How was the week? It feel like summer is coming to an end up here. Today was warmer than it has been, so that was nice. I honestly can't believe it's August already. Where has the time gone??!!?? I also find it hard to believe that my son is going to be FIVE soon. I swear I just had him.
Anyway...today's post is different from the usual stuff here. I want to share with you a new subscription box that I am now getting (THANK YOU SO MUCH MICHAELE!!!!) It's the makeup box from Wantable.
Wantable is a subscription service that is $36 a month. They have three different options: a makeup box (like you see here), an accessories box (with items like jewelry, scarves, sunglasses), and an intimates box (pajamas, underwear, bras, even yoga wear). You take a very detailed survey, and you are guaranteed NOT to get things you say you don't like. On top of that, they have a return policy. If you don't like you box, just send it back and get your money back. The makeup box gets you 4--5 full sized premium items every month.
You can check it out here: Wantable (that is my own link and I would get credit if anyone were to actually sign up)
Let's dive in to what I got this month:
First up I got a purse sized glass nail file from Mont-Bleu, it's so pretty with all the Swarovski crystals on it. This retails for $10. I heard these last for a long long time, so I am happy to get it.
I also received a lip stick from Liptini in the color Irish Créme. It is so my shade. Most of my lip products are in this color family . This is my first product from Liptini, and this retails for $18. I don't know about that value, I am not sure I would pay that for this. The formula seems nice and it swatched well. I will have to wear it for a bit and report back.
I also got a liquid eyeliner pen from Mica Beauty. This is a felt tipped pen with a nice precision point on it. It is in black. The retail price for this is listed at $30, but I would pay maybe $5 for this. The packaging feels so cheap. I love eyeliners and haven't really used felt tipped ones before, so this should be interesting.
The top line was the third one I did and I pressed down fairly hard. The middle one was the first one, and the one on the bottom was second were I started pressing harder. As you can see, I think this will take some practice.
Last, I got this AMAZING eyeshadow palette from Tarina Tarantino. This line used to be sold at Sephora and I had a mascara from the line that I thought was wonderful. I got two products last month as well that I liked. This has five shades and they are all perfect for me. The retail price is listed as $32, and I could see myself paying that for a good palette.
This is the ivory shade and the dark chocolate shimmer color.
This is the light brown shimmer and the dark brown matte color.
Yes I cropped my hands as close as possible on these pictures. Mostly because YES I am that pale. You can see my big gnarly veins if I show you too much. Didn't want to gross people out. LOL
I just can't help it.
The listed retail value for the box was $90 with a cost of $36. However, I think the value maybe overstated on some products. I was happy with it though. They picked items that were absolutely perfect for me. I look forward to using each one.
I have other subscription boxes each month, would you like to see those too?
Do you have one I should check out?
