 Last year the June theme was bridal. I don't know if that will be the same this year or not. May was so good! Anyone have a dream box list to share?

I am excited about June...I actually liked Aprils box better than Mays so I am hoping for some really great products in June :)  Of course Lippies of any summer colors would be great!

I have been wanting to subscribe to Lip Factory for a few months now, I wonder if June will finally get me to do it! I cancelled two of my Birchboxes, so I have the extra $20 floating around. Is there a deadline to subscribe by to get June's box?

I think you can subscribe any time until they sell out...as long as it's in June?

 

Anyway, I loved both April and May's box. In terms of favorite sub boxes this one is most definitely winning right now. And there are so many other products I want to try from the brands in May's box. Eeek!

I got my shipping notice on June 19 and it's had no movement since then...it still says Electronic Shipping info received on June 20 &  "The U.S. Postal Service was electronically notified by the shipper on June 20, 2014 to expect your package for mailing. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date. Delivery status information will be provided if/when available. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later."

 

Is that normal? This is my first LipFactory so I have no idea what to expect. Thanks!

Yes, it's normal. Usually when I get my shipping notice, I get my stuff 10-14 days later. I assume they send the boxes out in waves. Sometimes it takes a looooong time.

 

Trust me though, it's worth the wait. :)

I finally got my tracking notice today! I'm in Oregon. Now the looooooooong wait. I am totally happy that at least of all my subs I have one that is fairly local. I get my starlooks within 2 days of shipping but most other subs take forever. So impatient! I cant wait for my new Lip Factory!!

I got this sub mixed up with " Lip Monthly" which is having lots of problems. 
Whew, glad to have escaped the mess. Lip Factory has lovely products shown on their site. I think it will be fun. :)

The thing I love the most about Lip Factory is that every month they send me at least 1 product from a brand I've either never heard of, or never tried. I would say that typically I've never tried  most of the brands, and I've found some really great products.

Picking my up from the post office today. It isn't my favorite but it does have some good stuff.

 

For the love of god, why does every single beauty sub keep repeatedly sending out black eyeliners? I got one in my lf box last month. I  hate black eyeliner with a fiery passion. Why don't they send out brown, or gray or I don't know ANY COLOR BESIDES BLACK. I don't know what I'm going to do with the brown lip liner either.

 

I don't know how useful it is, but I do like the lip serum. It feels nice and has a very very light scent. That's the best product in the box in my opinion. I don't care for the color of my model co gloss so I won't be using it, but it smells really good and the girltactik shadow is pretty. I got the color "penny" I don't know if there are any other variations but I like this one.

I got a kind of dark, dusky denim color called Electra and I love it. My eyes are grayish blue and it's a fantastic crease color for me. I will definitely be checking out this brand. My lip gloss is a  really hot pink, but it looks good on, not too bold.

Oh that sounds pretty! The color I got works perfectly with my eyes as well, it's oddly similar to about a million other colors I have, so it's right up my alley. It's really really pigmented. I put it on with my ring finger and blended the crap out of it.

 

The gloss I got is light pink. It's called marshmallow. Way too light for me, but I can't stop smelling it.

I'm a lot more bummed out than I thought I'd be.
Wins: I love love the lip serum, I am happy I got the top coat polish instead of sunscrean polish but both options are pretty lousy
Fails: BROWN lip liner *leather*? Ew.....into the costume makeup you go for "something zombie" ...maybe..., the lipgloss is seriously Barbie pink "Rosie" and smells like lipgloss I bought as a tween (it does go on lighter *thankfully* but is too sticky for me)

Neutrals: Black eyeliner (eh, its eyeliner, not good eyeliner as it smears easily but it could be worse), The Girlactik star shadow I like but its a neutral from Lip Factory. The formula is great and smooth but they sent me a pink shade "lush" that is almost exactally the same as my Medusa shadow last month. :(  (I so wish I would have gotten that Electra shade! *or anything but pink*)

I have at least one more month so I shall remain optimistic that next month will be better haha.

    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.
