I’ve been a Wantable subscriber since I first learned about it shortly after they opened their website. I’ve been lucky enough to get some boxes for review but even when I don’t, like today’s box, I’ve kept my subscription up since the $36 a month that I pay for a box always contains more than my money’s worth.
What I love best about Wantable’s subscription is that it’s 100% cosmetics. I don’t have to worry about receiving more skin products, hair products or bath/body. It’s not that I don’t like and appreciate those items, I do, but I love cosmetics and that’s where my main interest is. Whenever I open a subscription box my excitement is really for the cosmetics within. With Wantable you get to customize via your profile. My profile says that I love eyeshadow, eyeliner, nail polish and tools; that I like complexion products, brows, lash products, blush, lip color; and that I don’t want highlighter or bronzer. For October I received 1 Love item and the rest from my Like list. Let’s check these out.
Inside are 5 full size items. Wantable is only going to send full size! I was excited to see that my box carried Vincent Longo, Ofra, Chella, and Liberty Republic. These are all name brands that I’ve bought or definitely would buy.
LIBERTY REPUBLIC is a nail polish brand created by Jordan Liberty. The new collection, placed in the October boxes, is the Welcome to the Darkside collection. Interestingly enough my shade is a light one rather than a dark shade. There are 6 shades in this exclusive to Wantable collection and they are said to use a technique that helps it last for 7-14 days. I’m excited about being able to wear this beautiful peach shade, Aura. ($14) I don’t have nail wheels available right now and the swatch on paper didn’t look good but trust me, this is pretty.
The item that stood out the most in this month’s box is a BB Cream from OFRA ($40), this is a huge tube at 2 oz. I received this in Light. Light is a good description for this since it’s not Fair enough for me and it is on the yellow side. I’ll be able to wear this if mixed with a little of my Face Atelier Zero foundation but for now it’s not quite right. The ingredients in this BB Cream are great for skin (aloe vera, vitamin E and C, avocado oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, chamomile extract and shea butter). There’s flower extract to reduce bacteria and prevent breakouts. I’ve been wanting to explore more OFRA though and this is a good way to do it.
VINCENT LONGO does double duty in my subscription box. First is the VOLUME PLUS MASCARA ($25) which I’m looking forward to using. My mascara dried up when I was hospitalized so having this is an exciting option for me.
One of the top sellers for Vincent Longo is their Lip and Cheek Stain ($24) and this month I received it in Angel’s Touch. This is more of a berry stain than I’d expect an angel to impart. The color is intense when first applied so you need to pat it to make it appear more like a stain and to set the product. Directions say to make sure your cheeks are well hydrated; begin at the apple of your cheeks and dab 2-3 dots on with the doe foot applicator. Immediately blend them outward and upward toward the temple. Add more as needed. This new gel formula is gluten free and paraban free.
The last product but the first I used is CHELLA EYEBROW COLOR in Luscious Light Brown ($18). When I returned home from my many weeks away the hair on my face had exploded. I was able to get to a beauty salon and while there had my brows waxed. They look good but certain areas are more sparse than I like. This Chella Eyebrow Color looks good, is easy to apply and needs no sharpening. Sending my husband on wild goose chases to find all my items is frustrating for us both. This solves one of those problems.
My Wantable subscription has $121 worth of product in it. This is probably the highest value yet. These are all products I’ll use even though I’ll have to adapt the Ofra BB shade so it makes the box even more valuable. Wantable made a welcome package to open upon my return and I know I’ll be welcoming them more as the months go by. — Marcia
