January 2013 Starlooks Starbox swatches

January 2013 Starlooks Starbox

"Fancy" Diamondline Pencil, "Brown" Eye Pencil, and "Cuty Peach" Blush
Wow. Just wow. This is probably my favorite box to date. Simply for the fact that it has the most AMAZING blush in it EVER. It's called Cuty Peach and is SO pigmented and gorgeous I just can't stand it!

I also love that it came with 4 products AND a bracelet.

 It came with:

Diamondline Pencil in "Fancy" which is a nice pastel shimmery greenish color. Diamondline Pencils are different from normal eyeliners in that they're very shimmery, very pigmented, and go on very smooth. This one was a hit in my book.

Eye Pencil in "Brown" - kind of your every day brown eyeliner. Perfect for days when you feel like have a slightly more natural look. Nice pigmentation but will smudge a little if you have a tendency to touch or rub your eyes.

#858 brush. - almost identical to mac's 214 short shader brush. Great for packing on eyeshadow or smudging shadow or liner under the eye area.

Cuty Peach Blush - the rockstar of the box. Wow. Seriously, this blush is to die for. It's the most beautiful pinky peach color when worn.

Super Exciting News!!!!

February Starlooks Starbox 

Back in April, I subbed to the Starbox and have been reviewing it every months. A Couple of months ago, the owner of the company, a super nice lady named Marci, had found out about me and said she wanted to do a collab with me on an upcoming box. I had no idea it would actually come true.

There has been one other "signature" special edition starbox in the past that featured a magazine editor and fashion designer. It was a really cool box. This time it's my turn.

Starlooks like to collaborate with individuals who are up and coming ( I think it's awesome they regard me in that way). It was such a joy to be able to work with them and give them my input on which products and colors should be featured in Feb's box.

I'm not allowed to tell you what's in it....yet...just know that I love and stand behind the products.

If you haven't subscribed to the Starbox...please subscribe for this month in support of me. I'd really appreciate it. It's $15 and you will receive 4 full sized products. You may stop your subscription at any time with no penalty.

You have until February 1st to sign up in time to receive my February box! Click here to sign up: Lauren Clark's Starbox
Thank you for your support!! xoxo LC
