Hey guys, sorry for the major lack of posts recently. I've been super occupied with College and work, but the main reason is I've just been lacking a little inspiration. But, after taking some time away from blogging I'm back full of ideas and things I'm excited to write about. I just hope everyone hasn't forgotten about me >.<
I have been meaning to write this 'review' or unboxing for a while, but on the plus side I've had a good chance to test all the products and find which ones I really love, and which ones I don't. This was my first ever Memebox, I took so long deciding which one to get! I like the idea of these beauty boxes a lot, and the fact you have a selection of boxes to choose from sets Memebox apart from other brands. But I'm always hesitant I won't like the products inside, and I'll feel like I wasted my money.
Luckily, I got the chance to try one out for free after winning a giveaway, so without further ado here's my review of the #56 Memebox.
1. Revecen Volumising Mascara
Double the volume of your lashes with the Revecen Volumising Mascara. It's completely waterproof, smudgeproof, paraben free, and made from naturally derived vegetable wax, vitamin, allantoin, collagen and vegetable squalane.
Honestly I wasn't incredibly impressed by this mascara, though I will still use it for sure. The packaging looks expensive and it's surprisingly heavy, I hoped that the quality of the packaging would reflect the product inside but unfortunately it didn't quite meet my expectations. The wand is nice, it has a curved brush so you can get right into the roots of your eyelashes, but the formula just didn't do that much for my lashes. I wouldn't say it was volumising in the slightest, it only added a little length. However, it was waterproof and lasted all day without smudging, so even if it takes a lot of coats for me to be satisfied, it is worth putting it on.
2. Shara Shara Petit Friend Matte Lip Crayon
This auto-type lip crayon glides smoothly onto the lips, leaving a highly moist and supple yet soft and silky finish. The colour ranges from natural nudy pink to hot, savvy shades for featuring a signature lip makeup.
It's just coincidence that the first two products on the list are ones I didn't like, I promise this whole post won't be a negative review>,< But this is the product that disappointed me the most, purely because it broke before I could even test it. All I did was take the cap off, but the whole lip crayon came with it and got stuck in the lid. I tried really hard to get it out but eventually I just got frustrated and threw it away - that's why I don't have a picture! Sorry I can't give a better review, I don't know if it was just my one that was faulty, but either way I'm not going to repurchase it haha.
3. Shara Shara Triple Shine Colour Shadow
A baked type, silky textured shadow palette offering 3 shades of a colour that helps create naturally blended eye makeup. For instance 04 White Pink contains a white base colour, a lighter pink for graduation, and a darker pink for point makeup. The shadow is also infused fine pearls that adheres well for a long lasting, silky finish.
Because this was the same brand as the lip crayon I was very careful opening this product, in fear of it breaking. Thankfully it didn't, and I'm glad because I actually quite like this little palette. It's pretty small, but the colours are super shimmery. I got 04 White Pink like in the description, which I'm chuffed about because that's the one that caught my eye. The colour payoff it really not bad, and although I haven't used all three colours together, they are really pretty as base shades, and the white is a super cute highlight colour. I didn't notice any creasing when I wore it either so overall I'm pretty impressed!
4, Revecen Face Control Foundation #002 Violet
This unique face control foundation works to cover up skin imperfections and control dull yellow skin tone for a more refined, evenly balanced, and healthier looking finish to with base makeup. Plus, it contains natural preservatives such as green tea extracts and magnolia extracts, and thus gentle and suitable for all skin types.
I like the idea of this product, and I've used things with a similar concept, but sadly this made basically no difference to my skin. I don't know if my complexion isn't yellow enough to need correcting, but I saw no improvement to my skin, and I tried this multiple times putting on different amounts. Plus, it's quite hard to apply because it's like a solid foundation - it doesn't spread over the skin very well either.
5. Beauty People Miss 100 Auto Gel Pencil Liner
Feature a sophisticated point eye makeup with Beauty People's gel liner pencils that come in 3 delicate pearl shades - coral, bronze and brown - and can be used as both a liner and a shadow. They're auto type liners that easily glides onto your eyelids, making them easy to use even for makeup beginners. Plus, there's an eye liner sharpener attached on the end for your convenience.
Now this is by far my favourite product in the box. I literally used this everyday for three weeks I like it so much. I received the 'Gleam Brown' shade, which was great because I've been searching for a good dark brown eyeliner for more natural looks. Basically this is literally one of the best eye pencils I have used. It stays on all day, with no smudging at all, and it applies like a dream. The colour is pigmented and has a little shimmer in it which is super pretty but subtle on the eyes. My only tiny quarrel is that it's a twist up pencil, which although is practical, means you loose the sharp point when you twist it. This just makes application a little more awkward, mainly because it's hard to get a sharp cat eye when the end of the liner is rounded. But that doesn't deter me from using it, and I'm definitely going to look for more colours of this eyeliner!
6. IdeeB Real Triple Rouge 02 Shine Pink
Plump up dry, chapped lips with the all in one Real Triple Rouge that combines the functions of a lipstick, a lip tint and a lip gloss in a single item. It adheres tightly onto lips without dehydrating and creates a shiny suppleness and a long last radiance.
And finally another item that I fell in love with. I really wasn't expecting the pigmentation of this products to be so good, but it's super vibrant. Because it has elements of a lipgloss, the formula keeps your lips moisturised all day long, and the colour stays too. The packaging is super cute, and it's kind of a coral colour which I think would suit a lot of skin tones. I genuinely have no complaints with this product, it's really good and I plan to research the brand a little more in light of this Memebox!
