Lip Monthly Makeup Subscription Box Review – August 2014
UPDATE FROM LIZ: Some subscribers have reported being double charged for this subscription, so I recommend holding off on purchasing a subscription for now. I’ll update again if things change.
Lip Monthly is a new subscription box of everything lips! Every month, they send a new curation of lip sticks, glosses, balms or stains right to your door. The boxes come in many variations, so the products I received will be slightly different than others sent out.
Every Lip Monthly box comes with an informational card, detailing the items included and a note from the company to their subscribers. This month’s theme is “Lips 101.” Also, on the bottom left of the card they say that if you do a video review and send them the link, you’ll get an extra free product in your next box! (I do feel, however, that “Dear Lip Monthly Subscriber” feels a little impersonal.)
The Subscription Box: Lip Monthly
The Cost: $10/month
COUPON: use promo code “1ST299” to get your first box for $2.99 on 4-month plans

City Color Cosmetics Be Matte Lisptick in Phoebe – .105 oz, value: $3.99
City Color Cosmetics Lip Balm in Ulta Pink – .75 oz, value: $2.99
Both of these items are full, size, which is great. They’re also both very wearable shades.
Pixi by Petra Lid Last Shadow Pen in Gilded Mink – .16 oz, value: $18
City Color Magic Balm – value: $3.99
Jesse’s Girl Liquid Glass Lip Gloss in Lip Lock – .05 oz, value: $4.99
Lip Monthly just began the beta of their online shop, and I think it’s a great move on their part to offer it. However, I couldn’t find the eye shadow pen or Magic Balm in it yet – I’m glad they include the values on the info card for us!
I was really happy to see the brand Pixi in this month’s bag. It’s an eye product, not a lip, included as Lip Monthly’s “Monthly Mix-Up” product.
Verdict: This month’s Lip Monthly box, I felt, has significantly improved from last month’s. I was thrilled when I saw they used a cosmetic bag to hold the products this month, and the value all adds up to about $34! Additionally, all items were full-sized and none were discontinued items. I want to let our readers know that, in response to last month’s review, Lip Monthly contacted us and let us know they won’t be including discontinued items in their subscriptions anymore.
What do you think about this month’s Lip Monthly box? How do you feel about the changed they’ve made so far?
