Memebox Nylon X Sweet 16 Eye & Face Palette Review

UPDATE:  I have a winner in my Giveaway!   Please check your email 🙂

Nylon, a cutting edge beauty, fashion and entertainment magazine, teamed up with Memebox to create an eye and face palette for their 16th anniversary.  It went on pre-sale in March and I purchased one…as luck (your luck!) would have it, Memebox also sent me this palette for review ~ so I have TWO of them!!  Which means….a GIVEAWAY!  And it will be open to international readers as well.

#ItGirlPalette is NYLON’s special gift to its readers in celebration of their 16th anniversary. All colors were carefully picked by NYLON’s senior beauty editors with a strong emphasis on versatility and uniqueness. Each color packs a punch so you can amp up the night with just one shade, or blend your favorites to create a custom look! This palette is a must-have for all gals that are edgy, trend-setting, and f***ing awesome. Cruelty Free.  Made in the USA



This palette is inspired by our readers, and made for them- because you love NYLON, and we love you right back. Working with Memebox was the easiest thing ever. I scrambled through my eye shadow archives and picked out and swatched some of my favorite hues, and from there it was kind of like putting a puzzle together and making sure all the pieces fit.”
-Jade Taylor, Senior Beauty Editor of NYLON

Once again, Memebox excels in their compacts.  They are not flimsy but very sturdy and have a good weight to them.  This is a black matte compact with Nylon XO Memebox in plum colored letters.  The compact has a nice sized mirror and the layout is the same as the Pony 2 palette ~ 2 double sized colors flanking the vertical sides, and 2 rows of 3 shadows each in the middle. The brush, once again, is crap…toss it out and use your own brushes.

The two double-sized colors that flank the 6 smaller shades are:

  • On the left, The Moment ~ a very sparkly glitter bomb of a pale pink.   The Moment could be used as a cheek highlighter as well as inner and under eye highlighter.   This has tons of fallout and really has a light pigmentation.
  • On the right, Sweet 16 ~ a matte hot, hot hot hot hothothothothothothothothothothothot pink color, that is NOT to be used on your eyes, despite what the models at Memebox have on.  There is a warning on the package that states that Sweet 16 is to be used as a blush only, as it contains a colorant that has not been approved for use on the eyes in the USA, Brazil and Canada.  This would be very pretty with a tan or darker skin tones, lightly applied, during the summer.  It is a pretty color, but very vivid.  This is very pigmented.

On the top row

  • Lilo ~ a matte white, and this is great as an all over eye base.   I am glad that Memebox included a matte eyeshadow
  • Mary-Kate ~ this is a more of a light khaki, not an olive green, and it is a nice shimmer shade.  A very pretty neutral
  • Mischa ~ Memebox describes this as a “grungy rust” and it is the color of autumn leaves, deep and lovely shimmery rust shade.  I would not call this grungy ~ lol  This is very pigmented.

The bottom row

  • Lana ~ a very pretty antique gold shimmer shade.
  • Paris ~ what the heck is “expensive hazel” (Memebox’s description)?  Hazel is green-brown.   Paris is a lovely rose-bronze-gold glitter shade ~ I added bronze, as it isn’t a bright rose-gold, but a tad deeper.
  • Nicole ~ it looks black in the palette, but it is beautiful medium brown with navy shimmers. 


With the exception of Mischa (#4) and Sweet 16 (#8), all of these took multiple swipes ~ Even Nicole (#7) took 2 swipes.  These are not that pigmented and this was over a primer.

  1. The Moment
  2. Lilo
  3. Mary-Kate
  4. Mischa
  5. Lana
  6. Paris
  7. Nicole
  8. Sweet 16


Here is what Memebox had for swatches on their website ~ just a tad different!

  1. The only palette I’ve tried from Memebox was the first Pony palette. I’d like the chance the get this one as it looks right up my alley but unfortunately, I can’t order from Memebox anymore 😦

  2. I haven’t tried any of Memebox’s makeup palettes yet, but I did want to pick up the two Pony palettes at some point and this one too. I’m really disappointed about not being able to use the Sweet 16 color as an eyeshadow, though.

  3. I’ve only tried Pony’s but Kyung Sung’s kits look good. I’ve heard positive reviews on the gel eyeliner so I’d like to try someday. Thanks for the chance!!!!

  4. I haven’t tried any of Memebox’s palettes yet, and based on the new shipping policy I won’t have the chance to order any :(, however as I like a very modest eye look I would consider to buy the first Pony palette or Soothing Sista one. Thanks.

  5. Another person who hasn’t tried any Memebox palettes! The only ones available before they stopped shipping were the Pony ones (and very briefy the Soothing Sista but unfortunately I didn’t have the cash in time!). I love the concept of this one and the colours look ace. I’m pretty unexperienced with powder eyeshadow so less pigmented would be great for me! xx
