Blogmas Day 13: December Sephora Play

Finals week is kicking my butt you guys. I'm running low on energy and sleep and I think I'm getting sick. So when I came home to the December Sephora Play box I basically jumped up and down like a little girl in a candy shop. It was just what I needed to give me a little burst of happiness, and luckily what I found inside made my day even better!

Makeup Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer

I was excited to see a product by Makeup Forever included in this month's box. I'm completely obsessed with their foundations and I've heard very good things about this primer as well. The little informative sheet included with the box describes this primer as "a silky primer that helps makeup last longer while the targeted formula balances skin's texture, resulting in a smoother, more even look."

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

When I think of setting sprays this one immediately comes to mind. But, because of its price tag I've never given it a try.  Until now! This sample is actually a pretty decent size and I can't wait to try it out! It's described as a "weightless setting spray that prevents makeup from fading, smudging and settling into fine lines for a touch-up free finish."

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara

Seriously, I am SO impressed with the brands included in this month's box! BOBBI BROWN! I've never tried anything by this brand because, as Kathleen Lights would say, "das essspensive"! So yes I'm pretty pumped about this product as well. It's described as "jet black, kohl-pigmented mascara that delivers high-impact volume with a smudge-free formula."

Dry Bar Detox Dry Shampoo

When I was shopping around the Sephora app the other day I actually spent a lot of time scrolling through the Dry Bar line. I've been spending a lot more time on my hair these days and dry shampoos are  an essential at this point! I can't wait to try more higher end products like this one! This dry shampoo is a "lightweight dry shampoo that extends the life of blowouts by absorbing oils, adding body and leaving hair feeling fresh and clean."

Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain

I gotta be honest. I was super disappointed with this product out of everything in the box! I loved everything else, they were all nice sizes, but this one is too tiny! I mean it is super cute, but come on Sephora, it's your own brand! Make it bigger! Anyway, besides that little flaw this actual product is very nice. I have several other cream lip stains by Sephora Collection and they are som of my favorite liquid lipsticks on the market! Highly recommend!

I will update soon with my thoughts on the products in this box. Overall I was really impressed. This was definitely my favorite box I have received so far. I LOVE the bag and will definitely use it a lot more than the others, plus the products were all very high end and good sizes (besides the lip stain!!).

I hope everyone's having a great week!
