Wantable September Box

Saturday, September 14, 2013

I had the chance to review a Wantable Box for you guys. It's a fairly new subscription box that's been around for less than two years, and they ship in the US, Canada, and Australia. They currently have four different boxes to choose from; makeup, accessory, intimates, and Halloween. The box is $36 per month with a subscription, and $40 for a one time buy. Each box is valued at $80 and up.

The great thing is that they're all full sized, but I did receive a little sample as an addition. Upon registration you are directed to complete a series of questions to help personalize your box. The quiz is really specific with options of like, love, and dislike. You will never receive a product that you disliked.   They're separated into categories; eyeshadow, eyeliner, lip, nail polish, etc. Within these categories are even more options such as shimmer, cream, and the type of colors you wear (eyeshadow). Basically anything that would matter.

It shipped that day, and was here in 3 days. I also received an e-mail from Wantable telling me that my box had arrived, which is something that I haven't seen a company do yet.

The products were packaged between two pieces of foam, keeping them all safe. I've only heard of one of these brands, Japonesque. I like getting to know new brands, and it's not seeing the same brands over and over again. After a while it gets a bit repetitive.

Now for the boxes contents (and original cost of each item)

Lise Watier Ombre Soufflé Suprême Sample (Sunrise Peach and Vert enchanté)- $0
Manna Kadar Transfix Eyeliner - $19
Be A Bombshell Bombshell Mascara in Onyx- $15
Japonesque Angled Foundation Brush- $25
29 Cosmetics Reserve Moisurizing Lipstick in Expressive Rose- $25
LAQA & Co. Nail Polish in Blurple- $11

Grand total of $95.

I already played around with the Transfix Eyeliner, and holy cow it is the most fascinating thing ever. Basically you take the brush and dip into an eyeliner, and it becomes a smudge-free eyeliner. Yeah, look out for a review on that. I'm excited to play with it.

OVERALL: Would I recommend this? Yes. It is more expensive than other boxes, but you know you're getting full sized products with every box rather than hoping it's more than a small sample. I can't speak on the quality, I just started trying them out, but I will try my best to review these for you. The packaging sure is nice, so that's usually a positive sign.

How do you feel about subscription boxes? Do you like not really knowing what you're going to get? I feel a bit safer putting my money into a company like Wantable where I know the contents is going to be products that I actually like.
