Wantable Makeup Subscription Box Review – February 2015
Wantable is a monthly subscription service that has 3 different plans: Makeup, Accessories, and Intimates. (Plus a styling service for Fitness clothing similar to Stitch Fix in the try-then-buy model) 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.
I used to get very specific with this list, but I’ve found that I have better luck at high-value boxes when fewer things are on my dislike list.
And here’s my order summary.
Bodyography Expressions Eyeshadow in Seafoam – Value $17
This blush is cream in the pot and designed to have a powder-like finish. I was expecting it to be highly pigmented, but it’s actually a pretty soft pink, you’d have to apply a lot to get the color seen in the picture. It also has a subtle shine which I like.
This eyeshadow is a pressed powder with a good amount of pigment. I wasn’t too crazy about the seafoam color at first, but it blends well, and has an iridescent quality about it that looks nice as a highlighter.
This porcelain shade of this powder is borderline too light for me, but it still works. The finish is light-to-medium coverage, so that helps with getting the color to match my skin tone.
Billion Dollar Brows Brow Duo Pencil – Value $18
This pencil is a highlighter and concealer combo. The concealer shade is perfect for my skin tone, and the highlighter is a very pigmented highlighter so I have to use it very sparingly. (I initially tried just drawing a highlighter line below my brow planning on blending it in, and ended up with what can best be described as ghost brows).
Verdict: This was a good Wantable Makeup box for me – I’ll use everything. The value is about $81 – more than double the cost. One thing I like about Wantable Makeup is that I think they are one of the only beauty boxes that send full-size foundation products custom to your skin tone.
What do you think of Wantable Makeup? Are you happy with the makeup you’ve received?
