So, here it is guys! A run down of what brushes are to be included in Starlook’s brush set. I heard through the grapevine that this will most likely be available for purchase on their site the middle of August. No word yet on the price of the entire set (some of these brushes don’t appear to be available on Starlook.com just yet,
but I will link to the ones that are and include their price)
A little about Starlooks as far as their cosmetics and brushes; I first heard about Starlooks when they launched their Starbox, I was still getting my blog established so I started reviewing them just last month which was their third box, you can see this month’s box HERE and June’s box HERE. Their monthly boxes include 3-4 full sized cosmetic pieces from their collection for only $15 and $1.95 shipping. If you do decide to sign up, let them know you heard about it first from TheRosySnail 🙂
I loved their cosmetics but I received a brush in my June Starbox that blew my socks off- which leads us here- to a first look at this fabulous set 🙂
I don’t usually show pictures this large, but I wanted you all to be able to see the details in these brushes.
The 15 piece set comes in a vinyl case, or “roll” that neatly snaps shut with a magnetic snap closure. I forgot to get a picture of it all rolled up, but I’ll get one posted on Facebook & Twitter soon 🙂 It has a white version of the Starlooks logo on the bottom right corner. The vinyl is super soft and has a faux leather feel to it.
I’m just going to start with the smaller brushes and work my way to the bigger ones. From right to left you have:
Fine Liner 829 which retails for $12
Lip 701 which retails for $14
Lux Brow Comb 846 which retails for $9
& Slanted Liner 824 which retails for $15
Skipping around just a little bit, these are going to be more of the eye brushes I would use for laying down color.
Delux Angel Shader 830 which retails for $15
Small Chisel 817 which retails for $15
Chisel Pointed Fluff 808 which retails for $15
Medium Dome fluff 802 which retails for $15
Medium Precision 812 which retails for $15
Small Precision 813 which retails for $15, this is actually the brush that was included in June’s Starbox so I included to show the size difference between the small and medium precision brushes.
Pointed Fluff 810 which retails for $15
Camouflage #8 (916) which retails for $15 (top)
Deluxe Shading 841- this one is not up for individual sale on their site, as of yet.
These last three bigger brushes are not posted on the site yet. No word on whether they will be exclusive to this set or if they will be available individually at a later date. One top is the Ace Powder 925, then Blush 903 & last Angle Blush & Shader 926.
So, I haven’t busted these out yet for a full face,(just played with a few) but now that I’ve photographed them and shared with you guys, I’ll be on that right away! I was really impressed with the brushes individually and as a group- there was a brush for everything & while I’ll be adding to my Starlook’s brush collection soon, this set along would be perfect for at home and professional shoot application.
Just like Starlook’s cosmetic line, these are cruelty free as well. I talked to Marci from the Starlooks team because like most people, when I hear that brushes are cruelty free, I expect synthetic brushes, not real hair. She got back to me right away with more information, “The animals that are providing the hair receive a nice, gentle, fresh shave, and all the hair is preserved and handled with care. Just the same as a person getting a haircut and donating to locks of love 😉 The animals are also not farmed and are treated with much love. In no way are the hairs ever yanked, or removed improperly. We take a lot of pride in providing this type of tool to customers.” She also told me on a separate occasion about how the hairs used for these brushes aren’t dyed, bleached or altered like so many of the other companies. So, you can expect no bleeding colors when you wash your brushes and they retain their original soft lusher- something I can vouch for first hand.
One of my favorite things about this brush collection as a while is that these brush handles are some of the longest in my collection, that makes them easy to find in my organizer and it gives me a lot of control during application. Aside from their longer than average handle, these brushes are super soft and because of that, I find that they help manage the amount of fall out I get from some of my more crumbly cosmetics.
I’ll be doing many follow-ups on this brush set and other brushes from Starlooks. If you’ve been thinking about investing in some quality brushes but weren’t sure where to start with all the big names being bounced around, I say, try just one Starlooks brush before you decide. I can’t say enough great things about these brushes.
If you’re like me and can hardly wait for the next Starbox, check out Alexandra Butler’s Signature Red Lip Set. She’s a fabulous makeup artist who recently partnered with Starlooks to put together a trio to help you achieve the perfect sultry red lip. The set is specially priced at $30 (shipping is free!) and it’s only available until August 15th.
Let them know TheRosySnail sent you 😉
