Lip Factory - December Box

Lip Factory came and it was a total surprise! For the sake of the goodies not getting smashed they had to switch boxes from the lip box, so it was a totally surprise to me this month and a joy to open. I might miss the look of the kiss box, but it’s great that they made the change to protect what is important, the fabulous make-up inside! 

You all should know by now what Lip Factory is and hopefully you have all subscribed so you are not missing out but in case you are new let me tell you Lip Factory is an awesome monthly beauty box. While there is often a mix of products inside the focus is strongly on lip products. 

The MeMeMe Boho Balm Lip & Cheek Tint was unique for me because I had never even considered using a rouge and lip balm interchangeably - what a fabulous idea.  I love the name.. MeMeMe is so, well, me! The little tin it came in was too cute too. The shades in the tin were coral and taupe and can be blended together to make the perfect shade for your lips or cheeks. The coral really made a lovely shade of gloss on it‘s own. It goes on very creamy and isn’t really tacky like some glosses can be.

A PureCeuticals Pumpkin Enzyme Cleanse sample was included as well. It is a gentle cleanser that is designed to remove surface impurities and excess cellular build up. I was very pleased that this didn’t irritate my skin either. I have pretty sensitive skin when it comes to cleansers. Plus for something that was okay for sensitive skin the scent was absolutely lovely.

The Michael Marcus Plump Lip Plumper, a twenty dollar value, gives you instantly plumper lips and great shine. It also hydrates while it adds volume. It is an off white shade that goes on clear and it has a lovely scent that reminds me of mint chewing gum. I totally love Michael Marcus products and I’m always tickled when I see them in the box.

From the NCLA Blvck Mvrket collection was an absolutely gorgeous glitter polish with a purple base.  It is called Prized Possessions and has a lot of purple and blue shades in the glitter. The best part, aside from how smashing and eye-catching it is, is that it is a ‘5 free’ polish, which means it is free of the top 5 nasties that are found in many polishes. 

From essence was a Lash and Brow Gel Mascara. I have seen but never used a clear mascara before. For me having unruly eyebrows, which is one thing this would be perfect for, isn’t a super big issue. I did use it in my eyebrows and it did give them a more manicured shape. It also helped to make my eyelashes thicker but I found I would still need a dark mascara over it because my eye lashes are just too few and too faint otherwise. I will probably recommend this to a friend, who I won’t name, that has crazy brows. 

My absolute favorite this time wasn’t a lip product, go figure, it usually is! The Jcat Fab Five Eye Shadow Palette was just loaded with five colors that I loved. That rarely happens for me in a palette with more than three shades. I received the Bronze Creature palette and I just adore golds and browns on my eyes, so imagine how happy I was! These were all nicely pigmented shades with a hint of shimmer. 

Another smashing success this month from Lip Factory and as always a fantastic value with only one sample size the box had 5 full size products and the total value was $56.33! That’s over twice the cost of only $22/month for U.S. subscribers and no charge for shipping. If you are in Canada it is $26/month which includes a $4 shipping charge. Plus $32/month for all other international subscribers which includes $10 shipping charge.

Plus you can really feel good about purchasing from them because they donate a percentage of each box sold to the Compassionate Hands and Hearts Breast Cancer Outreach. To sign up and get full details please visit the Lip Factory site. You can also connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.

Disclosure: I may receive products in exchange for an honest review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I personally believe will be good for my readers.
