Lip Factory June 2013

Lip Factory is a monthly subscription which cost $22 per month. This is a makeup only subscription, so ever month you get various makeup items, which is one of the reasons why I subscribed to this box. If you are interested in subscribing click here.
The first item I received is the Befine Exfoliating Cleanser (One Sample Packet). This exfoliating cleanser has brown sugar, crushed almonds and soothing oats. It’s like food for your face. I can’t wait to try this out. The sample is valued at $2.

The two items are from Mani Panic and they are the Radioactive High Voltage Lip Gloss and the Raven Mascara. The lip gloss is in the color Naked and it is really cool because it has a mirror and when you open it, the top has a light so it is perfect if you find yourself in a dark place like a club or something, so you can easily apply your lip gloss. The value of the lip gloss is $12. The Mascara is just black. I’m looking forward to try it out and see if it really gives volume.  The mascara retails for $10.

The next item is the Essence Volumizing Lash Powder. I have already tried out this product and it definitely gives my lashes volume. I still have to get a hold on how to use it better, because it has a lot of fiber and sometimes I feel like I might use a bit too much, so it bulks up a little. The lash powder retails for $3.49. The next item is the Colour U Cosmetics Loose Shadows in the color Caribbean Sea. It is a nice blue/green or teal like color. Perfect for the summer. The shadow retails for $15.

The next item is from 29 Costmetics and it’s the Reserves Moisturizing Lipstick SPF 20. I got the color Wine Critic and it’s a berry red. This is not a color that I would normally wear, but I will definitely use it. This lipstick sells for $25.      

The last item is the Londontown Nail Lakur in the color Tea Time. It is a nice nude pink which I really like especially for occasions when you want to tone down your nail colors. This retails for $22.

The total value for this month’s box is $89.49, which is an amazing value especially when the whole box only cost $22. I really like this subscription. Did you get this month’s lip Factory? If not, what are you waiting for?

The first item I received is the J. Cats Sparkling Cream Palette. This is the item I was least excited about. I'm not really into glitter so more than likely this is something I will not use. The cost of this item is $4.49

The next item is the NYX Mosaic Powder in the color Silk. I like this color and I think it would go well with my skin. I received a .2 oz size blush and it cost $7.

The next item I received was the Starlooks lip pencil in the color Bear. It is a very neutral color. I will probably use it as a base before applying lipstick. I received a full size lip pencil which retails for $12.
The next item I received was the Cailyn Gel Eyeliner in Iron. I was excited to get this because i have never used a gel eyeliner so it is something new to me and I love the packaging. This is another full sized item and it retails for $21.

The last item Bag is the Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter pencil. I use to highlight my eyebrows. This is a full size and it retails for $18.

The total value of this bag is $62.49 and I only paid $10 for it, so it is a great value. Did you get an ipsy bag this month. Please share what items you received.
