Wantable - new quarterly subscription

Recommended Posts

Came home from vacation to find my August beauty box! 

 

 

 

700

 
Japonesque angled foundation brush
Lise Watier eyeshadow samples in Sunrise Peach and Vert enchante 
Face Stockholm lipstick in Future
Michael Marcus blush in Lavish
Susan Posnick dual-ended eyeliner/eyeshadow stick in Bronze/Copper respectively

 

 

I like the products, however this month's box felt a bit small. I got the 4 end of the "4-6 full size products," so perhaps that's it. I'll give Wantable another month or two and reevaluate the expense. Granted, for the $40 one-off box (minus ebates, of course) I got $99 worth of products, but it hurts spending that much on a sub!

The four-item boxes always disappoint me -- I know that the worth is the same, but I just want to see 5-6 items! That said, I've only ever gotten the one four-item box . . . I think they're the exception rather than the rule.
 

As an aside: I am getting really tired of FACE Stockholm. So far, I've liked one of their products. I wish Wantable sent out more Besame.

I have no tools checked off on my quiz and I wish I didn't now. I would be a little sad about only four items too but you got great ones in my opinion. I don't know what colors the blush and lipstick are but I would happy to get yours :)

I have yet to receive any Besame and I'm dying to try them! I would also love to see that Brazen loose powder blush show up in my box. I liked my Face Stockholm lipstick from a couple of months ago but it was nothing special. I haven't used the eyeshadow from last month yet so I can't comment on it yet.

Thx Alicia--I really hesitated with the tools part of the quiz. I like tools...but I'm also just as happy with my cheapo brushes and my fingers. Tools just make it more fun : )  And the lipstick and blush are both light berryish pinks. Def usable colors for me.

Exactly! I keep adjusting my quiz, hoping for Besame . . . no luck so far. I really like the FS eyeshadow, but the lipstick and mascara didn't work for me at all.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who hates seeing the FACE products in the boxes. I might just send my next box back if I see that brand again. Ugh! Well, maybe not if the rest of the box is a knock out, but if it is so so, I will give it some thought.

I redid my quiz and ordered a second box for July and I was able to get the Besame crimson lip/cheek tint and the pot of red lip gloss too. I did a really limited quiz, saying pretty much all I wanted was blush and lip gloss with Red being my love. I also got a Cailyn red lip tint in a vial. And, I think, 3 cosmetics cream blush and a brush (though not the retractable lip brush I was hoping for). I also looked up all the posts on Wantable's Facebook page which related to Besame and made a comment about how much I liked Besame and wanted to try them. Not sure if that helped or not, but my email address for FB was the same one I used for the Wantable subscription. So who knows?

I LOVE your necklaces! What styles do you have down for "loves"? My preferences have that I love necklaces & love statement pieces. I have love set to everything statement, but my pieces have been pretty bland. I got one necklace in my August box that was a single rhinestone spike. I like it, but I would LOVE yours.
I can't remember all the options but I liked all except the boho and urban styles. I disliked those two. Edited to say: I went back to look more closely at my preferences, to better answer your question. I loved Classic and Glam, liked Rock and Roll and Mix and Match, and disliked Boho and Urban. I loved necklaces generally and on the specific types, I liked mini and maxi and loved midi. I loved minimal and everyday and liked statement. I think maybe because both of mine were subtle color-wise, although larger, and also surprisingly lightweight, maybe they didn't consider them statement pieces.

BTW, I ordered a lipstick and gloss from Besame.  I'll let you know how I like them when they arrive.  They've already shipped.

I am loving the Besame cheek/lip crimson. It's amazingly versatile and not as "red" as I thought it would be on my cheeks. I also put that I wanted cream blush, and lip glosses in red to get it. Guess I could have purchased it for cheaper than the box but I got a bunch of other stuff I like and some that I can trade for stuff I want.

I have seen comments on the Wantable Facebook page where they tell people if they are simply dying to have one beauty item that is featured you can email them directly and they will do their best to make sure you get it in your box.  I might have resubscribed when they had the "we want you back" 20% off email if I could have been certain of getting one of the sheer glo Manna Kadar products in my box.  I wasn't sure if they considered it a blush or a highlighter and I didn't really want either of those things from other brands, just from MK.

Loved my Wantable again this month, got a beautiful foundation brush, eyeshadow, two polishes, and a FACE bronzer in a perfect shade for me.

 

Nice!!! Love the bronzer.  I just got a friend to subscribe, but she didn't use the link in the email I sent her.  She's contacting them and hopefully they'll let me have the credit.  I can't wait for the next box!

Well, this is my second Wantable box in a row that will be going back! I packed it up already, so no pictures, but I got a FACE Stockholm lipstick in Pride (dark burgundy), a Cheek Flash blush from Whip Hand Cosmetics in Beachhouse, the Japonesque foundation brush, and Mia BelleZZa Mineral Shadow Duo in Moca. The blush was actually great, a loose shimmery bright pink, but the cost to keep it was $18 for only 0.10 oz and I didn't like it THAT much.

 

What is up with Wantable picking these horrible dark shades for me? After last month's brown Manna Kadar blush disaster, I re-did my quiz a bit....and got an even darker lipstick. I may give Wantable one more shot. I do appreciate them letting us return things. I really like FACE Stockholm though, but I would prefer to have a color that actually works for me and honors my selections.

I talked my sister into ordering a box (she just bought a one-off) and she had color problems with one item too.  She's got light red hair and they sent her a brick red eyebrow powder.  I'm not sure anyone has brick red eyebrows, so it had me sort of going blink.gif  She pointed out to me that they don't have a hair color question in the survey.  As thorough as they are, I had overlooked that fact.  They should add that as well as a complexion color question to avoid the too dark/too light problems with color.

I just sent the suggestion to Wantable that they add a skin tone and hair color question to the survey.  Hopefully they will do that.  I think it would help them narrow down the shade choices more appropriately.  We'll see if they respond.  Their customer service is usually great.

 

I have to reiterate how much I love this sub.  It's my absolute favorite.

What is that neat little 6 magical shades thing I see in the pictures? Looks like eyeshadow samples as your bonus item maybe? If so, I am soooooo very jealous. I got a pretty good box, but it seems like my sample was something lame--facial oil maybe. Would've loved eyeshadow samples.

I love love the peices you got! I'm still waiting for mine. It said delivered and it wasn't =[ hope my box is as good as yours. Why was there only 3 peices? Isn't it 4-5 or did they lower it again?

I'm not sure but most boxes I have seen so far had only 3 - 4 pieces. The quality seems to be better than when I first joined in April so that may have something to do with it. The total value of this box is $86, although I disagree that the Ingrid bracelet is worth $28.

    • Yes, it is quite good. Why do you ask this?
    • But what if she CAN'T afford experimenting with different products? That might really make the situation worse and harm her hair even more... Same with home remedies. If your really want to change your hairstyle then hair extension is a good option because you won't damage your hair and scalp. You can actually lookup the tutorials on the web, but videos on Youtube are more descriptive.
    • Hi, I'm moving to the UK shortly from London. Are there any British skincare/makeup brands that are difficult to obtain there? I might need to stock up before leaving! J
    • A man goes to the doctor, concerned about his wife’s hearing. The doctor says, “Stand behind her and say something and tell me how close you are when she hears you.” The man goes home, sees his wife in the kitchen, cutting carrots on the countertop. About 15 feet away he says, “Honey, what’s for dinner?” Nothing. He gets halfway to her and repeats the same question. Nothing. Very concerned, he gets right behind her and asks again “What’s for dinner?” She turns around and says “For the THIRD time, beef stew!”
    • There are a variety of benefits for Orange Essential Oil. I am mentioning some of them: 1. It lifts your mood up and reduce the stress 2. It treats skin conditions like acne 3. It helps with Upset Stomach 4. Can be used as a flavor in food and beverages
