For the past 3 or four months, I can honestly say there is a love/hate relationship between myself and the Allure Beauty Box. Like that great-aunt with the terrible garlic breath that you know is going to give you an awesome present for the holidays. Or that hideous relationship that you were absolutely happy ended but you missed the kisses. Its like….urgh! From the first box that I got, there was something in there for me and something in that box that totally made me want to pack it back up, put it in my car and drop it off at one of my friends’ house as a gift. Like what’s the point?
One of the many perks of getting the Allure Beauty Box is that it exposes you to beauty and skincare companies all over the world that you probably never heard of. You also get the chance to try products that have come out in makeup stores that you may have been a bit apprehensive of spending the money on trying.
There are numerous products that I’d wanted to try but did not want to spend the money on a possible makeup-fail. Products like the Eyeko’s ‘Eye Do’ Liquid Eyeliner, Make Up For Ever’s Artist Liquid Matte Liquid Lipstick, and Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed Highlighter. Now one of the main issues (probably the only true issue) that I’ve had with Allure is that the products that are sent….I’m simply not interested in the skin products, only the makeup products.
Yes, I understand that I will very well miss out on the next best thing if I don’t keep myself open to all things but the makeup industry is what seems to be evolving the fastest. I mean, who can’t just use some Neutrogena and some H2O+ NightTime Moisture-Lock and call it a day for the skincare routine? I’m just saying gurl….Allure gotta step the makeup game up.
