Memebox (pronounced Mi-Mi-Box) is one of those boxes that has an uncanny ability to draw you in time and time again just when you think you’ve kicked the habit. I don’t know what it is to be honest, the boxes usually have repeat item types but it’s probably the mystery of it if I had to take some kind of hypothetical guess. Then there’s that whole “I’m getting an excellent deal” thing.
Memebox happens to be one of those boxes that reminds me that I have little to no self-control. This little pink box filled with Korean beauty goodies has me in such a stronghold. The annoying part is that Memebox themselves started this habit by sending me the Colorbox #2, and I subsequently bought this box myself. My name is Beeju and I am a Memebox addict.
Anywho, this is the Waterproof Makeup box. It went on sale many moons ago, sold out many moons ago and contains all full size makeup items.
I swear I have the ability to take better photos. I know most don’t even read the little info cards but it’s that whole “I’m technically a graphic designer yet I can’t even take a straight photo” thing that gets me. Anyway each Memebox comes with a front and back info card detailing the item, its name and usage. Since these boxes are curated and sourced straight from Korea, they may not always have English names or directions. I have a tendency to stockpile my cards.
Rubelli Water Glow BB Cream – 24$
This gives off that “I just vigorously washed my faced repeatedly” glow when applied. It blends in easily but is entirely too thin and watery for my preference. It has a tint to it that’s maybe a hair lighter than normal beige foundation would be. It does blend but it still gives off color.
Color Bucket Flash Pop-up Geller – Black Geller and a random sharpener
This had one of 10 possible choices and I got the most generic and most everyday wear friendly of the bunch. I would have rather had a bolder color since every beauty box in existence sends out black eyeliner, but this is supposed to be very blendable, waterproof, and gel-like. Memebox threw in a random pencil sharpener that’s unlisted for this and another item below.
Cheek Room Curl and Long Last Mascara – 9$
I’m still on a “NO EYE MAKEUP/CREAM/CONTACT/ANYTHING” hiatus from an injury awhile back so I couldn’t use this if I wanted. As far as mascaras go, this brush leaves a LOT to be desired. I normally like fuller wands. The mascara tube is absolutely huge though, and I love the satin/matte finish on the tube.
Enesti UV Cut Sun Block SPF50+PA+++Pink – 15$
That name was obnoxious to type…
Anyway sunscreen is one of those things I don’t use, mostly because I am still quite naive to the benefits of it. It says to use it at the first stage of makeup application. Sunscreens are a dime a dozen so I’m hoping there’s something special about this one besides the packaging.
Y.E.T. Mission Impossible Lip Marker – Tiffany – 12$
This is a wild little thing. It’s a smooth crayon on one end and a felt tip marker on the other. You’re supposed to use the red tip then smooth the pigment in with the marker itself. It’s entirely too RED red for me so I’ll be passing this on. It looks neat enough though.
Croquis Eye Shadow and Blusher – 17$
I never got the whole “dual item” thing. This is an absolutely gorgeous peachy-pink shimmer eye shadow shade but a horribly patchy blusher. It is absolutely waterproof too, it took a good 20 minutes of scrubbing to get it off my hands. I adore this color though and it’s nice a subtle. Very creamy and easy to work with too.
This wasn’t my absolutely favorite Memebox ever (Cacao holds a special place in my heart) but it was alright for the first box I outright purchased. I love that eye shadow stick more than anything, and while the rest of the box was mostly a dud for me, I only paid 7$ for it (all hail the mighty expired coupon) so I am more than satisfied.
Memeboxes sell out very quickly depending on type and range in price. I would highly recommend you get a value set where you can get express shipping. I purchased this box in June, it shipped early August and I didn’t get it until last week. They release new boxes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays so you’re sure to find something you’re into.
