Monthly subscription boxes are all the rage now. Everything from toys to food to accessories can be shipped to your door in a box filled with surprises. Several companies are going straight after a woman’s heart with makeup boxes. Do you live for lipstick or refuse to leave the house without eyeliner? Then you should probably read on to learn more about what you can receive in your box full of surprises monthly.
Wantable provides you with 4-5 pieces of some of the trending makeup styles and tools. The items shipped out to you are based on a quiz you take when you first subscribe to the service. The quiz runs you through various types of makeup preferences for the eyes, lips and face. Each box you receive is accompanied by a description of the items you have received along with your lists of preferences, categorized by loves, likes, and dislikes.
I received 4 Full-size items in my box (and a sampler*)…..A brush, eyeshadow, nail wraps, lip gloss, and skin tightener/line filler*.

Once again I am a bit puzzled about the selection process in comparison to my preferences as I was with my accessories box. For starters I specifically stated that I disliked Bronzer and Complexion Products, so I don’t know why I would receive a Foundation Brush with the exception of “Love” tools. Yes, I love nail polish, but nail wraps? They look interesting and like a fun new thing to try! The lip gloss and eye shadow are spot on.
So here is the good, bad and ugly:
The Brush – Sturdy brush for the application of foundation. I wish they would have sent a lip or eye liner “tool”. In fact, I was thinking more along the lines of tweezers, or nail clippers, when I clicked Love for tools. Not sure what I can use this for. Yes it’s a tool, but not a tool I will need. I am shocked by the $36 ARV. Do brushes really cost this much? And what is Taklon anyhow?
The Eye Shadow – Superb color. Love the glimmer of it. Can’t wait to use it. Nice compact size for a full size and fits right into my pocket. This will look fabulous for Christmas.
The Nail Wraps – In line with nail care and polish, these wraps love like a fun and quick way to color your nails. The pattern of this one in particular leaves much to be desired. It’s too loud for my use, but I am sure my friend will love them.
The Lip Gloss – I love it! Such a great color and easy to apply. I hope Em doesn’t try to steal it from me. Definitely an everyday type of gloss.
The Filler – Samples are always great. It will be cool to see how this works. Getting older stinks and I am not one to opt for any kind of elective surgery. I need natural products that solve the problems of aging.
So what does it cost for this box of accessories? You can order just one box or subscribe. Subscribers can cancel or skip a month anytime, no questions asked. You can even send a gift subscription to a friend!
One time $40
Monthly Subscription $36 ($4 savings off one time)
All in all I received items with a total ARV of $83. That makes the savings over 50% off retail prices. I am hesitant to try new styles, so getting items that are different are a great way to introduce myself to new things. Receiving this box was like receiving a surprise birthday gift. So why not celebrate YOU on a monthly basis and treat yourself to a monthly subscription. It’s time to discover the new you!
Wantable does have a no hassle return policy, so if you don’t like an item, simply return it. Shipping on all monthly boxes is always free. So what are you waiting for? Check out Wantable and get your subscription started here.
