Lip Factory Beauty Subscription Box Review – August 2014
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!)
The Subscription Box: Lip Factory
The Cost: $22 a month
The Products: Full sized makeup and beauty products.
Ships to: US, Canada (extra $4), and International (extra $10)
Each box comes with a folded card detailing the items included for that month.
Pink Powder Parlor Lipstick #702 – Value $10
LASplash LipGloss in Underground – Value $9
I’m a little hesitant to try either of these items. The lipstick has absolutely no markings on it besides the #702, and it’s missing the Pink Powder Parlor logo from the case, so I’m a little skeptical. (I like to read ingredients of all the makeup products I try).
The lipgloss I’m cautious about for another reason – the glitter! This item is getting swapped as I can not pull off a glitter-lip look!
Medusa’s Makeup Shadow Primer – Value $8
LASplash Mineral Blush in Beach Party – Value $15
I’m always thrilled to find an eyeshadow primer in a box because it is the one item I never seem to get enough of in subscription boxes. This primer goes on sheer and has a bit of a dewy sheen to it. While I love the finish, unfortunately the staying power is not the best. I may end up using this instead to highlight my brow bone or any time I want to add a bit of a dewy look to my makeup.
This blush is another LASplash item with a little too much sparkle for my taste. I prefer brands with finer shimmer particles to give a more natural glow. (A good one I’ve been using lately is Lily Lolo).
Cult Nails Nail Lacquer – Value $12 (On sale for $4.80)
Red Cherry False Lashes – Value $2.50
At first I thought this nail polish was a bit of a weird shade, but it’s actually a topcoat that gives an emerald shimmer over your base color. It’s 5-free so I think I’ll give it a try!
Verdict: I paid $22 for this box and received about $56 retail value worth of items. The value is good, but a lot of these items are misses for me, so this box was a bit of a bust. What did you think of Lip Factory this month?
