Wantable are a subscription box service that offer 3 different types of boxes, makeup, jewellery or intimates.  Of course, makeup is the box I choose ;)  You get 4 to 5 full size products picked out by a beauty icon.  Like other subscription boxes, you complete a profile stating the different things you like, it's very comprehensive and from what I've seen so far, they do pay attention to your choices.

This month (March) the box was put together by Jordan Liberty who's a professional makeup artist, photographer and YouTuber.  The nail polish above is one of his own products called Spellbound.

It costs $36 per box, which is about £21 a month, which when you consider you're getting good quality full size products, is a great price, and they ship to the UK, whoop!

Here's what I had in my box, in a bit more detail:

Liberty Republic - Spellbound nail lacquer in Belladonna - retails for $14
This is a 'your nails but better' shade - also a great base for doing some nail art (it'd be lovely with black polish polka dots or stripes).  I haven't tried this yet, so can't comment on the quality, but I really like the shade, I don't have enough like this so I'm really happy with this being in the box.

LAQA & Co - Fat lip pencil in Wolfman - retails for $18
I had a small 'sample size' of this in a previous Birchbox and really liked it, so to have another (and full-size) made me very happy.  As you can see in the pics above, it's a pretty sheer shade, again, a 'your lips but better' shade, which is perfect for daily wear, especially if like me, you tend to wear stronger eye makeup than lips.

Glam natural - Cream blush in Ashley, Ashley - retails for $32
Isn't this packaging amazing?  So luxury!  It comes in a slide-apart box, inside a velvet pouch!  The dispenser is a pump, it'll take a while to pump it enough for product to come out, but when it does you only need a little bit.  The colour blends in nicely (I've only swatched this on the back of my hand, so this is very much first impressions) and goes quite sheer with a bit of a dewey finish, so this would look nice teamed with a dewey foundation - or just top it with a smidge of pressed powder to set it.

Three Custom Colour - Eye shadow in brown sugar - retails for $21.50
The packaging on this feels really nice quality, the shadow itself is pretty close to matte, with a subtle satin sheen.  Given my paleness and the warmth (redness) in this shade, I probably wouldn't wear it all over the lid, unless it was as a base colour, however it'd be a lovely transition shade, or nice to add to the very edge of your shadow to give it some warmth.

All in all another good box - a total of $85.50 of products, for £36.  It's introduced me to brands I've never heard of before, and not at sample size, but full size :)
