This review is on the Red Carpet Beauty Box, which was sent out to select subscribers as a simple "Thank you", free of charge. I love this box. I love that it was an unexpected surprise. That's my kind of thank you!
This box was packed and I love that so many items were included. This is so nice for a free unexpected delivery
This curation was delivered in the same box the normal monthly Allure shows up in. It also included an info card just like normal months.
This box was clearly sponsored by Covergirl, as many of the items are from this brand. A coupon was also included. 
Covergirl Plumpify Mascara in Very Black – FULL SIZE! Value $9. I can't wait to try this stuff. I am pretty loyal to my current mascara brand, but I really wanted to try this.
Covergirl Trublend Face Primer Combo Skin – FULL SIZE! Value $8.50. I have plenty of primers, so I doubt I'll get around to using this.
Covergirl Colorlicious Oh Sugar Balm in Caramel – FULL SIZE! Value $5.50. Some of the other colors were delivered, and I wish I had gotten more of a red. I don't see me wearing this color.
Covergirl Intensify Me Liquid Eyeliner  – FULL SIZE! Value $7. I do not wear black eyeliner, so this will automatically be gifted.  
Wella Professionals Oil Reflections Smoothing Oil – 1 oz Value $11.80. I love hair oils, but I do have a brand I am currently using. Use it to condition, style, or finish for results that you can see, touch, and sense.
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence – 1 oz Value $39.60. I love this brand and I love face masks. I've already used this and the results were great. My face definitely felt hydrated.
SK-II Facial Treatment Mask – Value $17. This is supposed to be "miracle water" for the skin. Don't use a cotton ball, sprinkle onto the palms of your hands and press gently onto your face.
I loved the curation of this box. I'm especially pleased that there were two SK-II products included. This box has an approximate value of $98.40. I'm pretty happy I re-signed up for Allure this year.
