Meeega hype about this month's Starbox. My FB was full of Nylon Pink this and Nylon Pink that- all kinds of promo for this box. I was super excited for it to arrive!
Here is what showed up in my hot little hands over the weekend. But before I get started, check out the left sidebar for a referral link to sign up. I've not had a bum box yet and each item is full-sized- for $15 it's a killer deal.
Now on to the box goodies, woohoo!
This month's bag opened to reveal a fun black and hot pink box with silver tie. I loved the custom look and I usually keep the boxes for necklace storage or to resend small gifts. This was was cute.
You lift off the lid and there's a promo shot of Nylon Pink in some bright makeup posing all fanceh like.
Here's the box as you lift the promo card and open the tissue. I always love the suprise element- as in "whatcha get?"....in this case it's a lipstick, a lip pencil, an eye liner, and an eyeshadow- with surprise crystal of course!
Adding this little guy to my crystals from Starlooks-
Now to get to the products. The lipstick is a flaming super orange called "Pooh Bear". The formula is creamy and soft with a huge amount of payoff. I really like it.
The eyeshadow is a cool toned shade called "Traffic Yellow". It's a nice shimmery shade that leans gold more than sunflower.
The two pencils both have a nice soft texture as well- you won't drag these on your lips or lids. The two I received were the salmon pink lip shade "Tipsy" which had Nylon Pink on the pencil (nice touch) and the liner of "Blue Chili" a sweet cornflower blue.
Nice imprint- anything specialty packaging I appreciate.
SO nice how the actual products match the ends of the pencils- I never like it when I think it's going to be a certain color based on the packaging and it applies like a total stranger. These match what is on the pencil- a great factor in these pencils. Both were smooth and didn't crumble or need overlay to be opaque. One stroke did it.
Here are swatches of all the goodies! I just applied them to my hand without prepping (i.e. primers, etc). I photographed them indoors (more warm light), direct light, and some goofy artistic attempt at both (uh, yeah).

Total value of this box
Pooh Bear lipstick, $18.00
Tipsy Lip pencil, $14.00
Blue Chili liner, $12.00
Traffic Yellow eyeshadow, $12.00
Total: $56.00 (if you bought these items at Starlooks)
I'd also like to mention that Starlooks is created using a private label manufacturer with Modern Basics- which means they use Modern Basics' products and put Starlooks' name on them. I don't mind per se as this happens (i.e. B*tch Slap and Ladyburd) but I thought it would be worth mentioning.
Overall, I love my Starbox and I find it edgy and a fun surprise. If you've not heard of Nylon Pink before, here's a YouTube vid of one of their songs. I'd never heard of them prior to Starlooks advertising this box- the only song I liked was this one. Tell me your thoughts on this month's box!!

Have a great day,
P.S. My favorite part about this whole review is that I've been calling the eyliner "Blue Chili" which I kept thinking was a weird name. I look at this post-edit and realize it says "Blue Chill'. You've got to be kidding me. I swear I am the queen of typos. Oh look, I sure am, there's my crown. *face palm*
