Subscription: Allure Beauty Box
$15 box/month. Hitting that link above or here takes off $5 off your first box.
What to Expect:
Allure states that it is the only “editor-curated” beauty box. Every month subscribers will receive [Allure] editors’ favorite beauty products.
I have been getting Allure on and off depending on the spoilers. I always meant to do the reviews but I had not completed them. For some reason I just came to the conclusion that I can do an Allure unboxing instead since I usually buy Allure because there is usually just one item that makes the box for me and I squirrel away the other stuff as add on gifts (or “me” gifts). But in truth I usually squirrel all of it :/
For example, I got September’s Allure Beauty Box solely for the MAC lip. I heart MAC lippies.
Sit Down and Get Comfortable:
Here is a first peek!
My Hero Item:
I have been always obsessed by MAC lippies (and basically almost everything about the brand). I might be showing my age but MAC usually delivers long lasting color payoff. And MAC is one of the few brands that gives you a free lippy for exchange of 6 MAC empties.
For me to channel my inner Gwen Stefani.
This is a highly praised item but I have not been personally impressed by this brand. I am going to put it in my facial pile and will eventually get to it.
I personally think Drunk Elephants are scary why make one a brand name? Why get an elephant drunk in the first place? That is a lot of booze and/or fermented food. I did not major in marketing and this brand is doing very well so what do I know about drunk elephants.
I am wondering whether I can use the adhesive for loose glitter tattoos. Because glitter tatoo glue is expensive.
Talk about out of the box Pnut.
Watching YouTube videos make me want to put on false lashes at events. Whenever one of my beloved YouTubers does not wear falsies, I notice. Then I want to wear them but then I see Eva Longoria without lashes and she has none because she uses them constantly. Maybe at the next upcoming wedding. They look so lovely. And fluffy.
What lovely and fluffy eyelashes you have Pnut.
For laundry spot cleaning. Don’t ask me if it works as I attack stains with a cocktail of Blue Dawn, hairspray, dry shampoo, and actual stain removers.
The more threatened I am by the stain, the more its overwhelmed by various products.
This would be a perfect box to bring to Vegas or to an overnight event where you can put on the eyelashes and red lipstick and come home to a facial and use the dry shampoo the morning after.
But for me, Ruby Woo will happen when I choose to channel my “inner Gwen Stefani”, a rare event. And a fancy party for the eyelashes which will be another rare event.
Rare events do happen.
But probably not the Ruby Woo and falsies at the same time.
I go with one “wow” when I want to “wow”.
The facial will be used at random and the dry shampoo will get the most use as a laundry stain remover.
My life is so exciting.
As being true with most of my Allure boxes, I have squirreled everything away for future use. I do have a family wedding coming up so…. Maybe I will try the lipstick on Halloween. That would be an easy thing just a bold lip. And if it smears (which rarely does happen but maybe its because I don’t use fire engine red lippies), it’s Halloween!
Do you snap up a box because of one particular item? Did you miss out on a box that had an item on your list?
