Play! by Sephora September 2016 Box


Anastasia Brow Gel ($22). This clear brow gel is no stranger to me. I have been using it for years and its soothing chamomile formula always does a great job keeping my brows in place without making them stiff.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper ($20). Similar to my favorite K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner (even the name!) this liquid eyeliner comes with a felt-tip applicator that allows you to draw on the thinnest to thickest line. The formula also dried down to a highly-pigmented, waterproof, matte black color that stayed on over 12 hours without fading or budging. Thumbs up!

SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Shine Lipstick in Love Spell ($12.50). With its Hydra-Comfort complex blend of moisturizing oils, antioxidiant vitamin E, clear pigments and carnauba wax, this moisturizing lipstick ensures optimal comfort and protection for your lips, while giving a dazzling, wet-lip look. The color, a medium pink, is also perfect against my NC20 skintone.

Dr. Jart+ Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer ($36). Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, this looked like a thick silicone primer out of the tube but magically turned into lightweight, clear water droplets the second I massaged it onto my face. My dehydrated combination skin felt instantly drenched and the effect lasted all day too!

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day® Night Cap Overnight Perfector ($28). An overnight treatment that contains an amino acid blend, this kept my hair shiny and bouncy for days, though my ends remained dry.

Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Verte ($95). With notes of Lily of the Valley, Jasmine Absolute, Mandarin, Neroli Oil, Dewey Green Accord, Cedarwood, Sandalwood and Musk, this was a tad too strong for my taste.
