Lip Factory Makeup Subscription Box Review – January 2014

Lip Factory Makeup Subscription Box Review - January 2014 Review

Lip Factory is a monthly full-size makeup subscription box. They tend to send a variety of drugstore and mid-tier makeup, and the value seems to always be at least double the cost of the box. (Extra good news – they ship worldwide!)

Be a Bombshell Cosmetics The One Stick in Girl Crush – FULL SIZE! Value $16

I am officially over getting Be a Bombshell cosmetics products in subscription boxes! (I know I subscribe to a lot of boxes, so I may be in the minority on this).

Bodyography Electric Lip Slide – FULL SIZE! Value $19

I was happy to see this lip gloss/stain/stick is paraben free!

Lip Factory Makeup Subscription Box Review - January 2014 Eyeshadow

Teeez Trendy Cosmetics Island Palette Eyeshadow – FULL SIZE! Value $16

This brand is new to me and I love the packaging! This blue is pretty intense for me though – it may go in the gift/swap pile.

Teeze Trendy Cosmetics Mysterious Crystal Eyeliner – FULL SIZE! Value $16

Lip Factory Makeup Subscription Box Review - January 2014 Sample

29 Cosmetics Preserves Skin Care Collection Grape Seed Age Protecting Sample Pack – Value $4

Verdict: I paid $22 for this box and received about $70 worth of makeup products. I’m not that thrilled with the small skincare samples, but I am always pleased with how much full size makeup they include with every box.

What did you think of the January Lip Factory box?

    1. I’m actually glad you said: “I am officially over getting Be a Bombshell cosmetics products in subscription boxes!” Be a Bombshell products don’t impress me either.

      • Heads-up if you get the Wantable Makeup Box then – this is the update for February’s Wantable box:

        https://www.wantable.com/boxes/makeup

        “Wantable favorite, Be a Bombshell Cosmetics, is back with The One Stick. This smooth, all-in-one miracle can be used on cheeks, eyes, and lips to add a highlight or pop of color wherever your little heart desires.”

        • Ipsy costs $10 USD includes a one stick and they had it in December 2013. Lip Factory costs $22 USD and has a one stick and has it January 2014. Wantable costs $36 and includes the one stick and they have it February 2014. Is it just me or is this kind of tragic for Wantable?

          • Not really. I sub to wantable and ipsy and have never received the one stick from either. Wantable has it over all the rest because it’s totally customized. Ipsy is good for $10 but I almost always get small samples of so-so products, but I hang on just in case someday I get wowed. With Wantables (I sub to all 3 of their monthlies), I know I’m getting all full size products based on my specific preferences. I’ll take that over a crapshoot any day. I think brands make the rounds with all the subs, so the timing is coincidental and to me, irrelevant. And like I said, not everyone gets a featured product from Wantable since it depends completely on your individual profile. The same kind of applies with ipsy, since they have many glam bag variations. So the odds of many people getting the one stick three times is pretty low.

            • According to Ipsy’s website everyone who subscribed to Ipsy in December 2013 received a One Stick in Girl Crush or Flustered or Sunset – I wonder why you didn’t get one?

    2. Do they only accept PayPal? I tried to subscribe today with a debit card and it wouldn’t take that form of payment.

      • Yep they accept PayPal.

        • And credit cards. Just not debit directly. Have to use that thru PayPal.

    3. That really is fabulous packaging on the shadow and liner!!

    4. Not a fan of this. Burned out on Bombshell too!

    5. Ugg I would be disappointed in this box too! Those skincare samples are a joke!!! I need way more cleanser than that!
