Wantable Box - May 2014

Wantable time! This is an American subscription box that sends 4-5 full size makeup products a month. You get to choose your makeup preferences so you are more inclined to get products and shades you love, and you will never get products you dislike.

This box isn't cheap - it costs $36 (with an additional $9 shipping to Australia = total $45). Since subscribing and unsubscribing is so easy to do (it's literally a click of a button), if you just want a one off box you can subscribe when you feel like receiving a box and then unsubscribe after you get the box.

I am cutting down on subscription box spending, but I mainly signed up to Wantable this month because there was a 20% off discount code that was emailed out, and also because May is my birthday month so I thought this was a nice way of giving myself a present :P

If you are interested in checking out more about this box, you can visit the Wantable website. You can also check out my first Wantable post for more details about how Wantable works. 

I also did an opening video that you can check out below!

I received four products this month: a nail polish, a lipstick, a cream blush and a concealer. I am not familiar with any of these brands, so this is a great way to test out brands that you may not have tried before.

ncLA Nail Lacquer in I Only Fly Private - retails for $16: This is a nice peachy coral nail polish shade. This looks more orange in the bottle but looks more coral on the nails (see my instagram photo below, where I used this as a base). This is quite a thin nail polish and needed 3 coats to get a completely opaque finish.

Three Custom Color Simply Beautiful Creme to Powder Blush - retails $22: This looks like it only comes in this one shade. This is a dark brick coral shade, I can imagine this shade looking great on everyones skin tone because it looks like a natural flush shade. If you are pale the you can apply this very lightly, but if you have darker toned skin you can build it up. This does have a lovely cream to powder finish. See swatch below.

Liptini Beauty Straight Up Color Lipstick in Pink Champagne - retails for $18: This is a really pretty warm toned pink shade that has fine gold shimmer. I usually don't like shimmery lipstick, but this looks quite nice on the lips and provides a sheen rather than a sparkle. The packaging is quite cheap feeling, but the lipstick is quite good quality and it smells the same as a MAC lipsticks. See swatch below.

Glam Natural Concealer in Ivory 2 - retails for $20: I was very excited to get a concealer, especially since it is in my shade... woooo! This is a super thick and creamy concealer and works well under the eyes and on blemishes. This is so pigmented that a little goes a long way and this is definitely the most exciting product in this months box! See swatch below

So that's it! I will no doubt get use out of everything in this box - the most exciting is the concealer and the least exciting is the nail polish. The value of this box is just shy of $80 (US prices), so it's good value if you are going to love all of the products in the box. I recommend that if you do sign up, to be picky with your preferences, because you want to make sure you get products you will use. You can always change your preferences between boxes.

  3. I've been wanting to try Wantable. I really want their makeup box and their intimates box. I don't think I would use the accessories. They do cost a lot but at least you get full sizes and not just samples. I love the nail polish especially how you added the peach colored glitter over it. The lipstick and concealer look absolutely lovely.
