I don't know if it's always been this way, but I just discovered that Allure lists the credits for the front and back cover photos of the Beauty Box mini mag next to the spine on the page with the Letter From The Editor. I think it's a photographer credit (there are two models on the cover, but only one name credited), but still--no more mysterious photos!
The Allure Beauty Box is a $15 a month (plus any applicable taxes; I end up paying around $16) beauty/makeup subscription service curated by the people behind the Allure magazine. This is one of the more variable subscription boxes, both in terms of value and types of products, though the longer I'm subscribed, the more I'm starting to see a handful of the same brands getting sampled (lots of Mally and lots of Bulgari, for example).
Overall, I got three full size products and three deluxe size samples with a total value of about $60.96, which is great for a $15 box. Nothing in this box was particularly bad, but it ended up falling a bit short for me. The only product that I'm going to get much use out of is the Spongelle sponge, but then again, it alone retails for $15, so it's almost like I bought the sponge, and got everything else for free. In general, I've had a good experience with the Allure Beauty Box, and I do want to recommend it for people looking for a less expensive makeup/beauty subscription, but I know that there have been issues with it, both customer service-wise and with the subscription in general, so it's difficult for me to give it my stamp of approval. If you're interested in this service, I highly recommend checking it out at My Subscription Addiction since they post a lot of valuable information about past and future boxes (and the comments are helpful, too!).
