Are you up for a sort-of surprise? Simply respond to a test and Wantable provides! Although you won’t know exactly what you’ll get, you can count on Wantable to individualize your box just right. I received some lovely, vibrant pieces in this box (yay!) and one that’s a little bit less remarkable by contrast – however every one definitely matches my design.
For some people (myself included), the cost might be a smidge high for a regular cost. However if you’re utilized to paying premium for quality products, a Wantable box might really assist you save money.
Wantable aims to match their customers with makeup or accessories they’re sure to like. The goodies in each box are hand-picked by Wantable’s in-house and guest curators, based upon the responses you offer in an extremely simple design quiz that just would like to know if you love, like, or don’t like the choices they present to you. For a one-off box at $40, or a subscription at $36 per box, you receive 4-6 full-size makeup items or several pieces of quality devices (the specific number appears to alter month to month). With each box valued at $80 to $100, you could save up to 60 % on the current in beauty and style.
If makeup and accessories aren’t your thing, Wantable has actually also rolled out an intimates box with elegant and comfortable basics (think camis, tanks, socks, leggings, panties, and soft bras).
We’re back to accessories with this month’s box. My previous devices box was a favorite generally. How does this one stack up? To give you an idea of exactly what the Wantable group had to deal with, below are some of my answers to the design quiz:
- Love: Classic, Mix ‘n Match, Earrings, Necklaces, Headbands
- Like: Rock ‘n Roll, Boho, Urban, Multi Tone, Beads
- Dislike: Rings, Watches, Eyewear, Leatherette
And below are the products they sent me:
Can something be both elegant and cute? Yes, and the Estella earrings prove it. The warm apricot gems in their stately oval shape, the small pearl-like beads at the top, and the whimsical bows and flowers all come together in old-fashioned quirkiness. My mother, who enjoys classy and charming things, walked off with them at first sight.

I don’t generally purchase black earrings due to the fact that they get aesthetically lost in my hair, but I can rely on the Aubrina earrings to stand apart thanks to the silver trim. They appear to remember the conventional diamond shape that you frequently see on earrings, however the rounded edges – more clover than diamond – softens the look. The earrings feel a little heavy, but the supports are secure enough that I’m not at all concerned about losing one.

I think I’d such as the Emmy necklace more if the green bars were bigger. It’s such a stunning color, and I want even more of it! As is, I’m a little underwhelmed, but I can see this working as a daily, I-just-need-a-spot-of-color kind of accessory.

I thought this locket looked fairly normal initially. It’s generally a round pendant on a long chain – and that’s what you’d see from a distance. But then I really reviewed it, and I fell for the information. The construction of the necklace (two main rings looped together by twine-like wire) and the lots of various structures bring interest to an otherwise basic shape. My only fear is that the out-facing rhinestones along the edge can damage sweatshirts and other delicate clothing. Then once again, I can envision the pendant being a gently efficient tool – it’s certainly sturdy enough!

Is It Worth It?
The retail value of everything in the box came out to $98. There’s no way I’d purchase any of these pieces at their full list price, so the 59.1 % savings is too far eliminated from my budgeting world to actually get me delighted. But if I consider it from a different angle – these pieces are lovely, and they’re just about $10 each! – I’d state this box is worth it.
I want to emphasize this box, because the expense for monthly boxes can actually add up. (Seriously, there’s no way I’d be able to keep this up if I weren’t reviewing these boxes.) And while Wantable tries to match up the goodies with what you like, there’s no guarantee or one-item return policy – full-box returns just. Still, I think the Wantable experience, quiz and semi-surprise and all, is an enjoyable treat for special events and an awesome present for the makeup or style inclined.
Disclaimer: I got a complimentary box for a truthful review.
