HelloPrettyBird X Memebox Haul Of Fame Collaboration Sale & GIVEAWAY!

Affiliate Links Press Samples

Here's a fun fact for you: I'm sure that most of you have heard of Memebox (Korean beauty box company extraordinaire) by now, but did you know that they recently launched an exclusive web store for customers in the USA? The warehouse for the USA shop is also in the USA, which means fast and cheap shipping for my fellow country(wo)men. Aww yeah!

I know a lot of us tend to think of skincare when we think of Korean beauty products, but there is actually a huge selection of awesome makeup to be had as well. Memebox asked me if I would collaborate with them and pick 10 of my favorite makeup bits and bobs from the USA shop to share with you, and to make things more fun for everyone, they've put all of my picks on super-mega sale this week. Not exciting enough for you? Well in addition to the sale, one lucky reader will win an ENTIRE SET of my picks! Memebox to the Meme-max! Let me present to you ... my HAUL OF FAME!


For my "Haul Of Fame", I aimed to choose products that I tried/liked in the past and that fit in with my basic makeup purchasing criteria:

  • Products should be versatile
  • Products should be affordable
  • Products should easy to use
  • Products should be FUN!

The result? Ten unique products that can be used to create a comprehensive look and/or a basic makeup bag. My hope is that my Haul Of Fame makeup bag would be able to get you through a wide variety of makeup-wearing situations whilst putting a smile on your face as you use them!


BASE: Liole Dollish Veil Vita BB Cream in Gorgeous Purple - 15% off -> $13.60 [Reg. price: $16]

Liole Dollish Veil Vita BB Cream SPF25 PA++ Gorgeous Purple Memebox USA Shop swatch

I actually reviewed Lioele Dollish Veil ages and ages ago (link), back when my blog had a different name and my photographs were ... er ... not as good. My photography skills may have improved somewhat, but my opinion on this product remains the same: It's a a wonderful base makeup product that can be used on its own or layered under another BB cream. The coverage is light to moderate—I actually think this is more akin to the CC creams of today than most BB creams. The "purple" variety is meant to brighten skin and cancel out sallow undertones. As you can see above this starts out as whitish-purple color, but blends flawlessly into skin. It also has a bit of SPF—the more the better, I say!


CONCEALER: Lioele Under the Eye Light Concealer - 20% off -> $10.72 [Reg. price: $13.40]

Lioele Under the Eye Light Concealer swatch Memebox USA shop

I don't know about you, but I have TERRIBLE dark circles all the time. Even when I get enough sleep. Thanks, allergies and genetics! Therefore some sort of under-eye concealer is an absolute must-have in my makeup bag. Lioele Under the Eye Light Concealer is awesome because has a light texture (no caking/settling into fine lines around the eyes) and a light pink-biege tone that conceals dark circles in a natural-looking way. It comes with a brush-type tip so you don't even need an extra makeup brush—just dab on and lightly blend with your ring finger.


BLUSH: It's Skin Babyface Petit Blusher in 03 Romantic Rose - 25% off -> $6.80 [Reg. price: $8]

It's Skin Babyface Petit Blusher 03 Romantic Rose Memebox USA shop

Everybody needs a blush or two in their makeup bag, right? It's Skin Babyface Petit Blusher comes in four shades, but I went for 03 (Romantic Rose) because pretty, peachy pinks are versatile and pretty much always in style. Aside from being easy to incorporate into a variety of looks, this blush is awesome because it comes in the cutest packaging ever AND it's travel-friendly. Beauty products with an adorable, kawaii feel aren't always travel-friendly (I'm looking at you, Appletox Honey Cream), but this little guy is compact, snaps firmly closed and comes with a little powder puff that tucks neatly into the case. Squee!


BROWS: It's Skin Babyface Natural Eyebrow in 04 Grey Brown - 35% off -> $3 [Reg. price: $4]

It's Skin Babyface Natural Eyebrow 04 Grey Brown swatch

I don't like to fuss with my brows too much, but they look kind of rough and patchy if I don't do anything, so brow pencils like It's Skin Babyface Natural Eyebrow really come in handy. I love this product because (a) of the included spoolie (very handy!) and (b) shade 04/Grey Brown is perfect for ashy brunettes like me. Black and even dark pencils usually look WAY too dark and look weird. Clown-like, even. Not what I'm going for in my everyday look. This is the perfect balance between dark and light, plus the pencil doesn't rub off easily, AND it's an all-in-one brow solution that you can tuck in any purse or pocket. Score!


EYES: Missha Signature Velvet Art Shadow Quad - 45% off -> $12.65 [Reg. price: $23]

Missha Signature Velvet Art Shadow No.2 Peach Combination gold compact case USA Memebox shop

Every makeup bag needs some neutral eyeshadows. Even if you're like me and are all about colors colors colors, it's good to have a few basic shades on hand to add highlights and dimension where needed.

Missha Signature Velvet Art Shadow No. 2 Peach Combination

I was really attracted to Missha Signature Velvet Art Shadow quad in No. 2 Peach Combination because the shades included are both versatile and fun—you've got your basic champagne and brown, but also a little pop of peach and gold sparkle. Fabulous! All four shades are quite pigmented and glide on easily, even without primer. (See swatches below!)


EYES: Lioele Color Eye Shadow in 15 Bordeaux Wine - 10% off -> $5.40 [Reg. price: $6]

Lioele Color Eye Shadow 15 Bordeaux Wine USA Memebox shop

I wanted to include a purple-ish/wine-colored eyeshadow in my makeup because it feels seasonally relevant to me, and it's a good way to include a bit of color in your look while still being workplace-appropriate. Lioele Color Eye Shadow singles are quite pigmented, and this particular shade (15/Bordeaux Wine) has a bit of shimmer to it as well. Gorgeous!

Swatches of the Lioele & Missha shadows:

All swatched over bare skin. No primer. Wow!


EYES: Lioele Dollish Ink Eyeliner in 01 Strong Black - 20% off -> $8 [Reg. price: $10]

Lioele Dollish Ink Eyeliner 01 Strong Black USA Memebox shop

I'm open to trying new things, but I just can't go without a good black liquid eyeliner in my makeup bag. Gels and pencils are nice, but the precision of liquid is where it's at for me. Lioele Dollish Ink Eyeliner is awesome because it's water-resistant but not totally impossible to remove—check out what happened when I ran my swatch under the tap:

Lioele Dollish Ink Eyeliner 01 Strong Black USA Memebox shop swatch

It didn't budge! That said, if I were to rub vigorously on the wet swatch it would ball up and flake off without too much trouble. I appreciate liners that won't melt all over my face if it randomly starts to rain, but I also hate having to scrub my eyeballs to remove them, so this is really the best of both worlds.


EYES: Missha The Style Mascara 4D - 20% off -> $4 [Reg. price: $5]

Missha The Style Mascara 4D swatch

And what eye look would be complete without a bit of mascara? Missha The Style Mascara 4D is basic formula, great for providing length and definition without clumps. It's also waterproof, so that aforementioned surprise rainstorm scenario won't be a problem.


LIPS: Lioele Essential Donut Glo-Stick in 05 Blossom Red - 20% off -> $8.80 [Reg. price: $11]

Lioele Essential Donut Glo-Stick 05 Blossom Red Memebox USA shop

This Glo-stick won't go neon on you, but it will provide a lovely, natural flush of color to your lips. Everybody needs a tinted lip balm or gloss in their makeup arsenal. But to quote my boyfriend Stan, "Why is this called donut?" Here, I'll show you:

Lioele Essential Donut Glo-Stick 05 Blossom Red

This tinted balm has a creamy, moisturizing core. Great for people with chronically chapped lips!


LIPS: It's Skin Babyface Aqua Gel Tint in 01 Cherry - 35% off -> $5.85 [Reg. price: $9]

It's Skin Babyface Aqua Gel Tint 01 (Cherry) USA Memebox shop

Is it just me or are cherry lips really in right now? It's Skin Babyface Aqua Gel Tint is a gel-like, fruity-scented tint with a doefoot applicator that can be dabbed on lightly for a slight flush of color or built on for full-on cherry-red fierceness. This tint leaves a bit of a stain behind, but isn't as ridiculously drying as some of the other tints on the market can be. Combine it with the Lioele Essential Donut Glo-Stick for lips that shine and won't feel parched!

Swatches:

    I am already a fan of Memebox but am not familiar with any of these products in the giveaway, so that would be a real treat!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thank you for the swatches and the opportunity to win these products :)

  34. Jessica @LuxeandtheLadyOctober 29, 2014 at 5:40 PM

    Congratulations!!! You chose such lovely products. I was so happy to see your name in my Memebox email just now! I've been wanting to try that adorable blush for some time- looks like I will now :).

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would love to try any of these products.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Congrats on this! It's nice to see Memebox working with bloggers that have a history with their company. There are a lot of good items in this (Love the dollish bb cream), but the item that I'm most excited to try is probably the eyebrow pencil. I still haven't found my HG eyebrow pencil, and this comes in good colors.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thank you! Yeah, those blushes are pretty darling. The whole "Babyface" line is adorable, actually.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ah I love your picks and how well-rounded they are! The Babyface blusher is especialy cute ^^

    ReplyDelete
  39. I really like your picks. I want to try the Missha mascara

    ReplyDelete
  40. OK I want pretty much everything! I'm totally in the market for a tint (yes everyone is going crazy for them, yes I am one of those people). I really don't know much about It's Skin or Lioele cosmetics so I'm definitely pinning a few of these to remember!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I was thinking earlier today that I want to try a new Korean lip product, the donut glo-stick looks like something I would like to try.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Agreed! Good luck finding the brow pencil of your dreams - if you have medium to dark black or brown hair these are great choices!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lip tints are awesome, so no shame in going crazy! Lioele is really popular as an internet brand ... It's Skin too, though maybe to a lesser degree. Both do makeup AND skincare! But skincare picks from those brands is a subject for another day.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Your choices are amazing. I was going over your blog and I really like it. Thanks for doing this!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Today is really just such a great day. I'm always on the lookout for a new lip product. I've been blessed with full lips and the chapped feeling is uber uncomfortable.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I tend to have very bad luck with these types of things but it can't hurt to enter... I can always use some more cosmetics!

    ReplyDelete
  47. This Memebox looks awesome! I would love to try the BB cream, since I am in the market for one. And omg that blush is so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Thank you for sharing some love with those gals who live in the states. Awesome products.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ahhh I've been looking at these products! I really want the BB cream. I bought a purple BB cream while I was in China, but the packaging broke :( I've also been eyeing the doughnut glo stick for a while now!

    ReplyDelete
  50. i'm using Missha The Style Mascara 4D now ~ but to be honest i still prefer The Face Shop Pressian Big Mascara ...

    ReplyDelete
  51. I would love to try the Lioele BB cream and eye concealer :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Haha yeah I recognize their names from skincare product reviews, but I had no idea they were in the makeup game. Uh oh...

    ReplyDelete
  53. Might I recommend the brow pencil you try after this one: The Face Shop lovely me:ex design my eyebrow! It's a mouthful but it's, well, lovely. It's designed like this one with a triangular tip and a spoolie. I love it but I admit I'm going to try Rebecca's rec next!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Great picks for a complete look!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I will definitely try that next. I was just in the Face Shop in Philadelphia, but they didn't have this, or I would have picked it up, since I'm actively looking for eyebrow pencils. Thanks for the rec!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Really loving that cherry lip tint and under eye conceler!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm so excited to try the Lioele Essential Glo-stick!

    ReplyDelete
  58. ooh everything looks amazing! I am crossing fingers, toes and braiding my hair to get these lovely products in my life!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I haven't tried that one! Will have to add it to my list of products to look out for.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Haha good luck! Just make sure you braid your hair and not your toes! :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. As long as we're on the eyebrow pencil recommendation train, you should also check out Etude House Drawing Eyebrow! The design and colors are also similar to this one. I have one and it's quite similar to this, actually!

    ReplyDelete
  62. You pick some really

    ReplyDelete
  63. And definitely can't wait to get that Missha quad in the mail - enabler!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Awesome giveaway! I totally wish to win this fabulous contest. Everything is worth trying out and some of the items are super cute and adorable looking. Keeping y fingers crossed! xo

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  66. Congrats Rebecca! I love the look you created in the end, that lip color looks really pretty on you ^^

    ReplyDelete
  67. Your productduct choices are so versatile and amazing! I've never used any of them before, but my dark circles are crying out for a decent concealer.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Congrats on your collaboration with MeMeBox! You selected quite some nice items, I love especially the Lioele Dollish Veil BB. I hope they will soon make some offers for people from Europe, too :)

    ReplyDelete
  84. The Missha eyeshadow quad looks so nice! I love neutral shadows.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Congrats on your very own sale! Great picks! I'd have to say my favorite is the under eye concealer because me and sleep-deprived eye circles are like inseparable BFFs. The liquid eyeliner looks fun too, but it's been years since I've used one. I think I'd end up contributing to my raccoon eyes even more :-/

    ReplyDelete
  86. Thank you very much for the giveaway. I love the color of Lioele Essential Donut Glo-stick. It looks great on you.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Thank you kindly! Winning a liquid liner would be a good excuse to practice, right? ;)

    I haven't tried any of the products. I definitely want to try some of the Korean products.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I love Korean lip products. I like that they are less opaque than a lot of products in the US, it is such a fun look.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Agreed! I like it when my cosmetics smile at me.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I'm the opposite lol! I've had a couple of green ones but never tried the purple.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Ooh wow you're so pretty with or without makeup! <3
