  1. Well, add me to the list of folks that received a damaged lipstick in this box. To me, it looks like Sephora realized that these mini lipsticks didn’t pass quality control for standard bonus distribution so they just threw them into out boxed. The top half was completely smashed in and the lipstick wasn’t even stuck to the base. It’s a shame because the Rebel Chic color looks like something I might actually like (and not another identical red- again).

    Overall I have been enjoying the boxes, but seriously- putting out this much damaged goods is right up there with Ulta selling used makeup….

    • My rebel chick was smashed in the top and not attached to the bottom. I’ve had so many issues with my sephora orders that I didn’t even bother to contract them.

  2. Why is box 169 getting 2 sephora lippies while all the other boxes get a sephora and a high end brand? Also out of 5 of my sub boxes this month I am getting 3 mascaras . Thinking of canceling. I already cancelled one of my others.

    • 177 is getting 2 Sephora lip products, too. The first spoiler said you would get one OR the other… 🙄 Really annoyed to be getting 2 Sephora line lip products in the same box, especially when there are sooo many brands!! And when they have stated OR!! I think I’m about to cancel this. They could do so much better, and we never get even one full size product… I get it’s only $10, but I can’t imagine the value of this box is much over that.

    • Not only do we get two Sephora lip products but they’re both red yayyy ….. not

      • I know. SO TIRED of bold red lipsticks when I only wear red on special occasions. I have TONS of reds from sub boxes and so few mauves and cool-toned pinks or nudes. Ah well. My cream lipstick arrived broken anyway, so I guess that’s only one red, but still…

        • I WANT reds and berry, but I get all nudes (I don’t wear because I want to LOOK like I am wearing makeup) and the pink, brown grey colors that look awful on me. Lol…seems they switch them up and send to the wrong people.

  3. Yah, I think I’m cancelling this month. I really wish that instead of monthly themes, they had product themes for each month. Maybe 3 options like a skin/hair care box, a box for women who only want make-up and a variety box like they do now.

  4. Box #201 soooo makes up for last month! I’m so excited to try every product this month!! I do hope the MUFE lipstick is red though!

  5. Does anyone else have 227 as the last 3 numbers of their item number? My Box doesn’t show any spoilers yet and I’m dying to know what I will be getting in my February box! There are so many variations this month!

  6. I’m getting box #177, but I’ve received much of it in previous boxes. If anyone wants to trade for #144, let me know!

    • How do you know which box u will get?

  7. I was having some FOMO but I am glad I canceled. The Flowerbomb was nice but since not guaranteed and so was the Tory Burch but since you can’t pick I am so glad to save $10 and not have a bigger pile of useless samples.

  8. Is it the first 3 digits or the last 3 digits of your order number?

    • The last three.

    • The last three of the item number, not the order number.

      • WHere is the item number? The last three of my order number are 504

  9. I have 441 and haven’t read anything about it either!

  10. Ok, so that’s 8 variations. Anyone know how many there are in total?

    I have 185 and haven’t seen that spoiler yet.

    • I have 185 too! I was beginning to think I looked at the wrong number.

      • Me to 185 I thought the exact same thing, maybe I have the number wrong. I almost want to live chat with them and find out what’s in the box!

    • I am 441 and haven’t seen one yet!

    • I’m 185 as well…my Box is the last to show spoilers every single month! 😫. I wonder if it’s bc I pay with PayPal? Any other box 185ers pay with PP?

      • Yes! Hmm not sure how this would affect spoilers though

      • I pay with PayPal too

  11. Why do I always get red lipstick? Every. Single. Month. Box #177

    • I wish. I get pink/nude


  12. I’m loving my box #201. It’s like Sephora knew I hate black liquid eyeliner and red lipstick.

  13. True I’m hoping no Barbie pink as well, the rebel looks dark, I’m blonde and light skin so dark stand out to much.

  14. Hi, i have brown eyes and brown hair and fair complexion. I always get very bold reds and neon strong pink colors. And I like nude rose colored lipstick and gloss or red with a shade that doesn’t look like Ferrari. Is this what I will always get because according to whatever it matches me and there is no chance for something more subtele? Girls are you having same problem, or with the same combo of look you also getting different shades of stuff and I shouldn’t worry yet? Let me know

    • I believe they are going to give you whatever sample lipstick color they have available at the time. While I’ve been happy with my boxes, I honestly do not believe it’s tailored to my beauty profile. In other words, Ferrari red and Barbie hot pink are fair game to anyone who subscribes. Hey Sephora! Rose and mauve colors are ok to include, too!

    • Play! is like that. I like reds and never get them. They say it’s “curated for you” but I think that’s PR nonsense or our curators are illiterate and color blind.

    • I can only pull off dusty rose and mauve lip products too. Reds and bright pinks are a bust for me. And I need moisture – matte lip products are awfully dry. Ugh

  15. I got #169 and I’m so happy! While the perfect box would have been #177 since I’m actually in need of buying a new eyeliner I’m still happy.

    Now what I wish I would see in a future box is a makeup brush cleaner or a make up remover.

  16. Box 169 (my box) is getting the short end of the stick! No Nars or Laura Mercier?! Boo. Box 177 also got cheated. How do we end up with the better quality boxes?! I’ve been a member for a long time and it seems 9/10 I don’t get the best of the best. Allure Box knocked Sephora outta the game last month with that full size Sunday Riley. Looks like Allure with get the win 2 months in a row for me.

  17. Anyone willing to trade #193 with my #136? I’m ready to trade anything on #136 with that smashbox eyeshadow. Lemme know if interested.

  18. Anyone interested to trade #193 for #136 ? Ready to trade anything on #136 for the Smashbox eyeshadows

  19. If anyone wants to trade for 136 let me know

  20. Someone from my play group forum for box 227 on the Sephora play community emailed Sephora for the items of box 227!

    Make Up Forever Artist Rouge
    Peter Thomas Roth Firmx Peeling Gel
    First Aid Beauty Ginger Tumeric Mask
    Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara
    Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Shade in Perfect Nude
    Philosophy Amazing Grace

  21. I’ll be giving that lipstick away. Depending what color the lipstain is, I may give that away too. That mascara sucks. I’ve bought it before and had to throw it away after 2 weeks. It’s so thick on the wand and clumps up. No matter if you clean the wand or not. I’m excited about getting a perfume though. I wanted to try the eye bomb and mask, after seeing other boxes get it. Hope the lipstain isn’t any shade of Barbie Pink though. I’m fairskinned with auburn hair.

  22. I was hoping for the nude lip gloss rather than the rebel chip lip… anyone want to trade?

  23. I honestly can’t believe another red lipstick. I believe that’s 5 in 6 months. I Hate red 💄!

  24. Nice. The only thing I’m a little disappointed in is the mascara. Would have loved the eyeshadow duo, but oh well. I can live with it.

    • The mascara is what disappointed me also, but who know what color that lip stain will be hopefully not fuchsia pink
