Just in time for the launch of the 2nd Pony x Memebox collaboration I will present you my review on their first collaboration, the Pony x Memebox Eyeshadow Palette. I knew that I needed this palette the first time I saw it on the Korean Memebox page. I really love the tutorials from the Korean Youtuber Pony and I can really recommend you to check out her Youtube videos :)
MeMeBox is a box service company, offering a wide amount of different beauty boxes. Unlike most western beauty boxes which have to be subscribed for on a monthly basis, MeMeBoxes can be preordered but that doesn’t force you to buy more than the desired box. They ship to many countries and the products they send in their boxes are mainly Korean. Apart from their monthly Global Boxes, they also have a huge amount of themed boxes,MiniBoxes, Boxes where you know what is inside, so called Superboxes with a higher value and so on (check out the links at the end of the post)…just check out their online store and you’ll find a huge selection of different boxes. Since they have become very popular within the blogger community they sell out pretty fast, but they bring up new beauty boxes so fast, that you cannot keep up with them anyways. That was at least my experience during this year. At the end of this post I will make a list of all the discounts they offer at the moment, too. At the moment they seem to be focusing on their own brand and some collaborations with well-known blogger in the asian beauty blogger community. One of their most famous collaboration is with the Korean Youtuber Pony, also known for her collaborations with Innisfree and Etude House. Her collaboration with Memebox resulted in two eyeshadow palettes, the second one just launched yesterday. Here, I will show you my impression of the first eyeshadow palette:
The Pony x Memebox eyeshadow palette comes in a cardboard packaging and has the size of a smartphone and is only slightly thicker than one. I would say it is a sleek packaging in simple black color with white font. The cardboard box contains descriptions of the product in Korean. It displays the name of the eyeshadows of the palette on the backside, too.
The backside of the palette itself also shows the expiration date and lists the names of the eyeshadow colors. The material of the palette is a matte plastic. It opens and closes nicely and makes the appearance of not easily flipping open, which means it can be carried around without big fears.
Openening the palette reveals 8 eyeshadow colors, two brushes and a clear plastic sheet for separating the eyeshadows from the mirror in the lid. The mirror fills the whole lid and is large and therefore useful. The plastic sheet also has the names of the eyeshadow colors printed on.
Four of the colors are matte and the other four colors are shimmery. I like that point a lot, because usually most asian eyeshadows are shimmery :D The brushes have a bistle side and a normal eyeshadow sponge applicator side. Actually I didn’t use them, because I had the feeling that these brushes cause more fall-off than my usual eyeshadow brushes.
Below, I prepared the swatches for the 8 colors on my arm. The difference between the four matte eyeshadows and the shimmery eyeshadows are quite obvious. I actually love all the shades, especially the shine rosegold shade.
You’ll find an quick eye make-up using the shimmery eyeshadows shine rosegold, shine gold and glam cocao. Sorry, I’m not the best makeup artsit for eyeshadow looks but I tried my best XD
The staying power is okay. It is even better when using an eye primer /eyeshadow base. I observed some fall-off when not using primer/base before. The colors are neutral and I think that everybody should have a couple of colors they love in this palette. The Pony x Memebox eyeshadow palette retails for 18 US$ on MeMeBox. As I said earlier, yesterday the second Pony x Memebox eyeshadow palette launched, which retails for 20 US$. There is a bundle for both palettes for 29 US$, which I think, is a perfect deal. They also have varoius other deals. If you are interested you might want to check out all offers >>here<<. Take advantage of the 5US$ coupon code you find below.
