This is the very first box from Beauty Bar's Sample Society with Allure. I am really impressed with this subscription service. The value was fantastic; my box was worth $58.71 - which is pretty good!
The shipping was super fast too. My box shipped on the 7th and I received it the very next day, which I loved! Fastest shipping so far from a sample program. The only bad thing is there is no makeup samples, which was disappointing. Hopefully next month they'll include a makeup item - like a gloss or shadow.

- MY THOUGHTS: I was happy to see a full sized product in the very first box! The value of this pen alone is worth more than what I paid for the entire box. I look forward to trying it out.

- SIZE I RECEIVED: 0.14 oz (full sized item)
