August Starlooks Starbox 2013

What is Starlooks Starbox?: Starlooks is a professional beauty and fashion product line. Starbox is their monthly subscription service. It’s $15 (+$2.68 shipping) for full-sized and deluxe sample sized products.

Infinity Lipstick in Eons:  It’s a matte rosy pink, totally my kind of color.  The formula promises 12 hours of wear, in reality it lasted 5-6 hours (which I still consider impressive).  It even leaves behind a slight stain after it wears off.  The formula isn’t drying at all (which is the case with most long-lasting lip products) and doesn’t feel tacky at all on the lips.  I’m a fan on this one.  $15/0.08oz.

Infinity Lipstick in Endless:  When I first looked at this in the tube, I didn’t think I’d like it.  It looked too brown based for my liking, and typically I don’t like frosty finishes.  This has a satin/frost finish, but the frosty sheen is golden so it compliments my warmer skin tone.  $15/0.08oz.

Glitter Glam in Emerald:  This has little emerald-green pigment particles with small flecks of gold and blue iridescent glitter.  The multidimensional reflection is absolutely gorgeous!  It doesn’t have a lot of color pay off, it gives a sheer wash of green.  I patted it over a green eyeshadow because I really wanted to make it pop.  I imagine this would be pretty stunning over black eyeshadow as well.  I’m not a fan of the packaging, the product comes out of a small hole (too small to stick a brush in it) and it’s hard to get leftover product back in there.  I would’ve preferred it to be completely open (like a MAC pigment).  $17/0.07oz.

They also included a “prism” that you’re supposed to look like a mermaid’s tail when it reflects in the light.  It’s kind of an odd addition, seeing as this is a makeup subscription box and not a “knick knack” subscription.  But it’s pink and it sparkles so it makes me happy.

As I mentioned in the previous review, the Starlooks website is still unfinished.  I noticed that when you click on the “ingredient deck” it takes you to the “FAQ” page, where all questions are still left unanswered.

Overall
I’m happy with the contents of the box, two long-lasting lipstick (Eons performing better than Endless) and a pretty glitter emerald pigment.  I’m a little taken aback with their full prices, the lipsticks cost more than MAC (and for less product).  The “prism” was a cute addition, I like it but it’s a little unnecessary.  I’m not blown away by any of the products but I would say these were worth the $15.

Glitter Rating: 3.5 / 5

  1. Ohh wish I would have gotten this box! I was subscribed to them, but then they randomly stopped sending me any boxes. My subscription was supposed to be ongoing so I’m not sure why it suddenly stopped. When I log in it shows I am still subscribed so I probably should call or email them to find out. I let it go a couple months just in case it was a glitch to see what would happen since I haven’t been charged for them. I’ve missed July and August boxes now. I might just let it stay stopped, though I like most of the items I get from them I have an overstock on some makeup products that I just won’t use up any time soon!

    • That’s strange! Why on earth would they unsubscribe you? Let me know what they say, I’d be very interested to know.

  2. The lipsticks look really great on you! I really like the color of the pigment too! :)

  3. The prism is kind of a fun addiction… if for nothing else but a paperweight? The colors you got look amazing on you!

    • That’s what I said when I first saw it! I was like “Oh cool, a fancy paperweight.” Thank you Laura! :)
