Cargo Cosmetics Colorstick in Champagne – .25 oz Value $20
I thought this was full-size when I first saw it. (It is .25 oz compared to the .35 oz of the full-size version.)
The formula itself is great. It goes on smoothly, has a ton of shimmer, and blends easily. Here it is swatched:
Beautycounter Lengthening Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $29
Yay for full sizes! I really like the Beauty Counter brand (they are ingredient conscious), so I was excited to try this. I think it’s a great mascara if you are going for a natural look. It gave me dark black lashes with plenty of definition and a decent amount of length.
If you are looking for a lot of drama, volume, and length, though, this is not your mascara.
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads (10 count) – Value $5
These pads are designed to be a “daily treatment pad that contains just the right amount of lactic and glycolic acids to safely and effectively exfoliate, tone, and brighten.”
They’re free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates, too! I found the formula to be gentle on my skin, and I’m hoping to notice a brighter complexion in 10 days!
OLAY Eyes Pro-Retinol Eye Treatment – .23 oz Value $11.50
This is almost half the size of the full-size version! It’s designed to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles in 4 weeks. The formula is a lightweight cream (almost gel) that absorbs almost instantly. It was gentle on my skin, and the scent was barely noticeable.
Grande Lips Hydrating Lip Plumper – Value $10?
(No size listed on this sample, so I’m estimating the value/size at a little less than half the full-size version.)
This formula is gluten and paraben free, and it is supposed to help plump lips. It gives a good amount of gloss with no stickiness – so at least it passes my lip gloss test! The formula tingles a little bit, but isn’t too annoying. I haven’t noticed any major plumping differences, but I rarely do with this type of product!
Red Flower Moroccan Rose Candle Tea Light – Value $2.50
This scent is described as a blend of “rose otto, bulgarian rose, damascus rose, along with musky undertones of patchouli and coriander.”
I thought this was a nice addition to a February box, and I really like the scent! (I’m not normally a fan of rose scents, but this one works for me.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $78. That’s great for a $15 beauty box! I think this is a fab February box from Allure, and I’m really impressed with the sample sizes this month, too.
