Open Now: Play! by Sephora Beauty Box Subscription


I've been feeling a little under the weather today so apologies for posting this so late. I've been receiving messages from several of you all day (THANK YOU!) letting me know that the subscription to the Play! by Sephora Beauty Box ($10/month) is now open to most everyone who signs up! I don't know if all of the slots are full as of the time of this post, but it won't hurt to try if you've been wanting to sign up for this one!

Try signing up HERE and hopefully you get it. And please come back here and let us know if you got in? Thanks!

If you'd like to see what the first and second boxes in this subscription looked like, click HERE and HERE.

Thanks again to everyone who took the time to let me know about this one! I really appreciate it.

  4. Thanks for including the links to the past boxes! After seeing what they've looked like, I decided to pass. They're not exactly what I was picturing, so I'm glad I didn't pay and then be disappointed! :)

  9. It didn't work for me. I signed up for the waitlist a long while back, but I didn't get an email today. :(

  10. Wait list at 8:20pm EST. :-/ Thanks for the tip, though -- I somehow missed your earlier reviews. I've never done a subscription box but this one seems totally worth it.

  11. Received this when subscribing,

    There are currently no spots available. We've added you to the waitlist and will notify you when a subscription is available.

  12. I got my email this morning as well and was able to sign up this afternoon :)

  13. I could tell something was different with their box reveal video on the website and the packaging for the box in that video looks different. I kind of prefer the old style where they talk directly to the camera and not some random "subscriber". I had a feeling they might be ready for a wider launch! So glad that more people get to enjoy this!

  14. I almost cried cuz I was so excited! But then when I tried to sign up... they said they don't ship to Hawaii... I've already waited months for this... Wouldn't be surprised if they never ship to Hawaii. fml.

  15. Got my email at noon, just signed up successfully now (6pm). Took a year, LOL. Hope it's worth it. Got my Target box today too. The lippie is NOT my colors, sadly.

    1. I know, its a bad color. I thought the same exact thing when I saw it. I'll pass it along to someone.

    2. Did you guys get the bright pink lipstick? I tried to wear it but the pigmentation is lacking and the application suffered as a result. I might try it again, but it just didn't apply or wear well, especially for a color like that. Oh well! It was a good box overall, I thought. :)

      Delete
    3. I got that hideous pink lipstick too. And I agree about the poor pigment/application (I tried it to see if, hope against hope, it *might* be wearable). Definitely not inspiring me to try anything else from this line. What a bummer! (I have got 5 or 6 lipsticks/glosses this candy/Barbie pink shade from Birchbox also. wtf?)

  16. Thx! I saw this and signed up instantly around 8:25. I sent the link to my friends and they were wait listed.

  19. Signed up when I got my email this afternoon.

  21. I got the email and subscribed around 7pm (CST). I'm in Oklahoma City, OK and maybe they opened up posts for Oklahoma

  22. I've been on the wait list since the first day you could sign up for it last year. I got my email this afternoon (but I just now saw it) and so excited, I was able to access to Play page and enter all my info and then when I got to the very last page to submit payment, I got this message: "There are no avialiable shipping groups for current user." They misspelled "available," not me, fyi :\ So I wonder what that means? I've been waiting forever, and I spend quite a lot at Sephora, so I deserve to get this box ... what's the deal?!

    1. Did you ever resolve this? I'm experiencing it now.

    2. I have the same problem right now :( Did you solved this? Thank you

    3. I am having the same problem!!!!

  23. Does anyone know if we signed up today if we will be getting the April one, or do we wait until May? I was so underwhelmed by my Target box.

    ReplyDelete

    1. You will be starting with the May box. The boxes for April have already been charged/shipped. Congrats!!

      Delete
  24. I got the invitation and signed up this afternoon. Just an FYI: you won't be getting the April box, but the May box, and the box comes at the end of the month. So we're talking 5-6 weeks before you see anything (I got this from a Sephora CSR on their 800 number.)

  25. I was able to get a subscription. Yeah! I can't wait.

  26. I just signed up (10:20 Central). I am very excited to see what Sephora has to offer re beauty boxes as I've canceled all my others.

    ReplyDelete
  27. OMG, people are losing their damn minds on the Sephora Beauty Boards over this. I swear someone is going to call the UN to have their management hauled into answer for beauty war crimes! Ladies there are a literally dozens of subscription boxes available. There will be spots open once things settle down.

  28. Weird & disappointing....
    I've been on the wait list forever.
    Thought maybe I missed it & tried to sign up with my yahoo ID that is my Sephora ID as well & got wait listed again.

    I didn't want to miss the notification email since I get so much junk in yahoo mail so I signed up with my hotmail address & was able to get the Sephora Play Subscription!!

    WTF? I was less than $150 from VIB Rouge last year & I couldn't get Sephora Play but I could with a different email & being asked to create a new Sephora ID?

    I'm torn between being pleased I got it & angry that I couldn't get it with the Yahoo address associated with my long standing Sephora account.
    That is just not right....

    1. Spritely, this is exactly what happened to me. I was getting an error message and couldn't sign in/up for it with my Sephora email & password, it wait-listed me again. But when I used my other email and basically created a new BI account, it let me subscribe right then. That is weird.

  29. Worked for me but I have been on the waiting list since this thing rolled out. Whew, finally!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Got in just now! 3:30 am EST!! Thanks G!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I signed up on launch date well, was bummed when I couldn't get in month and after month but when I received email yesterday, I hemmed and hawed , finally said why not? this am, and got right in- good luck to everyone else, still seems hit or miss for certain areas of the country

    ReplyDelete
  32. I got the email about 3pm EST yesterday and signed up about half an hour later. I wonder if they currently have only a limited number of slots available by district or region or however their warehouses are situated.

  33. Worked immediately for me and I have been trying for months. Thanks so much!

  34. I received my email yesterday morning and was able to sign up. Two things I noticed from the intro video - looks like the packaging is changing from past boxes and they've added a makeup bag (that was one of the reasons I cancelled Ipsy...so. many. bags.!) And the booklet detailing the products now seems to be a fold out pamphlet - superficial things, but worth noting, IMHO.

    1. I never need my Ipsy bags (I agree, a new one every month is annoying, I'd rather have a recyclable box), but I like to keep them and put the samples from my subscriptions that I don't use and make my own little bags and give them to friends and family as gifts. They love them! ;)

  35. Just saw this now, wait listed : (

    ReplyDelete
  36. I clicked on your link and was able to sign up around 8:30 this morning. I am in North Carolina. I was on the waitlist for about a month. I never received an email stating that I was off waitlist, so thanks sooo much for posting the link and feel better. The weather is gorgeous here. Enjoy the day!

  37. For people who are not being asked to sign up for the wait list, how did you finally get it to work? Did you keep refreshing the same page or....?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Worked for me, I just now signed up

  39. I just checked your blog and saw this. I was finally able to sign up via your link. This after months of being waitlisted. Thank you so much.
    I wish I could start with April's box, as it looks amazing. I already have Ipsy, and may try one more month and then cancel and just keep Sephora's sub. I do not want too many as the clutter starts to add up. While I did get a few okay things through Ipsy, already after only 2 months with them, I am getting similar items. I already got 2 highlighters, one in my march and one in my April. I got the Tarte lip pencil, but did not like the color on me. I just feel like most of Ipsy' brand of products are really cheap low end products made in china. The brands they send I feel are similar in quality to some of Elf products.,which can be found almost anywhere. They are reasonably priced and if I have $10 to throw around, I can at least pick colors I like from Elf's line for 2 products I will definitely use, as opposed to products picked out for me that will be a hit or miss.
    Anyway thanks for the heads up on Sephora's sub. I enjoy you blog and your sales tips. I really wanted to try Tarte's new rainforest foundation, and with your post on Tartes' F&F discount, I was able to save some money.

  40. Finally! I've been on the waitlist for what feels like forever. So happy I finally was able to subscribe! Thanks, G!

  41. Just an FYI: I don't think it matters if you are a VIB or not. I am not a rewards member, only occasionally shop at Sephora, and I was taken off the waitlist. Guess it depends on the number of spots in your area that are available.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yay! I signed up a while ago and got waitlisted but just tried again and got it! Can't wait for my first box! Thanks!!
