Wantable August Makeup Box | Review

Wantable August Makeup Box | Review


Hi Guys!

It’s time again for another Wantable box! This month’s box looks great with four items including a rather awesome looking eyeshadow, under eye brightener, eyeliner and mascara. If you’re new to Wantable, you can check out all the deets and info in my very first post here.


First up is the Elizabeth Mott – It’s so Big! Mascara ($19.99)

It’s So Big! Volumizing Mascara is a unique formula that lengthens and curls your lashes without smudging. Maintains mega volume for the whole day with easy removal.The secret weapon is the hourglass brush shape, wit its long and short bristle pattern to deliver just the right amount of mascara to each lash (like magic!) Watch your lashes grow bigger with each layer.

Good points – Erm, none.

Not so good points – Sorry to start with a downer but unfortunately this is probably the worst mascara I’ve ever tried. The formula felt kind of tarry and stringy, it took many strokes just to get one layer of mascara, it didn’t lengthen at all, only slightly thickened and it just really wasn’t anything special at all.



Next is the Vincent Longo – PearlX Eyeshadow in Etherea ($25.00)

This unique, out-of-this-world formula opens new vistas in eye makeup. Pearl X eyeshadows spread cool to warm tones throughout a sophisticated multi-textured product, to create shades of matte and shine that effortlessly blend and shift as you apply. The galactic multi-textures of matte and pearl encourage a personalized, creative application style.

Good points – Well firstly just look at it! This eyeshadow it stunning! It reminds me of another eyeshadow that I can’t just put my finger on, possibly MAC?? I love the different nuances of colour, and I really had no idea what to expect from the swatch! The shadow itself is soft and feels luxurious, and it comes out as a lovely warm golden bronze – I love it!

Not so good points – None!



Tarina Tarantino – Eye Dream Hyperlight Eye Brightener ($22.00)

This universal shade brightener instantly reduces the appearance of dark circles and diminishes discolourations around the eye area to create a radiant youthful glow in one swift swipe! This blendable, crease-free formulation was designed to be applied under or over your concealer and foundation making it the quick fix for weary mornings or long days to keep you looking bright eyed and refreshed at all times!

Good points – The packaging is gorgeous, as with all Tarina Tarantino products. This handy little product conveniently hides dark circles whilst illuminating and making your complexion suddenly brighter. I found this wasn’t the best as a concealer, but on top of my normal concealer this worked wonderfully to make my complexion brighter.

Not so good points – Apart from the fact that I need a stronger concealer, this is a fab product.



Glam Natural – Eyeliner Pencil in Black Opal

Use GlamNatural Mineral Eye Pencils to line, define, and dramatize. These BodySafe pencils will safely add dimension and definition to the eyes without compromising your health. Classic blackest black.

Good points – Hmm ok well this is a pretty bog standard black eyeliner pencil, it’s not the blackest black, nor the softest formula, but I have seen worse. This is average at best.

Not so good points – See above.

So overall this box has been a bit of a mixed one, I’ve got a couple of great products and a couple of not so great ones here. I updated my settings last month to include mascaras and makeup tools, which were previously excluded from my options. I’m kind of regretting adding mascaras now! Fingers crossed next month’s box will be better! 🙂
