I used the fig scented shampoo and conditioner yesterday and I’m glad that it was only a sample. Lol. My hair is a greasy mess this morning. The nail polish color is lovely against my olive skin. The real winner was the Wilma under eye pads. Those things really work! I will be ordering more of those asap.

Has anyone purchased the October box from Amazon as opposed to directly from Allure? I’m curious because usually the picture on Amazon shows the same products that are in the box that comes from having an Allure subscription but this month the picture is slightly different. And honestly the Amazon picture looks pretty amazing so I’m wondering if I should order that one…can anyone comment please? Thank you!

Hi! I subbed through Amazon and just got the Oct box yesterday. It was the same items as shown on here from Allure directly, plus I was super excited to discover I even received both new member gifts as well in my box. The main picture for the box on the Allure Amazon page seems to just be a sampling photo. You have to scroll down and then there is a pic below the description that gets changed out for the current month’s box items – minus the new member gifts of the month. This was my second Allure box from Amazon as I’d signed up at the very end of Sept. The Sept box did not include the new member gift but I’d read several places that you don’t get them through Amazon, so as I said, the Oct ones were a nice surprise!

The Verso Super Eye Serum is great but it’s not technically a full sized product and it was counted as one of the 3. The website to purchase this serum offers a full size at 1 ounce and the one in the box is .67 oz. I don’t mind but if you are going to raise the price and say 3 full sized items, they need to actually be full sized.

SO DISSATISFIED we basically paid $23 for a bigger packaging box and the same sample size products really??? $23 for a box isnt a lot but we definitely aren’t getting anything more than the $15 box and nail polish?? don’t get me started 😒 and if you all notice there’s no seals on the samples so you have less time to use them 🤦🏻‍♀️ They have until December to get it together

Wish I’d have known, I would have saved the set-up box I got in September. It’s such a bummer. The little things make a big difference

I just received my October box, it’s such a disappointment. So called full sizes items (except Vit C) looks so tiny to me. I signed up for a year and I hope I will not regret my decision. But if I need to pay $23 for a box, I wouldnt pick Allure between Ipsy and Boxy. I will skip November box and hopefully December will be a better month. If not, I will be so sad because almost the same amount of money, I could sign up for Causebox annually. I hope Allure boxes will get better.

I just received my box. I’m disappointed in the color of the nail polish: it’s completely different from the color displayed here, what I got it’s more of a cyanotic pink than a ballet pink. Not as subtle as I hoped.

You think the polish is NOT as subtle as you hoped? I wonder if I got something different. I also wanted ballet pink but it’s more of a sheer sheer beige-y mauve to me. Hate.

I have the same “irene” shade, but it really stands out on my hands, clearly not like a red or black, but way more than a ballet pink would. On The positive side, I like how it applies: I rarely apply nail polish and, when I do, I make a mess, but this one was more “forgiving” (even though it doesn’t seem it’s going to last long on my nails). Plus, I do like that doesn’t have many toxic substances. Still not a fan of the color.

I just received my box today and it’s exactly like the $15 box. A bunch of sample sizes with a full size vitamin c powder and nail polish. That’s it. I’m sure they’re counting the eye patches as a full size item too, which is BS. This box for $15 would be ok, but it’s absolutely not worth $23. I’m not understanding how they can justify charging so much for the same box as before. A Boxycharm premium is $25 and you get all full size products, and usually pretty good ones at that. I’ll try to give them a pass since this is only the first box, but if the November spoilers look like this month, I’m canceling. I need to save money anyway.

The eye serum is supposed to be the other full sized item per the customer service rep but the official website to purchase the serum sells a full sized version at 1 oz and this is a little over half that so no, it’s not full sized. I don’t like that they raised the price and said 3 full sized items when it technically was only 2!

I’ve been a month-to-month Allure Beauty Box subscriber since it was Sample Society. With the price change I called in and subscribed for the full year at the old price so apparently they consider me a brand new subscriber. I just received my “new member gift” but have not received an October box and no sign of one shipping. Is the “new member” box instead of the regular one, or in addition? Anybody know?

Well it looks like they are starting my annual with the November box and I’m not getting an October box at all. I just have to make sure I get 12 monthly boxes. (My “new member box” had a lot of stuff in it but almost exclusively things I’ve received from them before. It would have been a great collection for an actual new member.)

I’m the first to admit I’ve been very critical of Allure the past month or so. My previous boxes have been so good that all of the new changes and the new box is just a big let down. I received my October box today. When I opened it I was at least excited for the lip gloss and the Verso eye cream. The lip gloss is tiny. The entire box felt like I got a box of samples. They didn’t need to change the box size if this is how little was inside. I subbed for the year because I wasn’t going to pay over $20 usd for a box that is half samples. Allure is going to have to step up their game or even with the year sub I’m cancelling. I do Ipsy gbp for nearly the same price as the Allure box and get 5 full sized items every month. I get to choose three of them. Granted sometimes I’m not happy with the selection at first but even with the indie brands I have found myself loving the majority of the products they send me. This month with Allure felt like they were testing us out to see if they could raise the price without really giving us bigger and better products. That’s on top of the mega bundles being leftovers from previous months and even years.

Just got my box yesterday. And yeah…initially I was also bummed. It didn’t really seem all that different. However, can I just say I usually dump my lippies. I don’t wear lipstick well. But the red that arrived was somehow my magic color. Not too orange, somehow blue (which makes your teeth look whiter), and the most perfect red shade for me. Kind of obsessed with it. Anyway I’m going to dig into the rest of the items and hope for the best. BTW, I thought the nail polish color was hideous. But the eye cream is REALLY nice. We’ll see how that vitamin c powder goes. Fingers crossed.

Oh my gosh!!! Guys!! I just got my October Allure box and disappointed doesn’t even begin to describe it….. First, they made the box bigger so the” full size” items look even smaller. The full size nail polish isn’t even close to full size. The Verso eye cream is the biggest tube in the box and I guess it’s full size, but definitely NOT big enough to look like full size. It says 20ml on the tube. The NUE CO Topical-C product is a powder that you mix into a moisturizer. Maybe it’ll be a good product but it’s 15g ( full Size, right!!). I’m SUPER disappointed!!! Thank God I’m only paying $15 for this and the next 2 boxes. If product size doesn’t change, I’M OUT!!! This is NOT what I expected for the price tag. What are your thoughts?

I have verbally voiced my opinion to every person i know about this crap case of feces! I received only two boxes in total and those boxes were just fine! I sincerely thought with the price jump and all the hype about “bigger and better” that their new release would be smokin’ hot!

No. It’s garbage. Filthy garbage compared to the old price and products!

The old box even came packaged so very cute with that beautiful orange tissue paper and the engraved metallic wording on the tiny little shoe box!… I’m certain all the items from this box would fit in the old box! What changed? The height of the products??? Smallest full sized bottles EVER!…. and that vitamin C powder is lame!

I had the same type of experience with September’s box, which was my first box in my new year subscription. The Cleo eye line was advertised as being full sized and it was actually about half the size of the full size. I don’t know why they are lying so much.

I’m mad they took away the little white boxes with the lid!! I used those for storage of my samples or in my vanity drawers for separating makeup. Now it’s just a box that opens up without a box inside it like it used to be! It’s lower class and cheap looking and the value of the products inside is no more than in past months where the box was $15. I’ll give it two more months and if it’s not getting better in value I’m canceling!

Sorry for your disappointment! I cannot comment on the box since I’m still waiting for it, However- if it can makes you feel better- all my eye creams (full size) are around 15ml and they last me months. The only exception for me was the “eye cream for face” allure had in one of the past boxes, which came in a huge tube for being an eye cream (maybe is it because it’s an hybrid cream? No clue). As for the vit c powder, the only one I’m familiar with is the cosmedix’s pure C and I believe it came in a 6gr container. Despite this, I’m still not happy with the price increase 😛 (i did get the annual deal though, and for about 15$ this box is not too shabby for me)

@izzie I got the same box as you. That’s the mega bundle? I’m confused. It sort of looks like October based on spoilers yet it’s missing quite a few items. So is this box the combined October and mega bundle? Or are we getting an October box still? I bit the bullet and subbed for a year. I’m planning on having my hubby unbox for me and wrap them up to put in my “last years” advent calendar. At least for this and the next allure box. That should help with the initial disappointment with all the items they shoved in this box. Le sigh…

I’m curious what you got in your mega bundle. It doesn’t seem to be the same things in everyone’s boxes. I got a lot of leftovers from their previous boxes thrown into mine including several eye shadow trios. I’ll use 75% of what I got but I wasn’t impressed especially since some stuff had been discontinued and some was more than two years old.

I’m pretty sure your box goes out the next month around the time you paid/signed up originally. So if you signed up late in the month, your boxes will be sent out late in the month the following months. At lease that’s how it was with my subscription.

I think the value is absolutely there for someone who is not on product overload. I think a lot of the “meh’s” are from people who might have sub fatigue.

I passed and am opting to renew my annual to See New Skincare instead. With having to wear masks and it being so hot in Cali, I am not wearing much makeup. SNS hits all the marks for me for skincare, which is mostly what I would get Allure for. But, it’s still a solid value. Especially, for someone who is newer to subs.

No, I think people are feeling “meh” is because of the $8 increase and it’s a majority of indie brand products, creams and sample sized items, items that aren’t really that exciting. For $25 you could get full sized, mainstream brand items in boxycharm. I still feel like this month is in the $15 range not $23. Also, the Dr. Jart and La Roche Posay are TINY samples…

I have mixed feelings. Like, $23 is on par with Boxy and Ipsy GBP, which contain only full-size products and no samples at all. As a business model, I prefer that, because I have actually never in my life tried a small sample-sized product and then decided to spend what is generally, to me, a lot of money on the full-size (and more importantly, full-price) version of the product. Most of my tiny samples go unused, or I try to give them away. It’s not what I am in the market for, at all, though I can see how other people might be. Rather, I use the sub boxes for “access” to nicer quality products than I could otherwise afford or would be willing to spend.

That said, I’m not super unhappy about the price increase. It’s been a long time coming, and they aren’t supposed to be counting sheet masks or brushes in the minimum quantity of full-size items in each box. I actually didn’t get charged the increased price this month – I was charged the $15 rate even though I am just a regular monthly subscriber.

I am happy enough with the October box spoilers, in particular the Vit C powder. Between Allure, Boxycharm, and Ipsy GB, though, I am practically drowning in eye creams, which I guess is not the worst problem to have.

For me it’s definitely the increase. I don’t see much change in the contents, actually I think we’ve received better boxes in the past. A couple of the samples this month are tiny. It’s just not a $23 box IMO. I’m not on overload at all, I just don’t think it’s worth the price. I’m considering locking it in for a year at the lower price, Allure is always worth $13-14 to me. It’s just a lot to pay up front, so I’m on the fence. That deal will be good till November for those interested, that’s what Allure customer service told me when I cancelled.

I’m not as excited about October as September was much better for me but I do think there’s value in this sub at $13.75+ tax. Not everyone is going to like the curation every month as everyone has different tastes. When I looked back at the prior year’s Allure, I did find more products that I would have used than not. Ipsy is still doing those old mystery bags for $14+ tax and only 5 products plus a small bag with those usually all sample sized. You could compare it to the regular $12 sub but then again, there’s so many variations that the value is really hard to compare each month.

I definitely see the value, especially at the old price, but considering how many beauty boxes I have stockpiled, some practically untouched, I just couldn’t do the annual deal. Total overload! I’ll get any that really grab me, and October didn’t. I’m also concerned that Allure may revert to more variation in the boxes, and I hate that.

I can’t imagine not seeing the value here. I mean, if someone doesn’t want these particular things, that’s totally fair. But for me this is $14.50 (with tax) for 7 things, 6 if you don’t count the foil shampoo/conditioner. 6 things at $2.41 per item. The topical C looks super interesting to me and is normally $70. If I don’t like it, how amazing to find out for $2.41 and not $70. The nail polish at $2.41 is an expensive brand and cheaper than Sinful Colors at Target. I’m psyched.
