Play! by Sephora – June 2018 Review

Hi, guys! Welcome to todays post where we are talking all about Play! by Sephora’s June box and what my thoughts are on the products. I have to say, I’ve really loved this box and almost every item in it. On to the reviews!

P.S. July’s unboxing will probably be up around this time next week.

The Products:

COVER FX – Perfect Setting Powder in Light Translucent, $35.00 USD

playbysephorajune2018emilyburnsmuacoverfx

From Sephora.com

“What it is:
An ultra-translucent, loose powder that sets makeup for all-day wear while imparting a soft-focus, airbrushed finish.

What it does:
This ultra-lightweight loose setting powder is consciously formulated without talc for an incredibly translucent finish that sets makeup for all-day wear. It minimizes transfer without adding any color to the skin or overpowering your foundation finish. Ideal for the baking makeup technique, this setting powder is formulated with light-diffusing particles that blur and smooth for a skin perfecting airbrushed effect that doesn’t look chalky or dry. It features universal shades for a translucent finish on all skin tones.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

What else you need to know:
This product is vegan, clinically-tested, and free of talc, fragrance, gluten, and mineral oil.”

I really like this powder! I like it a lot for setting the under eyes. I think it adds a bit more coverage and prevents creasing. It also made my concealer last longer. I’m not blown away by this powder, but I like it a lot and I’m happy I recived it. Would I buy the full size? Jury’s still out.

Too Faced – Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick in Queen B (matte soft mauve), $21.00 USD.

From Sephora.com:

“What it is:
A lightweight, long-wearing liquified matte lipstick with a creamy and matte, color-rich formula.

What it does:
Matte color gets a makeover. Too Faced’s innovative formula glides onto lips like a gloss but dries to an ultra-matte, opaque finish. Melted Matte ensures that your lip color always looks rich, full, and kissable—and is never dry, shriveled, or cracked. The doe-foot applicator comfortably coats lips in bursts of intense, vivid matte color that lasts for hours. It’s infused with Volulip for a no-sting plumping and smoothing effect and antioxidant-rich avocado oil and vitamin E to moisturize, while hyaluronic filling spheres smooth the look of lip lines. It comfortably coats lips with a wash of intense, high-impact, super-saturated color that lasts for hours.”

I am in love with this lipstick. It’s so good. The formula is very melted (as the name suggests). It applies easily and wears well, it doesn’t make your lips look dry like some liquid lips. I wouldn’t say that it is longwearing or transfer proof but it’s very nice. The color is really lovely and it goes with many looks.

Living Proof – No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream, $38.00 USD

playbysephorajune2018emilyburnsmualivingproof

From Sephora.com:

“What it is:
A styling cream that smooths, conditions, and eliminates frizz by blocking humidity without weighing hair down.

Key benefits:
– Weightlessly blocks humidity
– Smooths, conditions, and eliminates frizz by blocking humidity without weighing hair down
– Ideal for medium to thick frizzy hair

If you want to know more…
When used as part of the No Frizz System, No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream smooths, conditions, and eliminates frizz by blocking humidity without weighing hair down. Powered by Living Proof’s patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA), the No Frizz System weightlessly blocks humidity, smooths hair texture so strands are left polished and frictionless. Ideal for medium-to-thick hair, it nourishes and conditions, leaving hair feeling moisturized. “

I’ve only used this twice but so far it has really helped my frizz. It doesn’t weigh down my hair, it makes my curls look more curly and less frizzy. I’ve really enjoyed using it and I’m looking forward to using it more. If you’re looking for an anti frizz product this is definitely worth trying.

CLINIQUE – Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips, $19.00 USD

playbysephorajune2018emilyburnsmuaclinique

From Sephora.com:

“What it is:
A go-to makeup remover that gently erases long-wearing eye and lip makeup without tugging skin.

What it does:
This eye and lip makeup remover leaves nothing behind. It effortlessly dissolves long-wearing makeup, even waterproof mascara. This gentle formula is tug-free, non-irritating, and non-stinging.”

I’m not the biggest fan of this product. It’s really good for removing makeup but it leaves behind an oily residue and makes my skin feel gross. I’ve tried other makeup removers like this that are less expensive.

Sol de Janeiro – Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, $45.00 USD

playbysephorajune2018emilyburnsmuabumbumcream

From Sephora.com:

“What it is:
A fast-absorbing body cream that helps tighten and smooth the look of skin.

Solutions for:
– Dryness
– Dullness and uneven texture
– Loss of firmness and elasticity”

I LOVE this cream! It smells amazing and it is so moisturizing. It absorbs fast, it’s not greasy, it’s so good. The scent is very long wearing. I applied this to my hands before going to bed last night (10pm-ish) and I can still smell it on my hands right now (1pm). All that being said, I really love this cream, but I think it’s expensive for what it is. It’s worth it, but it is pretty expensive.

  1. There was a 50% off on the Too Faced melted lipproducts at my local Sephora, so of course I had to take a look. But when I went to look all there was left, what all the shades I had no interest in :/ I wish they had the shade that you have
