3 ways to update your makeup kit every month
The dream solution for every makeup addict out there
Beauty Crew Contributing Editor / February 14 2019
We admit we probably have more than enough lipsticks and eyeshadows in our makeup kits to last us a lifetime. But that doesn’t mean we’ll ever stop trialling new shades and formulas. That’s why makeup subscription boxes are such a genius idea. Every month - or however regularly you sign up for on their website - you get new makeup products delivered to your doorstep. And because you don’t know what the exact products are going to be, it’s like it’s your brithday every single month.
We’ve already shared with you some of our favourite beauty subscription boxes, but if it’s makeup specifically that you’re after, these are the ones we recommend.
Lip Monthly Box
When you take into consideration that there are 365 days in the year and some days call for two lipstick shades (one for day and another for your evening look), you really can’t have too many lipsticks. Like, ever. That’s why we love the idea of adding new shades to our collection every month. Lip Monthly is based in the US - but ships to Australia! - and gives you the choice of a monthly, three-month, six-month and annual subscription. Each box contains a surprise collection of four to five full-size lip products that may include lip glosses, lipsticks, lip balms or lip stains, plus a new makeup bag with every package.
Cost: From US$11.45/month
Medusa’s Make-Up Box
Is cruelty-free makeup your jam? Well, if you’d like to add more products into your daily makeup routine that fit the bill, sign up for the Medusa’s Make-up cruelty-free sample boxes. Available in a monthly, six-monthly and annual subscription, you’ll receive three to four full-size products with every delivery. If you’re not familiar with the Medusa Make-up brand, think colourful, glittery and fun! Our favourite thing about this beauty box? You have the option to build your own box!
Cost: From US$25.95/month (includes international shipping)
This one gets our top vote because it really hones in on our individual makeup obsessions. Are you all about the brush? Sign up for the Morph Me box - it’s the world's first monthly makeup brush club. Can’t pass up a good eyeshadow palette? Get a new one every two months with the Shadow Me box. And for those who live for lippie, the Kiss Me box has your name written all over it. You get three exclusive lip makeup samples every month. Good luck choosing from these three trial makeup kits! Personally, we’re keen on them all.
Cost: From US$19.99/month (plus international shipping)
