Wantable – December 2013 Makeup Box Review


My first review was with Wantable. A start-up company that launched in August 2012 with the beauty category, has since introduced fashion accessories and intimates categories. The focus of this monthly subscription box is being a discovery platform where they provide customers with hand-picked, curated, boutique makeup, accessories and intimates – they utilize style quiz answers for each individual when they pick select pieces or products in each box. They work with brands like Coobie, Betsey Johnson, FACE Stockholm (sold at J Crew), Color Club, Besame and many more.

What makes this monthly subscription box company different from the others is, the products are full size, and the subscription runs at $36/month or can be purchased as a single box for $40. Shipping is free and you can cancel, return or skip anytime!

As you can see above I received the makeup subscription box to review.  The items I received were based on the style quiz and answers I chose (you can always update your style quiz before receiving the next months box). Based on my preferences this month this is what I was likely to receive:


In my box this month I received the following products:

  • MiA BelleZZa – Mineral Pressed Blush (Captive Glow)
  • Beauty for Real – True Color Lip Cream (Always There)
  • Japonesque – Travel Smudger Brush
  • Starlooks – Lengthening Mascara (Black)
  • Color Club – In True Fashion Polish  (Style Icon)
  • Skiin – Instant Skin Tightener & Line Filler

The total retail value of the products above is $77 & for the subscription value of either $36/month or $40 for one time box – this is in my mind a GREAT value.

Many of these companies and products I have heard of before and used, but a few I haven’t heard of and now am a fan of the products, especially when it comes to mascara. The Lip Cream is an amazing concept of lip color with a mirror and light on the wand – great product. Color Club nail colors I have used in the past, and have even used their color changing brand (Ruby Wing) during this past summer – which I was a HUGE fan of ( I LOVE my nail polishes!!) The travel size smudger brush is a great item for me to have in my purse. I have many high-end makeup brushes and this works just as well. Blush is a great color, just enough sheen/color to not be overdone. I myself don’t tend to wear blush often, I tend to gravitate towards bronzer, but this is a great alternative.

Based on my review above, I will definitely stay connected with Wantable and even try out the other boxes for fashion accessories and intimates. I will also play around with the style quiz a bit more to narrow down other products that I may like to try.

Cyber Monday Deals at Julep


Todays the biggest online shopping day of the year – Cyber Monday. Finding deals is the motive for most, and the added bonus of not leaving the house or work place (shh I wont tell) to do some shopping is even better. I wanted to share with you  what I thought was one of the best Cyber Monday Deals offered from one of my favorite nail polish companies that I only discovered over this past summer. The variety of colors alone will amaze anyone, and the added benefit of the non toxic polishes is a plus. The colors last much longer than other brands I have tried before and the prices are even better, but check them out for yourself.


Click on the top image for Cyber Monday Deals to check out some of the great holiday items (some perfect for stocking stuffers) before they sell out – because they will, Believe me.

And Happy Cyber Monday Shopping!!
