I have stayed away from Memebox Makeup centric boxes ~ the exception was the ColorBox Blue, which I only got because I could get free express shipping, and it turned out I loved that box, btw. However, when Memebox came out with their 2014 F/W Colors Box, which features purple, berries and greens, I just had to get it. Because I love berries, purples and greens! I am so excited to get this box!

Memebox Superbox #43 2014 F/W Colors
Fresh off the runway makeup trends can be daunting, no doubt. So we made it simple and easy to find your best 2014 F/W runway makeup colors for non-scary, everyday Korean looks! We browsed through endless Pinterest and Instagram likes for hours looking for the hottest autumn makeup colors 0f 2014. We swooned over bold jewel tones, delicate pastel shades, just bitten berry colors for eye to lip and nail beauty trends, and finally came up with the perfect fall trend color concoction! Here’s what we fell in love with! African Violet: The beauty of purplely violet is that there’s a shade that works on every skin tone. From eyes to nails and lips, violet is a universally flattering shade this fall! Hemlock Green: Embrace your inner free-spirited ocean lover chick with this ultra refreshing hue. Just Bitten Berry: Make a loud statement with look at me bold berry hues this fall.
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!
DD’ell Stay Forever Gel Eye Pencil in 06 Twilight Purple This is beautiful smokey violet color. It is lovely and I will get a lot of use out of it. I see smudging this out instead of just doing a wing at the end. I am a huge fan of colored eyeliners. Full Size 1.2 g Value $14.00
DD’ell Stay Forever Gel Eye Pencil in 08 Garden Light This is another bright color, very spring green ~ think of how leaves look like when first start appearing on trees during springtime ~ the green is so dazzlingly vibrant that it looks unreal. Another fun color to use! Full Size 1.2 g Value $14.00
DD’ell Illumination Eye Shadow in 15 Shimmer Green A wonderful green shimmer color ~ it isn’t a light mint but it isn’t a deep green either. I love how DD’ell has shown how to wear it in the image below. This is made with pearl powder and blackberry extracts. Full Size 2.2 g Value $11.00
Shara Fairy’s Perfume Nail Polish in VL01 Lilac Bora First thing I thought of when I saw the fairy on the cap
From Doctor Who Episode “Blink” “The angels have the phone box” ~ The Doctor
I watch too much sci-fi/fantasy! Anyway, this is really a nice darker-lilac pearl color. I do not have one like this at all in my collection. It is supposed to be floral scented, but I don’t smell it ~ smells like normal nailpolish to me. This nail polish contains wine extract, macadamia seed oil and collagen to strength nails. Full Size 65 g Value $4.00
Witch’s Pouch Love Me Blusher in 07 Sexy Swan I am so pleased to get this blush and am very glad it isn’t a cream blush. Why this is called Sexy Swan, I have NO idea. This is a shimmer pink-coral, very fresh looking and is made from 4 different herbal extracts. Corals seem to be a popular color in Korea 😉 This blush has a hidden section under the actual blush product where a small brush is encoded ~ very handy! Full Size 11 g Value $14.00
Product Description: Look radiant and youthful with this ultra-blendable blush that gives a natural look and finish!
Ingredients: Talc, Dimethicone, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc stearate, Mineral Oil, Diisostearyl Malate, Allantoin, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract/Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract/Origanum Vulgare Leaf/Flower/Stem Extract/Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Extract (+) CI 77492, CI 77499, CI 77491, CI 15850, CI 15985, Ultramarines, CI 15850:1
Witch’s Pouch POPO Lipstick Oh, I am dying here! This box is the best! I wish Memebox sent us out BOTH colors and not just one or the other Full Size 19 g Value $12.00 Randomly selected from S21 Burgundy Wine or S23 Orchid Plum. I received S21 Burgundy Wine, which looks so dark in the tube, but when applied, is a more sheer plum-wine color that can be built up ~ perfect for fall.
Product Description: Paraben free and rich in texture, this POPO Lipstick works to moisturize and protect lips! It also stains lips with a rich hue for beautiful lips!
Gotta love the logo for Witch’s Pouch
Yadah Angel Lip Tint 02 Red Wine Oh, well, what is a makeup Memebox without some red? This swatches as a red, but when applied onto my lips, looks more natural and pink, not the hot vivid color in my swatch. This is interesting, the color comes from Gromwell flowers! I am glad that Memebox sent this color instead of Juicy Red, as that one is more warmer and leaning towards orange. This tint has a gel like consistency and a sweetish fruity scent to it. It can be used as both a cheek and lip tint. Full Size 24g Value $8.00
99.9% Natural Oil, Paraben free, Mineral Oil free, Ethanol free, Triethanolamine free, Propylene glycol free . Naturally extracted colorant from plants (Red tomatoes & Gromwell flowers) with safe ingredients enhanced the lips color naturally and rosy looking anytime anywhere.
• 5-no-Chemical compositions
• A low stimulative lip tint with minimized chemical materials.
• No paraben, no mineral oil, no ethanol, no triethanolamine and no propylene glycol.
• Colorant extracted from natural materials contained.
• As a moist liquid type tint, it makes lips natural and lively with
• Its natural tomato extracts and Lithospermum erythrorhizon extracts.
- Witch’s Pouch Love Me Blusher 07 Sexy Swan ~ heavily swatched
- DD’ell Stay Forever Gel Eye Pencil 06 Twilight Purple
- DD’ell Stay Forever Gel Eye Pencil 08 Garden Light
- Witch’s Pouch POPO Lipstick in S21 Burgundy Wine ~ the photo does not do it justice. It is not brown based, but a plum wine color
- DD’ell Illumination Eye Shadow 15 Shimmer Green
- Yadah Angel Tint 02 Red Wine ~ heavily swatched
This is a hyped up Color Box, featuring purples, greens and berries and I am so pleased with the box, I could BURST!! This is one of the better curated boxes that makes me VERY happy that I purchased it. Usually, there is always a few items in my Memebox that I cannot or will not use, but this box, just like the ColorBox Blue, I will use all products. These are the types of colors I like, along with neutrals. I do not care for oranges or pinks, so that is why I usually stay away from makeup centric Memeboxes.
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 $77.00. ** 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.
