This is the second time I've received my box so early in the month, especially since it came from the states! Australian beauty boxes, you have absolutely NO excuse for sending boxes out late!
I received 5 full sized items in my box this month, as well as two makeup remover wipes (samples).
1. Cailyn Cosmetics - Linefix Gel Pencil in Black - RRP: USD$17
I have yet to swatch this, as I hate using new eyeliners or mascaras until I finish an old one. I love that I received a black one, as black eyeliners are a staple in my makeup collection and I use them practically everyday.
2. LAQA & Co. Nail Polish in Fancypants - RRP: USD$11.00
I'm not going to lie and say I thought this was the most gorgeous colour in the world when I pulled it out of the box. In fact, I thought it was quite the opposite... until I swatched it today.
This polish looks different, depending on the light. Sometimes it looks more of a grey brown....
3. MiA BelleZZa Eyeshadow in Peach Puff - RRP: USD$16.00
I'm not a big eyeshadow user, but I think this would be great as a base, as it's quite a light, peachy pink colour.
4. WhipHand Cheek Flash in Biased - RRP: USD$18.00
I'm not a big fan of loose powders because I find them too messy. I'm on the fence with this product. Whilst the colour is nice and pigmented, the packaging is not the best. I like that there's a twisty thing (photo on the right) that can open up the packaging, exposing product or can shut it off completely so you don't get a heap of product everywhere when you open the cap after travelling with it. However, what you see above is what I saw when I twisted off the lid for the first time. There's already product all over the shop. I don't think this will be travelling anywhere with me.
5. Michael Marcus Lipstick in Dannette - RRP: USD$24.00
When I first opened this lipstick, I thought the colour was pretty but not for me. I originally wanted to include this in a giveaway, but it's a tat damaged. It looks like a manufacturing problem, as the lipstick does not sit in the middle of the holder, resulting in one side being "squished". I guess I'll have to use it and perhaps layer it with a coloured lipgloss.
"Is your makeup ready for take-off? Make it a smooth departure with these handy makeup removing wipes! This moisturizing formula with vitamin E dissolves makeup from eyes, lips, and face in a snap!"
A nice bonus that will definitely be handy when I go travelling next.
Overall, I'm not as impressed with this box than I was with the other Wantable boxes I've received in the past. Having said that, it's still a good box, and definitely trumps the other beauty boxes in the Australian market. I will definitely continue purchasing Wantable for as long as I can afford it.
