I got another Memebox! I ordered this at the same time as my first Memebox, the Thumbs Up! one, but it didn't ship out until October 8th (which was two days sooner than it said it would ship, so that's pretty awesome). I got my box on the 18th, so ten total days in shipping isn't too bad, especially for cheap shipping from Korea.
I was both excited and...not concerned, but. Hmm. What's a good word? Excited but anxious? No. I don't know how to say it in a succinct manner. I was excited for this box, but I was also kind of worried about what might be in it and how useful the products would be since it's a Halloween box. Overall, I think this box turned out pretty great and useful!
Memebox is a Korean "subscription" service that now has a U.S. presence! It's not really a subscription service since you don't subscribe to it; you pick and chose which boxes you want and it's more just like a mystery beauty box service. All the boxes have different themes and there are regular Memeboxes which have both full-size and sample-size products in them and then there are Superboxes which are all full-sized products. The costs of the boxes vary; Superboxes could be cheaper than Memeboxes, it all depends. You do have to pay for shipping, which is $6.99 for standard shipping with can take 10-20 days, or you can shell out for EMS. Memebox runs a ton of specials, though, and you can get "value sets" of two or more boxes (they pick which boxes, though) that ship together with upgraded EMS shipping for only $6.99. Not bad. My only issue with Memebox (besides paying for shipping, but that's a given by this point) is that you order your boxes about a month in advance. I ordered this Halloween box back at the end of August. I'm an impatient person when it comes to ordering things (mmm, delicious instant gratification) so it can be hard for me to wait. It's totally worth it, though. There are some boxes that are shipping now/will ship very soon, but I think those tend to be the less popular ones since they're still in stock. Some boxes sell out stupidly quick, like the "Cute Wishlist" ones, which can be frustrating (but I was totally able to snag one. It just doesn't ship until November...).
Next up is the Revecen Cake Eye Liner in Black. Sorry for any wonkieness here; I really wanted the two pictures to be side-by-side and it took forever to get the image-sizes just right. This is, as the name would suggest, a black cake eye liner. You use a wet brush and it turns into a gel-like eyeliner, which is pretty awesome. This is great, as they suggest on the info card, to use to draw designs on your face. Like a spider. Or stitches. Or anything, really. It says you can use this as an eyeshadow, but I think it works best as a liner.
And that's my Memebox Superbox #59 Halloween Special! I paid $30 for this box, not including shipping, but I got a deal on that so it was only like $3.50. I got seven full-sized products with a total value of $101! Memeboxes are pretty awesome because they're a surprise, they contain harder-to-get Korean and Asian products, and you get more than you paid for! The only downside is that you basically have to wait forever for them to come. But in the end it's totally worth it!
Thanks for reading! <3
