Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer  $39

We just received a primer in the last box so I was a little confused as to why we received another primer in this months box as well. But I’m also really happy that we received this item since color correcting has been such a huge trend in makeup this spring. I’m hoping this primer will not only minimize pores but also brighten my skin as well!


First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser $24

I’m not usually the biggest fan of First Aid Beauty, just because their formulas seem to be too thick for my skin. But I have hopes since this is a cleanser and not a moisturizer.  I was surprised that this was a gel formula, I was expecting more of a cream. Also, not only was this a gel formula, it was red too. I don’t know why I wasn’t expecting that since it is made with red clay. However, the brand still didn’t win me over with this formula. I think this brand just does not work for my skin.

BEAUTYBLENDER Blotterazzi $20

I have the original beauty blender and I love it. I really like how this blotterazzi comes with the liquid blender cleanser. What makes this product different than the original beauty blender is that this is a flat beauty blender and helps remove shine and absorb oil without messing up your makeup!

Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer in Chocolate $30

I have been searching for a bronzer for the longest time now and I’m such a huge fan of Too Faced products. So I’m extremely excited about receiving this product. I’m afraid this color might be a little too dark for me. I personally like to contour lightly with powdered bronzer, so it looks more natural. I didn’t really notice the bronzer too much on my skin but I think thats just because I’m super tan right now. What I like most about this bronzer is that it literally smells like chocolate!

OUAI Wave Spray $26

I’m extremely familiar with OUAI brand and the wave spray. This spray gives your hair an effortless look and adds volume and shine. Unfortunately, wave spray doesn’t do anything for my hair at all. Luckily, my sister will be more than happy to take this off my hands, this product does magic for her crazy curly hair.

Nest Fragrances Citrine $68

I usually hate fragrance samples, but last months sample was such a hit I was excited to see what they had in store for this month. I was so excited to see a Nest fragrance. I absolutely love their candles so I was so excited to try their fragrance. The scent is so beautiful and natural smelling. Another hit for me in the fragrance department!

I’m very excited for my August box and I can’t wait to see what will be in there! What did you think of this months Play! box?
