Memebox Special Box #33 K-Style 2 Review

This review was sponsored by Memebox. All thoughts and opinions expressed are mine and 100% honest.

Hello my lovely ice princesses! 
Omg I can't believe the real ice princess, Jessica, is gone from SNSD just like that ;__; 

It has been a rough time for those who follow the KPOP industry, since recently there has been a couple news breaking articles that were released. However, that isn't going to stop me from posting a review (after I got over my initial shock and disbelief, that is). Allow me to introduce to you another Memebox- the Special Box #33: K-Style 2. But before I do that, let me tell you a little bit about this company. 

Memebox, pronounced "Mi-mi-box", is a Korean beauty box and e-commerce retailer that is based in Korea. Currently the #1 beauty box provider in Korea, they started shipping to the US and other countries (see the list here to see which countries they ship to) back in November 2013. They do not offer monthly subscription plans, but they're constantly releasing new boxes every month. At the moment they carry four different types of beauty boxes: 

  • Memebox Global BoxThe original Memebox ($23 + shipping) that comes with 4-8 full-sized products and deluxe samples.
  • Memebox Special Edition: Designed to meet various concerns, beauty trends, and seasonal needs, this box also comes with 4-8 full-sized products and deluxe samples. The prices range from $19-$32 + shipping. 
  • Superbox: Made up of full-sized products only, each Superbox comes with its own theme, designed to target specific concerns or collaborations with a brand. Prices start at $19 + shipping. 
  • Luckybox: Products in this box are based on selections from past Memeboxes. Luckyboxes aren't released as frequently as the other boxes, and are priced at $23 + shipping with 4-8 full-sized products and deluxe samples.
In addition to beauty boxes, Memebox also has a Memeshop where they sell products from numerous Korean cosmetic and skincare brands. The box I will be reviewing today is a Memebox Special Edition.

The information card with the details, descriptions, and instructions for each product: 
1. Royal Nature Pantone Shadeliner
로얄뷰티팬톤 쉐이드라이너
Size: 0.8g (full size)
Value: $12 (retail price: 10,000원)

Apparently this is an eye makeup product that can be used as both an eyeliner and an eyeshadow, hence the name "shadeliner". I received this in the shade 476C Sweetly You, a dark brown color. I've tried this once so far, and I like how the color is perfect for natural looks. I'm really glad to have gotten the brown one, since my other brown felt tip liner is just starting to run out. 

2. Secret-Stargirl S-Style 2 set
시크릿스타걸 속눈썹 2Set (S-Style)
Size: 2 sets (full size)
Value: $7 (retail price: 7,000원)

It looks like Memebox made a mistake and wrote down the wrong product description on the info card, since it's talking about something called "Downy Cheek".  lol This, my dear Memebox, is not a cheek product. However, luckily I was able to find the descriptions online. There were 2 possible styles you could've received, and the one I got (No. 14 Delicate Eye), is supposedly the "style that creates the most natural eyes which is not too long or short". I was pretty happy to find two pairs of falsies in this box, since I've never tried them before. Although knowing clumsy me, I'll end up getting glue all over the place... OTL 

3. Eglips Real Color Lip Lacquer 
이글립스 리얼컬러 립라커
Size: 6g (full size)
Value: $14 (retail price: 12,000원)

I'm not going to lie. The first time I saw this product, I was really disappointed. I thought it would be exactly like the Etude House Color Lips Fit, which were, in my opinion, pretty bad.  Why did I jump to this conclusion? Because the scent and texture of both products are incredibly similar. They both even have a similar powdery finish, but that's where the similarities end. This lip lacquer from Eglips is pretty amazing. The color is gorgeous, it spreads easily, and it has a matte finish that isn't drying but instead somewhat moisturizing. And so the lesson of the day? Don't judge a book by its cover, or in this case, a lip product. 

4. RiRe Luxe Mirror Eyeliner Black
리르 룩스 리퀴드 아이라이너
Size: 1 full-sized product
Value: $14 (retail price: 12,000원)

Liquid liners are perfect for creating a well defined line but they're difficult to use (for an eye makeup beginner like me), and virtually impossible to apply without a mirror. With this packaging, you don't need to carry around a compact mirror and you can still touch up your eyeliner anytime! Personally I think the packaging is just genius. Even though the description says it washes off easily though... it's still a pain to remove. 

5. Shara Shara Color Eyes Stick Shadow 

샤라샤라컬러아이즈 스틱 섀도

Size: 1.4g (full size)
Value: $7 (retail price: 6,000원)

Stick shadows... I've never tried them before, but the mention of them always reminds me of a time back in 7th grade when a girl was talking crap about someone else. She was saying how this other girl uses eyeshadows in a stick form, and how weird and awful they look. At that time, I had little to no experience with makeup, so the idea of an eyeshadow stick was definitely weird and interesting to me. However, I strongly disagree on the awful part (and honestly, they didn't look bad at all at that time, she was just being mean). I find these a lot easier to apply than regular glitter eyeshadows. Out of the two possible options, I received this in GL01 Caramel Gold. 

6. Original Raw Ten Cushion Foundation 
오리지널 로우 텐 쿠션 파운데이션 튜브
Size: 13g (full size)
Value: $32 (retail price: 16,500원)

I think the reason Memebox put the value as $32 is because the cushion version of this product is 32,000원, however the one in the tube is not. Nevertheless it still is a pretty pricey product. Apparently this is a 5-in-1 product, but it contains 10 features (hence the 10 in its name). I'm always willing to try new foundations so I can't wait to see how this one will perform. 

Total value: $86 (total retail price value: 63,500원)

My thoughts: 

I have one complaint. Just one. When you think of K-style makeup, you think of perfect, radiant skin, gradient lips,  bright, sparkly eyes, and straight brows. Why are there no brow products in this box? When you look at every single Korean celebrity, almost all of them have straight eyebrows to give them that youthful look. A K-style box, yet it's missing one of the most important parts of K-style makeup. (mini rant done lol).

Personally I think this is a pretty nice box since it gives you all the products you need for a near full-face makeup. I'm happy with everything that was included, since (based on the descriptions and what I've tried so far) all the products seem like they are of good quality. I was actually considering purchasing an Etude House Bling Bling Eye Stick in the exact same color as the Shara Shara one I received, so yay ^^ I was also curious about the brand Eglips after seeing them on BeautynetKorea since the prices were really cheap, so I'm glad I was able to try a product from them through this box. 

Are you interested in trying out Memebox? Although the K-Style 2 box is sold out, Memebox just recently released the K-Style 4 box, so make sure to get that one before it's sold out if you like what you saw in this box. Other than that, there are numerous other boxes that Memebox has released this month as well, so be sure to check them out! Apparently Memebox is planning to collaborate with 3 "Meme beauties" this month (they've already introduced the first one with Vagabound Youth), so keep a lookout for the other two. Here are some coupon codes that are available right now: 

A69AQY $5 off any purchase (expires 10/31)

P.S. Keep a lookout on my blog for a giveaway that I'll be hosting soon with Memebox!


  1. This looked like such a good Memebox! Personally I would love the eyeliner (because that packaging to too cool and so efficient) and maybe the shadowstick. I think the idea of eyeshadow stick is really cool though I wonder how long it would last and if it could be used like an alternative for eyeliner.

  2. I agree, the packaging of the eyeliner is pretty awesome! I haven't used the stick shadow often enough to know for sure, but from what I've seen so far its lasting power is okay. I personally find it a bit too thick to use as an eyeliner, since it's impossible to draw a thin, accurate line with it. Thanks for reading Zaire! ^^

  3. Ohh my I have not seen an eyeliner which has a mirror on it before~ ^ w ^
    How handy! ^ u ^

  4. Isn't it? It's perfect for whenever you go out since you can make touch-ups anytime and anywhere! ^^ Thanks for reading Paige~

  5. This seems like a well-rounded memebox however I agree that it's missing a brow product in the box! I've two Etude House Bling Bling Eye Sticks but I totally ditched them lol.

  6. It is pretty well-rounded! Except for the brow product. But it is a nice box. I haven't really used the Shara Shara one that often as well, haha. Even though I don't use eyeshadows that often, I feel like they're better than the stick version. Thank you for reading!
