One Memebox that I will continue to buy, no matter what, is their regular Global Edition. I feel these regular numbered boxes are their best effort, and they cost just $23. I cannot tell you how quickly they sell out though - box 12, box 13 and box 14 are on sale now, if you want to give it a go. For those who miss out on the regular GE boxes, Luckyboxes contain a great selection from the previous boxes and cost $23 as well - click here to purchase.
Now for the unboxing and review of Memebox Global Edition Beauty Box 11.
Here are the products I received in Memebox Global Edition 11:
- Dear By Enprani Moistfull Booskin (Waittttt! I'll come to that in a minute)
- Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City (Ditto)
- Hope Girl Nail Travel Bling Bling Set
- Witch's Pouch Radiant Lolli Tint in shade #3 Funky Bloom
- Illi Fresh Moisture Body Lotion
- Illi Green Tea Brightening Mask
- Purederm Botanical Choice Pure Solution Eye Cream
Dear By Enprani Moistfull BooskinDear By Enprani is the same brand that made the amazing "Bounce Cheese Cream" - I don't think I have shown it to you yet; stay tuned! This "Booskin", it turns out, stands for "booster" and "skin toner". But apparently this is an "essence serum" that delivers deep hydration and nourishment. Thank goodness. I am not a toner-person. The fiddly things always peel up my skin and my derm had told me not to go near them.
Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema CityThis sort of packaging is a feature of Too Cool For School. This is a CC cream, which, as is the norm in these non-customised beauty boxes, is Too Pale For Moi. I could probably put together a BB/CC Cream-special beauty box by now and sell it to NC20-25 people!
Hope Girl Nail Travel Bling Bling SetThe packaging reminiscent of Too Faced contains three glitter polishes. All three are silver-based, and contain point, round and hex silver and holo glitter in varying sizes.
Witch's Pouch Radiant Lolli Tint in shade #3 Funky BloomAh, now this, I like. I do wish they had called it anything but Lolli Tint, for obvious reasons. But be that as it may, the colour is a nice fuchsia and It. Stays. On. If this tint could sing, it would go, "I shall not be; I shall not be moved..." On-lips swatch and detailed review later.
Illi Fresh Moisture Body LotionGoody! Ever since I began all-over moisturising twice a day, I go through body lotions the way some cars with poor mileage guzzle petrol. This is why I love beauty boxes. I have pretty much stopped buying body lotions now, although I admit to having a weakness for body butters, which I use at night.
Illi Green Tea Brightening MaskA 100 per cent cotton mask which is supposed to drench the skin with green tea, amino acids, minerals and organic acids. I cannot have enough sheet masks either. Good choice.
Purederm Botanical Choice Pure Solution Eye CreamAn eye cream! That too, a full-sized one! I love that Memebox is including eye care products in boxes of late and hope they do a special eye-care box. I would snap it up on the spot. This contains white flower complex and niacinamide. It does not say whether the prime target of this cream is dryness or puffiness or dark circles, but that is what I am here to find out, innit? Will tell you once I know.
I would go so far as to call this Memebox's best beauty box till date! I love that there are nail polishes, and a lip tint in what is primarily a skincare beauty box, and I am a sucker for full-sized eye creams. And I maintain that the regular Global Edition boxes are the pick of the lot, not only in terms of sample quantity, but also for the variety and quality of products sent out. I can use everything but the CC cream and that is a 10ml sample, and a hazard of all Korean beauty boxes. Best of all, Memebox has been remarkably consistent where the regular boxes are concerned - touch wood, though!

P.S. While Memebox ships to many countries, they have not reinstated shipping to Malaysia and several other nations where they used to have loyal customers. Please sign this petition to support our Meme-mates (I coined the term just now - woot!) from around the world so that the company reinstates shipping. Everyone deserves a Memebox.
