Play! by Sephora - October 2018 Review | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

What is Play by Sephora?: Play! by Sephora is Sephora's own monthly subscription box! Each month will include five deluxe samples plus a fragrance sample (or sometimes a hair sample), all coming from the same brands that Sephora carries! Each box also includes a Play Book (tips and tricks) and a Play Pass (a one-on-one tutorial at Sephora and a bonus 50 points with purchase).

How Much is Play by Sephora?: Play by Sephora is $10/month plus your state's sales tax (if a Sephora is in your store). It ships for free but only to the contiguous 48 states.

Yes, that's a sample of my favorite setting spray. How to make me happy in one easy product.


Info card.


Fresh Soy Face Cleanser ($5.07) - I've received this a couple of times and I keep all of the samples. I always seem to need a cleanser and while this one doesn't take off makeup, it's good for getting rid of any residue of remaining makeup that the first cleanse didn't take off and it leaves your skin feeling nice as well.

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer ($11.25) - This didn't hold up to my holy grail pore primer, so I passed along the majority of this sample to my mom.

YSL Eau'd to Paris (Sample) - This was fruity and earthy and overall, a good perfume. YSL's price tag turns me off but if I were to ever get a super fancy perfume, this might just be it.


Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet Skin (Y205/Alabaster) ($6.33) - I never thought I'd find my favorite foundation in a subscription bag, but I definitely did. I get more compliments when I wear this foundation over any other that I own. It makes my skin look smooth and problem free without being cake-y or makeup-y. It isn't super high coverage (like it says), it's enough to even out my skin but it leaves some freckles. Instant win.

BareMinerals Gen Nude Patent Liquid Lipstick (Everything) ($5.14) - I could tell this was just like every other liquid lipstick I'd owned tone-wise, and I really don't like BareMinerals lipsticks, so I passed it along.

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray ($4.20) - This is my favorite setting spray, I currently have a backup bottle for my backup, so getting this just meant I had to pay for it a little less!


This bag was valued at $31.99, kind of a low value for recent bags, but it's my absolute favorite bag that I received this year from Sephora and in the top five for all bags all year long.

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
