Lip Monthly Review + Swatches | January 2016

This is my second Lip Monthly bag and I was terribly disappointed. I did not like any of the products I received this month! All of the lip products were nude colors and I HATE nude lipsticks. They are never a nude for my skin tone so they always make my lips look really ashy, which you will be entertained to see in the pictures below. I look absolutely crazy! LOL! They also included a hair mask in this bag, which is random. I wish they would only include lip products since this subscription is called LIP Monthly. I think I will give this subscription one or two more chances to turn it around, otherwise, I will be canceling! Anyway, since all of the products were full size, the retail value of this bag is approximately $64. Great deal since the bag itself is only $12.95…it just sucks when I won’t be using any of the products.

Well, let’s see what products I received that I will not be using…lol! Check out the bag below, at least it’s super cute!

OFRA Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Laguna Beach, $20.00

This color was hideous on me! It was a pinkish nude and it just looked awful on! It would be really beautiful on someone with a paler complexion, just not on me! The formula is liquid to matte and for the short time I had it on, it did not seem extremely drying like other formulas. It also was very opaque and did not require a lot of product to get the look in the picture. It did, however, have a slight odor to it. It smelled kind of like cake. If that wouldn’t bother you, you could probably try this product out and like it.

Starlooks Luxe Longwear Lip Pencil in Stellar

I could not find anywhere to purchase this product. But, the product card says that it retails for $14.00. The color was a mauveish shade. This is the only product that I may can use. I have to find a lipstick in my collection that it will complement first, before I can make a solid decision about it.

City Color Be Matte Lipstick in Latte, $4.99 
Latte is a light tannish color. Out of all of the lip colors in the bag, this one looked the best on me, but I still will not wear it because it just made my lips look ashy. The formula reminded me of LA Girl’s Matte Lipsticks which I reviewed here. I wasn’t a big fan of that formula. It’s not very moisturizing and does not stay on long. But, it’s only $4.99, so you can try out all of the colors and really not break the bank.

Oscar Blandi Moisture Recovery Treatment Balm 
I also could not find anywhere to purchase this product. However, the product card says it retails for $25. As I stated in my Birchbox review from this month, I am not a big fan of trying new hair products. This product says that it is for hair in need of intense moisture. You are supposed to apply it to clean, damp hair, leave it on for 5 minutes and remove it. Since it is a product that you rinse out of your hair, I may can give this one a try the next time I wash my hair. Hopefully, it does not weigh my hair down or dry it out!

What did you think of the products in my bag this month? Have you tried any of these products? Let me know in the comments!
