Memebox, who very kindly sent me this box to review, is a Korean beauty box service that specializes in their highly popular one-time boxes. There are many different levels/types to Memebox (pronounced mi-mi-box), and boxes sell often times months in advance. Memebox sent us Colorbox #2 – Orange, and there are three in this set. The other two were Red and Blue.
Memebox is not a subscription box; it’s a series of one-time boxes that are growing in insane popularity here in the US. They also ship to 45 countries, making this one of the few truly global boxes. This box arrived via DHL/USPS today, after being shipped Wednesday, so the shipping is incredibly fast, especially since it’s coming from South Korea.
Memebox has a couple of options, and they sell out FAST so waiting isn’t something I would suggest doing if you’re really interested.
There are several different types of memboxes, and they are as follows (courtesy of Memebox itself) :
The original Memebox comes packed with 4 – 8 full-size products and deluxe samples. Boxes in each Memebox series always contain the same products, and contents vary from hair and body products, to skin-care and makeup products.
Memebox Special Edition:
Memebox special edition comes packaged with 4-8 full-size products and delux samples under its own theme. Memebox special edition is designed to meet the various concerns, beauty trends, and also seasonal needs.
Superbox was inspired by our Memebox lovers, looking for full-sized products catered to specific needs. Each Superbox series comes with its own theme, designed to target particular concerns, or collaboration with our favorite brands!
We created Luckybox to give everyone a different and unique box full of our favorite products for you to feel like the luckiest person in the world! Every Luckybox is unique and is filled with 4 – 8 full sized products and deluxe samples carefully curated from Korea to give you the best experience and widest exposure to a range of products!
Ex) First and Second generation of Luckybox:
We only have a limited supply of each Memebox series, and Luckybox #1  was created to bring back our most popular items selected from previously sold-out Memeboxes, all combined in one wonderful collection.”
They also have “naked” boxes, which are full box reveals prior to purchase. Otherwise, all boxes are mysteries with a random spoiler here and there. Welp let’s get onto the review!
First look. Each box is pink/gray and very well packaged!
Since all the products are written in Korean, and since everyone may not be able to read Korean (yours truly included), they include information cards detailing each item, its name, color, ingredients and usage. This colorbox included four items.
Dearberry Today Nail Laquer – Fantasy – 3$
This is a very pretty light pumpkin/clementine color. The card claims it applies very thinly, and it does, it’s more of a sheer stain. It would take several coats to reach full opacity, and the color dries very shiny and glossy. It’s a great summer color! I’d almost venture to say it’s a great fall color too.
L’OCEAN Eye Shadow L-29 Pastel Orange – 10$
This is much more yellow when put on. It’s not shimmery at all, and is very buildable, but not nearly as orange as the pan suggests (swatches below). It’s very lovely and creamy, and works really well when used with a shimmery highlight. Not all skin colors can pull this color off, but luckily it can be used as sparingly or as heavily as you’d like. It’s a very versatile pan of shadow.
Tosowoong Bronze Spectrum Waterproof Gel Pencil Liner – Sunshine – 14$
Hands down my most favorite item in the box, it’s a shimmery eyeliner that’s incredibly versatile. This is much more of a true orange, with a lot of sparkle. It’s a very generously sized pencil as well, and it goes on very smooth and creamy. This sucker doesn’t budge either; I still have the swatch on my hand 8 hours later. Love it. I’d love to own some of these in different shades, and I don’t normally wear eyeliner. I’d become an eyeliner believer for this.
Dearberry Flirt Lipstick 06 Million Dollar Orange – 12$
This is much more of a red-orange (swatches below), and the case is incredibly pretty. It leans much more orange than red. I love that it’s made from all natural ingredients, including olive oil and cocoa butter. It took some work to get the swatch, but it’s very buildable and very, very creamy. I’d love this in a pinker shade.
Swatches, from left to right – Eyeshadow, eyeliner, lipstick. Two strokes of shadow and lipstick.
Overall we loved this box! Sadly this particular Memebox is no longer available, but you can see it here if desired.
