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. They used to ship out in a plain mailer but have stepped it up and now it’s a gold mailer. Really sparkly and this month showed up with Ipsy, which is a pink mailer, so my mailbox was highly glittery.
The last few months have had some new bags from them. The repetition of bags was a major complaint for a lot of subscribers. I didn’t really care but the new ones have been pretty cool looking. The only downside to them is that they absolutely reek. That first whiff when you open the mailer bag is pure toxic plastic smell, I’m thinking made worse by it being warm out now.
With the new bags comes a simplified info card. They used to have a short little blurb about why things were selected but now it’s to the point. Here’s what you got and the retail prices.
Be A Bombshell Lipstick in Hollywood-$14.00
This is a red/wine shade. I’m not sure what is up but lately everyone is including these dark colours in their boxes and I am not a huge fan of them. They are just not an everyday shade for me with my job and life. The colour looks fine on me and I like the formula and brand but it will get used much less then a somewhat lighter colour would.
So Susan Color Hybrid Lip/Cheek Mousse in Marsala-$17.50
I haven’t got the slightest idea how you could use this a cheek tint. It is soooo red! It is actually the color of the tube. As a lipstick is goes on okay, brushed on, not applied from the tube. The colour again is a bit dark for my personal taste but if feels really great on and promises to make my lips soft and less chapped.
J.Cat Beauty Flying Solo Eyeshadow in Ticket To Stardom-$2.99
This cute little eyeshadow has all you need concealed inside. The lid lifts up to reveal a tiny mirror and applicator. I think this is a great peach/copper shade and it has a good shimmer that doesn’t look cheap. My favorite item from the bag this month.
Jelly Pong Pong Paradise Pigments Lip/Cheek Cream in Fig Jam-$19.95
This one again really cannot be used on your cheeks. It is PINK! On my lips I love it though. It smells great, goes on super smooth, and feels silky when I rub my lip together. It’s a little odd that they included this brand in the bag this time since Jelly Pong Pong is part of So Susan, meaning they have two items from the same company but since I’m happy with this product, I’ll forgive them.
This months bag has a value of $54.44, which is really good. Everything is full sized too. I am not super excited about the first two lip items, just based on colour. It was an okay month, maybe next time will be better. If you would like to sign up I’d love it if you’d use my link.
