Here I have a monthly subscription box to share with you! It's called Starlooks Starbox! What it is, is you pay a monthly payment of $15 and you receive 3-4 FULL SIZE makeup/beauty products from the Starlooks line delivered to your doorstep! I received Novembers Starbox (pictured above). This month was dedicated to getting that "prime look". It's a look that all skin tones can wear. They did their best to make this a semi-cusomizable box to match your skin tone. Even if it wasn't meant to be matched with your skin tone, these colors look great on everyone!
The first thing I took out of this box was an eyeshadow quad! I was impressed with this quad not only because of the beautiful universal colors but just the sheer fact that I got FOUR eyeshadows. Other subscription boxes usually give only 4-5 tiny samples never mind a whole quad! The colors I got are Rusting(top left), Midnight in Mongolia(top right), Coffee Bean(bottom left) and Void Echo(bottom right).
Right away I tested the colors out and was impressed with how satin and pigmented they were with on rub of a finger on the pan. I can see why they chose these colors because they can be used together in many different looks or even alone for a simple look and look good with any skin tone and any outfit! Versatile! There were two satin shadows, one matte and the darker one seemed to have a little more glitter in it. Check out the photo below for the swatches. The only thing I wish was that the pans had magnets on them so they wouldn't fall out of the compact. I noticed it because I opened it to fast one day and the pans went flying.
Tender Gloss Lipstick
Along with the shadows, I received a beautiful nude Tender Gloss Lipstick in the color Pearl. What's a Tender Gloss Lipstick? It's a moisturizing lipstick with a sheer coverage that combines lipstick and lip gloss in one! I thought this was brilliant! Usually I'm using a lipstick and then putting gloss over it anyways because some are to drying. This applies very smoothly and is nice and creamy/glossy on the lips. This color is great for day or night! Another versatile product! You can see in the photo above how it has a little bit of sheerness to it and in the photo below you can see the beautiful color actually on my lips! This was my favorite item in the box.
3-in-1 Mascara Guide/Applicator
This months box also came with a little surprise. What you see above is a 3-in-1 mascara guide. This weird looking tool helps prevent you from getting mascara on your perfectly done eyeshadow look. It's actually a really great idea because I can't tell you how many times I've messed up my eyeshadow but rushing with my mascara and getting it on my eyelid or under my eye. Also, on the bottom part of the guide it has a brush like end where you can separate and get rid of dreaded clumps!
I couldn't be more pleased with this November Startbox. For only $15 it's a steal! Decembers box is going to be even better!! It's a $99 value for only $15! Sounds like a great gift idea if you ask me! Preorder your December Starbox by calling (949) 679-0679 or visiting www.starlooks.com!
