Starlooks Box Review- October 2012 - Monthly Makeup Subscription Box

Ok, So I know many of you have been looking for a monthly subscription beauty box that is MAKEUP ONLY.....Well, I found it!! It is Amazing!! Here is a little information from their site.

Starlooks believes that licensed makeup artists shouldn't be the only ones with access to high-endaffordable makeup products. We believe every makeup lover is a pro, and deserves a chance to purchase artist quality makeup at pro prices! Shop through an ever-expanding variety of color selections and product choices that are all of M.A.C® quality (or better)! You're guaranteed to be blown away by not only our prices, but also the lasting wear, the vibrance, the creamy and smooth application, and the light-weight feel of all Starlooks makeup products.
Starlooks Makeup Line is entirely *Lead Free, *Emollient Free, and *Cruelty Free.
Let me tell you, This is very "high-end" makeup. You can tell the difference immediately!! When I opened the box and started testing everything out, I couldn't believe you could get this kind of quality for only $15...It is truly amazing!! Oh Yes...You heard me right..only $15 and No, It is not one product, you are going to get 3-4 FULL SIZE products every month!! Ok, so now for the fun part....

The Cost: $15
The Products: 3-4 Full Size High-End Makeup products

Pigment Luster - Full Size!! - Value $12
This is amazing!! The feel of it, The color...It's just incredible!!
Gold Dust

Eye Pencil- Full Size- Value $8

This is the most amazing color, It is blood-orange with a hint of orange shimmer and the way it feels is just so awesome!!

This was a little surprise included in the box and I think it is awesome!! It is eye tattoos and just perfect for Halloween!!

This is a mystic quartz crystal, They are included in every box . These crystal's attract energy, help maintain focus and are the ultimate symbol of beauty! It states on the card : "We hope you collect them in a glass jar to create a brush holder for your Starlooks Brushes"  How cool is that!
I am telling you guys I can not believe the quality of this makeup and there is NO WAY it should only cost $15. You have got to sign up for this incredible box, This box was provided to me for free to review and give my honest opinion on and I promise I thought I would like it, I mean the way I was thinking is any box with 3-4 full size products is worth$15 and makeup is makeup right? Well, Let me tell you all makeup IS NOT created equal, This is truly Amazing!! I was so surprised by the quality and then the price is just unbelieveable!! I know most of my girls on here love makeup as much as I do and I want you to experience this and see for yourself what I am talking about so I am going to do something I have never done before because I really believe in these products and this incredible value so much and I want my fellow fashionistas to try this with no worries...You go sign up and get your first box, If you do not love this as much as I do....I will buy your box from you!!  That's how amazing this really is, I know you will fall in love as much as I have and I am signing up too!!

Verdict: The cost of the box is $15 and I received $37 worth of products!! I think I have already made it clear how I feel about this but just incase...I LOVE IT!! The products are amazing and the quality is just unreal!! This is a really amazing value!!

I'm Back!!!!

I am so sorry things have been quiet the last few days but my service had been out. I have Dish and they kept coming out trying to figure out what was wrong. Every time they tried to replace the equipment, thinking  the issue could be there, the new equipment would malfunction. Well, after numerous technicians working on it and the last one staying until 10pm on a sunday night, They finally figured out what the problems was. I have a surround sound home theater system ( like most people do) well, It has a big sub-woofer that goes to it and they kept sitting the equipment on it and come to find out it has a big magnet in it and that is what caused all the equipment to malfunction! So, beware of this because it can also damage televisions and other electronics!!

So, now that all that is behind me, I am back and have several product reviews coming up. Also, Keep your eyes open. I have a BIG Christmas Giveaway coming up and another blogger will be co-hosting it with me. She is Awesome and I have no doubt, you all will love her and her blog! I want to give you guys what you want so....I need some ideas. We already have a makeup prizes and I know I had one suggestion for jewelry so I am working on that. I am planning on several different winners, so give me some more ideas of things that you guys would like to have. There is no wrong answers or ideas...It can be anything...just throw it out there and you never know....It just may be one of the prizes!!

Ok, Well I am have several post coming up for product reviews...So, until then.... Bye, Bye Fashion bugs

God Bless You All!!

Freebies scored on posted deals from last 2 weeks.....

Hello again to all my beautiful peeps..... I am going to list the items I received from three different deals. These are all from the same deals I posted here for you guys, I just got them today. Ok, First up:

 This is what I scored from with my $15 credit, I love it!!  I colors of these polishes look really pretty in the picture, to me, but they are much prettier in person and I got to pick 3 free samples too so this was a really awesome freebie!!

Did any of you get in on this deal? If so, What did you get? Comment or post a picture, I would love to see them!!

Ok, Next up:

This is what I got from TopFloor. I received a $20 credit for signing up and then they posted a promo code for another $10 on their facebook page. I really love the scarf, The picture doesn't do it justice, they did send me the wrong color, but I may just keep this one instead of sending it back because it is really pretty too.

Did any of you get in on this one? If so, either leave a comment on what you got or post a picture!

Ok, now last but not least :

This is what I got with the $10 Cabela's credit. It is a pair of socks but they are really cute and kinda thick so   I thought I would wear them with my P.J.'s on cold nights.

Did any of you get in on this deal? If so, What did you get?

Oh...One more thing. This was not a freebie but it is a really good deal I got from Groupon. I saw these sun glasses and could not resist the deal. I thought if I didn't like them it would make a good Christmas Gift but I actually love them!! Here it is :

I really ended up liking these a lot and the pictures on these really do not do them justice!! I have worn them for 2 days and received a lot of
compliments on them and for $16, You can't beat it!!

Well, Thats all for today....If you guys have any incredible deals that you've scored lately, feel free to share them with us. In this day and age, with this economy I know we all can appreciate a good deal!! Thank you guys for following my blog and I will go ahead and fill you in on a little surprise.....I have a really big giveaway, with multiple winners coming up in be on the look out for that but don't worry, you won't have to wait until December for a giveaway.....I also have a really good one coming up very soon for surpassing 200 awesome followers!! Thanks again, You guys rock!!

Beauty Army Box- October 2012 Review- Monthly Beauty Subscription Box

This Is my first Beauty Army Box. When you sign up you will complete your beauty profile and then 9 products will be chosen based on your answers you gave. At that time you get to choose the 6 items you want. Don't like any of the items? That's ok too, you can retake the beauty profile as many times as you want   until you get the items you like in your selection window. The profile questions are very short so it's no big deal to re take. What happens if you forget to go pick your items? No problem, the stylist will pick them for you based upon your answers in the profile. What if you don't like any of the products at all or you cash flow is short from time to time? No problem, You can skip the month anytime at all!! Every month on the 1st your selection window opens up and you have until the 5th to pick your items or cancel, they ship within 8-10 days of your selection. You also will have a shop button in your account, thats where all the items from your box will be so if you fall in love with one of your samples you just go right there and buy it. You can also click on full shop and shop all the items they carry. So, what are you waiting for girls? Oh yeah, Sorry on with the review!

As you can see all the items come in a super cute reusable box. Solid pink on the outside and very cute pink and white camo on the inside...

The Box: Beauty Army

The Cost: $12 ( Inc. Shipping )

The Products: 6 Deluxe and Full size beauty and Skincare Products.

Skinn Cosmetics in Coral Poppy- Full size!! Value- $ 18.50

Lipsi Cosmetics/Aphrodite Powder- 5ml Value- $ 5

I love both of these items and both were totally new to me. The lip gloss is really cool, it has lip gloss on one end and a moisturizing lip stick on the other end...It also has a built in mirror and I love the color. When I checked on it I found that it also had amazing reviews as well as the Lipsi Powder!!

Suntegrity BB Cream- .25oz Value- $ 10

Emani Minerals Primer -  Value- $ 1.50

I was glad to see both of these in y selection window. Suntegrity, I am familiar with and love, it's always good to have a travel size of products you love. The Emani Primer has incredible reviews and I have been dying to try it out!!

You Da Balm Coconut Lip balm - Full Size!! Value- $ 3

INEKE-Hothouse flower perfume- .05oz Value- $ 5

Both of these products were new to me. I really like the Lip balm, I love getting lip balm in sample boxes anyways but this is a really good one!! The INEKE Perfume has a really nice floral scent, very long lasting so a little goes along way!! Everything I got has really awesome reviews and I was ve happy with them all!!

Verdict: I paid $12 and got $43 worth of products so it is a very good value and I really liked all the products. I found several products that were totally new to me that I think are going to become some of my favorites!! I like the fact that you get to choose your products so you won't wind up with items that you won't use but it does take the surprise element out of it but If you are subscribed to other boxes than thats not a big deal at all because those are going to be surprises and a lot of people don't really care about being surprised they just want product they are going to use.

Do you subscribe to Beauty Army? If so do you like it and what products did you get this month? If you don't do you think you would be interested in getting this box?

The Box: BeautyBox 5

The Products: Get 4-5 Full size and deluxe Makeup and Skincare products

The Cost: $12 monthly, Sign up for 6 month sub and save $6, Sign up for yearly and get two free months

City Lips- .05oz- Value- $ 13.33

Show Stoppers-  2 strips- Value- $ .50

I was excited to see both of these products in my box. The city lips I have been wanting to try, It has amazing reviews! The Show Stopper I have used before and I love them!! I have umm bigger boobs so I have a problem with my button up shirt's gapping open across the breast and these work great to keep that gap closed!! They can also be used to hem pants, fix low-cut dress etc..

Lash Card- Value- $ 1.40

Margania Argan Oil- Value $ 5

I was also glad to see both of these products. I have been wanting to try the Lash Card and Argan Oil is amazing, I love it and I always use it. It is incredible for your skin and hair and having a travel size bottle is always great. A little of this stuff goes along ways so This small bottle will last a long time!!

Furlesse Elevens- 3 patches- Value $ 1.50

Goat Haus Dairy- Full Size!! Value- $2.50

Again, I loved seeing these products in my box. The Furlesse Elevens are frown line reducing patches, I've never heard of these but I am very excited to try them out and when I this product up it has very good reviews, also they have a whole line of patches for different problems...crows feet, lip lines etc...
The lip balm..I always love getting lip balm in my boxes because I use them all the time and have a habit of losing them so this will definitely go to good use also I received a product last month from this brand and it was awesome so I am excited to try out another one of their products!!

Verdict- I paid $12 and received $24.23 worth of products so that's double what I paid...I am very happy there also I loved and will use all the products. One thing I love about Beauty Box 5 is they always send promo codes for all the products in the box to help out with full size products. Also, I have never received a foil pack from them, all the products are either full size or actual deluxe samples so you always get several uses out of a product. More than enough to tell if the product is for you and that is what a sample box is suppose to do!!

This is my first bag from The Look Bag, From what I can tell they came out for several months and had some issues or something so they stopped shipping for awhile and now they just had their official re-launch. I don't know what happened before but all I can say, after receiving my first bag, is WOW!! They certainly don't have any issues now. They guarantee at least 2 out of the 5 products will be full size and the others deluxe. Now, I'm happy if I get at least one full size item in my boxes, so when I read that..Oh yeah..It was on, I ordered immediately. Shipping was really fast also. Ok..on to the good stuff... The package comes in this cute pink bubble wrap....

Verdict: I paid 9.71 ( w/ promo code) and I received $50.30 worth of products. I love this box and I hope it is an example of things to come.

I am tired of all the skincare products in my other products, I have been wanting one with more makeup and this one sure delivered on that. 4 out of 5 products were full size which is incredible and the brands are amazing. I can't think of anything at all negative about this box.
