Wantable Makeup Box Review

-Disclaimer: I have received the product mentioned below for free in return for my honest opinion.-

Ok, by now, we have all heard of these monthly boxes that are shipped and packed with great items. There are boxes for everything, health, makeup, jewelry, kids, men, nail polish, etc. I have to admit, I've tried a couple. Julep, a monthly nail polish subscription, is a decent box with a decent price. I was Ok with it at first, but then I started to get disappointed in the polish. It chipped to easily, and just, overall started to suck. So I haven't wanted a box from them in a while because of this. I may go back, but not right now.

Another popular box is Birchbox. I've gotten those too. It is a monthly makeup subscription. I had stopped using them for a while, because I was doing Julep, and didn't want to do two boxes a month, only one. So when I recently started my subscription again, it wasn't what I expected. I was expecting a box of makeup, as I had previously (they are a makeup company!). However, I received things that those who were eating healthier than I would want. I honestly only will use one thing out of that box. Its an oil for dry skin. I've been using it on my elbows, and it works well. Otherwise, the crap in that box is just gonna collect dust. *sigh* What to do?!

Right around then, I had gotten an email from someone at Wantable, asking if I would like to try out one of their boxes. I thought, perfect timing!!! So I did. I filled out my style profile - which really just asked me what kind of makeup I liked. And then my box was shipped. It came rather quickly. Less than a week actually. I was excited to open it! Well, actually, I was nervous. I thought back to the recent Birchbox, and thought what if this isn't what I like? What if they send me colors I don't like?! But I opened it, and I fell in love!
