Thanks to Leanna we now have the list of products!

What do you think of the product list this year? Finding Tarte on the list was a nice surprise for me! (Click here to learn more about each product).

FYI The Allure Beauty Box will go on sale April 29th at 12:01 PM EST (that’s a minute after noon).

If you’re new to Allure Beauty Box, it’s a limited edition box that goes on sale once a quarter and sells out in minutes. I make sure to do lots of reminders, so to make sure you don’t miss the next one, sign up for the My Subscription Addiction daily newsletter!

Also, check out my reviews of past Allure Beauty Boxes so you can see why these sell out SO quickly!

  1. Oops! Just saw!

    • I can’t get onto the site to buy the beauty box.

      • Message from Allure: Our site went down when the sale was to go live at 12:01 pm today – we’re so sorry for the inconvenience. To make this fair game we’re going to reset the sale for next Tuesday, May 6 at the same time, 12:01PM EST.

        Thank you!

  2. So….12:10 in what time zone?? I really want this box!! Do I just click on the link you provided? Just need to know when!

  3. Does anyone know what color the IT Cosmetics CC Cream will be? Or is it something that you can choose the color when you order? Thanks!

  4. It is too much hair stuff but I want it anyways. I’ll just gift the stuff I really can’t use. It’s a great value. Consider what we spend on some of the monthly boxes – and they r mostly sample sizes and usually only 4-5 items.

  5. Is this open internationally? What are payment methods?

    • I believe this only ships to the US.

  6. holy hair-care! haha. still want it though.

  7. How many hairsprays can one girl use? None of my friends use hairspray either. Once I even tried to donate a couple of hairsprays from a beauty box to a women’s shelter and they rejected them 🙁

  8. LIZ—
    How are people getting on this email list to preorder all of the boxes For the year? I always order the box like you, but im a pharmaceutical rep so im always in drs offices all day without a computer so I try to escape and campout on my phone to order. I would really benefit from ordering in advance.
    Appreciate your help and I read your blog everyday and suggest it to everyone! BC it’s the best!

  9. It would be great if it weren’t so heavy on the hair products. Otherwise, looks like a nice box.

  10. I hope I’m able to get this. The value is WAY worth it. The way I see it, I’m paying for the IT CC Cream and the Tarte Mascara and getting everything else for free. lol. And that’s a win for me. And I love the fact that it’s all full size products.

  11. IT CC cream is the best I’ve used, my HG foundation, that one product makes the box worth it. Wonder if you get to select the color or they just automatically send medium?

  12. If I don’t get this box I’m going into a deep depression. I want this soooooooo bad!

  13. Wow, that’s a lot of hair spray and hair products. A little disappointing after seeing some of the last boxes, but I’m still thinking the value of this for the items I *would* actually use would still end up saving me money in the long run! Setting a calendar alert for the 29th…

  14. Is this box available to Canadians as well?

  15. what time is that CST?

  16. I was so excited about this one until I saw the products. Way too much hair stuff.

    • I agree! Waaaay too much hair stuff! This is not the box for me.

  17. Disappointed with the list. It should be renamed to hair care and styling box. So many hair products. Not cool. Also, I see two blue colored nail polishes, two mascaras. No eyeshadows. Feeling a bit disappointed

  18. Even if you don’t use all of the products, it is still an extremely amazing deal, use them as gifts, trade them, sell them totally worth it and i’m excited to see tarte too and redken and IT cosmetics!

  19. I think I’am going to pass on this, some of the products I really don’t like.

  20. Is this a US ONLY box?

  21. That value…!

  22. That Rembrandt toothpaste is not $20. I bought it for like $8 at walmart before (yes, the exact same toothpaste)

    • Thanks – that was a typo on my part – fixed! 🙂

  23. Wow this is tough, the value is certainly there. Darn I’m so stocked up on hair products. I can use all the hair stuff probably but I’m very fair skin so I’m sure the cc will be too dark, don’t like the lipstick shade and don’t wear gloss. The box was only $40 so it didn’t go up that much but I’m guessing the shipping went up. If I didn’t have so many hair products stockpiled I’d jump at getting this, but not the preorder, just try to get the box. I was lucky last time.

  24. Does the Allure box contain good sizes samples? Are they full or deluxe sized normally? Does anyone know? Thanks! 🙂

    • They will all be full sized! 🙂

  25. I’m glad they included a good mix even if it’s a bit heavy on the hair products. It is, after all, a sampling service. I don’t do a ton of styling on a daily basis but I’ve discovered tons of new faves through boxes like this. I think it’s important to be open minded and give things a try (except in the case of allergies). Then decide if you like them or not. Otherwise, if you don’t test new things, you stay in the same rut perpetually. But of course I’ll try anything once, lol. I’m very excited about this box and hope I don’t miss it again like last time due to selling out. I do think folks should be limited to one per person until after the initial sales period. That makes it a bit more fair for all and it’s just good business–it’s better for the companies featured to get their products into more new customers’ hands than fewer due to potential buyers being denied the opportunity to become new customers because others were allowed to buy multiples. Just my opinion and my wish.

  26. Will there be a variation in shades? I’d love the IT CC cream, for instance, but the medium is too dark for my fair skin.

  27. I’m glad you posted the list for a couple of reasons:

    (1) I totally wouldn’t use most of the hair products (I wear my hair straight and I don’t use heat treatments)
    (2) I had time to look up the ingredients; toothpastes with sodium lauryl sulfate give me canker sores and high-SPF Neutrogena sunscreens give me a horrible rash (I can use their low-SPF ones)

    So as tempting as it is to order a box for this price with the value you’ve listed, it’s not as good a deal if I can’t use half the stuff. Even though it is quite easy for me to be at the computer at the time the sale starts, I’ll pass on this one and leave a box for someone else who can enjoy more of the items.

  28. That Tarte mascara happens to be my favorite. I picked it up for $10 during Ulta’s 21 days of beauty and it’s the 1st of many that does not flake. I’ve tried tons, from Covergirl, Revlon, Too Faced, Smashbox, Mally & UD. Tarte is the best for me.

  29. i was so excited about this, but not quite sure after seeing the product list. I never style my hair, so it seems like most of the products will go to waste or the swap pile.

  30. I really I hope I can get one of these!!!

  31. I hope I remember at 9:01am my time to order. lol I have yet to remember to order when this box comes out.. by the time I do, they are gone…love the products in this box.

  32. Looks good; can’t wait!

  33. How did you preorder the box? I would be interested in doing that if still available.

    • The preorder was offered through an email from Allure. You were able to preorder, but you had to preorder all three boxes.

      • Does anyone know when that email offer ended?? Thanks!

        • It ended April 22nd

  34. the value seems so promising! but i’m definitely through with hair styling products, there are 9 of the 25 that are hair styling (that doesn’t include hair masks). i wish there were more sunscreens or something.

  35. I pre-purchased mine so I’m for sure getting this box. I’ve been buying these boxes (especially the summer editions) since I was in college many years ago and I’m a little surprised that there aren’t more sunscreen products included. Maybe for the July box there will be? But this does look like a pretty good deal otherwise! The IT, TanTowel and Tarte products total up to $81 retail and those are the 3 that I’m most looking forward to using.

    • did u preorder? ^^

    • Crystal,
      Did you recently pre-order, or do you know if you are still able to?

      • They asked people if they were interested in preordering about 2 weeks ago. The first 500 people to respond were later sent invitations with a link to actually pay for all three 2014 boxes in advance for $199.95. I took the bait and purchased mine in advance and it looks like I paid a little extra to not have to hassle with buying it when the boxes are released.

    • I jumped on at the second it “opened” last time and they were sold out. Some posts mentioned that they had bought 2 hours before the announced time!

    • How do you find out if your pre order went through? I did this but have not heard from anyone. Are you sent something letting you know if you ordered in time? There were only 500 available.
      If mine did not go through how do I order on Tuesday at 12:01 PM? Could someone please let me know what the website is for this? Thank you. Karen

  36. Wow, I am SOLD! I bought the Fall box last year and loved it, but I have avoided the others because it seemed to be heavy on the drug store brands, I think this mix is perfect, Tarte, Oscar Blandi, Cargo, IT Cosmetics, Redken: I am very impressed by the product list!

  37. It says $44.95 on the allure website but I bet they will add $10 shipping.

    • I can’t find this on the website. Can someone post the link?

  38. At

  39. How much is this box

  40. How much is this box?

    • I just looked, it is $44.95 for $350 worth of product.
