Hi, guys, I'm back with the Allure Beauty Box unboxing for July. I have been patiently awaiting this box because it's their collab with Huda Kattan of Huda Beauty! I'm such a fan that I *squeed* when I got it! πŸ˜‚It includes some really great full-sized products and samples from Huda Beauty, Kayali, OUAI, Too Faced, and Tonymoly and I'll walk you through it + I've got SPOILERS for August's box. Let's unbox it!

Allure Beauty Box - July 2019


Welp, it turns out I did get bumped up to an earlier shipping batch since I got this earlier than I used to. Not as early as last month, but that's probably because of the holidays.


When you open it, there's a guide/mag right on top telling you all about the products inside and every month, there are exclusive discount codes included in the booklet for some of the box products, and I always share these just in case someone can use them! This month's codes are:

  • Huda Beauty: 25% off with the exclusive one-time code included in the box. I only have one and it expires on 8/31/19, so if you know you're going to use it, the first one to ask in the comments gets it emailed to them. πŸ™‚
  • urbandecay.com: ALLURE10 for 10% off your entire order (7/1/19 - 9/1/19)
  • theouai.com: ALLURE19 for 15% off your entire order (7/1/19 - 9/1/19)
  • tonymoly.us: ALLURE20 for 20% off full-priced items (7/1/19 - 8/31/19)


The cosmetics bag this month is another slip-in-band style and in neon pink. This one is kind of cool as the cut edges glow neon in the sun. Yes, my daughter has claimed it. ;)


I'm loving the art in this month's box. It's very mod with a quote from Huda Kattan in the lid. FYI, Huda Beauty is a great follow on Instagram for some amazing makeup and skincare tips and tricks via their feed & IGTV videos.


First out of the box is a full-sized Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick ($20) in Alluring, a custom orange-red color made exclusively for this collab. You can only get this shade in this month's box!

I am so sorry about that vein, y'all. It's hot here! πŸ˜†

About the line: "The tried and true comfort-wear formula from top beauty expert, Huda Kattan, is infused with antioxidants and an exclusive complex to help maintain the lips' hydration. The lightweight formula glides on a thin coat of color that intensifies as it sets to a matte, transfer-free finish with amazing staying power."

This color is really gorgeous and I'm excited to rock this warm red shade all summer!

Next out is the Tonymoly Intense Care Gold 24k Snail Hydrogel Mask ($10). It is made with actual snail mucin. Snail slime. Snail snot, if you will.

"The luxe, gel-type mask...is infused with a cocktail of hydrating ingredients to leave the complexion feeling intensely nourished and supple. 24K Gold helps to brighten and soothe sensitive skin, and a blend of Fermented Snail Mucus essence, Ginseng extracts and EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) improve hydration and radiance while encouraging collagen production..."

It has amazing reviews, but...ummmm. Hmmm. I don't know about this one, guys. This mask may be the holy grail of sheet masks (and you guys know how much I love facial masks), but I just don't know if I can put this on my face.

Next out is something I've been wanting to try for a little while now. It's a sample of Kayali Vanilla | 28. (1.7 oz. is $85, so this .03 oz. sample is worth $2.55)

"...a masterpiece of refined and cultivated nuance. A time-honored union of creamy jasmine and rich Madagascan vanilla orchid draws out the sweet softness of Brazilian tonka. Beautifully balanced oriental notes of musk, amber, patchouli, and brown sugar form the distinguished wood base of this utterly sublime scent."

It is lovely.


It's one of 4 Kayali fragrances that Huda Kattan developed with her sister, Mona. They're designed to be layered to create your own custom scent and I love that idea. You can get it in a set of 4 miniatures to try out and play with for $95. If anybody wants to send me a birthday gift, just let me know. πŸ˜‰

Next out are the Huda Beauty Samantha #7 Classic Lashes ($20). These are fairly new and I've heard people rave about them. They're a medium-volume, more natural style of lash. The ends are various lengths, just like real lashes, for a more natural look.


They are really gorgeous, but I have a confession to make: I have never successfully gotten a pair of false lashes onto my lids. I bought a pair years ago and every once in a while, I'll give it another go with no success. I don't know if it's the cheap lash glue that came with them, but I just can't get them on. I'm going to have to buy a good lash glue and give these a try. Any recommendations?

Next out is a travel size from one of my favorite hair brands: OUAI Texturizing Hair Spray ($12). It's a more flexible hair spray, less for hold and more for definition/texture. Everything from OUAI smells incredible, so I was happy to get a new product to try out from them.

"An ultra-lightweight product that combines the best parts of dry shampoo and hair spray, to build incredible volume and texture."

Last out is a sample of the Hangover Replenishing Primer by Too Faced, another favorite brand. (The 1.35 oz. is $34 so this .16 oz. sample is worth $4.25) This is one of 3 options sent out in boxes this month. You could also receive The Benefit Ka-Brow Cream-Gel Brown Color or the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero.

About the Hangover Primer: "Cure your next beauty hangover with Hangover, a revolutionary makeup primer that's infused with coconut water, a probiotic-based ingredient, and skin revivers which work together to boost skin’s radiance, promote elasticity, and help hydrate while locking down makeup for fresher, longer, and more flawless wear."

I've actually tried this one before and liked it. It's a great primer if you have dry skin or skin that tends to dry and flake under a matte foundation.

Last out of the bag were two cards. One was a custom code for 25% off at the Huda Beauty site.


The other was a first: a scratch card that gives spoilers for August! It was kind of cool getting some spoilers right in your box.

Okay, guys, that was the full July Beauty Box from Allure x Huda Kattan. This has been one of my all-time favorite boxes despite the snail snot mask. ;) The box costs $15 per month and this month's box had a value of $68.80! What do you think about this collab? 


I got this one early in the month, so it will still be available if you want to get it. As always, I recommend going through Amazon because while the boxes themselves are great, Allure's customer service is not, and Amazon will get behind you if you have any problems.

SPOILERS AHEAD! Allure Beauty Box July 2019 items:


We know for sure that next month's box will contain:


I'll add additional products once I find out! Get the Allure Beauty Box here.
