Kiss My Sass Lip Addicts Anonymous – August Box Review and Swatches

So, I am pretty late to the game here. Sorry all! August was a really rough month for me both personally and professionally (just work being extra crazy). I won’t go into the personal things, but suffice it to say, if you have anyone close to you that you even sort of love, give them an extra hug.

Anyway, back to makeup. That’s my happy place.

The LAA subscription box ships early in the month. I can’t remember when it came this month, but it was early on in the month.

This month’s theme was the beach! Summer is almost over, so I was definitely happy about this one. I was just at the beach about a month ago, so it’s in very recent memory for me, and I for sure already miss it.

In this box I got:
Beachbound lip tint – I love KMS’s lip tints. I find them to be moisturizing and really comfortable to wear. This lip tint is no different. Most of the other lip tints I have from KMS are pretty pigmented, almost like a creamy lipstick, but this one is much less pigmented (still creamy though). It’s a very very sheer nude color, which is nice for me, because believe it or not, I don’t have a ton of nude lipstick options.IMG_7173 IMG_7174
Beach Bum Wiggle Wash – The scent of this is pretty nice, although I’m going to be honest… I don’t love the stuff. The wigglyness of it just gets to me. I suppose if I had a kid, then this would be perfect. But instead, I was a grownup trying to bathe with a jell-o jiggler, and ended up dropping it a million times. The scent was nice though – smelled like a summery cocktail to me.IMG_7179 IMG_7180MVI_7183
Ride the Waves eyeshadow – This was a really fun turquoise eyeshadow with a golden shift to it. The official description on the card said orange pops, but it looked more golden to me. Still, lovely color.IMG_7187 IMG_7189 IMG_7193 IMG_7196
Summer Glow highlighter – This is a lovely creamy highlighter. It was pretty impossible to capture, but I’ve been wearing this highlighter a ton – it’s beautiful! IMG_7190IMG_7194 IMG_7197
Sunset Beach eyeshadow from Innocent + Twisted Alchemy – This was a full size eyeshadow from I+TA, which I love. I’ve gotten quite a few things from I+TA before and always been very happy. This was no different. This is a beautiful pink eyeshadow with purple sparkles in it. Very fun!IMG_7175 IMG_7176 IMG_7184 IMG_7186 IMG_7192 IMG_7195
Some candy!

Overall, I was really happy with this box. I think the thing I will get the least amount of use is the blue eyeshadow, since I don’t wear blues often. Oh and the wiggle wash. Otherwise, love it!

KMS LAA subscriptions are available here. It’s $10/month, and it’s all about lip products! So far, I’ve been pretty happy with these.

    Nice selection of stuff – yes, I agree about Wiggle Wash, bought something similar once and although it smells good and is a novelty, can be such a pain to use, especially when it all breaks up and disintegrates at the end!

      Exactly! I think if I had kids, it’d be perfect! But for me… not so much.

What do you think?
