Well it doesn’t seem that long ago I was excited about my February Wantable Makeup Box, and now my March one is here already! 🙂 If you haven’t heard of Wantable, they are a US subscription box company that have just started shipping to the UK, offering makeup, accessories and intimates (undies). You can read all about them in my previous Makeup and Accessories box posts 🙂
So here is my March box! As always, a lovely message was waiting for me when I opened it up.
My March box contains a deep red lipstick, a neutral taupe eyeshadow, a foundation brush, liquid highlighter, and a primer sample. On first glance I’m really happy with this selection!
First up is the lipstick – how gorgeous is this colour!? The outer casing also reminds me of a silver version of my Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick! It instantly gives the impression of a luxury product. It’s very high quality, and looks and feels expensive.
The colour is a deep burgundy red. It’s an intense classic red shade that will suit most people. The formula feels creamy and is very richly pigmented. Unfortunately I can’t try this on my lips at the moment as I’ve just been to the emergency dentist and my mouth is numb! I’ll update you on the application and longevity at a later date.
La Bella Donna Mineral Light Lip Colour in Mindful Red. Rich, creamy with a satiny texture and lush shine describes this makeup artists’ favourite. Ceramide 2 nourishes and conditions the lips long after the appearance of colour disappears. La Bella Donna’s mineral pigments are long-lasting and create lips that are very luminous when viewed from different angles of light. $24.50
Next is the eyeshadow. This is the same brand as the eyeshadow from my February box which I loved, so I had high hopes for this as soon as I saw it! The colour is a lovely light warm beige taupe, which would work great as a base. It’s the same amazing texture as my previous eyeshadow, it’s so finely milled and soft it almost feels buttery! I’ve worn this for a day and I’m very happy with it.
(PI_) Beauty With a Wink Eyeshadow in Serenity. These eyeshadows come in several beautiful shades rich in pigment ranging from soft neutrals to velvety shimmers to eye popping fashion colours. $18.00
Next is the brush, which I’ll be honest is not overly exciting to look at. But when I touched it I was very surprised at how soft and firm yet flexible the bristles were. I would definitely put this on a par with my MAC brushes. I looked on the Michael Marcus site for some more info, and found the value is actually $38 rather than $20 which Wantable have valued it at!
Michael Marcus Prime Foundation Brush $20.00
Next up is the highlighter. I loved the colour of this as soon as I saw it. It’s a lovely warm golden tone, kind of like if you mixed gold with rose gold.
The applicator is like a lipgloss wand.
This highlighter is just gorgeous! You can wear it quite sheer, or build up the colour as much as you want. This will definitely be a staple in my makeup bag this summer!
Girlaktik Beauty Face Glimmer in 14k. We all love radiant looking skin. Apply the face glimmer on your upper cheekbones, a little on your nose, your forehead and on the cupids bow of your lips for a natural looking glow and faintly glimmering radiance. $20.00
And lastly is a nice little freebie – Sorme Fresh Start Anti Aging Under Foundation Makeup Enhancer (what a mouthful!) So this appears to be a primer, and it’s the same make as the fabulous blush / bronzer due from my last box. Wantable didn’t provide any info about this sample so I checked out the Sorme site –
This light, fast-drying formula instantly evens out skin discolourations, smoothes skin texture, and fills in fine lines and wrinkles so that makeup goes on evenly and lasts far longer without touch ups. A powerful blotting ingredient holds up to 10 times its weight in oils for a shine-free, poreless finish. Super antioxidants of Green Tea, Grape Seed Extract, and Pomegranate help repair free radical damage. Hyaluronic Acid keeps skin hydrated without oils.
This sounds pretty awesome, I haven’t tried it yet but will let you know when I do!
So overall again I’m very impressed with my box. This little lot of full sized products adds up to a value of $82.50 (£49.67) which is a complete bargain! This is definitely my favourite box so far 🙂
If you’re interested in signing up to Wantable I’d highly recommend it!
I hope you enjoyed my review xxx
