The September Play! by Sephora Bag was a good one, and October 2017 even better. Sephora had broken a string of meh monthly bags.
November 2017, IMHO, brings me back to another meh bag. Though there are a couple of things I like and I’m glad I got to try, they’re nothing to shout from the mountaintops about.
I’m never sure of the theme since Sephora Play always seems to have two of them. The tagline on the white cotton bag this month is, “It’s Me O’clock”.
Here’s what came in my bag:
- Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara
- Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum
- Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gel, Perfect Nude
- Origins Clear Improvements Active Charcoal Masque to Clear Pores
- MoroccanOil Treatment Oil
- My Burberry, Blush EDP
I can’t say I was truly excited about anything in this bag. I am glad to get the Marc Jacobs Major Volume Mascara, though I probably have about a million mascaras waiting in the wings. I like Caudalie skincare, and I can always use a travel size tube of a skin hydrating serum. I have a ton of hair oil, but I like the MoroccanOil scent so that’s nice. I have no use for a charcoal mask. What I ended up liking the most so far is the Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gel, a wonderful lipgloss that makes my dry lips feel terrific. It has a caramel scent, but it goes away once it’s on my lips. As usual, the perfume sample doesn’t suit me.
I am beginning to want to ditch Sephora Play and subscribe to Boxycharm, but Boxycharm is $20/month so I would have to ditch Ipsy too, and I still like Ipsy. What to do? Guess I’ll see what’s in this month’s Ipsy bag 🙂
Do you subscribe to Sephora Play? If so, what did you get? Were you happy with the November bag?
