May 2014 Wantable Makeup Box

Back in October I had the opportunity to try out a Wantable Makeup box, and come May I was offered the chance to try another! I really enjoyed the one I received a few months ago, so I was really excited to see what this box would bring.

For those of you who don't know much about Wantable, it's a subscription service that costs $36/month. You take a very detailed survey about your likes and dislikes and they send you a variety of beauty samples and full size products that fit your tastes. Below you'll see a snapshot of what my survey said I liked and disliked. To sign up for Wantable, just click here.

Here's what I received in my May Makeup Box.

  • Cailyn Cosmetics Tinted Lip Balm in Coral (value: $19) - I received one of these in a past Ipsy bag, although it was in a different shade. These aren't my favorite, as they're not very hydrating, but they do add a nice pop of color to the lips.
  • Mirabella Lip Colour in Berry (value: $22) - Kind of an odd shade for a May box, this deep berry color screams fall in my mind. I really like it, but it seems more appropriate for a September box.
  • Ofra Universal Eyebrow Eyeliner (value: $10) - This is far too dark to fill in my eyebrows, so unfortunately this is a dud for me. It feels like a nice quality pencil so I'm disappointed I won't get to use it.
  • Vincent Longo Liquid Concealer in Fair (value: $28) - Oddly enough, my information sheet says I was supposed to get a Vincent Longo Dew Drop Blush, and I so wish that was right. Instead I got concealer which I don't use on a regular basis as I feel it brings out my fine lines. This is a nice high quality concealer though, and it isn't a cheap product so I'm happy regardless!

Overall, I think this was an OK box. I liked the one I received back in October better, but I do think this has some cool brands and products that I will have fun trying. I think the value you receive in a Wantable box is definitely worth the spendy price tag of $36, especially considering this box had a value over $70!
