January Wantable Box

YAY for subscription boxes! It's like a little surprise every month. The perfect Pick me up when you are feeling blue. I know that I need that every now and then. I am new to Wantable so I did some research on what they supply in their boxes. Wantable offers 4 to 5 full-sized premium makeup products, hand-picked to perfectly match your likes and dislikes. They also offer an intimates and jewelry box, also customizable.  Wantable also allows you to return the box if you aren’t happy with it. This is a huge plus. Since most others do not give you that option. This post is a bit heavy on pictures. But for great reason. Keep scrolling to see why.

As an added bonus, Wantable does indeed qualify for Ebates! You can use my referral link to sign up if you like. Right now you can receive 10% cash back when you go through Ebates to purchase. Plus, receive ebates cash or a gift card with your first purchase. Hurray for savings! That is an incredible deal.

What is it: Wantable Makeup box (Referral link ;-))
The Cost: $36 a month for subscription, or $40 one time purchase.
The Products: Michael Marcus Prime Foundation Brush ($20), Mistura Beauty 6-in-1 compact ($37), Golden Rose Sexy Black Mascara ($12.99), Starlooks shadow in matte sand ($12), treat & Tint Light Honey Sample.

Total box value: $81.99!


Oh, go on. Seriously, go on. Flattery will get you every where!

How it works: After choosing the subscription, you will be asked several questions to get an idea of what you love and do not love. Answer each as they describe you. You have the option of choosing a monthly box, or just pay a one time fee. The monthly subscription is a few bucks less. Plus, you CAN cancel it. Open up your brand new beauty box and enjoy full sized products.



First Impressions: As soon as I opened the box I was wicked excited that I received a foundation brush. Somehow I went my whole life without knowing about these things. DO not ask me why. I have no clue at this moment what it does or how it works. But I am sure that I will figure it out quickly. Starting the year out fresh, for sure! After reading about the January box you will understand that it is more of a neutral feeling box because it is "getting back to basics". Which I really do not mind since my normal routine is very basic.

Here is a closer look to what was inside my Wantable box.







JANUARY MAKEUP BOX
There's no better way to ring in the New Year than with a fresh new look! We're wiping the slate clean this month and getting back to basics with a focus on a healthy complexion. Achieve a beautiful base with concealers, creams, and primers from Sormé. Add a lit-from-within glow with Mistura's 6-in-1 Beauty Solution compact. Define your eyes with La Bella Donna's pencil and liquid eyeliners, and add a soft wash of color to your pout with lip gloss from DEX New York. Finish off your look with a shimmering polish from ncLA or Color Club and you're ready to greet the new year with a beautiful new you!

Wantable ships via USPS First Class. Which is amazing!! I was so excited to get it that I just could not wait.
Cards are printed on regular paper and include a little about the box and detailed product. But this way, you get what you like, and nothing that you don't! Unlike some of the other beauty boxes you do get more bang for your buck. It does cost more than some. But for that, you get even MORE full sized products. Full sized is always better. Better is better! Plus, they often do have sales and promotions. Be sure to like their pages at the bottom of this post to stay up to date on that.

    1. I have a confession. I have not purchased mascara in years. I rarely wear it. I'm in love with the Golden Rose Mascara. It is so easy to put on.

  5. I have been dying to try Wantable, I just have not heard much about them and was not sure if I would like it or not. After seeing this I think I would like it. :) Thanks for the review!

  6. Seems like a bit much to pay for subscription boxes BUT once you realize the value you get each month...it's so worth it!

    1. I do agree with you. I know of some that are under $20 a month. But with that, you do get what you pay for. Those boxes do not always contain full size products. Also, are not as customizable like Wantable.

  8. What made you choose to do the make up over the accessories or intimates? I seriously love makeup surprises. I would probably wear or use everything you received. Good makeup brushes are key!

    1. Hi Debbie. That is a excellent question. I agree that all of the Wantable boxes are excellent, and some will cater to others more. I felt that the makeup box was more my style. I don't usually wear any accessories and I am a mother of three. Who has time for anything intimate related? Not me. ;-)

      I felt the makeup box would be a great choice because I always loved makeup. There are so many different brands out there that getting to try some I never heard of sounded like a fantastic opportunity.

  9. Wow, this looks great!! I can't believe you get full size products - what a fabulous deal!

  10. Nice that you get stuff you like and that they are full size items.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I like that you can return it if you aren't satisfied. I wonder if they have natural products?

    ReplyDelete
  12. This is a good value esp. since you can return it. I have had problems returning boxes before.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow I have been wanting to try this! Sounds amazing!

    Thanks for the Post, Pictures, and the Review!

  14. wow so its full size products! i have had my eye on wantable for a while now. thanks for the review!

  15. That was seriously a helpful review! I like that you get full sized products, that you can actually send back if you don't like it, AND qualifies for ebates. That's a triple win! Thanks for the info and review!

  16. I loved the foundation brush you got! Actually, this morning I was thinking that I need to get more makeup brushes in general. Now I'm convinced. :-)

  17. Everything is so nice...I love that it is customizable and it is a decent price.

  18. I love seeing reviews because I have only tried their Intimates box. Glad to see the things they provide in their makeup boxes! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have gotten two of their intimates boxes and although I returned one as I got such an eclectic mix of colors and styles that was not me despite my profile choices which are very classic..... But I'm still loving wantable and absolutely love how you can return a box if you don't like it. If every sub box did this I'd have tried out a lot more.....I would love to try their makeup box, you got some great items and yes it was worth it, great value for the pricepaid! Thanks for the great review!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh that is a good value for the brush, mascara, and compact. I would love to see how the 6-in-1 compact works. and if the mascara spoolie does anything special.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think I'm more interested in their intimates box. It seems like such a great deal since you get underwear, bras, tank tops and more. I would love to get a little "pick me up" each month.

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is awesome! I would love to get this box every month!

    ReplyDelete
  23. WOW! I prefer the intimates box but you got some great stuff! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Good review. I've heard of this before but didn't know exactly how it worked. Sounds like a good value.

    ReplyDelete
  25. This looks awesome! I have never heard of Wantable before but I really really want to try it now! :)

  26. I have never worn any makeup so this might be away to get into it. But I would really like to see the quality of the asessory box.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think that these boxes are wonderful and would love the opportunity to try them

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is such an uplifting surprise to get in the mail every month!

    ReplyDelete
  29. oh wow how exciting!! was that, who wouldn't want to receive one of these every month or every other month.. thanks for share @tisonlyme143

  30. I did not even pick up a makeup brush until I was 35 years old. Now I'm kind of obsessed with them. I never knew how much better your makeup could look using brushes instead of the little foam applicators they supply you in eyeshadows. This looks like a great box. You absolutely get your money's worth with Wantable. I wish I had the money to try all three of their boxes.

  31. I would love to try one of these maybe more if I like them

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have heard about Wantable from many bloggers and it seems like a good subscription program but they are a little too expensive for me.

    ReplyDelete
  33. This subscription box looks very nice! I think it was worth it.
