For those who don’t know, Lip Monthly is a monthly subscription service that costs $10/month. Each month, Lip Monthly sends you a bag of 4-5 lip products, and they sometimes include a “Monthly Mix Up”item as well, and every subscriber receives the same bag as the other. What I love about Lip Monthly  is that I get to try a bunch of new products and brands and they so far I noticed that most, if not all, of the products have been full sizes!

I received an email in December saying they would send me December’s bag for review purposes but nothing showed up, however, I got an email last week saying January’s bag was on the way – but I actually got December’s bag instead!

Each bag comes with a card listing all the products that are featured that month.


December’s bag came with 4 FULL SIZED products!


LA Girl Automatic Liner in Wine – $5

Milani Brilliant Shine Gloss in Nude Touch – $4.99

Magnolia Makeup Matte Lip Color in Matador – $15

NYC Lipstick in Mocha – $2.99

I am absolutely excited for the LA Girl Liner because I don’t have many liners – probably 3 or 4 and they’re all pink so I’m happy to have one in a darker shade!

I love love love Milani and I love the shade of this lip gloss, I know I’ll be reaching for it often! I don’t have any lippies from them so I’m glad I can finally try one out!

This matte lip color was really thin and watery for me so I’ll be passing it along to someone. I really like the shade though, it’s a really nice red! One issue I had was with the packaging – for a lippie that’s $15 I expected the label to be put on straight, not crooked like it is (you can’t tell from the photo but it’s super crooked from the back) I know I wasn’t the only one who had this issue and after looking at their website, it seems like Magnolia Makeup changed their packaging for their matte lip colors.

This last lippie is a super pretty brown color but I don’t wear browns often so I’ll be passing this along as well! I couldn’t find this anywhere online besides amazon so I’m assuming these aren’t being made anymore – i hope it’s not super old!

Here are some swatches I took!


From left to right: LA Girl Lipliner in Wine, Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss in Nude Touch, Magnolia Makeup Ultra Matte Lipstick in Matador, and NYC Ultra Moist Lipstick in Mocha

After washing the swatches off I noticed the three lippies on the right came off super quick, like zero trouble at all but the lip liner stayed on the longest – I was impressed!

The total value of this bag is around $28 and that’s almost triple the price of the cost! I really think Lip Monthly is a fun and inexpensive way to try out new lip products!
