August 2014 Allure Sample Society Review


One of my most coveted subscription boxes arrived (finally!!) today. I will full admit that i can full speed to the end of my driveway as soon as I spotted the UPS truck coming down the road. I'm fairly certain they think I'm a crazy person by now, but it's completely worth it.

For those who don't know,  Sample Society is a monthly subscription service by Beautybar.com and Allure. The cost is $15.00 per month and you receive 5 beauty products. 


The sample sizes are very generous and occasionally you'll see a full size product in your box as well. Sample Society recently went through a major box overhaul and I'm thrilled with what I've seen so far. They've soared to my top 10 boxes list, that's for sure! 


They always include a mini magazine that explains the theme for the month as well as a very detailed description of each product and why the editors chose them. This month is 'The Big Easy' and it's full of essential products to give you that effortless style you love!


Ciate mini paint pots nail polish in 'Cha Cha Cha' --- I've always loved this brand. This mini sized polish is a beautiful coral color with a matte finish. Ya'll know I have an affinity for matte polish so of course I love this!


Oribe Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse --- This smells amazing and gives you a crunch free lightweight tousled beachy look we all know and love.


Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in 'Melted Peony' --- yeah... so I'm going to be needing more of this. I love it! Not only is the packaging chic, the formula is wonderful. It goes on like a gloss but gives a very pigmented, sticky free, Matte finish.  So happy i can rock this shade too!


Kate Somerville Dilo Oil Restorative Treatment --- A shine free, non greasy oil that helps to repair the skin and boost moisture to reduce lines and firm your gorgeous face!


Jane Iredale Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara in 'Black Ice' --- mascara in this type of packaging is a new one for me and I love it. The brush is wonderful and it gives your lashes just enough oomph for the easy everyday look.

This is another home run for me. I love everything in this month's box and can't think of a single issue at all. It's a great mix of products and I love that they've curated them with such diversity.  Here's hoping next month is just as fabulous as the last!!
