What I Received in My April Wantable Box

Wantable is one of the first boxes I receive each month, so there’s really no excuse for why it takes me so long to put up a review! Wantable is a makeup subscription box that costs $40 per month for a one-off box or $36 with a recurring subscription. This is not a sample box; instead they send out only full-size products that are tailored specifically to the items you tell them you want.

Here’s what I received in my April Wantable Box:

La Bella Donna Lip Stick

La Bella Donna Mineral Light Lip Color in Mindful Red ($24.50) – I’m not sure why the lipstick itself looks so dark (other than my shoddy photography skills), but this is actually a pretty traditional red color. Neither too dark nor too light. I will be using this!

According to the La Bella Donna website, they highly recommend applying this lipstick with a brush for the best results. While I’ve had makeup artists apply lipstick to me this way I’ve never really thought to do this myself. Note to self: Invest in lipstick brush!

Cailyn Cosmetics Puff Mineral Blush

Cailyn Cosmetics Puff Mineral Blush in Dusty Rose ($30) – I somewhat recently received a “puff” blush and I love it! The “brush” is a puff that is attached to the lid of the container. You screw the lid off and then insert the puff into the blush, then apply to cheeks. The blush I already has provides amazing color, so I can’t wait to see how this blush from Cailyn compares!

Wedding Wednesday: The Wedding Cost Checklist

Wedding Wednesday

Buzzfeed has a bunch of great wedding infographics posted on their site that I just looked through, but the one below, The Wedding Cost Checklist, really stood out to me.

Most likely you’re not going to print out this enormous graphic and use it to budget your wedding, but I thought it was a super-detailed visual representation of everything you can expect to pay for that’s wedding-related. It gets down to the very nitty gritty, including things like wedding insurance, which I didn’t even know was a thing, and flower girl flowers and entertainment! It also includes stag and hen nights, aka bachelor and bachelorette parties in British English (the infographic was put designed by an Australian company).
