(LINK FOR A SPECIAL SAVINGS CODE FOR YOUR FIRST BAG AT THE END OF THIS BLOG…HAPPY SATURDAY!)
It’s a Happy Saturday at Casa TheBeholdingEye with the mail carrier three (3!!!) subscription boxes today. I actually saved what I had hoped would be the best for last to open, but now sharing the best of the 3 first.
Lip Monthly is a relatively new subscription service, offering 5 full-sized products (4 lip/1 mix-up) per month, both drugstore and higher-end brands, for $10/month. And starting this month, they’re even sending the products in a totally adorbs lippie-adorned bag.
Let’s dive on in. Here’s the bag and its contents:
Yep, sure enough…5 full-sized products, a descriptor card, and that spiffy bag!
Let’s take a closer look at that bag. It’s really cute and deserves its own picture:
Okay, now for the products. First, we have a full-sized City Color Be Matte lipstick in “Phoebe,” a really lovely pinkish/coral shade that swatches very nicely, good pigment with a matte finish. Not a shade I’ll wear every day but definitely one that I will wear.
RETAIL VALUE: $3.99
Next up we have a full-sized Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics lip gloss in “Lip Lock.” It’s a really pretty shade of sparkly pink…That I could never wear, so I’m passing this one on to my daughter. She will LOVE this shade. Admittedly, I didn’t swatch this one because it clearly isn’t a color that would flatter my complexion.
RETAIL VALUE: $4.99
The next full-sized product is a new product (so new I’m not sure it’s been released yet), but it’s a City Color Cosmetics Magic Balm. It goes onto your lips clear and the color develops as it warms up to your body temperature. Pretty clever, City Color Cosmetics! I’ll be keeping this little gem.
RETAIL VALUE: $3.99
The last lip product is a full-sized City Color Cosmetics lip balm in the shade “Ultra Pink.” It swatches more to the coral side than to the pink side and is a very wearable color. I think I’ll be reaching for this one quite a bit for everyday wear.
RETAIL VALUE: $2.99
And that brings us to the 5th item in the bag, the “Monthly Mix-Up.” This month it is a full-sized Pixi by Petra Lid Last Eye Shadow Pen in the color “590” (a pretty neutral gold/taupe color). Pixi has great products. I didn’t bother to swatch this one because I’m familiar with Pixi products and this color is definitely one I would purchase for myself.
RETAIL VALUE: $18
So, there it is. My first Lip Monthly subscription bag, retail value approximately $34. Not a bad deal for $10 a month (and did I mention that adorable bag, too???).
