Allure Beauty Box is a monthly beauty subscription service that sends 5 deluxe sized product samples with a value of at least $50 and is curated by the editors of Allure Magazine, who choose and test the products themselves. It’s $15 a month and if you sign up for a year-long subscription, you will pay for 10 boxes and get 2 more boxes for free. Refer a friend and if they sign up, you will receive a full-sized Mally Volumizing Mascara!
I love the variety of beauty items that come in this box! There’s something for everyone – Korean beauty, clean beauty, and traditional beauty items were all in my November box!
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.
My November Allure Beauty Box! Please note that if you sign up for November’s box, the Allure website shows different contents than what I received, and includes a mix of current items and items that were sent in past boxes. Allure generally sends box variations anyways, and this is what I received in my November box.
Hey Honey Good Morning Honey Silk Facial Serum ($15) can be used as a moisturizer, under your regular moisturizer, or before makeup application. Some of the ingredients are aloe, honey, and jojoba oil, and it had a light scent. It absorbed quickly but I can’t say if it made a big difference in the look of my makeup.
Moda Unicorn Crease Brush ($3?) I have a lot of very nice makeup brushes but this one makes me smile every time I use it!
Look at these bristles, they look like they are made of magical unicorn hair, but they are synthetic! No unicorns were harmed in the making of this brush! I used the brush to apply my base color, then used it to apply shade to my crease, and finally used it as a blending brush and it worked well in all departments.
Juice Beauty Crayon in Malibu ($22) Yes, a full-sized lippie!
Malibu is described as a nude pink and gets its pigment from plants. It’s rather sheer and left my lips moisturized, like a tinted lip balm. I also tried it over lip liner for a darker effect. Swatched below.
Plus this variation includes:
Too Cool For School All-In-One Egg Mellow Cream ($10.80) is from Korea and can be used day or night to help soften and tighten skin. Egg extract is in here, along with collagen and niacinamide. It has a pleasant spicy sweet floral scent and absorbed quickly.
Too Cool For School Egg Cream Mask Hydration ($6) Yay, another K-beauty product! This time we get the moisturizer in mask form, for extra hydration. I like to kick my feet up and watch a sitcom while I wear something like this. I tried watching mysteries but then scared myself when I went to take it off. Coconut water adds an extra level of moistness.
Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Eye Lifting Balm ($19.20) I am always on the search for a good eye cream. I appreciate that this one is free of fragrance and features hyaluronic acid to draw water to the skin. It can also be used around the lips!
I also received a doucce shadow for a previously received palette. I wonder if this is the last of the additional shadows, since Allure has moved on to a different sign-up offer.
doucce Freematic Eyeshadow Mono in Bailey ($10) Hmm, blue eyeshadow? I wasn’t so sure about this, although this shimmery shade is absolutely lovely. I’m of a certain age, but I wore it anyways. Nobody laughed at me.
I used this in the crease and blended liberally (thanks magical unicorn brush!) and paired it with black eyeliner and the lip crayon. It took me back to my high school days in Southern California.
Here are the shadow and lip crayon swatched on my arm. This is one swipe of each, and the shadow is buildable, while the lip crayon just felt heavier the more I added to my lips.
As usual, I really enjoyed my Allure Beauty Box! I always have fun trying the items in here, and I like that they have items good for all ages. November’s box had a value of around $86, which is just amazing! My favorite item was the brush, it just makes me happy, and I look forward to seeing if the eye cream works any miracles.
