Lip Monthly | December 2017

lip monthly

I got my first Lip Monthly bag for only $5, it is normally $12.95/month. Everyone that signs up gets their first bag for $5 (25% off) and you are able to cancel at anytime.

Lip Monthly sends you 4-5 full-sized items once a month in a beauty bag the same quality as Ipsy bags. Most of the products will be lip products but I saw that I got a product for a different part of my face and as I looked on other unboxing blogs, it seemed a lot of times they also received one non-lip product.

I got 4 items in my bag. There was also a little postcard that said: “December 2017” on one side and…

lip products

“Merry Christmas” “Stay Cozy” “make it pop like pink champagne” “Happy Holidays!” on the other side. I was expecting a description of each item or something?

Hanalei – Lip Treatment in Rose

Retail Value: $20

I was surprised how pink it was when I first squeezed it out but then I applied it and it became translucent. It was barely pink at all. It felt and looked nice when I first put it on. I didn’t apply anything else on my lips all day so I know this is the reason why my lips were burning a few hours later. I will never use it again.

Bella Pierre Cosmetics – Kiss Proof Lip Crème in Orchid

Retail Value: $20

Oh wow, this lip crème is absolutely amazing. It is easy to apply and dries quickly, it doesn’t dry out your lips like other matte lipsticks seem to do. It does not smudge, smear, wear off through anything. Seriously, it is kiss proof–they are not lying. I don’t really like the scent but it’s not unbearable and fades away once it dries. I will wear this lipstick whenever I feel a little daring (since it’s so dark) and will definitely think about buying it in other shades.

IBY Beauty – Lip Liner Pencil in Berry

Retail Value: $6

This lip liner was soft and creamy, I liked that. I don’t like pencils that you have to sharpen, though, I prefer twist ups. It’s also kind of messy, it bleeds out of my lip lines and smear easily.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics – Glo Illuminator

Retail Value: $29

I don’t like liquid highlighters, I really don’t. They dry up so fast and I hate the way they make my face feel. This one was no different. It made my face feel like there was a dry patch on it the whole spot I applied it to. It also took a lot of product before it showed up on me.

I don’t think I’ll get another Lip Monthly bag after this one. I did like the products I received and thought it was totally worth it for what I paid but I don’t really need 5 new lip products every month. I might order one again when I run out of lip stuff. I also wish they had sent me different colors. The Bella Pierre lip crème and the Iby Beauty’s lip liner were too similar. I’m worried they’d keep sending me the same shade in different brands.

  1. I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t have the best experience with some of these products! However the second lip colour looks really pretty on you (although I doubt I would try it out myself, I have always been scared of dark lip colours :’))

    1. Yeah I wasn’t so happy when my lips started burning, lol but I did love the second one, too:D. Dark colors usually scare me a little too, glad I’m not alone, haha:P.


  2. Hunida you are absolutely gorgeous! I am totally crushing on your flawless skin rn. 😩 You’re really making me wanna sign up to a box of some sorts… I’ve got to figure out which type of box though because I am an anti-hoarder; I throw stuff away when I feel like I have too much of it. I like what I like when it comes to cosmetics so that may not be the best type of box to try. Either way, keep the posts comin’! I love your recommendations!

    1. Awww thank you so much, Dom. You are making me blush! Though I wouldn’t say my skin is flawless because I do have foundation and concealer on in all the pics;).
      Ooh girl, there are SO many sub boxes out there. You’d def find one that would work for you!


  3. I’ve been seeing this pop up on Facebook but I don’t use that many lip products to think this would really be worth it. After seeing your review, it sounds like they only sent you one really good product (the kiss proof one, which looks great on you by the way!) I’ll stick to what I have so far. I thought about doing Splendies which is where they send you 3 pairs of cute underwear monthly 😂 so far that’s the only other one I’m considering


    1. Yeah, I always tell myself I’m gonna start using lipstick and stuff but once the initial application wears off, I never put it on again lol. And you’re right! I personally only loved one product but that one product is well over $5 so it was worth it. 🙂 I think I remember you telling me about Splendies! I still haven’t looked that one up but it would def come in handy hehe.

      1. Same here honestly haha. I’m not good about reapplying my makeup after the initial use, and half the time I don’t really use much anyways. And it’s definitely good you got the bag for that cheap – definitely a steal! Even if it was just for that one product 🙂 haha I’m still debating ordering them but they do look cute! And I could use some new cute ones 😂

  4. a friend of mine was subscribed to this one and i always thought it was neat that she would get 4-5 lipsticks every month and i considered subscribing to this one, but i decided against it as they won’t send you shades that will suit your skin tone, so i decided that even though you’re getting more than what you’re paying, i probably won’t like every single lipstick, and i don’t need that many anyway, i have a ton of lipsticks in my vanity that i don’t use, i’ll have to destash again because i went all out when i decided to buy lipsticks lol. if i counted right, i have like 70+ :O
