I love sampling lip colors, so I was rather pumped when I pulled both of these out of my drawstring bag.

Smashbox – Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Driver’s Seat

I’m not a huge fan of matte lipsticks, but I love this one! The formula is smooth, and the applicator is great!

Unfortunately, this shade is a little too orange for me, so I’m going to look into purchasing this product in a rosier hue!

NUDESTIX – Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Belle

This stick is pretty cool and has a multitude of uses.  It can be used as a lip liner, lipstick, and a cheek color!  I’ve tried it all three ways and think it’s better suited for my lips than my cheeks.

I think this stick has a hint of orange in it just like the lipstick above.  It’s more wearable for me than the Smashbox lip color though.

Too Cool For School – Egg Mellow Cream

I’ve gotten a few freebie, foil packet samples of this product with previous Sephora purchases but haven’t actually given it a try until now.

This is another one of those “do it all” products.  It can be used as a serum, priming moisturizer, eye cream, neck cream, and sleeping mask.  I’ve chosen to use it as an eye cream for now.

The egg extract in this cream certainly gives it a more gooey texture, but I like it.  I don’t know why, but I do!

Skin Inc. – Pure Revival Peel

This skin peel is so cool!  I’ve only used it once, but I already love it!

After rubbing it on my face for a few seconds, I could feel (and see) the dead skin balling up and coming off of my face! I know that sounds disgusting, but it’s also really cool!

I’m definitely going to continue using this product! Who knows, I might even purchase it when my sample runs out!

Verb – Leave-In Mist

I’m a dork and totally thought that this product’s main function was as a leave-in conditioner!  It wasn’t until I watched Sephora’s unboxing video (and used the mist) that I realized that wasn’t actually the case! Whoopsie!!

This leave-in mist’s main function is as a heat protector. I don’t have a travel size heat protecting spray, so this will serve me well the next time I leave town!

TOM FORD – Orchid Soleil

As I’m sure you’ve figured out by now, I’m not a huge fan of most perfume-y smells.  Sadly this perfume doesn’t agree with me.  That’s okay though!  I don’t ever expect to enjoy the perfume samples, so it’s always an exciting surprise when I do.  Perhaps I’ll enjoy next month’s sample!

I think the phrase on this month’s bag is cute, but I don’t necessarily love the execution.

I’ve loved every other bag they’ve given out, so I knew there would be one I didn’t like at some point!

Perhaps I’ll give this baggie to a lipstick-loving friend of mine! 🙂

This wasn’t my favorite month of PLAY! by Sephora, but I still ended up with some great products that I know I’ll use!
