Its been several years since i got an allure beauty box.

 Here is a peek inside the box.

 FRESH BLACK TEA AGE DELAY EYE CONCENTRATE--Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Concentrate is a power nap for your eyes, de-puffing and reducing the appearance of dark circles, while moisturizing and visibly firming the eye area. Great for day and night, the innovative cooling treatment also illuminates and revives tired eyes. A proprietary black tea complex proven to help inhibit damaging free radicals and improve elasticity is further optimized by antioxidant-rich noni fruit juice, known to retain and increase moisture and protect the skin.

 DHC DEEP CLEANSING OIL-- is a  make-up remover that  completely dissolves all traces of dirt and cosmetics – even waterproof mascara and eyeliner – while nourishing your complexion with antioxidant-rich olive oil. Using dry hands, massage it onto your dry face, and it immediately goes to work. Add water and it transforms to a milky, vitamin-rich emulsion that rinses clean, leaving your skin feeling soft and nurtured; never dry or greasy.
DOUCCE FREEMATIC EYESHADOW MONO-- An intensely pigmented powder eye shadow with just the right amount of shimmer



ESTEE LAUDER SUMPTUOUS INFINITE--Stretch lashes to limitless length.
A multitude of gravity-defying fibers take lashes far beyond tips. Lashes are transformed—longer, fuller, dramatic.Innovative stretchable fibers perfectly shape, plump and extend each lash, from roots through tips and beyond. Fibers are fused onto lashes as the mascara dries, setting and locking-in length.
10-hour wear. Clump-resistant, flakeproof, smudgeproof formula. Sweat and humidity resistant.

OVERALL I LOVE THIS BOX. I CAN NOT WAIT UNTIL I GET THE DECEMBER BOX.

WEEKLY FAVORITES


 So i wanted to start a weekly favorites on my blog so that i can share with you all the products that i am loving this week.
So lets get started
IN THE PHOTO, TOP TO BOTTON LEFT TO RIGHT
DOUCCE FREEMATIC EYESHADOW IN JUDY-- I got this in the november allure beauty box. i used this on my brow bone this more and love it. It doesn't give a lot of highlight but just a touch so that it doesnt distract for your look. This shadow line is designed to be put  into a magnetic palette that you can get on their site. I have not tried this brands shadows before but i love this. This shade also looks more pigmented in the case but when you swatch it, it is  more light with some shimmer but the shimmer is not to much.

ESTEE LAUDER SUMPTUOUS INFINITE MASCARA-- I  got this in the november allure beauty box and used this on my top lashes this morning. I have not used this mascara before but i was really blown away while using this.. It does coat the lashes nicely and usually i apply two different mascaras on my top lashes but today i didn't need that with this one.

E.L.F. LIP EXFOLIATOR--- I  got this in the 12 days of beauty. I had one of these in the regular lip exfoliators and this one is  in the mint flavor and i love this. It is great to use on your lips to keep them in great shape and so they are not chapped. After using this, i applied a lip balm. This is a must have for the winter.

FRESH BLACK TEA AGE DELAY EYE CONCENTRATE--   I got this in the november allure beauty box and used this last night for the first time. It is very nice. This is a balm type of cream and it doesnt go on super thick but it works for me because i applied it over my other eye creams. I noticed that the few lines that i had under my eyes where gone.

BEAUTE BASICS BRONZE ESSENTIALS- I got this in the december boxycharm. I love the fact that you can use the different bronze shades or the gold shades or blend them all together. I used this by blending the shades together and its so beautiful. Really does give you a bronzed look.

PRETTY VULGAR LIQUID LIPSTICK--- I got this in my december boxycharm and i was excited about this one. I love the packaging and this is the perfect shade for that bronze look. The staying power of this is also a plus. I applied this in the morning at 8 and at 1 in the afternoon, it was still going strong.


These are my favorites for the week.
COMMENT BELOW AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOUR FAVORITES ARE?

DAY 3 OF THE 12 DAYS OF BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDAR

 HERE WE ARE ON DAY 3 OF THE 12 DAYS OF BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDAR. I LOVE THIS ADVENT CALENDAR. I GET NEW PRODUCTS TO TRY OUT AND HOPEFULLY DISCOVER SOMETHING NEW.
DAY 3 IS FRIZZ FIX.
I WONDER WHAT THAT IS? PERHAPS SOMETHING FOR THE HAIR
 LETS TAKE A PEEK
 TODAY I GOT THE HASK ARGAN OIL-- ' THIS MIRACLE OIL BOOSTS SHINE, HELPS REPAIR DAMAGE AND KEEPS FRIZZ UNDER CONTROL.'
I HAVE SEEN THESE SETS AT WALMART FROM THIS ONE WITH THE ARGAN OIL AND THERE IS ANOTHER ONE WITH COCONUT OIL. I AM HOPING I GET ONE FOR CHRISTMAS.
I HAVE NOT TRIED THIS BEFORE SO I AM EXCITED TO TRY THIS OIL.


 Revive and restore the look of your hair with the HASK Argan Oil collection featuring a range of products derived from the nourishing “miracle oil,” a timeless beauty secret of its native Morocco. Infused with high-absorbing, moisturizing and split-end repairing qualities, argan oil penetrates the hair shaft to leave even the most rebellious locks frizz-free, silky-soft and super glossy.Argan oil’s very unique and extremely beneficial composition makes hair soft, silky and shiny, while taming frizz and protecting strands. Virgin argan oil, used in the HASK collection, is rich in phytosterols, omega-3, omega-7 fatty acids and natural antioxidants such as vitamin E. Phytosterols impart a lustrous shine while omega-3 and omega-7 fatty acids provide softness, help mend split-ends and improve manageability. Vitamin E and other natural antioxidants treat and repair chemically or color-treated hair. 
 This lightweight, alcohol-free oil absorbs instantly to provide frizz-free shine without leaving an oily residue. Argan oil is rich in essential fatty acids and penetrates hair to restore shine and provide soft, silky results in dry, damaged hair. It’s no wonder they call argan oil the “miracle oil”!
