February 2018 Play! by Sephora Unboxing

Happy Wednesday!

We literally got snow last night and the school district ended up closing so I got to sleep in, yay! I was secretly hoping for that as I’m not feeling it this week. At all! I want nothing more than to stay home and do absolutely nothing which is kind of a stretch for me. There are no days off for this mama.

Anyway, I was out for part of the day yesterday and came back home to do some much needed cleaning so I wasn’t able to get this post up on time, but at least I got to take photos and spend some time editing them. Here’s what I received in this month’s box:

Theme: Feel the Love


Figures it’d be something cheesy like that, right? I’m not feeling the cotton bag and I was hoping they have the satin one this month but oh well.. Also not feeling the design/drawing? Can you tell I’m just not feeling it today? LOL

Bag Contents:


  • Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Rose Gold
  • Sephora Collection Rouge Matte Lipstick in Rebel Chic
  • NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Let’s Go Crazy
  • Peter Thomas Roth FIRMx Peeling Gel
  • Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb
  • Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensee Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume

First Impressions:

Ugh.. where to start? LOL

Ok, this month’s fragrance: HUGE PASS! Do not like sweet smells on perfumes, I prefer floral ones. This one’s top notes are vanilla, coriander and lime.. Whatt?! No.. I didn’t even wear it and just sniffing it straight from the vial gave me a headache! I’ll be giving it away to my father’s wife, maybe she’ll like it.

In my December box I received a caviar stick eye colour from Laura Mercier, only difference is that this one is shimmery whereas the other one was matte. It’s a pretty color but I typically don’t like shimmery eye sticks because I don’t normally reach for them.

Also in my December box, I received a Rouge lipstick from Sephora Collection. The one in the December box was a cream lipstick, this one is matte. BUT, it came damaged! The bullet literally fell out as I was going to swatch it, ugh! And I’m so not happy about literally having to call them to see if they’ll replace it. Why can’t their service be like Ipsy? I just send an email to Ipsy CS with a photo of the damaged product and they reply within 24 hours and send me a new one… Fingers crossed that they replace it.

Another thing I’m not completely excited about is getting not one, but TWO LIPSTICKS in this month’s box. I have been getting lipsticks nearly every month in my subscriptions I feel so overwhelmed with how fast my lipstick collection has grown these past few months. On the bright side, it’s a NARS lipstick and I haven’t seen this brand in my boxes since I subscribed BUT I do own two mini samples (one velvet, one satin) and they’re not the easiest pencils to sharpen, which is truly the only downside lol.

The only two things I’m truly excited about is SKINCARE! Peter Thomas Roth FIRMx Peeling Gel sounds soo good I can’t wait to use it. And this is the second time I get a product from Belif. I got their Aqua Bomb in my September box and I LOVED IT so I have high hopes for this eye cream–even though I’ve been getting lots of eye creams from Sephora.

I’m sorry this post was a little ranty. I’m pretty sure my period is coming any day now, lol. But for some reason I expected this month’s box to be a little better but I was a little disappointed. Definitely not my favorite box so far but hopefully the products prove me wrong.

What did you guys get in your box?
Are you happy with the products received?

    1. LOL I don’t care much for chocolate anymore, though I do indulge every once in a while (more like once every couple months). What I do like and crave most often when I’m on my period is fresh fruits and LOADS of carbs, potatoes, pasta, bread LOL

  1. I haven’t even gotten my Sephora box yet. 😦 I have gotten that Nars lipstick before somewhere, somehow lol I think even in that same color. I didn’t even know you could sharpen them again lol. Sorry you weren’t too happy with your products but hopefully they prove you wrong. 😉

    1. Awh, you’ll get it soon, don’t worry. I think at one point I got mine nearly at the end of the month because they ship their boxes out in the middle of the month, which is kinda weird.. Was it in their freebies you get for your birthday?
      Yeah, I had to look it up and they even have a special sharpener but I was like, no. I’m not buying an expensive sharpener for these pencils no matter how good it is lol.
      I do hope I like them! Time will only tell LOL

  2. The same thing happened to me with that Sephora Collection lipstick, only mine must’ve come loose during shipping. I opened it up and it just popped out, with the tip smashed. And you’re pretty lucky with your Nars lipstick – I got a second Sephora Collection lippie.

    1. Idk what I’m gonna do about the damaged lipstick. The tip of mine was smashed too. I haven’t called and not sure if I should even bother since they don’t really seem to do refunds but I guess I can ask anyway.
      What really? Two Sephora lipsticks? That would be annoying. Are they at least different formulas?

      1. One‘s a liquid lip, so they‘re both matte. I do actually like the other one, and would have loved to finally get a cream formula gron them. I‘m gonna rant even more than you in my review.
