Memebox Fall/Winter Makeup Box: Cool Tone Unboxing + New XO Lipsticks Shades

As many readers know, I am a light/medium warm tone, but I do have a bit of ruddiness, which makes for interesting makeup choices!!   Memebox recently offered a couple of Makeup boxes from their XO line, which is fabulous, and offered it in cool and warm tones.  After carefully looking at the photos, I determined that both boxes are pretty neutral in their shade selections ~ they are dealing with browns, soft blacks and marsala colored lipsticks.  I went with the cool tone, as the lipstick in the warm tone had coral in it and I am not a big fan of coral lipsticks.   I also purchased a couple of the newer XO Lipstick shades as well, as these looked to be warm toned versions of berry and red.   If you read this in time, use 15OFF60 to get 15% off purchases of $60.00 or more ~ offer expires at 12pm PST 12/8/2015

XO Fall/Winter Makeup Box: Cool Tone

 

Look how cute the makeup box is ~ I got over the fact that my items were not in a pink Memebox, but this kawaii cat face (or rabbit, don’t know) and when you open the box up, it sticks its tongue out!!

All Swatches at the end of the blog post

 

I’m Concealer #01 Moisture Ivory There are only two shades in the I’m Concealer, light (#01 Moisture Ivory) and light (#02 Moisture Beige).  Honestly, I cannot tell the difference between the two shades via the Memebox swatch photos.  At any rate, I received one of the light (#01 Moisture Ivory) and it actually is very nice!  This is a spot concealer, so it makes sense that it would be a little lighter than my normal skin tone.  This contains aloe vera leaf and oatmeal extracts to help prevent caking, dry patches and provide a powdery finish.    Dab it on with its doe foot applicator and it is very glossy, but then blend it out and it dries down to a nice light weight, matte finish.   I wish they would offer some more ranges in shades, however, as I do think this is a nice product with great, buildable coverage.   Full Size 8 g RV $14.00

Description: Instantly brighten up the complexion and cover imperfections with XO Memebox’s new I’m Concealer! This concealer gives a natural finish that can be layered for a full coverage that’s not cakey. It glides smoothly, locks in moisture and lasts a long time. Lightweight, powdery finish on the skin.  Buildable medium to full coverage .

Using the wand applicator, directly apply the concealer onto the blemishes and imperfections you wish to cover. Blend well with fingertips, brush or sponge. Follow up with another layer until desired coverage is achieved.

I’m Eyeliner #EL01 Smoke Black   Memebox changed up their eyeliners!!  This has a eyeliner brush instead of the smudge tip which I guess will help do cat eyes.  I don’t use gel pencil liners to do cat eyes because the tip is too thick, but you can still use this to smudge out if you want to.  Smoke Black is a lighter black and it really is apparent when you smudge it out.  For those who find black eyeliners to be too harsh, you should try this one, as I find it to be a black-grey and not as intense.   This has a twist up, retractable pencil, built in sharpener, and of course, like all good K-Beauty gel eyeliners, will.not.move.an.inch once it sets ~ so work quickly with it!   Full Size .5 g   RV $16.00

Ingredients: Iron Oxides(Ci 77499), Cyclopentasiloxane, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Isododecane, Polyethylene, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Ceresin, Synthetic Wax, Mica(Ci 77019), Diisostearyl Malate, Carbon Black, Synthetic Candelilla Wax, Polyisobutene, Titanium Dioxide(Ci 77891), Disteardimonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate  cosDNA.com analysis

 

I’m Lipstick GL011 Rosy Suede Memebox states that this has blue undertones and is a cool muted marasla shade.  Well, that may be, but it looks pretty neutral to me!!  I love the I’m Lipstick line and have purchased quite a few of them ~ they are highly pigmented, very glossy finishes and leave a bit of a stain behind even when they are rubbed off.   They are made with argan, squalane and rosehip oils as well as manuka honey extracts.   Rosy Suede looks to be a beautiful rose shade that can be sheered out for a more “glass stained” tint on your lips or put on two coats for a dramatic wow.  The swatches below are two coats of the lipstick so you can see how much color there is in this lipstick.   This is one of several new shades that were recently released ~ I did purchase 2 more of the newer shades and will have swatches of these after this unboxing.   Full Size 3.5 g RV $16.00

Left: PG311 Titanium  Right: PB318 Ash Gray

I’m EyeShadows  There were two eyeshadows in this box and they complement each other very well.   One is a shimmery taupe with iridescent fine micro glitters in pink, gold and silver ~  #PG311 Titanium and the other a matte ashy taupe ~ #PB318 Ash Gray.   My swatches below are without primer and you can see how nicely pigmented these are.  These are not soft shadows and there is a little fall out as you swirl your brush around the palette, but just tap your brush and there should not be any fall out on your face as you apply the shadows.  I also use a nice facial brush to gently sweep away any residual powder that might fall onto my cheeks.   These are beautiful neutral shades and the Titanium is really fantastic ~ I love the shimmers in it ~ not too glittery, but with a subtle shimmer that any one can wear.  I own several of the I’m Eyeshadows and they are long lasting ~ they are made with a sebum control powder that also acts like a primer, which prevents creasing and oil build up.  Full Size 1.4 g x 2 RV $12.00 x 2 = $24.00

 SWATCHES

I also included Rosy Suede in here so you can compare the differences between all 3 shades at once.

 

I totally recommend this Fall/Winter Makeup Box: Cool Tone and I am going just say this once (well, maybe more than once..haha).  Save your money and do not bother with the new Pony Effect line, as the lipstick is gritty and not smooth as it has glitter in it ~ Memebox insists that it is pearl infused, but sorry, I had glitter shards in mine.  See my IG post on a nice photo of the lipstick here.   The eye shadows seem to suffer from the Nylon-Palette disease of being too lightly pigmented.   For whatever reason, the Pony Effect line was so over-hyped and the XO line is ignored ~ yet the XO line is vastly superior and less expensive.  I love my original Pony Palettes, but XO I’m Eye Shadow are so much more pigmented and long wearing compared to those.  

Honestly, THROW your money at the XO I’m Series line.   I never thought I would be such a fan girl of this makeup line ~ I was very skeptical about it initially and now I love it.  Totally is worth the money and when Memebox introduces a new line, it usually is discounted quite a bit.    The new shades of lipsticks are really beautiful and wearable.

This box is still available at Memebox for $25.00 with a RV of $62.00.
