Wantable May 2013

Well, here it is, my first Wantable makeup box!

Frownies Eye Gels 1 pair - value approx $10
Besame lipstick in Dusty Rose - value $22
Knock Out nail polish in Pool - value $14
Manna Kadar eyeshadow in Uptown - value $18?
Face Stockholm Blush in Delightful - value $20
Three Custom Color Specialists brow powder #5 - value $22.50
Total value: $106.50

Not bad at all for a box that cost $36!

The eye gels I didn't much care for - I used them once and tossed them. They can be reusable for a certain number of times, but you're supposed to use their rosewater hydrator spray to store them in, which of course isn't included, and I'm not buying it for a product I'm not all that thrilled about. I couldn't tell much of a difference after using the gels, but then you probably need to use them several times for any noticeable results.

I like the Besame lipstick though! Dusty Rose is kind of a darker pink shade that I think looks pretty good on me, and it lasts a decent amount of time after putting it on. The tube is certainly pretty, and it came in a little velveteen bag. Haven't seen that before, but then I don't tend to buy the more expensive lipsticks =p

The nail polish I haven't tried yet, but I like the color. The cap and brush are a lot longer than typical nail polishes, so it seems a bit unwieldy. I guess I'll find out!

I didn't care very much for the Manna Kadar eyeshadow...I think I might like other colors of it, but Uptown has too much of a red hue for me - I don't like reddish eyeshadows. My eyes look irritated enough from allergies as it is =P Maybe if I used it in combination with a different color..

The Face blush was okay. The color is a little bright for my complexion, but if I use a really light hand with it, it turns out fine.

I was happy to find brow powder in with my box! I'd really needed some. The color might be a smidge dark, but I'm planning on going darker with my hair soon anyway.

Box Score: 4.7
