February Starbox by Starlooks {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

This is my FIFTH Starbox, and each time I open another box, I am impressed, pleased, and so satisfied with what comes in the mail.  I can’t WAIT for it to arrive!  If you’re new, let me explain what it is.

Starbox is a monthly subscription box full of full-size professional makeup, and for only $15/month.  But unlike many other subscription boxes that I have tried, Starbox brings you FULL-SIZE items that last more than one or two applications.  This is also not an assortment of obscure and upcoming/unknown brands–they send products from the Starlooks makeup line, which is seriously PRO quality makeup, comparable to Sephora, M.A.C, Chanel, and Dior.

logo_animLet me woo you a little with their past boxes so you can get a taste of what you could be getting:

Here is last April, November, December, and January.  (The highlight was December’s box: a $99 value eyeshadow palette!)  If you subscribed for one year, imagine the complete transformation and wide array of high-end makeup you’d have in your collection!  And all from the same brand for a uniform, professional look in your makeup box.IMG_9927

This month was no exception to the high-quality things that come Starbox delivers every month.  Within the box was a cream shadow in Phaser ($12), Lipstick in Drew ($12), and pigment in Tungsten ($17).  Starbox will often throw in an extra freebie, like a pencil sharpener or a nail file.  This month was a stretchy headband ($1?) to keep the hair out of your face while you paint away.  That makes this month a $42 value.

IMG_9931Since purply orchid IS the Pantone color of the year, I thought this lilac color (+purple headband) were spot on.  You can use the cream shadow as a base or as a color pop, and I think its a great shade to transition us into spring.  The loose pigment in that dark Tungsten color is intense!  It is dark, easy to apply, adheres well, and lasts throughout the day.  Be careful with this one and don’t slip up!  Its like painting on your face with ashes.

IMG_9936Starbox’s lipsticks are fantastic.  They aren’t drying and they last for hours.  I wore last month’s lipstick + gloss to a family dinner, a wedding, the wedding reception, church, etc.  Its a favorite in my bag.  This Drew shade is sheer metallic shimmer that looks kind of spacey, but the theme of this month was “Futuristic” after all.

IMG_9970I love all the new things I’ve been able to try with Starbox.  I love my growing collection of this high-end makeup line!  Add to your makeup box some of the newest, most affordable, high quality makeup, all while being entirely lead free, emolient free, and cruelty free.

November Starbox by Starlooks {Review}

As a little girl, I remember how much I loved watching my mom get ready for church or for a date with my dad.  She gave me a pink blush kit that was almost gone to play with, and I remember primping in front of the mirror with that terribly frayed blush brush all the time!  Makeup is magical at any age!  Painting yourself up is just so fun.

Starlooks is a pro-quality makeup line with a monthly subscription box option where you get to try the entire line at an exclusive discounted price!  If you’re a subscription box guru, you know that $15/month is a steal.  Especially when you’re getting 3-4 full size items.  The value of what you’re getting is between $35.00 – $99.00, so do the math.  Here were the last three month’s boxes:

Subscribe to Starbox before December 10th to receive the incredible December Starbox, containing our Starlooks’ $99 VALUE, 15 Shade Eye Shadow Palette.  Subscriptions are only $15/mo + shipping!

Knowing what I was getting into, of course, I was pleased as punch to be able to review November’s box!

box2This month’s goodies included the “Monaco” 5 Shade Shadow Palette ($41), “Orion” Infinity Pot Liner ($13), a “Slanted Liner” Brush ($18), and an eye and lip pencil sharpener.

I had the opportunity to review a Starbox a few months ago (and you can read that review HERE), and there were a few things that made this monthly subscription box stand out from the rest.  First of all, they send full-size items, not samples.  You are getting a product that will last you much longer than one or two applications just to test it out.  You’re getting products that will last you weeks/months.  Also, all of the products you are getting are of the Starlooks brand.  This makeup line rocks.  This is a PRO quality makeup line, comparable to Makeup Forever, Sephora, M.A.C, Chanel, and Dior.

Ok, at first sight, the amount of color in this box looked a little crazy, but I gave it a shot.  The included pictures of how to use all 5 of these colors at once was helpful.  The look is really fun, and though it might be a little loud for church, this is perfect for date night!box3Same with the blue liner.  It is dark enough while also not being too sparkly, so it looks professional and not as juvenile as I thought it would.  I’ll certainly keep using it and love it more each time :).  What I REALLY love is this eyeliner brush!  Its actually my first one to own, and I really love being able to apply my liner with such a fantastic brush.  The slant angle makes it super easy to use and the look is gorgeous.

IMG_8733IMG_8718

Kind of crazy, but I like it!  I love the ease in which this makeup goes on and stays on.  It looks and feels high-quality, and the color combination is so fun.

If you’re into eyeshadow, I have it on good authority that you should RUN over to Starlooks and sign up for the Dec. box!!  You will not regret this one, ladies.  Give the gift of a Starbox Subscription to a friend / loved one for the holidays, and they will receive the December Starbox – an incredible $99 value! – which will contain their 15 Shade Eye Shadow Palette!
