Lip Monthly | July 2015 Review


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.IMG_2792

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.

What are they:IMG_2794

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.

IMG_2881 I usually always purchase travel size or mini sized fragrances that I keep in my handbag for emergencies and the ZARA one I was using was emptied and this came just in time.

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. 😦

See…IMG_2873

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.

Brownie points to the packaging they shipped in. They had me at this gold. 😉IMG_2791

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.

    1. Thanks so much for reading and for the lovely comment. Haha I am super terrified of getting addicted, this was my first subscription and I feel I am already but only after my next bag I’d make up my mind to continue my subscription. Let me know if you do subscribe, I’d love to hear what you think. Have a great weekend. X

      1. I did two subscriptions at once Ipsy, and Birchbox. Don’t know if that was a good idea for my wallet, but it was a good idea for the sake of beauty products at the time LOL I will definitely let you know If I subscribe! I might have to let go of one of my subscriptions now though aha

  1. Great post! Lip Monthly has definitely seemed to have improved since I was subscribed to them a long time ago. Sorry that your lip crayon was broke though. I hope they are going to replace it at least. The bag everything came in is so cute too! I love the Harvey Prince perfumes!! Great bag! 🙂 xo

    1. Oh really!? I am glad they’ve improved or my first subscription box experience would have been bad. lol I was pretty bummed about the broken crayon but I don’t know if I should get a replacement, its not a color I would use alot anyways. I love the bag it came in too and the Harvey Prince perfume was a pleasant surprise especially since I wasn’t aware of their products before this.
      Thanks for reading! Xx

      1. You’re welcome! I’m glad that you’re enjoying your subscriptions. But yeah if you would have started with them a long time ago they weren’t that great. Xx

  2. Hey lady! Ok so you totally should email them about the condition of your L&B lip crayon… most companies will replace the damaged item at no cost to you! This seems like a really neat and affordable sub. I think it’s cool that most of their products are Cruelty Free too! And they all seem to be current 🙂

    1. Hey Kaily!! Hope your doing well. I wanted to email them about it but the only thing stopping me is that the crayon isn’t something I would really use so it would be sort of useless for me to get it replaced. Am I making sense? lol It is a pretty cool sub box especially for soemone like me who wants to test the waters in sub boxes. Thanks for reading! X
