When it comes to beauty, I want to be as involved as possible. I am super comfortable going out sans makeup and do it frequently. Thanks to great skincare and self confidence, I feel fine. However, I love getting dolled up when I have the time. It is so much fun. Makeup is an art form, and I love the outlet. More than anything, I love experimenting and playing with it all. So, when Allure invited me to be a Beauty Enthusiast. How could I say no?
Allure Beauty Enthusiasts get insider access to exclusive offers. Yes, please. As I am sure you’ve noticed if you’ve peeked at my site, I love offers, deals, and all things beautiful for a great deal. Some enthusiasts get invited to VIP events. I am waiting on a nice invite, so I can be included in this one. My guess is Enthusiasts in bigger cities probably see a little more action on this front. Having a voice is an awesome part about being an Enthusiast. You get a chance to weigh in on topics that matter to you in the form of surveys. Only one has been too long causing me to ditch it. The rest have been okay. If you make it through a survey, you will usually be entered to win a prize. If I ever win one, I will report back, of course.
I’ve only been an Enthusiast for a few weeks. There is no chance for me to get a referral credit or anything in the form of compensation for telling you about this. I am sharing, because having a voice while possibly winning prizes and sampling free products seems pretty cool to me. If you feel like I do, this program may be for you. It barely takes any of my time, so I will be perfectly fine if I never win a prize, sample anything or get invited to an event, although I hope for all three.
Active Enthusiasts will at times get the chance to sample products (like Influenster does, but on a smaller scale). If you have not already read about all of the completely free, not GWP free, stuff you can get as an Influenster, read about that here. Unlike Influenster, it seems like only deluxe samples of one item at a time are given. That is still pretty neat though, because I always like getting my hands on samples, especially when they’re new to the market and I get to try them before everyone else. That’s the beauty product lover in me, who loves advance access.
Currently, they have two open sweepstakes that are only available to Enthusiasts. The first is this Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair promotion. Ten lucky winners will win the full sized product. This remains open until 02/20/15, so you can still enter if you join soon. The second is a $100 gift card from Belk. Three lucky winners will get a gift card. This promotion stays open until 03/01/15.
If this brief (I was actually kind of brief) synopsis intrigues you, find out more about the program. See all Allure Beauty Enthusiasts articles. View my main page for the guide map to the site and deeper deal exploration.
I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.
