LaRitzy Beauty Subscription Box Review – August 2016
LaRitzy is a cruelty-free beauty subscription box. They used to send a mix of full-size and deluxe sized samples. Now, they have rebranded and are sending 3 full-size items each month from their own makeup line. (All their makeup is paraben and cruelty free. They will use beeswax, though.)
UPDATE: Beginning with the November box, LaRitzy will now be sending only one makeup product, and the subscription price has been reduced to ~$11/month ($6.95/month + $3.95 shipping). (Thanks, Luna, for this info!)
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

This box included a promo card for LaRitzy, and an invoice for the items:
LaRitzy Lip Pencil in Malted Mauve – Value $18
This lip liner is pretty much the perfect shade for my skin tone. It’s a very wearable color for me, and it works for everyday looks.
The pigment is great, but one thing to mention about both this lip liner and the lipstick – they do not go on smoothly.
LaRitzy Matte Lipstick in Karma – Value $20
Again, the color is perfection for me! It has good staying power, too. Like a lot of matte lip products, it is a little drying, though.
Here are both shades swatched:
The good news about the issues I had with the drying lipstick, is that the third item is a Super Balm!
LaRitzy Super Balm – Value $18
For me, this balm was exactly what I needed after applying the lipstick. It’s a moisturizing balm, but the finish isn’t too shiny, so it doesn’t destroy the matte look.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $56. I would love to see better packaging from this subscription to make it feel a little more special, but the quality of the makeup is there. Even though I had some issues with the drying nature of the lipstick, this lip kit is amazing for me – I’m using it daily.
If you’re looking for a makeup subscription that you know will always be paraben and cruelty-free, I think this is a good one!
