Starlooks Starbox: January Edition

Since the December Starbox came early, I was going through a bit of Starbox withdrawal waiting ever so patiently for my January box to arrive. The spoilers on Facebook did not help! But now it's here...time to see what the first box of the new year brought!

Pretty light green box this month

Oooh! I'm liking!
Eyeliners in "fancy" (top) and "brown" (bottom)
Close up of liners
The two eyeliners that Starlooks included this month both retail for $8 - the "fancy" liner is touted as "ultra-smooth" and it really is, very creamy and makes a perfect line the first time.

Swatches of "fancy" and "brown"
So pretty! They also say you can use both as a shadow base, or combine the two liners to create an olive colour...

858 dome brush

Also included is a dome brush for blending shadow/liner into a smoky eye - made from cruelty-free pony hair. I'm liking this brush as it should be excellent for blending with it's short, soft bristles. Retails for $15.

"Cuty Peach" blush

This blush (retails for $12) in the colour "cuty peach" (shouldn't it be cutie peach?) is a soft pinky, peach, that has excellent pigmentation on skin.

Just gorgeous!

And last, a fun bonus...

beaded bracelet from Abby Rose Designs
oh so lovely!
This is such a cute bracelet (retails for $15) and I think it colour-matches the theme of this box really well! These bracelets are also available for purchase on the Starlooks website for the month of February.

I honestly really love this box. A great selection of very fun, wearable and versatile full-sized items plus a sweet bonus bracelet...Starlooks continues to impress!

If this month's box has got you thinking "I've gotta get on the Starbox bandwagon"...it's $15 month plus shipping (for Canadians this means it's usually around $20/month). If you're in the U.S. you can sign up via their website, all international Starbox orders must be placed through email or phone.

What do you think of the January Starbox?

    1. I don't know of a coupon code for Starlooks, unfortunately, but they are definitely worth every penny (can't say the same for some other beauty boxes!)
