  1. I’m very disappointed I signed up in April and was informed I would receive the may box and was charged for it but I never received the shipping email so I emailed allure and a week later never got a reply so I emailed them again and just got a reply saying that the u no longer have the may box so I will have to wait till june

  2. is this box sold out?

    • It must be, it is now saying shipments will begin with the June box.

    • I just subscribed! I’ve been thinking about it for some time now. That lipstick and nail polish were just too lovely to pass up! I keep hearing wonderful things about it! I hope this month is still available or I’m going to be super bummed ๐Ÿ™ At the top of the website it said, “the May box begins to ship out on 4/29/16. All orders will begin with our May 2016 box.” So I would imagine it’s still available (:

  3. So I was feeling very minimalist and smug giving up Birchbox and Ipsy to make room for Sephora Play. That was going to be my ONE beauty box, but damn if Allure just didn’t make it too impossible to let this one slip by. I HAD to get it.

    • Me too. No Ipsy or Birchbox. I got into Play, but feel like I’m going to cancel it. Allure seems to really give size items, and things I really can use. So I’m cancelling Play. I tried one month Petit Vour, but I will have to see how it works out. But I like Allure, and I swear they are the only ones who ever send out the really cute mini samples of perfumes, not just the vial. And those little mini’s are so cute.

      • Why don’t you like Play? Everyone else seems to be raving about it, but I’m on the waitlist so I don’t have any experience with it.

        • I know you were asking someone else, but figured I’d give my opinion. I LIKE play, but think a lot of it is the fact it was only available in a few cities and a lot of people are on the wait list, as well as the hype- it’s sephora. However, in all honesty it’s not my favorite- the samples are typically pretty small, and they always send a small perfume sample you could get in store for free. It’s typically a hit or miss for me personally. I do enjoy the “magazine” that comes with it, but where monetary value of samples is concerned, other subs seem more bang for your buck. If I had to pick between play and allure I’d pick allure in a heartbeat. Allure consistently gives awesome sized products that I will actually use and I like their mini magazine even more. I get ipsy, Birchbox, GLOSSYBOX, good being, play and allure ( ridiculous!) and allure is my favorite in terms of what I receive always. Birchbox’s amazing points system is what makes them a contender for best sub overall.

          • Thanks for letting me know! I’m trying to figure out what I’m looking for in subscription boxes, and I’d like to trim down to one regular one and treat myself to an extra every so often, but I haven’t decided between Birch box, ipsy, and allure and i really shouldn’t get all three the way I am now!

        • I really like Play. Allure is $5 more a month than Play correct? That’s why I won’t compare the 2 boxes. I tend to compare it to Birchbox and I think the sample sizes are the same as the ones I used to receive in Birchbox, which is the same price. Even better, they send 5 samples + 1 perfume, so the perfume does not count towards the samples. I hated getting perfume as a sample in my Birchbox. I’m also happy the sample of perfume is small because I have way too many thanks to my subs! I think some people don’t like Play too because they have already received the samples by using their Beauty Insider points, but I tend to bank mine, so the items are usually new to me.

          They don’t have the points like Birchbox, but you get 10 points a month for the cost of the box and the 50 points card to use when you purchase any item at Sephora. I’m getting my first Allure box this month and if I love it, I will keep both. I don’t plan on giving up Play any time soon.

      • My thoughts exactly!! I signed up last week for Allure & I just got my 1st Play box so to compensate I just cancelled Gloosybox (I will still recieve May’s since it’s after the 19th) & I cancelled my 2nd BB I won’t get rid of my 1st BB tho since I’m on that I’m a VIP & I get free shipping & love their points system! But I look at it like this I can take my extra 31.00 a month & use it for Allure & Playbox ?

  4. Question ….

    I stopped shipment for 2 months due to finances. If I sign up again today, will I get the May box or the April box?

    • When I signed up yesterday it specified that shipping begins with the May box.

    • You will get the May box:)

      • Thanks!

    • You will get the May Box ?

  5. Is anyone else having trouble with the $5 off link working? I feel like I’m losing money if I DON’T purchase this box :/

  6. Yay!!! I finally caved and got my first Allure Beauty Box. The spoilers plus eight products were just too enticing! You’re killing me with your awesome site! Thanks!

  7. does everybody gets same products in same month box?

    • For the most part yes, but there have been a few times people get some differences. Like last month some people got a lip liner and some got a lip gloss. I honestly think kthat happens if/when they run out of an item.

  8. I really hope the Make up forever item is one of the new Charli XCX waterproof eyeliners, they have a seafoam green shade that would match that polish perfectly… coincidence???

    • Omg yes please!!!! That is what I have been hoping for!

  9. I said I won’t look anymore spoiler, but I did, lol. Only 3 items and totaling already $70 and we have yet to receive 5 more items? Wow. It seems that Allure is on redemption from April box that they first promised 7 items totaling like $95, then dropped 1 item without replacing it (but managed to send bonus items to brand new subscribers). I hope they keep it up with the values and items that we don’t receive in other beauty boxes! I am product overload but keeping Allure and still signed up Play! by Sephora… not to mention that I am committed to a few subs yearly or with discount coupon…

  10. I hit the link that said here and signed up from your page but I didn’t see a code for you I hope you will get credit for it

    • I’m pretty sure you do, I signed up for Allure, forgetting about this coupon and I got the $5 off. So yay!

  11. I’m actually more excited over this box than the Beauty Thrills Box! LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Same here. I’m actually skipping the thrills box and getting one more of this box.

      • How do you order an extra?

  12. Dang it. I go back and forth on this sub ALL the time. I think I want it, then I get it and I’m like meh. So I cancel thinking it’s ok but I need to save money. Then I get sucked back in again.

    I love the color of the nail polish and I’m mainly resubbing for the face scrubber thing. Lipstick will be far too pale for me, but the other two will make up for it.

    I need a subscription box intervention!!

  13. That looks like a nice lipstick. Just hoping it works with my skin color.
    This will be my first Allure box and I can’t wait. Finally bit the bullet, and we’ll see which of my other subs will go if I keep this one.

  14. Allure Instagram shows a Make Up For Ever pic with lots of colorful eyeliners. They are my favorite eyeliners. Wonder what the other 4 brands are.

  15. Ahhh, I can.not.wait. I honestly don’t know how they do it, it sounds way to good to be true!. 70 dollar value and were only at 3/8 items!!?? This box is just hands down THE BEST, now the customer service needs a bit of work. I’ve had a few problems in that area, but in their defense after a few phone calls everything got sorted out. Well done allure, you are the leader of the pack in my books! Early May just cant not come soon enough!!! This month is gonna be a good one for me, first box with Julep (54$ value for 19.99), the amazon beauty box (looks AMAZING, just the nail polish alone makes the box, not to mention I got the promo code and it looks that only 4/13 items are foils). Birchbox (hoping for a decent one) and then THIS BOX. Oh, not to mention if I like/get the target box… ugh, I just love sub boxes so much lol

    • Yes they are the best! I have always had great customer service, prompt to answer, willing to fix any problems and if one item is damaged, they send an entirely new box!!! It is crazy! I love it.

  16. Love EVERYTHING so far!!! I can’t wait for this box!!! ??

  17. I subbed just to get the Forea; I want the rechargeable version but I wanted to try it out first and this is the perfect way to do so! What a fab box for $10.82.

  18. I. Love. This. Box. ??

  19. the lipstick is meh for me, but everything else looks great!

  20. I’m getting ready ( hesitating) to cancel a few of my subscriptions. I have way too many. I’ve alway said that I would never give up Boxycharm, but I think that I will have to let it go because I just can’t give up Allure! I’m loving this lip color!

    • I agree. I really didn’t want to, but in an effort to save money and get a good bang for my buck.

    • I gave up Boxycharm and Ipsy for this sub. I still have Glossybox but after the last few boxes I’m even thinking of letting it go to. Allure has become my top box. I always get something I think Meh and end up loving and there is always a variety of things that I actually will use. Plus when you take into the account they sporadically drop in bonus items and the extra boxes no other sub can touch them. I still have Walmart and sometimes I get Target but hands down for the money, amount, quality and variety of items this sub is the best out there right now.

  21. I’m so excited for this box! Omg! Allure you have been my favorite box for a while BC you are always up to date and on trend!

    I really wish the lipstick came in a pretty pink color or even red instead, BC this nude is bleh, but oh well! Lol

    • It’s actually a rose shade and not a nude. I have it and the matching gloss. It’s definitely more pink than neutral.

  22. I seriously signed up as soon as I saw that polish! I have to have it, it’s gorgeous ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. I have several of these lipsticks and am a big fan.

    • Is the texture smooth or is it kind of dry and waxy like so many matte lipsticks?

      • Nice and smooth, but these are not true mattes.

        • Thanks! Good to know. I’m not a big fan of matte lipsticks but I’ll give this one a try.

  24. Finally subscribed, been meaning to but so busy with finals. I’ve looked at past reviews and this box is way better than most IMO. I hope I’m still in time for the May box ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Does anyone knows when this boxes start to ship? I hope I get it before mother’s day!!

    • Shipping starts around the 29th

  26. Does anyone know when they usually ship?

    • They start shipping out on 4/29, I usually have mine the first week of the month.

  27. This is a great box for 15.00 a month. The lipstick will go great with the palette from Pixie that was in the March PS box. I can pull this one off much better than I can a nude color. And eight items this time.

  28. I signed up! This box looks great. I’ve been on a subscription box break since the new year. I had to try this one though. The face cleanser is so unique. The colors of both the lip and polish are beautiful. So excited. With the $5 off it was a no brainer.

  29. This looks really good. I am in desperate need of nail polish.

  30. I have a question, has anyone referred a friend and got the bonus box you apparently get for doing that? I saw this information in an email from Allure and was curious about it

    • Yes and I got 2 April boxes.

    • I received the email for the “extra surprise box” for sending to friends via social media, I sent it to my Facebook friends and it is on my page, so we shall see what happens – let’s keep in touch. Kristin Miller on Facebook

    • One of my friends just signed up through my link. I got an email saying they would send my bonus box when my friend’s box ships. I’m a horrible salesperson. Now I have a case of guilt and really hope that she loves the Allure box as much as I do.

  31. Wow a lipstick shade I can actually wear. So glad I subscribed finally to this box!

  32. I can’t wait! All three of these spoilers are amazing, and the MUFE product sounds promising, too! I had canceled several months back, but I had to resubscribe after the Forea and nail polish spoilers, and I think I’ll be keeping this one for awhile now!

  33. Do you think this will be delivered in time for Mother’s day? I just signed up for the sub last week.

    • I usually get mine mid month but I guess there’s a chance. I wouldn’t count on it though because it just depends when they mail yours out.

  34. This subscription is AMAZING! Way to go Allure!!!

  35. Allure is the best box!!!! LOVE IT

  36. For the price, Allure rocks!

  37. Dear Birchbox, I’m sure we’ll be back together some day, but I can only handle so many beauty samples a month and Allure won my heart (and $) this month and last month.

    • And this is my favorite comment this month! So excited for Allure. Birchbox and I are never ever getting back together lol.

  38. lovin everything in this box so far… allure has become my new favorite box!!!! can’t wait to get it and the lipstick looks awesome so happy it isn’t red i always get red and can’t wear it!!!!

    • Me too. I have two subs and the trills box. I have dropped most everything else because Allure is so much better!

      • same here i just cancelled my birchbox before i came on here … i love their point system but the samples seemed to be smaller and smaller and when i received my first allure box last month and seen the spoilers this month i was like ya allure can have my money lol… and i just got the play box so i had to get rid of it!!!! but i still think allure will be my favorite!!!

  39. So excited every month and I wish I wouldn’t look at the spoilers so I could be surprised, but I can’t stop myself!!!
    Thank you & I love Allure!!!

  40. Dun dun dun what will number 5 be? The lipstick they will leave out of mine. So fare they have skipped every lip product out of all my boxes. I still haven’t gotten the lip liner from the last box they promised to send me ?

    • Omgosh, I didn’t get my lip liner either. I got a small sample of lip gloss from Mally instead. But I was so sad because I was definitely looking forward to that lip liner!

      • I got liner and would have prefered gloss, lol. They can’t please us all I guess. ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. So looking forward to getting my box!! Awesome spoilers!

  42. This box gets more amazing with every spoiler!!

  43. I just subbed…But then realized does that mean I’ll be getting the April box or just the May one? I don’t want the April one which is why I’m asking but May looks so good so far!

    • I believe the website says that you’ll be getting the May box when you subscribe, so I think you’re good ๐Ÿ™‚

    • You won’t get the April box. It sold out end of March/beginning of August and they were actually short on boxes for regular subscribers. It will be the May box for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • That was supposed to say “beginning of APRIL” not august, sorry!

    • May.

  44. Finally, a shade of lipstick I can wear! I’m loving this box more and more!

  45. Had to sign up for a subscription! Too good to pass up…

  46. I’m really, really trying to start wearing lipstick – my boxes have given me enough – and this is such a pretty neutral shade.

  47. just keeps getting better! Allure is kicking butt now!

  48. I signed during the last spoiler. I am so excited!!! The box keeps getting better!
