I received a notification that Nylon is no longer offering their monthly box and I am unsure if I will be receiving a box for December or not! This somewhat inspired me to cancel all of my subscription boxes, I have 3 shoe boxes of samples to use up and though I love getting the little beauty bags, it seems wasteful. I am also at a point where I know what my skin needs, I know what kind of makeup I like and I don’t get as much joy out of new things to try. I will definitely keep an eye out for luxe boxes and limited edition boxes but I am sampled out! I don’t know what my Wednesday posts will become but lets get to this month’s Play!
The theme this month was Glam Straight and the bag is a champagne satin drawstring with an old-Hollywood feel. I have to say though, I don’t think there was a place for shitty puns in old-Hollywood.
Smashbox Cover Shot Eyeshadow Duo in Golden Hour – I have been so looking forward to trying some Smashbox shadows, not that I had any idea that I was receiving this little duo but I was super excited to see this in the bag. Sadly, it is broken but the shades look really lovely – I will see if I can make it work. This would be a great little duo, add in a little glitter and I think you could get a nice look. I have read nothing but good things about their shadows, no idea why I haven’t gone for them yet!
Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen – Another liquid, black liner that I will never use,
Makeup Forever Artist Rouge Lipstick in Hot Red – I think that I received this as a sample with an order already but it is nice a colour and the formula is comfortable. It isn’t a shade that I would reach for very often so good thing it is a sample!
Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream – I’ve used this product before and think it is effective for helping really dry skin but I don’t think it lives up to all of the claims. It is supposed to help with acne, redness and damaged skin. I just use it around my mouth where my mouth can crack in the winter and it helps but doesn’t totally remedy this. It is also very oily and it can clog pores so I use it sparingly. I already own a full-tube and this will be a gift-away!
Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1 – I have no idea what this product is, I think that it is akin to a dry shampoo? That ship has sailed for me and this will be a gift-away.
Atelier Cologne Clementine California – Gag.
That is it for my last Play! bag, it wasn’t the best nor was it the worst. What did you get in your bag?
Thanks for stopping by <3
