  1. I’m getting really sick of the value differences and the dark lipsticks! I get one in EVERY BOX and they all go right into the trash can. It’s getting ridiculous at this point. They dont even seem to even try anymore. Luckily I had the eyeshadow stick already and love it as well as the peeling gel which it will be nice to have a travel size and love trying new eye creams. With all the variations I wish you could tell them the products you don’t want or don’t use.

  2. Receiving box #136 and was looking on instagram to see what the colors were for the Laura Mercier stick and the NARS pencil is in Let’s get Crazy and the Laura Mericer is in rose gold. Overall, again not a bad box overall but I haven’t been that excited for a box in a few months. A lot of these are repeats as usual, and I am beginning to doubt if Sephora actually cares about curating these boxes or just wants to use it clear out old stock because although these are products come from reputable brands the samples they give us are the same old colors and items they have been giving out for months. This box isn’t so much about discovering new things as it is just seeing what you have already seen in the stores for a long time. The only item I am excited about is the Peter Thomas Roth Peeling Gel, I haven’t really seen that before and have never tried it before. The Belief eye cream is useable and a good product, but I think I have gotten this before in a box and as a point perk. They have had this product also been given out in foils in the stores before in big jars on the makeover counters. The one item I’m truly disappointed in is the Sephora lipstick. I don’t mind the formula of the lipstick and it’s nothing against Sephora’s makeup brand, it’s just that this color is probably the last color I need. I feel as though everyone has gotten this red lipstick sample at one point and has also gotten the makeup forever counterpart that is the same type of red. I suppose it goes with the valentines day theme of February, but we are getting this box after the holiday and isn’t really a spring color. I don’t mind getting a red lipstick every once in awhile, but I feel they add it in way too often and it takes me so long to go through any red lipstick. The NARS color is also a bright hot pink, which I prefer over the red and suits more the spring season coming up. I like the formula of the NARS too, it’s just this color is bright too and can only be worn here and there. This box has 2 bright lip colors, they could have made one bright and one neutral to balance it out. The laura mercier stick is also a nice product, and is a very nice shade but I think we have gotten this exact shade once or twice before so it would’ve been nice to try a different shade from the eyeshadow stick collection. Atelier perfumes are nice, but they don’t have a spray nozzle which makes them hard to use but I am a vanilla perfume fan so I’ll find a way to use it. Although the hair sample last month was actually a nice addition to the box and hope in the future they find new things to do as the fifth item in the box. All together, not a bad box, all the brands are nice and does give a nice variety of makeup and skincare. I’m just starting to think they take leftover inventory and then horseshoe it to fit a monthly theme. But will use everything aside from the red lipstick.

  3. My last numbers are 419..i don’t see anything matching that anywhere….does anyone have a clue what this might be??

  4. Anyone want to swap boxes or swap a few products out? I kinda like the products in box #144, but I’m getting box #227….anyone wanna swap?

  5. Uhhh… I have box 177 and two Sephora brand is not what I’m looking for. Also another black liner is disappointing. I’ll give next month one more chance and hopefully it’s not a dud.

    • Me, too. I don’t want any of these products. I don’t think I’ve liked a box since October. If March sucks, I’m canceling and getting birchbox instead.

  6. For all those curious to whats in their boxes in which spoilers have not yet been released, just email Sephora and ask them! They don’t seem to mind and they get back with you pretty quick!

    • I tried that through chat and they said no they couldn’t see what items were in that box yet..

  7. How do you find out what box number you get?

    • Look under recent orders. It’s the last three digit in the item number

  8. So excited for box 136 .. pretty sure it is the only box with PTR exfoliant (have tried this and love it), the aqua bomb (which I have wanted to try out) and nars lippie. Would have loved it even more if the clementine perfume and lip stain were in it, but still so happy to get this one.

  9. If anyone wants to trade for 136 or 151 just let me know..

    • What box do you have and would you be interested in exchanging just some of the items or the entire box?

  10. 144! Yeaaaah!! So excited!

  11. Smashbox “magic hour”???? I haven’t heard of that palette

  12. Maybe it’s good that I don’t have a spoiler for #185 yet. 😛

    • I to am #185 haven’t see anyone till not have the number. I need to know what’s in it lol so many box options this month!

      • I’m willing to trade if box 185 has a nude lippie in it- I hate nude lipstick.

  13. I would have loved the Fresh Sugar in box #144 and the Nars lip pencil in box #151 and #136, but nope I got neither in box #201. :/

    • I’d be willing to trade my 136 with you if you’d like!!

  14. I must be the one with box #185…

  15. My Box is 136 I’ve been with them for a year. My box sucks! I’m done! Bye Sephora!!!

    • Definitely… 136 blows. Super frustrating that I legit get a red or unwearable brown lipstick in every friggin box. Can’t a pale girl just get some nude shades once in a while? Wish there was some way to indicate what shades you prefer in the play profile

      • I SO agree! I’m in the same boat. Don’t want any dark lipstick but that’s all I get. I also have about 10 black eyeliners!

        I’m doing one more month, then I’m out.

        • And I get upset because I get nudes and brown on this away and want reds and berry colors

      • I agree. I’m sick of red lipstick. I need more shades that I can wear on a daily basis.

  16. Yup, still haven’t been disappointed that I canceled. I can easily get these with a purchase of $25 or more.

  17. I have 219. Very disappointed. Not a right decision to resubscribe… might need to give away these samples:/ I usually don’t like perfume samples but this time the perfume sample will be my favorite product haha

  18. How do you know your box number?

  19. Getting 136! Not bad. Would’ve liked to try the fab mask (or a fresh balm IF it isn’t rose or clear… but I doubt it will be a different color so I’m fine not getting it. I love it but have full size clear and deluxe size rose already) but I’m still pretty happy. Excited for the eye cream and the PTR product looks kinda fun. Curious on the color of the NARS stick and the Laura Mercier stick. I hope the shadow stick isn’t actually black but that wouldn’t be the worst. The NARS I would be happy if it’s the color shown!

  20. I want to get a second sub for Play, I created a new account but at the bottom it says subscription full… how do I get on the email list to get notice? I’m not seeing a spot. TIA

  21. Guess once again I never get lipgloss from this box😳 but it’s all good. Love the eye bomb , not into this box compared to others tho 😔

  22. Anyone have #227??

    • I do! I thought I was the only one!

    • I have 227. I’m surprised it still hasn’t been revealed yet. Not sure if that is concerning or exciting.

      • Someone posted the items on Sephora Beauty Insider!

    • Yes! This article said full spoilers so I’m confused

  23. I’m #136 and not thrilled. Vanilla fragrance? Blarghhh. I hope the matte lip trend goes away soon…. two matte lip products in this box is too much.

    • I agree with you on the matte shades. My lips are on the dryer side and matte is not an attractive look for me. While I agree in principle that we can use these boxes to truly “play” with makeup, I don’t need to spend money to try what I know will already look like crap on me. Sorry for the rant, I just usually love the box and really hate matte lip products.

  24. Anyone else have 185?

    • I do.

    • Iim 185 too

    • This is the response I got for my inquiry about box #185 but they got my name wrong and neither of the spoiler items are listed so… yeah.

  25. So 219 is getting the same lip gloss that we just got in November?! This doesn’t seem right. At least make it a different color! I know it’s only $10 a month but November to February is way too soon to repeat a product.

  26. Glad I’m not #219 because I’ve received half the items in previous boxes. Still waiting on #169.

    • I have 169 too. I feel like my box is always the last one for spoilers, lol.

      • Same!

      • I’m always first or last and this month I guess I’m last

    • I am 169 as well. Can’t wait to see!

  27. Yay, I get the red lipstick!

    I’m surprisingly pleased with this box.

    I could do without the Fresh balm, unless they manage to pick a color I don’t have. Which is unlikely, as they usually pick plain or rose.

    • Box is 144.

      Getting the eyeshadow palette would have been nice.

      Hopefully the Laura Mercier shadow stick will not be black or brown.

    • I’m getting 136 and I already have the red Sephora lip, if you want to swap the red for the fresh, I would love it. 😊

  28. i have 144, and i am so excited about my box this month!

  29. I have 136 and I won’t use any of it. If anyone wants to swap their 144 or any box with Fresh Sugar Lip for this one, let me know.

  30. Why does it seem like there are so many repeats?

  31. The only thing I really don’t like in my box (#136) is the lip pencil. I’ll never use it. Everything else sounds promising though!

  32. Yay! #136 is a really good box, almost as good as #144! So happy since this is only the second time in years that I will not be receiving the worst box for me!

  33. Ahhhh this is killing me …. What’s in 169! I’ve seen previous posts about emails but they don’t seem right because of the other boxes. I’d be very happy if they were right though. I have way tooooo many lippies.

    • Have you seen spoilers for 169? That’s my box as well 😬

    • Ahhh sorry that’s my box and I never know till I open my box when it’s delivered to me😒

  34. Come on box #169!!! I think it’s the last box yet to be spoiled!
