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.

  1. I stopped my sub to Wantable a long time ago to save money. But I’m SO jealous of this box, I might just have to start again. lOL

  2. I LOVE the color of the blush. The floral eyeshadow is beautiful. I probably wouldn’t even use it because it’s so pretty.

  3. That Mirabella eye shadow is just … wow… so gorgeous!

  4. I have my Wantable sub on pause, but I may have to reactivate it now that you can return things. What a great idea! I would be bummed by that brush, too.

  5. I like how they break down the cost for you so you know exactly where your money’s going!

  6. I have to say, that brush does look scratchy. But, I love everything about the pink shadow.

  7. That mirabella eyeshadow is gorgeous

  8. That eyeshadow has THE prettiest design ever! I couldn’t ever bear to use it LOL. Bummer about the brush. Why do companies even make scratchy brushes?

  9. I love the look of the Mirabella! Before I even read your review I knew the brush was a dud. I hate to judge just by looking at something… but it just didn’t look like it’d be good.

  10. This looks like a great box. I really like that eyeshadow. It’s like almost a full look in a box. That’s definitely a good deal!

  11. Try leaving the lipstick uncapped for a few days to see if the fragrance dissipates. Worth a shot since the color’s so nice.

    The blush is beyond pretty

  13. That Mirabella blush is so pretty, kinda reminds me of Clinique

  14. Jess Scull says:

    omg this box is killer! Love that blush & eyeshadow!

  15. The Mirabella flower looks so close to one from Laura Mercier I own and one from Chantecaille.

  16. That Mirabella is so pretty and perfect for spring. I love anything that has a pretty embossing on it. 🙂

  17. That eyeshadow looks like some of the Chantel highlighters. I would be happy to take the lipstick off your hands!

  18. Love Wantable! This looks like a great box

  19. I’ve always wanted to try Wantable. Looks like you got a great box!
