Tis the season for gorgeous! Sparkle just as brightly as the holiday lights with festive K-Beauty glitz and glam! Whether you prefer subtle shine or want to rock full-blown fab, there’s a gorgeous holiday party look waiting for you in this box! With this festive K-Beauty holiday makeup essentials box, you’ll be able to step outside the traditional party look and pull together a perfect party look. Don’t miss out on this coolest, most luxurious collection – perfect to give, love, or hoard for yourself!
Out of the two boxes in the Christmas bundle, this was the one that I was more excited about. I have a problem where I tend to hoard makeup and it takes me forever to get through because I have too many products to use. I love it though! One worry was that this would be too glittery just because it was a holiday box.
If you have not heard of Memebox, it is a Korean beauty box that contains a variety of skin care, makeup, and other beauty products. There are several types of boxes, including: memeboxes, superboxes, nakedboxes, and boxes that are set around a particular theme. The prices vary depending on the type of box that you get and can range from $15-$80 I believe. Most of the regular boxes are $23 and then you also have to pay $6.99 shipping for each box. You have to keep an eye on the shipping dates for each box because it can be months away, that way you aren’t frustrated wondering why the shipping takes so long. Sometimes if boxes are due to ship at the same time, they will have bundles so that there is only one shipping cost.
Okay, let’s see what items came in this Memebox!
Peripera Wholly Deep Jewel Pot #6 Burgundy 3g ($29)
Glam up your eyes with multi-angle jewel glitters that contain real diamond and amethyst powders for extra radiant, sparkling holiday season! Fool-proof pearly eye pigments last all day and all night! Channel your inner Beauty Queen in no time!
How to Use: Take out an adequate amount on its lid and use your fingers to apply it onto your eyelids. Do not throw away the inner lid as it’s needed to keep the formula moist and intact.
Of course the first thing I did when I opened this was throw away the inner lid. Then I decided to read the card and had to take it back out. The colour of this eye shadow is beautiful! I think it will be perfect for holiday parties and I can’t wait to actually try it out! It does have glitter in it so I hope the fallout from this isn’t too bad because I really do like it! Also, $29 for an eye shadow?! Ahhhhh…I can’t see myself actually paying that much for a single shadow but Memebox does tend to inflate their prices. However, if there are actual diamond and amethyst powders in this than maybe the price is justified.
Deoproce White Flower B.B Cream SPF35 PA+++ 30g ($12)
Enriched with a blend of lotus, lily, and peony extracts, Deoproce’s White Flower B.B Cream combines the moisturizing and protective powers of a skincare product with the complexion-perfecting and tone balancing properties of a foundation. Its featherweight texture smoothly coats over skin with long-lasting adherence, leaving the skin velvety soft and glowing with youthful radiance.
The two colours that you could have gotten were #21 Natural Beige and #23 Sand Beige. I got #21 which I am pretty happy about because I am pretty pale and Sand Beige sounds like it could be too dark for my skin tone. I have only tested this on my hand but it seems like it blends out pretty well. I am hoping that it blends well on my face and provides an alright coverage (not that I need a ton of coverage but it is nice to have a little bit).
Vivito Painting Jelly Tint RD02 Squeeze Cherry 5.5g ($29)
A moisturizing jelly-type tint with a water gel formula enriched with pomegranate, mulberry, fig, and Vitamin E. It smoothly melts onto dry, colourless lips for instant hydration, rejuvenation, and long-lasting colour radiance.
How to Use: Apply 2-3 drops on the center of lips and blend it outwards for natural gradiation, or layer it on multiple times to create the full lip look.
This product was a little confusing and I know that others had the same confusion. The card says that this colour is supposed to be RD02 Squeeze Cherry but the sticker on the actual box says it is RD01 Squeeze Berry. Not only that, but the picture on the card looks like it should be a berry colour but then the one we received looks like a cherry red. So I’m not sure which one we were actually supposed to get. I feel like I would have preferred the berry.
In terms of wearing this, I feel like I need some practice with it. When I swatched it on my hand, there was a small patch that stayed tinted after I had washed it off. However, when I put it on my lips, it seeped into my mouth (and tasted horrendous!) and didn’t really colour all my lips that well. This was probably user error so I would like to see how it can really perform.
Cool Enough Studio The Mirror 1 ea ($15)
Still bringing around a bit fat mirror? Cool Enough Studio presents ‘The Mirror’ – the thinnest, most stylishly designed mirror for ladies to carry it around with them to glamorous holiday & year-end parties in their pretty purses.
I do think that this is a neat idea, and I love that it comes with a little pouch to protect it somewhat while it’s in your purse. The shape of this is a little bit awkward. I think I would prefer something that is more square so I can see more than a tiny part of my face at a time. Also, I’m not sure why all four sides are mirrored, unless you and a friend want to check yourselves out at the same time. Not bad though, I will probably throw this into my work bag.
Dearberry Rockcat Girl Waterproof Pencil Liner Purple 7g ($5)
Dearberry Rockcat Girl Eyeliner provides budge-resistant radiance in sophisticated deep purple with an easy-glide, creamy texture. Definitely a must-have for a refined, chic holiday makeup fit for any and all occasions!
This purple is more of a charcoal grey kind of colour with a purple tint which I am really happy about! I am more comfortable wearing black eyeliners so I feel like this is a nice way to ease into coloured liners. Also, since my eyes are brown, purple tends to complement that very well. This definitely is waterproof, at least when it is swatched on my hand. I had to use make up remover to get it off so I hope that it will be as resilient when it’s on my eyelids. Excited to try this out!
Eclipse Poppy Red & Fresh Green 15ml x 2ea ($7)
Go festive with Eclipse’s holiday red & green nail colours – vibrant and long-lasting in radiance and easy to apply and quick to try in formula!
I really do love nail polish so I am happy they included some festive colours in this box. I think that next week I will use both of these colours to have some nice Christmas nails. I am hoping that these actually are long-lasting because I really don’t like nail polish that is is quick to chip.
For me this is a pretty good box! I think that they did a good job of sticking to the festive, holiday theme which is what I was hoping they would do. I payed about $23 for this box including shipping and the total retail value (according to Memebox) is $97. Definitely a good box for me!
