any thoughts?

 

Looks like we might get some false lashes, or a dark liquid liner?

that is what I am thinking, @TonyaBeans. We got falsies in september, but they were natural looking ones (for false eyelashes - lol), so this time around, they might be dramatic. I hope we get a nice liquid eyeliner - but we got the black one last year. It almost looks like a metallic liquid eyeliner, which if it is (and a new product), I will be so excited to have!

 

Outside of that, I got nuthin else...

I'm a little meh on the looks book this month.  It will be fun to see what we get though - I am thinking with an eye look that bold they must be sending something pretty interesting/unique at least.

Not overly excited about this month's Lookbook:(  To me it looks like fake lashes and some kind of eye decal or tattoo sticker like things or possibly a very metallic liner.  I am hoping for the latter, not a fan of the eyliner "tattoo" sticker like things.  My daughter has used things like that for drama club events, and halloween but unless you are clubbing or raving in NYC not real practical for us "soccerMoms" lol.  HOPING for "tool" like a brush but please no eyelasher curlers, or eyeliner brushes haven't we already gotten like 2 slanted liner brushes in the last year to 18 months?

it's a good box!!  yeah

 

 

 

 

cherub tender gloss - this is another "marsela" color - I like it a lot and I love tender glosses!

myth gem eye liner - I've purchased this last year and am almost done with it, so I am glad to get another one.  This is a deep charcoal grey eyeliner that has a slight shimmer

duet fan brush - SWEET!!  thank you for another brush!

I'm not a huge fan of this month's box, only because I've purchased similar products recently. I'm actually really looking forward to the change in box format if they start allowing you to customize. This way I can ensure that I won't be getting 3 fan brushes from different places each month and I can plan my subs so that they don't overlap as much.

It's weird to say this...but I'm really really over brushes. I'm swimming in them. I have at least 4 fan brushes already (and I don't know how to use them!) At least starlooks makes nice brushes.

 

AND YAAAAAAAAAAS!!! Gem pencils, I've been wanting myth for ages and the tender gloss looks nice too. So apparently not even close to as bad as I thought at all.

Are we all getting the same colors? I am so excited for cherub and myth now that I've seen them. I have a mighty need.

the card states those colors specifically, so I am assuming that everyone is getting them

Ya know, starlooks really needs to do something about the colors of their products online. They're not really accurate at all. On their site the Cherub tendergloss looks ugly and I would never buy it...ever. But it looks very pretty in the swatch above and every other one I looked up.

 

In other news, my box won't be here until tomorrow...and I won't get it until after work and I'm so sad on the inside.

Does Starlooks usually send out a tool with every box? Even though some may be dupes, it's a great way to supplement my brush collection without spending any extra money. Even the 'affordable' brushes are at least $10.

I am so officially in love with cherub and myth. I got my box last night and am wearing both today.

I love getting brushes, but could take or leave this one in particular.

Finally got my box today....late. Cherub is perfect. I'm going to wear it pretty much all the time.

 

I second this. It just adds a nice subtle sheen to my natural lips, but also somehow colour corrects them. The result is incredible. I need more of these tender glosses in my life!

They have too many satins. I hate satins. I'm going to buy all the glosses though. All.of.them.

 

Seriously, they're in my cart right now.

    • 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.
