Lip Monthly January 2015

Another week has begun and with it the hope for more parcels in the mail!  I love getting mail, so I couldn’t be happier to have found a way to get more……though I’m guessing a pen pal would have been cheaper.  I am still waiting for Ecocentric Mom, Danklo, and MommiesFirst from January.  February boxes that might show up this week also are Kawaii Box, Indulge Me Box, Avalai, WelliBox, and Little Life Box.  Those last three are new ones I’m giving a try as I weed out the other ones I don’t enjoy too much.  I’m beginning a journey to get healthier too this month so there will be a few boxes reflecting that as well.  I’m also thinking that with the Canadian Dollar disappearing as compared to the American one I may need to dump a few more that just become crazy for the value.

Lip Monthly is a monthly subscription box that sends out a selection of lip products.  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, I just can’t remember that it comes this way.

This months bag and card.  There has never been a theme with this subscription and this month is no exception.

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Laguna Beach-$19.90 Full Size

I went to put this on and was  a little weirded out by the texture.  Then I read the tube and realized it was not a lipgloss but a lipstick and it made sense.  It’s a little dry feeling on but I find that with most long wearing products.  The color is nice and I will wear it for sure.  I did double check the retail though because it seemed high to me but that is the actual price on the Ofra website.

Mica Beauty Cosmetics Tinted Lip Balm in Velvet Rose-$14.50 Full Size

So it says this is a lip balm but the color is waaay to dark for me to ever use it as that.  As a going out lip color it’s perfect.  The formula is nice and goes on really well.  Not my favorite thing but it’s okay.

Ecolips Ecotints Naturally Glistening Lip Moisturizer in Rose Quartz-$4.49 Full Size

This just made up for the last one.  It smells great, makes your lips tingle, and the color is fantastic.  This is my best product from this bag!

Harvey Prince Imperial Gardenia Sample-???

This is the second Harvey Prince sample I’ve received, though they were two different scents.  Lip Monthly gives this a value of $12 but as there is no size on it I still have to call BS due to the retail of a bottle being just over double that.  However I really do like this scent.  I am a big fan of florals in perfume and since this is mostly a single note of gardenia it works for me.  A full sized bottle is 8.8mL and $29.00.

With the exception of the lip balm I think this was a good bag.  Without the perfume the value is $38.89.  As mentioned last month they are trying a new method and so far it’s okay.
