b49ba-jewel

Whether you consider yourself fair, medium, olive, dark, or anywhere in between, this box full of rich, saturated jewel hued goodies that are universally flattering and will look good on virtually anyone! Think dark wine reds, deep purples, gorgeous emeralds, and more decadent jewel tones – this beauty box will satisfy your every chromatic whim. Sneak some of these precious stone tones into your fall season makeup and beauty for your chicest look ever!

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.

I bought the Colorbox bundle which included the Electric Brights, Jewel Tones, and Pastel Hues all for $30 plus shipping. With a coupon code and a couple of points, it ended up costing me about $32 for the lot. This came out to just under $11 per box which is great. This bundle was also the first Memebox purchase I made, so the shipping date was months from when I ordered it. This is the Jewel Tones box which I thought sounded absolutely wonderful! The colours they described for the box sounded beautiful so I was excited about this one!

Let’s see what we got!

Color World Lip MousseColor World Lip Mousse Swatch

Color World Multi Lovely Finger Mousse Lip 704 So Hot Pink 1ea ($20)

This lip mousse is a combination of lipstick, lip gloss, and lip tint. It glides onto lips with a rich pigment payoff and a smooth, non-sticky finish.

I think that the colour of this is quite lovely, and even though I wouldn’t necessarily describe it as jewel toned, it is the most jewel toned thing in the box which makes me sad. This is a bit tricky to work with so I might need some practice. The texture of this is definitely mousse-like which is so strange but it feels so soft. The thing that I found is it gets all over your teeth, it comes off on everything, and it streaks from your lips so quickly. I’m not sure if I should be letting this set for a few minutes before I move my mouth but it was a bit of a mess.

  Color World Star PowderColor World Star Powder Swatch

Color World Star Powder 10g ($14)

Designed with the perfect mix of glitter and shine, Star Powder in Sparkle White creates a dramatic light-catching effect and brings instant sophistication to any makeup look. It coats over skin for a velvety smooth texture, sparkling with glowing elegance. Use it as a highlight, an eye shadow, or a facial & body glitter powder.

I can honestly say I have never felt the need to use a facial glitter powder. I got the shade 05 Violet but could have also gotten 01 White or 06 White Green. I think I am glad that I got the violet colour because I already have a white and I’m not sure how white green would look. I think this is a nice winter/holiday kind of colour but I’m not sure if it works year round. There also isn’t any kind of filter for this so it can be quite messy with so much loose powder.

   Color World Lip GlossColor World Lip Gloss Swatch

Color World Kiss The Beads Lip Gloss 13 ml ($18)

A classic lip gloss that gives an intense shine and moisture from a blend of ceramide, natural essential oil, coenzyme Q10, and squalane. Despite its glossy visual, it’s non-sticky, long-lasting, and lightweight.

I’m going to be honest. I already hate this lip gloss. I’m not the biggest lip gloss fan in general but this one is bad. This was randomly selected from 02 Red Gemstone and 03 Red Gemstone. How confusing is that…Anyways, I got 02 Red Gemstone which is the one that looks more red than pink. If you look at the swatch above, beside the lip mousse, it is hardly pigmented at all. Not only that, it was so sticky. As soon as I swatched it, I was appalled at how sticky it was. I don’t see myself using this one.

   Color World Stick ShadowColor World Stick Shadow Swatch

Color World Jewelish Stick Shadow 09 Crystal Silver 10g ($13)

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

I actually do like the colour of this (bottom/left swatch seen above). It is a nice silver and could look really nice this time of year with the cold weather and the holidays. It did glide on smoothly so I would like to see how it lasts on the eyes. Not a bad product.

Overall I am disappointed with this. The jewel tones they described for this box were rich, deep, and beautiful sounding. They decided to go with more white-ish crystal type jewel tones which I don’t prefer at all. I love lip products and the mousse I’m not sure about and the gloss won’t be used. Overall I’m not thrilled. The retail value for this box is only about $65. Stay tuned for the Pastel Hues box.
