Long time no see!~ ^_^;
Still in the middle of my midterms, and there's not an end in sight just yet. =A=
So this post will consist mostly of pictures. :D
So after looking through a lot of bloggers' posts on monthly beauty boxes, it's so tempting for me to try some too, but I always hesitated and wondered if it's ever worth it.
And I think it was during late September, I suddenly received an email from Romil Patel from Wantable, a new beauty and jewelry subscription box, to try out a complementary box! *_* Gah so exciting, and perfect timing, since I wanted to try one too! xD
The package came in this box, nothing else on the outside. .-. This is the September Beauty box. :)
So on their website there are 3 box choices to choose from; a beauty box, jewelry box or an intimates box, and right now a limited edition Halloween box! I choose the beauty box of course, which will come with full size products! The personalization of the boxes are super specific too, you can select exactly what you like or dislike for a LOT of categories, including colours, and types, and they'll never send the ones you dislike. xD And you can change preferences any time. Then they'll sent a box valued at $80 or more! :0
Also, they only ship to USA, Canada, and Australia at the moment.
But the downside is that this is quite expensive for a subscription box, priced at $40 per box, or $36 if you get a subscription. A bit too much for my budget, but I guess it's worth it in the end?
(I'm not affiliated with them, this box was just a complementary box, thanks to Romil Patel! ^_^)
The card that came inside, and some info.
Right after opening the box, the card, a sample, and the order list of the items and their original prices!
Tada~ The products! I received 5 beauty products + a sample.
The two sample cream eye shadows, so creamy and soft. *_* Looks like pills here! haha
I like Sunrise Peach the most.
Foundation brush! The bristles are really soft. I gave this to my mom though, since she needed one. xD
I like the colour and the pigmentation is quite nice, but it's a bit powdery. I've also seen Be a Bombshell eyeshadows in other cheaper beauty boxes.
A very pigmented, creamy and gorgeous red lip stick! I really love this, but don't know when to wear it. ;u;
The colour is in Russian.
A maroon metallic nail polish, it looks quite nice! But it peels, so a base coat is a must.
I also like the interesting packing design.
An eyebrow gel with built in brush! It's quite handy, the colour is a dark brown, and it lasts quite long too!
So the total retail prices come up to $93!
In this box I like the lipstick, eyebrow gel, and nail polish the most!
Do you think it's worth $40?
I think it is worth it, but it really depends what you get, and it really is luck of the draw. The surprise factor is what draws me in to subscriptions boxes. xD
Are you subscribed to any beauty boxes? Any recommendations? *_*
Okay thanks for reading, take care~ ^^
I'll see you next post for a review!
