Now, on to the items!
MAC Lipstick in Lustering – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $18.50
(Subscribers will either receive this shade or Ruby Woo.)
I don’t usually wear a bold red lip, so I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this – it’s more like a glossy sheer watermelon pink. (But if you want more pigment you can add another swipe.)
So, this ended up being surprisingly wearable for me! Here it is swatched:
Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial – 15 ml Value $24
(According to the booklet, subscribers will either receive this or Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream.)
This facial is designed to brighten complexion, and alleviate fine lines, free radical damage, and enlarged pores.
You leave it on for 20 minutes, it stays tacky throughout, then rinse off with water. Immediate results? SUCH smooth skin!
IGK Rich Kid Coconut Oil Gel – .5 oz Value $2.90
(Subscribers will receive this or Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast – 3 oz)
This is a coconut-oil infused styling product designed to be applied on damp hair followed by air drying. It smells amazing (sadly, the scent didn’t linger in my hair), and I found it added a little texture to my hair, too. I have the type of hair that never air dries into beautiful beachy curls, and this didn’t change that for me, but I still like it as a styling cream.
Tarte Tarteist Pro Cruelty-Free Lashes (Center of Attention) – Retail Value $12
I’ve been wearing lashes for unboxing videos lately, so I’m thrilled to have another set! And these are natural-ish looking, too. (Let us know if you’d like to see a tutorial for using these lashes.)
Tarte tarteist Pro Lash Adhesive – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $9
And props to Allure + tarte for including lash glue with the lashes! This glue dries clear, is easy to use, and like all tarte products, it’s ingredient-conscious.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $66.40 I think that’s a great value for a $15 beauty box. And this is such a glam + fab box! I love the brands and the products! (And again, I’m so pleased that Allure also sent lash glue with the lashes!
