Vagabond Youth is a box that was released last month that was curated with “YouTube beauty and fashion mentor” Vagabond Youth. I have never heard of her, but then again I have never heard of any of the other personalities that Memebox has collaborated with.
One of the major differences with the collab boxes is that the contents are released when the box goes up for sale, this removing any surprise element. This would typically be a deal breaker for me, but when I saw the contents of this box, there were a few must have items and nothing that I absolutely didn’t want, so I bought it.
For those of you unfamiliar with Memebox, it is a Korean company that curates beauty boxes based on different themes. The boxes are typically of great value and it is a fun way to get your hands on some Korean skin and beauty care! To see some of the boxes that are currently available, click here.

Miss Age Essential Lip Rouge in Pure Red, Meme value $17.
This was the one product I wasn’t sure I would use, as I have tons of red lip color. This leaned closer to pink though and had a cool, jelly like texture. My only complaint is that it gravitated towards the edges of my lips, so that wasn’t very flattering. I am going to give it a few more tries to see if I can get it to stay put.
Shara Shara Color Control Cream in Natural Beige, SPF 50+, Meme value $24.
This is one of the products that convinced me to buy this box. I typically use BB creams but wanted to try a CC cream. So far, I really like it and I have been using it almost daily.
RiveCowe Plenty Volume Mascara, Meme value $15.
So far, I am not super impressed with this mascara. It doesn’t apply very easily and makes my lashes very sparse. I always need mascara, but I’m not sure I will make it through this.
Étude House Proof 10 Eye Primer, Meme value $7.
I needed an eye primer, so this was another product that sold me on this box. This one works just as it should. I have noticed a remarkable difference in how long my eye makeup stays put.
dearberry Toc Toc Blusher, Meme value $9.
There was a color variation for this product. I think I got Peach Sorbet. It is a rich, shimmery peach color. I just don’t like the applicator. I feel like barely any color comes out and when I went to use the powder from my Earth & Sea box, which I just got a few weeks ago, the applicator for that one had a bunch of black mold on it! I just use my own brushes to apply these.
Color World Matte Eyeshadow Palette, Meme value $36.
Neutral shadow palettes are a must for me. I love how big this palette is and the colors are pretty pigmented.
Étude House Tear Drop Liner, Meme value $7.
This had multiple color variations. I believe I got #4, which is more of a gold color. It is so pretty and shimmery and I was super excited to wear it, but I have used it twice now and unfortunately it rubbed and flaked off within thirty minutes if application both times. I even tried the primer underneath to hold it in place but that was no help. I guess my eyes are too watery for this type of product.
good’p Madeca Cream, Meme value $24.
From what I understand, this is a moisturizer that is meant to be mixed in with your CC cream. I have been using it that way and I really like it! My skin is desperate for that extra moisture right now but I also walk a fine line between looking greasy and being hydrated. This has really helped!
ideeB Sweet Gelish Eyeliner in Gold Brown, Meme value $9.
I like that this is a gel pencil and I prefer brown eyeliners over black. I have used this once so far and it did the trick.
The overall value for this Memebox is $148 and it was sold for $23 plus shipping! I was blown away by how many products were included. I would have to say this may be my favorite Memebox to date and I am usually not so impressed by makeup items. The CC cream and Madeca cream really made this box for me.
