Sephora Collection – Rouge Shine Lipstick in Love Spell

Lip products are one of my favorite things to sample, so I was very excited when I pulled this out of the fabric bag!

Love Spell is a very light, natural pink color.Β  I think it might be a little too natural for me though.Β  When applied, I can’t see much difference between this lip color and my lips!Β  Maybe I’m not applying enough or maybe this just isn’t lip color for me!Β  We will see!

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Gel

I know tons of people are all about brows right now, but I’m not one of them. I don’t actually do anything to my eyebrows except pluck them.

My sister-in-law has been wanting to try some Anastasia products, so I knew she’d want to give this gel a try.Β  I gave it to her several days ago, and she was so excited!Β  I’m sure she’ll get way more use out of it than I would have.

Ole Henriksen – Sheer Transformation

I received some Ole Henriksen makeup wipes several years ago in another subscription service, but unfortunately, they were so strongly scented that I couldn’t use them.

Thankfully, this moisturizer is unscented, and I like it quite a bit. It’s lightweight, and I have no worries about it irritating my skin.Β  That’s always a plus!

Kat Von D – Tattoo Liner in Trooper

As a mentioned last month, I’m not a big eye liner user.

I love the idea of liquid liners, but I’m just to shaky and unpredictable to be trusted with them.Β  I actually have a few liquid liners, and when I’m feeling really brave, I do bring them out and give them a whirl.Β  That doesn’t happen often though!

Like the Anastasia product above, I gave this liner to my sister-in law!Β  She tried it out right away.Β  She wasn’t in love with the thickness though.Β  She would’ve preferred a little thicker of a line from the get go.Β  However, she did love how much control she had over the application!

Atelier Cologne – Sud Magnolia

This is the second Atelier Cologne I’ve received since subscribing to PLAY! in May.Β  I like the brand and the scents, but I’m surprised that they repeated a brand so soon.

I love that they include a postcard with their fragrance.Β  That really adds a little something to the product and packaging!

Living Proof – Perfect Hair Day Night Cap Overnight Perfector

I’ve really been enjoying new hair products recently, so I was pretty excited when I saw this in my box.Β  One huge plus to this product is that you can use it with damp hair.Β  I shower at night, so I don’t like products that require you to wash them off/out in the morning!

Perfect Hair Day reminds me quite a bit of Don’t Despair! Repair, which I’ve now received in both POPSUGAR and PLAY!Β  I love Don’t Despair! Repair, so I’m quite alright with the products being similar!

I always look forward to the drawstring bag each month!Β  I love every new design!

The little, pink lipstick is just too cute! πŸ™‚

I did end up giving away two of this month’s products, but I’m okay with that!Β  I really like the products that I’m left with!

If you haven’t noticed, I am a little particular about some things, so I do end up giving quite a few subscription box items away every few months!Β  My friends always enjoy it when I declutter! πŸ™‚
