Lip Factory Beauty Kit March 2013

I recently subscribed to the Lip Factory from the US and received my first box today.  I am so excited by this box and everything I received I couldn't wait to share it with you all.

This was my box when it arrived, the outer box a thick cardboard postal box and when I opened it I found a smaller box inside with some black packing.  And now for the exciting bit this is what was in my box this month.

I received a Welcome card and a card describing the box.   The best bit though, I found six yes SIX  full-sized lip products, a lip brush and 1 sample all for $22US + $10US shipping.  $32 and I received all these amazing goodies.  The total value of this box for the six full-sized items is $79.50US + the sample.  I know some of these products would probably cost more to purchase in Australia if they are available, so even with the extra shipping this is a totally worth it box.

Every four months they have an "all about the lips" box which just so happens to be this month, they are predominantly a lip sample service but they do sample cosmetics and skincare too.  It is very easy to subscribe and they accept PayPal as well as credit cards and they DO ship internationally.

The do have profiling and I received a good selection of shades.  Lipsticks, lip pencils, lip gloss and the colours ranged from pink to a deep berry.  I liked that I received products from companies I hadn't sampled before, I love trying new stuff.

Well for my first box, I am really happy with the contents.  I received notification that the box had been sent on the 11th and it arrived on the 20th March, so there really isn't that long to wait, everything arrived well packed and in perfect condition.

I haven't used all the products yet but I will update as I try each one and let you know.

If there is anything else you would like to know just ask me in the comments and I will reply.


  1. Okay I'm sold. I'm going to ask for this as a birthday present! I'm not really a gloss person, but can sell or giveaway stuff I don't need. $32 for six full-sizes plus overseas shipping is a steal. Are you re-subscribing? Also, once you have the time, could you do a post sorting the boxes you've tried out into overseas shipping and no overseas shipping? That would be of great help to lazy sods like me.

    1. No worries ReNu, yes I have subscribed to their monthly box, I am blown away by what I received. No two of these lip products were the same, I will give away what I don't use too but I just have to try all of these lol.....
