Wantable Makeup Box – August Review

Wantable Makeup Box - August Review

I was very excited when I finally decided to order the Wantable Makeup Box. It always gets positive reviews and since the Accessories Boxes I've received have been pretty satisfying, I thought for sure the Makeup Box would be great!

Wantable has 3 different subscription boxes to choose from - Makeup, Accessories and now an Intimates Box. This box sold out very fast and if you order now you will get the October box. I’m really looking forward to that one!

In the Makeup Box you can expect 4 to 6 full-size premium makeup products, hand-picked to perfectly match your preferences.

Cost: $36 / month or $40 one time purchase

Michael Marcus Eyeshadow (Trashy)

Michael’s cake liners are smudge, heat, and humidity resistant and once dry will remain indelible and flake-free to keep you looking flawless!

I think my product info sheet was wrong. It said this was an eyeliner, but I suppose you can use it as one too. Looks like a great product, my only problem is the colour. I don’t find this shade of grey complimentary to my eye colour.

Michael Marcus Brow Pencil (Brunette)

Michael Marcus Brow Pencil (Brunette)

Michael’s brow pencils are a revolutionary creamy formula that allows you to avoid the dreaded “drawn on” eyebrow look.

The suggested use is to colour the brush on the cap with the pencil, then replace the cap and run the brush through your brows to evenly disperse the product. This sounds like a good technique. I find with most pencils it doesn’t go on as natural as I like, so doing it this way sounds like a good approach.

Three Custom Color Simply Beautiful Lip Gloss Pot

Three Custom Color Simply Beautiful Lip Gloss Pot

We blended pink and peach, (cool and warm shades that both brighten the face) then added equal parts silver and gold, for a gorgeous light-catching shimmer. For a little “oomph!” we made it slightly darker than the natural color of the lip, and voila - Simply Beautiful!

I really like this colour, perfect for fall. I found it goes on pretty sheer, but you can build colour by adding more layers.

Japonesque Travel Smudger Brush

Japonesque Travel Smudger Brush

Designed with the professional in mind, Japonesque beauty products are precision crafted, using only the highest quality materials. Smudger Brush is perfect for smudging edges, softening lines, and blending out color.

I think this will be useful since I don’t like hard lines. I’m always trying to get that perfectly blended smoky eye. I don’t have a brush quite like this one, so I’m hoping it will do a good job.

Echo Vie Organic Body Oil

Echo Vie Organic Body Oil

This luxurious mixture of organic jojoba and sesame oils absorbs deep into the skin to restore moisture, keeping it youthful and radiant. This oil is naturally healing and is loaded with potent antioxidants and vitamin E. It is infused with 10 premium essential oils that naturally uplift, relieve fatigue, stress and anxiety.

This has almost a masculine scent. I’m not crazy about it, but will still use it.

I love that the products were full size. Unfortunately as great as these products are, this box just didn’t do it for me. This could be an amazing box for someone else, but I wasn’t “wowed” by anything. I will get use out of some of the products, but overall I was kind of disappointed. I’m not sure what I expected since I did say these were products I liked in my profile. Maybe I’ll adjust my profile and hopefully that does the trick. Wantable is still a great subscription box with some awesome customer service. You never know I might get the makeup box again in the future, but for now I’m super excited to get their new Intimates Box! What do you think of Wantable? Have you subscribed to any of their boxes? Let me know what you think.
