June LippieBox 2018: Unbox & Review

Hello everyone!

I’m always excited to receive this monthly supscription box specifically aimed at lip products. It’s so exciting to see what is in the box this month and then trying everything out. What I like about this box is that you get the opportunity to try products put which you either wouldn’t have bought of couldn’t find in store.

If you’re new here LippieBox is a monthly subscription box with a selection of five lip products. There can be anything from lip crayons, lip balms, lip scrubs, lip sticks, lip glosses etc. There has also been months where the subscribers received a lip stick shaped pen, pout pop socket or a lip shaped soap!

Let’s look back at the June LippieBox!

The five products featured were:

> Note Cosmetics Mattemoist Lip Gloss in “Matnude” (Normally priced at $10)

I was pleasantly surprised with this lip product. Normally I go for more bold red or fuchsia lip colours, so this was a first for me. (That is what I like about this box.) The colour is beautiful and very subtle. A pinkish brown and beige mixture I would say. Being such a nude colour it is not that noticeable from far away as it blends with my skin colour. I love to wear this one since ut can go with literally any outfit. It’s a nice colour to wear to the office too! Read my review on this one for more information!

> Elemental Promise in Hibiscus Brairberry Lip Balm ($7)

This all natural lip balm has a subtle berry scent mixed with the soft scent of a hibiscus flower. It is not that strong so if you are not into strong scents I recommend you try this one out! I was so excited to try this one put specifically since the scent is so unique. It is very moisturising with a thinish light weight formula. I just love the glass tub too. Even though the lip balm is a nice peachy colour there is no colour payoff. This lip balm can be used with the Note Cosmetics lip gloss to lessen the dry feeling that matte lip glosses often has.

> Sormé Cosmetics’ Tasty Tubes in Punch 05 ($15)

This lip gloss has that classic glittery glossy formula with a slight pink sheen. I love the fruit punch scent a lot. It is so fruity I just want to do that infamous “there’s-lip-balm-on-my-pout-and-it-smells-delicious” pout all the time. The scent stays on your lips for a good while too. This reminds me of a Lip Smacker scented lip gloss. I like to wear this lip gloss to the mall or on an outing with friends. It’s not not extemely pigmented and is more about the scent and shine than a dark lip colour. And that is what I like about this lip gloss.

> Be a Bombshell’s Lip Crayon in “What the Fuchsia” ($7)

I expected this lip crayon to be extremely pigmented and that one will has a very bright fuchsia pout if you wear this, but actually (in a good way) the colour is not too over poweringly bright. (I mean let us be honest here: not all people will wear overwhelmingly bright lip colours.) The lip crayon has a nice watermelon / rouge colour when applied to the lips which seems to provide a lovely pinkness to my lips. So if you were afraid that this one would be too bright and “only for the younger ladies” do not worry! I think all ages can rock this colour! This reminds me of a Baby Lips.

> My Magical Star in Double Bubble Gum Lip balm ($3)

I was so happy when I saw that My Magical Star featured again. Their products are always the best with great scents and formulas. (My Magical Star has featured quite a few times in LippieBox and I can tell why! 😋) I just love anything bubble gum scented so I was so glad to add this to my collection. My Magical Star you did it again! This lip balm is very moisturising and can also be used with the Matte Lip gloss to provide moisturisation.

Note Cosmetics Mattemoist Lip Gloss in “Matnude”

Hello everyone! Here is a review on a beautiful nude lip gloss that featured in the June LippieBox. I never went for nude lip products before, often opting for a bold pout if I want some colour in my life. The problem is that if you can not wear Fuchsia and Red lip sticks to all occasions nor does it go with all outfits. Thanks to LippieBox I got the opportunity to try out this beauty from Note Cosmetics.

Personally I am not the biggest fan of matte lip glosses as they can be drying without a lip balm. I do not like the lines on my lips to look like dried up mud or something! Thankfully I have enough lip balms to help me with that! (And LippieBox included two lip balms in this month’s box as well.) I used Elemental Promise’s lip balm in Hibiscus Brairberry to help me in this instance. I just dab a bit of lip balm beneath and even a little bit on top of the lip gloss and then I’m good to go.

The lip gloss has a very pleasant vanilla scent. I must say I love it when a lip gloss or lip stick smells good!

Only one coat does the trick and it is very pigmented. It tries up pretty fast as well. The nude colour works pretty well with my skintone and is not as “in-your-face” as some bold colours might be. I feel that this colour enhances my natural lips’ colour. It is not necessary that noticeble from far away, but the slight difference in colour makes a great final touch to my outfit. The colour of the gloss is a peachy pink, light brown and beige mixture where the pink tone is the most prominent. I think this will go pretty well with all skincolours.

As with all semi-matte lip glosses this one needs to be reaplied if you ate or drank something. The colour is doesn’t wipe off any anything unintentionally so you are safe to give your loved one a kiss.

What I like about the colour is that you can wear this in almost any situation. You can also wear it to the office and look very professional.

Are you searching for a good nude lip gloss or are you used to wearing bold colours? Why don’t you give this one a chance!
