Lipstick Junkie February 2018 Review

This month is all about shaking off the winter blues. Let’s see what lip products I got!

The included info card gives some information about each of the items including the retail values and description of the theme.

Matteify Liquid Lipstick in Rain

Matteify Liquid Lipstick in Rain – Retail Value $10

This liquid lip is super matte, super purple, and super bright! I always like trying colors that are outside of my comfort zone and, honestly, I like this one. My problem is that it feels tacky the whole time I wear it and it fades off in chunks. It’s also a little tough to apply with even coverage with the applicator.

Honeybee Garden Truly Natural Lipstick in Thoroughbred

Honeybee Gardens Truly Natural Lipstick in Thoroughbred – Retail Value $13.99

It’s nice to see a more neutral shade in the mix this month. This lipstick has several organic oils in it to moisturize lips while giving them a wash of color. While the actual stick feels a little dry, it glides on once it warms a little and really does moisturize. This shade is a sheer, rosy-nude that I feel is pretty universally flattering.

TINT Beauty Unicorn Lippies in Forever After

TINT Beauty Unicorn Lippies in Forever After – Retail Value $16

This is a matte, muted coral with subtle shimmer and an opaque finish that lasts for hours. It’s easy to apply but did dry my lips out a little. I’m still looking for the magic balm to put on top of matte lip colors to make them more comfortable without affecting the wear time.

Poise Cosmetics Hydrating Luxe Lipstick in Frida

Poise Makeup Professional Hydrating Luxe Lipstick in Frida – Retail Value $18 (found here for $14.40)

Ok, my monochromatic game is really strong here! This may be too dark of a shade for me to wear, well, really ever, but the formula is fantastic. It’s rich, smooth, and so comfortable. I like that the finish is “semi-satin” because it doesn’t accentuate my lip lines. Plus, I think this color needs the added depth that the shine gives to it.

Here are swatches of all of the products (left to right): Honeybee Garden lipstick, Poise Lipstick, Matteify Liquid Lip, and TINT Lippie.

Verdict: This month’s Lipstick Junkie has a value of $57.99. I’d say it’s a 50/50 for me. The two lighter shades are certainly ones I will wear and the two darker shades are probably going to be sitting pretty on my vanity and not on my lips. I was pleasantly surprised by most of the formulas. I think that if you like to play around with lip color and like to try new brands you may not find yourself, then this box is a good value. It probably isn’t suited for someone who likes only neutral tones. I expect that we’ll start seeing some brighter colors next month now that warmer weather is coming (hopefully).

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. That last color might be out of your comfort zone but it looks incredible on you!!

    Why is the the FEB box when it is almost April? Just behind on reviews or this box always a month behind???

    • Thanks, Michelle!

      I’m playing catch-up with some of reviews. These boxes ship and arrive around the middle of the current month (subscribers are rebilled on the 15th of each month).

  2. You must be one of the lucky ones who have a neutral undertone or something because you always look stunning in everything. I don’t think I’ve seen you look bad in any color lippie. Lucky!

  3. I think all these colors are pretty on you, but the purple is so flattering. It just makes your eyes and face pop.

  4. You looked great in all the colors. I’m looking for a good lipstick subscription box. Can anyone recommend a good one? Lip junkie looks really good! I like the mix of light, dark and bold. I cancelled lip monthly years ago because everything I got was so light. It didn’t pay for itself. You actually have to like half the box your getting or its a waste of money. I had never heard of Lip Junkie so thank you so much for the review.

  5. I think you look fab in all those colors! I love the purple shade, but I’m very happy to have your review to know that it doesn’t wear well.

  6. You can use the black by mixing it up with a deep red. Ive seen it done and looks awesome

  7. I guess you didn’t like my post ?

  8. Love your hair up!

  9. You look great in all of the shades. I just wished the box was $15.00. Thanks for the review.

  10. Ok I need to say one complaint about your reviews… that it’s really hard to tell if I will like the things you show… BECAUSE YOU LOOK SO FREAKING GOOD IN EVERYTHING !!!! Lol !!! like honestly I don’t think I have ever seen you show something on you that you don’t rock !! Even the stuff you say you personally are a fan of I’m sitting here like wtf is she talking about she looks amazing !! Uggh to only have that face… but also you just so like a personality through your pictures like a spark of sass or something I can’t really explain but you just wear everything, it doesn’t wear YOU if that makes any sense. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
