There's a New Box in Town! Memebox Special #28 All About Eyes - Review

My love of beauty boxes started a long time ago. First with Loose Button, then Glymm, Ipsy followed shortly after and has been my box of choice for some time now. However, lately I've been underwhelmed with what Ipsy has been providing. The samples and brands are starting to repeat and repeat and... you get my point. And when the free Ipsy point bonuses start wowing more then the actual subscription it is time to say goodbye. Which I did the other day...goodbye Ipsy...and hello Memebox!

Honestly, Memebox isn't a box I thought I would normally go for. Although, I've heard many great things about Korean beauty products, I've always been hesitant about using them, because safety and industry standards are so different there then here in Canada. Memebox sent me this box to try out and review, and after a couple weeks of testing I'm happy to say that I am loving these products and subscription! My bank account is already crying...

I received the Memebox Special #28 All About Eyes box that retails for $29 + $6.99 S&H.

About the Box

Shut your lips and let your eyes do the talking. Need a lift? Wrinkles, bags, crow's-feet - they don't stand a chance against this easy plan. Pamper and brighten eyes with eye treatments that work to diminish the look of dark circles, under eye shadows and fine lines. Go from daytime to lush evening eyes in a flash with versatile coloured shadows and easy glide-on liners! Enhance your eyes with a do-all mascara that promises lush, defined, mile-long layers with the swipe of a wand!

YniPicture-Esque 3 Dots Eyeliner 0.9ml

Retail Value: $9
The 3 Dots Eyeliner comes with a three-end brush which works to thoroughly fill in between your lashes and to offer a deeper high definition eye makeup while its specially formulated ink adheres to skin and dries quickly for a lasting finish. Plus, it's strong against water, sebum, and sweat but can be easily removed with warm water and there's no need for an intense makeup remover.

The concept of this eyeliner is so cool! On days when I don't want to wear much makeup I still like to define my eyes a bit by smudging a pencil liner in my water line. However, this liner normally slides to the corners of my eyes halfway through the day. This liner was super easy to use and looked very natural when just dotted between the lashes. Plus if you turn this liner and use the side you can achieve a normal liquid liner look.

Karadium Line Hero Auto Gel Liner Pencil 2.5g in Real Brown

Retail Value:$12
Softly gliding onto eyelid for featuring a deep eye makeup with subtle gold and silver pearls, the Line Hero Auto Gel Liner Pencil is an auto-type liner which only takes 10 seconds to dry after application and is entirely waterproof with its strong water-resistant formula.

The glitter in this liner is gorgeous, I just wish it was a bit more pigmented. Above is one swipe and it is quite faint. What is super impressive about this liner though is that when they say water-resistant they mean it. It would not budge! I used soap and water, makeup remover wipes, and eye makeup remover. It took an oil based makeup remover and lots of scrubbing and rubbing to remover this swatch from my hand. Ive yet to use it on my eyes because I don't want to have to rub my eyes that hard to remove it.

Cheek Room Eye Shadow 5g in Violet

Retail Value: $8
Velvety soft from its Art Pearl formula and rich in minerals from its pearl and coral powders, Cheek Room's popular Eye Shadow is highly resistant to sebum, water,or sweat and effective in maintaining its clean, natural pastel colour radiance all day long.

Gosh darn I love this colour! The deep purple defines my eyes, and makes the green of my eyes pop! Also the sheen and duo chrome that the pearl in it offers, just makes it so eye catching. And like with the Gel Liner Pencil it is super long wearing. One swipe of this eyeshadow is pigmented beyond belief and requires makeup remover to wash away.

MDaida Wonder Eye Volume Filler 2.7g

Retail Value: $41
MDaida's Wonder Eye Volume Filler is a highly-enriched serum for under the eyes. It works to both brighten and treat fine wrinkles and lines under your eyes with one quick click. Its formula is free of any parabens, mineral oil, TEA, benzophenon, artificial colouring and artificial fragrance, thus extremely gentle to skin,

Although, I don't think I need products like this yet, it it never to early to start using them. This slightly white cream didn't do much that was noticeable after one application, but Ill report back after continuous use.

MDaida Wonder Pen Concealer SPF45 PA++ 2.7g

Retail Value: $34
A concealer personally recommended by various makeup artists in Korea, the Wonder Pen Concealer actually works wonders with its easy-to-click and pen-like brush design. It's the perfect item to carry around in your pouch for quick fix-ups or a finishing touch to highlight your dull and darkened eye contours.

Just when I needed concealer this came and rocked my world! This concealer is the perfect shade for me and blends effortless into my skin to conceal and highlight areas of my face. What I love is that it works great for both under the eyes and on blemishes.

Sally's Box Friendly Collagen Eye Patch 4.5g x 2

Retail Value:$2
This is a hydro-gel type eye patch for delivering rich moisture and nutrition to dry, sensitive, or ageing eye contours. The collagen formula works to tighten up sagging skin and also to soothe, cool, and replenish the sensitive under-eye area.

So, Ive used a product like this before from Frownies, and really disliked it. I find they don't really do anything and are kind of a waste of time. This is definitely my least favourite item in the box and I probably wont ever use it.

Secret-Stargirl S-Style 2 set in Lovely Eye

Retail Value: $7
Add more definition and volume to your eyes with Secret-Stargirl's popular girl-group lashes that come in 5 different styles to match your mood and day!

My natural lashes are longer then these falsies, but I think I'm still going to try them out. I like the super points in these and just need to find an event to wear them too.

Cheek Room Curl & Volume Mascara 8g

Retail Value: $18
A lavishly long-lasting waterproof mascara that dramatically volumizes, for a sophisticated look. It gives plush, glam volume, uses micro-dispersion system that is perfectly waterproof and does not smudge.

This brush on this mascara is very intriguing and gives me quite the va va voom lashes. I get no flaking or transferring during the day, and it holds a curl all day long. The only downside is that it has a strong chemical smell.

  3. Did you just say your natural lashes are longer than the falsies?! So jealous of you right now lol

  4. This looks like a great box! I love that purple colour. I have a Prestige eyeliner that has triple dot end, and it's quite fun. Something slightly different from expected.

  5. Love the idea of receiving Korean products. The concealer looks great!
