The December bag of Lip Monthly is my vety first bag from them! So, let’s start with the packaging. It arrived in a gold foil bubble mailer which had me super excited from the beginning! The bag itself was season appropriate. It had a picture of a snow covered city, perfect for winter!
In my bag, I had four full size products with a retail value of $68. This is pretty good when the site advertises that the bags will have a retail value of $35-$55 each month! Without further ado, let’s see what products I received!
Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in Hot Damn, $16 I am always down for a good red lip which is why I probably have at least 10 different red lipsticks. So, I was super excited to receive a red lipstick in this bag. However, I was a little disappointed when I applied it. It was kind of sheer and required several layers to get the opacity that I like with my lipsticks. It was more of a lip gloss than a lipstick. On the plus side, it seemed very moisturizing and since it’s a lip crayon instead of your normal lipstick, application was super easy and precise!
MeMeMe Long Wear Satin Lip Cream in Morello Silk, $15 I LOVEEEEEE a dark, vampy lip! When I opened this lipstick up and saw how dark this lip color was, I got super excited! Once applied, it is a deep wine color. It kind of reminded me of the shade Scarlet by Bite Beauty, only this one is a tad lighter. I will definitely get some use out of this color during this season!
Hikari Cosmetics Blush in Tango, $15 I was really disappointed to see a blush in my bag this month. I was expecting to only receive lip products since that is what the website advertises. To make matters worse, this blush is a pinkish shade and due to my medium/deep skin tone, it does not look flattering on me. This blush is definitely for people with lighter skin tones.
Evelyn Iona Lip/Cheek Tint in Ash, $22 This product was disappointing. From reading the product card, it states that it is a lip/cheek tint. Instead, it actually seems more like a cream blush. Which means this is my second blush in this bag and from reading my review above, you can tell that I am not happy about it. This blush is also in a shade of pink which means I will not be wearing this one either.
This bag was 50/50 for me. I really liked two of the products and disliked the other two. Since it was half and half, I will give the subscription another chance to hopefully send me some better products and maybe next time they will be all lip products. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
