Memebox – F/W Colors Review

Confession time! Memebox officially owns my soul. I could tell you magical stories about how I desperately tried to resist this box when it was announced last July but they would all be blatant lies and slander. This box was mine from conception.

There are things in this world I choose not to understand, such as why bad things happen to good people, why they make about 467.72 tons of cordial cherries that never sell every year, and why Memeboxes are so addicting. I embrace this addiction. I also see no need for pink lemonade flavored oreos but that’s a rant for another day.

fwcard fwcard2Memebox is a Korean beauty service specializing in one-time boxes. Each box has a different theme, price and shipping time. These suckers ship out around a month after purchase so patience is highly needed with this company. Each box also comes with an info card. The items are sourced directly from Korea and may not always be in English. Not that you wouldn’t know that a lipstick is a lipstick but Memebox has been known to send out face products that require mixing and childhood chemistry sets so the cards are useful.

fwliptintYADAH Angel Lip Tint in Red Wine – 8$
You know, I never knew was lip tint was. I had never experienced it before, never owned it, never heard about it, and certainly had no idea how to use it. Then suddenly the beauty box gods said “LET THERE BE LIP TINT,” and this is my 7th lip tint in the last month.

I still don’t like this stuff. NEW THINGS SCARE ME. Just give me some gloss and I’m happy. It smells like concentrated turpentine.

fwlipstickWitch’s Pouch POPO Lipstick – Burgundy Wine – 12$
This is the darkest lipstick I own. There’s so much I love about this, the design of the tube is simplistic yet effective and has a satin finish (I dig packaging bite me) and the stick itself is creamy and smooth. The color washes me out though as it’s entirely too dark. I need to figure out some way to lighten this up without destroying the stick itself. I love berries in general and this is such a pretty color for fall. Why couldn’t my skin work with Fall colors too? 😦 I will make this work. I will.

fwpolishShara Shara Fairy’s Perfume Nail VL01 Lilac Bora – 4$
The design screams adorable yet young to me. I love the design to be honest, and the color is gorgeous and filled with many sparklies but it doesn’t scream Fall to me. It seems more like kindergarten play date. Regardless I am keeping it and using it because I like pretty bottles and pretty colors.

fwgreenDD’ell Illumination Eye Shadow – Shimmer Green – 11$
Green and I are mortal enemies. My eyes are dark blue and my skin is vanilla (if going by Too Faced foundation colors). Green makes me look like I have food poisoning. I would have loved this in any other color. It’s a nice size shadow too, quite large and only has a hint of shimmer. It goes on pretty sheer too, but I still can’t pull it off. Boo hiss.

fwblushWitch’s Pouch Love Me Blusher – Sexy Swan – 14$
It’s a little darker than I like in my blushes normally, but it goes on fairly sheer and does look at least a little natural. It’s easily the biggest compact of blush ever too.

fwlinersDD’ell Stay Forever Gel Eye Pencil Twilight Purple and Garden Light – 14$ Each
More eyeliners! But they’re pretty eyeliners! The green is much more of a light green but it still ranks right up there on the “Beeju can’t use this color” scale, but when paired with the eye shadow I imagine it would be gorgeous. The purple I adore.

fwpencilsClose ups. The purple looks a lot like the polish. They’re both glitterbombs. The purple goes on very smoothly. I quite like it! Maybe this is an excuse to invest in some purple eyeshadow huhu

fwallThe only things I wasn’t crazy about were the two green items and the lip tint. The rest I’ll use and love considerably. Memebox has had a pretty decent track record of sending me a variety of shaded eyeliners (besides that plain black one from the Waterproof box) and I am really liking the Witch’s Pouch brand based on what we’ve seen here.

It may not seem like it because I’m nonsensical and snarky at times but I really loved this box. It’s easily one of my favorites from Memebox so far.

Welp, Memeboxes run the gamut from 15$ to 30something$. They release new boxes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays so you’re sure to find something you like. Do yourself a favor and buy a bundle to get the express shipping, you’ll be so glad you did.

Beeju purchased this box. All opinions are my own. This post contains an affiliate link.

  1. I just got my F/W box and I love it! You can definitely pull off the lipstick – it goes on fairly sheer (I’m Alaska in NARS, so you wanna talk about pale, that’s me to a T). The only problem is, it smells like perfume, so I probably won’t wear it at all.

    • Yeah I tried it and it’s very berry colored but can be veeeeery easily overdone my gosh. I noticed the perfume odor too, it’s really strong so that’s probably going to deter me from using it too

      • If you’re willing to risk the perfume smell, just put lipgloss or balm on first to lighten it up more.

        Now I’m back to trying to decide between the Tony Moly & Holika Holika or Chocolate & Makeup. Someday I will have money out the wazoo and space galore so I won’t have to make such decisions.

        • That’s a good idea, I’ll definitely try that. I’d hate for such a nice item to just sit in a drawer for the rest of its existence.

          I got both bundles thanks to a tuition refund. I’m both thrilled and greatly annoyed that the refund came at a time when some boxes I desperately wanted were released. There’s going to be new boxes tomorrow so I’m hoping that there won’t be anymore that I go “I NEED THIS NOW” mode on. 😦 I’m really bad for impulse purchases with memebox. Truthfully I’ll never use half the items I get but I can’t stop myself.

  2. what if you tried layering the green shadow over a neutral champagne/nude color? it takes some of that “sickly” color, i think!

  3. Bahaha MEMEBOX OWNS MY SOUL! Too funny πŸ˜€ I’ve STILL not bought one of those and I need to! Thanks for reminding me. I’m thinking it will possibly own mine too when I buy one! ^.^
