Memebox Superbox 60 Back to School by Hope Girl

I really have to eat my word about not buying more makeup boxes...I did it is Memebox Superbox 60 Back-to-School by Hope Girl.  This box was one of those 'unboxed' boxes where Memebox showed you the contents prior to purchase. For only $19 plus shipping, it seemed like a good deal to me. Plus, I didn't previously own any Hope Girl products so I thought I'd give this a try. And just so you know, I"m waaaay beyond school age...I think its the brown eyeliner that got me. Here are the contents (stated prices in USD):
  1. Hope Girl Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil 02 Brown, 1.9g ($18)
  2. Hope Girl Milky Balm Lipstick OR306 Grapefruit, 3.5g ($22)
  3. Hope Girl Nude Skin Color Control Cream SPF30 PA++, 40ml ($31)
  4. Hope Girl Nail Travel Bling Bling Set 09 Neutral Aura, 5g x 3ea ($14)
  5. Hope Girl Teen Teen Star Mineral Eye Shadow, BR03 Purple Brown, 3g ($10)
Total value of goods: $95

Here is  how Memebox described this box:

1. Hope Girl Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil 02 Brown, 1.9g ($18)
Memebox Product Description: "It provides superior line-fixing effect to keep your eye makeup neat from smudging all day long. 5 types of fruit extracts (lemon, grape, tomato, kiwi and pear), avocado oil and vitamin E derivatives keep your skin around eyes shiny and healthy.  It has strong resistance to tears, sweat or oil."
How to Use: "Apply the pencil eyeliner as if filling in the space between your eyelashes.  Make sure to close the cap tightly after the use.  Never forget to use the eyeliner sharpener before the use."
I gave this eyeliner a try right away. The colour is medium brown and contains small flecks of glitter, which I don't really think is necessary...but I"m okay with it.  As for waterproof and smudgeproof..its okay only. I have pretty oily/sweaty eyelid and some of it did rub off by the end of the day. I guess if you're not prone to rubbing your eyes, you may have better lasting results than me. I like that it comes with a sharpener.

2. Hope Girl Milky Balm Lipstick OR306 Grapefruit, 3.5g ($22)
Memebox Product Description: "Hope Girl's Milky Balm Lipstick is the ultimate creamy smooth long-lasting lipstick that stays put for up to 10 hours! Get famously beautiful lips that stand out from the crowd with these gorgeous lip colors packed with vitamin E.  It's guaranteed to keep your lips feeling smooth and looking marvellous every second of the day! Plus, how can you resist this perfectly cute packaging?"
How to Use: "Wear with gloss for added shin, or alone for creamy red finish."
Pretty packaging..but colour way too bright for me..not gonna even try it. I'm sure it would look amazing for someone who normally wears bright colours. 

3. Hope Girl Nude Skin Color Control Cream SPF30 PA++, 40ml ($31)
Memebox Product Description: "When color capsule bursts, the most suitable color for the skin is found.  Then this product makes the skin tone fresh and bright.  it has light and natural affinity to the skin without dullness. Thus it expresses smooth and resilient skin texture.  It makes the skin look healthy and comfortable as you receive skin care since it contains skin friendly ingredients including hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, collagen,almond oil, argan oil and jojoba oil. It protects the skin from UV rays which cause photo-aging, and makes dull skin clean and clear."
How to Use: "Apply a proper amount of the cream to the skin and gently dab it along the skin texture."

4. Hope Girl Nail Travel Bling Bling Set 09 Neutral Aura, 5g x 3ea ($14)
Memebox Product Description: "Deck out your nails with this assortment of festive lacquers and appliques. Keep it chic or sleek with 3 layers of full-coverage glitters.  Celebrate with elaborative Hope Girl nails that will get you noticed wherever you go!"
How to Use: "Apply the color no.1 to entire nails. When the color no.1 slightly dries up, apply a thin coat of the color no.1 up to 1/2 of your nails.  When the color no.2 slightly dries up, apply the color no.3 only to the end of your nails."
This is a cute little set of nail polish. The size is just right, not too big for me as I don't use much polish. I can see myself using the 01 or 02 shades for a neutral look.

5. Hope Girl Teen Teen Star Mineral Eye Shadow, BR03 Purple Brown, 3g ($10)
Randomly selected from BR01 Real Brown, BR03 Purple Brown, BR04 Maroon Brown, BR05 Golden Brown
Memebox Product Description: "Hope Girl's TinTin Eye Shadow is infused with mineral rich coral and pearl powders and thus adheres tightly to skin without dehydrating the skin, flaking away. It'll maintain its color and delicate pearls all day long!"
How to Use: "Use a shadow tip or a makeup brush to apply the eye shadow evenly over your eyelids. Multiple layers will make your eyes look deeper and more defined."
This isn't too bad of a box in my opinion. I guess it wasn't too popular cause it was being sold for a discount with a free gift (using affiliate link). This box is actually still for sale at the moment for regular price.
