So Susan Jello Shot Rosy Cheek & Lip Gel– FULL SIZE! $24.95
I love everything about this product except the actual product. The box it came in has fun funky artwork, I love the Jello Shot name and I love the design on the tube. I’m not a huge fan of stains to begin with because I personally don’t like the look. The actual stain is not orange but more of a rose color. When I put this on it felt like I had applied a weird orange jello to my lips and once it dried it look like I had eaten a red popsicle & not in a good way. I will tell you- the lasting power is INSANE. The place on my wrist where I did the swatch is still there and when I woke up this morning (after vigorously washing my face) my lips were still stained. According to the website, this is a gel-stain hybrid formula infused with Heat Shift™ technology that transforms into a rosy flush upon contact with your skin according to your body temperature. I think it is a very cool concept, good quality product and neat technology I’m just not a stain fan so I will be gifting!
Jor’el Parker The Original Fango Mud Therapy Mask– Deluxe Sample 1 oz.: $3.86
I live for a good mud mask. This face/body mask is great because its 100% vegan, paraben & sulfate free but I would say it’s rather average. Nothing ground breaking and nothing bad just a good ole average mud mask. It gave my face that tingling and then tight feeling after I rinsed which I like because it makes me feel like it’s really working. I will definitely keep using this! On a side note: the website is offering 30% off if you use the checkout code FANGO, so if you were wanting this mask now would be the time to purchase.
Manna Kadar LipLocked Priming Gloss Stain in Lucky (3 in 1) – FULL SIZE! $24.00
This is very similar to a liquid lipstick. The color is a beautiful nude petal pink and great for everyday wear! This product is a 3 in 1 because it contains a lip gloss, primer & stain all in one. It’s super moisturizing and has high pigment which is wonderful. This is the new holy grail in my lip collection & I’ve been using this gloss ever since I received it!
Dirty Little Secret Lipstick in Vengeance – FULL SIZE! $10.00
This lipstick has a very interesting shade. On my lips it’s a nice subtle purple shade which I like because I wouldn’t personally wear a loud purple lipstick (I’m not daring enough). It pushes me out of my normal comfort zone of nudes & reds which is always nice. It has great pigment and a creamy texture so I plan on keeping it to mix up my usual makeup routine during the week.
First round of swatches: So Susan Jello Shot Rosy Cheek & Lip Gel (top) and Jor’el Parker The Original Fango Mud Therapy Mask (bottom).
Lip swatches: Manna Kadar LipLocked Priming Gloss Stain in Lucky (on top) and Dirty Little Secret Lipstick in Vengeance (bottom)
Verdict: Another good bag from Lip Monthly! I feel like they are listening to feedback and adding a better variety of colors & quality. I’m keeping everything but the Cheek & Lip Gel so I’m happy. This bag totals up to $62.81 which is one of the higher values I’ve received yet. This month was a great deal given the $12.95 purchase price of the bag.
What do you think about May’s Lip Monthly bag? Did anyone receive the same products I did?
