Just like the runways, EVERYTHING on the internet has literally caught ’90s fever. So when Wantable offered me to check out their latest July box, you betcha I was dying to recreate beauty looks reminiscent of ’90s muses Cher Horowitz and Courtney Love.
You’ve definitely heard us rant and rave about beauty box subscriptions before, but unlike other ones we’ve tried, Wantable allows consumers to customize their own boxes with special full-sized products.To get the products that are suitable for your skintone and lifestyle, users are asked to fill out a short profile (skintone, product preferences, etc.) so the in-house stylist can handpick 5 items just for you.
Once your box arrives, you’ll see that Wantable takes customization to the next level, as your name is neatly printed on the inside of the box, letting you know that whatever is inside was totally packed with you in mind. I’ll admit I was pretty impressed when the box arrived, as the personalized label made me feel like I was totally part of the process. Now onto the fabulous treats!
Each of the 5 full-sized goodies inside this month’s box gave me that moody, grungy princess vibe I was desperately looking for. To start, I instantly fell in love with the Tarina Tarantino Black Fleur De Lash Mascara, as it elongated my lashes in a flash without going on too heavy. For best application, simply curl lashes with a lash curler, then apply 2 coats wiggling the brush from root to tip.
Next up inside the box was the Mica Beauty Cosmetics Green Mineral Eyeshadow, which gave my eyes that sweep of sultry jade. Since I was going for a deeper lip, I wanted to keep my eyes pretty minimal. So keep in mind, when applying on this product, just a small amount of this loose mineral eyeshadow goes a long way. And if you’re totally a fan of illuminating shades, this shimmering hue looks amazing under the sun or on the dance floor.
My hands-down favorite part of the box, however, had to be the Mirabella Lip Colour in Berry, which dressed up my lips in the most daring shade of dark fuchsia. Upon application, I really loved how this lipstick was full-sized and didn’t bleed upon application. Perfect for achieving that ’90s babe look, try wearing this with some added lip liner (or use some eyeshadow!) for that tough girl finish.
To finish my look, the Ofra Pink Loose Color Blush gave my cheeks some sparkling sheen, as its rosy champagne tint goes on easily like fairy dust. Anything glittery was huge in the ’90s (thanks Spice Girls!), so layer on this ultra-fine loose powder onto your eyes, face or body for a true nostalgic effect.
