Memebox Review: My Cute Wishlist 4

20141203-111834-40714658.jpg

To date, Memebox has done four versions of My Cute Wishlist. The first one was a huge hit and although I was a fan of MCW2 (the only other one I ordered), each subsequent box has been less and less popular.

Memebox is a Korean company that curates beauty boxes full of Korean beauty care. Recently they have stopped offering multiple boxes and are instead focusing on their Memeshop, which sells their cosmetics brand as well as other Korean brands. It’s a real shame in my opinion, as their boxes are a great value and I love the mystery aspect of them. I doubt I will be ordering from the Memeshop much.

Check out their site here.

At first glance, this box definitely seemed like it fit the cute theme. It was pretty much exactly what I would expect from this type of box.

√Čtude House Sweet Recipe Candy Stick in Oh! Orange Candy, Meme value $5.

I love getting lip products like this in my Memeboxes. They are great to keep at work and in my bag. I was concerned that this would be too orange but it goes on sheer enough that is is wearable. It smells like candy too!

Tonymoly Apple Red Tox Honey Cream, Meme value $12.

The last thing I need is a face cream. Seriously. But I really wanted to try this one so I am glad it was included. I actually almost bought the infamous Cutie Pie Marzia 2 box just for this so I am glad I held out. It is definitely very cute and I think it will be a great day cream as it sinks in quickly.

ddung Liquid Eyeliner, Meme value $12.

This is a water proof, smudge proof liquid eyeliner. I usually prefer brown eyeliner because it’s not as harsh looking, but this works and it has cute packaging. I appreciate it when Memebox doesn’t focus too heavily on skincare or makeup in their boxes, unless that is the actual theme, so I appreciate that this box had a wide range.

Tonymoly Egg Pore Nose Pack 7ea, Meme Value $4.

These have charcoal and egg to shrink pores and remove whiteheads and blackheads. They smell very strange, like burning rubber or something. I did feel like my nose felt smoother and looked cleaner after I used this.

Yadah Vita-Whitening Aqua Gel and Puregreen Moisturizing cream, $24.

These better be amazing if the “travel size” costs $24. They are great for travel but they look like deluxe samples, not the full size that Memebox claims.

Pure Smile Choosy Lip Pack in Milk, Meme Value $1.

This has milk protein extracts to moisturize. The other lipnmask like this that I got from Memebox was a total dud, so I hope this is a better brand because my lips need some moisture!

Pure Smile Snail hand Cream Milk, $5.

I have a lot of products from this snail line, so I was excited for the hand cream. It has a really watery texture and sinks in immediately. I have used it twice now and five minutes after applying, my hands felt dry. This unfortunately just isn’t strong enough at all.

Holika Holika Pig-nose Black Head Steam Starter, Meme value $6.

I have always thought this product line was adorable, so I think this is a great inclusion in this box. It is meant to “melt away” blackheads when you massage it into the skin. It also has aloe Vera to soothe. I haven’t had a chance to try this yet.

Overall, the Meme value of this box is $69. It is likely the lowest valued Memebox I have ever received. I like the contents, so I am not bothered by the low value but I am guessing others will take issue with it. If you take out the two travel size moisturizers, you are left with a $45 value!
