Anyone have this brush? I think I saw it come out in a different sub box last year ... maybe popsugar? ... I am excited to get it and try it. I don't know if it is great but I really want anything with blue lotus in the name. It sounds luxurious. I did get a Rosemary mist from a box last year. I don't mind getting another though because I love face mist sprays.

Yep PopSugar sent two of them actually a full size and a mini.

I gave away my full size but I love my mini one and I am excited for this one. Now I can put my mini in my gym bag and leave this one at home.

I'm 50/50 on the box. Love the makeup don't care about the skin care this time around.

For the moment my card is not charged which is weird. They like to charge at the end of the previous month.

I am ok with the box, nothing super exciting but I hope they ship on time.

I almost bought a wet brush a few weeks ago and I'm so glad I didn't now!  Overall, I'm excited about this box - it is a lot of skincare, but I'm okay with that.  I love the idea of a setting mist with SPF!

No shipping notice, but if you got the video for "inside the box" she says that some people will get the Mally highlighter and others will get other products. Also looks like they added a shampoo and conditioner. Maybe a problem with not having enough of the Mally so they're shipping late this month.

I got mine today. It's a good box, and I got everything in spoiler pictured above plus Garnier shampoo and conditioner, which I won't use those anyway. Unusual to have 8 items.

My box arrived this morning - I got most of what was in the spoiler above, but instead of the Mally Eye Brightener, I got a Pixi Glow Tonic (which I love, so that's a nice surprise!).  I also got a Garnier Shampoo and Conditioner, which I may/may not use - I need to look at the ingredients :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />  

Slightly off-topic, but what's with the packaging on those new Garnier products?  It's kind of a retro/70s-80s throwback I think?  I just don't like it - it looks cheap to me  :wassatt:

The Garnier Whole Blends packaging looks like they're trying to compete with the Tio Nacho line. It came out around the same time the Tio Nacho commercials starting airing here.

My box came today. Instead of the Mally brightener, I got the Pixi glycolic toner, too. The brightener was one thing I was actually kind of excited to try, so I was a little bummed it wasn't in the box. But the eyeliner is a perfect color for me and I plan to use it until it's a nub. The other stuff I'll use. My kid likes to steal my little face lotions, so the PurLisse will get some good use once she runs out of the La Mer from last month.

Quick update;

So the Pixi Glow Tonic looks like it's been sitting around for a while. The coupon attached to it expired November 2015. I had to google how to sharpen the eyeliner, because it looks like it should be self sharpening, but apparently you're supposed to use a regular sharpener on it.

Well, like last time my shipping notice is just a pre-shipment notification. The box is still sitting in their warehouse. 

Looks like the whole process with the early shipment which I liked so much about Allure is in the past. 

If I get the box this coming week, it will be a miracle :D /emoticons/biggrin@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

It is a bit upsetting not to get Mally brightener as I was looking forward to trying it and I am sure I will like it. But oh, well

I am pretty sure the glow tonics are leftover from last year's box that sent it out- I think Oct or Nov? I am hoping for the Mally and Burberry because I have already received the glow tonic and the Elf brush in previous boxes--- so we will see. Plus the Elf brush is a lame replacement for these more expensive products.

Mine was delivered today.  Can't wait to see what product I got.  But from the looks that is being delivered right now it will be the Pixie Tonic, if so, that will go in the swap pile.  All other items look really useful this month, most excited about the brush and at least the eyeliner is not black.

I will update tonight if I got the Burberry or Mally.

I got my box today, no tracking email. This is becoming a trend for Allure.

I love the wet brush. I'm very excited for this brush since my old one is getting pretty ratty and worn out.  

As for the rest of the box. MEH! I already have tried most of these items, except the cargo eyeliner.  My eyeliner was Pebble beach, a brown. Brown liners are a nice change of pace, but it'll go in my glossybox sized box of eyeliners waiting to be used.  

I know I've already received the Burberry highlighter from Allure or Sample Society in the past. I'm pretty sure I have the purlisse in my skin care stash and I have the eye serum an setting mist already. I don't mind dupes but I like it when there is more new stuff to try than repeats in my boxes.

OH well, more swapping goodies for the circular swap box.
