What happened LiveGlam? August 2017 Kissme Subscription bag| Swatches and Review

August Kissme Subscription bag

Hello Loves,

Those of you who follow my youtube journey are aware that I recently signed up to the LiveGlam Kissme subscription bag. This subscription bag basically works like the Morpheme program where you get a certain number of products every month for a fee and you can skip months you do not feel like paying for. With the Kissme bag, you get liquid lipsticks and none of the colours are repeated, the liquid lipsticks come in different finishes and shades. 

I showed you guys my July lipsticks in my long haul and GIVEAWAY video (closes on the 21st of August) so if you haven’t seen that video, please click here to watch. I also created a video showing you guys all the shades I received in that month’s bag.

That brings me to this months bag, the August bag is called the SWEETER DAYS COLLECTION and the shades basically celebrates the brightness and fun that summer brings. This collection came in a blue satin pull sting bag, really well pack with a description flyer and a card containing all the ingredients in the liquid lipsticks. The bag consists of 3 bright colours, 2 mattes and 1 satin/ I am always sceptical when it comes to bright coloured liquid lipsticks as they are always either watery, patchy or underwhelming but I was really impressed with my July bag so I though this bag would hit the ground running.

The packaging is the same as the July colours, they come in a frosted glass tube, a defoe applicator, rose gold writing and rose gold cap. As you can see in the image above, the shades swatch really well on the arm and looked promising.

My thoughts

1: Berry, this is described as a deep lavender MATTE lipstick. I must say this is the best out of the three shades although I find the colour choice to be boring and expected. I feel like every company has this shade already and I probably have more than 4 of its counterparts in my makeup collection. The shade itself is a bit patchy and does not apply well and it takes a while to dry. It is described as a lavender purple but I would say it is more like a magenta purple shade.


2: Pink Cherry, this is described as a bright fuchsia satin lipstick. This shade was very patchy and incredibly watery, it bled all over the edges of lips. It was very difficult to swatch and it settled in the lines of my lips. This shade also stained my lips and I only wore it for the duration of the swatch video. You will definitely need a lip liner to make it work, for a satin shade it felt quite uncomfortable and slippery on the lips.

3: Sherbet, this is described as a coral-orange matte lipstick. To be honest, this was the worst shade to work it, it was incredibly patchy, took ages to dry and ended up settling in my lips. 

Overall I feel like this months bag was lacking imagination, I hate it when a company’s product photographs are miles and miles different from reality, click here to view the product shots of the lipsticks. I feel really disappointed not only in the formula but also in the shade selection, they could have easily given us shades that we have never seen before rather than the typical shades we all already have in our collection. I also think they really have to rework the lighter shades as there is obviously something wrong with the formula. I am seriously keeping my fingers crossed for the autumn shades and hoping for the best. I still love the idea of the subscription bag and have not completely lost hope… YET. 

Let me know your thoughts in the comment section, what do you think about the shade selection and the formula?
