Before we hop into the review for September's Looksbook, I quickly want to share with you the items that I purchased using my gift cards from my last Starbox and Looksbook. I had a gift card to the Starlooks website and I noticed that they were selling previous Starboxes! I grabbed one from January 2015 which included a lipstick in Marsala, an eyeliner in Chestnut, an Eye Contour brush, and some Malibu Soapworks Young Coconut Brush Wash.
I had two gift cards to Torrain which is a company that uses recycled feed and cement bags to make wallets and bags. This is a great company and I really recommend that you learn more about them! You will be inspired, I promise! From them, I picked up a Snap Wallet in the color scheme Leaf Green and a 6 Bottle Wine Tote in the scheme Sunset Pink. Their patterns are always changing so be sure to check back frequently!
The last two gift cards I had were to The Laboratory. This website has a very eclectic feel and I think almost everyone could find a couple of pieces that they just have to have! I picked the Stitched and Beaded Babydoll Dress, the Leaf Me Alone Dainty Necklace, and a Sssssnake Ear Cuff in Silver. Everything I got feels really well made and I can't wait to wear all of them! I love the variety on this website!
Now on to the September 2015 LooksBook:
You know how much I loved the Starlooks' Custom Starbox subscription, but they launched their LooksBook Membership which is just as awesome, if not better! This membership includes 3 "Perfect Size" cosmetics (about 3/4 the size of full size products) but they are chosen around a theme to create an on trend look. All of this for only $12 and free shipping! Each month, your products come packed in a travel-friendly "book" that even includes tips on how to wear and apply the products. The theme this month was Revival.
Just like last month, the packaging is out of this world. The colors are gorgeous and the "book" feels nice and sturdy. I can't say enough good things about the packaging. You can really tell that they put a lot of thought and effort into this subscription. The first item I went for was the lipstick in the color RAWR! This is a matte, bright pink that is absolutely stunning! I did apply it over a little bit of lip balm because my lips are always chapped, but on my wrist, it is over nothing.
There was an eyeshadow duo in the color Agave. The first color is a dusty, rosy pink and the second is a little harder to describe. It is a tan/beige with a slightly green/gold feel. They are both really pretty and apply and blend nicely. The last product included was a little bit of a dud for me. The mascara in the color Flora is a beautiful teal color. Unfortunately, on my naturally darker lashes, the color didn't show up well. I am going to play more with this and see if I can't get the color to show up better.
Overall, I really liked this month's LooksBook Membership. I like that you get a full look instead of random products that don't go together. The "book" itself is beautiful and great for travel. $12 for this membership is a total steal! Starlooks always has the best deals on subscription services! Be sure to check out everything that Starlooks offers and follow them on Facebook and Twitter to never miss any news!
