Wantable April Makeup Box Review

As most women do, I love cosmetics. I need all the help I can get in the beauty department. Anything that can help me look better is essential to me.

Discovering new and exciting beauty products is on of my biggest passions. Although with so many available, searching for the best can be an exhausting experience. As a busy mommy to 2 very active young children, I don't really have time to shop around, and I certainly don't have the money to pay top dollar for products I am not even sure will work.

Thankfully for me, there are people whose job it is to research and try beauty products, and then take the very best items and use them to create customized surprise boxes for myself and other beauty lovers.

Who are these beauty super heroes? Well I don't know their names, but I do know that they work at Wantable.

Wantable is an amazing service that offers Monthly boxes packed full of only the very best tried and true products, for much less than retail.

Not only do you get the wonderful quality of the fabulous beauty products, but you also get all the fun of the surprise and the falling on love with products you may never have even heard of previously.

This is the best way to find new favorites.You get a very nice variety of full size, premium beauty products delivered right to your door.

While the actual products you will receive is a surprise, you can customize the box by choosing your favorite categories(to increase your chances of getting those) and eliminating any category you may not like.

I adore everything that I received, but I probably would not have discovered these on my own, which makes me love them even more.

I received 6 FULL SIZE products:

29 Cosmetics Dew Lipgloss in Napa Sunset:

Is this not one of the most GORGEOUS shades you have ever seen? I LOVE the shimmer and it is such a stunning peachy pink. So feminine and innocent.

The consistency is perfect. It is silky smooth and not too sheer or runny, but it is not at all heavy or sticky. I am so in love.

Cailyn Eyeshadow Pencil #2:

This pencil is fantastic. I love chubby pencils, and these colors are so smokin'. I especially love the solid silver(non glitter) it is so smooth and soft. It is perfect for highlighting the corners of the eyes(in place of a white). I love it.

The glitter end it wonderful too, it actually shows up more subtle than I imagined which is perfect. I was concerned I would look like a bad piece of glitter glue art, but it was so much more shimmering than full on glitter, and that is perfect for a grown up look.

It glides on with zero effort and gives you soft, smooth, long lasting, highly pigmented color all day. No smearing, fading, creasing or any flaws at all. It is so weightless and flexible. Just wonderful.

Paula Dorf 2+1 For Brows(Neutral):

This is so cool. I like never use brown products, but I love this. There are 2 shades of brow powder, so ensure a great match, and there is also a clear brow wax to shape and hold your browns while keeping the power perfect.

It is very easy to use, and it looks so natural and professional. I plan to use this a lot.

Lavera Soft Eyeliner(brown):
This pencil is so smooth. It glided on with no dryness or gaps at all. I was just firm enough to give precise control and lasting color with no smearing or fading.

The color is so rich and beautiful. I love that it is still a deep neutral yet not the standard, overplayed black. It really makes my eyes stand out, which is hard since I have very tiny eyes. This is my new go to liner. So glad I found this.

Color Club Nail Polish in He Loves Me:

What a fabulously girly pink. It is bright and playful. Perfectly flirty and youthful. A great color for Spring/Summer. I love that it is vibrant but not neon or something.

This goes on very easily, and the color is very rich. It covers very well with only one coat. It dries fast and lasts a long time with no chipping or peeling. It has a nice gloss but there is no shimmer whatsoever. A very very nice polish.

Cailyn Ultra Moisturizing Lip Color Pot in Rich Bronze:

This product is so perfect for me. Lip color is my biggest beauty obsession. If I wear nothing else, lip color is still a necessity.

I have super dry ;lips, so keeping them hydrated and smooth is very important and a top priority for me.

This is so rich and deeply nourishing. It feels like butter when applying and after removing. It is so easy to use, and great for traveling since there is no chance the lid can come off or the product can smush.

The color is so fabulous. I love the bronzy colors as it is, but it is ideal for summer when bronze is like religion. The shimmer is excellent, and it has just the right amount of translucence to make it look super soft and gorgeous.

As if all 6 of these phenomenal items was not enough, I also got a pair of Frownies Eye Gels:

These are so great. They are very refreshing physically and in terms of appearance.

I have dark circles under my eyes, and they really helped to diminish them. They made me look healthier and more awake. It kicked that tired mommy look to the curb in only 30 minutes.

I love that they are reusable up to 4 times. These are so great.

All in all, the box is UNBELIEVABLE!! I cannot believe that I could get all this for only $40 when purchased in single months, or even as low as $36 each moth for a subscription.

This is a $95 value not counting the Eye Gels or shipping. I am completely sold on Wantable Box. I think that any woman who can afford to spend money on beauty products, should be smart get over double the bang for her buck with Wantable.
*Although I received this box at no cost to facilitate a review, all opinions are 100% my own*
