Ok, so you have NO CLUE how stoked I was when I saw the pamphlet for the September Lip Factory box. Fall is by far my absolute FAV time of year. Something about the atmosphere just screams change is coming, I really feel a well of excitement during this time of year. You have the most awesome holidays in the next few months.
And it's all kicked off with Halloween. I'm already thinking of putting up my decorations. I asked my kids when I should put them up, they said ummm.... OCTOBER. LOL I really would do it NOW, if I didn't think folks would think I was crazier than they already think I am.
So, when I saw this pamphlet all of those excited feelings started bubbling up inside of me! OK OK OK... ONTO THE makeup GOODIES.....
The September Box:
Ok, I am one of those girls who screams from the mountain top about how much I LOVE Lip Factory. However, There just was something that just didn't EXCITE me this time. I really don't know what it was. It could have been a combination of factors, but I think the main reason is that I like balance. When I'm decorating I like to have everything equal. If I have something on the left, I need something in the exact spot on the right. Everything has to be symetrical.
There doesn't seem to be any symetry to this box I guess you could say. Well, I take that back, there is somewhat. But, I like a little of everything, I think that makes the PERFECT box. Last month, I really loved it. But, this month I don't HATE it, but I'm not like OMG this is so spectacular.
But, I'll let you tell me what you think. I could be becoming jaded by all of these boxes. I am really about to take a bit of a chill, unless people want to start sending me FREE boxes to review. It's killing my bank account. My bank account is screaming, NO MORE.... FEEED MEEE
|Girlactik Pout Shine: $19 (Shade: Pretty)|
|J. Cat Eye Liner: $5.99 (Jet Black)|
|Model Co. $26 ( Shadow Trio: Palette 01 Naturally Neutral) |
PLUS Angle Eyeliner Brush: $9.50
|Ofra Lip Gloss: $12.95 (Orchid)|
So, while there really and truly was only one BLAH item to me, I wasn't really WOWED this month. Not like I was last month! Last month besides the lashes, I was really excited! That box got OTHERS excited! This month, um not so much. I mean, maybe I'm wrong. I'm really so disappointed after trying the Girlactik Pout Shine, it's hard to look past it. For the most part, I can see Autumn/ Fall in this box. Although, the lip choice color for the Girlactik doesn't "scream" fall.
The other months, I've received my Lip Factory box, I really have been happy. This time, I will see if I'll end up using the products. If I don't, they will definitley make great gifts for the family.
What do you think of this month's Lip Factory box? Am I just being jaded?? Did it wow you?? What was your favorite part of this whole box?? I love to hear back from folks so I know I'm not just speaking to myself! So please, let me know if I"m just being a brat... Please.
