I was starting to get a bit worried about when I was going to get my remaining December boxes. I know the holidays have messed up a few deliveries but as of this morning I still had 8! boxes that needed to arrive. Thankfully I got two today so far so I can get a few posts out here for you.
Lip Monthly is a monthly subscription box that sends out a selection of lip products plus one monthly mixup product, that can be any non lip product. You also get your selections in a reusable makeup bag. Lip Monthly is $10.00 a month, with reduced rates for 4 month or annual plans. You also can accumulate points that can be redeemed in their shop. Shipping to Canada is an additional $5 a month but this is still a really affordable subscription. I am always surprised when I get this one as it comes in a plain white bubble mailer, and I never know what is in there till I read the label.
This months bag is appropriately wintery looking. I have yet to run out of things I need makeup bags for so still happy to receive them from two different subscriptions.
The info card for this month. They let us know that there are only four items this month but all are full size and the value of the bag is good, and that they are going to go this route for a while. I’m not sure if this means there will be no more mixup products or not but full size is always super.
Magnolia Makeup Matte Lip Color in Matador-$15.00
I was expecting something different when I opened this. It is more like a stain then a lip gloss in texture but it goes on really well and dried to a matte finish almost instantly. The color is a bit dark for me since I rarely go out but this would work well for a special occasion.
Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss in Bare Secret-$4.99
I like this one. The color is a great natural beige and it is only slightly sticky after application. This is a much better choice for me for everyday.
L.A. Girl Endless Semi-Permanent Auto Lipliner in Wine-$5.00
I like that they always give you a lip liner that works with some of the other products you get. That being said, I still don’t remember the last time I used a lipliner. This one goes on smooth but it’s still a darker color I rarely wear.
NYC Ultra Moist Lip wear in Mocha-$2.99
This is soooo much darker on then it looks and it’s really an unflattering color on me to boot. I’m glad it was the least expensive item in the bag so I won’t feel too bad about hiding it in a drawer and never letting it see the light of day again. On the plus side it went on really smooth and feels okay on, it just makes me look like I recently escaped form 1996.
The bag has a value of $27.98, which is good for the price I pay for it. I kind of liked the makeup mixup they used to provide so I hope it hasn’t gone by the wayside with the new way they are trying out. I think though that I will really only consistently use one product from this month so it’s a bit of a letdown but you can’t get perfect products every time.
If you want to get your own bag of lip products I’d be happy if you used my link.
