April Starlooks Starbox - Review & Swatches

Hello dollfaces! Today I have up the April Starlooks Starbox for review. For those who have missed the last two months I reviewed, Starlooks Starbox is a $15 monthly subscription service that sends out about 2-3 full size products of their own. Let's hop into April's Starbox and see what's inside.

As I always mention, the packaging is always classy and simplistic.

This month's postcard definitely reminds me of Coachella. I wouldn't mind getting one of those headbands in the box! ;)

Translucent Mineral Powder - $19
I was thrilled to find this in the box since I was on the market for a new powder, especially with summer around the corner (hello oily t-zone!) because it'll be great for setting my makeup and soaking up the oil. This powder was very silky to the touch. 

Mint SPF Lip Balm - $5
Nothing too special about this lip balm except that it tastes AH-MAZING! It also doesn't tingle the lips like I thought it would being a mint lip balm. 

Tender Gloss Lipstick in Trinity - $11
The best product in this box! Holy guacamole. It's the coolest mix of a lipstick but a lipgloss at the same time. I can't even describe it. It's super moisturizing and somewhat opaque.  I was afraid of the color at first, a bronze-y gold, but it seems to be flattering.

Unfortunately, the color wouldn't catch on my camera. It's definitely a bit darker but at least you can see the flecks in it.

Lash Boost Mascara Base - $15
I have always wanted to try a mascara base under my mascara! First off, check out the packaging! So futuristic and awesome looking. 

When I first opened it, I had no clue what the little "hairs" were on it. Then it dawned on me they were fibers and I got nervous. I wear contacts and my eyes are kind of sensitive. What if those fibers get in my eyes? Ahhh. Needless to say, they didn't and my peepers were fine. The fibers attach to your eyelashes to make an "extension" as a base.

Okay. So I may need some practice. I was slightly freaking out over the fibers at the time so forgive me. I did notice an extreme extension of my eyelashes and they looked cool when they weren't being macro'd by my camera. This is one coat of Clump Crusher over the base.
