Memebox Affiliates

Recommended Posts

Apparently they have lists.  I asked them.  They only have a certain number of people on the list.  I thought it was weird because blogs that don't even know about Memebox were getting Memeboxes to review.

 

I don't mind, though, I do this for fun not to get stuff.  I mean, getting stuff is fun and wonderful, but I'm gonna do it all anyway so it doesn't really matter.

I know - I noticed that too!!  And they never purchase another one after they get the freebie!! lol

 

I agree - I would review the boxes anyway, regardless.  I do that with my other subs too...

Yep. Same :D  Just got mine, too~

 

I had to answer the door in my oversized T-shirt/nightgown with my Hey, Honey Take It Off peel off mask (from Ipsy) on my face...   THAT was embarrassing...

I once answered the door to our apartment wearing a clay mask and it turned out to be a police detective asking about a shooting that had happened at the corner the night before. I had heard nothing (and our neighborhood is super safe), so I moved my face in shock and the mask cracked. LOL I took the opportunity when the detective asked my profession or title or whatever (I don't think he believed me at first) to mention that I don't usually look like that. Classic.

 

Hmm--I wish that the brushes were *NEW NEW NEW* sigh. I'm totally excited to be getting to review them, but I think that my readers' will be sort of like "yeah, the brushes that have been available since forever?" Well, $18 with free shipping is pretty exciting at least. The funny thing is that I never heard that the Memebox shipping times were terribly long from Korea, so I guess the US Memeshop exists for the purpose of free shipping within the US?

It takes me 20 days to get a nonexpedited package from Memebox in Korea to Washington State.  I think that's a long time.  :*(  But the fault lies mainly with the LAX facility.  My box will sit there for a week before they decide to send it up two states.  I thought it would be faster since I'm on the West Coast but nope.

 

Oh, I did my review.  They're pretty basic brushes.  Not awful but not OMG amazing, either.  I feel really bad that I have a brush so amazing that all other brushes pale in comparison.  If those darned it Cosmetics brushes weren't so expensive, I'd buy  more of them :D

 

They'll definitely get used and its a great assortment.  For $18 I think it's worth it.

Yeah, I sort of realized while writing my review that if people hadn't used a blogger promo code they could cost $13 with free shipping--that's a pretty awesome price for these, in my opinion.

Ok so I am so excited that I don't know where else to post this...I didn't want to post it in the other threads but thought I would give you guys the heads up since we are all bloggers!!

 

This has to do with the skinfactory 7 seconds morning sheet...

 

I contacted skinfactory to see if they had some samples of some of the other sheets they had available, because I am absolutely obsessed with the ones that came in the mask box. I seriously use them every morning! I did let them know I had a blog, and gave them my Media Kit with my blog stats and what not. I told them I'd be happy to review the morning sheets if they were interested. They said they were "happy to send me some samples to review."

 

Some samples.

 

This is what I got in the mail today.

I have been blogging for years, and I just stood there with my mouth open in shock, lol. I seriously cannot believe how much they sent me. I will probably be reviewing this stuff sporadically for the next year! They also included lots of paperwork with more information on the products, which is awesome!

 

Just saying, if you're interested in maybe reaching out to them about doing a review, it might be worth it! I found their e-mail address at the bottom of skinfactory website.

I think I've got like 5-6 sheets left in my original jar so I was elated to see this package today. Seriously I can't believe how generous they were! I don't usually go out of my way to e-mail companies about reviews because I'm so busy, but I was really into the morning sheets so I felt like it would definitely be worth a shot to message them!

Wow, awesome!! It looks like they sent you some really nice stuff!

I was excited to see a lip tattoo product like the one in the OMG box, just in case I get the orange shade. I haven't been buying Memeboxes lately due to a huge lack of funds (my car repairs have drained every last cent from my savings account) so this will tide me over review-wise for a while!

Thank you so much!  That is a great tutorial :D  I know nothing about this and I've never asked for anything to review before.  Now I need to get a real logo...  I've been loving blogging so much and I'd like to be a little more professional about it.

I am so small time that doing a media kit for me would be too much work! 

You're never too small time to do a media kit! I had one (granted it was absolutely terrible) when I first started, and my blog is still pretty small. Mine doesn't look anywhere near as fancy as the one in the tutorial, but it does show my blog stats, demographic, information and background etc etc. It's always good to have one on hand in case you're reaching out to a company to do a review :)

how do you know the demographics of your readers?  Or do you say that you are reaching out to women interested in beauty products, of all ages?

I basically just do that, yea. I mention the demographic of people that my blog is usually geared towards: Women ages 16 and up, mostly from the US. I host on blogger so I don't know about every hosting site, but i am able to gather up info on region/locations etc as well as a few other things, but just fluff it up the best you can like a resume LOL ;)

I will have to try my hand on that!   I just started mine because I wanted to keep track of what I got in my sub boxes - lol

I am a computer programmer analyst by day and a beauty junkie at night.  My hobby is well known at work - haha

 

When the OMG box was released, I was talking about it and all of the other programmers would google to find the weird stuff - like bull semen products, bird poo, etc...

 

they are going to be disappointed when I tell them what is in the OMG box!!  haha

it sounds to me that everyone who purchases the Jackpot box will be guaranteed a box worth at least 60.00

 

there will be 10 people selected which will more value in their boxes, where the 1st place "winner" will get $1000.00 box and so on.

Ohhhh, so it's a box! 

 

>.<

 

And it's going on sale friday?

 

Hm...  I'm not sure what I think of that deal since most memeboxes are cheaper and have a better value than $60 to begin with...

yeah, I know.  I mean, if the box was 15.00 or something...

 

I do think this box is really curated for new customers, as memebox wants us to post this on our social media outlets and encourage our readers to sign up for the newsletter - which makes me think that is what the target audience is.

I did notice they started giving 2 points to sign up again.  $32 is a lot for a first timer to spend on a box, though.

 

I just wrote an email asking for more details, we'll see if they respond.

 

I wanted to know how on earth they picked the "winners".

 

And when it ships.

 

I'll let you know what I find out (if I ever do).

hmm...this could either be really cool, or really awful. 

 

I really have difficulty recommending these kinds of things to my readers before I even really know what it's all about. I always feel really bad on the rare occasion that something I've recommended is bad or not worth it since I didn't have all the information. You'd think they'd maybe do a little spoiler of what you could get in a box so that we know whether or not it's worth it to share with our readers.

    • When you have something that need to step foot out into the street, must you need to review myself to have decent and neat yet. Or maybe you need to makeup the back face, cool his hair a little. In addition to a face skin smooth screen, then hair neatly with the style chignon simple will help you look more outstanding. In these days of cold weather, your hair can be dull, rough or matted due to shampooing, so the bun hairstyle simple will help keep looks cute and more refreshed. If you are a person who love makeup, love beauty, then you should not skip this article! Here are 5 types of beautiful and simple hair that make you look great The Hairstyle On The Top This style of top bun is suitable for girls traveling by car or bus, not wearing a helmet, ensuring you are always neat, but also a little more height for you. This top bun style is a bit different, unlike the regular bun, which is the type of hair that knots, looking very different and youthful. This type of bun is also suitable for girls who have not yet washed their hair, can take advantage of the small strands of hair to make it more luxurious, hiding the scalp that begins to be greasy and itchy. Making: First, tie all your hair into a ponytail above the top of the head. You don't have to tie it too tight, you can loosen up to look natural, and you can release a few loose strands of hair around your forehead. Divide the hair into two equal parts, wrap the first strand around the rest of the hair and use a fixed clip to fix it. Take the rest of your hair, do the same thing, but wrap it in the opposite direction, and then use a peg to fix it. So the hairstyle on the top of your head is completed, it looks very dynamic right? Feminine Hairstyle This is the perfect way to put on a bun to wear a helmet, also neat enough for you to wear the turtleneck sweater and scarf without itching. It can be considered as a basic type of bun, decorated with a braided pigtail to add to the momentum, making your school and work days less boring. This is also a very romantic hairstyle, suitable for you to handle messy hair in dating. Making: Separate a small lock of hair in front of your face so that it will be braided later. The rest grabbed into a ponytail. From this ponytail, twist it into a simple twist and pin it with a toothpick. Use the hair in front of the face to form a strand of ponytail, tied temporarily with small rubber bands. Then, use your fingers to drag the braids to make the pigtail look loose and wider. Wrap it in the bun behind your head, then pin it with a toothpick and you're done. If you have a lot of loose hair, apply a little hairspray. Multi-layered Hair Drawn If you do not know how to create a chignon, you can still apply an extremely simple technique to create a special bun style, ready for parties. How to create multi-layered knots: First, comb your hair very smoothly, then take a part of the hair above the top of the head, divide it into two sections and tie the knot together. Combine some hair underneath each strand, then continue tying the knot together. Keep going until you have all your hair on the knots. Secure the tail with elastic. Afterwards, insert the ends into the hair and pin it with a toothpick to finish. If your hair is longer than the model in the photo, you can continue to tie the long strand of hair down the back of your neck like a ponytail, then twist it into a bun and pin it with a small clip. If desired, fingers can be inserted into the knots to create a thick and fluffy bun. For people with very smooth hair, spray extra hairspray or dry wax to prevent knots from falling out. Curly Hair Chignon This is a very elegant, elegant bun hairstyle, similar to the hairstyles of many famous stars attending the event, but it's actually very easy to do, you don't need sophisticated styling tools, but Just hair ties and toothpicks will suffice. Making: Take a lock of hair above the ears, twist it, and twist it to get more hair into the lock. Do the same thing on the other side of the lock, then tie the entire hair into a low ponytail behind the nape of the neck. Insert your fingers into the middle of the hair above the elastic to create a gap, then thread the entire end of the hair into this space, taking care not to let the ends pass through to reveal under the bun. If your hair is too long, you can place a portion of it on top, then clip it around with a toothpick. So your bun is done. Thanks to the double curls on the ear, your hair will look thicker, more fluffy and more sophisticated. You can drop a few strands of hair hanging down in front for a more feminine. Style Chignon This is a hairstyle suitable for the evening outings, creating a youthful look, a bit rebellious and suitable for dusty costumes. Making: If you do not have time, you can skip steps 1 to 4: These are the steps to tangle the hair on the top of the head to create a feeling of thicker hair, thereby making your face appear smaller. You can directly do it from the 5th step, which is to tie all the hair into a low ponytail, and then divide the hair into 2 parts. For the upper part, let's disassemble, then fold the lower part to cover this messy hair, forming a bulging bun. Use a rubber band to fasten, then divide the extra hair ends of the 2nd part into 2 smaller strands, use these 2 smaller strands to wrap around the elastic band and then pin with a toothpick to complete. If you want more momentum, you can use a curling iron a few curls around the face. hope you can choose for yourself a beautiful bun among the above. ------------------------------ Website: https://beautizon.co/
    • Try BB cream or CC Cream, avoid using foundations,I prefer using bb cream and cc cream as it suit my skin type
    • It is definitely the MICA! I cannot use any mineral products or anything containing Mica which sucks because all the good blushes and colors have Mica but as soon as I use it I break out.  I have no breakouts at all now that I am MICA free.  
    • I got your point. This is the same with me. They arent curls in a proper a way but due to lack of moisture they have become rough and frizzy  at the end and tend to curl. But you dont need to panic Start coconut oil again following with a masaage for 5 minutes Apply yogurt or dahi at the tips in order to retain up the smoothness and moisture at the end Dont forget to condition your hair when ever you shampoo
