Wantable Box-September 2013

*Press Sample
Hi everyone.  Here is my second post of the day.  A while back I was contacted by a company called Wantable which is a customizable monthly beauty subscription box.  The system for picking products was actually really cool.  You start off with broad categories like lipstick, nail polish, blush, etc. and choose really like, like, or dislike.  From there, you go more in depth with the categories.  For example, nail polish, you can choose if you like or dislike bright colors, nudes, metallic, etc.  After you choose your selections, you box consists of full-size items, possibly one sample size, of only your likes and really likes, none of your dislikes.

I was really impressed with the selection process and with my box as well.  Below is my entire box which included a blush, eyeshadow, pencil sharpener, a lipstick, a nail polish, and a skin tightener sample.  I will describe each product below.

First up is a really cute pencil sharpener by Michael Marcus.  It's about the size of a mascara bottle and a pretty blue color.  I actually needed one of these :)

Next up is a mineral blush in Peach Pink by Cailyn Cosmetics.  This blush is a pretty color and I think it will work well with my pale skin tone.

Up next is an eyeshadow by Be a Bombshell.  The color is called Divine and it's a shimmery blue that reminds me of Cinderella's dress.  I haven't used this yet but I'm up in the air on how well it will work with my green/blue eyes. 

Next up is a pretty lipstick by 29 Cosmetics in the color Expressive Rose.  It is described as a shimmery fuchsia but I think it leans more red.  I am excited to try this color, it's super punchy.

Above are my swatches of the eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick.

Last up is the only thing I know about in the box...polish haha!  The polish is from LAQA & Co. and the color is Blurple.  This polish is a cool toned medium purple that had a fantastic formula.  I used two easy coats with topcoat for the photos below.

Overall I was really impressed with the quality of this box.  An individual box is $40 and a monthly subscription is $36 a month.  I think the price is very fair considering how many full sized products I received and how much you can customize the box.  One more cool thing with the box is the paper that comes with it that describes every box and product in it along with the retail value of the products received.  My total retail value was $86.  Wantable can be found here.
