Memebox Intro to XO Youtubers Box

I haven't had the greatest experience with subscription boxes in the past. I tried Birchbox and Ipsy and while I think they are great services, I found the products were either not for me or too small to be worth it. I actually signed up for Glossybox and as soon as my July box comes you can bet a review will be up (I've heard good things). Anyways, the great thing about Memebox is that most of the boxes are one time purchases at great values. You get to see what's in them ahead of time as well. I've purchased a few things individually (as you can do with all items in the box) and this was my first value kit. The Intro to XO Youtubers Box would cost you $97 if you bought everything individually, but costs only $35 (plus there are a bunch of promo codes online). Here's a first impression of each item, but let me tell you upfront, this box would be worth it even if it only had half the items included.

Pony Shine Easy Glam 3 Eyeshadow Quad #03 Orange Bloom ($18). There's nothing super special about this--colors are decently pigmented and not really "orange" but more of a coral brown combination. The pans are quite large and they do blend well together.
Yeondukong Easy Shading Stick #01 Contouring Brown ($12). I really like this. It's not too orange and is the perfect cool contouring color. I wish the stick itself didn't have such a large surface area--I think the best way to apply it is to swipe some on your brush as opposed to your face. Since it's so creamy, it does blend out quite well.
Yeondukong Fix Lip #01 Red Orange ($12). I'm not normally a red lip wearer, but this true red hue is a nice foil to the marsala shade included. It's supposed to be a 3-in-1 balm, lipstick, and primer combo. I haven't worn it on the lips yet but it swatches quite nice.
Soyoung Lovely Concealer #01 Beige ($11). This is a great creamy concealer that can either be worn alone under the eyes or on top of another shade to brighten up. It has a great texture and seems quite hydrating.
Dayeong x Memebox XO Black Face Brush ($22). If you've always wanted the Bobbi Brown Full Coverage Face Brush but don't want to splurge on its $40 price tag, I suggest you get the box just for this. I used it to apply my foundation and with the exception of being a little less soft, they are exactly the same. Dupe alert!
Kyungsun Bad Girl Volume Mascara #01 Mad Black ($12). Now here's something you don't see too often on the US Beauty Market--a dual mascara with wands for both top and lower lashes. I'm often quite lazy about doing my lower lashes but with a brush included it's so easy to do! I really really like the top lash mascara--it gives quite a sultry, full and lengthy effect.
MakeupByEvon #HDReady Cream Matte Lipstick #03 Daring Marsala ($10). Oooh this is a gorgeous mauve shade! I've only worn it on the lips so far but imagine it could also work quite well on the cheeks. It provides a semi-matte finish.

If you're bored of the products on the US Market, or are a bargain hunter, this box will work for anyone! The amazing price point makes each item less than $5 if you use a promo code, with free shipping to boot. There are no duds in the box, which is quite rare. Memebox you have outdone yourself!


  1. I like the look of that mascara, looks like some great Items x

  2. $97 worth of products for only $35?! That's such a steal, and you picked up some great items! The lipstick looks incredible!
