October Starlooks Starbox...and a giveaway!

October Starbox
*Scroll down to the bottom to find out about the Starbox giveaway!* This month's Starbox was all about a masquerade, a "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" theme. But before I get to that...

December Starbox sneak peek 

Apparently, in the December Starbox there is going to be one of their 15-shade palettes (valued at $99). Pretty darn cool. I've been on a bit of a palette kick, so this will be an awesome Christmas treat!

Back to this month's box.

What's inside the box
Gold Dust eyeliner
The "See No Evil" is represented by this lovely gold eyeliner pencil. (retail $8.00). This is probably the best item for me in the box, because when I was a teenager, I bought a gold liner and I really loved how the colour emphasized my eyes and made them pop. I haven't used this colour for ages, and it never made it on  my to-buy beauty list for some reason (nowadays I usually use black, brown, grey liner), so I'm thrilled that it ended up in my Starbox.

"Posh" Eye Shadow pigment
This is a loose shadow pigment in the colour "Posh" (a deep purple - retails for $12.00). You really only need a little bit, as it is quite a vibrant shade. This represents "Hear no Evil" as it says on the card, "Will instigate covetous whispers from those who are jealous of your beautiful gaze". It's a lovely rich shade, and there's quite a lot of pigment in the container.

Masquerade Lipstick
The "Speak no Evil" is represented by this coppery Masquerade lipstick (retails for $11.00). It's a creamy lipstick, and initially I wasn't too sure about the colour, but I think it looks pretty nice on!

Not bad!
Swatches of the liner, shadow and lipstick
Eye Rock tattoos and quartz crystal
Along with their signature quartz crystal, Starlooks included a pair of eye tattoos, that were to be used to "enhance your Halloween image". I got this box after Halloween, so didn't get a chance to wear them, but I did see some girls try these out and post pics on their facebook group, and they looked quite funky! So I'll put these in the costume box and hopefully try 'em out next year.

Overall, another good Starbox. I've already tried out all the items, and the shadow and liner do last for ages; if you use eye primer it helps prevent creases I find.

And now for the giveaway! A bit of a backstory: My Starbox hadn't come in the mail so I rechecked my shipping notification, and realized that part of my address was left off. I phoned Starlooks to tell them about the error and they said they would just ship out another box as it looked like the address error was a glitch on their end. They were very nice and said it was no trouble at all. Well, someone at Canada Post put their thinking cap on and figured out my address from the missing info, so the first box was actually delivered to me! So now I have a second October Starbox and the giveaway is for this box. If you've been wondering about this beauty sub and want to try a box for yourself, enter my giveaway via rafflecopter. So far I've found it to be a fantastic service with really great customer service.

Giveaway closes Nov. 20/12. Open worldwide!
