Wantable Box Review

Hi guys!  I have a fun review for you today.  I was contacted by *Wantable which is a new to me monthly box subscription.  They are different then other box subscriptions however.  They offer 3 different customizable boxes depending on your preferences (with a bonus Halloween box available now).  They offer a makeup box, along with an accessories and intimates (panties and more) box.  I chose the makeup box.

They ask LOTS of questions to figure out your makeup preferences, because they don't want to include items you won't use.  We all know most subscription boxes include things we will never use!

The box came AMAZINGLY packaged.  It had a layer of eggshell type foam on the bottom, along with another layer of foam, with ANOTHER eggshell layer on the top.  NOTHING in the box was moving.

It also comes with an invoice that tells you the retail price of the items.  On the other side it gives you detailed information on each of the products.

Japonesque Travel Smudger Brush retails for $14.50.  I was excited to see this in the box as I've wanted this brush FOREVER!

29 Cosmetics Reserve Moisturizing Lipstick in Lightly Crushed retails for $25.00.  I've never actually heard of his makeup brand before, but the tube feels really fancy.  It's nice and heavy weight with 29 imprinted on the lid.  I actually really like the color as it's pretty neutral on me.  But man the smell!  Whew!  It smells like old fashioned lipstick and TOTALLY reminds me of middle school when I would steal my moms lipstick.  

Lies Watier Solo Eyeshadow in Vert Cosmique retails for $18.00.  I've never used any cosmetics from this brand before, then again I don't think I've ever seen it sold around here.  I have actually heard of it though.  This product however, was not great.  The pigmentation of this was....not good.  Patchy, and really hard.  Blech. 

Michael Marcus Brow Pencil in Brunette retails for $24.00.  I haven't heard of this brand before ether, but I'm ALWAYS looking for a good prow product.  This product is a little dry, but that's how I like it!  The pencil has a brush on the end, which is always a nice touch.

Jordan Liberty Fake It Lashes in Valley Girl retail for $8.00.  These are really pretty as they are brown lashes which you don't see too often.  I just wish they weren't so long.  I always feel like lashes this long look WAY too fake on me!  But I'll try em!

Skiin Instant Skin Tightener and Line Filler.  This was the only sample item in my box.  First off, can I say I LOVE this sample container?  There's probably a couple uses in this sample, and the lid is made in such a way, when you break this sample open, you can turn the cap around and it will seal it.  Haven't seen this kind of sample before, cool!

Swatches, in case you wanted to see em!

Now, onto the deets.  This box is a bit more expensive than other subscription boxes, but you get 4-6 full size products.  The subscription is $36.00 or you can buy a one time box for $40.00.  And since you take a survey where they specifically ask what products you won't use, you know you will use what they send.  Though I was a bit disappointed that they didn't send any polish when I put it pretty high on my list.  Oh well!

I'm really impressed by this subscription box, but will admit, that it's a bit too pricey for me, though this box retailed for $89.50, what a deal!
