It’s that time again. My Starbox is here! For those that don’t know, it is a monthly subscription that sends you Starlooks products to try out. The catch is that you get full sized items! So, without further ado I present my March box:
Our cute box is brown with blue text and a gold bow this time.

We got a code for eye goodies! YAY!
All the goodies
All of the goodies opened
Starlooks Lipstick in Flutter: This is a beautiful frosty copper. It is a very warm color. The lipstick formula is a little grainy but not uncomfortable. It has great coverage in one swipe.
This is Starlooks Eye Shadow in Disarray. It is a dark navy but appears mostly gray with a hint of a navy undertone. It only has the tiniest bit of sparkle and is almost matte. It was well pigmented and would be absolutely perfect for a dark blue smokey eye.
This is Starlooks Vanilla Lip Sugar. It is a lip exfoliant and was included as an extra surprise. I like surprises! I opened this up and caught the smell of sugar cookies. It really smells so good. It felt good on my lips when I tried it. It wasn’t too rough or drying.
Ah, finally. The elusive Starlooks Lengthening mascara has made its way into our box. I think a lot of makeup junkies have been hoping for this. The tube is huge and heavy, probably the heaviest I own. It went on smoothly and has a nice full brush to really pull those lashes up. I didn’t have goopy problems with it. Have to try this out for a few more days before I make my final decision on this one.

Last month I purchased some stuff from Ulta. I even took pictures and everything and then forgot to post it. Silly me. I bought a foundation and eyeliner. I received a gift with purchase which included the bag and it’s contents. Anyway, here is what I got.
Ulta Fabulous Face Foundation in Nude Beige
This is Ulta Fabulous Face Natural Finish Foundation in Nude Beige. I swatched it on my arm so you could see the color better. The formula is ok. It’s not my favorite but it’s not bad. I put it away to use for a backup.
This is Ulta Automatic Eyeliner in Teal Blue. I am such a sucker for this sort of blue with a touch of green. Definitely glad I bought this.
These are the samples I received with my order. The Taylor Swift Wonderstruck was pretty nice. It was very, very fruity. It smelled a lot like a berry pie. I don’t normally wear fruit scents but it was still nice. Laura Geller Spackle: haven’t tried this yet. Benefit Hello Flawless: haven’t tried this yet either.
This is the bag my gift with purchase came in. I got the Mystic Collection. It flips open and unzips. It’s a really cute bag.
Here is what was in the bag:
Ulta Instant Nourish Facial Moisturizer: Your average moisturizer, works ok, good size for a purse.
Ulta Lipcolor in Goodyear for Wine: This lipstick is really pretty. I am a sucker for reds and dark berries. This is something I will definitely use. (swatch below)
Two Ulta Quads: The colors are pretty on these but they are only so so as far as pigmentation goes. I will probably give these to my daughters.
Ulta Polish in Femme Fatale: This is a nice burgundy color, perfect for fall. The formula is ok.
Ulta Blush in Adore: This is a medium brown with a hint of pink. Once again, a nice color for fall.
Ulta Super Shiny Lipgloss in Stellar: This is a nice light color for fall when you want a more subtle look. No flavor, no scent.
Ulta Dual Ended Liner in Dark Brown and Black: I haven’t tried this yet because I rarely use pencils anymore.
Ulta Legendary Lengths Mascara in black: This is a pretty nice mascara. It wasn’t clumpy at all and didn’t bother my eyes.
Three Ulta Brushes: These were only ok. They aren’t as good as the brushes I am used to using. I passed them onto my little girls.
Now for a couple of swatches. The lipgloss is on the left with the lipstick on the right.
So what do you think? I was only so so about this haul. I got most of it free so that’s ok. I really like the lippies and the teal liner a lot. Ciao for now!
