Starlooks May 2014 (SPOILERS)

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping for:

  • French Connection cream blush
  • Eye shadow brush (I don't really care which one!  I love to have a stash of clean brushes in case I change my mind mid-week and decide I want to use radically different colors than the day before since I only wash my brushes once a week, not after each use, and changing colors midweek and using the same brush means muddy color)
  • Makeup remover (I don't really see anything else in the shop that I think is a likely match for the model's colors, and makeup remover could fit the theme because you're always grimy and filthy after a day on the road)
  • Another loyalty code!  I have my eye on a few things, but one of those budget things is getting in the way.

 

I have a funny feeling one of the Infinity lipsticks (most likely suspects:  Millennium and Ageless) is going to show up, but I am hoping against that.  Starlooks lip product overload right here.  That shadow kind of looks like the lighter green in the April palette to me.  But it also reminds me of last May's box when we all went *bonkers* over the turquoise because *clearly* that's the point of the photo and the bold month designation!  (Note to newbies:  Starlooks had been planning on doing a bold/neutral/mixed rotation where we would get all bold stuff one month, all neutral stuff the next, and a mix the third.  That announcement did not go over well, and it was scrapped after just a few months.)  Cannot wait!  And then the boxes arrived, and no turquoise shadow.

That was the worst! (ok probably not LOL) I remember all of us just going crazy over the amazing turquoise! Hooray for color and then BAM we open the boxes to utter blandness (of course the blush ended up being AMAZING, but to open the box expecting turquoise awesomeness and see a brown pigment, brow compact and a crazy red-brown blush was so disappointing. Again, I love that blush and the brow compact is the only brow product I own and use, it was a useful and overall good box, just such a let down with the lack of turquoise). I am hoping after the outrage we had here, they wouldn't tease us with color and not deliver LOL

Love the green color. I would like that pigment posted above. I use loose pigments on my lower lash line a lot (sometimes just over primer, sometimes with a foiling medium). I'd be ok with it being a gel liner. As long as it's colorful, I'm cool. The rest I haven't really looked at. I just want the green!!!

wow, that would be just cruel of starlooks to do that (and because they did it before too!) and not give us a greenie!!  ohh, maybe it is a NEW gem pencil - and it is called emerald (that is me guessing, there is no emerald pencil ) As they introduced topaz and amy back in november, I think it was, maybe they are going for jewel colored names that are more vibrant.  Because they did have a purple   before topaz & amy was introduced...perhaps this one is deeper in its color.

 

I am hoping for a brush for the bronzer.   Or if the greenie is the pigment, perhaps a brush for that.   I would not mind an eyeshadow primer as well.  no mascara, please!  but it does look like we might get that one.

 

wish list

green eye whatever it is

split pan bronzer (maui or bali) - perhaps can be used as eyeshadow too, as the model has some brown eyeshadow

brush of some sort

 

if they do the loyalty gift like last time, I am getting the eye primer in clear for sure.

I used the green from the April palette to try and mimic this look today, and it looks GORGEOUS.

Then I thought to myself, 'wouldn't it be cool if they are coming out with a mixing medium since they sell so many pigments and glitters?'

 

It would be pretty cool.

omg - I did that as well today!! I love it!! hahaha

 

It would be great if they did that.  I do think that the green in the April palette is bit paler than what was shown, but maybe they used some super duper primer or something...

Ohhh, pretttty lookbook this month! I wouldn't mind a bronzer, but would LOVE a brush to go with it. L-O-V-E it. I wonder if they'll give us code or just go super crazy and throw in a bunch of products. 

 

Also, I am playing more with the palette from April and it's growing on me. @@biancardi I used the first color for a blush and loved it! Also used the lighter green last night for a fun spring look.

I looooooooooove the lookbook. I am feeling that we are going to get a pigment rathan an eyepencil in terms of how the model looks.

I would be super happy with a bronzer since we have not gotten one since June 2013. I was actually going to buy a bronzer if we got a loyalty code again so this could work out in my favor!

But I must admit, I am still really hoping for a blush.. and a brush would be awesome also!!

 

Anyways, i am hoping I get my box in its month this time since I still have not gotten April's yet!

What about these colors?

 

It's one of their single eye shadows in Real Turquoise and their bronzer in Maui

That turquoise was the one they used for the May 2013 shoot that we all flipped out about because OMG SO BRIGHT *WANT*!.  I have it, and it's a *lot* more vivid than the swatch photo makes it look.

I am not real skilled with bronzer/contouring, but if we were to get another one of their bronzers, I'd like it to be that one. I like that it has two shades, so I think I'd be more likely to use it since there are options lol.

I think the green eye shadow could be their single shadow in Jungle:

es54-Jungle_1_1024x1024.jpg?v=1375828974 It looks slightly darker/not as bright as the looksbook, but their swatches aren't the best, so in person, I think it could be a match.

I would be surprised if it was a single eyeshadow this month, especially if it was a green color just because we got a bright green in our palette last month. It seems like it would be overkill. But I also know Starlooks sent out a lot of red warm colors last year so who knows.

 

I really think the bronzer is going to be in there for sure so I've got my fingers crossed for the 2 colored one. And I'm really hoping that green comes in the form of an eyeliner. (I love colored liners & don't have many)

 

Whatever they send this month, I think it's going to be a good box for me. I loved the looksbook this month.

The Aurora Longwear Eyeliner Pot looks like it could be a match and there are like 3 green pencil liners.

 

I'm thinking bronzer, mascara and *hopefully* the green whatever. It seems like usually the models have big 'ol falsies and this time it looks more like natural lashes with mascara, so that is the main reason why I say mascara (and since it's been about a year since we got one).

If that's the loyalty gift, I think this might be my last month. I'm just not interested in blush or those spa towell things. As much as I love the products I've been receiving, I find I just don't use them as much as I thought I would. I really liked the $35 coupon we got last time because it gave me the chance to try some things that I wouldn't normally buy for myself, and I was hoping that would be the gift again this time. Ah well!

The blush looks like it could be Pink Fig and the brush is one of their Duet Brushes.  I love both their brushes and blushes, so I am very happy so far!

My impression was that the towels are in the box, and the other two things are just coming to Starlooks, not necessarily in the box or the loyalty gift. I can see the brush being the gift, though, since it seems like it would probably be around $35 like the kitty paw foundation brush.

I would take those items as my box or my loyalty gift. I love their brushes SO much & that pink is beautiful for eyes or cheeks. I'm crossing my fingers that these come this month in one way or the other.

    • Now I'm happy because I bought an expensive set of cosmetics and a large organizer. I work as a makeup artist and have long dreamed of changing my professional tools and cosmetics. Thanks to payday loan company North Carolina, my dream came true. I think a loan is a good way to fulfill your dreams.
    • As aging, more and more spots will appear on the skin, especially on our face. It’s our nature to pursue beauty that all of us want to make our skin looks clean and spotless, so most of us use a thick foundation to cover the spots.   But if we know where the stains come from, maybe we will not be so anxious. Usually there are two key reasons that cause the spots because the pigmentation of the skin is closely related to the melanocytes in the basal layer of the skin: 1. One is that the melanocytes in the base of the epidermis increase, which will form a nest of melanocytes, such as pigmented nevus; 2. The another is that melanocytes synthesized by melanocytes are increased, such as sun spots, age spots, and chloasma.  What results in melanocytes increasing? Besides it’s genetic, the most important reason is from solarize.   The ingredients that can cause damage to the skin in the sun are well-known ultraviolet rays. Among them, ultraviolet(UVB) can act on the epidermis, which promotes the synthesis of melanin particles in melanocytes, the increase of  melanocytes, and various pigmentation problems.   Therefore, more importantly, the most importantly for us to get rid of the spots on our skin is to do the best sun protection that you can.   What’s more, CARE II believes that there’s a little difference for different skin type, so we’d better to know the skin type first.   There are four basic types of skin: dry, oily, normal and combination skin. Skin type is determined by genetics, though it can be change according to the various internal and external factors.   1. Dry Skin Dry skin feels tight and rough and look dull. The only advantage of dry skin is that it’s not easy to be oily. But mostly you feel the skin is tight and it’s prone to peeling, fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging, because dry skin lacks the lipids that it needs to retain moisture and build a protective shield against external influences.   2. Oily Skin Oily skin is completely opposite with the dry skin and it has a glossy shine and visible pores. Oily skin is prone to greasy feeling, and it’s prone to problems such as enlarged pores and hemorrhoids because of the heightened sebum production.   3. Neutral Skin or Normal Skin Neutral skin is well balanced, neither too oily nor too dry, which is the best skin condition. Maybe the T-zone is a bit oily, but overall sebum and moisture is balanced and not like oily skin or dry skin.   4. Combination Skin As the name suggests, combination sky consists of a mix of skin types. Skin types vary between the T-zone and the cheeks on combination skin, for example, the T-zone is often oily because of the strong oil secretion, which will result in rough skin, thick pores, acnes, but the cheek skin is relatively dry and delicate compared with the T-zone, and there will be dryness, desquamation and even red blood, stains and wrinkles issues if the skin hasn’t be taken care well.   Now you know what kind of skin type you are, right? Here CARE II wants to clarify the advantages and the disadvantages of the four skin types.   Skin Type Advantages Disadvantages Dry Skin Not oil Fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging Oily Skin Moisturize Enlarged pores, acnes Normal Skin Well balanced Easy to be influenced by seasons Combination Skin The cheek skin is delicate Need to take care separately, the T-zone and the cheeks. If not take care carefully, many skin problems will be caused.   You can take care of your skin by the skin type you are.   Besides the reasons that CARE II mentioned above, there are also other reasons, like make-up dirt, stay up late, lack of sleep.   Some tips for you to get spotless skin: 1) Sun Protection-Shade, sunglasses, clothing and hats provide the best protection     -Try best to avoid the sunshine in the midday     -Check the UV index by your phone, if it’s 3 or above, please do sun protection     -Use sunscreen, at least SPF 30+     -Avoid sunlamps and tanning parlours 2) Cleanse Your Skin Cleanly-Remove the makeup thoroughly     -Cleanse your skin cleanly by CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing brush. 3)  Sleep Early and Sleep Well     - It’s not only for your skin health, but also for your body health, extremely important! 4)  Massage your skin    - You can use CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing massager to massage your skin.   Alright, you’ve already known what skin type you are and known how to take care of your pigmentation skin. That’s cool!  
    • Now astrology is far more advanced than it was but there are still few birth charts which give the explanations of angel 222 number. We usually have to surf other sites to find such important information. Nevertheless, planets and houses are usually mentioned and thanks God, they are easy for understanding
