Subscription boxes of all sorts have been raved and reviewed about by many for a while now. Being a self-proclaimed lover of surprises(pleasant ones of course!) I have been instantly attracted to the idea. However most companies don’t ship worldwide so I had to sit in my little island while everyone had fun.
After waiting patiently for a long time, just about 2 months ago I came across someones post on Lip Monthly. It is a monthly subscription box for lip products and was only $10 (although they’ve now increased the price to $12.95)
What is Lip Monthly?
“…a $12.95 month subscription service for your favourite Lip products! Every month you’ll receive a unique bag of 4-5 items from awesome brands such as Stila, Revlon, Glam Natural, Appeal Cosmetics, Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics and more.”
Let me break down my July 2015 Lip Monthly bag for you:
All the contents come in a pink and white zebra-ish printed makeup bag which I thought was super cool.
I must admit I was really impressed at what was inside because I really didn’t expect it to be much. Getting products the value of $61.44 for just $10 felt really good.
Apart from Milani I hadn’t tried any of the other brands before and you all know how much a beauty blogger lusts to try out different brands so I thoroughly enjoyed this experience.
The cherry on top was the Harvey Prince roll-on fragrance since I really hadn’t expected to received anything apart from lip products.
I also felt that this months bag had a bold theme going on since I got very bold lip colors. I received a red, a berry and a bright violet. One other thing worth mentioning was that the 3 lip products were of different mediums, crayon, balm tint pot and a liquid lipstick.
One complain I have is that the Lord & Berry Crayon was damaged. The crayon part was like inside the hollow and I really don’t know how to get it out. 😦
This months bag didn’t have any pinks or nudes so I really hope next month’s does. One other thing, anyone living outside the U.S gets their bag a week or two after the ones in the US receive it.
I was not initially planning on reviewing this but the only reason I did so was because I was truly impressed with it and wanted to share the experience.
**Please be aware that using the links I’ve provided probably (I am not exactly sure *yawn*) gets me points on Lip Monthly and can also get me a free box if anyone actually subscribes. So you don’t have to use it if you don’t want to 😉 I really did not do this post for either of these two reasons.
I would totally recommend trying this to anyone who wants to try out a subscription box but don’t want to spend too much on it. I didn’t honestly expect it to be this good and I really hope they don’t let me down next month.
I got some coupon codes from Lip Monthly that you can use if you want to subscribe which I shall list below.
