Lip Monthly July 2014 Review


Being a Lip Monthly ambassador I have received my very first Lip Monthly box for referring others. When I heard about this company I was saying why would I want a box full of lip products every month then I decided to give it a try that's when I signed up to become the ambassador, so that I could receive a free box and I started to share my links and I got a few referrals in no time. I have no regrets on getting this box and I am in love with the colour selection of lip products that I received. My Lip Monthly box included:
  • Appeal Cosmetics - Red Light District 
  • City Color Cosmetics Lip Balm - Mauve
  • City Color Cosmetics Lip Lush Luscious Lip Crayon - Mahogany
  • Revlon Color Burst Lip Gloss - Sunbaked (044)
  • and the monthly mix up item is John Frieda Straight fixation Smoothing Creme.
They also placed a little note in the box stating that they will be launching a Lip Shop in a few weeks, so these items will be available for purchasing after trying them out. They also plan to give the monthly boxes a theme. The note also stated the name of each products included in the box. The note can be read below:

Lip Monthly Note

My short review of the lip products that I received and the one monthly mixed up products:

City Color Lip Lush Luscious Lip Crayon - Mahogany
I love this lip crayon, it glides on very easily and it will last up to hours, but you might want to reapply after eating heavily. It can be used to line the lips and it goes good with a shade of red, you can mix it up with the colour of your choice, create an ombre lip if you like.

City Color Lip Lush Luscious Lip Crayon - Mahogany


Revlon Color Burst Lip Gloss - Sunbaked (044)
This lip gloss is not sticky, the textured feels very smooth on my lips and it helps to hydrate and prevent my lips from drying out. The wand that is use to apply feels a little flimsy, I could feel it wobbling while I apply the gloss to my lips.

Revlon Color Burst - Sunkissed (044)

City Color Cosmetics Lip Balm - Mauve
I love the fact that this lip balm is in a roll up tube instead of a pot. I can simple roll up the balm and apply it to my lips, unlike the pot balm I would have to use a lip brush or my fingers which can be a messy sometimes. This lip balm also has a fruity scent with a little bit of shimmer.

City Color Cosmetics Lip Balm - Mauve

Appeal Cosmetics - Red Light District
This is a bright red lipstick, application is smooth and the formula is very creamy. It has a satin finish.

Appeal Cosmetics Lipstick - Red Light District

John Frieda  Frizz-Ease Straight Fixation
This product claims to smooth away frizz & keeps hair silky-straight for up to 24hrs. I have ethnic hair, so I'm not sure if this product would work for me but I can give it a try and update the results.

Ipsy Glam Bag July 2014 Review

I always enjoy receiving my monthly glam bags and finding the sneak peeks for the coming month glam bag. I received my tracking info. on a different date than the usual, luckily my glam bag was already shipped and close to being delivered. I was slightly disappointed when my glam room went up and I saw tanning oil in my glam room since I have no use for tanners, anyways I was hoping that I would get the Elizabeth Mott Tints & Sass fabulous lip + cheek stain and I totally did. By far it's my favorite product in this July glam bag.

The theme for July's glam bag is Sensationally Sunkissed, items included would prep any Ipster for the summer season.

Ipsy Theme Card

Every subscriber received 5 products and they were placed in a cute pink scallop trim leather looking bag.

Ipsy July Glam Bag

My bag consisted of 5 products that suites the summer season:

bareMinerals 5 in 1 BB advanced performance cream eyeshadow (Broad Spectrum SPF 15)
I received this in the shade divine wine, it is very creamy and when applied it dries to a matte shimmery finish and it doesn't smudge once it's dried up properly. It has a long lasting staying power and it can be used to help prevent sunburn.

Swatches

Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil SPF 08
I don't tan therefore I don't have any use for tanning oil on my skin but I have heard that it has other benefits and it can be used in the hair and also as a shaving oil. Since I hate using razors on my skin I might just use this product in my hair and wait on the outcome of the results that I will be achieving.

Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil SPF 08

benefit they're Real! beyond mascara
This mascara is not new to me, I have being using it for quiet awhile now and I love how it makes my lashes look full and longer. The only problem I have is applying it on my lower lashes. The design of the brush makes it difficult to reach the lower lashes and gives it the desired definition. It does not make your lash clumpy or flaky.

Lavilin Jojoba Skin Soother Gel Cream
The benefits of this product is to sooth and restore the natural luster of the skin for e.g if you have itchy or dry skin it can help to soften and hydrate the area. It is also works on sunburns/over exposure to the sun  and it is suitable to be used in intimate areas. Best uses: place it in the fridge to get cool then apply to desired area.

Elizabeth Mott Tints & Sass fabulous lip + cheek stain
I fell in love with this lip + cheek stain from the first time I saw it. The formula is liquid like that is not too thick or too thin. I preferably use it as a lip tint than a cheek stain and I like how it makes my lips has this red cherry look and it goes good with brown colours and it can also be worn under your favorite lipstick.

Even though I did not enjoy the full usage of products I received in my ipsy glam bag, I would still recommend it to a friend. There is a good chance that you might find a product that you can fall in love with and for just $10 monthly it is well worth trying. Sign up to be apart of the monthly subscription here: http://www.ipsy.com/r/192n

If you are not familiar with ipsy, it is a monthly beauty subscription service where you get 4-5 products per month and these glam bags are curated to match your personality by Michelle Phan.
