Allure Beauty Box Free Gift With Purchase

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.

If you’re not familiar with the Allure subscription box, I’ve written more about it here.

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.

What is included in the Allure Beauty Box

Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow

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. 

  • Not tested on animals, not vegan but they are making strides towards finding alternates of animal products.
  • Full-size price: $10
  • Is it worth the purchase?
    Yes. I love the formula and the ability to choose your own colors or select a pre-made palette.

Sigma Beauty Travel Size Blending Brush, E25

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.

  • Warranty on their brushes
  • Cruelty-free, responsibly sourced materials
  • Synthetic microbial fibers
  • Created with the intention to last
  • Full-size price: $16
  • Is it worth the purchase?
    Yes. 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 went to their site to buy the full-size brush and some others. You can read about that here.

Beauty Counter Lengthening Mascara

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 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.

  • Responsibly sourced ingredients and packaging
  • Clean beauty brand that avoids harmful chemicals
  • Full-size price: $29
  • Is it worth the purchase?
    No. I think Beauty Counter supports a really noble cause and I would love 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.

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré Multifunction Nourishing Moisturizer

I used this moisturizer on my face at night and it felt very luxurious on my dry skin. 

  • For all skin types
  • Can be used on face or body
  • Full-size price: $16 for 1 oz
  • Is it worth the purchase?
    Yes

Cargo Cosmetics Stick Highlighter in Champagne

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
  • No longer available
  • Full-size price: $28
  • Is it worth the purchase?
    First of all, it's no longer available. If it were, I would say no. I have a feeling that other 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

This is a really pretty plummy, red lip liner. I like it and can’t really find anything wrong with it.

  • Cruelty free, vegan-friendly, never tested on animals
  • Full-size price: $18
  • Is it worth the purchase?
    Sure, but this color is no longer available. As of this posting, all the other lip pencils on their site are sold out. All of em.

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.

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.
