Wantable December 2014 Collection: Review and Swatches
Happy new year everyone! Today I have an unboxing and review of the Wantable December 2014 Collection ($40 CAD per box, $10 shipping to Canada) to share with you all. To find out what goodies I got, click.......
For this month, I received four items altogether. My preferences, as per usual, are lip colors, highlighters, eyeshadows, and blush. I recall that I selected no lip glosses but somehow I still ended up with one. I am not certain if this was a mistake I made in my survey or if it was a packing mistake. Anyhow though, let's get into the products:

3 Custom Color Lip Liner in "Warm Red" ($16.50):
This is a simple pencil liner in a gorgeous brownish red. The formulation is not too dry but not too creamy either. I like the color as I wear a lot of red lipsticks but overall it's an ok product considering that the majority of pencil liners nowadays feature a twist-up mechanism.

Gleam by Melanie Mills Lip Radiance in "Pop My Cork" ($24.00):
This is a light peachy nude lipgloss. The formulation is slightly sticky but the packaging is very pretty with the rose gold details.

Eddie Funkhouser Luxelight Illuminator in "Candlelight" ($11.99):
This is a twist-up brush tip face highlighter in a neutral beige/nude skin tone with very subtle shimmers. I am not sure if this is a travel-sized product or a simple alternate packaging but the image of the product included in the information sheet is a tube with a pump as opposed to a click pen.
The formulation is nice, it works well on the lids and cupid's bow.

Lord & Berry Eyeshadow in "Nude Rose" ($22.00):
This is a pale champagne shimmer highlighting shadow. The formulation is very pigmented and creamy and because the color is so versatile, it can also be used at as a highlighter.

Overall:
This box was a bit disappointing. The formulation is great for all products but none really stood out to me. The lipgloss was definitely not a product I wanted to receive. Additionally, I've never really heard of any of the brands featured. Although subscription services are great for trying out new products, it's always nice to see some familiar brands. The overall value of the box is $74.49, again not the best considering the box costs $40 and shipping is $10.
