Now, let me tell you what I thought about Playboy Beauty’s line!

Talk about a fun and indulgent beauty line! Playboy’s empire is so vast that they even have a full line of beauty products, which are adorned with their trademark bunny, and of course, denoted by playful names. I tried four different products, but I have to say my favorite was their mood gloss in In the Mood ($18), because it had a delightful scent of cinnamon spice, subtle color, but it stained so well. It really did react “with the natural PH of [my] lips” to give me a great pink hue. I’ve really been on the hunt for a good lip stain, so this was well-timed!

I haven’t tried many liquid lipsticks in my time, so I’m glad I wasn’t disappointed by Liquid Luxe in Amaretto Tease ($16.00). Besides coming in an adorable bunny-topped tube, the color itself is a gorgeous plummy brown, but it’s not so brown that it’s not wearable for me. It’s a dark, sultry color, a bit vampy, but only slightly. I also tried their long-wear eyeliner pen in Wanna See My Tan Lines? ($18) which is a a rich dark brown, and it really is like a pen, so it helps you with accomplishing precision. I definitely like a pen point more than some of the brushes I’ve used in the past for liquid liner!

Velvet Body Balm in Balm Shell ($24) is such a great pearlized body and face highlighter. It’s smooth, ultra-sheer, and has subtle shimmer. You won’t find yourself turned into a frosty mess in the slightest! It has a natural look, and I love that it dries to a vevlet finish. I’ll definitely be putting this on my shoulders and cheekbones for holiday parties!

I think they’re a fun thing to have in your makeup bag, just ’cause. I love The Balm for warmer days when I wear tank tops and whatnot.
