It’s all about the lips

Standard

It’s sad I don’t have any but it doesn’t stop me from loving lipstick though!

I got my Lip Factory box today! Yippee! It was late for me this month but well worth the wait. I still say Lip Factory has the best subscription box out there. It’s consistently good. Every box I’ve gotten has exceeded the previous ones in quality and usefulness. I really, really love this box. They do an all lip products box once every 3 or 4 months otherwise it’s usually a mix of all types of makeup.

It’s $22 a month but each box well exceeds the cost. I figure the total worth of this box is $79.50 So yeah, if you’re going to subscribe to just one cosmetic box, this is the one you want. If you do, please use my referral number! 27546

This box contained all full-size products plus a lip brush and a sample of Dermalogica renewal lip complex.

Nabi Lip Pencil in L31 Mauve ($8.95 on Amazon)
Lip Factory brand Lip Brush
Korres Liquid Lipstick in #28 Raspberry ($22)
I love all of these! I can’t wait to try them.

Designer Skin Lip Shimmer in Afterglow ($9.99 on Amazon)
LaSplash Diamond Lip Gloss in #14092 Forbidden ($6.99)
NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in #709 Deep Red ($4.50)

I Am thrilled with the first two. The Afterglow is an amazing colour. Even though it looks very light, it’s highly pigmented and semi-opaque. I love it. The LaSplash is a really nice colour for me. The NYX, however, is red…a brick red for sure…but it’s red. I cannot wear red lipstick. I’m sad about this because I’ve seen that other ladies have gotten colours that would be way more appropriate for my skin tone and really wish I had gotten one of those. Sadly, I really love the NYX Jumbo pencils so it sucks this one is useless to me. Fortunately, they’re cheap so I can always buy it myself without the expensive makeup guilt I often feel when I spend tons of money on one makeup product.

Be A Bombshell Lip Gloss in Kiss Off ($14)
Ofra Lipstick in Berry Sexy ($13)
Dermalogica Renewal Lip Complex sample

I love the BaB glosses so this was a happy surprise for me. The colour is awesome and I’m stoked for this. The Ofra looks very dark but it’s actually just sheer enough that I can blend it out and make it work for me. It’s a grape colour and I really like it. I tried it with some of the Afterglow on top and the colour was really nice. I’ve never tried the Dermalogica but I’ve heard good things about it so I’ll definitely be trying this.

The Ofra smells amazing but it has no detectable flavour. The Korres has a mild, minty aroma. None of the others have an aroma that I can detect. The Korres and LaSplash have a minty taste but not a burn. They’re not lip plumpers. The others have no detectable taste. The Nabi pencil isn’t as smooth as I would like but the colour is great for me.

All in all, I absolutely love this box and Lip Factory has gained a loyal customer in me. I hope they keep up with the excellent boxes. Between the great products and the fantastic customer service, this is one subscription box I feel really good about and now I can’t wait for April’s box!
