The Beauty Quadrant: Allure Beauty Box October 2019!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with another post!

Allure Beauty Box October 2019!

Well, it’s time for another Allure Beauty Box and it looks like the box with a lid thing is now their newest packaging. I think they’re doing this a way to save the planet from plastics with the bags thing. Oh well, but let’s see what I got this month!

Sunday Riley Ice Nicinemide Moisturizing Cream: First is a cream from Sunday Riley and I thought it was an eye cream at first but I do make mistakes. I did use the Vitamin C moisturizer by them and thought it was okay but let’s see what this one holds. This is a new product from Sunday Riley that it helps with taking on dry complexions even flaking. This contains ceramides and it looks thick but gets absorbed quickly. Well, when I used it on my under eyes by accident it did absorb pretty quickly. Now that I know it’s meant as a face one I will see how it goes since I do moisturize before makeup and my skin can be dry and I am healing some acne spots with my skin care regimen. Retail price is $65.
M-61 Power Glow Peel: How should I explain this fan favorite item? Well, it comes on pads where you rub on your face and it contains chamomile and glycolic and salicylic acids to help make skin glow. I have sensitive skin and never tried a peel except in mask form but prefer a sheet mask. I have to try this out since this box is supposed to be skin care before the winter comes and well here on the coast it comes with a big hit! I will see how these go! This retails #30 for ten treatments!
Sol Dejanero Brazilian Bum Bum Cream: Oh man! I heard so many good things about this everywhere on YouTube! It’s the famous Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and man it smells amazing! You can use this on your body but I use it on my hands since it contains cupuac butter and the smell reminds you of the coconuts and the sweet popcorn that is sold on the shores of Rio. This retails for $45!
ModelCo Eye Lights Liquid Eye Shadow in Granite: Another one of these and wishing that Allure get liquid eye shadows from other great brands! This is a blackened silver shadow that looks fresh and doesn’t crease. Can be worn alone or with the trio that comes in the box this month. I remembered getting one of these but it ran out too quickly and when I saw this in my box it did not feel full-size either so I am hoping that it lasts me a bit this time. I wished they go to other brands like Tarte since Ipsy has gotten the Chrome Paint Pots or even Steela for their famous cream shadows. Anyways this retails for $9.
ModelCo Metallic Shadow Trio in San Tropes: This is a metallic bronze trio that makes smoky eyes simple. It has a bronze shade, a brown, and a lighter shade for brow bones and inner corners. I think this would go good with my Urban Decay pencil in Smog since it is a coppery brown pencil. I did remember getting a trio similar to this but this fits more like alley. This retails for $13.
Deep Mineral Sea Bath: I gave these bath salts to my fiancé, Gondras, because of course he is always on his feet at work and is in pain when he gets home! This has a lavender and eucalyptus scent and when pouring the entire packet in you get a blue tint to your water that doesn’t stain. It will help him with his achy spots! This retails for $20.
Limify Redness Relieving Eye Drops: Something different in the box and it’s from Bosh & Lomb and it’s their Lumify Redness Relief Eye Drops that work within minutes after application. I did have some allergy issues on Thursday and figured to try these and they did help in relieve some irritation in my eyes. So, I will have to keep using these! I have a feeling these retail for around $7+.

Well guys that is it for this box. I am not sure about this box guys because I felt it was a bit of a miss this month. Well, mainly for the ModelCo stuff. I rarely see them mentioned in the articles I read since I see more on Revlon, Maybelline, Huda Beauty, and so many more brands that are luxury, prestige, and drugstore, heck even indie brands get mentioned. I hope next month has better products since I did see a Peter Thomas Roth possibility for November. I will see how much longer I will keep this box because I do like Allure Magazine but I like my three other beauty boxes slightly more since I get to try a broader range of brands and products from them but here I feel like they get to repetitive. Come on Allure! Well, next is another book review from NetGalley!
