August Starlooks Box

Hey ladies, I just wanted to share with you the August Starlooks box.  Are you getting one yet?  If not check out the link to the right under "My Subscriptions."  It's a little bit different than other sample boxes in that you don't get samples.  You receive full size items for Starlooks, which is it's own cosmetic brand.  I believe the subscription is $15 US a month.

This month was a signature box by Lauren Bradley.  It was a little bigger than last month.  Lauren Bradley is a designer that's designed for people like Heidi Klum, Regina Spektor and Chris Martin.

Inside there was this envelope that was wrapped in gold string and stamped with a wax seal.

Oooh..isn't that pretty.  I was curious as to what was inside.

A photograph of Lauren Bradley... this kinda umm took me by surprise.

Ohh look a designer to the stars signed it.  That's kind of neat, right?

The first item was a bit controversial.  It's a pointed slant eyeliner brush.  Personally, I'm super happy to get this!  I looove eyeliner brushes.  They make anyone an expert!  It's described as an ultra fine, precise, liner brush that creates the most perfect line for the top of the eyelid..  It is 100% synthetic, Japanese, Nylon hair. Retail value is $15.

I love that they print right on the brush what the brush is.  Sometimes when you have a ton of brushes it's hard to tell!

I hope you can tell from this picture how nice and angled the bristles are.  They are incredibly soft.

The next item was in this box: Hmm...what could it be!

Oooh, an infinity liner to go with the brush! Yay!!! I love gel liners.  They are my favourite kind.  The colour is sculpture. It looks a bit bronzey in this picture, but it's actually a dark grey with gold flecks.  It gives it almost an olive appearance. Starlooks describes the colour as illuminating, creamy, youthful, smokey, neutral charcoal. I can't wait to try it!! Retail value is $9.

I put it in my hand, so you can see it's a nice size!

As you can see there is quite a bit of product in there.

Finally, was a lipgloss.  Which is one of my favourite products.

As you can see on the side of the packaging, all their packaging is made from recycled paper and their products are cruelty free.

This is the lipgloss inside.  At first glance it looks pretty bold. It's a pink with purpley shimmer inside. The colour is pink petal rose. They compare the feel of it to Chanel.  I don't know what Chanel gloss feels like but this is a non sticky creamy formula.  I really like it.  It's a sheer raspberry pink colour.  It has a bit of pearl and a glassy shiny finish.  The only downside for me, is I find I need to use a lot of product and/or the tube limits how much you can take out at one time. Retail value is $11.

It's got the standard doe foot applicator.  Hopefully, you can see this is a really pretty colour.

This is the whole box. Retail value $35 for the box. A rather large box for the product, but maybe because they wanted to fit the autograph in there.  As you can see in the top left, there is a crystal...which is a signature in their boxes.

There you have it! I really enjoyed this box!  What do you think?

Have a lovely weekend!! I promise the draw is coming soon!!! :)



  1. You've convinced me to give this box a try! I am excited for an all-makeup box. I'm set to get the September box - used your name as a referral :)

    1. I'm glad you subbed, it's a really great one to get, I always look forward to it! Thank you! :)

  2. Not a bad box! I find it interesting but so far I find the risk high since it's only 3 products and I don't wear much makeup. I'm afraid 2 or even 3 products might be things I wouldn't use... Maybe after I get tired of sample boxes I'll migrate to this one. I'm definitely very interested and will continue checking in to see what they send each month! Thanks for sharing!

    1. I understand where you're coming from, totally. The value is definitely there and so far I've been pretty happy. Just keep watching, I'll be posting them all and hopefully it will give you a good idea of what you could expect!

  3. Hmmm, I may have to check this out too!! I see you stopped by my blog and I couldn't resist stopping by yours! I have yet to do my Loosebutton review, when we get so many beauty box memberships it's tough to give them all the time they deserve!


    1. Thanks so much for coming by! I totally agree with you, it's hard to keep up and work full time as well! I'll be waiting to see your review. This is a great box, please use my name as a referral if you decide to go for it! Thank you!
