Starlooks March box - Review and Product pictures

Recently I received the Starlooks March Starbox. I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised by the quantity and quality of the products. All products included were full sized. Click here for website!


Here is a close up of the four products that came with this box.

Disarray eyeshadow is a matte navy blue eyeshadow. With one application of the colour you may not get the best pigmentation, however, after layering you can get a pretty strong navy blue smokey eye. I use it as an eyeliner as well. Perfect for those days where black is just plain boring.


The lipstick 'Flutter' is very pigmented and vibrant. It leans more towards the frosty side. I think this is a lipstick version of NARS Taj Mahal blush. Beautiful burnt orange shade.


The lengthening mascara does what is should. The wand is just the right size for my eyes. The formula of this mascara is very nice as it does not clump nor does it make my lashes look like spider legs. It also comes off easily when removing makeup.


The Vanilla lip sugar is great for exfoliating dry chapped lips. It smells great and leaves the lips smooth and smooch-able. Lovely product to prepare lips for lipstick application.


This is the look I came up with using the above items (less the vanilla lip sugar) from the Starbox ''smokey navy blue eyes with orange lips''. I even used the lipstick on my cheeks as a blush.






Likes
- You can try the entire makeup line by subscribing to Starbox at USD$15.00.
- With the Starbox you get 3-4 full sized products.
- All the items included were very usable and wearable, even for a brown lady like me.
- When the Starbox came in the mail, none of the items were broken or defected. All items were nicely packed.

Dislikes
- None so far

Overall
I think it is worth subscribing to Starbox from Starlooks because you get full sized products to try. From what I understand all the items are hand picked to ensure that they suit a wide range of skin tones. So in other words, if you are a woman of colour, you might find the makeup items very usable. If you are a beginner in makeup and do not know how to use the items that come with the Starbox, you can visit their Youtube Channel (Click Here) to learn from their tutorials. Starlooks cosmetics are cruelty free (which I think is great!). The items that come in the Starbox vary from month to month so you will get to try something new every time.

Hope you found this review useful. What is your favourite product from Starlooks.com?
