We are back for another Allure Beauty Box! This time, the July box is a little exciting because when I was flipping through the Mini Mag, I saw that the Boxy Ladies were the Member Spotlight. How cool is that?! We are FAMOUS. Well. Sort of. So because of that, we decided to do an unboxing/review type YouTube video so enjoy!
ALLURE BEAUTY BOX
Box Type: Monthly beauty box featuring 6 high end beauty product samples (and sometimes full-sized products!).
Why you’ll love it: Top brands, great price, new products that you will love! A great way to sample expensive products without committing to the price tag. Each box comes with an Allure mini-magazine that showcases each product and is as quality as you’d expect from a magazine powerhouse like Allure.

Feel Brilliant Bamboo Charcoal Facial Sheet Mask ($35/pack of 4): http://fave.co/2vbVzH4
I haven’t used this yet because I want to save it for a time when my skin is misbehaving a bit. I like to have a variety of sheet masks at my disposal at all times so I’m glad to add this to the bunch.
Beauty for Real Lip Revival + Exfoliating Hydrating Lip Scrub ($14): http://fave.co/2tkM4bs
I can always use a new lip scrub, especially with so many liquid lipsticks around. Thank goodness that trend is fading away in favor of more moisturizing lipsticks. But either way, you need a smooth canvas so I’m glad to have this! A little goes a long way so I know this will last awhile.
Briogeo Rosarco Blow Dry Perfection & Heat Protectant Crème ($24): http://fave.co/2vbKJ3X
I have used this a few times now and I think I like it but it’s also sort of hard to tell? On the one hand, it doesn’t weigh my hair down much, which is good!
Cargo Swimmables Water Resistant Blush in Bali ($26): http://fave.co/2tl2QXP
I was able to pop this out of the packaging really easily and pop it into a Z palette so I will definitely be using this soon! I love that it’s waterproof because Texas is SO HOT and I need all the help I can get with helping my makeup stay on my face.
Burt’s Bees Complete Nourishment Facial Oil ($20): http://fave.co/2vcvmYX
I like having facial oils around but I haven’t tried this one yet. I love the Josie Maran argan oil, especially when I am having breakouts. Instead of putting a bunch of drying products on a blemish, I like to fight them with oil to prevent having dry flaky skin. This technique also really helps in covering up blemishes!
Wander Beauty Lipstick in Barely There ($30 for the Wonderout Dual Lipstick in Wanderberry/Barely There): http://fave.co/2vbD6dZ
Ugh, I was so excited to use this in the video but then I looked up the ingredients and it has castor oil in it which I am allergic to. (I am bummed that castor oil is in SO MANY lipsticks!) This color is SO pretty and I wish I could wear it.
Redken Fashion Waves 07 Sea Salt Spray ($19.50/full size): http://fave.co/2vc60dG
I am really into sea salt sprays right now because unlike the pictures show, I got my hair cut. So I’m really into using some sea salt spray and a curling wand for beachy waves. I haven’t tried this one yet but it’s perfect for my gym bag so I’ll be using this one soon!
CHECK US OUT, WE ARE THE MEMBER SPOTLIGHT! MUCH FAME. SO FAMOUS.
Final Grade: A++++ (Flattery is everything.)
But seriously, the July Allure Beauty Box was great. I’m sad I can’t use the lipstick because I was so excited for it. But this is another one of those situations where I will use all the products!
