ooo! I just noticed the DoYou Soy moisturizer is available now!  I mean... $40 is outrageous but if it went on sale, I really liked it for my combo skin.

 

AW! the Horizontal egg sold out while it was in my cart! At least I got all the other ones.  Except the yellow flower red one.

I love it as well - I use it as a night cream, before my sleep pack.   So, you got all of them except the 2 that were sold out?  You love your eggs!! 

 

We all have to post pics of our eggs when we get them, so we can see if the items are different :)

Yah, I think I've been feeling my Memedrought.  

 

I'm sure it will just be silly stuff but oh well.  I'm definitely curious to see if all the same eggs got the same thing.

Ok most of them were sold out by the time I grabbed them, but I picked up the 3 that weren't gone. Came to like $25 after shipping.

 

Probably a huge waste of money lol, but hey- it was kind of fun! ;)

Oh an also- they've got some pretty good deals running on the app right now if anyone hasn't had enough shopping! All those trio shadow palettes are like 50% off, some of the pony boxes and makeup is on sale etc.

I didn't even think to search, so I didn't see the golden egg or the red one. Got all the rest, though!

I'm really loving my Soothing Sista palette! I dont use the Bay Area one or whatever it's called because it really is a glitter bomb but the other three are just my colors.

That's a GREAT palette. I almost didn't order because it looked so blah neutral and I have all the Naked palettes, but it's my fave right now. I've used it for two weeks straight, I even use Bae Area in the inner corners, but yeah it's a glitter bomb for sure with so much fall out! My indie shadow collection has been giving me the side eye from their corner of the room!

omg agreed I use it all the time! And Saffyra- bae area is a MUST!!

 

It is a glitter bomb but the absolute best way to use it is on the inner half of your lower lid pulled up a bit to the inner corner. To get it to stay put, use a creamy eye pencil that is a light shade and the gently pat bae area onto it. it'll hold in place and look fantastic!

 

I used the Bad Girl palette today; Used the gold on the inner half of my lid and blended it into the burgundy on the outer half of the lid. Pulled the burgundy down on my lower lid and blended it out a bit and then used the dark brown in my crease and the cream shade to blend and highlight the brow bone. One of the teenagers that I work with literally said, 'Wow Rachel you're eye makeup is on point!!" LOL :)

I didn't see the eggs until 6:30 am EST but managed to snag 3 of them. Mystery boxes are my draw as well. Will be interesting to see if all same colored eggs have the

same surprise inside. Agree they should have done this earlier so the eggs would

have arrived for Easter. There seems to be a hit or miss with shipping. The

berrylicious box sat in limbo for several days.

I got my Nylon palette today. The colors are pretty but that hot pink is bright. Some of the pans are wonky and crooked. I like it though.

I got one today too- the pink is super bright but it can really be sheered out on the cheeks and it looks really pretty if used lightly. I'm honestly not super fond of the palette overall. Most of the shades are a lot more sheer than I normally like, and for some reason, even though I feel like I'm well-versed in shadow-color-combinations, I feel like the shade choices weren't well thought out- there isn't a whole lot you can combine together, at least for me. I usually like a good lid, crease, and highlight shade at least, but there are a few I feel like I could put together and others are kind of just...on their own.

@@MissJexie thanks for the tip on the blush. I will try it out. When I first saw the color I was scared, LOL

 

I'm not a big eyeshadow wearer so I usually only wear one light color on my whole lid. But I will try some of these near my lash line. But you are right, these colors don't go together well.

some of the colors are hard to work with, but I think that the bottom row (lana, paris & nicole) work well together, nicole & mischa seem to look good together, Lana & mischa might work together, nicole & mary-kate will be nice as well.  Lilo can be used as an eye base.

 

The blush, I have said previously, would be great in the summertime, with a tan, lightly applied.  This could go darker on those ladies with darker skin tones as well.

 

here are the swatches I did - only #4 & #8 are really pigmented, imho

I definitely agree that some of the neutral shades can work together, I can think up a a couple of eye looks that I'd actually want to do, however I just don't think that the palette is cohesive as a whole. The neutrals, then a green and a red and brown with a teal shift and a neon pink blush...and one matte white? I just honestly don't get the collection as a whole at all. I buy palettes not for individual shades, but for how well they work together. I like to take a palette on a trip with me and have a variety of different eye looks, and I feel like with this one, while some of the shades are pretty, I'd constantly be reaching into other palettes to finish off the look.

 

This palette might work nicely for someone who prefers lighter-less dramatic eye looks, but I go all out on my eyes LOL. There really is no crease shade in here at all, for me. this is a palette full of highlights and lid shades, not many transition shades or crease shades for me. 

 

Again, that's just me- I know that someone like my sister who goes for a more natural, lightly applied eye would really enjoy this. I think it's my least favorite of all the XO palettes I own, though, and i had high hope for it considering it was the first that didn't have a majority of neutrals.

I agree, @MissJexie.  I was just pointing out that some shades do work well together in case folks were having a hard time with it.  the photo swatches at memebox do not really represent what the shades really look like

Eek I know, right? Those swatches look NOTHING like what I came up with, and I had to swatch certain shades 7-8 times to get the color to really pop in a picture. Not what I was expecting when I first saw the palette :(

Considering the top model mystery box...There is nothing for my aging skin/body that would make it look or feel like a top model but I like any idea of a mystery box :D  The description says 7 full size products, 3 beauty and 4 skin care

I'm going to pass on the new box. 7 products with a $62 value is about $8.85 per item. Not sure what skincare would be in there with the low value, cleansers or sheet masks perhaps. Plus, I just have too much stuff. Now if that Blithe patting water was in there, then I would bite.

Longtime Memebox customer but new to the site. Pleased to meet you all ^^ I like the idea of the model box but I'm really not confident about the contents. Although everyone else seems happier with the latest boxes, I'm still kinda meh. I'm also confused by the description. What do they mean by "beauty items"? Aren't all skincare/cosmetics technically "beauty items"? lol

Welcome to Makeuptalk!  ^_^

 

I'm still kind of "meh" on the boxes as well. I was buying them up like crazy back before they stopped international shipping, now none of them seem worth it for me, personally.  I think some of the most recent boxes are pretty good for someone still building their kbeauty collection and figuring out what works for them, but for many of us who have massive hoards of korean skincare, they're just not as exciting and high value as they used to be. 

 

I am interested to see what the model box is going to contain though- even though I'm not buying boxes anymore I can't help but be curious about the mystery boxes! LOL Old habits die hard! ;)

 

I did succumb to the Easter Egg deal, though- mystery eggs are just way too tempting!

 

I wonder if all the same-colored eggs will have the same product, or will everyone get something different? I'm super excited for them to start shipping/arriving!
