Play! by Sephora Luxe Vol. 2 Review
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.
Sephora recently launched a special Play! Luxe by Sephora Box Volume 2. (This box is a one-time-purchase and separate from the subscription.) This review is of that limited edition box.
This Play Luxe box comes with a limited edition beauty bag, too.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Box: Limited Edition Play! Luxe Vol 2
The Cost: $25 and a one-time purchase, not a monthly subscription.
– Hourglass makeup product

This box comes with a little folder with cards detailing each item:
And you also get 50 bonus Beauty Insider points when you take this card to your local Sephora store:
Now, let’s check out this bag:
Exclusive Sephora Makeup Bag – Value $10?
This bag is giving me a sporty puffer jacket vibe and I love it! (I literally wore a vest yesterday that matched this bag!)
The bag has a detachable wrist strap, zipper closure, and purple satin lining, too!
Now, on to the items!
Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara – 3.5 g Value $8.84
I recently sampled this thanks to Ipsy, and it’s the best new mascara formula I’ve sampled this year! It gave my lashes incredible volume, length, and I had no clumping issues. I was thrilled to see this in the bag!
Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil – 1.7 oz, value: $14.50
This mask did a fabulous job of hydrating my hair and it was quick and easy to use, too. (After shampooing, massage this in from roots to tips, slowly add water to lather, and then let it sit for 2-3 minutes.)
One word of caution with the fragrance, though. If you don’t like the scent, don’t use this thinking it will wash out when you rinse. The scent stayed with me til my next shower!
Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum – 10 ml Value $36.67
Don’t you love it when one product alone is worth more than the entire cost of the box? And Tata Harper is such a fab (and pricey) ingredient-conscious skincare line, that it’s extra great!
I’ve sampled this serum before, and it’s a treat! I love the natural scent, it’s gentle on my skin, and it hydrates and plumps my skin instantly, too.
Tatcha The Water Cream – 5 ml Value $6.80
If you’ve been following my reviews for a while, you may know that Tatcha is one of my all-time favorite skincare brands. They are ingredient-conscious, the formulas are so gentle, and I swear they work on my skin like no other brand. I can actually tell a difference when I stop using Tatcha.
This water cream is just as hydrating as it sounds, and it’s designed to help with both dryness and uneven texture.
Tom Ford Black Orchid Rollerball – 3 ml Value $22.50
(This rollerball is half the size of the full-size roller ball!) The scent is a mix of Black Truffle, Black Orchid, Black Plum, Noir Gourmand Accord, and Patchouli. The fragrance is very strong, so this little bottle should actually last a while!
Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl – 1.3 g Value $14.26
This is a color-changing lipstick that reacts with your pH to give you a unique berry shade. It’s a new-to-me product, and I love it. (Plus it’s fun to have a black lipstick in your makeup bag going into October/Halloween season!) The formula is sheer, it gave my lips a natural looking berry tint, and it’s moisturizing with a slight sheen.
Here it is swatched:
Verdict: This box has a value of approximately $103.57 not counting the makeup bag. I think the value is great, and I feel like this box was curated for me – SO many of my favorite products! I highly recommend it if you are considering it!
To Wrap Up:
Can I still get this box if I sign up today? Yes! As of 9/25, this box is still available!
