Have you heard of Wantable? Of course you have. Lisa and I talk about it all the time. We are Wantable fiends. Lisa has become the Wantable Accessory fiend while I remain the Cosmetic Box fiend. We have our readers to thank for a lot of that because you’ve used our affiliate link to help us earn credits toward a box to review – like this April Cosmetic Subscription box.
You are going to have to forgive me a little or at least be prepared for me to gush. Yes I’m going to gush. There’s a gush-worthy item in this delightful box and I can’t stop myself.
To give a quick recap – you fill out a very comprehensive profile that Wantable keeps improving upon. You pay either $40 for a one time box or $36 for a subscription that you can cancel at any time. If you get a box that you don’t like, you can return it for a refund. So if I like nude lips and bright polish I’m not going to get a flaming red lipstick and a nude polish. Your box will always be worth at least double and sometimes a lot more than you’ve paid.
April’s box had some great products. From my “love” list is a Cailyn Cosmetics eyeliner. I’ve reviewed lots of Cailyn eyeliners but I’ve never had a regular pencil from them so this is a first. Not my favorite item in the box but something I’ll get a lot of use out of. ($7)
The rest of the items are from my “like” list but they are more loves than likes! Billion Dollar Brows Hint of Tint Taupe brow gel is one of the few BDB products I haven’t tried so I was happy to have this in my box. It’s great for the many days I’m rushing but need something on my brows without having to be precise. It has a mascara wand to combine color and hold. The more you use, the darker it becomes. It’s also good to have to hold other brow products in place like a cream color. ($18)
La Bella Donna Mineral Light Lip Color in Shell is a beautiful lipstick that is conditioning while being rich and creamy ($24.50). Shell is the color of my mother’s lips. I looked at it and instantly felt my mom. At the moment my mom is in a nursing center but the minute she is up to putting on makeup again, this will be hers. It’s a beautiful shade that I’m sure would be fine on me but it’s screaming Mom to me and I know it will look great on her. Plus who doesn’t want a new lipstick to feel better?
Now for my gush, I hope you are ready. When I opened the Wantable box and saw a box from GlamNatural I was really happy. When I saw the words CREAM BLUSH I did a happy dance. You know I love cream blush and I’ve only had the opportunity to try very small samples of GlamNatural Cream Blush before. I had ordered a sample kit from the company and I loved the blush but I didn’t have the exact right shade since it was too light. Well, gush gush, Wantable sent me Glam Natural Cream Blush in You Make Me Blush, and it does. I mean it does make me blush and beautifully so.
Let’s start with this luxurious packaging. Open the box and you’ll see a black velvet pouch with the blush contained in a golden bottle that pumps out what you need.
You don’t need this much because it’s so richly textured. The color of Make Me Blush gives a beautiful, healthy glow. It’s super easy to blend since it’s really a liquid. It’s very satiny. My advice is to pump out a very small amount and build it up if you want. The amount above is too much for both cheeks.
I’m in love with this cream blush ($32) and I’m thrilled that Wantable included it my April 2014 box. While they didn’t know that I’d love it, someone has very good taste to put this brand and this product in the box.
Other brands in other boxes this month were Chella (a tool kit that I’d have also gushed about), BelleZZa eyeshadow, ‘Tini Beauty lips and more. No matter which brands you’d end up with, you’d surely love them. And if not then have no fear and return the box.
I look so forward to my Wantable boxes coming. I am going to do a little switching on my profile to see what changes will do – just for the fun of it since I can always change back. I hope you’ll use our affiliate link if you do decide to subscribe. And I hope if you subscribe you’ll find things to GUSH about too. — Marcia
