The Gleam Team: March's Play! By Sephora Box
Product: Verb Ghost Oil
Description: Ghost Oil™ features an integrated moringa oil blend that coats the hair shaft with essential nutrients. This transparent oil prevents color change to lighter hair colors, naturally smooths frizz, and delivers a radiant shine to all hair types.
My Take: This is one of my favorite Play! By Sephora ever! This oil is amazing. I actually got the box delivered as I was twisting my hair and I used it on my hair. It’s a mix of argan and moringa oil it’s very lightweight and spreadable but kept my ends moisturized.
Product: GLAMGLOW GLOWSTARTER™ Mega Illuminating Moisturizer
Description: A hydrating, super-charged cream with iridescent illuminating pearl particles to blur, reflect, and enhance your complexion for an instant luminous finish. Added illuminating pearl particles help make you look instantly more radiant, blurring and reflecting light, so that all lighting is good lighting. Skin-moisture balance is restored by a combination of emollients including jojoba oil, shea butter, and ceramides, while a special skin-conditioning lipid complex is designed to help infuse skin with optimal nourishment for a luminous finish.
My Take: I didn’t even know glamglow made moisturizers. It goes on super smooth and this one smells so good! Kinda like candy. And it leaves a soft glow for that lit look.
Product: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original
Description: This primer keeps your eyeshadow crease-free while making color more vibrant and providing a smoother application. Formulated with polymer technology, it fills in any imperfections on the skin’s surface, prepping lids for all-day wear. It glides on smoothly, blends beautifully on all skin tones, and dries on invisibly.
My Take: I swear by this eyeshadow potion. I have super oily lids and this keeps my (rarely worn) eyeshadow and eyeliner on. The packaging is cool because it’s a squeeze tube that has a doe foot applicator as well.
Product: Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter
Description: Benefit’s bestselling highlighter turns up the wattage with a delicate, champagne glow and soft-focus effect. Its smooth application and luminous sheen switches on the "wow" factor for any complexion. Apply it to cheeks and browbones, then sculpt the complexion with the soft-glow blender to achieve the perfect gleam.
My Take: I really like this color and finish of this product, but I don’t really get the whole stick formula highlighter thing. I’m going to mess up the rest of my makeup fooling around with applying a stick product to my face right? Applying it to my browbone might work though. I just started applying a brow highlight after (finally) getting my ABH browdip and this finish would be perfect, because it’s creamy, spread evenly and has the right amount of shine.
Product: Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm
Description: The first ever antiaging skin care finisher and makeup primer in one. This creamy, whipped, lightweight formula finishes both your skin care and makeup routine for a smooth, long-lasting, radiant glow. Makeup glides on seamlessly while the subtle glow awakens the complexion and softly sculpts the face with luminous light. It’s formulated with natural antiaging powerhouse ingredients that instantly hydrate, plump, and smooth for beautiful, smooth skin.
My Take: I wasn’t exactly sure what this was. Lol. But this is both a primer and a finisher. So you could either use this under or over makeup, or all on it’s own. Like the other products in this box, it gives a slight glow. This one is shimmery pink but dries clear with some slight glitter particles.
Product: Atelier Cologne Clémentine California Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume
Description: Notes: Clementine, Mandarin, Juniper Berries, Star Anise, Sichuan Pepper, Basilica, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Cypress. Style: Fruity. Green. Sweet.
My Take: I almost like this. It’s a warm, citrusy scent just slightly too strong. I do like citrusy scents, but I actually don’t wear them often as top notes. So I might try this and hopefully, it thins out after application.
