September Subscription Beauty Boxes: Allure, Ipsy, & Sephora Play! Box

Allure beauty boxes, Ipsy glam bags, and Sephora play boxes arrive at my doorstep each month and I love it. Some may say I have a beauty box addiction while I think I’m getting a great deal for beauty while getting to trying new products, whatever you have to tell yourself to keep on getting them each month, am I right? My mom has always told me to get things in 3’s so I can blame my mom for my bad habit of trying out different subscription boxes, and since each subscription box doesn’t arrive on the same day I always have something to look forward to each month, at least 3 times. So here’s what I got this month along with my reviews on everything! Enjoy!


  1. Allure beauty box $15.00 plus tax & free shipping!
  • BVLGARI OMNIA coral (0.17 FL OZ)

This fragrance is my new favorite! The notes on this fragrance are described as: Bergamot, Goji Berries, Hibiscus Flower, Water Lily, Pomegranate, and Cedarwood.

  • ORLY breathable treatment + color in nail superfood (full size)

I love nail polishes with a large applicator wand like this one and the color is a perfect coral! It’s not too pink or red like other coral nail polishes. I currently have this on my nails and it’s perfect!

  • EAU THERMALE Avene PhysioLift eye cream (0.06 FL OZ)

I have yet to try this eye cream out yet but on the back of my hand it feels very lightweight and has a cooling effect which I love!

  • GrandePRIMER lash primer

HOLY MOLY stop what you’re doing and go buy this lash primer. It’s the best lash primer I have ever used! It literally looks like I could be wearing false eyelashes and I love it.

  • Supergoop! Shine On Lip Screen SPF 50 (0.05 FL OZ)

I love how this chapstick has SPF 50, say what! I love how it tastes minty and it looks so luscious on my lips. It feels like I’m wearing a lip gloss without the stickiness.

  • Pur-lisse 4-1 cleansing milk (1.0 OZ)

This facial soap has white tea, soy milk, and whole oats, which all sounds good to me but I still haven’t come around to trying this little guy out!


  1.   Ipsy glam bag $10.00 plus tax & free shipping that also comes with a free bag that you can either put in your purse to hold your makeup, tampon bag, pencil bag, etc.  
  •  Tarteist Tarte mascara travel size (0.10 FL OZ)

I expected something more from this mascara since I love their lights, camera, and splashes waterproof mascara. It’s okay, but I wouldn’t purchase it again.

  • Naked advanced aloe cream (0.75 FL OZ)

This moisturizer has no scent and is very lightweight. I prefer a more thicker moisturizer for my skin so I ended up giving this to my little brother since he’s starting to get into skincare and he loves it.

  • Bellapierre cosmetics mineral blush in Autumn glow (0.21 FL OZ)

To be honest I did not like my glam bag this month at all besides the bag… This blush is a nude-ish coral color with shimmer, it’s just ugh. I’m not crazy about this color as it barely shows up on my skin tone. I’ll try to use this as an eyeshadow possibly. But other then that, it will just be sitting in my makeup collection, waiting to be either be used or thrown away soon.

  • Be a bombshell nail polish in Va voom (full size)

This nail polish color is a very deep dark purple which, from far away, could pass for being the color black and it has a wide wand which I love!

  • Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep conditioning mask (1 FL OZ)

This hair mask has a blend of avocado, sweet almond, and argan oils but smells like coconuts. I love it! I haven’t gotten around to trying this out but I’m excited to see what this does to my hair, hopefully more moisture! Fingers crossed.


  1. Sephora Play! Box $10.00 plus tax & free shipping!!
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills clear brow gel (0.085 FL OZ)

I already own the full size of this product and I absolutely love it! This truly makes your brows stay in place, so when I saw this product in this box I was happy to have a travel size so I put this in my makeup bag in my purse!

  • Kat Von D tattoo liner in Trooper (0.007 Fl OZ)

WOW, just wow! This liner is amazing and is now my new favorite liquid liner. Before, I was using the Stila one and everyone kept telling me how this was amazing and I didn’t believe them because I loved the Stila liquid liner so much! Well now that’s changed. It goes on so smooth and has a very fine tip so I can get my cat eye just right! Amen!

  • Sephora Rouge Brillance Rouge Shine in Love Spell ( 0.035 FL OZ)

This lipstick goes on very smooth and it’s like my lip color but more pink. I ended up giving this to my mom since she likes a more creamy lipstick and I prefer a matte lip or a lip gloss.

  • Living proof perfect hair day night cap overnight perfector (1 FL OZ)

So apparently this is supposed to give your hair a full week of softness and shine… Is it to good to be true? I still have to test this out but I have tried other products from Living proof and I have yet to be disappointed about anything, so I’ll let you know how it goes!

  • OLEHENRIKSEN Sheer transformation moisturizer (0.25 FL OZ)

This moisturizer claims that it can be a makeup primer as well, I don’t know about that since I like using a pore minimizing primer but using this product as a moisturizer is alright! It’s very lightweight but gives my skin moisture which I need but it’s not something that I would go ahead and repurchase when I run out.

  • Atelier Cologne Sud Magnolia

In each Sephora Play! Box there’s always a sample of a perfume which I love because I can try out new scents each month and not just be stuck with the same perfume that I always wear. This scent is very clean and fruity, which I adore.

  • Sephora Play! Box card

Every month you get a card that gives you an extra 50 points with any purchase in stores! Plus, Sephora holds a special event at their store so you can meet other members who also get this box. I haven’t been to one but I think it’s a fun concept to meet new people who love makeup as much as you do!!

So if you had to get one of theses 3 boxes which one would you choose? I definitely say get either the Allure box (first box is $10.00 plus tax) or the Sephora Play! box because you know you’re going to get high end makeup every time since they don’t carry any drug store items there and for $10.00 per month what do you have to lose? Ipsy this month disappointed me. I think it’s time to cancel it again. What do you think? Or maybe I could just wait for one more month. Decisions, Decisions!
