Lip Monthly is a monthly makeup subscription that is all about your lips. Every month you will receive a unique bag of 4-5 items mostly for lips, although other cosmetics may appear from time to time.

The bags are now made of fabric. I prefer them to the old plastic bags. I’ve previously received this same pattern in February.

DEAL: Subscribe for a whole year and get 3 bags free with 3FREE or use coupon code LIPLOVER1 to get your first bag for $5.

We did not receive an info card this month.

Jing-Ai Lip Jewel ($14) This is the second Lip Jewel I have been sent by Lip Monthly and I like them. The formula is nice and it’s paraben-free. Raspberry Ice is a vivid berry colour.

Manna Kadar Liplocked Lip Priming Wand ($24) I am so tired of Manna Kadar. On top of that I’ve received this exact product in Lip Monthly before. The products themselves are fine but I don’t need 10 of them.

ModelCo Long Wear Lipstick ($17) I love this colour — Kitty is a neutral rosey pink. Unfortunately it smells very waxy like a crayon, which is a bit unpleasant.

Cargo Essential Eyeshadow Palette ($30) This quad is handy for novice makeup enthusiasts as it provides coordinating shades and instructions on where to use them. I have SO many neutrals already, so this is going to make an awesome gift. I couldn’t find this for sale anywhere — Cargo often discontinues their products — so my pricing is a guess.

Swatches of the lip products: Kitty, Manna Kadar, Raspberry Ice.

This month’s bag was interesting. I’m really, really tired of Manna Kadar and especially since we received this exact item previously. The only item I’ll be keeping for myself is the lip jewel, but the value overall is again impressive — $85. If you don’t mind the repeat brands, Lip Monthly is still one of the most high value bags for a cheap price.

    This is my second month I’ve been signed up and still have not received anything. It still says my order is in the warehouse. Plus every time I go to the website it says it’s not private and gives me a warning not to enter the site. I get about six sub boxes a month and so far this has been the worse.

    I received a orange concealer corrector and it smells terrible. Have you heard of anyone else having this problem? I’m now going into my third month with this subscription.

    Its weird that this is what you got, because even on their FB and Instagram, this wasn’t what they were sending out. The bag shown was the one we got in January. This month (April), was a blue bag, and had a Be a Bombshell lip gloss, a So Susan Matte Liquid Lipstick, a cover up pen, and an Estate Cosmetics lipstick.

      Go figure. We haven’t had a lot of success re: communication with Lip Monthly – they’re not the best. There were (allegedly) customisation options introduced a few months ago which we were never able to access, either. They need to sort out a lot of the behind the scenes issues.

      And yes, I noted in the review that the bag design was one received previously. I received the January bag and reviewed it as well, so it’s not a case of this being just a late shipment.

    My April bag and contents are nothing like the one reviewed. I love what I got in my bag !

      I’m happy you enjoyed your bag. I personally am pretty bored with Lip Monthly and find them lacklustre now.
