Wantable Box | May 2013 Makeup Edition featuring Lara Eurdolian

As many of you have seen, there’s a new beauty box player on the block! Wantable is the latest American beauty box shipping to Canada and promises all full sized products. With Wantable, there are two options: makeup and jewellery. I prefer not have jewellery as I find it to be extremely personal and I tend to have very specific taste. Each Wantable box is $40 or $36 with a monthly subscription. Canadians do pay an extra fee for shipping and duty which ended up being around $9 for me.

What I love most about Wantable is the customization factor. I am now sick of receiving mascaras or neutral-coloured polishes so when I filled out the extremely detailed makeup profile, I explicitly stated NONE OF THAT and I am now guaranteed to never see those products in my Wantable box! I was VERY pleased with my first Wantable box as well as the customer service!

Manna Kadar | Transfix Eyeliner DSC_0066

Transform any of your eye shadows into a smudge proof liquid liner. Simply dip Transfix into any eye shadow and rim your eyes for the perfect eyeliner.

Thoughts: I bought a product just like this from elf a few years ago because it seemed interesting, but I never got around to using it. Perhaps, I’ll give it another try?

Price: $19.00

Rainbow Honey | Hoof WrassleDSC_0067

A shimmery copper orange base studded with gold, copper and orange hex and square glitter and sprinkling of iridescent and holographic glitters - this polish loves to sparkle in the sun. Designed and made in the United States, always free of formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate and with ingredients that have never been tested on animals.

Thoughts: Eeeeeek! I love Rainbow Honey! I already have this colour so it will have to go to a good home, but this is an awesome sparkly orange polish that will surely find a good home! Rainbow Honey also has a new amazing collection too called “199X” which I have just ordered and cannot wait to wear!

Price: $10.00

FACE Stockholm | Blush in WillingDSC_0068

Our blush adds contour to your face and instantly casts a naturally flushed, healthy glow.

Thoughts: This was a brand that I was looking forward to trying out! I love the packaging for this blush, it’s so shiny and sleek and has a little mirror too. The colour is a shimmery golden pink and looks very pretty to wear.

Price: $20.00

Besame Cosmetics | Sweetheart Balm in Sweet RoseDSC_0070

My Sweetheart Balm is a luminous lip moisturizing balm with a hint of colour that gives you an elegant, long lasting finish. This formula also deeply moisturizes and conditions while fortifying with antioxidant vitamins C and E. It is highly emollient and protective as it drenches the lips with exceptional comfort and hydration in sheer, shiny pops of colour.

Thoughts: Mmmm, this lip balm smells creamy and sweet and has the cutest packaging! I’ve never heard of this brand, but I can’t wait to use it!

Price: $18.00

MiA BelleZZa | Summer Love Eye Crayon in ArgentoDSC_0071

DSC_0073

Beautiful shadow crayons for easy application of rich creamy colour in a single sweep. With skin soothing squalene, vitamins C & E your lids will be moisturized while providing antioxidant protection.

Thoughts: I have a love affair with chubby eye pencils and I was not expecting shimmer out this colour when I swatched it! It actually matches the blush quite well and has just the right amount of shimmer.

Price: $17.99

Frownies | Eye GelsDSC_0074

Anti-wrinkle treatment for puffy bags under the eyes contains powerful anti-oxidants that help protect your skin. With one 30 minute anti-aging treatment 100% of women testing Frownies eye gels saw a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and dark circles. The weight of the anti-wrinkle patch smooths the under eye area and protects the integrity of the acid mantle and skin. Frownies Eye Gels promote beauty and provide antioxidants to fight free radical damage. Natural ingredients help improve the appearance of the skin.

Thoughts: I love face masks, lip masks and eye masks!!! Eye masks are always so expensive especially ones like these so receiving these as a bonus item was amazing! I cannot wait to use them and look super cool like the model! I don’t know if they really work, but I love masks because they just feel so nice on the skin. What I love about these Frownies is that they eye gels are reusable! This one set can be used up to 4 times and according to the website, the eye gels can be rehydrated as many times as needed before the eye gels actually start to dissolve! Cool!

Price: 3 sets/$29.95

I received: 1 set/$9.98

Total Value of May Wantable Box: $94.97

Not bad for a $36 box even with shipping and duty! This is one of the more expensive boxes so there might be months where I will be skipping, but overall I really loved all of the products in this box mainly because I decided what went inside! I am excited to see what lies ahead for Wantable and whether they will survive the Canadian beauty box market!

    1. LOL, I was subbed to ALL of them! In a way having Glymm and Glossybox go under freed up money for Wantable!
