A New Day

Taking a look at all of the things I've been missing

Memebox #43 – K-Style #3

on November 13, 2014

This. Is. Amazing!

The fabulous folks over at Memebox sent me this box packed full of Korean cosmetics. Ok, I love skincare, but I love makeup and beauty products!! There is so much in here that I can’t wait to use. I’ve only done some light swatching because I feel like I need to write my thank you to Memebox before really diving in! So again, Memebox, thank you! Each box gets better and better and I have become an absolute convert. Let’s not talk about the giant box of Missha masks that came in from Memebox US last week… oops.

In case you aren’t familiar:20140707-184811-67691771.jpg

Memebox (pronounced Mi-Mi box) is currently the #1 beauty box provider in Korea, and arrived here in the US and other countries just recently! We strive to bring you only the most trusted, best-loved Korean beauty products at everyday prices. Korean cosmetics are renowned for their high quality and efficacy, and we’re really excited to bring this to you! Memebox carries 4 main types of beauty boxes: Memebox, Memebox Special Editions, Superbox and Luckybox. In addition to the box series, we also carry full-size, Korean beauty products in our Memeshop.

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.

The Superbox is specially designed to cater to beauty box fanatics looking for full-sized products that will target their specific beauty needs. Each Superbox is designed with its own theme and purpose, and contents in the box are carefully selected to fit the box’s theme. Our Superboxes are loved by daring beauty enthusiasts and beautyholics that are open to trying new products and have a specific beauty need in mind. Also, we UNBOX our Superboxes on the product page one week after the scheduled shipping date so that you can find out which goodies are in your box!”

While Memebox is not necessarily a typical subscription service like that of Birchbox or Glossybox, its suggested that people sign up on the website to receive updates when new boxes are available. You can buy the boxes at anytime, but they sell out VERY quickly.

So here we go!

“Lights, camera, action!

1 – Secret Kiss Face Fit Strobe Cream (full size included – $11 for 30ml) IMG_2776.JPG

This makeup base/starter smooths out skin texture and creates an ultra-natural radiance. Made from 6 kinds of gemstone powders and various floral extracts, it works to instantly correct a range of complexion concerns including dehydration, dullness, sallowness and redness. Perfect for wearing with a foundation or applying after makeup as a highlighter and recommended for all skin types, the lightweight, oil-free cream moisturizers and replenishes, leaving the skin dewy, fresh and flawless.

HOW TO USE:

Mix foundation or BB cream with Strobe Cream in a 2:1 ratio.

After base makeup, apply a small amount of the Strobe Cream over the T-zone, cheekbones ad chin for highlighting the 3D volume of your face.

Feedback: this produced such a lovely glow (top swatch)! I’ve been wanting to try this type of product for quite a while and I really like this so far!

2 – Vella Flower Flower B.B (full size included – $26 for 15ml)

Vella’s Flower Flower B.B cream works to moisturize and smooth dehydrated skin, prime and perfect skin texture, camouflage and color correct skin tone, and finally to protect skin from the sun with an SPF30 PA++. Its silky, light formula is moisturizing without creating excess oil and minimizes the appearance of pores without clogging them up.

HOW TO USE:

Take a dime-sized amount of the B.B cream and apply it evenly over your face. Pat it over with your fingers for full adherence. It’s especially recommended to be used with the Face Fit Strobe Cream to create that perfectly dewy complexion.

Feedback: this blended very well (bottom swatch) and was a good shade match. I like the consistency of this and think it will pair well with the Strobe Cream.

3 – Tonymoly 7 Days Tattoo Eyebrow 02 Dark Brown (full size included – $8 for 0.8ml)

Tonymoly’s 7 Days Tattoo Eyebrow may remind you of a regular liquid eyeliner from its visual, but in fact its a brush-type eyebrow pen that tattoos onto your brows for a pair of perfectly groomed brows that lasts up to 7 days without having to re-draw them every morning.

HOW TO USE:

1-2 hours before bedtime, paint and fill in between your brows to make sure you have a perfect pair of arches. When the color starts to fade after 3-4 days, simply give it a retouch.

Feedback: the color is pretty spot on. I’m not sure how I feel about something that doesn’t come off… (top swatch)

4 – Style Y Soft Fit Mix & Match Pencil and Powder Shadow (full size included – $9 for 0.5g)

The Soft Fit Mix & Match Pencil and Powder Shadow’s dual ends – a liner on one end and a stick shadow on the other – can be used to compliment each other, creating a whole new spectrum of mix and match eye makeup looks. Plus, its non-smudging and smoothly applying – easy enough to be used by makeup beginners!

HOW TO USE:

First apply the stick shadow over your eyelids and then draw in the eyeliner. To create the signature Korean look, highlight the aegyosal (rounded skin just under eyes) with the shadow tip.

Feedback: both of these just glided across my skin the peachy pigment is so smooth. Love it!

5 – Style Y Color Fit Creamy Lip & Cheek (full size included – $13 for 5ml) IMG_2778.JPG

Highlight lips and cheeks with the multitasking cream color that gives cheeks ad lips a healthy, natural-looking flush. Style G’s whipped mousse highlights lips and cheeks with a sheer, soft matte finish.

HOW TO USE:

For a lip makeup, spread the Creamy Lip & Cheek evenly over the upper and lower lips. For a cheek stain, take a small amount and softly blend it with your fingers.

Feedback: this might be a little too bright…I’ll try it out as a blush and see if I change my mind.

6 – Color World Jewelish Stick Shadow (full size included – $13 for 10g)

Color World’s Jewelish Stick Shadow features beautiful shades with a creamy formula to provide endless spectrum for a flawless bold eye makeup. Each convenient stick is long-wearing, transfer-proof and crease-resistant. The color glides smoothly onto lids and blends easily for rich pigment payoff.

HOW TO USE:

Apply directly to eyelids and blend it in for desired intensity.

Feedback: this color is so lovely! I don’t own any greens like this. This stick shadow is very similar to the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick – highly pigmented and is easy to build the color or blend out.

  1. Great review! Thanks so much for swatching all the products too! I wasn’t too thrilled with the K-Style 2 box, but this one is definitely an improvement. I really like the color of the shadow stick too! Perfect for Fall! 😉 #kbeautybloghop
