September Lip Monthly Unbagging

september lip monthly

Hey lovelies,

Another month, another subscription bag! I know that I usually do my Ipsy unbagging first, but I am currently waiting for that to get to me. I came home to an empty pink envelope (I assume someone took my actual glam bag) but Ipsy was kind enough to send me another! So, in the meantime, I will share what I got in my Lip Monthly bag this month!

If you’re unfamiliar with Lip Monthly, they’re a beauty subscription that now costs $12.99 per month, but on average you get $50+ worth of stuff, and most of the products are full sized.

This month I recieved 3 full sized items and 1 sample sized item.

Jing Ai Lip Jewel in “Pink Star” $22 I’ve actually gotten one of these before in a past bag, but I am not unhappy to get another! These are actually really smooth and pretty pigmented for a lip crayon. I like when Lip Monthly sends these weird not as known brands because this is something I would have never thought to try myself, and it’s pretty awesome!

Noyah Gloss in “Summertime Peach” $6 Okay, this item disappointed me. It’s a really tiny sample which always gets lost with my black hole of teensy samples, and peach just isn’t a shade I want right now. It’s not Summer anymore. I really hope next month we get some Fall things. There was a coupon code attached for 20% off though which was nice.

Jelly Pong Pong Highlighting Pen $17.95 The last thing from Jelly Pong Pong I couldn’t really use, but this I might be able to. I like to use highlight pens like the Nyx wonder pencil to carve out my brows and highlight them, so that’s what I will use this one for! It swatched a really pretty peachy color and felt smooth, so I’m excited to try it!

Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon “Shameless” $16 I’ve gotten a lot of be a Bombshell products from beauty subscriptions in the past, and I actually like their brand! I’ve been using the lip balm I got by them in an Ipsy bag for a few months now, so getting a new product to try is awesome. This is a really pretty berry shade that does remind me of Fall. It swatched really smooth on my arm so we’ll see if it does that well on my lips!

Lip Monthly August 2015

lip monthly august

Hey lovelies,

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!

Lip Monthly June 2015

lip monthly june

Hey beauties,

Another unbagging post! Hells yeah! Today I will be going over what I got in my Lip Monthly bag this month and also giving my thoughts on it. If you’re unfamiliar with Lip Monthly, it’s a lot like Ipsy, but with more lip products. It’s a lipstick addict’s dream subscription, honestly. It’s $10 a month and most of the time I get full sized products and there’s typically a “makeup mix up” with one product that isn’t a lip product, which is nice.

I don’t recommend this subscription if you don’t absolutely love lip products or if you don’t collect and try out different brands often. I have had my months with this subscription where I have been less than satisfied, but lately they seem to have stepped up their game.

1. Jelly Pong Pong Paradise Pigment I’ve gotten a little thing from this brand before, and I hated it, so hopefully this little guy will redeem the brand for me. Jelly Pong Pong has to be the oddest brand name I’ve ever heard, but this packaging is adorable. This pigment is a very bright pink and can be used on the cheeks and lips. When I swatched it, it felt very smooth and creamy, and I hope it transfers that well onto my face. This retails at $19.95

2. J.Cat single eyeshadow “Mud wrestle” This was the “makeup mixup” product. I’ve never tried a J.Cat shadow, but I will sy the color is a very nice cool toned brown, and the texture reminds me of the Nyx single shadows. I don’t reach for single shadows often, but I feel this shade might make for a nice transtition shade. It retails at $2.99.

3. So Susan Colour Hybrid “Marsala” The last So Susan product I received was a lip dome that I wasn’t too impressed with, but I would like to say that their products are always so adorably packaged. This is a mousse type textured pigment that can be used on the lips or cheeks. The color is a very nice Marsala shade, and I’m more hopeful about this than I was the lip dome. This product retails at $17.50 and is full sized

4. Be a Bombshell Lipstick “Hollywood” If you’re familiar with me, you’ll know that I live and die over red lipstick. I was extremely happy to see this in my bag. The packaging is awesome. I love bullet shaped tubes, they just give off a vintage vibe. The color is really nice, and is a true bright pin-up type of red. It’s not a matte finish, and it’s not the most pigmented lipstick I’ve ever swatched, but the shade and formula are nice. This retails at $14

That’s everything that I got this month! I’m pretty happy with everything, and I can’t wait to sit down and play with some of these products more. The total retail of this bag was $54.44, which is really high value for a subscription bag.

If there is anything you all are more interested in seeing a full review on alone or used in a look, please let me know!

As always, thanks for reading and I hope you are all having wonderful days!
