Year of Subscription Boxes: January Lip Factory

Continuing on to my year of subscription beauty boxes, the second one I have subscribed to this year was Lip Factory. They were actually the first I had subscribed to, however given that it is an international subscription, I knew that shipping would take longer.

So for those of you who are reading this and aren't familiar with Lip Factory subscription boxes then the following information will hopefully give you some insight on the service they provide and what they offer.

Lip Factory offers subscription beauty boxes or 'beauty kits' (is what they like to call it) for $22 per month (for US subscribers), $26 if you reside in Canada and $32 for International subscribers. Given the mid price range for subscription boxes, you do get more value than what you are paying for. Your beauty kit is packed with 5-7 full size makeup products (whether they be for face or eyes or both), one will most definitely be a lip product as the focus is on the lips (hence the name). You do get the odd beauty sample thrown in the box now then as well as a bonus product. The products featured in these monthly boxes are carefully chosen by Lip Factory's expert team of MakeUp Artists and Beauty Specialists. Once subscribed it is ideal to fill up your personal beauty profile (in which this gives the LF team an idea on your skin type, favorite makeup trends etc), in order to customize and fill your beauty kits based on your profile.

Lip Factory packs well known brands in their boxes, however they do also throw in new ones, in which I favor. For me the purpose of beauty subscription boxes is to discover and try brands and products I have neither heard of or would not think to purchase. You can try various products (that are on trend) at the comfort of your home without having to go to a department store as these boxes are delivered to your door.

Again with research...

As I have mentioned on my previous post (here) before subscribing to these beauty boxes I had done some extensive research and tried to source out which boxes were going to offer me not just a better value, but a better range/variety of products to try and that suited to my taste in all things 'Beauty'. I had done the usual; googling images of their previous monthly boxes to see their featured brands and read blogs that posted reviews on their boxes for a good 5-6 months. By the new year (this year), I was convinced Lip Factory was definitely the box I could see myself loyally subscribing to and would be loving.

My first Lip Factory Box

So as I had mentioned earlier, I was expecting my box to arrive later than most as I am an international subscriber. Lip Factory is based in Florida (USA), while I am here in Australia. I had received my much awaited (and anticipated) January Lip Factory box only yesterday and I was already getting snap happy with my camera and product testing all the treats that were packed inside.

As you have probably guessed by now, I am a visual person. I love looking at pictures and I love taking pictures. Brace yourself for an array of photos of the products and swatches.

And here's what I got... 

  • 29 Cosmetics Preserves Skin Care Collection: Grape Seed Protection (Sample) $4
  • TEEEZE Trendy Cosmetics My Mysterious Crystal Eyeliner in Black Onyx $16.04
  • TEEEZE Trendy Cosmetics Island Palette Eyeshadow in Sweet Sins $16
  • Be A Bombshell Cosmetics The One Stick in Flustered $16
  • Bodyography Electric Lip Slide in Berry'd Alive $19

Some looks I put together using the products that were in the box:

Given that it's February today I'm already excited and looking forward to this months box! According to Lip Factory's Facebook page there will be more Teeeze cosmetics featured in the Feb box. I am loving all the products and colors. The Bodyography's Electric Lip Slide in Berry'd Alive being my favorite. The Teeeze eyeshadow and Eyeliner I am also loving too. HOW GORGEOUS IS THE PACKAGING????

The eyeliner has an all day staying power and the eyeshadow is a beautiful brown/green shade that suits any eye color. I am very pleased with the color selection.
