In a world where monthly subscription boxes are the craze, pro beauty brand Starlooks has modernized makeup membership. It just rolled out in August and yes – it is different than your typical subscription box.
It’s called the LooksBook. Starlooks realized the lack in the beauty membership market. Most services throw a bunch of random beauty samples in a cheap bag and send them on to its members. There’s usually no tips and tricks included on how to actually use what is sent. Most of the time, the products are forgotten about or unused – much like that magazine you receive every month and toss to the side, only to be discarded during your next cleaning binge.
The idea behind the Starlooks LooksBook is to supply the makeup, but also educate its user. Each month, a professional team curates 3 small sized beauty products housed in festive book-style packaging. Incorporated with each monthly appropriate makeup selection is a detailed card describing how to easily achieve the look. The book is not overly chunky and light enough fit in a medium sized handbag for on-the-go application. Of course, you can always remove the goodies themselves and display the pretty book on your vanity instead!
Some things to know:
- The cost is $12/month.
- Though the makeup items included are small, they usually contain about ¾ of a full-size Starlooks product. These are considered the Starlooks “Perfect Size” Cosmetics.
- Each LooksBook has a theme that is current with makeup trends (i.e.: you won’t receive a dark, vampy lipstick in the middle of Summer).
Some standout Starlooks goodies from previous LooksBooks include the Tropic/Ritz Highlighter and Blush Duo (August’s LooksBook). Instead of using Tropic (the gold shade) as a highlighter, try it as a shadow on your inner corners – it’s seriously gorgeous and lights up the eyes like you wouldn’t believe. Agave Eyeshadow Duo from September’s LooksBook is a stylish twist on Fall makeup, providing a matte plum and forest green that pairs lovely together. These are just some examples of product you’ll receive in your trio.
Starlooks LooksBook is perfect for beauty enthusiasts who seek not only high-quality makeup, but some direction on the best way to use them as well. It’s also ideal for makeup realists who understand the impossibility of getting through a makeup product before it expires.
