Before I get started on the review, do not not forget that you can still get the Wantable Halloween box. You canread more about this special edition box here! I’d heard great things about Wantable and I’ve been dying to try it, so I subscribed! This was my very first Wantable box and I was super excited to get it! But it just wasn’t totally me – it was full of glitter! It turns out that I didn’t actually complete my profile settings, so I contacted customer service and they sent me a pre-paid label, and I returned it. EASY! I thought that was pretty awesome!September Wantable Review   Makeup Subscription Box photoSome of the stuff I loved but really, I was like, this is my third blue eye pencil this month and as I had the opportunity to just start over, I did, so my first “real” Wantable makeup box is the September box, below! I did really love many of the items in this box and was really sad to see the eyeshadow sample on top go. It was just a little too sparkly for me that day! The silver pot of stuff was face glitter, the pink stuff was face glitter, and the black cream shadow had a pot of silver eye glitter. And it was like holy glitter Batman! But you can return Wantableproducts if your box isn’t right for you (and then adjust your profile!). So it’s a totally non-scary box!September Wantable Review   Makeup Subscription Box photo

September 2013 Wantable Makeup Box

Every Wantable box comes in a really nice white shipping box and is padded to the hilt with foam blocks. I really like that, nothing is ever messed up from shipping!

Japonesque Angled Foundation Brush ($25) Now that’s more like it! I LOVE BRUSHES! I was thrilled to get one in my box!

Laqa & Co in “Chubs” ($11) This is the perfect gold metallic polish. I used it immediately!

It held up pretty well!

Michael Marcus Eye Shadow ($11) I’m not sure of the color, I threw away the box and it doesn’t have a sticker. I think it might be “Cheap Eye Shadow.” It’s not cheap! I love this neutral brown and it has a hint of shimmer in it.

Cailyn Lengthen & Thicken Mascara ($15?) This isn’t my fave, it’s more of a natural type mascara and I like big gooey eyelashes.

Lise Watier Haute Lumière High Shine Lip Gloss ($22) My favorite item and one of the best lipglosses I’ve ever used! It’s the perfect pink color for me, not too sticky or glassy, and best of all, has a mirror. AND IT LIGHTS UP! Yes it really does it’s ah-may-zing!

I got nearly $85 in value from a $36 box and will use each product. I also got an eye cream sample that I tucked in my travel bag. I’m so happy with the September Wantable Makeup box! Next month is available now and it may contain (it’s according to your profile!):

  • Pomegranate Nail Lacquer, chic polishes in perfect autumn shades
  • Lise Water,  Feline HD Eyeliner and Mascara for the perfect cat-eye!
  • Manna Kadar blushes to keep you glowing as the weather cools off
  • adorable kabuki brush from Cailyn Cosmetics!

The October Wantable Accessories box will have

  • statement necklaces in jeweltones
  • sleek & sophisticated metallic pieces
  • vintage inspired pieces

I wore the gold spike bracelet from my September Wantable Accessories box last night!

    Love your Sept box. Mine was really good too and so happy that they were able to take care of your return. Aug was my first box and I loved it and Sept but I did go in and tweak my profile a little to see how things change for next months box. This is such a great sub box.

    I didn’t get a makeup box for September, but I did get an accessories box. Last month, I was happy with my makeup box, though! I adore my Japonseque crease brush that Wantable sent. Sooooo Soft!
