The June Kat Von D x Allure Beauty Box was fairly good and featured 3 makeup items, 1 item for the face, and 1 mirror. It’s great to have a box with variety but we love this exclusive collab even more. This month’s favorites include the eyeliner and the lip liner. This $15 box is fantastic as the total retail price is about $65.86!

Review: We were really bummed to not get this box! Our credit card got compromised and whoops, they don’t send you an email. In fact, our account didn’t even show the subscription.
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!
Macy’s did it again this month as all inclusions are summer-ready. It’s a well-curated box! We were not able to get the Lookfantastic box this month and it’s really a bummer. Looking at the spoilers, the box actually looked promising and it’s got a good retail value. But Allure’s Kat Von D collab? Swoon!
