September Lip Factory Review

Subscription Box was self-purchased.

Good morning everyone! I missed doing a review for the past few Lip Factory Inc. boxes, so I’m trying to get back into the swing of reviewing them. Warning: lots of pictures ahead!

Lip Factory Inc. is a monthly beauty (with a heavier emphasis on lips, obvy) subscription box. It is $22/month for U.S. subscribers (no additional charge for shipping), $26/month for Canada subscribers (includes $4 shipping charge), and $32/month for all other international subscribers (includes $10 shipping charge). As of September 2013, they are donating a percentage of each box sold to the Compassionate Hands and Hearts Breast Cancer Outreach.

September’s box was “Define Your Style of Beauty”. Here is the information card that was included in my box:

Yay for bonus things! Let’s start with ModelCo’s SHINE Ultra Lip Gloss, listed on ModelCo’s site for $16. I received the color “Strip Tease”. This has a nifty little mirror on the side of the gloss. It has a pleasant, sweet odor to it; and though it seems sticky when you pull the doe-foot applicator out, it isn’t sticky on the lips. It is a lovely nude-pink color.

Next up is Bombshell Cosmetics Lip Gloss, listed on Bombshell’s site for $14. I received the color “Nude Beach.” This has no odor. This is a slightly shimmery nude-tan color.

Here are both lip glosses side by side. ModelCo Striptease is the top, and Bombshell Nude Beach is the bottom lip gloss.

Next up is Absolute Oil Blotting Tissues, listed on their site for $2.99. This is a package of 50 tissues; they are slightly scented, it says on the package “green tea scent.” I rarely have a problem with oiliness on my face, so I will probably be giving this to a friend.

Next is JCat Beauty The Big Eye Pencil, listed their site for $3.49. I received the color “charcoal.” Lip Factory also included a jumbo eye pencil sharpener, in case the subscriber didn’t have one. (Very cool!)

This seems a bit “oily” for lack of a better word, when it goes on, but I haven’t yet had a chance to use it for my eyes. When I do so, I’ll update this post.

Next we have LA Fresh Waterproof Makeup Remover Wipes. I received 2 sample packets, each valued at $1. I also received a package of 24 wipes, valued at $9.99. These are specifically for your eyes and lips; it also has a slight lavender scent. When I next wear makeup (haha), I’ll compare this to my Sephora Eye Makeup Remover that I wear.

Lastly, we have Bombshell Cosmetics Eyeliner, listed on their site for $14. I received the color “amethyst.” This has a felt/marker type tip. What I received was actually dried out a bit (I had to press pretty hard to get a line), and Lip Factory noticed my comment on my instagram and sent me out a new one without me even having to email them. Just another example of their awesome customer service.

Isn’t this an amazing box? My box had a total value of $62.47! I absolutely love the companies that over the months Lip Factory Inc has introduced me to, and I’m super excited that Bombshell Cosmetics was in this month’s box. Plus: their customer service is beyond amazing – it’s like heavenly! The fact that they anticipate their customer’s needs is something that every company should take a cue from.

  2. Got mine today – we have slightly different shades of the glosses and I don’t have the full-size wipes; I have a newbie eyeshadow instead! Loving the box and can’t wait for October!
