I received the October Starbox which included a gorgeous purple pigment eyeshadow in a color called Posh (SRP $12), a moisture rich lipstick in a shade called masquerade which is a deep red with a bit of orange shimmer (SRP $11), and an eyeliner pencil in gold called golden dust (SRP $8). As an extra bonus, I also included an Eye Rock eye tattoo which will be fun to play with for Halloween. Each box also includes several slivers of quartz that I have started collecting to display. You can see that the retail of these products makes this monthly Starbox well worth the $15 fee. You do not get to choose the products you want and they are not personalized to your skin tone or coloring. Their site says that they choose colors that will be suitable for everyone.
The Starlooks brand is not one I had any experience with before now. The pigment eyeshadow is absolutely amazing. The color is vibrant. It applies easily and smoothly and definitely lasts a long time. I found it easy to apply both on my lid and below my bottom lashes. A very little bit goes a long way. The gold eyeliner is perfect for lining your waterline since it contains no glitter. I used it under my eyes along with some of the purple pigment eyeshadow. Very smooth and easy to apply. The moisture rich lipstick was a bit of a challenge since I never wear red or orange. What I did to make it work for me was to apply a clear gloss to my lips and then use a lip brush to brush on only the tiniest bit of the lipstick for color. Applying a clear gloss to my lips toned down the color quite a bit so I could pull it off.
This is the look I got using the products from the October Starbox:
I really love that Starbox lets me play with colors and shades I might not normally try. This is a really fun way to step out of your comfort zone once a month and experiment with something new. I got tons of compliments on this look when I did it and I wouldn't have normally have gone this bright.
