If any of you’re like me and want to be informed about new and exciting beauty products, you may be interested in the Wantable Monthly Subscription Box. The difference between this subscription process compared to others is that your monthly beauty box is specifically tailored to you and your tastes. By participating in a style quiz before purchase, Wantable determines which shades and products would be most desirable to you each month to ensure you get the most for your money. I think this is an incredibly insightful idea and ensures that your money is well spent on products that you’ll actually use.
While I’m a little late with my review, I wanted to share Wantable’s limited edition glamour box for Halloween. I was elated to see all of the full size Cinema Secrets items included in this set because I’ve been a long time fan and customer of the brand. They’re a highly underrated, theatrical makeup company that has long been utilized on the stage, TV and film by numerous pros in the industry, so you can count on receiving high quality products compared to the makeup from your average Halloween store.
Price: $36 USD for monthly subscribers or $40 USD for a one-time purchase. All of the contents contained in the limited edition Halloween box normally retail for a grand total of $66.98
Shipping: Ships to the US, Canada and Australia.
Packaging: All nine products come neatly packaged in a white box, adorned with an ornate black sugar skull sticker. The contents of the box are nestled in a black, organza draw string bag and come paired with an informative post card outlining the products included as well as details about the company.
Cruelty Free: All Cinema Secrets products are cruelty-free and PETA approved.
Cinema Secrets Ultimate Lip Liner in ‘Ruby’
The Cinema Secrets lip liner in ‘Ruby’ is a fantastic blue-based, crimson red lip liner that is strikingly close to the ‘Cherry’ lip pencil by MAC. ‘Cherry’ lip liner happens to be one of my holy grail products, so I was pleased to see how well ‘Ruby’ matched up. The pigmentation, longevity and waterproof formula also make this a highly coveted product. Listed at just one dollar on the Cinema Secrets website, this would be an affordable dupe for those of you looking to create a vintage look on a budget. It also works wonders when paired with the 5-in-1 Lip Palette, gliding on with ease and providing a long lasting base.
Cinema Secrets Micro-Fine Body Glitter in ‘Chorus Line’ and ‘Oscar’
‘Chorus Line’ is a micro-fine, vibrant turquoise glitter with a silver, shimmery undertone. ‘Oscar’ is a stunning true gold, infused with a mulit-colored glimmer. Both colors are suitable for the body as well as for the lids and will surely make a striking addition to your makeup bag even after Halloween. I think both of these eye catching glitters would be appropriate going into the holiday season and would add a bold accent to any dramatic or glamour based look. What I love most about these two glitters is their mermaid like quality. They catch the light beautifully and the colors are just as breath taking as the iridescent scales of the mythical sirens of the sea.
Cinema Secrets Hollywood Lights Mixing Adhesive
A fantastic, quick drying adhesive that allows you to liquefy your eye shadows to create eye liner or to use as a tacky base for pigment and glitter. This adhesive works particularly well in tandem with the micro-fine glitter making application a no fuss process while keeping the color locked in on the lids for all day wear.
Cinema Secrets Ultimate Eye Shadow in ‘Very Black’ and ‘Gold’
The Cinema Secrets ultimate eye shadows come by their name honestly. Even without the aid of a primer, these mineral based shadows apply with ease and without an over abundance of fall out. In terms of dark, matte eye shadows it’s usually quite difficult to find a black eye shadow that doesn’t produce a lot of fall out, so I was elated to to add this gem to my collection. As for the gold eye shadow it possesses a beautiful shimmer finish that would perfectly help to define the eyes for a fall, the holidays or a glamorous pin up look. Both shadows produce a velvety, pigmented finish that is easily blended and is also conveniently created for those of you that suffer from sensitive eyes.
Cinema Secrets 5-in-1 Ultimate Lip Palette in #1 ‘Can Buy Me Love’
This five color palette is my favorite product of the bunch. It comes stocked with five varying shades of red that are suitable for all skin types and provide a creamy, long lasting finish with just a hint of shine. I love the staying power of this palette, especially since I regularly wear red lipstick and am always on the look out for high performing lipstick. It’s got great diversity, it’s compact for storage and travel and delivers the longevity without the dryness. If you’re unsure of where to start with red lipstick, this palette is a wonderfully affordable option that’s suitable for experimentation outside of the Halloween season.
False Eye Lashes #138 and Lash Adhesive
I’m pleased to see such a full and dramatic set of lashes included in the kit. They’re somewhat spiked and have a semi-thick band which makes it more convenient to apply. I don’t particular like the standard adhesive that’s come with the lashes, but thankfully I have my trusty DUO lash adhesive to use instead.
I think the Wantable subscription box is a fantastic option for anyone looking to explore different cosmetic brands. I like the fact that all of the contents included are full size and that you’re fully able to test out each product without committing to each individual price tag. As for the Halloween box, I think Wantable has curated a highly balanced box full of items that are not only useful during the dress up season, but could also very well be utilized for every day wear. It’s also a convenient option to be able to purchase the box outside of the monthly subscription process so that you’re able to decide if the service is truly for you!
