WOOT! I am now purchasing my globals in bundles, but I had missed out on #14. However, a few days before August 24th, the day that Globals are scheduled to ship, a few came back into stock and I quickly purchased it.

Memebox Global #14
Hey Memebox fans! Feeling antsy for your next arrival of a Memebox? Don’t fret because we guarantee that memebox #14 is packed with goodies that are worth every second of your wait!
Informational Card which should explain what I got and its value.
As these products are unknown to me and perhaps even to my readers, I am posting a description of the product under my thoughts for every product. Normally, I just do a snippet or if it is a product that doesn’t really need a description, I won’t post it. But for the purposes of my Memeboxes, I will make sure I find the appropriate description, usage and ingredient list if I can find it. The descriptions will be from the webpage that is linked to the product name. Not all of these products are sold in the Memebox Shop, so I had to look for them on various sites. I really had a hard time finding these products, by the way, so don’t be thrown off by the Korean websites that are linked here!
Shower Mate Perfume de Whip Body Wash Florals Randomly selected from 01 Romantic Pink Garden, 02 Pure White Blossom, 03 Marilyn Red Fantasy Florals…well, I don’t dislike them, I am just very picky about them. I love a good body gel, but I do not like heavy florals. I didn’t find these particular products with the Marilyn Monroe images on them so I do not know if these were created specifically for a certain audience or if these are a limited edition. I received the Pure White Blossom, which is very fresh and linen smelling, reminds me of White Linen by Estee Lauder. I am not sneezing when I sniff it, so whatever it is in there, it is okay. However, my second body wash is the Marilyn Red Fantasy. I don’t even need to open it up as it states “rose and jasmine”. Nope, not for me! 50mL x 2 each Full Size 50mL $8.00
Product Description: Shower Mate’s Perfume de Whip Body Wash series works to gently cleanse your body with whip-cream like bubbles and at the same time infuses your skin with 3 of its most popular fragrances – fruit and sweet floral scented Romantic Pink Garden, refreshingly crisp Pure White Blossom and elegant rose and jasmine scented Marilyn Red Fantasy. There’s no need for heavy perfume scents anymore with these natural floral fragrances that you don’t even need to spray on separately.

Beauty People Miss 100 Super Waterproof Gel Liner Auto Pencil Randomly selected from Glam Brown, Glimmer Bronze, Glimmer Coral. I received the Glimmer Coral, which I really like. I think this can be used as a highlighter and in my inner eye to add brightness. I really like these gel liners, they do not smudge or move! I have lots of browns and bronzes, so this did move me out of my normal comfort zone and I do like it a lot. These waterproof eyeliners have a sharpener attached onto the other end, which makes it very handy to sharpen. I will post my swatches near the bottom. BTW – this is one effing expensive eyeliner. Just sayin’ Full Size .6 g Value $38.00
VOV Good-Bye Black Smudge Waterproof Mascara or Good-Bye Black Smudge Waterproof Button Eye Liner. There were two different types of mascara, the lash proof and volume proof and the button eye liner. I really would have loved to get the black button eye liner, but I got the lash proof mascara, which I will gift/trade away. Mascara and I ~ I am very picky about them and I like the two that I have in rotation right now ~ Clinique’s High Impact Extreme Volume and Urban Decay’s Perversion. Full Size 9 g Value $19.00
This is the button liner ~ I am envious of those who got it!
Kocostar 4 Package Set ~ Ggongji Hair Pack 10 each, Face Spot Mirror Patch 8 mL, 5 Finger Nail Pack 3 each, Foot Peeling Pack 2 each Wow! Nice job of putting together a head to toe mask set 🙂 I won’t use the hair pack, I don’t have a long hair, my hair is oily and hair packs just makes the condition worse. I haven’t opened up the Finger Nail Pack, but it states it has 3 each ~ so does that mean 15 “nails”? I did open up the Face Spot and there were 3 packs in there but each pack had 12 “spot” patches, so I am thinking that it is 15 “nail” masks. I am really excited to use the face patches and interested in seeing how the nail packs work 🙂 Value $20.00
Product Description: The ultimate set of packs for treating your hair, nails, feet and face easily in no time at all! First off is a hair pack that you don’t need to wash off after use. Simply place your ponytail into the Ggongji Hair Pack and fasten it with the included hair elastic band. Then there’s the Face Spot Mirror Patch which works to treat skin blemishes and spots on your face. A unique feature of this spot patch is that there’s a small mirror included in its packaging for your convenience when applying the product. Thirdly, moisturize, protect and add more gloss and elasticity to your nails with the 5 Finger Nail Pack. Last but not least, the Foot Peeling Pack works to peel away all dead skin cells from your rough, coarse feet within 4-5 days of application, leaving your feet baby smooth
How To Use:
- Ggongji Hair Pack: Tie your hair up in a ponytail and place it into the pack. Fasten it with the included hair elastic band and rest for 30 minutes. Then remove the pack and blow dry or style the hair with your hands. Keratin amino acid, water based elastin, and organic herb essences combined in a warm based solution seeps in between each hair to provide nutrients
- Face Spot Mirror Patch: Remove the spot patch from its film with clean hands and place it over skin troubles and spots. Remove after 8-10 hours.
- 5 Finger Nail Pack: Wear the finger nail packs over your fingers for 30-60 minutes. Note that the 5 packs differ in size according to each finger.
- Foot Peeling Pack: Cut the pack in half along the dotted line to divide it into two pairs. Wear each on your foot and fasten it with the sticker attached. Rest for about an hour and half, remove and rinse off with water. The dead skin cells will start to peel off within 3-5 days after application.
Sua Young Mineral Essence in Liquid Foundation SPF 33 PA+++ According to my research on this product, you have to shake this product before using the pump applicator, because it is water based. Because this is an airless case, sometimes the pump doesn’t work well over time. Tip: there is a small hole under the bottle and push the bottom of the airless by very small hole – push a needle in there. Like my mascara, foundations, BB creams, tints ~ I am too picky, so this product will not be used. Sample Size 5g Value $4.41
Product Description: If you ever felt that BB creams are a little bit too heavy while CC creams are too light and ineffective for covering up skin imperfections, then Sua Young’s famous MEIN Liquid Foundation is just the items! Free of mineral oils, paraben, alcohol, artifical fragrance, phenoxyethanol and talc, it contains organic ingredients and works to protect and deliver nutrition into the skin. Also, the light pigment of hte liquid foundation allows it to quickly adhere to the skin without any clumping and all the while effectively covers up minor skin imperfections with a long-lasting finish
Recipe By Nature Golden Time Vita Capsule Essence You shake this essence before applying ~ this actually looks like a perfume bottle. Very nice presentation ~ I am not sure if I want to use it, because I love the golden orange hues! When this is sitting upright and is not shaken, the orange liquid floats to the top, with a graduated effect to clear liquid at the bottom. I will use it, but since this is “deep nourishment”, it will wait until the harsh winter months ahead for when I need this type of product. Full Size 40mL Value $42
Product Description: This vitamin essence is literally packed full of numerous vitamin capsules that will deliver deep nourishment and nutrition to your skin, balancing out the oil/moisture level, brightening darkened skin tones and evening out rough skin textures for a much smoother, silkier complexion.
How To Use: After toner application, apply generous amount all over your face and dab it in for faster absorbance.

a;t fox Fantasy Holic Lip & Cheek Designer Pencil Randomly selected from 01 Sweet Orange, 02 Lovely Coral, 03 Rose Beige This is matte chubby pencil that can be used both for the lips and as a blusher. I received it in 02 Lovely Coral, which is a lovey coral, but when applied to my lips, I looked like death. Really, pale corals do nothing for me. However, it works well as a blush, so this is perfect for putting in my purse and doing touch ups during the day, when I look too colorless ~ haha~ I really wanted Rose Beige…but not to be….I cannot find this sold by itself anywhere right now, so I will either have to be very lucky in a trade or watch eBay like a hawk! I am not sure if this product is made from herb tea or if that is just the name of the collection. I found out that “a;t” stands for Afternoon Tea, so I have the feeling their products are made from tea. This company has “makeup cafes” and blogger hipsterrific wrote up her experience when she visited it in Seoul ~ you can read it here. It is very interesting and I recommend checking it out! Full size Value $7.00
Product Description: A smart 2 in 1 item for adding color and radiance to your lips and your cheeks, the Fantasy Holic Lip & Cheek Designer Pencil works to naturally blend into your skin without any clumping and its matte finish last for a very long period of time. If you wish to feature more supple and glossier lip makeup, mix in Holic Lip & Cheek Designer Pencil with a lip gloss.
How to Use: Apply the Designer Pencil onto your lips. When used as a blushes, gently roll it over your cheekbones and use your hands to blend it in

I love that this box had so many masks, as I am a mask fiend!! Totally jazzed for all of these fun masks and never had a “finger mask” before. The makeup, welllll…..I do love the eye liner, surprisingly so. The foundation, mascara and a;t fox ~ a big miss or meh. I will use the a;t fox product as a cheek product only. I would have liked the rose beige color, as pale colors make me look like death warmed over. This was a good box, due to all of the masks, eyeliner and essence.
I paid $23.00 + $6.99 in shipping, for a total of $29.99 ~ I am sure I had Memepoints and this box was much less ~ and received a MemeValue ** of $152.14 OR is it $212.14 ~ I am not sure if the Kocostar pack is 20.00 total, or $80.00 (20.00 per product). ** What is MemeValue? It is my term to describe the value that Memebox puts on the products, which can be very over inflated. You can usually find these products at a lesser cost, so I do suggest researching first if you wish to purchase them.
Did you get the Memebox Global #14? What did you think of it and what is your favorite product? Please comment below and let me know! Do you want to give me the Rose Beige a;t fox product? hahaha
