I received my August 2016 Lip Monthly bag today and in case you are new to the US-based Lip Monthly bag which costs $12.95 per month (free shipping worldwide – and always special offers on for your first bag) please see my previous posts here and here which also includes my thoughts on the contents of the June & July 2016 bags.
This month’s bag is white with a Blue / Pink / Dark Orange and Black floral design– (each month you receive a lip monthly makeup bag and most months there is a different design). Inside were the following – the usual three lip products, one makeup item and the product information card:
1. Seraphine Rosy Cheeks Natural Lip / Cheek Gel in ‘Bloom’ – $20.00
Never heard of this brand before – comes in a tube and smells of roses, you just need a dot and then press / blend colour in – it is long lasting and has a matt stain type finish – initial thoughts are that personally would use this product more on my cheeks than my lips.
I have received products from this brand before and although have used them have not been overly impressed with products I have received to date – states is a priming lip wand – it has a matt finish and is a medium pink colour – not sure about this product yet as initially feels quite drying on the lips but need to try for a longer period to see how it performs.
3. Hikari Cosmetics Dual Colour Lip & Cheek Stick ‘Tawny’ – $15.00
4. Lord & Berry Lip Liner ‘Romantic Rose’–$10.00
I do like Lord & Berry lip products and love the colour, a dark pink colour, consistency and durability of this pencil already.
Although overall the bag was definitely v good value this month – total retail value of $69 – because I would not use one of the lip products on my lips and another one I feel quite drying on my lips I am not as impressed with this months bag compared to recent bags. I would still recommend trying this beauty subscription especially if you love lip products and because of the value of products included, however as I am currently considering which beauty subscriptions to keep on I am seriously thinking of cancelling this subscription for the moment.
