I’m really excited to tell you about my first Wantable Makeup Box! I tried the Accessories Box last month which was awesome, so I thought this month I’d check out their Makeup Box and I wasn’t disappointed!
It’s so nice to be greeted with ‘Hello, Beautiful’ when I open the box!
Inside was a great range of full sized makeup items, on first glance I was really impressed!
How gorgeous is this lot! I have a blush & bronzer duo, a teal eyeliner pen, brown eyeshadow, clear eyelash treatment and a pink lip crayon.
So first up we have the Sorme Mineral Botanicals Blush / Bronzer Duo in Sunshine ($28.00)
‘This luxurious, 70% natural duo gives you fresh, summery radiance with healthy, natural minerals, vitamin C and E, plus antioxidant pomegranate and rooibos extracts help treat your skin and defend against ageing free radicals’
Good points – I’m not keen on shimmer finishes for blush or bronzer so I’m glad these are matte. The powder is fine and easily blendable.
Not so good points – Only that I would have preferred the pans to be a bit larger.
This is what it looks like on. I’m actually really impressed with the colours! My fair skin tone means blush and bronzer can be a bit of a minefield, but these colours looked really natural and you can easily build them up if you want to.
Next up is th PI_ Beauty With a Wink Eyeshadow in Skinny Latte ($18.00)
‘These eyeshadows come in several beautiful shades rich in pigment ranging from soft naturals to velvety shimmers to eye-popping fashion colours’
Good points – I swatched this by sticking my finger in it (I love sticking my fingers in makeup, does anybody else do that?) and I was instantly surprised by how velvety soft the texture was. The depth of colour is fantastic and it’s easily blendable. One of the best eyeshadows I’ve tried.
Not so good points – None.
Golden Rose Perfect Lash Vitamin Transparent ($10.99)
‘This nourishing formula gives your lashes a natural look and brightness. It nourishes and protects the lashes with vitamins A and E and provitamin B5.’
Good points – I’ve never tried a lash treatment before, so I’m glad this was in the box as it’s not something I would normally buy.
Not so good points – There are tiny little coloured balls in the tube, which look pretty but but I wasn’t sure how they would look on my lashes! They didn’t seem to come off the brush though so there wasn’t a problem.
LAQA & Co Fat Lip Pencil in Wolfman ($18.00)
‘Ditch the lip balm, liner and gloss, with this all in one Fat Lip Pencil. The smooth, utter texture coats lips in stunning glossy colour and comes in a handy jumbo pencil that needs no sharpener.’
Good points – Pretty, subtle colour. Minty scent and smooth texture.
Not so good points – None.
Be A Bombshell Eyeliner in Teal ($14.00)
‘Our long lasting water resistant formula lasts from AM to PM. Use like a marker, drawing with the tip closest to your lash line for precise definition.’
Good points – The colour is amazing!! It’s a true brigt teal, and you can build up the colour just like a felt tip pen on paper. The nib of the pen has a fine tip so you can draw a very thin line if you want to. I wore this for a whole day and evening without any smudging.
Not so good points – I would have preferred if the tip was a bit more flexible, otherwise a really great product.
I’m wearing the eyeliner and eyeshadow on the above pic 🙂
Overall I’m really happy with my box, the value totalling $88.99 (£53.47) and the box costs $36.00 (£21.63) One of the most exciting things about the Wantable makeup box for me is because they are based in the US, I haven’t heard of any of these brands before, so I really didn’t know what to expect, it was a compelete surprise!
