Lipstick Junkie April 2018 Review
This month includes 4 lip colors to take us into spring.
The included info card gives some information about each of the items including the retail values and description of the theme.
Hello Waffle: Lipstick in Tuxedo – Retail Value $5.75
Lipstick Junkie had this shade specially made by Hello Waffle to commemorate Tuxedo, their beloved cat who recently passed away. This semi-sheer black has a balmy consistency and feels pretty moisturizing. My tube won’t twist up, but that’s ok because I’m not a black lip kinda girl.
She Believes Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Mojo – Retail Value $9.50
This is a pretty sheer pink gloss with lots of pink and silver shimmer. Here I’ve worn it by itself but it would also be great layered over lipstick. It has a subtle sweet scent and is thick without being sticky.
IBY Beauty High-Intensity Lipstick in Pout – Retail Value $12
I’ve received so many of these vibrant pink lipsticks lately! This is a cool toned fuschia with a satin finish. It feels great on my lips and blots down evenly leaving a nice stain.
Sorme Cosmetics Hydra Moist Lipstick in Chemistry – Listed Value $17
Very moisturizing and matte without looking dry, this lipstick wears well and smells like chocolate. This shade is like a coral nude and can take me from day to night pretty easily.
Here are swatches of the lip colors.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $44.25. That’s about half the value that I received last month and not quite double the cost of the box. While I like the products, with the exception of the black lipstick, the value falls a little flat for me this month. Plus, it seems like I’m getting a lot of repeated colors. Lipstick Junkie is updating their subscription for next month, so I’m looking forward to some positive changes.
