Sephora PLAY! – Box #14 (October 2016)

Sephora PLAY! is now available all over the United States! The “title” of this month’s box is: The Cool Cut. There is a fold-out with a bit about each item on it, and the Play!Pass. The Pass entitles us to one-on-one advice from someone at Sephora (which I think just comes with walking in the door, really), and if you scan the Pass when you are shopping, you are awarded a bonus 50 Beauty Insider points.

Glossybox For October!

After hearing so many good things about Glossybox, I finally broke down and got a three month subscription to see if it lives up to its hype. (The deal advertised on Everything And Nothin’ helped in my decision, too! Hey, buy one and get two boxes free? Sure!)

What came in October?:

Grav3yardgirl’s Swamp Queen Palette!!!

A few years ago I was searching YouTube for… something. I don’t even remember what it was now. In my video wanderings, I came across this young woman with a mass of blonde hair piled on top of her head, and something intrigued me enough to click *play* and watch her video. Within a few minutes I was laughing my hiney off, and suddenly realized she totally reminded me of my little sister. They don’t actually look like one another, but there are mannerisms and facial expressions and just an all-around attitude that made me think of Lexi.

Yeps, that was my introduction to Bunny Meyer, aka Grav3yardgirl. Even Hims knows who she is now, and will reference her. (Believe me, that’s something!)

So when I learned that she was doing a collaboration with Tarte Cosmetics, I set my cap to nabbing those! As of right now, they are showing as sold out on the Tarte website, on Sephora and Ulta sites, and I couldn’t even find it at Macys.com. Ulta stores put their stock out over a week ahead of schedule, so by the time I learned of that, they were already sold out, too. Ohhh, Sephora – you’re my only hope! Friday was launch day at Sephora, so I took my very first Uber ride to the shopping center (more about all that later!), and even though I was there close to opening, I wasn’t the first to get the palette!

Look, the gator has wings! The palette is covered in an old-style wood pattern, with a drawing of a winged alligator (if you subscribe to Bunny’s channel, you give an alligator its wings), and the words “Grav3yardgirl Swamp Queen” and “tarte” stamped in gold foil. The three open edges are all shiny gold, too.

When you open it, the wonderful array of colors are couched in more shiny gold. The large mirror on the lid has this message printed across the very top:

Believe in yourself. Love yourself. Embrace your individuality.

Something we all do well to remember.

As for the colors – I Continue reading “Grav3yardgirl’s Swamp Queen Palette!!!”
