Each month, Lip Monthly includes a card with an intro to the products will their values. I found that the given values were different than what was listed on the sites. I have broken that down below.
This month’s bag is a bit different than their usual. It is a plain drawstring canvas bag that you are supposed to design and post a picture of on Instagram with the hashtag #summerLM and tag @lipmonthly. If you do, you’ll be entered to win one of ten annual subscriptions.
Steve Laurant Lipgloss in Ballerina – Value $22 ( info card says $16)
A nice light pink/nude shade that applies like a liquid lip color but wears like a gloss. It is comfortable to wear and last for several hours without drying out my lips.
Model Co Lip Crayon in Red Velvet – Value $18 (info card says $17)
This is a dark, cool-tone red that has a semi-matte, velvety texture. It applies evenly and wears off after a couple of hours into a red stain.
Seraphine Botanicals Lip Crayon in Quince + Crimson – Value $24 (info card says $22)
Whoa, this is bright. I kind of like it though! This crimson lip and cheek crayon is long-lasting and ultra-matte. I find this to be a bit too bright for my cheeks and not as easily smudgeable as I want. It wears off into a more wearable stain on lips without becoming blotchy.
Cargo Water Resistant Bronzer, 0.10 oz. – Value $6.40
The info card says that this item was supposed to be a Cargo blush worth $14, but this is what I received. It is a mid-tone bronzer with the slightest shimmer. I don’t know how swimming with this on would go, but it did last through a sweaty workout session.
Here are all of the swatches next to each other. From top to bottom on the right: Steve Laurant Ballerina, Model Co Lip Crayon, Seraphine Lip Crayon, and Cargo Bronzer. The swatch on the left is the Seraphine Lip Crayon smudged out as it suggests for use on your cheeks.
Verdict: I really liked this month’s Lip Monthly and with a value of $70.40, I think it is a great way to try new lip products for a cost of $12.95 with free shipping. I think the dark red lip crayon fell outside of the theme of summer lip products but the other two shades were perfect plus a bronzer that doesn’t melt off in this heat.
