International Beauty Box: Lipfactory July 2013

Another month, another beauty box.  This one comes direct from USA and constantly provides amazing value.  My favourite part of the Lipfactory subscription box is it's always jam packed full of makeup. To date I've never received a sample shampoo, conditioner or body wash.  It really is incomparable to what's available here in Australia.

Anyways I know you all just wanna know what's inside this month's box:

Lipfactory July 2013

7 full size items +  1 bonus product + 1 sample

9 Items in total really is crazy especially considering this  box cost me around $33AUD including delivery.

Let's get into the details...

Kur Nourishing Cuticle Oil
  Kur Nourishing Cuticle Oil by Londontown
Where do I start with this one - It smells amazing, similar to the relaxing scent always found in day spas.  It has a brush attached to the lid but there is also a mini dropper that you can use instead.  The oil is quite a bit thicker than the Manicare Cuticle Oil I'm currently using and feels lovely and hydrating on my cracked cuticles.

La Splash Eyeshadow Duo
LaSplash Smoky Eye Shadow Duo in Heavy Metal
One half shimmery silver and the other is a matte black.  On swatching they seem very pigmented, I can't wait to try these out on my eyes.  This photo doesn't do any justice at all to the colours.

Belleme Cosmetics Eyeliner & 29 Cosmetics Lip Pencil

Belleme Cosmetics - Don't Smudge Eye Liner in Black
A crayon black eyeliner with a very thin lead.  Will definitely be awesome for lining the lash line.

29 Cosmetics - Line Maker Lip Pencil in Cork It
A dark nude coloured lip liner

LaSplash Nail Polish & Sample Moisturiser

 LaSplash Nail Polish in Blowfish
A bright yellow nail polish that I will definitely never wear.

Sample Product - PureCeuticals Clarifying Creme
I'm not a fan of sachet samples but I'm sure one day I will use this moisturiser.

NCLA Nail Wrap

 NCLA Nail Wrap - It Don't Matter
I would never have bought these for myself but I'm definitely going to give them a try - probably only for a feature nail.  There are two sheets and a nail file included.

Blender Sponge

Blender Sponge
I have the original beauty blender and I've heard the knock off's aren't the best but I'm still really intrigued to try it and see how it compares.  An awesome inclusion in the box in my opinion.

29 Cosmetics Lipstick in Stompin Grapes

Bonus Product - 29 Cosmetics Lipstick in Stompin Grapes
I have received this lipstick in a previous box but in a different colour.  If I remember correctly there was an email sent saying that they'd had a problem with a supplier and they couldn't include the product they planned to so they had to send a product we'd had before.  I like that they were completely honest about the issue and instead of just leaving it out and not saying anything (which they could totally have done and got away with) they included what they could and also made sure it was a different colour to last time.

If you want to know more about Lipfactory head over to their website - I promise you it's worth it and more!

What do you think of this beauty box?  Better than what's currently on offer in Australia?
