Lots of subscription box goodies to show you for August! Hang on....
No cute card, but Wantable does tell you about the collection, and the retail value of your items.
This month's Wantable box was all makeup, and it's always all full-sized offerings, which I like. At first, I wasn't sure I was going to like this month - mostly because I coveted a blush palette I saw someone else get! But I actually enjoyed my box this month.
I didn't think I needed any more brow or eye liners, but these are both pretty cool. The Mica Beauty pencil is actually a gel 'pen' and is smooth, smooth, smooth. The Vincent Longo Everbrow Micro Pencil is kinda tiny, and it's kinda a good thing! I love the color, and it's so easy to use. Here they are, swatched, with the OFRA cream eyeshadow in Golden Sparkle:
And, here's a look I did with all three, plus the Elizabeth Mott It's So Big mascara. (That's what she said. And she was being lied to. It's not that big.) I'm also wearing my It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation in Light/Medium and Radiance Palette, and Too Faced La Creme in Cinnamon Kiss.

Ipsy.. oh, Ipsy, how I have sung your praises for months. You are slipping. You are off your game. You are back to cheapie samples, and fewer full-sized products.
I am excited to get to try Urban Decay Perversion Mascara, though. This mascara has been getting beauty blogger raves! The primer, Subversion, isn't something I'd normally search out for, but also is getting raves, so if you're into mascara, you might like to try them together.
The other product I really liked this month was the Mongongo lip balm. I don't need another one, but this one smells amazing, with citrus and ginger notes. Feels great, too.
I have tried the Klorane dry shampoo before, and I like it. One of the better ones, I think.
I also got a J.Cat eyeshadow in FSE 110 Flying Naked. Pretty, and a useful color, but nothing I'm excited about.
I don't know much about the Dr. Brandt line, but I was interested in trying the Pores No More primer. I think it did a decent job of blurring my larger pores around my nose. (Before is on your left, after on your right.) Ignore the big ol' zit, please.

Beauty Box 5
I wish all the sub boxes would make these little cards. So much easier to tell what you've got and how to use it.
I was a little worried about the Nanacoco lipgloss. I previously reviewed a Nanacoco nail polish as the worst smelling polish in the world. The lippie had no such problems. It's not as pigmented as it let on, but I like the flat applicator, and the color is nice.
I did like the Style Essentials glitter! I love flakies, and iridescent glitter is close... This is layered over Ulta Green and Wear It, an emerald green crelly.

After two other samples of Harvey Prince perfume that smelled awful on me, I was dreading this one, but it actually smells really good! Kinda grapefruit-y.
I liked the Whish shaving cream, too. I usually shave with shower gel - this is so much smoother.
I didn't try the Number 4 hair product yet, and I've already gotten a sample of Staniac before. S'okay.
I dooooo love Paula's Choice, though, and was excited to get to try another of her products. Love the sweet packaging on the Resist Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum, too! When you twist, the pump comes up out of the bottle! ooooooh. ahhhhhh..

Whew! ok, that's a lot of samples. What, if anything, would you want to try, or which sample have you tried and loved? Any subscription box tickling your fancy?
