"A batch of rare and beautiful treasures" promised Memebox. Well apparently they were so rare none of them made it into my box!
It was a very light and empty box at first glance. These boxes were only $19 so I did expect them to be on the lower end of the Memebox standard 4-8 products. Maybe we have been spoilt recently but a lot of people have been disappointed by only getting 4 items in two of the mini boxes. I didn't mind the quantity of items but I hoped the quality would make up for it. Sadly it didn't.
In my mind the idea of this was a mini Cute Wishlist, full of tiny cute things. Considering the wealth of tiny cute beauty products in Korea I figured this was one box that would knock it out of the park.
Oh well. At least they didn't put any CutiePieMarzia2 items in *cough apple mojito cough*

|2. Shara Shara Revital Magic Cream 45g $16|
|3. ddung Lovely Girl Mascara 7ml $24|
I guess this is a rare and beautiful mascara? What can I say, its mascara. I am sure it is a perfectly lovely mascara but I am not a mascara junkie. I use Benefit's They're Real currently and it works just fine for me. In fact I am still in a mini sample and have a full size to use as well as a Givenchy sample. Unlike lipstick and blush I do not hoard mascara or try many out. My lashes are fairly dark and I guess a decent ish length so I just curl them, put some on and go. I don't think a lot about it! So I guess what I am trying to say is I don't need this rare and beautiful mascara.
|4. Shara Shara Feminine Single Blusher $7|
This was actually a choice product between Pale Pink and Warm Apricot. I got Warm Apricot which woud be absolutely disastrous and my pale cool toned skin. I cannot pull of peachy blushes at all. The packaging is sweet I guess but a lot of Korean Blushers come in this domed compact with the puff so its not a particularly rare thing, I know Baby Face and Etude House do very similar in style blushes.
This box was $19 and has a Memebox value of $52. I am keeping half of the products and parting with the two final items. I don't hate the box but I don't like it either. I think there are so many better things Memebox could have put in, and for the 'expensive' item to be a mascara? Not hitting my buttons I am afraid!
Memebox seems to be backing away from boxes at the moment. Perhaps things will change in the new year, as they are requesting people to recommend people for them to do collaboration boxes. With the Soothing Sista box being so awesome I don't mind if they stick to doing amazing collab boxes, but I do hope new boxes come soon! The link below will take you to the Memeshop which actually has things in, unlike the box section, and my December code for $5 off a $30+ spend is RQ6V9A!
