Starlooks Cosmetics Review

I was recently asked by Starlooks if I would be interested in reviewing some samples, and I eagerly said yes because I've heard a lot of good things about their Starboxes and cosmetics in general.  I also knew that they were a cruelty-free brand.  I was expecting a few small samples, but to my surprise, they sent me a full Starbox!

I received the May Starbox, which is obviously an old box, but I didn't mind because it had some really great items in it.  The Starlooks Starbox costs $15 a month and contains only Starlooks products, so if you're someone who likes a variety of brands this might not seem like a good fit for you.  I urge you to try it anyway, though, because even though it's all the same brand the variety of cosmetics seems really great!

This box contained thee products, with a bonus mini nail file in a cute zebra print.  When I first opened the box I noticed the crystal, and I thought, "What's this?  A crystal?"  I guess they include one in every box, because my informational card said: "And, as always, you received a crystal.  Add this ultimate symbol of energy and beauty to your brush jar or share your creative use ideas with us..."

Pigment Luster swatch

  • Eyebrow Shader Compact (BS443), $21 - This compact is perfect for me because I'm a victim of over-plucking my eyebrows.  I thinned them out to much at the ends, and I'm convinced that they're never going to fully grow back in.  I was using an eyebrow pencil prior to this, but this works really well to shade in the sparse areas and came with the perfect little brush to do so.  I use the dark brown shade, because even though I have black hair the black shade is just too dark.
  • Pigment Luster in Cinnamon Toss, $17 - This pigment is gorgeous!  It's the perfect shimmery brown and I absolutely love it.  I'm going to work it into my everyday eye look as a shadow along my crease.
  • Cream Blush in Emphasize, $17 - This blush looked too dark for me at first, and the informational card even noted that.  But they promised that, when applied, it would add a natural hue to any skin tone.  They were right, because I found that this blended beautifully and gave me just enough definition.

Bottom Line: I had a really great time trying these Starlooks products and it was a pleasant surprise to receive a Starbox!  My favorite was the Pigment Luster, but all three of them are products that I'll definitely use in my daily routine.  I think the Starbox is a great deal, and Starlooks products are a fantastic cruelty-free option!  One small note, these products do contain parabens.
