2015 Wantable April Intimates Collection

The older I get, the more I look forward to lounging. I think that’s why the Wantable.com Intimates Collection is always such a huge hit for me. Whether it’s comfy, sassy, or sexy, each month brings great reasons to take a load off and relax.

The April Intimates Collection is total comfort and sass. My collection has four items, including cozy socks, a sweet pajama tank, and a comfy, funky pajama set.

2015 Wantable April Intimates Pajama Drama Tank

1.  Pajama Drama Tank with Lace Trim (retail value $21):  Oh is this comfortable!! This tank has a double scoop neck with pretty lace trim. It’s so soft, and has an A-line design so it’s loose and flowy. I don’t just save this for nighttime, I wear it during the day too.

2015 Wantable April Intimates Happy Socks

2.  Happy Socks in Grey Disco Dot (retail value $12):  Fun fun fun! How cute are these??? I get happy just looking at these socks. They are exactly the length I like, which is because the preference choices at Wantable even include the option of sock length. I am in love.

3 and 4.  Pajama Drama Pom Pom Tank and Pant in Watercolor (retail value $36):  Ahhhh…the cuteness is almost overwhelming! This pajama set has a tank top and long pants, both trimmed with little purple pom poms. The print is an amalgamation of maps with hints of teal, pink, and purple, and the trim is purple and teal. It’s as comfortable as it is cute.  Perfection!

The overall value of this collection is $69, although it’s worth even more to me because I adore every single item. If you haven’t yet, check out the Intimates Collection at Wantable.com. It is absolutely worth it.  – Lisa

It’s still spring but summer is right around the corner, and my Wantable.com April Accessories Collection is definitely getting me in the mood for longer days and shorter nights.  My April Accessories Collection has three long necklaces and a pair of sunglasses.  I think I wear a long necklace every single day, so the variety in this box suits me.  This month’s collection features natural elements like semi-precious stones.

Marcia recently posted about her fantastic April Cosmetics Collection (read it HERE) and we both love the change in the order details.  Now, not only are the items pictured and described, there is also a retail value and a ‘your price’ value.  Very handy, because you can return a specific item and be credited that much toward your next collection.  Well played, Wantable!  It certainly works for me this month since three of my items are winners, but one is not for me.

2015 Wantable April Accessories Bess Necklace

1.  Bess Silver Necklace (retail value $14):  This is a beautiful long silver necklace with two different sized filigree discs.  They look like spider webs to me.  This is a pretty, feminine necklace that goes with so much, from a basic tee to a floaty sundress.

2015 Wantable April Accessories Alicia Sunglasses

2.  Alicia Sunglasses (retail value $14):  I have several pairs of sunglasses but nothing quite like these.  The Alicia Sunglasses are hip and fun, with a brushed painted frame and silver detailing.  The lenses are oversized and I know these will be perfect for a trip to the beach.

2015 Wantable April Accessories Bri Necklace S

3.  Bri Necklace S (retail value $19):  My second long necklace is very different, rather ethereal.  It has three rows of black beads along with a sort of blue, sort of purple crystal stone.  It has a cool bohemian vibe.  Love this with a simple black tee and jeans.

2015 Wantable April Accessories Marie Necklace

4.  Marie Necklace (retail value $26):  So this is the item that just doesn’t speak to me.  It has gorgeous details – a long double silver chain, silver etching, round ivory stone.  But the pendant is too complicated, too large, and rather clunky on me.   I can’t get it to lay right, which is in part because it hits me exactly mid-chest.  This is a great piece for someone with a broader frame and smaller bosom.

The overall value of April’s collection is $73, so Wantable continues to be of the best values available in the subscription box world.  This month I love three of the four items…and it’s still great, because I can send back the one I am not loving for a credit back on my next box.

If you’d like to start treating yourself to a nice surprise each month, here is a $5 Coupon to get you started.  Start spicing up your accessories wardrobe for warmer weather!  – Lisa

Some cosmetic fun with Wantable this month

my Wantable April 2015 Cosmetics subscription

my Wantable April 2015 Cosmetics subscription

My April Wantable Cosmetic Subscription box is so much fun this month. It’s got color products galore. It was like getting an Easter basket for a makeup fanatic, the only thing missing was chocolate. April’s box was sent for review, we include affiliate links for Wantable so we can build credits to get the boxes.

Wantable has changed the way they are doing business and it’s for the better. The first box you buy will cost you $40 but if you subscribe for future boxes it drops to $36. They also tell you the Wantable value of each item by dividing the products up to equal $40. This way you can return items you don’t want and get a credit back on your next box.

For April I received a blush, eyeshadow, lipstick and a blush brush. Almost a whole face! The total value is $81 which is double the price of the subscription so it’s definitely a value. One item for sure is being returned though so that will add to next month’s credit.

The product that dazzled me is MIRABELLA PINK BLOSSOM EYESHADOW. This is from their Wild Flower collection and it’s stunning. Not only does it have the prettiest design I’ve seen but the color is stunning. This collection has Prismatech shades that are shimmering beauties. They cost $28 each which is a lot but boy is this gorgeous. This is my favorite product for April and probably for the last few boxes too.

If this was a horse race then we’d have to have a photo finish to see if FRANKIE ROSE PINK LADIES blush ($17) came in first since this is a winner too. I’ve reviewed a Frankie Rose palette with neutral blush before so I knew that the quality was amazing. I feel so lucky to have this very cool pink blush now to add to the other lovelies. This looks scarily bright in my pictures, almost neon, but it applies so much softer and it’s easy to buff down with a brush or puff to soften it more. The finish is satiny and gorgeous.

For lips there’s a lipstick by DOUCCE. This is a new brand to me and the packaging makes it a stand out. It’s sleek, contemporary, and snaps shut so it will stay safe in your cosmetic bag. I have it in #909 TANGELO ($20). I didn’t swatch it because I’m debating whether or not to keep it. The color is beautiful so I’m very tempted. The lipstick is a Mineral Matt with SPF 10 and vitamin E. But it’s so fragranced that I’m worried I’ll wear it once and not again. I keep smelling it though because I want to own it. What to do?? I wish I didn’t have such a sensitive nose!

The last item is the one I’m returning and I’m sorry that I am. It’s a SORME BLUSH BRUSH ($16) which I was excited to see in the package but the brush is scratchy and my cheeks are too sensitive to use it. I love tools in my Wantable subscription boxes but this one just doesn’t have the quality. Instead I’ll return it for a $7.90 credit towards my future boxes.

With two absolute winners, one maybe and one return, I still made out perfectly and I’m still excited about the box. The thrill of opening a WANTABLE COSMETIC SUBSCRIPTION BOX each month hasn’t worn away even after all the years I’ve been a subscriber. You should get in on the thrill and hopefully you’ll use our affiliate link to do so.

Getting practical with the March Wantable Intimates Collection

*this post contains affiliate links*  Every month my Wantable Intimates Collection is so different from the month before…it is always a big surprise. Sometimes it’s all about sexy stuff, and sometimes it is far more on the practical side. This month’s collection is all about the practical stuff with cozy pajamas and some multi-tasking shapewear.

Wantable 2015 March Intimates PJ set1 and 2.  Spring Fling Pajama Set in Aruba Blue (retail value $32)  This comfy PJ set is from Real Underwear. The top is girly and pretty with great detail – the sleeves have a keyhole design with a bow. The v-shaped neckline is beautiful, with delicate lace trim and a bow.

Wantable 2015 March Intimates PJ top detail The matching capri-length pants are striped cotton with a string tie at the waist. The detailing at the bottom of the legs is gorgeous – just look at the lace trim. This is an extremely comfortable set that I love wearing and it’s perfect for spring temperatures.

3.  Know Me Shapewear The Shape Charmer (retail value $38) This is a multi-tasking black shapewear piece. You can use it three ways:  as a tube top, a waist cincher, or as a half slip. It does everything – slims, cinches, and smooths. I am not going to be using it as a tube top any time soon…I don’t think even shapewear can save that particular area for me! – but I can totally use the waist cinching and half slip.

Wantable 2015 March Intimates Body Slimmer

This month’s Wantable Intimates Collection isn’t going to generate much heat in the boudoir, but it is a wonderfully practical one with great items that are going to get tons of use. My collection has a retail value of $70, making it a completely justifiable monthly treat.  – Lisa

Want, want, want…Wantable March Accessories Collection

 

Wantable 2015 Accessories Collection

WOW, the Wantable Accessories Collection for March is definitely bold and beautiful! The focus is on cheeky colors and accessories that can be layered and paired with other pieces. My collection is definitely a winner with a glamorous ring, metal bracelet, sparkly headband and statement necklace.

Desiree Ring in Silver

Desiree Ring in Silver

Desiree Ring in Silver (retail value $16): Is this fun or what?? I love it. I have absolutely nothing else like this double finger ring with bold rhinestones. It’s playful and goes with everything.

Joyce Bracelet in Silver

Joyce Bracelet in Silver

Joyce Bracelet in Silver (retail value $17):  This is a stunning silver metal bracelet with a toggle closure and a metal tassel. Gorgeous on its own and perfect for layering with other bracelets or a watch.

Delaney Headband in Silver

Delaney Headband in Silver

Delany Headband in Silver (retail value $18) I adore this headband. It looks expensive and it is fantastic with darker hair. The headband has sparkly rhinestones and a stretchy band so it’s comfortable on. It is beautiful with loose, flowing hair or with a ponytail.

Abigail Necklace in Gold

Abigail Necklace in Gold

Abigail Necklace in Gold (retail value $24)  This is the only gold piece in my collection, with a long adjustable chain which is a pretty cool feature. The pairing of gold with shiny navy drop beads is more beautiful than the photo shows. The only problem I find with it is the beaded part can twist around if I am walking quickly, but it doesn’t tangle so the twisting is easily fixed.

Wantable March 2015 Accessories Collection

I think that Wantable is a great way to expand any accessories wardrobe at just $36 a month. My March collection has a retail value of $75 and I have already worn everything except the ring which will be fun when I actually go out some night!

Wantable is very customizable. It’s great how you can be specific about your preferences, yet every collection is still a wonderful surprise. I am looking forward to seeing what is in store for next month!  – Lisa

Refreshing my wardrobe with the Wantable February Intimates Collection

Wantable 2015 February Intimates Collection

Wantable 2015 February Intimates Collection

Nothing like a surprise box of ‘unmentionables’ waiting for you on the porch after a long day at work! I love surprises and the Wantable Intimates Collection I am sent for review is always the best…sometimes more for me, sometimes more for the hubby. This month was all about me. If you are thinking about ordering a Wantable subscription, click here for Valentine’s 2015 30% Off!

Firm Control Shaping Pants

Firm Control Shaping Pants

 1.  Firm Control Shaping Shorts in Black – Waist Watcher (retail value $21):  This is some pretty perfect shapewear. I like that it smooths out hips and tummy, and it also grabs thighs so it makes it comfortable to wear under dresses or under jeans. It also rides a little high so it minimizes the waist and eliminates the dreaded muffin top!

Pajama Drama Cami with lace

Pajama Drama Cami with lace

2.  Pajama Drama Cami with Lace in Navy (retail value $21):  This is a very soft and oh-so-comfy cami. The lace detail puts it on the sexy side, but the loose fit makes it wonderfully comfortable and easy to wear. The straps are also adjustable, guaranteeing an awesome fit.

MukLuk Slipper Socks...just the best!!

MukLuk Slipper Socks…just the best!!

3.  MukLuks Slipper Socks (retail value $24):  Where have these been all my life????  I am not a big fan of slippers in the winter. They keep my feet warm but then my calves are still freezing. I usually resort to socks but they don’t give the insulation from the floor that I need. MukLuks Slipper Socks are the answer. These cute thick socks have the sole (and the soul!) of a slipper. This means cozy calves, warm feet, and a happy dance.

My Wantable February Intimates Collection has a retail value of $66, although I would say that my most favorite item, the MukLuk Slipper Socks, have actually been invaluable. Some collections are more on the sexy side, but this one is more on the practical side and so appreciated.

Lots of fun in the Wantable February Accessories Collection!

Looking outside my window right now, it is snowing and blowing and the temperature is below zero.  I can’t be alone in wanting warm spring weather and fun, bright colors to match a shining sun!  My February Accessories Collection that I was sent from Wantable for review brought me a fabulous teaser for warm weather with four pieces that are going to get lots of play.

Wantable February 2015 Accessories Collection

Wantable February 2015 Accessories Collection

Like last month, my collection includes a ring, a necklace, a pair of sunglasses, and a scarf.  I am thrilled with the variety of items, and they all go together with silver tones and fun-loving vibe.

Courtney Ring

Courtney Ring

The Courtney Ring (retail value $11) is a silver stretch ring that looks like an arrow.  This is a bigger, statement ring that looks especially good with a white t-shirt, jeans, black boots, and pastel nail polish.

Macy Sunglasses

Macy Sunglasses

The Macy Sunglasses (retail value $14) have extremely large frames and the most gorgeous silver detailing on the sides.  These are going to be fantastic for maximum protection at the beach!  This is a pair of sunglasses that Jackie-O would absolutely love.

Sheila Necklace

Sheila Necklace

I am totally digging the Sheila Necklace (retail value $16).  This is a double layer necklace with fun silver disc details.  It looks like it would be very heavy but it is feather light.  The Sheila Necklace is just beautiful and I am so glad I can specify my necklace length preferences as this is exactly the length I like.

Suri Scarf

Suri Scarf

My final item is the Suri Scarf (retail value $24).  This is a lightweight oblong scarf in fun, springy mint, cream, and grey.  Pictures don’t really do this justice.  The Suri Scarf is one that works with any outfit, from casual jeans to a sundress.

Wantable is always a great value at $36 a month.  My collection this month had a retail value of $65, and I will definitely wear every item.  I think the best part about Wantable is how very specific you can be regarding preferences, yet every collection is still a wonderful surprise.
