Review: Wantable.co Monthly Makeup Subscription Box

Hey girls! Today's post is really exciting! I am going to be reviewing Wantable.co's Monthly Makeup Subscription service. I want to disclaim now that is post is going to be very long! I am going to be going over all the important company information, subscription info, and reviewing the products I was sent. I also want to disclaim that I was sent this promo box for free from Wantable's PR Rep Jaclyn. However, even though I did not pay for this box my views and opinions are completely honest, and my own.

Wantable is a makeup and jewelry subscription company, that is well established and reviewed in the U.S., and is making the move to Canada in April 2013. I actually heard about this company back in September 2012 when they were first launching, and recently heard through Smart Canucks that they will be offering a free box to all Canadians. We just have to pay for shipping. Well, naturally, the beauty enthusiast in me totally wanted to jump on this offer and within the past few weeks it has spread throughout some Canadian beauty enthusiast Facebook groups that I am a part of. I got in contact with their PR Rep Jaclyn to find out more information and she offered to send me a box so that I could review it here on my blog. Thank you so much Jaclyn! I just want to say that Customer Service at Wantable is amazing! They answer all your emails and questions in a timely manner and go out of their way to make sure that their customers are satisfied!

The Wantable Team!
I've broken down all of the information you will need to know into different questions that arose for me while I've been learning about this company. Hopefully, I answer all of your questions as well.

What Wantable claims.

"We send you hand-selected boxes filled with items that perfectly match your style."

How do Canadians sign up for their first box for free? How much does shipping cost?

The first box will be available mid-April. You can sign up to be on the waiting list using the following link. Sign up for your Free Wantable Box here!

According to Wantable, once you sign up for the waiting list they will email you instructions on how to get your free box, when they launch in April. Keep in mind that you must pay for shipping, so the box isn't really free. I just noticed on the web page that it says you must subscribe and your second box will be free. Now I am/was not aware that you had to pay for a first box before you get one for free and even in my talks with Jaclyn I was never given the impression that that was so.

Shipping for this free box will be a $5 premium rate, plus whatever duties and taxes apply for where you live. Therefore, everyone will probably be charged a different amount based on where in Canada they live.

UPDATE - Due to Wantable still being a start up company it is not feasible for them to offer everyone their first box for free. As everyone would sign up for the free box and then unsubscribe. So now all Canadians who subscribe and pay for their first box will be able to get their second box for free plus the shipping costs.

UPDATE #2 - For the 1000 people who signed up to get the first box free, they will still get that. They capped that promotion at 1000, and because it was so successful, they opened up the page for more people to try as well, but their second box will be free instead. So, anyone who signed up before yesterday - March 27th, will receive their first box free, and anyone who signs up from here on out will get the second one free.

What do you get when you subscribe to Wantable?

There are two different types of subscriptions at Wantable. You can sign up for either a recurring monthly Jewelry or Makeup Subscription. Or you can buy a one time gift of either Jewelry or Makeup. The Jewelry Box comes with 4-5 items. The Makeup Box includes 5 full size items, with additional sample sized items sometimes included. Both boxes are valued at over $80 and are filled with boutique, premium, brand products.

What does this subscription cost?

$36 per month for a recurring membership + $5 premium shipping rate + any additional duties and taxes


$40 for a one time gift purchase + $5 premium shipping rate + any additional duties and taxes

Now Americans normally get free shipping included with the base price of each option, but us Canadians are going to be paying quite a bit more per month. Because the duties and taxes are different for each part of Canada, you will be able to figure out what your monthly cost will be after you pay the $5+ duties and taxes on the free boxes. I'm just guesstimating here, but I'm thinking that it's going to be at least $20 additional for Canadians each month. I'm not sure if I would be willing to pay that much for a subscription box, full size products or not. But, we'll see.

What if I don't like the products I am sent?

No problem! Send them back to Wantable. Returns are always free!

What if I can't afford it one month, or would like a break?

Just like Julep you can choose to skip a month or two and still keep your current membership active. You are not locked into anything. You can cancel at anytime, no questions asked.

How do they customize my box according to my style?

Every month you can choose to go with the curated box that has set colours in it, or you can choose to have a customized box made for you.

There is a very comprehensive Beauty Questionnaire you go through upon subscribing. They ask you questions about the following beauty categories: brows, lip colour, lash products, eyeliner, eyeshadow, brushes, highlighter, bronzer, blush, & nail polish.

At first you pick whether you like, love, or dislike those categories. Then each category is broken down into subcategories, then colour option, and product type. All with like, love, and dislike options. So if you say that you love black gel liner, and hate hot pink lipstick, you will get the liner, but never get hot pink lipstick.

How long does it take to ship to me?

Shipping takes 5-9 business days and they will ship to anywhere in Canada.

Who chooses the products we get every month?

Wantable doesn't just hire anyone to pick their products! Industry specialists hand pick the brands and products. Let's meet them!


Now as you can see, this subscription is a lot more, cost wise, than others on the market right now, even Glossybox. But what makes this subscription totally worth it is that you always get full size products. And these products are completely customized to you style and preferences based off the Beauty Profile. And on top of all that you can change what you want to receive every month, by changing your Beauty Profile to reflect what you like and dislike. And finally, if for some reason you still are not happy, (although I can't see why you wouldn't be), you can return the box at no extra charge to you, plus a refund of your money.

You will never get packet samples like Gylmm, get drugstore brands or expired products, like Glossybox, and you wont have to wait three months for your next box like Loose Button. You will always get full size, in-style, and in-season products and brands delivered to your door every month.

Now that you know about the company, here is what I received in my PR promo box. I kept my beauty profile very open, liking almost everything, as I wanted to see the variety of colours and products they would send me. I think going forward I am going to refine it a bit because some of the colours I got are just okay. I kind of wish now that I had stuck with the Robert Jones curated box instead of getting the customized one. I didn't really like the green eyeshadow in RJ's box, but I would have preferred to receive the pink lip gloss and blush to the ones that were chosen for me.

The packaging of this box is very nice. It's a purple cardboard box with the Wantable logo on the outside. The products are wrapped in black tissue paper. Inside the first thing you see is a thank you card and an invoice. What I really liked about the invoice is that they show you that they were listening to your requests by listing the product categories you did and did not want. They also list the products you received and the retail price of them. On the opposite side of the page there is a little letter about this months products and the thoughts behind their choices.
The second sheet shows a small picture of each of the products sent, a description of the product, and an application tip from "T".  I really like this touch because sometimes when I receive products in these boxes I can never figure out the best way to apply them.

Once seeing my products this month I noticed that they sent me everything I need to create a complete makeup look. I really like this aspect!

Here is a breakdown of the products I received:

Brand: 29 Cosmetics
Product: Crush Cheek Blusher in Tannins
Retail Value: $36.00
Description: A real honest-to-goodness healthy glow packed with anti-oxidants in shades that leave the skin naturally looking "blushed" not made up.
Tip from T: Swirl your brush in this beautiful blush and apply in a circular motion to the apples of the cheeks, extending outward towards the temples.
My Thoughts: This isn't a blush colour that I would normally pick out for myself. So it is nice to get something different. However, when swatched this blush comes off almost brown and reminds me of a glittery bronzer. I said I didn't like bronzer, so I don't know why they would send me something that resembles one.

Brand: Be a Bombshell
Product: Felt Tip Eyeliner in Espresso
Retail Value: $14.00
Description: Our long lasting eyeliner formula in a rich brown. Serves as a great base for neutral eye shadows.
Tip from T: Connect short strokes together until you feel comfortable with application, or practice on the back of your hand until you find the proper angle and amount of pressure to get that perfect cat-eye you desire.
My Thoughts: I really liked the chocolate brown colour of this eyeliner and it went on very smooth. It wasn't overly opaque so a few layers may be needed. The marker shape makes application very easy.

Brand: Benecos
Product: Natural Baked Eyeshadow in Amazing
Retail Value: $12.99
Description: You can't go wrong with our brilliantly-hued Natural Baked Eye shadows. These mineral shadows are baked to provide you with long-lasting colour. Organic plant oils create a creamy application, goes on smooth and even. Colour sparkles and enhances your look. Moisten for a more dramatic look.
Tip from T: Using a medium shadow brush, apply shadow from upper lash line to just below the brow bone. Pair with your favourite liner and mascara, as desired.
My Thoughts: I really like this colour! It's like a greyish teal and goes on sheer enough for a wash of colour all over the lid. But I think I will use it more as an eyeliner. It will give the perfect pop of colour to a neutral eye.

Brand: Color Club
Product: Nail Polish in On the Rocks from the Fiesta Collection
Retail Value: $8.00
Description: A flashy molten silver, Color Club's On the Rocks adds a touch of luxe glamour to your everyday look.
Tip from T: Apply two thin coats of polish on top of your favourite base and finish with a topcoat for a lasting manicure.
My Thoughts: I have been loving polishes that look like metal and this is just that! This polish goes on fairly smooth, but has some streaking.

Brand: Lavera
Product: Organic Lip Gloss in Almond Kiss
Retail Value: $16.80
Description: Get your daily dose of vitamins and minerals with this shimmering healthy lip infusion. Made with 100% pure crushed minerals for shimmer, plus anti aging sun protection and super hydrating oils of vitamin E and Jojoba.
Tip from T: Apply natural lip gloss straight from the tube for a hint of sheer colour and shimmer.
My Thoughts: This gloss looks kinda brown in the tube. But swatched it has a slight peachy undertone. The shimmer is very noticeable in this gloss. I don't know how often I will use this gloss. I prefer pinks and reds, not browns.

Brand: Milu Beauty
Product: Amber Sugar Scrub Sample
Retail Value: $0.00
Description: A luxurious experience to exfoliate the skin with sugar and nourish the body with vitamins, essential oils, and a splash of bourbon. Use as an indulgence ritual to smooth, soften, moisturize and heal the body. Suitable for all skin types. Paraben Free and Fragrance Free.
Tip from T:  Try shaving with this for the most ultra-soft sexy legs you've ever had!
My Thoughts: It was nice to get an extra sample and it smells amazing!

Overall Value of this box: $87.79

Overall, I really enjoyed the products I received. I would definitely suggest filling out the Beauty Profile to specify exactly which colours and products you like to receive so that you are always getting the most for your money. I am going to stay subscribed for the free box, and depending on how much extra it will cost for me for shipping I may stay subscribed after that. At $36 I could justify it because I am getting full size products. However, I can't justify paying much more then that, seeing as I am trying to save for a house. It would have been nice to see shipping included in the monthly subscription cost like it is for Americans, but we Canadians always get the short end of the stick somehow, so here's to hoping shipping isn't too expensive.
Remember to click the link above to sign up for the free box, this is a generic link, not an affiliate link. Also please leave your thoughts on this company and this subscription service in the comments below so that Jaclyn and Wantable.co can see the opinions of their Canadian customers.

Review: ClubNailPolish "Pretty Little Package" Monthly Subscription Pre-Launch Bag

Disclaimer - I received this "Pretty Little Package" from Club Nail Polish in exchange for a review of their service. I am not being paid for this post.

In today's post I will be reviewing Club Nail Polish's prototype pre-launch package. Club Nail Polish, here on out known as CNP, is a monthly subscription service like Glymm, Loose Button, Julep, etc. Except they are not your typical "box" club. They do not send out sample size or house brand products. With CNP you will receive one secret, full size, name brand nail polish every month, right to your door. Brands can/will include OPI, China Glaze, Essie, etc.

According to CNP:

"It's like 'candy for your nails', and as someone famous once said, 'Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what one you'll get.' In this case, once a month."
CNP believes that everyone deserves a little bit of sweetness in the mail every month, instead of the regular boring junk mail and bills. The best part of CNP is that you'll get to experience colours you wouldn't normally buy for yourself. Their wish for us is to try at least once new nail polish colour every month.
Now that you know about the company, here is what I received in my prototype package.
My Thoughts
I think these files are super cute and the perfect size for sticking in your purse. The cotton rounds are a nice addition as well. I change my nail polish at least twice a week, so I am always in need of cotton rounds. I think extras like these are nice, but I don't think I would want to receive them every month. Other nail art extras would be nice. However, the more extravagant the extras the more expensive the box. And since CNP states they are a simple subscription service that's all about the nail polish, I don't feel that their extras should outshine their main product. I also would not want to pay more a month just to receive better "extras." I'd rather pay less and just get a nail polish.
I received OPI's My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours." I was very happy to see this colour because it is not only from the newly released Euro Centrale collection, but it is also the perfect colour to get me into the Spring mood. This polish is a bright orange cream with red undertones, and I can't wait to try it! I just cant help but smile when I look at it. Orange is such a happy colour! What I also liked about this nail polish is that it is not a colour I would normally look at or buy for myself. CNP is giving me something out of my comfort zone and I really think I am going to be grabbing for this colour a lot.
Polishes that other Bloggers received in their packages include:
Just click the links above to go to these wonderful Bloggers' reviews!
So it seems like there is some variety to the polishes, but some uniformity  as well. There is a good mix between newer and older collection polishes.
In my opinion, for CNP to stay competitive in the ever expanding beauty subscription world, they need to send out polishes from current collections. I don't really want to see older polishes or unpopular collections/colours in this subscription because I can find those in clearance bins or on sale for less at places like Winners.
Now onto the subject of cost. In my conversations with CNP they have stated that their monthly cost is not set in stone yet. I've heard talks that it will be between $10-$15 per month. CNP wants opinions about cost, and wants us to take retail price per bottle, packaging, experience, and shipping costs into account.
So here is my package's cost broken down into those categories:
Retail Price per Bottle - $9.99x1.13% tax = $11.29 (price @ Caryl Baker Visage)
Packaging - Tissue Paper - $0.06 for 1 sheet (price @ Dollarama)
                          Silver Bubble Mailer - $0.48 (price @ Staples)
Experience - Can't really quantify this.
Shipping Costs - $12.58 (shipped from BC to Ontario using Standard Shipping. It took 10 days to get to me)
Not taking into account the cost of the "extras", this package cost CNP $24.41.
Would I pay that much for this subscription on a monthly basis? Answer - No, and I don't think many others would either since we are only going to be getting one nail polish.
I would reasonably pay $10-$12 for this subscription, as that is the ballpark cost of OPI, Essie, Nicole by OPI, etc. China Glaze are around $7, but as long as I wasn't paying $12 a month for a $7 polish I would be happy.
In order for CNP to get their cost under $12 they need to reduce their cost by 50% which is huge! They would have to buy their polishes at Wholesale or Lot Prices (which I assume they are doing). They could also save money by switching the shiny, metallic mailers to ordinary ones. You can get 3 mailers for $1.13 at Dollarama. Thus costing only $0.38/mailer. And I am sure a shipping deal could be made with Canada Post to reduce the amount of shipping per package.
Overall though, I am really impressed with this company so far, and if the price is right, I would probably sign up for a monthly subscription. As a nail polish junkie this is right up my alley. I love trying and experimenting with new colours of nail polish and $10-$12/month is in my budget. This little monthly treat would be perfect to curb my buying urges, plus I would have a new nail polish to feature here each month. Hopefully, more information comes to light soon as to when they are going to launch and what the cost will be.
If you are interested in Club Nail Polish, and would like to stay up-to-date on what's going on with them, then follow the links below! I would like to thank Club Nail Polish for choosing me to review their service!
What do you think of Club Nail Polish so far? Would you sign up for this monthly subscription?

Review: Revlon Nail Art - Moon Candy, Neon, & Expressionist

Disclaimer: I received these nail polishes for free from Revlon Canada. I was not required to write a review in exchange for receiving them.
Today I will be reviewing 4 of the new Revlon dual-ended Nail Art Nail Polishes. I was first exposed to these nail duos through the Revlon Selects Program. I have since then seen the Shatter Polish Duos at Dollarama and have been thoroughly impressed with them.
I was in contact with PR at Revlon Canada about the next Revlon Selects and a few days later, to my surprise, these 4 nail polishes came in the mail. It was such a surprise and it really made my day.
The 4 I received were:
Revlon Moon Candy in Satellite
Revlon Neon in Pink Glow
Revlon Moon Candy in Orbit
Revlon Expressionist in Monet Money

1) Revlon Nail Art Neon in Pink Glow - This duo comes with a white base coat and a bright neon hot pink. The thought behind this duo is that you paint your nails with one or two coats of the white first and then once it is dry you put one or two coats of the neon polish on top. The white base is what's supposed to really make the pink colour pop.

My Thoughts - I like the concept of this polish. I really like neon polishes for Spring and Summer, and pink is my kind of colour. However, I didn't really like how this applied. The white took a long time to dry and even when I thought that it was, when I put on the pink, the white polish smeared underneath. It was also very hard to get the pink over all the white, as you can see the white peaking out around the edges. This picture also doesn't do this polish justice. It is crazy bright and my camera just couldn't focus on it. I think next time if I took more time to do my nails and let the white base dry, it would look nicer, and I would like it even more!

2)Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy in Orbit - I have reviewed this polish before. You can read that review HERE. The concept of this polish is that you use the dark base and then put the flakie top coat on to create a 3D/Galaxy nail look.

My Thoughts - My second time using this I was a bit more patient. I let the base polish dry longer, and tried to pat the flakes on the nails instead of swiping it on. I still had issues getting a lot of flakes on the nails, because I think that there just isn't enough in the bottle. Also, even with dabbing on the polish the base coat smeared.

3) Revlon Nail Art Expressionist in Monet Money - The concept of this nail polish is that one side has a thin stripping brush so that you can create lines, dots, or other nail art. The duo I received has a mint base with a yellowish stripping colour that has iridescent shimmer.

My Thoughts - This isn't a colour duo I would think to put together, but it looks pretty good. The mint was opaque in two coats and it dried fairly quickly. The yellow colour was very thick and I found that I got either too much polish on the brush or not enough. Since it is not opaque you would need at least two coats, but it is so thick that it takes so long to dry. As you can see in the picture above it went on pretty thick and I didn't really like the final outlook.

4) Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy in Satellite - Like Orbit above this polish is a dark oxblood base with a flakie topcoat. The flakes in this one change from gold, to orange, to green.

My Thoughts - I really liked this polish. The base colour is really nice on its own, and there is a better concentration of flakes in the top coat. I really liked the finished look of this duo and I can see myself using this over and over. This duo works a lot better than Orbit.

I want to thank Kelsey from Revlon Canada's PR team for sending me these polishes! If you would like to keep up with everything to do with Revlon Canada, like their Facebook page HERE.

Have you tried any of these Revlon nail polish duos? If so, what are your thoughts on them?

Shopping the Sales Haul

So I was bad again! I've had a talk with myself and I am not allowed to buy anything beauty related for the rest of March and all of April. The only exception is the Real Techniques Core Collection Brush Set, if I can find it in stock at my local Walmart.

Now I don't feel overly bad about these purchases because everything was on sale at least 50% off the regular retail price, but one of my goals is to save money for a house and I can't do that if I am buying more and more makeup. 

These purchases were from a few weeks ago so I don't think the same sales are still going on.

Revlon Minted - $2 at Dollarama. The perfect mint green polish.

Revlon Blue Lagoon - $2 at Dollarama. A light blue with silver micro shimmer. When I saw this I thought that if Cinderella was a nail polish this is what she would look like.

Revlon Star Attraction Pop Tart - $2 at Dollarama. This medium purple shade comes with a magnet on top to create a star pattern.

Revlon Stunning - $2 at Dollarama. This colour is as its name says STUNNING! It has silver micro glitter and holographic medium sized glitter.

Revlon Popular - $2 at Dollarama. A light milky pink with multi sized sliver glitter.

Joe Fresh Single Eye Shadows in Gold Rush and HoneyBell - $1.98 at The Real Canadian Superstore. These were on clearout marked down from $4 a piece. I have never tried Joe Fresh eyeshadows so I decided that now was a good time.

Revlon Shatter Nail Polish Duo - $3 at Dollarama. I have 4 of these Shatter Duos now and will be doing a review soon.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey - $4.99 on sale at RCSS.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie - $4.99 on sale at RCSS.

Covergirl Clean Oil Control Foundation in 510 Classic Ivory - $5.87 on sale at RCSS + I had a $2 off coupon, so this was only $3.87!

Joe Fresh Nail Polish in Starry - $1.98 clearout price at RCSS. This is my first holographic polish and I am so excited to try it out!

Disclaimer - All products were bought with my own money. I am not being compensated for my showing or review of these products.

February Empties

So this post is a little late...but I guess better late than never! This month I was pretty successful in using up full size products. Next month I want to try and use up a bunch of samples that I still have kicking around.

eos Shave Cream in Vanilla Bliss
This shave cream is just OK. I don't find it moisturizing at all. I actually find that I need a lot of moisturizer after using this, because my legs are left so dry. It also clogs up the razor like crazy. The only thing I really like about this is the smell. Repurchase: No

St. Ives Apricot Cleanser
I bought this cleanser because I really like the St. Ives Apricot Scrub. However, I didn't really like this. I feel that it really didn't clean my skin and it left a residue that made me want to wash my face all over again. The consistency was weird and I had to force myself to use it up. Repurchase: No

B. Kamins Bio-Maple Lip Balm
I really hated this lip balm. I found that the ultra thick consistency turned really liquidy on the lips and I was eating more of it then what was staying on my lips. The smell and taste were off-putting and I am happy this tube is finally finished. Repurchase: No

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles
So this product isn't actually empty. The packaging on this sucks, in my opinion, and broke when a quarter of the product left. I depotted it cause I didn't want to just throw that much product away. I do like this concealer but I feel like the colour is a bit to dark for me. It does a great job at concealing under eye circles and other blemishes. I wish it was packaged differently. Repurchase: Maybe

Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat
This is my Holy Grail Top Coat! If  it was up to me I would only use this forever and ever but at its cost per mL my bank account wants me to find something cheaper. It leaves my nails super glossy and my mani's last at least a week. Repurchase: Yes

Korres White Tea Facial Cleanser
I found this cleanser to be very liquidy and non-foaming. I found I had to use double the amount of product because it kept slipping right through my fingers. I didn't overly love the smell and cleansing wise I wasn't wowed. A big step down considering how well the scrub worked. Repurchase: No.

Korres Pomegranate Scrub
I got this deluxe sample as part of a complete sample skincare set at Winners. I loved this scrub! The smell was amazing and so were the scrubby bits. It reminded me of the texture of the St. Ives Apricot Scrub. It left my skin feeling ultra clean and smooth. Repurchase: Yes, if I could find it on sale.

TRESemme Split Remedy Shampoo & Conditioner
I don't normally gravitate towards Tresemme products but I really enjoyed these samples. My hair smelt great and I noticed less fly aways and frizz. Repurchase: Yes

Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Shampoo & Conditioner
This product has always intrigued me but I wasn't wowed by these samples. They really left something to be desired. However, I want to try them again for a longer period of time because they are a hair therapy duo, so one use isn't going to show instant results. Repurchase: Maybe

Have you used any of these products before? If so, what are your thoughts on them?
