I really answered the pre-purchase survey in a way that I could have received just about any kind of product in this box.  I thought it would be more fun that way, and for someone with as vasta makeup collection as I have, it seemed to make the most sense.  Sooo...what did I get and what did I think?

The day was a bit overcast so I took a couple of pics for you guys to try to give a good idea.

I wish the sun had come out because the nail polish is really quite beautiful in person but the photos do not quite do it justice.

1. Japonesque Travel Smudger Brush $14.50
Hit or Miss? Hit!  I have a lot of brushes but nothing from this brand and I am excited to try it!
2. FACE Stockholm Contouring Kit $32
Hit or Miss? Hit! I really do not have a product quite like this one and nothing from FACE Stockholm and it really looks like the sort of thing I am going to have a lot of fun playing with.
3. Color Club Nail Polish in Sugar Rays $8
Hit or Miss? HIT! This color is SO pretty and SO appropriate for the season without being dark (which I tend to sort of resist because I like to be in denial that it is Fall and that Winter might show up soon ;-)
4. Girlactik Beauty Cream Blush in Coral $18
Hit or Miss? Hit!  Over the last year, I have really come to love coral and I really like cream blushes as they tend to be pretty long wearing on me.
5. Skiin Instant Skin Tightner and Line Filler Sample $0
Hit or Miss? Meh.  I will try it but I am not exactly giddy about it. But who cares, because I love the rest of the box!

The November Wantable Makeup Box. Hit or Miss? HIT baby! Woo-hoo!  LOVED it!    The cost is $36 -$40 a month depending on how you order it, the value of the items I received was $72.50. If you check the links for the individual items, you can see that they actually seem to sell for those prices as opposed to being just suggested retail prices.  I felt like this one was worth the money, especially because I was being exposed to mostly higher end brands that I have had no experience with. Based on this box, the Wantable Makeup Box really seems like a subscription worth considering. Of the Wantable boxes I have tried from their other services (accessories, lingerie), this one was my favorite by a long shot.  Well done Wantable!
