November 2012 Starlooks Starbox review and swatches

November's Starlooks Starbox was one that was semi-customizable. They sent out an email asking if you wanted the light, medium, or dark kit. I received the light kit. Please see the review at the bottom of this post.




Nov 2012 Starbox

November's starbox came with a nude lipstick, an eyeshadow quad, and mascara guard.

November 2012 Starbox Light Eyeshadow Quad: Pearl Reflection, Celestial, Wicked Wink, and Almond.

Review

Eyeshadow Quad: I was so massively impressed by the pigmentation of the eyeshadows and how smooth they went on. I was also impressed with the colors they chose for this quad. These colors are great for everyday wear, and Almond (the deeper brown) works great to fill in my brows. There was one downfall to this quad that could easily be fixed. The shadows that are in there are not magnetized in there, so if you flip the quad over, they fall out. I'm not sure if the pans are missing the magnets, if the quad is missing its magnet, or if they both don't have a magnet, but I'm sure you can go to an office supply store and pick up some magnet stickers.

Lipstick: This is a great nude for me. I like that it's not super opaque, I'm not into opaque nudes because they usually look yucky on me.

All in all, this was a really great box to get. Definitely my favorite so far (I know I've said that a couple of times about previous months! They keep outdoing themselves!

I know for a fact the December box is going to be HUGE (as in awesome!) I highly suggest signing up today so that you dont miss out on December...you won't regret it!

It's also not too late to order the November box, Starlooks offers the option of buying previous boxes.

MAC Taste Temptation Swatches

MAC Taste Temptation
MAC Taste Temptation Quad: Look At The Eyes, Stay Sultry, Naval (PRO), Carbon (perm) eyeshadow swatches
MAC Taste Temptation Blushes: Unconventional and Passionately Tempted Blush Swatches
MAC Taste Temptation Nocturnal Instinct, Seductive Intent, Night Blooming Mattenes. MAC Taste Temptation Good Times, Perky, Revenge Is Sweet Lipglass. MAC Fluidline Macroviolet and Waveline swatches.

MAC Taste Temptation Quad:

 Look At the Eyes is a silvery lilac color very similar to mac Crystal Eye shadow.
Stay Sultry is very similar to MAC's LE Thunder shade. *note, there has been 2 previous thunder shades. One was pink, one was a bluish purple.
Naval is a permanent pro shade with a great buttery texture and pigmentation
Carbon is a permanent shade as well.

MAC Taste Temptation Lipglasses: 

Good Times is a pale greyish lavendar color. It does not suit me.
Perky is a lovely pinkish lavendar with pearlized pigments.
Revenge Is Sweet is a pinkish purple that is very sheer. I layered a lot of product in this swatch so that you can see it's color, however, upon first swatch, it's basically clear with a tinge of pink. Not worth getting in my opinion. Perky is definitely the nicest of the bunch.

MAC Taste Temptation Mattenes:


Mattenes are by far my favorite mac lipstick finish ever. I was so happy to see they were bringing a few into this collection. All three shades are lovely and very opaque with a matte-satin finish.

MAC Taste Temptation Blushes:


Unconventional is a pale pinkish lavender shade that would probably suit nw15-nw25 and nc15-nc30 skintones the best. It may look chalky on skin tones darker than that. Otherwise, it's a beautiful color with a slight sheen (despite being named a frost finish by mac)
Passionately Tempted is extremely pigmented and is a muted magenta color. Because it's so pigmented, it's a little harder to work with and blend. Good for all skin tones, even lighter skintones. Can be used with a light hand if you're worried it's too dark.
