A few weeks ago I was approached by Wantable.com asking if I would like to review their boxes. Of course, who is going to turn down makeup, accessories or lingerie? Certainly not this girl! I took a few days to explore their website, and their social media “stamp”, so see what kind of products they sent out before I committed to doing this review. I was intrigued by the various options they offer for their boxes, and seeing the items on instagram & twitter (#wantable), I decided I wanted one now!
As a curvy girl, the lingerie box didn’t appeal to me right now (maybe later), so I had a lengthy debate with myself over make-up versus accessories box. I finally decided that I have plenty of makeup for now, and I’m always on the hunt for fun accessories! One of the first things that I found that I liked about wantable.com was the quiz you take to customize your box. With the accessories box, there were some great questions – don’t like gold tones – tell them. Prefer scarves over sunglasses – tell them!
Here is an example of the quiz for the makeup! You tell them what you do and don’t like based on a “love, like, dislike” scale. You get more of what you love, and less of what you dislike. For me, I love nail polishes, so that would get moved to love. I am “ehh” about eye liner (my eyes are more sensitive the older I get”, so I may leave that as a “like”. I have wonderful tools already, so I would move that to dislike (for now!).
Wantable.com offers two options for purchasing a box. There is the subscription option, which is $36 a month and a one time purchase option for $40 a month. Subscribers will receive one box a month, with the option to cancel or skip at any time. The box categories are as follows:
Makeup: 4 to 5 luxury brand items per personalized box
Accessories: 3 to 4 on-trend pieces per personalized box
Intimates: 4 to 5 premium essentials per personalized box
When you get your box, it is adorably packaged in individual bags, and has a tag with the retail price. For the items I received, the prices ranged from $18 to $36.
Here is my box! I was very excited to get it in the mail, and it was waiting for me when I returned from my cousins wedding in Florida. I received a beautiful watch, a set of silver dangly earrings, a pair of blue & gold earrings, and a pair of brown tone sunglasses. I was almost giddy with excitement over the brown sunglasses, because I can now say – my glasses match my shoes! I have a brown pair and a black pair now! The watch I have worn several times to work, and have gotten many compliments on it. It has a rubberized band, which seems to be popular nowadays, and a crystal accented face. The crystals make me happy – as I love all things sparkly! The blue & gold earrings are pretty, but I don’t wear much gold jewelry. They do however match a silky button front shirt I got from my sister in law, so I have worn them with that. The silver “dangly” hoops I plan on wearing this weekend to a party Patrick and I are going to. They have the right amount of sparkle on them, and are a great accent to my normal silver toned jewelry choices!
