December Product Reviews: Memebox –I’m Dual Pore Brush,Snowflake Cleansing Balm & Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask

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 got a bunch of products I was super excited to try out.
Memebox December Products

Clay Mask
Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask by Elizavecca

(Memebox Retail: $12.00)
Memebox Description: “This bubble clay mask is both a deep-cleansing makeup remover and pore cleanser in one! With its special formulation of charcoal powder, it deeply penetrates the pores to thoroughly get rid of deep-seated dirt while supplying proper nutrients to keep the skin healthy and supple. It not only cleanses, refines and tightens pores but it also helps control excessive sebum which usually causes the pores to be clogged.”
How to use:
“Scoop a proper amount of the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask and spread evenly on dry, uncleansed face. Wait for 5 minutes until bubbles start to appear then gently massage it all over the face to melt down dirt. Rinse off with lukewarm water.”

Verdict: Hit!
I gave this mask a try and it actually starts bubbling pretty quickly. After waiting the prerequisite five minutes, the product looked pretty horrifying, like you had grey fluffy cauliflower growing on your face, so I recommend locking the bathroom door unless you want to traumatize your Significant Other (or any small children in the vicinity). I rubbed in the product, then rinsed it clean as instructed. It washed away much easier than other clay masks I’ve used. My skin afterwards definitely felt much cleaner and quite a bit smoother. I was concerned the product would be drying but it absolutely wasn’t. I think this is a superb mask for only $12 and could be a lot of fun for at home spa night with or without your closest friends (just don’t let one get a picture of you pre-rinsing).

Brush with instructionsWhite SidePink Side
I’m Dual Pore Brush by XO Memebox

(Memebox Retail: $12.00)
Memebox Description: “Bring your cleansing routine to the next level with I’m Dual Pore Brush. The first step to perfect skin is a good, thorough cleanse. Our ultra-soft microfiber and silicone brushes detox, rejuvenate, and retexturize. The white microfiber brush is made with 550,000 microfiber bristles that deeply clean pores without irritating the skin. It draws impurities and blackheads out of the pores for incredibly soft and even skin texture. The pink silicone brush is made with gentle silicone bristles that help remove stubborn blackheads and whiteheads. When gently pressed against the skin, it helps reduce puffiness in addition to restoring circulation and resilience.”

DIRECTIONS:
To Use the “Ultra-Soft Microfiber Brush”: “Wet the microfiber brush head with warm water and add a small amount of facial cleanser.  Gently massage your face in a circular motion.”
To use the “Ultra-Gentle Silicone Brush Side”: “Press against the skin to restore circulation. Gently massage your T-zone in a circular motion with foam to remove blackheads.”

Verdict: LOVE!
Sadly this is currently sold out, but I’m sure Memebox will bring it back. The white side is super soft and the pink side gives a nice exfoliation. I actually own a Clarisonic Mia and even with the sensitive brushheads, I can’t use the product every day. This is much gentler and I like that it has two different types of bristles. The handle has a nice weight to it and this product definitely feels more expensive than the $12 price tag. If you’re looking for a versatile, affordable facebrush, definitely give this one a try once it’s back in stock.

Snowflake Cleanser
Nooni Snowflake Cleanser

(Memebox Retail: $13.00)
Memebox Description: “Good cleansing helps maintain an even canvas for seamless application of skincare and makeup products. We designed the ultimate oil cleansing balm to give you a gentle cleanse every day. Cleansing Balm, Oil & Milk – all in one: Unique sherbet changes its texture as you cleanse so you can enjoy the benefits of a cleansing balm, cleansing oil, and cleansing milk all at once. Revitalize with Jeju Water: Water is a key component in most skincare products. This cleanser is made with mineral-rich Jeju spring water that promotes vitality and elasticity of skin while you cleanse. Nourish & Moisturize: Shea Butter, Citrus Peel Extract, and Lotus Flower Extract keep the skin feeling moisturized and supple.”
DIRECTIONS:
A not so detailed graphic from Memebox (but cute nonetheless):
nooni-snowflake-cleanser-howto-content
“Step 1: Cleansing balm – It starts off with a balm texture that melts into your skin like snowflake. Cleansing balm allows for a mess-free, easy application.
Step 2: Cleansing oil – The balm turns into an oil as you massage into your skin. Cleansing oil is the most powerful form of cleansing that dissolves makeup, sunblock and oil-based impurities such as sebum.
Step 3: Cleansing milk – Massage once more with wet hands to emulsify the oil. Cleansing milk gently lifts away the oil and water-based impurities such as sweat and dirt.
Rinse off with lukewarm water. Your skin will be left feeling soft and moisturized (and not oily!). Follow up with your regular moisturizer routine.

Verdict: Like
I was interested to see how this would compare with my regular oil cleanser and sadly it’s not a replacement for that. Oil cleanser can remove heavy makeup as well, while this requires you to remove your heavy/waterproof makeup first (which Memebox mentions on the site). That being said the cleanser itself is lovely. It has a balm like texture that works well with the included facebrush or with a Clarisonic. It melts away and gives you that squeaky clean feel without drying your skin. The size I received was a deluxe sample so for $13 you’d get a much larger size. I think it’s a great price for the product and if you’re someone who wants the benefits of an oil cleanser, but doesn’t like the feel of oil on your skin, consider giving this cleanser a try.

October Product Reviews: Memebox – TONYMOLY Panda’s Dream Brightening Eye Base & Memebox Puffs

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.

Bear 2 Bear - Close
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.”

Verdict: LOVE!

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.

Makeup SpongeReverse Side
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.”

Verdict: Like
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.

September Product Review: Memebox – Ciracle Blackhead Off Sheet

It’s time again for some fun with Korean Beauty Products. The folks from Memeboxalways send me exciting products to review and this time I have Ciracle’s Pore Control Blackhead Off Sheet.
Good-bye Blackhead Ciracle
Ciracle Pore Control Blackhead Off Sheet

(Memebox Retail: $15.00)
Memebox’s Description: “Keep your skin clear and get rid of all those stubborn blackheads! This unique blackhead eliminator is in a sheet form which effectively allows the essence to fully sit into the pores to be able to soften the dirt out and eliminate it completely. It also controls excessive sebum production to prevent further appearance of whiteheads and blackheads.”

There is nothing that K-beauty hates more than blackheads and “excessive sebum”, hence the constant stream of products to tackle those very issues.

This kit comes with a jar of circular sheets soaked in some type of blackhead removing solution, tweezers and q-tips.
Open Jar
The directions say to apply the pads to a clean face and press until they adhere. You leave them for 20 to 30 minutes, then rub the q-tips around the area to remove blackheads. After, you rinse off with lukewarm water.

I found the circles hard to apply to certain areas of my face. You are supposed to be able to use these on your cheeks and chin as well, but I couldn’t get mine to stay on my chin. The feel of the solution reminds me a lot of a typical Korean facemask. It’s the same kind of feel against your skin and the same consistency in the liquid.

I have sensitive skin and I was fine for most of the time the pads were on. Toward the end of the time limit, my skin near my eyes was feeling a little dry. I didn’t have a reaction, but I did follow up with oil cleanser and moisturizer.

Product
Verdict:
Like

After I was done, my pores did seem notably cleaner. I’m not convinced that this removes blackheads, but it does do a good job of cleaning out your pores. I like that it’s not as rough on your skin as those adhesive style strips and the small circles allow you to place the mask exactly where you want it. They are a little difficult to work with for some areas of the face, but you could work around them by applying and then laying on the couch.

I couldn’t find this product for individual purchase on the Memebox site, but it is part of the Ciracle Box, which looks pretty awesome. It’s got a deep cleansing oil, a snail mask, and tons of other goodies. If I didn’t have a giant skincare stockpile, I’d be nabbing it for myself.

Are blackheads a problem for you? If so, what is your beauty solution for dealing with them?

August Product Reviews: Memebox Yeondukong Fix Lip & Cosrx Blackhead Silk Fingerballs

The great folks at Memebox always sent me fun and funky products to review. For August, I received the uber mysterious Cosrx Blackhead Silk Fingerballs and the cheerful Yeondukong Fix Lip.

We’ll start with the lip product.
LipstickLipstick Swatch
Yeondukong x Memebox: Fix Lip #01 Red Orange
(Retail: $12.00)
Keeping up with Memebox’s recent theme of having special celebrity curations, “Yeondukong is a 25-year-old, ultimate “gwiyomi” beauty guru from Korea. She shares beauty tips that are quick and easy, perfect for students and workers who want to look great on the go.”

“What it is: This super pigmented 3-in-1 is pigmented like a lipstick, moisturizing like a tint balm, and evens out dry, patchy lips like a primer. It gives a great color payoff that makes the lips naturally plump and pretty. Formulated with mango, grapeseed, apple oil, and honey extracts to nourish and moisturize the lips. Its long-lasting formula allows the color to stay intact for up to 12 hours.”

This is Memebox’s photo that shows the color after 12 hours of wear:
Lipstick Before & After
Verdict: Hit!
As you can tell by my swatch this is hardcore orange on me–like prison jumpsuit, see me coming from across the street, orange. But the formula on this product was fabulous. The lipstick went on smoothly and had a gorgeous color saturation. It was hydrating, although after wearing it for a few hours my lips did feel a bit dry, so it’s not one stop shopping for  lip hydration. The lipstick was long-lasting but mine didn’t get that 12 hours of wear as shown in the Memebox photo. After a bunch of hours and a pizza dinner, it had mostly faded but there was still a bit of an orange tint. Even though this color is out of my comfort zone, it was so bright and saturated that after a while I started to like it. If Memebox introduces a cooler red shade, I’m going to be all over it. This is a great lipstick and I think it’s worth the $12.00 pricetag. If you like orange reds, definitely consider giving this a shot.

Silk
Blackhead Silk Finger Ball 12 pcs

(Retail: $4.58)
I’m going to be honest here, when I first got these I couldn’t figure out if they were packing materials or an actual beauty product. Thankfully, Memebox sent out an email to  bloggers with more info and directions.

“What it is: A finger ball made of 100% natural silk. Used to massage and gently exfoliate the skin to reveal healthy, youthful skin.”
Directions:
Directions
Verdict: Does anyone ever think that Korean beauty manufacturers are just punking us sometimes?

So these are like blackhead finger scrubbing balls? Why not just make silk pads similar to a konjac sponge? I don’t quite get it. I dutifully followed the instructions, but I didn’t see much change in my blackhead situation. It did remove a little leftover makeup, so it does function as a basic face sponge/exfoliator but I’m not seeing this as having any real impact on removing blackheads. If you want to scrub your face using just your fingertips, then this is just the product for you, but if you’re like me and are fine usually a regular face sponge, you can pass on this one.

Memebox ProductsAs usual, I had a lot of fun trying out these Korean beauty trends, even if they all weren’t wins for me.  Korean products are a great way to mix up your beauty routine and have some fun with your makeup and skincare.

What do you think of the Korean beauty trend in the US? Are the products exciting or just a bit too weird for you?

July Product Review: Memebox HDReady Marsala Cream Matte Lipsticks & Coupon Code!

For July, Memebox sent me some fun makeup to review. The MAKEUPBYEVON + Memebox line introduced a trio of Cream Matte Lipsticks in different shades of Marsala. (Use ‘MEME10′ to receive 10% off your order!)
Lipsticks
My first thought: Who is Evon?
A little recon on the Memebox site gave me the answer:

“NY-based self-taught MUA Evon inspires everyone to discover beauty through makeup and self-transformation.”

I knew I wanted to go into makeup when learned that my makeup can make other people feel beautiful. As a makeup artist, it’s always been a dream to design my own beauty products. I decided to work with Memebox because I knew that K-beauty is all about the latest technology and high quality formula. My HD Ready Collection with Memebox is for people who want that sophisticated, professional look with minimal effort…”

Memebox’s Description of the Lipsticks:
“Evon chose the perfect matte lipstick formula in three different shades from the Marsala family, Pantone color of the year. This cream-to-powder formula glides on beautifully and sets to a velvety semi-matte finish that’s not drying or uncomfortable on the lips. Can be used on the lips and on the cheeks. Paraben free..”

 If you’re into beauty and fashion, then you know “Marsala” has been everywhere this year and it’s a shade that can be an awesome chic neutral or a horrible brown mess. I was interested to see which category this set fell into.

01 Shy Marsala
#HDReady Cream Matte Lipstick #01 Shy Marsala

(Memebox Retail: $10.00)
Description: “Classic pinky nude beige, the lightest shade on the marsala color spectrum”
Verdict: Hit!

#02 True Marsala
#HDReady Cream Matte Lipstick #02 True Marsala

(Memebox Retail: $10.00)
Description: #02 True Marsala: warm soft brown with a hint of marsala red undertone
Verdict:
Hit!

#03 Daring Marsala
#HDReady Cream Matte Lipstick #03 Daring Marsala

(Memebox Retail: $10.00)
Description: sensual, bold, and rich wine a.k.a. Pantone marsala
Verdict:
Love!

At the words “matte” and “cream”, I immediately worried that these lipsticks would be super drying and cakey. They absolutely were not. They went on smoothly and had excellent staying power. No matte lip product will ever be hydrating but these didn’t have that horrible-make-your-lips peel factor.
Swatches
“Shy Marsala” might be a little pale for our lovely darker skinned ladies, but I think it will work well on the paler to medium skin tones. It gives that natural sunkissed, JLo-esque vibe. The “True Marsala” is a touch more orange than the other two shades, but very wearable. My surprise favorite was the darkest shade “Daring Marsala”. I was sure it would look awful on my pale skin, but it absolutely did not. It has this sort of 90s retro brown lipstick vibe and reminded me of this awesome “Toasted Almond” Revlon lipstick I rocked back in high school. (I loved that damn lipstick).  These shades could have gone horribly wrong on me with my pale skin and pink undertones, but they didn’t. They are great neutrals for every day wear and I think they’ll look fabulous on most ladies.

If you buy these as a set of 3, you can save $10. I think they are well worth the price at $10 and a steal at all three for $20. I’d happily pay that price for the set.

Have you rocked an “Marsala” makeup this year?

April Product Review: Memebox NYLON #ItGirlPalette “Sweet 16” & Coupon Codes!

So April’s product review is a special palette from Memebox. Once known for their Korean beauty boxes, Memebox has now made a big push into creating their own makeup line. For lots (and lots!) of coupon codes (including $4.00 off this palette), jump down below. Now on to the main event!
Box

Memebox graciously sent me their “Sweet 16”, Nylon #ItGirlPalette, designed by Nylon and created by Memebox. This palette retails for $29.00 and Memebox describes it on the site as follows:
“#ItGirlPalette is NYLON’s special gift to its readers in celebration of their 16th anniversary. All colors were carefully picked by NYLON’s senior beauty editors with a strong emphasis on versatility and uniqueness. Each color packs a punch so you can amp up the night with just one shade, or blend your favorites to create a custom look! This palette is a must-have for all gals that are edgy, trend-setting, and f***ing awesome. Cruelty Free.”

I kind of appreciate the nod to profanity. Sometimes you don’t want to be a princess, sometimes you just want to be a bitch in heels.

For folks that don’t know, Nylon is a beauty, fashion and pop culture magazine.  The “Sweet 16” moniker is in tribute to Nylon’s 16th anniversary and the shades relate to the magazine and are inspired by their most iconic cover stars.
Palette & Box Brush

Memebox automatically gets points added for the plastic packaging. So many palettes come in cardboard and even if you’re careful they end up looking dingy in no time. The dual sided brush is also nice quality and can give a decent application, although I prefer to use my makeup brushes.

Palette Close
The Moment: A Champagne Pink that can be used as a killer face illuminator or brow highlight
Lilo: A Matte White
Mary Kate: A Sparkly Olive
Mischa: A Grungy Rust
Lana: An Antique Gold
Paris: An Expensive Hazel
Nicole: A multi-dimensional blue-hued brown
Sweet 16: (blush) Memebox & Nylon’s signature matte hot pink

Verdict: Love!

At first glance I was worried these colors would look terrible on, but they don’t. Typically makeup leans a bit too warm or yellow for my cool, pale, pink undertoned complexion but these didn’t. Shades like the gold, definitely leaned a touch warm, but nothing that I couldn’t pull off. These colors are pretty neutral so whether you’re warm or cool, yellow or pink, you should be able to rock them.

Swatch Moment & Sweet 16
“The Moment” is super sparkly so I’d reserve it for evenings. The “Sweet 16” blush has amazing color payoff, but I’m not sure that I can pull it off with my complexion. I’ll have to play around with it.
Swatches
These eyeshadows went on smoothly and had decent staying power (even on my super oily lids). The best thing about this palette is how unique the colors. They are both intriguing and edgy and can work in a variety of looks. You could use Nicole for an evening metallic smoky eye with Mischa has an unexpected pop of color or Lana with a gorgeous cat eye liner for some old Hollywood flair, or try Paris for a romantic daytime look. I have quite a bit of makeup and these colors aren’t like anything else in my makeup kit. I’m going to have a ton of fun experimenting with them.

This palette retails for $29.00 which I think is a fair price. A lot of similarly priced palettes come in cardboard and with colors that aren’t half as interesting. If you want something unique for your makeup kit, definitely give this palette a shot.
