February 2014 Wantable Makeup Box

These were my preferences for my Wantable Makeup this box! I put that I disliked highlighter because I was trying to not get the One Stick and get the Glam Natural cream blush. It didn’t work!

Beauty For Real True Color Lip Cream

Beauty For Real True Color Lip Cream in Always There ($22) I was so excited by this! It’s almost exactly like the Clinique liquid lipstick that I just had to pitch because it was ancient – but this one has a mirror and a light up cap! It’s a plum rose shade and perfect for me. Win.

Be a Bombshell The One Stick - Flustered

Be a Bombshell The One Stick – Flustered ($16) Honestly, I didn’t want this in my Ipsy and I didn’t want it in this box.  If it weren’t a review box, I’d return it (you can return Wantable boxes) – the whole thing – because I dislike this product so much.  It has mineral oil, which I won’t use on my face, and parabens. This is not a winner for me – even without those ingredients, I have no desire for single use products or this color. Going in the trade pile!

Face Stockholm Polish & MiA BelleZZa Eyeshadow

Face Stockholm Polish in Want-A-Blue ($12) EEEK is this an exclusive color? That’s pretty neat. However, my card says it’s perfect for cool fall days. They should probably update that copy because I’m all about spring right now!

MiA BelleZZa Eyeshadow in Midnight Blue ($16) Am I the only one weirded out by that capitalization? This is a pressed mineral pigment and you can use it wet or dry for liner or what have you. I really like this! It’s a nice sultry way to use blue for a liner without being powder blue.

Michael Marcus Prime Foundation Brush

Michael Marcus Prime Foundation Brush ($20) I got this because I have that I like tools on my Wantable profile, but I only ever seem to get brushes. I’m going to have to remove it, because I have a zillion brushes.

Sormé Treat & Tint Light Honey BB Cream Sample – I’ll give it a whirl!

So that was my Wantable box!  I love that everything is full size (except for the sample, which Wantable places a $0 value on).  I did my best not to get the One Stick but I got it anyways, which is an oh-well for me. I love the Beauty For Real Lip Cream and everything else I could probably do without – I usually put that I don’t want polish but I saw some gorgeous NCLA in some boxes so I thought I’d try for it, but it was neat to get a Wantable exclusive color. My readers have much better luck with their boxes and one of you needs to fill out my profile for me. My box did, however, have a value of over $85, which is pretty awesome for a box that costs $36!

Visit Wantable to subscribe or find out more. They do guarantee that you love it, and as a customer, I have totally returned a box. I’d return this one – It didn’t quite live up to my preferences – but it was a review box so no need. If you got the February makeup box let me know what you received in the comments!

    I skipped my Jan box since I hadn’t even gotten to use my Dec box yet, LOL I like your box but agree on the onestick. I already have a couple so not sure I need another one. I’m planning on getting my Feb box when my time is up about the 21st. I do love most of my products and I love that I can send the box back. I haven’t had to yet but I love knowing its there if I need it.

    I just got my first box, and I hate everything but the billion dollar brow gel. I’m returning. I’ve had much better luck with Lip Factory sub box for half the price.

      return! did you try the intimates subscription?

  • Chelsea

    I want to try the Wantables box someday but they seem pretty inconsistent.

    • Brandy

      You can return the box – no return shipping, they just send you a label. If you don’t love it just send it back!

  • Thaty Camila

    I’m so tired of bombshell products..but overall you got a great box. 🙂

    • Brandy
