I’m feeling fab with my August Wantable cosmetics

Wantable August 2015 cosmetics

Welcome to my August cosmetic box from Wantable. This is the subscription that I’ve kept up since I first heard about them. I do love the surprises I get from a subscription box and Wantable remains in my heart. This month’s box is worth $74.15 and I paid $36 for it. I had $4 in credits so I didn’t have to pay the full $40 fee. That means I got double my money’s worth and I’m quite happy with the variety I received this month.

OFRA LIPSTICK IN AMETHYST (retail $13.15) is the item I was most excited to see. I’ve gotten a few scattered OFRA products in boxes but nothing yet that’s been on my wishlist, until now!! Not only have I wanted to try their lipsticks but it’s a shade in my comfort zone. Amethyst is a pinky lavender that’s midtone, it’s not too light and it’s not too dark. Nor does it turn on me. Ofra lipstick is quite moisturizing and it’s enriched with anti-oxifants, vitamin E and natural sunscreens. It does have a fragrance, that reminds me of grape popsicles, but luckily it’s pleasant to me. Good job Wantable. You pleased me right off the bat.

MODEL CO BLUSH in COSMOPOLITAN (retail $22) isn’t the blush I’d pick to go with the Amethyst lipstick but I’ll still use it often. It’s a warm pink that will work well with most of the lips and eyes I choose to wear. It’s got a satiny finish and I love that there’s no glitter in it. My pores aren’t taking well to shimmer lately.

MOSI MEI POLISH in PASSIONATE (retail $15) is a stunning nail polish that I’ll love in the fall. It’s a metallic violet that has incredible shine. I’m a huge fan of metallic polishes and this is a shade I don’t have. I love the square bottle and I’m very happy to have this shade. The Mosi Mei polishes are 5 free, cruelty free and vegan. If this wears well I see a lot of shades on their website that I’d be interested in.

CATTIVA DIVONO LASH MASCARA (retail $24) is my only complaint this month. I’m not complaining about the mascara though. I’m complaining that I’ve been sent 3 mascaras in the last 3 months. Considering a mascara is good for 3 months did I really need another one so soon? If they sent this in November I’d be pleased as punch but I’m not using it until November because I have their last two mascaras open along with others. What I can tell you is that this has beautiful packaging with the top being crystal studded. It’s a paraben free mascara. I just can’t explain how it works yet. There’s a slight chance I’ll send it back to get the $12.95 credited to my account. I just need to decide.

Overall I’m very happy with the WANTABLE subscription box for August because it’s given me products I’ve never tried and in shades that work beautifully for me. Nail polish is on my LOVE list in my profile and the other 3 products are all in my like list so they were on track. I understand that there’s now an option to receive skincare as part of your box but I won’t add that to my profile since I’m overloaded with skincare. But it’s nice that it’s an option and you can decide for yourself.

What do you think of this box? Are any of these products you’d be thrilled to suddenly own? — Marcia
