    Memebox Skinfood & The Face Shop Box

    Agreed. If one thing I hope Meme will allow us to do (even if its for a limited time) is to choose what we want in our box. like a "Make your own memebox" and have products for us to choose from. In general, the value isn' t that great, but they each contain something I been wanting to try so I also just bought the Innisfree box that just got release...

  3. Hey everyone~ Well Meme released the skinfood box & the face shop box recently, and of course, I went and purchase it. (I'm literally going broke because of them....) Anyways, got my box today and here are what's in the two boxes. I purchase them as a value set with the express shipping. Literally came to me (I'm location in the US, GA to be exact) in a day day when it got ship on the 29th (yesterday). Express indeed! LOL. FACE SHOP (all these are full size) 1. Calendula Eden Essential Moisture Cream (50ml) 2. Lovely Me:ex Pastel Cushion Blusher (5g) this product has 5 color ranges you randomly get: 01 Rose Cushion; 02 Coral Cushion; 03 Plum Cushion; 04 Pink Cushion; or 05 Peach Cushion. I got 03 Plum Cushion which is like a med-light pinkish color (nowhere near "plum" color). Also it comes with the white fluffy cushion powder thing that you can use to apply it with. IDK what's it call. sorry. 3. Lovely Me:ex Mini Pet Hand Cream (30ml) 4 kinds of hand cream you randomly get: Baby Powder; Sweet Fruits; White Floral; or Fruity Floral. I got Baby Powder. the packaging is cute. It's in a small (tiny) pot with a lid that has an animal. cuteeeeee! 4. Lovely Me:ex Dessert Lip Balm (6g) 3 different balm you randomly get: 01 Strawberry; 02 Orange; or 03 Honey. I got 01 Strawberry. Smells pretty nice. 5. Lovely Me:ex You&Eyes 05 Sand Brown (1.6g) It's an eyeshadow that is a brownish-dark tanish color with a hint of shimmer (not exactly glittery type ---more shimmery). Looking in real life, it seems to me that the shimmer has a hint of gold reflection to it.6. Milk Plus Calming Moisture Body Lotion (300ml) Impression: Not bad. Will definitely use these items..especially the lip balm and hand cream since it's getting colder now . Not much of a blush type of girl, but eh..might try it out since the color of the blush doesn't look too intimidating. Moisture cream and body lotion is going to go into my "try-out-lotion/cream" pile that I have lined up in rows against the wall on the table. The eyeshadow, I will probably not use for a bit since 1. I'm not much of a shimmer eyeshadow color and 2. i have so much eyeshadows I have yet to even open, let alone touch. sad sad sad. Oh and the box itself is a but smaller than the usual.. SKINFOOD (all these are full size) 1. Facial Water Vita-C Cream (75g) 2. Black Sugar Mask Wash Off (100g) 3. Egg White Pore Meringue Foam (200ml) 4. Tomato Whitening Toner (180ml) 5. Choco Eyebrow Powder Cake (4g) 2 different kinds you randomly get: 01 Grey Khaki Black; or 02 Grey Brown. Comes with a small brow brush. Has 2 color in them. (almost similar to ELF eyebrow powder duo) I got 01 Grey Khaki Black although you can barely tell it's "black". Impression: The products are pretty decent size especially the egg white pore foam and the toner so yay! I'm a sucker for those type of things. I've always wanted to try the black sugar mask wash off so I think this is a good way to try it, especially it's a full size also. Not too crazy about the eyebrow powder, but whatever..I'll try it out and see. Off the bat, the color does seem to be a bit too light for me, but who knows. Face cream, again, go into the "try-out-lotion/cream" pile. The box itself is a bit bigger than the usual. Overall, the two box is pretty good. Full sizes products for both. Face Shop has cute looking items while Skinfood is more "normal" looking.. I don't know about other meme-ers, but I definitely need to buy another makeup table to hand all these products from them I get. and I still have more boxes to come..boy oh boy. Anyone know if Meme is doing their boxes different sizes now based on the box theme or so? Face shop is smaller, while Skinfood is bigger (than usual) If anyone wants to see a closeup of any of the products, let me know I will post them up. Anyone else got these (or 1) boxes?

    Starlooks August 2014

    Got my August box 2 days ago. I received the black eyelinear (liquid) & the blush compact that has the highlighter and bronzer i believe? Tried the eyelinear and I LOVEEEEE IT. It is amazing. And I meant that by it does not makes my eye looking raccoon like at all. My eye lids are really really oily and even though I use eye primer along with powder before & after, all eyelinears (high & low ends) never last long as always end up making me look like i havent slept in a month or so... Well, Starlooks eyelinear (the one they sent) is amazing! i been have it on for 12+ hours and it has yet to budge at all. My eyes look as good as this morning when I put it on. LOVE LOVE LOVE. A for the blush/highlighter/bronzer compact, I have yet to tried it out, but will definitely use it tomorrow. But I did swatch it, and it looks pretty nice..pigmentation is good

    Covering Redness

    thank you for your very informative info. I will definitely check out a few of those brands you list.

    Covering Redness

    But my foundation still doesn't cover up redness for a long enough time...without primer, it last about an hour until the redness peak through. What foundations do you recommend? I have oily to combo skin, sensitive also.

    Covering Redness

    I tried the Smashbox green primer before and honestly, didn't like it at all. it made me look so ashy. I heard good thing about the MUF HD Green Primer, so I'll probably try it out before buying it.

    Covering Redness

    Covering Redness

    Is it suitable for Oily/Combo skin?

    Covering Redness

    I don't have rosacea..or at least I don't believe so. The only skin condition I have is eczema, but it's mostly on my arms and legs, but under control. When I don't use makeup, my face is fine - little/no redness. but when i wearing makeup, particularly foundations/powders/primers, the redness would show very well, which is odd to me. i been using the tarte loose powder and it has been working for a bit, but after a few hours (~3-4), the redness would show through..especially in hot, humid weather.

    Memebox: Product reviews

    So I tried the spray hair removal that came in box #12 yesterday. To me it is similar to Nair except that it doesn't smell as bad nor is as sticky. Basically I did two kind of application on my legs. On one of my legs I would spray a few pumps and spread it around my leg, as if you were applying lotion except you still leave a good enough thin layer to cover the hairs. On the other legs, I literally spray it on my legs to cover the entire legs so it definitely had a thicker layer as compare to the other leg. I left it on for 5 minutes and then use the wooden spatula and slide it down the legs with the products and hairs coming down to my feet. It removes my hair completely and was actually moisturizing even after I rinse off after removing. i didn't apply lotion afterwards (because im lazy) and even now, my legs does not look ashy at all...it feels soft and moisturized..and i have super dry skin (body wise) so this is a good sign. I haven't tried it on other body parts yet though.. maybe i'll try it on my lips hair. LOL. only down side is that if you were to literally to spray it on pumps after pumps after pumps (like i did on my 2nd leg), there wouldn't be much left. so i think imma just spray and spread since it works the same.
  13. How would you do the retouch on the sunscreen though? I mean, you face already has the foundation & powder, so do you just put the sunscreen on even with the foundation/powder already on? Or is there a trick to it?

    Makeup Tips & Tricks when purchasing!

    That eyeliner trick is a really good idea. shall use it next time. thanks. but like what everyone say, i would research/google the items(s) and read different reviews from different sites and if they have pictures to go with it, even better! i also watch on youtube for reviews from different people and their thoughts. i like youtube gurus that would show the start to finish of the products when they wearing it and have constant updates every few hours... sometimes, i would go to sephora (or ulta) and ask for a sample to try...if i like, i'll get it later, if i don't...oh well..didn't spent any cents on it so..
