Looking good! I always look forward to this box and enjoy the variety of products they send.
Each box comes with a mini magazine that gives tips on how to use the products, how much the full-sized product costs, and where to purchase, along with discount codes!
Everything in the box! My glossy red box was wrapped in plastic and my products were snuggled in white tissue paper and shredded squiggles for packing.
Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast Styling & Finish Spray ($15) is one of those items that I mostly love so I am happy to get it in a box! I am not adept at styling my hair so maybe I need more practice, but when I spray this in my hair it makes it fly up in weird directions and although my hair looks textured and full, it also looks like I just spent time in a wind tunnel.
Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream ($18) is a gentle unscented moisturizer that has a slight cooling effect on my skin. It features a blend of six different oils from Africa, such as marula and baobab, plus hyaluronic acid to draw water to the skin. The texture is nice and it was absorbed almost instantly by my dry skin.
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye ($7.40) has several moisturizing oils, along with plant-based squalane, lavender essential oil, and Butcher’s Broom, which may help reduce inflammation. I was happy to see it was free of perfume, although it does have a light, natural lavender scent and quickly disappeared into my skin once applied.
Beautyblender Micro Mini ($9) Like the original Beautyblender, but in a smaller size to get into those nose crevices and under the eyes. Make sure to rinse it in water before use so it will absorb water and not your makeup.
The Beautyblender will double in size when it gets wet. Just rinse when you’re finished and eventually it will shrink back to its original size when it dries. I have a hard time spreading my It Cosmetics under eye concealer but this baby sponge did the job well!
WOW, a full-sized Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush ($29)!!!
Isn’t it so pretty? They actually used clay from the banks of the Amazon River, which is supposed to nourish dry skin while minimizing shine in those with oily skin.
Allure sent one of four different shades, and mine is called Blushing Bride, a plumy rose color. It looked very nice on my cheeks and lasted quite a long time.
Here I had to apply several passes with the blush. It is light but buildable.
My September Allure Beauty Box had a value of $78.40! This box was perfect for me and my beauty needs. I thought Allure provided a well-rounded selection of products from different beauty categories this month. I love moisturizers, the full-sized blush was adorable, and the hair spray dared me to give the bedhead look a try. I enjoy Allure Beauty Box and like that they include mainstream and indie brands and I look forward to getting it each month!
