Wantable Makeup Box Review - December 2013 Preferences

For reference these are my preferences I have set for my account. They will never send you anything in your Dislike column. (I put eyeliner as a dislike only because I have so many of them!)

Wantable Makeup Box Review - December 2013 Color Club

Color Club Nail Polish in Soft as Cashmere – Value $8

Mia Bellezza Blush in Captive – Value $16.50

Wantable tends to send out a lot of Color Club polish – but that’s totally fine with me, I love their polish! (It’s the longest-lasting formula I’ve come across).

Wantable Makeup Box Review - December 2013 Brow Pencil

Billion Dollar Brows Universal Pencil – Value $18

Star Looks Lengthening Mascara – Value $16

This brow pencil will definitely come in handy as a backup, but now I’m going to change my Wantable profile to request no more brow pencils – I’m full stocked thanks to them!

Wantable Makeup Box Review - December 2013 Eye Shadow Brush

Japonesque Travel Smudger Brush – Value $14.50

Skiin Soothing & Smoothing Eye Cream – Sample

Verdict: I paid $36 for this box and received almost $75 worth of full size makeup. I think I need to play around with my profile a little more to make this subscription as exciting as my Wantable Intimates subscription.

What did you get in your December Wantable Makeup box?

  1. I ordered the accessory box and was delighted. The softest scarf I ever held, lighter than cashmere, great gift for my daughter in Boston. Necklace was awesome, earring meh. I have enough makeup; reading the reviews, I’ll stick with accessories.

  2. I got that brush last month. I actually wanted to keep it. But I couldn’t justify it as I wanted to send the most expensive items back but I would still not get a refund.

    I received a very different box than you this month, again, I forgot to put it on hold. I barely took a look inside but could tell there is was nothing I wanted and will be sending this one back too. Oh well.

    I will be sure to hold next month.

    Now of course I got pop sugar canceled and that is one of my favs 🙁

  3. IMO -Starlooks is horrible makeup. That particular mascara, I’ve tried, it’s the worst I’ve ever used. So, i gave it to my daughter, and she too said it was horrible. It is very dry and your lashes will dry before you’re even done coating the lashes. The only thing that is ‘average’ at Starlooks is their eyeshadow, basically everything else is not good, plus it’s full of the bad stuff like parabens.

  4. Not excited about the addition of star looks products!!!!

    • StarLooks, NYX, and Be a Bombshell seems to be in every box lately! :/
