Wantable Beauty Box Subscription Review!

I know what your thinking, another beauty box! I'm obsessed with these monthly beauty subscriptions. However, Wantable has a little bit of a different concept. They offer a few alternatives when creating your account with them and there is much more personalization!

International Shipping Info: Wantable had recently only shipped to the US, but have recently announced that they are going to ship to Canada, and Australia! The boxes are typically small enough to fit inside a standard mailbox, and they will be shipping with Canada Post for Canadians, (or Australia Post for Australia). The boxes are trackable, and shipping is an extra $5 for Canada, and $9 for Australia. All taxes, duties, and handling fees will be clearly charged at checkout, so nothing is paid at the door upon arrival.

First of all, you have the option to decide between a Jewelry Box, or Makeup Box. I have not yet seen a subscription service that offers both of these. Pictured below is a preview or example of items you may, or may not get.

The Jewelry Box contains "4-5 boutique jewelry pieces, hand picked to perfectly match your preferences".
The Makeup Box contains "4-6 full size premium makeup products, hand picked to perfectly match your preferences".
Both boxes are valued between $80 - $100, and includes some tips and tricks for wear/application.

When signing up, Wantable will provide you with a short quiz so they are able to match you with suitable products. I know many beauty box subscriptions claim to do this, but I have a little more faith in Wantable. From what I have seen, people are highly impressed with what they are sent and the same products are not sent to everyone.

You are then given the option to purchase a one time box for $40, or begin a monthly subscription for $36. The monthly subscription, can be either skipped or cancelled. This attracts me, because I would have loved this option for some of my previous subscriptions.

Okay, I have a ton of pictures, so let's get on with those and first impressions of the products! (Wait! Please take into account that I just got a new camera, and if some of the colours are a bit off, I do apologize. I don't quite know how to properly use it yet!)

My box came with a velvet pouch with all of the products inside, a card and a product info sheet.

All 6 of the items in my box!

Besame Brightening Violet Powder: "A translucent loose powder that adds brightness, sets make-up, and leaves a soft matte finish. Made in USA, Paraben free, for all skin tones." $22
I really enjoy this powder and not just because it smells like lavender! It is a light faded purple in colour, and goes on the skin clear. It mattifies my skin perfectly and helps control my oil. The packaging is so pretty and classic, I couldn't stop playing with the box :p The clear plastic lid holds the powder from escaping when the lid is on which really minimizes the fear you have of getting the product all over you when opening a loose powder! I would definitely purchase this in the future as I seem to have a lot of fun using it. Keep scrolling for swatches.

Three Custom Color Specialists Mini Pressed Powder in Cool Bronzer: "Finely milled powder appropriate for all skin types, minimizing shine while providing sheer breathable coverage. For a fuller application try the same shade in loose form." $22.50
I found this to be pretty pigmented when first applied but a little hard to build the colour (oh, that explains why, it is suppose to be a bit sheer). It was less orange than my NYC Sunny but not as brown as my Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (In Original Chocolate). It is matte, which I was happy about, and I also liked that it is a pressed powder. It is definitely suitable for lighter skin tones but the price for size is quite pricey (5.7g, it's a little more than half the size of a Too Faced Bronzer). Keep scrolling for swatches.

Face Stockholm Pearl Eyeshadow in 45 (Lightest Apricot): "Can be mixed and matched to shade, shadow, and define. Hyper-pigmented for long lasting colour. Made in USA" $19
This is such a pretty pearl pink which has gold sparkles giving it that duo-chrome look. I thought it showed up very nicely and pigmented over my Mirabella Face & Eyes Primer. I definitely think this can be used as a blush as well, if you want a bit of a highlight too and you don't mind the sparkles. I wish I had received more of a neutral colour though because I don't typically wear pink on my lids. Keep scrolling for swatches.

Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner in Black: "Offers perfectly smooth glide lines. Water resistant. Smudge-proof. 24 hour wearing. Safe for sensitive eyes. Made in USA" $21
This liner glides on easily, is easy to work with, and the brush was super soft when I first opened it. I have sensitive eyes and this gives me no issues. It is not the deepest black, but I like this for a more natural or less harsh look. The packaging is a bit bulky. It's twice the size of my Annabelle Smudge Paints but also has twice the amount of product! I don't find it to be 24 hour wearing, although it does last throughout the day with minimal fading, and once it sets it doesn't smudge or budge!

Mia BelleZZa Automatic Long Lasting Eyeliner in Indigo 05: "Colour that will show all day without smudging, fading, or smearing. Requires no sharpening. With aloe vera and chamomile." $16.50
I hate twist up liners as they hurt my eyes but this went on smoother than expected. This is the only item I am a little disappointed with. It smudged instantly to the touch and didn't really set. I do love the colour however. Be aware, not to twist this all the way up, as it does not twist back down!

LA Fresh Travel-Lite Makeup Remover Wipes: "Can easily remove the most stubborn makeup and leave your sin immaculate in one easy step. Moisturizing formula with Vitamin E. Made in USA" $1.35, Reg. 3 Packets for $2
I am glad to receive these because I always hear about them. The only downside is that I realized they have Mineral Oil in them, and the ingredients seem likely to break out my skin. Will have to give it a try.
Total Approx. Value: $102.35!

Bisame Brightening Violet Powder, Three Custom Color Specialists in Cool Bronzer, Face Stockholm Pearl Eyeshadow in 45 (Lightest Apricot), Cailyn Gel Liner in Black, MiA BelleZZa Eyeliner in Indigo
Swatched over bare skin

I was super excited when I received this, as all the items were makeup products I will actually put to use. I actually use the Besame Violet Powder, Three Custom Color Specialists Bronzer, and Cailyn Liner on a daily basis since receiving them! Also, these were all brands I either have never heard of, or were unfamiliar with, which I like when receiving a beauty box. I also noted which products were made in USA, and the majority of them surprisingly were.

There is such product variety because Wantable hand-picks the products just for you. The Wantable team is quite small, with about 14 developers, designers, marketers, and entrepreneurs. They also have recognized stylists and beauty experts who, If I am not mistaken work alongside them to choose unique products. 

What did you think of this box? Will you or have you already subscribed to Wantable?
