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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
