Allure Sample Society March 2015 Unboxing Review

This is my first ever Allure Sample Society box and I honestly signed up because I wanted to try the new Benefit rollerlash masacara. So today I will be reviewing the products that I got. ^.^

This subscription costs $15 a month which is pretty expensive compared to IPSY and Birchbox and you get 5 deluxe size samples every month. It's not customizable to your preference not unlike Ipsy and Birchbox coz every body gets the same products every month but I think when it comes to makeup you can get different variety of colors included in your box in addition you get $10 gift code you can use at Beauty Bar website for a $50 minimum purchase.

Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture and Volume Spray
Deluxe size 1.5 oz $9
Product Description
A dry texturizing spray. Adds volume, makes dirty roots appear clean, boosts waves.
What I think so far...
I really like the texture it gives my hair. I spray it on my roots then brush it and gives volume and texture to my hair although it doesn't do much on keeping my oily hair shine free as much as I want it too so if you have oily hair too might wanna still use dry shampoo in combination with this. The scent of this doesn't seem lemony to me contrary to the description from the magazine but it smells more of a passion fruit scent.

Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm
Full size size 0.20oz $12
Product Description
A clear lip balm.
What I think so far...
I have a gazillion lip balms already so I will skip using this one and might give it away to a friend. 

Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer
Sample Size 0.2oz $11.25
Product Description
An anti-aging moisturizer loaded with organic ingredients.
What I think so far...
I really cant stand the smell of this moisturizer it doesnt smell a little like plastic it smells a LOT like plastic to me. I know this is organic that maybe why it smells that awful but am not willing to try this sorry.

Benefit Rollerlash Mascara
Sample size 0.1oz $8
Product Description
A mascara the lengthens, curls and volumizes.
What I think so far...
I am really loving this mascara so far you I find that for me I still need to curl my lashes with an eyelash curler but when I apply this onto my lashes it lifts up the curl more and gives length and a little bit of volume to my lash. I tried putting they're real mascara after this and it gave my lashes more volume and length which I really love so its a must try of you have both mascaras on hand.

In the picture below the top one is my lash with just curling it with an eyelash curler the middle one is when I apply the rollerlash and the bottom one is when I put they're real mascara over the rollerlash mascara. I only used one coat for each mascara on my lashes.

Cargo Essential Lip gloss in Prague
Full size 2.5ml $16
Product Description
A sheer, moisturizing lip gloss. The color is sheer and feels creamy, thanks to moisturizing jojoba-seed oil and vitamin E. About half of the shades have shimmer, but the rest creat only the slightest shine.
What I think so far...
The shade on the picture doesn't seem too sheer but when you spread it on the lips it gives a sheer color. Thank goodness that the one I got is a berry colored one because some bloggers I saw they got nude color ones which not really appealed to me. The lip gloss feels creamy to the lips but not sticky which I liked that's why some times I am put off by some lip gloss is because they have a sticky uncomfortable feeling this one doesn't have so YEY!

The total value of the box is around $56.25 which is pretty impressive and I really enjoyed the most of the contents of the box. I am impressed also that this arrives really early during the month so I had plenty of time to review the contents before posting my reviews. I think I will give this subscription some more chance and see if I really love the service to continue it but so far am really loving the box contents this month.

If your interested to subscribe you can it here. And if your a new subscriber like me I think you can use the code 5FORYOU for $5 off your first box.
