Thinking pastel shades are for wallflowers? So cliché. This season, Jordan-almond pastel colours have gone totally badass and totally edgy! Wear these universally flattering pastel perfections on the eyes, lips, and face to brighten up the complexion and add a mouthwatering punch of colour! Depending on how much you layer on, you can go from girl-next-door to full on vamp for a wide range of looks! With a pinkish pout, soft pastel eyes, a simple wash of colour on the face, there’s virtually no room for error! We’ll show you how!
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 Pastel Hues box which I liked the sound of. I was hoping there would be a nice light lipstick or something like that.
Let’s see what we have!
Revecen Moisture Shine Lip Gloss 7 ml ($16)
Enriched with olive oil, this Moisture Shine Lip Gloss in sheer pink and orange shades create delicately glittering and plump lips while leaving lips super moist and supply without being sticky at all.
The colour choices for this product were #02 Peach Orange and #11 Apricot Pink. I got #11 Apricot Pink which I was happy about because it is the less orange shade. I have recently gotten the White version of this gloss and it really isn’t sticky at all so that’s nice. I have so many glosses on the go at the moment so this probably won’t be used for awhile.
Revecen Color Eye Shadow 3.1g ($10)
Formulated with various moisturizing minerals. Revecen’s Color eye Shadows are highly adhesive, water-proof, smudge-proof and produce rich pigment payoff with a long-lasting silky touch. To be worn alone or blend in with complimentary shades.
I got the shade B102 Pearl Light Salmon but you could have also gotten B167 Pearl Turquoise. I am glad that I got the pink shade because I wouldn’t know how to wear a pastel turquoise. I tried to swatch this and the lip gloss but neither showed up too well on camera. This is a fairly light pink so it might be a nice base or blending colour.
Revecen Perfect Star Powder 3g ($11)
Designed with the perfect mix of colour and shine, the Perfect Star Powder creates dramatic light-catching effects and brings instant sophistication to any makeup look. Layer it on top of contrasting eye shadow colours to create unique multi-dimensional effects, or use it alone for instant elegance!
This is another one that is fairly messy because it is a loose powder. I got the colour #08 Yellow and the other options were #03 Pink, #10 Light Brown, and #14 Ivory. The yellow looked a little intimidating at first but its more of a gold kind of shade so I think it is something I can work with fairly well. I am happy with this product.
Revecen Face Control Foundation 17g ($22)
This unique Face Control Foundation works to cover up skin imperfections and light up dull, darkened skin tone for a more refined, evenly balanced, and healthier-looking finish. Plus it contains natural preservatives such as green tea extracts and magnolia extracts, and thus gently and suitable for all skin types.
How to Use: Use a makeup sponge or your finger to apply the hard-type foundation evenly over your face. Make sure to pat it in for full absorbance.
I got the colour #000 Light Yellow but could have also gotten #001 Mint. I am glad I didn’t get the mint because green counteracts redness which isn’t really an issue for me. Yellow is supposed to help with purple colouring and I have terrible hereditary dark circles so I am interested in seeing if this helps hide those at all. I know that the purple version of this product was one of the ones in the Cutiepie Marzia 2 box which everyone hates so much, so I’m surprised they went with this type of product from the same brand again.
Overally, I think that this is the colorbox that stuck the most to the theme they described. I don’t love Revecen as a brand but I will get use out of the products (at least to try) so we will see how it goes. This was the box with the lowest retail value, coming in at $59. I am glad I have gotten Memeboxes since I ordered this because if I was only basing my opinion of them on these boxes, I would be disappointed.
