I really like the colors of the Eyeko shadow stick, but it seems to have no staying power. I tested it on my arm and gave it time to set, but it just wiped right off.

Jess

Oh yeah. I used the lighter color all over my lid and the darker color as a liner and ended up with major raccoon eyes! I spent the rest of the day constantly wiping away the color from underneath my eyes. I like the colors so I’ll keep experimenting with it – maybe it’ll stick better with a primer – but definitely not using that dark brown as a liner again.

Tat

I got my box 8 days ago.
Does MSA still review boxes?

Ragan Buckley

I don’t review this box, but mine only shipped like yesterday and I won’t see it for awhile yet. I don’t think this box sends all theirs out at the same time.

Christina

I guess I got lucky, I absolutely LOVED my box. I got a different version than the one shown above. I feel happy and money well spent.

Jessica

I don’t know where to post this, but has anyone gotten their mani me nails from a few boxes ago. their app will not load on my phone and I have been trying to send photos for them to upload via email, but they keep telling me they are not clear. I know they are trying to be helpful, but I literally cannot make them any better than i am sending them. I would like to contact allure via email just to note that hey- this app may not work for everyone so you may actually never get to use the coupon from allure to try these out.

Ragan Buckley

I did get mine eventually, I had to resubmit my photos once. They told me I could send the images via email because I found the app tedious and cumbersome (I never shop for anything on a phone) although I ended up resubmitting them in the app. I have no idea what they didn’t like about my first set of images either.

Amy

I just got mine last week. Is there anyone that has a different phone that can take the photos for you? Also, the way my hands are shaped (think long alien fingers) I had a hard time taking a good photo…

ToniB

I redeemed my ManiMe Allure code on the website in February vs. using the app with no issues. I received my order within 2 weeks and I have ordered another set using the $10.00 voucher the company sent. The following link is for the page with Allure options:

Doreen

I got the manime nails in the mail last week after some delays from a large number of orders, presumably from allure subscribers. They were actually great by sending emails apologizing about the delay and even gave a $10 discount off my next order. I haven’t actually used the nails yet but am planning to soon.

Alice

I, too, have been unsuccessful.

Pink5

Got my box today, Amazon version.

I take back some of what I said about the eyeshadow stick. The “Dawn” side is a bit shimmery, so not so bad. Also comes with official Eyeoko sharpener.

Andrea

I am glad I prepaid before the price increase. None of these boxes have been worth the increase. If it was $18 I would think the value is there. I highly doubt I will be renewing after my year is up.

Nori

I don’t understand why they don’t listen to their customers I used to love allure and they have been going down hill since the price increase and the boxes are just not adding up after my annual membership is over I’m definitely going to cancel unless the box improves big-time because I feel like they have been on a huge decline Whatever word is opposite of improvement is the way I feel that they’ve been going do better allure it seems like they r just putting left overs in their box i’m honestly scared to skip a month because I feel like if I skip too many months and they go bankrupt I will lose all my money that I paid for the annual membership because they been doing so horrible I wouldn’t be surprised if the company closed

Yvette

I’ve been asking myself if the quality of the boxes has truly gone down or if our expectations are simply higher because of the price increase and promise of a box upgrade.

I do feel like we’re not receiving many fun and exciting brands. But the quality of the boxes is subjective – up to a point.

I thought Allure guaranteed us one more product each month now with the “upgrade”. But I went back through the 2020 inserts and found that we used to receive more items per month than we do now. We usually got a mask as the 6th item, but most of the time we got a small sponsored 7th item.

Now we don’t ever get more than 6 items. And that utterly disappointing December box only had 5 items plus a sponsored item. (They ended up having to throw something extra in last minute to uphold their promise after we voiced our displeasure.)

So…what it looks like to me is that for the price increase, in addition to getting disappointing items, we are also getting fewer items. If there is not a drastic change (unlikely) there is no way I’m renewing after my yearly expires.

Jamey

No, they have went downhill. You are paying a higher price (unless you locked in the discount) for the same kind of boxes they were sending out prior to the change.

Alecia

All these variables!!! WHY!! I always get the one i DONT WANT! If I get the BUM BUM and the pixi and mud masky I’ll be happy as I DO like 911 skin. I can gift the pencil I have a friend who needs to replace makeup she got evicted. Oh well I just feel for the price increase this box is not worth it this is still a $17.00 box NOT $26.00 ! Not even close

Angela DeSilva

I called the other day when spoilers first came out and skipped it’s easy.

Pink5

Or.. or…or.

Good God, if you’re going to that, just go full Ipsy already!!

AmyM

Yikes! Couldn’t skip fast enough.

Robin

Glad I skipped. Nothing really interests me about this one. It didn’t get suddenly compelling with the last spoilers.

Rachael Smith

Hard pass. This box sucks. Glad I can skip easily through amazing

Pink5

Took me a minute on the phone this afternoon. The customer service rep did ask why, since it seems like a lot of people are skipping.

Also Beth

Not super jazzed about this box either, but shoutout to Allure customer service for always being SUPER nice on the phone! This box inspired me to cancel but their rep was super duper sweet and it felt great to be able to cancel without a hard sell or anything. It’s so refreshing!

April

I canceled once they raised the price. So far it’s been a great decision. ..

LeanGreenBean

I love that mascara but it just doesn’t carry the box for me. I’m calling to skip.

Lana

It’s too late to skip now

Sherri

You have until the 3rd of the month to skip. I was specifically told this by a CS agent. My understanding is they can take a day or two to process an email, so I would suggest a phone call when getting close to the 3rd.

Liz

Not too late! I called this afternoon with no issues. She said tell me I was just in time because they start charging in two days.

Shortcake

You usually have until the 3rd of the Month to skip it.

Gracie

I would skip, but I’m only not since I truly believe Allure is going out of business soon and I figure I’ll get what I’ve already paid for rather than lose out on money. I will add, that I haven’t like any box since October. FFF has gone downhill as well. I am done with subscription boxes once my last two subscriptions run out. I pretty much hand my Allure boxes to my niece. If I add up what I pay for a year for FFF and Allure, I could buy some really nice and pricey makeup! 🤗 I am over subscriptions and feel like they prove that phrase…”If somethings too good to be true, it usually is.”

RO

I kind of suspect the same, sudden spice hike with no actual value increase as they promised. They are not seriously thinking they can compete with other subscriptions with this quality, aren’t they? They just want to take as much money they got so far and just….go bankrupt. I am an annual subscriber and I still have 10 months to go, I’d skip but I just want to get over with this crap and move onto the other. I am not sure if they last until I finish a year subscription especially if I had to skip this often lately.

Catherine E.

Subscription boxes are not profitable for any company (with a rare exception), they come with a lot more customer service issues and logistic nightmares. In addition, allure, which is not a makeup company has to make deals with other companies with the promise of “if you give us a free product, we will send customers directly to you” but that didn’t always turn out so a lot of companies don’t want to provide that many freebies anymore.

Allure thought the plastic makeup bags would pull people in but they didn’t and that stopped after what, 6 months? After the bags, they did a price increase with a promise of full products but they can’t deliver on that either because the cosmetic companies don’t want to play ball with the exception of the really big companies or the newer companies with a lot of financial backing.

There are big popular companies in the makeup world that want nothing to do with subscription boxes and there is a reason for it!

Jamey

If you keep skipping and they go bankrupt, you do not get your money back or anymore boxes. No matter if you dispute it or not. I’ve subbed to quite a few boxes that have just up and disappeared and took peoples money and that was it….one even would do that and start up under a different name, go for a bit and then take peoples money and run again….so really keep that in mind if you skip too much

Alice

Gracie, I feel the same. I now know exactly what I like after having tried so many products through subscriptions. I have three annuals that I’ll let expire. I just paused two others and I’m going to cancel those and a third. I’m done.

Jess

It truly feels that way, doesn’t it? I’ve suspected this since the price increase, hoping to be wrong, but something’s not right there. The more expensive boxes just don’t feel that much different than the ones at the old price point, and now they’re putting items that have appeared in the cheaper boxes in the more expensive boxes. I paid for the yearly subscription back in September even though it seemed like they were trying to get enough people to pay cash up front to stay afloat. I thought that because they’re owned by Condé Nast they might be safer than other boxes, but now I’m not so sure. I’m just hoping to get a few more months out of them. Even if they make it to September, I’m definitely not renewing unless they drastically change their boxes. That said, this isn’t a super terrible box; it’s just not exciting. Allure has been good about not sending repeats so I feel fairly confident about what I’m getting. I’ll use all of it except for that bright lipstick, but that’ll go to a friend who pulls off those colors really well.

Jamey

I have ALWAYS got repeats with them if you have stayed longer than a year. ..same self tanner stuff, same brand and everything, same sheet masks just one would be aloe, the other vicitan c or whatever….among many more …I cancelled after 7 years when the price increased

SBR

6 more months with March. I mean, I guess this box is worth the old rate I paid for my yearly. I am afraid to skip a month because I am afraid the following months will be worse😬. I hadn’t thought about them going bankrupt. Just waiting for this train wreck to end….

Pink5

Or they’re getting out of it and are trying to clear their warehouse.

Kim

Anyone have the phone number handy to skip? Thanks.

Katie

If you login into your account their is a phone symbol near the top and you can click on it and it will connect you if you do it from your phone. Just called to skip myself for the first time ever and I’ve had allure for years. It was easy peasy.

echo

Props for admitting the mistake! 😀

Katie

I used the wrong form of there and I am now mortified.

Jennifer

I skipped this month. Feb was awesome, so I’m not cancelling just yet, but there’s just nothing in this March one I really want or need. Maybe the Ahava hand cream or another bum bum cream would be cool, but if it’s the only thing I want, it’s not worth$23.

Maybe enough people will skip that they’ll avoid 111Skin being the hero product in future? Or at least ensure the company is giving them the genuine product and not a self-knock off in their own packaging?

JesCro

Wow. This is an awful selection.

Candi

Is it too late to skip? :/

Sherri

I was told by a CS rep that you had to call by the 3rd to skip for that month. I suggest calling in case they can’t get to an email by the 3rd.

Lana

Their website says end of month “The request must be processed before the end of the previous month.(To skip November’s box, members need to contact Customer Care before the last day of October.) ”
How is everyone still skipping?

Emily

No I think you can skip until the third. I just called about an hour ago and skipped.

Katie

I decided to skip last week before the full spoilers came and boy am I glad that I did. my first time skipping this box but if they don’t step it up it won’t be my last.

Shortcake

Girl saaaame. Never skipped before but called after the Laritzy spoiler to skip March. Allure has definitely been going down hill, especially since the price is (and therefore expectations are) higher, and I’m definitely worried they’re gonna go out of business before I get my money’s worth.

Emily

I skipped this month because I do not like the repeats of the Laritzy & Rodial Mascara and I kept hearing that 111 was made in China and also did not live up to the inflated value.

Pink5

I’ve tried the Rodial mascara – it’s not good.

Liz

Called to skip this box. It’ll be my first time skipping since I joined Allure June 2020. It doesnt look like a bad box, I just couldnt get excited by it. I have so much stuff these days so unless something is thrilling to me, I need to pass.
