Happy Weekend Pettigrew Crew!

I hope you’re all being pampered this weekend. I know I feel super pampered by my latest Allure Beauty Box. It’s seriously one of my favorite boxes yet. Don’t you just love it when Brands compete? I feel like my beauty boxes just keep getting better. Enough suspense, let’s jump into my review and don’t miss my 1st YouTube beauty box unboxing video at the end of the post. So exciting!

Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow Review - Allure Beauty Box

Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow

First up is this quad eyeshadow pallet for smokey-eyes. I am digging this French brand {oh la la} and these shadows. This pallet is the perfect size for travel {or everyday} It’s so easy to handle and store. The packaging is clean, cute and I love that they added a nice quality mirror. The colors are very pigmented and blendable, so I am able to do a smoky-eye and blend it out quickly. Love that.

*Note Worthy: the rose pink shade is my new go-to eyeshadow with a smokey-eye or an every day look. It’s kind of a perfect color!

Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo Review - Allure Beauty Box

Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo

We’re all loving dry shampoo right now right?? It’s quite the hot hair trend. This Oscar Blandi invisible dry shampoo gets the oil out and makes my hair look freshly washed, it’s also bomb at adding tons of volume to my roots. For me though, it does get marks off for the smell. It’s not terrible, it’s just not pleasant either. I’m still partial to the Amika Dry Shampoo you can get HERE at a discounted price, which works just as hard, but smells divine.

*Hair Tip: You can use dry shampoo right after a regular shampooing for added volume and to help keep your scalp oil free longer.

Burt's Bees Lipstick Review - Allure Beauty Box

Burt’s Bees Lipstick

I’m a big lip balm kind of gal and I also love pigmented nude lips, so you can imagine how stoked I am by this Burt’s Bees lipstick in Blush Basin. It’s a bright, peachy nude with great color pay-off on my lips, but it has the moisturizing quality of a lip balm. I love a lip product that looks great and is also good to my lips. {I’m looking at you liquid matte lipstick!}

*Fun Fact: Burt’s Bees packaging is made from recycled plastic. Yay!

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Review - Allure Beauty Box

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion

I love what a good scrub can do for my skin. I’ve been obsessed with my coffee scrub lately, {I’ll share that soon} but it’s a coarse, deep scrub and I only use it about once a week. This Microdermabrasion from Dr. Brandt is very finely milled and feels like tiny little grains of sand on my face. It’s gentle and I can use it more often, but it leaves my skin feeling soft and exfoliated.

*Coming Soon: I’ll be doing a DIY coffee scrub post soon, so be sure to subscribe!

Sigma E25 Blending Brush Review - Allure Beauty Box

Sigma E25 Blending Brush

This could be my favorite item in the box, but all of the products were so awesome this month that it’s impossible to pick. I’ve wanted to try some Sigma brushes for a while now and just haven’t had a chance. This E25 blending brush is my new favorite blender! Its soft, but holds it’s structure and puts that shadow right where I want it. It’s also perfect at making my eye shadows play nice together and blends like a champ. Plus, this pink wand is so pretty and the size is perfect to throw in a makeup bag. Yes please!

*Note Worthy: Sigma uses cruelty-free synthetic brushes. Love it!

BioBelle Facial Mask Review - Allure Beauty Box

BioBelle Facial Mask

We first have to talk about this packaging! Swoon city for sure. I’m a firm believer that facial sheet masks should come in pretty packaging and this product passes the test for sure. This mask went on intensely moisturizing and stayed that way during the 20 mins I kept it on. {make sure to wash all of the product off after the mask or your skin will be very sticky. I had to wash my face 3 times} Once off, it left my skin feeling tighter, smoother and had a pore minimizing effect. All super good results from a mask I’d say!

*It’s Super Powers: Antioxidants & Hyaluronic acid for fighting signs of aging.

Beauty Buzz: What did you think of my 1st YouTube beauty box UNBOXING?


17 thoughts on “Allure Beauty Box January 2017 Review + Unboxing Video!”

  1. What a great review! I love the box and especially the dry shampoo spray! I have oily hair which I cannot shampoo every day and this would be perfect product to use probably every day!!!

  2. This does look like a great box! I’d love to find a perfect pink eye shadow – and I love Burts Bees lip balm, so I imagine their lipstick would be amazing too! Dry Shampoo is my new favorite thing (I dont know how it took me so long to discover it!) – I have only tried one brand so far, but I think I will give a couple others a try soon!

  3. It looks like a great value! I don’t get the Allure box but I’ve been thinking about it for a while. Would you say it’s your favorite in general (not just this month)?
