The Sephora Play All Star Edition is not a monthly subscription box. The All Star Play! Box is an exclusive limited edition box containing 6 trial sized, curated luxury products from Sephora’s top luxury brands. The All-Star Play! Box ($20) also includes a bonus beauty insider points Play! pass is worth 50 points and can be redeemed in all Sephora stores with any Sephora purchase. This is the first high-end edition Play! box I have purchased. I wanted to experience the Sephora Play All Star Edition because each product has five star reviews and are bona fide Sephora best sellers.
Sephora Play All Star Unboxed
A bag is included in all of my monthly subscription Sephora Play! boxes. It is an adorable cotton drawstring bag with a cute picture on the front. The All Star Play! bag is extra special. It is an awesome holograph with Play! embossed on top, and it has a zipper closure. Wow, I love the holographic material, and it holds quite a bit!
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer is a primer that creates a smooth canvas for makeup application. It blurs imperfections that include redness, pores and wrinkles.
The formula is oil free, therefore it is not greasy. It has a silky, airy, cloud-like texture that glides easily onto the skin.
The Veil has an SPF 15. It is long-wearing therefore your makeup will last all day.
SK 11 Facial Treatment Essence
SK 11 Facial Treatment Essence has an award winning formula that hasn’t changed in 40 years. A pure, lightweight formula, it is made of 90% Pitera, a bio-ingredient rich in vitamins, organic acids, minerals and amino acids. These rich components work together to support natural skin cell renewal, and as a result, Pitera is considered by most, a miracle ingredient.
Essences, in general, are clear liquids that are rich in active ingredients. They are light in consistency and as a result they absorb faster and penetrate further than traditional moisturizers.
Essences work by giving skin maximum hydration, in addition to their brightening and smoothing abilities.
Dior DiorShow Mascara
DiorShow Mascara is enriched with micro-fibers for a lash extension effect.
A Revolutionary patented Air Lock wiping system keeps the mascara fresh, therefore for the last use is the same as the first use.
The XXL Brush is a backstage makeup pro-inspired tool. It builds volume, as it lengthens your lashes. This black mascara is such a cult favorite that women call it their Holy Grail Mascara. Rich in pigments, Tom Ford’s lipstick formula also gives lips a satin finish.
Indian Rose Lipstick has a creamy texture hence a smooth application.
The Tom Ford representative at Nordstrom informed me that the shade Indian Rose is their best-selling Tom Ford shade.Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Rejuvenating Cream

Rejuvenating Cream,improves skin’s elasticity furthermore giving skin intense hydration. Formulated with pure, stabilized Bamboo Sap that supports the natural hyaluronic acid in the skin so that skin can retain its moisture.
The 24 hour time-released formula supports natural cellular turnover. It fights fine lines, wrinkles and dull, uneven skin. The formula also contains antioxidants that protect the skin from free radical damage.
Victor and Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume
Flowerbomb is a romantic explosion of flowers.
Every play! box includes a fragrance sample. Flowerbomb s the first fragrance created by Victor and Rolf.
Top Notes include Bergamot, Tea, and Osmanthus.
Middle Notes include Jasmine African, Orange Flower Freesia, Orchid and Rose.
Base Notes include Amber, Musk, and Patchouli.
I am not a huge fan of floral fragrances. However, I like the Jasmine, Amber and Musk notes that take the sweetness down a notch, and make it more appealing for me.
The Sephora Play! All Star Edition is ten dollars more than the monthly Play! subscription box. It contains Sephora’s high-end products. My favorite All Star’s are the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, The Tom Ford Lipstick, and the Diorshow black mascara. The only products I was unfamiliar with were the SK11 Essence, which I liked, but I already use an Essence by Sulwhasoo, an offshoot brand of AmorePacific. The fragrance was just o.k. The value of the box is $71, therefore the Play! All Star box is a good value.
