International Beauty Box - LipFactory August 2013

The last of my 3 Beauty Box Subscriptions arrived late last week and as this one comes from America and is primarily makeup products, I always look forward to opening it up.

The theme this month is 'The Diva in You' and the box contained 6 full-size beauty products.

Here's what I got:

Lipfactory August 2013

NYX Wonder Pencil in Light
This really is a wonder product as it claims to do three things; conceal flaws & blemishes, Line lips against lipstick bleeding and brighten eyes along the waterline.  I would imagine this product is very similar to the Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in Nude which I'm absolutely loving in my waterline at the moment so I look forward to trying out this product.

White Towel Makeup Remover
This is a single 100% cotton cloth with makeup remover.  Perfectly packaged for traveling and since it is a cotton cloth I imagine it can be rinsed out and used again as a normal wash cloth.

ColourU Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Skinny Dip
This matte brown lipstick just isn't  my thing.  This shade is not suited to my colouring and I'm not a fan of matte lips.

Red Cherry Lashes & Sweetpea & Fay Liquid Lipstick

 Red Cherry Eyelashes in Black
So excited to see these lashes in the box as I've wanted to try the Red Cherry brand for a long time.  I can't wait to try them on.

Sweetpea & Fay Liquid Lipstick in Imogen
Unfortunately I have already received this exact same product - colour and all - in a previous box.  It's pretty disappointing because not only is it a duplicate it's not the product that is shown on the product card.  Apparently I was supposed to receive a Sweetpea & Fay Lip Joule.

MeMeMe Shimmer Stack in Gold

MeMeMe Shimmer Stack in Gold
I hadn't heard of the MeMeMe brand before receiving another illuminating product in my August Her Fashion Box so was really surprised to see it surface again here.  This is a beautiful gold shimmery highlighting powder that I imagine is going to look stunning on.  Can't wait to experiment with this - I much prefer powder highlighters to liquid as I find them easier to use.

Overall I was pretty happy with this month's box.  There are a couple of things I won't use (the two lip products) but the rest I definitely can't wait to try out.

The Lipfactory Beauty Box is a subscription service that costs $32USD each month which includes shipping to Australia.  Depending on where the USD is at I find it costs me between $33-$35 AUD.  Lipfactory always has full-sized makeup products that are valued much higher than the purchase price and continually blow me away with what's inside.  It's also a great chance to try products we can't get here in Australia.

What did you think of this month's Lipfactory boxes?  Are you a fan of beauty subscription boxes or do you think they're a waste of money?

  1. This looks great. I've been thinking of signing up, but already have too many beauty box subscriptions. I need to dump on first before signing up to another one :)

    1. I so know what you mean Amy - I'm currently deciding myself which one to unsubscribe to as well - getting waaaay too many samples
