Wantable Subscription Box Review!

Hey everyone! You all know I'm a HUGE fan of subscription boxes (if not you can check out my ipsy reviews) and today I'll be reviewing Wantable*! When I was contacted and asked to review one of their boxes I jumped on that chance so fast I think I burned a hole in my keyboard. I've been eyeing their site for quite some time now and I genuinely believe they are one of the best subscription boxes. 

You can pick either a makeup box, accessories box, or intimates box (and sometimes a themed box...they had a Halloween themed one) and then you take an extremely detailed quiz about what you like (and they actually listen!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm pointing my fingers at you ipsy...the queens of not listening)

This is the first subscription box I have come across that ACTUALLY listens to your quiz since every single thing I recieved in the box is something I love and have already used! So I'll definitely continue to use it! In the box you get 5 FULL SIZED products and a little sample of some kind which is great because you don't have a dusty sample box in the corner slowly filling up with unused sample sized things (guilty..)

The box comes beautifully packaged and wrapped nicely so none of the products were broken. I love all the detailing they put into the shows they really take their time and care about their customers.

Michael Marcus Eyeshadow - Uptight$18
Lise Watier Hydra Shine Lip Stain - Fuchsia $20
Besame Lipstick - Red Velvet$22
Now on to the goodies!!!!

LAQA & Co Nail Polish - Chubs This nail polish is AMAZING. It is so sparkly and shimmery and metallic and is opaque in one coat. The brush is pretty long so it gets all the way to the bottom of the bottle (which is always nice but not usually the case) I can really see myself wearing this a LOT with the holiday season coming up

Michael Marcus Nail Polish - Once You Go Matte Another nail polish! But I'm so happy I got this as I've been wanting either a black matte polish or a matte topcoat. I painted my toes with this and it kind of has that leather-look (but is really thin) and is completely opaque in two coats. I LOVE THIS

Michael Marcus Eyeshadow - Uptight This is a great neutral/base/basic eyeshadow shade that I think anyone could use. It's a pink peach color that has some shimmer to it and looks great all over the lid. I've been playing with it lately and find that it looks great with any color palette (browns/blacks/bolder colors) And I like to use it all over my lid as it is only slightly different from my skin tone (and shimmery!) I think it's a pretty good quality eyeshadow too!

Lise Watier Hydra Shine Lip Stain - Fuchsia If you're a lip stain kind of person this ones for you! I was kind of confused at first since hydrating and lip stain don't really go well together in my mind...but it was cleared up after applied. The applicator is a basic felt tip pen (which I usually hate) but SO MUCH PRODUCT comes out of the pen! And by that I mean I don't have to drag it and basically scrape my lips with it to get color payoff which is great! When applied it has a slight sheen to it (like the more liquid chapsticks) that hydrates your lips the first few hours of wear. If you rub at it it doesn't come off at all (but when it's drying in the beginning if you drink a lot it comes off a bit). I was really impressed with this lip stain and it has kind of changed my opinion about them (In a good way!)

Besame Lipstick - Red Velvet holy. moly. this little gem gets its own picture because I'm going to ramble on about this for a while...

first off....WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT PACKAGING? lets just take a moment to admire it... this is such a gorgeous lipstick in so many ways I think I may be in love (is that possible?)

They literally could not have sent me a better lipstick in this box. I pulled it out and was amazed at how beautifully this little baby was packaged and just thought wow that's nice...but is it a good lipstick?

I went clubbing with a bunch of my friends and decided to try it out. Most people pick a no maintenance color...but I end up picking the darkest vampiest red I own haha..I feel braver in the dark clubs. Is it just me?

heres a picture pre-clubbing
As you can see it applied like a dream (oh yeah I even forgot a lipliner since I didn't get ready at my house). So after I applied I realised it was a semi-matte (I say semi because it wasn't drying) finish which is great so it won't slide around my face....

Didn't even look at it except for once in the mirror in the bathroom...didn't bring the lipstick with me....didn't wear a lipliner...was drinking the whole night....and when I got home and went to take my makeup off....IT LOOKED ALMOST EXACTLY LIKE WHEN I APPLIED IT with a HINT of fading in the middle.

If that isn't amazing I don't know what is...everyone who's been clubbing understands me.
I mean...need I say more about this little beaut?

L: Lip Stain Swatch
R: Lipstick Swatch

there were also two cream eyeshadow samples in the box (which I haven't tried yet) in a peachy shade and a more moss green shade by Lise Watier (the same company that made the lip stain).

Cost of the box: $36
Value of the box: $86
Would I buy this box: At this point in time no because I am a starving student on an EXTREMELY tight budget...but boy am I happy I got this
This was the ONLY company to have ever listened to those quizzes you take at the beginning especially since I have already used and loved every single thing in the box. I've NEVER had that happen...there's always one thing that gets shoved to the back of a drawer somewhere.
I honestly did wish I had the money to spend on this box because I thoroughly enjoyed it. Even though it is a bit more money you always get full sized products that you'll actually use. 
Thank you so much Wantable for sending this to me. 


  1. This box looks amazing. I wish we had Wantable here in the UK! Raspberrykiss xo

  2. i liked ipsy too even though i got some duds. it's cheaper but you get smaller products and you may get some stuff you wont use (youll see in my reviews)

    Heyya! I'm wondering how easy was it for you to apply the lipstick in that shape? I've just ordered 2 of the new Benefit ones and they're also the same shape.

    Thanks! Steff Xx

  4. Actually super easy! It really allowed me to get a clean line because I forgot my lip liner haha. You have to figure it out at first but once you get the hang of it it's really easy :)


Thank you for reading and taking the time to comment! I'll try and reply as quickly as I can :)
