Starlooks Box Review

We all want the latest makeup products, but how do we know if they will work for us? Of course you can look for makeup review on this site, or any other review site. Which is wonderful, and I’m glad you’re here for this review. Although there are many other options for you to test out the latest and greatest makeup products. So what is this other option? There are companies out there, that for a monthly fee, will send you samples of these awesome products. One of these wonderful companies is Starlooks.
 
I was able to receive Starlooks August Starbox which features some really awesome products that were hand picked by Lauren Bradley. The box I received was their first special edition box, and I definitely have to agree that it was special! My box came with some very pretty pink lip gloss and some really gorgeous eyeliner. 
Before I talk about the products let me talk about the focus of this box, Lauren Bradley. Lauren is a very famous fashion designer that has worked with Heidi Klum, Regina Spektor, Chris Martin, and many more. She believes that every woman should look no further than our natural form to find our true beauty. I was very excited to try the products that she picked for this box. 

The lip gloss is very pretty. The color is absolutely amazing, and lasted way longer than a lot of glosses I have used before. Not only is the bottle pretty, but the brush is really awesome and makes it really easy to apply. The lip gloss itself is not too thick, and creates a perfect shine on my lips. It surprisingly also helped moisturize my lips, which was a major plus.
The second product included in the box was one of my new favorite makeup products, eye liner. Until recently I have not ever really been introduced into the makeup world. I have only really seen what is included in the cheap sections of store like Target or Walgreens. Because of my blogging adventures I have learned what good makeup is really like. This particular eye liner comes in a jar and you use a brush to apply it. This type of eyeliner is VERY new to me, so I was excited to compare it to traditional eye liner. 
This eyeliner almost looks gold in the jar, but is a lot darker on the eyes, which is great for me. I hate that when using cheap eye liner you get this awkward mirror effect from it. If you try to get rid of it you end up ruining the rest of your makeup. What seems like something that is too thick to put on your eyes ends up being extremely easy to apply. It glides on like no other liner I have ever used, it does not create a mirror effect, and it stays on for hours. Not only that but it does not crack, and dries very quickly. I even left it on over night and the majority was still there. 

I really like my Starbox, and for $15 I believe you get more then your monies worth. Their products are really great, and their customer service is also great. You can find Starlooks on their website here.

Paul & Joe Review

Who is Paul & Joe made for?
“Women who are totally self aware and fueled by an inner confidence. Women who are brimming with so much determination to enjoy life that they may seem a little hedonistic. She is savvy, stylish, and not afraid to address her needs and desired. Women who have these qualities, and at the same time project charm, passion, and compassion. These are the women Paul & Joe is made for.”
Does this sound like you, or someone you know? If so then I have something really cool to share with you.
 
When you look at all the Paul & Joe products you can’t help but think about how cute they are. To me Paul & Joe products are adult beauty products in kids packaging. Before you think that this is a bad thing, please reconsider. Their products may have all the fun qualities of children’s play makeup such as fun colors, and fun packaging, but they have the quality of some of the most expensive cosmetics without the price tag. I was able to receive a sample of their nail polish as well as their lip gloss from their summer 2012 cosmetics line.
Before I share with you my findings on these products I wanted to tell you why I was beyond excited to review them The summer 2012 line is inspired by Shakespeare’s play “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” So this lines colors are made to remind you of everything that has to do with my favorite thing, fairies! I could not wait to get this collection into my hands!
The first product that I am going to talk about is the “Fairie Kisses” Lip gloss. At first I was terrified of using this product. Remember when I said that the colors and designs reminded me of children’s makeup? This lip gloss is the man reason I said that. Not only is the lip gloss in a tube that a child would love, which mine does, but the lip gloss itself is green. Green is one of my least favorite colors, and definitely not a color I would choose for my lips, but I decided to try it anyway.

I was very surprised with this product. What I thought would be a horrible experience ended up being amazing. The lip gloss not only went on clear, but stayed on for a very long time. It was not overly sticky and did not make  my lips feel weird or dry out when it wore off. In fact, it actually plumped and even conditioned my lips. I could not believe how amazing my lips looked and felt with this lip gloss on. It must have been the added pixie-dust!
My favorite of the two that I received was the “Pixie” nail polish. Pixie is a very sparkly silver based nail polish that when in the light comes to life by showing its many sparkling colors. While I generally love silver, I don’t normally wear it for long because the color either fades or the silver just becomes boring. I don’t think Pixie will ever becomes boring or will ever lose its shine!
This nail polish glides on like no other nail polish I have used. With most glittery nail polish it either takes a few tries to lay flat or will leave a lot of bumps on the surface from the glitter itself. I did not come across either problem when applying this nail polish. I only have to use 2 coats to get an amazing layer of color over my nails. 
One thing I have always struggled with when it comes to nail polish is getting it to stay on my nails. Nail polish will literally peel right off in a matter of minutes, even acrylics will start to lift off of my nails on the first day. I am proud to report to you that this nail polish did not lift, peel, or even lose its perfect shine for over a week. I was so excited that I finally found a polish that not only looks great but that actually stays on my nails too. I will definitely be buying more of this nail polish, along with other colors in the very near future!
You can find these and other great Paul & Joe products here.
