Whenever I buy something online, I like to look around for coupon codes or deals. At the end of November 2018, I found this offer for the Allure Beauty Box free gift with purchase. A 3-month subscription was required for this great value; however, the offers change from month-to-month. You can find out what this month’s offer is here (referral link).

Allure Beauty Box Free Gift With Purchase Unboxing
I recorded an unboxing to give you a better idea of not only what was included, but the value of the products that were included. In this video, I take a closer look at the colors and textures of all the products. I usually post these sorts of videos on Instagram, so if you’re into that sorta thing, be sure to follow Try All The Stuff on Instagram.
What is included in the Allure Beauty Box
Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow
Full-size price: $10
Pronounced doh-seh, this mini eyeshadow pan is a copper shimmer with a smooth texture. The idea behind Doucce eyeshadows is the ability to create your own custom palette with their magnetic case. I love the formula and the ability to choose your own colors or select a pre-made palette.
- Not tested on animals, not vegan but they are making strides towards finding alternates of animal products.
Sigma Beauty Travel Size Blending Brush, E25
Full-size price: $16
Don’t let the size of this brush fool you, it has a sturdy handle and is made from soft synthetic fibers. This is the type of brush everyone needs in their set because it applies color wonderfully and blends like a dream. Sigma brushes have synthetic microbial fibers that are created with the intention to last.
One of the beautiful things about subscription boxes is that you can try tons of different products and find the brands that really stand out from the rest. Sigma Beauty is one of those brands. I’ve since gone to their site to buy the full-size brush and some others. You can read about that here.
- Warranty on their brushes
- Cruelty-free, responsibly sourced materials
Beauty Counter Lengthening Mascara
Full-size price: $29
I think it’s great when I get a full-size mascara in a beauty box, but this one was just sad. The tube is very thin, which isn’t the problem, but something to make a note of. As you have seen in the video above, the wand was very long and flimsy and the fibers on the spoolie were really short. This mascara didn’t do anything to lengthen my eyelashes and it was really hard to control the application. I’m not used to the wands being so flimsy.
I think Beauty Counter supports a really noble cause and I would love to incorporate cleaner products into my life, but this mascara just didn’t work. If clean ingredients are a top priority for you, I’d try another mascara first.
- Responsibly sourced ingredients and packaging
- Clean beauty brand that avoids harmful chemicals
Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré Multifunction Nourishing Moisturizer
Full-size price: $16 for 1 oz
I used this moisturizer on my face at night and it felt very luxurious on my dry skin. Made for all skin types and can be used on face or body.
Cargo Cosmetics Stick Highlighter in Champagne
Full-size price: $28
My skin has a lot of texture to it because of acne so this didn’t work very well for me. I have tricky skin to highlight so I tend to avoid creams. The texture felt a little bit gritty. Subtle shimmer for a more natural glow.
First of all, this highlighter no longer available. If it were, I would say to pass on it. I have a feeling that others felt the same way as me and maybe that’s why it was discontinued. Cargo has a wonderful bronzer that I used to use religiously so I’m not opposed to trying other products by this brand.
Laritzy Lip Pencil in Cabernet
Full-size price: $18
This is a really pretty plummy, red lip liner. I like it and can’t really find anything wrong with it except that this color is no longer available. As of this posting, all the other lip pencils on their site are sold out. All of em.
- Cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, never tested on animals
Is the Allure Beauty Box free gift with purchase worth it?
I think this was a great free gift with a 3 month subscription. I basically got 4 beauty boxes for the price of 3. Even though there were some misses, I think this was a fabulous deal. I wrote reviews on the November 2018, December 2018, January 2019 and February 2019 boxes, so go check them out too.
This deal may no longer be available, but check out this list of current Allure Beauty Box offers. And, if you’d like to learn more or sign up, click here (referral link).
