October 2016 Wantable Makeup Review

       

The time has come... The election is finished and we can now just deal with the results and not be bombarded by annoying political ads. Seriously, this has been the most headache inducing campaign I've ever seen and I am just happy that it's over! Enough about all that craziness though! Let's get to the October Wantable Makeup box!



Wantable, who kindly sent me this box for review, is without question my favorite subscription service. They offer a wide range of boxes to choose from: Accessories, Intimates and Makeup  (They also offer a fabulous style and fitness edit but they don't work like the three I just mentioned). Each of the three traditional subscriptions costs $40 a month and you will generally receive 4-5 items. Their return policy is absoloutly fabulous as well. You may return items you don't like and receive a partial refund or return them all for a full refund with no questions asked. Love everything in your box? If you keep all the items you'll receive a $4 credit to put towards your next box.


I will forever love how customizable Wantable subscriptions are. You can tweak your settings at any time to fit your needs. I mix mine up seasonally as trends and colors change. 


Ardency Inn Punker Mascara --- I love the name and I love how fat this tube and wand are! I've tried a few Ardency Inn products before but this is my first go with their mascara and I am not at all disappointed. I love this formula. It's inspired by lightweight hair pomade actually. The formula is more of a lash wax and packs a serious punch in the volume and curl department. It's my new favorite.


Tarina Tarantino Gem Gloss in 'Neon Vanity' --- Another brand introduced to me thanks to subscription boxes. This is always such a fun brand and I love how bold and beautiful there products and packaging are. It's not sticky, it has great staying power, it moisturizes and plumps your pout, and it gives just the right amount of sparkle and shine!


Besame Cosmetics Lipstick in 'Dusty Rose' --- This brand is new to me but holy crap am I in love now! Look at that packaging, people! Just look at that gorgeous, gold retro metal tube! I'm having flashbacks to raiding my grandmothers makeup drawer as a child and that is a fantastic thing!


It's such a lovely color, don't you think? This brand is actually all about recreating the beloved corsmetics of eras gone bye. This lipstick is a semi-matte finish and the color is actually a dupe for a vintage shade. I also love the old school shape of the lipstick itself. I need more of this brand!!!


NCLA Nail Polish in 'Clear the Runway' --- So, this is one of those colors that just would not photograph well for me. It's actually this rich, deep burgundy that has more of a purple tint. I love NCLA polish in general but I think this may be my favorite shade so far. It goes on smoothly, is perfect with only 2 coats, dries really quickly, has a beautiful high gloss finish, and is fairly chip resistant.  


Love isn't a strong enough word to describe how I feel about my Wantable boxes. They can't possibly ever disappoint me. They really are a prime example of everything a subscription box should be.
