Allure Beauty Box – January & Feberury 2017

img_20170219_210359

Yeah! Another subscription box unboxing post. I actually start subscribing Allure Beauty Box at the end of January so I got my January box last week too. Kabeeammara introduced this box to me, and please check out her blog too. Her reviews are so informative and useful. I learn a lot from her. She is a very sweet and nice lady <3

Allure beauty box cost $15 usd/month. I got mine with $10 usd/month for 3 months during their promotion time. They generally give 5 to 6 samples every month. I checked out their previous boxes. They include makeup, skincare, nail polish, perfume, candle, facial mask, etc. So far, I haven’t seen any samples that are single used only. Let’s start on the unboxing part.

Here I have to say that Allure beauty box use nice quality paper cardboard to make their box so it is thick and heavy, and it makes me think they put efforts in the subscription box. I mean it just makes me feel good. We all know the first impression is so important especially these subscription type of business. These boxes are great for DIY or store some little things. I also like they put a little magazine on top, but I think it will be even better if the cover girl’s makeup uses the products in the box.

Let’s start with the January 2017 box. I got 3 makeup products, 2 skincare product, and a hair product.

Doucce Freematic Eye Shadow

I love the package of this eyeshadow case. Each eyeshadow is removable because it is attached by a magnet on the bottom of the case. If you have more of these, you can switch around and bring any 4 colors you want for the day. Personally, I don’t really like this eyeshadow combination because I prefer matte colors. Although the colors are beautiful and the texture is silky smooth, I cannot imagine myself to have full glider eyes. I mean I will need to use a matte color for the base and only use one of these for the main. I guess I am just bad at makeup so cannot understand this. I also want to mention that this is their full-size version except they are missing the brush. The retail value is $35 usd which is worth the entire box already!

Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Blush Basin

Well, another product I love to try. I have been using Burt’s Bees lip balm for long and love their products. This lipstick color is really close to my own lip color so it will be handy when I do a “no-makeup” makeup. It is creamy and smelled nice. I can see myself use it a lot these days.

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion

Biobelle Facial Mask in #beautyscoop

These two are the facial exfoliator and facial mask. I think I will give the exfoliator to my mom or cousin since I don’t use facial exfoliator that much. The facial mask make me so excited to try since it is so thick and cute! It also cost $4.99 usd for this single sheet.

Sigma E70 Medium Angled Shading brush

This shading brush is soft and easy to use, but my eyes are too small to handle it XD

Oscar Blandi Bronto Dry Shampoo Invisible Spray

This dry shampoo sample has a decent size (39.6g or 1.4oz)  I haven’t tried it yet, but I think this can last me a while 😉

Beautycounter Lengthening Mascara

This is another full-size makeup product that worth the entire box! I think this mascara is just my need. I have short eyelashes so I need mascara to make my lashes longer.The brush looks easy to use for beginner like me 😉 I will use it with the eye shadow on the January Box.

Red Flower Moroccan Rose Candle

I really want to tell you that it smelled so nice when I open the box, and it is because of this little candle! This sweet rosy scent just catch my heart. Although I don’t use candle, I will place it in my drawer or closet. Once it doesn’t smell much at all, I will cut off the surface layer. Hope this can last me long <3

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads

I think this is great for busy or lazy people. When we are lazy or don’t have time to do the cleansing and toning steps, this become handy. One pads can shorten cleaning and toning in less than 30 seconds. I saw a lot of this type of product from Korean and Japanese sites, and now I get the chance to try it. This sample has 10 pads so I think it is perfect when I go travel, so I think my review of this will be long time later this year XD

GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper

I will use this for sure. I really want to try it to see if I can have a fuller juicy lips 😉 It is interesting to see they put a before-after picture on the sample.

Cargo Colorstick in Champagne

It is a highlighter than gives a glow to our skin. I tried to take pictures to show how it looks on my skin but it is not that clear 🙁 But it is a very light pink color. This stick can last super long since we cannot use much at once. The texture is creamy and smooth. I like it on my skin 🙂 By the way, this is almost the same size as a full-size version. (7g vs 10g) it cost $28 usd for the full-size version. What happen to Allure? XD You make me want to subscribe forever.

OLAY Eyes Pro-Retinol Eye Treatment

Yeah! An eye cream to try! Including the eye cream sample I got from BirchBox, I don’t need to buy any eye cream for a month or so. I think eye cream is so important. Our eyes tell our age so easily. It is the earliest part of our face to have winkles too.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Allure Beauty Box totally worth for the price, and it makes me want to cancel BirchBox so much XD I hope BirchBox could do better. Once a while give us a surprise please. If Allure can do this with $15 usd, I think BirchBox can do little bit better. What do you think? Do you think Allure Beauty Box is worth for trying? Do you have other suggested subscription box?

That’s all for my unboxing! Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy! Feel free to leave any comment or suggestion! I will post Allure Beauty Box March 2017 unboxing next month 😉

      I don’t know. I hope they do. But Indonesia can assess a lot of different brands that we can’t get in America.
