Starlooks - Looksbook September 2015 - Revival Edition Review


              I received my September Starlooks Looksbook last week & I have been playing around with it for the past couple of days. I'm in so love with the concept of the LooksBook subscriptions. 




If you haven't read my previous review of Starlooks Looksbook for the Resort Edition, then let me give a short gist. Every month, LooksBook has a theme and they try to match the products with the theme. We get about 3 products in a keepsake travel-size book. This month theme - Revival, made me remember of hot jungle nights.
Below are the 3 products from the Revival Looksbook:

Rawr Lipstick -- A bold, soft creamy matte pink shade. But it might need a dash of lip balm beneath else may end up looking a bit dry.


* Agave Eye Shadow duo -- This is a mini matte eyeshadow duo of Revival. It features a red agave & green agave shade. Starlooks recommend the green in the inner corner & red on the outer.

* Flora Mascara-- A mascara mini in a dark teal, very close to a navy-looking shade. You cant really see in the picture but it sure makes a good color for eyes. The only disadvantage I found with this is that its a bit dry and may not last couple of uses. It could be just my piece as I've seen raving reviews about this.










As I explained in my previous review of the Resort Edition, there is a tips booklet giving you a look to recreate from the products. You can apply the eyeshadow as suggested and come out with a soft smoky eye. But remember, the colors look a tad different on different skin tones. I felt the lip color also did not exactly match the tipsbook. Mine was more pink in color after applied. But I loved all the products.




These are not yet available separately in the Starlooks website, but you can purchase the past Looksbooks too. Definitely the products altogther are more worth than $12.  Check out more details about Starlooks 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.

  7. The products look nice on you. I liked the colors from the Revival Edition as well. I am wondering about the lipstick on you. Were you wearing a lip balm or lip moisturizer that has a lot of shine or that has a slick look to it. It seems like this is what you were dealing. The lipstick I received had a creamy matte finish to it not the glossy look yours did. When I wear matte lip color I will blot my lips with a tissue if I am wearing a lip moisturizer so the emollients and oils do not interfere with color and finish. They will change the lip color.
