It’s another great box for this month, as it contains some real gems like the contour palette and the lip pencil. This was a great choice of items for a romantic Valentines Day look!
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!

The glam bag focused on a lot of makeup, curated for a red carpet moment! The breast petals can be a little random but it fits the red carpet glam theme. The pouch can be used as a makeup kit or a casual clutch. The liquid lipstick is a really vibrant red that can easily make anyone stand out. It’s smudge proof and long-wearing. The mascara works effectively, and the beauty blender is great to use with the setting powder for the under eyes. This is really impressive!
For this round, our clear winner is Allure as it provided practical beauty items. Lookfantastic is still great value-wise and its contents could be go-to products for a romantic date night look. Macy’s just keeps getting better and that’s worth noting too. We love the competition between these three boxes, and it ensures us that we get high-quality and great products every month!
