I have always had a love hate relationship with beauty subscription boxes. They seem to suck me in and spit me out. It’s great to have a surprise every month but I can’t stand receiving tiny sized samples, cheap products and paying for expensive shipping costs.

For me it’s all about trying new brands and products I wouldn’t normally purchase. In Australia there are not that many beauty subscriptions that tick all the boxes.  Trust me I’ve tried them all. 

I was recently contacted by Lip Monthly and was pleased to be sent their May edition to trial and share with you guys. I have always admired American subscription services and always wondered what they would be like. Here’s the low down on what Lip Monthlys all about.


COST – $12.95 US per month (first month only $5.82 US with coupon code LOLA55)

PRODUCTS – 4 to 5 FULLSIZE per month (includes 1 non lip product)

SHIPPING – FREE! worldwide (only takes 4-8 days to Australia!)

SUBSCRIPTIONS – 4 months or annual (cancel any time)

VALUE- $35-$55 each month  (May’s bag was $68.95!)


Manna Kadar Lip Locked Priming Gloss Stain in shade Manna Babe (Fuchsia Pink) $24
A lipgloss, primer and stain all in one. With long lasting pigments, nourishing berry extract and added Vitamin A and E. The formula is also paraben free and allergy tested.


So Susan Jello Shot Rosy Cheek & Lip Gel $24.95

A gel stain formula infused with heat-shift technology which when in contact with the skin it gives a healthy rosy flush. The colour will vary depending on your body temperature. It’s 99% natural, vegan and contains no nasties.


Dirty Little Secret Lipstick in shade Vengeance $10

A full coverage lipstick and lipbalm in one. Designed to keep your lips moisturised and smooth all day. It has a creamy satin finish and smells as sweet as candy.

Jor’el Parker Fango Mud Therapy Face Mask $10

A moisturising and hydrating mask for the face or body. It protects your skin from damage, gently exfoliates, minimises pores, reduces fine lines and more. Infused with green tea antioxidants,  sweet almond and avocado oils.

As well as the cute patterned makeup bag each month comes with a small card detailing all the contents and prices.

Overall I was super impressed with lipmonthly. The shipping was super fast and came in a metalic gold padded bag! I love how all the products were fullsize and can’t wait to try them all out. I’m so glad I discovered this beauty subscription and can’t wait to see what’s to come next month!

If you are interested in signing up for Lip Monthly please visit their website lipmonthly.com and use my code ‘LOLA55’ for 55% off your first bag.
