This is my first Lip Factory Inc. subscription box. This was one of the first boxes I wanted to subscribe to when I first started with subscription boxes. Don’t ask me why it took me so long to subscribe lol! For $26 per month ($22 + 4 shipping to Canada), each month, you will receive your Lip Factory Beauty Kit containing 5 to 7 of your favorite makeup brands. Although your kit may include a full face of makeup products, their focus is on your lips! Your kit may include lip products such as lip glosses, lip sticks, lip liners and lip therapy products. Their products are chosen each month by our expert team of beauty specialists and makeup artists. I was really excited for this one to come, but what is up with shipping these days? Everything I’ve ordered lately has taken forever to get it here. Anyway it’s here, that’s all that matters.
This month’s theme is “Under The Veil” curated by MUA: Lena Graham. The May box is inspired by the bridal season, nude glosses, stunning pigments and a hint of blush allows you to develop a look that is perfect for any occasion. There was no product info card with this box, but they have the products listed on their website. Here’s what I received:
Studio 277 Lip Gloss (Almost Nude)
Brings long-lasting shine and sheer colour to lips with a hint of shimmer. Moisturizes, softens and smooths lips. Use alone for a natural look or wear over your lipstick to enhance colour and add shine.
I really like this shade, very subtle. Love that it’s full size too. I only have a slight problem with the fact that the label was peeling off, just makes it feel low budget ya know.
NYX Colour Lip Balm
Add colour and moisture to your lips in one application. When your lips crave hydration and you crave colour, NYX Cosmetics new Color Lip Balm is the perfect option! Get the moisture, shine, and a sheer wash of colour your lips desire while still looking natural.
LOVE! This is really perfect for me! The shade is kind of like a deepish coral (kind of hard to describe), but goes on sheer and feels nice and creamy on your lips. I seriously love it!
NYX Round Lip Gloss (Sparkle)
Provides sheer coverage with robust colour to accentuate a pretty pout. Made with mineral oils and Vitamin D.
This is a very glittery girly pink colour. I’ve mentioned it before that I’m pretty particular about pink for my lips and this one isn’t for me. To be fair, I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m pretty sure it won’t look so good on me.
Studio 277 Eyelight Pigments (Kryptonite)
Highly pigmented eye shadows. Great for travel and easy to store. All colors are truly stunning and highly metallic buildable colors. Use with a primer.
This colour looks like it will compliment my hazel eye colour for sure. It's a green metallic with a bit of gold. Can’t wait to try this. On the website they even have a little video demo to show you how to use loose pigments.
Flat Sponge Blender Brush
Easy & convenient, this fool-proof makeup tool is engineered with a soft sponge tip to pick up the perfect of foundation, for a smooth, even, flawless makeup application.
I’ve tried different foundation brushes, but not a sponge brush. So I’m curious as to how well it will work.
Be A Bombshell Blush (Beach Please)
A high pigmented long lasting formula for all day wear.
I’m glad I received a full size blush! I’ve seen this brand before but, have never tried it. I’ve been looking for a new blushes to try too, so this is great. However, this shade is too bright. This looks like almost the exact same shade I’ve tried in the past and well, I ended up looking like a clown, so I’m a little scared with this one.
PureCeuticals Kukui Nut Mineral Scrub
Full Size $40 / Sample $3
Cleanse, refine, and exfoliate with this all natural, creamy mineral volcanic scrub. Filled with nature's finest ingredients, see an immediate improvement in the appearance and texture of skin.
I don’t use scrubs on my face as much as I used to, but will certainly give this a try. A try is all I’ll get out of it anyway haha.
Overall I got exactly what I thought I would get from Lip Factory Inc., so I’m very happy. Great products that for the most part I will use and a great value. I think I’m going to stay with them for at least another month. What did you think of the box this month? Do you subscribe? If not, please give them a try.
