Wantable Makeup Box Review – November 2013

Wantable Makeup Box Review - November 2013

If you are new to Wantable, it’s a highly customizable full-size makeup subscription. It’s pricer than most beauty boxes ($36), but the value has always been great for me, and I love that you can make sure you only get products you want!

Color Club Polish in Baldwin Blues – Value $8

Billion Dollar Brows Clear Brow Gel – Value $16

I am always happy to see Color Club Nail Polish in a subscription box. They have the best nail polish formula – it’s super long lasting!

Michael Marcus Shadow Primer – Value $24

Skiin Beauty Bonus Sample

I just bought the Stila Eye Primer Pot a few days ago, so I think this Michael Marcus one will have to wait!

Verdict: I paid $36 for this box and received $66 worth of full size makeup products. I’m happy with the value and I’ll use all the full size items!

What did you think of Wantable this month?

  1. Wantable Boxes includes the following brands: Cailyn Cosmetics, 29, Be A Bombshell, and Michael Marcus yet somehow Wantable describes their products as full-sized and ‘premium.’ The aforementioned brands are also included in Ipsy bags and/or Lip Factory Boxes. It doesn’t seem like Wantable is really a cut above the other beauty subscriptions. Wantable simply provides the customer with less product and charge more money than the other beauty subscriptions.

    • Update: Be A Bombshell product appeared in the Beauty Box 5 package that arrived in my mailbox today. For about the same money – a girl can get BB5 @ $8.25 + Lip Factory @ $22 + Ipsy @ $10 (or $8.25 + $26 + $14.95 for Canadians) every month for just about the same money as one Wantable box. One box or three… which would you prefer?

  2. Good box. Mine ships about the 21st each month so I’m anxious to see what I get. I keep playing around with my questionnaire each month so I never really know what I’ll get but so far I’ve loved all my items.
