Stella May I know what's in October's Play by Sephora Box?

Of course, today let me share what I got in this month's Play by Sephora. Play is a monthly subscription box that includes 5 beauty samples (makeup, skin care and hair) and 1 bonus perfume sample. (Is anyone else receiving their subscription boxes later and later in the month?)
Even though the back says lipstick and chill there aren't any traditional lipsticks, the bullet form anyway.
There are two skin care items this month. I am probably in the minority, but I actually really like getting skin care samples. This one is the Skin Inc. Pure Revival Peel. It's one of those that you slowly slough off the dead skin after you apply it to your face. I have never been a fan of these masks (mud masks ftw!) so we shall see how much I like this Skin Inc. one.
 The other skin care item is the Too Cool For School Egg Mellow Cream. It's made with just egg extracts, not the whole egg, and it's suppose to be an all in one product. Serum, moisturizer, eye cream, neck cream, and sleeping mask. All of which I can probably do with any of my moisturizers now.
But it's one of those products that has sounds interesting but I haven't ever bought and tried it. So I am glad I get to try with this sample box.
 Then the two lipstick-like products. First is the Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Belle. This is another kind of product that I have never got along with. A creamy lip and cheek product that comes in pots, crayons, twist-up sticks, the list goes on.. The Intense Matte claims for up to 6 hour wear. It's a pretty and basic rosey color.
 Just after proclaiming my love for glossy lips in last week's post, Sephora lets me know that the world is still very much on the matte lip train. Included in this month's box is the Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Driver's Seat. Did you know that Smashbox is a makeup brand founded by the great-grandsons of Max Factor? Anyways this is a water-resistant and non-feathering formula. I tried it on immediately after this picture and while it wasn't feathering, it wasn't pretty either. I probably applied way too much of it as it started to clump and it became very apparent that I had just painted my lips. So be sure to take off as much of the product from the wand before applying. (btw how unique is the wand? Although I am not sure about that diamond hole in the middle since it holds a lot of product.)
Smashbox Always on Matte Liquid Lipstick on top and Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil on the bottom. 
The last sample product is the Verb Leave-In Mist. I just had to show you this unscrewed. It's like a very thick gel formula. The leave-in mist moisturizes, smooths, detangles and protects your hair from heat. The only hair product I use day to day (outside of the shower) is a leave-in conditioner. So I am looking forward to comparing this to my favorite Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner.
What's inside: 
Verb Leave-In Mist
Too Cool For School Egg Mellow Cream
Skin Inc. Pure Revival Peel
Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Driver's Seat
Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Belle
Tom Ford Orchid Soleil perfume

Were you excited about this month's offerings? It seemed very mismatched, but I am looking forward to trying the products out.
