1. Pomegranate Nail Lacquer in Rose Garden Romance - RRP: USD $8.50
I LOVE nail polish, and I haven't many reds. The polish is actually a few shades darker than this. I have yet to swatch it but I can't wait to wear this!
2. Michael Marcus Plump Lip Plumper - RRP: USD$20.00
"This must-have product is enriched with natural emollients to plump lips by increasing shine, hydration, and volume. After 15 days of regular use, you'll see more hydrated, fuller and more voluptuous lips. Castor Oil provides a protective, shiny appearance after application, Beeswax moisturizes, Vitamins A& E are natural antioxidants that protect the lips from free radical damage, and Wintergreen, Spearmint, and Peppermint increase circulation, adding warmth and flush to lips."
I gave this a quick swipe on my lips and it tasted like toothpaste. I can't say it's pleasant, as its a strong taste that lasts a rather long time. Upon application, my lips tingled and I wouldn't describe it as a warm feeling like Wantable did on the info paper, it's more of a cool feeling like the effects of menthol. My lips also felt hydrated and smooth. I may be able to look past the strong toothpaste taste!
3. Beauty For Real True Color Lip Cream in Barely There - RRP: USD$22.00
They are not joking when they say it's full coverage (swatch below)! The shade I received is definitely a my-lips-but-better shade. It's really wearable and non sticky! I can also see why they say it's long-wearing, as it took a lot of scrubbing to remove the swatch from my arm.
4. Girlactik Beauty Precise Marker Liner - RRP: USD$19.00
I swatched this and was impressed at how pigmented it is. I love the foam-ish style tip of this eyeliner, however I found it a tat hard to create a "super thin" line. The smudge proof test also failed, but it might be due to me not letting the eyeliner dry for long enough.

5. BONUS - Kikkerland Glam Girl Matchbox Emery files
I really should have taken a picture of the actual files #beautybloggerfail, as the files are printed with different girls (cartoon/comic style). It's kind of cute but slightly freaky. I think these will be perfect for travelling!
Overall, I'm not surprisingly impressed with Wantable yet again. It's probably not very fair that I compare Wantable with the Australian beauty box companies, since the brands that the Australian beauty box companies have access to probably aren't as generous to provide full sized products or are limited to brands, but I can't help it. It's not just the brands that sets Wantable apart from other companies, but also their customer service, and time management skills (sending out boxes at the beginning of the month, or even at the end of the previous month). Furthermore, they handpick products according to YOUR preferences. Gone are the days where you are completely disgusted at the products you receive in your beauty box, that is meant to be like a Christmas/Birthday present from yourself to yourself every month. If you are umming and ahhing about subscribing to Wantable, I suggest you give it a go, I promise you won't regret it (well, I certainly hope you don't)! Unfortunately, Wantable is only available to residents of USA, Canada and Australia.
