Lip Monthly July 2016: Review, Swatches & Makeup Look

Summer’s all about bright lip colours and Lip Monthly July 2016‘s bag is going to give you all of that! Bright, cheery and perky lips is what you’re going to get with the selection of lipsticks in this month’s cutesy orange bag!
“Summer” is what the little orange says, illustrated with a pair of blue shades. It’s just cute collecting all the Lip Monthly bags because their really great for bringing some small makeup items for touch up on-the-go. Shall we peer into the details of the 4 full-sized goodies?

The one lipstick that instantly caught my attention is the Mirabella Colour Vinyl Lipstick in Cherry Shine. As the name suggests, it’s in a bright cherry red shade. I like that the packaging has a half-and-half matte and shiny texture on it. The paraben-free formula matches up to the somewhat quality packaging. This is exactly like a full coverage lipstick marrying a lip gloss. With its patent-pending Super Shine Technology, you’re in for a luminous pout!
Featuring Berry Flux Vita, a raspberry extract, for intense moisturisation while Argan Oil helps the formula to glide onto lips and the antioxidant, Litchi Chinensis Fruit Extract, rejuvenates lips. Sounds decent, right? I can assure you that it really provides deep moisturisation and I love how it glides on as though it blends into your lips! Thumbs up for this one!
Another lipstick sitting in the bag waiting to be unfolded is the City Color City Chic Lipstick in Heartbreaker, a sweet raspberry red. I’ve always been exposed to City Color’s lipsticks because if you’ve been following @dupethat, you’ll realise that this brand’s lipsticks are frequently used as dupes for M.A.C.’s lipsticks! At USD4.99, honestly? This is a steal. With a creamy and highly pigmented forumla, the price point is just insane! If only City Color is readily available in Asia, I would totally stock up a whole bunch of these.
The next one is something I’d probably never use because I am contented with the size and thickness of my lips It’s none other than the Cougar Perfect Pout Lip Plumper. Honestly speaking, I’ve tried it and it works by plumping the lips, giving them volume. It also has a texture that of a lip gloss but nt too sticky so you don’t have to worry about putting gooey stuff on your lips. However, at £29, I’m glad that I have it in this month’s bag. I wouldn’t get a lip plumper for that price point!
The last item is usually a non-lip related product and I am so glad it’s an eyeshadow! The Bellapierre Shimmer Powder in Cinnabar is the perfect blend of rose pink with bronze undertone. I just love the metallic sheen on this pigment! In my opinion, this shade should work as a nice bronzy blush too for darker skin tones. Using 100% pure Mica powder, the shimmer powder provides long lasting, vibrant colour. Recommended by make-up artists and dermatologists, Bellapierre shimmer powders are 100% hypoallergenic and are suitable for all skin types! Now that’s an interesting fact to note.
Swatches here! These were all done in one swipe. I’m impressed by the quality in this month’s bag! Though I feel that the bag should be reaching me at the start of the month instead.. I am still liking this service so far. At USD12.95, you get 4 full-sized quality products in a cute makeup bag, what more can you ask for?
Specially for you Paradeoflove readers, you can enjoy this makeup subscription service at a steal! Key in ROANNA55 to receive 55% off on your first bag (U.P. USD12.95) at http://lipmonthly.com/! Free International shipping applies too!

XOXO, Roanna.
