I jumped at the chance to try this. JUMPED. I love that this box is made up of full sized items. Some samples are just too small for me to get enough experience with them to tell if I like them. They also are premium beauty items, so it isn’t just about the full size (though for me it was the biggest pro for trying this out).
When you choose what box you want (you can get non-beauty, but I went for beauty) you go through a survey that helps them create a box that suits you. I have done several services before and always took the surveys, and I always felt like they were pointless. Like they were gonna throw whatever into it that they needed to use up instead of things that I personally would use. Not so with this one.
I got item types and colors that I would choose. I love bold lashes, and that’s what they gave me! My eyeliner is a pretty green. The blush is a tone that would suit my skin color in a shade I would naturally gravitate towards.
My box came with 5 full sized items and a sample card for Lise Watier. I was surprised to see the sample card, but I believe it is just a bonus. I was hoping for something full sized from Lise Watier, but maybe next time. I did end up with an eyeliner, blush, eyeshadow, false lashes, and tinted lip balm.
As far as the premium label, I really don’t know. The only brand I recognized was Lise Watier, and that was not part of my full sized items. However, the products do feel good quality. The lip pot packs some strong pigment. I was pleasantly surprised. The blush and eyeshadow, both from Be A Bombshell, are pigmented and have a smooth texture. I guess my hang up, and one a lot of people have, is feeling like it isn’t premium if you can’t pick it up at Sephora or the prestige section of Ulta. However, I happen to think the quality of the items I got are very good.
I decided to price my box online and see how much it would cost me to have purchased these items separately instead of in the Wantable box.
- Besame Sweetheart Balm – $18
- Be A Bombshell Blush – $16
- Be A Bombshell Eyeshadow – $14
- Liberty Republic Valley Girl Lashes – $8
- Au Naturale Meaningful Makeup Eye Pencil – $18
So, would I get this again? Despite not recognizing the brand names I would be inclined to try it again on a box by box basis before going the subscription route. I felt like this box really was geared towards me, and not just a random selection of products.
Wantable boxes are $36 if purchased as part of a subscription, or $40 each if bought individually.
