  1. I’m all for sampling new masacaras…but this one is the worst I have ever tried. The whole brand is a fail for me personally. This wand does nothing for my already non-existent lashes.

    But I am happily waiting to see what else this box will offer in August to determine if I’ll sub that month.

    • Amy, I had the same exact experience with it. I’m not fond of the way you have to use the mascara wand to get them pushed up. Perhaps I’m just not coordinated enough to do it the right way. I get too much product on the upper part of my lid. 🙂

  2. I seriously can’t remember the last time I bought a black mascara in an actual store as it’s such a frequent flyer in my two subscription boxes(this and PLAY). I also prefer the roller lash one but this is decent. While not an exciting spoiler… it’s probably a good generic used by most item. Let’s hope for a few more exciting items next?

  3. i love all my beauty boxes I collect things that i wont use and make mother’s day bags for my sisters and sisters in law there is usually something for everyone’s taste and they get quality products and I don’t have to spend additional money it’s a win win for me

    • That’s a really good idea that I will now start doing myself. I have 6 sisters so this will be very helpful lol

  4. Possibly NOT $15 anymore! Just received my renewal notice for 9/19, They quoted my renewal will be $21.99; Loved it at $15, will not renew at $21.99 There are months it is fantastic follows by 2 or 3 meh months–would not want to pay that much for the erratic quality.

    • Possibly NOT $15 anymore! Just received my renewal notice for 9/19, They quoted my renewal will be $21.99; Loved it at $15, will not renew at $21.99 There are months it is fantastic follows by 2 or 3 meh months–would not want to pay that much for the erratic quality.
      My mistake that was for continuing the magazine. Sorry that was very upsetting when I thought it was the box/

      • 21.99 for a year or two of magazine? That is definitely a lot more than my last renewal, I think….

  5. I have at least 30 mascaras. Five of these as of today. I am okay with this as item #6, but not as #1. I am all about Lancome Definicils…. just hooked for years, so anything else is meh. This will go in the mascara stash. Depending on the other spoilers, I may just cancel. I subscribe through Allure, so it is fairly easy to turn it off and on.

    • its just a bunch of skin care stuff

  6. I was on the Allure site the other day, and there was an article where the editor said this was the one she always goes back to, so that may be why it’s in.

  7. I just received a random Allure box. It contained: AmorePacific Youth Revolution Radiance Creme &Masque, Lue Erase Powder, Laneife Water Bank, Laritzy Lip Gloss and St Tropez Self Tan Purity plus mitt…….. I signed up last month bc of the free Full Size Oribe product. Do y’all think this random box is bc they have ran out of the Oribe? I’m definitely gonna contact Allure Customer Service But I thought I might could get a quicker response from MSA readers. 😂🤗😉

    • Also. An Eyelites eye shadow

    • I believe this is May’s box.

      • Thanks so much Kristin! I checked MSA and you’re 💯 right-it is May’s box! I just “assumed “ I wouldn’t receive the May box since my first box I received after signing up was June! Thanks again for letting me know!😉

      • Exact same thing happened to me! Cray!

    • It’s the May box and I received it the other day also and it had the Mischka perfume for the welcome gift. The next day I received the June box with the Sunday Riley for the welcome gift. Odd thing is that I’ve been subscribing since January and received June box last week and May last month.

      • Thanks Shawna! That’s definitely crazy though that you received 2 new member gifts like that! I thought I’d just receive my Oribe product separately since it wasn’t in with my June box. Which again, I thought was my first box until this one showed up today. But I still haven’t received my welcome gift. Beginning to wonder if I actually will🤷‍♀️

    • I think that most definitely the reason because my friend got a random box too instead of the oribe

  8. Yay. Another mascara sample. <>

    I cannot wait for this subscription to be OVER! When I signed up, the bags I had seen previously reviewed were awesome. Great products, no repeats (product type if not brand), great brands, etc.
    Now they’ve devolved into just another box offering the same shtuff every other box offers. Personally, I’m SICK of getting mascaras. I have a drawer full of unused mascaras.

    • Why don’t you skip or cancel then? If you subbed to multiple beauty boxes mascara is just a given, perhaps you should cut back or get on the swap boards ;). Luckily I have no problem with friends happy to get my surplus.

    • Why not do something with those unused mascaras? I have made bags for the women in need in my community. I put in all sorts of things I think would be helpful. My mini mascaras, deodorants I get for free from CVS, the makeup bags that I get in excess, shampoo and conditioner samples, brand new lipsticks I won’t use. Brow products that are too light for me. I still get lots of nice samples and full sizes that make this box great IMO. Use the surplus to do something good in your community! 🙂

      • What an awesome idea! Thank you for what you do! 😁

  9. I can’t remember if it was on this post (I scrolled through the comments but couldn’t find it), but I recall someone mentioning that they really like Tarte’s Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara, and I wanted to mention that for today only (until midnight CDT) Beauty Brands is offering their Vivid Color 8-piece Discovery box (currently selling for $15) for free with the purchase of a Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara (currently on sale for $12; regularly $23). No code is needed; the discovery box will automatically add to your cart along with a sample bag (which, from experience, isn’t too shabby as it usually includes around 4 deluxe samples, not packets). I tested it, and it’s currently working. Since it’s below their free shipping threshold, $5.95 in shipping will be added.

    The discovery box includes samples of:
    – Amika Vault Color-Lock Leave-In Conditioner
    -Sexy Hair Vibrant Sexy Hair Color Lock Hairspray
    -Redken Color Extend Vinegar Rinse
    -Wella Dry Me Dry Shampoo
    -Chi Tea Tree Oil Serum
    -Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask
    – Matrix Total Results Keep Me Vivid Shampoo
    – Matrix Total Results Keep Me Vivid Conditioner

    • Thanks Luna 🙂 you always find great deals ! And yes I saw that post too I think it was on this page too , I saw it somewhere hopefully whoever wrote that will find this 😁👍

      • I hope they see it in time too! 🙂

    • update- it does not appear to be working for me

    • Luna, how incredibly ki9nd of you to do all of that work for one of our fellow readers. Bravo…well done!

  10. Who, on this planet, has not tried this mascara? I’m pretty sure my rough-n-tumble Grandpa Joe even tried this mascara, and he’s been dead for 20 years. C’mon, Allure. Do better. Your competition sure is.

    • I’ve never tried it. I’ve subbed to beauty boxes for years and have never actually tried it. I didn’t even know it was that common and I’ve never received it.

    • I have gotten about twenty deluxe samples of this as gifts with purchase through Ulta in the beauty bags they give out lol

    • I have never tried it. Five currently reside in my unused mascara drawer with 25 friends of different brands. This is 4 months of accumulation. I will be purging and donating in July.

      • @Dawn- “25 friends of different brands”- LOL! I have one of those drawers too and I like your description of it. 🙂

  11. Zzz…. With all the new mascaras that have launched, I’m surprised that this was selected. Please allure me with something new and groundbreaking for the rest of the box.

    • It wasn’t selected. Allure sends out whatever their advertisers give them. They just write lots of flowery prose in the booklet on “why we selected this item” (“It’s a classic for a reason! Seriously!”)

  12. Roller Lash is better. Just saying. I like Benefit mascaras, but I already have 3 of these exact samples. And the Il Makiage full size from May IpsyGBP. And the full size Pixi by Petra from June IpsyGBP. And a full size Roller Lash I bought because it is my favorite mascara ever.
    Allure won’t be “al-luring” me into a sub with this blase spoiler.

  13. Wow I have skipped allure for months now, I don’t think I’ve paid for a box since the beginning of the year. I don’t want July either.

  14. Seriously?! That’s the best you got Allure? At this rate I won’t be re-subscribing anytime soon! I definitely don’t have any FOMO! More like NOMO!

    • NOMO! 😂😂😂 My sentiments exactly. I used to love Allure, it kinda makes me sad. I think I’m going to pick up Sephora Play instead. I know their samples can be small, but they feature a lot of high end products I’d like to try. That’s what I used to love about Allure. I could almost always discover products I would actually want to purchase. Now I can’t even hardly find products I want to use.

      • Same! I’ve been an Allure subsciber for years and just cancelled. I received my first Ipsy this month and love it and I am also going to pick up Play.

      • sigh….I sadly unsubscribed today. I have had my account on pause for two months. I was REALLY hoping the July box was going to WOW me, but it just wasn’t for me. My sails were deflated when I saw the HUGE false lashes and the primer (that I hate the smell of). When I peeked into August, I see a MINI mascara as their teaser item (??). I think since I started IGP I expect more for my money.

        Customer service was quite nice and accommodating. FYI, they offered me the next four boxes at $12 each. I passed.

        I still like Allure…I will re-sub if the curation changes. Right now, I’m gonna take some time to use ALL THE MANY MANY MANY PRODUCTS I’ve collected. 😉

      • Same. I actually loved the June box, but skipped July and it looks like August as well at this rate. I even like this mascara but boring….

      • I loved the June box, too. I have paused my sub. They asked if I wanted to pause just tor July or until I call them. With the August spoiler, I chose to call them. “If” the perfume was a mini instead of a freebie sample size, I think I would have stayed. But… I didn’t want the lip or eyelashes, and I really have enough primer samples and masks. If we had recently gotten 2 brow products recently, I would have been excited😂

  15. Did I just see that right? I’m a little perplexed about this being the first spoiler for August? They usually put the best product out first to hook everyone, and this isn’t doing it for me.

  16. I wouldn’t be mad to see this as a filler item, but as the item they’re leading with for August…I’m puzzled. You feeling okay, Allure?

  17. I know everyone’s gonna be pissed about this spoiler (it’s boring and a pretty common box item). With that said I’m probably one of the few that’s totally ok with it. I like this mascara a lot and I throw my mascaras out pretty frequently (It’s good to throw out mascara after a couple months, think about all that bacteria close to your eyes!). So I always enjoy a quality mascara in my sub boxes.

    • I’m with you. I really like this mascara, so I’m happy with it. Also, since I have so many in my stash, I go through mine monthly. Mascaras are the only products where I feel a bit wasteful with since I throw them out when I know they still have some life to them, but since I wear makeup virtually everyday, I figure getting ~30 uses out of them is still giving them a good run. 🙂

    • I agree….

    • I personally like the deluxe ones best. The bigger ones seem to dry out quickly and I hate paying $12 for travel size. This is kind of one of the reasons I love deluxe sample sizes! Obviously I have preferences for certain mascara’s but I like this one. It’s probably #4 in my list of fav’s. I think May’s box was the crappiest but I also got the perfume that month so 🙂 That made up for it. Junes box was so awesome to me though IMO. July will be awesome. I’m ok with it so far. Love me some Allure! I’m sure this is a month where they are saving the best stuff for later like the 28th or so of this month to get people in ASAP

  18. Skipping July and August , wish allure was the way it used to be :/
    For $15.00 a month they need to step up their game to compete with other subs .
    I expected so much more out of allure – being a big mogul of beauty pop culture 🤔

  19. Yippee.

    Have a sample size in Black already, also have a full size in Brown, ANNND the primer.
    (Which doubles as a casual look mascara).

    Dog days of summer, I guess.

  20. ALLURE is leading our August Spoilers with ‘THIS’?
    What on earth are they thinking? Sure some may really like this brand, but this is merely a small sample of an overexposed mascara (IMHO).

    Allure, surely you need a shot i the arm…please get new guidance in your curations!

  21. Booooooring.

  22. Not exciting.

  23. Love Buxom actually, not sure if i have tried this one…but i NEED waterproof. Any non waterproof is all over my face an hour or two later.

    • Totally agree. My eyes water like crazy. I don’t wear anything but waterproof.

  24. I have almost as many of these as I have Eyeko black eyeliners.

    • LOL!!!

  25. I only own one mascara right now as I’m pretty good about pitching them 3 months after they are opened. So I’m thrilled to have another mascara. This one should last me 3 months as I don’t wear mascara every day. Great spoiler for me.
    I’m finding with this one subscription, I no longer need to buy most skin care products, eye make up or lip make up products. Totally worth it for me.

    • …..WHAT?!

      • Lol 🤣 @ Morgan

      • What are you what-ing about?

      • Right? Like I read the words and I know what they mean, but they don’t make sense in my brain, lol.

      • I was thinking that I must be running low on mascara but then I counted…. 10 unused😂

      • Haha. Your responses to my comment cracked me up. I only subscribe to FabFitFun and Allure and don’t wear make up often as I’m housebound most days due to health. I just started to get back into makeup within the last year. I don’t know if I’ve ever finished any makeup product and tend to toss them when they expire.

    • Same. I I wear mascara maybe once or twice a week. They usually last a few months and then I decide to throw them away because they dry up. Im always excited to get any kind of mascara. So good box for me already

  26. This hardy works

  27. I don’t wear black mascara. I’m hoping for skincare

  28. I cancelled after May, no regrets, even though I’d been getting the Allure box for years. Their downhill slide continues, IMO.

    • I put a permanent hold on mine after May’s box. I just have to call them to release the hold when I’m ready. I’ve also been a member for years (I’ve actually been a regular member since the creation of the box when they partnered up with beauty bar for the ”Sample Society” boxes. So yeah….yeeeears haha.
      And through the years they have put out many sub-par boxes but then would turn around and make up for it with an awesome box a month or two later. That doesn’t happen anymore. It’s meh box followed by an ok box followed by a ‘who the hell put this together’ box.
      They usually have decent September boxes, so here’s hoping!

  29. While this is an excellent back up mascara, and appears to be a mini, great for touch ups and overnight bags, I would have been more impressed with the new Damn, Girl! By Too Faced.

    • I would have like to see this too. At this rate I’d rather sub to the Macy’s box. Waiting for more spoilers to see if I want to resub to Allure

  30. I know this mascara is pretty popular and has its following, but I dislike this mascara with a handful of passion. The wand is so spiky. I wouldn’t want this kind of torture even if it were Christian Grey doing it.

    • “handful of passion” …. I like that… Not about the wand but love the description..

    • LOL, not my type.

      Now, Chris Hemsworth on the other hand….

      • Gerard Butler…. Now if I could get him to come do my makeup for me, he could use all the eyeko and ManaKadar he could find and i wouldn’t even be mad…

      • Harrison Ford for me please 🙂
        Loving “he could use all the eyeko and ManaKadar he could find and i wouldn’t even be mad” – so awesome Heather K!

  31. Yawn.

  32. This was my favorite mascara (bought full size/price multiple times) until I got started on the Tarte Lash Paint.

  33. Tired of black mascara already. Someone do something revolutionary and give us a different color!

    • Medusa’s had a bright blue one a few months ago, while it wasn’t a good shade for me personally, it was fun to see something so different in a box.

      • I like purple mascaras, myself.

  34. Well I do like their curling mascara, haven’t tried this particular one. Not an exciting spoiler, but not one that makes me want to cancel either.

  35. I must of been subscribing for way too long. Not impressed Allure, not impressed. Skipped June, July and now August is not looking great. I am waiting for more

    • Same here. Skipped June, skipping July, maybe save my money in August too! Yay!

  36. Me. I must be out here alone. Not this brand. Lol

    • I haven’t got this one either. Your not alone lol.

  37. Who doesn’t have multiple of this by now?

    • Or multiple multiples…LOL

    • Got one too!
