Wantable Makeup Subscription Box Review – September 2014
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 sent me this makeup box at no cost to review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Wantable Makeup Subscription
The Cost: $36 a month (one time only purchase available for $40)
The Products: Makeup, nail polish and tools based on your profile settings.
Ships to: US, Canada (additional $6), UK (additional $7) and Australia (additional $10)

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.
Tarina Tarantino Doll skin Blush Palette – Value $45 (on sale today at HauteLook for $24)
I’d say the most exciting makeup product in subscription boxes is the palette – it’s a high-value item and you’re likely to find at least a few shades that work great for you. I was so excited for this palette, but as you can see from the photo one of the blush pans cracked in shipping. Fortunately I like to go with more subtle blush colors, so at least it was the boldest color that was destroyed!
(FYI – since I received this box for no cost and I can use this blush anyway I’m not reaching out to Wantable for a replacement, but if
Marsk Mineral Bronzer in Bondi Bronze – Value $42
OFRA Eye Gel Primer – Value $19.50
Marsk has been on my list of natural makeup lines I want to try, so this was a perfect addition to my box. It’s a little on the shimmery side, so I think I’ll save it for next summer though.
Vincent Longo Lip and Cheek Stain in Liquid Kiss – Value $22.50
This stain color reminds me of a dark red wine, but it blends into the skin for a very subtle effect – perfect for someone like me who is a little weary of stains for cheeks!
Verdict: I recently changed my Wantable preferences to expand what I was willing to try, and I think it really paid off in terms of value. This month’s box has a value of about $130! I think this is my favorite Wantable box to date – I’ll use everything, and all the products are new to me!
