  1. Definitely yes. I have been keeping an eye on this box since summer and am interested.

    I already get Oceanista and am expecting my 3rd box soon. It is fabulous and also needs to be reviewed. I also get California Found and Beachly/Coastal Co. Beach themed boxes are so fun and induce such relaxing stay-cation vibes!

    • Sorry! This posted to the wrong review!

  2. Omgosh! That Sunday Riley Ice cream is brand spanking new in Sephora and I’m dying to try it! Awesome deal! I’ll definitely be resubscribing! 😱🙌😍

    • That’s the only item that looks good. I wish I knew the size. I am pausing/canceling again. Usually there is only one thing in the box that I won’t use. October only has one item that I like. Bummer.

  3. I love the Allure box & have never gotten duplicates. I’ve subscribed to BoxyCharm, Ipsy, Birchbox, & BeautyFix for almost two years. The one box I consistently look forward to & am not disappointed with is Allure. I just got my Boxy Luxe yesterday & there is literally ONE item I plan to keep in it. Allure is only slightly more than Ipsy & Birchbox, but the product quality & sizes are great. If I had to keep only one sub box of all those – it would be Allure for sure – great skin care & makeup.

  4. Wait. Again with the Eyelite shadow? I already received that bronzy shade w\in the past few months.

  5. Allure has actually been repeating for months!! If You watch the Allure stories on Insta, they show the SAME products every month, but say if You previously got it, you won’t again. But new subs will get the same. Probably so many people cancelling, like I am about to. I should have months ago, at least to get it these last crappy boxes for $10……Going with BoxyCharm for 5$ more🐞

  6. Yikes!! I just got my (September) box and it’s awful and spoilers for October look bad as well. The old beauty curator left a year and a half/two years ago and ever since then, they quality and products have went downhill.

    They keep sending the same items over and over and not new items…things that have been around for a long time (and 99 percent) arent the iconic amazing items. They are just junk. I just dont get what’s going on at allure, especially when other subs are working on raising their quality and options, Allure is just stagnant and just dont seem to care. The sad thing about that is they are the ones in the “industry ” and have been in the game way longer then anyone else and they should have knowledge of new items and even old amazing items people use and love, or they forgot about and allure reintroduced them.

    And they dont seem to listen to what people are saying or wanting from the sub. Its mind boggling how amazing this box was consistantly for many years, and now, it’s just a bunch of junk. I really wish allure would wake up and listen to us. I grew up in the 90s buying allure magazine every month and wouldn’t miss a month for nothing, so it’s sad to see something that’s supposed to be so connected and should really blow this out of the water and did for a while, just kinda sink slowly!!

    I hope someone gets them to listen, or at the very least read here to see thoughts and opinions of people…

    Happy thoughts

    • I agree!! I can’t even give or sell what I don’t want away! It was the best box, I cancelled all others. Now I’m cancelling Allure and going with BoxyCharm. VERY WELL SAID!! 🐞

      • I’m glad I’m not the only one, but its sad to see it go downhill like it did. Can someone contact them and send them this forum and show them how the past few months so many people are unhappy and why?!

      • 1-800-274-1603 I was nice about it when I called to cancel. They asked why. I told them that their higher up people need to see this. They know…

    • I agree! With the way things are going in life right now, I’m going to have to redo the budget and start making cuts. Target has made that pretty easy. Allure has been so inconsistent & at this point, I can’t even swap or give away 1/2 the stuff I have from the last few Allure boxes that I have gotten. Ipsy raised their price to $12 but at least with them, I get a good enough mix that if I won’t use it, my girls will. Ipsy, $12.00 + perks verses Allure, $16.48 & no perks. I’m pretty sure who will make the budget and who won’t. Considering Allure also seems to play favorites and sends some subscribers extras, including jewelry, and they’ve never sent me anything extra, I see no reason to stay a loyal subscriber. I think I will simply call if they have a good box that I will actually use.

  7. Hii, i live in austria, if the shippment is possible there ?

    • Great question, Guliko! I’m afraid they do not ship to international addresses at this time according to their FAQ.

  8. Allure. We must have words. Sending a duplicate item within the same year, let alone FOUR months is superduper unacceptable. This jazz is uncool. Different (possible)shade, doesn’t matter. Nothing innovative about a repeat….

    • This is an easy pass. Eyelites, AGAIN! I am just going to bite on the Ipsy annual.

  9. I have been wanting to buy that peel for the longest time but never did so I’m really happy that I get to try it in the Box

  10. I’m interested to know what size the SR Ice and SDJ Bum Bum are.

    • Same here.

    • I’m guessing the bum bum will be the little 20ml jar. Not sure about the SR ice but maybe a .5 oz jar? Crossing fingers for full sized since they’ve done full sized SR in the past though.

    • The bum bum is the smallest jar that’s sold for $10 I’m thinking. It’s the only size that will fit in Allures boxes, and the SR looks like it will be the usual 0.17 oz deluxe sample to me. It really doesn’t look like a half ounce jar to me in the photo. But I guess we will see.

  11. I skipped September. At this point, I’ve become an every other month subscriber. I was going to get the October box, but now, I’m on the fence about it. I am looking at it from several directions and I just don’t know if this box will truly be worth it for me. I do think it’s a solid box at this point, but I simply don’t have the want or need for a liquid eyeshadow and neither does anybody else I know. I would give my niece the bum bum cream and I would use the skincare. Since I don’t know the size of the Sunday Riley, I don’t know that I want to spend $16.48 on a tiny sample and 3 peel pads. I guess I will wait for the next spoiler and then decide.

  12. has anyone tried the ice, sunday riley?….how is it to dry skin?

    • It’s brand new, I’m pretty sure this box will be the first chance for anyone to try it

    • It’s new. It’s already available on sephora right now. It says it’s a “pro-ceramide moisturizer that strengthens the natural moisture barrier against environmental stressors for plump looking baby soft skin”. It’s intended for all skin types.

  13. I love the facial products, but the eye and lip colors have been not my style. I usually just give the eye shadows away and I got two different bright red colors for the lips in my past two boxes. It’s nice because I would never buy that shade for myself, but I would prefer a nice neutral gloss. No more matte please.

    • I’ve become obsessed with the clear lip gloss from Glossier, its bomb! I’d give it a try 🤷‍♀️😘 My handle name on YT is “Sincerely, Kristen” I’m about to give the lip gloss a review and demo over different lip tints, shades and sticks! 🙌

  14. I own beige shadows. So sticky and patchy

  15. Yay, another either/or.

    Granite would be good for Halloween.

  16. I like ModelCo but I just got the Laritzy liquid shadow last month and don’t need another of basically the same thing.

  17. Only interested on bum bum but i know it will be a mini size. The other items are horrible

    • The SR item is brand new, how do you know it will be horrible??

    • Judith, Sunday Riley and M-16 are horrible? YIKES, how can you claim that, they are some incredible products, albeit skincare. Perhaps you are not a skincare fan?

      • I agree great skincare right there !

      • I’m not the OP but I’ve found that there are NO Sunday Riley products which do anything for my skin. The oils make me glow bright red for some reason, maybe a preservative, and the creams and lotions contain too strong a chemical solution for my sensitive skin. I have full sized products that have never been opened- I can’t use them.

        I LOVE good skincare that’s gentle for my skin type, which is mature and sensitive. Sunday Riley is apparently curated for a younger demographic than my old bones.;)

  18. I was only going to re-subscribe for the bum bum cream, but since Sol de Janeiro put out the BIGGIE BIGGIE BUM BUM cream, I just bought that instead. That will last me forever! 🙂

    • I bought the biggie bum bum and I am disappointed because the scent is so faint! They changed the formulation for the big tub IMO

      • Yikes, good to know. I’ve been saving my reward points and was eyeing that. I have enough for $40. I’ll probably get one of the sets instead.

        FYI I recommend signing up for their reward program on their website. I signed up when they first launched it, helps save a bit of money.

  19. I love liquid eyeshadows just not rose gold ones so hope Amazon sends granite. So far I want to try everything except peel.

  20. Still interested in this box for the first 3 items revealed. I wish there was no Modelco, but I guess I can give it away or throw it away if nobody wants it. Already have St. Barts from May box. It’s not good quality

  21. Ugh. Enough with the cream eyeshadows, most of them suck. Unless they are Stila, I don’t want them.

  22. I don’t about about anyone else but I love everything so far for October!!!!!!
    For September, I love Nars but I really dont want a lip crayon. I’d rather have the powder.

    • I only use lip balms so guaranteed to get the lippie.

    • We’re twins! I like October, but I don’t want the Nars lip crayon. I’ve never tried Nars and I would like too, but that color wouldn’t compliment my skin. I haven’t gotten an Allure box in over a year, but September and October make me want to come back.

      • Same here!

  23. While I enjoy getting my Allure box, I was surprised to see that it had gone up to $15. I am assuming they are just raising the price because other subs are doing so, but am going to put my money towards upgrading my Ipsy rather than continuing with Allure.

    • I’ve had this box since January and it has been $15 the whole time. Was it not always that much?

    • Allure’s been $15 for at least three years now.

      • I second that Allure has been $15 for a very long time, and they are one of the few (imo) that have actually NOT had any price increases for years. I’m pretty sure it was $15 all the way back to 2015.

        Now, they have allowed certain members to have a $10 price for maybe four boxes when they went to cancel, and I have read of at least one person being continually charged the $10 price, but this is an anomaly. The majority have been paying $15 and tax for this box.

      • No I got the 4 month special for $10.00 to stay twice now , so once it’s over in November I’m done that’s what I meant I pay $10.00 for 4

    • Allure raised their price to $15 when Boxy raised price to $21 and Play raised price to $10. Meaning it has always been that price. First box is $10 then it is $15 after that.

      • When was Play ever less than $10 that it had to be “raised” to $10?

      • It was a joke meaning Allure didn’t raise price Play didn’t raise price Boxy didn’t raise price .

      • 😂🤣😂

      • 😂😂😂😶😶

    • Allure has always been $15. It’s possible you signed up with a promo, or sometimes when you cancel they will offer a few months at $10 if you stay.

      IPSY is the one that is upping price ($10 to $12) this October.

  24. I keep thinking that maybe I’ll sign up for some beauty boxes again and then I see Sunday Riley and I”m like “no, that stuff totally burns my face” and I go on about my day, temptation avoided.

    • What is in it that burns our face?!! I want to love it too but the water cream even burnt my face.

      • I don’t know. Right now I am using a glycolic acid cleanser and a retinol product from Peter Thomas Roth, and an alcohol toner from Clinique, and two different physical exfoliants (one from Dermalogica in the morning and one from Derma E in the evening), and Epionce Lytic Tx+, and all of that together doesn’t burn my face the way Sunday Riley products do.

    • Doesn’t burn me – I just can’t stand the turmeric smell, and the other SR products seem “meh” and other brands charge far less for the same thing. Overhyped, IMO.

  25. I love the three skin care products; anything Model Co, I can live without.

  26. Well this is my last box anyway $10.00 will be over and I will not pay $15 for this no way

    • Huh? This box has been $15 as long as I can remember. Only the first month is $10.

      • When you’re a new subscriber they offer the $10 for the first month but they usually keep charging $10 for the next couple of months. They also sometimes offer 3 or 4 months for $10 if you ask to cancel. Otherwise it’s always $15

  27. The SR prob small enough just to cover half your face 🤣🤣 so small their product samples are :/

    • I got SR C.E.O. brightening serum and C.E.O. Glow face oil in two separate boxes, both in full size. Luna sleeping oil and ceramic slip in deluxe-size samples that lasted months. The only SR sample i have gotten that was small was the A+.

      • Oh yeah I loved getting the full size SR oil and moisturizer in my box few months ago , wish this one would be full size , but tidal wave was kinda small, but liked it so much added it in large size to my skin care routine , got it full size in my quartley SR box 😁 the oil goes a long way and is great you only need a little

    • A little of these products goes a long way. I have a sample of Tidal from June that I’ve used every other day. I still have a third of it left.

  28. Horrible!!!

  29. Only thing I’m interested in is the new Sunday Riley. And I bet Sephora will have it as a gift with purchase. At least that way I’m spending my money on something I actually want/need.

  30. Repeat items much? I mean, i like liquid shadows- but i subscribe to boxes to get new items and try new products I haven’t before.

    I’m not one for complaining about a $15 beauty box since the value has always been pretty good. Just seems weird to have the exact same item (shade even!) within a few months time.

    • I rather spend $15.00 on Macy’s bag minus their customer service I always get to try new stuff in their as well 🙂

    • I believe the rose gold is a different color than the previous shade but yes, it’s close. That’s my biggest complaint right now – the repeats of almost the exact same product even if they are same brand/different color or same product/different brand… I have already skipped 3 months in the last 12 months, but I getting October. I want that bum cream! I also had fun with that previous modelco liquid shadow. I would still prefer rose gold over silver🤪

      • Oh geez… rose gold is st barts. It really doesn’t look it. So, if they stick to the no duplicate for current subscribers… i guess, i am getting the silver😬

  31. I got that eye lite from Allure and for a single instagram pic it might be great but to actually wear it was absolutely horrible. At first I was impressed by the pigment but then it crinkled up on my eyes as it dried down.

    • Agreed so drying

    • And after it dried it flaked off! It was very painful when I was wearing my contacts.

    • Yup, it’s horrible.

  32. This looks like a great box! I’ll have to rejoin in October, because I am not interested in the September box.

  33. I really hope the Sunday Riley isn’t the tiny one use size like the tidal ipsy just mailed out last month. I know it isn’t full size, but somewhere in the middle would be great! Hoping for the granite color on the Model Co. 😊

    • There is a $22 .50 oz mini available at beautylish I think so it’s probably that one? I’d hope so anyway!! lol

  34. I have a model co eyelite in St Barth’s from 4 or so months ago I’m pretty sure is from Allure. What is this madness.

    • Allure didn’t send an eyelite in the past four months. They haven’t sent one this entire year as of yet. (At least not in any of my boxes) Maybe it’s from another box? I’m loving all these spoilers thus far tho! GJ Allure!

      • Not true. We got St. Bart’s in May. Mine is still in the box!

      • I got this also but mine was all dried out. 🙁

      • Nope it was in May so right at 4 months. Check out the MSA review of allure’s May 2019 box. Same item same shade. Oh, Allure.

      • lol I now will have THREE of hose eyeshadows. Here’s hoping for the gray one at least to break it up a bit.

        I would gander a guess the SR isnt fullsize but any ideas how big it will be?

      • Very small, but larger than the glamglow sample jars from sephora/sephora Play if that’s helpful at all.

      • Hmm my mistake then! That is definitely disappointing that they are putting in repeat items so quickly! ☹️

    • I got the St. Barths as well. I’m pretty sure it was an Allure box a few months ago.

    • Yes, May 2019.
