Wantable offers three types of subscriptions: Accessories, Make Up and Intimates. All boxes are priced at $36.00 for a subscription or $40.00 for a one-time purchase, both choices offer free shipping.
If you don’t like the box you received, Wantable allows you to return it. Being able to return your box is an added benefit that most subscription companies don’t offer. Additionally, should you desire to skip a month or cancel Wantable provides the option to do so.
Wantable offers the opportunity to complete a style profile for each type of box. The style profile works this way – you are shown a picture of an item and rate it on a sliding scale ranging from love it to dislike it. Based on your ratings, Wantable is able to send items you truly desire and you are not left receiving something which does not match your taste or style. I assume this also keeps their returns to a minimum.
I started experimenting with make up in middle school but it wasn’t until high school that I started wearing make up everyday. Even now, years after high school and college I still love playing with make up. With age, you tweak your style, learn new tips and and evolve into wearing make up that best suits you. Even on days that I am staying home I still put on a little make up to make me feel better and it works every time.
After filling out my make up profile on Wantable, I was anxious to see what they would send for such a fair-skinned girl like myself. To their credit, every product sent was a perfect fit for my coloring!
The first item I pulled out of my box was a compressed mineral blush from La Bella Donna. It has a lovely warm peach hue which will high light my cheek bones nicely for the Spring and Summer months. This mineral blush is lightweight and formulated to give your cheeks a healthy and all natural glow. ($27.00 La Bella Donna )
Next out of my box was eyeliner from Cailyn Cosmetics. This black eyeliner pencil has the intensity of a liquid liner with the ease of a pencil. I tried this out and it has a nice rich black color making my eyes pop out quite nicely. ( $7.00 Cailyn Cosmetics)
Normally, I am a lip balm person for every day use but I do put on lipstick when I have something to do or attend an event. My third item was a nice subtle apricot color lipstick from DEX New York called Court Street Apricot. This color is perfect for everyday wear and I may even start wearing lipstick a bit more often then usual. ($22.00 DEX New York)
Of all the different types of make up on the market, I probably spend the most amount of money on mascara. If you are anything like me, you’ve spent a good time searching for a mascara that flatters your lashes, doesn’t clump and is reasonably priced. Right now, I switch back and forth between two mascaras – one on the higher end of price spectrum and the other, the low end and have been using them religiously for years. The last item in my box was black Extreme Volumizing Mascara from Sorme. This mascara helps your lashes get a full maximum look while it conditioning and strengthening. Extreme Volumizing Mascara contains Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E- all designed to nourish your lash. I did give this a try over the weekend and I was pleasantly surprised, it did not clump or smear and my lashes truly looked fuller. ($19.00 Sears)
This box retailed $75.00, an excellent deal (more than double) for the subscription price of $36.00. This is make up that I will use and look forward to wearing.
