Wantable Makeup Subscription Box Review - August

Wantable is a monthly subscription service that has 3 different plans: Makeup, Accessories, and Intimates. (And coming soon – Fitness!) It’s one of the pricier subscriptions ($36 a month), but everything they send is full size, and they fully customize the boxes based on your preferences.

Wantable kindly sent me this makeup box at no cost to review.

Wantable Makeup Subscription Box Review - August 2014 Info

You get to take a very detailed survey of what items you love, like and dislike. You won’t receive anything in your dislike list.

Wantable Makeup Subscription Box Review - August 2014 Eye Shadow

Vincent Longo Pearl X Eyeshadow in Laguna Beach – Value $25

OFRA Liquid Blush in Babydoll – Value $20

This eyeshadow is absolutely gorgeous in the pan and it also is great in application too! It’s highly pigmented and so easy to blend! I like this liquid blush too – it goes on pretty sheer, so I didn’t have to worry about over-doing it.

Wantable Makeup Subscription Box Review - August 2014 Mascara

Elizabeth Mott It’s So Big Volumizing Mascara – Value $20

Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream HyperLight – Value $22

I’ve received both of these items in makeup boxes recently, but fortunately I like them both so I’m happy to have spares!

Verdict: My Wantable makeup box this month has a value of $87. I think the value is great, and I really like the two items that are new to me: the OFRA blush and the Vincent Longo mixed eyeshadow.

What did you get from Wantable Makeup this month? And are you going to try the Wantable Fitness subscription when it launches?

  1. I would’ve loved to try the Elizabeth Mott mascara because I love the products from that I have gotten from that line. I also already have the highlighter, but I really like it so it’s nice to have another one. I really love my box though and am excited to try everything!

  2. The beauty Wantable box doesn’t make sense to me. You pay more than a lot of other boxes, but the value isn’t anything outstanding.

    • It’s all full-size products though, so if you like most of it, the value is there. I’m just not sure I need four full-size makeup products a month, so I just skip this one every other month.

  3. I just signed up for Wantable Accessories, and this box has me yearning for the makeup one, too! That OFRA Liquid Blush looks so pretty.

    I’m also really interested in the Wantable Fitness box because I feel like I can never find cute workout clothes for a good price. I might be trying that service out soon!

    Great review!

    • I got the Wantable Makeup box last month and liked half of what I got (a Vincent Long lipstick and a Tarina Tarantino eyeshadow palette) but not the other half (another lipstick and the Ofra liquid blush, actually). I was going to do the makeup again because they’re offering Tarina Tarantino blush this time but then decided I could just buy my choice of colors in blush at Sephora or somewhere, so I’d skip the makeup box this month.
      Instead, I’m giving the accessories box a shot. And the Intimates box again after a good first month then a fail in July (think I changed up my choices too much). I like the ability to skip months and also to return boxes if they’re a miss, like last month’s orange-filled intimates box.

  4. I’m curious to see what Wantable Fitness is going to have. Just workout gear or a mix of fitness related products? This makeup box looks pretty good compared to some others, but colors are so tough to have someone else pick for you!

  5. You received a great box! The eyeshadow is BEAUTIFUL. So far I only subscribe to Wantable accessories, but I’m pretty sure I could justify adding makeup and intimates. 🙂 I’m getting really excited for the Fitness box! I may wait for a couple of reviews before purchasing though. Thanks for all you do!
