April Starbox Review

It's one of my favorite times of the month. Starbox time! Hopefully by now you all know what a Starbox(and subscribe). If not, you are really missing out on something incredible.

Starbox is a Monthly Beauty Subscription Box. Every month you will get a lovely box of amazingly high quality cosmetics. Each box will contain 3-4 FULL SIZE items. Most every beauty box I have tried sends deluxe samples(or even small samples, no thanks).

In addition to just the amazing value of the items and the box, you also get the wonderful novelty of having the surprise factor each month and looking forward to trying new products picked out by Starlooks.

I love it. I have discovered so many things that I would not have purchased for myself but that have become some of my absolute favorites. Not only does it keep the act of using cosmetics exciting for you, but it keeps your look fresh and fun.

April's box was once again fabulous.

This box is packed with 4 amazing products. And what is really wonderful is that they are all Nuetrals that will compliment everyone.

These really are essentials that anyone and everyone should have. They are the basics use to create any look. I love that Starlooks decided to make this Neutral box.

Mineralized Powder(Translucent White):

This powder is incredible. I get shiny way too often. Some other powders hide it decently, and some even control it moderately, but they also make my skin look dry or show dryness.

With this amazing White Translucent powered, it absorbs oil and shine, and is invisible and weightless. It even moisturizes instead of clogging pores or drying skin out.

Plus is is SPF 15 to protect you from the sun. Wear it alone, over liquid foundation or as a finishing powder.

Sensation Mascara Primer:

I have VERY tiny lashes, and small eyes for that matter. Anything that will help my lashes look bigger and make my eyes look wider and more open is a huge asset to me.

This primer works so well. It is not thick or heavy. It is not too gel like or sticky, and it is not messy in the least. It is so easy to use and it works so well.

I used it with the Starlooks Lengthening Mascara that I got in my March Starbox(another great perk of subscribing).

I am so happy with the results.

Tendergloss Lipstick(in Basic):

Tenderglosses are incredible. They are so light and silky. They are practically juice. They are so lusciously sheer and shimmery.

They are so moisturizing and feel remarkable to wear. They not only make your lips look and feel soft while wearing, but it also conditions them even after you take it off.

My lips are very dry much of them time, and with most lipstick it actually accentuates the dry spots and looks really bad, but this just hydrates the dryness and makes it disappear. It's amazing.

This color is GORGEOUS too. I love this. It is so natural and modest, yet feminine and flattering. This color would look fantastic on anyone. Such a perfect shade.

With just these 3 products(plus a mascara of course) you can create a very beautiful, natural, polished look. I tend to gravity more toward natural looks, so I really love how this look.

What do you think?

Please excuse the hair. Since this is a "natural" look, I decided to keep my "mom Hair" to show how well these products dress up a dressed down look.

This is only the Translucent White Powder(no foundation), Mascara Primer and Lengthening Mascara, and Basic Tendergloss. Only four simple items, and I think this is actually one of my favorite looks ever.

And these are not even everything you get in the April Box, you also get a bonus.

Mint SPF Lip Balm:.

This not only makes lips ultra moisturizes and smooth, but it also smells and tastes like minty heaven.

The grand total value for all 4 items is a whopping $50! How much does it cost to subscribe to Starbox? Only $15 plus(under $3) shipping. Is that incredible or what?

How could any woman pass up on such an incredible value? This is a steal considering these products are such high quality that they even far exceed their retail price.

With Mother's Day coming up in less than 2 weeks, if you have not gotten your mom a gift yet, there is no time to waste. A gift subscription to Starbox would make the PERFECT gift.

If do want to give your mom the gift that keeps on giving with Starbox, you'd better act fast. The deadline for each month is the first, any order placed after that will begin the following month. Get your mom the gift of perpetual beauty. I know that it will be a huge hit.
