Allure Beauty Box - August 2018 | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

Disclosure: This post contains referral links. That means if you click the link and sign up, I will receive something in return. Find out more information here!

What is Allure Beauty Box?: Allure Beauty Box is a monthly subscription box. Direct from the website info: "Each box includes at least five editor-curated deluxe-size products, with a total value of at least $50. Our editors select a mix of luxury and indie brands for each box. Sometimes we include a bonus product (or two) from a mass brand as a free gift to you." They define deluxe items as anything that you can get three uses out of but they also consider a single face mask a deluxe item.

How Much is Allure Beauty Box?: Allure Beauty Box is $15/month. If you sign up now, the website says you'll get your first box for $5 off.

Yep, I resubscribed to Allure. It's better this time.


Strange box this month.



Ah, the old Allure boxes.


Info booklet.


$30 off at Breda Watches - Doesn't count towards value when it cannot get you an item without putting your own money towards it.

Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet ($15.00) - I almost always give away Caudalie products because of the smell. Nothing against the brand, it just triggers my allergies.

Laniege Lip Sleeping Mask ($2.29) - This is one of the rare times that a bomb product also ends up being sent in a ton of different subscriptions. I think by now I have two and I just gave one to my mom. I have also bought the gloss version and my lips have never been more hydrated.


Nexxus Keraphix Damage Healing Shampoo/Conditioner ($3.11/$4.44) - This is a pretty good shampoo/conditioner combo. Definitely not my favorite but it works, on both scent and formula.


Pinch of Colour Waterless Lip Colour (Poppy) ($24.00) - Formula, total hit. Shade, a bit too magenta for me. It dried down mostly matte but in a super comfortable, creamy way.

Laritzy Cosmetics Light Stix (Halo) ($24.00) - This is such a beautiful champagne/gold shade, but in a way that works for those of us that are super pale. It's smooth and highlighty but it doesn't have chunks of glitter or anything else uncomfortable. I really like this because it layers nicely under a powder highlight or is just enough sparkle for a no-makeup, makeup day!

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner ($22.00) - I don't do liquid eyeliners. I don't know how to apply it without making a mess, someone help, although I don't know how someone would teach me. I do have one liquid liner to try when I get the urge to have a cat eye.


Swatches left to right: Laritzy, Pinch of Colour, Eyeko.


This box was valued at $94.84. I liked some of the items but it wasn't a homerun for me, but I didn't give up and cancel right away (I forgot, to be frank) and they got a lot better!

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
