Starlooks Starbox - August 2015 Review & Looksbook - First Look


          As you already know, Starlooks Starbox is a monthly makeup subscription box from StarLooks. Custom Starbox provides 3 (they are changing that into 4 products from this month.. yayyyy!!!) Starlooks products/Perfect Size® Cosmetics, and 3 Starlooks Gift Cards, which can be redeemed towards more awesome stuff!!!

   My August box was a bit delayed, due to change in my house location. I had to let Starlooks know about my new address & figure out if they can send the box to my new address. Surprisingly, their customer service was pretty awesome. Not only they shipped me my August Starbox, but also sent me the first LooksBook box(Resort Edition) too.


LooksBook is also just $12 a month, free shipping included. It includes three new Perfect Size® (usually about ¾ of full-size) Starlooks PRO cosmetic formulas & colors. They are all tucked in a travel-size “book”, along with tips and tutorials booklet on how to apply the products & how to get the most out of each item.


   As usual, the August box was a white box with a golden twine bow. I had chosen three makeup products:

* Gold Coast Starlooks eyeshadow: ($13)  I love all earthly colors in the eyeshadow, especially gold. This has a nice shimmer and is long lasting too. The note in Starlooks website says this can be used as bronzer as well...!!!





Starlooks Perfect Size Just Say Yes: ($9) This is a pretty peachy pink lipgloss with a slight vanilla scent. It is slightly sticky in texture.




 * "Brun" Longwear Eye Pencil: ($10.25) This kohl eyeliner has a really deep brown color and glides on so easily.  The website says we can blend it for a lasting smokey eye.


As usual, I received 3 giftcards along with the Starbox: Starlooks Pro card ($10), Nomad tribe ($25) & the Onyx XOXO ($15).


Now coming to the LooksBook box (Resort Edition). It is just very pretty & gives out a rich feel, if you know what I mean..


Now about its contents:

Starlooks Highlighter/Blush Duo in BHD1 Tropic/Ritz (0.06 oz./1.6 g) (Approx $12-13 as this product isn’t on the website yet)

The highlighter “Ritz” is a golden champagne and is very strong. It is a pretty sheen color & looks like it can double as an eyeshadow as well. The blush “Tropic” is a nice peachy/orange & I personally like this more than the other. 

* Starlooks Lipstick in LS1 Jet Set (0.03 oz./1.0 g)(Approx $9-10 as this product isn’t on the website yet)

This lipstick is a coral that is on the pink side. This lipstick applies patchy and clings to any dryness on the lips. This looks ok, but I would prefer something more creamy & a tad bit bright than this.

* Starlooks Water Eyeshadow in WS1 Aqua (0.08 oz/2.5 g) (Approx $14-15 as this product isn’t on the website yet)

This eyeshadow stick is a pretty aqua shade with gold shimmer pretty, subtle aqua color with gold shimmer. This is a bit sticky product and might need some loose translucent powder to avoid smudging.




 The box also included tips of how to use the product to its maximum. If we subscribe to buy this box, then i believe this also includes the 3 choice gift cards. As this came to me part of my August custom Starbox, I already had 3 cards in that and so didn't get anything separately for this.



But altogether, this is so totally worth $12. All products are really good quality and the choice of extra gift cards makes it more appealing too. So whats your choice? The Custom Starbox or the LooksBook... Check out more details or subscribe your own box with this link: Starlooks

Note
I received one or more of the products in my reviews for free/in discount. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my followers/reader/friends.

  2. This looks like an amazing box. I actually was just looking at this box a couple of days ago and I must admit your posting as pushed me over that wall to buy. I need to start finding great makeup for the fall season and this would be a great way for me to get some. Love that it is only $12!! Great review and pictures.
