Allure Beauty Box August 2018 #allure #allurebeautybox #beautybox #beauty #makeup

I love makeup! Whether it’s wearing it, purchasing it, or learning about it, makeup and beauty products fascinate me. All the different products, brands, formulas and colors – there is so much to beauty! I’m not sure about you, but I hate purchasing a full-size product, using it and then finding out I HATE it! What’s worse is when you can’t return it after you discover you don’t like it. That’s where the beauty box subscriptions come in handy. You get to try out products and decide for yourself if you like them or not and whether you want to purchase them in the future. If you go to the Sephora site (or even the store), you’ll notice the red “Allure” symbols on various products. These are “Best of Beauty Award Winners” chosen by Allure. Knowing this, I was really excited to start receiving the Allure Beauty Box Subscription Boxes.

When I signed up, I actually received two boxes during the same month – the August 2018 and September 2018 Allure Beauty Boxes. The August 2018 Allure Beauty Box included some things I wouldn’t try, but it also included some that I would try! It included the following items in the box:
