Today, I bring you another unboxing blog post of the latest Memebox that has landed on my doorstep. When I got the email informing me of this box’s arrival, I got a bit excited when I read that it will be a KPOP inspired box. I’m not a fan of KPOP music nor am I familiar with the KPOP stars of this generation. But, if there is one thing that I like about KPOP, it is definitely the makeup! Yeah, I’ve seen their music videos and I’ve seen some KPOP product campaigns and I adore their makeup all the time!
Let’s go through each of the products, shall we? I’ve had this box for a more than a week now and I’ve tried out some of the products already so I can give you my first impressions on them.
“Lights, camera, action! From the youthful and innocent girl-next-door looks to glamorous and badass beauty looks, KPOP idols rock the hottest, most up-to-date beauty trends in all of Korea. Take these glam and glitz KPOP idol looks from on-stage to on-the-street and add some spice to your look! Thanks to this 3rd K-Style Cosmetics Box, your makeup look spectrum will range from soft and neutral to flashy and bold looks. Take beauty advice from your favorite KPOP idols and steal the spotlight!”
Secret Kiss Face Strobe Cream (30 ml / $11)
This product is a moisturizing makeup base that smooths out skin texture and creates an ultra-natural radiance. It contains 6 kinds of gemstone powders (for real?!) and various floral extracts and claims to instantly correct a range of complexion concerns. It may be used mixed together with a foundation or a BB cream or as a highlighter. It is recommended for all skin types.
I tried using this product as a highlighter. I’m a bit scared of highlighters because I have oily skin and I always end up looking like a disco ball when I add highlighter to my makeup routine. This one, however, has a subtle shine to it that even oily-skinned gals like me can get away with it!
Vella Flower Flower BB Cream (15 ml / $26)
This BB Cream works to moisturize and smooth dehydrated skin, prime and perfect skin texture, camouflage and color correct skin tone and to protect skin from the sun with an SPF30 PA++. This product is recommended to be used with the Face Fit Strobe Cream to create a dewy complexion.
Okay, this has got to be the thinnest BB cream packaging I’ve seen in my life! Texture wise, this BB cream is very promising. It’s very creamy and very easy to apply. However, the shade that I got doesn’t match me as it’s very light for me. I also noticed that hours after applying this BB cream and setting it with powder, my makeup becomes streaky; as if the product has not been fully absorbed into my skin.
Tonymoly 7 Days Tattoo Eyebrow in 02 Dark Brown (0.8 ml / $8)
This product is a brush-type eyebrow pen that tattoos onto your brows for a pair of perfectly groomed brows that lasts up to 7 days!
I must say that this product is awesome! It has saved me time from doing my brows in the morning and from being late for work! Haha. I find this product very easy to use because the brush is great for drawing in tiny brow hairs. However, the tint lasted for only 3 days on me before it started fading and I had to fill my brows in with an eyebrow pencil.
Style Y Soft Mix & Match Pencil and Powder Shadow in 02 Brown Liner and Peach Tip (0.5 g / $9)
This product with dual ends – a liner on one end and an eyeshadow on the other – can be used to create a variety of eye makeup looks.
The eyeliner is very soft and rich pigmented. I tried using it to line my eyes and as an eyeshadow and it works well for both purposes. The peach-toned eyeshadow is perfect for all over the eyelids and for the inner corners of the eyes.
Style Y Color Fit Creamy Lip & Cheek in 02 Smoothie Pink (5 ml / $13)
This dual purpose product that has a whipped mousse consistency gives a sheer, soft matte finish on the lips or the cheeks.
Being a lip product addict, imagine my excitement when I saw this product. But to my dismay, I didn’t like this product on my lips because I found it too watery and streaky. On the cheeks, however, it’s quite lovely!
Color World Jewellish Stick Shadow in 05 Twinkle Green (10 g / $13)
This stick eyeshadow comes in a creamy, long-wearing, transfer-proof and crease resistant formula. It is said to come in a variety of colors for a flawless bold eye makeup.
Out of all the products in this box, this is the one that I have yet to try. Because, hello, it’s a green eyeshadow and I don’t usually reach for green eyeshadows like ever! I wish I got a darker color like a navy blue or a deep violet which could be handy for smokey eyes or may be used for lining the eyes.

This box was definitely a good one for me! The winners in my book are the Tonymoly 7 Days Tattoo Eyebrow in Dark Brown, the Style Y Soft Fit Mix & Match Pencil and Powder Shadow and the Style Y Color Fit Creamy Lip & Cheek (for the cheeks). I also really liked the Face Fit Strobe Cream!
