Starlooks Gem Pencil in Ultra Turquoise

The Product

The Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil was featured in Boxycharm's October 2014 box.  On the Starlooks website it retails for $16 which is only $5 cheaper than the monthly cost of Boxycharm.  Although eyeliners are frequently included in monthly subscription boxes, this liner was a pleasant surprise in terms of color, longevity, and pigmentation.  The color I received was Ultra Turquoise.  It's gorgeous.

The Function

According to the Starlooks site, these pencils can be used as liners or eye bases.  The gem pencil has a metallic finish with micro-glitter but is smooth and versatile.  When I first saw the color as I opened my Boxycharm box, I was not thrilled to be honest.  A turquoise eyeliner??  But this liner has a silvery sheen to it that just brightens my eyes like you wouldn't believe.  I love it as an inner corner highlight as well.  It wears like a dream and doesn't irritate or tug on your eye during application.

The Style

This is your typical pencil eyeliner.  I would have loved it even more had it been a twist-up design.  Every time I need to sharpen an eyeliner I feel like I'm throwing product away and that's never good when you love your makeup!  For that reason I'm not a huge fan of the design, but that won't stop me from enjoying this eyeliner!

The Bottom Line

I'm thrilled this was included in a Boxycharm box.  I love being introduced to new brands/products I never would have known about otherwise.  Would I go out of my way to spend the $16 to get another one of these gem pencils?  Probably not - but I will definitely treasure what I have received and look forward to any future products from this line in a future Boxycharm!
