship them on the typical schedule either? Like the commenter below me, I’m now annoyed I probably won’t get my box before I travel home for the holidays even though I usually get it on the 13th or the 14th every month. I know it’s a $10 beauty box, but I find it stressful that they can’t be consistent.

      • Hey, at least they did just put the video up!

        • Yayyyyy! I really want the Dr. Jart and Drybar!

  2. Whatever it is, that stick looks extremely similar to the Laura Mercier stick I got in my November 2016 Play! box last year.

    • The Laura Mercier one has a diffrent look not like this one it has a Rihanna fenty look but idt its rhiannas makeup ill be stund

      • This doesn’t look like Fenty at all. The packaging for her’s is that light tan…

  3. Fairly certain it’s Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Blossom. The Trestique, Bobbi Brown, and Nars sticks look like they’re a different texture on the Sephora site and the last 2 appear to have chunkier shimmer pieces.

  4. I think the 3rd item could be the Trestique Venetian Gold Eyeshadow or Maldives Luminescent highlighter but more likely the eyeshadow since some received the highlighter earlier this year.

  5. Only issue I have is these were free minis over the summer with purchase. So to me it just feels recycled.

  6. Really hope that I do not get the Smashbox eyeshadow duo, I already have two of those. Nice colors but I don’t need a third. I received the first two as GWP’s… I really wish Sephora would stop recycling $25 / $35 GWP’s in the play box. I wish that the play box offerings would be exclusive to the box and not offered as GWP’s or Beauty Bazaar point perks. It’s really making me reconsider my subscription.

  7. Looks like LAURA MERCIER, J’adore Le Soleil Sunrise Highlighter Crayon to me!

  8. Trestique shadow stick maybe?

  9. Is it me or is it taking forever to see box variations?? Impatiently waiting 😉 Like everyone else who gets the box I reallyyyyy don’t want another black liner!

    • I’m the same! 😀 I keep checking and checking!

      • Me three! I’m 601.. .Come on spoilers!

        • I’m 601 too! Woo!

    • I’m so surprised they’re still not out and it’s already the 12th! They’re gonna ship soon.

  10. My 2 most used items are black eye liner and highlighter, so I am thrilled to see them! I cancelled ipsy because they only sent me metallic and colored liners I would never use!! Sephora boxes seem to have more everyday use, adult makeup.

    • I would love to get colored liners ♥

    • Colour and sparkle loving adult here- I think color and glittery/shimmering liners are much more fun to get in a subscription than black liners. I’d rather try new, different and bold than same old same old. If I get one more sample of nude mauve brown lip product from a subscription box? I could open a dang store for the entire lot.

      • If any of you want to donate any of your unused samples I’d gladly pay for shipping. I volunteer at the local domestic abuse shelter and the women there would be thrilled to have them since they have nothing. If you’re interested I’d pay for shipping M_Bross is my Twitter handle.

        • I will definitely keep that in mind. Thank you!!!

  11. It looks like a Laura Mercier Caviar Stick

  12. More black eyeliner.. Where is a blue eyeliner? COLORS? Another highlighter that i won’t ever use. I’m cancelling i think.

    • Agreed! I don’t need another black eyeliner. I have a collection…same goes for highlighters. How many does a girl need?

    • Remember when they were a great place to shop with great customer service and great Play boxes? I wonder who they hired to sabotage their brand. They have crashed and burned this year.

      • Very interesting story behind your question, actually. Sephora is owned by LVMH. The principal owner of LVMH is either engaged or already married to a famous designer who has recently gotten a huge push in the cosmetics sales arena.

        Check it out. I think it explains so much. 🙂

  13. Really ladies! Eyeliner and eyeshadows do not have a very long shelf life! Stop complaining! Look on the back of your makeup and there is a tiny “jar” with a number on it. That stands for how many months that product is good for. My Kat Von D Saint and sinner eye shadow palette I just purchased- has a shelf life of 9 months! Yep! 50$+ for 9 months! Go ahead, start checking out your repeats! They might be doing this because of the small shelf life and do not want you to get sick, or the product you LOVE to go to junk.
    You now are going to be super smart shoppers and impress your friends too!🤗🦄💖

    • I don’t know a makeup artist on the planet that would toss their Kat Von D pallete after 9 month’s, I guarantee that they will be around for many years if the brushes are property cleaned. Makeup companies put dates on them to make more money ♥

    • FYI – that’s the shelf life once it’s been opened. But I agree on stopping the complaining. It’s a subscription box and there is a lot more worth of product than the $10/month we spend!

    • I never would throw an eyeshadow palette away after nine months. That’s a gimmick to keep you buying.

      • I think it depends on the usage. After 9 months of almost daily brushes or fingers in a product, whether or not there’s some left, I might buy new. Even if my hands/brushes are clean there are bound to be hand/face oils that I don’t really want to keep smearing on my face after awhile. But to each his own.

  14. My comments are not posting…so I suppose, this is a test. Can anyone else see them or is it my blasted computer? Thanks

    • I see them

    • Sometimes it takes a bit to show up.

    • I see your comment

    • I see

  15. I’m thinking that since this month’s box is all about the ‘eyes’, that this might be the BOBBI BROWN Long-Wear Cream Eyeshadow Stick (maybe in Truffle or Vanilla):

    And yes, we will be getting either the Liquid Eyeliner OR the Smashbox Shadows…I’m hoping for that cute little shadow kit (great for my bag)!

    • While I would love it if it were the Bobbi Brown eyeshadow, I don’t think it is. Look at the way the plastic tapers inward in the photo above, and then on Bobbi Brown’s website the plastic stays pretty straight and doesn’t taper. That doesn’t mean that the trial size won’t do that, but my guess is that the packaging is different enough that it’s a different product.

      • It’s the Laura Mercier shadow stick that they were doing a few months ago as a promo if you spent $35.

  16. Oh geeze, I already have that Smashbox shadow and about 4 different taupe cream eyeshadow sticks…Bobby Brown, LM that Tres brand and some other brand. Not my favorite shade either.

    Black eyeliners I’m always ok with, but dang- maybe time to cancel. Disappointed…

    • I had gotten that Smashbox eye shadow already in a Beauty box. I think Macy’s . The colors are beautiful & bendable. I like Smashbox.

  17. ANOTHER black liquid liner? I could almost fill the box back up with all the black liquid liners they’ve sent out this year.

  18. I think it’s either the Laura Mercier or Bobbi Brown, which I’ve received two of LM and one of BB from them already.

    • I agree. I keep getting the same products in 3 different boxes within 2-3 months. I received those two highlighters and yet another black liquid eyeliner? I also get so many mascaras! I am starting to gather all of my untouched items and putting an assortment of them into different boxes for little holiday gifts.

  19. Laura Geller Illuminating Stick?

  20. Laura Mercier…which I’ve previously received in a Sephora play box.

  21. There isn’t one item here that I’ll use. Bummer. I’m a skincare junkie and am disappointed that these are all makeup items. Getting skincare samples let’s you try expensive products to see which ones are worth investing in.

    • Agreed, I’ve recently cancelled all but one beauty subscription box in place of getting BeautyFix.

    • That’s what I’m looking for too!!

    • Can I give you a little known fact? All their products in store are supposed to be available for you to take home in a trial vial – even the most expensive brands. You don’t need Play. You just ask for a sample to take home.

    • I am bummed about the lack of skincare products, too. I look forward to pricey items to try and actually see some results before I would buy. It seems all 3 of the boxes I get, none of them have any serums, creams, masks or eyecreams this month. I am totally out of eyecream. I have been using rose oil and Shea butter instead.

      • Have u tried beautyfix it’s almost all skin care it’s a great sub bo

  22. Dirty little secret eye shadow stick I believe. I’m getting one in my Ipsy bag and looks similar!!

    • I don’t think Sephora sells DLS?

    • The package is different.

  23. Is this box still available?

  24. I think it looks like a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow stick… and I already have that Smashbox Duo. Groan.

  25. I just realized that you’re either getting the Smashbox Golden Hour eye shadow OR the Clinique liner. I believe the shadow has the two shades Turned On and Psyched. The shades look great…I hope I receive the shadow. I heard good things about the liner though.

    • Oh no! I hope I get the liner. I must be the only MSA reader who has ZERO liquid eyeliners and only three pencil lol.

      • Me, too!! Lol nearly 2 years of subscribing and I’ve never received liquid eyeliner. Just a few pencils.

      • Nope Im right here with ya! No liquids for me either. I hope I get the liquid!! 🙂

  26. So glad I canceled..

  27. Kind of looks like a Trestique highlighting stick!

    • I agree. TreStique mini shadow stick. Likely the 0.025 oz Morimoto Pink Pearl that is included in the TreStique Shimmering Holiday Nudes Set on sale now.

    • Ewe….I hope not

    • Ooh…I loved their highlighting pencil/crayon we got maybe 5-6 months ago!

  28. Kind of looks like the Nars velvet shadow stick but hard to tell. There are a few that have that packaging. Looks pretty though!

    • Yes, it looks like Nars and they’ve had a ton of Nars products in their rewards lately.

  29. Or a Bobbi Brown cream shadow stick

    • I agree. I think it’s Bobbi Brown.

  30. LM caviar stick?

    • That’s exactly what it look like to me too!

  31. Looks like the Laura Mercier one they gave us a few months ago.

    • exactly

    • Agree; I also really like that one.

      • I’m betting the Laura Mercier as well!
