I’ve been receiving the Starbox monthly subscription from Starlooks for a few months now, and despite my initial hesitation (I pretty much bought the first subscription because it featured a band I like), I was super impressed with the makeup that arrived, and I’ve been pretty loyally using the makeup that arrives each month as I go along.
(For reference, my favorite thing to arrive so far has been the blush palette from August 2014’s box. I use it probably 4 days a week in varying combinations. The eyeshadow from July 2014 has also been excellent, though that’s more of a night-out thing for me.)
This month’s box contained four items:
- Kohl Eye Pencil in Oracle
- Lip Pencil in Roseate
- STARLOOKS Lashes
- Single Shadow Compact in Tan Glow
Typically, my main focus for makeup is definitely around my eyes — I love having fun colors around my eyes, and I also like to give my eyes a little more definition — so I was very excited to see both an eyeliner and a shadow in this month’s box. The first Starbox I received, the July 2014 box, had the eyeliner pencil and single shadow compact in different shades, which I use pretty consistently.
On the other hand, I’ve never used false lashes before, and lip pencils are a little confusing to me. (If I do anything with my lips beyond a layer of lip balm, it’s normally sliding on a coat of lipstick before running to an event.)
Still, I was excited to check out everything in the box. Individual reviews for each item below the jump!
