I heard about Memebox a couple months ago and have been wanting to try it out. Memebox are curated boxes with Korean beauty products. I’m a big fan of Korean products because of the high quality. I ordered the XO Naked Makeup Box Romantic Rosegold (sold out) because rose-hue neutral is flattering on my skin tone. The box was $35, but at a $73 value if purchased separately. Here is my review of the products in my box:
Eyeshadow Quad – This eyeshadow palette comes with 2 matte, 1 shimmer, and 1 sparkle. The two matte (sutra and valencia) are pretty colors, but are not very pigmented. I had to apply quite a bit to see the colors. Perhaps it’s because these brown/neutrals are too similar to my skin tone. The shimmer (candy rain) is a BEAUTIFUL color and very pigmented. I love the shimmer and the shade. It’s perfect! I couldn’t get much color out of the sparkle eyeshadow (bae area), but it does have chunky glitter. I am not a fan of this colorless glittery eyeshadow. Overall, I think I’ll only be using the candy rain eyeshadow.
Liquid Eyeliner (brown) – I do not have a brown eyeliner yet, so I was excited to get this. My first impression was positive. The application was easy and the formula is long-lasting.
Hot Pink Lipgloss – This lipgloss is SUPER pigmented. When applied to my lips, it came out in the exact color as the tube, therefore I had to be a little more careful applying it. I don’t own many lip glosses because I don’t like the sticky texture and glossiness of most lipgloss, but this was neither sticky nor overly glossy! It has argan oil, manuka honey extract and rosehip oil as its key ingredients and smells amazing. While I love this fun color, it is not one that I’d wear on a regular basis. A tip I received with the box is to mix this with foundation to use as blush, but I have not tried it yet! I am too scared to put this hot pink on my cheeks.
Cream Blush – This is my favorite item in this box and I’ve been wearing it every day! I don’t own any cream blushes because I prefer the powder formula, but this product is amazing!! The coral color is perfect on my skin tone, it is so easy to apply, and the formula is flawless. I just rub some product on my finger and gentle pat/blend it on my cheekbone. It dries to a lightweight powdery finish and stays on all day!
Cream Matte Lipstick – This is a warm nude with a brown undertone and matches my natural lip color. I like the cream matte formula and this is a good color to have if I want a natural makeup look. It is a good every day lipstick.
Cream Eyeshadow Pencil – This is a beautiful sepia cream shadow with subtle coral gold shimmer and is long-lasting. It’s lovely on its own, or with a couple other complementary colors. It contains argan oil, jojoba seed oil, and rose hip oil.
Overall, I loved trying out these products because they are so different and most of them I’ll be using on a regular basis. I loved my first Memebox and they do come out with new boxes regularly. What I love about these boxes compared to beauty subscription boxes is that you know exactly what product you’ll be receiving so it’s not a big surprise or disappointment if you receive something you don’t like.
