  1. After the plethora of nude/”concealer lip” colors that have been sent over the last few months, I’m actually happy to see some color. lol

  2. I love a good red-orange. Some of us are bored to death w/nude shades. I love Huda’s liquid lips. They don’t dry out my lips too bad, though I use the BITE agave lip mask under all my liquids so I don’t really have a problem w/any of them.

    While y’all are all complaining about getting a red lipcolor I’d like to complain about getting fake-bake tanning crap 2 months in a row. I don’t need that garbage. Was disappointed that they sent that crap twice in as many months.

    • I’ll send all of my red-orange lippies to you for your ‘fake-bake’ stuff! 😉 I love the St. Tropez line because I can’t tan otherwise and it works better than others and smells great too.

  3. I’ve never found a liquid lipstick that didn’t turn my lips to sandpaper, and I have tried many. This does not make me happy.

  4. I was wondering where my May box was ?! And went and checked my account and it said put on suspension per customers request 👀 I never , ever requested a hold and it said update account info :/ I was mad , I mean glad I missed Mays bag , but IDK where they got to put my bag on hold ! I’ll be mad if I have to pay more then $10.00 for that 4 bags for $10.00 thing ! I hope there customer service is good and can deal with this bc I’ll be mad they never even sent an email saying I paused anything ! I do want June’s bag though hopefully they can work it out and I don’t want to pay more then $10.00 🙁

    Ps I hope there’s better spoilers for July :/

  5. Hate it , one color I can’t wear this one . I’m so tired if this color going in everything

    • First of all I just can’t get into the matte lip items. I tried one from Too Faced that was a beautiful color and used a lip topper that was glossy and my lips still felt like the Sahara. Why?? Do they keep sending red/orange lip colors? I’m sure many of you can pull it off but I can’t lol! I don’t think the boxes are made for anyone over the age of 25, honestly I’m 41 with children and a husband, I can’t walk into work with most of the colors they send. In college yes but as a director of HR – no these colors don’t fly. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like plain nude colors either, but something with a pretty color that doesn’t make me look like a Drag Queen. My kids have said I look like a drag queen with some of the samples I get! Lol!

      • age doesn’t have much to do with it 🙂
        I’m 40 and rock my Ruby Woo and KVD Sante Sangre.

        I think it’s about what you are comfortable with. This coming color and the grapefruit multi-stick are the only colors that will have worked for me with Allure. The nudes look like trash on me lol

  6. I’m so excited to try a Huda liquid lip I just don’t know if the orange/red will look good on me or not. And I hope Huda is doing this box. Really don’t care for July’s well a couple of them but for it to be a June box I would expect like a body cream, face oil and maybe some different kind of spray for beach waves or something.

  7. I just found out I have pink cook undertones I never knew finally went and found out 🙂 so now I know what colors will flatter me , and I know this color will not 🙁 oh well I’ll pass it onto someone at work I’m sure will love it or sell it on eBay ! Can’t wait until further spoilers from allure hope there more enticing then this lippie . It’s so hit or miss with them :/

    • You’d be surprised! I have the same pink cool undertones and always assume I’d look like a clown with this lip color. But when I tried it on, it brightened up my entire face and actually looked very flattering!

      My complexion is on the clear side though (as opposed to soft/smoky).

  8. the april box was such a downer for me. I got 2 dupe items from past boxes that I already am not using. I skipped May. High hopes for this box!

  9. Reds look horrible on me, whether warm or cool toned. But lipsticks in beauty boxes are so tricky- there’s no way to please everyone.

    I went through a period of getting full-size MAC lipsticks in my boxes, which should’ve been exciting, but every one was a shade of red, so those were a total bust for me.

    After a run of nude lipsticks in boxes though, I’m not surprised to see this color. And hopefully those who wear reds will love it. But I agree that a more universal color sure would be nice occasionally!

    • Oh my goodness I would love to get a nude

      • Stick around with Allure, Nikki. You will get 20 of them.

        • Not true. When was the last nude??

          • I have gotten 3 nude lip colors in the last 4 months or so

          • March – Tarte Tarteist in OG
            April – Anastasia in Pure Hollywood
            May – Laritzy Lip gloss in Vibe

    • When I was younger, I wore bold lip color. After years of toning down the amount of makeup I wear. I tend to wear a more natural look. I do have a couple of shades if I feel like it. But otherwise, right now, I’m enjoying the shades of lip treatment Hanalie has now. Shear color. I knew I would have been able to pull off the dark blue based red we got at one point but I knew I would not wear it. There is no way I can pull off an orange-red.

    • I feel your pain! I have a Cupid bow lip that is somewhat heart shaped with what naturally looks like my top lip has a tiny implant…..I look like a Simpson’s character with red or ANY dark or vivid lipstick. I stick to ‘polite lips’ with nudes and put my full makeup expressionism into my eyes….

      Yet all these boxes have these garish lipsticks even though I constantly say…..”rarely” to lipstick.

      “Everybody has a red” is the biggest lie since “a streak of super ashy light blonde won’t make you look like a skunk.’

    • Everyone can wear red, it’s just a matter of finding your tone!

      • I agree! I never liked red until I found Ruby Woo from MAC I love it!! This orange red will look horrible on me!!

    • Oooo how and where did you get to try out full sized MAC lipsticks in boxes?! Would love to know. I know allure sent a mini a while back.

      • Jamey, Sometime last year, ALLURE sent out a full sized MAC lippie to all subscribers. It was either in Ruby Woo or Lustering, both really pretty colors.

  10. So this particular shade is an allure exclusive, is that correct?

  11. Nicole, Have you tried mixing shades? I don’t do orange reds well either but I find if it is a lippie I use as a topper over a matte. Or a matte, I will top with a different lippie. I got tired of giving away brands I wanted to try and found the formula nice but color UGH! It can be fun to customize a beautiful color from your own stash! I have this amazing 1930’s brownish red color that I made up and girl!!! I swear men hold doors open due to this shade. Even grouchy ones…

    • Tanya, you should patent this color that makes even a grumpy man polite. Lol! I have played with layering colors a bit. My problem with the color is that I’m cool toned. I look good in blue based reds, burgandy, mauves and purples or nude pinks. Even if I layer shades, it wouldn’t change that the color is warm toned. I think I’m just going to have to trade this one. Thanks for the suggestion though, I’m keeping it in mind for the others (ABH/Laritzy) we recieved recently.

  12. Great color! especially it is exclusive for Allure! I am excited for this box!

  13. I’m so bummed. That Huda lippie is one of very few colors I just can’t pull off. I have been dying to try a Huda lippie too.😭 I realise they can’t keep everyone happy all the time, but I feel like we always get shades that are just not going to work for half of us. In the year and a half that I have been recieving sub boxes, I have not recieved one universally flattering lip color. I always get those orangy terracotta nudes, nudes light enough to be concealer, or red. All shades I can’t pull off. It’s like they are not aware of the hundreds of shades that exist in between. It’s not just Allure, so I’m not complaining about them specifically…I don’t know, I’m just bummed. Finally get a Huda lippie and it’s in a shade I would never wear. Sigh, I guess I’m just going to have to go buy one.

    • I think the shades we get are the ones that nobody wants. The ones that everyone wants the supplier can sell without including it in the box

      • I think that happens w/a lot of sub boxes

        • Agreed. I also don’t think all subs actually pay for the products on their boxes. Maybe some, but not all. They work with companies to get them at pennies on the dollar or free as it promotes the brand and product.

    • Try using it with a lip liner, to shift the color. That’s what I’m going to do! Or as a cream blush, if you blend it with a little moisturizer..?

      • Or use one of those pale lippies from Anastasia and the one from May to lighten the RED. Pales and red are my no shades. Maybe my daughter can pull this one off with her blonde hair and blue eyes.

    • Totally agree! You would think they’d(all sub boxes) send shades that are universal, not ones that only 40 or 50 percent of people can pull off. I have maybe received 1 or 2 ever out of all my subs that would work for most people.

    • Nicole, Have you tried mixing shades? I don’t do orange reds well either but I find if it is a lippie I use as a topper over a matte.. I got tired of giving away brands I wanted to try and found the formual nice but color UGH! It can be fun to customize a color from your stash!

      • Mixing just gets goopy and too layered sometimes. Not everyone likes doing that or can pull it off either. I only got like 2 kiowa items I can pull off and use out of almost 10 YEARS of sub boxes. Lol. Sadly lip products are my favorite too. Lol.

        That 1930s brown you said you mixed sounds delightful!!

    • Preach it! Whatever happened to pinks and rosey tones? All the colors I receive are either so light I look half dead, or so bright they’re garish. The Sephora birthday gift a few years ago was the Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang shade from MJ. Now that was a hit for me!

  14. I was hoping that ALLURE would have worked with HUDA for last years December box (instead, we got Nikkie Tutorials). Now I love NIkkie and really liked her box, BUT I have been biding my time until they coupled with Huda…it was just a matter of time😊.

    So now that we have Huda leading our box curation, I am officially excited///very excited. Yes, yes aI know many will not be happy with an orange red lippie, but I happen to think that color works beautifully with a tanned face. As a matter of fact, I usually never use that color but have begun using it since I have a subtly [self] tanned body…it is a great compliment!

    So hear hear to ALLURE for JULY’s box…now I am psyched!🎈🎆✨🎁🎈

    • I’ve never tried Huda or a red orange toned lip so I’m excited to be introduced to both! I definitely need something new for summer since I’m swimming in berry and nude shade lipsticks right now.

      • Better have super white teeth to pull off red-orange

        • Right!!

    • Good thing I’m pale as a ghost.. and that red orange will make me look like a clown 🙂

    • Um, huda didn’t help curate the box. It says that huda sent a few shades of the lip to allure office and basically people sampled it and chose and liked this color best. So shes not curating the box sadly.

      • Oooooh, I think I’m wrong, and hide DID curate it!!! Interesting!! Hope this is a good one!!!

      • Jamey: At the top of the page (before the photo of the lippie) this is what it says: “We have the first spoiler for the July Allure Beauty Box thanks to Allure magazine! And this box will be curated by Huda Kattan!”

        So it appears HUDA is curating the box and for that I’m delighted!

  15. I’ve nvr purchased a Huda lippie, but always wanted to try it. Just nvr got lucky enough to receive one thru ipsy-lol. Can’t wait to see the rest of the spoilers. Would make no sense if Miss. Kattan had other brands and no other Huda products were not included. It should be a Huda brand self promoting box!

  16. I see a lot of people complaining about the colour and I can’t feel sympathy, I have suffered the last 2 boxes with very pale nudes (laritzy & anastasia). Those colours made me look like I had a serious case of Anemia what with me being a medium warm skin shade, finally a colour I can wear without looking sickly.

    • I’m really fair but couldn’t wear those shades either! I looked like a corpse.

    • I didn’t like those either, so maybe spare a little sympathy for those of us who look bad in both shades?

      I do have some Huda Reds, so I’m not opposed to them – but they are pink/dark reds.

      • Yes! I’m in the both shades suck for me category. Whomp-whomp.

  17. Okay, I’m here for this! 💋💄

  18. I’ll be passing this one on. I can’t wear orange reds and I do t care for matte lipsticks. I wish they would give us color options.

  19. I hate nude matte lipsticks too! They make me look “dead & scary”. I am a natural redhead (though with age my hair got darker & grayer so now I’m dyed “brunette”. Lol) and ALL blue-red lipsticks turn PINK (from Pepto-Bismol to bright fuchsia) so I used the same “gold shimmer brick red” shade of Lancôme lipstick for 20+ years until they discontinued their classic “Cherrywood Luxe” in 2015. I’ve been trying to find a replacement ever since without result. Can anyone recommend me a satin red lipstick without any blue?

    I am actually going to try this orange-red Huda & if it looks good on me I’ll swap for a bunch of them. Lol

    • Jane: There are a few shades of orangey-brick reds that I have been dying to try. Maybe you should check them out?
      1). Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment – “Don’t Stop” (powerful & bright color)
      2). Glossier Lipstick (Generation G, I think) – “Zip” (this one is a bit sheer)
      3). NYX Lipstick – “Pure Red” (very YUM)
      4). MAC Matte Lipstick – “Lady Danger” (another bright)
      Good luck in your pursuit!

  20. Orange-red? Heck yes!!! First good spoiler in months! Perfect for bright summer days.

    • Yes, totally agree!

  21. Orange-red? Just no. I’m sure I will never wear it. Not sure I know anyone who would to gift it to. Fingers crossed for the next spoilers.

  22. Orange-red, no, no, no!!! WHYYYYYY?!!!!! This definitely is NOT a universal color for sure. Nudes and reds Always…

    • I usually never wear dark or red shades, but with a summer tan, this color works really well. Heck, I’ve used some of these self tanners going round and the St Tropez is t=really good! I didn’t turn orange in the least, just a nice healthy tan. Looks great and orange red lippies look stunning with the tan.

    • Right? Warm reds are not going to work for anyone who is cool toned, period. Why send out a color that isn’t going to work out for half of your subs? Like, send me shades that are universally flattering and I’ll go buy my reds and lighter colored nudes myself so I can pick the right one!

      • NICOLE: I have had to endure lippies upon lippies that were cool toned or not my color. (Last year was dreadful for me color wise). You need to remember that what might suit you, might not suit another…and visa versa. In Subscription boxes we get things that might not compliment our coloring, but that is all part of the gamble.

  23. I’m excited for this! I really like her lipstick formula, very comfortable. I can’t wait to see what else is in the box, hopefully something good for my birthday!

  24. I don’t wear lipstick anymore. So this will be given away depending on the actual shade of it or go up for swap.

    • The shade is Alluring, an orange-red

      • I saw that and tried to find it online. I doubt it will look good on me. If my niece wants it, she can have it. If not, up for swap it goes.

        • How does one swap items?

          • Mysubscriptionaddiction has a swap page. You have to ask MSA to join.

      • I see what you did there….😉

  25. I don’t wear lipsticks so this will be swapped but I’m interested in what the rest of the box looks like 👀

  26. When is this matte lipstick trend going to fall of a bridge and go splat???? I am so tired of matte lippies!! Call me old or just plain old fashioned, but I love a great creamy 💄…..

    • Agreed. Personally I prefer a satin finish (smooth with a hint of shimmer).

      Sure, you can top it with a gloss or balm, but it’s easier to not.

      • Satin 💄is awesome too!

    • I’m almost personally offended whenever I see a gloss, and wish that mattes had been more popular when I was growing up. I’m never going to outgrow or become tired of them.

      That said, I don’t think I use matte lippies the cakey way I see other people use them, more as a sheered out stain – either dabbing a few dots and blending out or applying from the wand and wiping off my lips on a tissue. Glosses, creams, and shimmers all look absolutely, completely, and totally horrid on me, though.

    • I agree so much. I might be old fashioned too but everything is backwards right now. People want shiny cheeks and matte lips. It makes no sense. Matte lips look dry and shiny cheeks look greasy! I don’t want dry lips or greasy skin!

      • Lol… when I was a little girl, I remember my Grandma powdering her nose… shine was considered oily and a no-no. This glass skin thing is a hoot. I can live without being shiny. And matte lip products are always started with a balm and followed up with some gloss. Buxom Dolly is my go-to lip. Love that stuff.

      • Yes!! 😀

    • Totally agree! Can’t stand matte lipsticks. It’s like my lips are crying for moisture. 😂

  27. This box is hanging by a thread on the chopping block after the last 2 months of disappointment. This spoiler isn’t helping their cause any.

  28. It’s a no for me so far. But I am holding hope that other spoilers will be better

  29. I can’t wear any red lip with orange undertones ever since I read that orange will make your teeth look yellow. It was in some beauty magazine years ago, but it stuck in my mind. Hoping for something I like and Allure usually is a great box!

    • It will, which is why blue-reds are popular.

      However, there’s another study that shows that men pay more attention to an orange-red because it subliminally reminds them of fire trucks.

      • Tee hee! Thank you making me giggle today. 😊

    • Very true. Blue-toned reds will make my teeth look brighter, but orange-reds compliment my complexion like no other shade. I’ll take a little teeth-yellowing if it makes the rest of my face light up

  30. Finally after months of meh boxes a good spoiler. I just hope Amazon sends the lippie like they are suppose to. I look great in orange reds and liquid lipsticks are all I wear and I rock them. Right now my go to red is Ofra Ultimate Red which is described as bright coral red so I am sure this will look ok on me. I have received Huda lipsticks in my regular Ipsy and I like the formula.

  31. wait, is this a huda collaboration box? or is it just the lipstick

    • Seems like the founder curated the whole box. So excited!

    • Stacy, it’s being curated by HUDA, so I suspect that means a collab….and a great one a that!

  32. I’m super excited about this. Hudas formula is great and I only like orange based reds on my complexion. I’ve never received one in a box. They’re always sending blue reds so this is exciting for me.

  33. Oh orange red would not look good on me – oh well I could always give it to someone at work , I never look good in reds .

  34. Uhm, no. Hate matte liquid lips, and could never/would never wear an orange red color. Hope the rest of the box is better.

  35. Thank you for the spoiler. So far it’s a pass for me.

  36. Is it as flattering as that $120 “nude” lipstick they had everyone in the office try for an ad that was anything but?

  37. I have filled a shoebox with red lippies, why is that all boxes send red or concealer lips…

    • I think it’s because they are colors that will not work for everyone, therefore they sell less of them and we end up finding the overstock of these shades in our subscription boxes. There is never a nice flattering in between shade in these boxes, because they sell. There aren’t any left overs to be snagged up at a fraction of the price.

  38. Since when is orange-red anyone’s perfect lip color?

    Too bad – would love to try Huda

  39. Oh, look…another red liquid lip. 🙄

    • Yaass!… It seems like every month i get a different red from a sub box… I rarely wear reds. I like neutrals & nudes mostly… So over the red lips!!! Too much trouble and easy to see any tiny smear throughout the day…. Im so blah with this but i love huda products. Would b nice for the whole box to be a collab with huda beauty.

  40. I think that Huda Beauty has one of the best liquid lipstick formulas around. They are long-lasting and also less drying than any other formula I have tried. Plus they smell awesome.

  41. Would love to try the brand but not the color, ugh.

  42. I’m beyond ready for the matte lips to take a seat for awhile. Give me some hydration, some summer glow, a long wearing formula that doesn’t kill my lips, please!!

    • I’m with you! I’ve had severely chapped lips my entire life so I have never been able to pull off a matte lip.

    • Me too. Lips with a little shine like they were just licked are sexy. The dry lip trend is a favorite of makeup makers, not the real human psyche.

  43. I only wear matte liquid lips they are the only kind that stay put. Color pop are the cheapest and good quality. Haven’t tried Huda yet. I am excited

    • Huda is my favorite lippie now..never dries my lips out and the color stays amazing all day

  44. I’ll join the group of ladies who don’t like the drying feel of matte lip products and look garish in orange-undertone-anything, and wait patiently for the next spoilers. If the other spoilers are a good fit for me (no self-tanning anything, please, and I’m overloaded on black eyeliners and mascaras too), I’ll resub and give the lippie to my husband’s wonderful daughter, who has the complexion tone to pull it off.

  45. I don’t care for Huda, detest liquid lipsticks, especially matte, don’t look good in orange-y lip colors – a total miss. Bring on a sheer berry bullet lipstick!

    • A sheer berry would be so nice.

  46. Yay! Excited about this. I paused for May and so far quite happy with June and July.
    It says the box is curated by Huda Kattan as well – can’t wait to see what else is in there!

    • Yes!! I am psyched for that. Finally a worthwhile collab 🙌

  47. Orange on my pink undertones is not good. Mattes suck all the moisture from my lips and my wrinkles don’t need enhancing 😂. But just because it’s spoiled doesn’t mean I’m getting it.

    • Same. Same and same. And same! LOL.

  48. Oh I LOVE a good red lip, sick of the matte trend, but with a good balm over it, it works fine. 🙂 Bring on the color!

  49. I’m down for a nice red lippie. Huda… yes, please! Nice way to start off July’s spoilers.

  50. Yesss I’m not mad at that. I’ve been trying to find the perfect orangey red forever!
