I signed up for lip monthly late in November, not realizing that I would still get the November lip monthly. I thought It would start in December, but I received a lovely surprise in my mail box the week of Thanksgiving. I received the following items:
- Ofra Cosmetics Lip Liner in Maya
- Hikari Cosmetics Lip Crayon in Nutmeg
- Luna by Luna Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Titania
- Freeze 247 Cosmetics Anti-Aging Eye Serum
Now you all know I was super excited for the anti-aging serum eye serum. Being a mother of a 4 year girl and 6 month old boy I am always trying to find ways to maintain my youthful look and not look like I am bogged down by the stress of life. For a week I put the eye serumon right before going to bed and now after about 14 days I see a significant difference and reduction in the under eye puffiness I normally had. Major plus!! Here is the sad part *tear* for the .05 oz it costs about $115 *cries profusely*. I guess I will have to hold on to my little trial size because I won’t be getting another one any time soon.
On Thanksgiving day, I was heading to my grandparents’ house and after cooking all day I needed to slay my face to match my fabulous outfit. I said to myself, “Carly, you can’t wear the same old boring lip look you always do.” That is when I remembered I had three new lippies to try from my lip monthly. I paired the lip crayon from Hikari and the Lip gloss from Luna by Luna to make a magical lip combination. My lips were popping to say the least. *pats back* The nutmeg lip crayon was very subtle going on my lips and added a nice medium brown tint to my lips. Not chalky and glides on perfectly. There was no need to put gloss on my lips prior to application. After lining my lips with the Hikari lip crayon I then added the Titania lip gloss to finish this look. This soft golden glitter gloss allows the nutmeg of the crayon to illuminate on my lips for the perfect neutral lip. Both these lip colors can be found online from $13-$22.
The last thing to try was my Maya Lip Liner from Ofra Cosmetics. Its a dark deep red color. I lined my lips with this color and paired it with my super stay 24 hour Maybelline Keep Up the Flame lip gloss. Red lip color never looked so great on me! I was definitely the hottie with the red lips that day *wink wink*
