Hey all, I’ve actually had my Wantable make-up box for awhile but didn’t get a chance to write a review until now. If you read my other reviews, you would’ve noticed that I didn’t have much luck with their Accessories box. I saw their Intimates box but I really wanted to try the Make-up box first.
My returns has always gone smoothly so I had no trouble with the processing, shipping and getting my money back at all. They are really good at that so I’m always willing to give a box a try.
All the boxes are pretty much a standard size (at least for Accessories and Make-up box). The shipping is crazy fast it was shipped on 8/28/13 and I got it on 8/30/13- that’s two days!
Everything was nicely packed in their packaging. I had black styrofoam like my other August Wantable Accessories box to keep everything in place. I got two different products from the same product line twice so I think its nice to get a set that went together. I never tried any of these companies before but I like how most (if not all) my products are natural, eco-friendly and doesn’t use harmful chemicals. Plus, I got an extra coupon and a bonus product! =]
I kept my profile quiz pretty simple/natural. I choose NOT to receive mascara or lip products and requested for matte powder. This is the first time I got exactly what I asked for! =0
Laqa & Co. Nail Polish Remover Pads. Retail: $5.95. These came with 32 thin pads perfect for to go situations. I didn’t like the smell too much but it wasn’t acetone based- it had an oily feel to it so I had to wash my hands/feet afterwards. I thought it took awhile to take my old nail polish off but I only used 4 pads to get my nails and toes so its pretty good but it takes awhile. When I’m done using up the pads I plan to recycle by adding round cotton pads (peeling the layers as I go) and let them soak in polish remover.
Laqa & Co. Nail Polish Chubs. Retail: $11.00. These are about the same size as Julep’s bottle but I think they have a little bit more. I really love this polish! Its a gold shimmery color and it goes on beautifully in one coat. I didn’t put on top coat but so far it hasn’t chipped yet. It’s a reasonable price compared to Julep but I would have to try out their other colors to see if they are all that awesome. They gave me a $10 off coupon code if I spend $30 or more. The site is pretty small with limited products but I’m interested in the polish pens! I love decorating my nails so I’m excited to see how well they work.
Lise Watier Havana Bronzing Powder. Retail: $29.00. I love the packing and design! The left picture is with flash, right is without flash. The powder is matte and it’s such a pretty natural color. Its darker than my skin and brighter so my “glow” will look natural/healthy tan. My face is pretty oily at times so instead of using shimmery bronzer that makes me look extra oily the matte powder will even out my shiny face. I love the shell design- makes me not want to use it and mess it up!
Lise Watier Solo Eyeshadow Powder Prune Matte. Retail: $18.00. There’s an embossed “W” in the powder and it came with a eyeshadow tool. I got another matte powder because I have too many shimmery eyeshadows. I one thing I don’t like is the color, its the same color as my eye lids without make-up so when I put it on-my eye lids look tired and deep-setted. I have different kind of eyes compared to others- it huge eye, mono-lid, that pop out so hard to figure out how to get the illusion of normal eyelids.
