December 2017 Play! by Sephora Unboxing

Hey dolls!

Again, I apologize for publishing my posts a bit later than I normally do today. I didn’t wake up feeling too well, but I pushed through it to get this post out to you tonight. I have two more posts for tomorrow that I will be working on tonight. So I hope you’re looking forward to that.

Let’s get on with this post and let me show you what I received in my December box!


Theme: The 2017 Play! List


I really like the bag they sent this month. I love the silky satin fabric bags compared to the cotton ones. Anyway, I think the theme this month is very fitting for the end of the year. I don’t think all the products apply to the theme, but eh.


The bag design was pretty fantastic too. I love the black and champagne color scheme, I thought the phrase “Glam Straight” was also pretty fitting for the theme. Welcome the new year looking and feeling your best, am I right? The design gave “The Great Gatsby” vibes, did anyone else get that or was that just me??

What did you guys think of this month’s bag?

Bag Contents:


  • Stella McCartney Stella Eau de Parfum
  • Caudalie Vine[Activ] Energizing and Smoothing Eye Cream
  • Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1
  • Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyeliner Pen in Black
  • Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick in Fuschia Pink
  • Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Au Naturel

First Impressions:

I always love opening up my Play! by Sephora boxes because I never look at the spoilers, and I like to be surprised by what I receive each month instead of desperately wishing I had received a different box.

I really like the theme this month and I’m glad I got a little bit of everything. I did run out of dry shampoo so it’s nice to get a different one, I can’t wait to try it. Eye creams are always welcome in my cabinet too. I’m excited to try the makeup items, the eyeliner is thin enough to create a fine wing, and the stick eye colour from Laura Mercier is a very pretty shade. I had thought I was receiving a red shade of lipstick because of the box, but it turned out to be fuschia when I opened the bullet. That’s okay, I hope it suits me.

  1. I love the design and color of the bag! I can’t believe that people look at spoilers for their boxes lol I feel like the whole fun of sub boxes is the surprise! I’m like you, I never look!
    I’m glad your happy with your items! I’m sure the lipstick will suit you. 🙂

    1. I love it too! And yeah, the only box I get spoilers from is Ipsy because they have an app, and they release spoilers around the 5th or 6th of the month.
      I really really hope it does, bold pinks tend to look really weird on me or they wash me out.

          1. yes they do, but they often send indie brands rather than the high-end, known brands. or at least, it’s almost kind of rare to get high-end brands in the bags every month.. which is why I like play by sephora, they’re all high-end brands.. I may end up cancelling my ipsy subscription at the one year mark, so they better send me nice things, LOL. some bags are okay, some not so much, which is a problem, a lot of people don’t like the products they get because they often have never heard of the brand, or they don’t get enough high-end brands. BUT, I guess it’s a good thing for indie brands to get a little recognition

          2. Yeah I tried Birchbox for a few months before, hated pretty much everything and I had Ipsy for like a year before. I’ve never tried Sephora Play yet though. 😛

          3. I have some face masks that I have that I bought from Sephora over a year ago…do you think they’re expired or something? I feel bad throwing them away unused.
