It’s the Macy’s Beauty Box vs Allure Beauty Box vs Lookfantastic showdown!

Macy’s Beauty Box vs Allure Beauty Box vs Lookfantastic

BOX BASICS: All four subscriptions are about $15 per month, so it’s easy to draw comparisons. All three of these beauty boxes also ship out 4-9 samples.

CUSTOMIZATION & VARIATION: There aren’t really any customization options for these boxes. Everyone typically receives the exact same items, although sometimes Allure Beauty Box has variations.


Macy’s Beauty Box ($15 per month!) 

Items: 

Total Value: About $41

This subscription always includes a cute bag plus a $5 coupon, and that’s already a big advantage. This month’s curation is definitely in our list of favorites because it included Dior lip balms which were really worth sampling, even if they were tiny!

Of Note: Includes $5 coupon for Macy’s Beauty

Allure Beauty Box ($15 per month!)

Items:  

Total Value: About $78.65

Allure always sends a nice variety of products, and even though this box had several makeup items, they all served very different purposes and they were put together perfectly. We’re so pleased with the brands that Allure sends each month, too!

Lookfantastic Beauty Box (~$22 per month!)

Items:  

Total Value: About $114.56

Our favorites from the February box were definitely the two lip products. The scrub and balm are great winter rescue items. The skincare items are also really good, and Lookfantastic continues to impress with their focus on introducing me to UK and European brands.

Of Note: While this box is $22 per month it has free worldwide shipping and if you subscribe to a year you’ll get it at $15 per month (plus you don’t have to pay upfront!). Always a mini Elle magazine plus a nice mix of UK beauty brands. Sizes are smaller but if you don’t live in the US & are willing to pay for a year upfront, this is a great choice!

Every box we received this month was awesome! Macy’s has been recently doing a good job in keeping up with other beauty boxes, while we appreciate that Lookfantastic came to the rescue for winter lip issues! However, Allure is still clearly the winner because of the variety and quality of the items they send. That being said, the battle of these three gorgeous boxes is getting exciting and we’re looking forward for next month’s offerings!

    I tried to sign up for Macy’s but could not get the order to go through was so bummed . I guess it is ok cause I found Ricky’s Cult Classics for less and they seem to have a good make–up box.sorry Macy’s looked forward to it then let down.
    Look box I am not sure about come from out of country so wonder how long it takes to get

      I review the Lookfantastic box every month and it arrives around the middle of the month. I just got my March box yesterday and will be posting the review soon!
