Another Memebox has been shipped all the way from the lovely people in Korea and landed on my doorstep for my perusal. This time it’s the Memebox Superbox #28 All About Eyes and unsurprisingly, given the name, the box contains everything you need to leave those peepers looking absolutely gorgeous.
Naturally knowing how good all my previous boxes have been I was eager to delve right in and discover what Korean delights were tucked inside.
YniPicture-Esque 3 Dots Eyeliner ($9 for 0.9ml) is a black liquid eyeliner with a 3 dot felt tip. I have never seen a product quite like this before! The 3 dot design can be used to create a normal line, or you can use it to dot between the lashes, filling the gaps at the roots and creating a more polished look. The product dries quickly and is quite long lasting. It is also easily removable with normal makeup remover.
Karadium Line Hero Auto Gel Liner ($12 for 2.5g) This gel liner was randomly selected from either black, brown or silver white shades. I received black and although I already own a few black liners this one is quite unique as it contains tiny gold and silver pearls, giving it a subtle sparkle. The liner is really soft to apply, highly pigmented and being waterproof is long lasting.
Cheek Room Curl & Volume Mascara ($18 for 8g) is a black long-lasting waterproof mascara that dramatically volumizes for a sophisticated look. It has an hourglass shaped brush, much like TooFaced Better Than Sex mascara.
Cheek Room Eye Shadow ($8 for 5g) This was selected from one of three available colours – sweet pink, pink coral and violet. I got 10 Violet, which is a black/violet shade with pink and silver shimmers. It isn’t as highly pigmented as I expected but it can be built up and it has a lovely sheen when the light catches it.
Sally’s Box Friendly Collagen Eye Patch ($2 for a pair) Using on clean skin and resting the eyes for 20-30 minutes these hydro-gel eye patches deliver nutrition to the eye area. They also cool and soothe so great for irritated or puffy looking eyes. I am prone to allergies that affect my eyes and as a contact lens wearer often get tired eyes so I will save these for when they’re really needed. I’m sure they’ll be much appreciated!
Secret Stargirl 2 set in No. 11 Lovely Lash ($7 for 2 set) I don’t normally wear false lashes so this pushes me right out of my comfort zone. Nevertheless I will give them a whirl.
MDaida Wonder Eye Collagen Filler ($41 for 2.7g) A highly-enriched serum for the under eye area this is product is said to brighten and treat fine lines with one quick swipe of the applicator. It is free of parabens, mineral oil, TEA and artificial colours and fragrance.
MDaida Wonder Pen Concealer in 02 Natural Beige ($34 for 2.7g) This is a concealer with a click pen brush design. It is perfect for quick fix-ups, or to disguise dark circles and has SPF45 which is brilliant for the eye area which often gets forgotten when we apply sun protection.
The products in the Superbox are all full sized and i’m impressed that we have the full spectrum of eye products, from a serum and collagen patches, to a concealer and eye makeup. Cleverly Memebox have ensured that in this one box I can get a full look and once again have demonstrated that when it comes to curating exciting, interesting and great value beauty boxes they are really one of the front-runners.
As always there is a contents card enclosed which lists all the products and descriptions in English so you don’t need to worry if your Korean is non-existant! The total value of this box comes to $131 which is a far cry from the pretty bargainous $29 (just under £18) pricetag!
Unfortunately this box is no longer available however there are plenty of other amazing boxes to discover on the Memebox website including #73 F/W Natural Makeup and #64 Makeup Edition2 which would be perfect for makeup fans. But never fear skincare lovers, as Memebox has plenty in store for you with the Skincare Elixir and Scrub Box 2 (to name just two). Finally for fans of all things cute the 2nd collaboration box with CutiePieMarzia is still available (I can’t wait for mine)!
Memebox ships to around 50 destinations worldwide direct from Korea at a cost of $6.99 (approx £4.20) for UK standard shipping, which is quoted at taking between 10 and 2 days. However after shipping there are no further customs charges or taxes! Unlike a subscription based box service there is no ongoing commitment with Memebox; you can buy as few or as many boxes as you like.
You can browse all of Memebox’s collections and their online store here and if you see a box that takes your fancy use my exclusive code 753UW3 to get $5 off at checkout (only valid until 30th September so do hurry – if I get a new code I will update my post with it)!
