I’m a huge fan of all beauty products that focus on lips. Lip glosses, lipsticks, lip liners, lip primers, lip stains, lip balms… So when I stumbled upon Lip Monthly, a subscription service that provides full-size lip products for only $10 a month (+$5 for international shipping), I of course had to try it.

You can sign up for one month for $10, four months for $40, or do an annual subscription for $100, which gives you the opportunity to test the box before you commit long-term – definitely a plus!

The Reveal!

My December Lip Monthly bag consisted of 4 exciting goodies that I pretty much immediately fell in love with. They were:

Magnolia MakeUp Lipstick w/Applicator – $15

Milani Brilliant Shine Gloss – $4.99

LA Girl Automatic Liner – $5

NYC Lipstick – $.99-$2.99

If you do the math, that adds up to at least $25.98, so you’re getting a huge deal with the $10 monthly subscription!


My favourite product was the Magnolia MakeUp Ultra Matte Lipstick in Matador . This product goes on as a liquid and dries matte. It has impeccable staying power and even though it dries matte, it doesn’t dry out your lips in the process, making it perfect for winter! This product is comparable to a Limecrime Velvetine, though I might like Magnolia’s version a tiny bit better. I paired it with the LA Girl Automatic Liner in True Red for a super gorgeous, deep red. Insert quick selfie here:


My NYC lipstick came in the colour ‘Mocha‘ which is a gorgeous, sheer nude. It goes perfectly with pretty much any outfit or makeup look, and leaves your lips feeling soft and hydrated.

Last, but definitely not least, Milani’s Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss in Coral Crush gives the perfect pop of subtle colour to any look. Wear it on its own or over top of your favourite nude or coral lipstick! Milani has a variety of other shades for this product, so make sure you check them out!

All-in-all, I loved my Lip Monthly December bag. It was everything and more than I thought it would be and I would highly recommend it to fellow lippie lovers out there. Not only does it deliver monthly surprises directly to your door, it introduces you to products and brands you may not have heard of otherwise! For $10/month, how can you go wrong?!
