ALLURE Beauty Box!

Purchased by me

So I let my subscription to Allure Magazine lapse and when I finally got around to renewing, I had the option of renewing AND getting the Allure Beauty Boxso I thought why not? I have to say I’m impressed with all that is included in the box for just $10. The regular price of the box is $15.

The products in this month’s box are a mix of Allure editors’ staples and new discoveries that have earned counter space in their bathrooms. Each box comes with a booklet detailing the items included and why the Allure Beauty Editors selected them. I think the box I received was a mix of February and March?

Let’s take a peek:

Tarte Tartist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in OG $20 – I really like the formula of these liquid lipsticks but I’m just not crazy about matte lipsticks on my old lips. Also OG is an opaque lilac shade that makes me look like a cast member of The Walking Dead. I’ll be putting this in a giveaway. Enter TARTEALLURE at checkout for 20% off. Exclusions apply.

ModelCo Metallic Eyeshadow Trio $18 – this trio is totally gorgeous! All three shades are shimmers: a champagne pink, bronzey brown and burgundy. The lightest shade makes a lovely inner corner or brow highlight, the bronze/brown on the lid and the burgundy shade looks great on the lid or in the crease. The trio is nicely pigmented and performs well.

Mamonde Rose Water Toner $23 (sample size)- this toner is refreshing yet still hydrates. Most toners leave my skin feeling stripped, but leaves my skin softer and moisturized. Enter MAMONDE20 at checkout for 20% off.

Wander Beauty Mile High Club Mascara $26 – this is the brands newest mascara and I appreciate that Allure would include such a new product, but unfortunately, I don’t care for it. The formula is very wet and I don’t like the squeeze tube as a delivery system.

BrowGal Instant Brow Gel $22 – I was excited to try this and it didn’t disappoint! My left brow is very sparce and this does a great job of filling it in with tiny microfibers. This will definitely find a permanent place in my makeup bag.

Amika Soulfood Nourishing Mask $28 – this hair mask is lightweight and easy to spread but more importantly, it is full of hydrating ingredients like jojoba oil, panthenol and sea-buckhorn seed oil. It makes my hair super soft and gets rid of flyaways. My hair is colored but not in bad shape so using this once a month is fine for me. The scent is a lovely floral.

Acure Seriously Soothing Night Oil (sample size) $12.99 – there are 10 hydrating oils packed into this little jar including sweet almond oil, jojoba and blue tansy (hence the color). It’s delightfully light and soothing. Enter ACURE19 at checkout for 25% off.

Also included in the box is a white envelope-type vinyl makeup up bag. At first glance, I dismissed this as cheap and not useable. Mistake! This actually holds a lot and the snaps are heavy duty. Some people got red bags and some got black. I got white.

Even though there were a few hits and misses this month, these 7 count ’em 7 products were well worth the $10 I paid. The total value of the box is $122! The brow gel and eyeshadow trio are worth the cost of the box for me!

  1. I also subscribe but did not get some of the products you mentioned. Instead I received a Belief moisterizer which I’ve received in a number of boxes, the squalene oil, the blue tansy which has a rollerball application which I thought was odd, a au naturale multistick which is nice, the rose water, and the hair mask which doesn’t work on my fine hair. No Tarte 😢. since I am receiving more products that I don’t/can’t use every month I cancelled. 😢

  2. I stopped my Allure subscription but a box would probably tempt me to reorder it. I’m using a Wander mascara with a curved brush that I got from a Boxycharm box and I like it though I don’t know if I’d buy it. It’s nice though to see some different brands in the Allure box.

    This looks like a really good Allure box! I have several things from Mamonde, and really love what I have tried from them!

  4. I wasn’t crazy about the Wander Mascara either, but I am dying to try something from Mamonde and 20% off is very nice!

  7. This was actually a pretty good box/bag. I like that little eye shadow trio.

  8. That looks like a great sub box!
