It's time to dive into another PLAY! by Sephora unboxing! February's theme was "The Soft Side," very fitting for the month of love, I think. This month was all about showing natural beauty, so let's jump into the products that can help you look radiant this month.
CLINIQUE Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturizer
First up this month was the CLINIQUE Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturizer ($29.50). I love the CLINIQUE Pep-Start Eye Cream ($26.50), so I'm excited to try another product from the Pep-Start line. This moisturizer/primer claims to instantly blur imperfections while providing all-day hydration. It can also be applied over your makeup for quick fixes throughout the day. I'll probably be trying this as a primer since I'm too obsessed with my Youth to the People moisturizer right now to let that one go.
Too Face Lip Injection Glossy in Milkshake
This sheer tinted gloss claims to visibly plump lips instantly while also acting as a sort of lip balm and softening your lips all the time. I've heard that Too Faced's Lip Injection Glossy ($22) can tingle on the lips but isn't as strong as the Lip Injection Extreme. It recommends trying it every day for 30 days to see an improvement of the softness of your lips, so I guess that's what I will do starting today. I will report back.
tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue in Nude
The next thing in the box was another lip product. The tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue ($19) is a sheer lip balm with that hydrates and nurtures lips with a soft natural tint. Some of its ingredients include algae and marine flower extract, coconut oil, and vitamin E. It's vegan-friendly which is pretty cool as well. We'll see if this lip balm can give my beloved Glossier Balm dotcom ($12) a run for its money.
SEPHORA COLLECTION LashCraft Length & Volume Mascara
I love that Sephora decided to include a product from its own collection in this month's box. I'm always wanting to try their products but I'm never sure which ones are worth my precious dollars. SEPHORA COLLECTION's nylon-infused mascara ($12) seems to be right up my alley, though, with both lengthening and volumizing effects. Maybe I've just found my new go-to mascara.
I'll start by saying that I probably won't like this perfume. It's warm and spicy fragrance comes from notes of caramel, vanilla, benzion, and white musk. I haven't smelled it yet, but I'm sure Prada CANDY ($90, 1.7 oz) really does smell like candy.
Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream
I've actually tried this product before and I can tell you that I like it. Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream ($30) is infused with coffee beans, ginseng root, and magnolia extract to calm redness, fight aging, and energize your eyes. All things that I definitely need being a very tired college student.
What are you guys excited to try in this month's box? Let me know in the comments!
