Camilla Lipstick in #23– FULL SIZE! $14.00
I always like trying new products, so I was excited to see there were two in this month’s bag! Although I’m not wild about the color I do like shades that put me out of my comfort zone. This lipstick went on smooth and it is a pretty fuchsia shade. I will keep!
Camilla Lip Gloss in #23– FULL SIZE! $14.00
This lip gloss is the same shade as the Camilla lipstick. I don’t like it solo because it is too sheer and sticky for me. However, it looks nice when you put it over the lipstick for some added shine. I will gift this!
Ecolips Tinted Balm in Sugar Plum– FULL SIZE! $4.49
This was my favorite item in the bag! It felt like heaven on my lips and had a slight mint tingle. I will definitely use this to help keep my lips moisturized. I also like how it has the perfect subtle shade, not too loud or too sheer. Bonus: it is Fair Trade Certified- woot woot!
Cargo Blush/Bronzer Duo– FULL SIZE! $10.00
This shade of blush is gorgeous but too bright for my olive skin. I wear blush daily but more of a darker shade. The bronzer has the perfect amount of glitter in it and I love the shade. Due to the bronzer this is a keeper and will be perfect for traveling! I couldn’t find this exact duo tin on the Cargo website but you can purchase the blush and bronzer separately. Or you can buy a larger tin with blush and bronzer mixed in strips.
Here are the lip swatches: Camilla Lipstick in #23 (top), Camilla Lip Gloss in #23 (middle) and Ecolips Tinted Balm in Sugar Plum (bottom).

Verdict: This month’s Lip Monthly bag was just okay for me. My complaint is that every lip product included was almost the same shade. I did discover a new lip balm- Ecobalm so that was a plus. This bag totals up to $42.49 and that’s a good deal given the price of the bag. I hope next month’s bag fits my taste better!

Note from Liz: On reviews of Lip Monthly in the past, several readers had commented that they had billing issues with Lip Monthly. I’ve reached out to Lip Monthly to let them know about the issues and our concern but please keep the issues in mind if you are considering subscribing.
