Full size $49
A hydrating, super-charged cream with iridescent illuminating pearl particles to blur, reflect, and enhance your complexion for an instant luminous finish.
IcanGWP Review: This light pink moisturizer has a yummy creamsicle scent – that can be overpowering. The texture is incredibly light, almost like a liquid. The ingredients are also fantastic. It might not be hydrating enough for dry winter months. You will see a slight sheen on skin where it’s applied and that should be good for a dewy look. This shade, Nude Glow, has a gold-hued highlighter that is stunning and adds glowing from within in a second. I also found out that this moisturizer-highlighter works best on top of my foundation. When I applied it under my foundation, it looks too natural.
Full size $36
The first ever anti-aging 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.
IcanGWP Review: Josie Maran’s skincare is among the brand’s better-known offerings, but its new multitasking products are noteworthy as well—particularly its Surreal Skin Argan Finish Balm. This unique 2-in-1 moisturizer-primer has a cushy and bouncy mousse texture. It’s so incredibly thin, silky and airy. The balm is not tinted and will not add any glow. It feels like a powder when applied and has a soft matte finish. The formula is really gentle – absolutely no fragrance in any form. No nasty ingredients that will hurt you – it really is an outstanding formula and deserves a big applause from sensitive skin. It is not tacky or greasy at all. It’s also long lasting.
The average review on the Sephora site is 3.8. I think it is due to the misleading product description. There’s a tiny amount of mica so not dewy whatsoever.
Here’s the swatch:
As a primer, there is a good amount of silicone but it is not like ten silicone ingredients plus tons of nasty stuff to really make your face look ‘perfecto’ like most primers do. It won’t completely fill and blur all imperfections but if you are looking for a gentle moisturizer that can help prep your skin, this is the one. Good to give your skin a break from primer and let it breathe some days. If you are like me, combination skin and struggle trying to get a good primer that works and will not clog your pores, I can’t tell you yet, it’s too soon. LOL! But there’s a slight exfoliant in this product, very smart like my Cover FX primer does.
Full size $30
A champagne cream-to-powder highlighter. Benefit’s bestselling highlighter turns up the wattage with a delicate, champagne glow and soft-focus effect.
IcanGWP: Look at the size of this deluxe sample from Benefit! This product offers a gorgeous alternative to pressed powder highlighters. The cream-to-powder formula pairs and blends well with all types of foundation including powders. Its pearlized (neutral) peach is so versatile. I tried applying it with fingers and brush, both are not recommended. I like to swipe it directly on my face to add spot glow. It’s subtle and beautiful. Overall a great product! The downside is that the beautiful glow doesn’t last too long and rubs off easily. Also, if you have very oily or breakout-prone skin, it may exacerbate both concerns due to the thickeners it contains. The average review is 4.3.
Full size $29
A spray to give hair instant volume and texture that’s almost as light as air for big, lasting results. This product is an Allure Best of Beauty award winner 2016.
Full size $30
A long-lasting, waterproof eye shadow that glides on easy like a stroke of genius. Shade, define, smoke up, and highlight your eyes with this do-it-all eye shadow formula. It glides onto your lids tug-free and is completely waterproof, so it can play as rough as you do.
IcanGWP Review: This eyeshadow will make everybody’s eyes look fantastic. The shade golden pink has a warm rose gold metallic finish. The gold sparkles are ultra fine and reflect light gorgeously. I use it without eye primer and it stays in place around 4-5 hours. It sadly runs into my eye. I recommend using eye primer to prep it. The matte shade stayed put way better. I use my finger to blend and it has a great finish. This can also be used as a strobing product at the inner corner of the eye, and other high points of your face.
Here’s the swatch:
Full size $105
This unique floral composition plunges into an infusion of rose petals. Fresh notes of verbena softened by freesia unveil a tender rose heart enlightened by cherry blossoms and warmed with soft woods for a soft and feminine signature.
Notes: Lemon Essence, Absolute Verbena, Freesia, Rose, Cherry Blossom, White Cedar Essence, Bitter Almond, Amber.
The Sephora Play March Box is a great way to try new highlighters and new shades. With proper understanding of the products in this box and your face/skin, it will leave your skin looking like an angel surrounded by a divine halo, for $10! The Josie Maran and Glamglow items are my favorites, I encourage you to try them in a store while you can. I don’t think you can be disappointed. For only $10, I am pleasantly surprised how much I like this box.
