Allure Beauty Box October 2018

Allure Beauty Box | October

Beauty Blog

I have to start off by saying this was my favorite Allure box ever!  I was so excited to receive seven products all from amazing companies.  I hope this trend continues because I was very pleased with this box.

1. Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara in Ultra Black 

Hourglass cosmetics is one of my favorite companies, they always create fantastic products and have the most beautiful packaging.  The strengths of this product are that it lengthens and gives volume.  I do like it a lot, but it still doesn’t top my favorite mascara of all time by Too Faced.  (Read more about that here).

2. Sunday Riley Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment 

I’ve written before about my love for this product, you can read all about that here.  It absolutely lives up to the hype and I would say it is worth the high price tag.

3. Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser 

This cleanser is amazing on its own, or you can pair it with the good genes treatment to create a flash facial (read all about that here).  This cleanser definitely made my skin feel clean, clear and bright.  For me, the price tag is a little high for a cleanser, but if you are looking for something to clean and detoxify problem skin, this might be the solution for you.

4. Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Matte Liquid Lip Stain 

This lip stain is fantastic.  The color is extremely bold and lasts for a long time, but the formula doesn’t leave your lips feeling dry which is very rare to find.  If you are looking for the perfect bold lip shade for fall, absolutely check out this lip stain and you will not be disappointed.

5. Caudalie Vinopure Skin Perfecting Serum

I really wanted to like this product because I love Caudalie so much, but unfortunately it wasn’t a good fit for me.  The thing that I didn’t like about it was the smell.  It wasn’t that it was a bad product or irritated my skin in any way, but the smell was horrible.  It reminded me of bug spray and after I applied it the smell was so strong it was making me nauseous.  I hoped the scent would disappear but I could still smell it throughout the day.  For that reason, I would not purchase this in the future.  If you are not sensitive to smells, this might not bother you, but if you are like me, you will not like this product.

6. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

I’ve written many times before about my love for First Aid Beauty.  I really think they are one of the most underrated companies out there right now.  Every product I have ever used from them has been amazing.  This ultra repair cream is my go to winter moisturizer.  It is extremely hydrating in even the coldest temperatures and is a must have in your beauty arsenal.  I wouldn’t recommend this for the warmer months but it is perfect in cooler temperatures.

7. BKR Paris Water Balm 

This lip balm is fantastic.  It is hydrating without being sticky and absorbs beautifully.  I also love that it received the clean at Sephora seal meaning that it is formulated without sulfates, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil and many other harmful ingredients.  I highly recommend this product.
