I only purchased this box as I wanted the Elixir Skincare box, and this bundle was the only one left that had the Elixir option. I normally do not purchase makeup centric boxes from Memebox, because I normally do not care for the colors that Memebox puts in the boxes with the exception of gel eyeliners. I am not a fan of peach or orange lipsticks, highlighting beam creams and BB creams. I am pretty savvy with makeup and therefore really picky. Anyway, I am only doing an unboxing of F/W Natural Makeup.

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!

My overall impression of this box….I had been expecting a nice neutral palette or shadows not a silver shimmer glitter, nor a shimmer highlighter. The clear mascara is more for the No Makeup Makeup look but I suppose one could argue that the natural look doesn’t use brown mascara. This box doesn’t know what it wants to be ~ a party girl with glitter products or a no-makeup neutral look with brown eyeliner and clear mascara. Having “glow” does not mean glitter.
I would have thought there would neutral matte/satin shadow palette, a nude lip gloss ~ Mizon has a great nude brown that is beautiful, a BB cream (check), neutral eyeliner (check), a warm toned blush and maybe a mascara. The description specifically stated “accentuate your eyes with a palette of earth baked colors for a sultry look” and I am confused what went wrong in this box. There are no eye shadows in this box that are “earthy” and “baked” and “sultry”. A wintery silver color is not that. Very disappointing box for those who were looking forward to maybe trying out the new Meme-branded eye shadows, which would have fit this box’s theme perfectly:
I did not swatch any of the product as this box has found a nice, new home with someone who will appreciate it 🙂 This box is fine as a makeup box with no theme, but it failed on the description and theme that Memebox had supplied. I actually liked the Wake Up Makeup box a lot more!!
I purchased this box for $23.00 + $6.99 in shipping, for a total of $29.99 The total MemeValue of this box is of $99.00.
Did you get the Memebox Superbox ##73 F/W Natural Makeup? What did you think of it and what is your favorite product?
