Wantable Makeup Subscription Box Review – October 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 Cost: $36 a month (one time only purchase available for $40)
The Products: Makeup, nail polish and tools based on your profile settings.

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 seems to be in a lot of Wantable makeup boxes lately!) Fortunately I don’t mind because I love a good palate (or eye shadow duo) and this one is probably double the size of the typical eye shadow pan. I love the neutral colors too. Both shades have a good amount of shimmer and pigmentation. This is a very usable product for me!
Ofra BB Cream in Light – Value $40
Vincent Longo Lip Gloss in Lili La Bella – Value $22
This is the largest BB Cream I think I’ve ever seen. (I don’t believe it’s only 2 ounces!) Anyway, I had to give it a try immediately because if it works for me than I have BB Cream for the next full year! What I liked: The coloring is very natural looking and matched my skin tone perfectly. What I didn’t like: I prefer my BB Creams to have medium-high coverage, but this Ofra version provides little coverage and is more like a sheer tinted moisturizer. I’m also not crazy about the scent, but it seems to fade after a while.
This lipgloss is a good basic color for me, and it goes on pretty sheer. It has a little amount of stickiness, but I have no complaints otherwise!
Spellbound Nail Lacquer in Premonition – Value $14
Chella Awesome Auburn Eyebrow Color Pencil – Value $18
This nail polish is a VERY dark midnight blue. I’m not sure I’d wear the color so I may end up gifting/swapping it. And unfortunately this eyebrow pencil is too red for my eyebrows. (I really like Chella too, so that was a disappointment!)
Verdict: This month’s box has a value of about $113. (I think that’s one of the best values I’ve ever received from a Wantable Makeup Box). I used to have a very specific and limited preferences profile, but now that I’ve opened it up to variety I think my value has improved too. I won’t use everything in this box unfortunately, but I am pleased with the brands and the value they sent.
