Wantable Makeup Subscription Box Review – December 2015
Wantable is a monthly subscription service that has 3 different plans: Makeup, Accessories, and Intimates. (Plus a styling service for Fitness wear and clothing similar to Stitch Fix in the try-then-buy model.) It’s one of the pricier subscriptions ($40 a month), but everything they send is full size, and they fully customize the boxes based on your preferences. You also can return individual items from any box for a refund.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Here is my invoice. In addition to the retail price of the item, they also include “your price,” which is how much you would get refunded if you wanted to return that item. (Wantable recently introduced individual item returns to their subscriptions. Previously, it was keep the entire box or send the entire box back for a refund).
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. Here’s how my personal preferences are set up.
FACE Stockholm Blush in Blissful – value: $20 (My Price: $9.20)
This blush is a bright, matte pink. It’s pretty pigmented so it’s best to use with a light touch. This is a little too bright to wear a bold lip with (which I love to do in the Fall and Winter), so I’ll probably stash it until summer. (swatch below)
Erin’s Faces Double Sided Eyeshadow Brush – value: $25 (My Price: $11.49)
This brush is nice – double-ended means fewer brushes to keep in my bag. It has quite soft, synthetic bristles as well.
Here’s a swatch of the blush.
‘Tini Beauty Eye Cordial in Frothe – value: $18 (My Price: $8.28)
I received this product last month but in a different color, an olive green. I like this shade a lot, though, because I find it works better as an eye base and also works with a neutral eye look, which is my favorite.
Manna Kadar Lip Locked Lip Stain in Manna Babe – value: $24 (My Price: $11.03)
This lip color is bright! It’s definitely fuschia. I’m impressed with the pigmentation and it’s pretty moisturizing. I think it’s more of a gloss than a stain because I didn’t notice much color stained when I wiped it off. (Swatch below)
Here are swatches of the eye cream/base (top) and the lip stain (bottom).
Here, I’m wearing the blush, eye cream/base, and the lip gloss. The blush definitely needed some good blending out, and I probably wouldn’t wear it with this bright of a cheek with this bright of a lip (I’d probably wear something a little more neutral), but it works okay!
And a close-up. You can see the eye cream/base a little better here. I put it on and blended my crease and corner shades of shadow over it.
Verdict: This was a nice Wantable Makeup box! I love that I know I will wear and use everything. The value of this box adds up to $83.99, which is a value I’m happy with.
