December Starlooks Starbox Unboxing, Review, & Swatches

Starlooks 15 Shade Shadow Palette

Starlooks Starbox is a monthly subscription service that costs $15 for a selection of full size products from the brand Starlooks. This month, I received a palette that otherwise costs $99 from their website and contains a mix of matte, shimmery, and metallic shadows with varying hues. While I wouldn't necessarily pay $99 for the full size palette, it's comparable to a 15 pan MAC palette you can customize for $160, and I find the quality to be similar (although the shadows aren't removable). So, in that respect, it's a good deal and made this box well worth the price.


  • The service promises a $35-$99 value each month - something they definitely delivered on this month!
  • They recently started a rewards program where every third month you stay subscribed, you receive a gift worth $35. 
  • You receive 1 point for every dollar spent with Starlooks and $10 for every 100 points you earn. 
  • You receive a free gift box for every person who signs up using your referral link. 


  • Not as much of a "community" as you might find with more established monthly boxes.
  • It's $15 rather than the $10 Birchbox and Ipsy charge per month.
  • Boxes aren't customized according to a beauty profile - although their FAQ suggests they might be as they grow in the future.
  • You only receive Starlooks products - a downside for those looking for a variety of full size products. 
Overall I think this is a service to watch out for. I'm going to keep trying it for a few more months to get a feel for the consistency of the products you receive each time, but if you don't mind receiving full size products from the same brand (so long as the quality is there), this is a great option! Check out the New Year's Eve tutorial I created below, and get all the steps for the look in my Makeup Wars post.
