It’s so interesting to me to see how far Starlooks Cosmetics has come in the world of online cosmetic companies. I’ve been reviewing the Starbox by Starlooks for a little more than a year. When I first received a subscription box from them it was the only time I’d heard of the brand. Now though I’m finding that the company has come into its own and their products are being carried by many other companies like Ipsy, Glossybox and Wantable. The quality of Starlooks has been admired by these different companies so they are passing their cosmetics on to their subscribers too.
For the last 2 months I’ve reviewed the latest Starbox subscriptions and I’ve been telling you that you wanted the December 2013 box and now I’m here with the palette to show you what you could have ordered (or hopefully will be getting) for $15 plus approximately $3 shipping.
The 15 shade Shadow Palette aka “New Years Eve 2014” is a mix of matte, satin and even a light shimmer. The shadows in it are suited for all skintones. Mostly this palette has warm tones but there’s a surprise or two inside with some cool colors too.
Here’s my interpretation of the colors:
Silver metallic, magenta matte, green satin(that’s not quite emerald), purple toned brown matte, black matte
Row 2: Cement matte, creamy white satin, brown with a purple undertone satin, dark golden brown with light shimmer, blackish purple
Tan matte, cream matte, midtone golden brown with light shimmer that’s almost a metallic, khaki satin, chocolate with visible shimmer
The eyeshadows in the palette have great pigmentation and last well with an eyeshadow primer. Several of the colors are going to find a lot of use in my life – In the top row the green; in the second row the cream and two end shades and all of the bottom row except maybe the tan. Out of 15 shadows that means over half are ones I really like. The only shade I probably won’t end up using is the magenta one since it’s too red for my eyes.
You can still order the December Starbox for $21.68 plus shipping. While you are at it I suggest adding on a subscription for at least 3 months. One of the reasons is that Starlooks/Starbox is adding a bonus so that in February 2014 if you have subscribed for 3 months you’ll end up with a free gift with a value of $35. They’ll do this again in May as part of their loyalty program. There’s a lot to love with Starlooks. The subscription isn’t expensive and you’ll always get a lot more than your money’s worth (they are usually worth about $70+).
Take the time to be a Star with Starlooks and Starbox. — Marcia
