Lip Monthly

Today I want to share with you lovely peeps a new amazing subscription service that will change your life (ok if not your WHOLE life at least your make up drawer for sure!). Lip Monthly is a packaged box of the best lip, beauty and cosmetic products out there: every month you will receive a goodies bag filled with FULL-SIZED lip glosses, lip sticks, lip liners, lip stains, lip plumpers and so much more!
If you're into beauty and cosmetics, this is a monthly beauty box that you don't want to miss out on. SERIOUSLY. Best part? Use the code "SHOPWEAR55" to get 55% off your first bag! :D

I received my first bag last month and I was so beyond excited to open it up and find out what was inside. So here's a peek into my May Lip Monthly bag:

A adorable floral printed pouch, 3 full sized lip products and a mud face mask!

Along with the products is a summary of their suggested retail price (a $70 retail value for under $13?! YES PLEASE!)

And here are the swatches.
- Jor'el Parker's mud therapy mask with sweet almond oil, avocado oil, green tea antioxidants and volcanic ash minarals is 100% vegan and never tested on animals. It feels refreshing and soothing on the skin and protects it from the damage caused by free radicals and pollutants while softly rejuvenating and exfoliating the skin. after applying it on my face and leaving it for ten minutes my skin felt deeply cleansed but still very hydrated.
- So Susan's rosy cheek and lip gel in "Hangover" is a cheek and lip tint 78% water-based and 99% natural. Vegan and hypoallergenic it's formulated in Italy and contains "Heat Shift" technology that instantly transforms this gel/stain hybrid into a healthy rosy flush upon contact onto the skin, according to your body temperature. I love how natural this tint looks on, I've been wanting a product like this for a very long time and I'm so happy I finally found it!
- Dirty Little Secret's lipstick in "Guilty Pleasure" is the brightest and most magnificent shade of pink I have ever seen. It applies wonderfully and stays on the lips for a very long time (it even survived a meal and drinks!).
- Manna Kadar's Liplocked priming gloss stain in "Manna Babe" is a mix between a lipgloss and a lipstain and brings together the best of both worlds. This super pigmented gloss makes your lips look so pouty and dreamy! It's glossy without being sticky and lasts so long on!

This was my first experience with a beauty subscription box and I am very pleased with it so far! I am very curious about what's to come into next month's bag :D I am one to always enjoy discovering and testing new products and I love that all these brands focus on natural beauty items but still deliver high quality results! I absolutely recommend Lip Monthly to all makeup junkies out there looking for a great value for their buck ;)

Thank you so much to lip monthly for sending this bag out to me.

Beauty for Real

Happy lazy Sunday beauties! Today I wanted to share with you a new brand that I totally fell in love with.
Beauty For Real is a Miami-based cosmetic company that produces essential, easy-to-use products with groundbreaking, high functioning formulas. They have collections for lips, eyes, cheeks and nails especially designed for women on the go. I couldn't believe it when I read their website but their core products feature built-in mirrors and LED lights for a perfect application anywhere you are!
What's even better? Their cosmetics are jam-packed with skin loving, plant derived antioxidants, essential oils and always paraben free.

I could go on and on about how much I loved these products but you know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So I'll just show you!

These are the three products I got to test out: the Get Glowing! cheek tint in the shade In The Pink and luminizer in the shade Get Lit, the InfraRed lip cream and the Purity Light Up Lip Gloss.

Both of the lip products come in an absolutely gorgeous packaging, they both include a mirror on the back and an LED in the applicator so that you can see exactly what you're doing at all times.

The InfraRed lip cream is very pigmented and comes out on your lips as exactly the same color you see in the container. I love the formula, very creamy but not sticky and very moisturizing.

The Purity lip gloss is a pumping gloss that leaves your lips feel so cool and full. The color is more sheer which makes your lips look naturally beautiful.

I was just as impressed by the cheek tint and luminizer combo. Their velvety texture makes them really easy to blend and they are highly pigmented. The luminizer was perfect for contouring and I sometimes also use it for the waterline of my eye, just to make my eye make up pop a little more.

I'm not going to lie, these Beauty For Real products have not left my make up bag since I really fell in love with them!
