December Starbox

No comments :
Here is my review on the December Starbox from! Again I will mention this was sent to me for free for review purposes.

The box itself is red this time - perfect for the holidays!

Inside, there is the December Starbox card and some festive glitter...

Inside this months box was one of their 15 shade pro palettes which retails for $99! That is a great steal considering the monthly subscription is $15. The palette itself came in a black box with holes so you could get a sneak peek at the colors...

And here's a better look at the shadows. These colors were chosen because they were inspired by Christmas lights! I believe there were several variations of palettes sent out in the boxes.

Here are swatches of the first 2 columns with flash

And here they are without flash

And finally, the last column with flash

The shadows have amazing pigmentation, especially the last column of gold colors. In these swatch photos I did not use any bases so that you can see their true colors as is, without help from a primer or base! The colors in this holiday palette are not available as single shadows on the starlooks site. I should also mention that unlike the shadows from last month's eyeshadow quad, these do not pop out/fall out! This palette is more heavy duty and the shadows are stuck in there. It would be cool if they were magnetic and interchangeable, in case you wanted to swap them out for other Starlooks shadows to kind of create-your-own custom palette, but all in all I think this one has a great range of colors, and it has a good selection of mattes and shimmers.

I hope you all enjoyed this review and if any of you decide to sign up for a monthly Starbox, I would really appreciate it if you tell them I sent ya! You can also check out the video I filmed for the December Starbox as well:
