Each box comes with a booklet detailing the items included and why the Allure Beauty Editors selected them.

Now, on to the items!

Make Up For Ever Artist Everywhere Pencil in Wherever Walnut 606  – .7 g Value $9

This is half the size of the full-size version! The color is great for a nude/pink lip for me, and it wears down nicely, too. (Swatched in lower photo.)

Doucce Precision Eyeliner in Blue – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $22

Wow! This color is bold and the pigment is intense! And even more importantly, this eyeliner stays put!

Here it is swatched beneath the lip liner:

I’m used to getting mostly black eyeliners in subscription boxes, so this was a nice change of pace!

Feel Harmony Rose Petal Facial Mask – 1 oz Value $16.18

This is a hydrating gel mask. Just apply a thin layer and let it sit or 10 minutes, then rinse to get a dose of moisture. It’s gentle, subtly scented with rose, and very hydrating. (Allure recommends storing this in the fridge for a cooling sensation.)

Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip Balm – Deluxe Size! (Update Value $15.35)

This lip balm is moisturizing, gives your lips a subtle shine, and there is no stickiness! Plus it has a light, citrus flavor that I love!

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil – 7.5 ml Value $27.50

(This is half the size of the full-size version!)

This is a retinol oil that is designed to boost the look and feel of skin plumpness, while improving the appearance of wrinkles, redness, and pores for visibly younger-looking skin. Most retinol products aren’t oils, so this is a nice change, and I’m happy to report that it was gentle on my skin.

I’ve had good success with other Sunday Riley products, so I’m hopeful that by the time this bottle is empty, my skin will be looking better!

Ouai Leave In Conditioner – 25 ml Value $2.79

This leave-in conditioner has the signature Ouai scent – it’s almost like hair perfume! The formula is light enough that it didn’t weigh down my hair, and it helped add moisture and fight frizz.

Derma E Sun Protection Mineral Powder SPF 30 – 1.25 g Value $2.86

First, a word of caution! Be careful pulling off the inner sticker:

I ended up pulling off the lid sifter entirely and well… I am currently covered in it. I still managed to save some to test, though! This is a fine powder that is perfect for setting makeup – it goes on sheer. And you get the added bonus of SPF. (Allure still recommends using a cream sunscreen as well, though, to ensure full coverage.)

Olay Regenerist Whip – 15 ml Value $8.53

(This is a bonus item!) I am always drawn to “whipped” beauty creams – something about the light-as-air texture is so appealing! And this one doesn’t disappoint. It also gave my skin a smooth, matte texture that was perfect for makeup application.

And this month, subscribers will also receive a coupon code for $20 off any Bauble Bar purchase:

Valid on a full-priced product only. Expires 8/31/18. Cannot be combined with other offers. Excludes gift cards.

Let me know what you are planning to use your code on! (Right now I’m thinking about personalizing an iPhone case!)

Verdict: This box has a value of about $110.36. I think that’s an amazing value! (I’m already thinking of buying a second box!) There were so many items in this box, and the sizes were great, too. I definitely recommend grabbing the July box if you haven’t already!

  1. Did anyone else receive a pair of baublebar pair of earrings in July’s box?

    • No but I did get a $50 perfume set in June!

  2. I receive a pair of baublbar earrings..did anyone else?

  3. My BAUBLEBAR.COM code is ALLURE-4IT1F if anyone would like to use it.

  4. I’ve decided not to use my code either. I entered it, but changed my mind and canceled. I hope it still works. ALLURE-7Q1AE

  5. Has anyone been able to use 2 Baublebar codes under 1 account?

    Btw, regarding the lip balm, it’s strange that some people received it empty, I just wanted to mention that so far I have been using it for over 2 weeks almost daily and it seems there is still a lot in it. The tube does feel kind of light, but I don’t have to squeeze much to get stuff out. Just FYI, that some tubes seem ok, but I would definitely let Allure know if yours was empty!

    • I felt like my tube was empty…but, I stored it upright, and I have been using it for days, and there is plenty of product. When the tube was on it’s side, I was sure it was empty!

  6. Well, like most my lip balm was practically empty which was super disappointing. And did anyone notice that the booklet had a girl wearing a royal blue eyeliner and the inside mentioned the eyeliner was a custom royal blue (also pictured as royal blue) but the one we all received was def sky blue…..it even mentions blurring the custom royal blue into a sky blue. Did not make a ton of sense to me and I would have preferred the metallic royal blue pictured.
    In truth I subbed for the Luna oil as I was almost out of the full size I bought almost a year ago. The full size is worth it as it lasts so long. This small size will last a couple of months! Over all I am happy.

  7. Allure Baublebar code I’m not using: ALLURE-9RYUJ

  8. I’m not using my code, if anyone wants it, here’s mine: ALLURE-C2ANB

    • How Are the codes used & where do you apply them if you are subscribed? I’ve checked the faq section & can’t find this info. Thank you!

    • Thanks for the code Effie!

  9. Am I the only one that hasn’t received their box?

    • I still haven’t received my box either.

      • I haven’t gotten mine neither. I received my tracking info last Friday and today is still this message “No status yet available”

      • I’m waiting for mine STILL
        Guess I have to call cs..
        Got the shipping email at the end of July and tracking shows no info..
