My Last Lip Monthly Bag: August

Hey guys, I know I’m late with this but I just got back from a mini-vacation and this is the first chance I’ve had to post. As some of you know I’ve been trying out different beauty subscriptions lately and Lip Monthly was one of them. I’m also currently a Lip Monthly affiliate so if you go back to my previous posts you’ll see their links/banners somewhere on the page. Last month I made the decision to end my subscription and affiliation with them. I’m just really not happy with the lip products they’ve been sending me. There’s only been a couple that I’ll actually use. A lot of the stuff they’ve sent me don’t match my skin tone at all and I end up giving most of it away. So, I’d much rather spend my time and or money receiving products and promoting for a company that I’m actually satisfied with.

The monthly subscription isn’t expensive at all and they always have discounts and promos going so you can get a certain amount of money off of your first bag, but I wouldn’t mind spending a few extra dollars on a subscription that I actually loved.

So I’ll show you what was in the August bag. I realize that just because I’m not happy with the subscription doesn’t mean other people aren’t or won’t be, but I will not be including a link/banner in this post. The banners in my previous Lip Monthly posts are currently still active and some of them I think offer discounts if you want to go back and check them out.

  1. Seraphine Lip/Cheek Gel-$20 This stuff didn’t work well on my lips but it seems like it might be good to use as a cheek stain. It’s way to red for me to use on my cheeks though.
  2. Hikari Cosmetics Dual Color Stick-$15 This is another lip/cheek combo. Not at all my shade, but I will  say that it goes on velvety smooth and blends very well.
  3. Manna Kadar Lip Crayon-$24 I might actually wear this one. It’s a very nice nude/neutral shade that goes well with my complexion. It says “LipLocked Priming Lip Wand” so I guess it’s some kind of primer as well.
  4. Lord & Berry Lip Liner-$10 I’m probably going to use this also. I love the color and I feel like it will go well with the Manna Kadar Lip Crayon. I have several other lipsticks that it will pair well with. It’s super pigmented and has a very easy and creamy application.

That’s it for the August Lip Monthly bag, my final one. If you’ve tried Lip Monthly , what are your thoughts? I’d love to know. Thanks for stopping by!

Lip Monthly: July bag

I’m a little late with this because I got caught up with moving and unpacking, and there’s still so much that needs to be done. Still, we’re so excited about being homeowners now and we’re loving our new place! Anyway, I wanted to share what I received in my Lip Monthly bag last month.

Lip Monthly, July

I know for sure that I’m only going to use the lipstick from City Color. The Mirabella lipstick is the wrong shade of red for me, it’s just too bright. The Cougar lip plumper smells awful. As for the Bellapierre shimmer….I just don’t know. It looks like a powder and it spreads easily but then it sort of flakes up. I’m not feeling it at all.

I’m not too impressed with this bag, hopefully the August bag will be better.

  1. Jelly Pong Pong Lip Butter-$18.95
  2. Peony Pink Glow luminizing stick-$22
  3. Measurable Difference/Chrislie lip color stick-$13
  4. Be a Bombshell lip/cheek stick-$16Because the Jelly Pong Pong, Peony and Be a Bombshell shades are so similar to each other, I swatched them side by side. I think the Jelly Pong Pong is a really good nude color but the other two are just way to light for me.
