Allure Beauty Thrills Winter 2016 *SPOILERS*

Recommended Posts

MSA posted spoilers for the holiday allure beauty thrills box.  Usually the box goes on sale either the Tuesday before or the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, if my memory is correct.  This one is light on the total number of items (18) and total value ($250) compared to the good old days, but in line with the last couple so it seems that this is the new normal.  Still well worth the $60 to me - I see over $70 worth of basics I'd have to buy anyway. 

 

Who else is going to pick one up?

This box is on sale right now...but apparently without the dermasilk.  I'm actually kind of annoyed because that product was in my "justification math".  Sure hope they replace it with something else!

 

Anyone else get one?  It's so funny to me that this thread is all crickets; I miss the days when it sold out in minutes and we used to compete to see who had the lowest order number!  Now I'm probably the only one who got suckered in (the wen and unwash got me).

I came here to look if I missed out, looks like I didn't and still on sale. I am gonna give myself until tonight if it is still available. I still have a big bag of freebies from IPSY GenBeauty event and splurged on French skincare that I have yet to open.

 

I so remember those days! With plenty of subscription boxes now, these kinds of sales are slowly dying. I googled where to buy, I was confused it's giving me the August box, wow! That hasn't sold out yet.

If you have the funds and want the august box, you can check a box when you order December to get August for $35, @iPretty949. (wasn't it $25 yesterday???)

 

Here is a link in case anyone else needs it.

Yes this was fun when people fought to order the box.  I did the pre-order this year.  I also saw the August box was on sale so I called and ordered another one.  It helps me to rationalize that I paid so much for the pre-order.  Averaging the two helps.  

I am wondering when the December will ship.  I received the August box but, have not received the December one.  Anyone get a shipping notice?

Argh, Allure is so frustrating!  This is the third box in a row that has had issues.  The last two had a product spill all over everything, so allure replaced the boxes and let me keep what I could salvage from the ruined boxes.  Then I just got a THIRD august box I didn't order instead of getting my December box.  I called and they said to keep it.  Getting so many extra boxes is stressing me out; I don't want them to think I am a scammer taking advantage of their excellent customer service, I just want them to get their act together and send everything right the first time!!!

A wee box arrived in the mail today. It's definitely underwhelming. And something in here stinks, but nothing has leaked. I don't even remember what was supposed to be in this thing. But there's a bonus nail file!

The coupon on the press on nails expire at the end of the month. Hopefully everyone will get their boxes soon. I'm going to have to put this thing outside until I can figure out where this stench is coming from.

I received my little box today too.  This year sure has been a disappointment and I'll never do the pre-order again.  - it's almost as if they didn't want to keep customers.

I still don't have mine - they sent me ANOTHER august box so I have four of those now. 

Trust me you are in better shape - the winter box had like 1/2 the quantity.  It was by far the worst box ever.

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal. https://folexin.info/ https://skincellpro11.weebly.com/
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
