Hola Neon Liquid Lipstick in Iconic – Value $17
This liquid lip color is a metallic, golden-reddish color that goes on smoothly and dries down to a long-lasting finish. It doesn’t dry out my lips and can make it through dinner with only a little touch up needed around the inner side of my lips.
IBY Lip Liner Pencil in Berry – Value $14
I love berry color lips and this shade is great! I used the primer included this month (keep reading) first and it helped this pencil apply with great coverage and no tugging. Plus, it is water resistant so it can outlast that drink you want to sip on poolside.
Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Natural Rose – Value $8
This is a great moisturizing lip balm that applies more like a creamy lipstick. It has more coverage than my other tinted lip balms but isn’t quite opaque. The shimmery rose color is a nice shade for my lighter skin tone.
Manna Kadar Prime Time – Value $24
Prime Time is a light tinted primer that can be used for under eye, full face, or, as the info card suggests, to prime lips. Here I have primer on my bottom lip to show how it looks. I used this before applying the IBY lip liner pencil and I think it helped the color go on smoother with a more opaque look.
Here are all of the swatches next to each other. From top to bottom: Manna primer, IBY lip pencil, Hola liquid lipstick, and Pixi lip balm.
Verdict: This month’s Lip Monthly was mostly a hit for me. With a value of $63, I like that I get to try new lip products for a cost of $12.95 with free shipping. I really like the berry lip liner and the primer trick will come in handy for my liquid lip colors. The Hola liquid lip felt a bit heavy for the summer poolside theme but will be a good transitional color for later in the season.
