Wantable March Makeup Collection UnboxingFriday, March 20, 2015
I received a Makeup Collection from Wantable in order to facilitate an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.
I chose the Makeup collection, took the quiz, and received my package in no time. Would you like to see what I got?
My Wantable collection came super-well-padded, so expect no broken compacts or bottles. I love the little touches, and being greeted with "Lovely to see you, Gorgeous!" tickled me. You'll also receive a packet with your order details that contain in-depth info on your products and instructions to return some or all of them if you're not happy.
I received 4 full-sized products in my collection. I indicated that I loved eyeliners, nail polishes, and beauty tools, and I've been looking for a good bronzer, so all of these items were included in my collection.
The quiz is pretty in-depth; You can indicate whether you love a type of product, like it, or don't want to see it in your collections at all. You also can further narrow it down by types of colors (neutrals, brights, etc.), product application styles (liquids, powders, loose, compacts, etc.) and include your own complexion and colors in your profile, so you won't be receiving anything you know you won't use.
First up in my collection was a Lise Watier Smoky Kohl Velours eyeliner in Kohl.
This long-lasting, velvety-textured matte eyeliner can be applied inside or outside the lid line, adding instant intensity to your gaze. The smudger can be used to switch the look from natural to intensely dramatic.
I'm almost out of the smudge-proof Stila eyeliner that I love so much, so I was happy to see this one included. I love eyeliners that come with a smudger; It saves me from using my fingertips, which is great because I tend to forget it's there and get it elsewhere on my face as I'm applying my makeup. Every. Time.
This eyeliner is luxe and retails for $20. When you receive it in your collection, you're only paying $10.81. Score.
Next up is the Bodyography Pro Tapered Blending Brush.
Soft, tapered blending brush perfect for application and blending of eyeshadow.
I'm a makeup brush novice. I've always just used the brushes that came with the makeup; That's what they're for, right? Sure, but they truly do a terrible job compared to a great set of professional brushes. Since buying a set, I'll never go back, and usually discard the ones in makeup sets that I buy. I already have a fabulous eyeshadow brush, but I've been wanting another. Mine is a bit large, and I could really use a second, smaller eyeshadow brush, so this inclusion was fortunate.
This brush retails for $10.00; It's included in your collection for $5.41.
Next, the Sorme Believable Bronzer in Sunkissed.
This slightly glistening formula adds gorgeous luminosity while it warms your skin tone. Apply with Kabuki Brush or large face Powder Brush, concentrating on forehead, cheek hollows, and chin.
I love that they include some instruction for those who may not be familiar with applying bronzer. I use my current bronzer to contour, and it's great for a night look, but it's a tad dark for daytime. The above swatch on my wrist shows 4-5 swipes without blowing or knocking off extra product, so you can tell it will be a bit translucent. Perfect.
This bronzer retails for $30.00; It's included in your collection for $16.22.
And lastly, Liberty Republic's Spellbound Nail Lacquer in Catalyst.
These polishes bind to the nail for a gel-like wear that lasts up to 2 weeks. The entire line of Spellbound Nail Lacquer is is 5-free, cruelty free, vegan, long wearing, quick drying, and chip resistant.
I love new polishes, but I'm not crazy about sheers; I love a solid, shiny cream. This one is a grape-purple shimmer that's pretty sheer, but buildable. In the above pic I've applied 4 coats. It was fairly fast-drying, so it was quick to apply and build, and I only left about 30 seconds between coats. I've already been complimented on the color, and I don't currently own a bright purple, so it's a keeper!
This polish retails for $14.00; It's included in your collection for $7.57.
Everything together retails for $74.00, but you only pay $40 for the whole collection! That's a great deal!
The way the service works is this: Each collection is $40, but if you keep everything, you get a $4 credit on your next collection, so subsequent collections are only $36! They ship 4-5 products, and everything is full-sized; No samples here. If you're curious and want to learn more about how the service works, check out their page on how Wantable works here.
I loved getting such a great package in the mail, and I can't wait to try the other collections. If you're curious about Wantable, you can check out their other services and take the quizzes before you schedule your first collection here.
