We have three spoilers for the September Play! By Sephora box!

We can’t tell you too much about your September box right now, but let’s just say your makeup bag is about to get a serious upgrade—in more ways than one! We’ve redesigned your PLAY! bag so now not only is it seriously eye-catching, it’s also 100-percent recyclable.

Your box will arrive the third week of September, but here’s a buzzworthy hint to tide you over until then:

Your September box will contain one of these innovative products: boscia Cactus Water Moisturizer; NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Kiss; or OLEHENRIKSEN Truth Serum.

Each September box will have one of the following:

  1. Sephora Play #715:
    Marc Jacobs Shameless Foundation in Medium
    Too Faced Hangover Primer
    Sephora Lashcraft Big Volume Mascara
    Boscia Cactus Water
    Ole Henriksen Truth Serum
    Philosophy Amazing Grace Perfume

    The serum and the Boscia moisturizer are decent sizes. Not thrilled about the Too Faced primer (I bought one from Ulta and I don’t like it much, I prefer Dermalogica) and I don’t care much about Marc Jacobs’ foundation (I use Lancome). I won’t complain much, though, I think it is good enough for a $10 subscription…

  2. Can someone please tell me how they find out what number their box is? I cannot figure it out

  3. Any news on box 715?

  4. Box #723 anyone?

    • I’m getting 723! No idea what’s in it though. My profile is fair skin. I changed it a couple months ago because I kept getting volumizing hair products for my wavy hair. So I’m not sure what else I have in there at this point hah.

      • Nice, me too! Fair skin/wavy/curly hair. I don’t know how long until I’ll get to find out now, the post offices are closed for the hurricane (Coastal SC here). Please let me know what you get!

        • Mine normally comes on the 17th, so hopefully there are spoilers by then but I will definitely post it if not. Be safe!

  5. I have box 772 coming. Anyone else?

  6. Someone posted that they were told what was in Box#681:

    Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer ( SKU 2150084 )

    Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Kiss ( SKU 2150886 )

    Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume Mascara ( SKU 2150902 )

    Peter Thomas Roth Hungarian Thermal Water Mineral-Rich Mask ( SKU 2150910 )

    Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream ( SKU 2150944 )

    Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Nectar ( SKU 2150951 )

    Hope this is true, because it would be an awesome box!!!

    • So hoping this is accurate!!!!

    • OMG, This is gonna be my first box ever, just got into subscription world. I am 681 and except for the primer I am super excited to get this.

    • Me too!

    • that would be mine if that is correct! not jazzed on the primer (had the full-size, and already a deluxe)but would be excited for the nude stick and the water-cream. sunday riley stuff rocks!

    • this box seems okay but i’m SO beyond sick of receiving cool toned rosy mauvey pink lipsticks!! just got one in my last box as well :/

  7. There is a video uploaded by a blogger, I don’t know which box it is but it includes the following products:

    Ole Henrikson Truth Serum
    Boscia Cactus Water Hydrating Cream
    Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer
    Marc Jacobs Foundation
    Lashcraft Big Volume Mascara
    Amazing Grace Ballet Rose Perfume

    • This one is 715 I just got that

  8. I have box 753… if im is ot mistaken… i cant wait for the spoiler… i already spied on my ipsy spoileds…

  9. I have box 731 anyone know what’s in that box??? Pretty please. 🤗😊

  10. Update: the “bag” is gonna be thin plastic one. The one you would toss…

    • Is it like the clear plastic bag with red writing that they sent one month last year? Because I liked that bag and still use it for travel since it’s quite sturdy and see through. Would love to have another of that style bag. If its thinner than the previous plastic bag, i might not be able to reuse it though.

  11. Have any of you seen Sephora’s instagram that shows the September box? It shows the new bag too. If you haven’t:

    It shows some samples that may show up in some of the boxes or at least I hope so! I’ve been wanting to try that Too Faced Primer.

  12. According to a post from Sephora (as published in the Beauty Insider Community under the group Play! by Sephora) there will become available on Saturday September 8th. Hope this helps!

  13. And we all know the nudestix will be nothing but a tiny nubbin of a thing lol

    • those nudesticks are great give them a try you will be amazed

    • Last time they sent a Nudestix product it was a decent size. Just the color was not good for anybody.

    • The ones I’ve received from Sephora play and other sub boxes have always been a great size and have lasted forever. Still have them.

  14. If i knew I would get the O.H. I would sign up again, but I’m not up for multi use stick products. I just don’t like them. The cactus stuff seems like it might be sticky/leave a sticky residue behind and with only a 1 out of 3 chance of getting what I want and play not playing well with my profile these last few months I’m not even willing to risk my $10.

    • I have several of those OH serums and I can’t use them. You can have mine. [email protected]

    • I feel ya Jamie! I canceled not bc the sub is bad, but bc my FOMO was- I’d see spoilers and there’d be a “box” version most suitable for my profile, but I’d get a different one that wasn’t. I’m over it.

  15. I’d like any one of those spoilers! Also, I’m stoked to hear they’re trying a new bag design. I’d be happy just getting an additional sample and skip the bag altogether, but I know some people really like getting the bag.

    I do hope Sephora steps up their hair product game if they’re going to continue to focus more on haircare than fragrance samples. My dark, coarse, thick hair does not need texturizer, volumizer, or shampoos for blondes…which is what I’ve gotten. Can we please get some leave in conditioners, smoothing creams, and shampoos for dark hair? The hair products Sephora is giving out seem to be geared toward one specific hair type (ie. Blonde, thin/fine, Caucasian).

    • I’ve gotten a ton of styling creams in my box, one in the last 4/5 boxes. I’d prefer something else so idk rhyme or reason why you arent getting them but i am. check you preferences?

    • Jenn~

      I agree! The blonde shampoo felt like an insult last month but I’m seeing if this month is redeeming. I’m tired of hair and skin products that there is no way I’ll be able to use them 😕

    • Ugh I have fine, oily hair and I feel like all I get is hair masks and leave in conditioners which are a nightmare. What I wouldn’t give for a volumizer or dry shampoo! I swear, some months it feels like they went out of their way to give me the exact opposite of my profile.

      • Mine is cut to about 2” long, oily, straight, and I keep it that way so I can wash and go. They keep sending all these hair products for beach waves and conditioners. Driving me nuts.

  16. The Truth Serum is an awesome product, and smells wonderful too!!!

    • Love it myself!

  17. If you log into your Sephora app and click on the order details for Sephora play on the picture you will see how the bag gonna look like. It is reddish with white and says play in the middle

  18. Tempting – I’d be good with any of those options! If I hadn’t just signed up for three new beauty subs I don’t need, lol…

    Well, I guess I have a few days to decide!

  19. Can you still sign up for september?

    • Yes, you have until the 10th to sign up!

  20. I truly Love Sephora Play Box. I wish they will make a Luxe box it will be so worth it.

    Every item i receive is a name brand and items that I want to test before i purchase the full size.

    Love me Some @Sephora Play Box

    • They do one a couple times a year.

      Keep an eye peeled.

    • They did a luxe box that had some really high end stuff—La Mer, SKII, etc. the samples were fingernail sized. And the Atelier perfume spray smelled like dirt. The rollup bag was nice. But $25 for a nice rollup bag and tiny samples just wasn’t worth it to me.

  21. I would prefer cactus watwr but the Nude Stix is okay. Please no serum though!

  22. Be on the lookout tomorrow, Sephora is dropping three new play! smarts skincare boxes by age 30s, 40s & 50s! You can find some information on YouTube for these!

    This new PLAY! offering will be available for $20 per box on Each subscription beauty box contains six deluxe samples and informational cards about the products and theme. Upon purchasing, clients are invited to watch a live product application demo and interact via chat with the presenter.

    Each PLAY! SMARTS Box has a specific theme. This newest PLAY! SMARTS box is “Skincare by Age” for three different age groups; 30’s, 40’s and 50+. Clients have different skincare concerns, needs and wants, and Sephora strives to provide each client with unique offerings to them. This box will be available starting September 7th.

    When purchasing a PLAY! SMARTS box you will also receive a unique, on-theme beauty bag and SMART PASS worth 50 bonus Beauty Insider points.

    • Thanks, this sounds great, maybe I will grab one!

    • cool. I might have to swithch up my play box for this one. I would love products geard toward my age.

  23. I’d be ok with any of these. The serum is my fave, I’d like to try the Boscia and the last Nudestix they sent was great but the color was terrible. This color looks way better.

    • Kiss is their best selling color and it’s absolutely gorgeous

  24. recyclable like reusable or biodegradable?

    • Like throw away type…

  25. I really want the NudeStix!!! Box #772
