Starbox Review

 I really love cosmetics. I especially love trying as many different things as I can, because often I find I really like things that are not my normal "go to" items, things I would not normally buy.That is why the idea of monthly beauty boxes is very appealing to me.

The problem with that however, is that out of the many beauty boxes I have tried, I never found one that I wanted to stick with for longer than the first month or two. I came to realize that the sample sized products I was getting was not worth the price(to me).

Don't get me wrong, I am all for samples, but I like my samples free. Or at least worth the price I am paying.

But, I FINALLY found a monthly beauty box that is not only worthy of the very reasonable price tag, it far exceeds it. Starbox is my beauty box hero.

This is my October Starbox. This month the theme is See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak no Evil. The box came with 3 FULL SIZE high end products, PLUS a surprise. At $15 that is a STEAL.

This month's box included:

Eye Shadow Pigment (Posh):

I actually LOVE this! I usually opt for neutrals and bronze type colors for my eye shadow, but I love the way this looks.  I love that you can apply it dark and bold or light and shimmery. The shimmer of this is gorgeous.

Of course the color and shimmer would not matter if the product itself was not up to par, but this pigment is phenomenal. It is so easy to use. Does on super smooth and evenly. It lasts forever without caking or smearing, and is super lightweight and comfortable.  

This is arguably one of the best eye colors I have EVER used. To me, if all I got for the $15 price was this, I'd be super happy.

But... You get way more!

Eye Pencil (Gold Dust):

This is a really great pencil. It glides on effortlessly and accurately. It feels smooth and soft to apply and wear. The color is really true, you can easily build the level of intensity.

This is great as a liner or to wear as a shadow. The color is so pretty. I love that it is rich, not chalky or translucent like others tend to be sometimes. I love the shimmer. It really makes your eyes POP.

This is a really good quality pencil and it shows. Other pencils irritate my eyes sometimes ot are just difficult to use, but this pencil is a winner.

Lipstick (Masquerade):

This lipstick is wonderful. It glides on so smoothly it feels like a lip balm. Very creamy and comfortable to wear. The color is rich, but not too dark or opaque. Just a hint of shimmer and orange tint make this red lip color really stand out. Not your momma's red lipstick, that's for sure. 

Honestly, I do not usually wear red lipstick, but I like this one a lot. It is probably the best one I've used to date. I actually plan to wear this from time to time to mix up my look. That says a lot. Trust me, if this was not a great lipstick, I would never wear red.

And there is STILL MORE!

Bonus Surprise - Eye Tattoos:

These are super awesome. I did not use them yet though. I am saving these to wear on Halloween. I know they will look killer though.

OK, so talk is cheap, right? Well check out how awesome this makeup really is.

I also tried the Eye pigment instead of liner to see how that looked, and I love it that way too.

I cannot recommend Starbox strongly enough. If you love cosmetics, you need to try this box. Get it as a gift for any cosmetic enthusiest in your life.
