Sample Society Spoilers for July 2014

So you may or may not know that Sample Society is going through a rebranding effort right now.  I think thats part of the reason they were doing a huge unloading of old Sample Society boxes for ridiculously cheap prices.

Now, they have a new red box with Allure prominently placed on the front.  I think this is to give it a more authentic "Hey, we really know our beauty stuff" feel.  Everyone knows Allure but not everyone knows and Sample Society.

I've always had good experiences with Sample Society.  They were one of the first boxes I signed up for and they always have had great brands, products and customer service.

The Cost: $15/month.  Shipping is free.

What You Get: Five deluxe, high end beauty samples delivered to your door.

There have been a few changes.  Instead of a $15 off coupon for a $50 purchase, it is now a $10 coupon.  This doesn't bother me because I never used them anyway.  There will still be the little Allure mini-mag in the box, too.

Now for the spoilers!  I'm really, really hoping that we get all of these  items in ALL the boxes but I'm not quite sure we will.  Thanks to Iris at boxesfordays, I got the scoop on what's in the new July box!

This is straight from Allure:

"This month, the box includes a star-studded lineup of five Allure editors’ summer essentials. Like a seriously deep-conditioning Fekkai hair mask. Five minutes with this thick goop on our heads and we could not shut up about how shiny our hair looked.
You'll also find a sexy Laura Mercier highlighter, the smoothest highlighter we have ever tried. Ever. Dusted over cheekbones (and even dabbed over our lipstick) this light pink-y beige powder gives an elegant, natural-looking glow—exactly the kind you’re looking for in the summertime.
Other favorites in the box include a crisp, sexy fragrance from Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris; a metallic Butter London nail polish that looks especially badass on toes; and a juicy L'Oréal lip color that feels as moisturizing as our favorite balm."

Yeah... So I totally am signed up for this.  I want the butter London and the Laura Mercier Highlighter.  I just can't tell if we all will get these or not from the wording.

Oh, hey!  You know what I just noticed!!  That L'Oreal Lipcolor is the same one that Allure sent to me for a survey!  It is SO nice!  It's more like a highly pigmented gloss and while it has a hint of stickiness, its quite moisturizing!  I really like it.  I've been using it pretty consistently for the past four days.  It's quite glossy.  I like it!

So, in other words, go sign up if you haven't already and if you think this box looks amazing!

 Sign up for Sample Society!

    P.S. Someone on MUT called in and said that the CS rep told her that "He'd also confirmed that all members will receive the Laura Mercier highlighter". So that's one down! :D Hopefully all the other items will also be included for sure. :)

    1. OMG! Yay!!! I want that! Also... I just got my five boxes today! AAHHHH!! So much good stuff! I might hyperventilate with sample happiness!

    2. skdjflksjfls!!!!! Mine are still "out for delivery" because the UPS guy likes to come at extremely late times. =___= BUT I CAN'T WAIT TO GET THEM. (I think we got the same boxes right? XD)
