March 2015 Lip Monthly Review

Hello everyone! Lip Monthly is a subscription service I look forward to seeing each month because I love seeing what colors they choose to send out, and now that Spring is here, I was expecting some fun, brighter colors, which is exactly what they delivered!

For those who don’t know, Lip Monthly is a subscription service that costs $10/month. Each month, Lip Monthly sends you a bag full of 4-5 lip products and they sometimes include a “Monthly Mix Up” item as well! Every subscriber usually gets the same products but I have seen a couple small variations in the past. 

What I love about Lip Monthly is that I get to try a bunch of lip products and brands that are new to me AND I’ve noticed most, if not all, of their products tend to be full sized!


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

Onto the products
Hikari Lipstick in Crush – $13.00
Jordana Easyshine Glossy Lip Color in Raspberry – $1.99
J.Cats The Big Lip Pencil in Caramel Mocha – $3.99
I’m glad Lip Monthly sent a Hikari Lipstick again because I LOVE the one that was in the November bag. This one is a super bright pink so I don’t know if it’ll suit me but I can always pass it along to a friend! 
I’ve never tried Jordana or J.Cats lippies before so I’m excited to test these out! The Jordana is also bright pink but less intense than the Hikari and the J.Cat is a super pretty nude-ish brown with a tiny bit of orange, if that makes any sense – I’ll post swatches below!
From left to right – Hikari Lipstick in Peach, Jordana’s Easyshine in Raspberry, and J.Cats Lip Pencil in Caramel Mocha
Jelly Pong Pong Supermodel Stain – $25 
Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Nail Polish in Mighty Mango – $1.97
I’m not sure why I got the Jelly Pong Pong since it was from last month’s bag – and as far as I know, all subscribers only got 4 products this month. Either way, I’m curious to try out this quad because it is quite pricey and has some pretty colors!
Yay for nail polish! I’m glad the monthly mix up was a Spring friendly nail color, I’m definitely going to try this one out soon!
I really like the items in this bag, my favorite item has to be the Sally Hansen Nail Polish and J.Cats Lip Pencil! I really love the Hikari Lipstick but I’m not sure I’ll be able to pull it off. 
Value of March’s Bag – $21 This is without the Jelly Pong Pong since it seems to be an extra in this bag, with it the quad, my bag ends up retailing for $46! With or without the quad, this bag has a great value for the price!
I know some folks are hesitant to try out Lip Monthly because: 
  • Shipping can take forever
  • Some people get charged for next month before receiving the current month’s bag
  • Customer Service can be super slow or unresponsive
However, I really do recommend giving them a chance if you love trying new lippies! Lip Monthly is constantly improving and they do seem to be taking all comments/criticism into consideration. I’ve discovered numerous different brands and found some favorite lippies due to this sub! 
Let me know your thoughts on this month’s bag or Lip Monthly in general in the comments below!

    I'm really impressed with this month's bag. Wow, you got great lippies & polish for only $10. I liked the Hikari lipstick I got last fall from ipsy and the shade you received is fab. I love anything from Jordana, and I WANT that JCat crayon. Enjoy it!!
