Holy Crap! So first Allure sent me my June box first Then today I Finally received my May box – that was annoying since they charged me for my June box before I got my May box – luckily I cancelled and they refunded me for BOTH BOXES!

But onto the Awesome part…

my MAY 2019 box contained a 3.4oz BOTTLE OF EAU DE PARFUM BY BADGLEY MISCHKA!!

Wow!! I wasn’t expecting that!!

along with the Parfum, I received the 6 other items too!!!

Wow! Thanks Allure!

I actually like the Laritzy. I put it on after a good balm. Soft, pretty shade. Not old lady at all. In fact, most “old” lady’s I come across wear coral or red lips. I could not talk my mother in law into a beautiful rosy mauve color. Looked lovely on her, but the very next day, she was coral again!

No matter what, Allure is still SO much better than the other options. I am one bag away from canceling Ipsy. As soon as my 600 point award gets here in the July bag, I am out. Allure will be the last sub standing.

I usually love Allure Box but I cancelled this month. Nothing coming in the May box appeals to me…not one single thing. Also, I liked Allure a lot better when there weren’t as many variations. Box envy is real y’all. Lol

Box envy is even more real with Ipsy. I should have taken that $10 a box for a year when my annual ended with Birchbox. At least you have curated to choose from. I wish Ipsy would have that option. One more highlighter and I am going to pop!

Cancelled. I just received my box today and got the frizz sheets (+self tanner, concealer lips, half empty face wash), despite being a subscriber since December 2017. The Amore Pacific would have made it worth it for me, but I’m on product overload and not excited about June. Emailed to cancel and depending on future spoilers, may sign up through Amazon. Allure has really gone downhill.

I thought I was being picky, but I’m glad to hear someone else say A) the product packaging is often just about 3/4 full and B) CONCEALER LIPS. When the product doesn’t fill packaging that is already small to begin with, you don’t really get to try it well enough to really decide whether to fork over the big money to get a full size. As for the lip color, I agree 100%. If I wanted to look like I had no color in my lips, I’d just cover over them with other makeup. In my last feedback email to Allure regarding the BB, I said to start sending out lip products with some character. What are you referring to with Amazon?

If you go through amazon to get allure it’s easy to pause and put on hold I believe if I’m right .. without having to constantly cancel and resub 🙂

I’m disappointed in this month’s box. I’m currently unemployed and in a financial pinch. This might be the month I finally cancel my Allure box after subbing to only this one for a few years (I used to be a Birchbox subscriber, but left around the time I signed up for Allure). Allure boxes occasionally feature some real treasures, but you’ll get lots of duplicates, a narrow selection in terms of skin care products, and limited colors with any makeup samples. I have received physical exfoliators repeatedly for years even though I don’t use them (I’ll use them in the shower but I dry brush my body so I don’t need this type of exfoliator). Most lipsticks have been from great brands like Nars — a couple years ago, Allure even gave subscribers a set of Marc Jacobs glosses (my favorite). This month, I got another nude lipgloss listed above (that makes your lips disappear, look chapped) that washes out your skin tone. I keep getting the same old lady pink shades of lipstick, an occasional red (those were good), but too many of these putty-colored, disgusting glosses, and the past eyeshadow selections this year have been decidedly in the orange family, a tone that doesn’t flatter me much. The makeup colors are where I’d want to play the most; Allure sends you numerous black or dark brown liners that are subpar. I think this box is no longer meeting my needs or curiosity most months and will probably cancel. I didn’t like one thing in this month’s box. The liquid eyeshadow seemed promising at first and has a high pay off color-wise, but if you sheer it out (if you don’t want metal foiled lids during the day), you are left with a sprinkling of coarse, gaudy glitter — what a shame. Not pleased this month. Most boxes would rate about a 5 or 6 for me (with 10 being the best — there have been maybe 3-4 of those in the past 3 years). This box rates a 2. I also don’t understand the move to placing everything in the plastic pouch vs the box (which is at least biodegradable).

I totally agree with you about the obnoxious repetition with those awful pale-colored “nude” glosses/liquid lipsticks. The quality of the products are decent, but where’s the color? I also do not need yet another black liquid eyeliner or mascara to try every other box.

Exactly. I am as pale as a ghost, but still don’t have the nerve to try them. Called off work today because I really need a mental health day. Still not gonna try them. I feel for women of color who received these. What a dumb product to put in this box. And another tanning product in June! I would really love to see more Korean skin care in these boxes. The Amorepacific is a wonderful cream. And ladies, if you ever receive face cream you don’t like for your face, remember that your arms, hands and tops of your feet can really benefit from it. So many have claimed to have tossed out products. It broke my heart to read how many claim to have tossed the Skinceuticals ce ferulic. I can’t afford that ham-smelling stuff, but if I lived near you, I might have dug through your trash to find it….lol.

The girl I talked to added up 4 or 5 skincare items the ABH lip gloss and I think a hair item but I told them the past 3 boxes were all things I have gotten from them either the month prior in Dec. Or Jan. I don’t know the sizes or what I’m getting exactly except the tansy night oil she asked about a few others that were options and if I hadn’t gotten it she put it on the box. I called and was nice but told her I was upset that I cancelled other boxes to keep this one and asked if it’s normal so maybe she was being empathetic with me. I’d call again if I was you maybe since I had an issue with so many things that’s why.

I REALLY want the self Tanner to try! I love to be tan and I love the Norvell self tan products, they are “purple” based and matchy cool skin tone much better! So I love trying new tanning products. I used to buy St Tropez products but it left me too orange and I know how to apply etc so I am hoping with the sample I’ll like it! Sometimes I run out of my fave and I have to order it, but Ulta carries the at Tropez products so if this product works for my skin tone it’s a great back up

I feel ya. I didn’t get the Anastasia lip product this month or the Tarte lip paint last month. So yea not really digging all the product variations. I don’t mind paying a little extra than I did for BB, but the box should be a consistently better product every month. If they don’t wow me soon, I will go seek another subscription box.

I also didn’t get the lipstick, but got those crummy hair samples instead. Along with the worst color of eyeshadow of the three, and a gold eyeliner, neither of which I’ll use. I’ve been with Allure for over 4 years, with no breaks, and this was easily the worst box. And it was supposed to be such a special collaboration. What a joke.

I received the same thing, Nubian pallet and an eyeliner I’ve never heard of. I’m super disappointed. Definitely feel like I got some leftovers.

I called and told them I got almost the same box March & April the only difference was the Nubian pallet I got in Dec and the other item in March I had received in Feb’s box so they are sending me a box full of other items I think 6 or 7 items she asked what I would like and sent it out and was super nice by far the best customer service on the phone

Nat

I got the same. The eyeliner I got was also the one from December box. So now I got 2 Nubian pallettes and 2 of the same eyeliners. I am so mad at Allure. I don’t understand if they are sending the lippies after you call and complain, why are they not sending them in the first place. UGH! I am on the 4 boxes for $10 each. But I don’t think that’s even worth it. I sign up to discover new things not get repeats.

Joy

Update-I’ve never had much luck with their customer service via email, but they are so nice and helpful by phone! They apologized for sending me a repeat item (the palette from my December box) and are sending the Anastasia lip product instead.

That is unfortunate. It doesn’t help that some people order multiple boxes every month. I think Allure is stretched pretty thin with these boxes with having Amazon selling them too. As a subscriber for nearly two years, I have finally decided to cancel.

My box arrived on the 26th and I got the Anastasia lippie and the Laura Geller eyeliner in lavender, so they must not have run out of these products. So happy I didn’t receive the Nubian palette and the two hair frizz samples like others have!

Joy

Yeah, they were in the printed booklet that came with the box, but definitely nowhere in the spoilers or the spoiler photo from MSA. If you look at Allure’s site now, it is a whole different April box advertised.

Laura

I can’t decide if I want to skip next month or not. I’d like to try a few of these items but I’ve received low end variants in my last 2 boxes which has really put me off. I didn’t even receive the ABH lipstick and I ordered directly from Allure. I don’t want to end up with frizz sheets lol

I’m not really sure how I’m feeling about this box now, and I have paid for 3. Hoping it will really be great!

I’d love the AmorePacific if the product size is larger than a quarter, LOL. Also, since Laneige is a budget-priced AP brand, I’d love to see the Waterbank Moisture Cream sent out in a box as a full sized product, not a teeny sample. I’ve never had a sub box which sent the full sized product.

Someone said the hair frizz sheets are for Amazon boxes, but I don’t think the hair sheet things are directed specifically only to those who sub through Amazon. That makes no sense, as the Amazon boxes have the same value ( sometimes greater depending on what the variation is) than the ones shipped directly to customers from Allure. Also, the boxes Amazon warehouse ships contain nail polish, aerosols, liquids, lip products, the whole thing is usually the exact same group of products except for the first box in a subscription. I think the first box in a subscription is also different when a new subscription is opened through Allure.com too.

The only variation I’ve had was the Anastasia lip gloss last month, and didn’t care whether I had 3 hair products or 1 and another light lip gloss from a brand I don’t love. I’ve gotten boxes from Allure direct shipped for many years and from Amazon for about 2 years.

I have cancelled. The April box was simply awful. The eyeshadows were not colors I would wear, if I even wore shadow. The ABH lippie was a horrible shade. The shade for the May lippie is just as bad. Google search the product, and then hit “images”. I have FOUR of that LUE stuff that I cannot give away, don’t need another. I am SO disappointed in what Allure has become. DONE!

I think I have to cancel, too. The only really great thing I’ve gotten from these boxes was the Sunday Riley products. I’ve gotten two of the same shade red lipsticks – two months back to back. Now, I’ll have two of basically the same shade nude lipsticks – two months back to back. Also, the ND eyeshadow I received is basically the same color as the Mally eye shadow stick. All of the makeup is the same color and the skin care is just a bunch of moisturizers.

Why is Allure including a product in the May box that’s no longer for sale? Note that in the product list above, there’s no link for the Model Co eyeshadow. That eyeshadow is no longer available on the Model Co website, nor any place else that I could find. Liz reviewed it back in February 2017, in the Look Fantastic Box. (Thought it was gorgeous). Did Model Co discontinue the eyeshadow after Allure planned the May box and got the product? Or is this a dump of excess, discontinued inventory? Hmmm. Sketchy.

Update- I just checked the ModelCo website today, and suddenly the Eyelite is back, but only in the St Bart’s shade, and labeled as a “new” product. Really? And
now it’s only $12, not the $19 it was when Liz reviewed it in 2017.

I’m really not thrilled with self tanners. not everyone wants to tan! and I’m SUPER annoyed with the insane amount of variant items lately. I love Allure because its essentially a fixed box with no surprises, no praying you get one item vs the other. I don’t mind one item being variant, but when half the box is variables I don’t see the point. It seems really lazy to me, especially if people are saying some of these items are recycled. I am excited about the eyeshadow though!

The products are ok, (I don’t tan; I’m pale and proud, but my girlfriend might use that stuff.), But ever since the switch to crappy vinyl bags, I’ve missed the nice two-piece boxes. Since January I’ve received exactly one bag that wasn’t split down the side and unusable. The boxes were sturdy and a great size for organizing my beauty products.

Two makeup products made in China with the only decent stuff as variations? Not what I’m interested in. For $15/month, I can buy makeup at the drugstore that’s not made in the PRC. Between that and Amazon subscribers not even getting the Anastasia lipstick last month, this isn’t even interesting anymore. It was fun for a few months, Allure!

Ugh. Turns out it wasn’t just Amazon subscribers 🙁 I sub through Allure and no lippie. And John Freida sub and some wretched hair spray subbed for one of the Briogios. Blah. So it wasn’t just Amazon people that got the no lip variation on this box, not sure it was much of a loss if the color was so bad, but still irritating. I also love the great planning to include a product (the tan sheets) that say store under 30c (86f) since it was sitting in my box at 95 degrees here in Arizona today. Send those things in cold weather sheesh!

It sounds like you got a box of odds and ends :/ I’m sorry. As for the lippie, I’m not sure what your skin tone is, but I honestly don’t see this color working on anyone. I’m pretty fair-skinned, so the color in my eyes and lips are pretty important… wearing these damn nude colors wash me out!!
