Wantable July Makeup Box | Review

Wantable July Makeup Box | Review


Hi Guys!

It’s time for another Wantable box! Seriously, it seems like a box turns up every couple of weeks, not every month, where is the time going to!? Anyway this box review is actually a little late, I’ve already received the dispatch email for my August box, I can’t keep up!! In this box I received an eyeshadow palette, highlighter, lipgloss and foundation brush, and on first glance I’m very happy! So let’s look at the products…



So first up is the Tarina Tarantino Jewel Shadow Palette in Fantastical ($32)

These amazing shades feature extremely pigmented shadows to blend easily and a beautiful color payoff that stays on all day and works for any skin tone! Their compact size makes them perfect for makeup looks on the go! 

Colours include – Pearl Mauve, Beige Shimmer, Pearl Eggplant Purple, Pearl Lilac Purple, Pearl Vanilla

Good points – I love these colours! I think purples are always easy shades to wear whatever your eye colour, and the nude shimmers are gorgeous too. The shadows were easy to use and gave a fantastic pigmented finish. I’m really happy with this palette! I received a Tarina Taratino Blush Duo in a previous box that I wasn’t so impressed with so this was a pleasant surprise!

Not so good points – None!



Next up is the Three Custom Color Shimmer Cream in Afterglow ($22.50)

This is a beautiful cream highlighter with just a hint of light reflecting shimmer. The neutral colour is perfect for all skin tones to add a touch of radiant light wherever it’s applied.

Good points – I love the colour, it’s a light nude gold that would definitely look good on most skin tones. It has a very subtle finish that makes it really easy to wear, and has an almost powdery feel once applied.

Not so good points – None!



Next is the Eddie Funkhouser Hyperreal Hydrating Lip Gloss in Publicity Stunt (10.99)

This lip gloss is a lightweight, low-tack formula that provides a brilliant, colour rich multidimensional finish to lips. Vitamins A, C & E nourish and brighten and aloe vera moisturises and soothes.

Good points – Well if you know me you’ll know I’m a big fan of purple lip products, probably the biggest 🙂 The colour is gorgeous and as soon as I saw it I was excited! This gloss is a lovely plummy purple colour with a semi sheer finish, it’s not sticky and lasted a good few hours before I needed to reapply.

Not so good points – None!


And lastly th Vincent Longo #37 Foundation Brush ($30)

The generous size and narrow head of this synthetic brush allows for the smooth and even application of liquid foundation products.

Good points – I’ve received a Vincent Longo brush in one of my previous boxes so I knew the quality would be great, and it really is! The bristles are so soft, you know when you just have to run a brush over your face? That! 🙂

Not so good points – None!

Wow! So overall this box get’s top marks from me and also has a total value of $95.49! What a bargain for only costing $36! I’m so happy with these products, Wantable continues to impress me! I’ve also actually just updated my preferences on the site to include some different products, I’m not sure if this will take place from my next box of if it will be September’s so watch this space and you’ll see! 🙂 xxx

    Hi I was wondering if you have tried many of the other boxes that are around an how you thought they compared with Wantable. Wantable does seem good but is more expensive than Birchbox which I have been getting for about three months, I have also seen Glossybox advertised have you tried that one! If you had to compare them all which would you favour. Although Birchbox only gives you small samples its not too expensive overall. I’m sure I get my moneys worth but I’m finding that I’m getting loads of things like shower gels and oils and very little essential facial skincare and cosmetics. Any cosmetic they do send are always orangey which doesn’t suit me.at all I don’t think they ask enough questions in the profile to match you up very well. If you go on all the facebook pages for these firms they all seem to have lots of people moaning about what they got and didn’t get so I’m just wondering If I’m going to find that they are all much the same.

      Hey Lovely thanks for your comment – well I have tried Glossy Box in the past and I have to say I was pretty disappointed, very small samples, just like what you get free from counters. I love Wantable because you know all the samples you receive are full sized products. You can also customise your box so you only receive the products you want. I hope that helps xx
