Hello Glamazons!

 

I discovered an international subscription service which ships worldwide. Its called the Lip Monthly and is a God send for all those who love lip products.

For the price of $13/- only you get a total of 4 products in an adorable bag. 3 of the 4 products are lip related and one is non lip related.

Recently Lip Monthly has started allowing customizations. They send their subscribers an email to inform them that customization is open.

You simply log into your account access the customization link and choose the shade you want. Lip Monthly packages ship out by the 10th of every month.

You receive a tracking number with the shipment details, however it only shows entry into India through Mumbai, on the DHL website. The bag itself arrives in a wonderful gold bubble wrap lined envelope, which not only gives the goodies protection but also looks pretty.

The March Lip Monthly in all its goodness!

Evelyn Iona LIPGLOSS isn’t sticky-icky but instead creamy and lush, adding a plumpifying coat of goodness to your lips. In fact, you could even eat it – made from Bark Extract (tightens and plumps lips), Oregano (works as an antioxidant) Vitamin E (natural moisturizer), Coconut oil (helps fight signs of ageing) & Shea Butter (helps heal skin and improve its general appearance) and many other natural ingredients that are hydrating for your lips.

Coastal Scents Lipstick | In the shade ’06’

This is a luscious lipstick in a creamy,shimmery shade. These lipsticks are paraben free.

Leaders USA Face Mask | In the variant ‘Caribbean Coconut Calming Mask’

This is my favorite product in the bag this month. 7 Wonders Caribbean Coconut Calming Mask is an advanced bio-cellulose mask that calms red and irritated skin and leaves skin soothed and refreshed.
This ones right up my alley as I do have redness on my face which I need to continuously cover up with foundation and I wonder how did Lip Monthly know what skin type I have.
They don’t make you fill a questionnaire.  Guess random selection just worked out for me.
Considering you pay only Rs.870/- for a monthly subscription (shipping is free world wide) you get 4 products worth Rs. 4,619/- only. The bag literally pays for itself 5 times over!!

So that my review.I hope you enjoyed reading this.

Born To Be Loved | Lip Love | February,2017

Hello Glamazons!

Today we will be reviewing the So Susan Lip Love Beauty Subscription bag for February,2017. Lip Love is a beauty subscription service which ships worldwide.

The Lip Love bag  comes at a subscription fee of $20.95 (USD) per month.That works out to roughly Rs. 1,421/- only per month.

This price includes the cost of shipping. For the price of $21/- (almost) only you get 4-5 whimsically packaged products in a very pretty and whimsical makeup bag.

Lip Love is a beauty subscription bag managed by So Susan Cosmetics so they decides on your products for the month. No need to fill a preference questionnaire.

Typically the products you receive are : eye shadows, mascaras, lip gloss or a lipstick etc. This month Lip Love celebrated lovable people. (I think!)

Here are my two cents on this. Human beings are born out of love.

A man and a woman come together due to a sense of attraction seated in a place of love.They make love and a baby is born.

Literally, this baby is born out of love. I read somewhere that when babies are little, if they are not held or touched they can die.

Such is the requirement of love in a a human beings life and it starts as early as infancy. I couldn’t resist the quote below as I so agree with it.

We as human beings have an inherent need to be loved and we never outgrow it or stop wanting it.

Beautiful statement and the genesis of the themes of the Lip Love Bag in the month of February,2017 – Born To Be Loved

Lip Love has recently changed up their makeup pouches.They were doing make up bags in canvas with whimsical (almost juvenile!) prints though philosophical quotes.

This time they seemed to be targeting a more mature audience. From January I notice that they’ve changed the concept of the bag a bit.

They still do the philosophical quote what with ‘Dream Big, Dare Greatly’ last month and ‘Born To Be Loved’ this month but they have changed up the print and the material of the bag.

There’s a motif on the bag much like last month.This time its a yellow swan.

The material is a kind of thick-ish faux leather as compared to the canvas though frankly that was quite interesting! The bag itself is a white background with prints of yellow swans.

Across all of this are the words ‘Born To Be Loved.’

Have a look at the bag below:

Now lets have a look at the products I received:

  1. Lip Brush | So Susan | $18.00
Image result for lip brush so susan

I’m always happy to receive makeup brushes in subscription boxes. This lip brush is of good quality.

I can’t make out whether the bristles are synthetic or not and I am yet to use it as I tend to apply lipstick straight from the tube.

I notice that this bush has a longer handle than most and that is good as it allows for more control especially with liquid lipsticks.

2. Liquid Matte | In the shade ‘Moon Nude’| So Susan | $14.00

I am not sure this product is going to show up on me given the color.The formula itself is good but its as if I am applying applying concealer on my lips.

I wonder if I can double it up as a concealer.

3. Sponge Bronzer | Trifle Cosmetics | $19.00

I am not big on bronzers but I believe this one is “ultra-smooth” and provides for “seamless application.” I think this would do well for contouring and a blush as well.

Here I have to say, that I find the packaging of this product a tad juvenile. All of Trifle Cosmetics products look like kids makeup or a dolls makeup rendered in plastic.

I remember having a make believe lipstick, mirror and blush which came with a doll of mine when I was little. They must seriously consider changing their packaging.

4.Supercharged| In the shade ‘Electric’  | Jelly Pong Pong | $23.00

Image result for liquid matte lipstick so susan

I love eye shadow so easily this is the most favorite product out of the bag.This product has good pigmentation and I love the shimmer too.

The advantage of this color array is that its a universal shade which will work with all skin tones. Again the problem that I have with it is the packaging.

Why is it so juvenile?! If I was to purchase this product from a store I would not purchase it due to the packaging alone!

The outer part is still okay but the eye shadow pack itself is like toy/dolls makeup. Is this product targeted at tweens?

If Trifle Cosmetics ever reads this, then please know this is the only angst I have with your products. Or let me know if I am not the target audience.

How about something a little classier, elegant and sophisticated Trifle?

 

Anyway, the total value of this bag totals to $86/- only. And that’s my review.

I hope you enjoyed reading this. Today I have reached the magic number of 18 followers.

Thank you if you helped me reach this number. Help me reach my new target of 25 followers please.

Like,comment,share and subscribe to this blog. Thank you for your time and remember to be kind to yourself ‘coz there’s no one like you.

Much Love!

Have a look at the very cute bag.

Considering you pay only Rs.871/- for a monthly subscription (shipping is free world wide) you get 4 products worth Rs. 4,620/- only. The bag literally pays for itself 5 times over!!

Usually they send a different designed bag every month, however I noticed, that this month the have simply renamed their May,2016 bag as July,2016  and sent it out to not only to their first time subscribers but also to some regular subscribers. I was reading a few reviews and some subscribers are pretty upset with them.

Nonetheless, since this was my first time subscription I was quite fine with receiving this bag, having never received one before. Lets look at each of these products now:

Mana Kadar: Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain | Shade name ‘Lucky’

Of the lot this was the most classy, quite like a higher end luxury brand. It comes in a perfectly rectangular , solid glass bottle with black cap.

IMG_0035.JPG
Introducing | Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain in ‘Lucky’

Its got a sponge tip applicator which I’ve always preferred over the brush ones. The shade is a kind of a muddy pink and will go well over my skin tone.

IMG_0033

DLS LipstickShade name ‘Vengeance’

Check out the very adorable packaging

 

 

I am a sucker for polka dots and the color black!The packaging combines both !!

DLS expands to Dirty Little Secret ! Quite a cheeky name for a lipper 🙂

The lipstick tube seems to be of good quality, its a matte black with ‘DLS‘ printed on the cap. When you open the tube, it has ‘Dirty Little Secret’ written at the base.

IMG_0037
So cute and different

The color is a fuchsia, magenta-ish kind of a shade.

 

IMG_0032
Swatch | DLS in ‘Vengeance

 

So Susan Jello ShotShade name ‘Hangover’

Check out the fun, tropical – themed package design

 

The packaging has a lot of information on it. This is a double performing product it not only goes over your lips but will also double up as a cheek stain.

The box claims that the product is 78% water based and 99% natural. The box also describes the product as “A gel stain hybrid formula infused with Heat Shift (TM) technology that instantly transforms into a healthy, rosy flush upon contact onto your skin, according to your body temperature.”

Lets see how the swatches work out. By the way this product is cruelty free and vegan.

IMG_0031
Swatch | So Susan Jello Shot in ‘Hangover’

When So Susan decided that this product should be a stain they weren’t joking! After I took this photograph, while I was easily able to wipe off all swatches from my finger tips, this one just wouldn’t wipe off! It also has a ‘pineapply’ fragrance to it.

Jorel Parker Face Mask :

This is the non lip product in the bag. As the name suggests its a face mask and claims to be vegan and cruelty free.

 

IMG_0030.JPG
This mask can be applied to face and body 

 

This mask seems to be well suited for my skin type. I have a feeling that its a clay based  mask.

 

IMG_0034

I quite enjoy face masks and own quite a few of them. This one is infused with Sweet Almond and Avocado Oil, Green Tea Antioxidants and Volcanic Ash Minerals.

So that my review. I hope you enjoyed reading this.

Thank you for your time and remember to be kind to yourself ‘coz there’s no one like you.

Much Love!
