I really like that Allure is sending me their Allure Beauty Box really early in the month these days. I feel like I used to receive these boxes mid-month, but I received this on March 7th! Way to go, Allure. Way to be there.
This is still one of my very favorite subscription boxes because Allure always introduces me to high-end products I want to try for $15/month. I don’t know why everyone doesn’t get this one! It is awesome. I wish they did referrals because I’d be killing it.
Allure always knocks it out of the park with their Allure Mini-Mag, which always gives an awesome breakdown about the different products in each box and why the Allure editors chose them.
So let’s see what we got this month!
I really love this month’s box and was really happy with almost everything they sent!
Cargo Blush in Catalina (f/s $26) and Cargo Bronzer in Medium (f/s $29): I haven’t heard too much from Cargo in the last few years but their products keep popping up in subscription boxes. I’m actually pretty excited about this little duo. I don’t think I have any shimmery bronzers (I think all of mine are matte!) and I’m not even sure I have a bubble gum pink blush, and I’ve been interested in getting one because I think it looks really fresh and pretty.
Julep Konjac Cleansing Face Sponge ($12): I laughed when I saw spoilers with this sponge in it because I think I might have 2 of these in my closet. I ordered a few of them from the Julep Maven Secret Store a few months ago! These sponges are getting pretty popular these days as Boscia has their own version and I received one in my Play! by Sephora box a few months ago! These sponges are great for some gentle exfoliation and the charcoal that’s infused in the Konjac root helps to gently dislodge dirt, oil and dead skin.
Nunzio Saviano Anti-Frizz Sheets ($18/box of 12): These sheets are meant to tame frizz with a few passes over your hair without weighing hair down. These seem kind of expensive when you could also just wipe your hair with a dryer sheet (which is what magazines have told us to do for years to help with static/frizz) but who knows? I will keep you posted.
Macadamia Professional Ultra Rich Moisture Cleansing Conditioner ($10/3.3 oz or $26/10 oz): This is a product I will never use! I will try to find a friend with course, curly hair so this will go to a good home. I wish I could even try this, but when the packaging literally says, “Very Course, Coiled” I know that it would just be a colossal waste of my time! This was a very generously sized sample, though! 3.3 oz of it is $10 and the sample is 2 oz.
DpHUE ACV (f/s $35): I’m pretty excited to try this product. There are Pinterest articles galore with Apple Cider Vinegar hair recipes, but even pre-Pinterest, I’ve always read how good Apple Cider Vinegar is with clarifying your hair. I use a lot of dry shampoo and different volumizing products so I might give this a try on a weekend when I have some time to experiment!
Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder (f/s $34): I’ve been using finishing powders more often lately, especially when I wear foundation (versus just a bb cream) and I remember I used to have this but gave it away when I wasn’t using it. I’m glad to have it back. 🙂
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lipcolor in Violet Parfait ($9.99): This L’Oreal lipstick wasn’t listed in the Allure mini-mag but there was an ad for it on the back, so it looks like this was a bonus product this month. I’m totes down with that because this looks like something I would buy when I am wandering around Target. It actually swatched a little darker than I would have thought, sort of raisin colored, but I like it! I’m interested in seeing how long this actually wears.
Swatched above: L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Last Lip Color in Violet Parfait, Cargo Blush in Catalina, and Cargo Bronzer in Medium
Final Grade: A
I thought this was a great Allure Beauty Box! The only thing I wasn’t super crazy about was the heavy Macadamia Professional cleansing conditioner but it is just for a different hair type than mine. By my approximations, I think this box had close to a $60 value which is pretty amazing for $15.
They don’t do referrals yet (grrrr, I would probably have a lot) but if you’d like to sign up and receive awesome products from Allure’s editors, click here!
