Who’s up for another round of Wantable unboxing? Only this time, we’re touching base with something we’re all familiar with: makeup!
This month’s box is all about going back to basics and simplifying your morning makeup routine. I was curious what the Wantable peeps have curated this time, especially after seeing on their site the following brands: Mirabella, Vincent Longo, Tarina Tarantino, Mica Beauty, Ofra and Three Custom Color, of which 3 of these brands I’ve encountered before, thanks to the world of beauty boxes, also.
Although you don’t get to see right away the brands that will be featured each month,Wantable offers an option of one-time purchase for $40, alternatively, if you want to save $4, you’re better off setting up a monthly subscription ($36) and just skip or cancel if you’re not so thrilled with your box later on. There’s a quiz you can indulge yourself in, which will help get your items more personalized. All Wantable subscription boxes ship for FREE*!
Once your box is shipped, you’ll get your tracking reference to keep you updated. Ahh the waiting. Especially when I can see my package being sorted at the nearby post office!
The box came with a paper guide with detailed information of the products I got plus my preferences, which states, I will most likely receive products I LOVE on the list and never the products I DISLIKE.
So let’s talk about makeup and how pretty the brushes I got!
|Tarina Tarantino Blush brush (22) (replacement)||$42|
|Ofra Liquid Blush Baby Doll (Pink)||$20|
|Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush||$10|
|Vincent Longo Lipstick SPF 15 in Debue/Coral||$23|
Total box value: $95
I did end up having one of the items replaced in this box, the Pearl Glow Primer since I couldn’t stand the smell (it smelt ‘off’ or rusty). I thought it must be my unlucky unboxing month due to a previous situation here.
On the plus side, I received an immediate response from Wantable Customer Service and was sent a replacement from the same brand Tarina Tarantino right away and guess what it is? A blush brush! Even better! I’m building up my makeup brushes collection so this is a fabulous addition.
Pink with a bow? Yes, please.
What made me eeepppp! about this box is seeing Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush! My wish has been granted by some kind-hearted beauty box genie. 😀 And I love it!
I own at least 10 (if not more) Real Techniques brushes, so does that definitely make me a fan, right??
Another product to love is Vincent Longo Lipstick in Debue especially since this has SPF 15, and it’s probably the only lipstick I have that has SPF, now that I think about it. This shade is described in my guide as coral but the more I look at it, it’s definitely nowhere near coral.
In fact, it actually reminds me so much of Maybelline The Buffs Nude Lipstick – Stormy Sahara, especially the swatches above. And if anything, it’s more on the pink-beige side, right? Nevertheless, I think this is such a gorgeous lip color and a great choice if you’re not into bold colors this season.
It applies like a dream (better than The Buffs), feels so buttery (thanks to Aloe Vera and Vitamin E in its formula), and smells like Vanilla!
Next up is Ofra’s Liquid Blush in Baby Doll, a gorgeous coral pink blush that has a cooling effect when applied! Want a quick summer flush on your cheeks? Hook up with this shade and you’ll love the result!
To sum up, I think Wantable July Makeup Box hits the spot to create a simplified makeup routine, especially if your goal this season is a more natural look. I sure am loving that approach, what about you?
