Wantable Makeup Subscription Box Review – June 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 ($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.
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).

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.
Previously I was 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.
Bodyography Cream Shadow in Glimmer – Value $20 (My Price $8.70)
I like the coppery shimmer of this eye shadow cream, and it is richly pigmented too. (Swatched in the bottom picture).
Chella Water Resistant Mascara – Value $25 (My Price $10.87)
This mascara formula gave great lash definition (absolutely no clumping issues), but it didn’t give the amount of volume and length I want in a mascara.
Doucce Lip Gloss in Lush – Value $22 (My Price $13.91?)
On my invoice it says I should have received the Au Naturale Organic Creme Highlighter stick instead of this lip gloss, so I’m not sure if the “my price” is correct. The formula is pretty good for a lip gloss – a hint of shine, a good amount of color, and not too sticky.
Pout Shout Lip Gloss in Well Red – Value $15 (My Price $6.52)
This lip gloss is super pigmented – it gives a deep red look! The formula isn’t too shiny, and not sticky either.
Here is a swatch of both lip glosses and the eye shadow:
Verdict: I think I would have preferred the box listed on my invoice instead of getting two lip glosses in this box, so I’d say this is just an OK Wantable Makeup box for me. The value is about $82, and I’m happy with that though.
What do you think of the Wantable Makeup subscription box?
