It’s All About the Lips

“Your look is not complete until you add lipgloss. It is all about the lips!”

-Laurie Best, Lip Factory Inc. CEO

This month’s Lip Factory Inc. Beauty Box is definitely all about the lips! Like I mentioned in a previous post, I immediately fell in love with Lip Factory Inc. and this month’s box did not disappoint! Not only did it arrive in a timely manner, the presentation was awesome too. This month’s box was filled with nothing but lip products. And as we all know adding a little pop to your lips is a great to switch up your look for the holidays.

I loved the lip colors in this month’s box! I’m not quite sure where I’d rock Undead by Medusa’s Makeup but the tubing is amazing. And I really love that the MODELCo. Lipstick tube has a built-in mirror on the side, it’s a simple feature that adds so much, like extra room in my clutch…lol. The verdict still stands, I highly recommend Lip Factory Inc. Beauty Box to all my beauty junkies and newbies to makeup! It’s definitely an affordable service, just $22/month and as you can see it’s filled with quality products.

What’s your favorite product in this month’s Lip Factory Inc. Beauty Box? Do you agree that it’s definitely all about the lips this month? Do you have a favorite lip shade for the holiday season?

The Pillow Box – July 2013

I know I say this all the time but it’s so true…I love the My Shade of Brown Pillow Box. I’ve been posting about the MSB Pillow Box for quite some time now (here and here just to share a few) and the excitement never ends!

If you are new to the blog and not familiar with My Shade of Brown let me tell you…My Shade of Brown provides a monthly beauty subscription service called the Pillow Box. And what makes this particular monthly subscription service different from all the rest is that the products included in the Pillow Box are geared towards women of color.

I received this month’s box on late last week and of course I opened it immediately. Check out what was inside….

Blogger Box Swap Party

SONY DSC

About a month ago my girl Mo of Curls and Mo tagged me in a tweet about a Blogger Box Swap Party sign up happening over on Keep Sitting Pretty and Melissa Chanel. After clicking the link, I thought “wow what a fun way to mix & mingle with other bloggers and score some cool stuff too!” So I immediately signed up! A few weeks later I got an email from Melissa of Melissa Channel stating that I was chosen as one of the bloggers…I was super excited! This was going to be my first Blogger Box Swap and I couldn’t wait to find out who I was paired up with.

Well about week after receiving my confirmation email, I received an email from Kelly of Keep Sitting Pretty with my Blogger Box Swap buddy’s information. And guess who I paired with??? My girl Mo…I laughed because the entire time I was thinking who coincidental and funny it would be if we had gotten paired up. One, we already know each other via social media and emails. Two, we have been working together for several months as natural hair staff writers for Longing4Length. And three, I like to think of her as one of my virtual BFF’s (if there is even such a term) because she has been super supportive since we virtually met months ago through Bloggers Like Me. Needless to say I was thrilled to be paired with Mo! I immediately started working on her box and you can check out what I sent her here.

I was so excited when I my box from Mo came in the mail, y’all know I opened it immediately! She sent me some awesome goodies…see for yourself.

Can you say MANICure Monday...Mo good looking out!

I love all of the goodies that Mo sent. But if you have been following my blog for a while then you know how much I love Shea Moisture products and I have been dying to try out their body scrubs…so those would have to be my favs!

I would like to thank Kelly and Melissa for hosting such an awesome Blogger Box Swap Party. I had so much fun participating. And thanks Mo for sending me all the great goodies; I can’t wait to try them all out!

Have you tried any of the products in the box I got from Mo?
