Today I have an unboxing of another Memebox! They just never stop do they? I was commuting today when I received an email about a new box called the "My Cute Wishlist", and you know how I can't resist anything with cute in its name. ;u; But when I got home to check it out, that darn box was sold out already! To be honest I am quite relived it was sold out, my wallet is safe for today. -u-
Anyway, thanks to Memebox for fueling my addiction by sending me this box for review!
Let's look what's inside.~
This time the box is slightly smaller than normal, cuter and less packaging. :)

Cheek Room Makeup Base (Green) || 30ml || $9
I have seen this brand on Memebox a lot, but not anywhere else. They are by a company called Probe Cosmetics, glad I could try them out. First I really find the packaging appealing, I'm no artist, but it seems like a watercolour drawing, quite charming. I've got the green tinted base, there was also a purple one, I would have preferred purple since my face is sometimes too yellow and dull. The only other makeup base I've used is the Etude House Sweet Recipe Base in peach, and comparing the two, this one is much less viscous and applies much more evenly. This also brightens the skin a lot, and smells refreshing. I'm surprised how much I like this, since the one by Etude House was one of my HGs.
Dr. Young Anti Pore: Pore Eraser Balm || 15g || $38
I'm seeing so many "Dr." products lately, Dr. Jart, Dr. G, and now Dr. Young! First time hearing/trying this brand. And also first time trying a pore balm. So far, the texture of this product is my favourite aspect, it's so velvety smooth, and does seems to smooth out and blur my pores. However I haven't really started testing the longevity of this product, so not sure if the wear will be a long lasting one. Also it feels slightly oily, which may cause shininess or even plug pores.
MustaeV Spot Eraser Concealer Pencil No. 5 || 3g || $18
I was expecting this to be a eyeliner, but it's a concealer, so glad! I have more than enough black eyeliners! This is once again a new brand to me, but I've heard it's a popular higher end brand in Korea. The packaging of this was a bit disappointing, it came in a plastic wrap and not a box, and the quality of the wooden part of the pencil feels cheap with a lot of chips on the bottom end. The cap was tremendously difficult to pull of at first, and the sealing tape left adhesive on the pencil and cap. Appearances aside, the important part is the actual product! My first impression of this was that it is an easy to use, smooth concealer! The colour matches my face quite well, and conceals quite nicely too, may be good for the occasional pimple. But I haven't tested the longevity of it yet. But so far so good.~
N.S.M ReBorn Sorbet Melting Gloss || 5g || $21
Ladykin Blossom Blusher (#05 Luna Reddish) || 8g || $15
That's all the products in the box, I liked everything here, and can make use of all of them!
The total value of this box is $101, which far exceeds the box price of $23. Even though some of the prices listed by Memebox may be inflated, I still think $23 for all these products is a total bargain! The only deluxe sample was the Cheekroom Makeup Base, but it's still a good size.
I was afraid since it was a makeup box, it would have wacky colours that I may never use, but it seems like they played it on the safe side with some basics, which I love! :D
Overall I think this is a great box my favourite products are the makeup base and lip tint gloss. Too bad it's sold out now, but Memebox is churning out boxes like butter lol, so another makeup box should be on it's way very soon! But in the main time you may want to check out Memebox Burst of Color or 2014 K-Beauty Wrap-Up No.1!
