We're getting close to the end of our vacation in far back month of June (at least when it comes to subscription services, there are still some things I got in June that I still want to blog about) with the review and unboxing of the...
My Subscription Addiction you can read about it). This is not an 'outstanding' box, but it's definitely not as bad as some past boxes have been (I feel like I said almost the exact same thing about my June Ipsy bag; it sounds like June is a good month for being 'average').
This box also includes one of the more controversial products I've seen from this subscription service; I'll touch on it here, but again, if you want to read more, check out the spoiler/review pages for June on My Subscription Addiction.
Quick Run-Down: $15 a month beauty/makeup subscription service curated by Allure magazine (I pay a little over $16 after taxes); seems to be the standard 'five deluxe/full size products' kind of box, though, more often than not, you get more than five; very informative mini mag, which includes how to use the product, why Allure included it in this box, the price of the full size, and where to purchase it; no rewards program, no real online support (no Glam Room or real account with Allure or anything), has some kinks with how the service works (based on a magazine subscription service than an actual sample box subscription service; Allure has said they are trying to revamp things to make it work better).
Katie was pretty much opaque on the first coat, but I always do two when I swatch or am painting my nails. This polish performed the way good Julep polishes do, so no complaints there. This is a full size product and it's worth $14, but take that with a grain of salt since Julep products always go on sale (I get a 20% discount on everything anyways because I'm a Julep Maven) and you should never pay full price for one.
Overall, I got two full size products and four deluxe/travel size products with a total value of $77 ($50 of that is from the Pur-Lisse products, and I did use $14 as the value of the nail polish, even though I would never pay that much for one). For a $15 a month box, that's pretty good (my $10 boxes, like Ipsy, are usually around $35-$50 in value). The only product that I'm not going to get any use out of for sure is the shampoo, so five useful products out of six isn't bad! If you're interested in signing up for the Allure Beauty Box, I'd say go for it, but be warned that are some issues with customer service right now and it might be better to wait until things get sorted out.
Thanks for reading! <3
