Review: Starlooks Haul

I have been meaning to try out the Starlooks products for quite some time now. They have a monthly subscription box and the blog reviews I've seen for them are all just fantastic. However, I wanted to try out their products before I signed up for the box, just to make sure they lived up to the hype. Lucky for me,
Starlooks partnered with Ipsy in June, so we got an awesome discount of 35% off all products on their website. Perfect opportunity!

You can actually purchase past Starlooks monthly boxes (if they're still available...looks like most of them sell out pretty quickly!), so I bought the January box. I also purchased the 'Signature Turquoise' set because, well, it was too pretty not to! :) 

I was panicking a little because my tracking hadn't updated in several days, but it turns out the tracking number was a little funky because the package showed up today unexpectedly. YAY!

Here's the haul!

Signature Turquoise Set: 'Deja Vu' Gem Pencil + 'Real Turquoise' Eye Shadow Compact. $18. 

Gem Pencil in Deja Vu

Eye Shadow Compact in Real Turquoise

Swatches. HOW PRETTY ARE BOTH OF THESE! The turquoise is a little brighter than what I normally wear, but I will find a way to make it work. This is just one swipe with my finger, so it's pretty pigmented & definitely could be built up to achieve a more vibrant color. And that gem pencil...oh my gosh it's gorgeous! Perfect for some extra shimmer 

January Starbox. The website said the past boxes may come packaged differently than the original boxes, but might came just like a normal subscription box. 

First look!

Item descriptions. 

Inside the box. :) 

This particular box included this bracelet by Abby Rose Designs. Not really my style but green IS my favorite color, so I'm sure I'll find something to wear it with!

Blush in 'Cutie Peach'

Eye Liner Pencil in 'Brown' & Gem Liner Pencil in 'Fancy'

Soft Small Dome Fluff Brush (that's a mouthful!)

Swatches. Again...SO pretty. I tend to always lean towards the peachier side when I pick out blushes, so this is absolutely perfect for me. The brown liner does NOT have sparkles..just still had some on my skin from the first swatches. I've actually never owned a brown liner, so I'm curious to try this & see if maybe it looks a little less intense than black. Aaaand that gem liner! Again, just gorgeous. Probably going to take advantage of the discount & buy a few more of those. 

If you're interested in trying out any Starlooks products the code IPSY is valid until July 15th & will give you 35% off all products (does not apply to Starbox subscriptions). 

Also, if you're interested in signing up for the Starbox, you can do so on their website. It's $15 + shipping for 3-4 Starlooks products each month. If you sign up before the 10th, you will receive July's box, which ships during the 3rd & 4th weeks of the month. 


  1. I bought the Turquoise Set as well and I LOVE it....darn you girl, showing me the FABULOUS swatches of the January box! LOL Now I want it! XD

    1. I'm not even going to try to talk you out of it...I love it too much! :)

  2. I want the turquoise set :) The january box was one of my favorites I've gotten...I still use both of those liners, the blush, and the brush all the time!!

    1. Yeah, I was excited that it was still in stock! It's the one I really wanted & one of the only past boxes still left.

      Go for the turquoise set. With the IPSY discount code, it's a steal at less than 12 bucks. :)

  3. Great haul! Those gem liners look amazing! I've been so tempted to buy the turquoise set and I think you're swatches have made up my mind! lol Thanks for sharing. :)

      The gem liners ARE amazing! I'm definitely going to be picking up a few more of them before the 35% discount expires. :)
