Sunday, September 8, 2013 September Beauty Box Review!

Hey peeps! I'm very excited to bring you my first Wantable box review! I was provided with a complimentary box in exchange for my honest opinions. I've been following for a few months, so of course I jumped at the opportunity! Those unfamiliar with the company and what they do - doesn't just offer a beauty subscription. Those interested in fashion jewelry and accessories can sign up for the new Accessories box. Not just that, they also just started a new Intimates sub box if you dig pretty skivvies. The Intimates box will start in October, pre-orders are being accepted now. I'm a makeup glutton myself, so I chose their beauty box without a second thought. For $36 a month you receive 4-6 FULL SIZE beauty products valued at $80-$100. As with other sub services, you can skip a month or cancel at any time. I should also add, if you're not keen on the idea of having a monthly subscription, you can also purchase a box without subscribing for $40 - so either way you're getting a deal. At signup, you take a style quiz that helps determine what products to put in your box. Each item can be rated as dislike, like, or LOVE. will never send you any products or colors you've disliked. Now that I've told you a bit about the company, let's check out what's in the box. Shall we?
Let me start by telling you is the first company I've ever had send an email notification letting me know when my package has been delivered. Seriously, as hot as it's been lately I was a tad concerned that I may not get to my box before the sun cooked it. must give you HUGE kudos for that one! Friggin genius! Now on to the goods...The September box rocked my socks! I got not one, but three lip products. SCORE! Check 'em out yo...

This is my new favorite lippy btw. I'll go ahead and admit, when I opened my box and read over the paper I was slightly disappointed for just a second when I saw that Face Stokholm was suppose to be in my box. Their replacement product did MORE than make up for that! Manna Kadar is fab, and this gorgeous creation is their Gloss Ware long lasting lip gloss in Hot Lips. Retail value, $19. So kudos again Wantable, for sending me the perfect substitute! Next is Manna Kadar Lip Glaze in Patty Cakes...
 Another fab lippy! Manna Kadar Lip Glazes also retail for $19. Patty Cakes is a gorgeous shimmery peach color. I prefer to layer it over a nude lip liner for a minimal daytime look :) Another thing I love about the Manna Kadar lippies that came in the box...they're lightly scented and flavored. Ready for my next lippy? This one's by Besame, another brand that I've wanted to try out for a while.
Beseme Cherry Sweetheart Balm is another great lip product with a hint of color and flavor.. Retailing at $18 each, the Sweetheart Balm comes in 4 delicious shades. I wouldn't mind seeing more of these from, this stuff is pretty heavenly. Now on to the eyeshadow....
I was excited about this one! I've been so into green eyeshadow lately :) Lise Watier solo shadow in Vert Cosmique is a shade I'll be using a lot. I decided to swatch it alone and over eyeshadow primer. LOVE. Now I'll show you the sample of Lise Watier Ombre Souffle Surpreme. Note the sample is just a freebie added to the box, it doesn't count as one of your 4-6 products...
Sunrise Peach and Verte Enchante were my samples. They're both pretty. I would like to get my hands on Verte Enchante for sure! I appreciate the sample, Lise Watier's Ombre Souffle Surpreme retails at $24 a pop! I couldn't make myself drop that much dough on a single shadow without trying out a sample first. Now let's check out the next item I received in my September Wantable box...
 Yay! I got Liberty Republic's Vally Girl Falsies! It's a shame, I'm 33 years old and I have yet to use any falseies, so I was happy to get these. If you're wondering why I haven't posted a photo of them on my eyes, it's because application is apparently something that takes practice. I've put my review off for a week in hopes of getting these things on my face right, but I'm not there yet. Liberty Republic Fake It falsies retail for $8, BUT - I've just been browsing their website and they have these babies marked down to $4! It's a good time to stock up :) Now down to the last item in the box...
Color Club's Art Club nail art lacquer retails for $4. I don't own any CC's, so I'm happy to add one to my vast polish collection. I also don't own any nail art brushes, so the thin art brush makes me happy :) I wanted to get some awesome nail art done for your eyeballs today, but I've been crazy busy lately. Please accept my lazy apology, I'll make some art with this stuff one day soon!

So there you have it...The September beauty box seems fab to me! I really like the lippies and eyeshadow. Total retail value - $86 - $82 if you figure in the $4 price drop on Liberty Republic. I'll be subscribing just as soon as I can. I love that each box is customized to fit your likes and tastes :) Going by the success they've had their first year, I'd be willing to bet they'll be adding more awesome brands as they continue to grow. I hope to see some high-end nail polish in future boxes (*Illamasqua, Deborah Lippmann- hint, hint) Time for linkage! Check out the website here, like them on Facebook here and last but not least - follow along with Twitter here. Now it's your turn. What do you think of the Wantable September box? Are you a subscriber, or are you planning on signing up? Let me know your thought and opinions folks. Comments make me happy :) Until next time peeps!
