Memebox Colorbox #2 Orange – review

I got this memebox and am so excited to try everything in it. Although I am not a huge makeup person, I think some color would be lovely especially when it is summer.

The Memebox Colorbox #2 Orange was priced at only $15 on Memebox (currently sold out) and it is part of the mini memebox series which features 3-4 items of a specific theme. I strongly recommend these boxes because they are of fantastic value and they sell out so quickly.

The Colorbox came in #1 Red, #2 Orange and #3 Blue, and I hope they will carry other colors in the future.

20140630_091529970_iOSIf you are a makeup enthusiast, you will love this. It is like a mini sampler of the Makeup box ($23).

First up is the Dearberry Flirt Lipstick 06 Million Dollar Orange. It is 3.4g and full-sized ($12). I believe this is not exactly coral orange but more of a brick reddish-orange. It looks more cherry-ish than orange-y.

The lipstick is pretty pigmented, though it does smudge. However, I love it for it’s packaging. I will pass this to my youthful-looking mum who loves bright lip colors.

Another Dearberry product is the Today Nail Lacquer and I got shade #20 Fantasy. This product retails for $3 and is 10ml.

The color comes of as a papaya orange. It is a little creamy and definitely more orange than the lipstick. I am not sure about nail polishes since I don’t often wear them, but memebox seem to love including them into their boxes. Manipedi enthusiasts rejoice!

 

L’ocean Eye Shadow L-29 Pastel Orange is 4g and costs $10, which is a little steep considering that it is not as pigmented as I hope it to be.

Unfortunately it does not show that much, but for a light makeup person like me, I think I can play around with this. Maybe a primer can help with the color.

The last item is my favourite: Tosowoong Bronze Spectrum Waterproof Gel Pencil Liner #11 Sunshine. It is 1.2g and costs $14.

HOLY. It really doesn’t smudge! Waterproof wise, probably a little. It does come off easily with soap, which is good. I love the shimery bronze color, and it is super easy to glide on. I love this the most out of the 4.

Tony Moly Shiny Foot Super Peeling Liquid

 

 

image

 

I got this foot peel from the beauty swap with Eugenie and just got to try this recently. I have always wanted to try a foot peel since the Holika Holika one didn’t really work for me… Thing is, I don’t have callused feet, but it does look a little worn out and the heel could be pinkier like a baby’s!

(I don’t have crazy paper-like grotesque pictures to show for, but bear with me, okay?)

Ingredients, instructions and etc.

The TonyMoly Shiny Foot Super Peeling Liquid claims to

1. Remove stubborn dead skin cells
2. Restore moisture
3. Remove odor
4. Keeps feet clean
5. Dissolves fatigue <- huh? haha maybe like a foot spa?
6. Relieve stress <- yeah stress from ugly feet

So I got down to business!

There is a cotton compartment in the plastic bags. Put your feet into the cotton socks, pour one packet of the liquid into each sock and tie it up. I like that there is a small TonyMoly sticker for you to seal the bag properly as it is a little big for me.

Viola! Time to do some waiting.

90 minutes is a tad long but if you spend time watching movies then it flies~ Other then the cold sensation of a wet feet, there isn’t much discomfort with this product.

 

Make sure you wash your feet properly after 90 minutes and towel dry it before slapping on some shiny foot cream. It gets tricky to go around the house afterwards so the tip is to wear 100% cotton socks everyday after moisturizing.

Good for one use for me…

I use my Body Shop body butter every night after, before I sleep. It helps to do this as a routine even after the whole peeling process is done.

And the moment of truth…
Here are the results!! (not as wow as some of the photos out there but its something)

image

 

My feet feels…new and pink! You don’t see results in the first 4 days but afterwards there is a bit of a dusty mess going on so make sure you wear socks all the time! I had to suppress the urge to peel off the bits~

After day 5, I used a loofah sponge to remove the flaky bits in the shower. Only on day 6 did the heel show peeling. It is not miraculous for me but I love the novelty factor of this peeling liquid.

I might repurchase after my long Europe trip when my feet are all worn out again. Have you tried any foot peeling product and which did you like best?
