August 2015 Starlooks Looks Book

Starlooks sent me their August 2015 Starlooks Looks Book to share with you! If you like what you see, you can sign up for $12/month using this referral link! Each month, you get three brand new, limited edition “Perfect Size” items. (That’s code for mini’s.) What’s that? $12 for MINI’s? You must be joking. BUT WAIT! There’s more! I also got SIXTY DOLLARS in discount codes. Stop the presses. That’s pretty awesome. So now I can try out items and if I love them, I can go get a full-sized version. Or if I hate them, I can buy something completely different!

What’s that? You want my referral link again? Here you go: https://subscriptions.starlooks.com/?refer=57700

For the discount codes, I did have to make three separate purchases because you can only use one code at a time. Since shipping is free…well…that’s fine with me! I ended up ordering some brush cleaner, a brown eyeliner, and a black eyeliner.

Now, for what I actually have in my hot little hands!

I received a full-sized (But Anne, at the beginning of the post, you said it was all small sizes! I know lovely, reader. Aren’t surprises wonderful?) eyeliner brush, a small eyeliner in Brun, and an eyeshadow in Gold Coast.

Let’s take a look at how these things look on my face. I used all three of the products for this look.

Color Club Eternal Beauty Nail Art

{Press Sample}{Purchased By Me}

For this mani, I started with two coats of Color Club Eternal Beauty. Then, I used It Girl Nail Art fashion plate IG 103 to stamp this design using Mundo de Unas Black. If I had to wear one finish for the rest of my life, it would be holo, hands down.

Please see yesterday’s post about my dilemma regarding MdU polishes. I think I’m going to start transitioning back to Konad based simply on the fact that MdU doesn’t disclose ingredients.

I can’t decide if I want to keep using MdU. With all this craziness that’s been happening with Mentality, it’s made me second guess my use of MdU. What do you guys think?? I would love to know some opinions.

Today’s mani starts with two coats of Jolie Polish Beet Down which is a gorgeous beet red jelly polish. I used Mundo de Unas black to stamp this flowery design from It Girl Fashion Plate 102.

Here’s a plain swatch of Jolie Polish Beet Down. Isn’t it lovely?? I love beets, especially in my salads, so obviously I like this polish!
