Maybe new mascara or eyeshadow. This month we got lipstick, blush and powder.We've got to finish painting the face for the summer;) I love that now they promise at least 6 products in every box. Can't wait for a spoiler.

I would love some good quality mineral spf, 30 or more! I just decided two weeks ago to use them everyday rain or shine. So late! I am already 37 years old :-/

Can't wait to see the box or at least a spoiler. Seven items is awsome and the value is great.

I just signed up! I figured for $10 (I'm a first time subber so I got $5 off) and with those brands listed it was worth a try! Especially since I've really liked the past few boxes.

Seems kind of boring...wonder what the 7th item will be? 

 

Totally off topic, but what happened to the Beauty Thrills boxes?  Thought we would have one in the works by now.  Has anyone heard anything?

I think so, that's what MSA says.

 

I like the looks of most of it, not to thrilled with the cotz item and the fekkai won't work for my hair but I like the looks of the other products.

Thanks for the info @! I'm still looking forward to the box for the value. The pictured box looks like a good one even though I probably won't use all of the items. It's a bummer that there won't be a 7th item though.

My credit card was charged yesterday, hopefully will see the box with all the items next week.

Yes, first they stated on their website it would be more samples, then corrected.

I am not too excited about the box but will use a couple of things. I don't like those mini fragrance, never to my taste :(

Received my box yesterday, there was no 7th item in the box.  But every item in there was of good size and very nice in person.  The perfume is nice and in a cute bottle.  DDF product is very nice, and the L'Occitane is better than the little samples you get from Sephora.  I am happy with this box.

 

It is kind of funny, but Allure sent me an email yesterday letting me know that box was on its way and I was opening my April box at that time!!

I got my shipping confirmation on the 4th.  I am experimenting with their option to redirect your box to another address. In this case I have sent my box to my Mom's place on the west coast. (I live in and East Coast state.)

Hmm I see people are getting their boxes, but I don't have a tracking number yet.  

I did not get tracking until after it showed up in my mailbox.  It may just show up like mine did.

You're right, the mail man brought it today! 

 

I'm a little indifferent about a few items. I won't use the glossing cream and the mascara is meh. I love DDF and curious about the shower oil. I'm not sure about the perfume. Usually the "mature" scents smell good on me. Will see!

I have been subscribed to this box for over a year, maybe even two years now, and never switched to the "new" billing people. I think it's ridiculous that I would have to do that after they told me I don't have to do anything. Then there was that whole extra box debacle that happened two months ago or so. I did not receive the extra box any of the months that got sent out.

 

So on February 16th I sent them an email saying they should not treat their long time subscribers worse than people who just signed up. If anything, they should try and keep their long time customers to stay subscribed! I got a generic "thanks for reaching out, we'll contact you shortly" message. Well, they didn't get back to me, so on March 7th I wrote back saying that it's pretty crummy customer service to not get back to someone after almost a month.

 

They finally replied on March 9th with another generic "the free boxes that are mailed out monthly from Allure Beauty Box are mailed to a small selection of customers chosen at random" which is not true. They didn't even bother explaining the issue with who I am being billed by. I specifically addressed this issue in my initial email too.

 

Cut to today (April 6th)--I got a reply to my initial message saying that "we will have a love box sent to you". I am not sure what that even means, and again, none of my initial questions or complaints were answered. Just a very weird scenario. Guess I'll see what I get.

I agree with you 100%. I was like why do I have to change over when they specifically said no worries we will handle it all. But then everyone who switched go special extra boxes. That was enough to convince me to dump the beautybar billing and just re sign up with Allure. It's stupid but, I don't think sub boxes (generally) reward long time customers. 

 

Stitch Fix has been the only box who's sent me extra items (note books, totes) for being a long time subscriber.

    • Hi I really need som help to find a good foundation. Im 35 years old and when I put on foundation it looks terrible. On the left side I have no makeup but in the right side I have Max factor radiant lift foundation. I still have acne and thats why I want to use foundation..
    • I'm going to have one day a week off of work for a while! I have not had any vacation since I began my job in 2015. Is No Buy worth it if it lets you work less? Maybe! 
    • Moisturiser is one skincare staple that people with dry skin absolutely can’t do without. Dry patches, flakiness, peeling skin, are just some of the many issues that dry skin beauties have to deal with. And if that isn’t enough, finding the best moisturizer for dry skin that leaves your skin happy and hydrated is a task in itself.    Picking the right skincare products for your skin type is not an easy task - there is a lot of research involved in finding a product that would suit you the best. And that’s probably what brought you here, right?
    • Other than making you feel weirdly satisfied while peeling off the mask properly, charcoal peel off masks offers a wide range of skin benefits. Especially black peel off masks, which are all the rage right now among teenagers and adults.  
    • Hi guys. Well I am a 37 year old woman and I looked into a Makeup Academy when I was in my early 20s but it was too expensive for me to afford at the time. A little background on me. I never had anyone to teach me how to do makeup. My mom was NOT a girly girl so I had no real feminine influence lol. I have never tried to do anyone's makeup because I lack the confidence. But I would really like to learn. My question is, has anyone here started Makeup school at a later age? Were you in school with mostly younger folks and how did it work out for you? I guess my question is, is Age a disadvantage in this industry? Thanks!
