The March Lip Monthly bag had ups and downs as I feel all subscription boxes/bags like this tend to do. Hey it’s gonna be hard to please everyone with everything all of the time isn’t it?
First up in the bag was this Cargo Blush/Bronzer duo, valued at $10 USD at first glance I thought how hard it was going to be to get the products out of the pan as it was so small. I still wonder just how I would do it… After giving it a good old swatch-a-roo I found the pink blush colour to be lacking in pigmentation, this took quite a few attempts to bring up the colour you see below.
Side note: Please ignore the burn on my arm, the curling iron won that battle.
After giving the bronzer a go, I think it’s safe to say this is going to be way too dark/warm toned for me, however there definitely is a lot of pigmentation going on. This is not a matte bronzer, it is lovely and glowy. I think I’ll be passing this one on to someone who isn’t quite as pasty as I am.
The next little number I picked out was this Camilla Lipstick valued at $14 USD, in the shade “44”. My initial thoughts were “how cute is the packaging” so very Mac like… Then I opened it and POW I was greeted with this bright pink/ fuchsia colour. It definitely has some purple going on in there. This photo just doesn’t do it justice. While I can see a lot of people loving the colour, and I do, it’s just not one that I can see myself wearing. It’s just too loud for me. Though I totally wish I could rock it. The formula seems smooth to apply and doesn’t seem to drying.
I was pretty surprised when I pulled out another Camilla product that I could also see said it was “44”. Then the bells started going off in my head, the light bulb turned on and it all came together. They sent a matching lip gloss. What a great idea. I was totally chuffed with the idea. I love ,love, love the colour of the gloss, the application, the pigmentation. This one I can see myself wearing as it’s not quite as loud as the lipstick. Also valued at $14 USD this would be my favourite product in the bag.
The fourth and final product for this month was this Ecolips Tinted Balm valued at $4.49 USD. I’m a blistex girl, who if you have been following me long enough you would know. Never, ever have I found something that I feel trumps the good old blistex. Due to this, I feel like getting lip balms in packages like this is a waste, but this is just me and my weirdness.
This particular one has a tint to it, the tint to me appears brown. Brown isn’t really something I want on my lips. Each to their own, but to me, no thank you. The smell is an interesting one, it’s not bad, it’s not great. The flavour is Sugar Plum and that’s exactly what it smells like. Hard to imagine, but if you could smell it you would understand. For me, this one is going in the giveaway pile.
