Wantable February 2014 Makeup Box | Unboxing and Review*

February 21, 2014

Hi lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful week and an even better weekend ahead!

Today I bring you guys an unboxing and review of a unique subscription service. So without further adieu, let’s get started!

Wantable | A Beautiful New Thing

Wantable, Inc is a growing startup in Milwaukee, Wisconsin that launched in August of 2012 to give customers hand picked, curated, boutique makeup, accessories and intimates in a monthly subscription box. We offer full-sized products and focus on being a discovery platform, which means that every box we send is different based on each customer’s unique profile. Our subscription is $36/month or customers can purchase a single box for $40. Shipping is always free and you can cancel, return, or skip a month at any time!” — Wantable

Wantable offers three different subscription services:

Makeup: 4 to 5 luxury brand items per personalized box

Accessories: 3 to 4 on-trend pieces per personalized box

Intimates: 4 to 5 premium essentials per personalized box

They also curate Limited Edition boxes!

At the moment, they have a limited edition box that my dear friend, Dani from Coffee Break With Dani on YouTube, helped curate. She handpicked several jewelry pieces to be featured in the Accessories box for February. Today is the last day to order your February Accessories box, so what are you waiting for!? 

They work with brands like Coobie, NCLA, Betsey Johnson, FACE Stockholm (sold at JCrew!), Color Club, Besame, Kibys, LAQA & Co, Glam Natural, Soxxy, and more!

Okay, so let’s see what goodies Wantable sent me in my February Makeup Box!

Face Stockholm Nail Polish in Want-A-Blue | $12.00

Isn’t the color amazing!? It’s a grey-blue, cream polish that applies smoothly and it is not streaky. I think I have found my go-to spring nail color! I’ve gotten so many compliments on it.

LAQA & Co Fat Lip Pencil in Bossy Boots | $18.00

I’ve received LAQA & Co in different subscription services and I have been very impressed with their lip pencils. They are a bit sheer but can be built up for a bolder color, like most lip pencils, this has a light minty smell to it. 

The smooth buttery texture coats lips in a stunning, glossy wine-hued shade.

MiA BelleZZa The Ultimate Eye Pencil in Dark Brown | $21.50

Many of you know that I am all about eyebrows! So when I saw this in my box I was delighted! Doesn’t the packaging remind you of the Anastasia Brow Whiz packaging? I’ve used this pencil once, and I’m already in LOVE! 

La Bella Donna Moonlight Cream-to-Blush in Moonlight | $30.00

This luminous, creamy lightweight mineral based blush can also be used as a highlight. I have been applying it lightly to my cheekbones and it gives off such a pretty glow. 

Sorme Treat & Tint | Sample

Lastly, I received a sample packet of Sorme’s BB Cream, which contains argan oil and SPF 30. I haven’t tried my sample yet, but it claims to be lightweight with light coverage. Definitely keep an eye out for a quick review of this BB cream over on my Instagram page! 

Total value of my box: $81.50 

Well worth the money!

One of my favorite things about Wantable, is that everything is customizable to YOUR wants and needs. The questionnaire filled when signing up is very thorough and detailed. 

For instance, I have plenty of eyeliners and don’t like receiving bronzers in subscription boxes because I’m quite fair…so in my questionnaire I made sure to hit the dislike button. Sure enough, I didn’t get any of that, instead I received things that I hit the love button for.

Another amazing thing! If you aren’t satisfied with your box, simply return it! Or you can also skip months without having to get placed in a waiting line the following month. Amazing, right?! 

I hope you lovelies enjoyed this quick unboxing and review of Wantable’s February 2014 Makeup Box.
