November, December and Birthday Edition of Starlooks

This is my third and fourth Starlooks box I have gotten and I will explain why they are all in one post in just a moment but just a reminder that Starlooks is a monthly subscription service based out of the US that does ship to Canada. Its $15 a month and you can expect 3 to 4 full size make up and beauty items each month.

This is my third and fourth box and honestly I am quite pleased with them to date. If you are interested in subscribing please feel free to mention me as a referral.

 
I don’t have pictures for the November box because I was one of the subscribers that encountered problems with their box in shipping and the eye shadows were damaged. One quick call to Starlooks and replacements were sent at no charge and I thought that this was really nice of them to replace them all. They were very sympathetic about the whole thing. This is one of the reason’s I love this company. They have totally amazing customer service reps.
So the replacement shadows came like this.
This is the packaging of the shadows.
Top Row: i163 Celestial and i242 Please me
Bottom Row: i204 Almond me27 and i166 Wicked Wink
Sadly after taking these pictures I had banged my arm and dropped the palette and darn it all  Wicked Wink  was the only one that damaged and it wasn’t salvageable. There is currently a little chunk left. I will eventually replace it once I try it out and if I like it.
This is the swatches on my arm as you can see they are very neutral. All shades I normally wear and looking forward to playing with to create some looks with.
In the November box I also got this lipstick. Its from their Tender Gloss collection. As you can see its very nude and it gives your lips a barely there look which is really nice.
I love the formulation of this and this will be something I will be wearing alot of I am sure. I loved that it didn’t go on greasy like some do.
Another item included in the box was this mascara contraptions. This isn’t something I will be using only because i am not that talented to do two things at once. This is what the palette looks like closed.
This is the December box. Love the packaging. I think the boxes are very simple but elegant looking.
I was super excited for this month because I already knew what it was going to be. But before getting to that I love how cute the product cards look. I think this is the owner of Starlooks. Along with the card was a ton of glitter which I thought was a nice little holiday touch. Even though it got all over the place.
This is the 15 shade palette. Its perfect on its own or you can use them with the November palette for a pop of color. These colors are inspired by Christmas lights.
This is what the palette looks like and its taken from the Starlooks website. Not sure of the names of the colors. Although I am very curious to what the names are. The palette sales for $99.
Something I recently found out was that during your birth month you will get a special box from Starlooks and well this is my birth month so I got a nice little package in the mail.
 
This is the first time I have gotten one and honestly out of all the beauty boxes I get they are the only one who does something special for your birth month. I think that says alot about this little company and one of the reasons I will remain a subscriber.
I got this cute little card with a hand written note inside. Another nice touch on their part.
The first item I pulled out of the box was this lip liner. It went on super smooth and nice. There was no dragging or tugging. It literally went on nice.
I got it in the shade Tipsy. Its coral like in color. Which is a perfect summer shade.
I also got a lipstick that is a moisture rich and it was very moist and nice on the lips. Nothing cakey or sticky about this. This would be the perfect thing for the spring & summer months. I actually really like it and at first I was a little scared but once I put it on I was like oh yea this so will be nice in the warmer months.
This is also in the shade tipsy. The top swatch is the lip liner and the bottom is the lip stick.
Specking of summer this is going to be so nice in the summer its a glimmer glam loose mineral eye shadow. As you can see I just put a dollop on my hand and below is when its blended out.
Its in the shade bb pink and its very sheer and shimmery.
The value of the birthday box is roughly $35 and its at not additional cost me to.

I am really impressed with Starlooks and I find that their make up is really nice and honestly very affordable when you look at it online. Their customer service is amazing and this bonus they do for us in our birth months is truly amazing and very generous of them.

I am looking forward to trying out many more awesome products from them. This is one box I love getting each month.

  1. Wow! That birthday box is such a nice treat! Today I used the base shadows from the November box and layered the golds and a hint of red/purple from the Dec. palette and it looks really great – Starlooks sends some really good items in each box.

  2. I keep seeing such good reviews of them and I really wanna go for it even though I know I don’t wear much eyeshadow and that they include it a lot.. I’m wishing I went for the December box though because of the palette, it’s really nice!! Thanks for sharing!
