Another month, another beauty subscription! Today, I will be going over what I got in my Lip Monthly bag! If you’re new to my blog, Lip Monthly is a monthly beauty subscription that costs $10. Typically everyone receives three lip products and one “makeup mix up,” and on average each bag has been valued at close to $50 lately.
I had to include the little card in the photo this month. I thought it was really pretty! The card stated that this month’s theme is “the end of summer” and the products are supposed to reflect that. Honestly, I’m glad the Summer themed bags are almost over with everyone. I can only handle so many glossy and pink things.
Mirabella Lip Pencil $25– This is a bright orange type of shade. I don’t own many Mirabella things, and this color looks so pretty and swatched very smoothly! It’s very pigmented, though I’m not sure if I can pull off orange. Maybe I just need to open myself up to it more.
City Color Lip Butter $3.99- This lip butter looks pink, but it is sheer. It’s not included in the swatches because there’s not a point. I’ve gotten a lot of lip balms and butters this summer, and I think I’m set for a few years. This one is really cute and I am always happy to get things from City Color in my subscription bags.
So Susan Light Diffuser $18- I’ve gotten quite a few things from So Susan through Lip Monthly, and I have to say that I always love their packaging! I love highlighters, so I know I will use the highlight shade in this. It’s a bit gold, which might not look great, but I’m gonna try it anyway. The bronze shade is cool toned, but has a bit of shimmer in it, but it’s not a lot so I might be able to blend it out and use this as a light contour for everyday use.
Starlooks Matte Lipstick $7- This is in the shade “dragon fruit” which is a pretty neon shade of pink. I dig it. Because this looks more like a lip pencil to me, I might end up using it to line my lips before applying the one bright pink lipstick I own. I think this could also work well for ombre looks if I do an Instagram look or something.It swatched very well, and is very pigmented.

Overall value of the bag: $54.99
I’m pretty happy with this month’s bag. I’m not as excited as I’ve been in previous months, but I am looking forward to trying the light diffuser and orange lipstick. If you get this subscription, let me know your thoughts down below! I would love to chat!
As always, thanks for reading!

One thought on “Lip Monthly August 2015”
Your posts on these bags make me want to sign up again lol. I just might after I move and get settled. I was just introduced to the So Susan brand through Boxycharm this month with the Statement Skin highlighter which is a more gold type of highlight and I love it! I think you could definitely rock orange lips! Try it girl! 🙂
