Memebox is a non-subscription Korean beauty and makeup box that contains 4-7 full sized and deluxe products varying from makeup, skin care, and hair & body products. Superboxes are also available which cater to those looking for full-sized products. The Superboxes have a specific theme, and each item in that box is carefully selected to fit that theme. Prices vary and shipping is $6.99. If you purchase Value Sets then you also receive a free upgrade to express shipping. Boxes sell out fast so you have to jump on them while you can. New boxes are being released regularly.
CutiePieMarzia 2 is the second collaboration that Memebox has done with Marzia, who has a Youtube Channel called “CutePieMarzia”.
REVECEN Face Control Foundation ($22.00)–This Face Control Foundation helps cover up skin imperfections and controls dull and yellow skin tones. It also contains natural preservatives like green tea extracts and magnolia extracts. I’ve used foundation before but I’m used to picking colours that are close to your skin tone. Who would want a PURPLE foundation? Well, turns out that I do! I tested this on a small area of my face and the colour completely blends in. I don’t really understand how this works, but I’m happy that it does.
Shara Shara Petit Friend Matte Lip Crayon ($11.00)–This lip crayon comes in a variety of colours and I received Pure Pink. This is a moisturizing product and doesn’t give too bold of a colour. It goes on smoothly and doesn’t leave your lips feeling sticky. I’m really happy with this lip crayon and it will be a great basic one to keep on hand.
Cheek Rom Lip Balm Clover ($12.00)–This balm contains olive oil, shea butter and jojoba oil formula and it works to nourish and protect your lips. It is great for moisturizing dry, chapped lips and also plumps and revives the suppleness of dulled-out lips. I expected this balm to be really gooey but it’s actually quite hard. It has a nice flavour but does feel a little bit sticky. I haven’t gotten to the clover yet but I’m curious if it’s just a part of the balm, or if it’s a separate item.
Shara Shara Triple Shine Color Shadow ($15.00)–This shadow is infused with fine pearls that adhere for a long-lasting, silky finish. There were four options for colours and I’m really happy that I received White Pink. The other options were Pink Violet, Yellow Brown and Cobalt Blue. I don’t have many options for pink eye makeup because I’ve never been too sure about how well it would show. The shades aren’t too highly pigmented but show quite well. The shades look great together as well. It’s also a cute container with a face and polka dots on the case.
Tonymoly Red Appletox Honey Cream ($12.00)–This daily facial cream is made from vitamin-rich red apple and nourishing honey. This hydrating gel cream stretches when patted on which gives off a massaging effect and a silky finish. You just spread the product evenly over your face and gently pat it in for full absorbency. Initially, this product feels really sticky and I didn’t think it was going to absorb at all, but it actually did! It left my skin feeling soft and smooth. I didn’t notice any massaging sensation though.
The Yeon Jeju Hallabong Energy Mild All-in-one Serum ($20.00)–This organic formula is made from the “Hallabong” which is a type of orange cultivated only in the Jeju Island and are known for bursting with vitamin C. It also contains kiwi, broccoli and aloe vera, this serum works to replenish, soften and protect the skin. This can be used both morning and night and you just apply it evenly over your face and pat in for full absorbency. I found this one to leave my face feeling a little bit sticky after use.
This was a great box and I really enjoyed all of the items. My only complaint would be that I would prefer more of a variety of items. There was one eye product, 2 lip products, 2 face products and the one foundation. I would have maybe liked to see a lotion or something different. At this point, I will have to use up one product from the box before going on to the second, similar item. Regardless though, this box had a lot of great items with a great value.
