Play! by Sephora Box Vs IPSY Bag June 2016

After getting my first Play! by Sephora Box last month I was asked if I thought it was better than IPSY.

So today I thought I’d share with you my June boxes so you can see them both and then decide which one you prefer for yourself.

First up is the June 2016 Sephora Play! Box.

The theme this month is the Minimalists.




In it I received….


1. Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow it Hair Styler.

This cream adds body and enhances fine to medium hair textures for a laid-back, air-dryed style.

2. BECCA Backlight Priming Filter.

I actually already own the full size of this and I love it!

Look for a review soon.

3. BareMinerals BareSkin Bronzer.

This can be worn alone or over foundation for a sheer, natural looking touch of sun.

4. Benefit They’re Real! Mascara.

I’ve used this in the past and from what I remember it was a decent mascara so I was glad to see it in the box.

5. Tarte Tarteguard 30 Sunscreen Lotion.

I already own and love this stuff! Highly recommend.

6. Tocca Beauty Florence Fragrance Sample.


This Month the IPSY theme was Rebel Rebel.

In the June box I received….



1. Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray.

Create Sexy, Tousled Beach Waves All Year Long.

2. Urban Decay Fireball Eyeshadow.

Such a gorgeous shadow.

3. Sephora Formula X Nail Color in the shade WingWoman.

4. Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser.

5. Seraphine Botanicals Happy Hibiscus Blush.

So which box do I prefer and/or recommend the most?

I have to say my personal favorite has to be the Sephora Play! Box.

I like that you get brands you already know and love, I like that all of the items are available at Sephora and I like the pass that you can turn in for 50 extra Beauty Insider Points.

On the down side though since I already shop so much at Sephora I end up with items I already own or have owned in the past.

Not a big deal though as I can always use them when I run out of an item, for travel or I can pass them onto a friend.

As for IPSY it’s very hit or miss.

I feel like this month was the first good box I’ve gotten in ages so yeah.

Maybe it’s getting better again?


Which box do you like best?

I’d love to hear your opinion.
