Calling all lipstick addicts! I like beauty boxes that contain a variety of products, but I'll admit that lipsticks, glosses and tints are often the things I get most excited about. I like colors, man! Today I'll be unboxing Memebox Superbox #49 All About Lips, which promised to be all lip products all the time! Awww yeah.
Here's a little bit of background info on Memebox in case you're new to it: Memebox (pronounced mi-mi-box) is a non-subscription beauty box service and online shop based in Korea. Every month Memebox releases several new beauty boxes that customers can purchase as they like. They ship to over 50 counties—check here for the complete list. At the moment they offer several different general types of boxes:
- Memebox Global Box: The "classic" version of Memebox, priced at $23 + shipping. A mixture of mystery deluxe samples and/or full-sized products.
- Memebox Special Box: Mystery deluxe samples and/or full-sized products curated around a theme. Prices vary but many of them are also $23 + shipping.
- Superbox: Made up exclusively of full-sized items curated around a specific theme or brand. Prices vary.
- Lucky Box: Mystery selections from past Memeboxes, priced at $23 + shipping. These only pop up once in a while.
Superbox #49 All About Lips sold for $23 + shipping and is obviously comprised of nothing but full-sized products. I'm one of those people who always has like five different lip products in my purse at any given time, so naturally I was excited about this theme.
Cheek Room Color Lips in 03 Red (4g, value $10):
Customers received this lipstick in one of three shades: 01 Orange Peach, 02 Pink, or 03 Red. I was excited when I saw this, because I love bright red lippies—as it turns out this has sort of a glittery/frosty finish though, which is not exactly my cup of tea. The formula isn't bad—it's smells nice and glides on smoothly. I think the sparkle would put me off from wearing it on the regular though.
Royal Nature Paint Mousse Lip Lacquer in PK150 Hot Place (5ml, value $24):
Customers received this in one of five shades at random. This was my favorite thing in the box in terms of color and formulation—it's definitely a bolder shade, but it doesn't look quite as bright and crazy on my lips as it does in the tube. That said it is very pigmented—not for folks who only wear a neutral lip! The finish is semi-matte and non-drying. All in all, a win for me!
RiRe Tick Tock Lip Gloss in 02 Chiffon Coral (3.5g, value $18):
Customers received this in one of five shades at random. This is a very vibrant coral shade with a slightly orange undertone—not sure it suits my skintone, but it's amazingly pigmented for something that bills itself as a gloss. I think it's actually more like a lip lacquer in terms of consistency and color, it just have a glossier finish if that makes sense? This product also has a unique mechanism for releasing the applicator:
You have to press down on this button while you're untwisting the cap, otherwise you'll never ever get it open. I'm assuming this is to prevent air from getting into the tube?
Shara Shara Petit Friend Tint Lip Balm in OR01 Crown Orange (20g, value $8):
This is a combo lip balm and tint. I haven't opened this yet because I the same product in a different color in the first CutiePieMarzia box, and I'm still working on that one. Basically the "balm" part is a clear, jelly-like substance and there's a tinted portion shaped like a crown in the center (check out my review of the aforementioned CutiePieMarzia box to see what I mean). I have kind of a love-hate relationship with this product: On one hand it's kind of messy to use, but on the other, it smells like delicious fruit jam. I like delicious fruit jam. I keep using the one I got I got in the CutiePieMarzia box so it can't be that bad, right?
Cheek Room Lip Tint in 01 Red (8ml, value $12):
Customers received this in one of two shades at random: 01 Red or 02 Orange. This is a gel-type tint, sort of similar to the It's Skin tint I reviewed as part of my Memebox Haul Of Fame, however this one isn't nearly as pigmented. I think this actually works better as a cheek stain because it's so subtle, but as a lip stain? Barely registers on me. Close but so far!
Very Six 6 Seconds Kissing Lip Gloss (10ml, value $17):
This product is interesting. It starts out as a clear gloss, but after a few seconds it turns slightly pink! I tested on my lips and my hand and the change is interesting to watch. It isn't super-pigmented, but I appreciate the idea and also just love the texture. It actually feels more like a balm than a gloss to me, and it has an awesome scent—sort of like jasmine I think? Big win for me!

I liked this box! The Cheek Room products were a miss for me, but I thought everything else was interesting and of good quality. My top favorites from this batch are the Royal Nature Paint Mousse Lacquer (that color!) and the Very Six 6 Seconds Kissing Lip Gloss—silly name, but I love the scent and texture.
