Hello! Hope you're having a great day! For this post, I want to share with you guys an unboxing and review of my October 2015 Allure Beauty Box.
The Allure Beauty Box is a $15 a month subscription service that sends you around five deluxe- and full-size makeup and beauty product samples. These samples are picked by the editors of Allure, the premiere beauty magazine in the U.S. It is a bit more expensive than Birchbox or Ipsy, and I am still on the fence about whether or not it is worth that extra $5. There is no rewards program and the samples themselves are starting to seem less and less better than the cheaper services (if that makes sense; the September box was amazing in value, the October box is so-so, and the November box was kind of a let down). Allure does however provide you with a lot more information about the products than either Ipsy or Birchbox, so they have that going for them at least!
Overall in my October 2015 Allure Beauty Box I got two full size products, two deluxe size samples, and one sample that was essentially a foil packet. The value of my box, minus the Kryolan lipsticks, was $46.05, so I definitely got my moneys worth (actually, I got my moneys worth in just the Cargo eye shadow), but I can't help but feel a little underwhelmed by this box, especially compared to Septembers. I'm going to stay subscribed for now, but stay tuned since I did get my November box already and let's just say I'm not too pleased with it.
Thanks for reading! <3
