Starbox is a monthly subscription service that provides you with the opportunity to try the entire Starlooks, Pro-Quality Makeup Line at an exclusive, discounted price! Every month, a box will be delivered to your door filled with 3-4 FULL SIZED pieces of STARLOOKS BRAND MAKEUP (plus some fun, little extras). Every box will include a different mix of product types including colors, styles, formulas, etc.

Starlooks is a PRO quality makeup line, comparable to Makeup Forever, Sephora, M.A.C, Chanel, Dior, and other department store brands at which you would normally have to pay hundreds of dollars for just 3-4 FULL SIZE products. The value of the content you receive in your Starbox each month ranges from $35.00 – $99.00, and we give it to you for just $15.00 per month + shipping.

In my box that I received above I received the following items:

– Fashion Lashed Professional  Style #13

– Longwear Eyeliner Pots in Orion

-Tendergloss in Puzzy

-Lipgloss in Pearl Necklace

– A travel size emery board

The color combo of the lipstick and gloss was great. Very fresh and sheer, perfect for the transition into the Spring season. The eyelashes are of the same quality I have used and seen with MAC and are full.

The eyeliner is teal colored and a great accent for brown colored eyes, but if done in moderation can work with most any color eye.

My overall review of the products is that it’s a great selection of full size products that are comparable to other PRO quality makeup companies. For the price it can’t be beat, at $15/month you are getting a steal on these products. I’m my words definitely worth a try.

Wonderful Fans! Please ONLY use this link when subscribing to Starbox, so you can support my reviews and my blog.

Enjoy!!

BeautyBox 5 – January Review

1624498_10100165814224209_786140812_n

Next review I was given was from BeautyBox5. For those unfamiliar with the company, BeautyBox5 is a subscription based beauty sampling program that send 5 cosmetic samples to your door monthly. It is geared to helping introduce women to new cosmetic products and educating them as well. The products vary monthly and are based on best products for your lifestyle.

Memberships perks for being a monthly BeautyBox5 subscriber is:

All members receive FREE shipping, & receive exclusive discounts from their partner brands.

In my monthly subscription box, I received the following items:

  • NYX Cosmetics Love in Rio Eyeshadow Palette
  • Body Drench Daily Moisturizing Lotion
  • Ofra Cosmetics Sultry Lipgloss Plumper
  • Clean & Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer
  • Every Beauty Flexible Foot Smoother

 

The products themselves value at over $40, however the subscription is only $12/monthly.

There is also the option to subscribe quarterly for $30 (save $6), or yearly for $99 (save $45). Plus with each subscription you receive a bonus gift card to Soap.com

One of the products I absolutely loved, was the Flexible Foot Smoother. It reminded me of a dish sponge in shape, and a pumice stone used for pedicures. This time of year in the Northeast the winter weather can dry out your skin and this item can be used not only on your feet, but on dry patches of skin on your body. Great to exfoliate the dry skin so that the Body Drench lotion that was included can absorb.

The Clean and Clear Gel Moisturizer was very different from the normal moisturizer I have used and seen. This gel based one is lightweight, fresh smelling and great for those of us with oil/acne prone skin. Pleasantly surprised on the product.

The NYX Eyeshadow palette is and nice neutral. With the trio of colors you can make a great day time or evening look, especially with  the two-sided applicator to do fine work. The plumping lip gloss pair perfect with the eyeshadow palette. The berry color is perfect this time of year, helping accentuate your lips.

Overall I loved the BeautyBox5 and think it’s a great option for women to try out new products with the season, and for the price it totally worth it.

Happy Pampering!!
