Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

While there are still people on this thread, has anyone got suggestions on how to use up the point pads that were in several boxes? I've tried them in my heels and elbows but the serum seems too light to be beneficial. Any other ideas? Tia

I use them On my cheeks as they get dry but tbh most aren't great.

 

Lol for a minute I thought you meant the point packs from omg. I Blame tiredness but in fact it was just that I don't read things properly.

Oh man, life intervenes for a few months and it all kicks off...

 

Thank you to both moderators on here. I would never have known about the in-fighting if it hadn't been mentioned which is a credit to the work you have put in.

 

Memebox...oh Memebox. I feel like this is a case study to how not to run a business. I don't think there's a way to come back. By the time that they re-introduce shipping to the UK I bet there will be something in its place people would have moved on to. Nature abhors a vacuum and all that.

@@MissJexie I am so sorry that you had to go through all these... You were always understanding and polite getting the thread back to track! And thank you for creating this thread so months afterwards I would find it and get addicted to memebox! :) Are you still going to be around as a normal member?

From what I've heard it's kinda of an end of MUT, too. Almost all - if not all - mods and admins are leaving along with many members. For all of you who are interested: http://www.makeuptalk.com/f/topic/135734-stepping-down-as-community-manager/

Thanks for posting this - wow, sounds like things really got heated but to lose all the Mods is really bad. Was on a comping forum about 2 yrs ago and the same happened. It was hectic for a few months but eventually settled down again. However, that was the site owners changing the format of the website and not informing the mods rather than them being actively hostile towards them. Poison chalice for anyone stepping into the breach given what's happened. This weekend has been one shock after another. I wish the mods well as its a thankless job at the best of times but you do need the support of the site owners to do your role properly. Constant criticism would wear anyone down but to lose a whole team shows the issues run deeper. Such a shame...

It is disheartening that this has happened. Last night one of the ex mods linked that thread twice so we could read what was going on but both posts were deleted. I was on this thread and saw both her posts. I am not happy about posts getting deleted to hide things.

Last year,  TWOP ( Television Without Pity) a very funny and large posting community on all sorts of TV shows disbanded after MANY years of being a very witty, pithy and usually very entertaining place to post or just read. I read most of the time- I never felt that I had the background knowledge of some of the fans.. I was also very scared of certain moderators who had some really outrageous rules.. You had to follow their copy and paste rules. You couldn't post 2 posts in a row on one thread.. It got to be a hassle because it was like the police.

 

There are now other forums on quasi TV- specific sites for " TWOP Refugees" of a certain show or genre- soaps, the Duggar family show, some parody sites.. But it's not TWOP. I STILL miss TWOP's " Frasier" and " Doc Martin" forums. 

 

I hope that we, the posters of MuT, will still have a place to come and discuss, well, makeup right here. I hope the owners keep the site open and people find enough positive things to post about here. " Splinter" groups are rarely as successful as the original... 

 

I've seen hugely massive administration/ moderation disagreements on another site with many thousands of active members, and a huge paid sponsor base. I was a close friend of the site owner at that time, and for a while, she was really afraid that the forum wouldn't survive without the missing people, some who left voluntarily, others who didn't. We talked on the phone many times.. I was really worried about her.  I saw my friends, my fellow posters from all over the world leave en masse'. 

 That forum is dedicated to missing people and being supportive of crime victims, to simplify things a bit. It's still VERY active, and is the top site which shows up in a Google search about a specific case most of the time again. The downside is that the " new crop" of moderators moderate to an extreme extent, often removing 3/4 to a whole post  or pages of posts from various posters with lots of research in it... It's different, and I'm not involved much at all, but a lot of people who didn't know what the site used to be, do like it.

 

I guess what I'm trying to say is that there are ideals and so forth, but life is hardly ever " ideal". We take the ups and downs and we try to make a site stronger if we want to be there. :)
I hope MuT survives and thrives, even while being sad about those who are upset and left their positions.

I can't confirm this, but I believe the mods don't want MUT to die, I think they just want their sanity to live on.

I just want to say that @@MissJexie did the best job she could and it has been difficult with so many things going on during the past year... Thank you so much for being our mod here ;)

Refrigerate and use em like cold cucumber pads? It should be nice to soothe tired eyes. Otherwise patch them on kids at parties. They seem to enjoy it lol

This sure has been the week from hell. Just when you think things couldn't get any

worse, the hole gets deeper and wider. I came to the party late but this is so sad

nonetheless. To all those who gave their time, energy, spirit, love and advice,

thank you for your immense gift to us. Fighting!(as the Koreans so wisely say)

There is always a new path with new adventures; certainly there are lessons to be

learned along each road traveled. May you reach new heights this year both in

happiness and prosperity!

It's the end of an era but also a chance to start sth new. To look for new places to shop, to talk and to develop our interest.

This is my last post on MUT because I no longer see a point in staying here. I'm sure I'll meet many of you again in other places so it's not a real goodbye :) See ya and take care, it was fun while it lasted!

"Jack!  Jack!  I'll never let go!!"  <lets go, body sinks>

 

Wow, so sorry for all the mess that's happened, but am eternally grateful to MissJexie for all her hard work here and to formul8edphrase for getting me hooked on K-beauty.  When one forum dies, another springs up.

 

And, yes, what IS Memebox doing, are they trying to completely kill the business?

I think Memebox may have gotten over-extended in several ways when they opened up Memebox China. 
Hopefully, their plan in a couple of months will be to open Memebox US to Canada, and create a Memebox shipping/ warehouse location in Europe. 

 

We may not always get the exact same boxes, IDK, because Korea and China don't get the US.Memebox.com boxes now, but I have hope that, based upon their past " business model" ( ha), they will solve whatever problems they are having right now and open their business to the areas I've mentioned.

Oh ok the ex admin venting thread expanded with more details where our part of the forum was mentioned a few times and then that thread was removed.

I think most of the admins left though

    • Tinder's basically the best option out there other than social media which is usually iffy, and Lex is another good one, that's if you're gay at all.
    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
