Memebox Superbox 44 No Makeup Makeup

I always say that I won't buy another makeup box from Memebox, but this No Makeup Makeup Box I had to buy, especially for someone who doesn't wear much makeup. Here are the contents of Memebox Superbox 44 No Makeup Makeup Box (stated value in USD):

  1. Macqueen New York Mineral CC Cushion Cover SPF50++ PA+++, 13g ($23) (21 Clear Light Beige)
  2. Drww. Power Lift Strong, Cream, 50g ($60)
  3. Milk Dress Silky Velvet Primer, 30ml ($30)

  5. ProYou vita CC Lip Essence Red Rose, 15ml ($24)
  6. Missha The Style Perfect Concealer Natural Beige, 3g ($4)
This box was selling for $29 plus shipping. Total value of contents is $157.00.
This is how Memebox described this box:

"Sure, the "I just wake up this pretty" look looks simple, but it’s actually one of the hardest looks to recreate!
But no worries because we’ll provide all the tools and beauty-perfecting tricks for an effortless no-makeup makeup look with this “No Makeup” Makeup Box.

Play up your natural features with an always in style and always wearable barely-there makeup look. Let your skin do the talking with skin perfectors that allow for a flawless and luminous complexion and enhance your features with stunning and versatile natural colors that will give you a refined and elegant look. Finish off with a naturally pretty pout and rosy flushed cheeks, and you’ve just earned yourself a black belt in beauty.

Don’t get us wrong. We drool over exotic false lashes and squeal over the perfect red lip stick, but sometimes, nothing gets us more excited than the perfect neutral palette!

*Please note that the CC Cream contained in the No Makeup Makeup Box only comes in neutral beige." 

1. Macqueen New York Mineral CC Cushion Cover SPF50++ PA+++, 13g ($23)
Randomly selected from 21 Clear Light Beige, 23 Oriental Pure Beige
Memebox Product Description: "The popular Mineral CC Cushion is widely acknowledged for its high level of UV protection and moisture, effective and long-lasting coverage, and its non-stick, silky after touch previously unfounded in any other CC or Air Cushions.  Dab away with the Mineral CC cushion to feature the ultimate no-makeup look, because it'll bring out the most natural and healthy-looking glow on your face! Plus, the high concentrates of bamboo water deliver instant soothing and cooling effect, making it perfect to be used in the summer times."
How to Use: "Apply the CC Cushion evenly over your face, using the air puff to gently dab it on. The more you dab onto the skin, the more it'll start to glow and look natural.
My very first CC cushion.  I'm happy to see this in here, cause its not something I would go out and buy. I guess the idea of the sponge being used and reused daily has me feeling icky. But since its included here, I'll give it a try.

2. Drww. Power Lift Strong, Cream, 50g ($60)
Memebox Product Description: "Containing Omega 3.6.9, hyaluronic acid, and 5 different kinds of flower seed extracts, Drww's Power Lift Strong Cream works to treat skin darkening and wrinkles.  The best part of this cream, however, is in its function as a makeup booster.  It can also be applied in small amounts along the T-zone for highlighting  your features before or after makeup.  What's more, mix it in with a makeup base or a foundation and apply on your face for a naturally glowing and radiant complexion."
How to Use: "Incorporate the Power Lift Strong Cream into your base makeup Routine according to the product description above."

3. Milk Dress Silky Velvet Primer, 30ml ($30)
Memebox Product Description: "The Silky Velvet Primer works to make your skin soft and silky before application of base makeup.  Made from 'USDA' patented organic ingredients such as rhodiola rosea root extracts, damask rose extracts, and rosemary leaf extracts, this primer is gentle and adheres thinly and smoothly to the skin, filling in all the uneven skin texture and fine lines & wrinkles for a long-lasting, velvet-like skin condition."
How to Use: "Apply the primer evenly and thinly over your face.  Make sure to let it settle onto your skin before applying a foundation or a BB cream over it.
I now have 7 tubes of fullsize makeup primer from all my Memeboxes. It may be awhile before I get to this one.

4. DD'ell Gel Color Pot 08 Snowy White, 5.5g ($16)
Memebox Product Description: "A whitening, anti-wrinkle, brightening, and moisturizing facial essence Now this Gel Color Pot is a real multi-player when it comes to featuring a natural, no-makeup look.  It works as a light snowy-colored shadow and highlighter all in one!  Its texture is cushiony and creamy when applied, and the subtle pearls and sophisticated color formation brings out the best in your complexion."
How to Use: "Highlight under eyes and over the T-zone for a naturally defined look."
I was really curious about this product and had to open it up right away. The product inside is like a spongey cushion.  Its very sheer and shimmery..a bit too much for a 'no makeup' look in my opinion. I can see myself using it as a browbone highlighter for a night out perhaps.
About the Memebox's description, I seriously doubt that this has any 'whitening' or' anti-wrinkle' properties. And I definitely don't see this as a 'moisturizing facial essence.'

5. ProYou vita CC Lip Essence Red Rose, 15ml ($24)
Memebox Product Description: "Enriched with vitamin E, shea butter, jojoba oil, and macadamia oil, this Lip Essence works to deeply moisturize dry, chapped lips and protect it from further dehydration by delivering nutrition from within.  What makes t his lip product so unique is that when applied, it'll alter its color according to individual's lip color and PH level. Thus, the Vita CC Lip Essence will not only moisturize and care for your lips abut also add natural color and radiance at the same time!"
How to Use: "Apply onto lips by pressing the product downwards to squeeze out the lip essence."

6. Missha The Style Perfect Concealer Natural Beige, 3g ($4)
Memebox Product Description: "The Style Perfect Concealer naturally covers up skin imperfections and dark circles and prevents skin tone from darkening throughout the day.  The gentle formula soothes the skin et at the same time strongly adheres to the skin for a long-lasting coverage."
How to Use: "Apply a small amount of the concealer under eyes before or after applying a foundation.  Also apply onto blemishes, red spots, scars, and freckles with the tip of your finger to cover them up and finish off with a powder to settle everything in place."
Overall, an okay box..nothing really wowed me.  I think I really do have enough makeup adn don't see myself buying more makeup only boxes....but then I keep saying that about having enough Memeboxes and haven't quite stopped buying yet.
