Play! by Sephora Review – August 2018
Play! by Sephora is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription. Each month they send you six samples, a PLAY! BOOK of tips and tricks, and a PLAY! PASS for in-store learning.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
Every month they ship all of the samples a drawstring bag with a different design.
FYI – There are variations of this box. Sephora sent me this box early for the review, but I don’t have the box # associated with this box. We’ll share box # spoilers as soon as we get them!
To find out which box you’re receiving at the beginning of each month, follow these instructions:
If you log in through a browser, not the app, and go to my account > account details > online orders and open the play! Order Details (it was dated 11/1 for me), you can see the “item number” next to the image.

Now, on to the items!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel – 2.5 ml Value $6.47
This is a clear eyebrow gel that kept my brows in place all day and I could apply it on top of my brow powder without any issues. It’s definitely a classic for a reason!
Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Cream Lipstick C211 -1.4 grams Value $8.80
This lipstick formula is creamy, moisturizing, highly-pigmented, with a satin finish = A+! The cool pink shade is my favorite lip color, too!
Here it is swatched:
Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate – 8 ml Value $20.80
This serum is designed to reveal “smoother, more radiant skin in as few as seven days.” It’s formulated without phthalates, parabens, or sulfates. And my favorite part? It instantly made my skin feel smoother!
Ouai Repair Shampoo + Conditioner – 7 ml each – Value $1.39 total
I always appreciate when a subscription box sends both the shampoo and conditioner – I need to sample the full set! I’ve sampled various Ouai products before, and I’m always impressed with the formulas, too. (One thing to note on both this shampoo and conditioner and the spray below is that they are pretty fragrant.)
OUAI Volume Spray – 25 ml Value $4.64
Post-shower, I sprayed this pretty liberally on damp hair, then followed with the blow dryer. I could definitely tell a difference in the volume and the texture of my hair with this product. The difference in volume is subtle, but it helped my hair hold curls better, too.
Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara – 2 ml Value $6
My first thoughts after applying it? DRAMA! This mascara gets an A from me in both volume and length! It gets a B in lash separation, but all in all, this is a fab formula!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $48.10. I think that’s great for a $10 beauty box, especially since the box will always include high-end brands. Most of these products I’ve sampled before, but everything is awesome, so I’m more than happy to have duplicates, and if you are new to these products, I think this would be an amazing box to sample!
