I got an e-mail from Wantable the other day saying that they were sending me a November make-up box to review and I was instantly excited. I bought a box last month and loved what they had picked for me. Wantable is a bit different than most other subscription boxes in that you can return the items if you aren’t totally 100% happy. You just go into your account, go to your order history and click “Return Items” and you’ll get a prepaid label and a full refund. I love that!

The Box

Wantable ships via USPS First Class and only took a few days to get to me.  I knew it was coming, but I hadn’t been tracking it.

First Look

I wasn’t totally thrilled by the first look.  I think it’s because my October box was so fabulous?  I shouldn’t really compare because that’s not totally fair.  That box was just so great for me it would be hard to replicate!

Wantable has the most thorough questionnaire of any box out there.  You tell them what products you “Love”, “Like” and “Dislike” and they will send you more of your “Love” items than your “Like” items, but they will never send you any of your “Dislike” items.  You also give color preferences, etc. in your profile.  I didn’t update my survey for November and it looks like they added a new category “Complexion Products”.  It ended up in my Dislike since I didn’t take the survey, but I need to go in and change that because I would love to try some.

Wantable doesn’t include a fancy information card on heavy card stock because every box is customized.  The Wantable November box, which was a collaboration with Jackie Aina, includes lots of new brands including smooth eyeshadows and cream blushes from Girlactik, a 6-in-1 beauty compact from Mistura, True Color Lip Creams from Beauty for Real, DEX New York lipsticks and glosses and Starlooks products to make your eyes sparkle.  Here is what I received:

~Brazen Cosmetics Loose Blush (Amorous) ($17.99): I love this color because it’s kind of glowy and you can apply as much or as little as you like.  I just out on a little to try it which I think works best for me.  And I still love the little Brazen wax seal they include on all of their stuff.

~Girlactik Beauty Heaven’s Dust Angel Gold ($19):  Ohh, this is fun!  I have never seen or heard of this brand before, but this product is super fun. It’s a fine powder that can be dusted on your skin to get that magical holiday glow.  Love this!

~Skiin Soothing & Smoothing Eye Cream Sample:  I used this sample yesterday and do think that it helped a little with the puffiness.  I was also super tired yesterday, so the puffiness was extra noticeable as well.  I would try this again for sure.

~Lise Watier Duo Shadow and Glitter Smokey Silver ($26): Now this is fun!  It’s a creme shadow and a glitter powder shadow all housed in the same gorgeous container.  This is awesome for the holidays and every time I get something from Lise Watier I am struck by the beauty of the packaging.

All totaled by November Wantable box had a value of $62.99, which is well over the $36/month (or $40/month one time only purchase) price tag.  However , I was disappointed that I only received three items.  They used to send 4-5 full sized items monthly (I got 5 last month) and now it’s 3-4 full sized items.  I did really enjoy the products I received, but I think a nail polish or a lip gloss would have rounded out this box perfectly.  Still I probably would not have returned the box had I purchased it on my own since I did enjoy the products I received. ETA (11.4.13).  Wantable has announced they will revert to sending 4-5 products as they had in the past and will no longer be including 3-4 items.

    ah! I hope that wantable box doesn’t sell out before I have the chance to get it.

    1. Jennifer

      Which one are you thinking?

  2. Jenny

    I like your box but it does look lacking? Are they switching everyone to 3-4 items? Its a pricy box so I probably won’t keep if not at least 4 items. I like getting the 5. The shadow glitter you got looks fun though.

    1. Jennifer

      I checked the website and it says 3-4 now? Not sure when it switched from 4-5?? Do you have a box coming this month? I can’t wait to see what you get. And the glitter shadow duo is fun!

      1. Mel

        I noticed that switch too. I’m pretty sure it used to be 4-5. I’m not sure when that happened.

        1. Jennifer

          I don’t know either??

    2. Laura

      It happened at the beginning of this month, I ordered my first box a few weeks ago when the web site clearly said 4-6, and 3 items and a sample showed up in my box. I sent a polite email and was told I hadn’t read the web site. Sneaky devils had changed it!

      I love the customization, but it’s no longer worth it to me. Needless to say I returned my box.

      1. Jennifer

        That’s not fair if you ordered when it said 4-6 ;(.

  3. Mel

    I got that Girlactik powder too and I love it! It’s so pretty! That Lise Watier looks really nice too! I kind of hope they’ll put it in my next box. I’m a sucker for sparkly things. 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      The Lise Watier is gorgeous. And the packaging is amazing!

    Does Wantable ever have any deals or discounts? Been wanting to try it, but it is a little pricey, especially if you only get 3 items!

    1. Jennifer

      If you sign up for their e-mails, they do send codes!

    I requested the holiday after seeing this. It helps that sleep masks are a must for me. I chose the gold set.

    1. Jennifer

      Do you find that you sleep better wearing a sleep mask? I would like to sleep better, but I have a hard time with it touching my face at night!

      1. Bonnie

        I worked 3rd shift for years, but even now that I finally got on 1st my room is too bright. There is a street light right outside my window, which is also my plant window as it gets great morning light. I’ve gotten used to sleeping with one on, so I do sleep better. Some are better than others.

    This is the second box in a row that I haven’t been happy with the items. Nov. was first time item was missing and I got something not on the info. sheet. I like being able to return it. I think I’ll be canceling.

    1. Jennifer

      My December box is shipping this week and I am quite anxious to see what they do! I am happy they decided to go back to the 4-5 items per box!
