Memebox is a beauty subscription box service with a twist. Instead of a recurring subscription, you actually pay per box, and each box has a theme. In this case, the theme is "Etude House" - i.e. all items included in this box is from the brand Etude House. Unfortunately, it has been a while since new boxes has been released. It seems like Memebox is concentrating on selling individual products rather than a "mystery" box. Whilst I'm sad that memebox hasn't released any new boxes, my wallet is currently jumping for joy.
Etude House is one of my favourite Korean brands. I really like their makeup products, and their nail polish remover is definitely holy grail stuff. I was looking forward to seeing a heap of makeup in this box, and was a bit disappointed with what was included. As this is a Superbox, all products included are full-sized, which is a plus considering this box set me back USD$30.99 including shipping (with a $5 coupon).
1. Brow Mascara in 02 Light Brown - 4.5g (RRP: $7.00)
"A mascara for your brows! Non-smudging, long-lasting and containing allantoin, beeswax, and carnauba wax components rich in nutrition, this Brow Mascara from Etude House offers a naturally defined and youthful-looking arches with just a quick smudge!
How to use: Swipe through with the brow mascara towards the opposite direction the brow hair grows and brush along the tail of your brows for a nice shape."
I'm not sure about the colour of this brow mascara. Although I do have blonde hair now and this would probably suit me now than when I had my natural dark brown/black hair. However, looking at swatches online, it looks like it leans orange brown, and I'm just really hesitant in trying this. Might try to sell it.
2. Oh My Lash Mascara 01 Top Coat - 8.5g (RRP: $5.00)
"Ever heard of a top coat for your lashes? Create translucent and glossy lashes by applying it alone, or give it a non-smudging and long-lasting finish to your regular eye makeup by applying it over mascara.
How to use: Apply after a regular mascara. Do not be alarmed if the brush and the formula gradually blackens since it's the black ink from the mascara."
I'm on the fence about this product too. Whilst it is an interesting product, it just doesn't seem like a product I'd reach for, as I'm a creature of habit and tend to only use black mascaras. But I may just eat my words if this turns out amazing and something I can't live without.
3. Moistfull Collagen Cream - 60ml (RRP: $18.00)
"Specially formulated with marine collagen and mucilage from baobab trees, the famous Moistfull Collagen Cream is a gentle, deeply moisturizing, and skin firming facial cream. It's fast-absorbing and lightweight in texture as well, making it a suitable moisturizer for both the summer and winter times.
How to use: Apply directly to face and pat it in for full absorbance."
I've read a few reviews on this Collagen Cream and most of them do not recommend this cream for oily skin, which is what I have. I will probably give this away.
