  1. So I wonder if, since they are releasing the spoilers one day at a time, if there is yet a bigger surprise pending…. I don’t know if they started big or are building up….??????

    • I can’t imagine there being anything bigger than the Foreo. It’s extraordinary that a $15 beauty box has one in the first place.

      We can certainly hope for more good stuff, but better than that? No way.

    • Check your e-mail! If you receive e-mail from Allure, you can see the full box (even though its hard to see because small). I got a newsletter/daily kind of e-mail from them today and when I scrolled down they had the picture of the full box for this month. The other items seem to be two samples from Foreo (maybe a cleanser and an exfoliator), a sample of Cotz, and I couldn’t make it the last one.

    • Yeah the big surprise is we don’t get the May box. Check the most recent postings under Full Spoilers. What a nightmare.

      • Wow I came here to warn everyone to check their bank accounts. Check you bank accounts !! I was charged $65.00 for the beauty box that I had already paid for. When I called customer service they said they were aware and already refunding people. I then inquired about my May box and she told me that I was in fact getting the June box may had already sold out. I’m so angry. I signed up April 2 before all the spoilers came out!!! How can they pick and choose who gets a box. They are using my $65.00 and my $15.00 that I already paid for my May box. and I get nothing. I pre purchase the allure beauty thrills for $200.00 so I’m a little worried i won’t get that either. I cancelled my monthly box. So know they need to refund me $80.00! This is so wrong. And they couldn’t even tell me why I was charged the $65.00 in the first place ! I’m so angry

  2. This is my month of desiding who stays and who goes ,let the games begin.im completely out of control,ipsy,Birchbox,Boxycharm,Glossybox,beauty fix,beauty box five,joy beauty box,allure,lipstick monthly,Walmart,target,Amazon,and now Play

    • Oh boy right now I’m getting Ipsy,Allure,Julep and Play. Prob will always try the Amazon and will see monthly if Target worth getting. Was considering BB, Boxycharm, Glossybox and beauty fix but trying not to go too crazy too soon. Gonna try to wait for Black Friday and Gilt deals. Think I might try Yuzen next. So even though Allure box is gonna be so great what color Foreo is everyone hoping for? I just don’t want black.

      • This is my first Allure box and I subbed just for the Foreo, everything else was a bonus. I’m hoping for a mint one but honestly I’ll be happy with any of the colours. I’ve been on the fence about buying a face cleaner like this since I don’t really know if it’s worth it or not. I’m hoping that the Foreo will help me make up my mind since the products are on the expensive side. To try it 100 times for 10$ (with the deal) is amazing. I’ve been on the fence about the Allure box in the past but was too lazy to read reviews so when I saw it on this site I made up my mind. Hopefully they’ll stay good now that I’m here, lol.

        What colour are you hoping for?

    • I have about ten boxes myself, but it is just so much fun! I can’t help it, lol…and omg yes on this mascara, I love everything in this box!

      • I’ll probably deside I should keep all of them ,I’m such a sucker for all these beauty boxes I just can’t help buying more and more

  3. Kinda irritated that Allure charged me for my May box TODAY. They usually charge me after the first. Is this common?

    • The always charge me during the last week of the month. The one time they hadn’t charged me by the first, there was a problem with my membership. (Had some issues, and in the process of getting it straightened out, my membership was accidently suspended.)

    • Yeah, they always charge at the end of the month, I’ve noticed now it is always on the 28th 😉

      • They charged me on the 27th and it posted as processed today for me.

  4. I just placed my order (while sitting at work ;)). The website said that the May will begin shipping on 4/29/2016. All orders will begin with their May box. Yay! I have a Foreo Luna mini. I love it. I cannot wait to get this box 🙂

  5. I stopped my subscription. Does anyone know … will I get this box here if I renew now?

    • I subscribed yesterday and at the top it said they would start with the May box and then when I went back they said it would start with the June box.

      I called customer service and they said I’d be getting the May box. It’s worth a shot!

      • Thanks!!

  6. Already an $81 value with the first four items. Insanity.

    • I keep rereading the post thinking this has to be a mistake. Surely we are getting a mini foreo cleanser and not an actual device.

      • Its the mini battery one that only lasts a certain number cleanses, its arounf $39 on their page.

  7. Man, Allure has really turned it around since the days of the tiniest samples in the world caused me cancel. I had to re-sub for this month. It’s just too good to miss.

  8. I signed up a few days ago, and I’m so glad I did. These spoilers are getting better and better. I can’t wait!! I may have to get rid of boxycharm. Boxycharm hasn’t been very exciting lately. Not sure its worth the 21$ I may have to get 2 allure boxes:)

    • I feel the same. I thought I would never consider getting rid of Boxycharm but if this month’s box isn’t good it’s going to be a goner and I’ll keep Allure instead.

  9. Awww booo. I was really hoping my eyeliner guess was right. I have tried this mascara many many times from sample boxes and sephora favorites boxes and unfortunately the brush is too unwieldy and awkwardly-shaped for me. I much prefer the hourglass brush shape and the formula of Too Faced BTS mascara…so I’ll be giving these to friends. I am still happy I ordered 2 of these boxes though, the rest of the items are killing it!

    • I didn’t actually care much for the Too Faced BTS mascara. The shape of the wand seems awkward to me and the wand is -way- to big for my eyes. http://www.instagram.com/p/BBwMBagR9gW/

  10. Does anyone ever had trouble logging into their Allure beauty box account? It’s saying that it can’t find my account information. I ordered my first box on April 22 & I haven’t had any trouble logging in until now

    • Yes that happened to me the other day. I called and they said to log in with your account number instead of email which the CS gave to me. He said glitch in the system. I thought it was fixed though.

      • Ok Thanks! I was worried I wouldn’t get my box

        • I can’t wait to get this box. This is first one for me. Will the other 4 items be deluxe sample size or drugstore brand? It would be great if Pixi and MUFE were full size.

    • I order my first box April 21 and I still haven’t rec my first box. How long should it take?

  11. I have eyelash extensions so I only wear mascara on my lower lashes, but always looking for new ones to try,

  12. This is an amazing box!!!! the mascara excites me more than the other spoilers, except the Foreo.

    • I’m not as excited about the mascara. The mascara they sent last month wasn’t very good. After about an hour my eyelashes would fall even flatter than before I curled them. It’s my grocery store mascara now because a quick trip to the grocery store is about how long it lasts.

      I’m not going to complain too much though because everything else in my allure boxes has been amazing

      • Last months mascara didn’t do anything for me either. I was excited because so many women say that it’s a staple in their everyday makeup. It works about as well as children’s play makeup.

    • If anyone’s interested HSN sells Foreo silicone cleaning spray for $9.90. I got my mini Foreo from them on a TS which I haven’t even tried yet?

  13. I love Allure! The more great spoilers I see the more anxiety I get thinking there’s gonna be something wrong with my box or items missing! Let’s just hope not because it’s been a very long time since I’ve been so excited about a sub! 😀

    • Lol… omg we think the same thing!!

      • Haha it’s just such a great month! Would hate to miss out on anything! Fingers crossed we get all of our items & it goes smoothly without a hitch! 😀

  14. Wow-this month’s box keeps getting better and better! I can’t even believe the value plus the range of items is making this one of the most amazing value boxes I’ve yet to see anywhere else…except for their free red carpet box from earlier in the year.
    It does leave me wondering what on Earth happened with the ‘Thrills’ box; it was such a snooze ?

    • I’ve been thinking the same thing. I’ve only been getting the Allure beauty box for a few months now but every one has been amazing, blowing all my other subscriptions out of the water. When I heard of the thrills box I was super excited, but after seeing what’s in it, it feels like a major let down..

  15. Aw, man. I was kinda hoping it would be the eyeliner, like someone posted on the last spoiler. I’ll have to swap this — I only wear waterproof mascara because I wear contacts.

    • I wear contacts and I don’t have a problem with non-waterproof mascara…actually a lot of the waterproof kinds irritate my eyes, plus they’re hard to get off at the end of the day.

    • Actually, it might be worth trying out this mascara (especially if it’s sample size). I wear contacts and experience irritation with many, many types of mascara–but not this one! It’s one of my all time favs.

    • Why do you use only waterproof mascara? I ask because I also have contacts but I’ve never been told/heard of anyone not wearing regular mascara before. Is it better for the lenses or do you just have wet eyes? If you don’t mind me asking of course, I’m not trying to be rude I just want to make sure I’m not messing up my eyes on accident.

      • I wear contacts, and have worn either hard or soft ones for over 40 years, and almost never wear waterproof mascara.

      • I think it’s just her preference. I worn contacts for over 30 years and I only wear regular mascara

        • Me too:)

  16. I’m cracking up picturing all of us reacting to each new spoiler like the audience of an Oprah’s favorite things episode.

    • Lol! Look under the lid of the box…..You get a car! You get a car! You all get a caaaaaarrrr!

      • Lol!

      • Hahaha!!!!

    • Ha! So true. 😀

    • lol so true ,think I actually did the Oprah face.

  17. Allure is one my favorites. I can’t wait to get my box ???

  18. it feels almost to good to be true!, such an amazing box this month. I feel like I would be genuinely sad if something messed up with this box.

  19. I just got my April box which is normally the first box I get every month and due to them overselling I didn’t get the lip liner. I will not be a happy girl if it happens again this month since I subscribed since day one!

    • Did they send you any substitute for the missing lip liner? I agree – I hope they can fully deliver on all of their subscription commitments.

      • Nope they said yes but I finally didn’t get anything so I emailed them again today and they have no more so they are sending me another mally lip gloss item. I told them I hope they don’t forget anything out of this box to cause that every box so far a missing lip item. This is crazy!

        • I was told they under ordered by 700 boxes! First I was told to choose a past box to get a dupe of. Then my box arrived with most of the items, except they subbed a small lip gloss I had previously received from them for the lip liner. I definitely was not happy. They claimed they sent post cards to people who weren’t getting the original, but I never received one. Tons of NEW subscribers received the full box just fine! Grrr. I’m still annoyed. This next box looks so good tho that I am definitely softening up….as long as they don’t mess me up again…

          • I think they did that to make sure the new subscribers were happy, cause April was my first box and they sent me all the items plus something else as a welcome gift :/ It sucks that that happens to people who’ve been with them since day one.

      • Yes I got a small lip gloss that I won’t use! I understand they want to grow their customer base, but take care of existing customers first and don’t let people subscribe when you don’t have enough inventory.

  20. I’m seriously just as excited by this spoiler! This is probably the #2 item for me right after the Foreo spoiler. I LOVE this mascara and I prefer the travel sizes so I’m never opposed to getting a high quality mascara sample! It just means I never have to buy mascara because I have plenty of samples to choose from

    • I didn’t see that it said it was a sample size. Or is everything usually a sample size? This will be my first Allure monthly box.

      • They are usually deluxe sample sized. Occasionally they send a full size lippy or such. The sizes are consistantly bigger than Birchbox….

      • Probably a sample size and wouldn’t be surprised if the nail polish or lippy is smaller size. Still a great box.

  21. I had cancelled my sub for this and then all these spoilers started coming in and I HAD to re-subscribe, of course! This box is going to be fantastic! I’m ready to get it NOW ?

  22. The May box is now sold out – not surprisingly! I love Allure!!!

    • Where did you see that? I just went to order one and it seemed to indicate it would be this box??

      • It’s weird, if you click on the link on Aluure’s twiiter page that states the mascara spoiler, it takes you to subscribe and it says across the top that it begins with the June box and starts shipping June 1. But if you just go to the page it still says May

    • I just went and it says it starts with may box

    • Good news, I just called customer care and the May box is still available. According to them, you have until May 9th to sign up and your first box will be the May box. I’m guessing boxes may sell out before then, but as long as the messaging at the top says orders start with the May box I think you should be good! Hope that helps!

      • Good to know! I saw the header at the top of their beauty box site saying orders would start with the June box. The header reads: “All orders will begin with our June 2016 box. The June box begins to ship on 6/1/2016.”

        But per Liz- sounds like May is still available. If you don’t have it – get it!!!

        • Weird – I’m seeing this in the header “The May box begins to ship on 4/29/2016All orders will begin with our May 2016 box.” I wonder what’s going on. Maybe call customer care too just to be safe if you recently placed an order to confirm.

          • Liz, I took a screenshot of the June message. But I’ve tried a couple of different links to the beauty box site and sometimes it says May and sometimes it says June.

            sorry if I created any confusion!

          • You didn’t – I think Allure did!

          • its saying june for me as well, honestly sometimes their customer service can be very uninformed, so I wouldn’t just rely on a call.

          • Same for me – it’s saying June. I emailed them, waiting for their reply now 🙁

  23. I know others will complain about mascara but I’m happy! Not only because the first 3 items alone are awesome but I love having the smaller size mascaras. That way I don’t feel guilty throwing away a half used mascara because it’s old. Mascara is one of the biggest germ collectors in the makeup lineup so I try to toss mine every 2 months but with trial sizes, I don’t have to worry at all!

  24. It’s a good mascara but I’ve already had it and would of been nice to get another one to try out.

  25. Ugh, I gave in and renewed my sub. It’s just too good 🙂

  26. Does everybody get the same items? Or there are variation ?

    • Everyone gets the same items. It looks like occasionally there is an exception if there’s a problem, but generally everyone gets the same thing.

  27. Oh man, I love that mascara. This box is killer.

  28. I’m a little disappointed with the mascara ONLY because I’ve received several samples of it already. BUT I do think it’s a good mascara, so it’s a quality inclusion.

    I wonder what the other FOUR (!!) products will be!

    • Maybe a skin care item/cream/lotion? Or is this mostly make up usually?

      I am thinking maybe a cleanser to go with the Foreo.

  29. I’m so happy excited! This will be my first one!

  30. After all the drama of waiting to get signed up for this box, they have definitely redeemed themselves. This box looks awesome so far. Can’t wait!

  31. Seriously?! I feel like it’s Christmas with this month’s box!!

    • It’s completely Christmas!!!!! I’m so excited! This will be my first Allure box!

      • This is the beauty sub box version of being in the audience at an Oprah’s Favorite Things taping. You get THIS, and THIS, and THIS!!!!!

        • OMG YESSS hahaha.

        • Hi Kara, omg it was my dream to be in that audience. This is my first Allure Box. Im so grateful to Liz for this site and to everyone for all the responses. Before MSA I was only getting Ipsy and just got Sephora Play but able to get one for my mother cause of here. Now I’ve subbed Julep and made 4 orders and first box not here yet. Also got Target and Amazon and now Allure.

          • Hi Kitty! You are going to love Allure!!!! Wouldn’t it be fun if Allure got their super fans together and did a favorite things unboxing event! I’ve always wondered what their office must look like and the treasures of beauty items within. Hint, hint to any Allure curators reading this thread!!!!!

  32. Wow That mascara looks amazing. I haven’t been this excited about a box in a while!

    • I know! I’m starting to think that we’ll be comparing boxes to the May 2016 Allure Beauty Box for months or years to come! 🙂

      • For sure! Boxycharm may be dethroned as my fav very soon! 😉
