Lip Monthly May Edition*



Love Lipsticks? Love trying different brands for lipsticks? Or you're just a lippy junkie? Look no further! Lip Monthly is monthly subscription box that will attend to the average Lipstick lover's craving. Similarly to Ipsy, Bellabox... Lip Monthly is a specialised company that purely focuses on just lipsticks. They give you the opportunity to try out different brands and giving you FULL sizes!

They let you try lipsticks from around the world and each month, you are given a new colourful bag filled for 4-5 full sized items! This is my first time trying this subscription box and I am excited to give it a go. 

As the rumours circle around, it is true that with these subscription companies, there will be months where you would absolutely hate the products that are given to you and there will be month where it would amaze you and exceed your expectations. I cannot say for sure as of the moment as this is my first ever subscription. I will update you on my thoughts and opinions, but for now I wanted to showcase what this month's bag is all about. 

In the May Edition, I received four full sized lip products ranging from lip tints, lipsticks to lip treatments. The brands given in this month are all new to me, but a few look quite promising. Each month, you will be given a beautifully designed card that will detail how much each item will cost on the market and it will display how much you have saved with this subscription package. Personally, I would rather have a card that tells me more about the lipsticks, such as its application, formula and colour, rather than knowing the price.

Dirty Little Secret is a small cosmetic company that produces a limited amount of products. But one of their best sellers is their lipstick range. There is a total of 20 shades that they have made and I was given the colour "Don't tell me", which is a cool-tone purple-berry shade. I dislike the packaging, but the formula is quite pleasing to use. It is a satin-finish lipstick and has a decent pigment to them. It retails for $10 USD.

This peculiar lip product by So Susan greatly intrigued me. The colour looked intimidating, as well as the looks of the formula. It is described as a lip and cheek gel product that is activated when made contact with your skin. It is a gel-stain that changes colour that gives you a rosy flush of colour. The colour varies dependent on the user's complexion and body temperature. Very interesting lip gel! This retails for $24.95 AUD.


Manna Kadar is another cosmetic company that I am not familiar with. They produce a large range of products for makeup, skincare and general beauty items. In this month's bag, we were given another lip-staining item. It claims to be a long-lasting, smooth and hydrating lip gloss. There is a total of 8 shades and we were given the shade "Nude Rose Pink". Beautiful shade! This lipstick retails for $24.00 USD.

When I saw this item by Jor'el Parker, I was quite confused. For a lip monthly subscription box, I didn't understand why a skincare item was in my bag. But this item is very versatile. It's a vegan, and gluten-free product that helps every part of your skin, including your lips. It is a mud therapy treatment that claims to moisturise, nourish and rejuvenate the skin. It says to contain antioxidants, minerals that help to protect, hydrate and cleanse the skin from dryness and impurities. Essentially, I assume this is an exfoliating treatment and can be used on the lips. It retails for $27 USD.

I am quite pleased with the items that I had received, and very keen to try them out. If you are interested in joining this subscription box, there are 3 available subscriptions that you can sign up for - monthly, 4-monthly and annual. These three types of subscriptions is to cater for flexibility to your needs and wants. Generally it costs $12.95 USD to sign up on a monthly basis, which is a total bargain for the amount you would have paid.

For my wonderful followers, Lip Monthly have generously given my readers and followers the opportunity to try out their stuff with a discount. Use the code "BISCUITSNMAKEUP" at the checkout and you will be given a 55% reduction on your first subscription bag! With every month, you will be receiving FULL-sized lip products, a cute pouch and the comfort of trying different lipsticks without leaving the country.
