February 2017 Play! by Sephora Review

How cute is this bag?! Definitely the best one I've seen from Sephora so far.
Clinique Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturizer, $4.16 [$29.50 for 1.7 oz; sample size: 0.24 oz]
This moisturizer can be used both at night or in the morning before make-up where it doubles as a primer.  It had the slightest blurring effect, but it definitely wasn't great for my skin type.

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue in Nude, $6.65 [$19.00 for 0.1 oz; sample size: 0.035 oz]
This is such a luxurious lip balm. It has a minty fragrance and a smooth application with a shiny finish. It's not as sticky as lip gloss, but it is slightly on the sticky side with the slightest touch of color.  It does come in a couple of other shades, and I could see myself purchasing Rose for a slightly darker flush of color.  Overall, major thumbs up and the packaging is gorgeous.

Prada Candy, $2.65 [$90.00 for 1.7 oz; sample size: 0.05 oz]
With a name like "Candy", I expected this to be a much sweeter fragrance than it was. It's more of a sophisticated 'sweet' with gentle notes of floral. Overall, I liked it, but it's definitely fading by midday.

Too Faced Lip Injection Glossy in Milkshake, $4.71 [$22.00 for 0.14 oz; sample size: 0.03 oz]
This is a lip plumping gloss, and you definitely feel the tingle within a minute or two. Milkshake is a nude creamy shade, and it comes across as kind of a pearl color. I think it is best layered with another lippie color. The biggest issue is it is a rather sticky lip gloss.  Also, I'm not sure I really noticed any plumping effects.

Sephora Collection LashCraft Length & Volume Mascara, $3.42 [$12.00 for 0.33 oz; sample size: .094 oz]
The mascara wand for this sample is teeny, so it was a little awkward to apply. Overall, it was a good product with minimal clumping and decent volume.  Great value, too!

Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream, $10.20 [$30.00 for 0.5 oz; sample size: 0.17 oz]
This eye cream has a slight iridescence to it. It absorbs fairly easily, and I didn't have any issues when applying make-up afterwards.

Total Value: $31.79
