This month’s Wantable box arrived in record time, and I was excited to find a brand I’d never heard of before inside – Surratt Beauty. After looking into this company the products look rather good – they’re stocked in Liberty and have a high price point, so now I have high hopes and I really hope I’m not going to be disappointed!
First up is the Surratt Beauty Smokey Eye Baton in Mauve, $35.00
This is supposed to be a creamy liner with a smudger at the other end to create a smokey eye look. The liner is great but there’s no smudger! I’m not sure what happened there – the description includes mention of a smudger, as does other online descriptions but there’s definitely not one in sight!
Good points – The product has a creamy, smooth texture that’s easily blendable. I love the shade I received, Mauve. It’s a beautiful deep purple that’s easily build able and a great alternative to black.
Not so good points – There’s no smudger! Boo!
Next is another Surratt product, this is the Concealer in Fair, $50.00
Surratt’s concealer stick adheres to skin perfectly and wears beautifully for flawless, long-lasting, full coverage.
Good points – This definitely feels like a premium product, it has a matte finish that blends well and easily covered my dark circles.
Not so good points – Depending on your skin tone, this shade could be too light for you. Luckily I’m white as a ghost so it’s perfect for me, and if you’d like to try the concealer there are plenty of other shades available. Also it’s worth mentioning that the product is only a tiny 1.9g which really is super small for the $50.00 price tag.
Next is the Yourminerals Loose Eyeshadow in Lime, $22.00
Good points – I love love LOVE this shade, it’s such a beautiful pale olive green that’s super finely milled with gold sparkles. It catches the light beautifully and has a lovely soft consistency.
Not so good points – There’s nothing wrong with the actual product, but there’s nothing to stop the powder going everywhere inside the pot. There are four square holes that you tip the shadow out of and nothing to close them off so it just all comes out inside the lid. This shouldn’t be a problem as long as you’re careful when unscrewing the lid.
And finally a Vincent Longo Deluxe Blush Brush, $24.00
Good points – I’ve had some Vincent Longo brushes in previous boxes and I’m never disappointed. This is a premium synthetic brush with long flexible bristles. It’s super soft and lovely to use.
Bad points – None!
Overall this little box included products valuing a massive $131.00 (£83.11) I’m pretty sure it’s the highest value box I’ve had so far! I’m really impressed with the selection of products included and hoping to see more of Surratt Beauty in future boxes!
