The last few weeks they have been releasing boxes only on Fridays, right? I do hope that there is a cyber monday box but I don't think there will be one...

Did anyone get the Koreas Most Wanted 2 box?

 

I feel like I heard nothing about it (but that could be my memory failing me as it came out awhile ago).

 

Speaking of dewy, I did actually find a dewy BB cream that I like.  It's the elroel tone up sungel and its green tinted for people with issues with redness. That's me!  It really helped hide the redness and that makes the slight "dew" worth it.  Plus a little bareminerals mineral veil helped.

 

I think that's the first product I've seen like that.  It's not even marketed as a BB cream.  It's a sungel?  Yay, for SPF50 but I wonder why they don't call it a BB cream.

 

Did anyone try this product?  I'm really curious about what other people think of it.

they used to call it sungel, but now it is called/renamed Elroel’s Tone Up Starter  and they are marketing it as such, not a sungel.   It is a color correcting product with UV protection and I do like it a lot.  I use a powder to tone down any dewiness.  We just happened to get the product before the packaging was renamed.

I haven't, but I just popped it on my list!  I've got 3 sunscreens to use up before I'll need another, so I'll see you back here in 6 months for my verdict :)

I've got some Palmers Cocoa Butter on my desk I'm trying to get through at work so I bring that in to add to my little Korean work survival kit (the Hiaromax vitamin stick and the Prori lavender mist being the main 2 things to stop me from going insane drying out like a parchment under the air con

@@subbes I know that feeling!  I could swim in all of mine!

 

Also, I third the Vitamin Stick.  Love that sooo much!

 

Also, I dont think any of the boxes that were supposed to ship on the 28th have actually done so...  Anyone else come to the same conclusion?

@@Saffyra Funny I got KMW2 and totally forgot what was in it!

I will try out the Elroel as I can use something that subdues redness.

So thank you for the heads up!

 

Fyi, that box looks much better to me now, then when it first arrived.

I think it time for me to go shopping in my "meme" closet.

A question about shipping- I am new to Memebox, and I am curious which ports the boxes get shipped into in the US. I've seen LA and NY. Are there any others? I live near Chicago and was wondering where my boxes will be shipped through. Thanks!

@@Saffyra I tried out the sun starter but I found it really hard to spread and blend in. I felt like I really had to rub it in. It's really dense! Did you have that problem too?

@engawa  do you have the mizon snail cream gel (it was in one of our globals - I think it was 16).   If you don't, you can pick it up on  amazon for under 10.00.

 

Mix a little of that with the sun starter and that will get you a nice creamy finish.

It depends on where you live and also on the type of shipping. My standard shipping Memeboxes come through LA (although some people's go through NY), but I've had a package come expedited shipping and it went through Chicago.

I had that and used it by itself and it broke me out :"( My skin is super sensitive and acne-prone. But I guess I can try to combine it with another moisturizer!

I've said it before and ill say it again that pure smile snail hand cream is amazing!

 

This makes me happy since I ordered two. I totally bought them based on my love (okay, okay obsession) with the lip treatment.

Tbh I wouldn't expect much more from a make up box, none of these appealed to me in the first place and that is why I didn't order any, but my humble opinion on the spoilers is:

 

F/w what I would expect from a makeup box

 

Elixir: not what I would expect from an elixir box, only 5 items and if it was only going to be 5 all 5 should be good essences and serums which is what I think of as ELIXIRS

 

Green: looks like a pretty good box, I would be happy with this if I wanted a green box, the milk might be out of place but it looks like a pretty good item to recieve

 

Empties is the best of the bunch in my opinion, I would be happy to recieve that box

I know, I'm complaining also. :( I just expected, or WISHED, for so much more from GreenFood thinking it was Superfoods #2...a box I missed and always hoped to grab a restock.

 

F/W for me was just to get Expedited Shipping. Not being much of a makeup girl I pretty much knew it would be a bust regardless but I'm sure others will enjoy it.

 

Now Blackout and Apple Mojito....AMAZE us Memebox! :D

    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal. https://folexin.info/ https://skincellpro11.weebly.com/
