International Beauty Box: Lip Factory April 2013

I was very excited to sign up to an international beauty box this month.  I heard about it from Jac over at the matillyrose blog when she blogged about her March box and needless to say I signed up as soon as I could.  You can check out her March box here.

This Lip Factory beauty box comes from the US and costs $22 USD plus $10USD for shipping.  All up this box cost me $31.80AUD with the exchange rate etc.

Lip Factory Beauty Box April 2013


I received 6 fullsize makeup products and 1 skincare sample?!  On that note I know you're all dying to see what I got so let's get on with it.



1.  Sweet Pea & Fay Cosmetics J'Adore Les Levres in "Mermaid Kiss" - This is a bright pink liquid lipstick that appears similar to OCC Lip Tar or Sleek Pout Paint.

2.  Two Cosmetics Eyeshadow Duo in "Foreplay". A duo of two different toned purple shadows (one shimmer one matte) that I will get a lot of use out of.  The colours are beautiful and appear to be quite pigmented.  The slogan on the side says "makeup with a cause - you buy one we give one to charity" which I think is pretty cool.

3.  LASplash Cosmetics Nail Polish in "Atlantis" - I'm not much of a nail polish fan but the colour of this is incredible and I can't wait to wear it on my toes.  It's an iridescent purple colour with the tiniest particles of glitter in it.  Love it!



4.  29 Cosmetics Mascara - D'vine Grape Seed Age Protecting Conditioning Mascara in "Devine Brown" - Appears to have a nice thick wand which I prefer over thinner ones.  Also it's Made in Italy.. woooo fancy (ha)

5.  OFRA Cosmetics Lipgloss in "Bordeaux" - A rich plum coloured gloss which smells so delicious and sweet like lollies... mmmm.

6.  LISI Line & Define Eyeliner Pencil in Storm Cloud (Black) - A mechanical black eyeliner which on swatching seems soft and very pigmented.


7.  MD Formulations - small 3ml sachet sample of a facial cleanser.



My sister and I signed up at the same time and my sister got a personalised email back asking if we were sisters which I thought was a nice touch.  Overall I found their customer service so far to be great.  You can get more info or sign up here www.lipfactoryinc.com

I honestly can't stress enough how amazed I am at the value of this box - a fullsize mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow duo, nailpolish and 2 lip products is amazing and I will get use out of every single one of them.  Every single one of these brands (except MD Formulations) I had never heard of before so I'm thrilled to be trying new brands that we just don't have here in Australia.  Since makeup is really what I love, this box has a higher value to me than the Australian boxes which usually have a few skincare samples in.  Whilst I don't mind trying skincare every now and again, it can be hit or miss with your specific skin type and you only need to see my drawer full of skincare samples to see how many have been useful to me.

If you'd like to see close-ups or a more in-depth review of any of these products please let me know.  I'm also interested to know if you've heard of any of these brands before and what you think of them?

  1. Oh Kayte, I am so excited, what a great box!! I hope I get the same colours as you they are gorgeous. Did your sister get the same? I know they base colour selection on skintone so they may be a little different. What great value.

    Thanks for mentioning me and thanks for sharing :o)

    2. I got mine! My eyeshadows and eyeliner are dark green colours. The lip products are more neutral colours to what Kayte has.
