Unfortunately my first month of LipMonthly was a disappointment to me, but I was willing to give it a second chance. The products were kind of all over the place, didn’t fit the theme, and were brands I wasn’t really interested in. You can read my first month’s review here if you’re interested.
This month I was really hoping that the November 2014 LipMonthly Bag would redeem itself and send me some awesome products, however I still don’t feel wowed by this beauty subscription box. The products in this box were supposed to be dark lip shades to pair with all the glam parties of the holiday season, and I do think they stuck to this theme better than last month. The bag was pretty cute this month, with little pink images of cosmetics on the pretty red bag.
Here’s what was in the November 2014 LipMonthly bag:
Ofra Lipliner: This lip liner looked pretty basic, in a nude/pink shade which I thought was strange to pair with the darker lipsticks. In general though it is a staple item and I probably will use this lip liner once in a while.
Hikari Lipstick: This lipstick was in the shade Cabernet, a deep red shade with a hint of berry. I like the colour and the chic square tube was neat, but it had a bit of a waxy or plastic-like scent that I really didn’t like.
NYC Expert Last Lipstick: This NYC lipstick was the only brand I had ever heard of before, which was nice to see something familiar. The shade is Purple Crush, a frosty berry shade. I’m glad there was a brand I knew and the lipstick was nice, but unfortunately nothing special.
Crown Lip Brush: I don;t typically use lip brushes but sometimes they are useful so it was a nice touch to add this item.
City Color Cosmetics White Gold Shadow & Highlighting Mousse: Every month there is one non-lip item added to the bag. This one was a really shimmery mousse shadow which was nice and festive for the holidays.
Overall the products just didn’t wow me and I think I will be cancelling my subscription. I gave it two chances but LipMonthly just isn’t the right fit for me. I would rather spend my subscription money on one or two lip products that I know I’ll love.
What about you, are you a fan of LipMonthly or do you have a different subscription you prefer?
