It’s time again for some fun with Korean Beauty Products. The folks from Memebox always send me fun things to review and this month I’ve actually got a favorite product of mine.
Panda’s Dream Brightening Eye Base by Tonymoly
(Memebox Retail: $12.00)
Memebox Description: “Instantly see improvement in the appearance of dark circles with ingredients that soothe and specifically target the under eye region, to visibly improve puffiness, eye bags , and dark circles. Properties also include revitalizing eye wrinkle treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Create energized and brightened under eyes with this easy-to-use, on-the-go skin treatment. You can also use this product as a highlighter to add definition and create a dynamic, multi-dimensional look.”
DIRECTIONS: “Apply directly to the under yes where dark circles or puffiness are most prominent. Use as a highlighter and apply to nose bride, forehead, chin, cheek bones for definition. Blend into skin for a natural and flawless finish. Re-apply throughout the day as needed.”
I actually own this product and talked about it during my NYC Feature where I visited the TonyMoly store. I use this regularly under my eyes. It’s definitely brightening, but if you plan to cover your dark circles you should use it in conjunction with a concealer. If you’ve tried Benefit’s Fakeup, it’s very similar to the hydrating core around the color. The product goes on smoothly and is nicely hydrating. I use it regularly beneath my stronger concealers so that the delicate skin of the under eye area doesn’t get irritated or dry. I’d never thought to try this out as a highlighter, but thanks to Memebox’s handy dandy little card I’ll be making this even more of a multi-tasker. And it goes without saying that anything TonyMoly is super adorable. I mean who doesn’t want an eye brightening panda in their makeup case? This is a great buy for $12 and I can’t recommend it enough.
Meme Puff Set 5 pcs by XO Memebox
(Memebox Retail: $5.00)
Memebox Description: “Your search for the perfect air cushion pact ends here. Simply take your favorite facial makeup and pat, pat, pat with Meme Puffs! These Rubycell antibacterial puffs are the same puffs encased in air cushion pacts that deliver the flawless, airbrushed finish. With its skin-fitting technology, it lets your makeup directly touch your skin and fill even the finest lines. Plus, there’s no need to worry about having to wash it over and over again as it is antibacterial and won’t accumulate dirt.
If you already own an air cushion pact, it’s a great idea to occasionally swap out the applicator.”
DIRECTIONS: “Pair with face makeup of your choice – foundation, BB cream, CC cream. Or pair with your old air cushion pact. Gently press the cushion puff against the cushion foundation until an appropriate amount of product is released. Pat gently onto the face to create an airbrushed, moist finish.”
I really like that these sponges are antibacterial. It’s also great to have a nice alternative to using that same old sponge in your compact. The sponge seemed quite sturdy and the application was good. The five pack at $5 seems a pretty reasonable price since a sponge should last quite some time. If you’ve got a cushion compact with a sponge that has seen better days consider grabbing a pack of these.
