I cannot find a theme for the June 2014 Lip Factory Box - normally, the theme is printed on the product card. Next month, however, is their anniversary special box, so that ought to be something to look forward to. By law of averages, it should be the all-lips box, but I don't think they will do the all-lips during the anniversary month, since they did not combine the two last year.
Be that as it may, Lip Factory is a makeup-centric beauty box that ships worldwide. They are best-known for brilliant customer care and a greater degree of customisation than many other beauty boxes. Read on for more details.
Here is my unboxing and review of the June 2014 Lip Factory beauty box.As I said, the product card does not have the theme printed anywhere this time.
And, here are the products I received in my Lip Factory beauty box for June 2014.
- Girlactik Eyeshadow in Lush
- Girlactik Eyeshadow in Penny
- Model Co Eye Define Eye Pencil in Black
- Befine Lip Serum
- 29 Cosmetics Line Maker Lip Pencil
- Befine Food Skincare Warming Clay Mask
Last month, Lip Factory had said they would send out Girlactik Beauty products in this box. Girlactik, founded by Hollywood makeup artist Galit Strugano, has been growing very quickly from the beginning.
I am loving the Girlactik Eyeshadows, especially Lush, which is the most beautiful medium rosy mauve. Lush is pearly while Penny is a decent medium neutral shimmery brown. Both are pigmented and soft and smooth and remind me of the best from Sleek. Incidentally, Allure Magazine had picked one of Girlactik's eyeshadows as the best brown eyeshadow of the year in 2007. I would swatch for you, but I am so unbelievably buried in a few dozen last-minute things. And the football. Watch out for eye looks with these, especially the mauve one!
Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub, reviewed here, followed by a dollop of Dr Smith's Rosebud Lip Salve, reviewed here, so I do hope this product does what it says.
Befine Food Skincare Warming Clay Mask, which I have reviewed here. If I had to pick one absolute favourite face mask ever, this would be it. It warms up on the face, does not dry tight, is easy to rinse off, and leaves my skin squeaky-clean and smooth. Having tried this mask before, I know that this pachette is good for three uses, easily - four at a pinch.
I know a lot of people got the Palladio Nail Strengthener base coat in this box, but the Befine Mask is instead of that - nail polish is HAZMAT and is not allowed to be shipped internationally. I have a dozen or so base coats, so I don't mind the skip at all. I love Lip Factory for finding a replacement that cost exactly as much. And, no lip gloss in this box! The only thing I was a bit meh about was the lip pencil, although 29 Cosmetics is not a low-end/drugstore brand.
So after the last couple of disappointing boxes, I am much happier with this one and hope Lip Factory continues to send out decent boxes. I would love to see more from Girlactik, maybe a brush or two or the Matte Lip Paints! I already have a colour in mind for me :)
