International Beauty Box - Lipfactory September 2013

Lipfactory September 2013

All the beauty boxes I subscribe to seem to be arriving later and later each month but this box which comes from America has still managed to beat the arrival of Bellabox.  In fact Bellabox hasn't even been shipped yet but we're getting off topic. 

The Lipfactory box contained 6 full sized products and 2 samples...

ModelCo Shine Ultra Lip Gloss in Strip Tease
I find it quite amusing that this Australian product was shipped all the way to America only to be shipped back to me here.  This is a lovely shimmery pinky neutral gloss that I'm bound to use this coming Summer.

Bombshell Cosmetics Eyeliner in Amethyst
This is a felt tip eyeliner which claims to be water resistant.  It's in a beautiful purple shade and because you use it just as you would a marker I imagine it would be super easy to use.  Can't wait to try this out.

J Cat Beauty The Big Eye Pencil in Charcoal
This looks very similar to the NYX eye pencils and can be used as an eyeshadow or eyeliner.  It's not a brand I've heard of before which is one of the main reason I love subscribing to this box.

LA Fresh Waterproof Makeup Remover x2
I got one of these recently and it worked really well so I'm glad to get another couple of these. They'll come in handy when I go on holiday to NZ in a couple of weeks.

Absolute Oil Control Tissues
This is a pack of 50 oil blotting tissues.  My skin's on the dry side so I'll probably give these to a friend.

Bombshell Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Nude Beach
This is a browny gold colour that is completely not my colour.  Another one to give away.

Nabi Pencil Sharpener
This was a bonus product and is a sharpener with two different sized holes making it great for sharpening all sizes of eyeliners.  Was really happy to receive this product.

I was pretty happy with most things in this box but I'm finding that I'm just getting overloaded with products from all these beauty boxes and I'm just not getting around to using them.  This box costs approximately $35 depending on the conversion rate at the time but because I'm not using the products inside it's just not good value for me to keep purchasing them.  For the time being I've cancelled my subscription to Lipfactory but I would still not hesitate to recommend them as a great subscription service.  Especially if you're looking for mainly makeup products and different brands that aren't available here in Australia.

What do you think of this month's box?

  1. I found that as well, when I was subscribed to these boxes I was overwhelmed with products that I probably would never get around to using! It does look like a great option though :)
