My Wantable June Beauty Box was AMAZING!

Press Sample & Referral Link
While I'm not the Beauty Box Subscription Queen like my good friend Marcia, I do recognize an extraordinary Beauty Box when I see one. In fact, of all of the beauty boxes out there- I would have to say that Wantable ranks at the very top! Each box is valued between $80 and $100 and includes expert application tips and tricks.

According to Wantable

How it works: We navigate the world of beauty to bring you the latest trends, personalized just for you.

Step 1: What do you love? Answer a few short questions so we can match you with the perfect products.

Step 2: Forever or for now? One-time purchase for $40, or subscribe for $36. Subscriptions are monthly and can be paused or canceled at anytime, no strings attached.

Step 3: Discover a new you. Each box is packed with full-size products hand-picked from unique, specialty, and premium brands just for you.
These are the 5 full-sized products that I received in my June box (left to right):
1) Three Custom Color Brow Powder #6 ($22.50 value)
2) FACE Stockholm Blush Willing ($20.00 value)
3) FACE Stockholm Cream Highlighter Sympathy($25.00 value)
4) Lise Watier Haute Couleur High Coverage Lip Lacquer Fashionista ($22.00 value)
5) Color Club Metallic Nail Polish Antiquated ($8.00 value)

That's a total retail value of $97.50 in full-size products. Additionally they included a sample of Apothederm Firming Serum along with a $25.00 (Apothederm Gift Card redeemable with a $75.00 purchase).
Three Custom Color Brow Powder #6: A very high quality and long-wearing brow powder.

According to Three Custom Color,
We all know what a difference a perfectly groomed brow can make. Our collection of six brow powder shades will blend beautifully with your natural hair color. Imported from France, our Brow Powders are finely milled to impart a silky texture and smooth application. A great alternative to waxy brow pencil and multi-funcitonal - they also make great cake eye liners or matte eye shadows.

FACE Stockholm Blush Willing: A gorgeous and buildable rose colored powder blush (shimmer flush finish) that is very finely milled and creamy to the touch. I am getting lots of wear from this beauty.

According to FACE Stockholm,
A collection of velvety, delicate powders, in an assortment of shimmer and non-shimmer shades that add contour to your face and instantly cast a naturally flushed, healthy glow.

FACE Stockholm Cream Highlighter Sympathy: A lovely golden highlighter that can be sheered out or built up. It is soft and creamy, and melts into the skin leaving behind a gorgeous dewy glow.

According to FACE Stockholm,

Velvety, cream shimmer for every spot you wish to illuminate: face, décolletage or shoulders.
Perfect for accentuating brow and cheekbones. Apply with fingertip, sponge or one of our nylon brushes. Layer under powder shadow or blush for long lasting color and depth.

Lise Watier Haute Couleur High Coverage Lip Lacquer Fashionista: What a stunning peachy pink lip gloss! The color saturation is amazing, the color is gorgeous, and the wear-time is fantastic. It has a light fruity scent that quickly dissipates and it isn't at all sticky.

According to Lise Watier,

Worthy of the biggest fashion shows, the new Lise Watier lacquer offers lacquered shine and intense color. This unique formula provides comfort and hydration. It's non-sticky texture adheres to the lips for a long-las ting. Ideal for touch-ups in the evening, the applicator is equipped with an LED light that lights up every time you open it. The container has a chic mirror and the sponge tip allows for a
precise and flawless application. Available un 10 runway-inspired shades! Paraben Free.
Swatched left to right: Three Custom Color Brow Powder #6, FACE Stockholm Blush Willing, FACE Stockholm Cream Highlighter Sympath, and Lise Watier Haute Couleur High Coverage Lip Lacquer Fashionista.
Color Club Metallic Nail Polish Antiquated: This polish is just so gorgeous! Color Club calls it "a throw-back champagne shade" to which I would add that it is complex and rich. The color modulates in varied lighting making it all the more interesting and beautiful.
Apothederm Firming Serum is an anti-aging serum. According to Apothederm,

This luxurious serum hydrates and protects your skin while reducing visible signs of aging. We like to call it a more graceful way to age. Apothederm Firming Serum is formulated with powerful botanicals and other advanced ingredients to help refine skin.  We have added two of our exclusive patented SmartPeptides™to help firm skin and reduce the signs of aging.

Overall assessment: This is how subscription beauty boxes should be done! It's a fantastic value for so many full-sized products in a single box. Additionally, it isn't hit and miss as is so often the case with beauty boxes. Wantable's detailed questionnaire assures you that your box is tailored to your needs and preferences. If you don't use highlighters, for instance, you will never find one in your box. This is also a great way to be introduced to fantastic quality products that you might not have easy access to in your area- making this an affordable way to try new things. A+

One-time purchase for $40.00, or subscribe for $36.00/month. From Wantable.
