TGIF and what a way to wrap up the week…Along with The French Box, the mail carrier brought with her today the November Lip Monthly bag.
With no further ado, let’s see what the people at Lip Monthly have put together for us for November.
First of all, let’s start with this UH-DORABLE bag!
This is a new design for this month and I’m loving it. Super cute. Nice touch, Lip Monthly, and thanks for listening to your subscribers’ suggestions!
Okay, now for what’s actually in the bag.
Well, this is an impressive little assortment. Let’s look at each item individually and see what new goodies we have to try out. Lip products are my personal makeup Waterloo.
In the color “Berry Me,” this NYC Expert Last Lipstick is full-sized and extremely wearable, with a bit of shimmer. I’ve been wanting to try this product and this color will be the ideal way for me to do so. November is off to a great start!
From Ofra, next up is a full-sized lip liner (I adore lip liner!) in the color Orchid. This is a muted plum shade, sort of a “your-lips-but-better” color. Actually, it appears to go perfectly with the NYC lipstick above and the Hikari lipstick below. Very nice, Lip Monthly, very nice!
And speaking of the Hikari lipstick, let’s take a closer look at that baby:
I received this same color in an Ipsy bag a couple of months ago and I already know it’s a gorgeous shade, a perfect deep berry/burgundy for fall and winter. Since I already own this one, I’m passing this to my daughter, who was threatening to steal the one I received from Ipsy.
From Crown, also included in this month’s bag is what is referred to as a lip brush. It’s considerably larger than my usual lip brushes and quite stiff. I think I’m going to put this brush to use as a concealer brush. Whichever way its used, it’s a great full-sized brush and I’m happy with it!
The November “monthly mix-up” is this pretty package containing City Color Cosmetics eye mousse in the shade White Gold. This is not only a lovely shade, it’s also very creamy and highly pigmented. When allowed to dry, it also would be an amazing eye shadow base. And the packaging is really pretty, in a little plastic box sitting on a little golden cardboard stand. I’m always impressed when less-expensive products take an extra step in presentation.
RETAIL VALUE OF NOVEMBER’S BAG: $34.99
Lip Monthly is my favorite “fun” subscription. For only $10/month, you receive 5 full-sized products, usually 4 lip-related and 1 “monthly mix-up” product. I’ve been subscribing for a few months now and, wow, have they progressed. The curator/owner really listens to customer feedback and suggestions and does her best to please everyone with the colors and assortments and she has recently switched from a plain box to a really cute reusable makeup bag with each month’s subscription. Make no mistake, the contents are not high end nor expensive, but they are a selection of affordable drug-store type of products. If you’re looking for high-end products, Lip Monthly might not be the best subscription for you; however, if you love lip products and are an equal opportunity lover of all things lips, this might be the perfect subscription for you. It would also be a perfect subscription gift for any makeup lover on your holiday gift list. It’s certainly affordable and a lot of fun at Casa Beholding Eye.
