Hello hello hello!
I hope all of you are doing wonderful! The K Beauty fanatic in me is thrilled for this unboxing because I have been wanting to try MemeBox for so long and I finally ordered a box last week!
For those of you unfamiliar with Memebox, it is basically a website that sells the latest products in Korean Beauty and they also sell curated boxes! Shipping is free on orders 30+ and they currently only ship to the US, China, and Korea I believe.
The box I ordered is the Fall/Winter 2015 Makeup Trend Box and costs $33 + free shipping. This box includes 6 full size and 1 deluxe sample size products! Here’s a description from their website:
New season means new makeup looks. Rock the chillest makeup trends from F/W 2015 runways- metallic eyeshadows, smoky eyes, winged eyeliners, red lips, berry lips, and more! This box is packed with products that will keep your makeup on point during the colder months.
The products are packaged in a pink box full of pink tissue paper which totally screams my name. The first thing I saw was the information card, which has a lot of detail – thank you MemeBox!
I honestly had no idea what was going into be included in this box, I saw Fall/Winter Trends and immediately bought it. I mean, how can it possibly be bad box?! Fall and Winter are my favorite seasons for beauty so I know I was bound to be satisfied!
3 eyeshadows, 2 lippies, 1 eyeliner, and makeup remover?! Yes please!
Let’s get onto looking at the products individually! (All descriptions are straight from MemeBox’s website)
Nooni Snowflake Cleanser Deluxe Sample
Clear skin is one thing that will never go out of trend. What’s more important than putting on makeup? Taking it off well. A good, thorough cleanse can really improve the texture of your skin, allowing your makeup to go on effortlessly the following day. Try XO Memebox’s newest skincare product, Nooni Snowflake Cleanser. This magical sherbet melts into an oil type cleanser as you massage to dissolve all oil-based impurities and stubborn makeup, even waterproof. Formulated with precious water from Jeju Island to replenish your skin cells with Oxygen to restore elasticity and vitality.
How to use: 1) Scoop out a pearl-sized amount. 2) Gently massage against the skin. Make sure your hands and face are dry. 3) Massage once more with wet hands to emulsify the oil. 4) Rinse off with lukewarm water.
Basics Liquid Eyeliner #02 Brown Pumps ($10 value)
‘Barely there’ baby wings all the way to super thick dramatic wings, cat eyes ruled the runways as usual. Winged eyeliners add an instant glamour and attitude to one’s look. The cat eye look is such a staple in big cities like Paris, Tokyo, New York, and Seoul. Koreans love using brown eyeliners to enhance the shape of their eyes while keeping it natural. Korea’s Next Top Model winner Jungsun designed this soft pigment, precise felt-tip brown eyeliner inspired by a sexy pair of pumps, one of her wardrobe essentials.
Get the look: Fill in your lash line. At the outer end of your eyes, draw a flick toward the end of your eyebrow. Make it longer or thicker depending on your preference!
I’ve heard amazing things about the Snowflake Cleanser recently and am super excited to try it out! I just ran out of my Banila Balm Cleanser and really liked that one so I’m interested to see how this one compares.
Eyeliner is one of my favorite beauty products apart from lippies! This brown shade isn’t super light nor is it intense. I have swatches of it at the end of this post but I can say the pigmentation is just right for my needs. I find the tip really easy to create wings!
I’m Eyeshadow #PG305 Gloria Gold ($12 value)
Tis’ the season for all things that glitter. Achieve mesmerizing eye makeup with I’m Eyeshadow #PG305 Gloria Gold, a gorgeous multi-faceted gold shade. I’m Eyeshadows are formulated with Sebum Control Powder that allows them to apply buttery smooth, saturating the eyes with rich pigmentation that lasts all day.
Get the look: Pack on the gold eyeshadow on your makeup brush. Spritz some water or setting spray to allow more intense color payoff.
I’m Eyeshadow #PB307 Nikita Gray ($12 value), #PS303 Deep Blue Sea ($12 value)
Smoky eyes are always in, especially for fall and winter. We picked some of our favorite cool-toned shades that can really make your eyes pop.
Get the look: Try using a subtle grey for a natural daytime smoky eye makeup. Or pack on some of the midnight blue shade for mystical aura.
I LOVE the packaging for these eyeshadows, they feel really luxurious compared to other eyeshadow singles I’ve purchased in the past. These three shades are perfect to create looks with in the upcoming months! I think my favorite has to be the Deep Blue Sea in the middle – but the Gloria Gold and Nikita Gray are gorgeous as well!
I’m Lip Liquid #RD600($16 value)
Red lips are oh so chic. A pop of bright color on the lips instantly dresses up an outfit and brightens up the complexion. Try our best-selling lip liquid shade #RD600, a deep red with blue undertone.
Get the look: For gradient lips, dot the color onto the center of the lips then lightly blend the color outwards with your fingertip for an ombre effect. For bold red lips, line your lips and fill in until desired vividness is achieved.
I’m Lipstick #MT009 Jack Rose ($16 value)
Berry lips are in this season. It comes in a huge variety of shades, from bright strawberry shade to the deepest blackberry. Try our best-selling lipstick shade Jack Rose, a rich purple.
Get the look: You’ll only need one coat as it’s super pigmented. To get matte finish, gently place a tissue over your lips and apply powder with a fluffy powder brush.
I am SO happy MemeBox included a berry shade as well as a red! These two are my favorites to wear in the Fall and Winter! They are both super pigmented and going to be used soon. The packaging for both = A+!
Here are swatches of the eyeliner, lippies, and eyeshadows! I was expecting the gold eyeshadow to be a bit more pigmented but I’ll be able to build it up for a more intense look. The Deep Blue Sea and Jack Rose are definitely my favorites but there isn’t anything I dislike in this box!
My expectations for this box
were simply to have products I could use for the next few months. I didn’t (but should have) read the list of products included in this specific box before purchasing it but nevertheless, I was really really happy with everything included (which rarely happens with curated boxes). I am also impressed with the quality of the beauty products! I’m definitely going to have to control myself when it comes to MemeBox – there are already a few products and other boxes I want!
