Oh my god, it is the 3rd edition of the Memebox OMG!

image

 

Thank god for DHL’s express shipping! The Memebox OMG 3 was shipped on the 15th October and I have received it in 4 days. I bet it could have been faster if there were no weekends. 😛

Anywho, this is a theme curated to make us memefans drop our jaw, but was it anywhere near OMG? Let’s find out!

The box contains 5 products altogether. The box smells like ginseng when I opened it. Not sure if the smell came from the Makgeolli soap or platinum pack. :O

My fav item was this Migabee Bee Venom & Honey cream (50ml, $54). It is pretty heavy for a 50ml cream! The cream has no particular scent and has a taupe-white color. It absorbs upon spreading, without leaving a greasy feel. The previous bee venom product I have tried is the Secret Key one and I experienced no irritating outcomes so I am free to try this! 🙂

I have seen their products on various sites like Gmarket, Rakuten and their main company website. I applaud them for originality and their products feels very luxurious. The price points are also higher than some Memebox products we have seen in the past. This cream retails for about $40!

I will definitely keep this product and use it during the winter months! They do have many other products of the same Anti-pollution/ Bee line range (click pic at the bottom to access page) and I won’t mind getting them at all in future boxes.

The Migabee pore set seems to be the Blackheads Out box spoiler. I didn’t get that one, but envy those who did! This one is at least worth $18.

 

Next product is the spoiler product: Cleomee Three-layer Perfume Donkey Oil Mist (100ml, $59). It is also a full-sized item! We have gotten the Cleomee body lotion in the Cafe box and I think Donkey seems to be the IT trend in Korea or at least memebox at the moment. 😛

image

 

I assure you this smells nothing like donkey. It is a tricolored oil mist that has to be shaken before use. The oil hydrates your skin and provide all the benefits of EGF, donkey milk and more.  It seems that 500ml of donkey milk provides the equivalent nutrition of 30-60kg of cow’s milk!

Check out the ingredients and facts sheet here.

 

Tosowoong is no longer an unknown brand to us memeaddicts. We have seen many products from them, both skincare and makeup alike. The Platinum Pore Tightening pack (150ml, $19) seems to be quite omg because it claims to contain platinum gold and tea tree oil, but the price is rather affordable.

image

 

This pack is actually chocolate colored and perfect for those suffering from blackhead troubles. They should have included the printed advert leaflet because the pics are more OMG than the product itself.

I would give this a try if my skin acts up. I suspect this is the product that emits the herbal smell of the box. Maybe its the tea tree oil.

 

They say you can’t drink and drink but the never say you can’t use a drink to bathe. The On the Body Makgeolli (rice wine) soap (85g, $12) is a pretty OMG product for me, though not too surprising. We are very popular with beers in Czech rep and I have seen many beer-themed bath products here.

image

 

The soap does not smell too fermented or nasty at the moment. I might need to use it to give a proper review, but I am not a soap person. 😛 Gels ftw!

 

This brand is produced under LG care (yes, the electronic company) and in case you read Hangul, here’s the company webpage.

 

This last product is no ordinary one. It is the TonyMoly Delight tint crayon in 06 Neon Pink (2.8g, $8). It claims to glow-in-the-dark under strobes light. The crayon is definitely an OMG to me but I am not much of a party-goer so this might sit in my pouch for awhile before I could test it out.

image

 

Everything totaled up to a memevalue of $152, and I think this is definitely worth about $70 to me.

image

 

I think the OMG series has potential, and although they are not always a huge OMG, the products are almost often great and rave-worthy. I would pick up the OMG4 if I have the moolah!

This box cost me less than $30 because I bundled it with the My Cute Wishlist 3 and added on points + codes.

Eyeing this set! ❤

Do check out the other available memeboxes here and use my promo codes. These are good till the end of October I suppose, and gives a discount of $5 off all orders (good for one use each).

Memebox global #15! We have come a long way~

image

 

Ladies of the beautyverse~ I’ll be unboxing my Memebox Global #15, which arrived within 2 weeks via RM post. I bought this box for $23 + $6.99 for standard shipping. I am sure I have used some points and codes for this and it was wayyy cheaper than $29.99. Look out for the codes and other perks at the end of this post!

This box contains 6 full-sized item + 1 deluxe sized BC cream. Lets dive into it~

♦♦♦♦♦

I shall kick off with my favorite item in this box;
miss.age Snail Anti-Wrinkle Serum (50ml, $53).

Description on the Memeshop:

Enriched with over 5500mg of snail extracts, this anti-wrinkle serum helps nourish the skin from deep within, delivering nutrition and tightening care at the same time. This serum will be ideal for dry, saggy skins.

HOW TO USE
Apply the serum over your forehead, cheeks, and chin and gently spread it over your face. Use it every morning and night.

image

With their tagline “Forget now, feel your glory days” we know that this brand’s target audience is someone above the age of 30. However, anti-aging care starts earlier at a tender age of 25! With the smog and stresses of daily life, it is best to take care of our skin by providing all the nutrients it need.

 

image

My thoughts: When you unscrew the cap and use the dropper, the product dispenses out as a mucinous serum. It is akin mixing the Mizon snail repair cream gel + any ampoule for example the Centella Asiatica ampoule. There is slight to no smell at all. Once spread, the serum turns into a watery consistency and absorbs very well to leave a slight sheen on the face. I think this is a pretty great night care serum~

Do you know this range came from one of the Memefav brands, Re:cipe! You can check out the site by clicking on the logo below;

You can also purchase this product from the Memeshop for only $29 (limited until sales end).

♦♦♦♦♦

There were mixed reviews about having two hair products in the box. I personally didn’t like getting too much, because I have my specific hair care. However, I might be willing to try this out;
Mise en Scene Perfect Serum (70ml, $9)

image

Is this liquid gold? I might have to test it out once I run out of my current fav, the L’oreal Mythic hair oil!
This product contains 7 different natural oils; argan, camellia, olive, jojoba, coconut, apricot, marula.

image

In case you read Hangul.
I like that it is light and does not feel oily on the scalp. It smells like a saloon product lol.

♦♦♦♦♦

This one looks absolutely golden;
Mise en Scene Perfect Repair Treatment Pack (180ml, $16)

It feels like the Mise en Scene came in pair and this is for a 2-step hair care. It was suggested that we should use this twice a week for optimal results.

image

I can replace this with my conditioner after it is gone. The conditioners I have previously received from Memebox are quite good; the Ryo anti-hair loss, Kiss the Perfume Cherry Blossom hair conditioner and some. Honestly, I am optimistic about this one and will give it a try myself!

♦♦♦♦♦

You never knew cleansing can be stress relieving until you encounter the Ariul Stress Relieving Purefull Cleansing Foam (75ml, $8).

image

I don’t know when I will use this as I still have tons of unused cleansers. Maybe I have a problem lol! I know foam cleansers are fantastic to control oily skin, so this will probably go to a friend who needs one as I have normal-dry skin especially in Autumn!

We have seen the brand Ariul previously from the Memebox Earth & Sea (facial mist), and I quite like the funky design of the packagings. Everything feels youthful and fun. Check out the masks on Memeshop!

♦♦♦♦♦

TonyMoly BCDation All Master SPF30PA+++ (20g, full-sized 50g for $24) claims to be the breakthrough product with all BB, CC and foundation formulation. It is a makeup base with added benefits – high coverage, natural-looking, moisturizing, whitening, anti-wrinkle care and radiance.

image

I will be honest to say I am difficult to please when it comes to makeup bases. I have tried hundreds of BB, CC and foundations, and will adhere to my favorite one for a long time. The first BCDation made me skeptical to give this a try as it was streaky and my skin became too shiny in just several hours. I might, when I will run out of the 947572932 BB creams I am trying at the moment. 20g makes it a good travel product though!

♦♦♦♦♦

2 final ones are more makeup products;

Tosowoong Makeon Lip Manicure 30 Seconds (5.5g, $12) in 03 Pure Peach
Shara Shara I Wanna Pencil Gel Liner ($8) in BKo1 Deep Black 

image

These are some of the more usable decorative makeup I have received. I love a good lip gloss/tint and liner for everyday use. The lip manicure looks natural but is a little sticky. It is all gone when I eat, leaving a slight color. I had to reapply.. The Shara Shara liner is pretty standard and does not beat my Japanese liners.

One of the reasons why I think the brand has potential is because their ambassador is L–LOL~ He is a rising star from the group Infinite and is appearing in various dramas lately; “Single Cunning Lady” and “She’s so Loveable” to name a few.

Good marketing strategy.

Well, the box is mainly makeup and haircare- two of the things I do not prefer to receive…but I can’t complain because the regular globals are always random and aims to provide us with a range of stuff to diversify our beauty inventory.

image

Value-wise, everything totaled up to a memevalue of about $118 but I would personally value it at $40. This is my least favorite box of all the globals I have received. I hope the next one (#16) will be more exciting.

Do check out the other available memeboxes here and use my promo codes. These are good till the end of October I suppose, and gives a discount of $5 off all orders (good for one use each).

Testing out: Beauteque Minerals- Mineral Compact Powder

image

Hi beauties! Today I will be reviewing the Beauteque Minerals- Mineral Compact Powder sent by the wonderful company. You can check out all the shades available at Beauteque.

minerals

The package was sent via US priority mail and includes the compact, a kabuki brush and a hand-written letter. Nice touch! ♥

image image

 

Beauteque Minerals- Mineral Compact Powder (2.5 oz/ 70g) is;
Paraben free
Allergen free
Gluten free
Fragrance free

I do not often use a compact powder of any kind because my skin is normal-dry. Many powders have failed me in the past and made me look like a Cake monster (Cookie monster’s sister) so I was skeptical to buy another. From Etude House to Bare Minerals, I have tried them all and my verdict was to not use a powder pact ever.

I was asked by the wonderful Elina from Beauteque which BB cream I used and in the summer, my skin was a tad tanned so of course I was silly enough to say the Lioele’s Super gold snail BB in Warm Beige. That BB cream oxidizes and melts into my skin, so I did not suspect that the tone was darker for my skin at all. I like the natural sun-kissed skin instead of pilling on brighteners and whitish CC creams like Koreans do in general.

 

 

It so happened that I got the Golden Goddess, which is honestly a little too dark for my skin. It sits wonderfully on my forearm where it is still sun-kissed, but on my face (probably with diligent use of the Beauteque facial brush and other exfoliants) the mineral powder is too obvious.

image

 

Swatched with my finger. You can see it is too dark and warm for me..

And you know what? I’ve used it as a bronzer and for contouring!! Cheek bones, slimmer face, taller nose. I have got that covered.

image

 

I have to add that that Kabuki brush is one of the best I have used. So soft and fluffy~ It picks up the powder very well, and a few knocks is all it takes to remove everything. 🙂

Well, here is my short Weekend Makeup Base routine:

1. Exfoliate and cleanse with Beauteque’s Facial Brush + oil cleanser
2. Pat on some essence/ ampoule
3. Mix the Mizon Snail Repair Cream Gel + yellow-based BB cream (to even out the redness/coolness) and blend!
4. Spread it evenly over the face~
5. Finish off with the Beauteque Mineral Compact powder to highlight the cheekbones, temples and nose bridge.
6. Use a makeup fixer/facial mist

Viola. Simply flawless.

image image

For this look I also prefer just mascara and subtle lip color. Throw on some t-shirt and skinny jeans plus the bed hair and guys will swoon lol! (tried and tested 😛 )

If you are like me and don’t match the Golden Goddess, try Porcelain Princess or Beige boo.
The Beauteque Minerals Compact Powder is available for only $30.00 here.

Make sure you also check out their brush and eye shadows or pick up the Beauteque bag! I have received one previously (reviewed here) and love it!

Cheers~ ❤
