Starlooks August 2014

Recommended Posts

Based on the lookbook, I definitely see blush in our futures.

I think fake eyelashes too.

I'm really kind of disappointed they didn't make the blonde's brows more bold. 

 

With that being said, I don't think this is a very exciting look book, and I hope they don't send a black liner. But I sure hope @@sarahtyler is right about blush being in our future. I want all the blushes. A non cream blush will make me a very happy girl!

Not as BOLD as the neon from last month, which is what I expected. I like how they still did some fun looks with neutral colors. I'm hopeful for blush and I personally haven't tried their liquid liner yet so I wouldn't mind that at all. False lashes would be a "meh" but not unwelcome as I do use them from time to time (would totally fit their Dollhouse theme). I'm wondering if we get a nude or light pink lip gloss. Either way, yay August!

Even though I started subbing in December of last year I still feel like a Starlooks newbie sometimes because I haven't tried some of their basic things like mascara, black eyeliners, liquid liners, eyelashes etc. So for me, for the sake of trying all their products, I am pretty open minded. I was wondering if this month would be the customization month launch....I think that would make a lot of people happy. A Neutral month is a good month to do it too! Less box envy that way.

I would love to try their liquid black eyeliner.  I wouldn't be upset over mascara.   I just don't wear false eyelashes and there is a nasty rumor that ipsy is going to put falsies in the august bag & it would be just my luck - lol

 

I am fine with a white eyeliner, a black liquid eyeliner, blush, lipgloss.  That would make me happy.

I would LOVE white eyeliner. Talk about the best base for colored eye shadows/pigments! *I am crazy into indie loose shadows right now and white bases are totally my best friend for dramatic colors*

Hooray for blush!!! Starlooks is my favorite blush formula!!! Fingers crossed we get some.

 

I don't know if they'd do a black & a white eyeliner in one box. They already did that last June so I can't imagine them doing both in the same box again. However, having said that, I love the pen liner!!! It's my favorite.

 

I can't wait to see what all we get. I'm kind of glad it's a more subdued month. I loved the bright colors from last month, but I love how Starlooks changes it up each month. Something different than the month before!

I hope that there will be blush! I especially would like one of their powder blushes! Anything else in the box would be a bonus at that point. I would love a light highlighting powder too, but since they gave us the cream blush that could be used in a similar way a little while ago, that probably will not be happening. It would be amazing if there was a brush.

they also gave us that HUGE container of highlighting powder a few months ago - it came in light and bronze.  I got the light version.

I dont love the lookbook and really do not want false eyelashes. I never tried their mascara so I would not mind and I really would looooooooooooove powder blush like the rest of you gals.

 

I did order their liquid eyeliner pen (the one we did not ever get in their past box) with my 50% order and I really like it. I would not mind getting another one since its a staple.

I am excited no matter what it is!  LIke most of you, I would LOVE some blush -- mine is a tiny little loose lump in the bottom of the container that I keep pushing around with the brush, hoping to get some!  Happy day if we get blush.  Could definitely live without the fake lashes, but the rest of it seems interesting.  Want to try new stuff, want to try new stuff (I just keep repeating that LOL).

@@Psquared they've mentioned they're redoing the loyalty rewards program, so we might not be getting a code or anything like that now.

 

But technically yes, I believe this should be loyalty reward month.

thanks for letting me @@ChullBird I totally missed that!!

 

I guess we will see what happens this month :) I wonder if they will do nothing at all or give us something as a transition period to their new program...

It sounded like it was only for the first half of the year and not happening anymore. I don't know if anyone knows for sure, though.

I talked to them on the phone last month because I was curious about their birthday boxes (July was my birthday so of course they'd stop birthday boxes in JULY!!!)

 

They are changing over to a points system this month.  Info about it will be in our August boxes.  We will get points for our birthday month, for referrals, for things we purchase, & as part of the loyalty program.  We can use these points to buy what we want from the website.  I don't know specific details like how many points we get for what or how many points equal $1, but they are going to a point system.  

 

Part of me is nervous because point systems can be fabulous (go Birchbox!) or awful (Ipsy anyone?) so it will be interesting to see how it all plays out.  However, Starlooks has some of the best customer service out there & they really listen to their customers so I'm hoping the point system is a good thing.  We'll have to wait for our boxes to see what it's all about.

    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.
