It has finally arrived! My second Play! by Sephora box is here! This months box theme is all about Valentines day & feeling the love!
LAURA MERCIER Caviar Stick Eye Colour in "Rose Gold"
This creamy eye color has been my go to for the past few transitions from day to night make up. It's long lasting & high in pigment. It's crease/smudge resistant too. I really like that it's so build-able too. This color in particular is from the Shimmer Collection in Rose Gold. With 7 shades in the Matte Collection & 10 in Shimmer, how could I not fall in love?!
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in "Lets Go Crazy"
Oh NARS, we go way back. I was super excited to try this one out. I never wear lip liner or a matte finish but I'm always willing to try something new. This cult favorite delivers a load of color without drying your lips out. The secret is vitamin E!
Before applying this color, I gave myself a gentle lip scrub & applied a lip balm. Lighter colors tend to show off dehydrated lips. Try adding a touch of lip balm to the finished product to soften a bit.
PETER THOMAS ROTH Firm Peeling Gel
This gel mask works with all skin types! Great solution for dry/dull complexion as well as pores. To apply you massage it into dry skin & being to feel the gel roll the dead skin off. I like to leave it on for an extra 5 minutes or so to really get it in there. Rinse with warm water & pat dry.
I recommend using this once at week before your bed time moisturizing routine. My skin has never been this soft!
BELIF Moisturizing Eye Bomb
I'm new to the world of eye cream. I love that Sephora has included yet another cream in my sample box this month. This Belif eye cream is so lightweight & absorbent that I use it before my make up routine. It also delivers 26 hours of hydration as well as an instant cooling effect. It really is hard not to buy the full size version of this.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Matte Lipstick in "Rebel Chic"
I could be wrong here but I feel like the Sephora Collection make up doesn't get enough credit. I'm a repeat buyer of their concealer & powder/liquid foundations. Don't let the size of this gal fool you. She packs one powerful punch of color. I use a little on my finger & blend it out from the center of my lips. This helps to create a softer finish.
Created with shea butter, this lip color blends well, masks imperfections, & never dries your lips out. Selling this for $12.50 is a STEAL!
ATELIER COLOGNE in "Vanille Insensée"
This French parfume house creates scents with character. This one in particular isn't your average vanilla scent. It's notes are Lime, Cedrat, Coriander, Jasmine, Vetiver, Oak Moss, Vanilla, Oak Wood, Amber.
Wearing this sophisticated scent had me dreaming of a warm latte & getting lost in a good book on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
