I signed up for the August Box when I saw a coupon for the first box for $6.99. There was no way I could turn down a box for $7! I'm not usually huge for just boxes with lip items - only because I am very basic with my lip products!

Here is a look at the August 2014 Lip Monthly Beauty Box:

Here is a look at the products I received:

Jessie Girl Cosmetics Liquid Glass Lip Gloss in "Gypsy" ~ full size $4.99. Yay - a lip gloss in a beauty box that is a color that works for me! It is smooth and non-sticky and I quite like it! Here is what it looks like on:

Nice pink color without being too bright!!

City Color Cosmetics Lip Balm in "Dusty Rose" ~ full size $2.99. Ultra smooth with a splash of color. I think I will like this color - I am going to keep it closed for a while until i get through the 10 lip balms I have open right now!

City Color Cosmetics - Magic Balm ~ full size $3.99. Magic Balm is described as "dry, chapped lips will vanish, with the City Color Magic Lip Balm. This cute little lip balm is formulated to hydrate lips and add just a light pink tint." Again, I'm keeping this closed until I get through a few more open balms!

City Color Be Matte Lipstick in "Phoebe" ~ full size $3.99. Described as every girl's must have secret. It is highly pigmented and long lasting! So, I actually never wear lipstick and I just tried this on to confirm that I probably wasn't going to like it:

Needless to say, I was actually quite surprised that I liked this lipstick. It complimented my skin tone well and the matte color is very trendy right now! I am happy with this product - I will wear this when I go out!

Pixi by Petra Lid Last Shadow Pen in "Gentle Gold" ~ full size $18. Cream to powder, non-creasing shadow pen. I have included a swatch of this color - i did just receive a pen like this (but a little darker) this is waterproof as well! 

So this beauty bag is $15 a month, and came with all 5 full size ingredients with a value of $33.96. I am actually really impressed with the value of this bag and within lip products they included a good variety! I think the only thing I would critique is that 3 of the products were the same brand, but it is good to find an inexpensive lip brand you like!
