Subscription boxes have taken the beauty world by storm, but with so many on the market, it can be a nightmare choosing one.What drew us to Wantable is the fact that all the products are full sized which is something we look for in a subscription box. There’s nothing we hate more than receiving a small sample sized cream that would barely cover the face of a new born let alone a grown human being!
The unique site allows subscribers to take a ‘personal style quiz’ to build what we like to call a “beauty profile” of the products and shades you’d love to receive in your box and those you are not so keen on. The monthly contents of the boxes are a surprise, but this way you can avoid the disappointment of receiving something that you probably will never use.
On opening the box, we were immediately impressed by the packaging with each product packed in its own velvet draw string bag. It’s clear that the deisgn team over at Wantable have put plenty of thought into the presentation of their boxes which we can appreciate.
Now on to the goodies…
Glam Natural cream blush in Ashley, Ashley
The consistency of this blush is more like a mousse then cream, but what we love about this product is that it is quite light and true to it’s claim, it is extremely velvety on application. What we like most though is that it gives you the perfect natural, Miranda Kerr-esque blush. However we found that the product is quite difficult to build up. So if you’re a happy little Vegemite and prefer a more dramatic look, then this probably isn’t for you. As with any cream blush, this product was slightly, for lack of a better word, greasy. So if you’ve got slightly oilier skin, you might want to stay away from this product or save it for the cooler months when your skin may be drier. With that being said, we think the dewy finish gives a nice glow when placed on the apples of the cheeks.
Do excuse the mess of a hair!
La Bella Donna Mineral Light Lip Colour in Shell
The packaging of this lipstick is quite luxurious and really does reflect the product. The lipstick is extremely creamy and glides on like a dream. This is the perfect your lips but better colour which will make it a permanent fixture in our handbags!
Liberty Republic Spellbound Nail Lacquer in Talisman
If you haven’t caught on already with our glitter polish obsession, then where have you been?! The metallic polish has fast become one of our favourites. The formulation is spot on with only one coat required for an opaque finish. If this particular nail polish is anything to go by, we will definitely be hunting down some more Liberty Republic polishes to add to our collection.
Three Custom Color in Brown Sugar
Call us boring, but we’d choose neutrals over bright and wild coloured eyeshadow any day! So of course we were thrilled to get this little guy in our Wantable box. Ok, if you ask our mum she’d probably tell you that we have more than enough brown shadows to last us a life time. But in our opinion, you can’t ever have enough of them! This Three Custom Color eyeshadow is silky and extremely versatile. You can blend it into your crese, wet an angled brush for a more natural liner or even use it to fill in your eyebrows. However, like the blush it is not extremely pigmented. We haven’t tried it with a wet brush yet, so hopefully that will help to get more colour pay off.
We know this is Wantable’s March box, so we’re extremely sorry for the late review! We’ve just finished our uni exams, so we pinky promise that we’ll get our posts in order, but overall we were quite impressed by our box and the goodies that were selected for us. We think the products are very true to our ‘beauty style’ which made unboxing it that much more exciting.
