I have some new Starlooks stuff to review for you guys today! If you remember, a while back I reviewed a few of their boxes. Well soon I will be doing the monthly boxes again, so to kind of get you re-acquainted with the brand, they sent me a couple products to review first.
First we have a lip pencil in Roseate. It is a nice nudey-pink.
I have used their liners before, and really like them. They are the type that just look like a pencil and you have to sharpen them, but unlike most kinds like this, they aren't super dry. They're nice and creamy and apply smoothly.
The color is a very good staple nude to have in your collection - it works with so many different shades! I actually like using it with lighter nudes, because it helps give depth to your lips when you line them with this and use a lighter shade. I also really enjoy that it helps keep my lipstick on longer, especially when I'm wearing ones that need a little extra help in the staying power department, like creamier formulas and anything that's not labeled as "long lasting!"
The other product I have here is their Cream Blush in Fallen Angel. I LOVE this!!
I would say this is more of a highlighter than a blush, but that doesn't matter to me because I am highlighter-obsessed. The packaging is plain and see-through, which helps with storage because you can see the color right through the lid.
This is a peachy rose gold shade, and is so pretty and shimmery on the cheeks. It is a cream, but a drier textured cream, which I love. It reminds me a lot of the texture of the Becca Poured Shimmering Skin Perfector that I recently bought and have been loving. It's perfect for oily skinned people, because it stays put without wanting to melt off halfway through the day.
On the left is a heavier swatch, on the right it is blended out. You can get the most pigmentation by applying with your fingers, but I like to gradually build up the intensity with it when I apply by using a stippling brush. I am pretty fair and it works great as a highlighter for me - if you use it heavy it could work as a blush, but the more you put on, the more shimmer you get, so I don't think it would look great on everyone as a blush. That's why I have been putting it on my cheekbones and absolutely loving the look of it!
