Whoa I can barely catch up here. Read back a few pages but tldr the rest.. :P

Had stuff to settle so could quickly respond on FB and IG only most of the time.

 

I'm okay with the spoiler item for Beauty Forward (although it isn't that forward at all?!). Theme-wise, Memebox fails once again hah. Wish the rest of it is good.

 

And congrats on the case being settled (finally!) and did you buy the pink one, @@Jane George? Naughty naughty...

 

I agree with @@Alidolly because duh its Memebox we are talking about. It can range between dud and wow between two similarly themed box. I bought one of the Vday box and hopefully got the better one. :o 

 

Has anyone been buying alot lately? I kinda went downslope with shopping since I had to spend my moneys on rl stuff.

I bought the wine and cheese value set x 2, soothingsista and starter set four recently... Been very naughty but all have products I needed.

@@veritazy - sort of went on a mad spending spree so got quite a few coming (2 bundles - Valentines day 3 and the detox, anti-ageing & scent one). Also ordered the secret key red set, gentleman set (so hubby can't complain too much lol!) and got pinkaholic and coffee break with Dani coming too. Oh, and the starter mini one.

 

Em...and ordered the Rilakkuma box from Qbox but worried now I'm going to get stung for customs as it ships from Canada and not the Far East (I always seem to get hit with customs when its from Canada unless they value it under $15 but that box is $39 so probably no chance!). That's sort of part of my birthday..though hubby doesn't know it yet lol!!

I just got the VIP email with a 30% off I'm Brush coupon code. I ordered one eyeshadow brush and it's NICE. I compared it to brushes by Real Techniques and Coastal Scents and it's really on another level. I like it because it's made of animal bristles and they're super soft and densely packed--the brush part is fairly small and compact, but the handle is long (and it's a nice matte finish). I'm very much not a brush expert (I'm buying lots of different brushes right now to do a mega "best values in brushes" review), but I reach for that brush a lot. I'm tempted by the powder brush a lot (a lot a lot).

 

Anyone with more experience in brushes try the Meme brushes? Am I off or? I also want the REALLY PRETTY Zoeva Rose Golden sets (maybe the ones they release in February?) so I'm trying to not get too crazy, but...the Meme brush I have actually seems pretty great. Hmm.

Seems pretty safe to say that of the latest batch of mystery boxes, none has more than 5 items.  Guess the days of 7-8 things for $23-$29 are gone.  It was fun while it lasted.

i can't believe how many boxes are still in stock ,also the amount in stock numbers ,its unheard of, 

people have for sure moved on ,or sitting on their hands to not spend money for sure. 

maybe the cpm2 box can be flogged off with her new book she is writing, send them all to her to store in her flat,and once the book sells she can do a freebie gift signing in brighton waterstones for all her fans,

Personally I think if you use a ghost writer it needs to be made clear on the cover... But maybe that's just me.

Sorry off my soap box and hoping my block will lift lol...

I just find it funny people don't realise how many hours go into it and for most writers you make little but need to do it as an urge.

Sorry off topic... Gonna go do a book on a woman obsessed with korean beauty lol

I wonder how many items are going to be in the $25 boxes? I hope someone posts the spoliers for the scent box soon. The signature scent box would give us an idea of what to expect from the valentines day boxes.

I would say 5 .qaulity over quantity is the ethos of the year for memebox . But if a lip balm or a single $2 mask is thrown into boxes I won't be pleased for over $35 to be honest

I agree, if they are going with 5 items, they should at least be full sized skin care items, such as toner, cream, serums etc. For that reason, I like value sets a lot more than meme boxes right now.

    • Thank you Edith
    • You are a very thoughtful husband. I'm not an expert on makeup. But I love shopping. I was impressed with Sisley brushes, which are made by Raphael. Raphael has been a master maker of brushes for artists since 1793. The big department stores will give you an extra gift with purchase now too. For example, if you buy from Neiman Marcus, you can get a nice bag filled with beauty samples for free. That's what I would do.  I also love Trinny London. The T Kit is very unique, compact and great for travel or purse. Estee Lauder has a beautiful limited edition set called Brushed by Fame. The lovely white marble design might look pretty with your bathroom decor.  Good luck with your purchase!
