September Lip Factory Look

*Products/subscription box reviewed were self-purchased.*

Hello there! This is a follow-up post to the Lip Factory post of the other day.

I’ve used the following products to create today’s makeup look:

Skin79 SuperBB VIP Gold Collection
Skin79 Diamond BB UV Perfect BB Pact
Ulta Cheek Color in Sweet Cheeks
Benefit Watts Up Highlighter
Physicians Formula Sexy Glow Bronzer
-Sephora Arch It Brow Kit (no longer available)
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
JCat Eye Pencil in Charcoal
Studio277 eyeshadow in Kryptonite (received in previous LF box)
-Ulta eyeshadow in Grey Smoke (no longer available)
Manic Panic Creature of the Night mascara (received in previous LF box)

In the two following pictures, I have ModelCo lip gloss in StripTease on my lips:

I don’t really like the JCat eye pencil as an eye liner, but I think it will be a good “sticky” base underneath loose eyeshadow.

ModelCo lip gloss is a really really lovely nude lip gloss, and I’ve already used it several times since receiving the gloss.

The following picture, I’ve used Be a Bombshell Cosmetics lip gloss in Nude Beach on top of ModelCo Striptease:

The Bombshell lip gloss does add a bit of shimmer to the lips, without being overpowering.

I also did a comparison of the La Fresh makeup remover wipes to Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover:

You can’t really tell a difference in the pictures, but it did seem like the La Fresh remover wipes removed the eye makeup a bit easier – I didn’t feel like I had to scrub my eye as hard. It also seemed to remove the mascara way better. The only thing is that I wish the wipes were smaller! In the above picture, I only used half the wipe. I just feel like it’s wasteful. (I might just cut the wipes in half.)

May Lip Factory box

Service reviewed was purchased by me.

Lip Factory Inc. is a monthly subscription program, based in the U.S. but ships internationally. The main focus is lips but they also do other makeup items. It is $22/month, shipped, for U.S. subscribers.

This month’s Lip Factory box was the theme “Under the Veil”:

Here’s what the info card said for this month:

Let’s go through all the products! I’m going to start with the lip products first. Since both lip products were on the sheer side, I wanted to show you what my bare lips look like before I get to what the products looked like on my lips:

This is Studio277 Cosmetics Lip Gloss in “Almost Nude” ($9.50):

It’s a doe-foot applicator:

Here it is swiped across my lips:

Next up is NYX Round Gloss in “Sparkle” ($2.50-$3):

Maygloss3

It is also a doe-foot applicator:

Here it is swiped over the “Almost Nude”. There is a shimmery sparkle to it that doesn’t pick up on camera. Plus, when it wears off, it leaves little sparkly pieces on your lips. Very nice to leave in your purse all the time.

Here are the two compared on my hand. Remember that I’m a pale redhead, so even nude glosses show up dark on my skin:

Next up is the NYX Color Lip Balm in Arigato ($3):

I wanted the picture a little out of focus to show the shimmer to it, it’s not just a flat color lip balm:

Next up is the Studio 277 Cosmetics Eyelight Pigment in Kryptonite (perhaps $12.50, couldn’t find an accurate price):

I love this so much, just the right touch of shimmer without being too “out there”. I used this with Glamour Doll Eyes in Katie’s Storm:

Next up is the Bombshell Cosmetics Blush in Glowing Goddess ($16):

As a redhead, I’m lucky that a lot of blushes look nice on me, but I do like how this one looks in particular. It gives a nice healthy flush to my cheeks.

The only things I didn’t use were the sample:
Maysample

And the blender brush, which I actually don’t have a picture of.

All told, the total value for this month’s box is approximately $45.00, if the prices I found were accurate. I put a value of $1 on the sample and $1 value on the blender, but those aren’t probably correct. Still though, $45 worth of product for $22 is extremely great. I’ve also always received great service from them, and they are super responsive on their facebook and emails. If you are interested in signing up with Lip Factory Inc., I’d appreciate if you used my referral number when you do so. It is 38343.

Do you receive Lip Factory? What’s been your experience of them?
