Starlooks July 2014 (SPOILERS)

Recommended Posts

Oh my gosh, the July Lookbook was just posted! I am SO excited! I hope everyone is ready for neon/bold colors! I am seriously freaking out that half the lookbook photos are black light photos too! If we get blacklight/glow makeup I will seriously scream with joy.

I am definitely looking forward to this box after seeing the looksbook... though not really wanting the orange lipstick, I'd prefer the pink color in the two-toned lip look.

It should be interesting to see what we get, since it can be so hard to tell from the Looksbook!

Yeah, I hear ya, the lookbook is always a tease. I actually would be happy with either lipstick color as my hair is orange right now and Its a color I lack in terms of lipstick but the pink would be great too. I just hate the looooong wait till we find out! Maybe July will just fly by or something because I'm far more excited about this month than months past and I'm gonna need it!

I have no idea what they will put in here,as when they put in a palette, they don't give you much of anything else. Lipstick? I see several versions - so maybe we get a palette, a lipstick and a sample of that blacklight/glow that @ mentioned? I seriously do not know what this is - please explain about this blacklight/glow you speak of with such passion - lol

 

I bet you that gold shadow is our is our gold eyeliner cream we got for June. And the black eyeliner is from March (which I got rid of - lol)

 

So, I am leaning more now to an eyeshadow palette, because those colors - I do not remember starlooks sending out anything recently in those shades - plus lipsticks, maybe false eyelashes.

 

that is my guess :D

To my knowledge Starlooks does not have a black light/glow line of cosmetics which is why I will be surprised if we get such an item. BUT I love UV reactive makeup with a passion and a girl can hope after seeing the black light photos in their lookbook. I own a few theatrical palettes from Ben Nye, Kryolan, and Wolfe that I use for various event or stage makeup. These photos were from the Electric Run 5k that I did last year.

 

I was also thinking the same thing about the yellow, its probably a "here's other things you can do with last month's yellow" tie in.

I love the lookbook this month.  The blush/highligher from last month was amazing, and I'd love a bronzer to go with it, but I'm most excited for that orangey lipstick.  Starlooks lip liners are my absolute favorite, and I'm currently obsessed with orange lipstick, so I'd love to see them come out with one so that my trendy color can last past a sip of water.

 

All of the girls in the book have heavy eye makeup in a really wide array of colors, so if we hadn't recently gotten one of those five color palates I'd be expecting one of those.  Maybe this is a month for glitter or pigment?

I just think those eyeshadows are too "smooth" for a glitter. It could be a pigment

I am leaning towards a palette - Hong Kong - because of the Asian-American label of their group - you can see it has the purples and blues, and it has a black eyeshadow at the end.   They have, in the past, given out eyeshadow palettes several times in a row, those were 4-quads, with removable eyeshadows.    I would really like that - as a 4 eyeshadow palette might give us more products!

Interesting! Given the name and the colors it could be ones used in some of the pics!  There are so many pigments and eyeliner pots that also seem like possibilities, but that definitely looks like it could be the stuff used on girl in the look you posted earlier. Also, it specifically shows the one girl with a lipstick, so maybe this and a lipstick? The looksbook description says the band helped pick "a few items" for the box, so maybe if it is that palette we could still get two other items instead of one, that'd be nice. ^_^

it would be nice!!  I look at last year, and when they did the November box, they had 3 items - the orion eyeliner, eyeliner brush & a 5-palette.  So, they have been generous before.  Since this is a "special" box, I hope we get 3 items!

Am I the only person that wants this neon trend to just *die*. Like a horrible painful death.

Neon is *way* too '80s for me.  I *hated* the '80s.  Grunge era over here, thankyouverymuch. 

 

Huh.  I just noticed that the Tokyo palette we received in April is still not available in the shop.  If it *is* a palette month, it's possible it's something completely new.

I laughed at the description of the band - punk rock.  The punk rockers that I grew up listening to would not have been caught dead in those outfits!!  Those styles are from the New Wave era (which I did love - I love just about ever era :D )

I thought of that as well - I just thought that since the description stated that the musicians picked items that they would wear, I interpreted that to be an existing items.  Could be something new - but I love that Hong Kong palette!!

Lol, Neon or not, I doubt I'll be disappointed. I certainly don't wear neon colors often but they are fun for me occasionally, I sure wouldn't mind that Hong Kong palette (or any other) one bit either. I'm pretty dang open minded to colors though. My *typical* day to day is certainly more of a grungy (actually more on the gothic side) look too.
Truthfully, although not everyone would like the selection, I really do want the orange lipstick.....I want to play with orange/red/gold/black variations.

I was born in the 80's and I LOVE the 80's, I just think that neon (and a few other things) ought to stay there.

 

Grungy librarian hobo chic is more my thing.

Oh man! That Hong Kong palette needs to hop into my make up drawer right now! If it's not in this box I will need to get it with my next loyalty code! Love it!

I need that Hong Kong palette in my life too.

 

I agree that the yellow/gold seen in several of the lookbook photos is our gold liner from June. It definitely looks like we're getting some eye shadow and vibrant lip color. I love this photo set so so much!

I love the loobook.... Even if it is bold for some to use all at once, I think a color here and there with neutrals will be awesome.

I am an orange/coral lipstick kinda of gal so I would be happy with that. A lip palette would be fun.

 

It is so funny that they picked this pop "punk" band from LA since I know of them because they just bought tons of pieces from my best friends jewelry clothing company here in Montreal. They are really nice girls but super funky and hate boring so if they even had a say for the box it will definitely be all color all bold.

 

Very excited to see what we get!! though i am still waiting for my June box. lol.

 

I am wondering if the lipstick shown is the tendergloss pooh bear, which I own and swatched in the tendergloss discussion.

Not sure if this has been posted before, but I asked about my birthday box and this is how they replied:

 

We are actually in the process of changing over our loyalty and birthday programs to a new and improved points program that ALL subscribers will be able to take advantage of. We will announce that via email as soon as it has launched. We sincerely appreciate your business!

 

This would have been my first birthday box so I'm a little disappointed, but I am hoping that the points program works out alright.  How do you ladies think it will work?

This concerns me....one of the reasons I love Starlooks is that they DON'T have a points system like Ipsy and Birchbox....I really really hope they don't mirror other subs.

I also think its pretty awful to start a new loyalty program and kill it within the year it was created, especially as so many loyal subscribers truly love it!

*sigh* I suppose as Starlooks gets bigger they will have to make more changes  to keep up with others. But I really liked Starlooks the way it was!

The birthday thing is SUPER disappointing *hug*

I know.  It's my birthday on Sunday & I've been SO looking forward to my Starlooks birthday box this month.

 

I guess I don't mind the points system if it's done in a way that mirrors what they have already done.  For example the loyalty gifts have been $35 in free stuff.  Maybe they'll give us 35 points making each point a dollar or something along those lines to use to buy whatever we want in the shop.  I'm okay with that as long as I get to pick what I want.  Same with the birthday gift.  If they let me pick my own birthday present I'm good with that.  I just hope we get something.  It would be sad to not get a birthday gift this month & then have them roll out the birthday points in August if you know what I mean.  Not that we "deserve" birthday boxes to begin with.  They're just so generous that I look forward to it every year.  Starlooks is one of my favorites & they've always done well with everything they've done.  I have faith that their point system will work well.

I like your outlook! <3 I'm going to try and be positive about it too. Starlooks hasn't 'burned' me in the ways that some other subs have so I really should just wait and see before getting too anxious about it.
