July 2014 Allure Sample Society Review


As the UPS man stopped in my driveway today, I had to fight to contain my excitement.  Why? Because in his hand was a box I've been eagerly anticipating, Allure Sample Society.

If you asked me a month ago, I would have told you I would never resubscribe to them. It wasn't the box for me at all..... However, when I checked my email last month I noticed something very important,  an email that called out to me with its devilish subscription box siren song.....

Allure Sample Society had been revamped. I tried to resist, but my curiosity got the better of me and I grabbed a box, not really expecting to see anything vastly different from their previous boxes (which I majorly disliked).

But oooooh my dolls! It's the best makeover I've ever seen and you are sure to get hooked back in just like I did! It's still $15 per month so it's very affordable.


New box design!  Loving it!!


Each box still comes with the Allure mini magazine,  but it's so much nicer and more informative than it used to be!


Holy Mother of Makeup!!!!!!! Sample Society, you've got my undivided attention. This is about a million times better than my last box. I gotta give them some major kudos for this!


Butter London nail polish in Champers - $15 ---- I am crazy obsessed with Butter London at the moment and this is a drop dead beautiful metallic color and 3 free formula. Quick dry time, beautiful color, and a smooth and even application. I can't tell you the last time I got so excited over a nail polish!


Fekkai PrX Reparatives Intense Fortifying Masque - $24.99 --- I love it! Despite the fact that i have a cosmetology license,  I honestly haven't played around with to many Fekkai products. This is a very rich formula that works to repair damaged hair. It's works some crazy wonderful magic on my split ends, that's for sure!


Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris Aqua Universalis Eau De Tollette --- I'm not a big fan of this scent personally. It's a bit to strong for me.  It's a nice smell, just not for moi!


L'Oréal Paris Extraordinaire by Colour Riche Liquid Lipcolor in Coral Encore - $9.99 --- First, that is some pretty packaging!! I haven't used L'Oréal in years but this color is absolutely beautiful.  It's thick, but not sticky and gives that super sexy wet look to your lips. I thought I would hate this color but it's absolutely perfect for summer!


Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlighter 01 - $36.00 --- Ahhh!! I'm ridiculously excited about this! First, because this one thing alone is worth more than twice the box cost. Second,  because it's Laura Mercier! It's light and full of subtle shimmer. Perfect for highlighting those brow and cheekbones!

The cost of this box is $15 and i received over $90 worth of product. I don't know what else I can say about this..... Sample Society. .. you've completely enchanted me. This makeover you've had has washed away every other opinion I've ever had of this box. I'm serious,  my dolls, this may go down as one of my top beauty boxes ever. Quality and size are phenomenal.  No more tiny tiny depressing samples. Nope. Just complete perfection.
