It’s been a few months since I’ve purchased an Allure Beauty Box, but I just could not pass up April.
I canceled my sub late last year because I wasn’t thrilled about the sneak peeks I saw in upcoming boxes. Customer service was a pain! It took almost 2 weeks to get a response to my cancellation email, and I was still charged January’s box. It eventually all got straightened out, but it really soured me on subscribing again. That is, until I saw Natasha Denona and Sunday Riley A+ Retinol sneak peeks in April’s box.
Even though I was hesitant to resubscribe, I did it anyway because I looove Natasha Denona eyeshadows. And Allure now takes Paypal, so if I decide to cancel again, I can just cancel my reoccurring payment through Paypal directly. Woo!
I’m so glad Allure got rid of their old thick red boxes. I had no use for them but felt bad tossing them, so I would hoard them for a while until I got annoyed enough to get rid of them. These clear makeup bags are perfect for my purse and hold a ton of ish.
So, what’s inside?
Sadly, my box didn’t include the Sunday Riley retinol sample. Major bummer, but I’m still good with what I received.
Natasha Denona Single Eye Shadow in 124K Bronzage
It’s a gorgeous copper shade, and even though I own 3,456,290 copper shadows, I’m ecstatic with this single!
Vita Liberata pHenomenal Tan Infused Towels (2 pack)
I’m tan and never go tanning on purpose, so I’ll pass this off to a friend.
Briogeo Farewell Frizz Leave in Conditioning Spray
I have really frizzy hair, so I live and die by leave-in conditioner. This isn’t the *best* I’ve tried, but it’s not bad. A solid 3.5 out of 5 stars.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Pure Hollywood
I can already tell it’s way too light for my taste, so to the friend pile it goes.
Laura Gellar Waterproof Gel Pencil in Green Eyes
This is a pretty green shade that stays on nicely. It took a little bit of rubbing to get it off my hand after it set, so that’s a positive!
Royal & Langnickel Brush
I hoard brushes like no one’s business, so I’m always excited when I get more. This has an angled tip and it feels pretty sturdy.
Mally Beauty Eyeshadow Stick in Autumn Shimmer
This is really pretty with lots of shimmer. I love that it’s in a stick form – it applies really smoothly and blends well. I only wish it was in a contrasting color to the Natasha Denona eyeshadow, or vice-versa. They are definitely not the same color, but I would love to have received one vibrant or deep color instead of 2 neutrals.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with the selections this month. It was a nice array of beauty products for eyes, lips and hair, and most of them I’ll continue to use, along with the included makeup bag.
Do you sub to the Allure Beauty Box? What was your fave from April?
I subbed for Natasha Denona, but I’m pretty happy with all the products. It was a nice mix of goodies for hair, lips and eyes.
