Starlooks: Cosmetics For The Look of A Star

Starbox Subscriptions Box

     You have quite a choice when it comes to choosing a brand of cosmetics these days.  You also have quite a choice in monthly subscription services for beauty boxes. It’s the all new rage, a monthly subscription service where you have items delivered directly to your door for a small fee.  One of my favorites is by a company called Starlooks which makes their own line of cosmetics, hair care products and other beauty items. Their monthly subscription box, called the Starbox, is different than some of the other boxes in that they will send you 3 or 4 full sized products from their own line.  Not samples, full size products.  Each box will have a minimum value of around $35, but will only cost you $15, not a bad deal! You can also go onto the Starlooks site and see a preview of that month’s box, what came in boxes over the months past, and, best of all, find tips on how to wear the products in each months box by visiting the Looksbook.

     When my box arrived, I could hardly wait to open it! It came in this pretty black box embossed with the Starlooks logo in gold, and tied with a baby blue ribbon. Opening the box, then separating the cheerful peach-colored tissue paper, I discovered three full sized products along with two crystals. There was a very nice Small Precision eye shadow brush, an eye shadow and an eye liner pencil.
Small Precision Brush #813
What They Say: One of an entire line of professional make up brushes.
What I Say: A very nice brush, perfect for detailed, precise application. Soft bristles. A good addition to my growing set!
Price: $15

Neutral Eye Shadows in Caricature
What They Say: Richly pigmented eye shadows that glide on smoothly. Available in matte, shimmer or frost, 43 shades.
What I say: I like this a lot! It comes in this nice, handy case that opens up to include a mirror and small foam applicator. The eye shadow does go on very smoothly, long lasting. The shade I received, Caricature, is a very light brown, shimmery shade. Unfortunately, it is hard to see with my skin tone, but would make a great addition for highlighting other colors.
Price: $9

Diamondline Eye Pencil in Myth
What They Say: An opaque, metallic finish eye pencil, great as a liner, or try using a brush and blending all over the eyelid as an eye shadow. Available in six shades.
What I Say: I really liked this eye liner! The shade I received is called Myth which is a metallic, dark silvery-gray. A very soft pencil that goes on quite easily, and is a cinch to blend. I had to be super careful when applying as it does want to smear easily since the lead is so soft.
Price: $8

     Verdict: All in all I was very satisfied with my box. The total value of the items is around $32, not including the cost of the two crystals which I can use for jewelry or something else creative.  Not a bad deal for $15!   I was impressed with the quality of the brush and make up, and would definitely recommend joining Starlooks’ monthly subscription box service, Starbox. You can subscribe through the site and get the boxes for yourself, or give them to a friend as a wonderful gift idea!

I love the liner. Seems like it's the right amount of glitter; not overkill, but enough to make the eyes pop. :)

I love subscription boxes, it's nice to have a predictable little "surprise" in the mail each month. The color of that eyeshadow is very nice, something I would probably wear. Thanks for the review.

I love the eyeshadow color. I loved my starbox too! I am thinking of signing up for this monthly box. I usually do not like monthly boxes. However, this one is very nice.

I need that brush!!!!! The makeup is beautiful too, I'm in dire need of the look of a Star.

This is exactly what I need. Love how easily it glides on. My skin is getting older around my eyes and this looks like it would go on easily.

From what i've been reading this looks like one of the better boxes out there. I really like the eyeliner they sent you.
