Sephora PLAY! October 2016

Hello and Happy Monday!

Though I am taking a blogging break - and missing it! - I do want to keep sharing my Sephora PLAY! boxes and monthly favorites. Today I have a review of my, admittedly, least favorite PLAY! box to date.

Group shot:

First, here is the bag. I hate the bags. The boxes were the best. Ipsy's reusable cosmetic bags are fine. THESE bags are lame.

This month there were quite a few different boxes. In my box, I got TWO lippies. In pretty similar colors! I actually like both, but they are so similar that I am truly bewildered that box were in the same month's box.

Swatches!  The Smashbox is on top, it is an Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick. I forget the color name, I'm sorry! And it doesn't say on my Sephora account, which is odd. This has an incredibly comfortable feel and wear, I did enjoy it.

NudeStix Intense Lip and Cheek pencil is in the middle and on bottom, to see it lined versus a thicker swatch. This is also very comfortable and I did enjoy it, as well.

Next is the Verb Leave-In Mist for hair. This smells nice but is not something I'd purchase from Sephora.

The one item that I was looking forward to most in box previews that I saw was the All In One Egg Mellow Cream, a K Beauty multi-tasker to moisturize and prime. The texture is amazing, soft and spreads so lovely on the skin. HOWEVER, it smells exactly like eggs. SWAP!!!!!!!!

I also received a Skin Inc Pure Revival Peel. I do have sensitive skin so I am often hesitant to use a peel. I think this is getting swapped, too.

Last but not least, this month's perfume sample was Orchid Soleil by Tom Ford. I was happy to try this but would not re-purchase.

So, in conclusion, this month's bag was a dud for me. I def plan to swap the Egg Mellow Cream and will probably swap the Skin, Inc peel as well. The lippies are nice but two in the same bag was odd. The hair product is nothing special. Looking forward to next month already!

Did you get a PLAY! box this month? What did you think?
