Beauty Talk: August Sephora Play! Box

Success on Stilettos, a Cincinnati fashion and beauty blog; Sephora Play! box review

Another month, another beauty box from Sephora Play! (again, this post is not sponsored, I just love sharing new-to-me beauty products). You can catch my previous posts here from July and June.

This month’s box was exclusively products that were new to me. Most months, I’m super excited by at least 2 of the products, but this month was a bit meh.

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream – Probably the product I was most excited to try, yet also most skeptical about. I started using this on the backs of my legs and booty, and immediately love the smell and the glow it provides (super subtle, but definitely enough to make you feel like a Brazilian babe!). Does it actually firm? Jury’s still out on that one, but it feels really smoothing as you put it on.

Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Creme– This concealer was a bit too thin for me to use on a spot treatment (I use this Tarte concealer for that) but would probably work well as an undereye concealer if you like something with a thinner consistency.

Too Faced Mascara Melt Off Waterproof Mascara Remover – I admittedly don’t generally wear waterproof mascara, but this is definitely an interesting concept. It comes out as a thicker oil on the wand. Definitely helps take off mascara without having to pull on your lashes with a cotton pad. (Overall, meh, I’ll probably stick to my liquid remover.)

Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Perfume Duo – My little secret is that rather than buy full-size bottles of perfume anymore, I have a small jar of samples that I rotate through. I liked both of these scents, they’re about what you’d expect. ‘Saint’ is a lighter, more floral scent while ‘Sinner’ is a darker, more masculine.

Micro Beauty Blender – Admittedly, I don’t use beauty bledner’s much, but the suggested use for this little guy is as a corrector, which I can totally get behind. Wet it, ring it out and you can use it to correct makeup missteps while creating that perfectly sculpted face.
