Lip Factory is another monthly subscription box that I have only recently tried. Last month was an All About Lips box and only had lip products, most of which I wasn’t interested in. This month had more variety, but again, I found myself not liking the colors or not finding much new and/or interesting. With Lip Factory being $21 with only mediocre brands (but full sizes), at this time I have decided to cancel since I am trying to save money and need to cut out a couple subscriptions. However, I do want to share what I got this month with you and what I think just in case anyone if looking to see if Lip Factory would be a good monthly subscription for them:
Jesse’s Girl Kohl Eyeliner in Black ($1.99) – basically a cheap black pencil eyeliner. Considering I have multiple high-end ones I have received from other boxes, I will trade this one.
Ofra Lipstick in 107 ($13) – I have never heard of this brand. I am simple not interested in another red lipstick, I have one I like already. Will go to trade.
Be A Bombshell Eye Shadow in Tempted ($14) – this is darker in person than I can get with my camera. It’s kind of a peach, pink, orange color. I simple do not think it will work for me.
Be A Bomshell Eye Crayon in Black Jack ($14) – I am not sure about the quality of this eye crayon, but I don’t need m ore black eye shadow/liner so this will go to trade as well
Color Club Nail Polish in Peace Out Purple ($8) – ugh…purple…not only purple, florescent purple, which I didn’t even know existed. I was hoping for a color I’d love and I just didn’t get it. Hoping to be able to trade/ebay this one as well.
NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream ($5) – this is the only thing I’ll keep out of this whole box. It’s actually as pink as the tube and definitely not peachy colored to me. I haven’t put it on yet, but I needed a good pink gloss!
So there it is. I paid $21 and got about $56 in retail value of products. Unfortunately I only liked $5 worth. This one, for me, was a total loss. I am hoping to fine some good homes for some of this stuff and maybe pick up a few things I’d be more likely to use. I know quite a few people really love this sub, it’s just not for me at this time. It’s also not as popular as some of the others, so maybe there is a reason behind that as well.
