Lip Monthly May 2015

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.

Hey!! It’s a new bag from them.  I’m glad they switched it up but when I opened the mailer bag up all I could smell was the plastic stink of the bag.  I’ve had it out for a bit now and the smell has faded somewhat but if you sniff it you still get hit with it really strongly.

There are no wasted words on the card this month.  Usually there is a bit of a write up about why they chose the products or a bit of a theme but just the basics this time.

Jing Ai Lip Pencil in Raspberry Ice-$22.00 Full Size

The second line of description on the box reads “Velvet Shine Lip Jewel”.  I’m not sure how the velvet works into things but it is shiny.  It’s a much brighter colour then I would normally wear as a daily choice.  It did go on really easily and because of the pencil shape it is also easy to get it on in the right places.  I would like this more if it was a lighter colour. Too bad.

Milani Power Lip Gloss Stain in Pink Lemonade-$6.49 Full Size

This is a gloss and stain in one.  It has a built in brush for an applicator.  It took a long time to twist it until something came out but once it did the colour was super bright.  I ended up with too much on the brush and it got a bit messy on me.  I was misled by the name, it’s so dark as well. I’m not having much luck this month.

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in New Orleans-$19.90 Full Size

Sigh…..this really is purple.  I had hopes it would go on less intense but no luck.  I actually like the way it looks but I don’t know where I would wear it. It seems a bit much for work.  I’ve seen lots of makeup posts recently using similar colours so I think it really is on trend, I’m just not really cool enough to pull it off. Dammit!

NYC Sky Rise Lengthening Mascara in Extreme Black-$1.99

This is the makeup mix up item for the month.  I’m always happy to get more mascara so yay!

This months bag was kinda on the crappy side for me.  I like that everything is full sized but all three lip products are just not great colours for me.  If I was 15 years younger and going out to the bars, they’d be perfect. This month has a value of $50.68 which is really good.   If you would like to sign up I’d love it if you’d use my link.
