Now, on to the items!
Moda Unicorn Crease Brush – Value $2.80
(FYI – there are variations of the November box this month, all subscribers will receive this item.)
This blending brush is designed for blending eyeshadow in the crease. The bristles are super soft, and who doesn’t love a unicorn handle?
Hey Honey Good Morning Serum – 10ml Value $15 (included in all variations)
This serum is so lightweight and absorbs almost immediately. It’s designed to help improve skin tone and can double as a makeup primer, too.
Juice Beauty Crayon in Malibu – FULL SIZE! Value $22
This lip crayon is so creamy and moisturizing! It has good pigment (slightly sheer), and a subtle, glossy finish.
(Swatched in lower photo.)
Doucce Eyeshadow in Bailey 37 – FULL SIZE! Value $10
At the beginning of the year, Allure sent out a 4-piece magnetic Doucce palette to subscribers, and now they’ve sent two additional eyeshadow pans that you can swap in.
This shimmer midnight blue eyeshadow is gorgeous, excellent pigment, too!
Here it is swatched beneath the Juice Beauty lip crayon:
Too Cool For School Egg Mellow Cream -15ml Value $10.20
I love this stuff! It’s a 5-in-1 cream that can be used as a serum, priming moisturizer, eye cream, neck cream, and sleeping mask! It’s super hydrating and infused with egg yolk extract, egg white, and collagen to help firm skin. (Plus I love this type of product for travel – keeps my cosmetic bag light!)
Too Cool For School Egg Cream Mask Hydration – Value $6
And if you like the cream, I think you’ll love this mask, too. Again, it is super hydrating, and I liked the subtle scent!
Caudalie Resveratrol Eye – 5 ml Value $20.67
This is a third the size of the full-size version! It’s a clear gel serum designed to help lift the look of eyelids, reduce puffiness and dark circles, and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Like any good eye product, I found it to be gentle and absorb almost immediately. No immediately noticeable results, but I’m hoping this sample should last me a week or two!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $86.67! That’s great for a $15 beauty box! Definitely one of my favorite Allure Beauty Boxes of the year. Full-size makeup + lots of quality skincare? Yes, please!
One thing to call out about the November box – there are variations this month. They are back to sending everyone the same boxes in December. (Check out the amazing December spoilers.)
