February Starbox

No comments :
This month was my first month of subscribing to the Starbox service. As a reviewer for the past few months, I'm going to continue to review a seperate product for you guys, sent to me from Starlooks each month. I will include it at the end of these posts so you will know which one is which! This month's box was a special edition Lauren Clark box. It's pink and has purple lettering/detail.

Inside we have the information card for the February box, along with a little pamphlet about Lauren.

Pretty purple tissue paper, and 4 products!

First is a lip pencil in Tipsy, a bright coral-pink. It is a smooth formula that glides on nicely. It has good staying power, lasting hours on my lips. This is the PERFECT liner to use with MAC's Viva Glam Nicki lipstick (the first one, not the lavender one that just came out!)

 Here is a close up of the pencil with a swatch.

Next is an eye liner in Princess Diaries. It is a shimmery light pink cream liner in a glass pot. While this color is really pretty, I don't think it shows up well as an eye liner (I like my black liner!) It does, however, make a perfect shadow base for light, shimmery looks. It is quite pigmented, just a very light color! It glides on smooth and blends out nicely. Retails for $15.

Next is a Lip Gloss in Pink Oasis. It's not a pigmented purply shade like it looks to be, but is very pretty on the lips. I would say these are comparable to MAC Dazzleglasses in terms of glitter, but they are not sticky at all like the MAC ones are. They last a few hours before needing to re-apply. Has only a slight pleasant scent, you can't really tell once it's on your lips that it even has a scent. Retails for $15.

It also has a doe-foot applicator.

Last, we have a really exciting product. This is called their HD Fluid Blush in the color Barbie. I wouldn't call it a fluid, it's more of a squeezable cream blush. It's a very thick formula and CRAZY pigmented. It is so pigmented that you only need the tiniest bit - as awesome as that is, it can also be a downfall because you have to be very very careful in your application so that you don't look like a clown. I keep calling this the "lip tar for your face!" And it is such a pretty bubblegum pink. It blends out nicely and looks like a matte powder when it sets. You can set it with a powder blush to keep it from transferring, as I noticed when I touched my face a bit would come off on my finger. You can dust a highlighter over it if you prefer a shimmery blush, or dust your face powder over it to tone it down a little bit if you find you've used too much. It is a very versatile product! Retails for $15.

Now, the product I received for free to review was another one of their brushes, which I was super excited about because I love the last one I got so much.
 It is the Small Precision Brush #813. Just like the last brush I reviewed, the bristles are super soft. This is the perfect size to put shadow in your crease/detail a cut crease/put shadow in your outer corner. It is a small rounded tip with densely packed bristles and I love it!

I hope you guys enjoyed the review! As always, you can sign up for your Starbox at starlooks.com and tell them you heard about it from my blog! :)
