June Lip Monthly Unboxing & Review

Happy Monday my Lovelies!!!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

You all know I looooove my subscription box services....Like...HELLOOO...
It's like Christmas every MONTH!

Today I have a NEW monthly subscription box service for you all to check out!!

I think if I had to pick a favorite makeup item....Lipstick would probably be my #1.
I may not wear it every day, but I love to collect different colors, brands, types and sizes of lip items. 
I feel like one can NEVER...EVER...have enough lippies in their makeup stash!
(Especially REDS!!!)

Lipsticks are like shoes for me.
They might be the "same" color....but they are different styles and go with different outfits!
Lipsticks can look like they are identical, but the finish is always different from tube to tube. 
Matte. Glossy. Satin. Pearl. Etc.
You get the picture.
I love having variety and options, especially in my lipstick drawer!

So, when I stumbled upon this new monthly box....I was SO excited because.....


<Cue the Heavenly Angle Music>

Let me introduce you to Lip Monthly Subscription Service! 

For only $10 a month, you get 2-3 Full Size Lip items, and 2-3 Sample Size items (Sometimes you get 4 Full Size Items like this month)!

Usually, you get ALL lip items and 1 fun other makeup item!

How was this box not MADE for ME!!!????

June was the 1st month I received this service, so I decided to do an "Unboxing" / 1st Impressions video for you!
This way we get to open my bag together!
It's like you are really WITH me on this one!!! YAY!
I have also included some lip swatches of my lip items at the end of the video for you too!!

Watch below to find out What's In The Bag!!!!!

What did you guys think!!??

Were you as impressed as I was?

Holy COW I can't believe the high quality items that were in this bag! (Oh and how stinkin CUTE is that makeup up they came in!? SO ME!!)

I really was blown away by the gorgeous lip colors in this bag! I love reds and pinks and these colors were SO perfect for summer...I still can't even get over it! It's like LipMonthly got in my head or something (and I LIKE it!!).

Here are the swatches and full reviews of the lippies!

(Gasp!! Look at those G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S. colors!!)

 Ok so...Right outta the GATE LipMonthly nailed it with this summer red!! I love that it is more orange toned and is a lighter red color. I will say it again..perfect summer red!
This lipstick is super smooth and easy to apply. 
No smell or taste at all!
Nothing. (YASSSSSS)
And it has a nice satin (semi shiny) finsh. 
It is very moisturizing and light on the lips. 
It is a typical satin finish lipstick (Satin usually is more sheer/thin) in that you will need to reapply throughout the day. But that doesn't bother me. 
I am definitely going to be looking into this "new to me" brand because I want every color!!!
 It does seem a bit expensive at $14...but it feels very high quality and I wouldn't mind spending that for this lipstick!

So Susan was another "new to me" brand in this bag...and I am SO glad it was in there!!
I'm a red lip fanatic...Blah blah blah you all know that...but this lip AND cheek mousse was a brand new brand, type, and texture for me.
I thought this was kind of like a glossy stain when I swatched it on my hand in the video, but when I put it on my lips it dried into a smooth matte red.
Be. Still. My. HEART!
This is seriously my NEW FAVE red lip item of all time. I am obsessed with how well this stuff applies, lasts, and looks!
It feels so light (since it's a mousse) and it dries quickly, but it doesn't dry out your lips like a lot of matte lip products do. 
It smells GREAT (fruity) and has no taste. 
YAAAY!I have yet to use it as a cheek color because I am obsessed with it on my lips! I have already used half the tube...and that's saying something since I haven't had it for a whole week yet AND I hardly EVER finish up a lip product.
Since this sinks into a matte finish, it does act like a lip stain so it lasts and LASTS. Like...I pretty much went to bed with red lips the other night!
At $17.50, I would say that the multipurpose aspect and staying power of this lip mousse make it worth every penny! (I would probably even pay up to $23 for it!)
Another WIN from Lip Monthly!!!

Ok, I know in my video I said this color is "My Jam"....and I didn't even notice that the actual color is Fig Jam....
<Insert knee slapping laugh here>
So this color is literally...jam... HA!
But anyways....After I stopped giggling at the name...
This pink is perfect!
I mean come on...I'm a girly girl...I love pink...and this is my PERFECT Go-To summer pink!!!
I really was super excited to get this color in my bag. 
I love that 2 out of the 4 Lip Monthly items are lip and cheek tints! How cool is that!? It totally doubles your products!
Out of all the lip items, this one has the strongest scent...but it's a pleasant fruity smell. It does have a bit of "taste" to it, but also not unpleasant. 
I am super sensitive to smells in my makeup and lip products, so when I say it's not bad...It's REALLY not bad!
This lip cream is on the sheer side, but it's super buildable!
I love that you can swipe some on for a light wash of color, or apply more for a POP of pink!
It is so light on the lips too! Even though it reminds me of a balm, it doesn't feel sticky or thick at all. Just light and perfect for summer! This is definitely going with me when I travel.
Even though I do love this one, the $19.95 price tag seems a bit much. They do give you a lot of product in the container and it does double as a cheek cream as well, so I can't complain!

 I love the fact that the Lip Monthly bag is mostly all lip items, and then they throw in a fun little makeup extra!
I love eyeshadow singles because they are so easy to travel with and you get a lot more product in a single than in a palette sometimes. 
I have used some other JCat products before, but I was new to their eye shadows.I love this pearly grey shade!
It's the perfect cool tone silver for a smokey eye!
This shadow doesn't have a lot of fallout either...YAY!
And it is super build-able too! 
I love that I can use it as a light grey or pack on more for a deeper color.
I wouldn't call this shadow a shimmer, it's more of a pearly-grey shade. 
Definitely a steal at $2.99 AND a great addition to this bag!



Are you guys loving this bag like I am!?

Seriously can't believe that this is only $10/month!
$54.44 total value guys!!!!!!
Make sure you go to and get your 1st month for only $5!!!!!!!
How is that not a serious STEAL!!??
