Starlooks Starbox January 2013

Hello Gorgeous!
My Starlooks Starbox for January arrived today! So far I have been really enjoying the products that have been sent for the past two months that I have been a part of this subscription service. So lets see how the third month works out for myself. Lets jump in and see what was sent this month!

- Starlooks 858 Dome Brush
This brush is made from 100% pure, cruelty-free pony hair, and is super soft to the touch. Blends eye shadow and eye liner smoothly for that perfect smokey effect. Use in the corner of the eyes, eye lids, or under the lash line. Also great for packing on pigments or loose shadows. Starlooks retail price is $15.00

- Starlooks Brown Eye Liner

- Starlooks Fancy Diamondline Eye Liner

- Starlooks Cuty Peach Blush Compact

- Abby Rose Designs Beautiful Beaded Green Bracelet
Abby Rose Designs is a handmade jewelry and accessory company. This bracelet is absolutely stunning. I love that it looks like I have a couple of bracelets at one time when in reality it is just one that is wrapped around my wrist. The color is perfect as well considering the color of the year is emerald green! For a limited time of 30 days, beginning February 1st, this bracelet is going to be available on their website and on the Starlooks website for $15.00!

Overall as you can see this month the items sent went way over the $15.00 plus shipping that is paid monthly. Roughly the value of this months box is $58.00! Month by month I continue to be impressed by this company and I am so glad that I found out about this subsription service.

Until next time, take care <3

Square Hue January 2013

Hello Gorgeous!
Hope you dolls had a great time during the holidays! Square Hue's theme for this month is The Arctic Collection. Square Hue is a nail polish subscription service where the company sends three full size nail polishes of .50 oz to keep. Each month the colors sent will be colors that are in style and up to date with today's fashion. The nail polish are 3-free clean formula - does not contain DBP, Formaldehyde, and Toluene and are not tested on animals. This is a monthly subscription service with the price of $21 each month this includes free shipping. So lets jump into the polishes that were sent this month.

- Arctic Frost
This is a sheer glittery nail polish. This would look great on top of any matte or cream colored nail polishes or even ones that are already glittery nail polishes if you want to add some more sparkle to your nails. Such a great nail polish to have in my collection!

- Glacier Skies
This is a cream nail polish. Reminds my of clear blue skies in the mountains. Such a lovely light blue color. Perfect for all of the seasons.

- Midnight Flurries
This is by far my favorite one out of this collection! I cant wait to apply it to my nails this evening. This is a gorgeous medium shade of a dusty blue with glitter specks in it. The glitters seem to be holographic depending on the angle you are looking at it changes the color the glitter specks appear to be. It is just such an awesome shade & right up my alley of colors I would choose on my own.

Overall I am so thrilled with this month's collection. I cant wait to see what future months hold with this company. So far these past two months have been beyond expectations. I truly hope they keep it up because it is just an amazing service to be part of! If you are not signed up with this company I would definitely suggest that you try this company out. They will blow your socks off!

Until next time, take care <3
