Starlooks - December Edition

Ahhh..the long anticipated December Starbox from Starlooks!! Starlooks is my favourite subscription, absolute favourite! We all knew what was coming in this one and it was super exciting!  Starlooks had leaked that everyone would be getting a 15 shade palette worth $99 in December!! Wow.  How can a company get any more generous?!  Even with that, there were complaints that they didn't send the 3-4 items they were promised and that calling this palette 15 items is a cop out!  You have GOT to be kidding me!  We pay $15 plus shipping and we received this amazing gift! I am so truly grateful to be a part of this subscription service!!

Every month, the box looks a little different.  December was hot pink!  See the little elastic ribbon?  It's perfect for keeping the little hairs out of your face. I wore it around the house on a lazy Sunday with my hair in a french twist and it didn't budge once! 

For a referral, you get sent a cosmetic bag from Starlooks.  Now, I know the bag isn't the most exciting thing, but I think this is the perfect kind of bag to carry in your purse.  I know I'm forever digging to the bottom of my makeup bag to try and find what I need...usually elusive nail trimmers and chapsticks!

When you open the box, you are greeted with this plasticky glitter.  Yes, it was a little messy, but it felt so fun to open... it truly felt like a gift!  I wouldn't want that every month, but for December...heck yes! It cleaned up relatively easy!

This is what the front of the card looks like.  I believe this is the same model that won the face of Starlooks. Her name is Johnnie.

Here is the product card.  It says that you cannot buy these colours individually and this is the only palette you will find them in.  You can read on the card here why the colours were chosen this way for this particular palette.

And, behold the gorgeous pro palette!! It came in a box like this.  So cute and enticing!  You can see the SL logo popping out strategically!

When you pull the sleeve off, this is how the case looks.

Behold, the glorious colours.  They are truly amazing!!! They are so incredibly usable.  As a point of interest...blue eyeshadow looks great with green eyes. ;)  This will be so fun to play with and experiment! As a note to you Canadian ladies.  Each of these pans is about the size of a toonie. It's very generous!

Here are some closeups of the first 6 colours.  My favourite in the first row is the bottom colour and my favourite in the second row is the top colour.

The next set of colours are the blues and greens.  I know it's hard to tell, but the bottom left one is actually a perriwinkle almost purpley colour. The first row, the bottom colour is my favourite and the second row the middle colour is my favourite.

Here are the last 3 colours in the palette.  Don't you just love the shimmer?  The bottom one is my favourite!

There you have the amazing December palette.  Did you miss out on this and would love it?  There are still some previous December Starboxes left and you can get your very own HERE for $25!!  That's 75% off!!

Did you get this palette, what did you think?  If you haven't tried Starlooks yet..give it a try.  It's an amazing subscription, totally worth the money as you're getting high quality makeup from an up and coming company!!  If you try Starlooks, let them know Aleksandra Sokal sent you!  :)  I don't get anything for referring you but satisfaction! :)

Have a wonderful night!

  2. I got the slightly different palette (similar colors, but different shades...) and I love it! Loving Starlooks so much, it's probably my favorite sub.

  3. I haven't used the palette yet but I am so loving the November one. I got a similiar palette with a slight difference in the shades. This is a fantastic company and I do agree they were very generous with this. I can't wait to try more products from them.

    1. Yes, they really are. They may appear a little scary in the palette but when you break it down they're all very useable!
