Memebox Special Box #43 K-Style 3 Review

The box reviewed was sponsored by Memebox. All thoughts and opinions expressed are mine and 100% honest.

Hello everyone! 

Did you all have a good Halloween? Be careful not to overdose on the candy and sweets! 

Today I'll be reviewing another Memebox, the Special Box #43 K-Style 3. Previously I reviewed the K-Style 2 box and liked it, even though it was missing one product. However, it seems like Memebox has filled in the missing hole (or product) with this box! Before I move on with the review though, here's some information about Memebox for those who don't know. 

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.

Here is the information card, which includes the details, descriptions, and instructions on every product:
(Once again, please excuse the poor quality of the photos. OTL I tried something new with my camera the other day but it seems like it didn't work out well at all)

1. Secret Kiss Face Fit Strobe Cream
시크릿키 페이스 핏 스트롭 크림
Size: 30ml (full size)
Value: $11 (retail price: 9,000원)

I just realized that Secret Kiss is actually a line under the brand Secret Key. Anyways~ From the description, it sounds like its functions are similar to the Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer, but that it can also be used as a primer. It doesn't really have a scent despite the flower extracts. And 6 kinds of gemstone powders? Sounds luxurious. I've tried this a few times and it really does a good job in illuminating your face and giving it that 3D voluminous look. 

2. Vella Flower B.B 
벨라 플라워 플라워 비비
Size: 15ml (full size)
Value: $26 (retail price: 18,000원)

Although I was interested in this in the beginning, can you guess why it got rejected almost immediately? If you guessed that it has a strong floral scent then you're right! My mom was watching me going through the products though, and when she saw this she was like "Is that a BB cream?" with excitement in her voice. So now I've passed this on to her. The formula is great and all, but it just had to smell like flowers. OTL 

3. Tony Moly 7 Days Tattoo Eyebrow (02 Dark Brown)
토니모리 7DAYS 타투 아이브로우 (2호 다크브라운)
Size: 0.8ml (full size)
Value: $8 (retail price: 7,000원)

Look at the detailed packaging! It kind of reminds me of Henna tattoo patterns. The packaging is just like a liquid eyeliner, only this is for your brows. I'm really doubtful about this actually being able to last for a couple days without fading, considering how most people wash their face at least twice a day. I'm willing to give it a try though, and see how it performs. Maybe it'll last, maybe it won't. Also, the missing product from the K-Style 2 box has been found! Huzzah!

4. Style Y Soft Fit Mix & Math Pencil and Powder Shadow
스타일와이 소프트 핏 믹스 매치 펜슬앤파우더 섀도우
Size: 0.5g (full size)
Value: $9 (retail price: 7,500원)

This is another one of those 2-in-1 eye makeup products that would be great for those who are just getting into makeup. I received this in 02 Brown Liner & Peach Tip, and the peach shadow is really pretty. I haven't tried this yet, and I'm not sure I will due to the increasing amount of eyeliners I have now, but this looks like a pretty nice product. 

5. Style Y Color Fit Creamy Lip & Cheek 
스타일와이 컬러 핏 크리미 립앤치크
Size: 5ml (full size)
Value: $13 (retail price: 10,800원)

The packaging for this is pretty nice, I like how the heart is composed of a triangles. I got this is 02 Smoothie Pink, and sadly it isn't really my color so I'll be passing this on to a friend instead. From the outside the texture looks really nice and similar to the Innisfree Creamy Tint Lip Mousse.

6. Color World Jewelish Stick Shadow
칼라월드 쥬얼리쉬 스틱 섀도우
Size: 10g
Value: $13 (retail price: 11,000원)

It seems like shadow sticks are popular these days, since I also received one from Shara Shara in the K-Style 2 box. The packaging for this feels really sturdy! It doesn't feel like the tube/cap is made out of plastic, since it's kind of heavy. Maybe some sort of light metal since it feels cool to the touch? Either way thumbs up for the not flimsy and cheap packaging most shadow sticks have. However the color for this is a little too crazy for me so I won't be using this. 

Total value: $80 (total retail price value: 63,300원)

My thoughts:

In terms of the types of products this box has included, it's perfect! You have everything you need for a full-face makeup. The stick shadow color is a bit out there for me, but everything else is really nice. A well-rounded box in my opinion, and it's not missing a single thing.

What do you think of this Memebox? Which product(s) would you be interested in the most? 


  1. Usually I dont get satisfied with products in Memebox, but this one seems like a good combo :)

  2. I've found Memeboxes to either be a hit, miss or in-between those two. This one is definitely a good combination~ Thank you for reading Merve! ^^

  3. Some very interesting products. I'm really curious about the brow product. Haven't tried many that are liquid!

  4. It's actually quite nice! It looks really natural, but the lasting-for-days thing is kind of a joke. It fades quite a bit just by washing your face. Thanks for reading Bethany! :)

  5. All so lovely packaging, natural I like ^^

    恵美より ♥
