Attention all beauty-obsessed brides-to-be: we have big news! BRIDES has teamed up with Allure to create the ultimate, limited edition, Bridal Beauty Box! We know, talk about a match made in heaven. If you don't already know what the Allure Beauty Box is, we'll break it down for you — trust us, it's everything.
And our editors are just as obsessed with the beloved products in the BRIDES Beauty Box as you'll be. We took everything from mascara, to cleansing oil, nail polish, and even fragrance for a test ride to give our editors' real unbiased reviews of what you'll get inside your monthly subscription.
1. Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Concentrate, $78
"Trust me, you need this eye cream after a night out of dancing for your bachelorette party. It'll turn into a trusty friend as you start to see those fine lines appear."
2. DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, $28
"I'm always searching for a good cleansing oil that I can just throw in my bag for travel and the gym. This removed all my makeup without over drying my skin."
3. Pur-lisse Blue Lotus + White Tea Treatment Sheet Mask, $8
"My skin was super radiant and glowing after leaving this intensely moisturizing mask on my face for 20 minutes. It felt like I went to the spa — without dropping all the money!"
4. Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, $36
"I mean, this is a classic for a reason. It creates a perfect sheer silky layer that'll help keep your makeup on all night long."
5. Mally Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Liner in Black Navy, $18
"The Mally Evercolor Starlight waterproof liner pencil goes on like butter. I can go from casual office look to smoky eye in just seconds — I love it!"
6. Rimmel London Wonder'Lash Waterproof Mascara, $7.99
"Not a clump in sight! This is my new go-to mascara."
7. Kaplan MD Lip 20 Gloss in Rosewood, $30
"I'm totally obsessed with the minty flavor of this sparkly lip gloss. It was so unexpected!"
8. Lauren B. Dual Base/Top Coat, $22
"I'm a fanatic about doing my own nails and this base/top coat combo made it really easy. Not to mention it's free of all things toxic!"
9. Lauren B. Nail Polish in Sunset Tower, $18
"I loved this color, perfect for a bridal shower, I would actually have loved to use this on my wedding day."
10. Aerin Matchbox Gift Set, $20
"The mini perfume samplers from Aerin all smelled SO good, but my favorite would have to be Waterlily Sun. It's fresh and floral scent would be lovely for any summer bride."

The Allure Beauty Box is the only monthly subscription box that's curated by magazine editors, and tested by experts. In each box, you'll find at least six deluxe sized (no single use foil packets here!), luxury samples for only $15 a month, along with a detailed "mini mag" that explains what each product is, and why Allure editors love them. But of course, our collab takes it a few steps further...
In true BRIDES fashion, the Brides x Allure Beauty Box is totally tailored with your big day in mind. The white box is adorned with gold foil letters, so it can be customized with your new Mrs. initials, or *gift idea* your bridesmaids'! Filled with a mix of 10 deluxe and full sized products, this bridal survival kit has you covered from the moment you wake up, all the way through your last dance!
