Memebox Color Box #1 (Red) Review + Coupon

After trying my first Memebox (pronounced "Mi-mi-box") recently, I was excited to try more.  Memebox is a beauty box company that sends the best in Korean beauty, with a huge range of skincare and cosmetics to offer.  You can do one-time purchases of their limited edition boxes, or you can shop for individual products.

Colorbox #1 is all about Red!  I prefer getting color cosmetics more than skincare samples, so the fact that Memebox offers these color boxes is something that I appreciate.  This one is still available on their website and costs $15.  I think that's an amazing price for five full-sized products!  If red isn't your color, they also have blue and orange Colorboxes.

  • Cheek Room Two Color Lip Gloss in #6 Red ($12) - This cute lip gloss has two colors in one.  When I first opened it I thought the colors had separated, but then I read the informational card that came with the box and realized that it's supposed to be that way.  I think the packaging on this is adorably retro, and I think the color(s) will be flattering.

  • Dearberry Today Nail Lacquer in #21 Pink Sprinkling ($3) - I love nail polish so I was happy to receive one in this box!  I really like the color, it's a pink/red cream that applies "very thinly yet vividly," according to the info card.
  • L'OCEAN Eye Shadow in L-35 Red ($10) - I have to be honest, this scares me.  I've never in my life used, or even thought about using, a red eyeshadow.  I can't even think of a time when I would need to wear it.  But I'm sure a search of red looks will bring up something interesting to try, and stepping outside of my comfort zone isn't a bad thing to do!
  • Dearberry Flirt Lipstick in 08 Red Parade ($12) - Red lipsticks must be big in Korea because this is the second in two boxes I've received.  I rarely wear a red lip, but again, this gives me the opportunity to try something new (a photo of the actual lipstick are after the "read more").
  • Tosowoong Gel Pencil Liner in 04 Burgundy ($10) - I'm glad Memebox included this because I definitely need a liner when wearing lipstick.  I hope this pairs well with the Flirt lipstick because it's a little bit darker, but we'll see.  If not, I'll buy a lipstick to match it (photo of the liner after the "read more").
Bottom Line: This box had a total retail value of $47, which is an amazing deal for only $15!  I think Memebox is so fun, and I love that they have so many different boxes to choose from.  The only problem is that I want to buy them all, but that wouldn't be the most budget-friendly thing for me right now.

  1. I love these kind of boxes because it just gives you fairly random stuff, and basically nudges you to get out of your comfort zone! Hello, red eyeshadow! 8D Thanks for the box review, Danielle! Good to find your blog. c:
