REVIEW: Starlooks August 2013

This month's Starlooks box was a special edition that was curated by Natalie Corona, also known as SparklicityNo.6 on YouTube!

A little about Natalie...

"Natalie's love for makeup and fashion started as a teen, always playing with new products and trying the latest trends! Now she is a stay at home mom living in California who loves makeup and fashion! She created her YouTube channel about three years ago to connect with other makeup enthusiasts like herself and share her makeup favorites and failures through videos!

'The full size Starlooks products I receive every month have been some of my makeup must haves! I'm so excited to share my signature products and hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Connect with me and see how I use these and other Starlooks products on my YouTube channel SparklicityNo.6.' - Natalie Corona

From her sneak peek video, it looks like the theme for this month was MERMAIDS. Super exciting. Let's take a look at the box!

First of all, the box was adorable. Blue with super shimmery silver writing! Saved in my 'box' stash for makeup storage immediately, of course. 

A first look inside. A few of the photos from this months LooksBook!

A little information on this month's products, and a little information on Starlooks' program! :)

This month, every StarBox included a prism as an extra. It looks like they varied quite a bit in shape and color. There's a small hole near the top for hanging, or whatever you decide to do with yours! I'm thinking about putting mine on my keys.

Ok, getting into the good stuff now! Here's a look at the products from this month inside the packaging. 

And voila! Look what we have here. Glitter Glam in 'Emerald' and Infinity Lip Colors in Eons & Endless.

Glitter Glam in 'Emerald.' With an intense sparkle, Starlooks' Glitter Glam is the perfect way to add even more 'bling' to any look! Try additing it to a loose powder, any eyeshadow, or even nail polish to easily create a one-of-akind look. No longer just a fantasy - with this product, you can finally add the 'Glisten of a Mermaid's Tail' effect to any makeup application! Available in nine stunning shades encompassing every reflective color of the spectrum! (Starlooks Retail: $17)

Infinity Lipsticks in "Eons" & "Endless." This kissable lipstick comes in various matte and frost finishes and provides up to 12 hours of wear without re-application! Most longwear lipsticks tend to dry out the lips, but Starlooks Infinity Lipstick stays moisturizing and smooth all day! And, because of the durable polymer added to the formula, it won't feather or bleed beyond your lip liner. Great for a bright, vibrant wear that won't budge! Dar to wear to the pool, the beach, or any water related activity - it's completely waterproof! (Starlooks Retail: $15)

Infinity Lipstick in "Endless." This is sort of a shimmy peachy with a satin finish. Goes on fairly sheer (see swatches below!). 

Infinity Lipstick in "Eons." A matte rose pink. 

SWATCHES! Infinity Lipsticks in Endless & Eons. Glitter Glam in Emerald. 

 I've been on a lip product kick lately, so I was psyched about getting two lipsticks. I especially love Eons! I thought the 'Glitter Glam' would be more of a shimmy eye shadow pigment, rather than just straight up glitter, but I like the ideas on the product information card and I think I'll try adding it to a nail polish or a teal eye shadow!

What did you all think of this month's Starbox? And, more importantly, what are you doing with your prism??
