We have a new exclusive spoiler for the July Play! By Sephora box just for MSA readers! Sephora sent me a box early so I could share the spoilers with you! (Also, we have confirmed with Sephora, you have until July 10th to sign up for a Play! by Sephora subscription and get the July box as your first box. They added text in red on this page to help with any confusion.)

Here is my unboxing video of one of the boxes this month. (FYI – Sephora is not sharing box # info this month. I do not know which # the box I’m unboxing corresponds with. Sorry!)

Items in this box:

And in case you missed it, all subscribers will receive one of these four skincare items:

And, for July, ALL subscribers will receive:

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Paaarty – 1.5 g Value $7.77

I love tarte and I love their blush, so this is a stellar subscription box item for me! The formula is ingredient conscious and goes on so smoothly. It has a matte finish, and you can easily build color. (Plus there’s no fallout with this powder, and it stays put once it’s applied!)

Here it is swatched:

What do you think of the spoilers? 

(FYI – if you sign up for Play! by Sephora now, the July box will be your first box!)

  1. To be honest I’m a little relieved they are not revealing spoilers anymore. I found myself getting upset before the Box would arrive because I wasn’t getting what another box was. This way it’s a bit of a surprise and I have something to look forward to.. but everyone’s different. I already have an idea of what’s coming way beforehand with Boxycharm & Allure so this is like my one little surprise!

  2. I am really tired of receiving that Tarte product – I believe that this is my fifth or sixth! I didn’t really like it the first time…. Move on!

  3. I still don’t have a shipping date yet….what’s up Sephora play?

  4. has anyone gotten their Sephora play box for july 2018 yet? and what is inside…

    • Nope. I doubt they’ve even started shipping yet.

    • No box, but my shipping notification came today!

      • Mine too

    • Just got my shipping notification. #152 will update when I receive.

      • I’m getting thos box also!

    • I got an email today saying my box has shipped. What’s weird is under my order it says shipped and under that it says “out of stock”.

      • Mine has said out if stock for over a week. It’s been a weird month for sub boxes all the way around.

  5. Every single time u get a box Liz from Sephora play for a long time now I get the same exact box! And as I am excited about the tarte blush I am not exactly thrilled about all the others. I just got trust face oil from my Sephora kit I purchased and I haven’t even used it yet lol but overall I love that Sephora is doing no chemical brands . So most likely I bet this is going to be my box ☹️ Love the video tho 💋

  6. OMG, they’d better NOT send me two face oils. How horrible.

  7. So on my Sephora account where it says my box number is 160, that’s meaningless now?

    Thanks Sephora. Boooo!

    • I have #160 too. It is just about to ship…but…we don’t know what’s in it! LOL. So tell me what you get if yours arrives first! 🙂

      • Will do!

        • We have spoilers! Check out new MSA post!

  8. you know Sephora play, we are all adults here, we are not five and its Christmas, just tell everyone what is in the boxes, show all the numbers to everyone, so we can see what we are getting…..we pay for these, and we want to know what is in are boxes……thank you

    • Yes! Exactly!!

  9. Crossing my fingers for the Fresh Sugar Balm and the Drunk Elephant Moisturizer 🤞🏻🤞🏻

  10. I really hope sephora knows me better at this point than to have sent this box to me.

  11. Would love to get my hands on that drink elephant ekk
    So are y’all saying they won’t be giving us our box # spoilers? If so that sucks 😵

  12. I was thinking the exact opposite of some of the commenters here. My thoughts were that people were cancelling because they weren’t liking what they were going to get in the PLAY boxes monthly……knowing full spoilers ahead of time and not liking/wanting some of the items.

    By not giving out complete box contents, SephoraPLAY may be feeling that they have a better chance of keeping subscribers (and possibly getting new ones) now that the spoilers aren’t being entie given away for the whole box.

    I’m now seeing people resubscribing who had previously ended their subs with this box.

    Just a thought.

    • Thought the exact same thing!

    • I’ve never gotten a spoiler before they charged me.

      • Exactly

      • Exactly. Spoilers don’t make subscribers leave, boxes that are allegedly personalized but continuously fall short do.

  13. Love this video! Thank you! I really hope I get the exact same box!! I want want want the lip balm and the skin care products!!

    • It’s a great box! Hope you get it! 🙂

  14. Thanks for the unboxing, Liz. For anyone who loves skincare this is the month to subscribe to Sephora Play.

  15. I had cancelled my sub., but just resubbed after this post. Oh Subscription Addiction stop tempting me! I thought I had this thing under control!

  16. Ooh, I like the concept of a green theme box this month.

  17. 3 face products with oil in them?! I really hope this isn’t my box. That’s overkill

    • It’s two face oils and one hair oil mask.

      • Oh true! It’s still a lot of oil for one box lol

      • Oh Lord. I hope I don’t get the hair oil. They keep sending me hair masks and conditioners and wave spray when I have oily, super short hair. I do love face oils though.

    • I suspect (or at least hope) that box is for those who have dry skin. I have combo oily/dehydrated, and that would be a nightmare box for me. I use face oils in the winter sometimes, but JM products break me out horribly, as does that Tarte cleanser. The other skincare products would be great for me, though, as would the Fresh lippie. And I like the blush.

      • I better not get all these oils, my face is dry but I can’t do it, it just sits there and I don’t like how it feels, honestly lol I really want the drunk elephant moisturizer! I already have the Farmacy one and I don’t care for the tarte cleanser.

        • I have the d.e. one and it feels heavy to me, almost like one of those old whipped oils from back in the day. I have normal to combo oily in my t zone skin so maybe that’s why, but I don’t love it.

  18. I personally do not like that they have chosen to stop sharing box number info and will be canceling if this is ongoing. I don’t care for surprises or I wouldn’t haunt this site every day

    • Yep. It’s irritating. I’d really like to know their rationale. It’s not as if they’re doing something super special this month to warrant an extra level of secrecy.

      I prefer Ipsy’s model of making box contents available for everyone, to spoil themselves, if they so wish. 😀 Why does Sephora care? They already got our money. It’s not as if someone can cancel their order if they don’t like what they’re getting.

      • I prefer Ipsy. Not a lot of high dollar, high end stuff, but they try to give you things you like. And I like trying new brands.

        • That’s not my experience with Ipsy. They give you dollar store brands, or brands you’ve never heard of, in colors that are UNWEARABLE! I remember my second box had a black eyebrow pencil (my eyebrows and lashes are blonde) and a waterproof mascara that they didn’t tell anyone was waterproof! When you manage to get a prestige brand, it would be a prostitute orange lipstick or glitter eyeshadow…in the same shade for months on end. And unlike here, if you dare complain, you had DOZENS of rabid basics telling you how dare you not kiss their feet for taking your money every month and giving you garbage in return. Ipsy is a straight up scam.

  19. Seriously, no one needs 2 face oils in the summer.

    • I do! My skin is so dry that even in this 112 southern Cali heat I don’t get oil production ! Of course I’ll probably get anything but the oil 🙄

      • Agreed, there is never enough oil in the world for my skin!

    • I politely disagree. With all the air conditioning, chlorine in the pool, and being out in the sun, my combo/oily skin needs a lot of extra moisture though not as much as in the winter. That said, I’d be upset if this was my box because I dont like JM products, and already have a great oil for nighttime.

  20. From the headline I thought this was going to be the unboxing video from Sephora with all the products. Still a great box, just wondering if all variations will have products this good.

  21. That would be a dream box for me!! Other than the blush which I already have (from the birthday gift last year) I’d be pumped about all of the products.

    • Right! I rcvd the Tarte blush as a bday gift as well so I’ll be swapping mine. That could be a curation for ppl w/ dry skin though?

    • I’m so glad you pointed that out. I signed up July 2 because of the blush, hadn’t been charged, so canceled when I realized I already had this and never wear it. Yay, $10 saved. Thank you!

    • I, too, got that blush for my bday and love it. It is a gorgeous, somehow subtle yet brightening, tone on my super pale skin. I am traveling every week for work and was gutted when my little blush shattered and crumbled, as I was trying to depot it to put in my travel palette. A couple days later I saw it would be included in this months sub! (^_^) Psyched.
