I hope you all are having a great week so far! Mine is shaping up to be a pretty good one! Starting it off with a PLAY! by Sephora review is always fun!

Benefit Cosmetics – Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel
Y’all have probably figured out by now that I’m a lover of Benefit Cosmetics. I use their moisturizer every single day and one of their primers several days a week.
You probably also know that I don’t do much (anything actually) with my eyebrows. I have thick brows, so I never feel the need to fill them. Even if I wanted to, this shade of brow gel is a little too dark for me.
My sister-in-law has darker hair, so I’m going to see if she’d like to give this product a try!
stila – Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner
Another thing I’m sure you’ve noticed is that I rarely wear eye liner. I have the hardest time applying it, so I usually only wear it for special events.
My mom uses this particular eye liner every day, so she’s happy to take this sample off my hands!
DevaCurl – Melt Into Moisture Match Butter Conditioning Mask
One thing I do love? Hair masks! I discovered my love of hair masks in a POPSUGAR Must Have box many moons ago!
Because of their brand name (devaCURL), I always thought that all their products were for curly-haired girls. As a straight-haired curl, I don’t have much use for curly products.
I am happy (ECSTATIC, actually) to report that this hair mask is INCREDIBLE!! I’ve used it twice now and have been so impressed with the results. One of my good friends told me that my hair looked “the best she’d ever seen it” after I used this mask!
I worked a quarter-size amount into my hair after shampooing. I went about my shower (about seven minutes) and then rinsed and combed it through. I slept with it wet and brushed it the next morning. TA-DA! The best hair ever!
I will definitely be purchasing a full-size bottle once this sample is empty.
Laura Mercier – Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Happy
Another thing I love? Lipstick! There’s just something about lip color!
I’m not sure if you can see it, but this lipstick has tiny shimmers in it. That scared me a little at first. I don’t particularly love glitter on my lips. However, once the lipstick is applied, you can’t really see the glitter! Woohoo!! That makes me very happy! 😉
“Happy” is a warm fuschia color that’s quite fun! It’s bright, but I like it! I think this color is better suited for spring/summer instead of winter/fall though.
belif – The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb
One of my friends really likes this cream, so I was excited to give it a try. I’m always wary of breaking out when I try new moisturizers. Thankfully, this one agreed with my skin!
Although it agreed with me, there’s nothing super exciting about it for me. There’s nothing bad about the product. I just prefer my Benefit moisturizer.
Giorgio Armani – Acque di Gioia
Another month. Another fragrance sample.
The drawstring bag for September is super fancy and satiny. It’s a pretty color too! My sister-in-law took the last satiny bag, so maybe I’ll manage to hang on to this one for a bit! 🙂
September was a decent month for me! The lipstick is great, and I LOVE the hair mask!
