Lip Monthly December 2017 - Info Card Back

The included card looks like it could be used as a gift tag. It doesn’t include the typical info like description and price that is usually listed.

I’m a little surprised to see a sample size in here since Lip Monthly is all about full-size products. But, I really like this lip treatment. It is full of oils and butters to help smooth out dry lips and the light pink tint gives a hint of color.

This dark berry lip liner works well when paired with another complimenting lip color (like the one below) or on its own. The color is rich and water resistant making it a great matte option. My lips were a little dry when I swatched this above and the pencil doesn’t offer much moisture so a good scrub would be beneficial.

This is such a great dark berry shade for winter. Unfortunately, I could not get smooth coverage. I kept seeing streaky spots and applying another layer just took the color off underneath. The finish is comfortable and long lasting so maybe I’ll try a different color to see if it goes on more evenly.

Here is the non-lip product for this month. It’s a subtle illuminator that can be used as a highlighter or mixed into moisturizer or foundation to add a glowing effect. The formula is like a lotion too so it works well for my dry skin.

Here are all of the swatches next to each other. From top to bottom: Hanalei Lip Treatment, Manna Kadar Illuminator, Bellápierre Lip Creme, IBY Lip Liner.

Verdict: This month’s Lip Monthly was mostly good for me. With a value of $61.42, I like that I get to try new lip products for a cost of $12.95 with free shipping. I like the lip treatment but was a little disappointed to find it is a sample. The lip creme was the only product that wasn’t great for me. If you love lip products, this is a good low-cost way to try a few new ones each month.

To Wrap Up:

Tiffany found out about subscription boxes from a friend who followed MSA. The curiosity started with mystery beauty boxes and grew into an addiction from there. Beauty, clothes, home…she loves the sight of a subscription box in the mail.

  1. Unfortunately I’m having lots of issues with lip monthly. I’ve had several non-full sized products. They have not had enough stock so I’ve had multiple items which were not supposed to be in the bags, usually cheaper and not good substitutes, I received a broken item which they replaced with s sample size face mask product. Lastly the three bags I have received have all been really late. Please beware before subscribing!

  2. Heads up for January – Cosmoholic liquid lipstick is listed on the card as full size for $24.99, it is actually the mini for $10. Also, they list Isabelle Dupont lip color for $16.99. They send an Isabelle Dupont eyeliner, which I cannot find outside of a New Zealand listing. Isabelle Dupont High Defining Eyeliner. The company’s almost useless webpage (product links go to the top of the current page) shows a different product with a slightly different design, Perfect Eyeliner Pen.

  3. I got a set of Bellapierre that included a lip liner and kiss proof liquid from Tj Maxx. It wore better and went on much more evenly using the liner. I don’t know if there was anything special about their brand of lip liner, but try it with one and see if you get better coverage. I have bought several colors, including their metallic and been really happy!

  4. Using Firefox or Chrome works. I had the same problem trying to access my account until I tried Chrome,

    • Thanks! I didn’t even think to try a different browser. haha.

  5. I always enjoyed my Lip Monthly subscription, so I tried to re-subscribe earlier this month, but when I attempted to click the button to order the subscription nothing would happen; almost like it wasn’t linked to anything. Oh well, I just take it as a sign it wasn’t meant to be this year. Maybe next year on my next go round with subs.

    • I had the same problem with them. They keep emailing me wanting me back but their site doesn’t work. I actually commented on one of their Instagram posts and was told to call their customer service. I’m thinking that it’s just too much trouble for me and a sign that I really didn’t need it after all 😉😊💋
