Unboxing Post: Memebox Superbox #58 Lipstick Box

This is for all you lipstick junkies out there! You can go through the rest of this month with the same sheer balm that has become part of your daily makeup ritual, or you can throw caution to the wind and try something totally new! Team Memebox has hand-picked these super rich, super fun, super beautiful lipstick shades that will become your new lip favorites! From unabashed bold hues to classic shades, you'll be ready to sport some vicious lips with these hot lippies form top-of-the-line Korean brands!
Honestly, I wasn't really interested in purchasing this box; my eyes were really on the Cafe Box (see unboxing HERE).

However, when I checked the VALUE SETS section, both the Cafe Box and the Lipstick Box were bundled together. Then, I figured that it might be better to take advantage of the FREE EXPRESS SHIPPING Memebox offers on value sets.

Since this is a 'lipstick box', I assume that there won't be glosses or other lip products that are not lipsticks at all. Though, I admit that I'm quite worried on the possibility that Memebox might put a product that is totally unrelated to the box's theme. For all I know, Memebox has done something like this before, and I really wouldn't want that to happen to the lipstick box.

The lipstick box should be all lipsticks - nothing else.

Aside from that concern, I do hope that the chosen lip shades would suit me well. Well, I embraced the risk, so I guess there's nothing else I could do but to unbox it.

So, after weeks of waiting, here it is:

The box that it came with was smaller than the regular Memeboxes, which made sense, because lipsticks are not supposed to be bulky.

I'm not really good at describing lippies, but I'll do my best to describe them.

So, here they are.They are arranged according to my preferences:

Shara Shara Feminine Glossy Lipstick 3.4g ($12) 

Rich in color formation and smoothly applying its texture, this Feminine Glossy Lipstick offers a wide array of color options and it effectively coats your lip with a high level of radiance and long-lasting suppleness, which comes from its gentle formula enriched with Damascus rose oil and rosehip seed extracts. 
This was the very first lipstick that I opened, and I was pleasantly surprised. Its container is somewhat bigger than your typical lipstick, and it has a unique packaging, too. Above all, its color is so pretty.

I got CR02 Brownie Peach, which is so adorable. It's like a muted pink. Not too bright, and not too dull either. I personally think it would look great on different skin tones. Also, by the looks of it, I think it's perfect for everyday use.

Karadium Movie Star Lipstick 4.5g ($29)

Karadium's famous Movie Star Lipstick combines a lip balm, a tint, and a gloss altogether in one smart tint lipstick. It will protect and maintain the moisture level of your lip all day long while offering the perfectly long-lasting waterproof, vivid, and non-sticky glossiness! 
I wasn't really fascinated by this lipstick at first. I had this irrational presumption that lipsticks named after Hollywood, movie and movie stars, whatsoever (such as this Karadium Movie Star Lipstick), would always lead to bright red lippies, by which I'm not really a fan of.

However, Memebox must have seen through that, and sent us lippies in pink shade. (Yey!) I got 02 Royal Pink, which is really close to neon pink. Think Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj. That's how 'pink' it is. I haven't tried it yet, but I am really looking forward to using it!

It's on the pricey side though, but I'm pretty sure its something else, because it promises the benefits of lip balm, a tint, and a lip gloss. Sounds really interesting!

I Myss 3D Cinema Transform Lipstick 3.5g ($14) 

A magical lipstick that changes its color when applied on lips, the 3D Cinema Transform Lipstick is not only fun and unique but also effective in delivering colorful vibrancy and softening dry, chapped lips. The Pretty Blue applies on with a light pink hue, the Sexy Red with a more vivid redness, the Pink Red with a coral shade, the Funny Yellow with an orange hue, and the Wine Purple with a purplish violet color.  
Back in 2010, I was somehow obsessed with color-changing lipsticks, but I never got my hands on them. I stalked blogs and online Korean shops for months, but ended up empty-handed. Fast forward, four years later, here comes a 'color-changing' lippie from Memebox.

This lipstick sounds promising though. Obviously, I haven't had the chance to try it out yet. I wonder if it really works as a 'color-changing' lippie? I got the Wine Purple, which could turn into a... purplish violet color. Whut????! 

I don't know if what Memebox wrote makes sense. But I'm hopeful anyway. I do wish this would transform! Otherwise, putting this product in third place would be for nothing!

Hope Girl Milky Balm Lipstick 3.4g ($22) 

Hope Girl's Milky Balm Lipstick is the ultimate creamy smooth long-lasting lipstick that stays put for up to 10 hours! Get famously beautiful lips that stand out from the crowd with these gorgeous lip colors packed with Vitamin E. It's guaranteed to keep your lips feeling looking smooth and looking marvelous every second of the day! Plus, how can you resist this perfectly cute packaging?   
Speaking of hope, I got this Milky Balm Lipstick from Hope Girl. I am in love with the packaging! Animal print is screaming sophistication!

It would have been on the top spot if it wasn't for the shade though. I got BG602 Sand Beige, which is a nude color. Nudes make me look extremely pale and ghostly. It's difficult to part from it but I might give this away to friends and relatives.

Ernesti Bijou Bijou Lipstick No. 36 Edge Red 3.4g ($12)

Ernesti Lipstick boosts its high purity pastel color formation which creates that perfect moist, voluminous cherry-like lip makeup so loved among Korean celebs and beauty aficionados. 
I'm not really a fan of red reds. Hence, I just might want to give this away as well. And 'voluminous' lips are not really my thing.

Cheek Room Lipstick 4g ($12) 

Cheek Room's moisturizing lipstick instantly adds abundant color radiance and firmness to your lip with just a single touch. It glides onto lips velvet smooth and offers luminous pearling and emollient effects. 
Here's another nude, in 10 Pink Brown. I somehow imagined its shade  close to Shara Shara's Feminine Glossy Lipstick in CR02 Brownie Peach, which I obviously like (see the top product of this post). However, upon opening, I figured that Cheek Room's shade is lighter than Shara Shara's. A very pale nude, which I'm not really a fan of. 

Somebody might be able to appreciate this even more since I'll be giving this away as well. 


Money-wise, it's a good box. Memebox is always perfect on that aspect. You get your money's worth basically all the time.

However, out of the six items from this box, I considered three items as misses. Since this is an all-makeup box, I guess the hit-miss ratio is pretty much understandable, simply because our physical appearances vary. Some may look good in nudes, while others are the complete opposite.

Nonetheless, I'm happy that I get to keep three lippies, which I believe would last me for a whole year. So, basically, I'm on a no-buy mode on lipsticks from this point on, until of course, I empty every single tube of lippie I have.

Still, thank you Memebox for putting so much thought in this.
