International beauty box: Lip Factory Box review, unboxing, photos

Lip Factory was the first international beauty box I "discovered", thanks to Jac. This is no mere sampling programme - for $32 including international postage, you get six full-sized products according to your profile. As the name says, every four months, the box will be lip-centric. Otherwise, you can expect a lippy or two and a nail polish and an eye item in almost every box. Because everything is full-sized, this is really good value for money ($5.50 or so per product is darn cheap, currency fluctuations notwithstanding).

Anyway, back to the subject. My June box got lost in the post and Lip Factory, always known for their exceptional customer care, sent me a replacement and here it is!
A cute black box with the Lip Factory logo, with a product card, was packed amid loads of shreddings. And the box was nicely jam-packed, just as a beauty box should be. Inside the box were:
Manic Panic Radioactive lip gloss: This is a gorgeous red gloss which fades into a less-red stain that lasts very well. There is a light within the lid, and a mirror. A keeper.
Essence Voluminising Lash Powder: As I have sorry excuses for eye lashes, I'm looking forward to trying this out.
Colour U Eyeshadow: A duochrome blue-gold shadow. I really like how this looks on my skin tone.
29 Cosmetics Lipstick in Berry Stain: One word. Love. My perfect dusty rose, and this has INSANE staying power. No dryness on application. Another keeper.
Manic Panic Creature of the Night mascara: Unfortunately, the wand has broken off inside, so I have no idea what this is like. They've promised to send me a replacement, so we'll see.
Londontown Lakur: A lovely colour, and great formula. I had full opacity with one coat. Yet another keeper.
Sample product: Befine Food Skin Care Exfoliating Cleanser: Paraben-free. There's enough for two uses here, but as there are six full-size products, you tend to gloss over the 10ml sachet!

I'm looking forward to seeing what's in the September box, and to receiving the replacement Manic Panic mascara.
