|This is the October product card.
|I have stumbled upon another beauty box subscription service. This one is called Lip Factory Inc and I should let you know before I begin this review that I actually purchased this subscription service and I’m not being compensated in anyway for this review. I just thought I would share what I got from them.
Before I begin let me tell you a little bit about Lip Factory Inc.
- Based out of the US but they do ship to Canada and International.
- Its $22 a month (recurring charges) shipping is included in that for US and Canada. There is an additional fee outside that area.
- You can expect to receive 10 sample sizes from some of your favorite make up brands.
- You could receive a full face make up kit and you will always get lip products such as lip glosses, lip sticks, lip liners, etc because its all about the lips.
- The website is easy to navigate and what I love so far is that there is always a video or photos online called tutorials so you know how to use your month’s box.
So lets get on with the October box shall we.
I should let you know that coming into Canada it could take a little longer due to customs.
As you can see the packaging is very pretty and classic in my opinion. It comes in a plain brown box but inside you are greeted with this:
I love the white and black print paper. Plus the design is really nice. There is nothing bright here.
What I really liked right away was seeing that little hand written note thanking me for my subscription. I think this says alot about a company.
When there was a delay in shipping they instantly contacted me right away via an email to apologize and I thought that was really nice on their part because so many of the beauty boxes don’t do that so this gives you a great first impression on the company.
They offered me a tshirt and I replied back with my size and it was included in the box.
Thanks Lip Factory for sending this out to me.
When I lifted up this package I could feel some weight to it and was instantly curious to open it and see what was there.
The first things I pulled out was this months product card which changes monthly.
The next item was this Make Up For Ever HD Primer foil sample.
Another foil sample is this Murad Hydrate Essential C Day Moisture and I believe this is a bonus item.
Then there is the Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist samples.
As you can see there is 4 various shades of lipstick in those little pods. So far the first and the last one are my favorites.
All new subscribers get this Kabuki brush (most commonly used to apply dry, powder-based makeup such as foundation or blush). Its a nice soft brush and I like that its retractable and comes like this. Great for traveling.
I got 2 Ultimo Mineral eye shadows in the same shade Expresso. Although I think I was suppose to get a different color. Its a nice brown shade that I am excited to try.
A brand I know and really like is the Mark line (Avon) and they included this little sample of Glow Baby Glow Luxe lip gloss. It smelled like candy which I loved but I found myself always licking my lips when I put this on.
Since subscribing to a few (whistles innocently) beauty boxes I have discovered a love for the Benefit cosmetics so I was thrilled when they included this ChaCha Tint. I believe this was a bonus item as well since its not marked on my card or online.
Something that is new to me is Korres products. I got a sample of their lip gloss in Cherry Lip Gloss high shine. This smelled like cherries.
Instut’ Dermed Clarifying Cleanser. I haven’t tried this one yet and hoping to get to this very soon.
No make up box would be complete without a mascara and this is Clinique’s High Impact Mascara. Its in black and I believe this was another bonus item. I haven’t opened this yet since I have quite a few mascara’s going.
As you might know I am always unsure about Eye Pencils and never quite sure what to do with them or how to use them so I am hoping that after watching some videos I will know what to do. The shade I got is Plum 1645 and its by H2O Plus.
I have to say this scares the beejesus out of me. Its a NYX Extreme Blue Liquid Liner. Not sure if I would use this but perhaps if an occassion occurred I might be willing to use it.
So this is what I got and I have to say I am really impressed. I have seen one other blog post about this and they got different items. I am excited to try these all out.
Before I forget they also include these little brushes with each beauty kit. I think this would be perfect for traveling. I think the idea behind this is in case you don’t have the brushes you have something to work with which I think is a neat idea and in the video’s the artist will use the same brushes.
The above picture is all the swatches I did. They are in order from top to bottom: Korres Cherry Lip gloss, ChaCha Tint, Glow Baby Glow Luxe, Expresso eye shadow, Plum liner and the Extreme Blue liquid liner.
What do you think of this beauty subscription service? Is this something that interests you?
