Unboxing March 2015 Starlooks Starbox

I posted the Starlooks Looksbook for March ~  I was thinking we might get Starlooks new “lip paint” and maybe an eyeshadow.  How did I do with my guesses?

Starlook’s Starbox theme for March is Color My World

These unusually frigid days call for us to turn up the heat! It may not feel like it’s almost Spring, but a girl can dream!And how better to dream than with some dreamy NEW products from Starlooks! That’s right… this month’s Starbox will feature one brand new, never seen before item – launched exclusively to March Starbox Members first!


Informational Card

Starbox Revealed!

Top to Bottom:  Volume Mascara, Diamond Lip Gloss, Infatuated Lip Slick


Volume Mascara in Black ~ okay, black mascara.  For the theme “Color My World”, why not a colored mascara?  This is a volume mascara.  Value $15.00

Description: This mascara contains a deep black pigment to get the blackest lashes possible! It utilizes a polymer that builds upon itself – with each brush stroke the mascara builds and builds, creating a massive volume at the root of the lash! Provides a shiny, thick finish. 

Lip Gloss in Diamond ~ Diamond is just clear.  Yep, a clear lip gloss for the “Color My World” theme.  I don’t use clear lip glosses as my lips aren’t that pigmented.   Value $13.00

Description: A truly moisturizing, non-sticky formula available in 47 different shades. Tint ranges from sheer to opaque and finish ranges from shimmer to satin. This creamy, glassy, long-lasting gloss adds a glistening effect to any lip look. Designed to be worn alone or in combination with other Starlooks lip products for a truly customizable finish that completes any look. Each tinted Lip Gloss comes beautifully packaged in a translucent tube with a doe foot applicator.

Ultra Matte Lip Slick in Infatuated ~ yeah, the “lip paint”!  Boo-hiss, the color.  Well, it does fulfill the “Color My World” theme ~ this is a bright, bright, bright pink-coral shade.  For those who read my Memebox reviews, you will note that this color is one that I loathe and makes me look like death warmed over.   Some women really ROCK this color, I do not.  Sigh.  I am excited that Starlooks is going to have this line of Lip Slicks and will be checking it out to see if they have more berry or muted shades.   The only lip slick they have on sale is a bright red, so I am hoping that it will be released soon.  I am not swatching this as I am not keeping it. Value $14.00

Description:  This longwear matte lip formula provides that luscious, velvet pout you’ve been looking for. It’s vibrant bright color will help you turn up the heat in this unusually cold weather and get you excited for Spring/Summer events to come!

Wellllll…..I guess March boxes with Starlooks is jinxed for me ~ last year’s March box was awful ~ horrid red lip colors and a black eyeliner (and this was curated by a beauty blogger, no less!)   The items here are nice ~ but it is the colors that lack the execution with me.  I would have rather had a more muted, wearable lip stain, a sheer tinted lip gloss and a fun colored mascara (purple, green, blue).  Instead, a lip stain that is a color that I certainly cannot pull off (and it makes me look like I have died and gone to Vegas), a boring clear lip gloss (that is what my lip balms are for) and a boring black mascara.  After the last couple of months of just amazing items, I guess I was due for a dud of a box.  This box was curated poorly for a theme of “Color My World”.  The total value of this box was $42.00 and I paid $17.68.

So, there are going to be changes to Starlooks subscription service.

Here is their official press release on the changes

The feedback provided by our customers and subscribers over the years, as well as through our 2014 survey, has been used to develop TWO new and improved Starbox Subscriptions – both catering to your collective wants and needs!
GET EXCITED!  We’ve partnered up with the Fashion and Lifestyle Industry! The new Starboxes are the perfect way to get a first look at new Fashion and Lifestyle brands & their new lines and products: with subscriber-exclusive Gift Cards…. (That’s right, we’re giving you MONEY towards products that YOU choose)!
CUSTOM STARBOX  Launches May 11th – first delivery in June. Each month, Custom Starbox Subscribers will be prompted to “make your picks”! You’ll choose:
1.  2 (out of 4) STARLOOKS PRO Travel-Sized* Cosmetics;
2.  3 (out of 6 to 9) Fashion & Lifestyle Brand Partner’s Gift Cards (offering real money toward fashion items, lifestyle items, and accessories).

PLUS !!  Coming soon after, you’ll also be given the option to “tack on” (buy) additional fashion items, lifestyle items, and accessories (at a significantly discounted price) that Brands opt to sell exclusively to our subscribers!

CLASSIC STARBOX  Launches May 11th – first delivery in June.  We’re proud of our baby – the current, classic Starbox.  BUT! We spruced her up a bit  ;).  Each month, Classic Starbox Subscribers will receive:
1.  A limited edition set of 3 STARLOOKS PRO Travel-Sized* Cosmetics (and a tutorial on how to apply them) that create a specific “look”.  Each month’s products & colors are carefully selected according to forecasted trends in the fashion & beauty world!
2.  A selection of Brand’s gift cards (offering real money toward fashion items, lifestyle items, and accessories) that complement each month’s “look”!
EXTRA PERKS (as if that wasn’t enough…)
We’ve heard that our current program may be too expensive for some of you! Well, no more – we’re lowering our box price!  Both the Custom & Classic Starboxes are now only $12 per month – INCLUDING SHIPPING* !! So there’s no reason not to subscribe to at least one of these babies!  *International shipping will incur additional charges
Are you “All Makeup’d Out”Swimming in full-size products that might take years to use up?  Is the makeup bag in your purse adding like, “10 lbs.” to your tote (aka extra trips to the chiropractor)?  Well, no more – Classic & Custom Starbox items will now be travel-sized* for ultimate convenience! We’re helping you cut down on your makeup clutter and providing you with cosmetics that are sized specifically for “on-the-go” girls (and boys!).  You’re welcome.  *Travel-Size DOES NOT mean “sample” size. Don’t let the convenient size of our cosmetic containers fool you. The volume in each one is at least 70% of a full size item!
Thinking of subscribing to both boxes? That would be the best decision you ever made. Why? The Custom and Classic Starboxes will never contain the same STARLOOKS items, so subscribing to both will give you the most products and the widest variety – all for an astonishing low price! Also, the Classic Starbox “sets” will be limited edition collector’s items that will never be available in Starboxes again after the month they are distributed.  If you’re not subscribed, you could miss out on some really awesome stuff!
LET’S DO THIS!  “I’m gonna make you love me”………….
On May 11th current subscribers can officially “make the switch” to the Custom Starbox and/or (NEW) Classic Starbox! New subscribers will be welcome to join at this time as well!
May will be the last delivery month for the current Starbox. Stay tuned and don’t miss the launch of this revolutionary opportunity – The first subscription boxes of their kind!


I will stay on for a month or so to see how it works, but I am saddened by this change.  Not so much with the custom vs the classic, or that the sizes are going to be travel sizes ~ but the damn coupons and stuff.  I don’t use them.  I don’t want coupons to underwear and shit like that.   I have no idea who gave THAT feedback to Starlooks, that is for sure.  I like getting different items like the brush cleanser, but that was included in the box, not as a coupon.   I fear that Starlooks and me might be parting ways on the subscription front…..I liked that this was an all makeup service.
