Yep, that's a Drunk Elephant product. THE Drunk Elephant. That's expensive.



Uh, interesting bag. I admit, I first thought it had something to do with Snapchat and wondered why they were promoting it.


Info card.


Philosophy Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Mask ($2.33) - I don't typically go for pore extractor things, they scare me and my face.

Sephora Collection Rouge Cream Lipstick (The Red) ($3.33) - The Red is The Perfect (see what I did there? hehe) name for this lipstick color. It's the perfect blue-toned red that looks so good on just about everyone. Because I have one red lipstick (that legit never gets worn), I did pass this on.

Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss (SPL) ($2.86) - Yikes. A pink iridescent lip gloss? That's a no from me.


Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo/Conditioner (Sample) - I keep samples of hair products for the non-existant travel I do, so I ended up using this. Because it was enough for one use, I don't know if there are any longterm benefits to using it, but I liked how my hair looked/smelled when I used it.

Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial ($24.00) - I like this, not for all of the time but for every so often. Because it resurfaces, it's not something I'm comfortable with using constantly as my skin has a tendency to be more sensitive.

Peter Thomas Roth Skin to Die For No-Filter Mattifying Primer & Complexion Perfector ($7.00) - Wowza, that's a mouthful. You'd think they could come up with a better name that would roll off the tongue. This is a good primer but it does mattify so I could only use it on specific parts of my face. I didn't see any blurring so again, only useful on parts of my face.


Swatches L-R: Sephora Collection, Urban Decay.


This bag was valued at $39.52. I liked some of the items but the majority were either not that good or were instant passes. My Play bags haven't been made for my profile very much so I'm not sure what's going on with that.

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
