September Wantable Box Review

Hey everyone!

I recently got the opportunity to review a Wantable box. If you don't know what Wantable is, it is a monthly subscription service. There are 3 different categories to choose from and sometimes they have limited edition boxes for certain seasons. For example, right now they have a Halloween Box which contains makeup products to help you achieve the perfect Halloween look! 


The three main boxes are:

1. Makeup Box

  • 4-6 full-size premium makeup products 
  • The products available change by month! For September, products from Jordan Liberty, Lise Watier, LAQA & Co., Cailyn Cosmetics, and Manna Kadar were available.  

2. Accessories Box

  • 3-4 boutique jewelry pieces

3. Intimates Box

  • 4-5 premium essentials
  • Flirty panties, sporty tanks, essential camis, cozy socks, stylish tights, and comfy soft bras from the leading brands like Jockey, Coobie, Pheel, Argoz, and Muk Luks!
  • *This is a new box! Apparently the September box sold out within 24 hours! Isn't that crazy?!

So how does this work? It's simple! All you do is create an account at wantable.com and choose the category (makeup, intimates, accessories, or a limited edition box) you want to purchase. There will be a questionnaire so that they can learn more about you and your style and what you like and what you don't like- this helps them find the perfect products for YOU! 

Next, you choose whether you want to purchase a one-time box or subscribe for monthly boxes. If you subscribe for monthly boxes, you can always skip a month or cancel without any penalty. Obviously if you purchase the one-time box, you can always subscribe for a monthly subscription later on if you decide you enjoyed the box! *Remember that monthly subscription boxes ship automatically each month- so if you do decide to cancel or skip, do so before the shipment!*

Prices:
Monthly Subscription Box: $36/month
One-Time Box: $40

*Another great thing about Wantable is if you aren't satisfied with the products you received in your box, you can return it for a full refund, no questions asked!

Let's get onto the box, shall we? I chose the makeup box (shocker, right?!) because I clearly have a makeup addiction! I was very pleased with the products I received! I have only heard of one of the products before but I love learning about new brands and I think that subscribing to subscription services is one way of doing that!

Here is just an overview of what I received. I wish I had taken a picture of the packaging because I was amazed at knowledgable they were. They had foam sheets packed inside to ensure there wouldn't be any broken items!

Michael Marcus Brow Pencil in Brunette - ($24)
I've never heard of this brand before but I was super happy to see it in my box! I had been contemplating getting a new product for my brows because I wasn't really satisfied with my current one (ELF brow kit), I just hadn't gotten around to it.


I really like that it has the brush on the end so that you don't have to worry about carrying a brush around with you!



I haven't tested this out with my brows yet, so I'm not sure if the color is going to match (fingers crossed!!)


Here is just a swatch of the brow pencil color.


Lise Watier Solo Eye Shadow Powder in Aubergine - ($18)
I have never heard of this brand either but as soon as I opened the package, I fell in love with the color! It is the PERFECT color for fall! I love me some purples and this was the perfect shade! The eye shadow consistency reminds me a lot of LORAC- it's buttery smooth and glides on your skin perfectly!


The packaging is SUPER cute! :)



Here is a swatch of the beautiful purple eye shadow!


Japonesque Travel Smudger Brush - ($14.50)
This is the only brand I had any knowledge about! I always see their brushes at Ulta! As you can see by the price, they are a tad on the pricey side.. especially for a TRAVEL sized brush! Nevertheless, I know I will enjoy this brush!




Manna Hi Def Mattifying Powder - ($34)
The brand name sounds very familiar but I can't think of any items from them that would ring a bell! I'm really excited to try this powder out! Even though I have dry skin, I am going to use this to set my foundation and concealer so that it will stay in place all day! 



I love that it has a sifter! I'm terrified of having a loose powder without a sifter because knowing my luck, it would be all over me or all over the floor!


The last thing I received was this little sample of Lise Watier Cream Eye Shadow. The two colors I have samples of are Sunrise Peach and Vert Enchant√©. They are both gorgeous colors and I can't wait to try them out! I didn't want to swatch them or else I wouldn't have any product to try out later on! :)

That was everything I got in my box! Like I said before, I am super pleased with these items! I can't wait to try them all out! :) If you are interested in signing up for Wantable, go here. I hope you enjoyed and I will talk to you soon!

  1. This looks like an amazing box! I'd be ecstatic over the HD powder, eye shadow, and smudger brush. All are things I would purchase on my own. Super jealous that you had the opportunity to review them :)

  2. Such an interesting box service, I had never heard of an intimates box!

    You got some really great products, I'm all about filling in my brows, so I'd be really happy with the eyebrow pencil. As well as the other products, the box is pricey, but good thing they use good quality products so you get your money's worth.
