If you haven’t heard of Wantable yet, you soon will. An American beauty box that is set to storm the UK shores this year with their exciting and innovative way of providing beauty products to their subscribers. This is exciting as it brings new brands that we might not have previously heard of right to our doors to try and fall in love with.
How does it work?
Wantable works much like the other beauty boxes out there, for a regular monthly payment you can recieve a box delivered to your door every month, tailored just for you.
The process of ordering is unlike any other beauty boxes out there. When you first create an account you are asked a series of questions, each with multiple answers, along with representations of the colours and products you are being asked about. From skin tone to hair colour, likes and dislike, Wantable take you through everything they need to know to make sure you get a box of goodies that not only appeal to you, but that will suit you. You can even go back when your tastes change and amend your answers. Each box is packed just for you!
We chose that we
- loved – fair, warm, cool, eye shadow, blush, lip colour, nail polish and tools
- liked – complexion products, eyeliner, lash products and highlighters
- disliked – browns and bronzer
What is in the box?
The contents of our Wantable box definitely corresponded with the likes/dislikes that we entered in our initial registration. It was exciting to open it up and find that everything was suitable and really appealing to our tastes.
Vincent Longo – Trio Eye Shadow Lulu Eclipse (Love Eye Shadow)
For ease of application and eliminating the need to colour match in any way, Vincent has created this little pot with a trio of pretty, cool and sublime shades to get that perfect look.
The three tones included are Pax, Sex and Lux, each with it’s own job to do when it comes to beautiful eyes. Applying Sex across the eye from lash to brow gives a silvery shimmer base on which to work. Follow up by defining the lash line with Pax, a deep, rich barely black hue and also accentuate the outer corner of the eye. Finally, use Lux a gentle, pearlescent green to complete the look across the crease of the eye. Only one last touch remains, to blend everything together with a large soft brush, leaving you with a seamless, beautiful and incredibly sultry look.
(Plã) Beauty – Cheeky Blush Pink Ribbon (Love Blush)
Stunning rosy hues build with each application to create a warn, natural glow to the cheeks, leaving you looking healthy and fresh faced. It is presented in a handy pot and the blush is easily transferred from palette to brush, brush to skin. The colour is also true. there is a beautiful shimmer that catches the light, highlighting the cheek bones!
This is a really fetching pink and suitable for the summer months when pretty florals and soft colours will be all the rage!
ncLA Nail Lacquer- Jet Setter Collection Clear The Runway (Love Nail Polish)
From the sunny shores of LA, this nail polish is a rich but deep red wine shade. It is free of lots of nasties including formaldehyde, DBP, toulene, camphor and has not been tested on animals.
Definitely a winner to add the bold pop of colour to a summer outfit and perfect for those long summer nights and holidays.
Mirabella – Glowing Coral Highlighter (Like Highlighters)
This highlighter is very pretty, the glowing shimmer of rose and gold tones pick out the details along your cheekbones, cupids bow or indeed anywhere that you want to get that extra bit of light to catch.
The colours are incredible, bordering on a gentle summer bronzer, the waves of colour in the palette are blended expertly, to allow you to create the perfect look for summer, a sunkissed sheen.
All if the items included in our box were right up our street and even surprised us in many ways. There are so many options with how to use them and we have been introduced to four new brands that we hope to see much more of in the future.
A Wantable box is $36 (approx. £21) for a monthly subscription or $40 (approx. £23) for a one off box.
